December 25, 2003:
Kaila of DGT asked around and began a Christmas Bonanza.
From many groups we came together.
When out of the blue we began to panic!
We had nothing to do!!!
So MegKF offered and rushed to scan.
Now she had so much to do!
For Zig X Zag she had offered to share!
MegKF spoke not a word, but went straight to work,
And scanned both the volumes; then turned with a jerk,
"Now, DGT! now, ShoujoMagic! now, MegKF (of course)!
On, Shounen Chefs and Ichigo Cooks (formally SVU), on Hush! on, Eden and Endless Dimension!
To the translators! to the editors!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"
The leechers were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of manga danced in their heads;
A bundle of chapters she had flung on her fserv's back,
And she looked like a peddler just opening her pack.
She sprang to her bed, to her teammates gave a cheer,
They had done it, it was all over but to share.
But I heard her exclaim, ere she dove out of sight,
"HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD-NIGHT!"
You'll forgive me if everything doesn't ryhme and I didn't do a parody of the entire "'Twas the Night Before Christmas" I'm sure. Now get your eight chapters and let me sleep in peace, knowing that you know that there are many IRC channels to get this from, not just from me.
December 20, 2003:
^o^ Gung Vol 3 chapter 4 was released yesterday. The first three chapters are finally avalible for direct download as well as several other manga releases. I'm back on-line so you can get chapter 4 from me in DGT or ShoujoMagic or from the people in Korean-Movies IRC channel. Enjoy!! ^.^

Gung is a joint with Miyuki Fansubs who edited it. Thanks to Angely4200 for translating and to myself for scanning it. (Thanks to rum for lending me her copies of the manga so I could scan it.) ^.^ Kusatta, which contains male homosexual content, is avaliable thanks to Beline for scanning it, Super-Deformed Washuu for giving me permission to use her translations, and rum for letting Beline know I finished it so she could share it in IRC for me. ^.^;; Also Gung should be avaliable #firstname.lastname@example.org and Kusatta should be in whatever channel Beline released it in. Both releases are avaliable in my yahoo group.
October 30, 2003:
I am so sorry!! I forgot to update when I released the second half of Cosmo na Bokura which is avaliable in IRC and the yahoo group.

July 20, 2003:
HI! I finished ch 2 of Kusatta and it is currently avaliable only in IRC. I'll upload it later to the yahoo group, when I have time. Kusatta is a yaoi manga, please don't read it if you have any objections to male homosexuality.

June 29, 2003:
Ah!! It's been over a week since my last release. I'm sorry, it was a combination of the fact I've been depressed and not having translations to work with until the 27th. Anyway... I finished ch 56 of Hanakimi!! Thanks again go to Zee for translating it for me. It is available on IRC, in ShoujoMagic's channel and DGT's channel. I've also uploaded it to my yahoo group and it avaliable there. Please use IRC if possible. Yahoo groups doesn't like having a lot of people downloading from it.
June 27, 2003:
Yesterday all my releases were uploaded to my download host. So 'YEAH!' for IndigoDragyn. All my files now except for vol 15 of Hanakimi are avaliable for direct download.
June 21, 2003:
YEAH! Another chapter of Boys' N Girl (CH 4!) released. The last chapter of volume 1! I'm sharing it only in IRC right now because of the bandwidth problems in yahoo groups. I will upload it as soon as I get a certain number of votes on my poll. Also I've promised the people in the yahoo group that I would announce Terrad's releases as well from now and he has released both ch 47 and 48 of Hanakimi.
June 17, 2003:
An amazing person has offered to host Doll for me. YEAH!! The link to their site is up on the downloads and links pages. I've finished ch 3 of Boys' N Girl and it is availiable in IRC and on Yahoo groups.
June 15, 2003:
YEAH!! Finished the rest of Doll ch 1, it's availiable on IRC and on the yahoo group. I created a poll for your favorite manga project of mine. Please vote if you are in the yahoo group.
June 10, 2003:(2)
I've uploaded the first 5 pages of one of the projects I want to do that needs a Japanese translator, Koi No Arashi by Masami Takeuchi. The images are up on the project page under the title. So if you want to translate it for me please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com
I've also updated that page to include other future projects.
June 10, 2003:
I give to you *drum roll* 17 Guyz ch 6!! It's the last chapter of the manga and an extra chapter. Chapters 3-4 are still be translated and have the same cast as chapters 1-2. Please enjoy!!
