Akagi Chapter 221

Happy new year! This chapter was released at exactly 12:00 AM, January 1st 2015 (in MST), so think of it as our new year's resolution to get more chapters to you... or something. I dunno. Here's a chapter.

Thanks to Tambur for the typesetting and to Crump and TA for the cleans! I will be streaming even more of Tetsuya PS2 this Friday the 2nd at 2:00 PM PST (21:00 GMT), and Mahjong Night will be the following day at 3:00 PM PST (22:00 GMT) on the IRC.

Akagi Chapter 220

So Tambur gave you his Christmas present, now it's time for mine! Except Tambur also worked on this one. God, he's so motivated. But anyway yeah it's been forever since I did any translating, maybe I'll do some more here soon.

Thanks to Tambur for the typesetting, and to TA and Biggums for the cleans! I'll be streaming Tetsuya PS2 tomorrow at 2:00 PM PST (21:00 GMT), and Mahjong Night will be on the IRC the following day at 3:00 PM PST (22:00 GMT).

The New Kurosawa Chapter 5

I'm going to try and keep this on a weekly schedule as much as possible. I'm very fond of weekly releases. So unless something goes wrong or we catch up to our translations, I'll try to get them out every Tuesday. When possible, we will sprinkle in other updates while maintaining our weekly schedule.

Props go out to Denji for the great translations, myself for proofreading and typesetting and Crump Biggums for cleaning up a storm!

Akagi Chapter 219

Yeah, I've been kinda busy with work (and maybe a bit distracted by my new shiny Wii U) lately and haven't been translating very much. But here's the next chapter of Akagi, in which very little happens! Thanks to TA and Biggums for the cleans and to Tambur for the typesetting!

I will not be streaming this Friday, it's Halloween. Mahjong Night is this Saturday at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT) as usual.

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 67 & 68

Yeah, it's a double release! I want to try and get a more steady stream going rather than just releasing a bunch of batch releases, but I felt these two chapters had to be released together so the ending of 67 would be explained a bit.

Thanks to Tambur and Jatelion for the cleans, and to Tambur for the typesetting! I will be streaming Gantz PS2 tomorrow at slightly after 2:00 PM PDT (22:00 GMT), and mahjong night will be this Saturday at 3:00 PM PDT (23:00 GMT).

Akagi Chapter 218

Yep, back with more Akagi. I don't think it would be right to just pretend the discussion in the comments last post didn't happen, so I guess I'll address it. The reason why I implied I wanted to focus on Akagi more than Kaiji is for several reasons, but most importantly because I just feel like Akagi is a better read per-chapter at the moment. Those of you who don't get mahjong probably can't see how, but I feel that, even though both series are going at roughly the same pace at the moment, Kaiji is just focusing solely on hitting home one idea really really hard while managing to throw hooks in an the end, while in Akagi there's a new development every chapter that they analyze a ton.

But that said, putting aside what I would LIKE to do, the reality is that we have quite a few kaiji cleans just laying around whereas we just ran through all of the available cleans for Akagi. So in the end I'll probably wind up catching up to the cleans we have for Kaiji, anyway. So I anticipate you'll see more Kaiji than Akagi for a while.

Now then, this chapter was brought to you by the lovely team of TA and Tambur. Mahjong night will be saturday at 3:00 PM PDT (23:00 GMT). I may or may not be streaming this Friday at 2:00 PM PDT (22:00 GMT), but if I am, it will be the last stream of Gantz PS2.

Kazuya-Hen Chapter 66

Oh, Kaiji, I couldn't keep you dropped for long. Yeah, I guess I'm getting back into a rhythm, so since it looks like nobody picked it up once we dropped it (I was seriously convinced someone would) I'm gonna be doing a chapter every now and then. I don't want to neglect Akagi when we're so close to catching up, but then again, we're really close to catching up with Kaiji as well. I dunno, I'll do what I can, and we're certainly still open for it if anyone wants to translate for us.

Thanks to Tambur and Jatelion for the cleans on this one, and to Tambur again for the typesetting. Mahjong Night will be this afternoon/evening at 3:00 PM PDT (22:00 GMT). I'll let you know if I can stream again this friday, I find out on tuesday.

