Hey, at least it sounds better than Shounen Sunday!


See those tears? Those are MANLY tears.

PLEASE WAIT AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE UPLOADING OUR RELEASES TO ONLINE READER SITES!

So with all the bleeding-heart shoujo we’ve been releasing lately, we turtles got together and figured we’d take some time off just to focus on the manlier side of the Turtle repertoire. We were originally going to release this all on Sunday, but it didn’t work out because… Well, we got held up by Mebius.

Shit always gets held up by Mebius.

Welcome to MANLY MONDAY.

First up, we have the second of three parts of chapter eight of Wild Arms: Flower Thieves. Maxi is moe, but his tears are MANLY. Edited by c0de_da1sy, typeset by DAPPER ZIPPY, and QC’d by Melfra and Clov3r.

And speaking of moe, who doesn’t love manipulative maids? No, I’m not talking about Kohaku, but it’s been a long time since I was able to drop a Tsukihime joke, so just roll with it. That’s right, I’m talking about lost universe! And not just one, but TWO chapters! Jack, the main side-character featured in these two chapters, is a swell dude, don’t get me wrong… I JUST CAN’T STAND HIS SONG. This one goes out to our favorite Frenchie Gruic over at Tout sur Slayers, who just recently celebrated his birthday. Happy (REALLY REALLY REALLY) belated birthday, Gru! It’s not much, but this is for you. ♥♥♥ Chapters six and seven were edited by c0de_da1sy and QC’d by Melfra. Chapter six’s typesetting is brought to you by Zippy, and working on chapter 7’s typesetting is newcomer Kaori. FRESH MEAAAAT.

Speaking, once again, of maids, here. Mebius Gear meets Maria, the maid! =D Releasing a chapter of Mebius is such a rarity at this point, half of me wants to call today “Mebius Monday” in honor of the series… Or maybe “Massacre Monday.” Either way, it’s been forever! The main holdup with this series is that I am literally the only person on staff who wants to work on it. Now, I’m fine with continuing it on my own, but ONLY if other people enjoy the series, too — so if you’re a fan of Mebius Gear, drop us a comment or two! We need to know you guys are still into the series, otherwise we might end up dropping it. QC’d by Melfra, and translated, typeset and edited by, uh… yours truly. This wraps up volume one, by the way, so you can find the full volume download by clicking the link below. Beware, though, that filesize is MASSIVE. (I think we’ll be sizing Mebius down to 1200 px instead of 1600px next volume… Too beaucoup! TOO BEAUCOUP!

Phew. That concludes this installment of MANLY MONDAY. We may continue this in the future, and we might not. Kind of up in the air. Thoughts? Comments? Why, how convenient! There’s a comment button right down there… HO HO HO HO HO.

Love ya guys!

Haha, even if i’m not exactly into this week’s releases, I still love how you guys switch it up and cater to what everyone wants to read, not just the shoujo readers.

Who cares if Barajou and Birdcage and SLH aren’t out this week? They’ll be out sometime and I’m just happy to know that they’ll be out! Doesn’t matter if I have to wait a little longer. :) Patience is a virtue, afterall.

LOL “We need to know you guys are still into the series, otherwise we might end up dropping it.” That’s why I said I wasn’t into it, I wasn’t complaining. We should be thankful for any release at all since there’s a lot of work put into them & if no one is bothering to read them then their effort is going to waste. So yeah, I was just letting them know that I don’t read these releases.

Hey guys, lovely work once again. I’m probably one of the few like Ammy who’s second favorite series to birdcage is mebius gear. I really appreciate the top notch job you guys do, or in mebius gear’s case two people. I’m always impressed with the high quality scans you do. Thanks for being awesome.
