We are The Black Abyss - a manga scanlation group dedicated to bringing you fast releases of Pandora Hearts, as well as other projects!
New chapter releases will be posted in the Forum as we finish them, and you can find links for all of our scanlations in Projects.
First of all, I want you to know the one who's typing this mail out is Inu, also known as Malena - and I'm pretty sure all of you may already know me, since I'm the founder of the group as well as one of the main editors. I guess it's been a while since I've written such a big announcement post, haha. However, I considered this, a very important occasion, which requires all of your attention, since it'll become a turning point in the history of our scanlation team, The Black Abyss. Anyway, here I go.
I bet all of you may know that, unfortunately the co-administrator of the group, Aiakia'd been having loads of problems IRL, lately, hence, away from The Black Abyss - she'll be returning soon to us, though!-. This had been in fact, a tough situation I had to cope with, since handling the whole group and taking care of the site all on my own had become a bit too stressing as well as a difficult duty for me to carry out. Given the following conditions, I had even considered the option of finally shutting down the group, which I myself had opened nearly two years ago. I believe this, however, would have been a pretty sad end to all of us, since we've all been putting lots of efforts into making this whole group move on. I have to admit that the stress I had been going through had made me stubborn enough to take this decision, despite all the side effects this would bring to everybody. Nonetheless, some friends of mine knocked some sense into my head and made me realize, this, would have been a rushed decision I would regret in the future and I'm pretty sure they were right, now.
Instead of shutting the site down, we've decided to have a go with a merger. Yes, you've all read right. The Black Abyss will be merging with another scanlation team, which has been considered its sister site so far. The group I'm talking about is Twisted Curiosity, which many of you should know already that is managed in fact by two of our staffers and active members, Mai-Lynn and AKZ.
Mai-Lynn, AKZ and me had been planning this out for a few days, already, but we decided to make the official announcement post just now, when everything is done already.
Therefore, we'll proudly open our new group, the Fallen Syndicate! We look forward to seeing you in our new forums and follwowing us, from here on!
Chapter 59 of Pandora Hearts Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty together again is released, and can be downloaded on our forums! Enjoy everyone~ :3
Yeah, you've read it right! We've got our second release for this amazing project! Kuragehime's chapter 21 should already be up on the forums. And, I've got to say, Shuu and Inari are so freaking hilarious, they'll soon become my new OTP, lol.
Anwyay, hope you enjoy the chapter and thanks for your awesome support!
Aiakia's been having a hard time in real life, and so has been for Vincent, so Inu'll be the one taking up the duties of this scanlation work this time! And, in fact, she brings good news! After going through different mishaps, we finally make a new release for Shiki! I know we've been taking ages with this series... I feel so freaking bad about it, orz. I wish we could speed up our releases, but it seems impossible now. What's more, we're in need of an editor for the series. So, if you're willing to collaborate, please do so!
On another note, we're making our first release for our new project: Kuragehime! We've picked up this series, from what the anime series took off, which would be from the second chapter of volume 4, or also known as chapter 20! Hachimitsu scans is already working on it, and we -are- aware of it. In fact, I do love their work and appreciate their efforts, so you should totally check their releases if you love this series. Still, we hope you also enjoy our releases for this chapter as well!
All in all, the releases are up in our forums already, so please do check them out ;D.
Hi everyone! Just a quick update, Pandora Hearts Chapter 58 can now be found on our forums. It's been a hectic week, but I hope everyone will be able to enjoy this lovely new chapter~ <3 <3
So, we missed the opportunity to announce the first Blood Lad release in time, since .webs was acting up against us back then. However, we still encourage you to give Blood Lad's first chapter a try! To be honest, I'm really excited about this project. It's a seinen manga, with a bit of fanservice, but it's definitely worth it. We're still not sure where its plot is leading, but it's hilarious and its characters are awesome as well XD. Oh, and, make sure to visit Konnichiwa Scans as well, since we're working on a joint project on Blood Lad with them ♥. [They're awesome people, I swear XD].
Other than that, Pandora Hearts Chapter 57 is up in the forums! Make sure to check it, and read it carefully, because it's a trolling chapter. But, then again, when isn't Pandora Hearts trolling? You can check both releases at our forum ^____^.
On another note, Qashqai, an old TBA member and me, Inu, are planning on surprising you all with a new and awesome project. It'll be out soon enough~ I swear it will ♥.
