I almost OD’ed on Poutine

Plan for tonight was simple, really was. Then it all turned to shit in minutes. Buddy of mine visited LA and I told him to pick me up some books, half-jokingly, before he came back. He said as long as I paid him back. So I got him to buy me volumes 5-13 of the new Tough series. Cost was about $95 USD, which was about 2/3 of what I’d pay if I bought the books directly from Japan. So we go eat, I order a poutine and… it’s enormous.…

Introducing, Yankee Go To Juku

Morning. It might be the first day of summer, but it sure doesn’t feel like summer’s arrived here yet. I’m getting impatient. Yankee Go To Juku (!Juku01) – So this is the first of the two new projects I mentioned a few days ago when we released Alice. We’re teaming up with Nuwang to work on this series. Go visit his site and thank him. A little backstory on this series. One of our translators, laika, had asked me to buy a bunch of books in hopes of scanlating them…

Alice in Hell – End

Alice in Hell 43 – (!AIH43) Nearly seven years after we released the first chapter, we’ve finally completed Alice in Hell. A big thank you to momimomi for translating the first half, ckrit for translating the second half, dh85 for cleaning & QCing. An even bigger thank you to Nitouryu for continuing the cleaning and getting my ass in gear to finish the series.

I saw a guy reading Holyland on the subway yesterday

I was taking the subway to my yoga class yesterday and the next to me was on his phone, probably on MangaDex. What was he reading? He was reading Holyland. In the infantile chance that the dude reads this, two things. 1- Good choice, 2- Get a fucking haircut, seriously. Blue Hole 2 (!BlueHole02) – In this chapters, we shall be introduced to some new dinos. This might be a re-occurring theme. Thanks as usual to Hokuto no Gun & HappyScans for their help on the chapter.

I finished my yoga marathon

I do hot yoga from time to time and in May, the studio I frequently visit had a “Challenge Month” for those who had certain passes. So, since it was a challenge, I decided, I’ll go every single day. With the exception of one Saturday where I felt like I was on death’s door for 24 straight hours, I went every day for a total of 33 classes in 30 days. Last night I did two classes and I can reaaaaally feel it in my legs. But that being said,…

Someone attempted to catfish me

Quick story- I got a girl (that’s what her profile picture says) asking me for “sexy selfies” while sending me some from her. Welp… Dog Soldier 17 (!Dog17) – A big thank you to those from Hokuto no Gun & HappyScans! for their help. If all goes well, we should have another chapter in a week, which will wrap up the volume. A huge shoutout to illiteracy, an OG in the scanlation game, for his help on the redraws. The redraws are what causes all of the delays and there’s…

A quick update

I updated the Projects page to be a little more up to date of sorts: Saru Lock, REAL, I Am A Hero are all Dropped. Saru Lock was mentioned a few days ago, but the redraws are a motherfucker. If they weren’t, we would have finished that series in the span of 2-3 years. REAL MangaStream decided to do the weekly chaps (albeit with less than desirable typesetting) and it’s licensed, so yeah. I Am A Hero, no translator & it’s licensed. Manyuuki, Odyssey, Mephisto are all moved to Stalled.…

I feel like death

I had a lot of things planned on Saturday, but when you’re sick and it feels like you’re knocking on death’s door, well, those plans kinda fall by the wayside. I still feel terrible, but here goes… Dog Soldier 16 (!Dog16) – From yesterday, but whatever. As usual, a big thank you to Hokuto no Gun & HappyScans! for their help on this. The chapters are in this volume are all about 80 pages, which is fun. Saru Lock 39-40 (!Saru39 !Saru40) – Prior to last week, the last time…
