Isn't this manga being released like once a week by the group scanlating it? That's pretty good as it is, and I'm not sure where you're getting this idea that non-daily releases implies a lack of interest...

It's not necessarily lack of interest you also have to think of when did the group pick up this series and how many others they are scanning as well. If there were already a ton of chapters out before you start scanning it's gonna take a while to catch up. Just be patient and thankful that their group is putting the time and effort to put out a good series at a steady pace.

Scanlating is not as easy at it first seems.
I suggest that you just wait.

LOL WOW, are you freakin` serious? This series is one of the most frequently-released series I've seen. You're really impatient. o_o

And asking something like this isn't really allowed anyway~

P.S...... Even scanlators have LIVES!

Oops, misread. But still. My point stands!

Doesn't look like people entirely get what he's asking. Either it wasn't immediately being scanlated after the series first started and got quite a back up or sometimes staff disappear and scanlating gets haulted. It's being released weekly now, but because it was a long time before someone picked it up, it's not anywhere near the current chapter. And weekly is rather good for this series, I've seen the raws and they involve a good deal of large redraws. Not too many people have the dedication to keep doing that week-to-week.

well, it could just be that they started doing it late, like when there were 20 volumes and they release a ch. a week. i think this series also releases weekly in a magazine, so that's probably why it seems like the gap will never close. but u can always join the group and help streamline releases. ^^

Probably because the manga came out in 2000 and they STARTED in 2008. Herp derp.
