Chapter 396: MF
We mistranslated Earl Shi as Shihaku in earlier chapters. Makes a lot more sense since he’s called Shi Ei.
So tomorrow we’ll:

Here we are yet again with an early leaked raw we got earlier today.
So, from this point on, I’m not entirely sure what day we’ll be able to get Kingdom out as we’re sent the raws anonymously.
Suffice to say, we’ll always release either the night we get our hands on a raw or the day after.
Worst case scenario is typically 2-3 days after the official magazine retail release on Thursdays (which would have been this upcoming Saturday the 5th for this chapter).
File server’s also down temporarily as we move hosts.
And…. we’re back!
So to address a few commonly asked questions about new releases, finishing off loose ends etc:
As it currently stands, we have yet to release:
For 1 and 2, these have been released by other groups already. We may release these some day but not any time in the foreseeable future.
For 3, we never found a complete set of raws for these. If anyone knows how to get them or where we could buy the omnibus online and ship it to Australia, we’d be happy to scanlate this.
For 4 and 5, there are no plans at all to scanlate these. Volume 26 would arguably not take much time but all text in the special volume is the same as in the normal volume 26 release. The kingdom guidebook contains a large amount of filler text and not much actual content. A lot of it is simply just strength, speed, special attribute numbers.
I’ve posted this a number of times now I think but:
We are not planning on doing anything except releasing 1 chapter a week of Kingdom for the foreseeable future. (except for point 3. above)
i.e., we are not taking up any new projects and will not be re-releasing volumes 1 and 2.
There are two reasons for this.
Rather outdated by now and undoubtedly an anachronism in fansubbing but perhaps still relevant in profit-free scanlation, I refer you to the not so new ethical code for digital fansubbing:
In essence, I largely don’t see much point in re-releasing work that’s already been done. The only reason we’re even considering doing volumes 1 and 2 etc. is simply due to consistency issues that often discourage new readers.
The other reason, and far larger a factor, is that we’re simply burnt out and busy with other things in life.
This post is far too long already so I might continue this on next weeks post.
