Magi & Sinbad

More magi and sinbad~!

Here's a message addressing our new delay policy

Batoto, since it's opening, has been a well known site amongst readers. It's the aggregate site that's 'by and for the scanlators', providing the majority of titles for people to read with fast updates appearing on the front page. While this is convenient for readers, over the years it's gotten to the point where there's not much distinction between Batoto and other aggregate sites such as Mangafox. At the moment there's no real incentive for readers to support us by reading on our site. Even those that are kind enough to go out of their way to view chapters on our site's reader aren't getting anything out of it. Some of you might be wondering why we're 'targeting' batoto with this delay policy if other sites are doing the same thing. Batoto has always prided itself on supporting scanlators, and readers that respect that use their site over other alternatives. The issue is how exactly have they been supporting scanlators? In the past they had a system in place to share ad revenue from the series with scanlators but that has since been abandoned due to legal issues. In enacting this delay policy we'd like to make it clear that reading on aggregator sites does not support scanlation groups. If you would like to help scanlators like us in continuing to bring you the series you enjoy please do so by reading on the group's site. To increase visibility of this message we've decided to utilize batoto's policy of respecting scanlation groups' wishes regarding release delays.

We challenge other aggregate reader sites to follow suite, but it's extremely doubtful that they'll do such a thing as it eats into their profits.

All our releases shall be delayed from being uploaded onto by 1 week from date of release.

We welcome any comments and will try to answer any other questions.

Releases / Magi the Labyrinth of Magic Chapter 300
« on: March 27, 2016, 01:54:21 am »

We have reached the big chapter 300!!!

As a celebration Ohtaka has given us a very cute color page! plus something about sinbad at the back
That is about 6 years worth of magi! Can't believe it has gone so far already.

This came out somewhat later since Japan had a holiday so a lot of delays everywhere.

I still remember when I started reading magi~ whoo burned through all the chapters in a day or two. Fun times...
Initially I had planned for the two old admins to post their message here since it is a pretty long milestone for them but... none of them Tammy hasn't sent me the message so.........


I guess they can just post their's in the comments after this has been released or something. <.<

EDIT::From Aoi ;)

I worked on magi from around chapter 23 to 250 something or other last year. It quite quickly became my baby and I still remember at chapter 126 I wanted to stop working on it because I had other commitments, but somehow I started doing more work for it  ???

I still remember, and can't believe, it's been about 3.5 years since Magi Hell. When Magi first got an anime announced I decided "hey let's use this opportunity to catch up" and threw almost all the staff onto the project. We had to complete a chapter once every three days, at a time when we could only manage once or twice a week. Lots of staff members have come and gone since then, but it really was a labour of love and I'm grateful to all of them for putting up with Magi Hell. (And then the resulting AKB, Bullet, Annual Releases and 1000 Release hells. ;))

I originally started working on it because I loved Alibaba as a character and wanted to know his past. Then Gyokuen came in. She's great. Sheba came in too. Alma Torran arc destroyed me. I still love Magi a lot, even with it's ups and downs. Congrats to Ohtaka and everyone who's followed Magi with us since then!

And we welcome YOU, any of the readers, members, ex members, to come and post a short comment about Magi! It can be anything from reflecting the moment you started reading Magi or your favorite parts of it!! We love to read your comments and dwell upon the nostalgic times along with everyone else :]

Enjoy this chapter!

Releases / Magi the Labyrinth of Magic Chapter 299
« on: March 18, 2016, 02:34:26 am »


What's this, Chapter 299!?

But I thought WSS was only released yesterday?

I'll stop you there, yes, this is the real deal! Chapter 299 of Magi in all of its glory.

Now, you may be wondering how it came out so quickly or why it has. The burning question on most of your minds is probably whether it was due to the other group that is trying to steal Magi/are trying to instigate a Scanlation group war. The answer a bit of a mixed one. As I'm sure you've all noticed Magi releases have not been very consistent for some time now. A lot of this had to do with our raw providers (or lack thereof at times) as well as the team having to focus more on their everyday life.

Scanlating Magi is important to all of us, heck, we've carried it with us since way back in 2011. Somewhere along the way in these 5 years almost everyone has had to cut back on our beloved hobby to progress our lives in the real world. As much as we love the series we have had constant reminders and wakeup calls that this is indeed still a hobby. We all enjoy scanlating, each of us in our own unique ways. Despite our differences, everyone does their absolute best to present you, the audience, with these works of art in the best possible light. Sharing it with all of you brings us joy, and even simple words of thanks can inspire someone working to continue to do their best. I'd like to take a moment to thank all of you that take the time out of your day to stop by and leave kind messages, you're the reason why we continue to do what we do.

When the new group started releasing chapters at random on Batoto it definitely caught our attention; as to whether that was their goal I have no idea as we have not been contacted. While at first we were upset, on the flip side it seems to have lit a fire under us. With that heat we decided to show the Magi fandom that we're still capable of scanlating a chapter in less than 24 hours without a drop in quality. While we do have the ability to do so when needed, it's something that is detrimental to the everyday lives of our Staff members. As to whether we will keep up this kind of pace is up to the team members individually, as well as how well we can coordinate timezones to streamline our process. Hopefully we'll be able to continue bringing you more of this awesome series.

Thank you all for your support!

We have something new this week!

Have always enjoyed this series and finally it is back from its mini hiatus! Hopefully it sticks to its monthly schedule.

Silver Spoon seems to be on a pretty long hiatus so... guess the wait continues~

Magi will be out soon, a lot of people have been curious, we got all sorts of delayed due to sickness, real life, etc but we'll try to catch up this week since it was on break on the last so thanks for your patience!

Enjoy this new series!! Yotsuba is reallllllllyyy cute. :)

Silver Spoon

We got quite delayed this week, mixed with no reply from the new translator that passed the test -.-

I'm almost done making the QC test for those that are wondering, so keep an eye on that.

Silver Spoon is also on break for this current week, though I have no clue what it is trying to hint about at the end... Don't really want news that it is ending, maybe it has to do with the circled numbers in chapter names... seems like 20 is the last one possible to be found online.

Anyways, enjoy!

Silver Spoon

And another new manga! I have been planning to pick this for awhile now and finally we have finished the new chapter!

Some of you may know of the LQ release by the other dude on batoto, but no we didn't plan to have a scanlation war or anything. He just released his version earlier than ours and that's all! So please don't go into the comments and start raging over it.

We do plan to continue this all the way until it ends, but would like an additional translator to ease the load on the current one we have. More cleaners and redrawers will help speed this through so that Magi and this won't have any conflicts so... yeah!
