I’d write something here but I have a snowboard to wax and annual leave to use.

Cheerio~

Kingdom Chapter 394

We mistranslated Earl Shi as Shihaku in earlier chapters. Makes a lot more sense since he’s called Shi Ei.

So tomorrow we’ll:

  • v2 the last volume of chapters to correct that along with the typos in c393.
  • Release volume 33′s omake (extra / bonus pages) from the tankoubon
  • Update the server with volume 35 and 36 PSDs and batch zips

In the mean time, here’s this week’s chapter.

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.

Kingdom Chapter 392

So an anonymous benefactor sent us an email with a pretty high quality raw for 392 a couple hours ago so here it is a few days early!

Kingdom Chapter 390

And…. we’re back!

Chapter 390: MF | Read Online


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:

  1. Volumes 1 and 2 of the manga
  2. 2 extra chapters from the 2nd Kingdom Omnibus
  3. 2 extra chapters from the 1st Kingdom Omnibus
  4. Volume 26 that was redrawn by 1000+ artists
  5. The Kingdom Guidebook with character stats etc.

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:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com.au/feature/2003-06-08/2

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.

Amazing how much free time you have scanlating one chapter a week… and how much of that free time you spend procrastinating.

v2 edit: Added a bunch of pixels that are meant to be birds (sadly, actually relevant).

Might need more than one hand soon to count the number of single chapter releases we’ve done o.o

Also, looks like we’ll be releasing either Saturday or Sunday from now on depending on whether raws on share are released on Friday or Saturday.

Kingdom Chapter 386-387

Probably the last multiple chapter release since we’ve pretty much caught up with the raws.

We’ll be releasing chapters from share raws unless we find a fast enough source that hasn’t been mangled. I think these tend to come out around Friday or Saturday and we’ll be releasing them as soon as we spot them on share.

Also, since a lot of people always ask in the comments, From the FAQ:

We won’t be considering scanlating another manga for a very long time. We will only be releasing Kingdom weekly while we pursue other projects in life.

Kingdom has taken up a far larger amount of time in the week than we first planned or allocated for it and we have a large backlog of projects unrelated to manga that were put on hold to allow us to push out 35 volumes over the course of a 1 and a 1/4 years.
