MITSUDOMOE VOL. 9 CH. 156 RELEASED!

Apologies for the huge delay on this one… I got sick for a few weeks and then some real-life stuff came up. 😔

Thankfully, things seem to have died down a bit so I can hopefully focus more on working with everyone to bring you guys more Mitsudomoe. 😊

Mitsudomoe Vol. 9 CH. 155 Released!

I’m back, baby!! 😎

After weeks and weeks of not accomplishing anything, I decided to finally come out of hiatus and focus on finishing all remaining Volume 9 chapters for all to enjoy.

I plan to resume hiatus and continue working on those scanlation tutorials as soon as we finish Volume 9, so please look forward to it! 😉

Small Status Update!

micchan futaba dogeza

I’ve got a feeling I’ll be getting a LOT of mileage out of this pic…

Hi guys, Floating Sunfish here again making a short status report to assure you guys that I’m still alive and working on this awesome series as hard as ever. 😀

On the Scanlation Tutorials front, all example panels from all remaining scanlation groups have already been collected, and all that remains is the actual writing part.

Meanwhile, on the Translation front, all pages for the next 4 chapters have already been cleaned.

More things would have been done, but real life stuff came up, so once again my apologies for all the constant delays. ^^’

I would, however, want to clarify that although I have taken an indefinite rotating hiatus from scanlating Mitsudomoe, I have not taken a hiatus from Mitsudomoe itself — in fact, I’m always doing something Mitsudomoe-related at least once a day (which is more awesome than it sounds, trust me).

Right now I’m neck-deep in old Nico Nico Douga videos looking for hidden gems that time forgot, and I must say I’ve made a pretty decent haul already — and I’m not even past the 2010 mark yet! Truly fans of this series have some of the most creative and hilarious minds on the planet. 😆

Once again I would like to thank all of you for all the constant patience and support. You guys really make working on this awesome series all the more worthwhile. 😉

See you guys on the next post!

A Very Special Thank You

And now for something that I should’ve done a long time ago. 🙂

It has come to my attention that for quite some time now, SunfishScans has no longer been the one-man scanlation group that it started as.

You probably noticed that it’s no longer just me on the credits page that comes after every chapter:


azusa-creds

You guys still read that page… right?


It’s been roughly two and a half years since Azusa first started helping out with translating this wonderfully awesome series, and she not only did a great job at it, she selflessly gave me complete creative freedom with her translations so I could keep that authentic SunfishScans flavor that has been a part of this series since Volume 5.

That’s a pretty long time to collaborate with someone. So long in fact, that I am no longer going to claim that SunfishScans is a one-man scanlation group. I consider Azusa to be a major contributor to translating this awesome series just as much as I have at this point.


Which is why, as of this moment, I am officially making Azusa an honorary member of SunfishScans. You literally earned it! 😉


Now, “How does this affect the way I’ll be helping out with Mitsudomoe?” you may ask.

It absolutely doesn’t! 😛

This group doesn’t have any perks or bragging rights to speak of aside from being the only group in existence right now that is interested in actually finishing Mitsudomoe. That’s pretty much it.

Not much of an improvement I know, but I sincerely hope that you will stick around to see that day when we finally reach that last chapter and eventually move on to bigger and better things.

Once again, from the bottom of all our hearts, thank you for everything that you’ve done for me and all Mitsudomoe fans around the world. Working on this series never would have been the same without you.

Welcome to the team. 🙂

Mitsudomoe 13th Anniversary – 5 New Chapters!

_mitsu 13th anniv

Mitsudomoe turns 13 today! (Actually it was on March 9, but I hit a snag so I’m a week late. My apologies. 😛 )

To celebrate, I spent the last 5 weeks translating 5 hand-picked chapters that I thought you guys would enjoy.

Special thanks to everyone who kept the flame alive by creating and posting in the Mitsudomoe and Yabai Yatsu threads over at /a/.

You guys really make working on this series worthwhile. 🙂

Enjoy! 😉

Update: What I’ve Been Up To and Future Plans

sunfishlappy

Hi guys, just dropping by to let everyone know what I’ve been up to so nobody thinks I’m dead… Again. 😛

Lots and Lots of Studying

I’ve been pretty busy this last month and a half doing nothing but research on how to better myself as a programmer, devouring several books and watching loads and loads of tutorials in the process — the reason being that I suddenly realized how little I actually knew about writing good programs in general.

I won’t bore you guys with the details, but needless to say that I managed to find out everything I wanted to know and more — and that, more importantly, this little trip to Programming Tibet is about to come to a close — possibly in 1 or 2 weeks from now (I hope).

All this training isn’t just to improve my programming skills, mind you — I assure you that there’ll be a HUGE Mitsudomoe-related payoff for this if I actually get to pull it off, but not for a very, VERY long time. Let’s just say I’ve got big plans for this series that goes WAY beyond just working on the manga. 😉

Plans Going Forward

I’m sure some of you noticed the new “Chapters Left to Close Gap” and “Chapters Left to Go” counters on the top of this site.

These numbers made me realize how little Mitsudomoe we have left — 157 chapters really isn’t much when you think about it — all the more reason to cherish what little time we have left with this series while we still can.

I’ll still be on hiatus while I finish writing “Translating the SunfishScans Way”, but I’ve resolved to work on at least 1 new chapter every 3 months to keep from falling even more behind schedule than I already am. Hopefully this hiatus won’t last much longer because I am very excited to continue working on this awesome series myself. 🙂

For those who were wondering, the goal of said tutorial series is twofold:

1. To help train aspiring scanlators on what I think are scanlation best practices.

2. To rally up volunteers to help work on Mitsudomoe.

Now, I know asking for help with this series right after I said we should cherish the time we have left with it sounds contradictory, but I would rather get this series done sooner than not at all. I don’t know how long I have left in this crazy world, and I don’t feel like taking any chances. I just really, really want to see this series through to the end, and here’s hoping I actually get to see that day with you guys.

Welp, that’s all I wanted to say for now. Again, my sincerest apologies for the lack of updates these last few weeks. I can’t make any promises, but just know that I’m just as excited about the next chapter as you guys are — maybe even more.

See you guys on the next post!
