Some groups go out with a bang, some with a wimper. Seems that this group had its own set of fireworks.
Also find it bemusing that trying to visit their web site gets blocked by my spyware blocker.

*GGpX - there is no honour among thief, we all steal by doing scanlations, so don't lie to the members. Every scanlator is free to scanlate whatever he likes. And this is a fundamental rule of scanlations.
whatever FH stole or did not steal that translation for OP (for which the group was banned from MH - interesting that later was unbanned) is very debatable question. I didn't include because I was not on the scene that year and I have no idea what happened. Some say FH stole it, other that there was just a misunderstanding.
Don't misundestand me I'm telling this story from the prespective not of a member but of a objective spectator. My only desire is to tell why FH fell even thought it could still be running.
*digitalr hell dear DR it's always fun to see you. I still remember how you always talk about doing that and this and never actually do anything. What if I'm banned? Does that make me someone who wasnt there? Do you know why I'm telling this story, and no it's not because I'm carving for attention - it' because I had 4-5 emails asking me what happened to FH.
Oh if you want to tell your side of FH story mail me at thefolenangel[@] I'm collecting the pieces from the old team members.

I'm telling this story as a warning for future scanlating groups.

did i hurt a little fh fanboy?
what is this? some kind of funeral? "please say nothing bad a about a dead person"?
ggpx is right, shut up if you got nothing of value to say. not only did they steal work, they had the lowest quality and there were dozents of competing groups. the ones i mentioned were just a few examples iditot.
franky house never had what it takes to stay long.

I didn't get into reading scanlated manga until 2009, so by the time I started reading stuff FH was already looking shaky. But I will never ever complain about a group that did work on series that I liked and no one else worked on like Asu No Yoichi and Rosario Vampire.

Regardless of how much you liked or hated FH, what happened to them should be a template for how other groups can avoid a similar fate.

Sadly, your warning falls on deaf ears.

I don't think so smile
the fact that some people decided to be i*diots doesn't mean that all the people will do so. You know everyone has a free will smile
