Next Release Will Be Delayed

July 26, 2017 1 comment

Since there’s only about 10 chapters left, I’m going to power through with translating them first before I work on the rest of the scanlating process.  The next release will be delayed by a few weeks, but the chapters after should come rolling out faster than before.  Stay tuned!

Hiatus Again

May 25, 2016 9 comments

I will most likely be losing my job in the next few months.  I need to focus my time and energy on finding a new job, so I won’t be releasing any new chapters until then.

Going on another hiatus

December 9, 2015 8 comments

Sorry for the lack of updates lately.  My baby daughter just started walking a few weeks ago, and it’s been crazy.  I was able to keep her in a play pen while I worked, and I can scanlate when I have some free time.  Now I can’t even do my day job without distraction.  I won’t be able to continue until she can walk more steadily and can entertain herself without my supervision.  Best case scenario, it’ll be a month or so.  Worse case, might be a year.

Need Help Finding Raws Again

September 24, 2015 7 comments

I didn’t realize the raws I downloaded previously for Bartender Vol. 18 is very… poorly done.  I tried to find better versions of it, but that was the only scanned raw I can find (multiple sites are hosting the same one).  I can continue to translate and release with these raws, but I would rather not.  Here’s an example:


I’m not skilled enough to properly fix the images.

Can’t Find Bartender Volume 17-21 Chinese Translation online

March 25, 2015 4 comments

Have some bad news. I’ve been translating this manga from Chinese to English, and the Chinese version for volumes 1-16 can be easily found online.  However, it seems nobody uploaded the rest of this series.  I did find the raws in pretty good quality, so at least that’s half the battle.  I do have the physical copies of volumes 17-21 in Chinese, but they are kept at my parents’ house.  The earliest I can get it is probably a month from now.  If someone can somehow find the Chinese version online, then I can start sooner.

Sorry about that.

Update (4/14/15): I will be getting volumes 17-21 on 4/25/14.  I should have a chapter ready a week from then.

Update (4/25/15): I just received volumes 17-21. I will start translating again sometime next week.

Quick Update – Project finished (sorta), will be posting again shortly

Sorry for the late post, but I’ve decided to take some time off of this project.  I’ve actually been working on something else over the past year in conjunction with translating Bartender.  This other project is personal, but it’s something I’ve always wanted to do.  It’s taking longer than expected to finish, and so I’ve decided to focus more time on it than before.  I’ve also adopted a dog in the past year, which adds to the amount of things I have to do on a daily basis.  Rather than splitting my time thinly on these different things, I think it will be best for me to put off translation on hold.  I don’t know for how long, but I will probably come back to it once my other project is finished.  Give or take a month or two.  If no one else begins to translate Bartender at that time, then I will continue on.

Thanks for all the support everyone has given me throughout the years.  I hope I can continue to translate, if not Bartender, then some other mangas that everyone can enjoy.
