Bwuh??

Now that it's almost Chapter 59 time, I decided to check up on the ZOMGFTA site for the first time in like a week (bad mod, BAD!). And I came across this comment...


Hey there! This post is just a heads up:

The scanlation group Shannaro! recently reformed and is striking out with a vengance. They originate on the forums that I frequent, and are a decent bunch and produce high quality scanlations most of the time.

They are going after FMA soon.

I noticed that your latest chapter wasn't up to snuff. Now, I'm not complaining, mind you. Thanks to you, I get to read FMA 7-8 Vol. ahead of the U.S. I just want you to know that speed is very important, but quality should be maintained.

Anyways, I'm sure you've been busy lately (I have been, too, with examinations and whatnot), and this chapter is an abberation. All the others have been super high quality.

I just wanted to say: beware!

*cracks whip* kukukukukuku


And another comment before that:

I found a LOT of grammatical/dictional errors within chapter 58... did zomgfta not have time to QC this time or somthing? It's awsome that you have had consistant, and fast releases, but I'm sure no one would mind if you're release was a day or 2 late because of proper QCing

I don't get this. I just checked over the scanlation myself and I can't find anything wrong with it other than some lines sounding a little awkward, but grammatically incorrect? I'm usually just fine with grammar; whenever I have people critique my writing, there's never any problems concerning that. But then, since I'm the one who translated it, maybe I can't tell? I mean, I tried to make it sound natural while sticking close to the Japanese...

But still, "an aberration"??? How is this chapter any worse than the others?!

...Anyway, I'm soooo looking forward to 59. *__* It should take my mind off the fact that it'll be more than two weeks before we see more of Toph in Avatar too. XD;

EDIT: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT! hagaren_manga has a thousand members now!! :DDD
