Franken Fran chapter 57

We apologize for the delay.

It is with a heavy heart that I announce I have made the decision to step away from Fran. In reality, I probably should have done it quite a while ago, but I suppose I am getting stubborn in my old age of 25.

When Hox and I first started this project, I was a vital component. I was the only one doing scans, and without those, Hox couldn't translate. However, my well of usefulness dried up when he belted out all of the available tankouban material like a machine and we had to find someone to scan magazine raws for us.

That man was Vexed, to whom we are eternally grateful. Vexed probably could have done all the editing himself, and he could have done it much better, but as I said, I had become a bit stubborn. I'd developed an emotional attachment to the project and wanted to keep doing it.

When I really sit down and look at it, that emotional attachment of mine is what hindered our progress at times. While I still love Fran as a series, I have fallen out of love with it as a project. I'm willing to turn it over to a different (and probably far more capable) set of hands.

Fran will continue under Hox's watchful
EYES OF THE GODS, but I do not know who will be editing from hereon. If you head over to Hox's lovely place, I'm sure he'll keep you informed in the future.

Almost a year and a half, and 38 releases. A year and a half and 38 releases further than we were when we started. I'm okay with that.

Without further ado, Franken Fran 57:
