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.