Akagi Chapters 216 & 217

Yes, a double release! I actually got a little bit ahead of Tambur it looks like. But I may drop back down behind him because my workweek is looking very rough this week. So rough in fact that I will not be able to stream this Friday, I am working all day that day. I'd do it sunday instead, but I tried that before and nobody came :(

But anyway, here's the next two chapters of Akagi, in which the round starts at last! Thanks to TA for the cleans as always, and to Tambur for the typesetting, as always! Mahjong night will be this saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT).

The New Kurosawa Chapter 2 + Anti-Marijuana Oneshot

Yep, here's chapter 2. I guess this post is a kind of "All hail our new translating God, Denji" post, since I also have for you an anti-drug FKMT oneshot that was published on a government website fairly recently that Denji translated and edited all on his own.

Thanks to Denji for the translations on both, and to Crump and Tambur for the fine editing job on the Kurosawa chapter. I will not be streaming today, I feel too sick still. Mahjong night will be tomorrow at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT).

The New Kurosawa Chapter 1

Yes! Thanks to Denji, our new translator, we now have for you the first chapter of The New Kurosawa! (I refuse to call it Shin Kurosawa, Shin can mean too many other things to english speakers) I'm feeling a bit under the weather at the moment so I really don't have the energy to write a full in depth blog post, but I'll do my best.

Thanks to our new translator Denji for the translations, to Crump for the awesome cleans, and to Tambur for the typesetting! I proofread this one a bit, but Denji did most of the work.

Akagi Chapter 214

Yes, two chapters of Akagi right around the 26th of September! If you don't get the significance of September 26th, go read Ten all the way through and it'll make sense. But yeah, we had a good time recognizing that special day yesterday, even if I couldn't make it all the way through myself and had to play a recording of the final arc of Ten PS2. I'm running on 2 hours of sleep right now, but that shouldn't stop me from bringing you this next exciting installment of Akagi!

Also, we got a new translator fairly recently who offered to do a FKMT series for us (not Kaiji), so be on the lookout for new chapters of a certain series about another long-nosed protagonist very shortly!

Thanks to TA for the cleans and to Tambur for the typesetting! Stream day and Mahjong day are on Friday and Saturday at the usual times (22:00 GMT and 23:00 GMT).

So I may or may not be getting into some kind of groove here. We'll see. But either way, Akagi is back, and in this chapter, Akagi describes his thoughts after coming back from the dead, and instills a deathly fear in Washizu!

Thanks to TA for the faithful cleans in our absence, and to Tambur for the quick typesetting job! Tomorrow's the big day, Akagi's 15th Kinichi, so I'm gonna be doing a 24-hour stream here starting at 15:00 GMT (8:00 AM PST)!

Washizu Chapters 9 & 10

We're alive! Let me just get it out of the way first and foremost: we have officially (but possibly temporarily) DROPPED Kazuya-hen and will be leaving it to the kind anonymous poster in the previous post's comments section. The reason for this is because I am the only translator at FKMTkrazy, and while I thought I could do it, it turns out keeping up with 2 projects at once was too much for me since I now have a job that is very taxing on me. This is also an open message to the aforementioned anonymous poster: if you would like to become a translator for us instead of doing everything yourself, you are more than welcome, as our cleaners and typesetters are more than capable of handling Kaiji if we get another translator, and do not want to stop working on Kaiji. We also have raws for Kazuya-Hen v10-13, so do message me if you want them, even if you're not willing to join us.

Now that that's out of the way and our Kaiji readers have been appeased (lol as if), our grand comeback is with a brand-new double release of Washizu-Enma no Tohai! Now some of you may be ticked that this is not Akagi OR Kaiji, but we did say that we'd be doing this back when we released Chapter 7 of Washizu. This is the last Washizu we'll be doing for a while, it'll be back to Akagi after this. No matter how unmotivated I get, I REFUSE to drop Akagi, I've pumped so much thought into that manga and I'd hate to have someone else pick it up.

Speaking of Akagi, I will be doing a 24-hour stream (all-night vigil or 24-hour mahjong war, whichever you prefer) for Akagi's 15th Kinichi (memorial day) starting on Friday September 26th at 15:00 GMT (8:00 AM PDT) and going until the same time the following day. Yes, really! Here's the schedule for it, and here's the link to the stream! And now... here's the chapters!

