Enough is enough!
The last months have been quite hard on us.
Honestly, I don't think I can keep up with this anymore(trying to clean 4~5 projects simultaneously is tiring).
Therefore we need to make CHANGES. These are hard times, but if we work together on my new plan I BELIEVE we can CHANGE for the better.
Here is how I see this - we need to go back to our roots. Time where we had lots of popular projects and many many downloads. I talked this over with the rest of the staff and they agreed to cut down some projects.
Lets be real, who reads Seinen nowadays? 10, 20 people max. Saru Lock, Holyland, Kamen Teacher, Tough, Mephisto, Riki-Oh, Oton etc. crap crap crap
All those bullshit projects we have picked up along the road, have been nothin but pain in ass. Said that, hopefully this month we will finish volumes we have started on our current Seinen titles and drop them.
Don't panic. After getting rid of this non-popular trash we will focus on finishing our old dropped projects, starting: HSDK, Naruto, Get Backers and Shonan Junai Gumi.
Ofcourse we need some new blood to give us better download stats, this will include some popular Shounen titles: Claymore, Bleach & One Piece. I know some groups are scanlating them, but we can give better quality and more faster. ^^
From Shoujo we will pick up Lovely Complex and from Josei Nodame Cantabile.
If you have some good Shoujo or Boys Love(horny & lonely wives dig them) manga suggestions, feel free to recommend one, doesn't matter if someone's already working on it. These are hard times and only the fittest will survive.
Hopefully, if everything goes as planned, we should get more staff applying, higher download statistics & some "Thank you for your hard work" for a change.
What do Jack Nicholson, Heath Ledger and Riki-Oh chapter 57 all have in common?
Read it to find out! On IRC, baby! Riki-Oh 55-57 are released!
!Riki55 !Riki56 !Riki57
This completes volume 9 of Riki-Oh. This makes me sad just because it means there's only 3 more volumes of Riki-Oh goodness :(
We also released Mephisto 5-6 in the last week (!Mep5 !Mep6), so come download those too.
Long story short, we need more staff, apply, blah blah blah.
!Holy43 is the trigger.
Also made volume packs of Holyland v4 (!Holy4) and Mercenary Pierre v3 (!MP3) on the bot.
It's 6am, and I don't know what to write.
So we released stuff tonight. It's 6.40AM, I'm tired, and I don't know what to write in this news post. Eh, let's try something...
Holyland 41-42 are out! Delicious fighting! ...Delicious? That sounds... off. Eh, who cares, it's fighting. !Holy41 & !Holy42
/msg Foojin xdcc send #160 For Holyland 41
/msg Foojin xdcc send #161 For Holyland 42
Mephisto 4 is out. More evil! More blood! More black magik! More this, more that, more !Mep4 and shit! Hopefully Nitouryu works hard and gets you some more out soon.
And finally, Mercenary Pierre volume 4 to conclude the series. Wow, two finished series in two weeks!? This seems so... Unusually weird! Us, of all groups, actually finishing projects instead of picking them up! A big, big thank you to tradedaemon, who did the vast majority of the work on this series. Big thanks to Digital_Eon, Dead^Meat, Zenquibo and Nobody for their help on the series. We'll be doing another joint project with Izumo no Ryuu in the future (Already have the series picked out.), but because of staff problems recently, it'll have to wait until a) We get more staff (Hint hint, apply) or b) We finish more projects (But some of those projects already have other manga lined up afterwards, like Elfen Lied, Blood+ A, Riki-Oh...). Plus, I can't find the book at a good price in Japan yet, (I don't like the online raws) so the project will have to wait.
Trigger for Mercenary Pierre Volume 4 is !MP4 If you want previous volumes of the series, type !MP1 !MP2 (For Volumes 1-2). Volume 3 isn't in made into a full volume (I'll get to that after I get up...), so the triggers are !MP14 to !MP20 .
/msg Foojin xdcc send #162 For Mercenary Pierre Volume 4
Enjoy, have a good one.
Manhole - End
Welp, here's the end of Manhole. Chapters 26 to 29(Epilogue) are released on IRC. Triggers are !Man26 to !Man29 on irc. Also, volume 2 volume has been put up. !Man2 to download it. A volume 3 repack will be available sometime next week.
Big thank you to everyone who's worked on the series over the years. Special thanks to methanol for starting to translations of the series (and then leaving me to do latter half of it ;p).
I wanted to finish this series back in Febuary, but we had QCer problems (Still do, I miss you, Eon-chan!) and Editors problems (Come back, sleepyfon & manu!).
Anyway, I'm out. Bye!
More of our cutest manga - Mephisto
Go to our irc channel for Mephisto ch2 & ch3 (triggers !Mep2 & !Mep3).
Also, Mephisto isn't EVIL, so stop giving bad rep to my mango GGpX! Just because there is going on some rape, underage killing, people sacrificing & devil summoning, doesn't necessarily mean it's evil... right? RIGHT?!
News & Releases
First, the news.
Our best editor, antifon, is taking time off scanlations (maybe even quitting altogether) to focus on school. That means are already slowly moving projects will be moving even slower.
So, more than ever, we need Editors & staff. If you've applied and haven't received a reply yet, my apologies, I've just been busy this week.
Small announcement. We will not being doing Ultimo past the prequel chapter. We've done the prequel/oneshot chapter with Whatever. Problem is, almost none of the staff are really interested in continuing the project while all of the editors who applied to do the project have been duds.
Other news; Manhole is almost done, just waiting for Eon to QC them. Same goes for Holyland 41-42. Blood+ A is still being cleaned. Mephisto 2 is in QC, ch3 is going to be typeset soon. No progress on FMP Sigma from last time I wrote.
A few days ago, we released Mephisto chapter 01. I nicknamed it "The EVIL MANGA" because it's very, very evil. The next few chapters have a few very disturbing parts, which is awesome. Blood! Rape! Gore! Torture! Hyehehehe!!! (Yes, I am demented.)
Trigger is !Mep1
We've released Saru Lock 27 today. Chapter 28 isn't anywhere close to being done, and it'll be a little while before we see it out. The amount of difficult redraws in this chapter is baffling. Something like 15 of the 18 pages have redraws, half of which are pretty difficult. So yeah.
Trigger is !Saru27
"You spilled my shit, asshole!"
I was planning on releasing more today, but the staff is just too busy. So don't expect many releases from us in the next few weeks (unless we get more staff)
!Riki54 in the channel.
Next week, hopefully some Holyland, Saru Lock & FMP. We'll see.
Also, Bechstien fixed the project page, and it looks much better now! Thank you very much, Bechstien!
