Don't ask for release dates

Half Prince Chapter 33

Hello people,
Those who waited patiently, here's 1/2 Prince Chapter 33 for you.


Explanation of the riddle:
AJ PLAU! -- the answer was AH OKAY! -- wasn't so hard was it. Put all your fingers on A J P L A U, move your fingers 1 button to the left (i wrote right before by mistake) except A since the thing beside it is Caps lock.

c34 will be delayed.Obviously because two very stupid people thought it was smart to spread the riddle answer and the file without the actual password itself (i wouldn't have minded if the password was still on). The delay, i is 20 days... so either I'm lying or I'm really mean. Just hope that I'm lying. Yep I am, it'll be out in 5 days... i didn't make it very clear for idiots. That is the penalty i guess.
On a side note, as you can see i updated the shout box to something that i can moderate... so you won't have to worry about us getting annoyed about people asking for chapter release dates. I will just hit them with a ban stick.No its not meant to scare anyone at all, its just for the team's own convenience.

Find chapter 33 in the usual place

  1. Now that's just being mean.

    There are some people who're doing this on purpose cause they think it's fun. We're victims here. It ain't black and white where there's you and the readers. There's the gray area where there's readers who can wait, readers who can wait and like to ruin it for some people, or readers who can't wait and ruined it for some people anyways.

    I hope you see the gray areas and think about it. It's not like the readers who follow the rules or your game can get together with the idiot readers and bonk them on the head and tell them to "Stop doing that" and send them to the time out corner.

  2. In Prince Revolution they released the first part of Volume 2 Chapter 3. The part when Prince says all those terrible torture methods he was planing on doing to the other team.

    So fitting that it was released since that's how I feel right now.
    ==============================
    Although I get the feeling if those two apoligized to Odd Squad and to the rest of us for delaying the chapter for 20 days then I bet Supreme Commander would be nice enough to reduce the delay a little.

  3. Oh I am so angery who ever did this but I ain't going to waste my efforts to hunt him/her down and make 'em pay.
    I understand the punishment OSS, I still love ya all♥

  4. 20 days? While holding 25 hostage. *pout* Oh well. This back up will dissipate soon enough with the release rate of the manga, but it is a little upsetting knowing it's there...
    hehe. You guys are just too mean. ;-)

    Nah, I get it. thanks for the chapter!

    ReplyDelete
  5. I agree with Usara. Although, I know even if all the innocent rebels, you guys probably won't change your mind. It just annoys people that's all. Anyway, don't want to piss off the volunteers here guys, or you do have to buy your own manga and translate them if you are not Chinese.

  7. man right now im laughing so hard because of what you said and the reason is because i think im gonna be really sad if i stop.dude this is a really mean joke. i agree its not just black and white with you and the readers. we cant control people actions. my jaw drop when i saw you sad waiting for another 20 days.please release it in your regular 5 day rule

    ReplyDelete
  8. 20 days? Really? Not cool man.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Honestly, how is 2 days of waiting difficult ?
    I didn't get the riddle, but was paitent enough to wait for the official release. The ones who published the answer, have issues called "can't keep a secretisms".
    Patience is a virture!

    ReplyDelete
  10. well it is your scanlation. so it is up to you when to release. In life there always be people that went against the rule. Keep doing this you will lose support from those who patiently wait.

    ReplyDelete
  11. 'That's mean.'

    That was my initial reaction. I can't believe that those few people jeopardized the release date and didn't follow the rules but I still think it's really harsh for those who didn't do anything to also have to wait for 20 days. Sorry, just my two cents.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have to agree with Usara's statement. Each chapter isn't easy work, I know, but punishing the entirety of your readers seems a little unreasonable [Not to mention that the wording itself was rather harsh regardless of who you might've intended to direct to].

    Anywho, thanks for your hard work. I'm looking forward to sitting down and reading chapter 33.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yo, H-K here.

    Let me say first off, I didn't post it to troll or get on your nerves. Some people wanted the chapter so I posted a LINK so they could download it. It's not about waiting or 'holding it hostage' (should I have PM'ed it instead? would that have been better?).

    It's as Usara said, now you guys are just being mean.

    Like I mentioned time again, I work for a scanlation group. I'm in charge of it, I know how fans get. What you guys are doing is just so overboard.

    But yeah, whatever continue calling your fans retards and idiots. There are better ways to deal with all of this, and you have just been so off base. And really, if you think this is all about 'waiting 20 hours' then you are even more off base.

