As everyone should know by now, Umineko is now licensed by Yen Press, so we have a few things to discuss here and I want everyone’s opinion, so let the new chapter downloading and proceed to read the big text under the links:
I imagine some people are now automatically assuming that we will give up on umineko because it’s licensed now, but such thing won’t happen.
First of all, only the episodes 1-4 are licensed, so we are ok to continue the Chiru chapters, and since we’ve finished episodes 1, 2 and 4 BEFORE they license it there’s no problem and I won’t need to delete it all for now (but that’s just my guess, so if anyone here knows anythin about it please let me know). People suggested us to modify the filenames and I’m doing it from now on and still thinking what to do about the old chapters.
If you’re curious about what we’re going to do when we finish each episode 3 chapter from no on, te chapters won’t be released here (but sure I will still make a release post so the blog followers will know about the release, just the links wont be here).
Michelle, one of our typesetters, said that we should include a “buy the manga in english, support the author!” page, and I really liked and will do it starting in the next chapter.
Just a litle word about Episodes 6 and 8 now: no, the translators didn’t die, but both are busy working and, oh, yes, we have a episode 8 translator… I’m almost sure we will have to wait until june/july to see more Episode 6 chapters, but I think I can wait since episode 3 is the real problem here. Same for Episode 8. We always have more time to release when june starts, so it’s ok.
I don’t remember anything more now so i’ll just end it here, but I’ll be waiting to know your opinion, so please don’t forget to comment if you think you an help or want to ay something about it.
