We're not dead yet!

Back after about a week and a half break from my computer as a whole. Quite the refreshing break from scanlation. Anyway...

I find it quite funny Zero and others believe that stealing projects from Renzokusei is somehow going to piss me off or upset me in anyway. RZK was created to continue previously dropped projects because other groups wouldn't or couldn't continue them for whatever reason. So when another group actually does pick it up, it actually makes me happy someone else is continuing it. No matter how bad or good our releases are, I'm never really completely satisfied with the result, so when I know a group like Simple, Japanzai, or even VIS (as much as their admin is an ass) picks up a project, I know they'll do a good job on it. So, more power to ya!

Series status updates
Tonari no Kashiwagi-san: Switched to SimpleScans.
Kitsune no Akuma to Kuroi Madousho: Switched to SimpleScans.
Oda Nobuna no Yabou: Switched to Japanzai & Village Idiot Scans.
Haruwaka: Switched to Japanzai.
Hagure Yuusha no Kichiku Bigaku: This is going to be continued regularly. Our translator will be continuing it, and the scans we use for it are provided by the magazine itself online. Chapter 2 will be out Tuesday.
Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo: Chapter 3 will be translated by Sjiveru still, and that will be released at some point. Unknown whether fotc will be translating ch4 or later.
Oniichan dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne: Our translator for this basically disappeared well over a month ago, so chapter 2's status is basically up in the air.
Sexual Hunter Riot: Chapter 1 has been completed. However it waits a look over from the translator roan-kun, and approval for release.
Perowan! - Hayashinasai! Goshujinsama: The joint status on this is unknown. We have HQ scans of the chapters up to 15.5, and they have a resized (smaller) version of it for translating, but should they wish to break the joint, I'll be sending them the scans in their original form so they can continue it.
Soukai no Eve: Chapter 10.5 will either be released by either us, or Death Toll. Likely Death Toll, but that awaits approval from PROzess. If he says no, we'll release it at some point. He's stopped translating the project, so anything past that is unknown.
Who Killed Cock Robin: Chapter 5 was completed a couple weeks back, and awaits my QC. Going to talk to Kiss Scans about the release, but if they don't want their work considered a joint, we'll redo it and release it ourselves. Anything past chapter 5 is also unknown like SnE, as PROzess has stopped translating that too.
Ore to Ichino no Game Doukoukai Katsudou Nisshi: No longer being translated by Castellan as far as I know. Status after chapter 1 is unknown, both translation and raw scan wise.
Sora no Manimani: No longer being translated by Katsudon. Chapter 23 still lacks it's cleans, which I'll end up doing myself most likely to release. Anything after that is completely unknown right now.
Seven Sisters: Chapter 4 was translated a bit back, and we can release this with MQ scans done by Sasuke from jcafe, but we had asked about HQ scans for it, but not sure if we'll be getting them.
Omae wo Otaku ni shiteyaru kara, Ore wo Riaju ni shite kure!: Our continuation on this hinges entirely on obtaining HQ scans for it.
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Several chapters of this are both translated and cleaned, so releases of this are going to come, but unknown whether it will be completed.
Choi Hime: Chapter 3 has been translated, but our continuation of it was stalled waiting for HQ scans of it, but it's likely we won't be getting those, so we'll probably end up releasing this with the original very LQ scans we have.
Amagoi: This was slightly stalled due to the unavailable volume 4 scans, which we will still likely not be getting, but we'll end up continuing and finishing volume 3 regardless. After that, I can just hope that vol4 magically finds its way scanned publicly.
Tokarev no Ayaui Shiro: This has likely switched to a SimpleScans project. Was translated by abcd9146 a while back, and I do have the chapter 3 scans, so I can clean/TS it, but really don't know its status.
Seirei Tsukai no Kenbu: Have no clue about this. paramitan apparently went MIA shortly before the public scans were posted, and without HQ scans don't know if we'd work on it anyway.
Puchi Houndi & Harvest December: Work on these never really got very far, so nothing to say about them.

  2. Hello, I was wondering if you take requests to scanalate a good manga that has not been updated for a year?

  3. Except that VI-scans didn't steal anything from you, you illegally hacked into their data and deleted it. Stupid douche.

    1. Contrary to what the general public believes, not all hacking is illegal.

  4. Did it occur to you that your workers left you, joined other groups, and brought their projects with you? No doubt, some people were probably try to steal your projects to piss you off for what you did, but it looks like your workers just off and ran away with your projects.

    1. None of the staff that was exclusive to my group left and brought a project to another group. Kitsune no Akuma was schthaxe's project here, and he was a member of Simple well before I became a member there. I'm unsure of why Kashiwagi went to Simple, but if there's any group I'd want to do it, it'd be them. Oda Nobuna was technically never ours given that we never released a chapter of it. Haruwaka was sniped by Japanzai because of Ulquiorra, who is just as bad as Zero is.

    2. They left, and probably wanted to work on the projects of yours they liked. Simple, really.

  5. Oh you, please don't call me as bad as Zero:) i'm 10x worse mate.

  10. Are you sure Simple Scans is doing Tonari no Kashiwagi-san? I don't see it anywhere on their site nor information relating to it. =(

    1. Yeah, Simple asked Sjiveru if he was interested in translating it for them, and after talking with me I told him I had no problem with it, since it's Simple. He just got the raws yesterday, so he's translating it now. Given Simple's speed, the release for it could be in the next few days, or it could be weeks.

  11. /me can't stop laughing

    It's okay, I'm not laughing at you, but with you.

    There's nothing called stealing, after all we are stealing our titles from the mangakas.

