Yet another group that, when an aggregator tries to support scanlators, just abuse it with absurd delays. Small surprise that so many people keep using or go back to kissmanga, mangareader and the likes.

@TechnicsMan I'd also prefer if people have problems with the reader that they'd state what the problems are so we could look into them
But people just saying it's bad for the sake of needing something to rant about is a little pointless and lame
(Edit: removed unnecessary "that")

Outrageous timers for chapter release on mangadex. Every time this team picks up the series I'm reading, I know that I'll have to go on kissmanga more often.

@Zing i agree if they don't have the time or motivation they should drop many if not all of their projects so other competent groups can take them.

Dead group.
I wish they could finally make it official and drop all their projects so that others can pick them up.

And why's that @4stjack?

The worst group. Lies, excuses, and empty promises.

Hey guys, are you planning to continue Isekai Meikyuu de Harem o? Will you do chapters already done by Otaku Cloud Skans?

About the recent Nozomanu Fushi no Boukensha chapter (ch.15), not try to be picky but I have came to notice that there are several translation mistakes..
On page 4, Acid Bullets > Acid Blitz based on the furigana
On page 5, the attack that Rentt is referring to is the Acid Blitz. The attack itself is the defensive mechanism of the slime and it will continue the attack as long as Rentt's group keeps attacking it. So in order to stop the slime from using the attack, they have to stop attacking the slime.
On page 6, What Raiz said is because of the size and the viscosity, his sword can't reach the core. So "the sword can't reach the core" is causation of previous statements instead of additional information.
On page 13, Grand Blaze > Grand Prox also based on the furigana
On page 19, "the guild has bad personality" is a literal translation of the raw. It's a metaphor but I don't know English so maybe the reader can get what it meant. Also Rentt doesn't ask Laura to protect them from the smoke but to clear/blow the smoke.
On page 22-23, the guild report task is not mandatory as what your translation suggested, it should be alternative task. The guild staff basically said that the exam is over, if you want to report this to the guild that's fine, otherwise you're free to go home. So it is a trap.
That's why Rentt commented in the next dialogue that way.

That should be all. I won't translate this series because it's a redundant thing to do so no worries and please take your time to make the translation better. Also I really hope you guys use the official English term in this translation instead of reinventing the wheel.

>with 2 week delay they will probably read it on our site
Good thinking, one week or even one day would work; that is if you had a good reader
Avatar
@Tacred their site i slow and the option reset on every chapter too much hassle make it a week dealay would be better after all they don't have a standard schedule and leaving series with no chapters months apart, if you don't have the stuff, motivation or time for all the series drop some its just logical
Avatar
@synically Naw, guys like you want to take it to PMs because you don't want the fact you're getting put on blast for ripping into people, who do this in their free time so entitled brats like you can read their manga, to be in the public eye. You're coming at me so hard because you know you're in the wrong and are bitter about being called out for being an ass.

Epic, grandiose quote of a famous person? It's Josephine Montilyet from Dragon Age ffs.

Also, freakin' lol at you trying to play off how you can't spell.

@synically The fuck is a sweatheart? Did you mean Sweetheart, kiddo? So you literally come here to complain over nothing since you just go to other sites? Sad that Champion puts the effort forward to make these releases and they have to deal with jackass kiddies who will bitch and moan over Champion just wanting some traffic to their site when those same kids are getting it from elsewhere anyways.

Never underestimate the enmity of those for which outrage is a pastime, i guess.

@Tacred 2 weeks sweaty? Ill read them the day they come on my backup sites thankfully there is fuck ton of em,there is so may access points its a huge relief.There you have it sweatheart,dont choke on whatever you're sucking from champions my dear white knighting princess "LUL".

@Synically Wow, picky picky. There is nothing wrong with their reader. Enjoy waiting 14 days because you cant click on the left side of the screen LUL. You can set it to scroll down to view too. Oh and you can increase page size as well. No excuse "honey"

I read when I see them on updates. I just recently noticed that delay was 2 weeks. They have all the right to choose what they want. I think anything more than a week will bring more harm than benefit. But I guess I am wrong since they are still not reducing it.

I hope more groups snipe this shit ass group with a 2 week delay

2 week delay wow no wonder u guys get sniped
Avatar
Group delay: 2 weeks

Why so little? Make it 2 months or more
Avatar
Protip: if you actually release chapters less than months apart then you won't get 'sniped'.

