On Hiatus

Update (see below)

Well, it is not easy to write something after some time went by and things look forgotten. Although, we wanted to do this a while ago, I pushed it back day by day, week by week… At first when we had things figured out once again and were on a fine course again, unfortunately our raw providers broke away and we just didn’t manage to handle that, we simply couldn’t find anyone filling the spot or any raw services on the net. That’s when, even though we had a team ready to go, we weren’t able to continue, weeks and month passed, time flew by… All of us were trying to find a solution, looking for supporters and searching the net, though without any real success. In the end we got caught up with other things in life and without really noticing it almost exactly a year passed now till our last release…

Anyway, now we are here, and we certainly are on a hiatus, I call it like that since we still have a team* in the background which could get into motion…, and that might even happen someday (of course just after we solve the raw issue…). *except Translators as it seems…

Nevertheless we’d like to thank our supporters and fans, also the people who noticed things and wanted to join us, which we had to decline due to our state (and since no raw-provider were among them), but big thanks for the support and your feelings and who knows in case we start to kick-ass once again, you certainly are welcome…

So what I’m trying to say is that we were kinda like on a hiatus and still are, and thus decided to finally make the call and officially post it.

Personally let me thank for the awesome ride so far, to every member and fan, and I’m looking forward to see what the future might bring. Its just cool how our core team is still in contact, even when it got a bit rare sometimes, but we still are connected, which makes me really feel great about us and what we accomplished amongst other things.

See ya guys maybe on the chat, till then…

PS: We still want to finish at least Those who chase the Ageha, anyone able to provide us the Raws is welcome to send us a note at info@standalonescans.com, thx. We’ve received the raws by now, thanks for all the people contacting us. Over the past months we unfortunately didn’t manage to get any of our “old” Translators back to work of find anyone new willing to finish Ageha. It is just to sad… but we are not giving up…

    How about translating Those Who Hunt Elves?

  1. Thanks for the words Sau :-)

    @YuriM, we rather pick a anything new by Yagami Yu (like Kankyou Hogotai Mottai 9), besides the anime is in English available…

    Too bad. Anime TWHE is really different to manga. And manga TWHE looks like the source of all later Yu’s works.
    Although, Kankyou Hogotai Mottai 9 looks interesting too. I’m looking forward to…:)

    And, to be noted, there are already full raws of all 23 volumes of TWHE:)

  2. Hahaha, yea, usually the manga are better than the anime versions.

    :L, and I came looking for K.O Sen lol

  4. Thanks for the note HansMaulwurf, we received a couple of days ago the raws already by the actual raw provider (its probably spreading trough web now).

    Anyway, currently we try to reactivate one of our translators form the old days respectively look for someone new… Hope it works out soon, though its summer time thus vacation time :)
