There are several things to report, so I’ll go straight to the point:
MediaFire account suspended. I got 3 files with copyright complaints in my account, so it got suspended by MF. Most of the releases of this group were hosted there, so, in short, all the past releases are lost. Well, not exactly lost, but I’ll have to reupload almost everything. That’s more than 200 files, so you have 2 options: you either go to mangatraders and get those files, or wait until I upload at least the most popular files. Just for the record, the offending files were: 1) a Code Geass calendar (nothing to do with our releases, but it was stored in my account) 2) One chapter of Coppelion 3) One chapter of Witch Craft Works. The first two files were reported some months ago and I deleted those links immediately, but I was lazy and didn’t delete WCW immediately. It doesn’t matter anyway, what it’s done, it’s done.
Paradise Residence Kosuke Fujishima finally said goodbye to his wonderful series Ah! Megamisama, so he will continue with Paradise Residence starting next month. The series was on hiatus since… what, 2011? I don’t even remember. The last chapter published in Japan was chapter 7, but the time between chapters 6 and 7 was extremely long. As a matter of fact, the only reason to publish ch7 after so long was to promote the first volume of the light novel of Paradise Residence. I really hated that, cause after that chapter, the manga went back on hiatus again. What a cheap sales trick. I was so disappointed, that I lost interest in Paradise Residence, even when we had cleaned raws and scripts for chapters 6 & 7, so we never released those chapters. Anyway, now that the series is going to return, I guess we could give it a try again. We’ll publish chapters 6-7 in the next days, and if we get a translator, we could release the new chapters too. So now you know it: please come and help us if you know Japanese.
Ziggurat People has ben asking for more ziggurat now and then, but we have no translator to continue. We have raws, and the next chapter is already cleaned, we only need scripts. So please, come and help us.
Teppu After the arc of Mawatari is done, it will be time for the epic (it cannot be other way) fight between Mawatari and Natsuo. I expect several double pages to join, so if you want to see a chapter with no delays, come and help to redraw those files. Really guys, don’t think it twice. As much as I love Teppu and I don’t mind to do the whole cleaning, Teppu is not the only series we are doing.
Witch Craft Works The series is licensed, 4chan already released all the chapters available in Japan, and mediafire suspended my account for hosting those files. Wow! it seems we are kicked out of the picture. Well, we have the policy of not touch licensed series, but…. come onnnnn!!! it’s WCW!!!! We’ll delete eventually all the old files and keep only the new chapters, but for now, we are still doing the series. At our snail pace. Sorry for that.
New project We are getting ready to start a new series. The work for that project started a long time ago, and we now have the first volume completely translated. We have 2 translators for the series, but no cleaners nor typesetters. Come and help!!! The name of the series will be revealed in a few days, but I’ll give you some details: it has romance and a little comedy. It’s a set of short sweet stories about couples and their first kiss.
Itadaki & Sugar wa Otoshigoro
We need translators for these series. They are currently on halt, help us to continue!
What about the other active series? there’s nothing much to report, everything is going mostly okay. Just wait for the releases. Okay, that’s all for now.