June 9, 2003:
Yeah!! I'm buying the volumes of Bad Teacher's Equation that I don't have. So please if you can translate this manga *japanese* please let me know. I should have the volumes in less than 2 months... *not willing to shell out more money to get it right away.*
June 8, 2003:
Because I could, I scanned everything I could scan from what I bought at the anime convention I went to, so ignoring the tapes and the stuffed animal...

Bad Teacher's Equation vol 8 cover(yaoi),
Bad Teacher's Equation vol 10 cover(yaoi) and
Hanakimi character book cover
Also they are all in japanese, if you want to translate any of them or my other japnese projects listed under projects please e-mail me at Megancata1@yahoo.com
June 7, 2003:
Another update so soon!! HEHE!! I finished editing part c of OK Girl vol 1, which is now up on yahoo and on IRC for download. ENJOY!!
June 6, 2003:
^^; I'm sorry it took so long. Doll ch 1a finally finished. It's avaliable on the yahoo group and on IRC. I'm finally sharing everything again on IRC. Also since Doll is scanned from the polish version of the manga it is read from left to right, not the Japanese style... I loved editing this manga, it hasn't been this fun in a while for me. So enjoy!!
June 3, 2003:(2)
Yeah!! Go me!! I finished part b of OK Girl Vol 1, it's avaliable on the yahoo group and on IRC.
June 3, 2003:
Yeah!! Terrad finished editing ch 55 for me. It's avaliable on the yahoo group, IRC and on his website.
I've also uploaded ch 5 of 17 Guyz to my geocities site. The bandwidth is pathetic. Hopefully almost everyone has gotten it already from IRC or the yahoo group.
June 1, 2003:
Hi!! I'm back from a-kon! Hehe. I'll start editing again tomorrow and I'll put my fserv for IRC back up again too. I'm very happy though because I got the Hanakimi character book which looks really good, too bad I can't read Japanese.
May 28, 2003:(2)
Great!! The link for ch 51 has been fixed. ^^; And part a of OK Girl is up for direct download already.
Bye!! I'm not going to be on-line at all until sunday night/monday morning.
May 28, 2003:
I did it!! I completed the first part of the first volume of OK Girl!! It's avaliable on yahoo groups and on IRC. I'm going out of town and won't be back until Monday, so don't expect any releases from me until after that. I'm not going to be on IRC until I get back but there will be other people sharing it...
May 27, 2003:
I've finished ch 52 of Hanakimi and it is avalible for download on my yahoo group and on IRC. This is the complete chapter, youkosiren started doing the chapter themeselves and didn't finish. They did finish ch 53-54 which they have released and are avaliable on IRC. I have several things to edit so I sent chapter 55 translations and scans to Terrad to edit for me.
May 25, 2003:(2)
Yeah!! Another translator for Boys' N Girl!! Also I've been told that the links for Mars Gaiden are broken, the ones from my normal host. I will take them down and you can just download from the mirror until this is fixed.
May 25, 2003:
No real news right now... I want to apologize to everyone... ^^;
I had the cover scans switched on two of my projects. The ones that need Japanese translators. hint hint
May 24, 2003:
Finally a release!! I'm sorry for about how long this release took, my computer decided it didn't want to copy and paste text into photoshop... Of course it took me 3 days to figure out that that was the problem since it kept saying it was out of memory...
Anyway! I give to you ch 5 of 17 Guyz, it's an extra chapter. I haven't edited ch 3-4 of 17 Guyz yet... 17 Guyz is a yaoi manga, meaning it contains male homosexual content, don't read it if you don't like that kind of thing or aren't old enough to view it. It's up on my yahoo group and on IRC.
May 22, 2003:(2)
Weird... Everything on the downloads page is back up. The host has no idea what happened. All that really matters though is you can download again. ^^
May 22, 2003:
I hate to start a day with bad news...
But... it has come to my attention that my main download host's site is currently down, I don't know any details because I haven't had any contact with him/her. I'm hoping that this will be a very temperary thing.
I've removed all the downloads hosted by that person for now, which leaves only a couple of chapters up for direct download...
If you would like to host any chapter(s) for me please contact me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com...
May 21, 2003:
I've talked to the person who scanned Mars Gaiden for me...