    ReplyDelete
  14. SOOOO HAPPY TO READ CH33!!!! and i will totally hunt down and kill the stupid people ruining this for us... perhaps heads on sticks will scare other 1/2 prince ruiners away.... or is that too drastic?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't even know what you're talking about (I guess I missed something big X-X) but thank you for 33.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 20 more days .. :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, the riddle wasn't hard but it is pretty much like in a school there may be 2000 students but all it takes is just one student to murder, rob and steal to tarnish the reputation of the entire school.

    Anyway, it's a pity about the wait but if the scanlators want to with-hold it, that is their decision. At least we don't have to pay to download like some scanlators do.

    Only disapppointment is that Aion's servers will be down till September where they will have OB till near launch.

  18. sup, thanks for the release of the chapter, i had resolved the riddle as ah okay, but didnt noticed the !, and about that not releasing c34 in 20 days, how about reconsider?, the people who had uploaded c33 and said the answer in some website, they are morelikely less than 5 people... and you have to think that even after reading that you wont upload the file if you solved the riddle, it was almost 100% sure that some idiot will post the answer or uploead the file, you know that in this world lots of people give a shit about others and do what they like, at least you guys could release it within 10 days??

    ReplyDelete
  19. Always been an alternate mean to download c33? And here I decided not to go on a rampage hunting for it despite having figured it out myself... Way to confront me with that I should have been a jackass. Ahwell.

    ReplyDelete
  20. nah Micheal the alternative mean was also the one with the password. Just that i took it off the blog away from people who never bother to read anything. (try highlighting the previous post)

    And to the angry mob, -- 2 days... is not much at all. I would have been happy to just release it on the 18th like I intended. People bitch too much, and think they are doing a great service to others by ruining it for the rest. well anyways. So we are conveying our annoyance to you.

    ReplyDelete
  21. 20 days?....thats kinda goin overboard....

    ReplyDelete
  22. 20 days? rofl Hahahahahaha! I love your humor ^^ and if you ask me good call! I hope in 20 days we get 3~6 chapters released at once ^^ that would be great.

    p.s. thx for the work OSS

    ReplyDelete
  23. Thanks for chapter 33...^_^

    I still don't get how you get "Ah okay" from "Aj plau" ^^'(maybe cause my keyboard was modified by me with 6 language <_<")

    Bha~How unfortunate it is for you to hold the release~ :,(

    Prince-Sama~~~! and some *Kyaa*.. Lol.

    ReplyDelete
  24. 20 days??!!
    -dies in the corner-

    P.S. thanks for the release.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really don't mind that you'd hold the release like that. You guys are doing all the work and all we have to do is wait. We're lucky to be getting it at all. So thank you, OSS! C:

    ReplyDelete
  26. ...Thank you for scanlating 1/2 Prince. I don't mind waiting I'm grateful enough that you're even releasing it.

    ReplyDelete
  27. AH OKAY! I didn't get that riddle at all XD. I was trying like AH PLAY! and stuff... I thought it was only one letter per word... I think I was going so insane trying to get it because it was RIGHT THERE. I can wait the 20 days, time flies doncha know~~~~

    With regard to the restrictions and punishments... they don't work X( Sorry to say. I've been on different scanlation teams and have been a dedicated leecher for a little more than 10 years and I've seen all the different ways teams try to control their releases. Generally if something's popular enough, you won't be able to control its distribution - no matter what restrictions you try to put on it. If you keep trying, it just leads to the staff getting more and more upset and the team eventually disbanding. I'm not saying you're wrong to try to restrict the distribution, I'm saying there's always going to be at least one person who's going to pass it out wherever they can and when you punish everyone because of it, that person is going to feel even more justified to distribute against the rules the next time.

    Good luck though!!! (I hope this team at least lasts until the end of 1/2 Prince XD)

  28. i still don't get it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Aww the delay...
    I was hoping to read a couple more chapters before school starts, but I guess not.
    I hope the OSS team would reconsider the days of delay and give some of us patient readers a break. I know you guys works your butts off translating and etc. But is it necesary to take all the readers down, just because 2 or 3 people spoiled it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm very grateful that you translate 1/2 prince and understand that it's a lot of work but holding back the chapter because of two people who see fun in tormenting other readers is just mean.

