July 2011 Schedule

Since I won't have a scanner until the end of July, I can't scan anything. That includes:
  • Young Ace 2011-08 (containing 7o3x chapter 9)
  • good! Afternoon #17 (containing Nanika chapter 9 and 10)
  • Sho4 2011-08 and 2011-09 (containing Pokemon Special BW 9 and 10)
I already have Arpeggio of Blue Steel volume 3 and Ryuushika Ryuushika volume 2 scanned, so those will be released. Another group will give me 7o3x chapter 9 raws, so that's covered as well, though the entire magazine will have to wait.

A few days ago, I got in touch with Chinese group "幻兽之骑士团", which translates Arpeggio, Nanika, and other stuff (like Shingeki no Kyojin). I actually picked up Arpeggio because I read their scans; had they not picked it up I certainly wouldn't have known about this manga. They started scanning issues of YKO for Arpeggio, so I got in touch with them. It turns out that they were about to contact me for Nanika, which they picked up because they saw my scans. As a result, we're trading raws. If the schedule goes according to plan, I'll be caught up to Japan by the end of July.

In short, the schedule until the end of July looks like this:
  • Ryuushika Ryuushika 21
  • Kazumi 6
  • 7o3x 7
  • Arpeggio 9
  • 7o3x 8
  • Arpeggio 10-17 (with 7o3x 9 stuck in there when I get the raws)
  • Ryuushika Ryuushika volume 2
  • Arpeggio 18-19
  • Ryuushika Ryuushika 22
  • Arpeggio 20
  • Kazumi 7
  • Arpeggio 21-23
I might have enough time to stick a Kaibutsu Oujo chapter in there. I'm packing six items into a mega-shipment in early August, so Noririn and Pokemon Special will get slightly delayed by the latest item (7o3x volume 2, I believe).

Oriko Magica ch 7 [END]

And that's the ending to Oriko Magica. I thought that it was rather poignant, and Katsuu (the QCer) said that he cried.

Here's the batch to chapters 2 through 7. Nothing has been changed, so you don't need this if you already have all of the earlier chapters.

I can't say that it has been a pleasure working on this manga, but I certainly don't regret it. I hope that we've achieved our mission of providing fast and accurate scans for Oriko Magica, and I implore all of you to give Kazumi Magica a (second) try. Thanks for reading or even working on this manga.

Oriko Magica ch 6

I would be embarrassed if I broke my 3-day rule on a project in which I'm putting all of my effort. I really underestimated this manga.

When I think of Homura, I always think about those Grow flash RPG games. She has to do everything in the right order. If I was in her position, I would remember to make Kyouko adopt that green-haired loli before Mami finds out about the truth and goes crazy.

Oriko Magica ch 5

Shit gets real. Back when the anime was airing, I thought that something this would happen, but I guess that this manga has it covered.

Oriko Magica ch 4

The exciting conclusion of the battle between Mami and Kirika. I have to say that it was really clever.

Also, the party is understaffed. There's only two people working on it right now (me and another anon), which is just two less than the last volume, but those two were good editors. Remember when I said that this manga doesn't have a lot of "pictext"? Yeah, about that... I'm not good at redrawing, so if you have some spare time, there's 15 pages to redraw in chapters 5 and 6 (click "View all versions" in the image page to find another raw). I appreciate any help.

Oriko Magica vol 2 raw

Speaking of the devil, it's here already.

Oriko Magica vol 2 raw 1600p (MU)

Reupload (mf) (if) (fu)

7o3x vol 1 (ch 1v2 - 4v2)

Kadokawa decided to release volume 2 in August (one month ahead of the cycle), because one Pokemon Special volume, one Noririn volume, two Sho4 issues, two YA issues and one good Afternoon issue (update: and 3-4 Mudazumo chapters now) aren't enough for me during that month. But seriously, I thought that Kadokawa would wait for volume 3 to do something like this. I guess that they're really trying to push this series, because it does have a lot of potential to be popular.

This batch replaces some old pages, adds the new pages from the volume, and even adds a page from chapter 1 that I somehow missed the first time around. There are also typo and translation fixes.

Oriko Magica vol 2 final plans

Okay, so it's going to arrive either tomorrow or Wednesday. Raws will be uploaded in the afternoon on one of those days.

Pokemon Special BW ch 8

I guess that Sho4 skipped Castelia City, which is fine with me, since Burgh isn't interesting.

I've noticed that the balance has been dwindling (and was even negative before someone donated this morning). If the balance hits zero, I'll have to take your futures as collateral as per our agreement. And by futures, I mean future chapters of BW.

Oriko Magica vol 2 plans

We'll do the scanlation party thing again, but this time, I've ordered from Amazon, so it should arrive 2-4 days after it (officially) releases in Japan. In the meanwhile, the first 12 pages of chapter 4 have been ripped and translated on the site.
