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…
