Well, sad days. I can’t say we didn’t see something like this coming as Kingdom is now popular enough to attract a sizable audience which means it’s now worth some significant amount of ad revenue.
First of all, addressing some concerns and views from the comments.
We will continue to scanlate Kingdom and catch up to the Japanese raws.
We will not be skipping chapters. There will be the normal 3 chapters on Sunday (365-367).
We will not be pursuing a joint with the people releasing Kingdom on Mangajoy / Mangadoom. It is likely impossible to settle as:
- We were offered money by one of the owners of these sites back in January and March so long as we released to their websites first.
- Scanlation is already morally grey enough without tying yourself to the wallet of an online reader that’s out to make an easy buck.
- The pirate and hacker in me shudders at the thought of a website having “exclusive” pirated content.
To those of you that refrained from reading Mangajoys releases or will reread ours: Thank you for your dedication, I hope we can live up to your expectations and we’ll always be striving to release the highest quality chapters we can as fast as possible.

Oops, minor error on page 12 of Chapter 364, the left bubble in the middle panel should say hundreds of thousands, not tens of thousands, we’ll release the V2 with the next batch of chapters.
On to Volume 34! The end is in sight! (somewhat?)
On a completely random and unrelated note.
So I bought a bunch of parts and made my own ODAC. Sadly, being the cheap asian that I am, i never bought the housing for it… but I now have a shoebox that puts out a really clean audio analog signal!

Oh god, I remember now why we used to take longer redrawing…
Edit: I just remembered I forgot to include the credit page which we’ll just chuck into chapter 352 on Sunday.
On that note, please also welcome our new cleaners, BlaZin and Yunya! Woo, less work for me!

Volume 32 down!
From here on, It’s likely we won’t always be able to stick to 5 chapters a week but we’ll give it our best shot starting with the normal 2 chapters next Thursday.

The next release will be on Sunday the 23rd and finish off the current volume (chapters 347-349) as we’ll be spending the week prepping the next bunch of raws…
or maybe just procrastinating and playing games every day.
