Alizion-Manga is now scanlating shaman king.
As the title says, we at Alizion-Manga have desided to pick up shaman king, aswell as naruto which we were already doing.
The reason as group leader i finaly desided to pick up the series is beacuse, A: it my favorite series ever :P, and B: its being scanlated painfully slowly by manga rain.
We will be starting from chapter 173 since 172 just came out.
Since the group is currently so new, we only have 6 people working on naruto and now shaman king chapters, only two of those being editors, so for now untill the group grows in size we will be releaseing chapters every 2-3 weeks, which is still faster then manga rain lol.
Once the group gets bigger however i hope that we can be releaseing chapters weekly. I have every chapter and side story in french so there's no worrys of finding raws or translators for that matter since the raws are in french, so i can translate them personaly.
If you are interested in joining Alizion-Manga, to work on either naruto or shaman king, then please go to are forum FORUM LINK and post in the "join Alizion-Manga" section about what position(s) you would like to do.
Currently we are in need of more editors, so all editors are more then welcome to join, aswell as everyone else .
You are going to get reped by Shaza and the rest for a post like that.
For some reason pointing out that they are slow is a cardinal sin on this board.
I'd rather say that complaining that they're slow is wrong, pointing it out isn't (hell, they point it out themselves sometimes.)
Anyway, good luck guys.
does this mean i have to read it now... crap...
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

They are slow just as slow as snoopy cool with ippo, they realese every month or 2... sometimes -.-
regardless, faster releases means more shaman king, and I don't see how that can be a bad thing.
Its not my thing to say anything.
And second of all, if you guys dont notice, Manga-rain releases SK every month. We didnt do volume 20 scanslations, but we released like almost 60 PAGES of specials. So I dont know what you are talking about in us being slow, quite seriously. Is it my fault people dont take the extra chapters that are just as important. I guess thats the last time I spend 20 dollars on a fanbook just to scanslate it everyone (which I thought it was important since even JAPANESE RAWS are not available in HQ for those chapters). We also release our scanslations AS SOON as we get our translations, which is why Volume 19 was released in a huge 9 chapter batch. perhaps we should now spread like 2 chapters out every month like every other group does. Im sure if we released one chapter of SK every 2 weeks instead of all at once no one would complain.
Please just make sure, as an advice, that when you translate SK, especially the OR that you use Japanese translators and not Chinese etc. Double translations mess up the poem and the words of beauty in this series. ^_^ so ya my luck to you!
P.S. It's not a cardinal sin. Im just tired of people complaining of things they have never understood, not only for manga-rain but for ANY scanslation group really. If you are so worried about slow releases why dont you help translate with us? I mean really >_> we try our best, and it makes me mad that our 6 hours of editing some of these chapters, and translations that I take very seriously, go "unnoticed" and just "complained" by you guys. I also get mad that no one really wanted to pick up the series until Shaman King "became popular". We worked our way quickly up to volume 19, me knowing full well that thats where everything got good, now that everything is at the climax, everyone is all interested.

You guys are great. Can't wait to read more SK. You've already translated ch173 as I can see from you forum.
Keep up the good work
More good news everyone, the raws one of our editors Karyuu found, are in such good quality that they need very little to no editing atall.
What does this mean? well it pretty much means that we will be putting out new finished chapter weekly (2 weeks at the very most), one chapter shouldn't take more then a week, but if it does i'll warn you first and tell you why. Most likely any delays would be beacuse a chapter has alot of redrawing, which takes some time, about 3-4 hours per page, and with 20 pages to do, that time adds up.
We officaly start scanlating the series tommorow (though some have already started ), so there should be a chapter release sometime around next sunday or monday, but since this is the first chapter we'll be doing it might take longer, who knows.
Well the chapter is finished, in all it only took 7 hours to take it from raw to finished scanlation, it wont be released untill wednesdayish, beacuse i translated it from french, so im getting one of the translators to translate the japanese script so i can make sure the french one is acurate.