    Btw. not so long ago you wrote: "We have chapter 33 and 34 in our hands yes, no joke. So second we finish chapter 29-32...you'll have a super fast instant release of 33 and 34". I looked it up in older posts..

    ReplyDelete
  31. Epic Fail...


    The only people you are punishing are the ones who followed the rules, in effect encouraging those who did not follow the rules.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Don't really get what all the drama is about. I don't mind waiting (2 days or 20 days don't really make a difference when the alternative is not getting to read it at all) and they ARE doing voluntary work.

    All that aside, thanks guys for all your great work and will patiently wait for the next release whenever it may be ^______________^

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hmm... i guessed wrong. i thought it was AH OKAY! lol. By the way, holding the chapter 34 hostage is pretty mean. what about the fans who did the right thing and waited!?
    It's like being blamned for something you can't control - like being deaf. Which i am.

    Yeah the riddle was kinda cool IF you had left the mediafire with password still on. I couldn't try my guess at all....

    ReplyDelete
  34. Noobzilla: I figured out the password rather easily when I just read the hints at 1 am. Took me a total of 20 seconds including reading time.

    Chapter 35 is a new volume ain't it?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Mrm... Well, the answer already was posted, so I guess I can answer how it goes.

    Pwn is a typo of Own, where instead of the letter O, the letter right of it was done, which was a P. So Aj Plau! should become probably Aj Olau... Then let's check the others, the l is right of the k... So Okau... Hey, y-u, so okay! What's left of the j... an h, Ah okay!

    Xity was of course a hint as well, which would have complicated matters since there the typo was to the left. In the riddle itself, only typos to the right were made.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I will patiently wait for the next chapter, even if i want it now^^

    I really hope that you will nerver be annoyed by thoses guys again.

    Anyway, thanks for working on 1/2 prince^^ I love you all

    ReplyDelete
  37. Twenty days... hm, it's going to be very long ^^' but I guess it can't be helped. I'll just have to be patient and wait like the others. Though I'm really angry at those who didn't respect the rules...

    Anyways, thanks for the release ! And when I saw the answer of the riddle, I felt so stupid for not understanding xD
    Thank you again, and keep your hard work =)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh i get it now. Thanks for explaining it Michael.

    ReplyDelete
  39. i love you guys for releasing it so early, i'm able to read it before going to school T.T thx a lot, hope you really are lying about those 20 days

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks for the release. I thought that the riddle was difficult but I had fun trying to crack it. Anyway you guys are the best keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  41. 20 dayS?! I hope you're lying..

    School will start soon. I hope I can still read the manga even with all the homework and stuff. ~sigh~

    Anyway,
    thanks for the release.
    And the delay is expected since idiots ruined the bonus chapter riddle game..

    Keep Up The GooD WoRK! &
    HaVE FuN!!

  42. Thanks for the release. The riddle was really difficult but it was fun trying to solve it. Anyway you guys are awesome keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. ...... i guess 20 days isnt that bad....... I waited almost 3 months for Chapter 29 why not just wait and leave it be cuz its better then them discontinuing it..... Its just 20 days or less.....

    ReplyDelete
  44. 20 days? isn't too sort?, why don't you hold 1 year or drop it, i think other scanlation will be glad too continued it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. its really not all that bad when you think about it.... we got many more chapters than usual in a month so we will only have 1 chapter a month for a while anyways... this just means that if people can control themselves we get 2 chapters next month instead of 1...

    ReplyDelete
  46. Ahhhhhh.........20 days is a long time......but I guess that only means I won't be anticipating to read "1/2 Prince" during school.....I guess this is good. X)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow, you guy who are complaining are way too lame. I mean I am totally completely obsessed with this manhua, and I'm not even phased. Well not too much. But hey, If you keep complaining about a possible release date it makes it so much sweeter for the squad to keep the date. Yes it sucks, yes it's painful to wait, but are you really so idiotic as to blame the publishers for our mistakes. We all attributed to this scandal. How many people were begging for hints? Or badgering others for the answer? How many people sat behind their screens eagerly waiting for some idiot to slip up so they could snatch up the next chapter before the majority? So don't complain about our greed. Don't deny that you may have did these things, and be very gracious to the scanalators for even thinking that we deserve a chance to redeem ourselves and continuing to work hard for us. Stop threatening to maim and kill the people who slipped, we all knew it would happen, it's our fault for making it happen sooner.

