Derek has disappeared without warning again, in case it wasn't obvious. The last message of mine that he's seen was at the beginning of November.
If he shows up again, he'll be alone. I'm not going to deal with this nonsense anymore.
I apologize to anyone who liked our series as much as I do, and who have been patiently waiting for us to start back up. I'm going to enjoy reading our series on my own in Japanese but I'm not going to give Let It Go any more work that wasn't originally their burden and I have no intention of cutting into my already busy schedule for that anyway. The one exception to this is Yumekuri, which appears to be winding down from what I've seen in the raws and wouldn't be too hard to handle once other staff is freed up at LIG.
I'm not done with scanlation entirely; I'll just be working primarily with Let It Go, Psylocke, and others for their series.
More than anything, I simply hope that at least some of the series we've touched are worth picking up by American publishers. They're worth bringing to a paying audience in my opinion.
Enjoy the rest of the manga online and buy whatever you feel is worth your money/subscribe to services that make the translation industry worth investing into. And, uh, happy new year.
