2019 may not have been a big year for the group, but it was a big year for individual personal growth. As a consequence, though, availability as a whole waned — resulting in a hiatus that is currently ongoing as of time of writing. Over the course of the decade itself, we’ve experienced bouts of flourishing and stagnation. But in the last few years, we became complacent; stuck in the ruts of the past left by those before. While motivation drifted further and further, a fresh set of able-bodied individuals emerged to snuff out the now stagnant, complacent old-timers. A scenario quite analogous to the World Three of old, yet such a distant memory now… To do what you want, to take what you can, this is the spirit of scanlation.

And so we are here in 2020. Whether we remain in hiatus or begin to do something again is uncertain. But with a slate is almost as blank as the beginning itself, the possibilities are truly endless.

To all those in the past/present/future: Thank You.

WataMote Ch.130 (Part 2)

Watamote 130 (Part 2): MEGA ★ Reader

Similar to Ch.115 we have another two-part chapter. Also similar to Ch.115, this will probably get merged together in the volume release. Also sorry again for not streaming. My internet can barely sustain an upload of 10% what I pay for. Thank you American ISPs. At least crunch time is over.

The chapters related to Vol.12 have been updated as such so some links will be broken. Use the DL folder or the Reader to view them easily. DL folder is broken, use the reader for reading and downloading.

TomoMote Ch.15 — 28 [Series End]

H E L LFor the last year Dusthillguy, Meiru, and Ningen (DMN) have worked silently under the name Gospel. Today they officially return home, as the three pillars of World Three.

It’s rather difficult to format 14 chapters with two links for each one so… Here is a link to download them all together, and a link to start reading from Ch.15 on the reader. Special thanks to Clownboss and friends for helping out as well.

WataMote Ch.82 — Correction

★ ごめんなさいまた過ちを犯した。三ページで 「久しぶりに学校で蓮チャンで声かけられたな」 は 「It’s been a while since Ren-chan greeted me at school.」 に翻訳しました。その過ちは 「It’s been a while since I’ve been greeted one after another at school.」 に正した。新人翻訳者で本当に申し訳ありません。そのページは更新しました。その翻訳者はもう叱られました。

☆ We are sorry a mistake was made. On the third page the sentence “久しぶりに学校で蓮チャンで声かけられたな” was translated as “It’s been a while since Ren-chan greeted me at school.” The error has been corrected to properly say: “It’s been a while since I’ve been greeted one after another at school.” Please forgive the mistake as the translator is new and unfamiliar. An updated file has been issued. Disciplinary actions have been dealt.

★ 最初のページに智子はお風呂に入る時皆は恥毛を剃った事を気付いた。そしてそこにコメントしたけど私中身は中間と間違えて台詞を誤った、ごめんね仕事で忙しくて少しミスしました本当に申し訳ありません。

☆ I made a mistake on the first page. When Tomoko saw people entering the bath she made a comment about them shaving their pubic hair but I had messed up in reading the line. I’m very sorry I missed this as I’ve been very busy with work.

Handa-kun/Project Status

It’s late and I don’t know what I’m doing anymore. Here is a piece of Handa-kun. (click image)

Dunno if we’ll do this. We’re all pretty swamped with stuff lately. I just scanned it because I like practicing cleans. Anyway, Project Status update time. Please click “Continue reading” to see literally everything. We could’ve dropped your favorite manga!!?!

Also, I’d like to get more involved with the people via social media. Going to [try] to tweet more about stuff/releases on the tweeter account. There is an ask.fm if you want to ask questions about (almost) anything, even stuff outside of scanlation. It’s easier than writing an email.

Bitter Change: Ch.10 & Ch.11

bitter_change_c010_coverBitter Change Ch.10 — DDL: [MEGA] | Online: [Reader]
Bitter Change Ch.11 — DDL: [MEGA] | Online: [Reader]

This is my series now apparently. Well, let’s give it all we’ve got.

This marks the return of the usage of FoolSlide since we moved servers late last year. Reader links from previous entries will hopefully be updated, albeit slowly. (Almost) Every single thing we’ve ever released can be found there again. Report any broken/misspelled stuff please.

Our old Mediafire got banned from too many DMCA takedown requests. Good thing I preemptively moved all DDLs from there on a whim one day. ()

A Surprise

<~Meiru>: m3ow, ningen: Release leftover anthology raws to public? Y/N
<Ningen>: Go for it
<M3OW>: yeah, i don’t care

I’m dumping the raws for the unreleased chapters from the Watamote Anthology. These are chapters 4 & 7-10. For one reason or another they were never put on priority and eventually fell the wayside. Instead of stalling 5ever like a bunch of other things we have, you can just have them. Do whatever you want with them. Scanlate it if you’re so inclined.

Scanned in at 600DPI 16-bit grey, shitty auto crop, light levels applied, downscaled to 2400px.

P.S. We got a bunch of DMCA takedowns yesterday. All I can say is: (^:
