Update #22

1.Just a warning I picked up from BakaUpdates:

Anonymous writes: The Go Comi site has been relaunched and claims to be the original company and it asks for
donations through a Paypal account. This is confirmed to be a scam.

The original article:

“The former website that I used to run has been turned into a scam by unidentified
criminals unrelated to Go! Comi, a company which no longer exists. It is not real. Do not donate.
Gonna [sic] my lawyers on them. Please share this post with manga fans and readers.”

Sorry but it’s likely all the updates are going to be late for the next couple of weeks because of Exams and I’m getting up at ridiculous o’clock and getting back at ridiculous o’clock and would rather go to sleep at the moment.


Update #7

I finally found out the shortcut for a # symbol!

Here’s a small update again today, okay turns out not to be so small…

1. Ares is completely scanned and the latest chapters can be found on the A-teams site. (Sorry if I confused anyone I originally wrote not completed and only just realised..Mind Blank! Amazing manga despite the art.)

2. Black Abyss and Twisted Curiosity are merging to form a new group Fallen Syndicate

New Beginnings…

After a long and continuous discussion, The Black Abyss and Twisted Curiosity have decided to come together; to merge and forum the new group Fallen Syndicate. We hope followers from both of our communities will continue to spend time with us here at our new forum and join us as we start a new chapter.

Please help us make FS the best group it can be.

Malenaah, AKZ, and Mai-Lynn

Fallen Syndicate

Their new forum is now found hereBlack Abyss is scanning Pandora Hearts and Kuragehime (recent releases, a full list can be found here.). Twisted Curiosity‘s full list can be found here. Their new baka-updates page is here.

3. Scum-scans and Japflap have both shut down

Scum-Scans has officially closed now (although their last release was 8 months ago). They were in the business for almost 6 years, but now it’s time to stop.

If you are interested in continuing their projects, please contact miyagiCE. They have some unused raws, translations, and cleaned pages.


c_k writes: Japflap closes its doors after providing 6 years of scanlation after receiving an email from VIZ MEDIA EUROPE requesting them to delete their releases from their site and to stop scanlating Naruto.

4. The translation of chapter 40 of Cheese in the Trap is up here. Please visit the arts site to up their hits and thank the translator.

I will update later with manga’s the groups were scanning and add more links in. Sorry but got to go and see family.

Update 3

Not much happening at the moment

1. But you might like to know that Mangastream is starting a shoujo section so is now scanning Skip Beat from chapter 173.

Apart from that theres nothing I can find…and although there hopefully wont be that many updates on various things to mention, I might not post for this week because I’ve got a performance on Wednesday and haven’t had an ounce of sleep and generally feel like poop.


I was thinking about, if you like manga and read abit it’s super useful for keeping track on what manga you read and about new releases ect. and if you haven’t found out about it yet heres a link. And if anyone from Baka-Updates  ever does come across this post I would like to say thank you for all your hard work maintaining the site.

But something that Baka-Updates doesn’t do or simply I haven’t found it yet is, updates about what the Jump is doing or simply where you can read/download the manga. In most cases though you can just get it from the scanning groups site. So I was thinking about posting links up here as to where you can download the manga from, and/or where you can read it online from and various other bits of information like whats happening to various series. I will only post releases for the series that are harder to get hold of or their releases don’t come up on update sites.

So I’ll try doing this for a while but I nothing really happens I’ll probably stop if it’s not useful to anyone.

A Year? Really?

I was just looking at an old blog and there was a tribute to Ace dying and the post was dated 25th Feb 2010. Has it really been a year? What’s happened since then? 1.Luffy escapes. 2.Luffy trains 3.Crew reunited 4. A months break from serilisation. 5. Arrive at Fishman island. Is that all that’s happened? Sorry It’s just wierd…

But Bleach has been getting better I still think the previous week’s was better but it’s much better than usual and making me look forward to the next chapter, but OP on the other hand isn’t so good. I also waiting anxiously for the last volume of Ares! partly because although it’s unlikely I wouldn’t put it past the author to make Ares loose… And there hasn’t been a Cheese in the Trap release in ages! Making me miss it. But then again D.Gray-Man will be out soon but I might miss the release ’cause I’m away for a wee bit.

Sorry this is just a general rant on my Manga at the moment, my brain hurts too much to do anything else but hopefully tomorrow will be better because I’ve had some crap days. Well, it’ll all have to even out. So I’ll stop moping. Anyway one positive is that I got another piercing only 2 more to go hopefully and I’ll have to start saving!

Five – Chptr 42

I’m so happy! After being depressed that Coyomoose had shut down so my means of reading Five had disappeared! It’s restarted! Although chapter 42 wasn’t all that good, I’m just soo happy it’s back! But I’m trying to do the breakdown while reading and getting distracted by other series, like I’m reading Five chapter 24 hoping to read up to Ch42 to do the breakdown but I also found [switch] ch28+ which I have been trying to find forever! I’ve also found a online Webcomic called SIN and I really like the setting. PLUS! I’ve got to revision and I’ve got work tomorrow and got asked to go in early and do a couple of extra hours… So I’ll probably sort everything out and come back later tonight to finish it.

Sorry, I finally managed to get round to it! I’ve got soo much to do at the moment its silly but I don’t have normal timetable either at the moment and that helps. But back on track, it starts with Hina going shopping with Dari. And in the previous chapter Yamachika tells Kojirou that Mishima Urahara is visiting and Kojirou acts funny and annoyed confusing Hina. Who tells Dari when they are shopping. Dari just gets annoyed that she’s talking about them. I love Dari! Hina sees two men picking on a young girl so naturally goes to hep her they end up spliting ‘casue the guys had run away but they were getting shouted at. And poor Dari got worried where his sister went. It also turns out that the child is 16 when she looks about 10, but Hina tells the others about her back at school.

Kojirou is still in a bad mood and HIna asks Toshi about it and they say that Kojirou can’t deal with small cute things and his cousin has abit of a complex, going off on one when girls are close to him. But it means she’ll hate Hina for being friends with him too. Then the person is question arrives and surprise surprise it the girl who Hina helped.Like the Guys said she starts shouting and getting pissy about Hina and eventually Toshi steps in annoyed. Hina kinda sticks her food in it abit saying that Urahara shouldn’t think of her as a girl and Urahara tells Hina she’ll take her down by any means possible. Hopefully this arc will be better than this chapter because I wasn’t too keen on this chapter, but I’m sorry it took an age to write and It’s not that good either…
