TAIHEN News!! 「タイヘンニュース!!」Ep 03 “Projects on the Furnace!!”

I was not planning on making another TAIHEN News!! But the situation has called for it.

maou_buttonMany of you are wondering, “WHAT THE FUQ HAPPENED” to the Maou na Ore to Fushihime no Yubiwa project?! It was going smoothly till we hit a snag, yes, a SNAG! The other admin working on the cleaning and the prepping of ‘Maou’ suddenly found out that he does not exist! That’s right, it was as if he was never there to begin with from the moment he was born!! Well, that was what the Government of his country identifies him as. Because of a series of complicated events leading him not being listed as an official “Natural Born Citizen” of his country sees him as an illegal immigrant. To make the long story short, he has to fix stuff on his end, so with lesser people working on Maou, there won’t be a release any time soon. But don’t worry, our contributing translator has done a fine job of translating chapter 7 and it has been sent to another admin to be dispatched for proofing. If things go well, release of chapter 7 is imminent!!
HarutoNatsu_buttonThe raw deficiency for Haru to Natsu has been resolved all thanks to DemonDog. Translation work is 70% done, but the cleaning and typesetting job were put on hold due to a bottle neck project (I’ll go through this in detail on the following project title report). But if the bottle neck project will be cleared, work will resume for Haru to Natsu.
gou-dere_buttonTHE BOTTLE NECK project, translation work is 100% complete. But “why a bottle neck” you might say?! Because of the HORRIBLE quality of the raws!! The cleaner assigned to work on it is having trouble with his RL stuff, plus, the raws is so bad he’s hesitant to even touch it!!

JUST LOOK AT IT!!

Gou-dere ch 14.5 sample

The page is dirty brown, the ink of the back page is visible, the black areas are grainy and the tones are just a mess!

Anybody who has MAD cleaning skills who can help fix this monstrosity of a raw, or better yet, has better quality raws is welcome to help out. Unless you have mad cleaning skills who can turn:

THIS

goudere-c14-5-248-249

INTO THIS

248-249

WE NEED YOUR HELP BADLY!!!

I can do the job myself, but it takes time, a LOT of it. Time that I can use to work on the other releases. So, if you’re a Gou-dere fan who has what it takes to fix bad quality raws, you’re very welcome to help out so that we can put this one out already.

magikano_buttonMagikano chapter 32 tanslation is 85% complete, work stopped due to the bottle neck project Gou-dere =_=

SnO_PICO_buttonSora no Otoshimono PICO was put on hold due to lack of raws, but thanks to dedicated fans we now got the full volume, hopefully we’ll be able to get this project moving again.

seifuku_buttonSeifuku chapter 3 translation is pending for Proofing. Last time I sent a translation to be proofed I forgot to send this one as well (my bad). But once I receive the proofed chapter 7 of Maou this one will be sent next.
tokkou_buttonTokkou Maid Thunder translation work progress is unknown. A new JP translator has applied a few weeks back and he was given the task of translating the latest Toakkou chapter, but he hasn’t turned up till now. Release for this one may take a while =_=

imoutolovru_buttonImouto-Loveru, anybody remember this one? Next month will be a full year this project has not been updated due to LACK of raws. The source of the raws was no help since they only mention something vague about how you can get raws. The only option we have is buy raws from Japan or something, unless there is somebody who has the rest of the raws, this project is going to be shelved for a while.

Other projects that were not mentioned in this report are all suspended til we get enough dedicated staff to work on them again. So, till then please bare with us.
If you strongly feel that we should prioritize a project release you can give us a feedback by voting for which chapter/project release we should prioritize for the next release.
What are you Waiting for? Vote now!!

The outcome of this poll will determine the next release!!

Magikano Ch. 31 – RELEASE!!

Magikano-ch31A string of mysterious blood sucking incident has plagued the town and all the victims were witches. It was suspected that a vampire is on the loose and it thirsts for magician’s blood and something strange is also happening in the Yoshikawa house as well. Night After Night Haruo seems to be going out on a prowl, could Haruo be the culprit? What will Ayumi and his sisters do? Did Merissa turn Haruo into a Vampire? Read it to find out!

You can get the file HERE, or the mirror HERE or just read it HERE!

I know it’s been half a year since the last release of Magikano. As we all know RL stuff is a bitch and so is natural calamities. For updates regarding the other projects, we’ll be taking our time in releasing them because we don’t have enough dedicated staff working on them.

maou_buttonThe planned weekly release for the Maou na Ore  to Fushihime no Yubiwa project will be held back this week because the staff working on it are currently preoccupied with RL stuff, we hope to get around this soon so that we can get on with the story, and yes, the manga is moving in an alarming rate of speed compared to the LN. By chapter 13 Chihiro will have sealed the deal with… Oops! That’ll be a spoiler, you’ll have to read the novel for that.

gou-dere_buttonGou-dere Bishoujo Nagihara Sora, translation for chapter 14.5 has been completed, still waiting for the redraws and cleaned raws, and once they’re done a release is very imminent. Unfortunately, we were not able to find raws for succeeding chapters, naming chapters 15 to 17. Though there are raws that can be found for Chinese translations, we don’t have a CN translator who is interested in helping to translate it. So we’re afraid that after this release Gou-dere will be put on a very long hiatus until we find new raws.

HarutoNatsu_buttonWe have received a copy of the latest Haru to Natsu tankoubon provided by one of our fellow manga fan DemonDog, thanks man! Translation work for Haru to Natsu will resume as usual, but with the lack of translators, this will take a while. We can hope that we’ll get to see a release within the month (I really do hope for that).
