Stalled series that should be completed?

What series that have stalled, do you think should be completed? This isn't a ranting thread, but more of one to draw interest in series that are either being subbed inexhorbinately slow, or have been stopped altogether. I'm doing this more as a way to show that there is indeed interest in these series and to possibly encourage the fansub groups (who I'm sure feel greatly unapreciated) who were working on them to either finish them, or for someone else to step into the gap and take over the subbing of these series. You can also show apreciation to the groups who were subbing them to let them know how much you've enjoyed their work so far and how you'd like to see them complete their work.

Three series come to mind for me.

Tenshi na konamaiki (not stalled, but definately being subbed very slowly)
Daa! Daa! Daa!
Majoujin Guru Guru (stalled at the beginning of april)

There's one other that's stalled too that I would have loved to see taken to the end, but since it's licenced, I guess that's kinda asking a lot. (why did they have to licence Gokusen so soon!! Wah!!)

This is not a thread to rant, but one to basically list which series you'd like to see completed that have stalled. Stalled series are ones that are uncompleted and have stopped being subbed for at least 6 week or greater. Preferablly greater. I'd love to be able to use this thread to show the fansub groups that we still love these series and would like to see them taken to completion either by the original group, or if they can't do it, then by a new group who could take over the series from the last subbed episode.

(PS: OVA's with long periods between release dates don't count)

Not a rant? More like bitching and whining. ;p

Find me a very experience translator and TnK will be finished in no time.

If you so badly want to see those series completed, how bout finding ppl to help those groups finish those series instead of suggesting "vulture" groups to complete them.

I don't really follow TnK. But I do know that its one of the most popular A-E projects so you guys must get a lot of uncalled for demands from people. I find it odd though that you guys have problems finding experienced translators. From what I've read by another "vulture" group called inspiration studios, they have agreed to stop translating this project because you guys have acquired new translators and will be releasing episodes much quicker.

http://www.freewebs.com/inspirationstudios/

If you guys actually lack experienced translators, it could have been better if you would work with them instead on finishing the series.

Gashu is by no means stalled. It's been 2 weeks since the last release, but that's just a speed bump, progress is being made. Subbed gash is only far behind what's airing because early eps were released very slowly. It's been coming out at decent pace for the last 3-4 months though.

Also, as Asura said, I really hope this thread doesn't encourage "vulture" groups. Probably about 99% of "stalled" projects have people in the groups that started them trying their best to get the projects going and would love to have extra help to make it happen. Of course, most of the time the problem is finding translators, and most people can't help with that

So, when is it safe to assume a series has been abandoned?

Seconded. We can't help being slow sometimes. More staff usually helps.
