Juushin Liger Volume 1

This is the new project we've been working on for a while, Juushin Liger by Go Nagai.  If you've never read a Nagai manga before, this one probably wouldn't be a good place to start, not that you shouldn't give it a try anyways.  If you have though, you probably know what to expect.  Mechs, aliens, tits, action, and something sorta not really resembling a plot.  Anyways, it's good fun, and I'm eager to see the next volume (it's only 2 volumes long).

Update on our other stuff:

Vampires - Should be starting volume 2 fairly soon.

NASA - 44 pages done (the first two chapters).  I'm going by page number because the chapters range anywhere from 8 to 30 pages.  The tankoubon is 218 pages plus we're skipping Beta!! because Mangascreener already did that.

Vinland Saga - First two chapters (~60 pages) of volume 10 done.  Next magazine chapter won't be out for about 3-4 weeks.

Happy - We should have a present for all you Happy fans in about a week if everything goes right (read: I get off my lazy ass and start working on it), so stay tuned for that.

Vinland Saga 74 (Joint with Hox)

No, your eyes don't deceive you, we at HappyScans have teamed up with well-known scanlator Hox to bring you Vinland Saga.  We'll be helping with the monthly releases as well as doing the tankoubons, starting with volume 10 as that contains most, but not all, of the chapters done by Mangastream.

So you can grab this chapter and all future releases from here or Hox's blog:

Enjoy, and sorry about the quality of this month's chapter, the raws were REALLY bad this time around.

Vampire 7-8 / Volume 1 END

Finally done with Vampire volume 1.  Rock continues to be a magnificent bastard and now even Chippei is getting caught up in this mess.

No more Happy this week because our translator was busy.  We should have more at the weekend as usual.

The first volume of our secret project is fully translated, once I get off my ass and typeset the last ~90 pages it should be out. Should only take a few days if nothing else arise.

I believe that's all except for we could always use more translators, and if we do get more we might even start recruiting editors.

Oh, and enjoy.

Happy! 120-121

These two were supposed to be out last week but I got lazy.  Should have another one this weekend if I'm not busy, as well as the last two chapters of Vampire volume 1.

Vampire 6

Had this one done a half hour ago but Blogger decided to shut down.  This one's short, only 13 pages, but the next two chapters (the last in volume 1) total 64 pages and twopioneers said he can finish those off next week, so look forward to that.

As for our other WIP project, it's currently at 110 pages translated, fully cleaned, and 80 pages typeset.  The first volume is 192 pages, so we're nearly a quarter done with it already.

In the mean time, enjoy Rock being Rock.

Happy! 118 / Volume 11 END & Vampire 4

Had to move this weekend so the release got a bit delayed.  Anyways, we're finally done with our first volume of Happy.  Only 12 more to go!  We also have another exciting chapter of Vampire for your reading pleasure.

There's also a new project in the works from another famous influential mangaka, there's no actual chapter breaks in it so we'll be releasing it by volume.  Look out for that one in roughly a few weeks.