Oh, and last but not least, I think we all know Loyal Kiss disbanded. We were working on a project with them, Zanbara, but do not panick! We'll still be working with the same crew, since they are opening a new team called Whisper Scans. All
Annnd, have I mentioned before, that we're terribly in need of more staff? Especially of translators and editors! So, apply, please? -gets shot- .
And that's pretty much it. Well, that and that I'll be going on holidays next week. But I'll be back for the Pandora release, so do not fear, my dear fans~ ♥
Chapter 56 of Pandora Hearts is out, and can be found on our Forum! As always, we at TBA hope you all enjoy the new chapter. I'll personally like to wish you all a wonderful holiday season as well! A new year is just around the corner, I look forward to seeing how amazing we can make this one!
I'm totally late in announcing this, but Chapter 55 of Pandora Hearts has been released in the Forum! Hope you all enjoy the latest chapter. And for those of you celebrating, have an awesome Thanksgiving!
It took a while in the making, but we've just released a one-shot called Octave (It's in the Announcements section of the forum). I've really enjoyed working on it, and can't wait for it to be serialized. The Nyaabari group has expressed interest in scanlating it when it comes out, so look forward to it!
Hello all~! Just to keep everyone up to date on Shiki - yes, someone was releasing random chapters of Shiki. While we did contact them to see what was up, we won't be working with them, and they're doing their own thing.
On a better note: I've just purchased volumes 8 and 9, as well as the Shiki art book! I'm pretty excited to share it with everyone when it comes in, which should be in a week or so. Also, we've hired an awesome new translator, Luna, who has already finished translating the rest of volume 7! So we should be finishing that up shortly.
As a whole, Shiki has been a cursed project for us. Between angering the original scanlators, to losing about 8 translators for it, to someone else randomly translating some chapters... but, nevertheless, we love Shiki to death. Pun intended. ^_^
I haven't read this chapter yet, so I'm pretty excited.... but you can find the newest PH chapter in the Forum!
Also, if you haven't already heard, we're currently working on the one-shot Octave (currently in the typing process), and will be working on Blood Lad as a joint project with Konnichiwa Scans.
Look forward to it!
It's been a while since our last chapter... but here's hoping you enjoy some Shinsengumi-goodness in our latest chapter of Zanbara! Those two boys just never cease to be adorable...
The end of September...the end of Kamui!? Time is just flying by! Check out the latest chapter of Kamui up in our Forum!
ULTRA SPECIAL BLAH BLAH:
I've been gradually moving all of the links to our projects over to the forum. If you check in our projects sections, it will link you to that project's forum page. I'm hoping to finish this soon so everything for download will be in the forum.
I've also discovered that the forum has a bulk email function!! I might start using that in the future to email members about our updates and such. I'm not enforcing anything now, or giving a deadline for anything...but if you haven't already signed up for the forum, doing so might not be a bad option *wink*
Thanks to everyone who has been submitting things for our Back To School Contest! Keep 'em coming!
And, lastly, thanks to everyone who's been active in our new forum! I'm so glad you all like it!
I can't wait to read this...I'm posting this quickly so I can download it, haha. The newest chapter of Pandora Hearts is out! Download it in our new forum! I'll put links up on the projects page later today ^_^
I'm pleased to announce a new project to you all! TBA is currently working on a one-shot called Octave. It's in the translation stage currently, but we're excited to release it!
And as some of you might have seen... I've been hinting at a new contest, and here it is!!
Back to School Contest!
We're leaving this pretty open for people of various talents. Using one of our projects, make something with a "Back to School" theme. It can be art, like a wall paper or banner. Or it can be fanfiction...like a poem, a one-shot, or even one with chapters if you really get into it!
So, using the characters of either Pandora Hearts, Switch, Shiki, Zanbara, or Crimson Shell, create something that shows the character(s) in a school setting...or "learning environment," haha. Depending on the number of submissions, we might divide the winners into categories~ so send all of your awesomeness to The dimensions of the banner are 930x284, if you decide to make one.
The deadline for this contest is October 24.
Can I tell you how much I love this series? Seriously, it's great. This chapter focuses again on our favorite doctor. Read on! You can find the chapter either in projects, or our *new* forum.
Inu and I have decided to organize things a little differently in the forum this time around - instead of making individual posts for each chapter in the announcements section, we're going to keep updating a single post with all the releases on it.
In the future, this might phase out us having to put links to our releases in both locations, but for now, I'll still be adding links to the chapters in the Projects section as well as the Forum.
Remember: I'll be officially deleting the old forum on September 18, so please save anything you need to before then.
