Himizu 26, KSKM 207 and End of Shibatora

Hey all,
So we’ve got 4 chapters for all today. Starting off, we’ve got new chapters of Himizu and Karate. So grab those!
Next, we, Deadbeat-Scans, have finally finished a manga. Huzzah! Shibatora is the very first manga we have completed (and from start to end no less). We’re releasing both 130 and 131 at the same time. While 130 closes off the end of the manga, 131 is a little bonus chapter that sits at the end. So we thought it would be best to release them both at the same time.
Now most of my thoughts are in the pre-chapter credits page for Chapter 131. Give them a read, as there’s a lot of important people to thank.
But really, I’ll just put a very broad thanks to everyone who ever worked on the project, as well as those who supported and enjoyed Shibatora throughout the years. I believe it’s a huge accomplishment we’ve achieved, and it’s only thanks to everyone who’s been involved that we made it.
So thanks everyone!

Please enjoy the final chapters of Shibatora, and you can get all 4 chapters released today from our Forums or our Irc Channel.

    Now that Sibatora is finished can you guys please increase the pace of releasing capeta? 🙁 its too darn slow maybe shift a few shiba scantilators to capeta?

  9. Masa Reply

    sorry for the slow pace of Capeta release. It’s mostly due to the slow, lazy translator Masa = Me. I’ll do my best to translate it faster.

    ah, I forgot to tell you this… Congratulations to the completion of Shibatora, dear all DB staff!

    Now that Shibatora is finished will you start giving ROOKIES more attention? It’s such a great series that it would be nice to see it released at a faster pace.

    Great job regardless!

    @ Teo: someone2040 might know more about this, but as you know, Rookies is a joint with Illuminati. Releases for this depend on them.

  17. Bada Reply

    Yes, with Capeta released – more time spent on Rookies would be awesome! I’m not sure how joint projects work though…

    Hi Guys,
    About our other projects. It’s really not as simple as “Oh, we’ve finished off one project, we can focus our efforts on other projects now”.
    In general, each project has different people working on them. So any hold ups are due to that. We can’t just throw more people at them and expect them to come out faster, because usually it’s a critical element that holds things up (And critical elements are generally the ones that are hard to find more help for).
    So while I understand you guys want more of your favourite projects, it’s not necessarily feasible without getting the right people to help out.

    Awesome guys.

    I don’t even remember when did you guys started it, (shibatora) but it’s probably more than 4 years (I still need to finish it).

    Thank you so much for being consistent with Himizu, I really appreciate it.

    THANK YOU FOR CONTINUING HIMIZU. I just got into it and googled you guys just to say thanks.

    congrats on shibatora, it’s been a great manga & thanks for karate and himizu(even if I don’t read it)

    You can take your time with Himizu, it wasn’t even that long since the last chapter, you guys made me and many others happy just by picking it up.
    Also, while I haven’t started to read Shibatora yet, I think it’s admirable that you scanlated such a long manga from the beginning to the end, kudos to you.
