China has Blacklisted Claymore

I don't know if y'all have heard about this or not but the Chinese givernment has decided to blacklist Claymore. I don't know about you, but my first thought when I heard this was "Oh no! Wedge!" and I immediately went and downloaded the raws of all the chapters we've not released yet so that project is safe.

Let this be a reminder to all of us that political climates change and what's there today could easily be gone tomorrow. If you know of any Chinese fanrat or fancomics that you like, secure your own copies now before they vanish for good.

As for Wedge, I know this delay is a downer, but I'm fairly sure we'll get chapter 7 out at the end of the month. After that, MiniMP3 will be finished her exams and things will almost certainly pick up again around here.

Also, if you're bored, go check out our tumblr page. It's mostly me ranting about stuff but you might find something there that's diverting. Seph's page is good fun too but y'all already know that ^^

Expect Delays

MiniMP3, our principal proofreader for Wedge, has come down with a wreched case of assignments comorbid with exams and will be unable to do anything fun, let alone work on Wedge, until July.

DON'T PANIC! This does NOT mean that we're going on hiatus for six weeks! The translator for scene 7 has contacts and we're sorting something out. I don't have an ETA for the chapter but things are definitely happening and we'll get it to you as soon as we can.

Sorry about this T.T It's always sad when Real Life gets in the way of nice things but hey, c'est la vie.

Wedge Download Links

Hey! Apparently some of you are having issues viewing files I've uploaded in posts. This is totally lame so here are all the chapters we've released so far for download :)

Also, dropbox, I am NOT using your product to distribute pirated content. Jojo Lii, the creator of The Warrior's Wedge, has given us permission to scanlate his series provided we acknowledge him as the author which he totally, 100% is. Rawr.

Anyway, here are the links ^_^ I will come back and update this post when new chapters are released. Please let me know if there are any issues, I don't seem to be able to reply to comments here but I can, and do, read them.

The Warrior's Wedge

Scene 6: The Resolution to Win

A not very long time ago in a whole bunch of countries that are far, far apart. . .

It is a period of personal chaos. Finals and family emergiencies, striking from perfidious fate, have consipired to deprive everybody of their free time.

During this chaos, the members of MiB managed to translate into English Scene 6 of the Chinese doujinshi, THE WARRIOR'S WEDGE, a Teresa-focussed fancomic by Jojo Lii with enough power to slightly lessen the pang of losing Claymore.

Pursued by a vague hunger, Number A sits at her computer, and says a big thank you to theflobear, MiniMP3, Seph, and Varete for their help in producing the totally-not-stolen-because-Jojo-said-we-could scanlations that can amuse her people and restore freedom to the galaxy....

May the 4th be with you!

Jojo Lii has Spoken!! We have permission to scanlate Wedge!!

MiniMP3 the unfailingly excellent got on Baidu and asked him and he said yes provided we author credit which we were doing anyway :D

This makes me really happy! I feel kind of awkward sometimes about the legal complexities of this hobby so a nice, clear-cut case of 'yes' is just the best thing ever ^_^

Scene 6 may be a few days late, btw. Family emergencies, assignments, and finals have befallen key members of the group. We'll get there in the end, though, fear not~!

2010 Memorabilia Interview

Huge, HUGE shout-out to ProGoddess of Mangahelpers who was so quick to translate pages 5-7 when I asked her to and to the marvellous MiniMP3 who not only translated page 2 but also went through and helped me tidy up the wording of all the other pages. You rock man, thank you so much.

By the way, if anybody happens to have a copy of this book can you get in touch? It's got another interview with Yagi in it and I think you can all guess how much I love reading those :D

Three unrelated releases in one week will never happen again, btw, unless Undeadman 3 turns out to exist after all and we get it done at the same time as the R+V interview and a chapter of Wedge.

Blessed be :)

-Number A

PS. Here's the 2shared download link - it's always wise to have a personal copy of interesting stuff especially when it violates copyright ;)

Undeadman 2 by Norihiro Yagi

Read it on Batoto | 2shared to download

Ladies, gentlemen, and persons of genders not included in stock presentation phrases, I give to you, for the first time in any language other than Japanese (we beat TSS to this one!), the sequel to Norihiro Yagi's introductory work, UNDEADMAN TWO!!!

Gratitude to Rigarudo who shredded a copy of Monthly Shonen Jump 1991/4 and Utsune who spent many hours pouring over nuances just so we could all read this chapter. Thank you also to Varete and Seph for sharing their thoughts on the FX typesetting.

Love and Peace to you all!

-Number A

The Warrior's Wedge Scene 5

This chapter is brought to you by Tumblr since that's where I met pretty much everybody who's worked hard to make it happen :)

Uber-thanks to tonari-kun for translation,  Seph (fuckyeahclaymore and f-f-fight) for cleaning and publicity, Varete (gamirt) for typesetting, and, of course, to MiniMP3 (not on tumblr but on DeviantArt) not just for her help with translation checking and proofreading but also for translating scenes 3 and 4 without which this project probably wouldn't have got off the ground. Follow all these people, they are The Best.

Enjoy ^_^
