This is our release release for this year, but hopefully not the end of the show.
We're closing the year with chapter six of Papaya Gang http://hotcakes.ucoz.com/forum/4-137-1#517 (no smut in this one, so it's SFW)
And Nekomichi http://hotcakes.ucoz.com/forum/4-160-1#667 (Dad thinks he's getting a scarf)
As I said in my previous post, things aren't looking good for our group.
We have no translators and everyone else is busy.
And now the site's not working.
I'll continue with the joints and Russian translations for as long as I can, but as for the rest of our projects, the prospects are bleak at this point.
There are also two Ooshima oneshots I will release when I find the time.
If someone's willing to help, please PM me here on this site on mangaupdates, where my usename is NightSwan.
My Gmail is email@example.com.
We have many lovely projects just waiting to be translated~
If we can't find help, my only option would be to disband the group and I really don't want that to happen.
I hope our staff and readers will have a wonderful new year and a great celebration with their friends, family and loved ones.
One a side note, I read somewhere that scanlations are seen as low quality and inferior to anime fansubs.
Some people claim that scanlators are idiots who know no English and don't evolve with time.
I would like to respond to these accusations and say that I strongly disagree.
As a manga reader and later scanlator, I can say that it is not true.
Sure, there will always be the speed groups and randoms who just throw everything together without as little as checking their work.
We at HotCakes strive to give fans high quality scanlations, as many other groups.
Have a happy new year~!
Until next time,
As always, comments are appreciated. xD
