Second order of business. Cynthia and I have decided that we're going to be taking some time off from working on the monthly Fullmetal Alchemist chapters. We are, as has become apparent, quite a bit burnt out from two and a half years of it, and we think a break for a few months is in order. Or at least it's better than making empty promises about the chapters getting done.
We won't be gone forever, of course! And we're not dropping off the face of the earth, either;
I plan on using the time to get some work done on our other projects, and possibly making some slight changes to the site layout. I'll also probably still be offering downloads of the RAW chapters on the site for those of you who don't like to or can't download them with torrents or free hosting sites or such. (I don't intend for the RAW downloads to be as late as this month's, though. sfdlkhjlskjs)
So, hopefully by the time our break is over, we'll be sorely missing working on Hagaren and be more enthusiastic about getting the chapters done. Absence makes the heart grow fonder and all. Or something.
In the meantime, there are other scanlation groups who are working on Fullmetal Alchemist. (I don't know who they are, though. If any commenters would be so kind as to enlighten me I'll add links to the other groups' sites!) And for those who want to have our versions of the chapters someday, we do intend to get them done eventually. Maybe the update declaring the end of our break will even include the release of several chapters at once, who knows? We'll just have to see what happens.
Sorry about this. But no matter what happens, we love you all! <3
