Seeing you upload here I can only extend my gratitude to LOLScans for I am but just a leecher.
Thank you for sharing you sweat and Kaiji Sensei's work with us.

Thank you LOLScans

we're not even earning from doing this and we don't plan to, thus, we can't call it business. we volunteered to do it and we wish for our hard work to be released as how we want it to be... that's the only reason we don't want to rely on other reader platforms...and for a much bigger reason such as, one of my admins actually created an online reader that works perfectly. We have only started asking for donations last month, mostly for buying raws and help on paying the server... since everything is paid by the admins that volunteers to.... so yup. we have no plans on selling our works either~ 

Sorry, I tend to get bothered by people who set up private web servers, and then release only there, because that usually means somebody is trying to make money from scanlation. We're illegal enough as it is.

Your business, I suppose.  Scanlation for me is a hobby, not a business.  I release to Batoto, and only Batoto, and I don't really care what the pirate web sites do, beyond the fact that they may attract the attention of the authorities.  Scanlation is a gray enough area as it is, and doing it for money makes for a still darker shade of gray, at least as far as I'm concerned.

We must remove the bullet!

No, you need to suture the arteries. Did you even do that, or do all manga characters think removing the bullet removes the wound?

we are also slowly going to completely stop releasing in bato.to due to other platforms reuploading our releases and not updating it whenever there's a correction or new version. We have a dedicated reader working anyway... we will only use bato.to from now on to give new projects a chance to breath out to more readers.

If you are going to do that, then at least post a new chapter notification on Manga Updates at the time you put the new chapter up on your web site.  Though for legal reasons they won't host a link to your web site, they would at least show you as the ones doing the release, and Google takes care of the rest.

There's already someone from Manga Updates that joined our forum who updates the releases there... was contacted by them since last year.

We would like to make an official announcement that we will now be putting a 1 month delay on all of chapter releases here in bato.to... Fast release exclusively only for our reader. If you guys wish to read ahead of everyone, you may create an account in our forum and access our reader through there. Thank you! :)

Five chapters in three months.  That's more than anybody's done on this series in over three years.   And well done chapters at that.  Three cheers to LOLScans!

Yes! Its back! One of the best series to grace the net! I need to know what happens after the anime!

Funny how nobody's said "boo!" here these past few chapters.  We don't want LOLScans walking away this from lack of apparent interest, do we?  I've looked through the remainder of this volume, and can say we have a few shocks and a few "wow!" moments coming.

Maybe there will be a few "wow" comments when the next chapter will get upped here as well. Anyway I take this chance to thank LOLScans for their work, please keep it up!

Thank you very much LOLScans

We wanted to release weekly if it was possible but, there were a lot of clarifications needed as we have been comparing the french version with the japanese... we are currently translating this from the french raws, and there were some parts that were iffy that had to be checked by a japanese translator. There were some mistranslations found from the french raws itself so, we couldn't really pump out as much as we wanted.

I just took delivery today of the entire series in Japanese.  If you have questions regarding the original Japanese, I can probably answer them if necessary.

 

My wife is accustomed to me getting random packages from Amazon JP, delivered by DHL, but this was far the heaviest box I've received to date.  It is also the first, I think, where the shipping was only a small part of the total cost (about 10%).

It's been a month already...

 

Forty-three volumes!?  That's one heavy set of books.  That would normally be about $5 per volume (plus shipping), but even counting international shipping the whole lot of them can be ordered from Amazon JP for $85, which works out to only $2 apiece.

With this said, we might be forced to change our frequency in releasing this project.

@Amplify, thank you for the offer but we're all set already... :)

Would you like my cleans of this for the next 15 chapters?

 

Guess not, oh well.

for every twice a month xD

FWIW, this manga would fall within the category of alternate history.  Another such story, which started as a multiple volume novel but was adapted to anime and to manga, was "The Deep Blue Fleet".  Because I have a fondness for such fiction, I found and bought the first two volumes of the original story, and have done a (very) little bit of translating it.  The opening scene has Admiral Yamamoto waking up in sick-bay after having been shot down over Bougainville in 1943, but not in 1943 but rather about forty years earlier.  What's more, he isn't his older self, but now his younger self with all his older memories.  The story follows how he, with future knowledge, manages to direct Japan behind the scenes so that it would not lose World War II.  The story is a fantasy for those who are still stinging from losing the war, but it is not a revenge fantasy.  Though it has been said that the story is every bit as racist against Westerners as Westerners were against Japanese during the time of the war.
 
The opening. Behind the spoiler tag only because it's relatively large.

Spoiler


FWIW, "Takano" was Yamamoto's surname before he was adopted into the Yamamoto family. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isoroku_Yamamoto#Family_background and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isoroku_Yamamoto#Alternate_History.

Well this is a pleasant surprise
