2017 Update

Don’t mind the old man behind the curtain… Just doing some household cleaning. I’ll be putting up direct downloads to our series soon, since a lot of the torrents are dead.

Speaking of dead, we’re pretty much a dead group now. As if the 2 1/2 years since the last post wasn’t a strong indicator already 🙂 I’m still in contact with Durendal, and there may be a chance we could resurrect the group at a later date.

That being said, there may be some life left in this old beast still…

New Chapter: Sakura Tsuushin V15 C162 released!

Hey Gang,

How’s it been!? It’s been a good minute, right? Well, we’re not really back to full steam just yet, but here’s the latest chapter of Sakura Tsuushin for you to enjoy. Hopefully, releases will be more frequent, I mean, we’re doing a chapter every two years at this point, so the bar is set REALLY low! Also, we’re on the lookout for a translator(s) to assist Durendal, as he’s pretty much busy with real life duties these days. If you or anyone are interested, please drop me a line. So, here it is, enjoy the chapter!

Volume 15 Ch 162 – Torrents

Group Status

Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates to the page here. What can I say, we’ve got extremely lazy over the last few months. Between work, family, school, life, and everything in between, we have to set priorities, and manga is rather low on our list at this time.

We’re not closing up shop, but I would like to say we’re in hibernate mode for now. Which means we’ll continue to release chapters when we can, but at this point, we’re not going to keep to a set schedule. In other words, when we release is when the next chapter will arrive…

A few notes:

We have officially dropped Prison School… Seems that enough people complained about our “quality” that Durendal said the hell with it (although not nearly as nice!). There are enough groups out there doing sub-par quality, so you can get it from them. What we find amusing was that Prison School was D-E-A-D in the water before our group picked it up. Oh well..

Our next release will be Noel no Kimochi, we’re finalizing the chapter now, and “hope” to have it released in the next few days. We’re still working on Sakura Tsuushin as well. That one is still in the editing stage and will take a bit longer to release. Yaiba isn’t exactly dropped or dead, but seeing as only durendal works on it, it is set by his schedule, and right now his schedule is more tight than mine.

That being said, if there are other groups or individuals that want to help us out, especially in regards with Noel or ST, we’ll entertain offers. Of course, we’d like to work with established groups or people that are experienced in scanlating. We really don’t have time to train new people, sorry. If you’re group wants to “take over” a series, I suppose there is no way of us stopping you, but if you do, please drop us a line.. we may be willing to share material and at the very least, it would let us know someone else is doing a series, and we could concentrate on our other titles.

The goal here is to finish Noel no Kimochi and Sakura Tsuushin at the very least. We still have a ways to go with Yaiba. It will take some time, but that’s the game plan anyways. Questions/Comments, just drop us a line. Thanks for sticking around and we’ll be back with a new chapter soon!

Noel no Kimochi V4 C28 released!

Hey gang, yeah, ole Ares is still lazy, and since I’m getting a Vita tomorrow, that probably won’t change! LOL.. But, Eye was good enough to get a chapter of Noel ready, so we’re pushing this out to everyone! Hope you guys enjoy it!

Volume 4 Chapter 28 – Torrents

So actually, it’s not all fun and games for me.. had a dentist appointment today and got a tooth extracted.. that’s never fun! But as soon as I recover (tomorrow likely) I’ll start working on a new ST chapter for everyone to enjoy.

Just a side note, I’ll be travelling overseas in March and April, so I’m not sure how releases will look for those months.. We’ll try to get something out, but if there is a usually long delay, don’t freak out, ok? At least I’ll be nearby where I can crack the whip on durendal to push out more translations! 😛

And we just renewed the domain name, so we’ll be around for a least a couple more years!

Downloads Updated / Site Update

We have went through all of our titles, and updated the downloads for each one.  We’ll be using MediaFire from here on out, unless something happens, and they get shut down too 😛  So, the process will be, we’ll do releases on torrents and IRC, and after a few days, we’ll update direct downloads on MediaFire.

To download a chapter, you’ll just have to navigate to the series page. Towards the top of the page, right below the description, there is a link that says “All Chapters on MediaFire” or similar, just click on that, and it will take you to a navigation tree, where you can download what you need.  We tried looking at hosting the files locally, but I could not find a suitable method that would work and protect us from leeching and such.

 

Sorry for the lack of updates as well, I blame myself first and foremost, aside from everyone else 🙂  I haven’t had motivation to do much manga as of late.  I got a chapter staring at me right now.. I got the translation, it’s been cleaned.. I just need to typeset.  BLEH!  Really hard work, right? The worst of it is done, but it’s still sitting there!  Oh well, we all get these bouts of being lazy.  We’ve also been doing scanlations now for almost 7 years, so you can expect some laziness from time to time.  If you really want to blame something, you can blame my PS3 and NBA2k12 for keeping me busy 😛  Anywho, I say all that to say, we should have a release out soon.

Wow, this has been a big update.. Anywho, that’s where we stand… downloads are fixed/updated and new chapter out soon!

Noel no Kimochi V4 C27 released & Site Update/Downloads

Hey gang, here is the newest chapter of Noel no Kimochi, be sure to check it out!! Look forward to more soon!

Volume 4 Chapter 27 – Torrents

And yes, we’re aware of many of the downloads are broken. With the closing/seizure of Megaupload, in essence a lot of our download links went away. We’re looking into alternative, not sure if hosting it ourselves would be viable or not. If anyone has suggestions, leave a comment.

Long overdue house cleaning

So, I’m still planning on getting a chapter out to you guys today or tomorrow, but something that’s almost as pressing is the fact that we need to overhaul the site. I’ve neglected some of the smaller things around the site and now it’s become a lot of little things that need to be done.

Some of the things that need to be done include:

– Make a series page for Prison School

– Update download links for past releases

– Clean up the archive page

– Update hosted releases (if necessary)

– Update “About Us” page

– Fix color scheme on menu

About that last one, I may actually just develop a new theme for the site.. still debating on that one. Mainly, this post is just to give everyone a heads up, and if you visit in the next few days, and everything looks like it’s gone to shit, don’t worry, I’m probably just updating, and it will be back to normal shortly. Carry on!

We forge on…

After some discussions with durendal and the rest of the staff, we decided we’ll give it the ole “college try” and forge on… Just be aware if you’re looking for a release schedule like days of old, you’re in for major disappointment. If we get another translator on board, we’ll seek out additional help in terms of editors and cleaners. But, as of right now, we’re on a skeleton crew, and it’ll probably stay that way. We’ll try to squeeze out 2-3 chapters a month, but right now, not promising anything.. So we’ll see how far this goes..

Sakura Tsuushin V14 C153 released

Finally, after what seems like an eternity, we got a new chapter for you guys, ST153.. and this closes out Vol 14, finally! It just took over a year or two to finish, right?

Anyways, I’m not too sure as to the future of the group, I’ll need to talk with durendal first.. if you want to read the details, its in the credits page of this chapter. If you really want to help out, and know a Japanese-English translator who would like to help, send me an email or comment.

We should have an update soon, as to one way or another, so stay tuned.

We’re still lurking!

Hey gang, just wanted to let everyone know that we’re still active, we haven’t dropped completely off the face of the earth just yet 😛 As I stated before, I’m in the middle of an overdue vacation.. I’ve been spending some time with Belldandy and Durendal, so we haven’t had much time to work on manga as of late.. Balder was close to finishing up the ST chapter he was working on, but real life issues come first, right? Anywho, we hope to be back to some kind of normal routine at the beginning of the new year.

Until then, I really hope everyone is enjoying the holidays.. Have a safe and happy Holiday Season and we’ll see you all back soon!
