Sora no Otoshimono Chapter 69

This has been in the works for a while, and it's finally here! Most of the harder work is being done through MTO's side, though that's because not only do I not have the time to do all the cleaning/redrawing, but I'm no where near a capable enough cleaner/redrawer for this series.

Chapter 70 is already completely clean and redrawn, so that will be out shortly after it's been translated. The cleaning for chapter 71 (the latest chapter) has started, as well.

This is a joint project with MTO.

Enjoy the release!

  1. Dude, are you seriously doing this? You have a whole batch of other series lined up and you had to pick this one? Despite the fact that chapter 68 was released not too long ago?

    Was there any particular reason why? Foolz are only three chapters behind, so it's not exactly enough to warrant a quicker release.

    1. Like I said in the post, this has been in the works for some time now. /Before/ they released chapter 68. When we decided together to do the series, it had been coming on 4 months now since they had released a chapter, and with the lack of any sort of communication from them, we decided to jump on the series.

      Our staff is bulking up so releases are going to start getting closer to what they were before I went back to work in February.

    2. What do you mean by "coming on 4 months now"? If you're talking about a four month gap between 67 and 68, then why did you not release chapter 68 yourselves during that period? Surely you would've started with that chapter.

      It doesn't make sense that the reason why you did this is due to their lack of releases (there are multiple ways to contact the Foolz members, so I don't consider the "lack of communication" to be a valid excuse), and yet, didn't release chapter 68 if it was all "in the works for some time now."

      And also, isn't RZK meant to ONLY pick up stalled/dropped series? Did you really consider this series to be stalled/dropped? It could just be me, but I never considered that at all.

    3. Stop being a dick. Fo0l is to slow with translations, so maybe this group CAN stasify the SnO fans.

    4. Anon(May4), you say as if it's easy to translate a 44 to 46 manga series.

      You did not even try to argue back with the whole "SnO isn't stalled or dropped by FoOlz and hence, it kinda broke the universal scanlation rules."

      As Woxxy have put it, "That said, there is something else I want to say. Competition is the most pointless thing in scanlation.There are so many series to work on, and overlap is redundant. I suggest they to pick up another series, since there’s no point in having two groups translating Sora no Otoshimono. It’s all a big waste of time, and we certainly won’t stop working on it, since we’ve worked on it every month for 3 whole years.

      The series I suggest they pick up is “Daisuki desu!! Mahou Tenshi Kosumasu”. It is a sequel to Sora no Otoshimono. Sugata’s even in it.

      This series hasn’t been touched for almost a whole year, and there are many people who want to read it, including the members of FoOlRulez. You wouldn’t get a single hater on you for scanlating that. On the contrary, you’ll probably be very well-received."

      Please respond.

    5. @P-Man that maybe true, but seriously if a group of translators are getting late with releasing translations then I get some question marks. SnO wasn't the only one where they are behind schedule, they just released a whole stack of one series at once because they where far behind. So imo its a good thing if RKZ is taking something over from them.

      Also, is there a sequel to SnO?!?! How, SnO isn't even finished yet.

    6. "that maybe true, but seriously if a group of translators are getting late with releasing translations then I get some question marks. SnO wasn't the only one where they are behind schedule, they just released a whole stack of one series at once because they were far behind."

      Firstly, if they do a mass release that caught up, that just meant that they prefer to this method of release. I don't see any wrong with it. There has only been about 1 month since 68's release and the universal law of 6 months before another group can officially take it.

      "Also, is there a sequel to SnO?!?! How, SnO isn't even finished yet."

      Umm I don't know how to break it to you, but sequels can be also made hen the original story is set. That's why there are also prequels.

      Maho Teni Cosmos is set about 6 years after the timeline of SnO, it's not my fault if you're unfamiliar with Minazuki-sensei's works.

    7. I agree with you Anon but P-Man isn't exactly wrong about it, since the author is exactly the same. But rather than as a sequel, please treat it as a completely different series from SnO. And... rather than blaming RZK for picking SnO (Since I don't have any problem if I can get it faster without disregarding qualities), I would prefer to blame the World Three guys for picking and abandoning projects so easily (well maybe staff issues). So, would you consider picking Cosmos, Derek? :P

  2. I can only see picking a fight with foolz as ending badly.

    1. No, I contacted foolz few weeks ago about this

      Tbh, I have a very good relationship with foolz, and we (Fool and us) are fine with this - we will do it as what we want to, since we all love this series, and we took it because we had everything: staffs, raws, time...

      There's no fight, we're all working for it in peace.

      And remember that I'm the one who cleaned chapter 68 for foolz. So there's nothing for any of us to get mad. We got our final decision long ago bro

    2. The consensus at Foolz is "we can't do anything about it and we won't get mad because we're mature people".

    3. I'd just like to point out that in your Reader's Choice II poll there were no votes for Sora no Otoshimono.

      On the other hand, Seto no Hanayome gained quite a high number of votes. TonaGura got a few votes as well. Perhaps you should listen to the readers before taking a series that we're still working on?

      I heard rumors that you just did the easy shit that can be done in two minutes and provided raws, not even redraws. You're not even in the credits page. You should stop bragging if you didn't do anything even worth mentioning.

  3. Well, first of all, thanks a lot for the release but i hope this doesn't turn into a fight between the groups.

  4. I'm so glad that a competent group has finally picked this up. Hopefully you guys don't get into too much trouble because of it.

  7. Please make the progress for In Bura :(

  8. Awesome. Thank you guys so much for picking this up, since there are so many of us who really love this series. The other guys started to act like little divas and bitch and pout when the vietgroup did a release, so it was obvious there was some disfunctionality there.

    Also, don't let other people (lackeys of the other group) come here and bully you into dropping this or arrogantly tell you what series you should be doing. There are so so many more of us who really appreciate that you have taken up this beloved series.

  9. Well, I might just wait for foolrulez version except there's an official announcement that they drop this series mmm...
