Thank you very much for all your support throughout these two plus years that we have been around. My co-admin has been MIA for more than half a year and after I’ve started working, I haven’t really managed to find time to do scanlation stuff and manage the group, so it is with a sad heart that I’m making this announcement that the group will be shut down. The silver lining is that Crystalynn (who is part of the group) of Fujoshi Bitches (FB) has very generously agreed to take over a large majority of ongoing projects, aside from selected pairings or stuff that has been lost with my co-admin. I will attempt to complete the ones that she won’t be taking over with some help. Regarding our future projects, we will definitely be dropping some, but FB will be picking up a significant number of them (most probably KuroBasu, SnK, Haikyuu!!), so if there is anything you’d like to see scanlated, please do join them to help out. Of course, working on such a large number of projects will take some time, since FB have their own ongoing manga projects, so please understand you might not see some projects until a long, long time later.
To all previous and current staff (since the group chat doesn’t seem to be working): Thank you very much for being part of BDA and for all your contributions no matter how short or long you’ve been here. I’m very grateful for all your support and hard work and I’d like to wish you all the best.
To all raw providers: Thank you very much for all your support. If we end up dropping projects using your raws, we will inform you as soon as possible, otherwise please assume we/FB will be getting them out when we can.
I should have responded to all outstanding retranslation requests and updated the website with the relevant information already. I know I still have yet to get back to certain people, but I will try to get back to you as soon as possible, or within the week, or by next week at latest while I figure out certain things. The website will continue to run and serve as an archive as long as our host doesn’t take it down. (My co-admin was in charge of the hosting so I have no idea what the terms are.) All our releases have been uploaded to our online reader, so please check there if the download links aren’t working any more. Please don’t overload the bandwidth by overusing the reader since I won’t be able to prevent the website from being taken down if it exceeds the bandwidth for the month. I will be reblogging the releases that FB completes on our tumblr when I can, and might post minor updates there as well. Only my co-admin has access to the group email so unfortunately I haven’t been able to reply to anything directed there. Please direct any questions to our tumblr and I’ll try to get back to you when possible.
Once again, thank you very much for all your support all this time. Hope everyone will be able to read and enjoy doujin elsewhere in the future~
