Happy New Year 2014!

Happy Miss Dream Monday everyone, and an early Happy New Year 2014! With the new year just days away, we’re ending 2013 off with a bang!

Megumi Ogata “Half Moon” Translation

Half Moon by Megumi Ogata
(Japanese VA of Sailor Uranus)
First up is another CD translation thanks to the same anonymous patron as the previous one. This week, we are happy to put online Half Moon. This album is done by Sailor Uranus’s voice actress, Megumi Ogata. It is actually her very first CD release! This has been translated in the same vein as the other CDs, where we have static background videos with subtitles as the audio plays throughout. We hope you enjoy!

With those, our translation postings for 2013 have come to a close! It’s been a hell of a year here, with so much being done here the entire year. So much so, that I have finally written my first editorial here on Miss Dream. I present to you, the Miss Dream 2013 Year in Review! This piece covers everything we accomplished over 2013 in terms of translations, the massive raws section boom, and some fun behind the scenes stuff throughout. It’s been a great year, and looks to be a fun 2014!

Sailor Moon Perfect Edition “Kanzenban” HQ Scans

However we’re not done yet. As a holiday gift to celebrate the new year, we have raws that y’all are going to love. These were released last month and been highly requested ever since. Today to help ring in the new year, we have scanned volumes 1 and 2 of the Sailor Moon Kanzenban manga! This is the Perfect Edition manga which started its Japanese release in late November, and will have two volumes per month released. Each volume is bigger in both page size and content, where it is planned to consolidate all of the Sailor Moon acts and stories into ten volumes. These feature updated artwork and some text, and has color pages from what was previously only colored in Nakayoshi issues from the 1990s! These books are beautiful, and we are happy to provide such high-quality scans of them!

Nakayoshi Magazine Scans

As with every week, we will close out new content with Nakayoshi Rush. Nakayoshi magazine is a famous publication in Japan which has featured shoujo manga for many decades. Sailor Moon is one of many franchises that was featured in this magazine. News relating to any franchises serialized in Nakayoshi is usually posted within the magazine as well. This week, we have six issues ready instead of the normal five. We continue through 1990, first with a special Deluxe issue from May. Then we continue the regular editions from June all the way to October. Almost every issue today does have Naoko Takeuchi’s works contained within. The Deluxe May issue has her story “Boku no Pierce Girl,” while most of the normal editions contain chapters from “Maria.” There are lots of classic shoujo titles as well!

And that will end off the week! As with every week, I’d like to remind you that our garage sale is ongoing, where you can own the materials used to make these lovely scans! Also, please consider hiring us for your translation wants, we’d be happy to work on new projects for y’all! It’s been a great year, and we’re looking forward to an even better 2014! Enjoy everything we have, and we will see you next year! =D

    I can’t download the Kanzenban vol. 1 & 2. The direct download keeps getting interrupted. Could you add torrents for those? Thanks.

    My God! The quality! :O Did you buy a new scanner? I couldn’t find a single line like in some of your previous scans.

    So GORGEOUS! Thank you! :D

    “Half Moon” translated? Even better! :) I somewhat understood parts of the drama but now I get to read the whole story. Thanks :D Awesome update!

      If you’re talking about the Kanzenban scans, these were done manually in a flatbed scanner as opposed to the auto-feed we put the Nakayoshi through. However, we did just get new parts for the auto-feed which will take care of those lines. In any case, we’re happy to hear how much the scans are loved! =D
