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.

Yeah, those joke releases are annoying. Got fooled last year too.

This year will be annoying, because Easter is on the same day.

Chapter 65.5 of Ore ga Ojou-sama Gakkou ni "Shomin Sample" Toshite Rachirareta Ken appears to be an April Fools release.

I misread completely (soooo sleepy) and I, for some reason, thought you were going to close the website. It woke me up suddenly. Geez... This would be quite a prank xD

Eeeeh, just let them, the day wouldnt feel right without some fake releases.

No! They can do it on their own site. You know how annoying it is to see April Fool's releases from 5 years ago listed as the real deal? If you let it pass, these things slip.

I still hold a grudge of fake releases back in the dial-up days where downloading a chapter meant maybe 30 minutes to an hour of your life. (Nevermind that there are some areas/countries where this is still true.)

Also, fake releases are literally the most unoriginal and lazy prank in the scanlation world. Nevermind inconsiderate.

Hear, hear. Agree 100%

Posting fake releases are unoriginal, not funny and waste everyone's time. It waste time from the BakaManga crew, the readers who check it out and the scanslator who gets question about the missing release. Really, where is the humour in that? Also, nowadays, pranks holds a different definition thanks to Youtubers. Urg. Where is humanity going (....wait, how did I managed to get to this point haha).

People not having their time wasted should not welcome it on others.

Yes, please hammer any offenders mercilessly and with much prejudice.

C'mon, keep the grade-school-level jokes to yourselves, people.....or at least don't try to force them on the entire rest of the world while you're at it >_<
