As some of you might have noticed, the Japanese government agency METI is doing a campaign against scanlation and fansubs. They’re specifically targeting 500 manga and 80 anime series and TnR is one of them.
Traditionally, the aim of scanlations had been to translate series that weren’t available in English (or whatever language you’re translating to), dropping the project once the series was licensed and you could buy it in a language you could understand. Nowadays, that isn’t really true any more, as many legally available high-profile series are still getting scanlated, so it’s easy to see where the METI campaign is coming from.
Now in the case of TnR, I have no idea why they’re targeting that, because I think that it won’t ever be licensed in any English-speaking country because of its content and it’s not running in a high-profile magazine or anything, so they’re not going to win anything. But whatever. Either way, it’s quite obvious that the copyright owner does not want any scanlations of it. Therefore, we’re dropping the project and previous chapters won’t be available on our site any longer.
I hope for your understanding and would like to thank all the staff who made the project possible until now.
tl;dr version: TnR’s dropped; don’t ask about it.
A bit on the late side, sorry about that folks.

Got a new translator, but he’s a busy guy, so the translator position for Index still technically open. 67 won’t take so long.

Edit: Mediafire link updated.
Sorry, it took way too long…

Back with a double dose of our lovely little helper! Chapter 6 is the end of volume 1 and there are no public raws for volume 2… but we bought volume 2, so we’ll have high quality scans for it! Hurrah, I dare say.
No woman likes a desperate man.
EDIT2: I dun goofed again. Chapter 6 is now fixed. Dammit.
Mediafire: Chapter 5, Chapter 6(v3)
Edit: Links dead. Grab the Volume 1 batch

Imori editor back, currently QCing Imori. Tonari no Raenzel will NOT take until mid 2015. Apparently there’s been an update in the release date for the next volume. Will finish up Index after Imori. That is all for now…
Finally another chapter of RKB; it’s been a while. Sorry for the wait…
We got a DMCA on our ass on Mediafire about RKB… As they didn’t bother contacting us directly, we’ll be moving to Sendspace downloads from now on. Old chapters can be found on IRC, or look at me with puppy eyes and I might re-upload some of them on request.

Next week we’ll have some Nanige chapters up as well. Still having problems with Kanofic; we might finish it with the LQ raws.
Index editor is back; was having computer problems, so that’s back on the road as well. Imori editor is MIA, still.
I am slow and it was late… but I finished, so don’t complain.
Sorrowful mermaid. I feel for you. Only the lonely, as Roy Orbison would say.

Last release before I leave… Wheee.
Two more things are in QC modo. If I reach an internet café after the QC, I might release that while I’m there… who knows. I’ll also just be working on things as usual, I think. Probably a little slower ’cause it’s a vacation after all. We’ll see.
