I usually get a ton of visits when I release the volume, so I figure that I should announce it now. As you all know, the Pokemon games and thus this manga are endless. In fact, it just entered the top 100 longest running manga ever by volume (if someone fixes its volume count in that article). Thus, I will eventually have to drop this manga, just because there's no end to it.
There are two plans right now for the eventual drop of Pokemon Special.
- Volumes 39-42: Normal
- Volumes 43-46: Scanning and translating only; no editing
- Volumes 47-50: Scanning only
- Volumes 39-44: Normal
- Volumes 45-50: Scanning only
Well, since the volume 43 comes out next June, this is still far in the future, but I thought that I would announce it now.
Other manga don't really have such a plan right now. 7o3x is slightly problematic because it looks like it's going to be fairly long, and editing/cleaning it is a pain. Even then, since they're less time-consuming, so the default plan is to keep translating them until they finish, especially for joint projects.
I feel slightly embarrassed to announce this just after I accepted a request to pick up a running monthly manga that has about 20 chapters out, but Pokemon Special is just that problematic. I've come to the realization that I unintentionally built a shaky monopoly on this manga that even dominates the translation groups of other languages and depends on just one person. I wanted to build a more sustainable group that handle the translation of this manga to the very end, but having failed that, I can only eventually phase out and hope that someone better will fill the vacuum.
