Guess what folks, it is time yet again to join up with Guts in the latest chapter by our Mangaka God Miura! We proudly present to you the english translation of Berserk, Chapter 266 which concludes Volume 30.
Please note that the volume 30 set is not the official volume release from Japan, this is a compiliation of EG’s scanlations.
We are still going strong, and you all should look forward for more Zetman releases coming soon.
Happy Holidays to everyone out there in the world from us at EG.

Yes, the chapters for the end of volume 3 are now released. I must apologise for the week delay, I had some complications with my Internet. Below are the BT downloads:
Hope you enjoy these new releases. Sorry, but no Angel Heart. I’m simply too busy lately to work on it. We are still looking for Chinese/Japanese to English translators that are interested in joining Evil_Genius. Please contact via PM Nazgul, Laik, or myself (Eldo) on either the forums or IRC channel if you’re interested to help. With your help, we could make more constant and speedy releases, and also new projects could be started on. Your help is very much appreciated.
I hope you’ve all updated your bookmarks and accessed this page via the link www.evil-genius.us. There will be neon signs posted in the forums and stuff, heh.

We have 3 new releases today, Zetman chapters 36 and 37 are released along with Angel Heart chapter 39. Get ’em here:
All I can say is that we are kicking ass and taking names, many people have come forward to offer assistance in terms of translation and manga editing, however we are still welcoming those who want to help out. Feel free to comment below and let us know about you.
As we become more and more popular, keeping Mindwerks.Net (hoster of many EG services) is getting more expensive. Have NO fear, I will continue to host it out of my pocket, however I was encouraged by EG members and my wife *grin* to setup a way take donations.
Below you on the bottom right hand side is a donation button leading to paypal, it is the only method of donation I can come up with at this point, however I’ve used pal for past couple of years. All donations are considered gifts, and will be used to pay the bills and even upgrade equipment as needed.
If you wish to get special representation for your donation, head on over to the Mindwerks Forums and create yourself an account there. Poke around, meet the folks of EG, Mindwerks, and other fans, leechers and crazies. Once there and logged in, you can donate via the menu at the top, you will be listed among those who have donated.
Just wanted to say thank you to all those who have donated already, either in time and in gifts. You guys are truly appreciated and it is great ot have fans like that.

I wanted to do this project a while ago, but couldn’t get around to it. I guess with the release of the anime, it seems like the best time to bring this relatively unknown manga to light. This is my own project, that I’ve picked up from after the prior scanlator dropped it, I may or may not start from the beginning depending on how much time I have.
For those of you who don’t know what Angel Heart is, it is considered the sequel to Ciy Hunter, however, set in an alternate future, where some of the character’s histories are completely rewritten, in which Kaori Makimura is dead and her heart transplanted to a ruthless female assassin. The quote below contains more information.
A young Taiwanese assassin codenamed “Glass Heart” committed suicide by jumping off a building, and her heart was pierced by metal fence. Miraculously, her life was saved by heart transplantation. During her recovery she began to experience strange dreams, which led her to Japan looking for the donor of her heart, who happens to be Kaori Makimura, former partner of City Hunter.
It’s safe to say that if you enjoyed City Hunter, Angel Heart should be tailor made for you.

