New Year's Release: Akagi, Defender of Planet Earth

And now for something completely different! A lot of you have been requesting that we do the Akagi Zawa Zawa Anthology for some time now, and while we don't have the whole thing for you, we do have the longest and (imo) best parody in the anthology, Akagi: Defender of Planet Earth by Tony Takezaki! Let me just clarify that there are no spoilers for the real Akagi manga in this one (you could even read it without having heard of Akagi before and not be spoiled on hardly anything), so don't worry about that. More on that in a minute, but first...

Thanks to Crump for stepping up to clean this. Typesetting by me. Mahjong Night will be Saturday the 7th at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST). I'm certain I'll be there this time, so no need to prepare for what might happen if I'm not.

Christmas Release: Akagi Chapter 191

Merry Christmas, everyone! Instead of opening presents and spending time with your family, why don't you sit down and read some Akagi? Sounds like a plan! Yeah, I was planning on making Pen-Chan Chapter 4 the christmas release, but we got a new typesetter for Akagi and he worked so hard to get this out before christmas so I figured it was for the best. He's still learning, so go easy on him!

Thanks to Tamburs for the typesetting, and to TA for the ever-consistent cleans. Mahjong Day will be this Saturday the 28th at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST). Again, if I'm not there, feel free to have it without me and just post your scores on the Mahjong Night Standings blog page.

Akagi Chapter 190

I guess we're just on a roll here with the christmas season, and we should be getting lots more done here very shortly, as we've got a couple new typesetter applicants. In this chapter, we see whether Washizu's riichi was a good idea, or if it was a horrible mistake!!

Thanks to Iapetus for the cleans, and to TA for stepping up to typeset in the absence of Kazuhiko. Mahjong Day went well, let's try for another this Saturday at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT).

Atsuize Pen-Chan Chapter 3

Yeah, I know, you're gonna ask why I'm doing Pen-Chan instead of Akagi or Kaiji. The answer is, I have a lot of free time and most of the rest of the group doesn't, so I'm doing Pen-Chan for the heck of it. That's why I asked for a side project anyway, to give me something to do when the rest of the group is busy. But yeah, here's another chapter, and in this one, Pen-Chan stumbles his way into a high-stakes match!

Thanks to Iapetus for the cleans. Mahjong Day will still be this Saturday at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST), but I may or may not be able to make it for more than an hour. If I don't show up, have it anyway and just leave the scores on the Mahjong Night Standings blog page. We are also in desperate need of a new typesetter or two, so please oh please contact me at shinichiakiyama@hotmail.com to apply!!

Atsuize Pen-Chan Chapter 2

Yeah, here's a little something to tide you over while we look for a new typesetter (which you can apply to be by emailing me at shinichiakiyama@hotmail.com). It's the second chapter of Pen-Chan, and it's a pretty sweet one. I'll try and get some more chapters of this one out, as well.

Thanks to Iapetus for the cleans, I typeset this one myself. Mahjong Night will be this Saturday at the usual time, but I might not be able to make it, I don't know yet.

Penguin71

I've got a confession to make. As you guys can tell, releases of Kaiji have been erratic and sparse, to put it kindly. In light of this, I've decided to leave FKMTkrazy. I've thought about it for while, and thought in the end it that it simply wasn't fair to everyone. For FKMTkrazy to wait for me to do my share of the work and for readers of Kaiji to have to suffer from my inactivity.

It's been a fun ride. Approximately a year. Hundreds of chapters, thousands of pages, and tens of thousands of words. I learned a lot about how groups operate, how much effort was put into each chapter, and how difficult Mahjong is. But all good things must come to an end. There isn't much else to say. I'm a Fukumoto fan, through and through, just as you guys are, and I'll always be following this group and the releases. I'll simply be part of the audience instead of the actors this time.

I want to give a final thanks to FKMTkrazy for all they've done for me. I was a complete amateur when I first joined (probably through a fluke, really), but they gave me a chance, and that's a lot more than most groups would do. It was fun chatting with everything behind the scenes and playing Mahjong when I could. A special mention goes out to Sonickrazy, for keeping us all together and for having to deal with my sporadic work.

Of course, I also want to show my gratitude to the readers for following all throughout this time. My typesetting work isn't the greatest and my blogs aren't the most interesting, but I'm grateful for everyone who stuck through it.

さようなら、みんな.

Kazuya-Hen Chapter 28-30

Hey guys. After a long hiatus, we're back with the last three chapters of Volume 3 of Kazuya-Hen! The onus on the delay is entirely mine, so please continue to appreciate the efforts of the others on the FKMTkrazy. Js06 for the translations, Biggums for the cleans, and Sonickrazy for the proofreading.

Note from Sonickrazy: We are also looking for a new typesetter, please email me at shinichiakiyama@hotmail.com if you're interested in learning how. Mahjong day is still on for tomorrow.

Akagi Chapter 189

Man, what a terrible time to have to delay the next chapter due to final exams! They're not over yet, but this is the first chance Kazuhiko has had in a long time to get any manga chapters done, and I'm very grateful he didn't just pass out from being overworked. But yes, the cliffhanger will be resolved in this chapter, wherein we see if Yasuoka truly is willing to betray a man he has known for 6 whole years!

Thanks to TA for the fantastic cleans, and to Kazuhiko for the stupendous typesetting. NOTE: I will be streaming the last chapter of the Ten PS2 game, the Akagi Persuasion Arc, this Friday at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST). It's going to be the last stream I do for a month, so I hope you all come and see me as I attempt to voice-act all the parts myself. Mahjong Night will also be this Saturday at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST), as usual.
