10 Year Anniversary

Well, I know what you must be thinking right about now.

“God, you guys must be old as dirt now!” XD

I assure you, our staff and I are still in the prime time of our youth! Well, most of us anyways. *cough*

That being said, the staff would like to thank all the readers who have supported us over the years, and we’ll give you a little bit of an origin story on how INP first began.

Shortly after, in 2012 the forum sister’s anime streaming  site INSTANTZ.net was suddenly hit by DMCA forcing the owner KING to take it down in compliance. However, all of the sites members where left in the dark on the matter and then the message board was also suddenly removed. Long story short, many heated words where exchanged, other sites created but through it all the INP-Mangaz Team was left intact. In 2014, together with Al, we started a new site ,with long time members like Bluts, Peksi, and Creeps while I began assembling a new scanlation team.

Along the way I met the now Rock-Star translator of Drifters,  JShaf, and from there we snowballed our way into our current line up of awesome members. Still, we have met a lot of challenges along the way. Once again, we were left without our home-site. And many members of our staff have been overrun with RL issues, myself included. Through it all, the mission of giving the masses the highest quality manga has never changed.

The one thing that sets us apart from other big groups, many of which have died out, is the trait of self-sacrifice. To reference one my current reading favorites Boku no Hero Academia, everyone needs to be “ALL FOR ONE”. The torch must be passed on from generation to generation. Don’t worry though, my light is far from burned out yet! As you will see, we have a ton of upcoming releases for you today. So stay tuned and to all our previous manga staff i would like to give a sincere heartfelt thanks for all your previous work. Abc123, Kamikazeeee, Hyrrokkin, speechless, SilverBlade_, pirate_11, Tsu, Alpha, KruXIs, max mahito, warefly, Jerek, dioz, neko, kuro, Ge4ce, Creeps,… The door is always open on Skype!

PS: If you made it through this long-ass post, I salute you and sorry for my long-winded ramblings! XD May we last another decade! Cheers to Jshaf, Arazez, Bob, Hari and Anna!

    • Hello. Ace is currently unreachable (probably internet screwing up), but we will pass on your message. Do you want anyone else from the group to add you to the group chat or do you just wish to contact Ace?

  2. Wow, this brings back some nostalgia. I used to be in the first iteration of INP-mangaz with Abc1233, Kamikazee, Twobit, Hyrrokin…etc. I was just randomly looking up what happened to the INP-forums/instantz and it led me to this site. Hope you guys keep going strong!
