I figure it’s worth mentioning,

Hi again. This many releases in such a short period of time is… unusual, to say the least, for us. Our QCer (dh85) came back from vacation only to tell us he’s still busy with something useless like school or something, I don’t know. So I figured it was worth mentioning since a bunch of you ask every two comments or almost now, to the point I’m getting multiple emails about this. The status of Full Metal Panic Sigma v19 is that we’re working on it. There are still a…

Man, do the Habs suck tonight

Jeez, what an awful performance. Oh, hey. Today I’d first like to thank our two new staff members, kuroto and Chuuka. Both of them applied over the last two weeks and thanks to them, we’ll be able to release some series faster. Thank you both for applying. Now, if only I could get another reliable cleaner & translator… 😉 If you’re interested, email me or PM me on IRC. Master Keaton 29 (!Keaton29 !MK29) – Newest chap of Keaton featuring… A duel! Both of our new applicants worked on this…

New Years release, two weeks late. Kinda.

Hallo. So we were supposed to do a New Years release two weeks ago, but seeing as we’re the Italian is a slacker, we got shit done. Took him a whole week to QC a volume, that silly willy. (Love you Marco Polo <3) So for 2014, our goal in releases will be to get to 3,000 total chapters release, which will largely depend on the amount of staff we have. So… wink wink, apply if you think you can help out. Translators, Editors, A Proofreader. PM me on IRC…

Merry Christmas~

!!Edit!! I completely forgot! This batch of release included our 2,500th chapter released! That also happened to be our goal for the end of the year, 2,500 total chapters released. So hip hip houray! So it’s the annual “let’s do everything on the 24th & 25th of December after slacking off for the last two months” release, also known as the Christmas release. I’m kind of disappointed by this year’s release by usual standards, because it’s smaller and I had plans to release at least ten full volumes. Yeah, ten…

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…

What? ANOTHER new project?

So we have a new series called Raqiya by Boichi today and I already know what you’re thinking, “Another new project? Again? Really? Go fuck yourselves, gimme my [insert other neglected series here], you assholes.” Listen, there’s a little backstory here. I like Kotonoha a lot. I have a hard time naming a bad series they’ve done since they’ve started. They’re (or were, seeing as they’re inactive now) the cream of the crop when it comes to quality scanlations and series choices. So much so that, they started 4 series…

Mother Sarah v11 End

Hallo, I had written a nice post about the release, but I had a power failiure and everything was deleted. Way to go Hydro Quebec. As usual, we’re searching for staff to help increase the release speed. If you’ve been following the group for a couple of years now, you’ll know we have two big releases coming up. One for the anniversary release & one for Christmas (and the subsequent week). So to make those releases as big as they can be, we need more staff. We’re looking for Editors,…

Going to be a fun month or so~

Hi. I’m a bit short on time, but anyway 1- We’ll be busy for the next month or so despite a lot of the staff having real life commitments. We have our anniversary release in a month, so stayed tuned for that. I don’t think we’ll have much more to release until then. 2- Always looking for new staff. Editors, Translators & an experienced typesetter. PM me on IRC if you’re interested. 3- Status update: IAAH v13 goes for sale on the 30th of October, so we’ll be getting it…

Blame the Russian, blaaaaame the Russian

So apparently, the site had some hickups. Oh well. I say, blame the Russian. Only because, well, it’s fun. Really. We’re recruiting staff members to increase our release speed on some of our series. We have two big annual releases every year that are coming up, so we’ll need help with that. We’re specifically looking for translators, cleaners & redrawers. I could use one experience typesetter to help out as well. We have a lot of seinen stuff we’d like to do, but alas we need the staff to do…
