Updates, Updates, Updates!!!

Here we are again for another activity report. As our little fox is toiling away in the toilet we are busy with stuff ourselves. Anyway, this little segment is to answer some of the questions you guys have been sending through the contacts and comments. Here’s one interesting question from “Anonymous” (a guy who doesn’t want to be named) asks:

“What happened to this:
Is this abandoned already?”

Ah… The Maid Cafe “Curio” Project, it’s been more than a year… This was actually one of the original projects we have in our list, but the guy who volunteered to translate it hasn’t turned up yet. We don’t want to go running away with it for ourselves, so we are still patiently waiting for any signs of life from the volunteer translator who took over the work from Ren-chan. If he won’t turn up I suppose we’ll just proceed with it ourselves then, also, the raws we have are in terrible condition. We are actually waiting for good Tankoubon scans of this series or a new image cleaning technology to be invented that will help enhance the grainy raws to make it a bit more readable (even I had trouble reading it).

Another interesting question about the ‘Haru to Natsu’ project posted by “Nebilim”, he asks:

“So, is this manga bi or tri monthly? The releases are so random…”

We try to keep our release cycles in check but, since our translator is being moody, some of our due projects don’t get finished in time and this causes havoc with our releases schedule and that is the reason for unexplained gaps between releases in the series we are working on. If you guys are following the normal releases, we have already released HTN chapter 8 ahead of chapter 7.5 (extra chapter) this is because the cleaning work for this extra chapter is EXTRA demanding. The raw we had for the extra chapter is a bit too grainy and lacks clarity compared to other raws and the mix up with the transcript also added to the delay of its release. So, to make up for that delay we put it out as soon as we finished it for you guys to enjoy. Actually, we don’t know when the next Haru to Natsu chapter will be released in Japan, previously it was thought to be every 2.5 months per chapter, but that was shattered this year for the long absence of chapter 11 which was supposedly been out late December (if the 2.5 month cycle was followed). Yep, you read it right, we have the raws till chapter 11 and that leaves us with only three chapters left before we wait for new raws to come out. But don’t worry, unknown to many of you guys, the HTN tankoubon included 2 more extra chapters that we haven’t released yet! Yep and that makes it a total of 5 unreleased works as of late. So, I think we have enough stuff to last for the next half of the year.

About other projects: Boku to Kanojo no XXX, the title sounds like some sort of porn, but don’t let that deter you, it’s actually a shoujo manga by Morinaga Ai, a sci-fi, love comedy story about a guy named Akira who swapped bodies with the girl he loves named Nanako. But the thing is that both of them seem to be more suited in their current situation, the girl who was trapped in the Akira’s body (Nanako) is doing more of a good job at being manly than Akira himself and Akira is doing a lot better job at being a girl than Nanako. The manga has been concluded in volume 8 and unfortunately there are no tankoubon scans available for it. We can only find photos of the manga floating around, but those are not enough to make proper releases. We have received a lot of requests for updates, but… putting out something readable is next to impossible, we may be able to put out crude releases, but that’s all we can offer for now. We’ll keep you guys posted with work progress on this one.

Magikano chapter 28 is already in the works, and it won’t be long before we will see its release for that.

Sora no Otoshimono PICO! This one, well, we already sent chapter 3 for translation, but our other translators who were assigned with chapter 3 haven’t turned up yet. It’s a bit troubling since its been months now…

Onii-Ai, we are also waiting for translations of the other chapters from the guy who translated the pilot chapter. Not much we can do here, but if he won’t release new translations we’ll have to proceed on our own with it.

Hanaukyo Maid Tai… The story plot is starting to get twisted again and translations for this one has virtually stopped due to lack of motivation… But we’ll try and get something done with it.

The report took a bit longer, but if you guys have some questions, just leave a message.

    Thank you for taking your time and making these explanations. Most groups woulnd’t bother with such explanations. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for the updates as well.

