Time for a change

When I first started this blog, I didn't have that many visitors, or that many files. It was pretty easy, just putting the images on a site like photo bucket and adding direct links from there. As time passed, I outgrew the extreme limitations imposed by photo bucket, and I switched to mediafire because it was free, and they offered lots of space with no restrictions on bandwidth (number of times the images were viewed or downloaded). However, on the technical side, their servers crashed often, and they'd occasionally lose files. But, eventually they'd get better again and the problems would disappear for a while. Unfortunately, at some point, they changed the way they handle their file linking, and now the links to the photo albums seem to be permanently dead. I apologize for the inconvenience.

I've decided to try to go back to the first blog entry and fix the broken page links one at a time, working from oldest to newest. This is going to take forever. At the moment, I've finished updating the entries up to the first Garo posts. Let me know if there's a problem getting into the photo album now.

  5. It's one of Tezuka's lesser-known works, so I doubt anyone else has translated it yet.

  6. ありがとうございました!!! I suceed to download the 3 files, I will enjoy the lecture/reading because of your great work archive/sharing! One moth ago I just discoverd "Garo" and also your blog, I've missed an exposition with original pages of Garo's mangaka in Paris, and I'm pretty sure this will be the only once! http://youtu.be/vamUiZjnLxk A month ago i didnt mangae to download your files, and today it works, I'm happy! We're lucky in France because vintage manga begin to been apreciated and edited. Theres so great artists and many visual expression in this magazine, thats fresh breath and freedom, when you see now (the very talented) mangaka but ... i dont know. I very like pages stories from Shinji Nagashima that you scanned! Thank you again, I wish you will enjoy your days in Japan! (Sorry for my bad english) Ganbatte!

  7. I discovered your blog a little while back and was rather disheartened at the dead links. I'm glad you've decided to do this.

  9. Don't remember if I already wrote it here, but thanks for your work. It's a great ressource on Garo. Even if I own a few issues, sometimes it's hard to remember exactly what's in them, some other are hard to find... This is useful.
