I'm up to translating volume 7 now. I've got people working on typesetting and cleaning. Mostly typesetting is the bottleneck right now (just in case anyone wants to help out). Once I get done with volume 10 I'll try to help out with other jobs. For now, we've got a decent pace so I'm trying to get through all these quickly.
And then volume 11 comes out in March. I'm also reading through all the issues in Bessatsu. If we do catch up and I get people willing to do it, we could try to do this in monthly issues as it's released.
AHHHH!!! I'm so torn. I'm super glad that this awesome series is going to get some more attention, but it is going to be painfully tempting to read the scans since you will likely pass the official Kodansha USA release quickly once you get going. Volume 7 comes out in April here in the states IIRC. I really can't wait to read it.
Well I'm not sure about everyone else but recently I finally got my hands on Volume 7:
Kewl, please, keep translating it, last issue's color pages were great
Started reading this recently too, a shame I can't discuss the series with you all as I could only read the first two volumes so far Still the first two volumes already got me hooked, I can't wait for kewl to release the batch of new chapters
My God. Volume 8 was devastatingly sad
The scanlations are all done, it's on our site:
Volume 13 comes out a week from now.
I'm glad that the scanlation will likely raise awareness of this majorly overlooked series, but I guess I'm going to have to avoid this thread from now on. I'll just keep on following the Kodansha USA release.
If anyone ends up enjoying the scanlations, be sure to support the official release by Kodansha USA. Volume 8 just came out and volume 9 comes out next April. Book Depository ships worldwide for free
Great manga... It starts slow but it is nice to see a plot and character development without having a lot of action in the beginning. If you compare the current arc with the first arcs then you would have never thought the story would develop this way. I like the story, the setting, the ideas and the dialogues
This page was awesome
But panels don't amaze me that much, since konjiki no gash, I already knew what this mangaka is capable of

Still at the volume 3 of Animal Land, I don't want to marathon it.
Au fait pour les Français le manga va sortir en janvier sous le nom Animal Kingdom.
Dōbutsu no Kuni/Animal Land/Animal Kingdom, que choisir…

It's no use sharing something writing french mistgyu, most won't be able to understand ^____^
Shame I couldn't follow this series sooner, but still thanks a damn lot for all the work kewl! I could say a lot more about this great series there's so much I don't really know where to start XD I hope some more people will join our talk here, so we can thoroughly discuss the manga.
