Translating the Sunfish Scans Way
On Hold

NOTE: All releases will now be made on Mondays (Manila Time). Turns out that seeing deadlines every day on your calendar actually helps keep you motivated! Also, if I miss any Mondays in the future, it just means that they’ll be available the following week. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it actually helps keep work on new chapters consistent!

All Snipers Welcome!

TLDR: I think sniping Mitsudomoe from us is a great idea, but we request that you tell us what chapters you plan to cover so nobody repeats any work. More details below!

I recently came across the below posts in a Yabai Yatsu thread while browsing the archive (as one does):

to snipe or not to snipe

I’ve had this feeling for a couple years now that some individuals and groups have been holding back on working on Mitsudomoe because it might start some scanlator drama. I am here to alleviate such concerns. 🙂

I mentioned on the very first post that I made on this site that I never intended to work on this series for very long (though I understand if no one really remembers because it’s been so long):

Seeing how TDX, the most active scanlator of Mitsudomoe seems to have dropped the project due to lack of a translator, I will be picking up the series until a more competent scanlation group decides to work on it.

I also remember mentioning this detail online a couple of times, though I sadly can’t remember on which sites anymore. So to clarify everything once and for all, I am hereby making an official statement that it is perfectly fine to snipe future chapters and volumes of Mitsudomoe from us — we only request that you let us know beforehand what you plan to cover so nobody repeats any work.

we welcome all volunteers!

Oh, hey! Another one from the archive!

To be honest, when I first started working on Mitsudomoe, I was really hoping that my terrible releases would attract more competent scanlation groups. Like they’d take a look at them and say, “Alright kid, the professionals will take it from here!” Unfortunately (or fortunately, if you guys enjoy our releases), that day never came.

I also added a new page on the site way back in March of 2019 specifically to encourage others to work on Mitsudomoe alongside us (I even added a link to it on the sticky, but sadly no groups have volunteered to cover anything just yet). Thankfully, we have had a few volunteers that offered to do cleaning and redrawing for us which is a huge step in the right direction. 😊

pinned and ignored, lol

I now realize that people tend to ignore stickies if they never change after a few years.

The worst we’ll probably do is upload our own version of the chapter if we feel that our version is considerably different enough (not necessarily better) — and hey, the more content for the fanbase, the better, I always say!

So please, if you or anyone you know wishes to work on Mitsudomoe, please don’t hesitate to let us know! We can use all the help we can get to finish this awesome series, and the sooner we get to that final chapter, the better! 😄

See you guys on the next post! 😉

MITSUDOMOE VOL. 9 CH. 163 RELEASED!

Hi, guys! Sunfish Scans here again with a new chapter of Volume 9!

Yeah, this took a lot longer than expected due to real-life issues and, well, the whole world going bananas right now. I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. 🙂

About the New Schedule:

You may have noticed the little note I added to the bottom of the Chapter Progress Sticky. From now on, all releases will be made on Mondays (Manila Time).

Yeah, turns out those motivational guys were right — seeing deadlines every day on your calendar really does help keep you motivated!

Also, if I miss any Mondays in the future, it just means that they’ll be available the following week. Sorry for the inconvenience, but it actually helps keep work on new chapters consistent!

Anyway, enjoy! 😉

Sunfish Scans 5th Anniversary and Special Announcement!

group shot 1

The gang’s all here!

Sunfish Scans turns 5 years old today! Woo-hoo!! 🥳

Man, it’s been so long since I started this little blog that aimed to finish scanlating Mitsudomoe. 😊

We want to thank each and every one of you who’ve been patient with us and gave us tons of encouragement and support over the years.

I’ve also met a lot of wonderful people while working on this awesome series, some even going above and beyond by actually joining me in the scanlation trenches.

Today’s post focuses on another such individual.


Everyone, I’d like you all to welcome our newest member, Daniel!


Daniel actually volunteered to clean and redraw the entirety of Volume 10 way back on July of 2019 and finished doing it in just four months.

To this day I’m still in awe at the quality, quantity, and speed of his work. You’re truly an inspiration to us scanlators everywhere!

And as with everyone who contributed a significant amount to helping scanlate Mitsudomoe, I granted him an honorary membership to our little group right there on the spot.

