Yo~ yes, this is paramitan, alive and still kicking. Missed me?
3 months. 3 months without even checking a scanlated manga page. 3 months without logging in to IRC (and it seems that my account is now suspended). 3 months worth of academic overload. I wondered how I survived all that time...
Yes, what took me out of the scene was (mainly) studies. I'm having a great deal of difficulty (up to now) in catching up to most of my subjects. I even entertained the thought of changing schools, one thing that'll be really hard for me. My recent lack of online contact further lengthened when my memory card (which contained almost all scripts I was working on that time) and my PC crashed. May I have you know that my PC's hard drive shut down, and I only cried for 4 hours (mainly because it contained all of my backups, past files, digital memories and raw manga). I was supposed to release an anniversary gift (which I was supposed to keep a secret up till now) and I have done typesetting half of it when it all happened. Such a disappointment, I might say...
Now, time for me to say my apologies. First, to the once members of the group. Sorry for not contacting you guys for so long. I can laugh at the fact that you guys have tagged me dead, for I am at fault with that. I left without a warning and without someone else to lead, which lead to the shutdown (which learnt of recently). Second, to all the groups I was once in as a translator. I'll try to pick some back up if I would be able to get the raws. Third, to all of you who have waited for a release.
Since I'm still struggling to buy a new PC, here's my plan for the group for now. Because I'm currently the only member of the group once more (with everyone else gone to different groups, and chihirofuru preparing for graduation), I can only handle a few projects at a time. One of which is one of my personal favorites: RealPG. Thank you jag/Psylocke Scans for releasing it, but I would like to take this series back. I LOVE this series, and I missed it so much that I was literally jumping when I saw the recent developments. So, yeah, you'd see the release on the bottom of this post, and I'd apologize for the half-assed color redraw. NEEDING A REDRAWER!!!
After I've caught up with RealPG, I'll be likely to pick Danshi and ReBURST back up. Since both series have ended their run in Japan, I'll try to get a more organized release flow for the series.
How about the others? Let's see...
Kurogane - now on S2Scans
Haikyuu!! - now on Casanova Scans
Evergreen - now on Casanova Scans
Golden Time - Village Idiot Scans is doing it on their own now...
Guilty Crown - could be back depending whether we could still get an RP
Kokoro Connect - could be back if I get another translator on board
Happy Project - no plan on finishing it anymore (5 chapters to the end, and it bores me to death)
Am I doing new projects? Just one or two monthly series would do. I cannot do a weekly series because I don't have much time (unless someone can help clean/redraw...) I already have one series in my list and would likely to have the second one filled in (after reading a chapter of it).
Since the site is down, I hate going back to freewebs, and I can't access the IRC channel, I'm re-establishing ways for you to communicate with the group. So the LiveJournal will be temporarily the group site again, and the new channel for the group is now #uprodscans on IRCHighway (I am para| there). Facebook page and Twitter account will stay the same (I am still managing it) and the email for the group is still the Gmail account (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you'd like to help me (in case of my former staff, again), I'll be glad to entertain your offer.
And now, RealPG Stage XI...
