I don't think anyone actually check this place to know what I'm doing, but I figured I should post something so it doesn't look like I've abandoned this translation business. The reason I haven't picked up any more projects since the AGLS release is because I'm now involved in an effort to translate the Gamecube game Super Robot Wars GC, together with some awesome guys from /m/ who found a way to make this translation possible (though it will only work on an emulator, not on a real Gamecube or Wii, unfortunately). I might post details later, this is just a placeholder for now.

Well, here it is, it's done. I think. This is the full release, though I might make revisions to fix any errors that are spotted or whatever.
As I said in my first post about this, this is NOT a translation patch, it's an external translation to be read alongside the game. Do read the instructions on how to use it, though I think I managed to make it fairly simple. By the way, this is of course only the translation, not the game itself- I will not be offering a download to the game, go search for yourself if you want it.

Okay, people have been inquiring a lot about future projects,
requesting suggesting series and stuff, so I figured I'd make a post to clear a few things up.
First of all, I can only pick up a series for translation if raw scans are already available. I don't scan the raws I use myself, I work with what I find on the Internet. I guess I'm pretty good at finding stuff, I can use Share and Perfect Dark which helped me find some kinda rare scans in the past, but there's a lot of manga out there that just don't get scanned at all. In which case, there's nothing I can do.
Second, I have to like the series. This is basically what it comes down to, I'll translate stuff I really like and want more people to read. I'm a one-man group, so it's entirely up to my own taste. You can get an idea of what kind of stuff I like from my projects so far, but I don't plan on being dedicated to any one author or genre.
At the moment, I have a few series I'm looking into as possible future projects, but I won't mention anything by name until I'm sure I'll do it. I still have to read them before I decide what I'll do, and I want to finish AGLS before I do anything else, so it'll be a little while before I make any announcements. Just stay tuned I guess.

Again, this is the sequel to Mazinger Angels. And it's already over. Yeah, this series is only two volumes long. And it ends abruptly, like the author had to finish it in a hurry. Maybe it got cancelled or something, I don't know. It's still pretty fun, though.
For some reason, the raws I found for this volume were much cleaner and sharper than the others, which made it a bit easier to edit, and also caused most pages to compress a little better as png, which is why they're in that format. Saved about a whopping 4mb total. True story.

If you're looking for just chapter 28, it's here.
I had to upload the volume 4 batch in two parts because it went a little over Mediafire's filesize limit. Also, I've replaced volumes 1 to 3 with new versions; several pages were re-edited to conform to the standards I've adopted while working on volume 4. But I've made no changes to the translation (other than changing "Silene Mode" to "Sirene Mode", which I decided makes more sense, and also seems to be the official spelling), so if you already have the old versions, there's really no need to replace them, unless you're about as OCD as I am.
This series is followed by Mazinger Angels Z, which I will do next.
