I’d like to start it off with,
PATS LOSE, PATS LOSE, THE CHEATING PATS LOOOOOOSE!
Who did they play? The Giants? Fucked if I care, the Pats lost.
I uploaded all of the previous volumes of Rookies for those who haven’t read this awesome series yet. The triggers are !Rook01 all the way to !Rook21 along with !Rook206 and !Rook207 for chaps 206-207 from v22.
Now, the releases. A big, big, biiiiig thank you to dh85/xyz for all the work he did on these chapters. He is now going to take a deserved scanlation vacation. (We could use some editors & QCers to replace him, btw, hint hint.)
À La Carte ch04 (End) (!ALC4 !ALC04) – The end of À La Carte. Whole volume download trigger is !ALaCarte – This oneshot is called X-Connect 2001. It’s a continuation of two oneshots in the author’s previous oneshot collection volume, Break Free. I’ve scanned that volume, but I have no intention of looking for staff for it. If some of you want to see it done, come talk with me either on IRC or via email.
Bad Police 01 (!BP01 !Bad01) – Okay, so I was planning on doing Damned by Saruwatari, by an unforeseen change of events. Katsudon offered to translate Bad Police for us, while the other translator will work on Damned probably in late Febuary. Anyway, this is a fun series and if you like Saruwatari Tetsuya like I do, you should give it a go.
Crueler Than Dead v01 (!CTD01 !Crueler01) – A non-h doujin about zombies. It’s really, really fun. Try it out.
Full Metal Panic Sigma v14 (!Sigma14 !FMPS14) – And the fillers continues. The good news? Next volume starts the Dancing Merry Christmas arc.
Holyland v16 (!Holy16 or type “/MSG stuffbot XDCC SEND 43” (without quotes)) – Shit is going DOWN, son. Two more to go.  Yeah, we fucked up. Replace page 21 with this version: http://www.illuminati-manga.com/illuminati-manga/Holyland_v16p021.png
Homunculus v14-15 (End) (!Homun14 !Homun15 !Hom14 !Hom15) – Finally, you must think. Yeah, finally. It took us way too long to finish these last two volumes. But rejoice, 600 fucking pages! I had four or five people read the two volumes, and in unison they were all in awe as they were reading these volumes. You HAVE to read this series. You just have to.
Inherit The Stars ch01-02 (!ITS01 !ITS02 !Stars01 !Stars02) – A manga interpretation of James P. Hogan’s Giants series drawn by Hoshino Yukinobu. A real nice sci-fi series.

Nit: hells, let’s read it while waiting for Prometheus. We need to look for mankind’s beginning… + ancient alien ship, moon bases, this manga has it all.
Itaitashii Love – Kyoko (!Kyoko !KyokoAlt) – Another new oneshot from the Itaitashii Love collection.
Shamo v26 (!Shamo26 !Sham26) – A quick FYI. There are two chaps from the magazines that were merged into one in the volume. The volume goes all the way to chapter 62 and only catches up to where we’ve scanlated. I’ll say it again, we’re looking for raws of ch64+. If we do not get raws, we will simply wait for the tankobon of volume 27 to go for sale and just do those.
Shark Skin Man And Peach Hip Girl (!Shark !PeachHip) – A fast-paced action series by the Dragonhead mangaka. This series was so good it was turned into a movie. Check that shit out, son.
By the way, we didn’t release everything we wanted. We had planned to release 47 chapters worth of stuff, we only managed to get 33 out. So we’ll have a mini-big release in a week or so, hopefully.
If you have questions, comments, anything, post ’em.