Well, I did it - I made a shiny new forum for TBA!! Now, when you click on the Forum link, it'll take you to the new forum. Of course, since our current forum is still active and such, I'm keeping it open for another week. During that time, I'll be trying to move things over to the new forum. If you want to access the old forum, you can do so by clicking on the Recent Forum Posts beneath the CBox. I'm expecting to close the old forum by next Saturday.
But, in the mean time, feel free to start using the new forum! It's a new server for me, so I'll still be working on the kinks and stuff...so let me know any suggestions or problems you notice.
You'll probably have to resign up on the new forum. Sorry for any inconvenience with that!
I was trying to find a way to avoid paying for more bandwidth (again), but I bought it anyway. I'm not quite sure how our bandwidth is being used, since we don't host anything in particular on the site (it's all through 3rd parties). So if anyone has any thoughts or ideas on the subject, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm not totally savvy with technology, so there might be something I haven't thought of. Maybe it has something to do with direct linking? Baaaah. Who knows?
In other news, thanks to Vega, and others asking about it every now and again, I'm going to look into making an IRC channel. And maybe look into finding another host for our Forum. Not sure when those will get done, but I'll keep you all posted! Perhaps that will even help with the bandwidth ^_^
As for Shiki...the next chapter has been waiting on me! Ever since I moved, I've been a TOTAL slacker, so I'm fessing up here (poor Inu has only reminded me nicely about 5 times).
Lastly, I've gone through and deleted all of the spam accounts, so if you're still here, congratualtions! You weren't spam! If you're no longer here....wah wah waaaaah.... sign up again!
Hello again, everyone!! Aiakia here and back from vacation and moving... Thanks to Inu for keeping things up to date while I was gone.
I'm slowly getting back to my duties...but I wanted to make a note about the member spam. Inu called my attention to some fake spam member accounts, and so today and tomorrow I'm going through all 500 members, and deleting the spam accounts.
Of course, since I'm human, I might make a mistake and delete an account that isn't spam (but looks eerily similar). So, if you've suddenly found your account deleted, just sign up again. ^_^
Yup, Inu writing here again, since I know most of you want PH to be posted as soon as possible and Aiakia might be busy with moving and all. So, let's go straight to the point: Pandora Hearts chapter 52 is out! However, just let me tell you one thing about this chapter: it's seriously intense and cool. So, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did ;3!
BTW, please do NOT upload our scans onto ANY hosting site, ok?
Ok, this is my first time writing on the home page, so hello to those who don't know me already - I'm just writing because I don't know if Aiakia is already back from her holidays. I'm here typing this entry in order to announce that Kamui's chapter 48 is out! It's a pretty moving chapter, since we're in the final climax, so I hope you all enjoy it ;3!
Oh, and one last comment: Abby's back~! So be sure to welcome her ;3!
As some of you might know, yesterday on July 22, One Manga officially announced that it was closing its doors, and will be deleting all manga within the next week (the forums will remain open).
This has become a scary time for scanlators, who fear being prosecuted as the publishers have now joined a coalition to crack down on scanlations. For me, this is both a sad and exciting time. While it's unfortunate that such action had to be taken, I always knew that something like this would eventually happen. With this change, I can only imagine that new measures will have to be taken to satisfy both the public, and the publishers.
Several years ago, online scanlations were more difficult to obtain. Recently, though, a quick google search would produce an abundant supply of manga, so for this I can understand the actions of the publishers, and the original mangaka, who see all their hard work passed around in lower quality for free. It's disheartening.
As far as TBA's response to this whole ordeal, we're not stoping our scanlations. At least not right now. Perhaps in the future, as more options become available, we will. But, for now, we'll continue scanlating manga that hasn't been released in English.
As for the measures we will take, as of August 01, we will cease uploading our scans onto hosting sites, so they will only be available for download here. Also, as manga is officially released in English, the downloads here will be deleted.
Our main goal is to supply fans with manga that is currently unavailable for purchase. Hopefully in the future, publishers will take into consideration things like cost, availability, and timeliness of manga for its fans. Again, I shine the spotlight on the OpenManga project, which, hopefully, will alleviate the lack of availability of a lot of manga, and the length of time it takes to release full volumes.
Hopefully the actions TBA is taking now will protect us against unnecessary prosecution, while still allowing us to distribute our scanlations.
Thanks to everyone for your support!
We're on a roll this month. After a few stagnant weeks, we're back into action! Here's the third release of this week: Shiki ch 20!
