More Tough and some changes.

“Welcome to Team D”, with Seiko on the Team the rankings will surely change soon ;-)

Note that from now on the triggers will only work for the latest releases, some older may work still tough. But in any case if ya plan to download older stuff or a bunch of chaps, just look at the botlists. Besides we provide also volume packs (much easier).

We updated our FAQ page too, take a look at it and find answer to some of your questions there. Keep to our distribution rules, to ensure that everyone can enjoy our releases free and in best quality.

Triggers: !tough103 and !tough104 or check the botlists.

Some Tough plus Project Updates

Seiko found some freedom for himself, see yourself… :-)

Grab the release in our irc channel by typing !tough101 and !tough102 or just check the botlists.

On the news side, while Tough is still doing good some other projects have trouble.

As you can see at the MH site, Lequios didn’t have any raw updates since a while, we also talked with the first chapter raw provider, but he doesn’t have any more either. So if anyone can provide more raws or knows anything just contact us. Till then we cant continue obviously.

Ageha and Taboo-Tattoo are both monthly, as soon as latest raws are available (shouldn’t be a problem for these two) we will bring them to you (you can see status at MH as well).

For Baka and Boing, as said, we wait for the Tankobon/Volume 03 raws. But that should work out, since the provider is very reliable.

Also on a side note, a friend of a partner group got his hands on TriageX Volume 01 and started to scan it, despite being busy. Which means, just a matter of time till we release.

Happy Holidays with our Christmas Special!

Christmas Spirit Widescreen

We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As for the Christmas dishes we prepared tons of great Manga. With the links below you can directly jump to your favorite ones if ya like. Note that direct download links will follow sometime later, since so many files would cause an overload. Also Online Viewing follows as time passes. Feel free to show your appreciation at the individual posts (don’t bother with questions though).

On Irc, the triggers are for Lolita[eu], but take also use of Lolita[us] (should be faster) and chrome-dokuro. You know where to find the botlists.

Christmas Special:
Taboo-Tattoo Chapter 01
Takidani Koukou Manga Club – OneShot
Tough 95th – 100th Match
Baka and Boing Chapter 19 – 22
Drunken King Chapter 06

Till then, Happy Holidays and see ya next year… :-)

- Update -
Site is back online as you see. We had an overload even though not providing ddl from the beginning, the run was just to amazing… Well, whatsoever direct download and online viewing links are now added, so enjoy.

Get your Tough…

With all the releases, some might want to give this great Manga a try. So, in order to get started, we went about gathering some information and downloading/reading options for all of you (As always, this should go without saying; downloading and using a picture viewer is far better than any online reader in terms of quality).

Now then, for online-reader fans, you can find the whole Tough series, on manga.animea.net or what we suggest on Manga.Animevibe.net.

For the fans interested in downloading and archiving releases, the best option is still IRC, but you can get direct download links at stoptazmo.com (They don’t have latest stuff though); and at mangatraders.com (You need to register in order to download, but it’s all free). Of course, you can also find direct download links for whole volumes on this site at the specific project page here.

On IRC, you can grab all the chapters (as well as the volumes subdivided into chapters) in our channel #s.a.s. Botlists are here. And the channel, #lurk, has a complete archive here. For bot-listing, just use one of the search-engines they offer (read topic).

Remember to support the Mangaka by buying the Manga in English or any other preferred language when it is released (in your local area).

This should cover your Tough Manga desires, have fun… :-)

New: Lequios Chapter 01!

Something new ahead… An action packed series with some mysteries and a breeze of humor! Find more information and a brief summary over here. And of course enjoy this chapter :-)

Grab this release from our bots on irc by typing !leq01 or just check the botlists.

Manga Awareness: Today’s Asuka show Ch 01-02.

