Could you give a summary for us of everything that happened then? Like why is Simca in a wheelchair?
hmm....tts gonna me a long one....but fine...i'll try to give as little details as possible...
after the big battle with behemoth, behemoth is disbanded, akira was taken away and rejoined the Wind special unit (u know, the police guys, agito/akito's brother...) Kogarasumaru thus has possession of the fang regalia...In these 2 volume, we are also introduced to the lightning king and his abilities...and oh yeah, Shimuka got a cute hair-cut too!! A massive turns of event led to shimuka deciding to let Ikki be the leader to the huge A.T organisation she built up with her own hands, the GENESIS (chinese translation said GENESYS, wonder why...), which has a total of 4 kings and abt 400 members, at the end of the volume... (note that they just wanted ikki to be the leader...ikki is of course still in Kogarasumaru)
shocked and confused all meshed into one, ikki ponders about whether to accepts the role. After much hesitation, he takes it but with conditions attached (of which i wont mention here...) Anyway, the next target of kogarasumaru is to get to "B" class and in this volume, they battled with an "interesting" E-class team... (although a sucky one) After that battle, they head to Kyoto in order to gain acceptance of the team "Trident", which is under GENESIS and the team the "Rumble king" is in, for ikki to be the leader. Coincidently, there's a school trip and then entire class went along...
volume 12 and above:
it seems "Trident" is not as simple as one might think...using different methods, the Rumble king, leader of "Trident", tested ikki's abilities (which suck)...After witnessing it, the Rumble king challenges ikki to a match of "devil 33" (again not to spoil u guys with the details)...Ikki failed at first, but after many trials, he managed to get through it using his grasps of the wing road... Amazing feat actually, since he managed to do it with an injured knee and still wearing the handy anchor, not to mention in front of hundreds/thousands spectators over the net...lol (Although it is a match, we see that the Rumble king is more like trying to train ikki in using his wing road...)
the next couple of chapters are where "tuners" (not sure what they are gonna be called in english yet) are introduced...they are a group of people with the ability to tune (hence then name) kings to their respective regalias so that they are able to bring out 100% of their potential (surprising method of tuning!! Hint: its Oh great! what do you think?) And we are also introduced to ikki's future tuner, Kururu, and ringo's tuner, Kanon... (there seems to be a trangle between kanon, ringo and ikki...)
btw, ikki ended up in the hospital coz of his injured knee and Sora is also in there coz he was attacked by someone in sleeping forest, for fear that he might assist in the making of a new sky king... Their special training thus begun in the hospital (Hint: something to do with panties...). Kazu is then left temporarily in-charge of Kogarasumaru and the team has to try and get to "B" class... Some cool shit about kazu happens during this time...
Oh, and to answer the question why shimuka was in a wheel-chair (dun think its permanent although her A.T skills will be affected), she was also attacked by sleeping forest and the water king's attack does some major damage...Ikki felt guilty coz just before she was attacked, she kinda met up with him and before they parted ikki said some pretty hurtful stuff without any intention of doing so...Thus we see ikki getting angry when he learnt of her plight later...Luckily, his future tuner, Kururu, managed to calm him down, at the same time it was at this moment that she decided to be ikki's tuner and re-make/revive the wind regalia...
we are then finally enlightened on what happened to the former sleeping forest team for the first time when shimuka regains her consciousness in the hospital after being attacked and are having flashbacks... It would seem that the stone king, Kiriku, betrayed the team in the past. he defeated sora and taken his wheels. Shimuka was then shown to have witnessed these happenings and it would seem that she was a tuner in the past, although it's still unsure of who she is helping to tune. Anyway, we are also shown for the first time that the wind regalia are actually the "Welcome to Nightmare" wheels that ikki has received from the fat old lady in volume 1.
Now, skipping a few chapters ahead, kogarasumaru finally managed to get to "B" class and thus gained the right to enter some kinda door and participate in a competition to the summit of the trophaeum tower where riders all over will be participating in. Later on, a conversation between shimuka and the apparent head of the tuner (who is also a doctor in the hospital) reveals that actually, ikki's knee has long recovered and they are were using it as an excuse to keep him in the hospital. They were saying something that his body in itself is special since during the fall, the impact is actually absorbed by his entire body instead of just his knee. (lol, he's the main character after all..special huh...) Ikki is also shown to have finally completed his special hospital training with sora and is hence discharged from the hospital.
chapter 130 and 131 stops at the first night after ikki is discharged and is about the progression of the love triangle between ringo, her tuner and ikki...kanon apparently is trying to mislead ikki into thinking that ringo, who's the leader of sleeping forest and the one who injured shimuka, is trying sabotage his A.T. Hearing this, ikki snatches his A.T and runs away. Angry and disheartened, ringo gave a slap to kanon before going to chase ikki. It was here that ringo realised that she is not able to catch up to him and after a few moments of reflection, she decides to awaken her "crazy apple" side. The final battle is finally underway!!
fine fine... maybe not the final battle, but definitely a big battle... the speculation would be that the final battle would be with kiriku, the former gem king...

I don't know since I have never done translations, but what takes the majority of the time when someone is working on a RAW. Do they want to get a very good copy of the RAW as opposed to just a good copy, is it hard to lift the japanese text from the RAW or what. I really wish I new japanese so that I could try my hand at it.

Be assured that I will not overwork my already way-to-stressed translator just so that a greedy leecher will get his AG-fix. Something you might want to know as well: Even IF we would catch up with the raws, we wouldn't give a damn about scanlating the magazine chapters anyway. We will release what is gathered in the books, simply for convinience - so don't get your hopes up and learn japanese if you are that much of an impatient idiot. Or just go and read your beloved Jinchuuriki releases...

I thought maybe it was just me but you are in fact just an immature dick, who must get off from being a tough guy online. I ask a harmless question and you just can't help yourself from being an ass, you ever think your translator might be stressed for other reasons if he has to interact with you.

You didn't say anything that would wake my interest in doing that - in fact - you actually said that you wish you knew japanese. Now where is there a point for me to critisize? Don't take everything that personal, in the deceitful english language, you can be used in singular and plural.
My mistake then, I don't know how much I can do but if you guys need any help from someone that doesn't speak or understand japanese let me know. I may be at work but I have a lot of free time on my hands doing nothing.
