Long time coming
So this took a lot longer than it was supposed to.
Wolf Guy v11 (!WG11) - Action filled with a bitch of a cliffhanger. One more volume to go!
Sorry for taking so long to do the volume. We had the cleans done for three whole months now, but the translator (tradedaemon) had real life shit that was more important than scanlation work. Now that he has some free time, we finished the volume up. Yaaaaay.
Volume 12, the final volume, goes for sale in two weeks. We'll be buying that along with a bunch of other volumes.
I guarantee you that it won't take nearly as much time to do v12 as it did v11.
Btw, we're recruiting new members into the team to increase release speeds.
We're looking for:
-Jp -> Eng Translators (Not accepting translations from any other languages except maybe French)
If you're interested, contact me either via email, PMing me on IRC or posting on the forums.
We're doing a recruitment drive again.
If you want to help us release faster, apply. We're looking for specifically:
-Jp -> Eng translators
-> Quality Checkers
If you're interested on working on some of the manga we're doing, apply by either emailing me, PMing me on IRC or posting on the forums. And if you stick around for a bit, you can start a series of your own.
Holiday (!Holiday) - I could use a Holiday right now...
The Truth Behind Things I & II (!TruthI & !TruthII) - I never, ever tell the truth.
Those three oneshots are from the Itaitashii Love volume. I'd have to ask eito how many chaps are left, but I don't think there's a ton.
I Am A Hero v5 & v6 (!IAAH05 & !IAAH06) - APOCALYPTA. And stuff. And 2chan!
"The History channel's the best, man... There's nothing better than watching the History Channel when they bring someone on with the title 'Sasquatch Expert' " - Joe Rogan
Bad Police ch03 (!BP03) - The before-to-last regular chapter. There's also two ~50 or so page oneshots after the fourth chapter.
Sidonia no Kishi v02 (!Sido2) - Okay, we've finally finished replacing those shitty magazines scans we did with real tankbon scans. We have chapter 16 from the translator, but she's gone shopping for a boyfriend and subsequently ignoring us. She'll be back sometime in April.
Suicide Island (!SI38) - I don't really have anything to add, to be perfectly honest. .-.
By the way.
Want to see have releases faster?
We need QCers, Redrawers & Jp -> Eng Translators.
I have 3 volumes in QC right now, but my two QCers (dh85 & Kuthrow) too busy having lives, those selfish jerks.
I have a few volumes of stuff that's cleaned, but no translators for it. And similarly, I have a few volumes of stuff translated with no redrawers to do the redraws.
Interested in helping out?
Email me, PM me on IRC or post on the forums.
Btw, once the QCers come back, we'll have a release of something that's long overdue.
Bad Police 02 (!BP02) - This chapter concludes the first small arc of Bad Police. Quite the lengthy arc... Anyway! As requested by Kuthrow:
I'm sure I found a way to fuck it up. Russian, come fix up my blunder.
REAL v11 (!REAL11) - Yeah, as many of you mentioned in the previous post's comment section, this was meant to be released last weekend. As usual, if you like this manga, please, please. please, support the author and purchase the volumes. I've bought volumes 1-10 in English, along with volumes 7-11 in Japanese. Buy 'em from amazon.com. Viz does a fantastic job on REAL.
In any case, see you in roughly a year from now for volume 12.
Mephisto 24-25 (!Meph24 !Meph25) - A late release because Nitouryu decided to log on. Stinky Latvijan! `-') Enjoy ~
There was still some stuff I wanted to release today, but a certain Latvijan (Nitouryu) is busy clubbing (people--- What, you thought Soviet Latvija actually has real clubs!? Get the fuck outta here.) instead of scanlating shit. Selfish prick. So we'll release the final part of the stuff eventually.
Anyway, Kuthrow also adds,
[18:33:59] <@Kuthrow> I noticed that you missed "gorilla warfare" in one of your qcs
[18:34:02] <@Kuthrow> nice one :P
[18:37:41] <@Kuthrow> every time I hear gorilla warfare I think of this pic: http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2009/01/30/article-1132389-033E42C1000005DC-814_468x405.jpg
[18:37:51] <@Kuthrow> because there was a meme about it a few years back.
I'd like to start it off with,
PATS LOSE, PATS LOSE, THE CHEATING PATS LOOOOOOSE!
Who did they play? The Giants? Fucked if I care, the Pats lost.
I uploaded all of the previous volumes of Rookies for those who haven't read this awesome series yet. The triggers are !Rook01 all the way to !Rook21 along with !Rook206 and !Rook207 for chaps 206-207 from v22.
Now, the releases. A big, big, biiiiig thank you to dh85/xyz for all the work he did on these chapters. He is now going to take a deserved scanlation vacation. (We could use some editors & QCers to replace him, btw, hint hint.)
À La Carte ch04 (End) (!ALC4 !ALC04) - The end of À La Carte. Whole volume download trigger is !ALaCarte - This oneshot is called X-Connect 2001. It's a continuation of two oneshots in the author's previous oneshot collection volume, Break Free. I've scanned that volume, but I have no intention of looking for staff for it. If some of you want to see it done, come talk with me either on IRC or via email.
Bad Police 01 (!BP01 !Bad01) - Okay, so I was planning on doing Damned by Saruwatari, by an unforeseen change of events. Katsudon offered to translate Bad Police for us, while the other translator will work on Damned probably in late Febuary. Anyway, this is a fun series and if you like Saruwatari Tetsuya like I do, you should give it a go.
