So, as some of you probably noticed, things died here again pretty fast after the last few releases. Long story short: we can’t keep up. The original project is basically dead, our original TL quit, he started working, our new one, Arnastia, god bless him, also has work and other things to take care of, so he’s not always free to translate, and I’m also pretty caught up with life lately to the point where some chapters have been translated here for a while and no one did absolutely nothing with them.
Jump to today and one of our readers said that a new group had picked up MIX! Woo. We checked them out, they seem like good people, the chapter they released also seemed fine TL-wise. I also found out that they tried to contact us asking for a status update all the way back in November (and I only saw that e-mail today, hi), so I think it’s only fair we, well, pass the torch to them. That way you’ll probably get MIX faster.
The group is Rycolaa, and their website can be found here. They have released Chapter 39 yesterday, and I’ve tried to contact them and sent them the translations for 40 and 41 which we already had here in order to try and speed up the process. If, by any chance, their project gets dropped, we’ll look into continuing from where they stop, but at least for now this is Tenko signing off from the MIX project.
We hope y’all enjoyed these 38 chapters over the last couple years and had fun with Adachi just like we did! And now it’s time to pass the baton to our friends over at Rycolaa, as that just seems fitting after finding out that the ‘Touch’ title was decided by Adachi because of the ‘baton touch’ expression, lol. Cheers, everyone!

So, let’s say that the number ‘3’ is very important for this post. It’s important because, this month, we’re getting not one, not two, but THREE entirely new MIX chapters out! Which is still less than one chapter per week if we actually stop and look at things that way, but let’s not do it for the sake of keeping this positive, okay? I mean, it’s thrice as much MIX as we’ve been able to deliver in the last few months, so time to celebrate!
Now, on the other hand, the number 3 is also a dangerous number. Because DARK SOULS 3. Dark Souls 3 is coming out and I’ve already been told some of our few staff members will have, in their words, their ‘life consumed by it’. So we might take a bit more for the next chapter. And then we might not. Who knows!
All jokes aside, though, I hope y’all enjoy these three, and we’re gonna do our best to get more out as soon as possible. I personally really liked the stuff in this batch, and while there isn’t really a lot of development in the sports side of things, it feels like Adachi was on a roll with his sense for comedy. Some hilarious jokes, and also a bunch of great one-liners. Some chapters I even though that he must’ve had a hard time picking exactly what line he’d want to use as the title for it, because they were packed with witty remarks.
As usual, head to the sidebar and pick your preferred method of reading it! ‘Til next time, cheers!

Here it is! New MIX so everyone can start the week just fine. This was actually a preeeetty good chapters, full of those witty one-liners that Adachi is so good at. Had me smiling a bunch of times, so I hope y’all will enjoy it just as much!
Also, some good news, we actually have a few chapters already translated from the next ones, so hopefully we’ll be able to put them out soon-ish! Will we catch-up?! Who knows! But we’re trying, haha.
So, without further ado, head to the sidebar and pick your preferred method of reading. ‘Til next time, cheers!

Hasn’t even been a full month since the last chapter. Holee crap, we’re on fireeeeee! haha.
Okay, maybe not! But anyway, here’s more MIX! And 35’s been translated already too, so it should take less than a month as well. And then we’ll see how it goes, but hopefully we can at least keep this rhythm going, lol.
As for this chapter, it’s more baseball, and it seems like we might be nearing the end of the match now. All with that typical Adachi humour here and there! Hope you all enjoy it. As usual, head to the sidebar and pick your preferred method of reading it. ‘Til next time, cheers!

Happy new year, everyone. We’re not releasing it as quickly as you’d all would have liked, but we keep moving on, slowly but surely, lol (wait I said this last time too, it’s getting old.). Anyhow, here’s MIX 33! Baseball intensifies in this one, but it’s not the most eventful of chapters out there. I have word that the translator is working on 34 tonight, but don’t trust me on this, because I’ve learned not to trust Arnastia either. Basically, we’re all terrible people who keep raising everyone’s hopes and then take two months to get a chapter out. Sorry! haha.
Also, might be worth noting that the Mediafire folder apparently died midway through the latest hiatus and until I can talk to the guy who ran it the MF releases are down. Batoto and Nyaa are still good, so have a blast at those two!
ALSO², bit of a disclaimer here: I know people comment on the blog between these huge chunks of time we take to release stuff, but we’ll let you know if the project is ever completely dropped. I’d love to get it out faster, but in the end the translator’s busy and there’s not much I can do. So I also refrain from reading comments here mainly because I feel rather bad about how long we’re taking. That said, MIX is not dropped and if it ever comes to that situation, I’ll be the first one to post here and make that quite clear. It might take a while to come out, but it will eventually show up. Let’s just hope we can get more chapters out in 2016 than in 2015…
Last but not least, this has nothing to do with Adachi whatsoever but watch Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu. It’s on Crunchyroll and it’s great. Anime is saved. ‘Til next time, cheers!

