In Accordance with r/manga (Chapter Downloads)

Recently we were banned from r/manga. We hope our actions sate the requirements to get unbanned.

In 2017, on our old site championscans.weebly.com, we didn’t have an online reader. Each page was manually uploaded to the site and was downscaled horribly to fit. As such, downloads were made available to patrons to read in their full size on release. Following that, the next day we released the full-size version on Batoto and downloads made available on our site. We haven’t updated our Patreon since then.

Up till now, patrons of any tier could download on release.
From now on, all chapter downloads will be made available to the public through our patreon, for free. In regard to the old releases, removing the patron lock on every post would take too long. Instead, we’ll drop a link to all prior downloads once we’ve gathered them all on Patreon.

We apologize for our [lack of] actions.

Sir Champion | Champion Scans

P.S. Since November, we’ve had a good, stable server/reader that can handle loads far greater than it currently does with no performance drops. Yet, we see a lot of people complaining about the reader. Can those with complaints let us know what’s wrong? We’ll work on improving the reader as soon as possible. Please let us know by joining our Discord and dropping a message. It would be much appreciated!

Edit: Here’s the post on Patreon addressing and giving access to downloads.

Edit2: Thank you, we were unbanned. Enjoy downloading.

Now and Future Events – In Pursuit of Happiness

Changes are happening, both now and in the future.

In the now process is us not being involved with MangaDex moving forward. In light of recent events…

TL;DR – Ceased using MD, Changing group name, v2 of old chapters and more changes to come.

Edit: Created a page for the post since it was taking up too much space on the home page.

Addressing Some Things

Addressing Some Things

This post covers; applications, hopeful trainees, commissions/hentai, misdirected hate and an update for a couple projects. There’s a few other topics not included that may or may not be covered at a later date. For the most part, this was made to answer recent emails – both the good and bad ones.

We Need Translators!

recruitment-pageWe’re in need of translators!

We aren’t asking for you exclusively, as long as you can provide translations that’s perfectly fine. Especially because of the time of year (everyone is busy), we won’t ask a lot from you. If any voluntary Japanese to English translators would be interested in helping out, please contact us by either the contact form or messaging Tallguy#6529 on Discord!

A Quick Fix You Can Do (For Old Releases)

Although double-spread viewing works (the default mode when chapters load), here’s a quick fix you can do for single page and scroll mode  while we work on a permanent fix.

Note: This is only for desktop/laptop users as mobile devices work fine.

Step 1. Enter Scroll Mode (Bottom-right side of page)

Step 2. Select ‘Fit to Height’

Scroll viewing fixed.

Step 3. Exit Scroll Mode

Step 4. Select Single Page View

Single page viewing fixed.

From now on the credits page may appear at the start or end depending on the chapter. This is because of how the reader interprets page count with double pages. There’s a few other bugs present, however, none of them affects the reading experience.

Edit: Apparently putting the credits page 2nd fixes quite a few issues… Scroll mode works fine, but single page view still needs a bit of work.

Edit 2: Okay, problem solved. Single page view seems to be fine [for the most part]. From now we’ll put the credits page 2nd. For older releases you’ll still need to do the fix above for the time being.

Update about releases

We’re agreeing that it’s taking too long with the site so we planned to release chapters on the old one or on something like MD but we are currently not able to have access to our finished chapters because of reasons.
There are a shit ton of chapters ready but we’re just not able to release them because of it.
We’re sorry we haven’t released anything since the first day of the batchathon and I’ll be back again, if there are still no releases soon, with more info

[Update] Upgrade Status

Improvements and upgrades are underway.

As we already have a new database/reader 80% complete on a different server, the batchathon will be delayed so that we can finish, setup and transfer onto it. Additional image servers will be coming shortly to further performance and stability.

At this moment in time, I can’t say with certainty the length of the delay. We could be back up and running as soon as the 24th if things go smoothly.

Thank you for your understanding.

05/12 Edit: Soon done. Taking longer than expected due to time constraints.
