Priority List

Here is my list of priority manga after I’m done releasing my next batch of Beastars chapters (5 chapters):

  • D-Frag (3+ chapters)
  • Oregairu Monologue (3 chapters)
  • Konjiki no Word Master (4+ chapters)
  • Twilight Princess (4 LONG chapters)

Judging by the heat in the Hiatus Over post, I assume a lot of people didn’t understand this list, so I’ll explain it: I work until I complete the first item on this list, and then move on to the next one. After I’m done with D-Frag, I move on to Oregairu Monologue, and so on.

I’d appreciate it if you didn’t ask me when I will complete what because I’ve never been good at estimating deadlines. I planned on releasing five chapters of Beastars last week, but then I was given tasks from my boss at work. In fact, I assumed that I would catch up to Beastars about three weeks ago, but of course, I didn’t. Whenever I was wrong about my estimates, it usually had something to do with work or college. I should also tell you that I’m pretty much the only translator in this group, so I can’t give any of these projects to anyone else. (To anyone who’s curious, Kono Sekai ga Game is being worked on by one of my other translators, although quite slowly.)

I made my list this way because I believe catching up on one series at a time will be most effective. So when one of you asks for updates, just look at this list. Whatever is being worked on will be bold and italicized. And when that’s done, it will be removed from this list, and so on.

Hiatus Over

The hiatus is over. This following week will be for catching to Beastars. I’ll release the newest chapters all at once.

Here is my priority over the other projects from highest to lowest:

  • D-Frag (2 chapters)
  • Oregairu Monologue (3 chapters)
  • Konjiki no Word Master (4 chapters)
  • Twilight Princess (4 LONG chapters)

Watashi no Shounen will be done weekly until we catch up.

I’ll work on and release the next two chapters of Oregairu by the May 26th.

EDIT: Due to my unstable real-life schedule, the best estimate I can give for Oregairu is the end of the month.

Indefinite Hiatus for Projects

The main typesetter is busy, so every project (except Watashi no Shounen, since that has a unique typesetter) is in an indefinite hiatus. I would like to give an estimated date of 2 weeks, but I honestly can’t say for sure because I’ve been wrong many times before. This hiatus could be sooner than 2 weeks, or later. I don’t know. It will be over when it’s over.

Delays

There will be a delay for the following projects: Konjiki no Word Master, Beastars, D-Frag, Twilight Princess.

The 100th chapter of D-Frag and the next chapter of Twilight Princess are done being translated. Word Master is half done. Beastars hasn’t been translated yet.

Beastars is a special case because it has an interview with Itagaki Paru, the author of Beastars. It’s four pages long, and it is quite lengthy. I’ll finish Word Master first.

The typesetter is quite busy with life and will take a few days to finish D-Frag and Word Master before Beastars is done. Plus that interview will take a while to typeset as well.

Also, I plan on working on the next two chapters of Watashi no Shounen in the weekend.

About Batoto and Our Reader (Extremely Important!)

As most of you should already know, Batoto is closing permanently. Will this effect our releases? Not really, because we have our own Online Reader. That’s what I was thinking, until I found out today that the reader has been unavailable to non-admins of this site for the longest time. I think it’s pretty funny that it took Batoto shutting down for me to realize that my Reader wasn’t available to the public.

We will upload to an inevitable Batoto clone or superior substitute, but please keep in mind that all of the chapters we do are available in our Reader, I think. Definitely contact us or leave a comment if you find a problem with our Reader or something else on our site.

Current Plans (01-02-18)

Now that I have finally gotten my schedule sorted, I can finally start scanlating at a normal pace, for now.

So, what I’ll do is give my plan for the next two weeks.

Beast Complex Chapter 3 TL is done; the whole thing will probably be done very soon. Beastars will be worked on immediately afterwards.

I’ve had a couple of chapters of Galactic Heroes that have been translated for a needlessly long time, and I haven’t had time to check it, which is regretful. I’ll do that and get the chapters typeset after Beastars.

I’m about three chapters behind on Word Master, and I plan to have those translated next.

Then I can get to working on a chapter of Watashi no Shounen, which is two months overdue.

Then a chapter of Maou-sama.

The goal for me is to finish all of the above by the end of the week. Then, after all of that is done, I’ll make Twilight Princess my priority project. I hope to catch up by the end of next week.