Time for our two chapters of the semester, guys! Again, sorry for all the delays and what not, but it’s the same old story about staff people disappearing, people being busy, people not wanting to work due to MMO addiction (hi) and so on, so forth. But hey, it’s going, slowly but surely. I already asked the TL to get back to TL’ing since we got a new editor/proofreader to replace Phil, who’s stepped down from the job, so maybe (but don’t take this too seriously) we’ll manage to release more in less than 4 months, the next time. We’ll see.
That said, though, do enjoy these two chapters that are very baseball focused! Meisei’s finally back in action with our new two heroes facing off quite a strong team right off the bat. As always, lots of Adachi humour (and lazyness, haha). Enjoy! ‘Til next time, cheers!

I hear there’s some Russian rocket about to come crashing down on Earth, and that coupled with our release of not one but two chapters could very well be A SIGN. A sign of what I couldn’t really tell you myself, either, but rest assured that weird things might start happening and the dinosaurs may once again walk the Earth.
Jokes aside, though, sorry for the huge hiatus, yet again. We don’t plan these, but then that’s how these things go. Life picks up for some, others end up getting really lazy – that would be me – and yeah. But hey, it’s moving again, apparently! The translator even said he’d do 31 today, so maybe expect it soon-ish? But not too soon-ish as to not jinx it, ’cause we know what happens when we get close to catching up on MIX.
But that’s enough from me and my terrible humour. You know the drill by now, so head to the sidebar and pick your preferred method of reading it! These two are slow chapters, but then MIX is a slow series in general, but I’m sure any Adachi fan will smile a couple times with those classic funny moments from the master. ‘Til next time, cheers!

So, everyone enjoying the weekend? Here’s some more Adachi goodness to help. Seems like we’re finally getting more details on the Tachibana brothers story, and Adachi remains as elusive as ever about Tatsuya, while always dropping little hints and nods to our Touch team, haha.
Anyway, not much to say, so I’ll be brief. As usual, head to the sidebar and pick your preferred way of reading the chapter. Only one chapter left til we catch up, although 30 should be coming out soon-ish too. Let’s go! ‘Til next time, cheers!

Another week, another MIX chapter! The dream’s closer than ever, just two chapters behind now. Will Arnastia get 29 translated before 30 comes out? I don’t know, but let us hope so! Anyhow, jokes aside, seems like Adachi’s getting into gear for some baseball action in the near future, which is always promising. Also, on this chapter’s page 22 there’s a sign that basically reads “Dog”. In case anyone’s left wondering why such a thing exists, Arnastia wrote an explanation:
This is a sign saying there’s a vaccinated dog kept in that house. It doesn’t necessarily say there’s a guard dog, or a dangerous dog; just that there’s a licensed dog. It seems these are given at the vet every year with a license when vaccinating a dog against rabies. Such a license is mandatory under japanese law to be allowed to keep a dog, and is intended as a rabies outbreak prevention strategy. This is one such sticker.
The 21 on that picture refers to the 21st year of the Heisei era, 2009 on the gregorian calendar, and seems to be included in the stickers, which are meant to be placed in plain sight, to inform of what year the dog was last vaccinated.
As you can see, nothing too important, but then again it won’t hurt to know, either. With that out of the way, you know the drill. Head to the sidebar, pick your preferred method of reading and enjoy. ‘Til next time, cheers!

Here we go, ladies and gentlemen, new MIX just out of the oven! This was a pretty nice chapter with some interesting reveals, to say the least. We also went “!!” at how one character got mentioned, even though it was basically one huge “unimportant” tease, hahaha. Anyway, definitely one of the more interesting chapters as of late for Touch fans, and surely leaves you wondering about a bunch of plot points that may get developed in the future.
Also, a quick note: on page 27 of this month’s chapter, Touma is reminiscing about a little conversation he had with Nishimura back in chapter 11. Some of you might notice the translation is slightly different, and we apologize for it. Basically, the translator misunderstood what Nishimura was referring to back then, and this new translation has been updated to reflect what he really meant: the fact that both Meisei and Sumikou aren’t actual threats nowadays.
With all that said, you know the drill. Head to the sidebar and pick your preferred method of reading it. No torrents for now as Nyaa remains more down than up, but we’ll fix that eventually! ‘Til next time, cheers!
