Comments are welcome.

Barakamon Chapter 25

We’ve been working on this short chapter for a while and its finally done. As you guys know Barakamon has been licensed and we are just releasing the work we had done. We may or may not do chapter 26, which we had planned as our final chapter. We’ll see what happens. The trigger is !barakamon25.

Staff: Nuttalli, Hinokai, worldcon, Mitsuru-kun, Azuma, & Psi.

We are looking for staff for all positions if you can help please apply.

Barakamon chapter 24 and News

We were a little slow, but here is the next chapter of Barakamon. The trigger is !barakamon24. This chapter had a lot of translation notes, so good job to Nuttallii for looking up all the references, it must have been a lot of work.

Staff: Nuttalli, Hinokai, Lilbammy, Lucy97, and Azuma

In other news, Barakamon has been licensed by Yen Press in the United States(here is the announcement). Therefore, we will be dropping the series after the end of vol 3, which is chapter 26. I hope that we can have chapter 25 out by the end of the month.

Some of you might see this as bad news, but remember: licensing helps the authors, which in turn allows them to make even more great manga. And, in the end, isn’t that better for everyone?

Barakamon Chapter 23

After a long break we bring you another chapter of Barakamon. It’s all thanks to Nuttallii for translating, hopefully we can see more chapters this year. Something about fishing… The trigger is !barakamon23.

Staff: Nuttallii, KaiheartNet, Psi and uh… me… I guess

This project needs staff, more specifically a typesetter and a proofer. If you want to help please apply.

Barakamon 22

Whoohoo! A nice, meaty chapter with character development, humour, and lots of beautiful calligraphy. There’s some really good attacks in this chapter I think we should all learn how to use, haha. We worked our little butts off for this chapter, with extra hearts to Nuttalli and Azuma for their hard work! (Happy belated Canada Day~!)

Staff: KaiHeartnet, Nuttalli, blueberry, Azuma

Trigger: !barakamon22

Barakamon Chapters 20 and 21

Two more chapters for you today, though chapter 21 is really short and feels more like an extra. The triggers are !barakamon20 and !barakamon21.

Staff for chapter 20: Psi, ZeroDC, Nanaseru, and Blueberry.

Staff for chapter 21: Wazuka (new project translator), Psi, ZeroDC, Blueberry, and Freijie.

This project just got a translator so now we are looking for a cleaner. If you think you can help please apply.

Barakamon Chapter 19

This chapter came outta no where, I guess Psi got tired of waiting for a translator to appear and decided to do a chapter himself. I think we did a good job, even if we didn’t get the chapter proofed.

This series needs a translator, a cleaner and a proofreader, please apply.

Barakamon Chapter 18

With this, we’ve reached the end of volume 2 for Barakamon. It was quite long so it took longer than usual. This was the last chapter for which we had a script from Bliss for. This means this series is now in dire need of a translator, and is stalled until we find one. Raws are not an issue as we have still have some leftover from when we bought them for this series, but I would like to have a translator on board before we start cleaning. If you enjoy this series and know anyone that can help us, please have them contact us on our about page.

Similarly to Barakamon, many of our projects are in need of translators so we are asking the community to help out. If you see a series you like and think you can help please don’t hesitate to apply.

Barakamon Chapter 17

Can you believe it? Noah has finally given us permission to work and release his projects, so we are likely to see a wave of releases coming, exciting times I tell you. I am taking over the projects that have tanko raws so that means Barakamon and, um well, I’m not really sure what else, I’ll try to find out soon…

Anyway, this was a project we got from Bliss, Noah was using their guidelines, but I did not so I’m sorry to Bliss if I messed with their vision for Barakamon too much. Still I think a release is better than no release. Ah last thing, thanks Psi for the help on this project. The trigger is !barakamon17.

Can you believe we’ve had just 1 person join since we began our big recruitment campaign? I really want to get the number up to 5! So if you enjoy our releases and think you can help please apply by clicking on our “About” page above.
