Akagami no Shirayukihime has been Transferred to Fallen Syndicate

Well, that was quick! Yes, we are transferring "Akagami no Shirayukihime" to our friends at Fallen Syndicate.  The transfer is immediate, meaning they will handle the release of chapters 35 - 37 using our translations and high quality raws.  After that, we will have no further involvement in the series. As for Akidzuki Sorata's future one-shots, they will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We do know there are other groups who like Sorata-sensei's stories more than we do, so I think we would wait and see if those group translate the one-shots before taking any one of them on.

We realize we are moving on from our most popular series, but popularity and hits were never our goal, and honestly AnS popularity had become a burden. We felt we couldn't drop the series earlier because we feared the wrath of fandom.  Unfortunately, this led to resentment and hate towards a series.  As a scanlator doing this as a hobby for free using the money out of my own pocket, it's very stressful to dread working on a series.  This is supposed to be fun, and working on AnS hasn't been fun for me since the pirate arc ended. 

I want to thank everyone who's supported the series so far. I was hoping we'd get to the finish the series, but my hopes were dashed after AnS was transferred to Lala.  This is a double edged sword.  It's great that AnS can go on indefinitely, but at the same time it's horrible AnS can go on indefinitely. Unfortunately, for us in the US, the longer a series runs, the more unlikely it is the series will be licensed.  Also, series that run on indefinitely usually fizzle out rather than ending in a satisfying matter.  I hope AnS ends on a strong note.

Now that the transfer is set, please support Fallen Syndicate's efforts.  If you only visited Omari's Sister for AnS, we encourage you to try some of our other series, though I admit since AnS was never really our style, our other series and one-shots are nothing like it.  Haha!  Everyone else, please stick around for the future.  We have some great new series and one-shots waiting in the wings and we will be resuming some neglected series very soon ("The Ghost Apartment Manager" and "Zoo"!!!)
