Don't ask for release dates
Recruiting Chinese Translator for EH and HP

Bad news

Update: Found a raw provider -currently waiting for chapters to be delivered and scanned. Thanks all for looking around and asking :) we really appreciate it.


I'm sorry to announce this guys, i tried, but it seems we won't have a raw provider from Taiwan who can supply 1/2 Prince every month. Meaning you may have to wait for the next chapter until June/ July when volume 8 comes out and we can order it online.

  1. Meh this isn't so bad. Can't till you guys translate 6 chapters in a row. Lol I got to be honest cause waiting for one chapter at a time while knowing how awesome the last chapter was, was killing me.

  3. T.T
    well it will be like back then
    when 1/2 prince wasn't so popular and a whole volume every 6 months
    when the complete volume arrived i didnd felt at all the 6 months ^^

  4. And no magic insulator either <_>

    I'll keep on checking back every now and then though so hopefully you're wrong about the 6months ¬_¬

    I know I hope you are.....

  9. mhm tough ;( I wishI could help but at most all I could do was if my old scanner would work, I could buy the volumes :( though would be hard to rip them out too...

    ReplyDelete
  10. We still luv you guys and appreciate all your hard work! Maybe now there will be fewer crazy anons, "next chappie? we wanna chapter!" Right?

    Thanx again OOS! ^_~

    ReplyDelete
  11. Aww. :( Well, with all luck, some nice person from Taiwan will step forward and help you guys out! Wish I could help in some way. :(

    Love you all and thanks so much for putting through with all your followers' insanity. ;)

  12. Thanks for all the hard work and for keeping everyone posted. This is a manhwa worth waiting for. ^_^ Looking forward to more in the future!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my god! Are you serious? Well thank you for let me read 1/2 prince all this time... Something i can't make anything about... but lots of thanks!! REALLY REALLY REALLY!!

  14. Maybe you can look for someone at the Animesuki forums. Those forums are well-populated. I see that there are some translators who live in Japan, so perhaps there is at least one person from their manga subforum who lives in Taiwan....

    Try posting a question at the forum about how to buy the magazine that 1/2 prince is in. Try posting in this thread:

    My favourite cheap manga seller doesn't carry 1/2 prince. *sigh* http://yasuimanga.com/catalog/

    But take a look at Yasui anyways. It's way cheaper than buying from JList.

  15. Awwwww maaaaaaaaannn... that sucks... :(

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have a friend there that gets the people i work with raws i will see if she will help out

    ReplyDelete
  17. Uhm.. how bout the magic insulator?
    also no raw provider?

    ReplyDelete
  18. this is going to be tough...
    but you guys did a great job anyway so just continue doing that ^__^
    we won't die from waiting a couple of months >.<

    ReplyDelete
  19. *In tears* I want to thank you all for being there for us. *sniff* And I also wish you good times while you wait for the manga to get out. I luv you guys. *Hug*

    ReplyDelete
  20. That's a shame. Well, it is reassuring to know that you guys have no intentions of giving this project up. However, just the thought having to wait so long makes me a little sick to my stomach. I'll manage somehow.

    Besides, in six months will be summer vacation, which means non-stop reading. To have something come out then will be very useful! Anyway, I hope everything works out. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well, you can always space out the3 release of chapter to one a month. That way fans won't have to go 6 months straight without a new chapter.

    Also, this scanlation was approved by the author, right? Maybe if you can get in contact with her she can work something out were you have access through her.

    ReplyDelete
  22. YES!! we shall hunt on Facebook!!! we shall spam every page, group and post until we find a good person in Taiwan!!

    **Otaku on a mission**

  23. Hi there!

    Throwing out some ideas.. sorry if you guys already thought of it..

    Perhaps you guys could contact the manga artist or Yu Wo directly and ask if they know anyone in Taiwan willing to help out?

    If asking them directly isn't feasible, maybe give a shout out in their facebook or blog for help? I know the manga artist has a facebook account.. and Yu Wo has a blog.

    I will try think of others ways to help..

  24. where the hell is that '7 degrees of separation' crap?! can we get a letter to the president of the US but can't find a raw provider from taiwan? ... maybe we could ask the president of the US to help :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. Bad news... But we will be waiting anyway :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like the idea of Obama getting us the raws. xD Who ever you are Anonymous person--you make me laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Uh, I hate to ask this but, what exactly happened to MI? I think I remember it being in the same magazine as HP, so does that mean we have to wait for it in the volumes?

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Thank you so much for not dropping this project despite the difficuties. You guys are great!^^

  29. *sniff*

    ReplyDelete
  34. Atleast I now know why it's taking so long for the next chapter to come up...

