Update #26

Hmm same as usual except:

1. D.Gray-man (would be Chapter 206) is on a break this month according to a tweet from MangaStream..(sucks!)

2.Black eyed Susan Chapter 8 is out

3. Aaand Midnight Hunters Chapter 13

4. Also Dragon Lullaby Chapter 8, all on

5. A Summary Compilation of Cheese in the Trap (Chapters 25-46) has been made of all the translations, because of the author not wanting it scanned at the moment. This week’s chapter is an extra so I’m guessing that’s why there’s no translation.

Okay it actually turns out to be quite a big post..

6. Usagi Drop has been released by /a/ Collective Scanlation and they also posted

If by any chance Scantily Clad releases a barrage of chapters after this, I will immediately stop my attempt at a scanlation project and let them do it.

I will also do this if  Hachimitsu-Scans new mystery project turns out to be Usagi Drop

They are also looking for Translators to help them out.


Update #16 has been updating alot recently:

1. Black Eyed Susan (Chapter 8 ) is up there.

I’m also considering posting up pictures just to brighten the blog up abit… And also sorry for all the small posts..

2. Just so you know it seems like MangaStream is not scanning Soul Eater anymore but still doing Soul Eater Not!

Update #11

1. Just that the Cheese in the Trap (Chapter 41) is up here.

2. There will be no Jump releases next week (29April-5May), MangaStream Tweeted:

On another note, there will be no new releases next week, all the big magazines are taking their annual break. (google up “Golden Week”)

Golden Week is a pretty much a group of bank holidays all in a short space of time, for more info here’s the wiki page.

I also remember reading somewhere that theres a double issue coming out at some point I have a feeling it might have been this week… but I’m not sure..I could be imagining things.

Update #9

Lots of scanning groups seem to be closing at the moment especially so quite big ones,

1. FrankyHouse Scans has apparently shut down the reasoning behind is here (Written by a editor). They’ve not released since 2010 but their last post was 18.2.11, and had nothing saying anything about shutting down in it, quite the opposite asking for suggestions for improvements and talking about upgrading servers. So I’m not entirely sure what is happening and it has been dead for a while but if it’s dead or dead dead I don’t know. A list of the series they were scanning is here. If you have any other info to help clear up confusion please comment!

2. Keishou is shutting down due to work/financial reasons.

Hi guys, it’s Zambo.

I come with some sad news to all… Keishou is going to be closing down indefinitely. We’re going to close the site and may or may not some day in the future start back up, but I doubt it.

One of the reasons why we’re closing down is because I just don’t have the time to be able to clean and typeset all of our releases because I’m having to do some work for my university assignment on the side and this takes up a lot of time, and I can’t ever find time to do that work.

Another is that I’m currently trying to save up money for a holiday, and every month, I’m having to dip into my savings to pay for the web hosting and raws.

We’ve had a great run and I thank you all for supporting us in these last two years, I can’t think of better fans than you, and I greatly appreciate all the people who donated their hard earned money just for us to stay alive, and also all the team members that worked with us who helped out with translations, cleans, typesets, redraws and with raw providing.

You’ll most likely see me around on the interwebs since we scanlators never really disappear, we’re always around, so if you ever want to talk to me, just google me up and try contacting me.

Goodbye, and thank you, Keishou, for teaching me everything I know and for making me who I am today.

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

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.

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.
