Well, as we wind down to 2006, I must say it has been an interestingly year. Can you believe that the forum has been around for almost 4 years already?
This speaks similarly for EG which Oro founded almost 5 years ago (2002). While he has moved on to more and better things, EG has lasted with new blood and I’m proud to say that we look forward for another 5 years.
There are very few Manga translating groups that have lasted as long. We have out lived Godshand when they tried to translate 3 chapters of Berserk, we have out lived Yakuza, and have also picked up where several other groups have stopped and disappeared.
We have gone from speed scanlators with dodgy translations to a quality minded group with excellent translations thanks to Wandering_Mystic, Nomimono, Eldo, LordMune, Albator, Starnum, uyauya, and Vicissitude.
While the list above is not everyone who is part of EG, these guys have shown a level of commitment and dedication to a hobby and passion that few in community have. So if you see ’em around, give ’em thanks.
In the mean time, have a great New Year and as always, we can’t wait for the 12th of January! — psi29a

It was just brought to my attention that 280 will be released on January 12 of 2007. You can find out more at the official Berserk page hosted by YoungAnimal.
As I said in the previous post, EG will all over it faster than Eldo on your Mom. 😛

Well, we are coming down to the final days of 2006 and what can we say? Berserk technically is stuck at 279 and still no news from Miura as to when it will be picked back up. However, soon as we hear word and see the next raw we will be all over it like white on rice. Our other projects are moving along but of course most of EG has gone into hibernation for Decemeber but the new year should bring us back on task.
Also, we are looking for talented people to redesign EG’s site now that we have consolidated the forums and tracker on the EG name. I (psi29a) can do it, but it will take awhile and I’m programmer by profession and not designer. So, feel free to contact us if you would like to help out. You will get props, link to your name/site/profession and if you want a place among EG.
In the mean time, here is some fan art, omanga, and more that has come out of the forums and other neat things we have found.
Until next time! *grin* — psi29a

The EG forums has been moved to a new address – http://www.evil-genius.us/forums/. Change your bookmarks accordingly. There has been some scare amongst users that the forum is either down or disappeared, and this is not the case; the web address has merely been changed. EG is still generously hosted by Mindwerks; by our beloved psi29a, the ninja adminstrator. The reason for this change is that both Mindwerks and EG are heading through different divergent paths. Mindwerks is going to expand in its own way, differently from the Evil Genius scanlation group. It is essential that this ‘separation’ occurs to ensure continual growth for both parties involved, as we reach our own different, unrelated paths and interests. I’ll digress, the EG forums is still continually hosted by Mindwerks, with no change in content made. It is essentially the same forum, and only very minor changes in its navigation has changed to better suit the forum and EG.
I am saddened to announce that one of our members, Albator, beloved editor of NHK and translator of Angel Heart, will be leaving the group due to real life responsibilities, and will only be active until the end of this year. He is certainly one of the tanks of the group, and we will miss him dearly. Unfortunately, his real life responsibilities leave him little spare time to be involved in scanlation, so we at EG wish him the best of luck with this. It is always sad to wave farewell to one of our members, especially to one of Albator’s calibre. We will bid him farewell in style by the only way we can (no, not with money or a party, that’s crazy talk, out of the question!): by making manga releases. Stay tuned for that. We bid you farewell, Albator, and salute you for your work.
That being said, there will be no Christmas release. I’m atheist, same with a couple of members, and someone is Jewish I think, and French. We’re basically all religion-less deviants, although some of us do believe the Easter Bunny does exist, but not as a god or deity that demands worship. But hey, we’re all hypocrites, so we’ll taking a break during Christmas.
Happy holidays regardless from EG.
PS: No Berserk yet, probably not until next year, methinks. I doubt a Christmas miracle.
