Vote for The Next TZA Series Project

February 7th, 2013 | Posted by TZA in TZA

Since TZA has not yet reached its maximum number of series projects it could pick up, we are already thinking about what we’ll do next! As part of the last day of our anniversary special, we want to hear from you and help us decide!


There are a total of fifteen titles we’re already HIGHLY considering (this total is intentionally the same as the total number of letters in our group’s name). See the list below (click the image to view its details page at Manga Updates):

Fantastic Post Office
Makoto lives an ordinary life with his father and little sister, after the death of his mother. He spends his days doing the same things– going to school, talking with his friends, hanging out with his girlfriend, and spending time with his family. One day, though, after he rescues a bird from an attacking crow, things take a very different turn. First, his girlfriend breaks up with him, and then, later that night, he’s in a terrible traffic accident while running an errand. He awakes in a strange place, with several people and the bird he saved earlier, which now appears to speak English. They explain that he is not yet quite dead, but not necessarily alive, either. The bird offers him a deal: If he works as their miracle deliveryman, he can earn back his life. As a miracle deliveryman, Makoto re-enters the world as a kind of ghost, providing people with letters or packages that give them just what they need in a difficult time.
Yukihito: I really enjoy this so far. It reminds me of Letter Bee somewhat, but with a more slice of life feel.
A Destructive God Sits Next to Me PICKED by MoonFlower Scans!
Seri Koyuki is just trying to have a normal school life, but instead he ends up acting as the straight man to his odd classmate, Kabuto Hanadori. Kabuto is is a delusional high school student, whose fantasies range from believing he is a knight on a journey, to claiming that removing his eyepatch will release a darker alter-ego who he refers to as Michael Offenbarung Dunkelheit. Seri is determined not to let himself get pushed around by Kabuto, but it seems that this will be easier said than done!
Kaito: The eyepatch dude is AMAZING/AMUSING in everything he does. Not to mention amusing =P Besides, I liked Misoragumi and Nightmare was pretty good~
Fable
Aym is a slave who is descended from a a powerful witch. Because of this, his blood has the power to attract demons and he is used by his master to summon them. Aym accepts his cruel fate, but the sudden appearance of a group of magicians with the ability to defeat demons may just open up another path for him.
Yukihito: Aym is adorable. I also admire how he’s able to stay strong in a difficult situation.
inGrid PICKED by Decadent Descent Scans!
It is the duty of the temple knights to fight demons for the sake of the holy maiden. The holy maiden is the only person in the country who is able to save the sufferers of a mysterious illness which appears around the time of a new moon and has because a pillar of support for many followers of the church. One of the temple knights, Murey was brought up alongside the holy maiden and supports her without question. Even when he learns of the church’s twisted teachings…
Kaito: Sakamaki Yukisato of Izayakaku doing a mangaka involving knights and demons… IT’S GOTTA BE AWESOME!
JOKE:ЯR’S PICKED by Decadent Descent Scans!
Chiwa, a resident of the upper world, abandons his place on an elite course to become an officer in the underworld, despite the dreams which warn him to stay away from there. There he encounters his fellow special force members Nanairo and Juuya, who are both superhumans known as “Crows”. Crows are humans who have been modified by the crime syndicate “Joker”. Crows who escape the syndicate are taken in by the police and become members of the special force whose duty it is to defeat Joker. While sent out to observe the two Crows during one of their missions, Chiwa is saved from danger by a man who appears to know him…?!
Yukihito: Awesome so far! The dynamic between the Crows and officers in Jokers reminds me a little of the relationship between enforcers and inspectors in Psycho Pass. The art style is pretty cool too.
Inuyomi
When a dog dies possessed by a strong will or emotion, its soul becomes a monster known as a “Grief Dog”. The grief dogs cannot be seen by most people, however, two young men who are employees of a dog training school are able to release them from their burden. By coming into contact with the grief dogs, the two of them learn the dogs’ stories…
Kaito: I don’t expect anything less from Kinashi Runamu (of Hinekure Shisho). And besides, I’m more of a dog person.
Clear Qualia
