Quick Status Update: Just Got Hired!

sunfish YES

Hi, guys. Floating Sunfish here with some great news!

I just got a better job at a great company and am starting on Monday next week!

After things finally get settled, you can expect more releases in the coming weeks.

I’m going to focus more on things that actually matter so more important things get done.
Can’t wait to hang out with Mitsuba and the gang again after all these months! ๐Ÿ˜„

Please also look forward to the first release of Kodomo Gakkyuu soon(ish)!

New Mitsudomoe Drama CD Track #1 & Mitsudomoe Goodies!

Hi, guys! ๐Ÿ˜Š
Floating Sunfish here with the first new Mitsudomoe Drama CD track courtesy of our friends at m.3.3.w!

My, it’s all come full circle! ๐Ÿ˜„
m.3.3.w was the group that originally brought us the first 12 Mitsudomoe Drama CD tracks from many years ago, and now we’re working very closely with them to bring you the remaining 12 tracks that I’m sure you’ve all been itching to listen to!

New Mitsudomoe Drama CD Track #1:

You can watch the hardsubbed version on YouTube here:

You can download the softsubbed version (with better subtitle colors) here:

You can watch all our Mitsudomoe Drama CD releases on YouTube here:

Mitsudomoe Goodies:

And that’s not all! ๐Ÿ˜€

I was also fortunate enough to recover the files from a dead torrent on nyaa.si to bring you one of the few remaining Mitsudomoe CDs we’ve been missing, “Densetsu no Hajimari (The Beginning of a Legend)!”

While this contains six of the Mitsudomoe Drama CD tracks that m.3.3.w has already translated, I’m just glad that we can finally add it to our collection as it’s an important part of Mitsudomoe history (and also has page scans that are very difficult to find).

You can download it here:

I’m also sharing the BD (Blu-ray Disc) extras from Moozzi2’s Mitsudomoe releases.

You can download them here:

And last but not least, I’m also sharing the anime reference sheets (courtesy of the wonderful Chouaib Raziq) as well as some storyboards and Z-sheets I found that have been lost to time.

You can download them here:

If you have scans of the Mitsudomoe storyboards and other pieces of Mitsudomoe history, please don’t hesitate to share so we can help preserve them for future fans! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Welp, that’s all I wanted to say for now. ๐Ÿ™‚

See you guys in the next release!
Here’s hoping it doesn’t take me so long next time! ๐Ÿ˜…

Quick Status Update

futaba-massage

Let Futaba massage all those cares away while you wait…

Hi guys, Floating Sunfish here with a quick update on how things are going.

Scanlation is still ongoing behind the scenes, although at a slow pace due to IRL stuff and other commitments of all members including myself.

With MD (MangaDex) still looking like it won’t become stable any time soon, I would like to commit that we will be releasing whatever chapters we have ready this holiday seasonย regardless of MD’s status. This wait will be the longest I would be willing to go.

Below are my reasons for not wanting to release our chapters up to this point:

1. I want aggregate sites to properly leech off MD so our releases will reach as wide an audience as possible.

2. MD currently doesn’t have comments, which are something that I cherish for every one of our releases. This is because Mitsudomoe is a niche series, so I value all the comments and emails we get. Yes, your messages mean that much to me, and I assume the rest of the team as well.

If MD does become stable before the holiday season (not likely, but I’m still counting on it), then we will go back to the original plan and release all chapters that we have ready one week after they make the announcement.

As for the YouTube channel, you may have noticed that a lot of the Mitsudomoe Archive videos have been privated. This is because we got two copyright strikes early this year thanks to Sony going around and flagging everything they’ve been involved with on YouTube.

Rest assured that I’m slowly restoring the privated videos, and will go back to uploading new Mitsudomoe videos once everything has been unprivated.

Welp, that’s all I wanted to say for now. See you guys this December! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Quick Update: Current Direction

matsuoka is typing

Hi guys, Floating Sunfish here with a quick update on our current direction.

With MangaDex currently being down for the time being, and with all upcoming chapters being the usual short length, I think now would be a good time to make another batch release. It’s been so long since anybody ever got to read multiple chapters in succession, so I think it would be a nice treat after the long delays we’ve been having.

UPDATE: We’ll wait a whole week after MangaDex becomes stable before we release anything so we don’t get swallowed by the sea of pent-up releases.

The next scanlation tutorial post has also been ready for a while now — I just haven’t had the time to publish it because I still need to manually reformat it for the site. It should also follow our upcoming batch release, so please look forward to it!

I also just finished clearing out my schedule so I’ll have more time to work on Mitsudomoe, which sadly took quite a hit due to work and other real-life commitments.

That’s all for now, and many thanks as always for all the patience and support! ๐Ÿ˜Š

A Warm Welcome to Two New Members!

For those who missed it, we just released Mitsudomoe Ch. 203 here: Link

My, it’s certainly been a while since I’ve made a post like this! ๐Ÿ˜Š

As is tradition with all volunteers whoโ€™ve helped us with a significant portion of Mitsudomoe, Iโ€™m excited to announce that it is once again time to welcome not one, but two new members to the Sunfish Scans team! Let me introduce them!

Denton

Denton

He was gone for a while, but now he’s back in action, baby!

Our first new member is Denton who messaged me on January of last year and offered to help clean Volume 14. He managed to complete 13 of 19 chapters before I lost communication with him, and unfortunately, I still havenโ€™t heard from him to this day.

The last message I received from him was on April of 2020, so I hope heโ€™s still doing alright.

Wherever you are, Denton, the Mitsudomoe fanbase thanks you!

UPDATE: I just got a message from Denton yesterday (Feb. 23, 2021). Turns out his computer broke at the start of lockdown and he’s been trying to find a place that could fix it through delivery. He didn’t have his login info at the time which explains his long silence, but at least we know he’s still doing okay. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Faris Marchovsky

Faris Marchovsky

Certainly a hero we all needed right now.

Our second new member is Faris Marchovsky who messaged me on December of last year (weird how both emailed me near the start and end of last year, eh?) and offered anything they could to help work on Mitsudomoe.

After I assigned them on Cleaning and Redrawing, theyโ€™ve already finished three whole volumes and are currently working on a fourth, while also filling in the gaps left by previous volunteers.

Their enthusiasm, speed, and work quality have been superb, and Iโ€™m very glad to have met them in these trying times.

Closing Words

To the both of you, I canโ€™t think of a way to repay your kindness and dedication with helping us work on this awesome series other than to say thank you and to personally invite you as official members of our team.

The Mitsudomoe fanbase owes you guys a lot. ๐Ÿ˜Œ

I hope you guys stick with us to see that final chapter someday! ๐Ÿ˜Š

And once again, welcome to the team. ๐Ÿ™‚

Apologies for the huge delay on this one, as real-life stuff kinda got in the way again. ๐Ÿ˜“ I’m currently working on making more time for Mitsudomoe going forward, so hopefully, releases will be more consistent in the future.
