Jumbor Chapter 10!

Posted by on

Read and download Jumbor Chapter 10 Remember back when I said that I like to have Jumbor releases be close to monthly for a while? And that chapter 10 was coming out soon? Well... here it is!

And it starts with 3 color pages! Basically the start of every volume of Jumbor has these color pages. So the next ones will come with chapter 15. I also want to give a shout out to BadS for returning to help out with the color page spread! That saved me hours of work! Thanks!

Now to put that extra time working on the next release!


The More Yoh Know!

But if you are looking for some more related to Shaman King... check out The More Yoh Know! series on Patch-Cafe or Tumblr! Twice a week there is a new Shaman King factoid you may not remember or ever heard of! Number 10, which released today has a little Shaman King Kang Zeng Bang trivia.

Jumbor 9 & 1 Decade of Mankin-Trad!

Posted by on

Read and download Jumbor Chapter 9 It's been a long time coming... but here's Jumbor chapter 9! Sorry for the delay, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless! Also, we are already hard at work on chapter 10, so that should come out in a little while. But the real reason you are here is...

Today, March 4th, 2015 is Mankin-Trad's Birthday!
We are now 10 years old.
That's a decade! We started off as just a French scanlation group for Shaman King manga. The original key members being Kamisama, Nux, and BadS. The later two have moved onto other things since then. but Kami has been around since day 1!
We've moved from servers to servers, expanded and condensed the website, added near countless staff members, but we've made it all this time. It's kinda crazy to think we've been doing this for a full decade now. And we do it because... we just want to know what happens next in the story of Shaman King. It's as simple as that.
I doubt that most people reading this remember all the way back to the beginning, and that's fine. In the internet world, 10 years is a really long time. But I hope during this time you've help support Hiroyuki Takei and the Shaman King series by purchasing as much stuff as you can. I know I have!
So thank you to everyone who has helped with a release during these last 10 years, and thank you to all of you for enjoying our releases!
Now onto the fun stuff! Since it's a birthday party, right!?
Here's a very large image (7MBs) that contains almost everyone of our "cover images" that have been featured on the main page of Mankin-Trad. I'm missing only a few for the English releases. 
Also, on my tumblr, I'll be posting a bunch of images from Mankin-Trad's past, so if you are interested be sure to check that out!
Oh, and as a temporary change... I've updated the banner to the earliest image file I had on record (at least 2007)!

Shaman King Zero chapter 10

Posted by on

Read Shaman King Zero Chapter 10 And here's the final Shaman King Zero chapter for now This chapter was released in Japan at the same time as Flowers chapter 29. Sorry for the delay, but hopefully it's worth the wait!

But even though this is the last Zero chapter released in Japan, we still have some more Shaman King Zero releases coming up! We'll also be working on the "draft version" of the first Shaman King Zero chapter. So if you ever wanted to see what a complete version of Takei's original draft looked like... we'll release that as a full chapter too! Plus we'll do a quick version of the Zero volume 2 extras as well.

So right now there isn't any scheduled chapters in the Shaman King universe. We are in a waiting period. Be sure to purchase the volumes from Japan if you can! But we still have some more stuff coming here, that is both Shaman King and... Jumbor related!

Jumbor chapter 9 is coming up next! Look forward to that too!

Happy Holidays 2014!

Posted by on

Hello all!

I just wanted to take a minute to wish you all a Happy Holidays! Any and all religions! Even if you have a celebratory reason this time of year or not. Since isn't that what "Shaman King" is all about anyways? Wink

If you've refreshed the webpage in the last week, you'll notice our 2014 holiday banner! This year's theme was more based on food! Since now is a good enough time to start eating more than you should! I'll change up the banner again once the new year rolls around.

Next up, you probably want to know what's in the pipeline for the rest of this year and into next!

  • Shaman King Zero chapter 10 & more!?
  • Jumbor chapters 9 & many more chapters!
  • Danball Senki: Jin Kaidou Story chapter 1 & two more chapters at some point
  • Shaman King Flowers volume extras (volumes 1-6)

All of those releases are at various stages of release. When it's done, we'll release! So look forward to those in the future.


Again, a Happy Holidays to all! And if you haven't read this yet... be sure to check out the "Merry Christmas On Board" release from 2 years ago!

Final Shaman King Flowers chapter!

Posted by on

Read and download Shaman King Flowers Chapter 29

So we've been down this road once twice before. The "end" of the Shaman King series again. But like Hana, it just can't seem to stay dead.

And neither will we! Though there won't be any new "Flowers" chapters for a while... we will still have a ton of Shaman King releases here at Mankin-Trad. We've focused alot on the monthly releases for the chapters, so some of the other stuff has gone by the wayside. But not anymore!

We still have all of the "Shaman King Flowers" volume extras to go through. Plus there is one more Shaman King Zero chapter. And then there is a bunch of other stuff, like all of that on our Projects page. So we aren't winding down, we are only just getting started for our exciting 10 year anniversary next year!

Keep checking back, and we'll have some more stuff to suprise you!


And of course, thanks to Jezzy and Dit with their hard work through all of these Flowers chapters!
