History

Game Over Or Continue was founded by Re-chan some time in 2001. At the beginning, it wasn’t a scanlation group like it is now. It was only a hobby of hers to let others enjoy BL manga, too. Along with Desperate-Love, GOOC was one of the first yaoi scanlation groups.

Slowly, but surely a group was formed with more and more people volunteering to help. They worked independently on various projects such as X by CLAMP, West End or Love Mode. Not long after, LadyNagisa joined the group and helped out as a co-admin and editor. Some might remember her as she was also very active in other BL scanlation groups such as Peccatore-Sanctuary and No Deadline. On April 3, 2003 a Yahoo!Group was formed as mailing list (and is still in use today). Since the foundation date is not known, this date was set to be the “birthday”. GOOC continued but, unfortunately, in its third year it had to struggle with many problems. Thus Re-chan handed over the group to Cleo and icassop on October 5, 2004 due to lack of time.

After contacting the old staff and recruiting new people, the group once again flourished with a great number of releases in an improved quality. While prior projects such as Bronze, West End and Ja-dou were continued and re-released, new manga were picked up. Along with Bronze Tori Maia’s BDSM manga Hoshi no Yakata became one of the favourites.

However, slowly staff members disappeared or quit again and GOOC grew smaller with time. Various problems also arose during recruitments, thus the group couldn’t find any more helping hands. Co-admin Cleo also quit and dedicated her time to the German scanlation group Akuma-Corporation. 2009 seemed to mark the end with only one release but in 2010 icassop acted as jake-of-all-trades to revive the group once again, albeit with only 2 members.

GOOC has been around for long but now, it only serves to complete the long-running series Bronze and Data, and a few shorter projects. With the end of these projects, the group will most likely close its doors forever.
