2002.04.25-23:20 :: We are currently re-designing the page, so this update is just a little bit of an appetizer before the redesign. I do realize its been 2 weeks since the last update, I do own a calendar, so yeah. Well anyways, here are your selection of manga for tonight:

2002.03.30-20:40 :: Hello everyone, I’m sorry for the lack of manga for the last week, I decided to take a vacation from the page all together and enjoy my break, so now I’ve got a bunch of manga for you!
One Piece v13c109-112 (More whiskey peak! And someone had a bit too much to drink… so a SHOW DOWN BETWEEN LUFFY AND ZORO!)

Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2002.03.14-22:35 ::Well finals week is next week, so some of the projects have slowed down, particularly Ryuuroden… but once the next term gets going there should be steady progress. I’ve made a couple updates to the page, like adding stuff to the staff page, the projects page and the join the staff page… I’d also like to give you early warning that a major update is going to be made to the layout, to bring it into the 21st century… cause it seriously needs it. However it will not affect any of the distribution of manga or how the page runs, so dun worry… I’ll tell you though; it’s looking mighty keen!
Ok, and what you’ve been wasting for, the update includes:
Monster v01c05-06 (After several deaths in the hospital Tenma’s life seems to take some sort of order again, important characters for the progression of the story are introduced, and whispers of the monster begin.)
Katteni Kaizo v01c04 (There’s something poetic about this chapter… however I’d suggest if you’ve got a problem with male genitalia you skip this one!)
Shaman King v06c45-46 (The conclusion of the Faust fight!)
One Piece v12c104-108 (More grand line fun, as they get to their first island, Whiskey Peak)
Enjoy ~_~ and come visit us on #mangascreener on irc.dal.net some time =P

2002.02.02-12:55 :: Hello all you manga fans, sorry it took so long for this update, I had hoped for new chapters of a few of the smaller projects, but everyone is busy with midterms and papers and such for this last while, so today’s update is pretty small, but I hope you enjoy it none the least. I hope to see more talk in the forums, its pretty dead in there lately ~_~ anyways, I should be back on a weekly updating schedule pretty soon, so don’t worry about future updates. Today’s treats are:

2002.01.09-19:45 :: FIRST UPDATE OF THE NEW YEAR!! Extra special back to school update… this update is for everyone who is back in school and needs a break, it was a pretty good vacation, we got LOTS of translation work done, and a good amount on the editing side as well (although some of our editing is pretty trashy, I’m not going to name any names, but I’m going to beat up don if he doesn’t do some quality control around here… as long as the individuals involved improve, then everything is cool.) As you know, we haven’t had an update in a long while, so I decided that this one would be extra nice, so we’ve got chapters of 3 different manga for you today:
Rave v01c02-4 (that would be the rest of volume 1)
One Piece v09c72-81 (that’s all of volume 9 folks)
Shaman King v03c35-v04c30 (that’s past any of the other translations available on the net, you can only get them here folks.)

2001.12.23-00:55 :: Its a One Piece kind of Christmas.... I KNOW I KNOW, you all wanted tons of stuff to read during the break, well tough luck, i had to work 14 hour shifts every day for the past week and a half... anyways, i'm going home tommorow so i HAD to put something up tonight, so i hope a full volume of One Piece will tide you over until next year... anyways, have a merry christmas and don't drink too much eggnog. (And if you're the one or ones voting me down on noated, burn in hell >_< you deserve nothing but coal for christmas).

Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.10.27-12:30 :: Sorry I didn't get the new chapters up last night like I promised I would, I should stop making promises I can't keep... oh well, I spruced up the one piece page, and the projects page, and uploaded:

Enjoy... I'm going back to sleep now >_<
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.10.24-00:40 :: As you might have noticed, the news part of the main page disappeared for some of the day, I tried to get newspro to work on this page, but the server doesn't seem to support SSI, so I got all the scripts set up, but it wouldn't meld with the main page, so it was all for not >_< UGGHHH
Anyways, I promised 2 chapters of one piece last night, but I had a virus scare and couldn't edit any of the pages yesterday (cause I was frantically scanning my computer for viruses) and then after that, I realized that my copy of chapter 28 is missing a page, so I have to edit and replace the page that I had in its place... so as soon as that is done I’ll add that chapter, so expect probably around 5-6 chapters on Friday... but for now, please enjoy:
One Piecev04c27
Also, I’m proud to announce that I'll (generation basket) has officially been moved to the active projects, we're currently translating, and will soon be releasing (after we release rave volume 01) and I’d like to note that it will be replacing samurai deeper kyo on the active list, we've decided to cede samurai deeper kyo to project omanga, its best not to be counter productive, they wanted to do it, so since we have many projects, we let them have it.