I really couldn’t wait to tell you guys, but at the time I thought it would be best to wait for our very first Volume 10 release so you guys could see his work for yourselves — Daniel graciously accepting to wait a potentially long time before being publicly credited for his work.

I never expected Volume 9 to take this long (real life is just full of surprises, isn’t it?), and with Volume 10 still a long way to go, coinciding it with our 5th Anniversary felt like the perfect time to make such an announcement.

Daniel, I have no words to say other than “Thank you, and welcome to the team!” 😉

Help Find a Cure for the Coronavirus!

Update: New sections and revisions have been added to the post, so please check them out if you have the time!

Once again, a *BIG* thank you to everyone for joining the cause!

We interrupt your irregularly scheduled program to bring you… Folds!

With this whole virus outbreak thing driving the whole world crazy and impacting our daily lives, I’m sure that every one of you wants this mess to be over as soon as possible.

Thankfully, the wonderful people at Folding@home have been working on an app that uses idle CPU and GPU resources of personal computers to help find viral weaknesses and develop cures.

This means that we can all use our machines right now to pitch in and help put an end to this pandemic sooner.

However, it can be a bit confusing for beginners, so I wrote this guide to help you get started:

MITSUDOMOE VOL. 9 CH. 162 RELEASED (and 14th Anniversary, too)!

Mitsudomoe turns 14 today! Whoo-hoo!! 😆

..Ahaha, sorry about that. 😳

To celebrate, here’s that long-overdue chapter you guys have been waiting for!

We hope you have as much fun reading it as we did scanlating it! 😊

Oh, and be sure to check out today’s Mitsudomoe video if you wanna see the Japanese voice actors have fun with the Japanese fanbase in the hour-long event, Mitsudomofest! There are no subtitles though! 😅

Enjoy! 😉

Quick Status Update!

micchan futaba dogeza

What did I tell you about getting a lot of use out of this pic? 😅

Hi guys, Floating Sunfish here again with a very quick status update! 😊

Things have been a bit crazy on my side lately, but thankfully, everything seems to be slowing down again these last few days. I certainly hope that they do so. 😅

I also just finished moving all my files from my seven-year-old laptop to a brand new, more powerful PC, which means that editing in Photoshop should now be smoother than ever! 😆

On the scanlation front, the only thing remaining is to edit and QC the next chapter, but I probably won’t be able to work on it just yet.

Perhaps in a few more weeks after I finish wrapping up some real-life stuff on my end. My apologies in advance. 😓

As always, we can’t thank you all enough for all the wonderful words of support and patience you’ve given us over the years.

Working on this awesome series has always been a tremendous joy for us despite the huge amount of work involved, and everyone cheering us on always helps to keep us motivated. We really owe you guys a lot for that. 😊

Much love from everyone on the team, and see you guys on the next post! 😉

Status Update: Feeling Much Better 😊

feeling better

Hi, guys! Just dropping by to make a quick update about my recent bout with chickenpox.

I am pleased to announce that I now feel much better and am on a steady road to recovery. 🤗

Many thanks to everyone who dropped by to check on me while I was sick! It really means a lot! 😊

Thankfully, the worst of it is now over and the only thing left is to let these itchy battle scars heal in the coming weeks. 😅

Now that I’m feeling better, I’ll be sure to get back to work on more Mitsudomoe as soon as I finish wrapping up some real-life stuff on my end, so please look forward to it in the next few weeks! 😉

Once again, thank you all for the constant patience and support, and here’s to more Mitsudomoe in the future! 😆

Status Update: Very Sick 😷

sick

My apologies for the long delay between releases so far. I really wanted to work on a lot of chapters this holiday season, but unfortunately, I got sick with chickenpox so it looks like I’ll be spending the rest of the year recovering.

It truly has been an ordeal, so much so that I wouldn’t wish it upon the worst people on the planet. The constant chills, fevers, aching, and itching have been maddening.

Anyways, I just wanted to let you guys know that there probably won’t be any new releases until mid to late January while I let my illness run its course (give or take a few weeks).

As always, please stay safe, and happy holidays, everyone!
