Dynasty Scans Closing
XiongMao-kun writes: Dynasty Scans has shut its doors.

This one hits home since I actually worked for them for a few years (before the whole yuri phase). Cya, Casusby. (And thanks for the shout-out on your news post. It was a good time with you guys.)

It's hard to believe when a great scanlation group disbands but two? Even though it's sixty degrees outside, the holidays feels a little colder this year. sad

Since SnoopYCool closed this is the first time a group closed and affected me this much i love yuri and was reading almost every release from Dynasty.
I want to thanks everyone who have worked on scanlating all the manga Dynasty scanned.
Lot of hours of enjoyment from them and i hope for them the best.

The only title of theirs I read since they went primarily yuri was Dokidoki Majo Shinpan!, but it's still sad to see another group close down. Hope another group is able to pick up their projects so their readers don't have to see some of their favorite series disappear.

I kinda saw that coming...not that this group would do it but that it would happen after the rants I did on our site and then later gave up by closing my group. (Though I'm still in process of finishing stuff cuz I'm damn great)

No workers means no scanlation.
Now leechers would say: "It's okay, someone else will do it some day"
My comment to that is: "The question is when and what's going to be forgotten"

Anyway I enjoyed many of Dynasty's titles since they were one of the few groups that released yuri titles. Lili has always been my first though. They also had to drop many titles because of staff problems.

Now who's going to be next, kekekeke?

PS: I rest my case, people (You know who you are wink See, I know the future bigrazz )

So that basically leaves Illuminati-Manga as the only non-suck group left.

Though I haven't followed their recent stuff, I used to download most of their output in the early days (which goes back to about 5 or 6 years ago IIRC), especially Pastel which I still read. They did a great job on their titles; only a small handful of groups could match the quality of their work.

Good luck to those leaving now, and thanks to those who gave me so many quality chapters back then.

Sad day..
I really liked all the people I talked to in their IRC...

I was actually starting to get into ore yuri content and Dynasty Scans themselves. But I can't blame them. It's hard to do this job when you don't have active staff members. But thanks for the work you've done. I have enjoyed it.

ill miss this group. at least there readers still going on.

Man, I have read quite a few of their works and intend to read more. I think their scanlations had quality and retained honorifics. Judging from the reactions, people really liked them, too.

A sad day indeed.
