Donation drive: Help needed, and Shingen Takeda 6

Alright, I usually don't like to do this, but this is an emergency...Kazu's computer is absolutely shot and we need to ask you guys for help. Right now, the cost of getting a new one is 200 dollars, so we need to ask for donations here. I will post every single dollar that comes in, and Kazu has promised me that in return for this help, he will be cranking things out as fast as possible, especially Cobra.

Hundreds of people read our stuff, so if everyone could just spare a few bucks, we'd hit our goal in no time. This is a huge, huge favor, I know, but you will see it rewarded. I can assure you that you're going to see manga like Cobra and Fantasy World Jun quickly afterwards.

Thank you all very much!

Right now, it stands as 0 raised, with 200 needed

And after this heartfelt plea, enjoy Shingen Takeda 6!

Date Masamune Chapter 50

Need for typesetters now.

The Way of Ryu, chapter 15 (part 2). Start of volume 3!

Chapter 15 continues here! Ryu must deal with a super persistent predator. And God has something to say about it!

....of course God has something to say about it, I swear this manga would be half the length if he'd just shut up!

ahem. Still waiting for Kazu to return, so hopefully that'll be very soon. In the meanwhile, as he's the one with the credits page, a huge thanks to:
AAA for the translation
A1oner for the typesetting and CrazyAnkan for aid with cleaning. You guys are all awesome.

In the meantime, any typesetting and cleaning help would be very appreciated!

Here's the beginning of Ryu volume 3!

Vagabond 315

A new chapter with our friends at Guren! The village is suffering a hideous famine and must last until harvest...Musashi ponders over whether he has a place to die and what that entails..

Let's all wish for Kazu to come back, and then you guys can see more Hidamari no Ki, Sabu and Ichi, blazing Transfer Student and maybe even Fantasy World Jun...

Hidamari no Ki/ The Tree in the Sunlight chapter 1 and Cat's Eye chapter 1!

Let me start by saying that, unfortunately, it seems Kazu needs to get a new computer so some releases may be a bit delayed until he can get one. Your patience is appreciated.

Now, the first series to bring in now...

One of Osamu Tezuka's greatest seinen, concenring the final days of the Shogunate and the friendship between a samurai and doctor therein...lots of cultural and historical information, a fascinating plot and excellent characters. Hahah42 is being a champ translating this one for us.

The second we bring you..

It's Cat's Eye by Tsukasa Hojo! About three sisters searching for their father, a famous artist. The three are thieves who steal his art pieces to make him recognize them, while owning their coffee shop Cat's Eye. It's a funny, fun and well drawn manga, and Hojo is quite the mangaka. In fact, we recommend his city hunter being scanned by Nerieru Scans and Kangxi's Translation lounge!

In the meanwhile, any new translators and ESPECIALLY editors would really help.

3, Street of Mysteries and Kuuki No Soko END

Well, it's not right to call them 'the end' exactly...Street of Mysteries has one more volume, but we can only get it in French. If someone would like to translate it (and if anyone else can scan it), we'd love to see it done.

As is, though, here we are:

Mysteries Chapter 6

And the short epilogue Mysteries 7

Now the final two Kuuki No Soko stories!

I sure had fun with these...Tezuka short stories are always a  blast

And 16

And Kuuki No Soko Complete

And Street Of Mysteries complete

I hope you liked the short stories. Our translator for these will be continuing on to another Tezuka series I'm sure everyone here will love (a very great seinen by him), and his other project should be in the editing phases by Illuminati Manga now.

As always, I resubmit my request for cleaners, typesetters and translators. It'll really help a lot of projects.

I'm also sure a lot of you want to know about Yawara: Village Idiot was working off Kai Boh's old scripts. Stargood will continue on with his own translations.

Oh, and don't forget to go buy a copy of The Crater! There are only 2000 of them and they're going fast, and it'll show everyone we want more Tezuka in English!

Spider-Man by Ikegami with Hokuto No Gun, volumes 2-5 (END)'s been a while for this one. Mainly as Morten of GWR stabbed us in the back and never bothered to do his part in this after we translated it. And cleaned it. And bought raws he was going to scan. But never did. Gotta love honest, reliable people, huh?? Still, we make it a policy to get stuff done eventually, so here we are. Done. And dear lord, thanks to the people who stuck with this, especially a1oner who was a damned CHAMPION on this monstrosity.

