LOL! I'll be sure to forward your message to Christopher who edited Saiyuki Gaiden c9 XD And yeah, it's our policy to edit out all the sfx... unless it's near impossible which it seldom (there's usually always a way to go around it unless there is too much to redraw from scratch). About fixing up the translation though, that was the proofreader's and my job and I had some extra help from our dear Karu on that front ^^
Heheh~ everyone's job is hard work! You, too, being a translator and all Thank YOU for translating Saiyuki Gaiden ^^ Translating is definitely not easy ^^ Only scanning is the easiest part of the whole process I'd say~ Time-consuming but definitely the easiest (especially when working with debinded manga books).
Anyway I'm glad you liked the final version
btw, have you read Wild Adapter? It sure is good!
Thanx to Joanne Kuang for the awesome avatar!
