We Aren't Dead


No, we aren't dead. We've had a million staff quit without saying anything though. We also haven't heard from the typesetter/cleaner who was supposed to have our releases ready almost a week ago. Prunus Girl should be ready soon, since it's only me and Koizumi that work on that, so no one can fuck us over on it. If you're frustrated by the delays recently, feel free to volunteer to help us out, that's the only way things are going to speed up (well, they will speed up anyway, simply because I'm out of classes, but translation scripts without cleaners and typesetters won't really get things moving terribly faster).

Note from Koizumi:
If you want to be a cleaner for us, please do not send us an example using a crumpled up page that is taped together. If you do so, you'll be lucky if I let you get away without me insulting you or pointing out your bullshit publicly (pic related). Don't worry I won't mention your name, but you know who you are. Also please be good, I really can't be there to hold your hand through the whole process. Being able to redraw would be appreciated so that everything isn't on my shoulders as well.

  1. What is the best way to contact you guys about possibly helping out? Because I would love to do anything! Cleaner/Re-drawer/~translator (I am learning)/ETC...

  5. Looks like a lot of university classes have now ended in the USA, so people often quit now as they are going off to their summer jobs or to their summer vacation break before a summer school course.

  11. this is all because 41% of your readers like to put stuff in their belly buttons.

    your staff just couldn't handle that fact.

  12. Me and Koiz were both at Fanime all weekend. We were hoping to get Prunus Girl done before we left, but honestly there really wasn't any way to make it happen. Cleans on it are done (I believe), but I'm bouncing from house to house the next two days before I settle in with Gief for the next month, so I would guess I won't get to sit down and work on the script until Weds or Thurs.

  13. Do you guys have any idea on what happened to Needless, or is that one of the translators that went MIA?

    ReplyDelete
  14. I was away for personal reasons, so I guess stuff didn't get done. I'm back now so things should begin to move along. Sorry :<

  15. >Do you guys have any idea on what happened to Needless, or is that one of the translators that went MIA?

    Are you joking, or what? Read the wall of text right above your post. Then read the post from Caan. Then settle down, since I don't mind people asking questions, but I do mind answering ones that have already been answered. NEEDLESS will be coming soon, both the new chapter and the next one from the gap.

    Well sorry about that, but I was under the impression that NEEDLESS was an outsourced project that was just being distributed on your page. I had read the wall and I understood your situation, but nothing had been said about NEEDLES. As for the post by Caan, that was after mine. It was an innocent question that had not been answered.

    That aside, I do thank you for answering.

  17. When is the next chapter of suzunonne (i don't remember the name very well) ready?

    ReplyDelete
  18. That project's a joint with DEB, and the hold up is entirely on their end. I poke them from time to time, but I honestly have no idea what the delay's all about.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Probably getting tired of answering but any updates on Past Future?

    ReplyDelete
  20. >Past Future

    Runs in the magazine Waai, which only comes out quarterly. We'll have scans within a week or so and get our side of the joint done as soon as we can.

  24. I applaud the job you guys do and I appreciate being able to read these wonderful works without learning japanese. I hope things go well and you get some good volunteers soon. (and I hope the fanboys don't bugg you you with their incessant whining)
    -D

  25. I'm patiently waiting for the next chapter of "Mei no Naisho". Hopefully, you guys will go back scanlating again.

  28. Who's the trap (assumed) mascot of WOW! scans? The one on the banner and the donate tab.

  29. >Who's the trap (assumed) mascot of WOW! scans? The one on the banner and the donate tab.

    I don't know how many times we have to explain that our mascot is not a trap. It's Morishima Haruka from the anime Amagami SS (which is based off of the Amagami visual novel.) She is our mascot forever and it will never change to a trap. The day our mascot changes is the day WOW!scans ceases to exist.

  30. Can you guys change that pic of that dirty manga page scan to something different, everytime i come to this page to check for updates im hit with a a pic of a dirty manga scan

    ReplyDelete
  31. lol, I think that the mascot will need to have pointers saying "SHE's A GIRL", or people will ask forever... xD

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm still going to pretend that the mascot is a trap.

  33. >Can you guys change that pic of that dirty manga page scan to something different

    Nope, deal with it.

    >I'm still going to pretend that the mascot is a trap.

    You stop that right now.

  34. Hi great fan of the site I check the site daily, I was wondering any updating posting schedule for prunus or any series, just wondering basically will there be a posting this week

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm really hoping for some releases ASAP, still waiting on my cleaner/typesetter who is 2+ weeks late on 4 chapters, PG and possibly a Mei chapter I'll translate later this week. My life is kind of hectic at the moment, hence the delay on any of my personal projects.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Just wondering which Releases are coming, when the post is made :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Take as much time as you need. Quality over quantity. Don't get too stressed over all the demands that anonymous people put on you.
