Tenshi-Tachi Closes Its Doors
It is a sad day as the group Tenshi-Tachi shuts down. Based on their site, they are not able to continue scanlating manga due to "real life issues". Furthermore, there is a plea for other groups to continue their projects.

We wish you well, Tenshi-Tachi.

With New Year Comes New Poll
Thanks go to Sin on our IRC channel for the new poll idea. We had a similar poll on the forum somewhere...but now it's time for us to see what the masses say!

Previous poll:
Question: Did you give/receive manga during this Christmas season?
Yes - votes: 1087 (28.3%)
No - votes: 2748 (71.7%)
There were 3835 total votes.
The poll ended: January 1st 2008

I was expecting "No" to win, but I can't believe over 1000 people either gave/received manga over Christmas! We sure are getting to the community~
