Otaku and Dango Love

September 21st, 2013 | Posted by TZA in Releases - (0 Comments)

Presenting to you guys two shounen oneshots from Comic Blade and G-Fantasy:

  • Chord Duet by Kurokou Aotoki (Mag Garden) – About swords that are meant for killing, and the man with a sword that can’t kill
  • Hi Hi Hi School Life  by Kurafuji Kazuki (GFantasy) – About an otaku student whose true love is his primary motivator: his fandom =P

This had been one of the first projects of two of our translators (namely Amni and Kujaku). Thanks for the hard work =D Hopefully there’ll be more translators that can help us in releasing other shounen oneshots we wish to do~

Hope you guys enjoyed these as much as we did~

Makai Ouji Release and Announcements!

September 13th, 2013 | Posted by TZA in Releases - (13 Comments)

Today we’re super excited to release the next chapter of Makai Ouji (Pillar 37), something we know quite a lot readers have been anticipating! (Especially now that the anime has aired).

We also have some announcements about our releases, so please do read them ^^

As you might already know, the series has been licensed in English by Seven Seas. We prefer not to work on licensed series, so our releases of Makai Ouji will stop after chapter 45. Hopefully we can continue to keep you guys updated about Makai Ouji by doing chapter summaries though. Thanks to NinjaSheik who suggested the idea of summaries to us via our group email!

Please support the official releases of both the anime and manga if you are able! You can watch the anime on CrunchyRoll and the first volume of the English manga will be released next year! Of course, we also encourage you to support the Japanese releases, which you can purchase on various online stores if you’re not in Japan. It would be wonderful if you buy or subscribe to Zero-Sum as well, where the series is officially serialized.

By the way, it has been pointed out to us that certain spellings we have used are different from the official ones and apparently this is causing some confusion, so we would like to clarify this matter: There were no official spellings at the time we began translating the series, so any spellings we have used are our own preference and may or may not match the official ones.

There are multiple acceptable spellings on the character’s names (e.g. Sitori’s name can be spelled as “Sytry” or “Sitri”).  If the official translations are different from ours, that doesn’t mean that the official ones are incorrect or vice versa. Besides, sites like Wikipedia aren’t to be trusted 100%. Refer to official sites if you want to know what’s more accurate. Scanlators are just fans of the series, and are normal people that can make mistakes. Hopefully you understand that.

We also realise that some people are frustrated with the pace at which we release. We’re quite a small group and real life takes priority, so occasionally we can’t work as fast as we would like to. Please don’t think that a series is dropped simply because there haven’t been any releases in a while. We’re active on our homepage, as well as twitter and tumblr, so you can easily contact  us about the status of any project.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you’ll continue to enjoy Makai Ouji with us ♥
