So it’s a sad day, but it probably had to finally occur. As many of you may know, Karate has 50 volumes in the entire series (Not including it’s sequel/spin off). We’ve been doing this series for almost 5 years now, and we’re at volume 19. At the current time, we’re certainly not at the peak of our group. So continuing on with a series, that has redraws almost every single page (and not simple ones at that), is going to be a huge struggle. We struggle to get out one release per week at the moment, and it’s a large toll on our cleaner who has to do the job solo. And well, can we expect him to do this for another 6 years? Probably a bit unfair.
So sadly, we’ve had to make the choice. We have always tried to bring the highest quality scanslations to our readers in the past. Even if we don’t have the most popular series, we take pride in the fact WE enjoy our series and want to do this. But especially with some of the last chapters being so redraw heavy, and I’m sure to be just as bad in the future, we’ve made the decision to not do redrawing for Karate. Almost all the redraws in chapters of Karate from now on, will be covered with a white box and the text put over that. We’ll leave it up to you to decide how well it works, but it’s a hell of a lot less work than before.
For our remaining series, life will continue on like usual. We’ll still be giving you the HQ scanslations we have provided in the past. These series don’t have anywhere near as many redraws as Karate, so we can afford to put in the extra time to polish it up.
