A birthday worth celebrating, I guess?


Another year, another new birthday. No grey hair yet, but give me another decade and I should be seeing some. Maybe.

So today I turned 32 and I decided like two months ago to organize a release on my birthday. I dunno what the reasoning behind it is, to be honest. Why aren’t I the one getting gifts? I guess any reason is good enough, to be honest.

First of all, a big thank you to korvas, Panduh_ and Mon for helping out with all the redraws. They’re a pain in the ass, especially with some of these. Christ. A big thank you to Nitouryu & tim for their work on pretty much everything, you’re the best. Thanks to Molokidan, Koala, Bird-chan for translating three chaps (while I did 3 full volumes, #humblebrag).

Alright, so…

Kimi 20 (!Kimi20) – I think the retards on MD are going to be loving this chapter. The magnet of low-information simpletons in the comments section is going to be tremendous to read. I think reading the comments for the series is more entertaining than the series itself, because boy oh boy… Oh, the series itself is good too I guess. ?_?

Shamo v34 – End (!Shamo34) – It was a long-time coming, but Shamo is finally done and fuck this artist, man. This cocksucker mailed it in for the last 2 & a half volumes. It was easy as hell to translate both v33 & v34, though. Took me 2 & a half hours each.

The Hard 13 (!Hard13) – As we’ve seen with all of Saruwatari’s mangas, there has to be a prison arc. We just got out of Kizu’s prison arc and we’re now entering The Hard’s prison arc. Welp, cool.

Tokyo Alien Bros 12 (!TAB12) – As far as I’m concerned, this is my favorite chapter in the whole series. “Tremendous” -Joey Diaz. This also concludes volume 2. Big thank you to tim & korvas for their work on this chapter, they did the bulk to the work.

Oh, right, one last thing:

Koukou Tekken-den Tough v26-27 – (!Tough26 !Tough27) – At long fucking last! I actually had to look up when our last release was and it went back to August 2016. Christ. So it’s been nearly 4 years. These two volumes were a major, major pain in the ass. There were a lot of redraws, a lot of them were incredibly tedious and they just killed motivation. Thankfully, we got three applicants who helped out in a very big way and we made it. Thanks to Panduh, korvas & Mon. We’ve moved on from the fire! …and right into the frying pan with v28+. 27 down, 15 to go. We’ll get there eventually.

I bet like a hundred people are going to read Kimi, with a dozen reading TAB and 3 combined people total reading the rest. All 115 of you, enjoy.
