Just like I promised, here it is! Volume 19 of One Piece coming your way to show you why Crocodile's still the best villain that Oda's come up with. Or at least, he is in my opinion. As for v20, I'm going to give a safe estimate of June for now. That's it for now, enjoy!
And at last, volume 18 is finally done! A lot of good content in this volume, with a particularly memorable last chapter in regards to Luffy's characterization. At the present date, there is no set date for volume 19's release, but hopefully it'll be done sometime this March/April. Well, enjoy this volume for now!
So like the title of this post says, no, we're not dead. Unfortunately, the editor Blacksword ran into troubles mainly caused by a hurricane which stalled progress for quite a while. Well, that and the fact that I (Nep Ece) also gave priority to translating other manga. But anyhoo, I found a new editor and as for the typesetting, I've decided to just do the damn thing myself. Volume 18 is still in progress but it'll be out definitely this month. Sorry again for all the delays, folks.
