Aw, that's a little sad to hear. I also found out about this series on /azu/, but I didn't really keep up with it. I think it had a release schedule even more sporadic than Yotsuba&!, but it was always in full color.
where can we find the complete run or at least most of it? preferably for full download? I got up to v5 I think
The group that worked on it all seems to be Roselia Scans. They have DDL links on their website.
