Full Metal Panic Sigma v18
I'd just like to mention,
I don't have an ETA because I don't know how much time it'll take me to typeset it, then I don't know how much time the QC will take. It'll be out before the end of July, 99% guaranteed.
is what I said.
As I'm writing this, it's 22:45 PM on July 31st in Montréal. I understand that in some other places further our east that it's August 1st already, and frankly I don't care `-') Because if I was living in some hillbilly town in Eastern Europe like Riga (Hi Nitouryu ) then it would have been released earlier because I would have had a full evening to wrap the volume up.
But on a more serious note :)
We're continuously looking for more staff to increase the release frequency of our series. We're looking for one experienced and active typesetter that can typeset either Shamo, Scientia, or some unreleased one volume mangas. We're always looking for more redrawers for series like Suicide Island because frankly, there's a shitload of redraws in that damn series.
If you're interested, please PM me on IRC.
And now, the release.
Full Metal Panic Sigma 18 (!Sigma18 !FMPS18) - Welp, there's one more volume to go. It goes for sale on September 22nd. An ETA for that? Yeah, that's a little early. But for the time being, enjoy this volume because shit is going down, son!
Have a good one.
Happy fourtha July for you Yanks
Happy fourth of July, where you can celebrate by drinking beer, BBQing hotdogs all day and watching loud fireworks at night.
Which, by the way, is a much better celebration of a national Holiday than Canada day here in Quebec. Those of you from here know exactly what I mean. Maybe the angry xenophone from a few posts ago will show up and describe our "national" pass time for July 1st.
Scientia 02 (!Scientia02 !SCT02) - Second chap of the volume, this one is a special for the ladies. Especially the ladies who want a men who really, really likes you.
So seeing as how I offended the easily offended,
I'm going to do absolutely nothing about it! Now that my least favorite day of the year has come & gone, I'm feeling better because...
This upcoming Sunday is my favorite day of the year. It's the NHL Entry Draft! I'm always extra excited for the draft.
So as usual, we're looking for more staff. Editors, Translators, Quality Checkers and experienced Typesetters. The more staff we get, the faster we can release stuff. If you're interested, contact me on IRC.
Alice in Hell 08 (!AIH08 !Alice08) - First chapter of volume 02, and things are going to start developping soon~
Good night, I need some sleep.
My dreaded least favorite day of the year...
Today, June 24th, is La Saint-Jean-Baptiste. It's Quebec's "national" (Go figure, since Quebec isn't a country) holiday, where everyone should be "proud" to be québécois and celebrate, lest we not speak about the rampant xenophobia and pure arrogance to anything not deemed Québécois on this specific day.
Well, to make this day a tiny bit better, some Rookies. How 'bout it?
Rookies v23 (!Rookies23 !Rook23) - This is a volume pack for v23, there's 5 new chapters. A very big thank you to rhy for doing the redraws at the end of the volume, it was much appreciated. If you're still up for some more redraws in volume 24, we could definitely use your help. :)
As usual, recruiting staff, PM me on IRC, etc. I'm kind of nauseated because of this day, so I don't really wanna spend much time writing here.
Three day weekend, yay.
As usual, we're looking for more staff to increase our release speed. Today's release is thanks to new applicants who took the time to help us, so we're extremely grateful for their help.
Translators, redrawers, quality checkers, please apply~ Thanks <3
Scientia 01 (!Scientia01 !SCT01) - Scientia is a one volume series by Toda Seiji, his first series to get scanlated. It's a series of inter-connected short stories about life mixed with science and how it impacts every day society. It's a light, enjoyable read.
I'm making a post simply to encourage some of you to support two interesting Kick Starter campaigns.
The first one is The Crater - A collection of oneshots by Osamu Tezuka. One of the people who's worked on that volume is someone I know, so it would be fun if you could support him and his work to get some Osamu Tezuka out to the world. Also, it's a limited print run of 2,000 issues. You get 'em while you can, because they're not going to last very long.
The second one is Carbon Grey by Hoang Nguyen. They're $7k short of attaining their goal, so if you're willing to help out, I'm sure the author would greatly appreciate it. It's ending in three days, so get to it, yo.
Here's a synpsis of the story:
"Set against the backdrop of a great war Carbon Grey follows twin sisters Mathilde and Giselle Grey, members of a noble family dedicated to protecting the Kaiser of Mitteleuropa, as they struggle to reconcile duty with their own beliefs and ambitions. When the Kaiser is killed a vast conspiracy is uncovered, centered around a prophecy made long ago by Gottfaust, father to the Greys and hero of Mitteleuropa, that the 13th sister – the Carbon Grey – will one day spark a revolution."
So please consider it. You've been getting free stuff from us for almost 8 years, try to find the time to support a legal way to get comics & manga published in an English format. And if it works out, then odds are there will be more English licensed manga available in the following years.
And now, for your not-so-legal manga needs.
Hito Hitori Futari v05 (!Hito05 !Hitori05) - We ended up doing v5 in one go because, uh... Well, I guess we were just waiting for the redraws (Thanks Lukis) to come back and I ended up typesetting the whole volume by the time the redraws were done, and voila. This was a pretty good volume and v06's set up pretty nicely. Thanks again to kewl0210 for providing the translation.
Thanks for reading.
Alice in Hell 07
Here's my usual rant about the boring stuff:
We're searching for more staff to help us increase the release speed. We're in need of redrawers, an experience typesetter and a QCer. Leave me a PM if you're interested.
Alice in Hell 07 (!Alice07 !AIH07) - This chapter (finally) concludes volume 01. Thanks again to momimomi for translating the chapters. ch08 when??? dunnoe.
Mother Sarah v10
Mother Sarah v10 (!Sarah10 !MotherS10) - This is the conclusion of volume 10. When v11 will be done, who knows. I need an editor (or Lordof to show up again) to do the cleaning because the volume is translated.
The series is a post-Apocalyptic story about a mother named Sarah venturing across the world to find her three lost children. Accompanied by a travelling salesman, Tsue, Sarah encounters different challenges in her quest to find her children. Mother Sarah is a series authored by Otomo Katsuhiro, the famous creator of Akira. While the art looks a lot like his style, it was drawn by Nagayasu Takumi. I'll be honest when I tell you I don't know a whole 'lot about the artist.
This is the first release for this series in close to seven full years. Look at it this way: The last time there was a release for this series, our group was barely getting by and not even a full year old.
Anyway, if you want to download the previous volumes, the triggers are the same as above, but change the "10" to whatever volume you want. Example, !Sarah01 or !MotherS02.
Big thank you to hahhah42 for translating and Tew for finding the online raws. This is actually the first tankobon release we're doing that hasn't been bought & scanned by Nitouryu or me since our last Sengoku release. It's been a while.
Yes, we buy & scan the vast majority of the manga we scanlated. If I had a digital camera, I'd take a few pictures of my piles of debinded manga that I've kept over the years since I scanned Elfen Lied v09 in Febuary 2007.
In any case, we got ourselves a proofreader in Cazdli, thank you for applying & helping us out. Now, if only we could get some redrawers.
See you later.
