Ichiro Heian chapter 3

Well, it kinda surprised me this afternoon when I saw the latest comment on IchiHei chapter 2. We know many of you can't wait for the next chapter, but please keep it in mind that we are not speedscan. We are slow not because we don't have raws. We have only a few people, and we also have real life stuff to do, like work or studying.

I'm pretty sure that many of you are reading weekly manga, and there are groups that release very quickly, but we are not them. We have been doing scanlation at a very slow pace for years, and we are not going to change that policy. Whenever something is fully done, we put it on this website, and that's it. We don't rush because we don't feel the need to do that. You may be impatient to wait, but 2 weeks aren't long if you see how long it takes us to scanlate Oto x Maho (that's the only series we are waiting for raws btw).

One more thing is that this manga isn't easy to translate at all. Right now I still haven't finished my translation on chapter 4 simply because some parts of it are as difficult as hell. Remember that Kobayashi Jin is not to be underestimated. The language he uses in his manga can fuck up translators who are still far from reaching fluency in Japanese like me, thus making them spend a lot of time to deliver a proper translation. I think I may have to spend one or two more weeks to finish the script, since I'm currently spending like 5 hours a day just to study kanji. For that reason, you may expect chapter 4 coming in 1 month or even longer. For now just enjoy chapter 3 while waiting. See ya!
