Goodbye, Sing Yesterday for Me

I lost count how many years it’s been and truthfully, I don’t care. It’s done. It’s over. Rejoice. Remember, and forget. Thanks to the many, many people that have ever worked on this series (and most importantly to the previous group that introduced this series to us all millions of moons ago). Thank Wraith at Death Toll for doing our mutual staff member a favor on this last volume. It’s been wild, folks.

Trigger is !syfm113

With Batoto dead, I am personally done with online readers. If other admins in the group want to use whatever new site comes next, that’s up to them.

Village Idiot’s 9th Anniversary

Hello everyone,

I know we’ve had a slow year, but we are still around, and to prove it, here are a few releases for our 9th anniversary. We’re not entirely sure how many chapters we’ll have, but I hope you enjoy.

  • First we have: The Migratory Forest – A Collection of Walks A collection of very interesting short stories, and very well-drawn. If you like seinen, you’ll love this, so please give it a try. Thank you to our partners on the project Illuminati-Manga, I hope we can work together again in the future (GGpX, come baaaaaack…!). The trigger is !kaiyuu.
  • Next we bring you another chapter of Amagi Brilliant Park. It’s a very funny chapter, brought to you with the help of Eastern Atelier. The trigger is !amagi11.

I wish we could bring you more manga like we have in the past, but we need new members to re-energize the group. Even one new translator would be a big help. If you think you can help, please apply, we can also partner up with a translator that has a project in mind. If you can’t volunteer, please consider donating. Lastly, thank you to all those who have donated in the past, we need all the all the help we can get. 

Shinya Shokudou chapter 43

Every time I work on this series I want to re-watch the television drama (3 seasons). This chapter marks the end of volume 3. When will the next chapter be released? That is always the question isn’t it. Enjoy the chapter! Trigger is !shin43

As for Sing Yesterday for Me, we need a translator to finish this series. It would be nice to work with someone who doesn’t see it as a burden. Please email us or visit our IRC channel.

Yorukumo chapters 5-6

More spiders coming your way. Thanks to Haremless for picking up translations. This is a joint with HotCakes! Triggers are !yorukumo5 & !yorukumo6

In other news (regarding Sing Yesterday for Me), the previous translator went MIA and we haven’t heard from them since March. A translator from another group is doing us a favor so the series will resume shortly (it’s all cleaned, just need to proofread and then typeset). Hopefully not too much longer…

Happy birthday, Village Idiot Scans!

We are 8 years young. This group has seen a lot of changes the past year (for better and for worse), but here we are one year older… time to celebrate! We’ll be releasing a bit differently than we have in years past, but the following still applies: the more you idle in IRC, the more releases to enjoy! A big thank you to our current staff for all they’ve done and continue to do: make me cookies. Enjoy the releases!

  • Amagi Brilliant Park chapters 7-9
    • Chapters 7 and 8 were re-done with a translation check and new raws, and chapter 9 is a joint with Eastern Atelier, make sure to visit them. Triggers are !amagi7 and so on.
  • Cavalier of the Abyss chapter 109
    • Thank you to Likcoras, Darkhellsing and Kristjan for keeping this project alive. The trigger is !cota109.
  • I’ll Make You into an Otaku, so Make Me into a Riajuu! chapter 19
    • New Project!! Another joint, this time with iMangascans, we appreciate the help, please visit them. The trigger is !otaria19.
  • Ruler of the Land Chapter 97
    • So this one was delayed because I was trying to get help with the redraws, that didn’t happen so we are not doing them. Looking for someone to help with this one. The trigger is !ruler97.
  • Mahou Shoujo Kokone wa Kakukatariki chapter 7
    • This one took awhile as we switched to vol raws from now on. So for you lolicons out there, enjoy! trigger: !kokone7


Ho hum

Hi guys. I get a message almost every day about certain series via email or IRC (some more than others) so here’s an update kinda sorta:

Absolute Duo – Dropped.
Again!! – Not dropped. Being worked on as we speak.
Amagi – Slow and steady wins the race.
COTA – Not dropped.
Densetsu – A translator popped up. Let’s hope they stick around!
Duction Man – Dropped.
Fushigi na Shounen – This series has always been slow because the chapters are looooooong. Also, same translator as Sing Yesterday For Me and honestly, SYFM is priority.
Genei – Translator is in limbo. Right now, it’s simply on hiatus.
Flag – Dropped.
Flag Spinoff – 100% in QC. Soon.
Kokone – Waiting on cleans.
Konosuba – Next chapter in QC.
Lime – Waiting on redraws and final QC for many chapters…
Ore ga Heroine o Tasukesugite Sekai ga Little Mokushiroku!? – Nobody has ever asked about this series, but supposedly a translator popped up but then they disappeared? I don’t know. Still on hiatus.
Ruler – Same deal as COTA (it’s essentially the same team of people as COTA).
Shinya – Slow and steady wins the race.
Sora ga Haiiro Dakara – Moved staff around to get this going. The redraws are a nightmare, but soon.
Valkyria Engine – Needs a translator.
Wahhaman – Waiting on translations.
Sing Yesterday – Soon.
Yorukumo – Needs a translator.

Anything I missed? More than likely dropped (and already announced some time ago), but feel free to ask.

News and stuff

Hello hello. Long time no post (from me anyway). We as a group have been limping along, have we not? Some of us never recovered from the holidays or if like me had a death in the family and hung back to take care of things. I do have some news regarding some of the series I manage:

Sing Yesterday for Me: Still no translations and I haven’t heard from the translator, but then again I’ve only recently scanned most of volume 11 due to my ‘break’ so… Hopefully they’re well and I’ll get a response soon. Translator emerged!
Yorukumo: Needs a translator. Previous one left due to school. They also translated Minami-ke so if you’re wondering about that series, …. If you’re interested in translating, please apply via email or IRC. If you do so through IRC, talk to myself or ZeroDC/Azuma directly, preferably through private message.
Flag Spin-off: It’s been completely translated, cleaned and typeset for some time, but QC is taking longer than I would like. Honestly, the cleans need the most work and I am a perfectionist even if it is a series I could care less about (truth never hurts).
Duction Man: NO TRANSLATOR. It will most likely be dropped unless we get one which is unfortunate because there is only 1.5 volumes remaining. HALP!
Fushigi na Shounen: Same translator as Sing Yesterday’s so ……

As for today’s release, I have two chapters from Shinya Shokudou. Volume 3 has been completely translated (Psi is a boss) so we’ll be pumping those out slowly. Enjoy~
Triggers: !shin37, !shin38

Saenai 13

Unfortunately, this will be the last chapter for this series done by VI as the series just got licensed recently

Sentou Jousai Masurawo chapter 20 & Sing Yesterday for Me chapter 87

Made it just in time before the end of the month. Some good news: we’re reviving an old series that hasn’t seen a release in almost 2 years. It’s complete at 4 volumes and we’d only finished the first. We did not pick up the series from the beginning, but rather took over after another group had released several chapters. Any guesses?
