Thou Shalt Not Die // Kimi Shi ni Tamou Koto Nakare – PV

During Yoko Taro’s appearance on the 27-hour broadcast marathon on NicoNico to promote the PS4 release of Gravity Daze, he promoted his up-coming game NieR: Automata that is currently in the works, developed by Platinum Games.

He also showed a new PV for the first time to promote his manga series “Thou Shalt Not Die // Kimi Shi ni Tamou Koto Nakare”, illustrated by Moriyama Daisuke.

I’m still getting some very good vibes that we will see much more of this series in the future… <3

This is the first time that I’m using new software to record live video and edit the footage, so I’m pretty happy with it thus far. The audio problems in this clip are due to the fluctuating buffer rate in the original NicoNico broadcast.

The image that I used for the thumbnail of this video was an image that I scanned of the manga cover. You can purchase the first two volumes of the manga on Amazon here:

Vol. 1

Read my previous post regarding this event here. →

This past week was crazy busy at school with the end of Term 2 and all grades were due by the end of Friday. As a sort of gift to myself, I purchased a ticket to attend Moriyama Daisuke’s comic release party in Shinjuku. Since it was an all-night event, I also booked a room at a hotel in town.

MANGA: Thou Shalt Not Die – Chapter 1


I’ve finished with the complete translation work on the first chapter of Yoko Taro’s new manga series, “Thou Shalt Not Die”. This first chapter was published in Big GanGan 2015 Vol.01 on December 25th, so I guess a 2 day turn around on 70 pages isn’t too bad, no? xD (Please click the image above to read the chapter.)

The front cover of this issue also features a gorgeous design of Captain Usuki and Botan from the manga series.

For anyone who is looking to purchase the issue of Big GanGan for your own collection, please let me know. I would like to help people support the creators and artists who bring us this awesome stuff as much as possible. Not only is the first chapter of TSND in this issue but so is the final issue of “Utahime Five”, too!!
