TAIHEN News!! Ep 02 “Life at Present”

September 5, 2013 at 2:56 pm 11 comments

Hello folks and welcome to another “Ara taihen!” news. I’ve been meaning to write a news for you guys about the current situation of our group for quite a while now, but the opportunity always escapes me. So even though it’s so late in my location at the moment I decided to write something before I totally lose the will or any inspiration to write anything, so here goes…

First off, the Fuku Neko project was originally a joint project that was decided upon a few years back (it’s been YEARS!!) the production progress was just so slow that even I gets frustrated. During the Fuku Neko project’s infancy stage, our resident CN translator, Reinnya worked tirelessly to translate all 17 chapters (including the filler chapters) before she retired. The original plan was that our group (the AFS) will do the translation and proofing (and some cleaning job) and the other group will do the rest. The weekly plan never fell through and the project updates were sporadic. In my belief we already did all our part, but somewhere in between people just seem to be not so interested in working on it until less and less folks get involved in working on it. It’s just a shame to see it in the condition it was a few months back, so I thought we’d adopt the project and try to carry on with it (without consulting people, yep that’s the way to do it!)

To tell you the truth many of the staff are busy with school, RL stuff, jobs and games, so most of the projects don’t progress very well lately. But we’re hoping that once all the RL stuff and others that get in the way of us chucking out more releases will be resolved, or taken care of soon. Also, a long inactive staff will be returning to us this month, so we may get some stuff done on long pending projects such as Maji Bura, Imouto Loveru, Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, Haru to Natsu and others. I’m also looking forward to some stuff you I’m hoping that things will get a bit lively here next month. And also, the AFS original manga is now in production! Aside from our regular releases we’ll be putting up an original manga dedicated to our very own staff and our hijacked bot Meido! For those who are not in the know, Meido is a bot on our IRC channel, she was originally created by Serghar of Sakugara Scans, one of our sub admins (Caboov) managed to get Meido in our channel to liven up the channel. But recently Meido has been missing, I was informed that she is currently on vacation. And since our cookie provider has been gone for a while now, things aren’t as lively in the channel as it used to, so to keep the Meido spirit alive, we’ll be making Meido one of the main character in our group manga. Currently, there is no structure for the manga story, but I’m hoping to make it into something entertaining to read (at least).

On other stuff, I’d like to make a report that translation works for the following titles are underway!

  1. Gou-dere Nagihara Sora chapter 14.5 – 5% progress
  2. Imouto Loveru chapter 03 – 10% progress
  3. Urasai chapter 04 – 100% progress (translation done by Lessee)
  4. Magikano chapter 31 – 1% progress

Other projects that were reported to be in production are:

  1. Dead Soul Revolver chapter 11 – in the works
  2. Maou na Ore to Fushihime no Yubiwa chapter 04 – in the works
  3. Tokkou Maid Thunder chapter 05 – typesetting phase (no actual progress update)
  4. Okasu Bekarazu – Junketsu Tokku chapter 01 – in the works (no actual progress update) *al245 said “the cleaned is done. Also, I’m still waiting for redraw and proof script.

Other projects are still on cue, hopefully we’ll be able to do something about them.

I’d also like to announce that we’ll be dropping the “Boku to Kanojo no XXX” a.k.a. “My Barbaric Girl Friend” project. Not many staff seem to be interested in working on it and another group has released “ALL” the remaining chapters of it, so no point for us to keep at it. It’s been a long run, I started in this little hobby because of it, but things just has to have an end. Those who are interested to read the rest of it you guys can go see it in the nearest profiteering manga reader site near you! Or on the web.

Well, that’s it for my Taihen news post for now. I’m actually not too sure of the other stuff I put in here because I’m actually half a sleep and my consciousness fades in and out as I type this very report. If you guys have any question of want to know something, just leave us a message, you can be sure we’ll read it.

      Majority of releases for MBG vol. 5 & 6 was by the now defunct MFM group (MangaFox Members) unfortunately, the group never had any official site to post their releases and all works were solely uploaded to Mangafox. I was one of the original MFM staff and I still have the original works of MFM. I planned to release them under the AFS group, but reworking the releases was too much work. If there would be volunteers willing to help refurbish them, it may he possible to post them all up here.

    Weird… Why is Chocolat Cafe Maid Curio not mentioned in this type of update? Five months ago, it was said that 99% complete and still no progress?

      I remember that the project was supposed to be finalized by the AFS Italian subsidiary. The last report I received is that it was already completed typesetting and everything all that was needed was the final credits page. We have agreed to the proposed credits page, but the final work was never submitted for release. So… Till now I’m still waiting for the other group to submit the final work for release.

    So there is no progress on “Seifuku!”?

    Well I hope at least it won’t get dropped.
