Big thanks to Kuthrow for QCing these, even if it isn't exactly you favorite series :p
Triggers are !Man22 & !Man23 on IRC.
Btw, we're hoping to finish Manhole rather soon. Maybe not this week, but in a few weeks from now. I just need to get off my lazy ass and get to work on it...
My Street ch02
Along with Homunculus, we've released My Street chapter 2 today. With the good people at Rabbit-Reich, this release was possible. Make sure to visit and thank them!
We're still looking for Quality Checkers. Apply on the forums.
Trigger for the release on IRC is !MStreet02
We're releasing an old MangaScreeners & Hawks project (Two of my favorite groups ever) in Homunculus. Big thank you to everyone who worked on in it in any shape or form, release was decided on short-notice but we pulled it off pretty well if you ask me.
Trigger is !Homun9 on IRC.
Discuss the volume & the series in general here.
Thank you to everyone who's applied as a proofreader. I'm extremely glad that some people want to help out. I don't need anymore proofreaders at the time. I am, however, still looking for QCers. Still have 3 chapters stuck on QC with nobody active enough to QC it. So, apply on the forums and we'll give you a test.
Also, while we're at it, I'll advertise a little.
A few Editors in this group have started a little "side-project" with members from various other groups (NCIS, Chibisuke-Scans, Bakayarou, others) to create a tutorial room called #cleaners on irc.irchighway.net (Same server as our irc room). This is not a request channel with editors at your disposal. This is a room with video tutorials to improve yourself as an editor or if you just want to learn how to do it properly. If you're an experienced editor and you want to help out the cause, PM one of the ops. If he isn't there, leave him some kind of way to contact you. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks, have a good one.
Saru Lock 23
Saru 23 is out.
Big thank you to our two new Saru Lock staff members, Chas (new Typesetter) and dreaq_de_manu (new Editor) for helping out on the releases. If these two hadn't applied to help us out, we wouldn't of released these chapters yet. So, again, if you want to increase the release speed, help us out.
Triiger is !Saru23 on our IRC room.
Talk with us. We're lonely. We're bored. So Register on the forums and talk. :p
[Discuss Saru Lock]
Saru Lock 22
!Saru22 in the channel. Stick around and talk, we're bored.
Also, WE NEED PROOFREADERS AND QUALITY CHECKERS!!!!
I have multiple chapters stuck at these stages because we don't have a single proofreader or QCer that's active.
Not a single one. Seriously. I have to ask people from other groups to help us out.
I have a volume and a half of Saru Lock that needs to be proofread, 30 or so chapters of Riki-Oh, some Holyland, some misc. chapters here and there.
I have 5 chapters stuck in the QC process because, well, we don't have a QCer?
Want to help out? Eithetr apply on the forums or PM me (GGpX) on IRC.
If you don't really feel like helping out, then, well, enjoy the wait.
Oneshot by Takahashi Ichirou, the mangaka of Volleyball Tsukai Gouda Gou in WSJ.
This is a joint project with Whatever. Visit their room and thank them. #whatever @ irc.irchighway.net.
This oneshot was translated in January 2008, so it took us a year. Thankfully we're done, though.
Trigger is !Obake in the channel.
Next up...! I dunno what's next, stick around on IRC for our next release.
Still looking for staff. Apply on the forums or PM GGpX, Nitouryu, Zenquibo or antifon on IRC. By the way, just because we don't reply to the threads on the forums doesn't mean we ignore you. We send a PM or find a way to get in contact with you from there.
Happy New Years!
Gotta make a new news post, unfortunately...
So, yeah, you guys can read my horrific writing skills. Eat it, scrub!
Uh-- Anyway, we need more staff. It's (almost) 2009, so we need some new staff to help us out. We need... Well... Every position! Proofreaders, Typesetters, Editors, Typesetters, Translators, Quality Checkers and even Scanners (So I don't have to scan everything myself :p). If you're interested, PM either GGpX, antifon, Nitouryu or Zenquibo on #illuminati-manga.
Now, for the releases.
Blood+ Volume 5 (END)
After 2 and a half years, we have finally done Blood+. I'd like to give a big thank you to tokiyasama85 for translating the series all the way through. Also a big thank you to antifon & VyvyanWilde for doing a big part of the work on the last two volumes. I'd also like to thank everyone who did their part in the series. Hopefully Blood+ A won't take too much to complete :p
Triggers are !Blood05HQ and !Blood05LQ
Full Metal Panic: Sigma Volume 2
Don't expect volume 3 to come out as fast as volume 2 did. We'll be working progressively on the chapters, mostly because we have some other things that we have to work on before it.
Trigger is !Sigma02
Manhole Chapters 19v2-20-21
I don't know how, but there was a huge fuck up in Manhole 19 (Second page) and I can't explain it. It's all my mistake. I made a v2 of ch19, and included the fixed page in chapter 20. Anyway, enjoy chapter 20-21.
Mercenary Pierre Chapter 20
This concludes volume 3 of Mercenary Pierre. Only one more volume to go. We'd like to try to finish it soon,
My Street Chapter 01
Well, this is the project I said we'd be doing with RR after One Day ended. My Street is completely different from One Day in many senses. For starters, this is actually a story that continues for multiple volumes. The artstyle is also different; My Street has a "weird" look to it and is also alot less detailed. My Street is very good, and also very difficult to translate. I'd know, I translate it ._.
In any case, we promissed that we'd have 700 chapters released by 2009, and with these chapters we're at 707 chapters released. 2010 goal: 1,000!
Stay tuned `-')
...Oh, did I mention we needed some new staff? :p
Now that Christmas is over...
I thought I should give you guys a project update for the projects that we didn't release.
Apple: Oneshot that just came out in Weekly Shounen Jump, we'll be doing that early this week (Assuming all goes well)
Eden: The translator (methanol) is currently too busy with real life commitments to be translating and illiteracy (The guy doing everything else on Eden) id MIA. I miss you illiteracy :(
Gantz: We started on volume 22 once upon a time, whether we actually end up finishing it any time soon is up in the air. We will finish it, though.
Heureka: The translator (Kyrie Eleison) is busy with real life commitments. So until she comes back, no Heureka.
Holyland: Our translator bailed, so we're stuck. Any translator out there want to continue the project?
Kamen Teacher: I'm not too sure what's going on. xip in NCIS was supposed to upload a chapter to QC for the Christmas release, but he hasn't logged on since the 20th. So I don't really know what's going to happen right now.
Karakuridouji Ultimo: Now that Takei Hiroyuki finished redoing his ending for SK, it was finally announced that this would become a serialization in Jump SQ. I haven't talked with the friendly people at Whatever if we were going to continue with the project or not. But we have a weeks to talk it over.
Oshitone Tenzen: We have translations coming soon, so there should be a release in the near-future, assuming all goes well.
REAL: We haven't scanned volume 8 yet, so not much work has started on it yet.
Sengoku: Still looking for a t/l check on the scripts.
Tista: We'll be redoing volume 1 with tankobons and doing volume 2 that way too. Expect volume releases.
Various Mandala oneshots: We have some translations, but the level of editing is much too difficult for the Editors we have now... So, illiteracy, if you're reading this... Did I mention I miss you? :(
With a few projects nearing the end, and which might end soon, by the way, we'll still have our hands busy. For example, with Oishii-Manga, when we're done Elfen Lied, we already have a new manga that we'll be working on together. Same goes for Izumo no Ryu. We're not going to pick something up for every project we finish, though.
And finally... We're looking for Saru Lock Editors. PM me on IRC if you want to help out.
Thanks, have a good one.