Whoops. Chapter 7 of Zanbara and chapter 51 of Pandora Hearts have been done, and I didn't even realize!! So, here's your announcement. I haven't read 'em yet, either, so hope we both enjoy them! You can find links in both Projects and in the Forum...though there are a TON of mirrors available in the Forum that I probably won't add in the Projects section. ^_^
The next chapter of Pandora Hearts is here! This chapter features mostly Leo and Elliot, so we get some cute and eerie back story...among other things. You'll just have to read to find out!
Since this has come up again in the Cbox, I'll post it again: TBA IS NOT DROPPING PANDORA HEARTS. We have not received a cease and desist notice from Yen Press (perhaps only the hosting sites have?). If we did, or do, you all will be the first to know about it. As far as I know, Yen Press has only released up to volume 2. If and when they catch up to our releases, we're willing to take them down if it becomes an issue, but we'd still like to keep the unreleased chapters available for download until they can be officially purchased to keep the wait time down. And, as always, we still encourage people to buy the manga if it's available in their area.
We're all fans of Pandora Hearts, and the manga community, and would like to see everyone be happy.
Two releases at once! Enjoy the new chapters of Shiki and Zanbara in the Forum and in Projects.
So... upon logging into Webs to update a small mistake in the chapter listing for PH, I was greeted with a huge orange notification saying that we've exceeded our bandwidth, and if more wasn't obtained, they'd shut us down. So, I've bought an extra 3 gigs for the site. Hopefully that'll keep things running a bit more smoothly around here. But, can I just say - wow! when we first started, we were lucky if we got several dozen visitors a day...and now we're exceeding our bandwidth! It's actually really exciting, haha.
On another note, Inu stumbled across a page on Manga Helpers that I find really interesting. It's a creative project called OpenManga that aspires to bring manga artists, fans, and scanlators together so that we can, essentially, work harmoniously, without legal issues, while the artist still makes a profit, and fans still have access to free manga. Please check it out here. ^_^ We'll definitely be keeping our eye open for updates.
Wow! TBA has over 300 members now! That made me really happy to see... thanks for your support, everyone!
In other news, just when we.... er, you thought we had dropped Switch, here's chapter 28! Seriously, though, we really had considered dropping it for a while, but now that it's no longer able to be found on hosting sites, it's back on! Woo hoo.
After months of waiting, your beloved Shiki is finally here. We're so sorry for the wait. Hope you enjoy the new chapter!
Just when you thought you'd have to wait another day... here's the next chapter of Pandora Hearts for you!
Before Pandora Hearts was, well, Pandora Hearts.... it had a pilot chapter! Check it out in the Forum and in Projects ^_^
That's right, folks! This month marks our one year anniversary since The Black Abyss was founded. So, to celebrate, we've asked our fans to create our banner for us this month. And the winner (*points up*) is Koyami! Thanks so much for creating this banner for us, and celebrating our anniversary, and thank you to everyone who participated! Your submissions really made us happy!
So, approximately one year ago, Inu and Abby founded TBA as translator and editor to release Pandora Hearts faster than the current scanlators, and Aiakia joined shortly after as their proofreader. Back then, the three of us used to release PH on our LiveJournal community (which we still have, btw. Ahhh so nostalgic!)
Since then, we've created this website, picked up 5 new projects (one of which we've completed), added lots of new staff (and subtracted some that went MIA), and have gained over 250 members! Not too shabby for our first year!
So, I hope you all liked the brief history of TBA. Thanks bunches to everyone that reads our scanlations, and have supported us this past year! We hope to become faster, and more efficient with our scanlations in the future~!
Also, to celebrate our anniversary, Inu has created a TWITTER for The Black Abyss! Now you'll never have to wonder what our status is on a project! (Mwahaha!!) Feel free to follow us for stat updates, and other fun stuff~!
Ooooh yeah! Pandora Hearts is here for everyone to enjoy!
And don't forget about our BANNER CONTEST! Please submit your banner before the end of April (next weekend) and help us enjoy our one year anniversary!
For submission info, check out the Contests section in the forum ^_^
Check it out! More Zanbara for everyone - Chapter 5, and a side story to wrap up volume one. Hope you all enjoy it. We've already started work on Volume two, so wish us, and our joint partners Loyal Kiss, some luck! ^_^
Yeah, okay, so TBA has nothing to do with Soul Eater...but I did draw the pic, and it is Easter-related. So whatev. Anyhoo, we've released a double for ya today - chapter 27 of Switch and 47 of Kamui! So, enjoy the manga, enjoy the pic, and go eat some HAM!