    6 months is so quite a while but well, I guess we don't have a choice. The manhwa is awesome enough. :D

    Thanks for all your work! I really appreciate it.

    ReplyDelete
  35. thanks for the heads up!!!

  36. I found this link to buying the magazine online.

    http://www.kingstone.com.tw/mag/book_Page.asp?KMCode=2071210063558I

    I don't really speak much chinese, though, so I am not sure about international shipping. Let me know if it helps by posting after this somewhere in response to my name.

    I was part of a teaching group based in taiwan. I don't live there any more but I might be able to convince some of my friends there to buy it for me. Please let me know the details of when it is published. I will try my best to find something.

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is bad >,< but anywhos. If we CAN actually find the raws how do we give em to you? just a thought

    PS: i live in HOng Kong. dont know if it makes any difference.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I know some people Chinese scanlators who "may" (note the word "may") allow you access to their raws but it may come down to you allowing their watermarks to remain or you adding watermarks yourselves which will disallow any other group from using their raws (which is the main reason they watermarked their raws in the first place).

    I'll check back here in a few days to get your reply before I approach them (well, it really is "us" as I am part of the said group).

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm Gonna DIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would like say thanks too, you guys don't know the meaning of "giving up".

    Thanks for all your work !

    ReplyDelete
  41. i tried looking for the magazine that 1/2 prince comes out in every month.. but I couldnt find it in the usual stores that I go to. sry.

    i might be able to get a subscription to the magazine, but that will take a while... maybe not until december. >_>""

    ReplyDelete
  42. Damn nice jobs you guys were doing. Keep it up when you get the raws. :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm going back to Taiwan at the end of May. I can try to find some then, but when does the volume come out? It might be too late then. :-/

    And yes, this is a late comment.

    ReplyDelete
  44. it's times like this that i wish i lived in taiwan....sorry i can't help but thanks for not giving up on 1/2 prince it's my favaorite. wishing you the best of luck with searching for your raw provider

    ReplyDelete
  45. have you tried using raw sites from china? There has to be few chinese raw sites that will be able to.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Fareki, hopefully while you are there in Taiwan, you might find a bookstore there that would sell the magazine on a subscription basis and mail it to the USA. Of course, you would need the details in advance from oddsquadscans as to how much they would pay or their mailing address, etc. Oh well. If a source isn't found, after the august tankoubon, it will be another 6 months wait again.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Man. I started reading this, and its awesome. Then this happens lol. First manhwa I've found I liked too. Oh well I shall light a candle and wait for the day more comes out. If I sound wierd I've been awake 35 hours... oops.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The is the name of the magazine that publishes 1/2 Prince? I have a friend who's abroad in Taiwan.

    ReplyDelete
  49. NOOOOOO!! T__T thats so sad.. 1/2 prince is the best and your scanlations are the best also.. Ill be waiting for the new scans.. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  50. mmmm I'll try to look for this manga here in shanghai ... I've started yesterday reading it and it's just come up with this problem :D OHHHH

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh well, you guys are working hard so I don't think anyone should get pissed about it. :p

    Thanks for the chapters thus far :3

    ReplyDelete
  52. I've read all the chapters from onemanga.com and i wanted to thank you for all the hard work you did, giving up the possibility to enjoy 1/2 Prince.
    I sincerely hope you'll find a way to share volume 8 with us soon.
    Thanks a lot!!

  53. thanks for your hard work , it is a sad thing no one lives in taiwan(i live in italy and there mangas come really late-.-)
    it is the same thing for magic insulator right?:( anyway guys even better of magic insulator read the novel of the sun knight(same author of prince) there are only 3 charapters for the moment but they are even more funny than 1/2 prince XD you can find them on halfprincerevolution

    ReplyDelete
  54. sad...
    is it 3 more months left to go lol..
    i want to know what happens next in 1/2 prince X|

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hm, I might be able to order something.. as help. I'm making a massive order to Taobao (asian ebay thing) but I'm not sure which magazine it features in.. so I can't search it up right now and check. :|

    But I think it'll be better to go for the 6 month wait.. cos I live in Australia and it costs quite a lot to ship heavy things to Australia..

    Unless all the fans chip in, i don't think its worth it for oddsquadscans.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Where do all of you live? I know that the Kinokuniya in LA, California stocks the magazine because I bought one from them last year when I visited LA. I was pretty ecstatic to find it. If you know someone who lives in LA, you could try asking them.

    The Kinokuniya around where I live don't stock the magazine. I don't know if they would allow me to subscribe to the magazine, but I could try if you still need help?

    I am also going to LA at the end of June, so I could take a look to see if the Kinokuniya there still stocks the magazine (they would only have the most recent issue though, so that means there'd be missing chapters, right?) If you need to contact me, feel free to leave me a comment at my journal.