Well, first: We will not be picking this up as a project. We just thought there are many different manga out there and we wanted to bring to light some which wouldn’t be noticed otherwise. This might spur you into trying something new (and If you like it, why not pick it up?). Most of us know there are tons of groups and fans focusing on certain manga series, but the manga world is vast; some other manga series should also receive some attention. (Note: Raws and Translations are available publicly at MangaHelpers)

Please comment regarding what you thought of this manga, and maybe someone may want to work on it in the future. (More of such “Manga Awareness” releases may come in the future if this catches on.)

Now to the release, get it from our irc channel by typing !asuka01 and !asuka02.

S.A.S somehow FAQ

Since a lot of people have been asking about it and because somebody urges me to take care of it (¬_¬ -> Rock), here’s an announcement for anyone who’s thinking of hosting our scans or making translations with our scans. I don’t enjoy spending hours answering email, so be sure to read this before asking sending SAS any questions.

File Release Redistribution Policy

Can I host your files on _____?
We’re environmental friendly scanlators and already have our releases hosted by some very nice people—scans are available through DDL, IRC bot distros, online manga readers, and a few other places besides. We believe that hosting the same files on any more servers will only waste energy, thereby contributing to the carbon footprint of scanlation as a whole.

Point is, don’t bother asking unless your servers are “mother-earth-friendly” and meet Energy Star requirements.

You’re joking…
Ok you won, point is we think it’s pointless to host the files elsewhere when they’re only likely to be used by 5 to 10 people, tops.
If you’re just trying to help people find scans, you’d be serving them better by directing them to MangaHelpers, Baka-Updates Manga or in case of especially our releases just to our Webblog.
Ok, I really want to help people find more manga, and want to make an archive or backup of your releases in case the aliens kidnap SAS. Can I host your files?
If you’re really trying that hard, then the answer is yes, as long as you don’t sell it. To be clear, “sell” will be interpreted as requiring any user to provide money, votes, links, or any other form of payment/compensation in order for them to aquire the scanlation.

Good examples of distributions that don’t “sell” our releases are Animea Read Manga or MangaShare. Both sites are free and the manga easily accesible for viewing and/or download. That is exactly what we like and want all of our fans to enjoy.

I’m already hosting some of your releases and I think I fall under the “sell” fraction. What now?
Just try to put it to public download available. Wait…, you don’t want to? Well then let me tell you some secret that’ll save you space on your server: remove all our files immediately from your server!
How about I just upload your releases to some fileshare site?
No. Just no.

We used to have our files once hosted on MediaFire, but the way it keep deleting our older files because nobody had download them recently was very ungentlemanly.

That aside, we don’t want our releases used to fish points from any file sharing site that give you points/money for each unique download/view/whatever. And again, not to mention the waste of time and energy.

It’s so much easier if you just give the download link to our releases to http://standalonescans.com/. :)

Translating our release into an archaic language.

I am part of ____ scanlation, we are ____ language scanlator. I’m amazed with ____ manga that you work on and want to translate it to the ____ language. You’ll be credited, how about that?
This is a two part answer:

  1. Are you using our cleaned pages? Then NO! Go learn to clean raw pages instead, it’s not that hard to please the crowd by taking 5 minutes to quick learn some cleaning skill; though you’ll still get bashed by quality whores saying something along the lines of “EyeCancer!!! Your eraser must be ugly, it creates more dirt instead cleaning it.”
  2. Using our script? Sure. You can find most of the translated scripts for our releases on MangaHelpers.

    That aside, many of our releases use japanese to english translations from MH, and we’ve come to believe that direct translation from japanese to your own language is much better than translation from any 2nd source (ie: japanese to english to ____ = a bad ____ translation).

But I heard you translate sometimes from French!
Because we don’t have any Japanese translator to do that dammit! If we have a translator for it, we will use direct translation.

Actually, if anybody’s willing to re-translate our previous releases from Japanese, we would seriously consider releasing a new version for each file which was translated from a non-japanese source (assuming a sudden holiday doesn’t make our staff mysteriously *vanish*).