Heya, everyone! You can now find chapter 47 of Pandora Hearts in the Forum and in our Projects section.
Edit:There's a typo in the original Pandora Hearts manga. On pg 28, when Ada is talking about her father, she means her "uncle." Jun Mochizuki mentions it in her blog, so there's your heads up. ^_^
Edit 2: Two releases in one day! Check out chapter 4 of Zanbara! fresh off the press... or, rather, Inu's hard drive. ^_^
We were hoping to get this done by Valentine's Day, since this special for Switch is V-day related... But, anyway, here you are! Hope you enjoy it. ^_^
Booyah! Kamui 46 is here! Enjoy your weekend, everyone! And don't forget to participate in our two Contests!
So, because Inu and I are crazy (well, Ratte's craziness helped, too), we've decided that we want to name our Cbox! Seriously, this thing is like a pet to us, hahah. Anyway, it'd be no fun just to name it ourselves - we want YOUR help!
Leave us some name ideas in the Forum, and we'll put the best 5 in a poll for a vote! The winning name will, obviously, be bestowed upon our lovely Cbox.
We're thinking that the Cbox is a "he," but don't let that put a damper on your crazy names! It can be anything you want!
Happy first day of March, everyone! Here's the next chapter of Zanbara! for you to enjoy. As always, thanks to our friends at Loyal Kiss for their part in this joint project. Hope you all like it as much as we do... and enjoy the new spring-ish banner, courtesy of Inu!
It feels like a while since our last release! But, anyway, here's the next chapter of Pandora Hearts for your enjoyment. I actually haven't seen it at all yet, so I'm just as excited at you all are to read it. Woo hoo!
Also, it's come to our attention that a lot of manga are being pulled from hosting sites... But, no worries - TBA is not dropping any projects. Thank you to everyone for your continued support.
Check out the newest chapter of Zanbara! And....depending on where you're living, enjoy all the crazy snow.
Well, it's been a few months since our last contest, and as our 1 year anniversary is coming up...we thought we'd make our fans work a little bit, and slack off ourselves. Mwahahaa.
So, we'd like for you to create our banner for May. It can be anything you want, as long as our name, "The Black Abyss" is on there somewhere, and it has something to do with one of the manga we scanlate (all of which can be found in Projects). Preferably it'd have something to do with it being our 1 year anny, too...but how you choose to show that is your choice - either by words or images.
You can draw the banner, use images and photoshop them, whatever you like. The winning banner will be featured on our site for the whole month of May. And both the winner and the runner up will be posted in the contests section in the forum.
We'll stop taking submissions around the end of April, but the sooner we get 'em the better.
Here are the quick contest guidelines:
Deadline: Monday, April 26
Banner dimensions: approx.1000x284
Send submissions to: email@example.com
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate ask. Just PM Aiakia (me), or send us an email.
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to your submissions! Thanks everyone!
It's finally here! The first chapter of Zanbara can be downloaded in Projects and in the Forum. Thanks muchly to our friends as Loyal Kiss for allowing us to work on this as a joint project with them.
Oh, and as a side note, while TBA doesn't really adhere to any hosting policy time lines, LK likes to wait for 3 days before uploading released material to a hosting site. So, please, don't upload this to a hosting site (aka mangafox/onemanga) until Friday. Thanks everyone, and enjoy!
Additional Note: Got a message back from the person who's been scanning in Switch on MF. I had asked if she could either stop scanning, or allow us to upload our scans as we finish them, and they had this to say: "it would be ok if u replace my scans with ur translations as u translate them, i just want da readers to read the latest volumes of switch, and i since i have until volume 11 i would like to continue to upload them until then. But yeah please replace the scans when u are going to upload a new chapter."
So, there ya go. She'll keep scanning, and we'll just replace the scans with ours as we complete them.
Another release? So soon? Hells yeah! We've been really excited for Shiki, and now you'll get to see why. These next few chapters are craaazy! Ch 18 is currently in translation, and it'll be a doozy when it gets here... but for now, here's the equally awesome chapter 17! Enjoy!
As a side note, best wishes to Inu on her vacation! She'll be away for about two weeks, and we'll miss her dearly ^_^ But, in preparation for her departure, she's already made February's banner, and done lots of other nifty things. So, thanks, Inu!
Hey all! We've just released one of the side stories at the end of Switch volume 6. Hope you all enjoy it!
Also, we here at TBA wanted to give a big THANK YOU to all of our members - we now have 200! I'm really happy and excited....this group first started with just Inu and Abby on Livejournal, and has grown into this awesome community! Thank you everyone!
