About future projects

 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.


  1. A one man team? Then i apologize and my thanks are even more big!

  2. You got balls. Take all the time in the world. Hope to see what you have in store for us.

  3. I run a small-time translation group and your stuff is pretty inspirational. I remember seeing Mazinger Angels for the first time a few months back and thinking I'd like to read it sometime but it probably wouldn't get touched for years if ever. And then your releases came out at amazing speeds and look pretty great. Makes me want to work on my own projects more.

    I do cleanup and bubbles on my group's stuff, lemme know if you ever want to work on something together. Don't wanna be spammy so I won't link my own stuff, but just look around for "opentrain" if you wanna find me.

  4. Suggestion:
    Mazinger Otome ;
    Shin Mazinger Z - Shougeki! H-Hen ;

  5. Hey did you want any help with manga translations?
    I have more time than I should, and a lot of practice with photoshop.
    It might make things easier on you
