News + a mini splash of stuff

I’m just going to dive right in with the bad news: Horimiya and Black Yome ni Yoroshiku! are officially dropped. Yome has been on hiatus for almost one year and no new chapters have appeared in the magazine (Dragon Age) since. The translator is also gone so that’s that. Horimiya was licensed by Yen Press some time ago, but ever since we picked up the series to redo the beginning chapters in HQ, it’s all been slow-going. There’s actually an extra left in volume 2, but it hasn’t been translated and the only contact we have with the translator is through a MIA staff member.

Shinya Shokudou chapter 34 !shin34
Sing Yesterday for Me !syfm86
Horimiya chapter 12 !horimiya12 (and now dropped)

An update on the rest of our series:

More Horimiya!

New chapter of Horimiya!

This chapter we got some help from Ryuusei No Mafia Scanlations, pass by to say hi if you can =D

A new chapter of horimiya! (please enjoy the cuteness)

And the end of volume 8 of Tokyo ESP! We also have some good yet sad news about Tokyo ESP, it has been licensed in english so we are dropping it. However we know another group will pick this up after us.

triggers: !again83, !horimiya9, !esp34 and !esp35

Again!! 78, Moteki 14 with SCS and Horimiya 8

We’ve been a bit slow with Again!! and super slow with Moteki but what can you do… Anyway, make sure to visit Supreme Cream Scans, our partners for Again!! and Moteki (go say hi to Pimelea, Ghost, Taka, Showdowmonk and thealphalink.)

!again78: Tallrice, thealphalink, Negimaru [RnMS], and Taka.

Again, this chapter we got some help from Ryuusei No Mafia Scanlations, but they can’t do it all, we need some help cleaning and redrawing. If you enjoy this series and want to go back to weekly releases or try for even faster, please apply!

!moteki14: Tallrice, Klauz_Miene Shadowmonk, Aizen, and Chie

Really nice job to everyone that worked on this chapter, its one of the hardest series I’ve ever seen in every area. Probably be a while for the next chapter too. We need a cleaner that can redraw well to even start.

!horimiya8: Sjiveru, Chocobo Productions, awsmnezz, Pistachio, & Picoyama

This is another annoying series to work on, so these people need a pat on the back too. I’m not sure when the next chapter will be out.

We are recruiting for cleaners and redrawers. If you are good at photoshop please consider applying.

3 Seinen and 1 Very Confused Shounen

So I’ve been a little slow since before Thanksgiving in November, I still haven’t done much. Luckily, I have great staff to back me up. Today we are releasing: Horimiya 7, Ito-San 7 (!ito7), Regatta 55, and Yawara 79.

We are working on other slow series but we need some help, cleaners and proofers would greatly increase our speed.

Whew, this chapter took forever but we finally finished it. I really want to thank all the staff that helped work on it. For this chapter and moving forward we will be getting help from an Vietnamese group, Chocobo Productions, if you know Vietnamese make sure to visit them.

Staff: Sjiveru, Klauz Miene, Chocobo Production, Elemhunter, Acreuball, and Nuttallii.

We are also still looking for a translator for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.

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.
