TZA’s Second Anniversary Special End

February 8th, 2013 | Posted by TZA in TZA - (3 Comments)

This wraps up our special anniversary release~ We hope you guys enjoyed our little treat!

We have come this far… thanks for your support =3 There are many other things we want to tell you guys:

Unfortunately, the past year also had its downsides. There had been extremely impatient, inconsiderate, and ungrateful leechers out there, and that has gotten on our nerves =/

We want to use this opportunity to rant:

  • Reporting Errors” and “Giving Positive Criticism” are different from “Complaining” and “Whining“.
    We appreciate the former (for us to take action on problems or to improve ourselves) but get discouraged to continue scanlating with the latter. If you want us to release sooner, then don’t contribute to the delay by bothering us with your whining.
    Feel free to remind us if we haven’t released for a while (“There hasn’t been an Izayakaku chapter for 4 months. How are you guys?”) but don’t complain about it (“Where’s my Izayakaku chapter? You guys are so slow!”)
  • Demands” are different from “Requests“.
    What’s so difficult in asking nicely? You are not our customer/boss. Though we do try to make things convenient for you, you would prefer us to  prioritize scanlating your favorite manga than on spoiling you with other things, right? That’s why other concerns are not addressed that soon.
  • Like you, we are imperfect.
    Don’t expect our releases to be flawless. We will leave releases as they are if errors are too minor (or won’t have much impact on the story). If you want high quality images, then buy the official manga; no scanlation can beat those.
  • We are human, and we have lives and other priorities.
    Don’t expect us to dedicate our time solely for scanlations; it’s not our job and nobody’s paying us for this. Scanlation takes time; don’t expect us to be done in an instant. Try it yourself if you don’t believe us.
  • The most effective way of having the releases done faster is if you help us with the scanlation process (through scanning, translating, editing, etc.)
    We are open to collaboration partners (rescanlators that help us with the editing) and joint partners too. Just email us for further discussion.
    If you don’t have the skills for it, then try to learn (or to avail the programs you need. I’ve heard that you can get Adobe Photoshop CS2 for free!).
  • If you don’t have free time to help us with scanlations, then interact with us; leave us comments about your love for the manga (say how much you like it, tell us your favorite characters, discuss recent chapters, etc.).
    Seeing we’re not that alone in the fandom is pretty motivating; reminds us why we’re scanlating in the first place, instead of getting annoyed with extremely impatient people.
    There’s no way for you not to have time to leave a comment if you have time to actually read the chapter.

I hope we’ve come to an understanding.

Alright, enough rant. Back to anniversary talk~
