Akaya Akashiya Ayakashi no Has Been Dropped!

With the announcement on BSxMG, since this baby’s licensed too, I suppose you also saw this coming ^^;

This is also a really late announcement but I’d like to officially inform everyone that this has been dropped.  Sorry if we hadn’t been able to release that frequently, but we really tried our best.

Anyway, now that Yen Press is now releasing it in English, rejoice! It appears that there are already 4 volumnes out, so just a little more patience and they’ll catch up until the last volume too. Please support the authors by purchasing either the English version or the Japanese set.

Thanks for the love and support~

This is a really late announcement, but I suppose you guys are no longer surprised about this since TZA can’t work on licensed titles. So as the title says, this project’s been dropped.

Sorry that we couldn’t release as soon as we hoped to. It’s regrettable to see those semi-completed unreleased chapters but… we’re doing this for the series and the fantastic author.

Please continue supporting the manga, which is now in 10 volumes! w00t! The anime‘s so fantastic too. Please continue the love and support for NAOE-sensei’s masterpiece! =)

Shiro Ari’s Return in 2015!

March 28th, 2015 | Posted by TZA in Releases | TZA - (7 Comments)

20150328_ShiroAri13Yes, the wait is over and chapter 13 is finally out! Get it from the project page~

We see that many have become worried that we have dropped this series because there hasn’t been a release for more than a year. But we would like to assure you that we have no plans in dropping this project. =)
2014 was just a very busy year for TZA ^^; Hopefully we make it up this year~

To those who would like to know about the project status:
Only translation checking and typesetting is left from chapter 14 to chapter 20.
Translation’s actually already until chapter 27 (Yes, Melody’s that amazing)

So what help do we urgently need in order to release the next chapter sooner?:
Translation Checker (knows mid-level or advanced Japanese; fluent in English)- Although we already have the translated scripts, Shiro Ari has SO MANY text that it would be necessary to go through it one more time, just to make sure that nothing was missed (less trouble during proofreading, typesetting, and quality checking too). Not all dialogues in Shiro Ari are that easy to translate either.


SerVamp in English This March!

March 4th, 2015 | Posted by TZA in Manga News | Releases | TZA - (0 Comments)

Kuro is freakin’ adorable….
Sorry for the delay ^^; But today we’ve managed to have the fifth chapter out =) You can get it here~

Find out what happens next (in English) once the first volume is release this coming March 17, 2015!!!

It had been so much fun working on this entertaining series. But today we’re saying goodbye to this project since Seven Seas has already given it love =D

We would like to thank everyone who had contributed to this project and to those who had given us support.

Please continue loving the series and in supporting the mangaka, either by buying the Japanese originals or by purchasing the English versions =)

TZA is not dead!

Although we haven’t been that active recently, we would like to assure you that we’re still into this.

We may not have replied to all your e-mails, comments, or shoutbox messages, but we do read every single one of them. We have considered your concerns and requests, just didn’t have time to respond to them, or do the updates you wished for.

We’re also even too busy to handle applications, although we really badly need additional help.
Recruitment’s temporarily closed (except for translators and redrawers) because I no longer know which project needs what anymore either (I’ve been away for that long, I can’t remember X_X It will take me time to check them)

Unfortunately, it’s unlikely for us to have any updates this month (because we’re still catching up), so probably the updates will only start around May or June 2014.

Thanks for the continuous support :) We’ll do our best!

See you all again on the next update xD

TZA’s Third Anniversary!

January 18th, 2014 | Posted by TZA in TZA - (2 Comments)


Unfortunately, we don’t have anything fancy to offer as we celebrate our third anniversary ^^;

We got busy, even the admins (one of them couldn’t even find time to check e-mails).

It doesn’t mean we’ve become totally inactive though. We’ll slowly catch up.  You’ll see ;)

For now we just need your continuous support and patience, as well as love for our projects :)

Thank you very much! :)

We have not forgotten our projects, okay?

We haven’t been that active lately because we’ve become busy with real life. We are gradually catching up on this but it appears that many readers are still worried about the status of their favorite TZA projects. ^^;

This post is to assure you that we haven’t abandoned ANY of the active projects.

