congrats mike, on your 1,000th post.
Kagura is awesome in that pic. :o
Why not ask someone from MH to help you translate it? I think there's a guy that translates all the new raws and I don't think he would mind helping translate the gaps.

Yah we did. He doesn't plan on filling the big-ass gap (vol 7 - 11), but the minor gaps up top he already plans to do some of 'em. I'll see how much it is for a plane ticket to Japan in case we need to send Mike there. He's the FC leader after all.
