Vampire 21

We've reached the climax of the story.  Next chapter is the final in the volume, and for a while was the final chapter of the series.

Cyborg 009 volumes 1-10 (Scanned by Random Scans/kickthekitty)

Here's a little something I did for fun. Cyborg 009 is a classic, influential series that's very popular in Japan.  It's so popular, that after Ishinomori ended it he was convinced to bring it back for a total of 36 volumes, serialized in about 8 different magazines.

The point where he originally ended the series, however, is volume 10, which is exactly where the Tokyopop volumes ended.  Right, guess I should mention that these are the Tokyopop volumes, which were scanned by the ever awesome Random Scans.  Normally I wouldn't do something like this but A) Tokyopop is dead in the US and B) I have no respect for them as manga publishers.  Also I was bored and this was a quick editing job.

Anyways, enough of my babbling.  Enjoy the series, and don't forget to thank Random Scans for making this possible.

Devilman Lady Volume 4

And let's give a huge thanks to our friend, OtherSideOfSky for this amazing release, and once again to DynamicPro for their hard work. Without both of them, this could not be possible. OtherSideOfSky will be taking over translation now.

Enjoy, everyone, and look forward to the next releases!

PS: Also, Yawara's a mite stalled right now. If anyone is interested in editing it, please let us know.

Devilman Lady Volume 3 (Joint with Dynamic Pro & Neptise Scans)

Lot of releases this day.  Here's Devilman Lady volume 3, which I don't actually work on but am posting because Wright is busy.  Dynamic Pro has more info about this release than me, so you should visit his blog here, and while you're at it read all the series they've done if you haven't, it's all great.

Happy! 134

Haters gonna hate.

Hot on the heels of NASA, we have our weekly chapter of Happy for you guys.  Enjoy.

EDIT: Oh, and if any translators out there are interested in working with us on the series Boys on the Run  send us an email to or  We're also interested in doing more classic series by authors such as Ishinomori Shotaro, Yokoyama Mitsuteru, and of course HappyScans mainstays like Tezuka, Nagai and Urasawa, so if anybody out there is interested in translating something by these authors let us know.

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.

Kekkou Kamen 2

No idea what's up with the transition on pg. 68.  As the Table of Contents shows, it's all part of the same chapter.  I guess this is just Nagai being Nagai.

Devilman Lady Volume 2

It's with great pleasure we bring you this new release. For those who are unaware, volume 1 of DML was finished quite a while ago by other scanlators, so here are chapters 1 and 2:

Volume 1:
with all credit to the original scanlators.

For those who don't know, DML is a dark story, but widely held as one of Nagai's best, with some of his finest art, a great story and deep characterization. Not for the squeamish, though.

We also have to give a big thanks to DynamicPro for typesetting this release, as well as Farah from Neptise Scans for translating it. For the future releases, Volume 3 will be have Farah's translation, but after that, as other circumstances have kept her busy, OthersideOfSky will be taking over on Volume 4 after he's finished Amon: The Dark Side of Devilman.

So a huge thanks to Dynamic Pro and OtherSideOfSky and to Neptise as well. Do yourselves a favor and check their current and future projects out. Hope you enjoy Devilman Lady, everybody!

OtherSideOfSky and DynamicPro releases:
Neptise Scans:

Expect more soon.

Kekkou Kamen 1

Got a new project for everyone, a classic series by the ever enigmatic Go Nagai.  Kekkou Kamen is about a masked warrior who's gimmick is she doesn't wear any clothes (aside from gloves, boots, a mask and scarf).  As you can imagine, there's lots of nudity so if you can't handle that then this series isn't for you.  But for those of you who've already read some of Nagai's work that won't be a problem.  Anyways, very hilarious series, I highly recommend it.

Vampire 19

Wow, already halfway through volume 3.  Really enjoying the series, quite a lot more than I thought I would when we first started working on it, but I'm starting to get a bit worried considering the series is supposedly incomplete. I just hope the ending isn't too inconclusive.

Vampire 18

It's three in the morning and I had nothing better to do, so here's a chapter of Vampire.
