We’re all unsure if this is a hoax or not because of the timing of it all. But this message came from Waryas’s friend yesterday:

Bonjour, Hello,
Je me permet de coller ceci a tous les amis de Waryas (Ya Mansure) a partir de son ordinateur:
C’est dans la matinee du 31 mars 2009 et dans un immense chagrin que
Waryas nous a quitter pour un monde meilleur.
La cause du deces est du a une hemoragie interne provoque par son accident de moto
ce week-end alors qu’il rentrait d’une soiree.
Veuillez passez la nouvelle a tous ses contacts, merci.
Que dieu vous garde.

A brief translation is Waryas has succumbed to injuries and passed away from internal hemorrhaging on March 31 2009 after a motorcycle accident while returning from a party on the weekend. Please pass on the news.

I really find this hard to believe, but if it’s true, he will be greatly missed. He’s one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, albeit only through the Internet. He was a proud man, but diligent and strong-willed. If you’ve played Gunz before and used the anti-crash hack, Waryas was the one who coded that. One of his proudest achievements. He’s done a lot for the fansubbing and Gunz community in his short life. He was only 20.

I’m quite lost for words, but for the rest of us, life must go on as it always had. I really do hope he’s playing a joke on us, but I have a feeling that this is real.

Thank you for everything, Waryas. RIP.

Hi guys. It may be April Fool’s, but the following is all serious stuff.

Firstly, we’d like to apologise about our overall inactivity and slowness. I don’t think there’s much we can do about that at the moment.

Since it’s now April, you’re all probably wondering what we’ll be doing this new spring season. Chances are, we’ll be subbing Hatsukoi Limited, which starts airing next Sunday on the 11th. It’s by the same mangaka as the one who did Ichigo 100%. The manga (Hatsukoi Limited) itself is not bad, I think, but hopefully the anime adaptation won’t turn out crap like it did with Ichigo 100%.

And for some serious news. It’s regarding our dear friend, Waryas. If you don’t know who he is, he’s the one who’s been seeding and distributing all m33w releases for like a year. The reason why you can download stuff from us is mostly because of him. I’m quite sure this isn’t a joke, but several days back, Waryas met with a terrible road accident and was injured pretty badly. I’d like to wish him the best. I believe he’s going to retire from fansubbing to concentrate on recovering and other more important things in life. Thank you for all you’ve done for us Waryas.