Protip: if you have a bunch of series then you can't stay on top off all of them. Make sure to drop some of them so others can pick them up!
Avatar
I really like a lot of the series, but it pains my heart that sometimes I see others 'snipe' a series releasing several chapters after it's last chapter was months ago, only to see it removed because the group still wants to hang on to the series and then suddenly the group does have the manpower to defend against the snipe and work on the series releasing the same chapters (albeit higher quality) but with a huge delay on the releases. Reminding me again that the series was sniped and dead when the delay is up.
So... good work, just don't remind people twice/thrice that their series was dead. Either let it die or don't have a delay on defensive releases on months dead series.

Sorry guys but i'm a bit dissapointed your new site reader isn't to my liking so i said i'll read'em here but you raised the delay at 2 weeks later i would have any problem if it was just like jaimini's weekly releases not sporadic like that... thats a fail from me and just wanted to express it even all these thanks for the scanalations but if you dont have translators or other staff on some projects from many months just drop them if any other group is interested in them or do a joint release that's all from me keep it up and i just hope you reduce it to a week delay.
Avatar
@Serelanordir No we haven't dropped it nor are we planning to. We're looking for a translator who's willing to do the series, if there's a group that wants to make a joint we'd be up for letting them translating it and us editing it

@Cidolfas At the start of their release-athon they began migrating to a new server, and things blew up. Like really badly. They were stuck fixing things until after January started, almost 2 months from when it blew up.
Avatar
They released a new chapter on their page again, first since the 12th, so I guess they're not dead yet. They also added a post asking for translators.

Between the delay and the lack of any communication it's hard to tell how alive they are, but they do seem to still be alive for now.
Avatar
@a27wolf I believe they were referring to uploading their old releases to the host for the new reader.

Certainly a shame the group doesn't give much feedback, though.
Avatar
two weeks? jeez. at least upload more often on your website. what happened to the 300 releases? or did you guys mean 300 pages? lmao if that's the case

How hard is it to go to their site to read it? Or any other manga site that stole it?

@Ricardo_Rick How does Mangadex let them have a monopoly? as far as I know anyone can upload chapters
Avatar
@krynasty I couldn't agree more. I think they did the embargo because they don't want to hear complains anymore, since they just gave up on translating isekai harem but are too proud to let others translate it, that's why I think mangadex should let others continue the work istead of letting them have a monopoly
Avatar
@fletterman Any idea when your embargo on Discord is going to be lifted for the public to actually communicate to one another instead of using off-site/third party communications to convey thoughts on different manga's

Another thing, i really do dislike batchathons. They are a poor way of trying to control a monopoly of translations that you either have no dedicated interest in anymore nor the desire to translate; And why the ever loving hell would you place a 2 week notice on a website, surely site advertisment and donations can't be that lax.
Avatar
2 weeks is when I actually welcome release snipers
Avatar
Im glad releases are coming out again. They are just as hq as I remember them.
Please try to keep us posted when stuff invariably happens. Im looking forward to some chapters of manga we havent seen anything for in months.
Avatar
Listen guys, if you gave up on translating Isekai Meikyuu de Harem o, please, let others translate, i'm tired of waiting and since you just started to don't give a fuck to the people of your discord i need to talk using this chat, If ANY Moderator of mangadex read this, let others translate this manga, because champion scan don't care anymore
Avatar
So, how dead is Exterminator?
Avatar
Ya know, 2 weeks ain’t cool man >:( thanks for translating though
Avatar
delay is 14 DAYS?! who in their right mind thought that was a good idea? seriously. why even bother uploading to this site with such a stupidly high delay like 2 weeks??
Avatar
I understand the purpose of and your right to implement - a release delay. However a 2 week delay?! Anything beyond say a 3 day delay isn't going to push more people onto your site. It really won't. Very few people would say "I can wait 3 days but not 2 weeks." You certainly have to realize this as well. So then why do it? It isn't hard to guess.

Rather than the standard purpose of a release delay - That serves only to kick sand in the face of those who prefer a more centralized place to view their manga/standardized experience - or something along those lines. It is a big middle finger to the people here. That's the only way I can view it.

