Spider-Man Volume 1 and Queen Emeraldus Volume 1

Told you we'd have some Leiji Matsumoto. This time it's Queen Emeraldus, Matsumoto's space pirate heroine on her solo adventures, with more to come before long. SystematicChaos and Katatonia deserve every applause for their exemplary translations and dedication. Gegege no Kitaro and Tiger Mask will resume as soon as Katatonia and Chaos can get to them again, and dare I say that Happy itself may be starting back up shortly. Unfortunately, our Keaton TL had to withdraw, so if anyone wants to keep this series going, please let us know. We'd love to continue Keaton at any time.

So visit Gantz Waiting Room and And Hokuto no Gun for the best manga there is. DynamicPro and I will have more good stuff coming soon. Shutendoji shouldn't take much longer. Violence Jack's still in progress and Other Side of Sky has a special project for everyone

Devilman Lady Volume 17 - END:'s done! Go Nagai's epic, 17 volume series is finally complete! Quicker than I ever expected, I don't mind telling you. What's left now? Shin Violence JAck, Devilman Lady's sequel! As well as Nagai's Mao Dante remake, Space Adventure Cobra, Dynamic Heroes, Super Dynamic Robot Wars, Shin Mazinger Zero...some of these you might notice have no raws, so we've bought them. Now, translation and volume fees have cost a lot, so I would ask politely, if you appreciate our scans to go to DynamicPro's and donate a bit. Hundreds of people read our releases, so if everyone just donates 1-5 dollars apiece, we'll make everything back and raise money for even more great projects.

Shutendoji, Grendizer, Mars, Jack...all that will continue as well! Stay tuned!

And some more Ishinomori before too long! And in talks for more! Anyone who wants to help us out, give us a ring.

Happy and Keaton are a bit stalled with Net's internet down, but we plan to get back to that. Thanks so much for reading, everyone. And thanks to OtherSide and Dynamic Pro for being the best partners imaginable.

Kamen Rider: COMPLETE (Joint with Offtopia)



Alright, guys, I feel I owe a bit of an explanation on these. Kamen Rider's translation was finished ages ago, but the cleaning took us an enormous length of time to several factors: Morten from Offtopia was handling it and he was swamped with many other projects, as well the sheer difficulty of cleaning Kamen Rider, which has an enormous amount of double page spreads. Adding to the difficulty was Net's new job, which left him no time to work on Kamen Rider, so it lingered in limbo until Morten could finish it up.

anyways, we've had this one proofed a bit more thoroughly to make it the best we can. English isn't Sarutobi's first language, so we apologize for any issues there. We plan to have some good proofreaders for what happens in the future. Kikaider is not forgotten about. Mutant sabu has assured me he'll finish it, but he's very busy with other projects at the moment, so I can't say for certain when it will be. However, we are planning a damn good few other Ishinomori works. Sarutobi and Mutant Sabu are not giving up here, and I'm asking around for some other help. In fact, be patient, and Hokuto no Gun is going to join with us for a very special treat for Ishinomori lovers before long. And if all pans out, Katatonia and I will have a very special one in the more distant future.

Rest assured, no projects are forgotten. Happy and Keaton may take longer with Nethandle's internet being a prick and we can use more editors to get things down. Gegege and Tiger Mask are likewise still in our thoughts and have not, nor will they be dropped if I and Katatonia can help it.

Enjoy the conclusion of Shotaro Ishinomori's Kamen Rider and take a good look at Offtopia for more great projects!

Violence Jack chapter 20

This is the end of volume 1. We'll go back and release the first volume before too long hopefully with Offtopia and DynamicPro's help. We'll move on to volume 2 as soon as Katatonia gets his internet back.
