Fun fun fun, here’s your Medaka fix. Who is Mister Unknown? I dunno.
Woohoo, one giant leap forward to clearing the gap. Or should I say… a Great Leap Forward?
Silly Mao. Anyway, enjoy these releases, beware of zombie powers.
Woosh, Medaka Box. Enjoy these two chapters,
expect the remaining chapters by the end of the week.
Woot, happy Friday the 13 everyone! I hope you all enjoy
this holiday and find yourselves having a good time.
To celebrate, here’s some Medaka Box, more fun stuff from here. Enjoy ~
Another release from me should find its way here on Sunday.
Whew! It is hot down here in the south. How hot is it? It-it’s hot….what else? Stop asking stupid questions. What’s wrong with you? Anyway, As most of you have heard, MangaHelpers, Mangatoshokan, and now OneManga have fallen to the publisher Nazis. That’s what’s got Alice all depressed (Actually it’s some kind of Japanese Tuna pun, but who cares). I knew these publishers were going to get serious. I work with publishers in my bookstore, they’re a bunch of douche-bags, trust me.
However, this doesn’t mean we nor other hard working groups are going. We’re here and it’ll be hard to get rid of us…….unless they threaten us with lawsuits, then screw that, I’m not going to jail. I’m the kind of guy that would be the “prison bear”. *shudders* All in all, we aren’t giving up manga. At the very least, we should have the right to translate that which isn’t being published in the states. Hell, in capitalism (or in america, it’s basically economic anarchy), the fat-cats are able to practically rape the gray areas of the laws, so at the least, we should be able to get our share of some publishing loop holes.
Now, you should know that the publishers ARE working with the authors, but we can’t hate them. The authors have a right to their money they get for their work, however, if their works aren’t in America, then what harm can we do by translating it. Granted, the collection sites like OM, do use ads to gain money, but we have no say in that. The authors actually lose a lot of say in their work once it’s under contract, so I’m sure their are those who don’t really care, but they have to take a stand or else they lose their contracts. In short, the authors are just names the publishers are adding so that if we oppose them, it looks like we’re attacking the authors as well. We aren’t. We want them to get paid and succeed. We NEED them to succeed. So, don’t think this is a battle against the authors. It’s not.
So, the reason I’m being so long winded in my message here isn’t just because I feel ashamed that my co-leader is releasing more than me (lol), or that I just take forever to make a point(lolx2), it’s because I want you people to express your opinions as well. Not just here, but also on our forum. We recently added a feedback section on our group forum because we were getting a little lonely and we missed you guys….also because no one on irc really talks u_u…. The link is found in our join the group section, but I’ll also provide a link at the bottom here. I want you guys to discuss and tell us what you think. You’ll have to join as a member, so feel free to count yourself as a member of our family……just a member that doesn’t work……you know, the drunken uncles.
As to the things to come. I’ve been working in real life so I’ve had my hands full, but I’m still here. I’ll have some releases ready by the end of this week at the latest. I’ll have some Medaka Box, and some Onidere coming your way soon. May not be like Cross’s fonts of Medaka, but hey, he didn’t give me much to go on with that >.> Onidere will be coming out faster in the coming weeks, so we’ll catch up and get back on track. Sorry for that one, had some misunderstandings, but we got it worked out. Also, if you’re all good, I might be able to get some Mayoi out there for you. I promise you all, you’ll have your “Demon-Box Overrun” soon.
So, hang in there, chat it up on our feedback section, and try not to make a mess of our forum. We will moderate it and as our cmertb is very fond of it, we will make sure it’s a nice, friendly place for our fans. That’s it for now folks. See ya later.
Riding first class on the catch up train, next stop 3 chapters of Medaka Box.
Including chapter 52, which marks one entire year of Medaka Box.
Technically it isn’t a year, the year passed a month or two ago.
But I’ll take what I can get.
However, unlike Donovan’s goal,
this release won’t be replayed 500 times with 70 different camera angles
with commentators from 10 different countries by ESPN. I mean really?
Anyway, here’s your stuff. Onidere will be released soon and expect
a slew of Bamboo Blade by the end of next week.
Ah fun, I figure many people were waiting a good amount of time for this.
I can’t really say I have a good excuse, but I’ll try to give one. Basically over these
past couple of months, I’ve been thinking about what we’re doing here, and with the
recent advent of the collaboration between manga publishers in America/Japan,
it has been brought to light to me again. Along with an up and coming service that
goes by the name of Open Manga, I’ve been deluded into deep reflection, mainly because
it feels like our time is almost over. As such, I fell into the awful habit of procrastination.
Because of this, I’ve been really unresponsive to my group members,
which I sincerely apologize for, and also to the fans, which I also apologize for.