She says she'll scan the other 2 chapters of Mars Gaiden if people want her to and someone is willing to translate it from Japanese for us. So if you can translate Japanese and want to read the other two chapters, they are stand alone stories not related to the Mars series, please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com
May 20, 2003:(2)
I've uploaded the files for 17 Guyz to one of my geocities sites. The bandwidth won't last long each day but you're welcome to try there if you can't get it off my other site... The links for both sites are under downloads.
May 20, 2003:
YEAH!! Another release so soon! I was thinking about waiting longer because of the chaos currently in my yahoo group, but since it seems to have settled down a lot... I give to you Mars Gaiden by Fuyumi Soryo!! It's up for direct download already by both my normal host, who has uploaded ch 50 and 51 of Hanakimi for those who don't have it, and the amazing person who scanned it for me!! It's also avaliable on IRC, the normal channels for me. *hehe*
May 19, 2003:
Hi... For everyone in my yahoo group I'm sorry about any difficulties you might have had while trying to download in there. *Beyond my control!* Yahoo Groups has a bandwidth limit, it was so busy in there that it took 6 hours for a post I made to come through and be posted. People are hosting some of the files for direct download there, you just need to find the e-mail they posted the addresses in.
Also I still need more translators Chinese and Japanese. My release rate is based almost completely on my translators. So... more translators = faster releases! Please if you can translate for me e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com.
Also, I was told of a mistake in ch 57 of Hanakimi... The corrected page is here.
May 18, 2003:(2)
WOW!! I spent almost all day working on my site! The information on the projects page has more information and is up to date. I've also uploaded all the images for chapter 1 and 2 of 17 Guyz (my yaoi project) onto my other site for on-line reading. MegKF's Other Page <--this site has a 20MB a day bandwidth... (Please don't read it if you don't like manga's containing explicit male homosexual content!)
Also Ch 46 of Hanakimi by Terrad has been uploaded to my Yahoo Group.
May 18, 2003:
YEAH!! I succeeded in releasing something the day I got 500 people in my yahoo group!! I finished editing ch 50 of Hanakimi. It's avaliable on mircx #shoujomagic and #DGT channels and on yahoo groups.
Also some quick notes on ALL my projects:
-I'm not editing the chapters of Hanakimi that Youkosiren finished. I'll post ch 51 done by Youkosiren sometime later this week (on my yahoo group). I'm going to edit ch 52 since they didn't finish it, I should release it soon, I have the translations for it and just need to edit it.
-Boys' N Girl... it's going to be a while before I release anymore, since the translator for ch 3 is very very busy... I'm sorry about that... I'll talk to him later and see what we can do to speed up the process...
-OK Girl... I haven't released any of this yet but someone is close to translating the first half of the volumes for me. YEAH!! But, since the volumes has no apparent chapter breaks I'm going to have to divide it up myself...
-MARS GAIDEN I have the scans for some of this now and they are great!! But I still need a Japanese translator for this volume (the un-licensed prequel to MARS, which is licensed)
-My other 2 projects... The person who bought the volumes and was going to scan them for me decided she was to old for this... She's mailing me the volumes and I have to scan them myself... so it will be a while before either of them will be released. I still need Japanese translators for these 2 one volumes mangas.
I guess it wasn't really quick...
May 14, 2003:
I'm so exited, so much is happening!!
I finished ch 2 of Boys' N Girl and it is up on IRC, Yahoo Groups and for direct download. (Now avaliable for on-line reading too.) I finished it as fast as I could since I know everyone really wanted it, including me. I have three translators right now for Boys' N Girl so it should hopefully start going faster...
Also, my totally amazing wonderful host for direct downloads has also uploaded ch 104 of Hanakimi so it can be downloaded. However there is a limited amount of space the host can share... so, vol 15 and maybe 16 will be taken down in a week or so.
Also I'm going to have 3 more new manga projects. Information can be found under projects. I need Japanese translators for them. So please!! If you can translate Japanese for me please contact me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com !!
May 9, 2003:
As promised I released ch 49 of Hanakimi today! (currently Yahoo group and IRC only) I'm waiting for translations for all of my projects. I can't make anymore releases until I get some... I'm hoping to get the translations for ch 2 of Boys' N Girl soon.
May 8, 2003:
Yeah!! My finals are finally over!! Back to editing. Today I have for you ch 2 of 17 Guyz. A reminder: 17 Guyz is a yaoi manga <-it contains explict male homosexual content. It can be found on my yahoo group and on the 2 IRC channels I go to.