After a long delay (due to me getting a job and to me focusing on subbing the Legendary Gambler Tetsuya 2 game), we have for you chapter 8 of Washizu! In this chapter, a new opponent presents himself to Washizu! And I daresay, he's even more evil than our beloved consulting firm chairman!

Thanks a ton to Crump and Tambur for tackling this beast! I may or may not be streaming something this friday, but we will be having a mahjong night this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST). Also, Legendary Gambler Tetsuya 2 is fully subbed and uploaded to my youtube account! You can see the full playthrough with gameplay and commentary here, or just the subbed cutscenes here.

Washizu: Enma no Tohai Chapter 7

"WHAT!? HOW CAN YOU BE TRANSLATING WASHIZU WHEN THERE'S SO MUCH KAIJI AND AKAGI AND KUROSAWA TO DO?! HAVE YOU GONE MAD?!" I hear you exclaim. Yes, probably nobody will be happy with this release, but I promise you we won't be translating this for long, it'll be a few chapters then right back to Akagi. There's a reason we're doing this, but I'll let you speculate on what that reason is. Also, if anyone from Anonymous Delivers is reading this, sorry if you were about to release this chapter yourselves or something, but you were taking so long that I decided we had to put out some more chapters ourselves. We'll be done with it for a while after a few chapters, so you can pick up where we left off if you so choose.

Thanks to Crump for stepping up to clean this, and to Tambur for doing his nice quick typesetting as usual. There will be a mahjong night this Saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

Also, I now have the means with which to translate the second Legendary Gambler Tetsuya video game, which is essentially a second season of the Anime (full voice acting, with many animated sequences). I will be streaming it every Friday at 21:00 GMT for a few weeks here. For more info, see here.

And we're back with more of our most popular series (har dee har), Pen-Chan! It's a shame that, judging by the downloads, this is actually the least popular series we've done; it's super funny. I guess people just don't like comedy that much in their fkmt mangos. Anyway, in this chapter, Pen-Chan loses yet again, this time with some major repercussions!

Anyway, it's been a while since we've had a triple release... we're trying to get back up to speed, so hopefully this won't be the last.

"The Savior will be selected at random, such that only God could know who it would be. As fate decides!"

Hey, it's another chapter where nothing much happens! Kaiji continues to not see how desperate a situation Mitsuyama was in, Mitsuyama continues to explain why he had to do what he did, and the game continues on to the 12th round where the fateful, ever-important Savior role is given to... MARIO! How will he deal with this responsibility, and will Mitsuyama's supposed actions last round affect him? Find out next time!

And as you know, I went to Sakura-Con last week as Kazuya, spending the whole day in the Mahjong Room. I was a bit disappointed that nobody knew who I was, but not really all that surprised. I don't have any pictures from at the con, just some that I had taken before. Below the cut is some pictures of my cosplay. NOTE: I will be the first to say that it is not a GOOD cosplay, it was really something I just threw together with stuff I could find on Amazon for less than $30. I wasn't about to go out and buy a pinstripe suit, so I just got a costume suit and a floral dress shirt. But anyway, here it is.

I really should've had this up a week ago, but I just wasn't up to writing anything and dropped the ball. But anyway, in this chapter, can Mitsuyama explain without words what happened in the previous round? Or will this misunderstanding stay?!

Thanks to Crump for the great cleans, and to Tambur for the awesome typesetting! There will be a mahjong night this saturday at 22:00 GMT (3:00 PM PDT) on the IRC. I will not be there, but please have it without me here: http://tenhou.net/0/?C18901858

Why won't I be there, you ask? Well, I'll be cosplaying our very own Kazuya Hyoudou at Sakura-con this Friday and Saturday in the Mahjong Room! If you're going, please feel free to stop by the mahjong room and talk to me and Crump Biggums!

And not too long (for us, at least...) after that dreadful cliffhanger last chapter, we have for you the next two chapters of Akagi! For these chapters, I wanted to do something different from what is usually done and have both chapters in the same rar, without even so much as a credits page separating them. Why? Well, you'll see.

