(I’m double posting in case not everyone will get to see the post I made in the new website when it closes down.)
Unfortunately, I have not-so-good news. I’ve been thinking about it lately (for the past year actually), and I’ve decided to close down Mango and quit scanlating as a whole. I really can’t balance scanlating and RL. There’s just too much on my plate right now that I’ve even quit my extracurricular activities at my university to focus on my studies. My classes are killing me, seriously: sleep deprived, stressed, passing on meals; I’ll definitely die lol XD
I really don’t want to close down Mango, but I realized that doing this became more of a hassle than something I thought I enjoyed.
I know… We finally have this website and all then I’ll suddenly shut it down. I wish I could’ve decided on this a lot sooner, but I kept thinking I can handle this perfectly fine (yes, I was probably out of my mind when I said that).
Before we officially close down though, I’ll still be releasing:
- Akumu no Elevator (the rest of the chaps)
- Pika Ichi v03 c011 (QC status)
- Undertaker Riddle v07 c037 (finished, just waiting for the other projects’ status)
- Trance Knights v01 c003-004
- Kamakura Deco & Kofu Life v01 c003-004
- My Hero v01 (this will probably take a while, but we’ll still get it out since we already have the complete script of v01) (we’re not sure if we’ll also release v02, still waiting on the reply of the translator)
Regarding Kimi ni Todoke and Trance Knights, I’m passing it to Japanzai if they still want to do it. One of their cleaners, Zac, who also cleans for us, is interested in picking them up.
I’ll reopen the previous forum so you can get our old releases there. Please bookmark this wordpress site again since I’ll be releasing the last releases of Mango here.
In a couple of days or so, the new website won’t be available anymore so please redirect yourself here from now on for the last releases of Mango.
For the latest donor, I will be giving you a refund for your latest donation since we will be closing down soon. For the previous donors, no worries, your donations was used for the funding of the Kimi ni Todoke raws (c069).