Below are some updates/plans/status of what’s going on with each project:

Chapter 1-2 is already being typesetted. Our joint partner, seems to be having trouble because of huge loss of staff, so everyone will need to have more patience for the next chapter.
But if a kind soul will assist in translating this series (volunteer either to PLS or TZA), we might be able to catch up on this sooner.

Akaya Akashiya Ayakashi no
Chapters 9 and 10 will be out soon. The typesetter from Scarlet Night Scans will be able to finish Chapter 11 as soon as she gets more free time. So a little patience on that since the holidays are coming soon =)

Blue Spring X Machine Gun
The second part of the oneshot is undergoing QC. This should be completed as soon as the Quality Checkers find more time.
Upon completion of the oneshot, the first chapter should debut soon.

Only typesetting’s left. We aim to complete this within the year, if not this month.

Halloween Detective Oz Williams
Typesetter from Lively Scans is already working on chapter 8, so just a little patience and we can have the next chapter out soon.

Hinekure Shisho no Mikaiketsu Jiken Roku
It was brought to our concern that there hasn’t been a chapter released for this project for more than a year already.
We have no plans of making you guys wait any longer.
The cleaning marathon is almost complete (the omake left). Translation marathon should start next.

We are prioritizing the completed series that can be finished sooner so this one was unfortunately put on-hold.
But we’ll be starting the cleaning marathon soon. If there’ll be someone who can find time to translate the rest of the chapters, we might be able to have more chapters out sooner.

Kamakura Deco and Kofu Life
The cleaner got busy, so this was put on-hold. We also lack scans from chapters that were serialized in Asuka magazine.
So our main problem with this one are the raw files… it’d be great if there’ll be someone who share us the scans.

The Killer
The cleaning marathon’s almost done. Translation marathon should follow soon afterwards.

Makai Ouji: devils and realist
This may no longer be under the “active” project category, but our plans for this series haven’t changed.
If ever there will be changes, we’ll make an announcement about it.
So stop worrying and just wait. If you can’t, then feel free to do the release yourself.
We will no longer entertain e-mails asking us about this.

Neon Dimension Ascension
This series is already finished (though there seems to be a promise of a sequel! Yay!). We plan to marathon it eventually.
Our joint partner, Huffly Parfait, has closed down unfortunately. So assistance with the cleans and redraws will be highly appreciated.

Rengoku no Cartagra
This series is already finished as well. Cleaning marathon’s almost done. Translation marathon will follow.
There’s no way we’re not finishing a Takahashi Ryo series =P

Chapter 5 shouldn’t take as long as chapter 4. So just wait.
Assistance with cleaning, redrawing, and translating will be highly appreciated to speed things up… but it looks like we will no longer need to worry much about that once we’ve finalized the joint arrangements with the Silent Sky group :)

Snow White and Alice
Chapter 11 should be out soon. Chapter 12 should follow soon afterwards (or together with chapter 11). And then chapter 13.
Chapter 14 onwards still need a typesetter. Chapter 21 would need a cleaner/redrawer; this series has very pretty art but also crazy redraws ^^; So we prefer ones with experience for this series.

Tenkyuugi Sephirahnatus
Sorry fans, we had to put this on-hold. But its chapters are pretty short so it should be easy to catch up on this once we’ve started the marathon :)
Probably we just need a cleaner on this for now (since its cleaner has become busy).

* Secret Project *
This isn’t in the poll, but we decided to pick it up anyway because it’s by an author of one of the TZA projects.
We didn’t expect that another group will be picking this up though. Nevertheless, we’re still releasing the first chapter to not waste the hard work that was done for it so far.

For the Love of Haiku

June 3rd, 2013 | Posted by TZA in Releases | TZA - (0 Comments)

Today we’re sharing to you guys a fun Comic Gene oneshot about a haiku-loving celebrity in a virtual reality game, where he meets a mysterious eyepatched dude. It has references to the Wizard of Oz… something I don’t find that often in manga lately (most of them are based on Alice in Wonderland or Red Riding Hood). It’s also not often for us to see a main character obsessed about haiku ;P I

The title’s Cyber Dorothy (Densou Dorothy) by Muranaka Souta-sensei. Hope you guys enjoyed it as much as we did~

And before I end this post, a quick announcement: The Upcoming Shoujo projects page has been updated with 2 new titles. You can take a peek at our tumblr page. Additional allies to help us with our projects are more than welcome =)
