Releases, April 24th 2010 and some announcements


First, the announcements;

Sekai no Owari to Yoakemae is dropped. Kotonoha picked it up virtually at the same time we did and they did a great job with it.

Eden is dropped. Long time coming. illiteracy wanted to finish volume 13 a while back but it’s dead pretty much.

Oshitone Tenzen is dropped. All of the people working on the series has quit or retired and the remaining staff doesn’t care much for the project.

Koukou Tekken-den Tough is stalled. I just don’t have enough time to translate, scan and typeset/qc it. When I do, I’ll restart working on it.

Mephisto is stalled. The translator is busy with real life stuff – school, job, online novel, girlfriend and occasionally translating – and other projects of his. So when he has the time, we’ll continue.

My Street is stalled. There just hasn’t been any work or effort towards working on the series in a while.

Sengoku is stalled. We have a lot of scripts, but nobody to work on it. Until we have an editor for the series, it’ll remain stalled.

If you have questions about the projects, ask in the comment section.

Speaking of which, we’re looking for another typesetter for Shonan Jun’ai Gumi. We’ve currently translated up to chapter 92 in volume 11 and I’ll be translating quite a bit these days because of my bandwidth limit. We also have a few a chapters already cleaned out. If anybody’s willing to help us out, we’ll be able to finish the current arc rather speedily then start the best arc in the whole series, the Midnight Angels arc. Apply on the forums or PM me on IRC.

Now, the releases.

Holyland 74-75 (!Holy74 !Holy75)

    Wow, a Holyland release after so much time! (And great quality as always!) I really enjoyed those two chapters. Thank you guys! I know there are (were?) translator issues, but please keep it up. It's definitely an under-hyped manga, combining shounen elements with a seinen approach, and it really deserves to be scanlated by you 🙂

    I was reduced to buying the Viz release of Tough… it is abridged :angry:, missing a lot of the awesome martial arts theory. Disgusted. Hope it is released again soon.
