Hey there, everyone! Thought I’d make a status page here which I could update occasionally to give you some more information on what I’m currently working on, as well as what raw manga volumes I have available that I haven’t scanned in yet. If you have any requests for what I should scan next from this list, or which project you want me to work on next, feel free to tell me in the comments. Of course, I’ll still mostly just work on what I want to, but I tend to get more motivated if people have an active interest in what I’m working on.

Scanlation work with other groups:
- Atom: The Beginning [Status: Active] [My Role: QC] – Ch 23 was released last. Ch 24 has been scanned and translated and is awaiting cleans and
- Black Jack: Blue Future [Status: Active] [My Role: Proofreading, Cleaning, QC] – Chapter 5 was released last. Chapter 6 has been cleaned and is awaiting translation, typesetting and QC.
- Blue Giant [Status: On Hold] [My Role: QC] – There isn’t an active translator on this project currently, so the rest of us are looking for one to continue the series. We’ve got an editing team that unfortunately has nothing to edit. If you’re a translator and you’re interested in working on the series, get in contact with either me or Amtt over at Golden Roze.
- Eater [Status: On Hold] [My Role: Everything] – You know, now that I think about it, I’m not sure why I didn’t release this here at Jammin’ Scans. I think maybe I didn’t have the site up yet. Anyway, when I say everything, that also includes translation. I’m not much of a translator, however… which is why releases have been slow on this. Chapter 4 was released last. Raws have been acquired for chapter 5 , but it still needs to be translated.
- Full Ahead! Coco Zervance [Status: Active] [My Role: Proofreading, QC] – Chapter 1 was released last, and we’re very close to releasing chapter 2. I’m just waiting for the typesetter to put the finishing touches on it and then I’ll be quality checking it. We’ve also got a second version of chapter 1 ready to go with redraws on the color pages.
- Mr. Clice [Status: On Hold] [My Role: Proofreading, Cleaning, Typesetting] – This is another one I’d like to catch up to and work on the stuff currently coming out of Japan. Vol 1 has been entirely scanned, and Chapters 4 & 5 have been translated by Dumbnut. I’ve proofread and cleaned 4, now I’ve just got to typeset it. Maybe I’ll get back to this one soon.
- Sunset Rose [Status: Active] [My Role: Proofreading, Cleaning, Typesetting QC] – Chapter 8 was released last. Translations have been completed up to chapter 45. Chapter 10-13 have all basic cleans done and are pending redrawing (which is my responsibility as cleaner). Chapter 9 has been fully cleaned, and is pending typesetting.
- Sultan Boueitai [Status: On Hold] [My Role: Proofreading, Typesetting] – Gosh, this is one of those cases where it’s a project that I really love but for some reason has been completely put on the backburner for me… Maybe it’s just because I haven’t done any typesetting in a while, but that’s not any excuse, honestly. The rest of the volume has been fully translated & cleaned already. I should really get back to it.
Scanlation work for Jammin’ Scans:
- The Planet Garaga [Status: Active] [My Role: Proofreading] – Currently working on this with some great folks for release at Jammin’ Scans.
- Ragnarok Guy [Status: Planned] [My Role: Proofreading, Cleaning, Typesetting] – I have public raws for all 7 volumes, as well as translations I’ve obtained for all chapters. I’d like to start working on this at some point.
This is essentially a list of manga I currently own. I might scan in some of these at some point but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’ve separated them into “raw manga” and “out-of-print official English manga. I’ve also included a wishlist, mostly for my own reference, of manga I’d like to buy in the future for scanning purposes.

I don’t really plan to use Jammin’ Scans for Fansubs (hence the “scans” in the name) but I just thought I’d give you a brief rundown of the fansubs I help out with and their current status.
- Jungle Emperor Leo (1989) [Status: Active] [My Role: QC] – Working on this with Live-Evil & Golden Roze. Ep 8 in QC.
- Kochikame [Status: On Hold] [My Role: QC, Song Translation] – Working on this one with ATTKC. They release random episodes, and I QC them when ready. I also carefully translate the openings and endings. They haven’t sent me any episodes to QC in a while. I’m not sure when they will again.
- Mama is a 4th Grader [Status: Active] [My Role: fine timing, proofreading, typesetting, QC] – I’ve started work on this again. I’ll be releasing more episodes of it at Golden Roze. My plan is to release them in chunks of three-episodes at a time.
- Other Projects at Live-Evil [Status: On Hold] [My Role: QC] – Jungle Emperor Leo is the main thing I’m focused on at Live-Evil, but I also QC other stuff when it pops up.
- Plenty of projects at Orphan Fansubs [Status: Active] [My Role: QC] – I’m working on a lot of stuff over there as a quality checker. For more information on the status of their projects, you can go check out their own status page which Collectr tends to keep updated now & then.
