Earlier, before eating, we had also bought our fireworks, for Monday. I spent my time mostly during family night reading the manga IS. I knew thanks to the scanlator volume 2 and onward would all be on Haru, but I didn't actually mind, especially once I got to the high school part which makes up the majority of the story, since it became highly engaging and I loved the method, where they would slowly explore person by person how Haru influences the world, while never losing sight of Haru, and Haru's strengths and weaknesses as a person have always been prominently displayed.
I got about half-way through the series, going by chapter-count: volume 9, but chapter 37 is where I stopped, mostly because while it's a VERY good series, it actually was...a bit emotionally overwhelming for me to read that much at once. It...kind-of hit close to home, after all.
The first scanlator for the series (first 8 volumes) ended up sounding like a jerk, since they flat-out said the story of Haru was beginning to bore them, so they quit, but maybe thanks to the influence of Haru, I can't say that I actually hold anything against them. After all, at least they had the courtesy of explaining why they weren't going to continue. (Fortunately, someone else did.) Most manga that suffer from multiple (inconsistent) scanlators never bother to have the scanlators say why they aren't continuing and have someone else take their place, so being honest and saying they were stopping was nice to know.
Plus, it is a volunteer thing, presumably. I'm sure somewhere out there, someone offers money to scanlators, but if so, it's almost certainly the exception to the general rule: scanlations aren't done for money or anything like that. They're done for enjoyment. So, if they're no longer enjoying their work which they are doing for free, I understand not wanting it.
Still...needless to say, I was very relieved when I saw that someone did in fact continue after that scanlator left, since I want more, as soon as I can handle it. Maybe tomorrow?
