Announcing a new series, Oishii Kaori.

I'm going to stick to tankobon releases from now on. That's how I started and how I wanted to do, but I've drifted away from it somewhat with certain titles I enjoyed personally. My Japanese isn't so good that I can read it on the fly and comprehend all of it, so the ones I really enjoy, I have to translate it word for word to truly enjoy it. And if I'm going to do that, then might as well scanlate it so others can enjoy it. Still, I decided to stick to tank releases for a reason, and I'm going to return to that... Non-tank titles should still see releases, but slower now until the volume releases catch up with it, if that makes sense.

I don't feel like it's my place to put any restrictions on how people should enjoy my contributions but I am going to draw one line: self prints. Some people are paying to have scanlated manga printed and bound like tankoubons and I strongly feel that if you have the money to do that, buy a legitimate copy first. I know people are resistant to buying manga in the language they cannot understand, but it's not like they don't have ways to follow it, like my shitty translation for example. Seriously, if you have the money to spend on something like that. buy a legitimate copy first and give the creator his due.

Lastly, I make my cleaned PDN (Paint.NET file, should be openable in Photoshop) files available for re-translation into another language so just ask. In most of them, translated text is on another layer and the background layer is cleaned and ready to be typeset, so it should save a significant amount of time.

Suck it, Michigan State. Again.