In a distant Island, people suffer from a strange disease called “Pinocchio”. This disease causes patient’s limbs to rot, and before long, leads to death. But disease can be cured by using artificial limbs or “exchanging” limbs of people with special antibodies. These people with the antibodies, who only exist one in ten-thousand, are called Donors, and their bodies considered national treasures. One day, Dorothy, a Donor, exchanges her precious right eye for a male Plastica (a robot servant) who was about to be thrown away. Their meeting sparks the beginning of a story of a strange mistress and her strange Plastica.
Yukihito: Ponkotsu (the plastica) is definitely my favourite here, and it’s great that the series has a strong heroine like Dorothy.
Kaguu no Perelman
Touma has distanced himself from the people around him since he moved in with his aunt after his parents died in a car accident. One day, while Touma is out shopping with his classmate Miwa, his old friend Asato suddenly appears before him…
Kaito: This seems more interesting than the mangaka’s other work, Hanakisou (which I liked).
Memento Mori
Transfer student Rin Habikino has always been troubled by the rumours that he causes the deaths of people who become close to him, so he decides that he won’t make friends with his new classmates. While he is on his way home one day, a strange man covered in bandages approaches him with a warning. The man claims Rin is a death god and that he is about to become involved in battles against the Dark Arcana’s opposing force, the White Arcana. In order to defend himself, Rin must use his ability to control the dead…
Yukihito: I’m interested to know how Rin will handle his ability. Seems like it could be an intriguing series!
Kari no Tsukai
It has been eighty years since the declining population of women began to rule the land. Men and women live separately, with the women residing in a great palace high above the men’s quarters. In this divided land, Nao, a resident of the area outside the palace, is the bearer of a great secret…
Kaito: The dark haired dude (Itsuki?) is just so adorable.
Ore Alice LICENSED by Seven Seas!
One afternoon, while Makoto is at a library reading a picture book with his younger sister, he is transported into the picture book. When he wakes up, he finds himself inside the world of Alice in Wonderland and that he has become Alice! In order to return home, Makoto learns that he has to defeat the King of Hearts, and so begins a journey to the King of Hearts’ castle.
Yukihito: Alice in Wonderland inspired stories have become pretty popular recently, but I think this one has a different enough take on AiW to still be interesting. I love all the colourful character designs too!
SERVAMP PICKED!
Shirota Mahiru is the kind of guy who likes to keep things simple and hates dealing with complicated issues. But then he picks up a stray cat he found starving on the street, little thinking that his life from there on out would become very complicated indeed…
Kaito: Omari’s Sister has decided to drop this, unfortunately. But it’s sad to see a Comic Gene series discontinued… and there should be more Kuro love.
Light Novel Prince Seiya
Bunko G, the light novel department of Gene Factory is led by the charismatic and passionate editor-in-chief Seiya Sakuma. Light novel fan and high school student Souji Ibuki is starting his first day as a part-timer at Bunko G. How will he cope with the unusual personalities of the Bunko G employees…?
Yukihito: It’s always fun to see the ways in which Seiya shows his passion for light novels. The rest of the cast are really amusing as well.
Tramp
Protagonist Alto has always been followed by misfortune and his problems show no sign of coming to an end when he is suddenly kidnapped by pirates. He learns from them that the clover shaped mark on his body proves that he is the descendant of a legendary pirate. Finding the individuals who possess the spade, diamond, club and heart marks is said to lead the way to valuable pirate treasure. What adventures await Alto on his new journey…?
Kaito: TZA has released this in Filipino version…. it’s sad that there still hadn’t been an English version by other groups since that time. Perhaps it’s about time for TZA to go ahead and have this available in English too ^^
Reinousha Minato
Minato Kujou is cynical and sharp tongued young man who has no spiritual abilities at all. He is looked down upon by others in the spiritual profession and referred to as the “Zero Ability Individual”. Despite his reputation, he has a surprising way of defeating the monsters known as “spectres”.
Yukihito: Minato looks really cool and I’m curious to know more about his ability. The mangaka has a beautiful art style too.

