Group News – Reflection & ViVid

There’s been too much silence from us on our website so here’s a quick update to let you all know what’s going on.

So, in lighter news, we have word that Nanoha Reflection[ANN] will actually screen in some U.S. theaters. This is certainly wild and unexpected but thank you Eleven Arts for giving some of us outside of Japan a chance to see the movie on the big screen. This might not mean much to the lot of you not in the U.S. but this is quite the unexpected development for such a niche series. We’ll be sure to share any further info as we hear about it.

The other news is that we’re unfortunately out of a main typesetter again. We had hoped that things would resume after a quick vacation break but turns out, that’s not going to be the case.

We’ll scramble to get a few chapters of ViVid going again in the meantime but we really need someone who wants to make this their role in the team. We’ve got scripts and clean raws to work with along with some sharp-eyed people to help keep quality in check.
If you’re interested in helping roll out chapters of Nanoha ViVid, get in touch with us either by email or on our Discord. We’ll be waiting and so will the fans.

Check below the break for details on the current status of the download archives.

Kadokawa brought down most of our MediaFire downloads

This is a terrible surprise.

It seems someone representing Kadokawa just made things difficult for us.
Every scanlation we were hosting on our MediaFire account of one of their works (ViVid, Force, Innocent, The Movie, A La Carte, and others) was taken down yesterday.
I did not receive any direct notification.

This isn’t like before where we’d just upload a new version of the archive, this wasn’t just a single zip file. This was almost everything we were hosting.

It’s terrible news. For the time being, all we can do here is recommend online manga readers like Dynasty-Scans if you missed the most recent release.
Until this is sorted out, releases will likely be on a short hiatus. Sorry everyone.


EDIT: Resuming business and usual. Check this post for news.

Posted in Nanoha ViVid, Releases | Tagged | 6 Comments down and deactivated (update)

Popular anime torrent site NYAA has lost control over its Swedish .SE domain name, which was deactivated a few hours ago. As a result, the site has become unreachable. The domain status suggests that the responsible registry intervened, which is something that could happen in response to a copyright-related court order.

Update: The and domains are also deactivated now. This suggested that there’s a coordinated action involving multiple domain name registries.

Update: There are several people suggesting that the domain names were taken down by the owner. The org domain also has a “pendingDelete,” which could back this up. When a domain is deleted before the expiry date it could trigger a “serverhold” status, which is generally set by the registry.

There are also some screenshots in circulation that would back this up. However, TorrentFreak hasn’t been able to verify these.

We can only speculate, but given that the domains were registered through different companies, manual removal by the owner would be a plausible explanation at this point.

Update: TorrentFreak heard from several people, including site moderators and other people close to the site, that NYAA’s owner decided to close the site voluntarity. In other words, this likely means the end.

Original story: Anime Torrent Site NYAA Goes Down After Domain Name Deactivation

Since all of our anime releases and promos were done through Nyaa, this breaking news was worth mentioning here.
Any further updates and developments will be added to the Torrent Freak article.

Since it’s confirmed, by all reasonable accounts, that Nyaa is gone for good, we will be discussing internally what we’ll do with all the Nyaa links we’ve shared over time.
This will take some time to sort out. Our apologies in the interim.

Happiness Maker by ameiru – NanoFate and Vivio doujin

HappinessMaker preview

So it just so happened that someone I know was at our local anime convention. While making a stop by the doujin (and dakimakura) booth, they came across what was the only not-hentai Nanoha doujin to be found. Knowing me and that I have access to a whole Nanoha scanlation team, they decided to pick up the doujin on my behalf with barely so much as a second thought. And that’s how this team got saddled with one of the most overwhelmingly yuri doujins I’ve ever seen.

With that preamble out of the way, this red-inked tribute to the Takamachi Family takes off, guns blazing from the very start. This isn’t some slow burn journey through the subtext and nuances of Nanoha and Fate’s relationship. This is Vivio being old enough to ask the most direct question she could have possibly asked of her two moms.

Author ameiru brings us this sticky-sweet entry about an unconventional family coming to terms with themselves and quelling their doubts and worries about what each other thinks of the matter. It’s a fast ride into tender love and acceptance in this extra-fluffy, sugar-packed story that grabbed subtly and bashed it over with a yuri-shaped mallet.
