Akagi Chapter 290 & 291

We've kept you waiting long enough! At last, we're putting out some more Akagi chapters, and two of them at that! I know it's been a while but believe it or not we're basically already caught up, just waiting on the shipment of the magazine with the next chapter. As a reminder, you can help us get these chapters out by donating in the sidebar! Magazine raws are expensive to ship to the US!

As always, thanks to Tambur for the typesetting and to Crump for the cleans.

Akagi 285, Kaiji 122, and Kurosawa 52

WE ARE BACK!! And since we're back after the longest hiatus we've ever had, I'm gonna do something I've never done before and release 3 chapters of 3 different series at the same time!!!

This triple release is all thanks to a triple threat of typesetters all making their returns today! Akagi is brought to you by Tambur, who finally recovered from his medical problems and is getting readjusted to typesetting again. Kaiji is brought to you by Penchan, who has returned from a long vacation and was willing to pick up the slack for Tambur, not knowing that he would be making his return today! And like last time, Kurosawa is brought to you by edek437, who got this chapter done before I even knew what hit me!

And all three, that's right ALL THREE of these chapters were cleaned by Crump Biggums, who is truly the unsung hero of this group, working tirelessly throughout the break to clean as many chapters as he could for our eventual return! Thanks so much to everyone, including Denji for making the Kurosawa blog post below and of course translating the chapter!! Good to be back!

FKMTkrazy Mahjong Tournament #2

UPDATE: DUE TO AN IMPORTANT EVENT IN MY LIFE ON FRIDAY THIS TOURNAMENT HAS BEEN MOVED TO FRIDAY THE 17th THROUGH SATURDAY THE 18th!! PLEASE ADJUST YOUR AVAILABILITY ACCORDINGLY! THE  DEADLINE FOR SIGNUPS WILL ALSO BE MOVED TO FRIDAY THE 10th!

So in light of our inability to release any chapters at the moment I decided now would be a good time to start the initial stages of our second mahjong tournament! And once again, the prize is a volume of a manga of your choice, translated by yours truly in a timely fashion! However, this time will be a bit different. As I do not have time to translate very many series at once, and considering that Mukoubuchi has already gone well past the 1 volume I promised to translate after last tournament, I will be willing to stop doing Mukoubuchi for a while to translate the manga you choose... IF you can beat me in the tournament!

However, as I kind of wanna keep doing Mukoubuchi, I don't want to just start from the bottom. If you want to win the prize, you'll have to earn the chance to take Mukoubuchi away from me for a while! The chance to win the aforementioned prize will only be given to the three that place the highest in the initial tournament bracket. Those three will then move on to the Championship Round, where they will play against me in a multiple-hanchan finale, where the winner gets the manga of their choice translated! And naturally, I'll be picking mukoubuchi if I win.

One Poker Hen 121

After a bit of last-minute scrambling, we present to you chapter 121 of Kaiji!! Apologies for the delay, but it couldn't be helped as Tambur had a medical emergency this Tuesday and could not typeset the chapter on time, which is also why we did not have a Kurosawa chapter this week. Luckily for us, Kazuhiko the all-star typesetter who typesets for happyscans and Hokuto no Gun was willing to take time out of his busy schedule to fill in for him this chapter! I can't give you anything certain for our release schedule at this point but Tambur assures me that his condition is not critical and he will be able to typeset some more in a week or two.

Thanks so much to Kazuhiko for filling in for typesetting this time, and to Crump for continuing to provide us with cleans!

NO KAIJI TODAY

This time Tambur has medical issues so he can't typeset the chapter for today, and probably not anything else this week. I'm looking into getting another typesetter for the time being but for now here's a picture of a cute stray dog:

This one is called Blues of a Second Son, and it's about a man estranged from his family who's fallen on hard times and needs to ask them for money so he can go on a honeymoon with his fiancee to Guam. Can he reconnect after leaving his family for 10 years?

Akagi Chapter 282

We made it! We've finally caught up to Akagi! Thanks a lot to everyone who made this possible, including all our staff over the years and everyone who donated for the new magazine issues! Now that we've caught up, we will unfortunately have to fall back to a monthly schedule as new chapters of Akagi are only released once a month. In addition, due to time constraints of shipping to the US, it will probably take us more than a full week after the chapter comes out in Japan to get it, scan it, translate it and edit it. But rest assured that we will do our best to get the new chapters out as soon as possible!

That said, this is all only possible if we receive your continued support through donations. Initially I estimated that we would need $25 per chapter, but that turns out to be a naive underestimation. For the costs of shipping, the price of the magazine, and making it all worth our while, we are going to need $35 per chapter to continue releases past this point. We currently have enough to make it one more month before we will run out. We only need $35 per month to keep doing this, so any amount you can afford to give will help! Please feel free to donate using the button on the side bar of the page! Thank you so much!!

This chapter was made possible thanks to the efforts of Tambur, Crump, and myself. But let us not forget those who helped get us to this point! It all started with translations by Sasayaki Yako, who inspired me to try to translate after they left! Soon after, it was Crump who came to help clean, and Kazuhiko who emerged to typeset! This formed our core group of 3, but when some of us were unable to perform our roles, Deakachu, Doc, Leoho, Smokey, Skutieos, TA, Jatelion, pokpokpokel and Iapetus all helped to fill in! Penguin71 helped to carry the group through tough times, and it was Tambur who revived the group in its darkest hour with weekly releases! Many thanks to all of these people for helping me achieve my dream of half a decade to see Akagi fully available for english readers!!