Of course, I had a moment of epiphany after looking through some of our archives in my
time of reflection, and came upon the reason I started this group in the first place, which
was because another group delay/stalled releases or just didn’t release all together without
informing the fans of anything, so I’ve become everything that I’ve disliked, so you can bet
that I won’t let that happen if I have anything to do with it.
In short, now that my searching journey is over, things will be different from now on,
I’m going back to the basics and going to be more competent.
Oh right, one other thing, if any of our fans are going to New Jersey’s upcoming anime convention AnimeNEXT,
feel free to say hi or something. My nametag will say [Cross], though I can’t really say I’ll be lurking any specific area. Oh yeah, I’ll be posting cosplay pics that I deem amusing :3
Pocky gifts will make the releases move along faster.
Anyway, without further ado, here’s your manga.
Ah fun, well here’s some Medaka Box.
After this chapter, I’ve come to love Kikaijima more so than before.
So continuing on our quest to catch up on Medaka Box, here’s chapter 45.
If you thought that things got real last time, things get even more real now.
Here’s another chapter of Medaka Box! It’s about time that things got real.
It’s also nearing its one year anniversary, so that should be rather fun.
We’re catching up, so stay tuned.
I find it interesting to note that Yasuda-sensei seems to be a C.C. fan, seeing as C.C. is more endowed than Kallen.
Not complaining though. So who is Suzuhito Yasuda and what does he have to do with this release? He’s the author of Yozakura Quartet! Artist behind the character models of Durarara! and also the artist for the character models of Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor. But I digress, here’s another huge load of Yozakura Quartet for everyone to enjoy, so please do, it goes well into Volume 6 so we actually managed to catch up and surpass the local releases.
However, we encourage you to buy the volumes when they become available to you.
Anyway, what a fun release, here’s a bunch of stuff to read. Oh yeah, welcome back Super Dog Rilienthal ^^
(So a little while after I realized how cruel this was so I split it up more sensibly)
April Fools!…was yesterday, so enjoy this legit release of Hanamaru Kindergarten.
But wait… the chapters look similar to the last episodes of the anime that just finished airing,
you mean to say that this was all timed to release at this time? No. It is all a real neat coincidence,
as the translator Seme-_-Uke was under hard times, so she couldn’t complete some of the chapters.
However, she’s back now so stay tuned for more Hanamaru Kindergarten to quench your thirst after the
anime’s end! Also, the next chapter of Mayoi Neko Overun just came out, and will hopefully be out by next week, but you should expect another Mayoi Neko Overrun! related release sooner than that (anime).
CXC is composed of Kamen Riders, we only go into action once the public is oppressed by lack of releases.
After all, the heroes don’t make an appearance when all is good, right? Speaking of appearances, we have an appearance of a new project, namely the series “Appearance of the Yellow Dragon!” It’s already some chapters in, but due to lack of releases, we’re “saving” it. Check out previous chapters on your local online manga reader, the premise is pretty straight forward, so have fun with this manga full of silly antics. Now onto the more important news, here’s a bunch of releases to quell your hunger and even more important, recently I’ve been interviewed by MangaToshokan, so if you want to learn more about me and the group, check this out: read the interview here
Find these poses in one of our releases and you get a cookie
This is the fifth time I’m typing this and WordPress is annoying me right now so I’ll keep it short, Medaka Box, Onidere and Maria†Holic a.k.a. MOM. Also, here are two more vomics for Medaka Box that came out, there’s one last part which should be out later.
Hm, well Torako has Tora, which is tiger and there’s chocolate so I managed to keep this relevant in terms of Valentines Day and the Chinese New Year :3
Enjoy your manga
Fun time with Medaka Box and Onidere. I’ve run out of witty things to say, so these chapters will have to do it for me.
Also! I just found a link for the Medaka Box’s vomic! (manga set to voice acting, officially made)
If you ever wondered how Medaka would sound, here it is!
It seems the MediaFire link is has a corrupted page, so just use MegaUpload for now, I’ll update it later
Woosh, another week and a half, and another chapter, enjoy the crazy antics of Zenkichi and company, people seem to be really excited now that Zenkichi has taken the spot light, though who knows how long that’ll last >.>
Medaka Box Chapter 36
First let me get this out of the way:
Now, I have received a lot of questions lately about the projects that we’re working on, our policy from international translation groups, etc. In retrospect if we still had a forum, this wouldn’t be a problem, but we all know what happened to that. Well I figure I should answer everything here and now to avoid any further confusion.
1) Why aren’t you releasing “******”? Work on it now pl0x.
Okay, you can ask about our progress, but please don’t over do it. While I have no problem with this question, don’t command us to work on it, it’s rather rude, and it might even make me work slower for spite.
2) Where’s ****** series? I haven’t seen anything in months.
For this I’ve devised a list of all of our projects that are being worked on, with a status report on their progress.
- Akikan: There are no raws for it, at all, though I’m well aware it’s gone far by now, so it’s on hiatus.
