Chapter 447: MF | Read Online
Hi all, just an announcement about how we’re going to go about releasing Kingdom chapters from here onwards.
First off, we’re only going to be releasing chapters from the earliest raws that meet a certain standard of quality.
Generally, this means ALL Share raws and SOME early Chinese raws.
For example: the Current Chapter – 446 (Tieba Link) meets this standard.
This means that we really should have released this weeks chapter off these Chinese raws already but for this week only, we decided to just use Share raws.
The reason for this is basically due how difficult it is to clean out old LQ releases from various manga aggregator sites outside of Batoto. A large number of readers don’t use Batoto at all and for me personally, this standard of quality (Mangafox Link) is simply not acceptable. Even if the majority of those readers don’t care about the quality at all, it matters a lot to me.
If we DO release a chapter off a Chinese raw that meets our standard of quality, we will still release another HQ version off the Japanese Share raws simply due to them not being completely up to scratch e.g. this page appears to have been leveled too far as well as to re-check and fix mistranslations due to the double translation from Japanese to Chinese to English.
For Chapter 446 for this week, we’re still waiting on a Japanese Share raw. Not quite sure why it isn’t out yet but hopefully it should be out tomorrow.
edit: added chapter release to this post so that people hopefully actually read this…

Most likely reverting to using Japanese raws and releasing every Saturday.
Next chapter of Ad Astra will be out tomorrow.
Chapter 445: MF | Read Online
Chapter 445 will be out on Saturday from the Japanese raws. Ad Astra will be out on Sunday.
Chapter 444 HQ version released. Links below.
Next chapter will probably be out on Monday the 7th of September unless there’s a Chinese raw that comes out before Friday…
Speak of the devil…
Fun fact: the cleaner for the Chinese scanlation group appears to be changing from week to week which is why some releases from them look like utter crap and some are actually good (like this weeks).

Also, v2 of the last chapter. The Hi Shin Unit is actually 8000 men strong, not 7000.
