Kingdom Chapter 431 and Drafts

So, we’ve been thinking about this for a while and finally gotten off our asses to do it. We’ll be releasing a draft each chapter a few hours after the Chinese raw comes out based on that and re-releasing a HQ version off Japanese raws after a week (as normal). So a few things to note.

  • We’re translating from Chinese to English for these drafts so it may be slightly inaccurate and will be TLC’d on the HQ version from the Japanese raw.
  • I’ll simply be updating these posts with the HQ version when it comes out rather than making a new one all the time.
  • You can tell it’s a draft because the raws look like ass, it’s marked as v0 on batoto and we also helpfully included this awesome watermark! Seriously… anyone who watermarks manga deserves to be shot.
  • If you see any errors (grammar etc.) you can leave them here in the comments and we’ll fix them in the HQ release.
  • Still looking for a raw provider. E-mail us if you can help out. We can offer you many turnips.

    I weep for the watermarks…
    But to get it early is also very tempting >.<

  5. Love this, i just can’t wait to read kingdom as fast as possible😄
    The temptation when a new chapter comes out… ughhh… Even if it’s not top notch i’d still read it.

    Thx as always, and thx for this new policy🙂

  6. mac

    Even if you translate it while sitting on the toilet with diarrhea, i’ll still read yours and not the other one. HQ or no HQ, i’m more interested in the story anyway.

  8. You are doing God’s work. Umbasa.

    There’s no Japanese raw guys… so we’ll translate from Chinese. xD You make it sound so easy ! Thanks a lot and congrats again for your great work. I’m glad the quick translations will also be your work.

  31. Algarban

    Thanks!! I think its a great idea, we can see the story first and later see the changes in quality. Nice idea and great work!

  32. Keep Calm and Flame On


    Thank you for doing this, FINALLY! *Two Thumbs Up* (LQ then HQ.) Fuck those so called “HQ aficionado” who claim their eyes accept nothing less than perfection. Fuck that! Shiiiieeet, even TF uses the over-filtered LQ and tell these mofos that it’s HQ, they wouldn’t even know the fucking difference LMAO. HQ aficionado my rosy smelling ass! (You know who they REALLY are if you read my posts a few months back.)

    All we care about is the STORY and good translation. With this, no more unbearable sloppy 3rd rate rush job, which we endured anyway because we love Kingdom that much we just can’t wait! We do always comeback to read TF’s work of course. But, for better translation to enjoy the STORY more, not for the ART! Fuck that shit! With all due respect to Hara Yasuhisa, he ain’t Monet or Degas or Inoue Takehiko. No, Hara Sensei’s genius is his STORYTELLING. This is where Kingdom outshines ALL other mangas out there. If someone tells you they’re HYPED over Kingdom due to its ART, then they’re lying out of their ass, and I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I want to sell you LOL!

    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU TF for your decision of doing fast LQ!!!

    (To the operators of shameless websites and to the mental masturbator I’ve mentioned in my old post: guess which finger I’m holding up now! LOL!)

  33. makfresh22

    Thanks guys!!!!…would read the HQ scans when they’re released…..really appreciate all your hard work.

  34. Gnama

    Thank you !


    Well your “bad” version is still a lot better than other translations. I normally read the chapters quite often, because i just can’t resist the temptation to read the chapter as fast as possible.
    But sometimes i have the moments, where i think, that the translation doesn’t make sense or ist just plain stupid. Then your version comes out and everything is fine😀

    So i’m rly thankful that you keep up the quality in your translation🙂

  36. notsoop

    re-read it again and again!!!!!!

  37. Oo

    Mou Bu has yet to make his appearance.
