3rd Anniversary (▼へ▼メ)

Uh-huh, I have wasted 3 years of my life scanlating, and guess what? It’s finally coming to an end. I’ve translated a little over 500 chapters in those 3 years, and it was a great learning experience. Thanks to everyone who supported, followed, and helped me become the person I am now.

I’ll be retiring from scanlation, for real this time. Here’s the announcement regarding the series I’m working on:
Black and White Bubble

Releases after the jump!

Love Tyrant: Twenty-second episode

Mahou Shoujo Site: 019.Another

Mousugu Shinu Hito | Views: 13 ▶ Let me join you

Omaera Zenin Mendokusai | #13: It won’t be that easy

Darwin’s Game | game#17

I couldn’t finish Fujimi Lovers in time, and it’s already the 26th for me anyway. Fujimi release will follow soon. 🙂

Bye, guys!

  1. Hey roan-kun. I have been a follower of your series since Haganai Plus. After catching up on Renai Boukun, Omaera Zenin, and being a great fan of Abnormal-kei Joshi, I just wanna show my appreciation for what you’ve done for the scanlation community. You have been a staple scanlator for three years, and in that time you’ve managed to contribute high quality, well chosen, and timely releases.

    From the bottom of my otaku/weeaboo heart, well done and thank you.

  2. Thanks for your scans, I enjoyed them a lot
    With sometimes scary, often funny plot
    I’ve read your releases as the time flew
    And was excited everytime to see an update from you
    I understand if it’s not that much fun
    Translating this much manga in the long run
    Whatever you’ll do, whereever you’ll go
    I wish you the best of luck in doing so
    While I probably won’t hear from you soon
    Have a great life Roankun!

    • I’m not much of a poet, but here goes:
      Roses are red, violets are blue.
      From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely thank you!
      Really appreciate it! ❤

  3. Thanks alot! love the work you did, I’m sad that my favorite series is going to be drop but thank you for all your hard work! good luck with whatever you do!!!

  4. Indeed a sad day has dawned in the world of scanlation. Roankun, from the bottom of my heart, thank you very much for the dedication you have put into your scanlating throughout the years. You have brought many smiles to the readers’ faces, and it saddens us that you’re retiring. But all good things must come to an end. Have a good one. Thank you very much once again.

  5. Thank you for all your hard work over those years. Sad to to see you retire but it is not like I can’t understand it. Wish you all the best.

  6. Hey roankun! Though I only knew you for a short time during the Last Game joint, I’d like to thank you for your hard work with everything you’ve done so far. 3 years is a long time, and you’ve really done an awesome job. Best of luck with real life stuff and, really, thank you for everything you’ve contributed to the scanlation scene. o/


  7. Just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work over the 3 years. Always loved the projects that you had chosen to scanlate. Good luck for whatever you may do in the future.

  8. Hello Roankun. first sorry for my bad english, I’m truly grateful for all your hard work over those 3 years, I wish you the best luck in all your new challenges. 😀

  9. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you’ve put into everything! Wishing you all the best with whatever you do next!

  10. Thank you so much for all your dedication and for bringing us these series!!!

    I hope that whatever you pursue in your future brings you this much success and recognizition! 🙂

  11. Even though I’ve only been following you for about two of those years, I’m going to miss you a lot. ;_;

    Best of luck in your future endeavors, Roankun!

  12. Thanks for the chapters and thank for translating all that you have and for finishing the series that are complete. So you really going to retire now after saying it for so long. Thanks for staying as long as you did.

  13. Thanks for all the work. It was fun being able to read some of the series that you picked up.
    Good luck in the future.

  14. Thank you for all the hard work and dedication for the last 3 years! You can rest easy now that you know you’ve helped quite a few series get into the spotlight for an audience who never even knew the series existed.

  15. Damn. Something like this is always sad. I just read this on batoto, don’t know you or your subs, but still feels very bad. Like someone dieing.

    Thanks for your work and R.I.P in pieces …

    • Also I would like to add you didn’t waste 3 years of your life fucking scanlating . You know there are people out there wasting time working every day for 40 years straight and achieve fucking NOTHING.