Really, the idea of a Japanese adaptation of Spider Man has potential. Potential utterly wasted after a few chapters. The delusions of violent grandeur are bad enough, but our hero is an unlikable little prick who rarely solves situations when he has a rather open chance which usually results in someone else paying the price as he babbles futilely about some nonsense. Very few characters are likable, the social messages are heavy handed and some scenes are plain freaking bizarre (masturbation scene comes to mind).

and because it's Spider-Man, instead of fighting the Green Goblin, The Chameleon, the Lizard, Doctor Octopus? We get to see him fight....disgruntled Vietnam veterans and marijuana dealers. Yeah, Marijuana bizarrely becomes the tool of Satan in this manga. And the manga may contain little to no Spider-Man.

Anyways, I'm glad this is over. We really could use editors and cleaners for some series now, and translators as well. Kekko Kamen and Vagabond could use the editing help and we have some series that could use aid with cleaning. Maybe a new one or two that could require more staff and more planned projects in need of a translator.

Also, have a look at this project
It's a great new company, aiming to publish Tezuka's The crater, a book of short stories. there are only 2000 copies to sell so please lend support and we can see more great Tezuka works published by these guys. Everyone's gotta start somewhere, so let's all make it happen!

And for Spider Man...

Volume 2

Volume 3

Volume 4

Volume 5

And it's done.

Tiger Mask, chapters 7 and 8

Well, this's a mite embarrassing...

Quoting Chaos: " Okay so due to a bit of a clerical error, chapter 7 was skipped and chapter 8 was mistakenly released as chapter 7. We apologize for the oversight. So if you downloaded the previous release of “chapter 7″ please download this chapter 7 and rename your current chapter 7 as chapter 8! Then that’ll take you all the way to the end of the fight with Black Python, and what a fight it is…"

So any online readers, just replace these.

here's 7

And 8

The Way Of Ryu, chapter 15 and Volume 2 complete

Here's Chapter 15

And the complete volume 2!

AAA has returned to us with this beautiful manga at last! Let's keep our fingers crossed he can keep up! But 2 down, six to go!

Ryu has discovered the horrible truth of the Tower Of Harvest, but what now? God has a theory (sorry, God has a freaking dissertation on the subject), and we see a new character arrive...

Enjoy, everyone! And remember, we would love more typesetters and cleanes!

Triple threat time! Shingen Takeda 5, Robot Keiji 6 aaaand...

And now...the momeny youv'e been waiting for...

Heck, maybe we should've made this the ransom note for more Urasawa.

Happy 156
Well, it's about time this got more uplifting, wouldn't you say?

As for what we need now...editors and translators!If anyone knows Italian and Spanish, we could definitely use the help as well, as we have some series in those languages, too! Don't be shy, people! We have a need for the help and we'd love to have new friends and crew members

500th Release Post

And...drumroll please..

This is....

The finale of Blade Of The Immortal
Made some revisions and improvements and here's Volume 30 in two parts, new and improved, so make sure you check it out!
Part 1
Part 2

Blade Of the Immortal chapter 206

Long last, it's all over...the series Hiroaki Samura did for the better part of two decades, the series that heped who knows how many people get into manga in general, the second longest running manga in English! (Ah! My Goddess is number 1 if you were wondering)

The war is over, life goes on...and now it remains to be seen what happens to Rin and Manji...and an excellent epilogue as well that gives the story very much the flavor of a continuing adventure.

It might be the last time we see Rin and Manji, but for now...we hope you've enjoyed the journey of the inhabitant of eternity...the blade of the immortal.

A huge thanks to those who made this voume possible:
Other Side of Sky for translating, even the end pages, and the freaking advertisements
Footnote for his incredible work on the double pages and typesetting
SofaKingAC for his proofing work
CrazyAnkan for taking care of all that pesky text.

Our 500th release is the end of a very special manga to me and it feels strange to never look forward to another volume. But all good things must come to an end. For now, look forward to current projects, and maybe even a new one Footnote is helping on...and can't forget Shin Mazinger Zero, which has its first volume from us in the editing works now.

We have other series to look forward to, though, so I beseech any translators or editors, cleaners or typesetters to sign on and give a hand! Work with a great crew and bring in some amazing manga!

Enjoy. It's been an honor

Street of Mysteries, story 5


Be-bop High School vol. 01 ch. 03


Be-bop is back, and lets see what kind trouble Hiroshi and Toru get themselves into. Looks like a love triangle and a fat chick who can't take a hint. Looks like both guys have a scheme up their sleeves, who's will come out on top? My bet their plans will backfire and they both get screwed in the end. Heres Be-Bop 3.
