Hi! We scan it the day the magazine is officially released in Japan. The korean group that translates has a contact in the magazine supply-chain (probably with the printer/delivery drivers) that get the scans up to 5 days before the magazine goes on sale in stores. This is why you usually see the Korean release 4-5 days earlier than what we can do; we haven't found someone willing to risk being arrested for early scans. The magazines usually have to get printed and shipped out a week in advance in order to be released simultaneously in stores all across Japan/Asia. This is how getting it earlier than street-release date is even possible.

 

Hello :).

 

Awesome.

 

So, if you had someone who knew Korean, technically you could release it even sooner.

 

What does your group do for this manga?  It seems like Turnip Farmers used to do all of the scans, but not it seems to be a joint effort...

 

Thanks.

How far ahead are the raws?... or are we caught up, and you scan them when they come out?

. Please look forward to more chapters of Kingdom and Magi in the future!

10% truth, 90% mudslinging & spin doctoring at me for daring to speak up against sense, oh well I expected that. I'd rather not get involved any further so here's your one @you and I won't respond to you further, the guy asked me a question so I gave him an answer, that's all.

I'm sorry you feel that way, but you're right; there's nothing to gain from continuing this over an event that's almost 3 years in the past that involves people that aren't affiliated with the groups or this series. I'm sorry you feel that Sense-Scans has it out for you but please know that it's nothing personal, we reacted aggressively to our project being stolen and our work being heavily 'critiqued' at the time. Our staff is extremely passionate about what they work on and how they do so. Please look forward to more chapters of Kingdom and Magi in the future!

Haha, you failed their cleaning test then tried to point out that their cleans were 'shit' on multiple releases. Then you started releasing one of their projects with a LQ group with Overly blurred/topazed cleans. Maybe give context for the comments aimed at you before sharing them with extremely biased views. Sorry to hear that you're still sour over that one experience.
Also for the record none of those members are involved with the group anymore, unsurprisingly scanlation group staff can change over a two year period.

Warning: drama / two comments of theirs I saved a screencap of.

Not sure what word you'd use to describe them tbh; Elitist? Arrogant? Something else?

Whatever the case, they make me a little sick whenever their name turns up.

Fuck I was wrong, but Kyoukai x Shin OTP

>"Let's keep Keisha's death a secret!"
>10 page long buildup
>Kanki calls in deus ex machima torturers

What was the point?

Knowing Kanki, I bet he would make a run around and attack Rigan city then use the citizens there to force Kisui surrenders.
The ones they tortured were probly villagers from villages around the battlefield just so he could know about Kisui's past.

I haven't seen anything from sense scans in other of my other series, is there a reason to be upset if it means a stable release schedule for Kingdom?

I hope that Kisui survives. He seems like a cool dude and a useful general to turn. 

 

Also, Kyoukai must be loving that whiplash from the high-speed pickup with gauntleted arms. 

Looks like the Turnip Farmers have gotten into bed with sense scans.

 

Disappointing.

That sounds about right. This is a great manga, but this isn't something you'd use to have a working knowledge of the history. Although truth be told, the vast majority of particulars for history are always going to be questionable. Even in today's world with all our sophisticated recording we usually have completely different accounts of an event, say for instance a football game, depending on the bias of the narrators/recappers.

 

So it's best not to worry about accuracy but instead especially for this manga just sit back and have fun! Personally, I am enjoying this greatly, and I think if it tried to be more accurate it would really lose a lot of what makes this so enjoyable to me.

And its not like little things like "facts" get in the way of how people tell a story (one Example would be the tv trope that Russia attacked Georgia first, despite that even the European union had to admit that this wasn't the case. Sadly facts have very little to do with propaganda and when one has an agenda they will repeat a lie often enough till people believe it.)

I wonder how deep a wound has to be for Shin to get scars.

Lol at Kyoukai...

 

"We're not invaders but we're the Hi Shin Unit"

....

 

.....

 

I mean whaaaa.... That's shounen logic right there... If only there was an invasion by a rabbit lady from outer space...

 

 

 

@The Runaway

 

I'm sorry I'll have to disagree with you...  

 

Note: Looking at the msgs here about spoilers, I'm adding spoiler tags to this comment.. But IMO I don't think the author will ever take the story as far (chronologically) as the info I've given here... Then again read at your own risk...

 

Spoiler
 

 

-To put it bluntly, only some characters (less than 10 imo) and the original concept (the king and his unification plan) are somewhat accurate.

-As for all the events and how they unfold, the gender of some characters, the background and goals of other important characters (from Qin, Wei and Zhou for the most part) and side characters (mostly presented as enemies), the author modified those for convenience and entertainment.

-The rest is just made up. Completely out of the author's imagination.

 

You can ask any user who knows about Chinese history if you want to confirm it.

Kingdom Chapter 473

 

All right, big news: we’re happy to announce that we’re now working with Sense Scans on Kingdom!

Hopefully this is going to solve the recent unreliability of our release dates. woo.

Since we’ll be releasing this as a joint, we’re abiding by Sense Scans wishes to delay Batoto releases for a week. We’ll be using their online reader instead.
