To wonderful staff and awesome readers…

Hello.

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. For those who prefer download or who cannot access those websites, please send us an email over at inpmangaz.staff@gmail.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,

Srylanna.

Drifters 65 & IRC Channel

Hello!

First off, regarding the missing pages for Drifters 65, we really have nothing to do with that. The same zip file was uploaded to batoto and mediafire and we double checked that. The one on mediafire never had any missing pages. We are unsure as to what happened on batoto, but it had to have been a mistake on their part and this is not the first time something like that had happened. We suggest our readers to check the mediafire release should they notice discrepancies as that is really the only one we have a full control over.

On a less exasperating note, INP-Mangaz has a functional IRC channel once more. It is hosted on snoonet server and is named #INP-Mangaz. Easiest way to access it is just to follow the link.

It is important to note that we will not be abandoning our wordpress account, but we wish to have a more direct interaction with our readers.

Looking forward to meeting you there,

INP-Mangaz

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!
