Cro-Magnon Ways

From today onwards (and until further notice), ALL releases will be posted only as DDLs on the forum. You will have to register, but there is no post count to download. All links will be removed from our website during this month. We will still be active and will post release updates on the website, but it will be a couple of clicks more than usual to get the the downloads.

Sorry, folks, but things are not boding well for the scanslation community, and I want us to stay afloat as long as possible, and if that means going back to our Cro-Magnon ways until things calm down, then so be it.

As for our reader, I have not been able to get in contact with any of the people involved, so I can no longer access it to update. I’m sure we’ll hear from them soon though.

We have added three new projects to our bloated list. Flapper Girl from a now defunct group has provided us raws for Nounai Poison Berry (Mizushiro Setona) and Ane no Kekkon (Nishi Keiko), while we have debated over and decided on also getting the uber-glossy and uber-expensive Nigeru Otoko by Natsume Ono. Of course, our main focus will be on our currently ongoing series, so don’t worry about these holding anything back.

Today’s releases are:

Amato Amaro Story 5
Natsuyuki Rendezvous Ch.4
Sakamichi no Apollon Ch.2

Thanks to our reader “Just passing by” who corrected a chronological mistake for Sakamichi no Apollon Chapter 1. The year is dated “1966” not “1996.”

As for Tokyo Alice, I have to beg kpossible’s forgiveness *Gets down on knees and kowtows* She finished typesetting this chapter ages and ages ago, but I could not, for the life of me, stay awake to finish it, and with my Supe hovering around my desk, it’s impossible for me to finish it right now. You will see Alice Ch.6 along with Futago Ch.14 next week. 🙁


Keri: Man, I envy you. I would love to work in a museum, just so I could sneak into the bathrooms to look for Claudia and Jamie. I grew up reading From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, and I’ve always attached a sort of romance to the place.

Rexy: Just so you know, I still crack up everytime I think of you telling me, “It’s cafe au lait, not cafe ole.” (re. Chocolatier) It was a Freudian slip. I think I was watching a bull-fighting episode of Looney Tunes with my nephew when I was translating that chapter. Ole!

Lilly: I haven’t seen Guilty Crown or Black Rock Shooter (TV or OVA) because my poors eyes can’t take the pressure of watching on a PC screen. I’m like your old school obasan who likes watching everything on her beat-up VCR player hooked up to a 5-inch screen. (Ok, ok, so it’s actually a Philips DVP3560 All Region 1080p HDMI Upconverting DVD Player attached to a 19”-inch.) (But you get the picture.) That aside, I don’t think they could do any wrong with Sakamichi no Apollon, except for maybe the animation and music. I can forgive sucky animation and recycled stills, but if the music (I believe it’s supposed to be jazz) sucks, even the great storyline won’t be able to restrain me from disappointment. But from what I see if the short trailer (which covers Chapter 1 & 2 of the manga), it will be one of the best animes of the year. 🙂
