State of the Scanlation...

Welcome to 2017.

Yes, this looks like a small message from the future, in fact its the only way to pin the post to the top of the blog.  That said, a couple items.

I've seen questions in the irc channel, asking what the status is of specific series.  We do have a 'project status' page here for that, and I update it every time we have a release, or we have significant movement towards release on a series.

This month, I am working on a couple more Freezing Omakes, they are really short, however they should help sait the hunger/thirst for anything Freezing.  Don't expect much, each of the chapters are '6-9 pages' no more.

As for  Shishunki na Adam, otherwise known as Adam in Puberty, we are still working on it.  We have 3 or 4 chapters waiting, and just received the translation for chapter 23.

As for other series, they are slowly chugging along.  The holidays did a number on some of  us, and for others it allowed us to catch up.  A couple cleaners and proofreaders where able to do their work over the holidays, some of us of course had to slow down.

Please be patient, I've been doing my best to make sure there is a slow steady roll out of chapters from various series.

We still need raws for Ashitaba Family Husband from c25 to c33, we might have found a source for chapters which are more recent however otherwise we will have to wait until February-April for the next volume.

Unbreakable Machine Doll has NOT been in the last few months magazines, but we do have one that we are working on from before that.  (part of the team disappeared and I dropped the ball here, sorry).

Some of the newer series are not 'dropped' and we remain dedicated to at least FINISHING the current volume.

In the next couple weeks I'm also gonna work on the recruitment application to make it more streamlined.  The one right now seems to cludgy to work with.  (Current applications should be fine however)

* Jan 17th - I was informed by one of our translators (Demo) that his current workload in real life will keep him busy for at least another couple months.  He'll be back soon with lots of chapters for us.    Please keep in mind he works on at least 4 of our series.  Please be patient during this time.
  Edit:  The new application forms are up.  I made it so you no longer have to work through the 'other' positions info.

Ashitaba-san Chi no Muko Kurashi c20 released.

Mom and Hinata decide to go shopping, but everyone else decides they want something, and a surprise package for Mu-kun.  Ashitaba-san Chi no Muko Kurashi continues with c20.

Grab it in irc on #letItGo@irc.irchighway.net  with trigger !ashitaba20 or read it on bato.to (shortly).

Either way, drop in, say hi, and give thanks for your favorite Manga.

Please don't forget to buy the official releases once they are available in your area.

The good news is we have up to chapter 24, and our RAW provider has managed to possibly procure a regular source from chapter 33 on.  The BAD news is we need to find chapters 25-33 so we don't end up with a 'chapter skip'.  (Don't we all just hate that?  Alternatively we  can wait until around mid-February 2017 for the 4th tankobon for the digital RAWs.  This is the most likely solution, upside is we have 5 more chapters to hold us off until then.)