There are certain things you expect from us that are reasonable, translated Berserk chapters as they appear in Young Animal, quality translations and meticulous editing. We promise all of you that no matter what, we will always stay true to our roots and continue scanlating Berserk even to the detriment of our other releases. Berserk will always have priority.
Evil_Genius tries very hard to make frequent and consistent releases to provide you with the chapters and to ensure you recieve the highest quality as possible. However, it is very hard to maintain this pace as we have other real life commitments to fulfill and with more staff it will help ease our workload substancially. Without the support of more staff, our releases would be rather sluggish and trust me, none of us wants that to happen. We are looking for more staff to work on our projects to guarantee that we can make regularly updates as well as provide more manga projects for more people to enjoy. If you’re interested, drop a PM to Nazgul ([Orochimaru]), Laik, or myself (Eldo). We are in dire need for translators and editors.
We need Chinese/Japanese to English translators who are interested in joining Evil_Genius. No experience in translating manga is necessary, just able to dedicate some time to translating manga. We can provide help if you’re stuck in some parts in your translation script.
Also, we need editors for editing the mangas from the raw to its final product. Again, no experience in editing manga is necessary, but it is most perferred. Send one or more (three is plenty) of sample pages of your edited work on a manga along with the raw in its original format attached to your PM. You must be able to edit stroked texts that are covering the background and replace it with the English script. Redrawing skills, however minor it is, are needed for the stroked texts. A sample of editing the stroked text in a manga page attached to the PM will mostly be all that’s needed.
If you think you could meet the criterias as stated above, please send a PM at our forums or at our IRC channel which is #[Evil_Genius] @ irc.irchighway.net to Nazgul, Laik, or Eldo, and a swift reply (as possible) will be made to you. We really do appreciate your help, as well as the time and effort taken for scanlating mangas with us.

Big thanks goes to the crew: Laik, Eldo, WM, and Nazgul!

Hmm, I guess things are coming together. I’ll get to the point this time though. As you can see in the title, it is a triple release of Zetman. Here you go:
Chapter 31 Torrent: [Evil_Genius]Zetman_v03c031
Chapter 32 Torrent: [Evil_Genius]Zetman_v03c032
Chapter 33 Torrent: [Evil_Genius]Zetman_v03c033
Big up to Eldo, OldMystic, and Nazgul for putting in work to roll the stuff out.

Hmm, I’m back with a chapter of NHK. AbsoluteZero usually edits it but I wanted to gone ahead and get it out so I hope he or anyone else don’t mind. Here’s the chapter:
Torrent: [Evil_Genius]NHK 16
Also, I know some out there are disappointed about the lack of weekly Zetman but releases will come eventually even if they’re aren’t weekly. Don’t worry about it though, just take it easy and I’ll get it out every now and then. I’ll put my best effort into editing it either way.

It’s a good one! ^_^ Lot’s O- action(tm).
Torrent: Berserk Chapter 265
Editing finished up around 15:00 EST on the 12th, but I personally didn’t get home till 22:00 to be able to seed. I had the folks in to visit the new apartment then we went on a tour of the area, so I was rather late getting home. Many apologies. Good news is that 265 is out and seeded. I will personally read it tomorrow when I have the time. I’ll make sure the rest of the world gets to it before I do, so have fun and enjoy yourselves.
To Miura: On behalf of EG we want to say thank you. You keep making it, and we will keep buying it.

The long wait is over, Berserk 264 (translated) has arrived. Many thanks should goto Eldo for stepping up as an editor to get the release out the door. We all have lives outside of berserk, and this indeed take a bit of time to do. We hope the wait is worth the effort and time.
So, with out further adieu, Berserk: Chapter 264
Berserk 265 should be out around 11/11 which isn’t that far away.

This is my first time doing this but it’s all good since I’m here with good news. We’re trying our best and I’m trying to put my laziness aside to at least get a chapter out a week but most of the thanks goes to Eldo who translates Zetman. Still, I’ll like to thank the entire staff.
Enough of my talking though, here’s what you are probably here for:
Hmm, now if I could only get a bit more consistent.

Zetman 29 (vol 3) was released earlier this morning thanks to the hard work of Mr. Eldo. This is psi29a typing currently just to give you all a heads up.
So… clicky clicky everyone and enjoy.
We do have more news for everyone. Straight from Nazgul (EG’s fearless leader), here is what he has typed in the forums:
Here’s the new status for some of our older projects:
Zetman – New chapter every week.
Nhk – Ch 16 and 17 in a week.
Biomega & Nse – whenever new vol or chapter comes out.
BReaction – Ch 5 in a week.
Elfen Lied – If no one does it by the time we release zetman vol 5 then we will start working on it again,but i hope someone does pick it up.
FMA/TenTen – Too much work,will think about them in few months.
There you have it. More stuff coming soon! Also, I’ll be working on additional pages for the site here, perhaps do a few interviews with some staff members, and get some perspective of who Evil_Genius is. Till then, have a good one!
