Birthday Gift

Wewt wewt.


I'm 23 today, it was just Memorial Day yesterday, and we have 3 chapters for you (and Mahou-X will probably follow up with the next 3 so it's 6 for you lucky folks!).

Enjoy!

I'm in a reflective mood tonight, so I'm going to reflect on what's happened with Yankee Goon since we began to help scanlate this manga. Cue the wavy water transition and the harp sound effect. It seems like forever ago, but we first uploaded our translations with chapter 63, on the 23rd of December, 2009. That's about a year and five months ago. Since then we and Mahou-X have managed to reach chapter 145! That's 82 chapters as of this posting - 82 chapters in 73 weeks, about 1.12 chapters a week. So we do in fact release a bit faster than the weekly chapters!

With the manga ending at 211, that means there's 66 chapters left. And, at a rate of about 1.12 chapters a week, that's about 59 more weeks. Sure it sounds like a lot, but hey, that means you'll have new Yankee-Kun every week (or ... 6 every month, depending on whether or not one group or the other gets tied up in REAL LIFE SHIT), for more than another year or thereabouts. We'll be able to "delay" the "end" of the manga (in English at least) for that long, so that's nice. And considering it was only first picked up for scanlations about a year after it had already been serialized, you really can't fault those of us who picked it up after it had already started.

Anyways, it's been a lot of work, but super rewarding. I'm looking forward to finishing working on YK&MC and to further collaborations with Mahou-X.

EDIT: Shit. I meant to introspect and say profound words about my experience so far as Chief Editor / Head Sorta Guy of YG, but, being a math/science kind of fella I ended up writing a report instead. D:

EDIT2: Woops. Stoichiometry fail. 66 chapters /1.12 chapters/week = 59 weeks. Haha.

  3. "With the manga ending at 211, that means there's 66 chapters left. And, at a rate of about 1.12 chapters a week, that's about 73 more weeks."

    66 chapters with pace of 1.12 ch/week gives us 59 weeks, not 73. 'Math/science kind of fella', huh?:D

    Anyway thx a bunch for all your work. Hope before you get to the end there will be some extra ch to wrap things up properly, because from what I read in spoilers so far the ending is teh shit...

    I have a suggestion. Why not doing Barakamon next? Bliss is doing them but it feels like they have banished it into eternal oblivion :S

  16. @Anon: How can you possibly multiply 66 by a number greater than 1 and get a smaller number?? Put it into a calculator!

  19. You've used the wrong operator, DrSunshine. In this instance you want to divide(number of chapters by frequency), not multiply.

    But I just wanted to say happy birthday, and thank you again for all your hard work to all involved.
