RE: MU/FS/FS/etc (again)

Screw it.

This situation obviously isn’t going to be getting any better, so I guess we’ll just leave it with MF for now. Most of our releases are available on online readers anyway. I’ll see about setting up a makeshift bot on IRC since I have a university line I can take advantage of, but no guarantees it’ll work.

If MF closes up shop then I guess DDLs are just doomed.

Edit: In my apathy, I forgot to mention the context. Fileserve and Filesonic have both stopped providing file sharing services, as well as many other file hosting sites out there. Not a good week for the DDL world.

Blah edit (Jan. 27): It looks like Fileserve links work again. I have no idea when they re-enabled sharing though.

RE: Megaupload being shut down

You may have already noticed that MU has been shut down today, effectively rendering all of our DDLs useless. We will be re-uploading all releases to different file hosting sites, but this is a lengthy process so it will take some time.

In the meantime, if there are any releases that you want to be re-uploaded sooner, post them in the comments and I’ll do those ones first.

Bet you thought that you’d never see this right? No, this isn’t because Underwater released the last 7 episodes of the anime of this a few days ago (100% coincidence, I swear). Anyway, the reason that this took so long is that we got a new typesetter for this series, Ziggy of Soba Scans (NSFW). She ended up having other stuff to do with her own group, but that’s all right because she went all out typesetting this (and Shini doesn’t want to touch this because of the massive amount of effort this series needs). Enjoy.

Chapters 6+ will probably still take a while because of other issues.

00:09 <~Shini-tan> gg crimson
00:09 <&Crimson> Oh.
00:09 <&Crimson> My.

So apparently we’ve been scanlating for a year now

To commemorate our 1-year anniversary here at Shini-tan Scans, we’ve started a new VN translation group – Kohaku Translations. If you’re interested in white-haired, twintailed shinigami, be sure to check that out.

I don’t really have anything to say here, so have some Kohaku:

Blah edit: P.S. Sorry, we don’t have a special release for you guys or anything.

Note: Due to WordPress’s new link filtering system, all MU links on individual posts prior to this one are essentially dead. If you need a specific release, go to the Projects page. We’re currently working on changing them into Tinyurls so that they still work.
Edit: lol they work again.

Just an extra note that didn’t really fit in anywhere in the chapter: the title of this chapter is “Chichinpurin” in Japanese, a pun on “Chichinpui”, which has been translated throughout the series as “Bibbity Bobbity Boo”. In keeping with the food puns in the chapter titles, “purin” means “pudding”; however, as this wasn’t easily translatable into English, we left it as is. Taking suggestions for how to localize it for volume releases (if we ever get around to those *cough*donate for a tablet pen*cough*).

In other news, Nored bought 90 boxes of jello and we’re sending a 2kg box of candy over to Korea.

10:12 <+Noredv3> SO HOW MUCH JELLO CAN I FIT
10:12 <~Shini-tan> 1 only

Chapter delayed because:
1) I forgot to typeset (lol)
2) The battery in my mouse died halfway through and I had to typeset the rest with a touchpad
3) Apparently we have to do actual work in university (?)

Enjoy your twintailed Flower with mizugi.
