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.

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.
