Update 01/27/10 January 27, 2010

Posted by makoscans in Saint Seiya The Lost Canvas.

After reading through some comments regarding the recent decision to halt scanlations of SSTLC, I guess I should give an explanation. I didn’t want to do it originally because I knew the post would turn out to be lengthy.

Anyways, if you’re familiar with our ‘About’ page and our history, this group was created with the intent of working on neglected series. Once another group overtakes us, unless their work is horribly bad, I make the decision of dropping whichever series it is and hoping they do well in their endeavor. This has happened with Ah! My Goddess, Shitsurakuen, Kurohime, and now SSTLC. This is our “standard procedure”. DO NOT mistake it with anything else.

As you may know, we started scanlating SSTLC while the group NankH was also doing so. They were extremely friendly with us and wished us well. I don’t know if I told them back then, but I’ll say it now: I GREATLY appreciated that. So, I hope all you SSTLC fans will keep that in mind and also support SSA. I also hope that any Mako-Scans STAFF (or former staff) involved will not direct any negative words/feelings towards SSA and their work. Constructive criticism is OK :).

I believe this is the best course of action for all the fans who must wait for new chapters of their favorite manga. Most scanlation groups have the mindset that only they are entitled to work on some series as if it was their own property/creation, and it’s pathetic.  Mako-scans, or at least I, will always support the notion of doing everything to get out chapters faster for fans. You may not agree with that or our approach of doing things, but it’s what this group was created for. I want other groups to scanlate these series.

To get back specifically to the topic of Saint Seiya – The Lost Canvas, the staff involved may be considering breaking off from Mako-Scans and continuing the scanlations under another name, so if you REALLY want the same kind of scanlations you’ve been getting, give a shout.

ALSO keep in mind that we started working on the series ‘Shitsurakuen’, stopped once a group showed interest, and then picked it back up again when releases were getting too slow. So, don’t think we are simply abandoning SSTLC.

Thanks to whoever read this ‘explanation’ which probably turned into a rant at one point.

Adone’s Edit: I thought we started this group because we were bored out of our minds and spontaneously decided to start up a group with no goal or direction in mind~

Saint Seiya – The Lost Canvas 165-166 January 26, 2010

Posted by makoscans in Saint Seiya The Lost Canvas.

Saint Seiya – The Lost Canvas 165-166 has been released in English by a group named SSA. You can find it here:



As such, Mako-Scans will NOT continue to scanlate this series as long as another group is taking care of it. Please support SSA, as we shall do, 100%.

Thank you to all those who have supported us and followed our releases of SSTLC. We started from chapter 18 while the RAWs were at 100+, and we FINALLY caught up with the RAWs after over a year of working on it. This wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the help of Phoenix, odysseus08, Sidhi, Okuni, Rama, Influenced, Shen, El Chid, Haldir, kumien, and ESPECIALLY –> Narwe!

Pretty sad to let this series go after so long, but that’s how it goes!

If English scanlations ever fall behind by a significant amount again, let us know and we will consider catching them up again.

As apology for this recent delay,

SSTLC 161 – 165 should be translated by Monday.

161 should be typeset by Narwe by Monday.

Depending on my mood I may help typeset up to 164 by Monday.

Drop by the IRC if you’re bored.
