Grand Blue was licensed in English back in September and will have both digital and physical versions up for sale. Many staff members decided to not want to work on it anymore, so because of this we’re dropping the series instead of finding replacements for most of the jobs. We’d rather not insult some of our staff’s decisions on top of going through a tedious and frankly haphazard recreation of the original team. While we sadly won’t be releasing any more chapters of Grand Blue, we’re taking this opportunity to pick up several new titles that we’re extremely excited to release.
Fallen Angels, another great group we’re friends with will be picking up the series starting the November issue. We suggest checking out their scanlations of future chapters since they’re phenomenal with everything else they do. They’ll be using the same scans we used, most of the fonts we used, and also have a member who’s part of both Helvetica and Fallen Angels help keep things organized. Because of this, the quality you’ve grown accustomed to should be incredibly similar, following the important idea that the transition between two scanlation groups should be as smooth as possible so the reading experience isn’t damaged in any way.
Even with them picking up the series, we still suggest to purchase the official releases if possible. You can purchase both volumes 1 and 2 currently from any online ebook store such as Amazon, iTunes, Kobo, and Comixology. Physical editions of Grand Blue will be available summer 2018.