For the several people who may be curious about my other projects:
-I have ch 49 of Hanakimi and am almost done editing it, so it'll be released soon.
-Ch 58 of Hanakimi is busy being translated.
-Chapters 2-4 of Boys' N Girl are being translated for me, all by different people, I should hopefully have ch 2 soon to work on.
-17 Guyz (yaoi) and OK Girl (shoujo) (which has no releases so far) are both being worked on by a very diligent translator.
If you want me to release more often and can translate chinese for me, please e-mail me at Megancata1@yahoo.com.
Also please stop e-mailing me for info about ch 42 and 45. The information is somewhere in my yahoo group message archive. So just join the group and look for it...
May 5, 2003:
Hi all, just so you know, someone released ch 42 and 45 of Hanakimi. After talking to this person we've decided that he will finish vol 9 and I'll start working on vol 10 of Hanakimi.
May 4, 2003:
Cool!! So many people helping me, it's great! My new release 17 Guyz chapter 1 this manga is yaoi (contains male homosexual content) and I'm sharing it on the yahoo group and on IRC. The translator, Itsuki, thinks the plot is a little blah but other than that it's pretty good.
Itsuki has also offered to translate the 2 other yaoi manga's I have that are in Chinese and OK Girl which is a Shoujo manga!! She rocks!!
Also, someone said they would scan and translate the first volume of "Doll" for me by Fuyumi Soryo, the author of "Mars", from Polish. I've been wanting to read it since someone else told me about it.
I'm also thinking about buying shoujo manga to scan myself...
May 3, 2003:
Yeah, I have another translator. I still need more translators though. If you can translate chinese for me please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com. I don't have any translations at the moment so there won't be any releases from me for awhile. My finals are this week, wish me luck! ^^
May 2, 2003:
Hi!! I finally finished ch 44 of Hanakimi. It's already on IRC, the yahoo group and on the downloads page for direct download!
I don't have any other chapters to edit right now and my finals are next week so it will be awhile before I make any more releases.
Thanks to braway my layout has been improved and is more host friendly, so now everyone can appreciate it closer to the way Ayasi meant it to be. ^^
Finally put one of my Boys' N Girl Wallpapers up and added a cool mouseover thing for the thumbnails.
April 27, 2003:(2)
Hello everyone. I hope you all like the new layout made for me by Ayasi! I know I like it!! It didn't turn out right on my host, but still...
I've started changing the files on the yahoo group. I'm now sharing Hanakimi ch 41 done by a friend of mine and ch 104 done by braway.
It' incredible over 3,000 hits since April 8th!!
April 27, 2003:
Nothing really new. I'm working on Hanakimi ch 44. I'm taking a short break right now. Someone somewhere has started editing vol 20 of Hanakimi. I don't know who yet. I'm supposed to have the translations for ch 2 of Boys' N Girl in a couple of days. I'm forcing the person who is translating ch 3 for me to actually work, he's been procrastinating...
OH!! I almost forgot to mention this! Someone has offered to make me a cool layout for this site! I'm afraid I'm not really trying to make it better. As long as it is navigatable I wasn't going to mess with it. Still, I would like my site to look better so I accepted the offer.
Also if you want me to release more stuff I need more Chinese translators. If you can translate Chinese for me please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com
April 25, 2003:
My translator for vol 9 has sent me the translations for ch 44 and I'll start editing it as soon as I get home from school.
April 24, 2003:
Hi, it's 2am where I am and I can't sleep, so I decided to let everyone know how everything is. My translator for vol 11 is very very busy, she works very hard and has a life outside of translating, she told me that she won't be able to really translate until at least May. Someone said they would translate ch 56 the first chapter of Vol 11 for me, but I have no idea how to contact him/her... Also someone has offered to scan vol 20 of Hanakimi for me, it's in Japanese so I might need someone to translate it for me in month or so depending... Also on a more cheery note, I should have ch 2 of Boys' N Girl translations soon and ch 3 too. It looks like I get to start making up names soon, the stress from making up names is going to get to me though ^^;
April 23, 2003:
Hi all! I'm just updating the information on the site today. I suppose that is pretty boring...
I'm very happy though!! Over 2000 hits and almost 150 people in my group!!!
I'm so happy with all the feed back I've gotten about Boys' N Girl and can hardly wait to do more of it.
