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):
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.
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. 😊
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! 😉
Floating Sunfish, out!