      THIS is something good, something great.
      You did something meaningful with your scanlating and your time is definititely not wasted. You brought joy to people and made something that will likely stay over time.

      I really admire you. I don’t admire you for censoring your comments though. I don’t know why my comment is awaiting moderation.

      • lol, thanks. It feels heartfelt when the word fucking comes up. Sorry about the moderation thing; I never did figure out how to change wordpress’s settings. XD

      • rip in kill m8, rip in kill. may your services rest in pepperoni for years to come. rest in rip, and thank you.

  16. thanks for your hardwork!

    by the way, did anyone (from your staff) still want to scanlating Omaera Zenin Mendokusai? i could lend some help.

    • My typesetter said he’s okay with continuing it, but he’s gotten a bit bored. He likes the new girl though, so if you have a translator, he could help out with the redrawing and typesetting for a while. 🙂

  17. Thank you for all your hard work. It’s always a shame to see someone leave this industry. Good luck to your future endeavors.

  18. You son of a bitch.

    I told you what would happen if you dropped abnormal


    (seriously though, thanks for your work over the years)

    • Whoops. Can I request that a cute girl eat me? :3 lolol (sorry though. I couldn’t really stick around for the next 10 years waiting for a bi-yearly update from the author >_<)

  19. Thank your for your all your work; I especially appreciate the neat series you have introduced me to (your taste in series is impeccable). May your future endeavours shine ever brighter.

  20. I could just weep right now, literally, because I’ve followed you in the shadows since your first release. Seeing a name become inactive online is always very difficult for me. ;_;

    I wonder what’s up with the year 2015… I find out that tadanohito is retiring last week, then I read Darwin’s Game’s latest chap on Batoto and I see your announcement that you will be retiring as well. :[

    ‘If you have any sort of affection for them, you’ll learn to let them go’, as they say (as regretfully hard as it is)… so I hope that the great amount of karma you’ve stored from the work you’ve done for the leecher community will come to fruition in the following years to come.
    At the very least, thank you very much.

    • The fact that I actually know who tadanohito is makes me realize how much of a perv I really am, lol. I’m glad to hear I’ve done something useful in my life, at least somehow. Thanks!

  21. Thanks for all your hard work m8 and i really grateful cause manga was one of my escape to my shitty life…good luck IRL btw

  22. 3 years huh? Well I wish you luck~ It’s been awesome working with you!
    Paalam kaibigan~

    I guess now you have more time to continue those HaibaraXConan fanfics lol

  23. Thanks for all the hard work you’ve done for all of us. I really appreciate all the series you’ve been doing over the years and it’s going to be sad to not see roankun anymore. I wish you the best of luck in your life in anything you do. ^_^

  24. Thank you for taking out your own time and giving us such wonderful scans. I only know of your group from Darwin’s Game, but seriously you guys are great. That “Blazing Inforgenomer of Smithing” and all the other stuff you named LOL (best naming senses ever). Hope you have a fun and enjoyable life ^ ^.

  25. Thanks for all your hard work! From one (fugitive) translator to another (sorry gotta keep this anon or my group is gonna hunt me down…)

  26. Thanks a lot for your hard work, man. I’m only a sporadic reader, but when I found Abnormal Kei-Joshi I knew it was everything I didn’t know I wanted, and dear god was it ever glorious. Even including Darwin’s Game I haven’t been following that long, but I sincerely thank you for your time. Good luck IRL, and please don’t just quit being online, because from what I’ve read you’re a really funny person.

    Some recommendations as a farewell: Worm (and Pact) by wildbow, and The Zombie Knight by George Frost are incredible webnovels which you might enjoy reading. I’m willing to bet that your lists are far more expansive than mine, but if you’re ever looking for something specific just PM me 🙂 Or not because WordPress. Huh. Well, I’m on Disqus anyway :p

    • Thanks a lot too! Coincidentally, I was planning on reading Worm one of these days because someone mentioned how fucked up the characters were. 😀
      P.S. Don’t let appearances fool you. I’m actually a very boring person 😛

  27. You brought me Fujimi Lovers, which has given me great joy, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you considering we’ve never met.