- Bamboo Blade/Bamboo Blade B: The translations for BB are there, I just need to work on them. On the contrary, the translations for BBB aren’t there yet, but it isn’t completely forgotten, I’m just waiting.
- Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion: No suitable raws yet, if it gets too serious and a good Volume 6 raw comes out, then I’ll screw all ethics and work with the annoying low quality Volume 5 raws.
- DualxJustice: I’m simply waiting on the translation.
- Hanamaru Kindergarten: Same as above, but expect better progress on this.
- Kami-sama Dolls: It’s being released at a pace that I’m fine with, nothing to say about this.
- Super Dog Rilienthal: A couple of internal problems here, but once it picks up again it won’t stop. Also, I have a joint planned after the next chapter release, though that was a while ago, so hopefully it still stands.
- Mayoi Neko Overrun!: Raws for Chapter 2 should be out soon actually.
- Medaka Box: College began and bad timing led to chapter 35 being delayed a week, right now I’m waiting on progress for chapter 36.
- Onidere: Same deal as Medaka Box. Also, we’re doing a joint with Sexyboi Scanlations, so that’s something to look forward to. The next release should be soon.
- The Sacred Blacksmith: Waiting on Tankobon raws, if it takes too long then we’ll just use the ample magazine raws.
- Maria Holic: Being worked on regularly, nothing left to say.
- Sket Dance: We haven’t technically dropped it and I was contemplating picking it up again but it seems another group beat me to the punch. However, they haven’t released in a while, so this is still lingering in my thoughts.
- Yozakura Quartet: I just need to get to QCing the rest of the chapters typeset, it’s complete up to the 30s.
3) Can we host/translate your projects into “******” language?
Yes, just credit us in the end. As for hosting, leave nothing untouched, or else I will unleash my fury upon you.
That should be all for now.
If anyone has any other questions that I didn’t tackle here, feel free to ask here and now and I’ll answer it.
Okay, so maybe I should explain a couple of things. First off, we’re picking up the series Maria†Holic seeing as things have been quiet for a while. Expect more activity on that sooner than later. Also, we’re picking up Onidere, a current series running in Shonen Sunday. The details around that are that I noticed that the current public translator will be going on a hiatus without details on return, so I figure what better chance to make sure that the series doesn’t become forgotten with time due to lack of translation. Now before anyone jumps at me, the translator said he was going to go on hiatus in late January, I somehow forgot about that detail and jumped the gun a bit which is why this chapter is done by our translator despite the fact that the series’ current translator still hasn’t gone on hiatus yet.
But what’s done is done.
And one final announcement, because of the upsurge of applications recently, we’ve run out of space as a majority of the applications were for typesetter positions. Currently we don’t have as many translators to meet the ratio to typesetters, so we’re closing off recruitment for all positions except for Japanese to English Translators. The deal will be that once I deem our translator count to be at the point of warranting recruiting, then we will be opening up recruitment again, until that time recruiting is closed off for all positions but translators. However, all applications that were made before this date will still be honored, as I’ve already fit you guys into the equation.
Now then, enjoy your trapfilled, yuri-induced, box related manga!
Alright, so before I get any heat about acknowledging Nu’s birthday but not Noel’s birthday, I’ll admit that I completely forgot about Noel’s birthday on the 25th. For that I am shamed, but as you probably already know, ghosts already met with me about that >.> Hm? Oh so you want something manga related? Fine, since this is our last release of the year, and even more so the decade. So here’s Medaka Box, before that, here’s a little tribute for Nu as it is her birthday.
Well guess what, I have a bunch more BlazBlue 4 koma where that came from!
We’ve compiled and translated all of the 4 koma vignettes that came from the official site (found here)
It’ll be available within the download links at the end of this post and I’ll be posting the new ones as they come out.
But that’s not the end of the 4 koma madness, as I have one more treat.
Here we have a collection of Holiday themed 4 koma vignettes featuring all of the current series running in Weekly Shonen Jump. All of your favorite series are represented, so be sure to take a look!
And without further delay, here are all of your releases. Here are our final releases to close out the decade!
Happy Holidays and have a happy New Year from the CXC Team!.
Merry Christmas and whatnot. Enjoy the latest Medaka Box. Oh yeah, to promote more use of our irc, we have bot triggers now for all future releases to download, so come on down.
Medaka Box Chapter 32
Well it isn’t X-Mas without your X-Mas day presents. Therefore I am giving you guys quite a bundle to boot.
You’ll get Hanamaru Kindergarten, Medaka Box, Kamisama Dolls, The Sacred Blacksmith and a bunch of Yozakura Quartet to get you in the merry mood. Though, I hear that some of you celebrate some holiday called Christmas (whatever that is) so I might have something to compensate for that minority when that time comes, so stay tuned!
