MindlessDrone Presents FMPA Chapter 07

It's been quite a while! 
I'm just here to drop an FMP release. 

Full Metal Panic! Another | Chapter07: Hurry Up and Finish!

Like I said before: we're closed. Sometimes however I find a bit of time and a free chunk of brain activity that allow me to work on a few pages. The problem is that's when I'm exhausted and bored so I work like a mindless drone. 
This chapter was done under that mode in one hour before I went to sleep. I knew if I stopped in the middle I wouldn't bother to finish it until about 2 or 3 months later so I made sure I finished it no matter how bad it is. At least you get to know what's going on.

I haven't read manga or checked mangaupdates in months so when I checked last night, I kind of expected that I'd find this and other titles we worked on picked up by other groups and then I'd just crawl back to bed. no luck! 
I did find out Asahinagu's been picked up by a new group a few weeks ago and that really made me happy. I loved that manga and we really wanted to continue it but we were under a translator curse or something. we just weren't lucky with finding translators. Anyway, I sure hope the new group'll keep on it. If you haven't read Asahinagu yet, you should start! 

So that's it. it'd be healthy to consider this release a miracle and not expect another one anytime soon.

Mass for Atropos

Oh it's been quite a while since our previous release! 
I'm here with a new chapter kicking off the second volume of Full Metal Panic Another. Sadly, the story is moving as slow as our releases. 

There's something regarding the translation that I only realized while working on this chapter. 
(I edited this chapter while listening to Gazpacho's Missa Atropos album, hence the post title >_< )

here's how the text get some Japanese to English! 
Japanese > Italian > French > English
The French team translates this title to French from the official Italian version then Hunk translates it from French to English! 

I don't know Japanese so I can't tell how much accuracy is lost in the process. Personally, I've come to believe that accuracy in translation is a bit overrated. 

Anyways, at least today you get to read a new FMPA chapter after 5 months! 

Full Metal Panic Another
Chapter 05:

Next chapter of this will probably take another 3 or 4 months >_< 

Here's another Kokushi Musou chapter. 

A new manga titled Fire Punch seems interesting. check it out. 

til next release!

The Sun Still Rises... every once in a while!

Mozuku, Walking!! 
Chapter 10: Stray Dalmatian

to answer few questions, I contacted FMPA's translator. chapter 5 will probably be released next week thus concluding volume 1. As for the next Tamami chapter, I don't think I can finish it anytime soon but I'm not closing the door on it. I also contacted Tenshi's translator and he's doing other stuff now so there won't be any releases. I'm currently working on Mokke chapter 15. (maybe I'll work on chapter 6 after that).

My priority is to complete Mokke. As I have said before, Manga Syndrome is to be considered closed but the fact remains that I can release one chapter of Mokke in a month or two. Maybe some other releases from other translators too but those are not my priority.
