TAIHEN News!! 「タイヘンニュース!!」Ep 07 “Y U NO TRANSLATOR?!”

Taihen News

Here we are again on one of our long running ranting posts form one of the busiest admin of the team, me! These past few days we have been receiving questions like:

1. Why are you asking for donations?

2. Why the slow releases?

3. Is the project [manga title here] dropped?

4. Can we take away your projects for ourselves and leave you losers out in the cold?

5. Can’t you losers find a free translator?

There is only one short answer to all these questions.


Is that clear enough for you? Don’t make us put bogus pages and deliberately change the dialogues just to inform all of you that we’re out of translators and we’re in dire need of them on our releases so that you guys will be able to read our message more clearly.

The problem is that many of you think that translators are a dime a dozen and that they would come rushing in once we post that we’re in need of them. That sort of thing doesn’t work in the real world where we live in, silly! We did post notices that we need translators on our releases and most of them go unanswered and some manga reader sites blatantly remove those along with the credits pages which is not very nice!


Unknown to many of you out there, the Translator is like the beating heart at the center of a scanlation group, and the health of a scanlation group depends on the strength and capabilities of their translator/s, if a scanlation group losses their translators, the group simply dies. Then, why’re we still alive you might ask? For one, we still have a partly functioning translator (me!) and our benefactor is paying another translator, so we’re running with one and a half translator in our heart station and we’re barely making it as we are right now. If you guys know any volunteer translators out there please tell them, ” WE NEED TRANSLATORS!!

I hope that answers many of your burning questions, and if we receive another preachy comment from some upstart LEECHER who wants to remain anonymous because he’s too scared to be identified, we’ll deliberately sabotage a page or two in our releases posting that we need translators.

    You’re so f****** easy to make mad it isn’t even funny to me anymore. Take a f****** chill pill, you’re the one who made a mountain out of a mole hill.

    I only made the original comment in the first place because I had assumed that you were always paying for translations.

      Dude, do you seriously think that all we do is scanlate all day? If you were in my disposition having to deal with stress from work, family, extra work in scanlating and then receive preachy comments from people like you, you’ll definitely blow a fuse. Comments like yours is NOT FUNNY at all, how would you like it if I preach to you of how much you slack off unknowing that you have a lot going on and pressure you to do more, huh?! How would you like that?! Don’t spout SHIT about things you have little to no knowledge about, you’re not the boss of me, you’re not even paying our group to scanlate for you! And then you go about preaching to us that we’re asking for a little help because we’re paying for a translation? HOW DARE YOU?! And for your information, It’s not only you who send us preachy BULLSHIT, we just delete them and try to ignore them, but there are times that you just have to let out steam and just give them a piece of your mind. So please as a favor for us who are already doing you a favor, just don’t! Instead of preaching, think of a way to help, if you want to speed things up.

      Seen from afar, even a mountain might look like a mole hill. anonleecher should consider helping instead of preaching, then and only then might he earn his right to whine.
      Otherwise he should just shut his pie hole.
