Please give a big thanks to @akuichansera, @hidesbreadcrumbs, and @rurounins for the huge amount of help they did to get this chapter out! The chapter would not be out this fast without their help, so please show them your appreciation!
As always, please do not reupload this onto manga reader sites or facebook. If this happens like it did last chapter, I will no longer translate SIH. This is my final warning. Also, please do not screenshot the pages and claim them as yours. Please do not send me messages about my blog or google drive giving you a virus. Please do not ask me where are the next chapters when they’re not out yet. And lastly, please do not send me hate messages.
Other than that, I hope everyone enjoys the chapter! It’s a really good one and I think everyone will be satisfied with the development! Days left until you maybe get a countdown: ? days ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Please visit their blog and thank them warmly for their hard work!
Please do not repost these pictures.
Note: as I really wanted to post them before episode 12, some of these pages are a bit rushed, and I will update the links with cleaner versions in the next few days. Please look under the cut for up-to-date download links!
If you care about reading manga online, please take a bit of time to read this. The matter affects the majority of online manga. Batoto, where many manga series are actually hosted, is undergoing massive changes right now. Primarily, you must be a signed in member to read manga on the site. This can be inconvenient, but it is vital to the continuation of the site as a whole. As a manga scanlator, I’ll try to offer some insight that might help people out.
Batoto is the best site for organization and crediting
No other manga hosting site comes close to Batoto in terms of actually giving scanlation teams credit for what they do. It lets individual chapters have a credit to the group, as well as to the actual user that uploaded it. Batoto also allows groups to request takedowns of their work if they do not want it available there. No other site takes these measure to help the uploaders. Most manga websites simply host the images and that’s that. Which brings us to the next point.
Mirror reader sites leech content for private gain and hurt others
Many other manga sites do not have any type of actual upload feature. That is because they simply crawl on the Batoto servers and steal the content posted there to host on their own site. In most of these cases, the images are compressed and lower quality, there is rarely any credit to the groups that made the scans, and a lot of the sites put their own watermark on the images. Many of these sites are filled with ads, which just serve to make money for the people running them whoa are already taking from others. That’s the key in this issue. Running a server for a website costs money. Traffic to that site costs money. When there are over 100 different site grabbing 10,000 different manga series from Batoto multiple times per hour, it puts a massive strain on their servers, and become expensive for the people running them.
What the changes mean
To read manga on Batoto you will now need to sign up for an account. It’s totally free, and doesn’t cause any problems. That’s the simple part. The larger impact will come from the fact that many other sites or manga viewing applications will start to have difficulty grabbing chapters from Batoto, or will stop functioning.
What you can do
The course of action that I would advocate would be to sign up for a Batoto account and start to use it whenever possible. It may have a different interface that takes a little bit to get used to, but it is a great site. It is also good to go directly to the scanlators themselves. Many groups offer direct downloads of their work.
tl;dr,sign up for a Batoto account because other manga sources may be in shambles soon
8 days left until… something happens! Like before, please thank misachips, sau-zaa, and akuichansera for their help cleaning! The next issue of Emerald will be out in December 2015 I can now go back into hibernation. Until then, let me know what you think of the chapters!
I was asked to translate TG epilogue, so here you go~ I could have sworn I saw others translated them before, but I couldn’t find it, so I decided to do it myself. I had to research how to do typesetting since I’ve never done it before. Hope it looks somewhat decent. XD;;; Raws taken from Sen Manga.
P.S: Those flowers on the panel before Sasaki appeared, that is Kinmokusei (Sweet Olive flower), which is another way to pronounce Kaneki’s name in Kanji.
Not remotely on time, or anything, but I just stumbled upon this and it was too sweet to pass up. I’ve missed doing those little pixiv comics, so if anyone has any cute ones they’d like to see translated, hit me up!
The recent chapter of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi will be out relatively soon™ (If I have to estimate, probably about a week). The next Junjou Romantica should be out in the next issue of Emerald, coming this December 2015.
It’s a day late, but it’s better late than never! Here’s our birthday gift to everyone’s favorite Nekoma setter, Kenma! “ヽ(´▽｀)ノ”
Slightly lower quality release than usual, since our raws for this one isn’t really the most ideal when it comes to scanlation.. And oh, in case you’re wondering why it’s “Kuro” in the translation, it’s really supposed to be like that. “Kuro” is like Kenma’s nickname for Kuroo, so…
I’m still recruiting cleaners, so if anyone has any experiencing cleaning manga, please contact me! It’d help get chapters out a lot quicker!
As for how I’m going to tackle the rest of Emerald, I think I’ll start with the DVD Mix chapters and do 1 couple at a time. You can probably expect 1 couple each week, this would make it a lot easier on me. And then as for Junjou Sentiment that will be out in about 1 week, would you rather see it split up into 2 parts as it’s released or as 1 whole chapter?
