In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

Some people seem to think this news post is a joke or something similar. I assure you, I am being totally serious. Don't take it lightly.

And we can figure out if someone is trying to frame a group. We're not naive, so don't even try.

PS: Yes, I did an exact copy/paste from last year's warning. Too lazy to write up something new.

A just ruler amongst tyrants

I forgot about April Fools... o.O as usual.

Gotta be careful if I don't want pranks pulled on me... That said, need to think some to play on others. XD

I hate that day.
Jokes are funny and all, but a lot of people don't know the border of it. Making someone cripple for their live is NOT a joke.

When their is hope, their is live.

Thanks for reminding me that date is upon us. And it's good to know MU has a firm approach regarding what you mentioned. Thanks for all your amazing work.

Yeah, sensescans just released a "trolling" chapter, c220 of Magi, as some people called it in that thread. They obviously got sarcastic comments of thanks. It was low quality and made absolutely no sense. It's one of the series I actually read rather than only download and add it to my collection to gather "dust".

Yeah, don't mess with lambochopsil, he has a very particular set of skills; skills that he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make him a nightmare for people like you. If you don't April fool with him, that'll be the end of it. He will not look for you, he will not pursue you. But if you don't, he will look for you, he will find you, and he will ban you.

I was just reminded of the Yamada-kun to 7-in no Majo chapter released as a joke last year....and now I'm in a daze, staring at my screen, thinking how unbelievable it is that that was a whole year ago.

Damn I feel old.

My list:FMA, Death Note, DeadmanWonderland, Code geass, Detecive Conan, Pandora Hearts, Black Butler, Loveless, Kamui, Girlfriends, Murder Princess, PsychoPass, Steins; gate, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Ghost stories (English dub)...