    Thanks for uploading the chapter; I hope that these complaints don't discourage your unwavering willpower. I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Well, of to re-read the manhua again!

    ReplyDelete
  48. wow alot have written about this...
    anoying...

    sry side note.

    well it is our own fault for asking the question in the first place im not going to snitch anybody out cause i can't dont know who or when the pass was screwed up.

    all we can do is give the ones who did a kick a**

    ReplyDelete
  49. Nice sense of humor xD I guess that internet reading habits can help out sometimes... Um, thanks for the chapter release! It was great! I look forward to the next release :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. 20 days!?!?! HAHAHAAAHHHHAAHAHAHAAAHHHAHAAHAHAHAAHHHAAAHAHHAH HAHAAHAHHAHAHAHAHA AHHAA A HAHA AHHAAHAHHAAHAHAH AHAHA HA...... *CRIES AND DIES*

    ReplyDelete
  51. ...Anyway...

    Thank you for releasing chapter 33!! XD

    I'd also like to apologize--in behalf of all the people who are a bit impatient for the next chapter (including me, I'm sorry to say T-T)--to the awesome OSS team.

    Even though we--the fans--have to endure to our best ability very painfully for the next 20 DAYS (T^T) for chapter 34, we still love you guys. <3

    We're cheering you on!! GO ODD SQUAD SCANLATIONS!! Good luck, we await the next chapter release!! ^^ Do your best!! X3

    ReplyDelete
  52. You know... your apology doesn't mean anything if you remain anonymous.

    At the very least OSS releases more often than others. If I waited a year for some certain releases, I can wait for this. I already re-read the series at least 15x. I can do another 15x.

    ReplyDelete
  53. lol, I've only read it a a few times---like five XD

    But I know that OSS is really awesome and thats why everyone loves them ^^

    ReplyDelete
  54. it's okay the delay xP
    they did what was against of the rules, and this is the penalty. Maybe 20 days it's too much, but think that we will have to wait 4 months more for the next volume to be release xD
    just try to look at the positive side~

    ReplyDelete
  55. Well I'll just wait for it when it comes!

    Yea, I completely agree with one of the anonymouses up there. The way some of you guys complain is so annoying. It's like repeating "you meanie *pout*" and "zomg I'm such a goodie" a zillion times

    ReplyDelete
  56. I just saw the hidden text. Aww. You guys are too soft on us. ^_^
    <333

    ReplyDelete
  57. actually i like where prince's story is left off and like wait a bit more on it. cus waiting a bit longer means u guys get to finish the rest of the releases more and they'll come like super quickly after another

    -->thereby leading to a no cliffhanging wait *w* = happy fans.

    Besides delays like that is normal, when subbers/translators get a lot of whiney ppl the only way to diminish them is delaying the releases...besides 1/2 prince was dropped up til oddsquad took it back up :P

    ReplyDelete
  58. As long you still want to scan it.. I'll wait it patiently..

    GO ODDSQUADSCANS!

  61. ah screw the delay as long as OSS keeps working on the 1/2 Ouji series to the end it's fine by me!~
    [though im still hoping u guys are really bluffing 'bout teh 20 days thing]

  62. Waow, 10 years? If you start learning chinese language now, I'm sure in 2015, you will be excellent in chinese langauage.

  63. Cool guys. Just 20 days and at the end it is will be release. In that the periode, we can read others good manga will be going release.

    Thank you for all the scans so far

  66. ahhhh I had the riddle right... I just didn't have the caps and the exclamation point... D:

  68. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA Oh man, that made me laugh. Your so mean N00bZilla. Yes, I saw it. But I'll keep quiet.

  69. "Don't deny that you may have did these things" I will. Don't speak for others.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I understand that people would be disappointed by a delay and feel that it's unfair. However,it's also disappointing when you put in a lot of work into a release and then the fun gets spoiled.
    There are a lot of scanlators who can't release a chapter of a project every week or so. And there are scanlators that set a monthly release schedule. That's normal. I think those who are angry have been spoiled. It's just a chapter; calm down...and maybe then you'll see the message. <.<

    Thanks to OSS for your work.

    ReplyDelete
  71. lol i'm an idiot, i just noticed the truth behind your words about delaying it 20 days, well i will wait like a good boy until you release

  72. I was about to unleash a barrage of insults and frustrated complaints, but haha, nvm. I got the hidden message ;D