Thanks to TA and Jatelion for the stellar cleans, and to Kazuhiko for not only doing a quick typesetting job, but doing his damnedest to make the typesetting something special!

3rd Anniversary Release: Hopeless Kacchan's Love Story

It's been three years, already? Well, there's been blank points where we didn't do anything, so I guess it's not like we've been working 3 years straight, but still, in terms of time it has been 3 years. And as such, here's something that absolutely nobody was expecting, a FKMT one-shot that wasn't even on the last poll for a side project! It was one of his very first works, and apparently it was the first one to earn him an award. It was sent to me to scan by Denji on Batoto, so thanks a lot to him! This little oneshot is super cute, I think you'll all like it. And it's not your standard love story, either!

Rather than doing some lame bait and switch joke, I figured just releasing a few new parody shorts of Akagi would be better, and probably better appreciated as well. The theme for these chapters isssss... shorts done by the mangaka of other mahjong/gambling manga! That's right, we have for you chapters done by Owada Hideki (author of Legend of Koizumi/Mudazumo Naki no Kaikaku), Shinobu Kaitani (author of One Outs and Liar Game), and Maeda Jirou (author of HERO)! They're all super short, though, the one we did last time was literally 5 times longer than any other manga in the collection. Let's get to it!

Thanks to Biggums for the quick cleans, and to Tambur for the impeccable typesetting! Maybe there will be something tomorrow for our anniversary as well? I sure hope we didn't forget!!

Akagi Chapter 197

A new chapter of Akagi is at last upon us! In this nail-biting chapter, Washizu is torn between playing the 3-sou and 9-pin, which are both extremely dangerous, but extremely rewarding! But one of them has to pass... one of them is the right answer! But which?!?!

This chapter is the debut of our newest cleaner, Jatelion! He's done some of the best cleans I've ever seen, I actually had to tell him to lower the quality of his cleans a bit to get them out faster. A third of this chapter was also done by Iapetus, who is now back on the scene after recovering from his ailments. Typeset by the ever-available Tambur.

There will be a mahjong night next Saturday at 22:00 GMT, or 3:00 PM PDT. Also, our anniversary will be on the 2nd of April! I sure hope we remembered to do something for it.

Kazuya-Hen Chapter 45

Just a single chapter this time. In this chapter, Kazuya and Kaiji argue some more! Thanks to Tambur for the typesetting and cleaning, and to Biggums for the redraws!

I'll be streaming Hanafuda for real this week on Friday. I'll be changing the time due to daylight savings, so it'll be at 1:00 PM PDT, which is still 20:00 GMT. There will be a mahjong night this Saturday at 3:00 PM PDT, which is now 22:00 GMT. I know they're not the same adjustments, but I decided that moving the stream later works better for me, and keeping the mahjong night earlier probably works better for our Europeans. Sorry if this causes any confusion!

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 43 & 44

Chapters 43 and 44 of Kazuya-Hen are now up! In these chapters, Kaiji and Kazuya argue! As a side note, Akagi 197 is going to be quite a while yet, Iapetus came down with pneumonia so he has not been able to clean. I think we'll have 4 chapters or something ready at once when we do get back on track, though.

Thanks to Crump for the cleans, and to Tambur for the typesetting! I will be teaching you how to play Hanafuda (and maybe Go as well) on stream this Friday at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST), and there will be a Mahjong Night this Saturday at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 41 & 42

After a very eventful game day, we have for you the next 2 chapters of Kazuya-Hen!

Thanks to Tambur for the ever-speedy typesetting, and to Crump for the ever-reliable redrawing. I'll be streaming more of Akko de Pon! Ikasama Hourouki this Friday at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST) and we will be having a mahjong night the following day, Saturday at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST)

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 39 & 40

And to finish out the volume, we have for you Chapters 39 and 40 of Kazuya-Hen! In these chapters, Kazuya works out why the Asian Three are so set on clearing the game! Will he find a way to counter it?

Thanks to Crump for the speedy cleans and to Tambur for the fantastic typesetting! I will be (actually!) streaming more of the mahjong game about cheating, Akko de Pon! Ikasama Hourouki, this Friday at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST).

