Everyone, just want to inform you of a minor issue. Nethandle is having some computer trouble and we've ordered a new AC adapter. He should hopefully be back within the week (if UPS stop being dicks and actually deliver his goddamn package), so all the series he's working on have a delay right now. If anyone is willing to assist in typesetting or double page merging, we have some Ishinomori at hand (namely, Kamen Rider volume 3 is fully cleaned and awaiting typesetting) as well as another surprise Ishinomori. Let me know if anyone is interested

Nethandle edit: Power adapter came and I'm back up and running, currently working on the double pages for our "secret" Ishinomori project.  However, I also just got a full time job so that will impact my scanlation time.  I'm gonna try and still do all of our projects the best I can, but for now we're not going to pick up anything new until we finish a few of our currents ones.  Any translators who wanna translate for us and don't mind us sitting on the scripts for a bit are more than welcome to help of course.  And if there's anyone who's experienced in every non-translation aspect of scanlation (cleaning, redrawing, typesetting, proofreading, and QC), I wouldn't mind help with that, as that's basically my job around here.

NASA (Joint with Hox)

Here it is, Naoki Urasawa's short story collection NASA is now completely scanlated into English.  Much thanks to Hox for being awesome enough to translate this, and thanks to Mangascreener for doing Chapter 9, Beta!!.

These stories are from early in Urasawa's career, so don't expect something like Monster or 20th Century Boys.  Stylistically these are closer to Yawara, with a lot of the stories being more gag oriented..  Anyways, hope you all enjoy reading this as much as I did while working on it.

Happy delay

We planned a chapter this week, but unfortunately, a slight computer error resulted in the translation being lost from StealthMomo's computer. Sorry about that, guys, just got set back a week.

Hey, guys

Sorry, but our TL took a little trip this week. We'll try to have two the next week to make up for it.

To rid himself of this curse and end his life of misery, he must slay one thousand evil men! His quest begins when a young girl seeks his help in taking revenge on her parents' killers... and his quest won't end until the blood of a thousand has spilled!

Devilman Lady
Fudou Jun is a highschool teacher and takes a trip with a group of students. While there, a group of martial artists staying nearby take a strange interest in the girls. These men are actually demons and after changing into their true form break into the cabin to rape the girls. One gets Jun and violates her. She feels her soul being torn apart and transforms into Devilman Lady. With newfound powers and strength she kills all the demons and protects the girls from any further harm. What are these demons and why did she turn into a hybrid of one? What does this mean for her and for the rest of humanity? 
Miyuki Umino was a senior in high-school. Although Miyuki, her two younger brothers and her younger sister were poor, they were happy living together. But, one day all of a sudden her older brother's debt of 250 million yen fell upon them. To pay back the debt Miyuki quit school. What was the incredible choice she took to do this?


Kamen Rider
The story took place in a world plagued by Shocker, a mysterious terrorist organization. To assist its plan in world domination, Shocker recruited its agents through kidnapping, turning them into mutant cyborgs and, ultimately, brainwashing them. However, one of the victims was rescued just before the final step, and his name was Takeshi Hongo. With his sanity and moral conscience remaining intact, Hongo assumed the identity of the grasshopper-looking altered human superhero Kamen Rider and battled Shocker with his newly acquired powers.

Kekkou Kamen
Welcome to the Sparta Acadamy, run by a head master called Satan's Toenail. If you get anything below a 90 on every test, they punish you with torturous devices and the like. But fear not, there is one who stands up to this great injustice, in nothing but a mask and high boots. That's right, a naked fighter of Justice, Kekkou Kamen is here to punish the unfair system of the Sparta Acadamy and bring justice to those who study too much!
