Faster Than Printed Edition

Yesterday, i downloaded a manga for a famous japanese comic book in Indonesia, Samurai Deeper Kyo, written by Akimine Kamijyo Kodansha. The latest printed edition in Indonesia was 33, but i found (with some information of my friend in YM) for a site which has scanlation on the japanese version and translate it into english language. They have finished most of them and i have download edition 34 up to 38 and read it last night. Edition 34 starts with the fight of Kyo and his teams against Fubuki and Hishigi and it continues to 35. It was a nice fight. You should see it by yourself when the printed edition is available. All i can tell you is that it ended with a happy ending.

The bad thing is, some of the translation hasn't been integrated in the image files, so they provide some kind of translation text which has to be downloaded manually (it's small though), and it's very uncomfortable to switch between the images and the text file over and over, but by looking at it, i don't have to buy the books anymore, since it's quite expensive and it will save me five editions, which equals to 55000 rupiahs.
