So for me, down under in Australia, in the blazing hot weather, currently 32 degree’s celsius at 9am in the morning (Yep, not even the hot part of the day…), it is the last day of 2010.
Now, 2010, has been a pretty good year for Deadbeat-Scans. We’ve got more chapters done than our previous 2 years combined I would say. We’ve had our ups and downs throughout the year, Karate wasn’t going as smoothly as we’d have liked a few months ago, but we’re starting to pick back up again. But overall, the year has been pretty kind to us. We’ve released Karate chapters 24 through to 78 (todays release), Hanagata chapters 6-10, Shibatora 26-37, Peace Maker 12-20, about 2 or so Capeta volumes, and we’ve got to restart the manga that started this group in the first place, Rookies.
It might not be the hundreds of releases that some groups do, but I feel, the 100 or so chapters we’ve done, is a fairly respectable amount. We do some fairly tough mangas (It’s amazing that we’ve done 50+ chapters of Karate, considering how hard it is to redraw), so it’s a pretty good effort all around.
Our last release for this year, is everyone’s favourite manga, Karate. It’s a pretty awesome chapter, so I won’t hold you here much longer. As usual you can get it on our Forums or from our Irc Channel.
So with my closing words of 2010, I’d like to thank all the members of Deadbeat-Scans and members of our joint projects who have helped throughout the year. As obviously, we couldn’t have done it without you guys and girls putting in the effort in your own free time to get this stuff done. I hope we get many more new faces in the future to help out on our projects (and because I’m being stretched pretty thin over cleaning 3 projects!).
Hope everyone has a Happy New Year.
