Author Dropped Manga Wish List
We're one step closer to starting up MangaDex Scans! We will begin interviews for Translator positions soon and other positions will follow.

For now, here's where you'll share what dropped manga you'd like to see MangaDex Scans focus on!

Please post in the following format:

Series Name
Series Link on MangaDex
Chapter Progress (for example 20/600 chapters scanlated)
Date of last release
Reason group dropped
Raws available?

I will copy paste each entry into this OP so that our team will have a handy reference list to refer to when picking out their first project.

Finally, don't be afraid to suggest Chinese manwha or Korean manhua (I feel like I'm messing up the spelling there) since we hope to either recruit current applicants for those languages or expand in the future!

Looking at Suimasen Scans' site, I don't see this series listed at all, even under the Dropped Projects list
Not personally sure where the raws may be, someone from Vortex scans may know, as that is who Suimasen Scans got the raws for the chapters they did.

Totsukuni no Shoujo
Not sure what the current JP chapter is, but it's on volume 8 (or so) already, and the scanlation has only been done up to the first chapter of volume 5.
Last release: 11+ months ago.

Shinobi Gataki
2 chapters out of 71.
Last update 5 months ago, previous one 9 months ago.

Gag Manga Biyori:
11 random ones out of 358 total.
Last update sometime >5 years ago.
This one's for the true gag connoisseurs, though...

21 chapters out of 61+.
Last update: June 2014.
Most likely licensing reasons.

Paranoia Star
2 chapters out of 8? Mangaupdates claims the whole volume has been released by the group, but only the first two chapters have been uploaded here, and I can't find the rest anywhere.
Last update: 11+ years ago.

Don't have information about the raws and reasons, sorry.

Thanks for doing this, by the way!
