As usual, we're looking for new staff. Translators, Editors & Quality Checkers. The more staff we get, the faster we can put out more chapters.
Oniwakamaru The Visitor 03 (!Oniwa03 !OTW03) - Newest chapter of our demon-transforming protagonist. This time, with 150% more abuse towards bums. Big thank you to eito from Village Idiot Scans for doing the editing and to zindryr for translating.
We'll also be starting a new series by Saruwatari Tetsuya in the following days... Hopefully. Stay tuned!
We've been adding new stuff on the Illum bot, like:
-Hareluya II Boy (Someone requested it & I felt like being nice, so...)
-Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (You must read this if you haven't yet)
We have a lot of other series in mind that we'll be uploading in the next few weeks, so stay tuned... again.
Good night, I need a shower.
New series! (I should update the projects page)
Today we have a new series!
We have a new bot called Illum in the IRC room. On top of having all of our releases (Except a handful that I don't want to spread), we have a recommendation list at the bottom. Our staff has uploaded other series that we'd recommend others to read. We'll continuously upload more and more series for those interested. You can check the packlist by clicking here. We might eventually take requests on what to upload, but that's not for now. Today I uploaded Shin Angyo Onshi and Island, both by the same artist.
Hito Hitori Futari (!Hito01 !Hitori01) - A new series by Takahashi Tsutomu. It's another series about spirits, with a small twist this time! Big thanks to kewl0210 for translating the series for us and to dh85 for doing [almost] everything else.
Master Keaton Remaster 02 (!Keatonre02 !MKR02) - A new chapter from the new Master Keaton series. You don't need to have read the first series to understand this one. The series are both episodic. Since the 2012 Euro is underway, this chapter has a little football feel to it. Thanks again to /a/non for translating & HappyScans! for editing it.
The Forgotten (Part 2)
First, fuck yeah the New Joizy Devils lost.
Second- We have a second bot in our IRC channel that's a combination of our releases & a bunch of series that we'd recommend you to read if you haven't already. It's all staff recommendations. You can check out the pack list by clicking here.
Third- Looking for staff, increase release speed. Apply if you want to help.
Idiot Section Chief 11 (!Idiot11 !Baka11)
Master Keaton 09 (!Keaton09 !MK09)
My Life Second Example Sawa (!Sawa !Sawa2)
There's a certain theme to our releases today.
Inherit The Stars 03 (!ITS03 !Inher03) - Thanks again to methanol for translating ch3, impatiently waiting for ch4
Mephisto 27 (!Meph27 !Mep27) - I blame the Latvian.
Rookies 209 (!Rook209 !Rookies209) - The aftermath...
Sidonia no Kishi 17 (!Sido17 !SnK17) - Big thank you to our new translator, momimomi.
Just FYI, a few of the staff are going through their exams period, so we aren't going to be very active for the next 2 weeks or so.
It's an Odyssey!
I'd like to remind a few things...
We have a new bot in our IRC channel. It's called Illum and it hosts all of our releases & some other stuff. The staff at Illuminati-Manga has been uploading manga that they've enjoyed over the years and felt that you should probably check them out. You'll see a trend of groups; Mangascreener, Kotonoha, Hawks, Omanga... You could easily say that those are our favorite groups. So if ever you want a suggestion for something to read, go check the pack list here and go to the bottom. If you have any suggestions, feel free to mention it. I'm sure there's stuff we completely forgot about and that we could upload.
Second thing is, we're still actively looking for staff. Editors, Translators and Quality Checkers. If you're interested in helping to increase the pace of releases, please apply.
Now, the releases.
Odyssey ch01 (!OD01 !Odys01) - You know that packlist I just told you about? It contains two specific series that were fucking epic when I read them. They're called Sanctuary and Strain. They were both authored by Buronson and drawn by Ikegami Ryoichi, one of the most badass author-artist combination in manga history. Well, you know what? So is Odyssey. It's a 3 volume series (I bought the Wideban, 3-volumes-in-one versions) in the same neighborhood of Sanctuary & Strain. Just one disclaimer, the next chapter won't be out soon because the translator is really, really busy with real life stuff.
Oniwakamaru The Visitor 02 (!Oniwa02 !OTW02) - Second chapter of this demon series, where we go into a little character development. There's the obligatory fight stuck in there too, so don't worry!
