There once was a group named Franky House. I'm sure you've heard about it before. It was going great. But as with all things on earth, it was not meant to last. Here is their story:

Edit: To clarify, Franky House has been dead for about half a year now.

April doesn't seem like a good month.

i think the died the moment they were created.
they scanlated all the mainstream stuff everyone else was scanlating allready.

their competitors were bink, mangastream, japflap, whatever, sleepy and so on and so on.

and their quality was abismal..so from my perspective. nothing was gained and nothing was lost now either.

Keishou has closed down indefinitely, too.
There really is a lot of bad news this month.

Both legal companies and scanlators going down. Earthquakes in Japan. It's nuts. I've seem more n00bie groups then I have in years and yet all the big groups are going down. Kitty Wills: And we know that half of the n00b groups won't make it. Gotta wonder if we are entering a dark age for manga. =/

I love how thefollenangel forgot to include how Franky-House stole translations, had no respect towards any other scanlators and she was the one who created the model to make scanlations as quick as possible so they could force people to download from sites like MegaUpload & DepositFile and make money from those scanlations.

Now you have a bunch of groups who scanlate as fast as they can with ZERO attention to detail - not to mention accepting dictionary-translators - so that they can make some money off of the scanlations.

Never let the truth get in the way of a good story, eh thefollenangel.

I'll remember Franky-House as the degradation of the scanlation community; Where the majority of new scanlators learned that it was okay to have no respect for each other, that it was okay to over-scanlate the same series and that even though scanlations are illegal and you're cutting on the American companies' profit, it's okay for you to make a profit even though we're supposed to be doing this as a free hobby.

Forgive me for not having very fond memories of such a putrid group.

I find it strange though, that the Franky-House "story" has to be told by a banned member? I remember thefolenangel as the biggest liar I have ever met in the scanlation world.

Oh well, we all need attention in some way.

honestly, if you got nothing good to say, just keep it to yourself, at one point, mangastream, sleepy, etc weren't even existed and FH released their stuff on schedule for the most part.

Yes, because Franky-House was created before Null, Inane, Shannaro, Manga-Rain, JapFlap, and so on. You know, the groups Franky-House stole the projects from?

Oh wait, F-H wasn't created before them.

Take your own advice and shut up.

It feels like scanlation groups are dropping pretty fast this month.

So... why exactly is there a 'news update' over something as silly and pointless as this?