I'm waiting for translations right now, I'm greatly understaffed in that. I need more translators if you want quicker releases!! So if you can read Chinese and want to translate any of my projects e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com.
April 22, 2003:
A quick update before I go to school. Someone has offered to host all my releases and they are avaliable in the download section.
I want to thank everyone who has been offering to help me! I actually only need more translators though. I do almost all the editing myself except for ch 57 of Hanakimi and I'm fine with it. As long as I'm not busy with school I can edit stuff. I actually only have one thing to work on right now and I'm taking my sweet time because it's ch 38 with DGT and they haven't given me any corrections to make on ch 37 yet. If I ever need help editing you'll see me here asking for help.
So if you can translate Chinese please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com . If you want to see some information on other projects I want to do please click on the projects link.
I'm very happy! I've had a lot of positive feed back on Boys' N Girl!!
April 21, 2003:
I'm so happy!! I've finished editing my first non-hanakimi chapter!! Chapter 1 of Boys' N Girl! You can read it on-line at my other site here. I am of course sharing it at ShoujoManga's IRC channel and DGT's IRC channel. I would like everyone who has never used IRC to know that DGT's site has some really good instructions on how to connect to them.
OK! One person has spoken so mote it be! I'll be changing the zips every week instead of twice a week because at least one person had trouble with the group bandwidth. So this coming weekend will see me upload some of the older Hanakimi chapter's I've released and Boys' N Girl chapter 1 in zip form!
Amazing!! Less than half an hour and the other site is already down!!
Someone has agreed to host it for direct download for awhile here! The amazing host says it would have to be a lot of downloading before she'd have to delete it. Still if you feel you can wait until my other site is back up or for me to put it on yahoo groups please do. ^^
April 20, 2003:
Hi all!! Because you visit my website I must reward you!! I've finished editing chapter 43, the first chater of Volume 9 of Hanakimi!! I've uploaded it unzipped here on my website. And tonight, to reward those who joined my yahoo group, I will upload it and chapter 57, 96 and 97 to Yahoo Group: MegKF_Group Yeah!!!
I met someone on-line yesterday who said they would translate Boys' N Girl for me!! Thank you so much Obsidian!! Obsidian has already finished translating the first chapter for me and I will start editing it tonight!!
Also a couple of people have tried to IM me through yahoo... I'm not on yahoo IM often, please e-mail me if you want to talk to me. I like getting e-mail!!
My e-mail is: MeganCata1@yahoo.com
April 18, 2003:
All worship Zee!! Not only is she the amazing person who is translating Hanakimi Vol 9 for me but she said she would translate Boys' N Girl for me!!! Don't worry though we won't start it until Hanakimi Vol 9 is done...
YEAH!! Finished ch 57, well sort of, my friend in Germany edited it, not me, but still!
I'll start sharing it this weekend on IRC and in Yahoo. Change of plans I already started sharing it on IRC and will upload ch 57 to yahoo tomorrow night. ^^
Amazing I have almost 80 people in the group, incredible right? Since only one person said they wanted the group!
WOW!! If the counter is to be believed my site has been visited over 1000 times since April 8th! Although a lot of that was probably me checking to make sure my various site updates were working. ^^;
April 17, 2003:
I'm happy!! I found out more about Boys' N Girl the manga I want to edit but don't have a translator for (hint hint)! Thank you Mirana for giving me the link to the Italian site that has info about it!
Boys' N Girl is about a girl, Aria Hoshina (in italian anyway), whose widower father got a job being the supervisor for the male dorm of the prestigious school, Saiko Gakuen. So he and his family move into the dorm. Aria soon discovers that ALL 222 boys in the dorm are delinquents.^^
April 16, 2003:
I've uploaded Chapters 91-95 of Hanakimi onto my group page at Yahoo Group: MegKF_Group
I should be able to rotate things pretty quickly so if you missed one of my chapters off of yahoo it will be back on soon.
A friend gave me a link to use to translate the official Japanese Hanakimi site to English and the result is :
Then, some time ago from Nakajo receiving the mail in carrying, regional limited news. Flower your ???
The ?? became sale decision even in America. Even from the time before from the American animation magazine request for introduction
Receiving, it reached, being so, it does, but from this month finally also the comics become sale when. First To 4 volumes it issues at one time, because so is, if the house may in America, to check
Don't you think? the ? please see. In addition, when you can read flower you in many ones, it is delightful, is, don't you think?.
I have no idea what this means really...
