What site is this? I've been wanting a site that does manga better than MAL.

It's mangaupdates, and you should really consider lurking more.

I just never used it's tracking. That's why I'm not familiar with it.

Don't damage control, it only makes you look worse. Just keep quiet and lurk a full year.

I'm so sorry anon.

The release quality is not bad, but I think they put the latest chapter behind a pay wall after two weeks even though it's a monthly series. I wonder if they'll fix that.

>>100628850
I gave up and just read the raws.

Well, most good manga is monthly, so that's expected.

Well I can't really complain since I get it for free anyway.

yeah, someone on /a/ mentioned it in passing and I fell in love with it.

it's not the best, but it certainly kept my attention.

The most suffering part of being a translator is finding so many good series and not having enough time nor energy to translate them all.