I'm not generally one to complain to/about scanlation groups and others putting in work for the benefit of others. Regarding the work itself and the time you invested, I'm grateful for it. I'm more likely to gripe about overly entitled people (something I have experience with). But this BS "gesture" has me reverse my normal stance. So I refuse to visit your website or whatever. I've been intending to donate to more things than I do now - definitely not donating to your group. I'd sooner go to one of the leecher websites before that!

Hello
What's up?
Will we see anything from you guys before the next year?
Avatar
Haven't given their new reader a good long look yet, since it all that's been uploaded are their previous releases (probably what the 300+ chapters was referring to). They seem to holding off on the new releases until they finish debugging the new reader: it works fine for me now, but a day or two ago only the vertical scrolling style was working properly for me.

Some feedback for them: the reader's UI has icons for the different reading modes. You may want to change them to represent the CURRENT reading mode, rather than what you'll swap to by clicking the icon. Had me confused for a while.
Avatar
Well, atleast they made some progress finally
In case u haven't seen it, they have a new reader up : [url] https://reader.championscans.com/ [/url]

it is still relatively buggy(the default reading style is great, like reading an actual manga, but the other vertical scroll style and its page split hasn't really worked out for me, images sorta never load completely and there is this awkward spacing between pages) and slow sometimes(again,might be just me)
There isn't much stuff in the current reader and Sir Champion said he wasn't gonna rest until he uploaded some 300+ chapters, but then again, now it's crossed out,so idk lol
Maybe he ran out of energy? We need to give the guy some cookies!!!!

I've waited this long for updates to mangas i like, I guess i can wait a bit more, kinda gotten used to waiting for my fav comics?
Hopefully, this time he will keep his word and we can finally get some chapters

I don't have much to say to the people here spewing hate towards this group, I can understand the frustration. On another day, there might've even been a hate message here under my name.
If u have been reading comics for some time now, then u get used to waiting for the next chapter to come out. It's a common thing with most groups, but waiting on empty promises is on a whole new level of anguish.
Then again,we should keep in mind that scanlators are people who go out of their way to provide us with the stuff we like so much (sure they may ask for donations for helping with scanlation process) but they're not required to do so!
It's their hobby/interest, we should show a little appreciation and from time to time, ignore/forgive them for not meeting our expectations of them
They're the goddamn heroes we need but don't deserve!
This group has issues, i agree, but they have sorted it out albeit not in a timely fashion. Hopefully they will continue to sort them out in the future. (Help me save face Champ team!!)

Note to champ team :
Please don't cut off communications with your fan/reader base ever again
every group has problems and they might even take quite some time to sort it out, but they atleast stay in touch with the people who appreciate their work
who knows, u might even get help from them as well!
if u cut off your readers, then you will probably face all those negativeness you probably have been facing since last month, badmouthing by readers, random people/groups sniping your projects
All this is not healthy for the community as a whole either
Talking to readers might not always be pretty, but it won't always be shitty either. Talking with them is DE WAY BROTHAS!!!!!
Good luck with your current undertaking and (hopefully)release those chapters soon, i don't think all this negativity flowing around here is good for anyone - scanlators or readers

PS : I apologize if this offends anyone in anyway, i am not used to rambling so much but i had the extreme urge to do so this time. I might've read too much into things and maybe said some nonsense too, i am still a bit disturbed by the whole shit that went down with trashscanlations a while back

You guys are really slow on releases, like super slow.

@krynasty
It's normal that you haven't seen any updates on our reader since we've made an entire new one (which we already would've put live if we had our updates)

We're also aware that Nozomanu Fushi and Assassin's Pride both got sniped. We're still releasing our own version and after that we'll see what we'll do with it
Avatar
What updates are you doing currently because I've seen no change to the system you have other than removing the privilege of chatting on your discord and that's not even related to your website. please engage more with the community you have instead of shutting them out and not communicating any issues or delays.

Nozomanu Fushi no Boukensha: ended up being translated by another group and from what i can see this website hasn't had any of your "batchathons" for quite a while now.

