Second post in a day because I don't want to cram too many things in one post. Here are the extra materials and images that are released in DGM Volume 20. I must confess I haven't been this excited since the release of the DGM fanbook and Noche, and the information here are absolutely precious. I mean, what can I say, I adore the Asian Branch if you haven't notice ;D

Also, it is revealed that Volume 21 will be released in November.

Inner Cover of Volume 20

Title: Volume 20 Behind the Scenes
Here, the Earl is taking a 30-minute break from his work as a stuntman.
His next scene is the 'Allen and Tyki crashing onto the Earl' scene.
And he's happy that he's able to work on such action scenes even at this age.
Lavi, on the other hand, is another stuntman because he's just too free.
Same for Timcanpy, who's working part-time as the road doll.

And Tyki asked Allen (calling him shounen) if he wants to add nails to the soles of their shoes before they make this scene XD

Edgar, Touyi and Zuu's Profiles

Asian Branch Chief Assistant: Edgar Chang Martin (43)
Bak’s father. Born in Germany.
He’s from the Chang clan branch family that possesses the blood of the German magician who was one of the founders of the Black Order.
His marriage to Touyi had been decided before their birth.
He’s a good-looking man, but he can't pull off (or 'is bad at being fashionable with') messy long hair.
Loves Touyi very much. A bit of a crybaby. Died during Alma’s rampage.
Birthday: 10th April. Aries. Bloodtype: O

Asian Branch Chief Touyi Chang (39)
Bak’s mother. Inherited ancient magic and is the Head of the Chang clan.
She’s in charge of the technical side of the ‘Second Apostle Project’
The regeneration ability that Yu and Alma possess is a secret skill created by the Chang clan.
Zuu is Touyi’s uncle and the older brother of the previous Branch Chief who is Touyi’s father.
In hopes that her heir, Bak would one day succeed as the Supervisor and change the negative aspects of the Order, he was given strict education.
When Alma went on a rampage, Renee managed to escape from the lab but she herself was killed by Alma.
Birthday: 29th September. Libra. Bloodtype: A

Manufacturer of Anti-Akuma Weapons (Also the Head Chef of the Asian Branch) Swordsmith Zuu Mei Chang (Age unknown)
Formerly a great magician of the Chang clan who held a high position and wields a substantial power in the Central.
He was the teacher of a younger Leverrier and one of the few people that addresses him as ‘Malcolm’.
He’s also a master in culinary, and happens to be the master of Jeryy, the current Head Chef of the Headquarters.
Even though he wasn’t directly involved in the ‘Second Apostle Project’, he couldn’t ignore his own guilt.
He usually showed up in the research lab's kitchen to watch over the state of affairs.
He seems to be carrying some kind of great sin and after many years, those feelings of guilt still torment him.

Additional Images: Link & Timcanpy; Alma & Kanda

Special Thanks Page (or as I call it, THE COVER THAT NEVER MADE IT)

Go on, compare this with the Volume 20 cover and tell me you can't see the resemblance in their poses XD
Make what you will of it ;D
In the place of Timcanpy, we have Yoshi, the diabolical bunny.

Panels that has been touched-up

Most of the background of Bak's panels were fixed, so that it actually looks like they are still underground.
The rest were more or less the same since the drawing was top notch over the last couple of chapters.

Though, I just couldn't figure out why Hoshino chose to fix the bubble in Allen's panel.
Obviously the symbols were funnier :/

Ah, thanks so much! =)

Learning more about the Asian Branch is interesting. But it makes the recent chapters even sadder...

Thank you for your comment again! ;D

I absolutely adore the Asian Branch and Bak's family were definitely a welcomed addition to it. But yes, after finding out that Edgar and Touyi are indeed Bak's parents, I feel extremely sorry for that man, and Fou too T_T

The special thanks page WOULD look better as the cover. We never see Kanda look so... relaxed? XD

Yes, it would really make so much more sense if that page was the real cover instead. At least, it would be directly related to the recent arc XD I have nothing against the latest cover, but this would have been so much better :3

No problem! ;)

All the extra materials in this volume are really treats to the fans XD Especially for those who adore the Kanda flashback arc. And me, I'm just glad that it has been confirmed that Edgar and Touyi are indeed Bak's parents ;)

Hee! And Hoshino is just so afraid of him XD But then again, Editor Y did ask Hoshino to switch the Volume 8 cover to the Bak/Fou one, so I can't fault him and his ideas too XD

Then again, I doubt the Kanda/Alma is actually a cover, though I do like to point out the resemblance it shared with the Volume 20 cover XD

Oh, please do when you can! Volume 20 is such a treat with all the additional materials and Chapter 193.5, it's a good purchase :)

Thank you so much!
Can I share it with Russian funs too? I want to translate it into Russian.

As for this one, I can assure you that the profiles are accurate but for the inner cover, I think there are some mistakes so please don't use mine. I recall seeing someone translate this a while ago but I can't seem to find it.

Good luck with the translation. It'd be nice if you can drop me a link to your translation/post when you choose to do it :)

Well, if I find another translation, I will use it too.
Of course, there will be link for you when I'm done!

And here also the translation of profiles. A friend of mine promised to clean the scans, I'll tell you when he is done also!
Again, thanks a lot!

Thanks for letting me know! :)

Also, do you still need the translation for the inner cover? (Cause the one above have some mistakes)

Yeah, sure! Russian fans do hang me if I don't bring them cookies ^__^
