Is this the official site for Kaguya-sama?
No, this entire site is fan-made, and we only host fan-made translations. The official printed release is done by Viz Media. There are no official translations for We Want to Talk About Kaguya, the official doujin, and Oshi no Ko.
Why did you make this?
At some point, the team that originally scanlated Kaguya (Jaimini's Box) removed their chapters from Mangadex and only hosted them on their own website. However, their website did not have the earlier chapters, meaning the series was incomplete there. Meanwhile, the other releases posted on Mangadex at the time were of a much lower quality than the Jaimini's Box versions.
Therefore, we consolidated Kaguya-sama and its spinoffs under this website and made a useful reader, as well as some innovations like full-text search. We like the Kaguya-sama manga a lot and want more people to discover and enjoy Kaguya-sama in the best way possible.
There is an official translation by Viz. Why host unofficial translations?
First, the Viz manga volumes have yet to catch up to the weekly release. There is also no simultaneous release for Kaguya on MangaPlus.
Second, by making the site as perfect as possible we direct a lot of traffic away from other "read Kaguya" websites that earn money with shady ads by taking fan releases and hosting them with no regard for quality or the fans - their only aim is views and ad revenue.
Third, despite providing all the chapters for free, we still want to promote the official sources so readers can support the author and official translators. We believe that both official and non-official releases can coexist - by keeping readers actively interested with regular weekly fan translations, we think more readers will buy official volumes and help support the series.
