It’s here! Really, it’s here! Have I ever lied to you? Not often enough.
I just want to thank everyone who has worked on the projects, and LordMune for editing Berserk and spending most of his time on it.
We also have the volume 9 raws for Zetman, which means that there will be no break waiting for the raw to arrive and will continue to release at a steady rate.
Also, we need your help. We need raws for Biomega chapter 28. That’s the raw we’re missing on right now, so if you can, please email them to me at eldoes at gmail dot com, or PM me at the forums. And please, spammers, I have enough Nigerian princesses, thank you.
EDIT: Thanks for the emails and PMs guys, we already have the raw. Thanks a lot to the people who emailed and PMed me the raw. You guys are awesome.

Remember last time when we promised Biomega and Breaction? Well, here they are.
Breaction chapter 18 is the last chapter for the series. So yeah, have fun with it. We certainly have. It is our second completed project, so yay.
Hope you guys enjoy the releases.

Yet again, we are all lingering in the Interstice… waiting for our saviour, Mr. Miura to bless us with another episode. In the mean time, we hope you all enjoy your fix of our Angel Heart, Watanabe, and Zetman.
Next up is the final chapter of B.Reaction! and more Biomega… that is a promise. *whip crack*

Yet another weekend of goodies for everyone!
Yes, there will be another break in Berserk but at least we know it is coming soon.

EDIT: We have the raw, thanks to Lucifer for bringing to our attention.

Hello gang, once again we are proud to bring you Berserk 294, B.Reaction! 17, and more.
Now for some bad news, we’ve removed NHK Volumes 6 and 7 because Tokyopop has already released 6 on to store shelves and 7 is being worked on now.
There has also been a rash of ‘raws’ request for Zetman and B.Reaction. B.Reaction! is almost finished (18 is the last one)… so what is the point?
We have one gentleman post from a Brazilian IP address claiming to be Tew of udanraws. Considering that we are friends with Tew, we chatted him up to see if he really wanted our scans of Zetman Volume 8 that our team patiently paid for and scanned. Here is part of that conversation:
[16:03:22] Tew | firstname.lastname@example.org | IP: 18.104.22.168
[16:03:22] Hi, i’m Tew from #udanraws, can [evil_genius] upp the zetman volume 08 raw to post in #udanraws?
[16:03:22] Mar 11, 4:29 PM — [ Edit | Delete | Unapprove | Approve | Spam ] — Better late than never
[16:04:13] lol tew imposters
[16:08:55] I'd just go for "No, you're not." and if I really wanted to spend time on it I'd add "We know Tew." and that'd be it..
[16:10:07] look look.... there goes tew importer
[16:11:19] haha, reverse lookup: 20178011072.user.veloxzone.com.br
[17:22:49] You wasted your time; There was a 100% chance that it was a brazilian
A few days later, Eldo gets this in IRC:
[11:08] Hello, man where you found zetman vol8? I searched in share and winny but i didn't found
Jina is Iori@36391f10.2308fbe7.veloxzone.com.br * Atomic
Jina on #[Evil_Genius]
Jina using irc.irchighway.net The IRCHighWay Network
Jina End of /WHOIS list.
So there you have it folks. This is how low some groups will go to get their hands on things. We at EG don’t really see the point of all this cloak and dagger bullshit. There is no Volume 9 out now, and if we rushed to get all of Volume 8 out the door, then there would just be a long ass wait again till we decided to buy Volume 9 and scan it ourselves, like always.
Since people are interested in the scans of Zetman, we are tempted to release them, but it won’t be our fault that they are crap quality. Blame it on the Tew imposter and myriad other groups out there.
EDIT BY ELDO: You’re probably wondering, ‘what the hell is this Watanabe?’ Well, it’s a new project, a short 3 volume manga. If you’ve read a little gem called Chocolat, then you’ll love this, because not only is it by the same mangaka, it has the same style of humour. It’s a comedy of sorts, about an alien named Watanabe who traveled to Earth for his research thesis into understanding the Earthen culture and all that jazz. Watanabe not only looks ridiculous in his body suit, but also speaks in an olden Japanese tongue that we have tried to faithfully convert to English.
Anyway, tell us what you think of it in the forums in this thread here whether you hate or love it, all opinions are fine.

