Ala Atra Closes its doors
babel writes: After three years and over four hundred chapters, Ala Atra Scans released their final chapter today.

Their leader, vteck9 wrote in the forums:

"Ala Atra Scans is closing down effective immediately.
The plain and simple fact is that we just don't have any active staff, even the forum is dead.

Nagasarete Airantou is being taken care of by [g] Vortex-Scans[/g].
Cahe is still up in the air and open to anyone that wants it.

It has been a fun three years but all things have their time.
Let us not focus on the fact we are closing but on what we have done, what we have accomplished.

It has been fun and I will never forget my time with the group.

Farewell and good luck.
Untill our paths cross again."

Not another one. God this sucks. I loved this group's releases. Oh well. Thanks and good luck to the former members.


» sakura8429 on November 29th, 2011, 11:10am

that's 2 big groups closing in one day


» darkraiders on November 29th, 2011, 12:48pm

Well this is didn't affect me as much as dynasty since i wasn't reading a lot of stuff from them but still it was a good group and i really enjoyed the few chapters i have read from them.


» MewMan on November 29th, 2011, 1:03pm

well, they haven't been active for some time
wish you guys the best in your life


» Suo.Minona on November 29th, 2011, 1:22pm

All good things will eventually come to an end, Ala Atra Scans did very well in the time they were active, we remember the joy you brought us, your hard work will never be forgotten, and it's a good thing that the group ended with no drama or hurtful stuff like that.
My only hope is that from the ashes will rise a new phoenix. Good bye


» Yohshiro on November 29th, 2011, 1:29pm

Thank you for your hard work and dedication on all of the releases you gave us.
Goodbye, Ala Atra Scans.

Saw the news on their site this morning when I went to get the latest chapter of Nagasarete Airantou. I'm really sad to see them close up shop as I thought they did an excellent job on both this title, as well as Cahe Detective Club. Glad to see that another group is picking up NA, and I can only hope that Cahe gets the same treatment.


» Kaitentsuki on November 29th, 2011, 3:18pm

Well didnt affect me though...wait a sec! didnt Ala Atra give me mah dosage of Iris Zero!? *faints*


» thevampirate on November 29th, 2011, 3:29pm

Well Vteck didnt exactly find homes for all our series, but we made sure NA would be taken care of since it was our flagship series. I expect that Simple will take over Iris Zero but dont quote me on that. We had a good run and managed to catch up NA to the magazines in a matter of 2 years even though we were behind by 3.5 years worth of chapters when we started. If any groups want to take our series let one of the other members know at our forums.


» T1 on November 29th, 2011, 3:35pm

Simple Scans? That depends on if they got staff enough. Question is do you do enough for your Iris Zero? >biggrin


» Kaitentsuki on November 30th, 2011, 4:30am

ouch hit me where it hurts embarrassed


» PROzess on December 2nd, 2011, 5:43pm

ofc Simple doesn't have enough staff.
But Iris Zero is handled by Gal and abc, so they will pull through, I hope bigrazz


» T1 on November 29th, 2011, 3:38pm

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"

Ahh ala ala ala....well you bought me lots of good titles; Jio, Ar Tonelico, Rappi and other great stuff. Oh well I can just go find the raws for stuff I still need to complete. biggrin Sux for others who don't know japanese though, lol

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 )


» Milleniummaster18 on November 30th, 2011, 9:23pm

Greetings! And you would be...?


» Seijurou on December 12th, 2011, 12:07am

You copy and paste almost the same comment whenever a group closes down. You really like what is happening, don't you?


» LT on November 29th, 2011, 4:45pm

Nothing of value was lost.


» Seijurou on December 1st, 2011, 1:18pm



» Galooza on December 1st, 2011, 11:33pm

Haters gonna hate.


» StarlightDreams on November 29th, 2011, 4:46pm

:'( Thanks for all the hard work. I remember the early days of the group and all the old staff and working on that joint project together.


» Bloodkay on November 29th, 2011, 5:21pm

It's sad to see such well known groups closing. I will miss you, Ala Atra.


» VawX on November 29th, 2011, 5:35pm

2 groups at once disbanded mmm...
i only read a little number of titles from dinasty, but Ala Atra is one of my fav scanlator mmm...


» swiftstrike on November 30th, 2011, 3:22pm

read and enjoyed a lot of your scanlations smile


» Milleniummaster18 on November 30th, 2011, 9:20pm

I visited this group's place during their Negima days, Nagasarete Airantou was their pride. Sad to see them go.


» Oxwivi on December 1st, 2011, 2:14pm

Thank you! You guys were one of the better scanlators, thanks again for scanlating two of my favorites mangas, both which you mentioned. I'm sorry that, as a leecher, I could not help.


» makoz on December 2nd, 2011, 12:49am

RIp. The group that picked up and never gave up Alive. Awesome group! Wish the staff all the best!


» Chaoskitty on December 2nd, 2011, 8:45am

And another hits the dust. This seems to be a trend these days. Thanks for all the hard work guys.


» dullapple on December 2nd, 2011, 9:23am

recently many scanlation groups are closing
that's bad too see.
hope ala atra members good luck


» PROzess on December 2nd, 2011, 5:45pm

Yeah and it's understandable.
Scanlation isn't that appreciated anymore. Well the scans are, but not the worker smile


» Chaoskitty on December 2nd, 2011, 9:19pm

Speak the truth, I've never had to work so hard before to get staff. >.>


» cloudsora on December 2nd, 2011, 10:16pm

Well I was reading a lot of series from Ala Atra Scans and I have to say I'm going to miss you guys.
Thanks for all the releases.


» vteck9 on December 3rd, 2011, 12:00am

Thank you all for you support.
It is indeed unfortunate that Ala Atra had to close but we were not really getting much done.
It was time to let a more active group take our series so they could continue.


» saheton on December 3rd, 2011, 6:45am

i think the same as vteck, i never really comtributed that much to the group, but i will still miss it. esp. drunk Thousand_Master, that was insane. and the sleepty nicks.
