April Fools' Day Warning
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.