Crueler Than Dead v01 (!CTD01 !Crueler01) - A non-h doujin about zombies. It's really, really fun. Try it out.
Full Metal Panic Sigma v14 (!Sigma14 !FMPS14) - And the fillers continues. The good news? Next volume starts the Dancing Merry Christmas arc.
Holyland v16 (!Holy16 or type "/MSG stuffbot XDCC SEND 43" (without quotes)) - Shit is going DOWN, son. Two more to go.  Yeah, we fucked up. Replace page 21 with this version: http://www.illuminati-manga.com/illuminati-manga/Holyland_v16p021.png
Homunculus v14-15 (End) (!Homun14 !Homun15 !Hom14 !Hom15) - Finally, you must think. Yeah, finally. It took us way too long to finish these last two volumes. But rejoice, 600 fucking pages! I had four or five people read the two volumes, and in unison they were all in awe as they were reading these volumes. You HAVE to read this series. You just have to.
Inherit The Stars ch01-02 (!ITS01 !ITS02 !Stars01 !Stars02) - A manga interpretation of James P. Hogan's Giants series drawn by Hoshino Yukinobu. A real nice sci-fi series.
Also, if you want to read the Inherit The Stars novel by James P. Hogan, go here: http://www.baenebooks.com/p-584-inherit-the-stars.aspx
Nit: hells, let's read it while waiting for Prometheus. We need to look for mankind's beginning... + ancient alien ship, moon bases, this manga has it all.
Itaitashii Love - Kyoko (!Kyoko !KyokoAlt) - Another new oneshot from the Itaitashii Love collection.
Shamo v26 (!Shamo26 !Sham26) - A quick FYI. There are two chaps from the magazines that were merged into one in the volume. The volume goes all the way to chapter 62 and only catches up to where we've scanlated. I'll say it again, we're looking for raws of ch64+. If we do not get raws, we will simply wait for the tankobon of volume 27 to go for sale and just do those.
Shark Skin Man And Peach Hip Girl (!Shark !PeachHip) - A fast-paced action series by the Dragonhead mangaka. This series was so good it was turned into a movie. Check that shit out, son.
By the way, we didn't release everything we wanted. We had planned to release 47 chapters worth of stuff, we only managed to get 33 out. So we'll have a mini-big release in a week or so, hopefully.
If you have questions, comments, anything, post 'em.
I have a question for you Brits.
I'm from North America and I'm planning a trip to the London in the next few months.
Do you need a special extension to plug in the wall for stuff like a laptop?
I ask because I don't want any bad surprises when I get there.
Rookies 207 (!Rook207) - Newest chapter of Rookies. As usual, thanks to Deadbeat-Scans for their help on this chapter.
I recommend you all come back sometime tomorrow night at roughly this time.
I need suggestions,
I want to do another Tetsuya Saruwatari series because he's really one of (if not the) favorite mangaka's.
For those of you who don't know, Tetsuya Saruwatari is the mangaka that currently works on the Tough series and it's prequel, Koukou Tekken-den Tough that we are currently scanlating. He also has a set of side stories to these two manga's, Oton. We scanlate that as well.
Prior to doing the Tough mangas, Saruwatari was known as the mangaka who created many over-the-top crazy action series. One of his most notable works, a series he was only the artist for, is Riki-Oh. We scanlated that once upon a time.
The point I'm getting at is, I miss doing Saruwatari's old-school, ultra violent stuff. I miss doing his ridiculous mangas with people literally just blowing up and near-invincible protagonists. So I want to do a new series of his and there's just too many to choose.
These are the series I have raws for and would be more than willing to do, so I'm going to list them and I want you to tell me which one I should do:
Bad Police - A series about an ex-biker turned cop who's basically a cocky prick that fights evil in his own way. It's a one volume series, which is good for me because there aren't long-term commitments attached with it. (I haven't scanned the volume yet)
Damned - Saruwatari's series that resembles Riki-Oh the most. You could even call it Riki-Oh in a parallel universe. This is the front-runner because I loved Riki-Oh so much and it's only three volumes. (I've scanned volumes 1-2, just procrastinating for v3)
Dog Soldier - Simplest way of describing it is... Japanese Rambo. The protagonist is called John K. Hiba and does jobs for secret agencies like the CIA where he has to kill dictators & blow shit up. This is the series that got Saruwatari his recognition as an ultra-violent mangaka. (I own v1-3 & haven't scanned any of the volumes yet)
SOUL - It's a street fighting manga where the protagonist offers his opponents a coat full of money if they defeat him. At least, that's what it looks like seeing as I don't speak Japanese. (I own all four volumes, but haven't scanned it yet)
The Hard - If you've read Riki-Oh, then you've probably read the NY Dust short story at the end of volume 12. This is the prototype that eventually led to the creation of The Hard. If you haven't read it, go read it now, we have it on the Online Reader. The Hard is the story of a bounty hunter named Kenji Hado (Nicknamed The Hard) who hunts down bounties to pay his divorce bills. Big guns, huge explosions and lots of Jack Daniels to pass around. Doesn't get much more manly than that, does it? I've scanned volumes 1-4 and own the 13 other volumes.
So let me know what you think.
Have a good one.
Suicide Island 37
Suicide Island 37 (!SI37) - New chap, shit goes down.
Next release in like 2-3 weeks. We're all busy.
