I like your response Keshire. And I kinda agree
that they had alot of time to figure out what
was happening under their nose .
Well, part of the reason I posted the manga,
was the hope that they would realize how upset some
of us were with their slow releases. But I think
that message fell on deaf ears .
It just depends on how ignorant they
are of their readers, and that will decide
what will happen in the future.

I was looking for chapter 15 again the other day but couldn't find it anymore at OM.
@Tal, Was OM the one who asked you to stop it?
No, meep asked me to stop.
Although, once I agreed that I would
stop making the manga, they asked OM
to take down the manga. Since I agreed to
stop. Kinda messed up, but thats what happened.
manwha can b used to describe chinese manga/comics
chinese comic is junk that drags on and on and on (real comics like superman and marvel heros)
chinese manwha: some of its good like the one abt 3 kingdoms
Hay Tal_Shiar, if you could, can you e-mail me the translated copy of Immortal Regis chap. 15 plz.. I've been waiting for a very long time for it to be translated.
immortal regis chapters for vol 3 is all out on Onemanga.com
I came in here to talk about this awesome series and all I get is people bitching about the speed meep-scans are going at. It's not gonna kill you to be patient meep do HQ stuff which is generally worth waiting for or offer them your help, this thread is basically just two pages of moaning... blegh, lame!
Now back on topic:
The manga is pretty good but something has being bothering me, besides the fact that being undead u need ur masters blood every 3 days does being "dead" has any other negative effects? Like would he start to root or something like? Because so far taking aside the the need for blood being "dead" seems way too good, u get to live longer, can do magic, has fast regenaration i see only positive points here.
well, from what I understood, it seemed like he is undead as long as he gets his master's blood, but if he runs out of "undead energy" sort of thing, he will be immobilized and die sooner or later
Also, when he regenerates himself, he sucks "life energy" from the surrounding, i.e. people, animals, fishes, trees, therefore endangering others
and one negative might be that he can never go back to being human, and that he sucks at magic. (don't know if that king Noche sucked at magic or not, so can't say all undead suck at magic
anyways, I enjoyed the recent releases quite a lot. wonder how's Jae Hyuk's gonna survive though
Also, owen was hilarious lol

I'm pretty sure that as time passes we will understand more about what being undead really entails, it's only volume 3 after all so I'm sure that it's only going to get more indepth.
...so meep scans should've said although we have dedicated many many many many hours of our free time to this series and have brought it to the attention to the manga reading public. Why don't you jump on the bandwagon take all the momentum from our hardwork and kick us of now whilst we're gathering speed? Besides the quality of what meep scans puts out is very good no offence to Tal_Shiar or anything but their was a quality difference.Originally Posted by unholy
Too true!!!Originally Posted by caesarpk
Lol, sure their was. And although quality is important, manga readers really only care about the story. Thus as long as the readers know whats happening, they do not mind the quality as much, at least that's how I see it (mind you I was a noob at it too ).
Look, I got tired of waiting for them to come out with the manga. And I read many posts of people complaining about how slow the manga release was, and I was kinda upset when their only response was "we have lives too", and not giving us valid reasons or times of the releases. So I just decided to do it myself, and I did. The secondary effect that I hoped it would have was force meep-scans to realize that they were starting to upset their readers were getting upset.
P.S Had they been paying attention to their forum, they could have stopped me
long before I released my manga.
Let alone, what I did could be more considered as a creative complaint. Instead of wining
about how slow they where with their releases. I made my own scanlation, in order to
prove my point.

Hmm so its been ages since I've been to this site, they even changed the layout...I like the old format better but maybe thats because I'm not use to this. Anyway after waiting what seems like forever on meep I remember you can find almost anything on MH so here I am and this is what I find.
Long story short Meep does not own any exclusive rights to Immortal Regis and as such they can NOT complain about other people attempting to do what they do, just faster. There are MANY manga that have MULTIPLE groups scanlating them. Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, and even newer series like Psyren have more than one group scanning them. So I don't know what this "bandwagon" you speak of is but if you're a scanlating group and you get behind, people are gonna get tired of waiting and find ways to get their damn manga. We don't owe Meep anything, if somebody else has the resources and ability to scan Immortal Regis faster than Meep then tough titty for them. Scanlators/Subbing groups have to compete for popularity, you aren't gonna have a monopoly on a series forever. Especially not one as good as Immortal Regis is and more people are becoming aware of it. If you cant scan up to speed then you have no right to complain, thats all there is to it. Manga does not slow down to be scanned, it comes out on a continuous basis. They knew that when they started.
Thanks guy's for supporting my actions,
It's really appreciated.
Now Alan, the only reason I stopped
making my translations was because meep's
translator willingly gave me the translations.
And I stopped because I did not want to place
him in a difficult situation. But if meep is still going
to be crawling like this, I'm gonna start finding a
way of undermining their monopoly.
i love this manhwa!!! i have the raws til volume 6 ^^
the art is great too =]]
He also claimed he was trickered into giving you the translations as he thought you were from the group.
This is nonsense so you're saying Meep scans had no hand in the current popularity of this series? So just based of the raws that were available there were still 900+ people with this on their reading list? When a group decides to put their faith in a series with no scanlations and no current fanbase and start from chapter 1 people enjoying and being able to read the series is down to that. It's not something many groups are willing to do which you can probably tell from the many many groups who just jump on whatever is weekly or popular.Quote:
...Umm, it's a complete series! Ended at volume 6. The chapters are not gonna go anywhere.Quote:
I would rather have a group that I know has good quality releases and have been around for a while and have the structure so that I can have faith that they will finish the series. Do you know how many new groups come out and die? People find out how much hard work it is and they just give up. I've seen situations were another group/person picks up a series that was being scanlated at a pace that was in their eyes at a slow pace and release it faster for a while then all of sudden they burn out because even lq releases take time. The original group has already dropped the project the new group are no more and then the project makes no progress it remains unfinished.
It's not too hard to learn how to get a bit better and then apply to join the group. Not too hard at all and the most effective way to help. Competition in scanlating is not healthy on manga that do not have the fanbase to support it. Forcing groups to compete is what's causing a lot of bad blood in a community where people used to be more supportive of each other and members of new groups got to know one another.
Goodness only knows I learnt my lesson with Kekkaishi!