2001.10.15-20:03 :: Wheee this'll probably be my last update using hard html code for the journal *YAY* cause I successfully set up newspro on Ryokurin.com (my personal site), so now I know how to do it right for this page (cause I’m cool) so this weekend I’ll be switching over all of this news to the new automated journal... wheee fun... anyways, announcements for tonight consist of the addition of another banner to my "cool sites" and that’s reinselft's page, she's cool cause she works for the page, and also promotes it on hers, nice ne? And mangascreener has adopted shanks from sketchy, cause shanks is my hero (I’m planning on making a doujin someday about the misadventures of shanks... like... meanwhile shanks is off making another young boy want to become a pirate... damn that shanks, always hitting on young boys... er... you'd know what I was talking about if you've read one piece *yaoi* =p never mind) and I’m also noticing very little talk in the forums, so I’m thinking I’ve got to start another controversial conversation ~_~ I just haven’t figure out about what yet.
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.10.15-20:55:: Tonight I have some minor updates, but no manga *gomen* I re-build Ryokurin.com, tell me what you think, I also added a small banner to the right corner of the main page... you want to know why, cause I randomly found a mangascreener banner on their site (I was surfing today and I was like OMG, someone actually put a banner to mangascreener on their page) and so I put there banner on mangascreener to show my gratitude... if you know any other cool sites with mangascreener banners, let me know, i think I’ll put the first 10 or so on the main page... who knows =P That’s about it... now who's read Under The Dapple Shade, I haven’t gotten any feedback in the forum yet, so I’m getting worried ~_~
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.10.14-22:40:: Well after another week of school all of us here at mangascreener have some new manga for you, in fact we put up a completely new manga for you, the first TEN chapters of it too, now how's that =p we also have 2 new banners in the banner section, and as you might have all noticed, the forum has been on fire all week, so go and hang out, and let your opinions be known (and i should probably keep my opinions to myself so i don't get screamed at anymore ~_~) now for the manga~!
Under The Dapple Shade v01c01-v02c10 *its gonna take you hours to read, maybe years if you're on dialup, cause nergal made these pretty HQ, and there's a ton of it*
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.10.9-23:45:: YAY FOR BANNERS~! we just recieved tons more banners, i love em bunches too, and we've got a lot going on on the message board too... not much other than that tonight, other than i went out to dinner with a beautiful girl, got contacted by an old friend, got in an arguement with my 4 room mates (eep)... etc. anyways mingtian wo you yi ge zhongwen xiaokao, suoyi wo bixu shuijiao... zaijian =p

Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.10.7-23:05:: You might have wondered where I went, well the University of Washington's fall term just began on Oct.01 so I've been bombarded with homework and readings (over 200 pages) for the last week, not to mention I had a church retreat this weekend, so this is the first real chance I've got to work on the page. However I must say you'll be very very happy with what I've got for you, but first I'd like to thank everyone for voting on noated (even though not many people have rated us very well) and I'd like to thank the 2 people who sent me banners so far, and hope for more of a response, but most of all, all the new members on the forum, keep on talking guys. Now for the manga... Tonight's treats are:
One Piece v02ch12-v03ch26 (that's 15 chapters for people who can't count)
Shaman King v01c07 (a very awesome chapter of Shaman King)

Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.9.26-22:37:: We're looking for more interaction on the site, so we've come up with two ways YOU can help us out. The first is by making banners for us (in any of the 3 standard sizes) using manga characters from the projects we're doing, and submit them Here. Also you can help out by being active on the message board with opinions, conversations or just comedy antics, knowing that someone cares goes a long way ~_~
Oh and vote for us on
noated.com..

Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.9.26-11:04:: Got five more chapters of city hunter for you, that'll be it for a while, i've got to work and get ready for school, i'll add more this weekend though...
City Hunter v01c01-v01c05 (the whole first volume)
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.9.26-3:37:: Late night addition... For starters, the url mangascreener.com works again, so you don't have to remember that other url anymore =) and 6 more chapters of manga have been added to the page tonight.
One Piece v01c06-v02c11
Thats all for tonight, I'll be back tommarow with at least 5 chapters of city hunter for sure.
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

PLEASE DO NOT DISTRO THESE FILES ON IRC OR DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE PAGE!! OR WE WILL STOP RELEASING!

2001.9.25-17:41:: Just added 6 more chapters of manga...
One Piece v01c01-05
Shaman King v01c06

2001.9.25-12:09:: Just re-build the message board, so go and tell me what you guys think of the chapters of manga I added last night... I know the colors are still jumbled, i'll see what I can do about that later ~_~
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.9.25-1:31:: After a long day of html work for both myself and my job, I finished the templates needed for the manga pages themselves, so I quickly put them to use, and uploaded the first 6 chapters of manga in months. I would upload more, but I can only go as fast as my connection will allow (damn dialup). Without further adieu, tonight's manga are:
Ryuuroden v01c01
Shaman King v01c01-05
Now its time for bed ::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.9.24-15:43:: Two months have passed, and in that time there has been a lot of work done, well mostly on manga (like one piece, ryuuroden and shaman king) what didn't move an inch was this page, I made the mistake of putting it in someone else's hands, and changing the v-host on the domain to his server, and nothing got done. However, I'm back in charge as webmaster again so here we go, by the end of October we should have a few hundred chapters of manga online, so just be a little more patient as we tweak the layout a bit more.
::
Ian Smith, Webmaster ::

2001.7.24-6:39:: Well after around 10 days of being silent, i've got some news, we've been working hard on the script for the main page, and we'll have it up as soon as ziff.net sets up phpmyadmin for us, but i doubt it'll happen any time soon, or at all... but if you want to see the script, check it out here. Did a little more work on the Edited manga page, and was cataloging the stuff i'm gonna give away in the manga screener rewards program... some time this week i'll be re-attaching all the manga that was on the page when it moved off of ryokurin.com, maybe then i won't get so many people coming and giving me bad ratings at noated.com... by the way, thats not nice, wait until i'm done with the page to give me 1's ok >_< off to chinese with me, i've got a midterm today and homework due...
