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… :-)

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.

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… :-)

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.

PS: The two Mangaka in this Manga, who try to draw a Manga, are characters from 21st century boys, as well as the woman criticizing them ;-P

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

TriageX News

Hi folks, since some questions arose regarding our latest project, here some intel on that.

TriageX is a new series by Satou Shouji and is currently being serialized in the monthly magazine Dragon Age. Satou Shouji is best known for his manga “High School of the Dead”, which is currently on hiatus in Japan.

As some of you probably guessed the magazine version is censored, where on the other hand the tankobon version will most likely be less so. The first tankobon (volume) for this will probably come out around Sept-Nov or so. Most likely the tankobon not only wont have any censorship, it will of course be of better printing quality. However it has not yet been decided whether we will scanlate them or not (that would mean we redo them).

What’s for sure is that we will continue the magazine scans, as long as there will be raws provided (thx Finestela over at MH so far for that). Also regarding the translations thx goes to Gringe, who said I can tell you guys, that there’s a good chance he will work on the tankobons with his group (XLG), which means there is also a possibility of a joint on the tankobon releases later. But as said, it’s still uncertain.

Enjoy a nice reading and have fun, cya till our next release…

Aiki Chapter 37!

Hey all, this is hisownsidekick with your first S.A.S. newspost of the new year.  I’m the latest addition to the staff here, taking over Aiki proofreading duties from the overworked Scaramouche.  I’m 100% dedicated to bringing you smooth, natural dialogue with a hint of preserved drama, served on a bed of crispy proper grammar.  I’m also probably too enthusiastic about the whole thing.

Apparently my duties also include writing  a number of these newsposts, due to Rock and Piko (the Don) not being  native speakers of English and me being a ridiculous English nerd.

Like usual, the chapter’s being served up fresh on our irc channel; just type !aiki37.  You can also check the various botlists  or use the direct download link.

By the way, we’re still looking for a Cleaner as well as French-English Translators, so if you think you’re up to the task, let us know at join@standalonescans.com.
