John Smith(Epictoaster360R) & Zan12071986
12 episodes & OVA (COMPLETED)
Sept 2, 2010 - May 17, 2013
HOTDAbridged was originally founded by MrWorldTeh and TheGamerNet, and later got a volunteered editor Zan12071986 to help them with the editing. When the casting was completed and it was time to start the scripting and abridging progress. Both MrWorldTeh and TheGamerNet had but almost less to no effort in making the script nor effort in doing the series in general and almost forgeting about it.
Near the end when the cast was about to give up on this series, it was the volunteered editor Zan that took it upon himself to script, keep the group together and brought the series to life.
With no help from MrWorldTeh and TheGamerNet, Zan left them out of the project after finishing the first episode. Although they were the ones that started the idea, but it was the efforts of Zan and his cast that made it all happen.
