Current Projects

Blade of the Immortal
"To end his eternal suffering, he must slay one thousand enemies!" Manji, a ronin warrior of feudal Japan, has been cursed with immortality. 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? 
Happy!
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!




Tiger Mask
Follows the exploits of legendary wrestler Tiger Mask, as he dominates the ring and battles against adversaries from his training grounds, The Tiger's Cave.
 






Vampire
"Long, long ago, humans lived almost the same as beasts... If you got hungry, you could just find something to kill and eat it.  If someone attacked you, kill them too. Everything was kill to survive, kill to survive. Then people started acting smart and making laws. The laws kept them from doing pretty much everything they wanted to do. Beasts, on the other hand, still have no laws, or etiquette. I predict the day will come when an almost mutant breed of humans will appear, sinking to the level of beasts for freedom... Here, I will call them 'Vampires...'"



Vinland Saga
Thorfinn is son to one of the Viking's greatest warriors, but when his father is killed in battle by the mercenary leader Askeladd, he swears his intent to have revenge. Thorfinn joins Askeladd's group in order to challenge him to a duel, and ends up caught in the middle of a war for the crown of England.

  2. wow someone is scanning Happy! That makes me so..

    Alright. I own the entire series in Japanese and always used Stephen´s translation from Mangascreener. It was a real bummer when he announced to stop his translation work and Happy got stuck at ch. 103. But it continues!

    Could you possible also upload the translations, just the text?

    Keep on the good work.

    My email: stuartbilo2@hotmail.com

  3. Added the .txt files with the translations to our mediafire page, from now on I'll upload them as we release the chapters.

  4. Ah thanks a lot. I mean if you have the original you should read them raw, don't ya think?

    I was almost desperate enough to order the French ones and read them with Google translate!

    It seems you have a great interest for Urasawa (not without reason). It would be great if such series as Pineapple Army would be translated.

    Luckily, the anime of Master Keaton has been subbed and its worth the watch.

    Keep on going strong.

  5. So happy to see this series back in production. Thank you for the translations and the scans. I hope some US publisher finds a way to pay you all and Urasawa and his publisher, and publish this in the US. iPad, anyone?

  7. Thanks very much for picking up the scanlation of Happy! I'm looking forward to seeing what Miyuki is up to now. I really doubt that this series will ever be licensed in English, so you guys saved the day.

  8. Thanks for scanlating Devilman Lady!

  9. yeah, not to bust your bubble :D but I do have a question and couple of comments about the BOTI project.
    FIRST of all I can't express my gratitude towards your willingness to scanlate this manga for it's pure awesomeness makes you very brave to attempt to clean, redraw and translate such masterpiece.
    However, chapter 168 (original count?), or chapter 171 (darkhorse count?) states it's tittle to be Nourishment Part II, while at the same time the chapter before it (ch167) is tittled Through the Deep Snow part VII.
    Missing something?

    oh, and what's the more correct tittle Through the Deep Snow or Deepest Snows?

    oh and...damn xD now I forgot, though I bet I'll remember later when I check my collection, I was having a problem with some chapters missing from back when delinquent-manga scanlations were still alive and I was wondering if you are interested in filling those gaps. BUT like I said I have to check that out if it's even a real problem, I just might have made a mistake myself.
    It's hard to tell because of all this tittle has been through T_T.

    anyhow thanks again for picking this up, you are my heroes!

  10. I'm not sure, but judging from Volume 27 Samura likes to jump around with chapter titles i.e. 181 was Chain Chaos part 4, then 182-183 were Dirty Snow parts 1-2, then 184 was Chain Chaos part 5. Nourishment part 1 was most likely in one of the previous volumes. Can't speak for the translation issue since I don't know Japanese nor does our translator for this series (he's translating it from the German volumes).

    As for missing chapters, I did not notice any missing chapters when I first read the series (got them off Mangatraders I believe). At first the series was being scanned from the Dark Horse editions though, and then when people picked up the series from the Japanese volumes the chapter numbering was adjusted to reflect that, maybe that's the problem? If not, tell us which chapters are missing and I'll see what we can do about it.

  12. Well from wiki's list of chapters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Blade_of_the_Immortal_chapters) there is no indication of a chapter named Nourishment Part I.
    That's why it occurred to me that it might be some mistranslation/miscount or just a missing chapter.
    However those don't include everything up to volume 25 and there are some chapters with untranslated titles, but none of them I believe caries such title.

    I appreciate the quick response!

    oh, and don't worry about the previous chapters, I think that was a slip of my memory since when I look at my collection it seems that everything is in perfect order.....

  18. Are you guys still translating Happy! I dont mean to sound like a whiner but i feel like its been a long while since chapter 147. I no everyone has lives n all, but I was wondereing when 148 will come out.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey Anon, Yes, we are still scanlating Happy!, and yes, it has been a while since the last Happy! release. However, to quote Wright last week under the Yawara Chapter 72 release post "Might even have some more Happy and Keaton soon..." So don't despair. Chapter 148 should be released soon-ish. Can't be more specific than that, sorry.

  20. thanks for doing translations of tezuka-sama's vampire - been looking for that one for a while! ever thought of doing alabaster? read the synopsis for this and it looks to be a compelling and psychotic read, right up there with mw or ayako...

  21. hello to happy scans! (again)

  30. What about Happy?

    ReplyDelete
  31. You guys live up to your name. You make me happy so often! Especially with you being the only ones who seem to care about Nagai and Yokoyama's classics.

    Speaking of which, keep up the good work on Violence Jack, hope it comes soon, and once you're done with Giant Robo, I would love you all even more if you translated Tetsujin 28!

    Thx for all the good stuff! :D

  33. Hey,
    I really like "Ashita no Joe", so could you please continue to translate this manga? I really like the work you are doing, and Ashita no Joe is a wonderful manga that should be available to read for everyone!!
    Thanks!

  34. Hello,
    Have you abandoned Yawara? And Happy! is also rarely updated. I would have loved them both to be more regularly updated as they are both completed in Japan.

    If this was possible I would help by donating, and even join as a cleaner.

    Thank you very much for Master Keaton, MARS, Historie and NASA, and the others I haven't gotten to reading yet!

  35. Yaaay! Thank you so much for going strong with BOTI. All the wait is worth so it!

    1. Have our emails? anything you're interested in?

    2. No I don't have your emails?
      How about 'Blade of the Immortal' or if you need assistance with say 'Vagabond' that would be of interest, something along those lines.

    3. Give me an email at zachrosenberg18@gmail.com and we can discuss things over there. Thanks!

  40. I am so unhappy that Happy! isn't fully translated, but I am also very happy to see that you guys are translating it. Please continue to translate

    ReplyDelete
  41. Vagabond is an amazing series. When will you be releasing more manga? I'm addicted and it need not be rushed, but please get back to work on it!

    Kingdom and Blood and Steel are top-notch manga as-well. Keep'em coming. But, let me reiterate.... VAGABOND where have you gone!!!

  44. Hi!

    As a Urasawa fan, it was spectacular to read Happy! - so different from his other works! Thank you for scanlating it!

    Out of curiosity, what is keeping the Happy!-project in an hiatus? A lack of RAWs? Busy with other projects?

    Have a great spring and summer!
