Nyaa Reborn Update

First, let me apologize for the length of this post. I am trying to cover all aspects of the advent of nyaa clones. If you don’t care about the alleged nyaa controversy or general subbing/translating drama, feel free to ignore this post. For those who do care, please read everything so you understand my position.

It has come to my attention that there seems to be some controversy between whether or not i7 Scans should support nyaa.si or not. Currently, it seems that the main point of contention is whether to use nyaa.si, who many believe to be a pirated (stolen?) version of nyaa.se, or whether to use nyaa.pantsu.cat, who are supposedly comprised of some of the original nyaa members, but based on some internet hearsay had a member who ostensibly said something that was construed as offensive (racist?). In both cases, the intentions of each group and its members is nebulous since I have yet to see actual concrete proof beyond what has been branded as racism/piracy is anything less than inference. I am not saying that people didn’t reach these inferences for good reason, simply that I don’t have the time to sort out internet drama and hearsay.

I will say that I do not want any part of this controversy or the drama that ensues. I am solely here to translate manga for those who are interested and for the benefit of improving my Japanese comprehension. I don’t condone racism or theft, so until I can confirm any intent of ill will from either site, I will not officially support nor endorse one or the other. I will leave it to the individual person to choose which tracker they wish to support:

nyaa.pantsu.cat

nyaa.si

I have deleted my original “Nyaa Reborn” post, so that no one misconstrues my inaction as support or endorsement for one over the other.

This being said, if you understand how torrent trackers work, DHT works, and you have DHT enabled, then you will understand why I say that from a purely technical (and not ethical or moral) perspective that supporting neither of these groups is not an issue. DHT will find you peers from which to download your torrent (some of these peers may have downloaded pieces from either tracker or none of them) independent from any tracker.

EARTH’S AFTER SCHOOL REST – VOLUME 6, CHAPTER 33 – 35 [Complete]

UPDATE: I’ve added the links to Mangahere, but I’m having issues uploading to bato. Seems that it doesn’t like that I’m traveling right now. I’ll try to figure out a way to upload it to bato and provide the corresponding links when they are up. However, my guess is that if you’re coming here, you’ve already downloaded the chapters and read them.

tl;dr version:
Thanks for reading. The story is finished. There is extra stuff included that I will translate and release later. There will be a batch with revised chapters. Sadly, nyaa bt tracker is dead, so new tracker for P2P dls.

Chikyuu Complete Release

After the last cliffhanger I only felt it was appropriate to release the next chapters as a block. After all, the previous chapter’s ending was fairly solemn and waiting a week or more between info dumps might have made the final chapters difficult to follow. So without further ado, I give you the final three chapters of Earth’s After School Rest.

Since nyaa is now dead, I will have to use a different bt tracker for these chapters’ release. Sorry for the inconvenience, but has been reborn by a new group of individuals. They are emulating the nyaa look and feel and appear to be the spiritual successors. You can find them at nyaa.si. I will now be using them as the primary tracker and bt distribution. As you can see, they also provide magnet links, which I have included for your convenience. If you grabbed the torrents created more than 8 hours ago and would like to seed this manga, please download the new torrent links. They include the other trackers, but now also include nyaa reborn.

Thank you everyone for staying with me and encouraging me to keep releasing. Translating this manga has been an extremely rewarding experience: from learning more about the Japanese language and culture to releasing to new chapters to such a wonderful group of fans, it’s been great!

General Update

Just letting everyone know that my original hope and intent of releasing early last week was replaced by a new goal: releasing the final three chapters within a few days of each other. This change of plans occurred after realizing that putting a long break between any of these last few chapters would not be ideal for the reader.

Currently, I have translated all three final chapters and just need to typeset them. I hope to release the first chapter sometime on or before Friday.

It’s finally here! The next release! I hope that you all enjoy this chapter. Next chapter will be released sometime this weekend or early next week. I don’t want these last few chapters to be strung out with too much time in-between.

For those who don’t download the chapter, but use a manga aggregator, as always I’ll update those links as they become available.

Chapter Tomorrow

Just letting you all know that I’m alive and fine and that I expect to release the next chapter tomorrow. Sorry for such long delays on these last few chapters.

EARTH’S AFTER SCHOOL REST – VOLUME 6, CHAPTER 31

chapter-31-release-pic

Thank you everyone for waiting patiently. There’s been a lot going on in the real world, so unfortunately this means delays. Regardless, we have made it this far. We are on the final volume, and as such things have gotten serious. Soon all will be revealed about the secret of the phantoms! Look forward to it!

It seems that Mediafire is struggling right now, so I cannot currently upload to my account. When this is rectified, I will post the link, along with links to the usual manga aggregators.

EARTH’S AFTER SCHOOL REST – VOLUME 5, CHAPTER 30

chapter-30-release-pic

A little slow translating and typesetting this one. I feel that part of the reason it took so long is because I have not been watching a lot of anime or reading a lot of manga lately. For some reason, I end up procrastinating on the typesetting. I hope to get another translation done during the Holiday season, so look forward to that.

I hope you enjoy the chapter. I enjoyed it a lot!

The manga aggregator/reader sites are fast with accepting my upload tonight, so they’ve been added per usual.

Delay

Unfortunately, I will not be able to release Chapter 30 tonight. Two things have impeded my progress:

  1. Work as usual
  2. One of my 3TB Hard Drives suffered from bad sectors and a large amount of data related to my work is (currently) irrecoverable.

I have had to rededicate my efforts to recovering this data since it represents about a month worth of work, which I will otherwise have to reconstruct from scratch. Sorry. Hopefully, I will be able to release the chapter on the weekend.

EARTH’S AFTER SCHOOL REST – VOLUME 5, CHAPTER 29

chapter-29-release-pic

This chapter Masashi and the gang decide to hold a study session to brush-up on their atrophying academics.

Sooo… this chapter took a lot of time for two reasons. First, there was a ton of typesetting because there were sound effects for everything and there was a lot text spoken outside of text boxes. Second, there were a ton of optional translation notes that I included in the back. Some of you will undoubtedly enjoy them. It felt like I was writing eclectic textbook entries. You’ll see what I mean.

Anyway, enjoy!
