Come! Linebarrel!

Welcome to the SMG Scanlation release blog!  It will contain all of our releases (searchable and will also be identified with the “release” tag) as well as many other assets related to the work of scanlating.  Our current release schedule is once a week whenever, so check back every once in a while to get a peek at what we’re doing!

Thirty-four pages, three days.


At a pace of ten pages per day (typesetting’s a bitch) I can push out one of these a week. Enjoy!0003000400050006img_001img_002img_003img_004img_005img_006img_007img_008img_009img_010img_011img_012img_013img_014img_015img_016_017img_018img_019img_020img_021img_022img_023img_024img_025img_026img_027img_028img_029img_030img_031img_032img_033img_034img_035img_036img_037img_038img_039img_040img_041img_042img_043img_044img_045img_046img_047img_048img_049img_050img_051img_052img_053img_054img_055img_056img_057img_058img_059img_060img_061


Here is the script for volume 25, it’s finally over!


Linebarrels of Iron, vol.24!


This is just the script, note than all things in brackets are comments (or me venting). Note that sound effects, unless important, are not translated because sound effects are usually not translated… (For example BAM/ばん is usually not written for a door closing, or smile/smirk/にやり when a character is smiling. Call it redundant.)

As to how this script should be interpreted, each line break represents the next bubble, skipping bubbles with no lines (ellipses-only and the like). The script is also not edited, so be careful of spelling errors or brain farts in word choice.

SMG will not personally typeset this script; the typesetter has a life and I will not spend the time to do it. This is free for anyone to do themselves, though you should probably leave a comment here and try to gather a group of people to help you (450 pages between Vol.24 and 25 are a lot.) If possible, try to give SMG credit, but I don’t really care.

Final note, most of this script was written with the premise that the old typesetter would work on it, so it might contain memes and jokes that some of you find uncomfortable. I’m too lazy to go back and change them but if you see things like “KISAMA-TACHI (You bastards)” or “HAAAAAAAAAAYAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSEEEEEEEE” I ask you to use your best judgement in that I’m not asking you to typeset “kisama-tachi” or “Hayase with 15 A’s and 10 E’s” into the page. The script for 25 will be void of these things.

I’m going to go work on 25 now. Have fun.



Maybe I should go buy last month’s issue… I have 1 week to decide before this month’s come out, but all that paper.
