Our Captcha got owned
So our forums are kinda fucked.
The bots took over. I have over 40 pages of posts to approve.
I tell the Russian about this and tell him to close registration. He says,
"oh damn lol"
and does nothing about it.
That's how we roll, son.
After you've watched Joey Diaz go fucking crazy again, download these releases.
Alice in Hell 03 (!Alice03 !AIH03) - Now we get to Surisuri. Whatever the fuck that means.
I Am A Hero v01 (!IAAH10 !Hero10) - The new volume of I Am A Hero. Typesetting this chapter was a major pain the ass. You'll see why roughly halfway through. Next volume should be out around Febuary. Big thank you to dh85, laika and kyuubi for their work on the volume. They all worked really hard to get this done.
Odyssey ch03 (!Odyssey03 !Ody03) - This time for Afwicah~ What an awful song that was.
Also, we had two stupid mistakes in Sidonia no Kishi volume 06, so we re-uploaded it. !Sido06 !SNK06 are the triggers. Along with that, we have volume packs for Hito Hitori Futari v2-3. !Hito02 !Hito03 !Hitori02 !Hitori03.
Have a good night, cocksuckas.
Sidonia no Kishi v06
Welp, this is our usual "Hangover" release.
Had planned to release it on Sunday, didn't happen, slacked off for a few days, so... Here we are.
Sidonia no Kishi v06 (!Sido06 !SNK06) - Enjoyable volume. Thanks again to momimomi for translating it. We're now two volumes behind~ Yay~
Btw, we have a forums problem (The bots invaded again) so don't bother trying to post on it.
Have a fun weekend .-,
We're actually 7 years old now
Yay, we're a day older than we were yesterday.
I've been part of the group for all but a week. I joined about a week after they released their first chapter on November 11th 2005. It's been a really fun ride so far.
A big, big thank you to everyone in the group for their contributions, no matter how big or how small they were, over the years. I do a lot of work for this group, most people who are in this group know. But I wouldn't be able to make anything near the amount of releases we've been doing if I didn't get any help from translators, editors, QCers, the whole gang of you. I'd probably pissed off and frustrated.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Btw, wanna help us out? We need more staff. Translators, Editors & QCers. Contact me via email, IRC or on the forums. If I haven't answered your application yet, I will tomorrow. I've been busy these last few days (See rest of the post to see why).
Releases. We ended up with 46 total chapters today. We had 2 releases that were canceled (Don't ask), and 3 volumes that weren't done on time. 2 of which are totally Nitouryu's fault because he went drinkin' & fuckin' instead of cleanin'. That silly bitch.
Eight v03 (!Eight03 !Huit03) - A full volume of Eight, meaning we only have one volume left to go. Big thank you to eito who did the bulk of the work on the series while I sat around and did... Not much, really. `-')
Hito Hitori Futari 28-29 (!Hito28 !Hito29 !Hitori28 !Hitori29) - This concludes volume 3. That's the bad news. The good news is, volume 4 goes for sale in 2 weeks along with REAL v12. I got something to say about REAL later.
Koukou Tekken-den Tough v18-19 (!Tough18 !Tough19 !KKT18 !KKT19) - I should have worked on this much earlier, but unfortunately I didn't. Volume 18 has an interview with Peter Aerts while Volume 19 has an interview with Yuki Nakai. Both are BAD motherfuckers. Volume 18 also has one of my favorite fights in the whole series. And it also features Denis Rodman. Seriously.
Btw, expect more Koukou Tekken-den Tough by the end of the year.
Master Keaton ch20 (!Keaton20 !MK20) - Russians, Russians everywhere! Are they really Russians, though? I dunno, yo. They don't look all that Russian to me. They don't act like it either, man.
Oniwakamaru v04 End (!Oniwa04 !OTV04) - And this fun little monster manga comes to an end. I thought it was a fun ride while it lasted. One more Saruwatari manga completed, something like 20 more to go. I've got my work cut out for me. Big thank you to zindryr for translating the series, I love you buddy.
Rookies 215 (!Rookies215 !Rook215) - This concludes v22 as they go into their next game. The drama builds...!
Alright, some small updates for all six of you who care:
-REAL v12 goes for sale in 2 weeks. Right now, I don't have a translator for it because Molokidan's retired. So, if you know someone who's competent and would like to do a volume of REAL, forward him my way. Thanks~
-I Am A Hero v10 is scanned & mostly cleaned. I have a translator for it, but he's busy because of a lot of things, so his translations won't be instantaneous. Be patient, okay? .-,
Project update time as we head towards the end of the year~
Alright, so I promised it before and kinda forgot about it, so I might as well do it now.
