    Default Emma -- this project has some bad karma apparently...

    It happened first about a year ago (if my memory does me any service). Manga "Emma -- the Victorian Romance" was licensed with only 3 chapters left to be scanlated. I still remember my "happiness" --having to wait for uncertain while till translation gets to the last volume, then ordering it overseas... Hell, could they have waited a little) Then these chapters came from uncertain source (still enjoy this "used without permission" tag -- open for so many subtle interpretations) ) Life went on rather nicely. Untill yesterday.

    The "Victorian Romance Emma Second Act." was stroked out on first page of IIchan translators. Inside there was a rather predictable news. Licensing, seize of work, general disenchantment... But one small piece gave all story rather supernatural turn. Guess, how many series remained to be translated?
    Yes, three are they.

    Do you believe in coincidences? Or in fate? Strong enough to make three series to appear suddenly on some torrent junk yard with a cheeky tag "NOT translated by IITran!"?

    P.S. Sorry for not much of universally useful info. Just had to vent frustration a bit...

    Whee. I share your disappointment -- especially since I was waiting for the series to complete before downloading and watching -- but, well, yay licensing. Getting the creator more money is ALWAYS a good thing, as is getting her more exposure.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    The number three is just a coincidence. The matter of fact, licensing an anime series before it finishes happens sometimes, although nowadays it is occurring more frequently than ever. I sort of enjoy Emma too, so this licensing will affect my little pleasure.