Hope you all enjoy this next chapter of Pandora Hearts... I know I sure did! The plot is really gettin' thick now ^_^
Okay, so some of you might have noticed that someone's been posting scans of Switch on MangaFox lately. From the looks of it, these scans are from the licensed English version of Switch, aren't in terribly great quality, and posted out of order.
Rest assured that TBA is STILL working on Switch regardless.
Firstly, scanning in from the licensed copy is not cool. While we know that a lot of people from the US are able to read Switch online as we post it, we still urge people to go out and buy the professional version of the manga, as we want to support the community, and the artist, and so forth. Also, we know that there are a lot of ESL people who can't buy the manga in their country, and would only be able to import the English version at an astronomical price, so our translations enable them to enjoy manga, too.
Obviously, there's little we can do about this person uploading... and, sure, there's probably a lot of people out there who are probably happy, since, even if it's of poor quality/out of order, it allows them to read Switch that much faster. However, I just wanted to put it out there that I (Aiakia) think it's a little disrespectful not just to us, but toward the manga community in general. If you can translate Switch better/faster/cleaner than we can, you're welcome to do so. But, if you're just going to buy a $10 manga, scan it hastily, and shove it up for people to look at, what's the point when we're still working on it?
Okay, done. Phew.
Happy Saturday, everyone! Enjoy your weekend now with some fresh Kamui~! Chapter 45 is here --- woo hoo! (Oh, I've had too much OJ this morning...sugar overload!)
This has only happened once, but I think it's still important to address. Recently, we received an application for a Japanese > English translator. Naturally, we were very excited - more translators means more potential projects, or back up translators in case the current ones get sick / have exams, and so on.
After trying to follow up on the application, we learned that it was just a prank. Some friends had submitted his email to us as a joke.
Needless to say, we're a little peeved about it. Especially considering that webs.com, our host, only allows 25 forms per month (which is what we get when you submit an application). We've never really needed more than that, but now one's been wasted all for a prank.
Again - this has only happened once, but I really wanted to type about it to say that we really don't like that sort of thing, so please don't do it. ^_^
Oh yes! Here to end the weekend on an awesome note, it's the next chapter of Kamui! Hope you all enjoy it!
Also, as some of you might have heard, we got a little worried about Zanbara! as we found out that Loyal Kiss was planning on scanlating that as a joint project with Bliss. But--we've been in contact with Loyal Kiss about it, and everything's been resolved! So, instead, we will be working with Loyal Kiss to bring you Zanbara! (Bliss was willing to drop out, if it meant we could have faster releases). So, hurrah! It's our first joint project!
This release has been a long time coming. After raws and translator shortages, here we bring you the finished chapter! And even better--!! Abby has already translated chapter 17, so you won't have to wait another several months for the next chapter! (Seriously, this took us a while by our standards. Still, thanks everyone for all of your support and understanding ^_^)
It's so odd to be writing "10" instead of "09" >_< Anyway, here's our first release of the new year - Switch!
Also, a tip off to all of you starving Shiki fans - the next chapter is being QCed, and should be ready for release some time this week! The long wait is finally over!
Currently we here at TBA have over 180 members from all over the world. So, in celebration, we wanted to wish each of you an individual Merry Christmas:
즐거운 성탄절 보내세요 및 새해 복 많이 받으세요
Wesołych świąt i szczęśliwego nowego roku

I tried to find the languages for everyone who listed their location...hopefully those are right. Anyway, have an awesome holiday, everyone! (And Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends~!)
Check it out! Not only do we have the *new* Pandora Hearts chapter for you...but we also have started on the PH omake Gil in Wonderland! You can find links for both in Projects and on the Forum.
Now, as Gil in Wonderland is an ongoing side story (it's being released with the DVDs, I think), it's not finished. We'll continue to update it as we find chapters for it...but if you come across scans, or other omake, or anything PH related that you'd like us to scanlate, please let us know ^_^
Booyah! Act 25 of [Switch] is up, and it's a good one. (Mwahahaa!) No, really, read it and you'll see what I mean.
Also, it's about time I introduce our newest members to the TBA Team! Please welcome:
Kiyoshi - translator for Shiki & PH
Killua_64 - translator for PH & ***** (Shhhh.... it's a new project. ^_~)
Kayla - translator for PH omakes (a la Gil in Wonderland, etc.)
Seikishi - translator for [Switch] & PH
EurydiceQ - proofreader for PH &....well, haven't decided what else I'll throw at her, yet.
