I can Attest to the latter being the case. For this series the "original file" requirement is pretty much an insurmountable hurdle. It's practically impossible to get the original files for this series, due to a SHITTON of factors.  Allow me to list some of them. The shear Number of  groups have worked on the project, group overlaps, said groups shut down, gone under, or going completely inactive, sites shutting down, files missing removed and or corrupted, dead link not updated, &/or their file host/s getting taken down by certain government agencies that will remain unnamed. The other problem is there are a TON of scanlation groups involved in this series scanlations. Many of whom are now defunct/inactive & have been for years with their sites shut down. One other thing to note is that I can think of at least ONE volume where the original file is actually a bad/corrupt release rectified later on by releasing a separate download to replace the corrupted chapter/pages in the archive. This means that it HAS to be repacked.

I've actually been working on this on on a torrent for this one for well over two years as well and have held off offering it for the reason you just named, & the reasons I have named that have prevented it. The original file restriction is pretty much an unpassable hurdle for a complete hokuto no ken manga release. I have actually contacted Jarudin about this in the past DUE to this very factor.

I never asked for all of the original files for this series. I know very well by personal experience that it's generally very tough to obtain all the original files of a long-running project if you've caught upto it late.. The requirement we have is "Use original files whenever available". If it isn't available at all anywhere, or if the original files are corrupt everywhere, then we do allow unofficial files.

Over here, I'm mainly talking about this particular link that FREEZER sent over http://www.ftusa.org/rapeyouface/Fist/
Those are the chapters [Volume 8 Chapter 05 through Volume 27 ch10] and since FREEZER provided the link for alternate downloading, I'd assume that there is nothing wrong with those files? If that's the case, we would prefer those files be used, since FREEZER said those were the original ones.
Also, does what you said apply to Project Bite Me!'s releases also?

If you are referring to the corrupted volume 7 chapter 7... I just checked & it seems they have fixed it, since I Last posted about it. Evidently its fairly recent. Because i know as of that posting it was still a screwed up archive & download. I know for the longest time it was EXTREMELY hard to find due to a combination of all of the above listed reasons, combined with what i believe may have been host bandwidth issues/restrictions. and I DO have a number of the official/original Archives as downloaded from the groups themselves, including a couple of the harder to find volumes (which incidentally are some of the poorest quality) incase they need supplying. Just ask And I can figure out a way to email or send them.

EDIT: Okay... looking at my back up and it appears that I have lost a LOT of my Hokuto no Ken Original Archives that I painstakingly hunted down. I think I may have accidentally deleted them when cleaning up my computer and making room to switch back from my external harddrive which has gone kaput. This kinda pisses me off because I was rather proud of that archive... I spent a LOT of time and effort hunting down those files.

Here's a List of what Remains of my archive from where i was assembling the torrent in a separate folder.

Freezer, I just need one more confirmation on this..

Regarding your first comment again, are these the original files? http://www.ftusa.org/rapeyouface/Fist/
If so, please swap 'em in. I've heard contradictory versions, hence verifying.

Also, could you get the original files from eatkeniii [which are still in his possession] and compare and which have better quality?

Haven't heard from him in a couple weeks but we ARE in contact & sorting things... slowly. I'm Still waiting on him to let me know which files he needs me to send. Last I heard from him he said that he'd see what he had and let me know what ones he needed.  That was back on the 25th. Yeah pretty much any torrent of Fist of the North Star is a bit of a clusterfuck & a logistical nightmare to work/sort out & find original files for, speaking from first hand experience. I have no doubt that's part of why it's taking so long.

Okay man. Upload it somehwere please. I asked at his site, but just in case i don't get an answer :P. Also can you please upload whatever old version you have of volume 1-5 as well, because i'd like to compare those with the ones i got from Illuminati's bot.

Ow yeah, v3 chapter 3 from illuminati's also has a corrupted chapter 3 (it starts at page 33 and then jumps to page 46). Not sure if i should delete the first page though... The rest might be alright. Otherwise it would be one REALLY LONG chapter.

Fist_of_the_North_Star_v01[Matr-ix]
Fist_of_the_North_Star_v02[Matr-ix][mangazone]
Fist_of_the_North_Star_v03[Delinquent-Manga]
Fist_of_the_North_Star_v04[Delinquent-Manga]
Fist_of_the_North_Star_v05[Delinquent-Manga]
Fist_of_the_North_Star_v06
Hokuto no Ken Volume 7 Complete - [Project Bite Me Scans]
Hokuto no Ken Volume 8 Chapter 1 - [Project Bite Me Scans]
Hokuto no Ken Volume 8 Chapter 2 - [Project Bite Me Scans]
Hokuto no Ken Volume 8 Chapter 3 - [Project Bite Me Scans]
Hokuto no Ken Volume 8 Chapter 4 - [Project Bite Me Scans]
bk08ch05
...
bk27ch10

And of course i renamed these (v 1-7 + v8 chapters 1-4) to match the rest.

Keep those original names, they actually sound better. Or if the ones eatkeniii had were the original names, even better use those.

Sent it to him... Just to let you know it is a one off that isn't connected to the rest of the series. Fist of the Blue Sky AKA Souten no Ken actually follows it closer than the original series does.

For that reason I think it would be better to offer it as a separate torrent as it isn't really related to the rest of the series.

Until Volume 8, Chapter 4, Use the original names that you had.

Also, more opinions on the Pilot manga? A Pilot manga technically comes in the beginning. So is it present in the beginning of Hokuto or Souten? Which was it officially released for?