    Hmm, I actually do have the tankoubon of Boku to Kanojo no XXX vol. 8. If you don’t mind waiting a while (two weeks-ish), I can probably try to scan it for you folks to scanlate with–although, I’ll be frank that it will be my fourth time scanning a manga volume so the quality probably won’t be that great. I was actually thinking of eventually putting up some translations of the final volume myself, but due to some time-conflicts, I haven’t been able to do so. Well, feel free to Email me [it should be listed when you receive this comment?] if you do care for some potential alternatives that I may be able to arrange.

    Good luck with all your work in progress in the meanwhile~

    • 3. Ren-chan  |  March 4, 2012 at 4:10 am

      That would be a great help!

    • 4. Orulyon  |  March 14, 2012 at 3:57 pm

      I have HQ scans of vol.8, and ill be donating them to the group…
      since i already debind my vol, there is no need to debind another i think. XP

      • 5. B-Werx  |  March 15, 2012 at 3:48 am

        Thanks! that would be a HUGE help. You can send the link through the Contact page, and of course identify yourself, or put your nickname for proper credentials.

      • 6. anon-TL  |  March 15, 2012 at 7:18 pm

        Thanks for chiming in that you could help these folks instead. I do appreciate you notifying me as well.

        I actually was going to try not debinding my copy for scanlation–since there were no double-page spreads and the panels never really went off the page– but, I do imagine the quality would be better after doing so [more like, I also just have no easy means of debinding really.]


        ps. Good luck to the team again~

    • 7. Orulyon  |  March 17, 2012 at 1:31 pm

      you´re welcome:)(thank you you too for offering your help first than me, it was really nice of you;) Well, I debind mine with…my hair straightener, loool. Its way easier than with an Iron, hairdryer, microwave or x-acto. 😉

      anyway, yes, Good luck to the team, and thank you so much for completing this project, Iam a huge fan of this manga, so Im really happy~

      • 8. B-Werx  |  March 18, 2012 at 5:39 am

        Thank you as well, we won’t be able to continue without your help. I’ll be digging up other unreleased chapters that may still be lying around the old MFM archives and finally repackage the entire MBG releases from volume 5 to 7.

      • 9. Orulyon  |  March 20, 2012 at 10:41 pm

        @ B-Werx: Awesome!*.* thank you for your hard work!;3

        Oh and btw, before leaving I´ll leave here a wonderful new to the fans of this manga: the author is gonna launch a spin-off this June!


        We dont know yet if its a sequel or an Alternative version of Boku to Kanojo no xxx, the only thing sure is that our 4 main characters shall return XD

    Its good to know you still have plans for Hanaukyo Maid Tai. Personally I loved the comic for a long time now and I will keep checking back to see if updates are released. Regardless on how long it takes I still hope that you will continue to release the other chapters as there are fans who still have interest in its continued translation.

    thanks guys!

    Is Urasai going to be regular series you guys are doing, or was it just a one time time thing? Just wondering since I don’t see it on the releases page.

    • 12. B-Werx  |  March 12, 2012 at 4:30 am

      It’s a Regular, but it’s only available in the Forums. Updates will be at least after a few months, because we only have one translator working on nearly all our projects. If you want to get the chapters, go visit the Projects section of the Forums. Also, links are only available to registered members, so you will need to log in first.

      • 13. kol  |  March 12, 2012 at 5:51 am

        thanks for letting me know

  • 14. imercenary  |  March 14, 2012 at 2:00 am

    Updates are always awesome. Its good to hear that the group hasn’t imploded (yet?)

  • 15. Bergil  |  March 15, 2012 at 5:39 pm

    Why would the group implode? That’s a ridiciuous thought.

  • 16. billborden  |  March 31, 2012 at 6:46 am

    Thanks for the update; it’s good to know what’s going on. If it helps in the motivation arena, there are still some of us out here who wait eagerly for your HMT releases.
