Saki Dropped!

edogawaconan: “Saki has been dropped.”

I didn’t want to be responsible for mentioning this as I am not the project leader nor took part in any of the chapters after volume seven (which I shall be releasing after we catch up with D-Frag!), but since edogawaconan is too busy, lazy, or ashamed to, I decided to mentioned it.

Why did we (the Saki team) drop it? If you have not heard about it already, Saki is getting a sequel to its anime that shall be continuing on the story from the manga, so instead of doing chapters that are going to be animated anyway, the Saki team felt it was useless and a waste of resources. Not to mention, fidzerone isn’t exactly a wizard in mahjong terminology.

edogawaconan edit: hahaha thanks for posting this. Yes I’m too lazy. Mainly editing the scripts. Having to edit half-accurate translation with my not even remotely good knowledge doesn’t bode well with me. No, an editor won’t solve this problem.

Recruiting TLC/Editor/Proofreader for Saki

alchemist11 edit (short version): We are need of a translation checker that know the rules and regulations of Mahjong or an editor/proofreader (that should also know about Mahjong) who can make out fidzerone’s translation into proper English grammar. fidzerone doesn’t want to learn mahjong, so the translation is a bit iffy.

Anyway, interested applicants should send the proofread/translation checked script of Saki 80 to edogawaconan via email at me@myconan.net.

Chapter 80 and onwards are on hold until we find someone capable of doing the task above.

Here are some links to help understand Mahjong terminology:

With recent announcement of second season Saki anime, I sure feel like to put this on hold until the anime finished broadcast.

Saki ch. 79 delayed

And no, not because of the disaster happening in Japan. It’s just because I’ve been playing (and losing at) too much mahjong (complete with cursing and stuff/body-breaking).

I’ve handed the job over to our new typesetter. Hopefully he will be able to finish it soon.

I have no idea whether this week’s release is delayed or not. Let’s just hope the best.