I think it just means it's not actually licensed but something else?
My friend Stephanie said she would try translating the yaoi manga's I have (they're in Japanese) it will just take her a while. Steph is really busy all the time. Still I'm happy that that means I won't have to stop editing when I run out of Hanakimi to edit.
But I don't want to become a yaoi site, and if you would like me to continue with non-yaoi files, like Hanakimi, (PLEASE PLEASE!!) if you can read chinese please offer to translate my other projects! PLEASE!! E-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com if you're interested at all, I'll give you a link to more info about either project.
MegKF is lowered to begging!!
Pretty please with sugar on top?!?!
April 16, 2003:
I have good news, bad news and depending on your point of view news!!
First the good news:
As you might know I'm going to continue with Hanakimi until someone in the U.S. announces that they have licensed it. I'm almost done with chapter 37 which I'm doing with DGT and about 1/3 of the way through chapter 43, the first chapter of volume 9!! Oh, happy days! ... Both of them should be released by the end of the week and then I'll start chapters 38 and 57 of Hanakimi. I'm just bouncing around aren't I. ^^
Now for the bad news:
I still don't have any translators for the two other projects I want to do : "Dragon Voice" and "Boys' N Girl". They're both in Chinese and I know one of my translators doesn't want to do either and that the other one hasn't decided if she want to do "Boys' N Girl" yet. Please if you can read Chinese and are willing to translate them for me please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com.
Some quick notes about these manga's:
Dragon Voice is not a Shoujo Manga, it is a comedy about a bishonen who can dance and wants to join a boy band, he just can't sing.
Boys' N Girl is a Shoujo Manga about a girl who is placed in the boys dorm instead of the girls dorm. There are a lot of bishonen in this!! The art is very good.
And for the depends on your point of view news:
I have talked to someone on IRC who can decide if I can edit for Hush, but somehow the subject of if I will never came up...
April 15, 2003:
Hi all, after a lot of searching on-line I've found some raw mangas!
My translators are going to try to look up info about the one shoujo manga I found, "Boys N Girl". According to Zee, one of my translators, it appears to be about a girl who was placed in a boys dormintory instead of a girls when her father enrolled her for school.
I do need more translators because I have other raw manga's and my translators only want to translate Shoujo mangas....
I have mostly yaoi mangas (unbelievable amount of them) and one more non-yaoi one! This one is called "Dragon Voice" it is about a boy who is an incrediable dancer, he wants to join one of the top boy bands and make a lot of money... One problem he can't sing at all!! Apparently his voice is so bad it makes babies cry.
I have applied to Hush to be an editor there but I don't want to quit this here either.
Also I've decided since no one has been able to find information on-line about Hanakimi being licensed, including where it was suppose to be posted on the official Japanese website for Hanakimi, that I will continue to edit Hanakimi until someone in the United States says they've licensed it.
April 13, 2003:(2)
I already updated today but I wanted to add some information.
I've talked to several people and none of them can find the information about Hanakimi being licensed, so there is a chance that it isn't true. YEAH!
I sent the translations for ch 43 and 57 to a friend who is going to edit them for me (he lives in Germany so it isn't illegal in the event it is licensed in the United States!). I'll continue working on the ones I'm doing with DGT until I'm told if it is licensed for sure.
However before I discovered this I went looking for another manga to edit and found two possibilities (at least so far) I'm going to keep looking. One of my translators (only have 2) has looked at them and has informed me that one of them is in Japanese and couldn't translate even if she wanted to (this manga is yaoi=contains male homosexual context) and that she wasn't interested in the other one either (this manga is a comedy) to quote, "they seem like guy mangas" (Not quite sure how a yaoi manga, no matter if there are fights in it, is a guy manga ^^;).
But I'm on a quest for varity (doing just one comic gets boring), so if you can read Chinese please contact me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com. Or if you're willing to try translating a yaoi manga contact me if you can read Japanese.
Also, someone suggested that if I want to edit more I should try editing for another group...So I'm thinking about that too
April 13, 2003:
I've removed the old files shared on yahoo groups and replaced them with ch 85, 87-90 of Hanakimi. Ch 86 should be avaliable at http://fullblossoms.cjb.net. Also Hanakimi is supposedly licensed, no one seems to know by whom, so until the people who licensed it come forward I'll continue to share my files but not to edit it...
If anyone has any ideas about other manga's I could edit and either have scans or know where I can get them please tell me.
