8 full years

So today, November 11th – and it’s still the 11th where I live as I’m typing this – is Illuminati-Manga’s eight anniversary. I’m kinda surprised we’ve last eight full years. But then again, there’s a boatload of good manga out there that hasn’t been found & scanlated (Looking at my Saruwatari Tetsuya pile alone makes me salivate…) so I suppose there might be a reason we’ve lasted so long.

Big thank you to all the current & former staff who’ve put in some time to get releases out. It’s been a lot of work, but we’ve been able put forth a lot of good products because of it.

(Also, looking for staff, PM me on IRC if interested, blah blah blah)

Alice in Hell 12 (!Alice12 !AIH12) – That range…

Hito Hitori Futari v06 (!Hito06 !Hitori06) – Oh shit, that cliffhanger.

Inherit The Stars 07-08 (!ITS07 !ITS08 !Stars07 !Stars08) – A big, big thank you to Elkin <3 for translating the series. This completes volume 1, and hopefully we’ll be working on volume 2 not too long from now.

Master Keaton 28 (!Keaton28 !MK28) – One of my favorite chapters, just because of what happens right in the middle of the chapter with the dog. I literally laughed out loud. Thanks again to the people at HappyScans! for helping out with the release.

Scientia (End) (!Scientia !Science) – While we did pick up Raqiya last time, we finished off one project, so we’re even now. πŸ™‚ A big thank you to Kalai for translating the volume and to Ashido for cleaning it.

I had planned to release two more volumes today, but we ran out of time. One of the volumes had missing redraws and the other volume was only partially translated. So hopefully we’ll be able to wrap those two up in the coming weeks and start working on the next big release… The one in late December…

See you.