The chapter, as Wandering_Mystic has dubbed thee, ‘exodus’.
In other news, I hate puppies.
Update: We have the raws, thank you all for keeping an eye out and letting us know.
Update2: Translation in progress… ^_^

Thanks to the efforts of uncempt (who translated this time around), eldo (who skipped work for you bastards to edit it), mystic, Vicissitude, laik, Nomimono, miyagiCE, and more… we present to you Berserk and more! Just in time for more Berserk around the corner.
I hope you all enjoy! We look forward to next week with… antici- pation!
Now for more hbi2k love!
Episode 21: “Now I See Bees I Won”
Episode 22: “The Revenge of Phil”
Episode 23: “Everybody Hurts”

Here it is:
I’ll avoid putting some jokes in the empty speech bubbles, in case people think that it’s actually part of the plot. It happened last time…so, maybe in the future I’ll consider it.
Also, more Zetman, more Angel Heart, and possibly…more Biomega!
edit: perhaps Eldo won’t, but LordMune and psi29a will! mwah hahahahahhaha!
edit2: this delay is brought to you by the fucking plague! Help us wish Mystic in a full recovery. He already feels bad for the delay, but this is his baby and we at EG respect that and are all waiting with baited breath (as we are aware you all are too). Rest assured we are not dead and Berserk will go out.
Also, there are those that wish to post other’s releases here. That’s all well and good, but I’m sure most here are clever enough to find it themselves.
We’ve always had the policy that no links be posted to either raws or releases. No exceptions.
Now if you are the member of the other groups translating Berserk, why not offer to help us here.
Many heads are better than one. Our translators are easy to work with and offer mentorship as are our editors. So, by all means… send us a message, join the forums, and lets go.

You heard right, releases are here!
So yeah, I kept my promise of having at least 5 releases. We could have more, but I got lazy. We’ll have them ready for the next release batch. Hope you enjoy them. Still, no Berserk, so don’t ask. I heard from a little elf that, for the next chapter to appear, each person must buy a 100 copies of the volumes. So, uh, get cracking. It’s all up to you now.
EDIT: Because some people didn’t get it, my remark about people buying 100 copies of the volumes…was a joke. As in, an amusing and supposed witty device to provoke laughter. It doesn’t seem it was that funny to some people, who took it seriously and thought it was Miura’s word. Heh, no, that was all me. I thought a demand of this ludicrous nature was obviously a joke and people would get it. What Miura really wants is to you to save the Nigerian princess by giving all your bank account details so she could transfer billions of dollars into your account and run away together so no one would know of your secret love. Now, if you don’t get if that is a joke or not, I give up (and just in case everyone is that dense, no, Miura did not say anything of that sort, and no, don’t give your bank account details to this ‘Nigerian princess’. I’ll spell out what is a joke next time).

I hope you’re all enjoying the new year. Now, there’s a few reasons why we haven’t updated in a while, one being that we’re busy. Second, we have our own lives to run, and can’t be on the Internet all the time. I just want to extend my thank you for the people who continue to support us, despite no releases in the last month. That’s not to say that there hasn’t been activity lately. In fact, by next weekend there will be at least 5 releases of Zetman, Angel Heart and BReaction! We are also starting several new projects which are short manga stories. We are not accepting any project proposals from you guys though, but if we do we will ask the community for help (if it comes to it, please don’t say Gantz or One Piece, the last time the majority suggested it I bashed my head on the keyboard). There will be some guidelines posted if we do choose to ask for suggestions.
It doesn’t seem there has been any dates set for the next Berserk chapter. So please, don’t ask. You’ll get a polite ‘piss off’, or a rude ‘go away’ depending on our moods. Also, if you think that the writer’s strike is affecting Miura’s ability to make a chapter, then you have to stop dreaming (yes, I have been asked that question). First of all, Japan is not in America. According to an atlas, there are countries outside of America. Secondly, I really don’t think that the strike extends and affects globally that writers outside of America are on strike because they want the the peanut sized internet residuals. Although I haven’t seen any TV shows come out from Estonia lately…
Originally I had an omake parody of how the Berserk lateness is affecting the groups of the community and wanted to post that. Things always sound better in your head, but fail in execution. But it turns out it was incredibly horrid, so if I get around to make it better, then I’ll post it next weekend with the releases. Then you can laugh at my ‘comedic genius’ or laugh with it.
