Vamp! I - Chapter 3

(Download the updated version in PDF/epub format here.)

There's just one update left until the end of this volume, so I'd like to encourage you to participate in the name-spelling discussion if you haven't! I'm going to upload the pdf with the next update, which means that spellings will be set in stone at that point.

Enjoy the new chapter!

Vamp! I - Chapter 2

(Download the updated version in PDF/epub format here.)

That took a while, but it was worth it. Here is Chapter 2 of Vamp! Set aside some time, because it's a loooooooong update.

Also, there are more name spellings to talk about at the end of this update. I'm also looking for some clarification on vampire lore, so please take a stab at it!

Vamp! I - Chapter 1

(Download the updated version in PDF/epub format here.)

Hello, everyone! Here is the first chapter of Vamp!

As for the character name debate, thank you everyone for all your input! I didn't get a chance to reply to all the comments, but I've read them all and made what are hopefully the final decisions. Ferret is still Ferret, but I'm waiting for more suggestions for her name (whether you want to keep it that way or otherwise), so please make your voices heard!

Also, I will be working on a pdf of this volume. I'll do my best to post it at the same time as the final update.

In other news, volume 17 of Baccano (1711:Whitesmile) has just been released in Korea! It hasn't come in the mail yet, but rest assured that I will get to work on it as soon as I finish this volume of Vamp.

(Download the updated version in PDF/epub format here.)

The prologues are here! It'll be a while until the next update, since Vamp chapters are really really long. Enjoy!

Vamp! I - Colour Pages

(Download the updated version in PDF/epub format here.)

Ladies and gentlemen! Here is the first update of Vamp, a story about vampires written by the excellent Ryogo Narita.

Unfortunately, I could not get a hold of decent scans for a good majority of the illustrations in this book. This is why the illustrations that were not included in the Baccano art book have been unskilfully scanned by yours truly from the Korean volumes in my possession. If anyone could provide me with a full set of illustration scans, I would appreciate it very much. Problem solved! Thanks everyone for the links!

On another note, I know absolutely nothing about German and other related languages. Which can be quite the obstacle when you're trying to figure out (pseudo-)German names from Japanese. When I am having problems with figuring out name spellings, I will set aside a section at the end of the update asking for help from the readers. In fact, there's one such section at the end of this very update.

Thank you, and I hope you enjoy this new series!
