That's right. We don't discriminate against zombies. But anyway...
Folks, we really need one or two good redrawers to join us and help with the weekly chapters. We need you to be free on Wednesday and Friday early mornings (GMT) in order to help speed things up. Also, we've prepared a test page that we'd like you to take a stab at. Essentially, you need to remove all the text on it and replace those areas with art that looks as close to what the original would be like as possible. You can get the page here: http://i.imgur.com/XBnhqEO.png
If you feel up to the task, submit your result to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little about your availability, timezone, and anything else you think might be important to mention. And for the love of science, don't submit anything if your program of choice is MS Paint...
Anyway, thanks to everyone checking this out and giving it a try, we appreciate it.
Can't believe it's been almost a year since we released the last chapter...
Ah well. In brief - the translator we had for the series went MIA and it's pretty difficult to find a new translator for such a margin series. However, we actually managed to finally find one, so a big shout out to Voxanimus - thanks to him we're able to continue working on the series again.
With the chapter we just released, 11, the first volume of the series is complete. We'll be starting on the 2nd volume shortly and hopefully be able to deliver chapters without any major breaks again. Enjoy!
I had this hilarious, well-thought-out (did I use too many hyphens here? I have a feeling I did, but I digress...), witty rant prepared to commemorate the first AoT: Before the Fall chapter. But I'm a bit under the weather and my lazy gene is kicking in high gear. So I'll leave you simply with these wise words of wisdom: OMFG NU AoT SERIEZ!!!111!!!
So today just happened to be one of those days. Our raw provider, while inches from home, dropped the issue in a gnarly puddle. Most of the issue was ruined beyond repair. We managed to somewhat salvage naruto but it was super smudgy so it's below our usual quality. The rp is going to pick up another copy first thing in the morning and we'll re-release a proper version along with Bleach and One Piece (it's just too much work and manpower to edit a page that's been smudged with water). We'll get them out ASAP. In the meantime, Ikore and kage will dance for your amusement. Feel free to throw money, paper or coins, and sharp objects at them. In fact, I encourage the latter.
Wow, I can't believe it's been almost half a year already since we last released a chapter of Green Blood. Time sure flies, huh.
Well, I have no excuses, really. It's been the usual. You know, personal life getting in the way, having to find a new translator - all that usual jazz.
We do have something to make up for it though. That's right, we've been working on these like madmen this past week and are now proud to deliver a whooping 5 new chapters to you! Chapters 24 to 27 cover the rest of volume 3, while chapter 28 marks the beginning of volume 4.
Also some more news for you - the series officially ended a couple months ago in Japan with chapter 49. In other words, we have 21 chapters to go for the awesome finale of the series! And don't be upset 'cause you'll miss all the amazing art. The mangaka actually started working on a new series last month, one about Roman warriors, which looks equally as boss as Green Blood. We'll probably get all over it once we're done with Green Blood, but no promises made!
Here's your chance to help out! We're looking for some new faces to join our team and assist us with the series that have a tendency to lag behind for a variety of reasons (time, resources, fapping, etc).
We're looking for a permanent translator for UQ Holder. We are looking for someone willing and eager to translate UQ Holder to lessen the burden on our translators. If you're skilled and would like to help out with this, please send an email to email@example.com with a brief bio including any and all experience in translating manga.
Edit: Thanks for the applications everyone, we've found our translator: Southrop! He'll be translating UQ Holder starting chapter 4.
cleaners and/or typesetters to help out with monthly releases.
We can't train you from scratch, but we can help you refine your
cleaning/typesetting if your performance meets our rigid standards. To apply, send an e-mail with a few samples of what you feel best represents your work. Any previous experience is a huge plus, any need-to-know information about you (nothing too personal if you don't feel like it, but hey, if you want to confide in us about how you still sleep with Mr. Snuggles we won't judge you...too much).
Edit: Thanks for applying! The cleaner position has been closed due to overwhelming number of applicants.
Redrawers for both weekly releases (Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tail, etc...) and monthlies.
Mainly we need artists for this, specific training/tips regarding techniques on how to redraw manga can be given if we see the seed of dedication and motivation sprouting from you (wow, that sounded poetic...please give me a second as I pat myself on my back).
For these positions please visit our recruitment page.
Since so many of you have been asking for updates on Jump and even more complained about the lack of it while it's out on other websites, we figured some things should be clarified.
Jump was on break last week due to Japanese holidays and so the new chapters of Naruto and One Piece are scheduled for today. In fact, we're currently slowly working on them. Slowly because many of our staff are away for various reasons, most of them simply being on holidays. In other words, it'll still take us a while, as unfortunate as that may be. Don't expect it before tomorrow morning GMT.
As for the leak of the super early Jump over the weekend on other websites? See, what happened was that the Chinese official publisher, who gets the official chapters way in advance much like Viz in America, leaked those super early chapters. Whether it was the actual publisher or some individual within the company or w/e, we have no idea. Several groups went ahead and slapped a shitty Japanese -> Chinese -> English translation on those leaked chapters and released them. We'd rather not tread into such murky waters so we'll just continue doing things our usual way.
Thanks for your patience guys and we'll get the newest releases out as quick as humanly possible.
The End Of Yet Another Great Series
I know, I know. We haven't worked on this series in a long time. Still, it's one of those series that goes way back for some of our staff, as far as the good ol' Binktopia days even. As a team, we never forget the series we once worked on together and when they come to an end we try and release those final chapters in a combination of 'honoring' the series and its mangaka(s) and honoring the staff members that used to work on them. Sounds a bit corny, but whatever, that's how it is.
With that said, look forward to the last and final chapter of Soul Eater - now available for your reading pleasure here on MangaStream.