Enjoy, have a good one.
Between the adult world and the world of kids, there, Holyland exists.
The lenient law and the reality of violence rules a seperate world.
In that world - He was there, Yuu Kamishiro, he was, without a mistake, there.
I hope all of you enjoy the ending.
Holyland v01, v17 & v18 (!Holy01 !Holy17 !Holy18 !HL01 !HL17 !HL18) - Well, this was a fun ride. We started working on re-doing volume 01 a few years ago because the scanlations weren't very good and we just got around to finishing it up this week.
A big, big, big thank you to Nitouryu for his work on the series over the last 3+ years. Without him, the series would have gone no where. A big thank you to Phaedris & kyuubi654 for their help redrawing these 3 volumes and to Molokidan for translating.
My Life First Example Chikada (!Chikada !Chika) - Another oneshot from the Itaitashii Love volume.
Oniwakamaru The Visitor ch01 (!Oniwa01 !OTW01) - A new series by Saruwatari Tetsuya, the mangaka for Bad Police & Koukou Tekken-den Tough, while drawing Riki-Oh. It's 4 volumes long and it's about demons and MONSTERS.
New Bot! We have a new bot in #illuminati-manga called Illum. It's basically a bot that will host both new & old releases while hosting manga that the staff like! So if you've ever wondered what some of us like, you can find it on there. We'll progressively add more stuff on it like some videos and maybe a couple of Apps. You can check out the packlist here.
It took me an hour to write this news post because, well, I'm fucking tired. I need some sleep.
We party like it's 1999! (in ze germany)
I guess we released something
Master Keaton Remastered ch1: http://www.mediafire.com/?wzfd6t64j2c3dnl
I'll upload it on the bot later.
Btw, we'll re-do the chap when the tankobon goes for sale. I kinda regret not QCing the chapter.
3 Projects Completed
So this isn't something I'll say very often, but...
We completed three projects today! Apologies for the delays, but it happens.
We're looking for Translators, Redrawers & Quality Checkers to increase the release speed.
I would really, really like to do more Saruwatari Tetsuya (Riki-Oh, Bad Police, Koukou Tekken-den Tough) series. I literally have a full series of his translated (every single volume translated from start to end) but I have no editors for it. I have the first volume of another series of his completely translated, with the 3 final volumes needing a second check. But, again, no editors. So if you're a fan of his like I am and want to see some of his badass stuff released, you know what to do.
And now, the releases.
Color of Rage. (!Colorof) - If you enjoyed this volume, purchase the English volume done by Dark Horse. You can download it from amazon.com here. Support the English publishing companies.
Full Metal Panic Sigma v15 (!Sigma15) - This was scheduled for late April, so please forgive me for releasing this on May 1st (or 2nd, depending where you live.) An important note about this volume! This is a very important volume to the story of Full Metal Panic because this is the A Very Dancing Merry Christmas arc, which takes place immediately after the events in volume 3 (The events from The Second Raid for a better idea). I have no idea why they skipped this story in the first place, but whatever. It's being done now. This is a quality arc as well. I strongly recommend all of you read the novel, because the manga skips a lot of stuff. Again, not too sure why. You can read it in English here, thanks to Boku-Tachi. I hope you enjoy the cliff hanger at the end of v15.
Hanashippanashi v02 (!Hanashi02) - This is our translator laika's baby. He's put a lot of time and a lot of effort into this manga. So much so that he wanted to write a little something about it:
To keep it short: this project meant a lot to me personally and I'm really happy to see it finished. I'm especially grateful to all the staff involved and also to everyone that supported me and helped this project along the way. Thank you very much.
So I hope you'll enjoy it. It's a superb collection of short stories. Big thank you to dh85 as well for his hard work on the series. Thanks to Kotonoha for doing volume 01 originally. We'll be doing more stuff by the author over time.
Wolf Guy v12 (!WG12) - Welp, I hope you enjoyed the ride. Big thank you to tradedaemon for translating all 12 volumes and to klo for doing a bulk of the redraws.
So again, we're looking for Translators, Redrawers and Quality Checkers. If you're interested in helping out, please apply on the forums or PM me on IRC.
Have a good one.
