I always hate to see groups go. I hate it even more when they are good at what they do, and have been established a long time, like EA and Willful Muse were. There's always a small voice which says 'is this a trend which will result in the death of true fan-scanlations?'. I know it's paranoid of me, but I'm seeing too many of the semi-commercial half-assed watermarking brigade taking their place, sponsored by the money-making manga reader sites. I hope I'm wrong. In the meantime, I'd like to add my thanks to both groups for the huge amount of scanlations we have due to their efforts. Be lucky guys/girls.

Really? Still, it doesn't mean others will continue it. Of course you can just blame it on the manga being shit but I think when a new group starts they want to pick up titles they want to do. ^^

Sad to hear that E-A is closed. Good luck to the staff with their future lives. cmertb will probably continue translating since since cmertb is in many groups already.

The question is how many of E-A's projects will continue and how many will die.

Anyway thanks for hanging around for 5 years and delivering lots of goodies, E-A. You did more than good so just let the youngins take over. I wish you all the well o/
