So finally, Karate 140 is done. This chapter took forever.
Now, partly due to this, we do have an announcement around Karate. We are no longer going to focus on doing this manga in HQ. We just don’t have the cleaning resource to do this anymore. We have 1 extremely talented cleaner on this series, and a few who have just started out. But it’s just too much to handle for 1 guy to be doing most of the work every week. Also, we do have lives, pretty busy lives I may add.
So yeah, basically, we’re unfortunately not going to be doing HQ cleaning anymore. We are currently looking through our options to speed up our cleaning process while trying to make the cleans look fairly ok. I’m sure you guys will see what it looks like in the coming weeks.
What this does mean though is we can hopefully speed up releases of the manga. We’re not going to nail down a ‘release schedule’ perse yet, but we do hope to get more than 1 a week out so we can start making up some ground on catching up to where Japan is (Light years ahead of us at the moment!).
So yeah, with this closing out volume 13 we decided to finish this chapter in HQ before moving onto LQ.
