Discord: Ever since the removal of the shoutbox several months ago, we’ve been looking for a proper alternative for reader to staff communication. After noticing the substantial growth that Discord has gone over in the past few years, we’ve decided to make a separate server dedicated for shitposting and talking to staff. Discuss scanlation, chapter releases, concerns, spoilers, anime, games, or anything else. You can find a direct invitation to the server on the right to drop in whenever you like.
Manga: Over the past few months we’ve accumulated many more titles that we’re excited to release consistently. Kalyx, Talentless Nana, and Souboutei Must Be Destroyed are all fantastic, and we’re glad that you (generally speaking) love them too. However despite this, we’ll be avoiding picking up new titles for a while now to prevent staff from being stretched too thin. One series that wasn’t mentioned that we’re working on though is none other than Boku Girl. Several friends that have been brought in showed interest in doing chapter 80 and onward due to the lack of acceptance of other scanlations in varying communities. While we generally avoid working on something that someone has already worked on, these preexisting scanlations aren’t allowed on Batoto and show slightly less quality. We hope to satisfy many people out there and appreciate the work that Boku Boy and others have done to fill the gap left by Boku no Manga.
Staff: Helvetica has had a slow, yet steady growth since it’s foundation. What used to be 10 members grew to 20, 30, and now 43. With 9 translators, 11 editors, 9 proofreaders, 11 typesetters, 5 quality checkers, we’re more than joyous with the releases we provide as well as our own internal community that has developed. As always, we’re constantly looking for blood fresh to help out with our new titles, so be sure to check our credits page for details on specifically what needs your help.
Finally we want to say thank you to everyone for offering help, donations, and just reading. Even though some pieces we publish are overlooked, simply being able to provide literature in a language that companies have otherwise showed no interest in is incredibly fulfilling. Happy Summer!
