    I was looking and I realized there wasn't a thread for this greatly overlooked Jump series. Samurai Usagi started last year in Jump. For some reason, no one has bothered to scanlate this series even though it is a fighting series which is very unique and has lasted through the year (Although I don't know if it will last a lot longer due to the strong newcomers). This is the story synopsis taken from Wikipedia:

    As you can see below, it has a pretty unique art style. I personally am very interested in this series, but nobody has been interested in it enough to scanlate it sadly. Maybe this will change.

    And I apologize dor the large images. I don't know how to make them thumbnails.

    added the spoiler tags for you. Spoiler tags [*spoiler]text/image/etc[*/spoiler] without the* ~koenosaki

    If I remember correctly, it wasn't the full chapter. I didn't have the raw of the first chapter to link to either. Maybe you could help me out. I did do a request....no one responded.

    It's okay. I could understand if you never get around to it. It looks like it might die soon anyway. It's such a pity. I really wish someone picked this up. T_T

    It's such an odd, quirky little series. I've been thinking that it doesn't really belong in Jump, but is more suited for a magazine like Morning. I've been reading the tankoubon, and it starts out going in one direction, but in the more recent ones I can almost see the manga-ka struggling to make it more Jump-like... but it doesn't really fit with the kind of story he's trying to tell in the beginning.

    Have you read a lot of the raws? I really want to know what it's like if you could give an overview of plot and events. I don't really mind spoilers, because I'd doubting I will ever get to read it. T_T

    Please if anyone has any tanko raws that they're willing to share with us, please scan them so we can translate and scanlate the series.

    I really am interested in this series, It's such a pity that is was overlooked and underrated.

    Maybe if haya5h1 had time, he would be nice to scan the tanks for us?

    but of course we can't force him but I have given up reading (if you call it that way, let's say looking) the raws because no scans/trans came out

    I can always only find recent chapters. It's a shame. This is like the only big newer Jump series not being scanlated.

    so no one have scan/translated this series at all? I would be best if there were raws. Maybe you should surf 2ch for anyone who has the raws or buy the tankobon yourself and scan them. It looks pretty good, so if no one is interested in it I can trans for 1 ch. per week pace

    It's at the stage now where someone would do well to just buy the volumes online and scan them in themselves. I was thinking of doing that at any rate, just still not so sure if this series is worth it!

    just see if the first chapter is worth it or not, I guess. and yep, I am gonna start translate this prolly tomorrow or sometime, when I get done with my current trans. Depending on the first chapter, I might do it for the whole series if you have all the raws, but it actually depends because I might have to drop one of my project that I'm not that interested in (I am gonna compare which one worth more, if you know what I mean).


    the first chapter is really funny, but I found out this manga is quite difficult to translate because it's really wordy, and uses real old dialect, and so the trans will probably take more than a day to finish (I even wonder if I can get it done by friday...

    Caesarpk, are you already part of a scanlation group? I was thinking about this, since we seem to be interested in a bunch of the same projects. I thought maybe we could try making TumorHorse a legit scanlation group. The only thing I'd like it to get more people, because I am not sure how dedicated I am to doing whole series. This was kind of just a temporary thing, because I was impatient waiting for toriko. XD

    But maybe more people would be interested. I really would like to see Toriko and Usagi done all the way. I just hope Usagi survives.

    I've been toying with the idea of buying the tanks for these to scan them in and work on them. The current raws for it are so damn crappy, if I get them I probably won't make them available to the public though.

    It'd be cool if you could work on Usagi but I would advise reading a couple of tutorials first and doing some test pages and stuff.

    Chapter 3 (Couldn't find 2)

    Well, like I said. I just do scans really quick and sloppily. I never intended for my scans to be on par with other bigger groups. I didn't did it, because I was impatient. But I still would like to see this series scanlated. I am sure there are people willing to do a better job. I just want to do what I can. It'd be awesome if you bought the tanks. I think this series still deserves to be done regardless if it dies soon. It still is a year old.

    I think in the long run, knowing how to do things to a MQ level saves you a surprising amount of time.

    I will probably start of by buying only the first 3 volumes just to see what the response is like I know tht Zoro on here and Koenosaki were interested in doing this, you should try and pm them!
