The Way of Ryu chapter 5!

Wasn't this long enough? Hopefully we can get it out more regularly now.

And geez, did you guys think we'd miss Ishinomori' 75th birthday without his best? Well, here it is and here we are! Thanks to our new translator for this one as well, and let's hope he can maintain a good pace with it. Robot Keiji is waiting on FKMTKrazy for translation, but it shall come. Kamen Rider Black Volume 3 is in the translation check phase as well, and our man Hox is back with plans to resume Alabaster in February, and the other stuff we've come to expect from him.

Expect more Grendizer, Shutendoji and Babel, plus Cobra and other new projects when our man Systematic Chaos can check those, too! Jack volume 3 is with Arles, and we're waiting on Katatonia to send more Kekko Kamen translations for us to typeset. As ever, we'd love for new translators and editors to help out!

You guys know we love Shotaro Ishinomori. We know we love Shotaro Ishinomori. The man holds possibly the world record for most pages produced by a single writer with sequential art (128,000 pages total). His art, his writing, his creativity...he was the man. In everything. We're proud to do so many of his works. Unfortunately, I have to announce we'll be discontinuing plans for Kikaider now. It's out on comixology, so follow suit and buy that and Inazuman.

But Road to ryu, Sabu and Ichi, Robot Keiji and all those other great Ishinomori works? HappyScans is gonna get those done.

But while we're at it, since this is a special day for Shotaro, let's give you some announcements....

First of all, we will be helping the Midnight Crew with Kamen Rider Spirits after Kamen Rider Black!  The third manga of the seminal Rider franchise!

And next...we will be doing Ishinomori's GORANGER! The first Super sentai manga from Ishinomori and the template for the whole series. We have the raws, it's just a matter of scanning, translating and scanlating later, so you can look forward to that!

But besides that, let's hear from our fans. Any other Shotaro works that need more love, guys? What would you like to see us pick up by him?
EDIT: Just a page missing from last release. Corrected!

Way of Ryu, chapter 5

    1. Cyborg 009 is a consideration for the future.

      As for BOTI...just be patient. We can hardly scanlate it before it's out

  3. Ishinomori's 75th birthday? Now that's a celebration I can get behind!

    On the subject of scanlating the GORANGER manga, will that include
    GORANGER GOKKO?
    Apparently, it was Ishinomori's comedic self-parody of GORANGER including cameos from another famous character of his, ROBOCON (if I remember his name right).

    Anyway, keep up the good work.

  9. Wow, thanks for consider Goranger as the next project! *_*
    It would be great if you also translate Jun - Shotaro no Fantasy World or Uchuu Tetsujin Kyodain.

    Thanks for your work!

  10. I second Gilgamesh. Watched the anime some years ago, it has potential but don't actually live up to it. Then, I got the manga and it seems crazy different from the show and I really want to know how's the original story..

  11. Anything by the Sensei will be great! What about 009-1, Hotel, the Manga History of Japan... and I'm seconding Jun, and thirding Gilgamesh too.

    1. Well, Jun has almost no-dialogue, right? It would be a easy one to do. But I think a little backstory would be necessary since it was made to express Ishinomori's sadness over the lost of his sister back then.

  12. Keep in mind, if anyone wants to, or know anyone who can translate and wants to have some Ishinomori done? Don't hesitate to contact us.

  13. Are you guys still doing Happy? And is there anything you guys need to keep it going/start it again? If this has been previously discussed, I'm sorry I missed it, if you could direct me to the post, or just rehash your announcement it would be much appreciated.

  15. Well just wanted to ask if you guys are going to be doing the last volume of BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL?

    2. It's no worry. If you know someone interested in translating, we can be on top of it faster
