TAIHEN News!! 「タイヘンニュース！！」Ep 04 “Report ‘n’ Stuff”
This Taihen News Report was supposed to be a good long rant about how irritating for us to see comments from disgruntled readers how we seem to be too lazy to make frequent releases, but then again, who wants to read long rants?
Anyway, on to my report. As you may have noticed that we made consecutive releases for ‘Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio”‘ although it gained quite a following, but it’s not so much. I believe it’s probably due to the short length of the manga. On the other hand, ‘OkaZu Bekarasu!! Junketsu Tokku!’ gained more follows, probably due to the kemonomimi girls in the series. Either way, we are thankful to you guys who support our works. Though it’s only fitting for us to respond by chucking out more frequent releases, but the glaring problem that won’t go away is that we don’t have PERMANENT and DEDICATED staff. We get a few applications every now and then, but once one of our admins get to contact them, the conversation only goes on for a while then suddenly we never hear from the new applicant again. We strongly suggest that new applicants introduce themselves in our IRC channel, or the forums, but for some reason very few people find their way there recently, and because of that I restored the contact link in the menu bar so that you guys can notify us about anything at all. I suggest you leave a feedback, because it’s more likely to be read by the admins who maintain the site.
As for the projects, as I have announced on the last Maid Cafe “Curio” credits page and the release post, the next chapter release will be delayed because I have some RL stuff to deal with and I needed a break. But after only two days I’m back to working on Maid Cafe “Curio” chapter 4 and Maou chapter 8, you will also be treated to a follow up release of “Okazu Bekarasu!! Junketsu Tokku!” chapter 2. Also, we are planning on making a new release for “Imouto LoveRu” chapter 3. For those who have forgotten about it, Imouto LoveRu is just one of those interesting projects that I found, but unfortunately raws were scarce. I only managed to save up to 2 chapters back then and only managed to scrape two more chapters later. Since it was still on going a year ago, I decided to wait for more chapters to surface, but alas, only four chapters came out and the last thing I knew was that I had heard that the series had already ended. We’ll try to produce the last two chapters we have, but more releases is uncertain because there are no more raws. On the other hand, we are also planning on restarting the “Maji-Bura” project, it’s been more than two years already!! DAYUM!!! Anyway, we need to do something about that. A Magikano release is also imminent, as for Seifuku, we are still waiting for the proofed chapter 3 from our proofer, Caboov. Also, we might release a new SnO PICO chapter, all thanks to Buttons.
As for the long time pending projects, please do not think that we have abandoned them. We actually like reading them, but the problems is, we are seriously understaffed. We have few cleaners, most of our typesetters are either away, or too busy with RL stuff (ie gaming), we have no resident translator, and the status of our proofers is unknown. If you guys would like to help us in a particular project, we are open.
So, in order for us to facilitate you guys and get our very limited work force to concentrate on a project you want to have a new release, we are conducting another poll! We will prioritize our projects releases for the following week based on the poll results. The more votes a project gets the more likely it’ll be the next release, so what are you waiting for? VOTE NOW!!!
The poll will only be valid for a week.
