January 2011 schedule

January 2011
Slot 1 Route 225 vol 1 [END] (300 pages / 3 weeks = 100 pages / week)
Slot 2 Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan vol 1 [END] (160 pages to redo + 40 new pages)
Slot 3 Noririn vol 2 (100 pages to redo + 100 new pages)
Running Series Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku (last 3-4 chapters) (100 pages / month = 25 pages / week)
7o3x ch 3 (36 pages / month = 9 pages / week)
Pokemon Special BW (Shogaku Yonensei) ch 3 (20 pages / month = 5 pages / week)
Ryuushika Ryuushika ch 15 (12 pages / month = 3 pages / week)
Kaibutsu Oujo ch 59 script (50 pages / month = 12.5 pages / week)
Total Average Workload 155+ pages / week

I'm 99% sure that this schedule will slip way into next month, but Pokemon Special 38 releases at the very end of Feburary, and my work for Feburary is fairly small anyways, so it's alright. Now that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, I don't have to rush so much.

I just realized that these HTML charts don't really show the time in the month that each volume or chapter is done. Here's the rough order:
  1. Monthlies part 1 (start of the month):

    Our Alliance ch 2
    Fractale ch 4 [DROP]
    Pokemon BW ch 3
    Kaibutsu Oujo ch 59 script
    Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku (1-2 of the last few chapters)

  2. Do 2/3rds of Route 225

  3. Monthlies part 2 (middle of the month):

    Mudazumo Naki Kaikaku (final chapters) [END]
    Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan ch 5 [END] (from tank raws)
    7o3x ch 3
    RR ch 15

  4. Rotate between Route 225 and Noririn ch 13-16

  5. Redo parts of Noririn vol 2 and Lying Mii-kun and Broken Maa-chan vol 1
Publication dates for magazines at this time of the year are strange, which is why Pokemon BW is at the start of the month. However, I haven't heard anything about YA 2011-02 from fujisan yet, which is why it's in the middle of the month.

Thankfully, all three tanks are easy to edit, unless Kitoh or Satou Atsunori starts being sadistic. I haven't preordered Noririn 2 or Lying Mii-kun 1 yet because Lying Mii-kun preorders ran out and I want to order them together, but I'll do it as soon as they become available. By the way, the Lying Mii-kun LNs end next week as well on the 10th volume (11 if you count the "i" volume).

This schedule doesn't take into account the joint projects with Animexis. Nanika is in the bimonthly good! Afternoon, but it has 5 more chapters out already. The other joint project ended at 2 volumes. Even though these scripts do delay stuff, I am 2 chapters ahead on the second project, so I have a bit of a head start.

Since this joint thing with FTH and Animexis is working so well, we're most likely going to have a new triple joint project. Animexis will supply raws, FTH will edit, and I'll translate. It's also in the good! Afternoon, so the workload other than the first chapter will likely be negligible.

Update: Oh, this might happen anytime this year, but in case Katawa Shoujo comes out soon, I'll take a vacation from scanlating. Looks like it might actually happen before hell freezes over.


  1. I heard from a friend who's working on KS they've got their fingers crossed for a January or February release. Four of the five routes are done and the last one is about 2/3 through the final draft. So weird, but yeah, it may actually be out soon.

  2. What do you mean by last 3-4 chapters of Mudazumo? I thought there is whole volume (8-9 chapters?) to the end.
    Thank you for your hard work

  3. Back in November, I started ordering Kindai Mahjong issues for $15 a pop just to see if I could drum up financial support for it with the release of volume 5. However, now that the manga is about to end, I'll just finish what I have and terminate the subscription.

    I'll end up with a maximum of 4 chapters. Owada usually takes a break every third issue, so I'll probably get 3 chapters.

  4. Oh, when I say "back in November", it means that I placed my subscription with fujisan in November. I'll get 2010-0101, 2010-0115, 2010-0201, and 2010-0205.

    Also, I just checked summaries. It seems that Mudazumo was in all of these issues, so I'll translate the last 4 chapters.

    January or February I thought it would be somewhere in June that makes me even more excited <3.

    Wonder which path I'd play first
