News and Updates 03-06-17

Hello there! This is your resident idiot SHiN here and it’s time for some news and updates. Yay!

BROKEN LINKS

A lot of them are still broken, but we restored the Sakura Trick manga folder in the Library. The links found in every release post are still broken though. We’ll try to restore more of the download links, but it won’t happen for a while since *ahem*I’m using my already slow internet speed to upload my Dead Space walkthrough*ahem*

AIKATSU STARS! MOVIE

We’re not gonna translate it because we lack the manpower and resources. We may able to translate it in the near future though.

MANGA AND DOUJINSHI TRANSLATION

I think we’re all good from aside apart from the need of an additional cleaner. If you’ve been following our updates and posts, we’re still adjusting to our new pace and I think we finally nailed it. Expect some good stuff showing up more frequently than before.

Upcoming releases for February

  • Sakura Trick volume 6, chapters 1-3
  • 3 Aikatsu! doujins

DONATIONS

We used to have a donor page back at SHiN-gx Fansubs to list every donor who has ever donated, but we scrapped that because the website layout is not designed to handle another page. Yeah, it’s a pathetic excuse, but there you go. However that doesn’t mean we didn’t receive donations this past month. As of this writing we accumulated $110

Thank you!

AIKATSU-ONLY EVENT DOUJINSHI ACQUISITION

The event is less than a week away (February 12th) and sadly $110 is not enough. We need to secure the shipping fees, the service fee, and most importantly have enough funds to buy as many books as we want. Call me a Negative Nelly, but I highly doubt we can reach $300+ before or during the first week after the event. So instead, we’re gonna sit this one out, save our current donations and hopefully it’ll grow just in time for Summer Comiket.

RAISING MORE DONATIONS

Lazy Lily Fansubs operates solely through donations and after 2 years of translating, I think it’s safe to say we’re still struggling. Aside from buying more doujinshi, I do have plans to upgrade my PC so it can do more tasks with specs good enough to last me for another 5 years. So yeah, it’s a struggle. I was thinking of putting up a Patreon and people will support me by sending funds every month. Receiving, say, $100 a month is very nice, and this will able me to buy books virtually every month. However a part of me doesn’t want to because a fansubber having a Patreon has a negative connotation to it.

If you have any thoughts on the matter, please leave a comment below. Or perhaps you can donate to Lazy Lily Fansubs. C:
