    What is the money going to be used for exactly? Upgrading servers or making a new website?

    • TheGameTagerZ

      It’s explained on the Patreon. To pay to keep this website up and to actually give us room to pay our translators more often.

      • Scott Baker

        well if your paying translators.. then there being paid for job us donating so you can use that money to pay them feels more like “you donate money to us so when we pay them we dont lose our money” thats not how life or donations work.

        • Scott Baker

          there your employ’s it should be you that pays them not the donators money.

          • TheGameTagerZ

            We do pay them but sometimes it’s the difference of pay them or keep the site up another month. Obviously you aren’t interested in helping in any way I’m just warning everyone that eventually this place is going to shut down. This website even in ad revenue doesn’t even pay 1/4 of this site. If we didn’t need help we wouldn’t ask. Keep the conspiracy theories to yourself please. I don’t know how much more open about our situation I can be.

            Once the website bill is taken care of we can pay our translators all the time instead of sometimes. For example, people complain that we dont do complete menu translations and dont realize we pay out of pocket to do what we can. Again if you’re one of those people who don’t care or can’t wait for this place to go down then please ignore this thread as we take this issue very seriously.

        • The donated money would go to keeping the servers running for this website. The money that we translators get come from the pockets of the top guys.
          I only see money from their pockets not from donations.

    A new zenkai battle trailer came out

  • Skorm94

    Wow guess I never really realized how much money these things cost. Not right know but in a couple of weeks after I get my paycheck I’ll def throw some dollars your way. Really appreciate all the work you guys are doing.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Appreciate it. This there’s a low amount of support for things like prizes we decided to just give them away to those who donate $5. Even a dollar is fine too honestly. I appreciate your concern it really means a lot.

    Maybe I’ll get around to it soon.
    If I donate $20 what could I have translated, only japanese?

    • TheGameTagerZ

      From Japanese to English. I’d be mindful that it isn’t a one time thing. All those patreons are monthly but it will also come with the previous rewards too.

      • Bdock3601

        I understood that it was a monthly commitment…though if it’s only japanese translations then you would probably end up translating anything japanese that I’m interested in which would go against the ” isn’t already or wont be covered on this website.”. I’ll consider it though

        • TheGameTagerZ

          Well some people usually find comments Kishimoto have stated in books, or maybe they want a few lines translated from something they spotted on narutoforums and so on.

          Or even stuff for old games, or game series we don’t cover. I know there has been requests for game guides to some very obscure games like the PS3 Sakigake game.

          • Ahtma Senju

            Just wondering, I have three chapters of an untranslated ongoing manga I’m reading (with only knowledge of hiragana and katakana and few kanji). If I was a $20 patron, could I get some of it translated by you guys? I’d understand if that was a bit too much considering the examples you just gave.

            • TheGameTagerZ

              If the $20 a month was consistent im sure someone like Jack would be up to it, but probably get it done a chapter at a time or a chapter a month or something.

              Curious which series is it? Kings Game or something?

              • Ahtma Senju

                Ushiro: Fukigen na Shinigami. It’s a monthly series anyway and there’s only three chapters out, so a translated chapter a month wouldn’t be all that bad lol.

                • TheGameTagerZ

                  How many pages roughly? Like the average 20 right?

                  • Ahtma Senju

                    30-40 pages would be the higher end of it.

                    • TheGameTagerZ

                      I’ll ask him. I’m sure if he can take his time with it he’d consider.

                    • Ahtma Senju

                      That’d be bomb. I’m heavily leaning twoards donating anyway because you guys are awesome, but if I can get this I’ll definitely be a $20 patron.

                    • TheGameTagerZ

                      Glad to hear that. I’ll try to get back to you soon.

                    • TheGameTagerZ

                      He said he’ll do it.

                    • TheGameTagerZ

                      Hey he said he’s down for it btw.

                    • Ahtma Senju

                      You’ve got my $20, you beautiful souls.

                    • TheGameTagerZ

                      Check your messages on Patreon. Sent you a gift as well as need the link for the material that needs to be translated.

                    • Ahtma Senju

                      Yeah, I will.

          • Bdock3601

            ah well yeah, that wouldn’t be very useful for what i was thinking, i guess i fall more into the 5 dollar category then

  • Scarlet

    Hello?

    • TheGameTagerZ

      Hello? lol

      • Scarlet

        I thought SG had more action lol

        • TheGameTagerZ

          Not sure what you mean. Unless you’re looking for off topic discussion we don’t really allow that here.

          • Scarlet

            I actually wanted to convince people to spam SI but there isn’t anyone here.

            • TheGameTagerZ

              No need for that.

              • Scarlet

                You should come to JG.

  • Illumi

    I hope it won’t get to the point of having to be taken down. This is a good website and I appreciate the high quality scans provided with translations.

    • TheGameTagerZ

      We’re preparing for what can happen down the line. The Patreon isn’t going as decently as we hoped, but I’m still glad to see people supporting.

  • Kyuuki-san

    Wow this brings a pretty serious mood kinda, I’ll definitely see what I can do to help out.