We have our anniversary two weeks from now, almost day for day, so stay tuned for that.
But before projects, some important updates:
Website: So here's the deal. It's not really a project as much as it is just an information center of sorts, but I need to give an update on it anyway... Basically vrex (webmaster) doesn't know how to fix the Projects page without fucking up the whole website. So unless there's someone out there who's either a) Willing to make us a new website or b) Try to fix our problem, it's probably gonna stay like this.
Staff: We always need new staff. I know that I don't always answer right away, but I do answer. Someone told me they applied on the forums and I never answered them, but I never found their application on the website. We need everything except typesetters and scanners. Seriously, everything. If we had a couple of extra hands here & there, especially in terms of editing, we'd be releasing much more often.
By the way, check the credit pages for everything we've released in the last year. It's not a coincidence that you'll see the same 2-3 people on almost every chapter with a different translator. We had someone who was gone for a whole month (August & early September). End result, we barely released anything. So if one of us either quits or disappears, the group is in big-time trouble.
So, again, if you enjoy our releases and enjoy the type of series we release (and will be releasing), please consider helping out. We're an IRC-based group, but really, IRC isn't hard to use. It really, really isn't.
Illum: So I've kinda stopped posting updates on it because we haven't been uploading as much. We've recently made an H folder because the two Germs (Icedmand and eito) asked for it, but they haven't actually uped much to it. We've also started uploading some TV series, click here to check the packlist. So what we're going to do is continue uploading series we'd recommend you read, which includes the recently completed Baka to Gogh. We'll also be uploading some new TV series (Probably the stuff that comes out on Sunday nights) assuming I can get Zenquibo or BindeR or someone to actually up 'em, because I can't. If I had unlimited bandwidth, you'd bet your ass I would.
Now onto the projects...
Alice in Hell - We release the chapters a few days after we get the translations. Our translator, momimomi, also translates Sidonia no Kishi for us and Sprite for Death-Toll. He translates when he has a chance.
DoLL - Currently waiting on pnyxtr to complete the chapters, but he's been afk for a while.
Eight - The project manager, eito, is currently on a mini-vacation of sorts. I call it a vacation, but really I'm not sure what it is. All I know is that he's using some piece of shit laptop without a mouse and without his cleans & trans on his home PC. So whenever he's back home, we'll continue with the project.
Full Metal Panic Sigma - We just caught up to the most recently published volume in Japan. I heard that volume 18 is going for sale on December 9th, but I don't really see it announced anywhere, so it's just a question of wait and see at this point.
Hito Hitori Futari - We've got two more chapters to do before completing volume 3. Volume 4 is scheduled to go for sale on November 19th.
I Am A Hero - Volume 10 goes for sale in three days, October 30th. I can't wait.
Idiot Section Chief - Basically, Molokidan's retired from scanlations (again) and we don't have a translator for it. Unless he decides to come back to translate it or we get another translator to pick up from where he left off, the series is stalled and will most likely get dropped.
Inherit The Stars - The series recently ended with 4 total volumes. We're just waiting on our translator, methanol, to translate. Whenever he does, we releases days later.
Koukou Tekken-den Tough - I promise that you'll see something soon. I need one skilled editor and this series will take off running. Because the huge barriers stopping this series from getting done more often are a mix of me and the lack of a redrawer.
Master Keaton - We pretty much release the chapters as they get translated, really. Master Keaton Remaster's next chap comes out in December around Christmas time.
Mephisto - See Idiot Section Chief. Same status.
Odyssey - Translator is busy atm.
Oniwakamaru The Visitor - We have one volume left before complete the series. We'll be doing a volume release to wrap things up when it'll be done.
Oton - Still waiting for volume 3 to go for sale.
REAL - Next volume goes for sale on November 23rd, if I remember correctly.
Rookies - We're one chapter away from finishing volume 22. We'll be then two full volumes and one special away from completing the series. I think it's fair to think we'll have it completed in 2013.
Shamo - Basically, we don't have a translator for it right now. I've shown it to a few people I know & none have bitten (yet, anyway). We have volume 27 completely cleaned & sitting in our ftp. I just received volume 28 in the mail. I fully intend to continue working on Shamo, but unless I find a translator for it...
