Releases, April 24th 2010 and some announcements
First, the announcements;
Sekai no Owari to Yoakemae is dropped. Kotonoha picked it up virtually at the same time we did and they did a great job with it.
Eden is dropped. Long time coming. illiteracy wanted to finish volume 13 a while back but it's dead pretty much.
Oshitone Tenzen is dropped. All of the people working on the series has quit or retired and the remaining staff doesn't care much for the project.
Koukou Tekken-den Tough is stalled. I just don't have enough time to translate, scan and typeset/qc it. When I do, I'll restart working on it.
Mephisto is stalled. The translator is busy with real life stuff - school, job, online novel, girlfriend and occasionally translating - and other projects of his. So when he has the time, we'll continue.
My Street is stalled. There just hasn't been any work or effort towards working on the series in a while.
Sengoku is stalled. We have a lot of scripts, but nobody to work on it. Until we have an editor for the series, it'll remain stalled.
If you have questions about the projects, ask in the comment section.
Speaking of which, we're looking for another typesetter for Shonan Jun'ai Gumi. We've currently translated up to chapter 92 in volume 11 and I'll be translating quite a bit these days because of my bandwidth limit. We also have a few a chapters already cleaned out. If anybody's willing to help us out, we'll be able to finish the current arc rather speedily then start the best arc in the whole series, the Midnight Angels arc. Apply on the forums or PM me on IRC.
Now, the releases.
Holyland 74-75 (!Holy74 !Holy75)
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi 87 (!SJG87)
Long time coming, of sorts.
"Hello Peter." is what a wise Russian once said.
What is wise about it, you may ask? Hell if I'd know.
So today... We have some releases. We didn't get everything that we wanted out, but we got most of it out.
Boku to Issho 28 (!Boku28) - Visit and thank the people at MangaScreener when you have a chance.
Idiot Section Chief 04 (!Idiot04) - Chapter four, about joining a select club and fees. Very interesting.
Saru Lock 36-38 (!Saru36 - !Saru38) - This has been a long time coming. We're releasing three chapters today, which means we only have two more chapters until the end of volume 04 and the current arc. The redrawing is still as difficult as always, so if you're a skilled redrawer and want to help out... We'd greatly appreciate it.
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi 85-86 (!SJG85 - !SJG86) - Here are chapters 85 & 86 as things start to heat up. The current typesetter is on vacation so there'll be a tiny delay for ch87.
That's all for today.
Jackals is (finally) out.
This has been a long time coming, but it's finally done.
This will be Strays's final release. They'll be closing down their site at the end of the month. So go visit their site and give them a big thank you for everything they worked on in their three year existence. We'll be working on Jackals solo from this point on.
We're releasing Jackals Volume 03 (!Jack03) today. Come and get it.
Be online for Friday afternoon, we'll probably have another release then.
Looking for Raws from Young King Ours #05
we're looking for raws from Young King Ours #05 for the Trigun oneshot and the oneshot by Boichi.
We're definitely going to do the Trigun oneshot, and probably do the Boichi oneshot assuming we can find someone to translate it. Maybe I could bug zindryr. .-.;
So yeah, if you can find me the raws, drop me a line.
Special release [Homunculus] and [Holyland]
New releases, March 20th 2010 Edition
it's been a little while since I've made a [relevant] news post...
Anyway, I'm tired as hell, don't have much to say except give you the details of the releases.
Me & The Devil Blues ch17-28 [We've caught up to where it's at in Japan] (!Devil17 !Devil18 !Devil19 !Devil20 !DevilV04) - This concludes volume 3 and we're releasing the fourth volume in it's intirety... Is that even a word? Fuck it, I don't even care right now. Anyway. Now comes the problem... We don't know if the series was put on hiatus by the author or was discontinued altogether. We've seen different answers from different sites; MU said it was on Hiatus until recently, where it changed the status to discontinued. If someone is hooked up to these kind of things and is willing to let us know, we'd be pretty happy. If it does continue one day and we're still around, we'll pick it back up. In the mean time, do yourselves and the mangaka a favor. Buy this fucking series. I know I have---Well technically I've bought the first book by Del Ray, I'll be buying the second one shortly once I find it for sale here.
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi ch84 (!SJG84) - There was a small delay on SJG because the project leader, Kuthrow, had some real life issues to take care of before spending time on scanlations. Now that he's back, you can expect 85 in a few days hopefully... Bad news is, the author of this poorly written post will have to get back to translating... Sigh. The author sheds a tear at the thought of more work.
Town of Evening Calm, Country of Cherry Blossoms (!Town) - Now I know what you're thinking... This has already been scanlated by Kotonoha. That's correct. Thing is, Dille had the book and wanted to scan it, so he did. This is the official release. Like with Me & The Devil Blues, do yourselves and the mangaka a favor by purchasing the official English volumes.
On an unrelated note... If there are some Europeans from Spain/Portugal reading this... I want to make a good paella for a family get together with my uncles & aunts in a few months (Early July), but the problem is 1) I don't know the right spices & seafood for it 2) And I don't know the proper way of making it! So if you think you can help me out, send me an email. Much appreciated.
Have a good one.
Bug On a Lion edition releases.
Okay so releases today:
Idiot Section Chief 03 (!Idiot03) - Newest chapter, download it on IRC.
Trigun Rising (!Rising) - A 30 page oneshot to celebrate the release of the Trigun movie. It was authored and drawn by Takeyama Yuusuke. It's a short story that focuses on Rai of the Blade. There will be three more Trigun-related short stories to come out in the next two months. Two short stories by Nightow, the Trigun mangaka and a oneshot by Boichi. Assuming good raws are available and the kind people at www.raw-paradise.come don't put those disgusting watermarks on them, we'll be doing all three chapters.

Hard labor for almost no money and four meals over a 2 day period

Took me a fucking hour to get dressed after showering.
So... Ummm... If some of you tried to contact me this weekend, sorry. I was helping my dad with renovations at his apartment. I should be around tomorrow afternoon.