Special Announcement: Do you like gambling manga? Of course you do. And since you do, you will most likely enjoy Seikimatsu Bakuroden Saga, a movie based on the manga of the same name. I helped to quality check it, and if Hokuto no Gun releases the second movie and/or the manga I will more than likely be helping with that as well. There's only two gambles in the movie, the first of which is Cee-Lo or Chinchirorin, which was also in Season 2 of Kaiji! The other is Tehonbiki, which is organized similar to Cho Han from Akagi, but it's basically Roulette with cards, only with a complex betting system and where the dealer (or "banker") directly influences the outcome. Check it out!

Especially Special Announcement: Restricted Rock-Paper-Scissors (or "Restricted RPS" or "Rippus") has undergone quite a few changes since our last beta testing session, it's even seen a greenlight on Steam! As such, we should be having another Beta Testing session on Saturday, March 1st, at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST) on the IRC. Be there!

Kazuya-Hen Chapter 38

I actually should have had this chapter up days and days ago, but I recently discovered Dangan Ronpa and have been obsessed with it for the past 4-5 days. I tend to get super, super obsessed with things that I'm interested in, that's probably part of the reason I've been able to keep an interest in FKMT for so long. But it's not like I would've made the process that much faster by putting up this chapter when I was supposed to, anyway, the cleans for the next chapters aren't ready, still.

That aside, thanks to Crump for the cleans and to Tambur for the super-fast typsetting. Negative thanks to me for sitting on this for so long. I'll be streaming that mahjong game about cheating again this Friday at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST), and there will be a mahjong night the following day, Saturday, at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

Akagi Chapter 196

Inb4 the inevitable "why are you releasing Akagi, I want more Kaiji, it's gotten so goooood" comments. I'm aware that we've just hit the midpoint of the Kazuya-Hen series, and we will definitely be releasing more chapters very soon, but I'm not going to be stopping Akagi this time, unlike what we did for DKaiji when it got to its midpoint. Partially because we have so many cleaners right now and it'd be a shame just to not take advantage of their cleans, and also because Akagi is about to get really good really fast.

That said, thanks to Tambur for the ridiculous typesetting, and to TA for the crazy cleans. I will be streaming more of Akko de Pon! Ikasama Hourouki next Friday at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST), and we will be having a mahjong night tomorrow at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST).

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 36 & 37

Ain't no gettin' off this train we on! Yeah, 2 more chapters of Kazuya-Hen in 2 days, not sure if this streak is gonna keep up, but it's fun while it's lasting. Thanks again to Tambur for the light-speed typesetting, and to Crump for the shockingly speedy cleans.

I will be streaming more of the mahjong game about cheating, Akko de Pon! Ikasama Hourouki, tomorrow at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST). There will be a mahjong day the following day, Saturday, at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST) on the IRC.

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 33-35

2 Days later, and we have THREE new chapters of Kazuya-Hen for you!! I'm actually genuinely surprised, myself! This is all thanks to Tambur for speeding through the chapters while not cutting any corners in his typesetting, motivating me and Crump to work ahead of him. Seriously, you would probably not be seeing these chapters for a month if not for him. I foresee a month with lots of releases!

Thanks to Crump for the cleaning, and I already gave a massive thanks to Tambur. I would tell you that I'm going to be streaming a mahjong game about cheating this Friday, and that there will be a mahjong day this Saturday, but I'm sure there will be another release between now and then anyway. Oh, I guess I told you anyway.

Kazuya-Hen Chapters 31 & 32

After a long two-month absence, Kazuya-Hen is back with the conclusion of Mario's backstory! Who actually killed José, and why is his money in Mario and Antonio's house?! All these answers and more in Kazuya-Hen 31 and 32!

Thanks to Biggums for cleaning, and to Tambur for a very, very quick typesetting job. Translated by me, instead of js06.

Akagi Chapter 195

And just two days later, we have 195 for you! In this chapter, Washizu and Akagi face off in a one-on-one Kendo match with real swords! Metaphorically, of course.

Thanks to TA for the cleans, and to Tambur for the quick typesetting job! I will be streaming some more of the cheating mahjong game, Akko de Pon, this Friday the 14th at 20:00 GMT (12:00 PM PST). There will be a Mahjong Night the following day, Saturday the 15th, at 23:00 GMT (3:00 PM PST) on the IRC.
