Q: What is this place?
A: It’s a website for the scanlation group Hi Wa Mata Noboru. This translates from Japanese as “The Sun Will Rise Again”. It’s named after the DOES song (It’s good. Go listen to it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8x-wx5DOL4s ). It’s also the title of chapter 94 of Gintama and it’s also the Japanese title of the Hemmingway book “The Sun Also Rises”. Starting in February 2010, we’re dedicated to releasing good quality scanlations of under-appreciated series. Or series we feel should be scanlated that aren’t getting done.
Q: What projects do you guys do?
A: Right now we’re working on Toriko and Gintama on a weekly basis, JoJolion on a monthly basis, and probably a bunch of other stuff depending on when you’re reading this. Though if we get more staff we may do more, if possible. More info on the Projects page.
We hope you’ll support the authors and creators of the works we release by buying them when they’re available in a language you understand them or region where you can purchase them.
Q: Can I help you guys, or work on a joint project?
A: New staff is always helpful, and it allows us to work on understaffed projects. If it’s possible to do and the people in our group are willing, we might start a new series. To discuss it with me, contact me at Kewl0210@gmail.com
Q: Will you pick up *insert some manga here*?
A: Sorry, no. We’re already doing too much at the moment, probably. And I generally have plans for something I’m going to do once one thing or another ends, or when my schedule frees up. Our staff isn’t huge and we usually have fewer people than we’d like working on each project because getting dedicated staff is difficult as is managing staff you already have on top of doing the actual scanlating work. We’re not trying to pick anything else up generally.
