Was pretty surprised today. I got back from work this week to find over 30 emails from readers who were asking when RZK's hiatus would be over. Many of them stating they don't like the rather slow release rate of the series that were switched to other groups. I can certainly agree that yeah, they the releases of our series being continued/done by other groups is slower than most would like, especially myself considering I'm both a reader and a scanlator, but it's going to be some time until RZK comes back. Not due to the lack of wanting to, but as I said in my previous post, my real life has taken precedence over scanlating, and with a job where I'm literally out of my home every weekday and have access to the internet for less than an hour a day during those days, it's just not in the cards.
I will say however, that whenever RZK does come back, we will be taking back our projects that have not been completely scanlated. This includes Tonari no Kashiwagi-san, Ore to Ichino, Kitsune no Akuma to Kuroi Madousho, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo, and Omae wo Otaku. We'll also be continuing all the other series we were working on at the time of hiatus, again, if the scanlation has not been completed. And we will be continuing the RZK philosophy of picking up manga in scanlation hell.
I've already got more than enough people willing to do work (including translating), whenever we do come back so staff will not be an issue. Though whenever that time does come, I'll be a translator myself, so if they happen to be busy, well, that's what I'll be there for.
Anyway, I am sorry that this hiatus has come, as it's not only impacted RZK, but I was unable to complete Hanamaru Kindergarten for CXC Scans, and I managed to get myself the "shortest tenure award" in Red Hawk thanks to having to leave there. The thought of having manga that I both love working on and reading not being done at all anymore, or being released slowly (usually with bad quality at that...), is not a very fun thing to see.
