First off, major apologies for our long and unintentional hiatus! There were a number of factors involved, trust me. ;; I can't speak for my partner, but I have been incredibly busy IRL- finals, vacation, getting sick, working full-time, preparing for an upcoming convention... it's been crazy. Despite all that we were going to try our hardest to continue with comics for you guys, but a few weeks ago we got hit with another setback. Two of the artists we contacted responded to us asking us to not translate their comics; one of them was a very long comic that we'd just finished translating. We'd been doubting the legitimacy of what we do for a while, and the artists brought up several good points in explaining, very politely, why they did not want their comics translated.

tl;dr, We've been very busy and are no longer sure if we should continue doing what we do- if you have any suggestions or comments concerning this, please let us know. ♥

There is one bit of good news- those of you who have been following the PruSpa Impatience series, another has been released on pixiv! We're working on it right now, and hopefully there will be more to come.

Thank you for your understanding!

Is it... All right to translate but not actually scanlate it onto the comic itself? You can even link to the original on pixiv.

That is a possibility- I will be discussing this more with my partner as soon as she returns from Japan. ^^

I agree with Pinaki. If the objection was to scanlating the comics, then that's their wish but maybe just a translation of the text would be okay.
I would say that you do a good thing, linking to the original, providing credit, and contacting the artists.

And the Impatience series has been very cute and I'm excited to see the new strip! Thank you!

Ah, I understand that real life is important and busy
I hope all of you are alright and doing fine :>
I understand that some pixiv authors might not want their comics to be scanlated, but I hope by only providing the translation without editing the original will help. Because I think, the purpose of translating their comics is to share the love, interest and whatever they have in that piece of art.
All the best for your life and see you guys again soon :D