April 12, 2003:
WAH!! I just heard that Hanakimi might have been licensed!!
So until I find out for sure no more editing/releases... Unless someone has another manga they would like me to edit? (Assuming I can get the scans and translations for it....)
April 10, 2003:
After receiving ONE e-mail about making a group on yahoo I've decided to...(Thank you River for saying "yes" to a group.)
I've posted the first 5 chapters of Vol 15 on the group page. That's chapters 80-84. Ch 81-82 were done braway not me. Please enjoy!
P.S: I am sorry I can't direct link anything for you without paying money for stuff...
Also my two translators are great!!
Eiko has finished tranlating Ch 57 of Vol 11 for me (yes Youko Siren did it before but they didn't finish it). Also Zee (she's really fast!) my other translator has almost finished translating ch 43, the first chapter of vol 9 for me. ^^
I'm so happy! I promise everyone I'm going to spend almost all day saturday in my room editing!!
PHEW! I have so much to do! Four chapters to edit! And if I really spend all day doing it I might finish a couple of chapters. So expect a release in a couple of days.
April 9, 2003:
Do people want me to create a yahoo group to host some of the files occationally?
It would mean joining a group and then downloading off that site... (e-mail me at: MeganCata1@yahoo.com)
Someone requested I send them all of vol 15-17... There is no way I have the patience to send all the chapters that way (yahoo e-mail: 3Mb e-mail limit)
I would also like to remind people that I do share all of Hanakimi scanlated on IRC regardless of who did it.
I'm totally surprised by how many people come to my site!! I had no idea!!
I've added some stuff. You should be able to download Ch 80 and 84 (zipped) if you're like the first person to see them... (geocities)
Wow that was short lived they didn't even last the 2 hours between when I first posted this and got home from school!
I'll start posting my chapters un-zipped on this site again... I'll try to put ch 80 up by tonight.
Also I've added a link under wallpapers for people if they want some of my other wallpapers...
Sorry about that, I missed typed the code for that link... You should be able to get to my other wallpapers now
April 8, 2003:
Wow!! I've got another translator, Zee!! Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!! ^^; I might be overdoing the praise... Thank you Zee for offering to translate for me.
Also, I'm not going to be able to edit anything until Saturday. I feel really bad about this, but I have: two tests, a math homework to finish, and SIX chapters of Computer Organiztion Homework to do by Friday. :(
Hopefully next week I'll have plently of time to edit. ^^
April 5, 2003:
Hi again. I've finished talking with Eiko (the one and ONLY person who has said they would translate for me!! hint hint) and we're gonna start editing Vol 11 soon.
Also I've been trying to improve my editing skills and have been experimenting in photoshop. (Also why I haven't finished ch 37 yet) And I want to share some Hanakimi wallpapers I've made.
April 4, 2003:
DGT re-released chapter 35 yesterday!
I've got the scans and translations for ch 37 of Hanakimi from DGT and I'll start editing them soon. I'm also trying to clean the scans of ch 41 for Eden, who knows if they'll use them since Eden is a perfectionist. I'm not as good at cleaning as Eden is. ^^
I've decided to show everyone the difference between my cleaned scans and Eden's:
MegKF's cleaned up scan
Eden's cleaned up scan
There is a big difference especially since that was just a sample sent to me by Eden that wasn't even up to their standards...
And to save my dignity I would like to point out that I've only been using photoshop for a couple of weeks...
Also I still need more people who would be willing to translate chinese for me so I can edit more chapters!
April 2, 2003:
DGT re-released ch 34 yesterday and also released our long awaited Ch 36. ^^ Ch35 will be re-released when DGT finishes correcting it.
Also I'm trying to do Vol 9, 11, & 14 of Hanakimi, if you can read chinese (language my scans are in) and want to help translate please e-mail me at MeganCata1@yahoo.com (I can't read Chinese)
Already a response! This has been up less than 30 min! High hopes for my continuing this project then. ^^ Thanks to Eiko for offering to help after the 15th. I'd still like others to help as well...
March 31, 2003:
Yesterday DGT and myself released Ch34-35. Apparently I owe everyone an apology, it seems I'm not good at proof-reading when it involves myself, so there were spelling and grammer errors in those releases. I thought I had caught most of the errors, just not all I guess...
March 29, 2003:
After contacting DGT, I'll be finishing chapters 34-38 in a joint project with them.
