I'm in the DBE spirit, I suppose. Pointless yelling and powerups and stuff. I dunno.
Anyway. Need staff, especially Editors & Quality Checkers. Apply on the forums. We're going to try to get the ball rolling for Riki-Oh and FMP Sigma in May. Hopefully these can get going.
So, today's releases...
First, we have My Street 5 (!MStreet05) in a joint with The Rabbit Reich (Big thanks .-,). This concludes the first volume of the series. Three more to go! (I like how these volumes are small. :) )
Second, we have Riki-Oh 60-64 (!Riki60 - !Riki64) which also concludes the volume. Volume 10, done. Volume 11 only has 4 chapters, as it contains a oneshot by Saruwatari Tetsuya at the end about the jungle or something. Then volume 12 is 250 or so pages with a oneshot at the end as well. However, it contains 7 chapters.
Just a quick note... Finals are coming right around the corner for a lot of people, so the people involved will be focusing on school.
That's all, have a good one.
Forum security measures
phpBB captcha was cracked & fingered by spambots or something like that, I'm not aware of details..
Therefore while waiting for 3.0.5 version(patch) I enabled Queued posting with 1 post limit. Means, new users(yes YOU, our precious new applicant) with 0 posts will have to wait, until I come around and approve your post.
I found one thing Nihei Tsutomu can't draw well.
It's semi-naked chicks. He's just not that good at it. :(
Everything else, though, I think he's pretty damn good.
So today, we have some releases! Houray! One new project, and one (kinda) new project! .-.;
Battle Royale 2 Chapter 13. Thanks to Chas for working on this while nobody else really seemed to want to. Myself included. .-.; !BR13
Saru Lock Chapter 28. So this took nearly 2 months to do. Look at the redraws and the difficulty and you'll know why. Maybe not, but try anyway. I might sound like a broken record, but we need Editors. The faster we get Editors that are up to our standards, the faster we release some Saru. Simple as that. Unless you enjoy waiting many weeks for a new chapter. !Saru28
Sengoku Chapters 8-10. This concludes volume 1 and begins volume 2. If anybody wants to be a permanent typesetter for this series, PM me on IRC. We have all of volume 2 cleaned and translations from akika (You rock <3) until chapter 35 or so. So... Yeah. !Sen8 !Sen9 !Sen10
And now, the new (sorta) projects:
Sidonia no Kishi Chapter 1. This is Nihei Tsutomu's (Blame!, Biomega, Abara) new serialization in the Afternoon magazine. I'm a big Nihei fanboy, so I couldn't help it. By the way, I appologize for making the pages a little dusty, but I'll be redoing the chapters once the tankobons come out. We're jointing with the nice people of Vagrant-Scans ( #Vagrant@irc.rizon.net ) for this manga. Please pay them a visit. !Sido1
Shonan Jun'ai Gumi Chapter 74. Huuuuuuh? Didn't we drop this a while ago? Yeah, we did. Remember when I said that in Nitouryu's April Fools post that among all the bullshit he posted that there was something true in it? So, yeah.This is it. I've always maintained that this is a project that I really like, but that we never had the people to work on it. Well, now Kuthrow is taking care of the project, and all I have to do is translate & QC. If you want to help out, contact Kuthrow on IRC or on the forums. !SJG74
Welp, as usual, apply if you want to help out.
What Comes Around Goes Around
Mephisto ch09 on irc (!Mep9).
Okay, before I begin, I just need to do some begging.
Our distro bot's owner, [Madocchi], needs help paying for the bot. I don't ever beg for donations, because honestly I don't like to. But this is our archive bot, and we're pretty dependant on it to make our releases. If you could spare some money to help pay for the bot, everyone here would be extremely thankful!
Donate at kindan.no.aku [at] gmail [dot] com . Thanks.
Now, for the releases.
First up, we have Holyland 45 (!Holy45). The fight versus Katou is over, now let's watch the aftermath.
Then we have Mephisto 8 (!Mep8). The EVIL MANGA is still going strong.
And now, REAL Volume 8 (!REAL8). I can hear some of you saying "Finally, you fucking slowpoke.jpg" and I apologize. It won't happen again, hopefully. Big thank you to Molokidan for translating on short notice, even though he doesn't particularly like the series (Don't worry Molo, you'll be getting your payment once Zenquibo goes to Japan for your lapdances...). See you in October when volume 9 goes for sell!
Finally, Riki-Oh. Double dose. Chapters 58 & 59 (!Riki58 & !Riki59). I have to say. Riki-Oh 59 has to be the most ridiculous chapter of the whole series. One Piece on acid, mixed with over-the-top violence, mixed with the JOKER, mixed with corpses, mixed with AWESOME. Oh, and there's a magical knife somewhere in there.
Update: My Street 4 (trigger !MStreet04).
Always looking for new staff, please apply on the forums. Thanks. Have a good one.
Real Volume 7 pack on IRC
!REAL7 is the trigger.
I strongly suggest you re-download it, I put a lot of effort into improving it in the last week or so.
Real v8 chapters should be coming out shortly... Hopefully.
April fooled. I guess?
Funny thing is... One thing that was posted on that April Fools post is actually true. I'll let you guys murmur about it among yourselves.
But today, we have two un-popular seinen series for you all.
Holyland ch44 & Mephisto ch7.
!Holy44 & !Mep7 on IRC.
Always looking for new staff, especially Editors. You know, the more Editors (that meet our standards, obviously) we get, the faster we release stuff like... Blood+ A... Saru Lock... Riki-Oh... Future projects... Full Metal Panic Sigma... No experience is necessary, as long as you're willing to learn. Just letting you guys know. `-')
Enjoy, have a good one.
Enough is enough!
The last months have been quite hard on us.
Honestly, I don't think I can keep up with this anymore(trying to clean 4~5 projects simultaneously is tiring).
Therefore we need to make CHANGES. These are hard times, but if we work together on my new plan I BELIEVE we can CHANGE for the better.
Here is how I see this - we need to go back to our roots. Time where we had lots of popular projects and many many downloads. I talked this over with the rest of the staff and they agreed to cut down some projects.
Lets be real, who reads Seinen nowadays? 10, 20 people max. Saru Lock, Holyland, Kamen Teacher, Tough, Mephisto, Riki-Oh, Oton etc. crap crap crap
All those bullshit projects we have picked up along the road, have been nothin but pain in ass. Said that, hopefully this month we will finish volumes we have started on our current Seinen titles and drop them.
Don't panic. After getting rid of this non-popular trash we will focus on finishing our old dropped projects, starting: HSDK, Naruto, Get Backers and Shonan Junai Gumi.
Ofcourse we need some new blood to give us better download stats, this will include some popular Shounen titles: Claymore, Bleach & One Piece. I know some groups are scanlating them, but we can give better quality and more faster. ^^
From Shoujo we will pick up Lovely Complex and from Josei Nodame Cantabile.
If you have some good Shoujo or Boys Love(horny & lonely wives dig them) manga suggestions, feel free to recommend one, doesn't matter if someone's already working on it. These are hard times and only the fittest will survive.
Hopefully, if everything goes as planned, we should get more staff applying, higher download statistics & some "Thank you for your hard work" for a change.