"because of reasons" "because of it"

the fuck is that supposed to mean

@Adasura
We're agreeing that it's taking too long with the site so we planned to release chapters on the old one or on something like MD but we are currently not able to have access to our finished chapters because of reasons.
There are a shit ton of chapters ready but we're just not able to release them because of it
We're sorry we haven't released anything since the first day of the batchathon and I'll be back again, if there are still no releases soon, with more info

IF THERE Site is going to be down for so long WHY NOT JUST Release on This site while they fix it ??????? Like other sites do ???
THEY SAID THEY WERE GOING TO DO Batchathon OVEr A MONTH AGO but NOOOOOOO have to update site first. It feels like scam to take donations before going awall....

Oi, are you wankers alive or should someone else pick up your projects?
Avatar
@Adasura
I read it all and agree. They horde translations for arbitrary reasons, but will not release them because of "viewership being low". Which only occurs because they've held them for 7 months. The only time I've seen them perform adequately is when someone begins a project they've seemingly shelved and claim it being "sniped".

I'm honestly expecting them to revive once the vultures start taking titles.
Avatar
You know I've been following this group for two years and I have to say without a doubt they are the MOST frustrating group I've ever had the displeasure of following.
This group goes dark all the time sometimes going months without posting anything. Their Batch releases are just months of them holding onto chapters for some reason. On top of that their site goes down right before another batch release after the 2nd or 3rd time they've migrated their hosting.For some reason they wont post their chapters on another site while they're migrating and we just have to wait even longer. You have to ask yourself after awhile if its just gross incompetence or actual malicious intent. All this great work they do and they are just unbearably slow with barely any communication. I would read worse quality translations if it meant getting a chapter more than once every two to three months even on the monthly releases.
Do yourselves a favor don't read anything they translate because odds are you might not see another chapter off it for three months if your lucky.
Now let me just preempt all the responses of "they do it for free or why dont you do it yourself then huh?"
I wish I could I simply do not care enough or have enough time to spare to do something like this.
As of this post their last release was on the 22nd of november. They decided to not release any chapters (except joint projects) up until their anniversary release and after experiencing numerous problems in the past which they dont learn from for some reason their reader shit itself and they decided to migrate the site again or something lord knows. We received an a brief update on the 5th. So far we've been waiting over three weeks for them to migrate their site during which they could have release the chapters here or something.

This was the only place I could find to leave a comment like this as their discord rooms are locked and I could not find a way to comment on their site, I doubt many people will read it.
If any other groups are reading this I know there's this stupid honor code that some scan groups follow but honestly if you have a group and feel like it translate some of their projects go ahead. It'll probably take them three months to find out.
TLDR:
Dont bother with this group. Dont get your hopes up to they are slow, they are very inconsistent, they dont communicate well, and to be honest I think they get off on watching us wait for months while they have huge backlogs of chapters they could release.

can i get uhhhhhhhhhhhh

Why does it feel like a lot of the recent chapter updates by Champion scans on several mangas are either late or reuploads? I am pretty sure i've read most of the recent chapters already within the last 2 months.

At this moment in time, I can’t say with certainty the length of the delay. We could be back up and running as soon as the 24th if things go smoothly.

Celebrating Two-Years Scanlating!
Holy S***…

Another year has gone by already?! It felt like I was typing a post similar to this only a few months ago! Despite everything that’s happened this year, same as our first one, this year has been something special… To think we’ve grown so much over the course of a single year is out-of this-world!

For such a feat, we had to go all out. We weren’t content with releasing a mere 20 chapters and calling that a ‘batch’. This year we’ll be doing a 7-day long batchathon which tops our biggest batch by almost double! So, for the next 7 days, chapters will be released (at least) an hour apart after the first release that day. Staggering releases like this should (hopefully) keep our reader from dying.

next day Nov 22

Baaaw, too much traffic for downloads!

1. Make credits smaller or at leas save as jpg with ~72 quality.
2. Turn recruiting page to grayscale and save as png8 with 16 colors.
3. Whoa, you just removed 5 MB worth of traffic for each archive's download or online reader view without any effort or downsides!
Furthermore, you can save scans in png with less colors too! In case of https://mangadex.org/chapter/404263/1 you need to level it a little (6, 1.03, 252) to remove remaining dirt from filters, save with 16 colors, then optimize png and, would you look at it!, you have archive which only 15 MB instead of original 37 MB without any visible changes in quality.

Wouldn't it be easier to just use MangaDex's built-in release delay feature, where you upload chapters right away, but the site delays them for a certain number of hours? The delay setting on this group is currently "none".