Vote for the title/s you want TZA to pick up at the poll on the sidebar.

You can vote AS MANY AS YOU WANT.

But REMEMBER:

  • The list only contains titles that are not licensed and we think no other group is working on (or is picking up). But if there are any, please inform us and we will no longer be considering it… unless you would be proposing a joint project. Just email us either way. The crossed mangas are the ones that were picked up by other groups after we posted this (or that came to our attention after we posted the list) and are no longer available in the polls.
  • These fifteen titles are the ones which are most probable for us to be able to pick up. It’s because the admins and some group members are certain about liking them. It’s also because of several confirmed resources (like we have the raws, possible staff to work on it, etc.)
  • The title with the highest votes doesn’t assure that it will become the next TZA project. Aside from the votes, there are other things we would need to consider: total manpower (number of members that can work on it for each scanlation stage).
  • If you are interested and would be able to help TZA with the scans, or in translating, or in editing (cleaning, typesetting, or redrawing) these titles, that will definitely increase the chances of TZA picking it up. Collaboration Partners (rescanlators that assist us) would be helpful too. Please post comments if you are interested and tell us what you can contribute.  But we don’t want broken promises, okay?

OTHER MANGA TITLES WE’RE CONSIDERING:

Aside from the list above,  we are also considering MANY other titles (all are suggestions from our allies).

    Hi there~
    We are a spanish group that helped you before with one chapter of Conductor. Maybe we weren’t a really great help ^^’ but I would really love to see you guys releasing Sevamp, Clear Qualia or Shounen AR >..<

    • TZA says:

      Hello! Are you from La Noche?

      Okay! We’ll contact you id ever we decide to pick up any of the three titles you mentioned. Thank you =)

      • Xane says:

        Yes, I am from La Noche!
        Okay, I will be waiting your decision~ Count with me in that case ;)

        • Xane says:

          Me bothering again xD I have just notice Reinoushiya Minato, the same mangaka than Kiri *-* I just really love love the art style. Obviously I prefer the other three mangas mentioned (because I have already read some chapters xD) but I also offer my help for that one~ And I don’t bother you again ._.
          Regards~

  • Xane says:

    Eh… I think the comment got cut… I post the rest here, if it’s not the case, just delete it, please xD
    They are projects that we have been translating in spanish, and we would love to see the continuation. I can help you clean/redraw (‹‹but not really difficult ones like covers xD) one of these projects if you decide to pick it up. I can’t promise that I can clean a whole chapter each time (I have responsibilities with my own group and Omari’s) but if you need a back-up cleaner that helps with part of the chapter of some pages (well, if you don’t clean the sfx, I can help more, of course xD), count with me, if you want.
    I will be looking forward to see which project do you choose~

  • cielphantomhive1988 says:

    Hello, I wanted to tell them that if they choose ‘Boku no Furusato Restaurant’ or ‘Rikei Danshi. – Bokura no Rikashitsu ‘could help since they are also projects that we do in our group (Paradise Love Scanlations). I also wanted to let you know that the manga Kaichou Mokuroku ‘already doing another group, in fact soon will get the first chapter. —> http://cavescans.hcpsgc.info/blog/?page_id=655

    • AnimeManiac001 says:

      Thanks for warning us about Kaichou Mokuroku, we already crossed it from our list and from the poll. Glad to know that are other groups scanning the same manga that we are interested in (we have the same taste ;D), if the ‘winners’ of the polls are Boku no Furusato Restaurant or Rikei Danshi. – Bokura no Rikashitsu we will contact you .
      For now, no promises (;p), its too early to see witch is going to win.

  • Ayu says:

    Let’s see. I voted for the following new series:
    Fantastic Post Office
    JOKE:ЯR’S
    InGrid
    Memento Mori
    Reinousha Minato

    3 of those titles I’m already familiar with except for Fantastic Post Office (which has a good premise) and Reinousha Minato (sounds like an interesting read).

  • Kaine says:

    Hello!

    Certainly my vote is for JOKE:ЯR’S.

    Just wanted to tell you I saw in Manga Updates to come out ‘Ochita’. I’m so happy.

  • Valja says:

    I voted for “JOKE:ЯR’S” (got me totally curious), “Memento Mori” (my deeply hidden dark soul craves for more death gods :P) and “Reinousha Minato” (even though the description leaves much to the imagination I’m really interested in MC underestimated and the like… and I care much about the art style)
    I’d have liked to vote for a BL manga also, but I couldn’t find many infos about the names on the list :'( So I’ll just say this: I’d love it if you could work on a BL manga with a supernatural topic xD I know I’m asking too much but I had to write it :)
    As for the other suggested manga… I find “Shikiso” pretty interesting, not to mention it’s only 3 volumes ;) Also Rack – 13-kei no Zankoku Kikai, dunno why exactly (maybe the hot guy in the cover)
    Sorry *bows* maybe I wrote too much (and in a bad grammar probably).
    Oh, and thanks for ALL your work so far!! <3

  • M Ulloa says:

    también traduzcan Rack – 13-kei no Zankoku Kikai XD
