Dear readers,

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Unfortunately, we at Forgotten Scans have been dealing with death and heartbreak. Please do send us some nice vibes if you can :)

Today, we’re releasing an extra of Black Dog, another chapter of TRAP, and a chapter from one of our new series, Psychometrer Eiji! It’s a classic shounen manga about a detective with supernatural powers. Do check it out, and hopefully you’ll like it!

We’re always recruiting! Visit our recruitment page to learn how to join us. We especially need translators and editors. Don’t forget to stop by the forum, have a friendly chat with the staff, and leave a comment if you liked the release!

A huge thanks this week to Schombert, Shally, Fishiiie, Kumanzzz, Genxlegacy, Gracie, the MRS staff, and our wonderful release administrator, Harllama, for working on today’s releases! Have a good week, everyone!

Yours Truly,

Flowersofmoe and the FoS Staff

Oh My Dog

Dear readers,

Forgive me for today’s release title. I was asking someone else to help me, and all they could say was “Oh my gawd”. And thus I thought of Oh My Dog.

Today we’re releasing Mathematical Girls — Fermat’s Last Theorem, and Black Dog (in case you haven’t already guessed from the title)! Fermat’s Last Theorem, in case any of you have forgotten, is a continuation of the Mathematical Girls series. This time, we’re doing this joint with Eastern Atelier, DKThias Scanlation, and Norway Scan. Check out their websites!

We’re always recruiting! Visit our recruitment page to learn more. Also, don’t forget to stop by the forum, chat with the staff, and leave a comment if you liked the release!

A huge thanks this week to Schombert, RadioactiveKitty, Yokoai, Jehsi, Eruchan, Saiyaku, Recongriffin, DKThias, Volandum, and Harllama for today’s release. Have a refreshing weekend, everyone!

Yours Truly,

Flowersofmoe and the tired FoS Staff (who really need more people to join…)

Dogged Determination

Dear readers,

In return for today’s chapters, let me rant.

Today, I downloaded the chapters and I was checking for any mistakes. Usually, this process is pretty smooth, but wait! In Black Dog, there was a redraw that needed to be fixed. 40 minutes later, the redraw was fixed. I went onto the next page, and voila, missing translation. I pm’ed a translator, typesetted the translation, and proceeded to check through the rest of the chapter and finally convert everything to a PNG format using batch commands in Photoshop. But my batch command didn’t work! After some experimentation, the files were finally converted to PNG and renamed. My misery didn’t end here, though. The title page was missing! I quickly cleaned it, then renamed the files once again. I went through the same process for Kochikame, then comic tagged the files. Some of you may know that we have a release administrator, Harllama, who uploads the files to the our reader, Batoto, and other places. However, she wasn’t here today! So I struggled through the process of uploading chapters everywhere. (A large thank you to Radioactivekitty, our former admin, for creating a wonderful release guide.) And after 3 hours of hard work, here are the chapters.

So, you see, dear reader, we desperately need you. Learn how you can save our sanity by clicking here.  Visit our forum, chat with the staff, and leave a message of support for all of our staff during this tough time known as finals season.

And finally, a large thank you to Schombert, Midnight Dreamer, Jehsi, Chutney, Matsumo, Vigorous Jammer, Yokoai, and Inkfingers for helping with this release! Have a good weekend, everyone!

Yours Truly,

Flowersofmoe and the FoS Staff

Happy Birthday to the Hime!

Hey y’all,
I’ll try and keep it short(er) because I have a good amount of homework to do tonight. First of all, a late happy birthday to our one and only Hime! Her birthday was on the 31st of August. If you want to learn more about our Hime, please check her page here.

We’re releasing three new chapters today, and a chapter of Doraemon and Full Ahead! Coco each will be re-released tomorrow. The reason that the release has been split into two is because we need more people to help. Hint hint: this is where you come in, dear reader. Learn more here. As for today, we have new chapters of Black Dog, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu, and Mathematical Girls.

Something else that you (yes, you) can do for us is to visit our chat and forum and leave comments if you liked the release. Please let us know if there are any issues with the chapters, such as missing pages or translations and such.

Till the next time when I have enough time to do a release,
Flowersofmoe and the FoS Staff

Black Friday

Hello everyone!

We have two new releases this week (as usual): Black Dog and Doraemon! I know that there are many fans of Black Dog, so hopefully you guys will like this week’s chapter.

Some of you may have noticed that we were hoping to re-release two chapters of TRAP today, due to name conflicts. However, that has been pushed to next week because of a lack of time on my part. We were also hoping to release a chapter of Renchi na Himoto this week, but that has been set aside for next week.

And as always, we’re recruiting! Check out our recruitment page here. Visit the forum and chat with us to get to know us a little better, and leave a comment if you liked the release! Let us know which series you’d like to see more often~

Well then, we’ll see you next week!

Cheers,

Flowersofmoe and the FoS Staff

Hey everyone!  Today I am pleased to release several new chapters!  We have chapter 12 of Black Dog, chapter 70 of Hell Teacher Nube, chapter 85 of Full Ahead! Coco, and... to even my own surprise... chapter 12 of Atashin'Chi!  

Atashin'Chi was placed on indefinite hiatus a while back when we finally realized that the translator working on it probably wouldn't be returning anytime soon.  Then a few days ago I was contacted by one of my editors who expressed interest in translating it.  Captain Crunch and her friend Jien had actually already completed the translation for the chapter - she just wanted to ask that I bring it back from hiatus!  So here we are, after so long, releasing a chapter of a project that I thought would be on hiatus forever *_*.

For those of you who wonder what took us so long to release another chapter of Black Dog, I assure the reason isn't because we love to take random breaks for a month or two >_>.  The real reason is that one of our staff members took a vacation (and actually enjoyed the trip while taking a break from manga work like some of us fail to be able to do LOL).

I know what you are thinking...why does this group release so many chapters over the period of a few weeks but then enter into a cycle where releases are so devoid of variety?  I can only reason that this is simply the effect of staff in the group having cycles of productivity and non-productivity.  FoS does not hold back chapters for any sort of multi-chapter release.  Rather, chapters are "scheduled" for estimated release days that always lands on a Friday/Saturday time frame.  We cannot force any of our staff to work when they don't feel like it, so these normal cycles are just something that all of us have to cope with.  I am hopeful that over time things will even out, but because some steps of the process must be completed prior to other steps and because I am lenient with how long staff members have to take to complete their work, this situation is unavoidable in most cases.  However, on the bright side, FoS is in a cycle of consistently large releases... let's hope that it stays that way for a while :'D

About Baka to Test... I know that the project hasn't seen a release for months, but I am pleased to tell you that a new translator has been secured and that work is progressing well on the next chapter!  She is new to  translating, but I have confidence in her ability to continue work on this project where the past translator left off.  Thank you for your patience!

And now to the releases...