Oh, and let’s not forget that, in those rare cases, we only use official French translations. ;)

Can we use your scans as a kind of reference when I/we’re translating it?
Whatever, it’s not like that we know how to read archaic language anyway.

Other Questions

Why underlined?
Because it’s cool… nobody use underlines anymore, so before it’s claimed as oldskool by 4chan, I’m going to use it again.

Project Update

Hi all, since the most of us are now back from any kind of vacations, we had time to update our projects. This means some changes, get the latest status by reading further ahead.

We will drop or in other words not continue to work on Gamble Fish and Jormungand. For Gamble Fish we were depending on the public translations at MangaHelpers.com. Since there the only translator made it suddenly exclusive, and since it seemed they didn’t wanted us to provide you high quality we will just stop. A shame such *dont-know-the-politcal-correct-term-so-put-in-whatever-you-think* are ruining the scanlation scene. For Jormungand our translator we used to work with stopped translating and since another group has already taken on, there is no need for us to try to continue.

For Wild School we are still in need of French Raws (since the translator speaks French). We haven’t been able to find any nor has anyone contacted us, who would be able to provide us with such raws. With TriageX it looks actually much better. Since no raws at Mangahelpers.com have been provided, we are now waiting for the tankobons. According to what we know they could be released around November. Patience pays out, in this case with higher quality as well as an uncensored work.

The latest monthly series Mangari Michi and Those who chase the Ageha will be continued regulary. We will also try to push Baka and Boing, for which we use by now also the tankobons. And for our beloved Tough project, we finally found some reinforcement so we should be able to pick up soon a nice pace again. You can also look forward to something new we will pick up… :-)

S.A.S 100th Special Release

This is it Ya-Ha! We reached the 100th mark and due to that some special is appropriated… We thought a little batch release to run up to the 100th Release, which will be nothing less than Urasawa’s latest work is appropriate for this awesome event…!!!

Make sure to also watch our mind blogging Teaser trailer in the post before… It will get you into the right mood for the stuff coming up here… :-P

Some few words by us (the three head admirals) may be appropriate as well, …

…so let us thank every member of S.A.S as well as all the other little helpers around for their great effort and contribution in fulfilling this goal. It’s been a long road and we have reached quite far thanks to all your hard work. Lets continue bringing forth great manga and remember: “Believe in me who believes in you!”. Thus for us there is just one way, and thats forward piercing through the heavens… - Rock-Bird, Jooki, Pikokola -

100h Release – New: Mangari Michi Chapter 01:

Mangari Michi screenshotMangari Michi screenshotMangari Michi screenshot

Okay this is it now, the 100th Release for S.A.S! As we started with one of Urasawa’s works, we figured it would be funny to make this one our 100th Release.

What else is to say, well… it may look at first to be a non-typical work by Urasawa, though don’t judge it just by the first chapter, the difference to the second one will definitely surprise you… (Also as it seems, the two Mangaka, in this Manga, try to make use of the criticism and input it in the next chapter…)  What’s for sure is the good comedy inside… the rest will develop eventually. For that right now even the two Mangaka in this Manga don’t seem to know yet where they are headed…  (Get a summary right here.)

Time you try it out, grab it  from our irc channel by typing !michi01 or check the botlists for more options.

101st-103rd Release – New: Gamble Fish Chapter 01-03:

Gamble Fish   screenshotGamble Fish   screenshotGamble Fish   screenshot

Another new pick-up by us… We had our eyes since awhile on it. It’s a very well drawn Manga, with lots of psychological games. On a short note, the main character tries to crush a elite school by gambling (He declares to double with each gamble the bet, starting with 100 Yen. If math wasn’t your fav, that way he will quite soon reach astronomical numbers…). (Get a more detailed summary here.)

On our irc channel you get it by typing !fish01 – 03 or check the botlists for more options. By the way, more then 130+ pages await you here :-P