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi - Kuthrow is busy irl, so the project is stalled.
Sidonia no Kishi - See Alice in Hell. We'll release the next chap ocne we receive a translation for it.
Suicide Island - Volume 06 was originally planned to be a chapter by chapter release, it's probably going to end up being a volume release again. Reason being, the editor (Nitouryu) is busy raping whores and beating up bums in the streets of Riga, so he's going to basically do all of the editing for the whole volume in one shot. I also need to get a hold of Uruner, the translator for Death-Toll to talk to him about who's going to be doing what starting from volume 7. But allegedly he's on a boat somewhere and hasn't come back to shore yet.
...If you have specific questions about the series, ask away.
Future Projects - As always, I have some future projects in mind. Everything I have in mind is short and sweet. Most have one volume. In any case, over the next year or so, you can expect some Saruwatari Tetsuya, some Hoshino Yukinobu, possibly some more Tsutomu Takahashi, some Toyoda Tetsuya, maybe some Otomo Katsuhiro, possibly something from Masanori Morita, something from Hanazawa Kengo... Lots and lots of plans.
Bye bye, gotta make dinner.
Hito Hitori Futari 27
Want something to watch? We uploaded Boardwalk Empire on Illum.
Download that shit, son. http://126.96.36.199/packlists/illuminati.txt
Hito Hitori Futari 27 (!Hito27 !Hitori27) - Cruuuuuuuunch.
I'm goin' down to see mahhh Highway giiiiiiirl.
Oi, Rusky! Embed a video for me!
Alice in Hell ch02 (!Alice02 !AIH02) - The next chapter of Alice in Hell. It's another 40 pages, so enjoy!
Eight 21-22 (!Eight21 !Eight22 !Huit21 !Huit22) - And this concludes volume 2.
So I was typesetting this Keaton chap, finished it, sent it for QC, and my QCer informs me that it's not lasagna but in fact, lasagne with an E.
.:21·05·40:. «!GGpX-Sleep» neh neh dh85
.:21·05·45:. «!GGpX-Sleep» lasagne isn't English
.:21·05·47:. «!GGpX-Sleep» o_o)
.:21·05·58:. «!GGpX-Sleep» It's French and probably Italian
.:21·07·08:. «@dh85» lasagne is plural
.:21·07·20:. «@dh85» and it's the way we address to that :|
.:21·07·51:. «@dh85» it's an italian word and recipe which i eat hundreds of time a year, i should know o_o
.:21·08·45:. «@dh85» http://www.romagnamania.com/imgs/ricette/lasagne_02.jpg
.:21·09·01:. «@dh85» (although lasagne alla milanese is a slightly different recipe)
.:21·12·13:. «!GGpX-Sleep» I eat lasagna 3-4 times a year.
.:21·12·14:. «!GGpX-Sleep» A shame.
.:21·12·43:. «@dh85» then start calling it lasagne! :D
.:21·13·02:. «!GGpX-Sleep» I do. In French, silly.
.:21·13·11:. «!GGpX-Sleep» Although the dictionary.com says either or works.
.:21·13·22:. «@dh85» just lasagna is one single "layer" of pasta
.:21·13·37:. «@dh85» it's like spaghetti, a single one is spaghetto
.:21·13·57:. «!GGpX-Sleep» A single one is a poor man's dinner.
.:21·14·05:. «!GGpX-Sleep» `-')
.:21·14·08:. «@dh85» that's for sure
.:21·14·20:. «@dh85» so it is a single lasagna :)
So in short, dh85 lives up to the Italian stereotype of a pasta eater extraordinaire.
Hito Hitori Futari 26 (!Hito26 !Hitori26) - Three chapters left until the volume is wrapped up.
Master Keaton 19 (!Keaton19 !MK19) - See lasagne convo above.
Also, fuck the Yankees.
Full Metal Panic Sigma v17
It's been a few years in the making, but we've finally caught up to Full Metal Panic Sigma.
Full Metal Panic Sigma v17 (!Sigma17 !FMPS17) - Thank you to dh85, Kv9124 & illiteracy for QCing and to Yukio & laika for the numerous t/l checks. Much appreciated, guys. Now we're just waiting for volume 18 to go for sale. We don't know when that'll be, but when it does we'll get to work on it. There's probably 2 more volumes left to go in the series, at the pace things are going now.
If I wasn't strapped for time, I'd be making an "update" post on our other series. But alas, I need to shower and go to bed soon.
