I am Srylanna and I am the current admin of this wonderful group of people known as INP-Mangaz.
This post would have probably been better fit for an earlier date, but due to some other events taking place, I decided to delay it a bit. 2017 has been an eventful year and 2018 promised to be just as eventful so there are some things that require addressing.
Firstly, I want to wish a big welcome to our new staff members who joined us in the last year or so. Jovee, Swannie, Kei, Ansh, Zi Luno, and Akeno have all been a tremendous help in getting out our projects to you, the readers.
Secondly, I want to express my gratitude to all our members who recently retired. Arazez, Tyresonance, and Cygnus have been valued members of our little group and will be sorely missed.
Thirdly, I want to take a moment to put in spotlight the core members, the old gang. Animeace, Hamderbob, Jshaf, Hariya, and Coffee are the wonderful people who deserve the highest praise I can give. Same goes for Butcher, who is actually a member of another group, but helps with Drifters chapters, and Solistia, who occasionally helps us with various redraws.
Fourthly, I want to bring forth a few people who are not part of our team, but might as well be. We value all our readers, but there are a few who have stood out to us and I want to take a moment to express our gratitude to them. TreePeony, miomoo, cats, and Irina have been incredible support with their likes and comments on this blog providing us with motivation to continue our work. They always put a smile on all our faces whenever we get a notification that they acknowledged our work. Thank you so much from all of us over at INP-Mangaz.
Fifthly, I need to address a change in our policies. As you all probably know, Batoto is going down and their reader has already been shut down. We are as of yet unsure how all of that will play out, but it is a huge hit to the manga community online.
For quite a while now, Batoto was the only aggregate site that gave respect to scanlators and respected their wishes and rules. It was a site by community members for community members. Due to that, we have allowed the rehosting of our work there and made it easy for readers to download our chapters and reupload there. As Batoto is no longer working, we will be posting only read online versions of our work.
We urge the readers not to utilize other aggregate sites. They profit off the hard work of others and practically vandalize our work with their own watermarks and compressing. We post all our projects (except Drifters) over at Moon Bunny Cafe without any compressing and with minimum advertisements since they provide us with raws for them. Drifters (and only Drifters), we have decided to post on mangadex in the future. For those who prefer download or who cannot access those websites, please send us an email over at email@example.com and I will add you to a mailing list so you can receive the chapters for download.
That will be all from me.
Thank you for reading this and best regards,
