Blue Drop - Tenshi no Bokura revised ch 7 plus omake
This is an old project revisited, one of my earliest fumbling attempts at scanlation as compared to my most recent fumbling attempts... Long story short, this manga was published in magazine format before being collected into book form. The scanlators worked from the magazine scans but for some reason chapter 7 of the twelve chapter story was missed out during the first run. Eventually someone released a scanlation of chapter 7 (taken from the volume 2 tanko, I think) but the scans were atrocious, really really bad I mean diabolically bad. A while later I got hold of decent raws of the chapter and edited and released my own version of this which sank without trace as the first bad version was already circulating and nobody seemed much interested in exchanging their original poor-quality scans for my better ones.
I now have a hard copy of both tanko volumes and I found there was an omake (extra) chapter at the end of volume 2, not something the magazines would ever have printed. I've just finished scanlating that and then for completeness sake I went back through my original version of chapter 7 and cleaned it up, retexted all the speech bubbles etc. to make it look better. I've also added scans of the dustjacket, the book covers and the author's note at the end of the book (although I've not translated that).

I repeat - this download only contains my version of chapter 7, the first chapter in volume 2 plus the scanlated omake at the end and the volume illustrations, cover artwork etc. and the author's note page (untranslated). If you want the entire set of 12 chapters you can find them on scan aggregator sites although there's a chance they have the old bad-quality chapter 7. There's also my 4shared account which has the 12 individual chapters stored there.
