2 Dropped Projects

So the post’s title says it all, we are dropping both of these projects. And they are Maoyuu Maou Gaiden and Golden Time.

We were lucky enough to get Casanova to help us finish the volume and not only that, they are going to pick up the series. We didn’t really look for anyone to pick up Maoyuu Gaiden, so if anyone wants to pick it up go for it (we do not have any raws or scripts for future volumes.)

Golden Time chapter 17: like usual !gldntm17
Credits: Rpapo, Savino, Klauz Miene, BestNumber?8721, Tea-Cakes, Frmaniaci, CaptWolf, and Azuma

Maoyuu Gaiden chapters: !gaiden2, !gaiden3, !gaiden4
Staff: Abacus, Polaris, Hinokai, Savino, CaptWolf, Raukcaran, Azuma, and Soranokira

So the reason we are dropping these projects is because it is so difficult to find staff for them and I don’t have the time to manage them anymore. There will be more dropped projects in the future. There are a least 3 projects on the precipice.

We are still looking for staff, proofreaders are out top concern at the moment, so if you are an awesome proofreader please apply. I am also looking for translators for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and Kokoro Connect. Please click on the Join Us tab above to apply.

Happy 5th anniversary, Village Idiot!!

It brings me great pleasure to announce our fifth anniversary. (It seems I’m always in the right place and time to be the first to announce anything. XD) Over the past year, we’ve completed a few projects and picked up quite a few more, but what marked last year as being special is reaching our 1000th release! We have also gained quite a few staff members, though we still need more. What didn’t change was your support for us! And to celebrate that, we’ll be releasing a bundle of chapters today. Please look out for them here as the day progresses.

As always, we need donations and staff to keep bringing you these awesome manga, so please help us by donating to us using the panel on the right, or applying to one of our vacant positions! Thank you!

I really wanted to thank all the staff for all their hard work, there were a few standouts that I want to personally mention. These are people that worked extremely hard this past week on projects I managed, They are Klauz Miene, Fenrill, Sjiveru, J-Rex, Savino, and KaiHeartnet. I also want to mention 3 staff members that worked hard but we weren’t able to release their work, and they are Abacus, Laika, and Raukcaran. I want all the readers to help me thank them too, I want to see more comments than releases guys, its not that hard to comment, we need the motivation.


Golden Time Chapter 14

It’s been awhile since we had a release for this series, we didn’t have a translator for the longest. Luckily, Fishballs appeared and we’ll see how many chapters we can release before the anime comes out. Make sure to thank Fishballs for his hard work. The trigger is !gldntm14.

Staff: Fishballs, TDNF, J-Rex, Azuma, Psi, Rpapo, and Purr-Nyan.

We are still looking for staff, in fact we are looking for 3 translators, 2 proofers, 1 typesetter. If you think you can help please apply.

Golden Time Chapter 13

It’s been awhile since we released a Golden TIme chapter but here it is. Hayatakun is still a little busy with school so I’m not sure when we’ll see the next chapter (probably in another month). The trigger is !gldntm13.

Staff: Hayatakun, Psi, Rpapo, TDNF, Soranokira, ZeroDC, and J-Rex

With school ending soon we will once again begin pushing for new staff especially translators, we’d really like to get our stalled series going again. So make sure to look at the staff needs list on the right and apply!


Golden Time Chapter 12

This is the last chapter in volume 2; next volume comes out on March 27th, so no new chapters till at least mid-April. This chapter left us with more questions than answers; it’s gonna be a pain to have to wait til April. The trigger is !gldntm12.

I really want to thank all the people that helped me out on this chapter, it wasn’t easy at all. Hayatakun was super fast at translating and Soranokira helped cleaned it up. Hinokai was quick and did great with the cleans (there were so many redraws). And lastly, Psi and Rpapo made sure the release was as error free as possible.

I wonder what we’ll work on in the meantime. Are you a translator and have a project in mind? Please contact us on our about page above.

Golden Time 11 and Regatta 40

2 more chapters for everyone today.

I know most people have already read another version of Golden Time, just consider that a version 0. Our release has a lot of corrections to the script and redraws of the text. I hope you can see the difference in quality and that is  basically why our releases are slower. The trigger is !gldntm11.

Edit: Found some mistakes and there is now a new version.

Concerning pages 154-155: The two pages appear to have been drawn separately, but intended to appear to be one big drawing, taking advantage of the book binding to hide the discontinuity at the junction of the pages. So there you have it.

Please thank the staff that helped out on this chapter: Hayatakun, Wil, TsunTsun, Psi, and Rpapo.

Well it’s a longer post than I wanted but I still need to talk about Regatta. We get a nice flashback chapter, I think most people will enjoy it. So go read it! Trigger is !regatta40.

Staff for Regatta 40: Taylor, Savino, KelpTheGreat, and Psi.

Golden Time Chapter 10

A bit of a cliff-hanger in chapter 10. let’s see what happens next. I also want to thank hayatakun for translating this chapter. The trigger is !gldntm10.

As always, we’re actively looking for translators to help move our series along, so visit our IRC channel and PM or ping an operator, or put in an application under the ‘About’ tab on our website! And, no matter what the donation goal says, we could always use a few extra dollars to get more/better raws.

Golden Time 9 and 2012: A Year in Review

Hello dear readers, Raukcaran here, and for everyone at Village Idiot scans, Happy New Year!

First off, we’re releasing Golden Time Chapter 9 for your reading pleasure! Ring in the new year with some great manga, hot off the press. As usual, get it on IRC with the trigger !gldntm9

Secondly, I am here to implore anyone who thinks they could translate for us, and who might want to, to apply! Pleas! Translators are the lifeblood of scanlation, and without them, we can’t do anything! just direct your gaze to the right of the screen to see what projects are in need of translators!

Thirdly, we have our year in review: Overall, 2012 has been a wonderful year! This year, we put out 448 chapters (including this chapter, which is just waiting on my slow rant to post), and also hit a landmark 1,000 chapters total! We had an amazing 4th birthday a few months back, with a little bit of drama thrown in for added pizzaz! All in all, I’d say it’s been a great year indeed.

Thank you all for your support in 2012, and here’s to a gloriously prosperous 2013!

~Raukcaran, and the VI staff

Golden Time Chapter 8

Sorry for the delay, but here it is, the next chapter of Golden Time. I very funny chapter, this series is good I guarantee that if you are a fans of the genres comedy, romance and Seinen you will like this series. The trigger is !gldntm8.
I want to thank Puri~Kura and Rpapo for translating. But this is the last chapter they worked on so we badly need a new translator for this series. If you enjoy this series and think you can help please apply.

With the departure of Linksys, we have a big hole in the role of translator for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha and Maoyuu Maou Yuusha Gaiden – Madoromi no Onna Mahou Tsukai. We have HQ raws, so I really want to get these great series released. Again if you think you can help please apply.
