A (somewhat) timely release!

  » Posted March 15th, 2008 by psi29a

Hello gang, once again we are proud to bring you Berserk 294, B.Reaction! 17, and more. πŸ™‚


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 | tew@hotmail.com | IP:
[16:03:22] Hi, iÒ€ℒm Tew from #udanraws, can [evil_genius] upp the zetman volume 08 raw to post in #udanraws?
[16:03:22] Mar 11, 4:29 PM Ò€” [ Edit | Delete | Unapprove | Approve | Spam ] Ò€” Better late than never
[16:04:13] lol tew imposters
[16:04:34] lol
[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 :P
[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 :P

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.

  4. DesoNoto Says:

    This is great. Thanks for all these new releases! πŸ˜›

  5. Ragnarok164 Says:

    Hey thanks for the release, but I think berserk is the wrong chapter. It is the same as chapter 293. Please check if I am wrong, Thanks.

  6. Ragnarok164 Says:

    Never mind, I was blind. Forget what I said in my previous comment.

  7. lon3vvolf Says:

    3rd… just in time to get my berserk fix. glad to see Miura, and everyone at EG is doing fine and keeping steady releases. =)

  8. Logue Says:

    Wow, this is alot faster than last time. =P

    Thanks alot!

  9. teacoz Says:

    Thanks for more Berserk πŸ™‚ Sad that B.Reaction is only one more chapter, it was quite the amusing dish with a side of awesomeness. Thanks for keeping up with the high quality!

  10. Artemis Says:

    Does anyone know if B. Reaction is scheduled for another season? I don’t know why they would just end it like this.

  11. Mindflayer Says:

    Just what I needed. Thank you very much.

  12. Thana Says:

    Nice! Now I have to wait to get at home to read it…

  13. Coaxen Says:

    So, it means that our great translator(be grateful, worship him)finally used his time machine to send himself newly translated chapters before the fans get too old while waiting :>

  14. bumble bee Says:

    Another on the 28th? Awesome

  15. guren no kishi Says:

    Thanks for Berserk and Zetman (Taiyousha says volume 9 should be out on mid april).

  16. LoverofHokuto Says:

  17. meow Says:

    god save evil-genius !

  18. Sa[ff] Says:

    Yay! Berserk & BReaction!!! Thx a lot, you’re great!

  19. miyagiCE Says:

    guren no kishi:
    Who or what is Taiyousha? Amazon.jp says nothing of the sort.

  20. Borges Says:

    Well, veloxzone.com.br domain really belongs to a brazilian Internet provider called Velox. Since lots of people use it (including me) and since Velox employs DHCP, you can’t say for sure that Tew imposter = Jina or anyone else :\

  21. Hikarub Says:

    Holy shit, am I dreaming?! I thought there was a release just a few days ago, and now we suddenly have another!?!

    Thanks for the releases!! Awesome work!!!

    “There’s no cape!”

  31. RedSamurai Says:

    Maaaaaaaaaaaaan!! Fast? that’s the least we can say!
    Anyway, it’s always a pleasure to have a gift like that when you don’t expect it πŸ˜‰
    Thanx so much everyone!

  32. Johnathan Says:

    Awesome, I forgot all about a new chapter being out! That was a fast release too.

    Thank you for the chapter EG

  33. Mystyc Vegeta Says:

    thanks for Berserk

  34. Cain Says:

    Thx a lot guys, this release was really fast πŸ™‚
    But somehow, the fequency of releases remind me of last year; in the beginnig Miura released a few chapters every 2 or 3 weeks, but then the starvation for Berserk began πŸ™
    Lets hope that it wont be the same this year and enjoy the releases coming πŸ™‚

    Last but not least, thx EG

  35. Dyhalto Says:

    You guys are optimistic πŸ™‚
    I’ll be impressed with Miamura if he can get out of this 2-3 chapters, 1.5 month vacation phase.
    If Berserk weren’t such a narcotic, I’d have abandoned it for now so I can read bulk in a few years. But I’m addicted πŸ™‚

  36. Yeror Says:

    thanx again for Berserk!
    looks like its starting to pick up speed a little πŸ™‚

  37. Clod! Says:

    Thanks guys for the BReaction chapter!

    But we’re so close to the end…

  38. Gem Says:

    295 Preview is Available YEEAAA BAABBY!

  39. Marte Says:

    Thank you for another great release!

    P.S. Don’t take this as a complaint, but isn’t it time to change those 2 pages at the end of each release? Every time that I look at them, I find them to be more and more disturbing, because Griffith is still there with all the other people of the old Band of the Hawk. I mean, come on, he killed them! Does he really deserve to still be there?
    Anyway, it’s not really important, I just wanted to say it.
    Thank you again.