    I bet PROzess is a dick too, right? Please post the convo with him. I read some bits and I couldn't stop laughing at the stuff you said to PRO, lol.

    I find it great that you are capable of wanting to do what you did from the start (if you ever did it) do titles that are dropped by others. Cool, there's a lot of titles that are left and could be picked up easily...if you got the staff xDDDD

    PS: Were you the typesetter of Love Junkies at Japanzai? If yes, then I understand what happened over there too, lol.

    1. While PROzess isn't the most likable person, I can't say I believe he's a dick. Not quite sure what you're talking about. I haven't talked to PROzess since the third, and our chat was rather brief.

      Yeah, I was the TSer for LJ. I have no idea what happened there, though.

  12. now that u are in redhawk dont try to bite takadanama or you will get totally isolated in scanlation scene

    1. If I wanted to do anything to any other group, I would. Since I still have access to Simple's and Japanzai's files. But I haven't, and I'm not going to. Since, even though both groups both kicked me and have taken projects, I loved my time there and have nothing against anyone in those groups.

      Delete
    2. liar!! lol i know that you dont have access on japanzai and simple and they change their ftp and remove your status as a staff how will you have access on it?? hmmn maybe u have an spy staff account on them.., tsk tsk really people like you are gay.,and "disgrace as a scanlator" you dont have any moral in most of your group you are kick.., it's just a matter of time before you get kick in the others

      Delete
    3. Because I was given the new information by people who are still in the groups. Believe it or not, aside from the vocal few on the site, most people still actually like me, and don't give a shit about what happened to VI. That includes the groups I am still a member of. I won't be getting kicked from them unless I really want to be.

      Delete
    4. Yeah, that's why you were kicked out of Simple-scans and Japanzai. Because they like you.

  13. Thanks For Continuing To Release Manga.
    You Should Pick Up Mayo Chiki That Was Just Dropped By Japanzai, Simhauu Wants To Continue The Series, But Needs A Translator, You Should Try To Do A Collab.

  15. as long as the release keeps coming, we all love you :P

  16. I told you that you are not allowed to use the translation of SnE 10,5 and Cock Robin 5.
    Any release of Renzokusei will be considered a steal and won't make it up on mangaupdates.
    SnE is in the hands of Death Toll now. They have permission from me to use c10.5.

    1. WOOT. Annoying translator (but still 'likeable' in a sense since he's a TLer *lol*) detected.
      So, why you don't allow him to use your translation? Just wonderin', y'know since there aren't other scanlations willing to do it AFAIK (Or maybe you WILL, I dunno).

    2. Get a pair of glasses and read my above post again.
      Stupidity has it's limits, you know....

  17. if derek isn't profiting from this, then i must say: fuck people like prozess. you are by no means obligated to translate, and all of us appreciate the work put into releases. that being said, you sure as fuck don't own any translations - you haven't been given permission by the mangaka, so please cut the shit. if it isn't about profits but the quality, then...well, never mind. i respect that.

  18. You're not dead yet! But you're FALLEN now!

    Join another scanlation group (VIScans) but doing work improperly and only active for recruiting people inside there. When iMangaScans people know your bad attitude and kicking you, you launch attack for your anger to VIScans by deleting all of their works and files. This is far worse than a group steals another group's work without permission. SHAME ON YOU !!!

    You have made some scanlation group include your ex-staff become your enemy by doing that.

  19. Hey derek! You're alive!!! lol
    Can you go to the staff irc? I have something to tell ya! You know where to get me!

  20. Hmm, seems like there is a little Scanlation War going on,
    very Funny.

  22. You misunderstand, VIS, Japanzai and Simple didn't "steal" projects. It's simply because ex-staff from here brought the projects they were working on to other groups.
    Don't bother working on Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo and Oniichan dakedo Ai Sae Areba Kankeinai yo ne as they have been brought over to VIS by your ex-members.

    As a sidenote, ZeroDC stepped down as he had planned a long time ago.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm sure you wont read this, but I might as well. It's one thing that they're taking up the manga that you so started up again. However they are not stealing projects from you, they would have not taken up the project in the first place if it were not worth the time and effort to do so. In that case, it's not really stealing.

    On the other hand, you have been making attempts to take members who are already crunched on time and energy working on existing projects to help you do your own. That in itself is stealing people from a group.

    While it's not a bad thing, and it really means less work for you to do, it's only bad for people to take up a project and half ass them to the point where the results are bad: the translating, the typesetting, the editing, etc.

    However the result is still this, while they have taken up projects from you, that in itself is good. What's bad for you is that you probably didn't get the work force you needed, and most of the people who were with Renzokusei may have left, (looking at the status updates, it's obvious that they have).

    The result is this, you've been inactive for 3 weeks now, projects will slow down significantly, you will significantly slow down projects where you will barely squeeze out maybe a chapter per month (maybe faster, maybe slower, too soon to tell), you're probably going to release in bulk, which many fans are not impressed by (we're already irritated by the 3 times it's happened), your team is going to slowly leave you because IRL is always more important than working for manga (and even harder to keep up for a leader that might backstab them all). You'll go on "break" for a 6 month period, in which baka-updates will mark you as an inactive group, and then you'll abandon these projects by shutting down this group, making all that you wanted: "to bring manga projects back from the dead", rot back into hell. For that, you have failed us all

  26. And in the end, the one series I cared about, Sora no Manimani, has no future...

    I doubt anybody's ever gonna pick it up and finish it, nobody likes mellow slice of life stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Will there be any more Sora no Manimani scans? Got all the raws if needed.
