And so, a 25-year long story reaches its conclusion. With this, the task GMT was formed ten years ago to perform is completed. On behalf of all members of GMT, past and present, thank you for following us all these years. It has been a pleasure bringing you this series. We hope you will continue to follow our next project, Paradise Residence, in collaboration with Roselia Scans.
This was a bit sudden, but we've finished the first chapter of the new Paradise Residence manga!
To those of you who've followed the Paradise Residence series as it was released over the past few years, this may seem a bit confusing. But they resetted the chapter number to make this the official start of the series.
The previously released chapters (all 8 of them) are now considered a prequel of sorts and rebranded as "Paradise Residence Zero"
We will follow suit because not doing so will cause even more confusion in future chapters.
For the first time in years, we have released a chapter of AMG that no one else had gotten to first. And we are now one chapter closer to the ending.
In some ways, this chapter was more difficult than I remember Afternoon scans being. I will try to get 307 done this month as well, But no promises.
We are pleased to announce that we are now working with Roselia Scans to scanlate Paradise Residence by Kosuke Fujishima that will be replacing Ah! My Goddess in Afternoon. To begin with, here are chapters 7 and 8 which were previously untranslated.
These pages are a bit larger than usual. That may or may not remain the case with future chapters, we'll see.
Also, expect an accelerated release for the last three chapters of AMG. The Taiwanese magazine we were using for raws has ceased publication so I'll be switching to Afternoon scans instead. And since we have scans of all three chapters, expect back to back releases for them.
For those of you who haven't heard the news yet, A!MG will be ending in only two more chapters (four for us) in the June '14 issue of Afternoon to be released on April 25th.
What does this mean for GMT? Our task won't be done with the final chapter. There are still many "Between 1 and 4" panels that we haven't gotten around to editing. It seems they may be released in a neater format with the limited edition of the final volume in July. I'll wait and see for those.
Beyond that, there are a number of possibilities for future work. Mangas, AMG books, etc. It'll all depend on translator interest.
Last chapter, Urd realized something about her origins. How will she feel about the answer?
I've also included a scan of this month's magazine cover. The scan doesn't do justice to how impressive it is, though. It is a metalized cover with refractive effects when you tilt it.
