At last! Phew! Getting this first chapter together was quite a struggle! Every page had at lease one crazy redraw, so let’s give praise and thanks to Silver Lunar, Ichigo Stars, and Kumiko for working so hard to get this release done! Here’s a quick summary from the inner flap:
“Ordinary high school girl, Nanami Tokuko’s childhood friend,
Abe Maria, is the world’s last pureblood vampire!! For 10 years,
Tokuko has been encouraging him to become a part of human
society, and since then, Maria has come to love humans. As such,
Tokuko happily watches over Maria. This couple’s story is
the world’s most gentle vampire comedy. Introducing volume 1.”
Anyhow…without further yammering, here are the links:
Update 10/18/2011 — Small change to the translation on page 8. Maria want to become a vampire beloved by the community and not a community loving vampire.

I don’t know if we will be able to release this series on a monthly basis given the difficultly and the number of redraws in each chapter. We will do our best to release a chapter every 4 – 6 weeks. If you are a person with some serious Photoshop skillz (drawing and clone stamping) who could lend us a hand with this series, that would help a lot to keep us on track. Please use the contact link in the menu bar to contact me.
Please give us some feedback on the first chapter of the series. Also, if you like this series, please check out Shiina Dai’s one-shot, “World End Garden“. This is my favorite one-shot of all the one-shots I’ve translated and read.
Next up! On Bakeneko’s Lair we will debut “Servamp” and “Rex Fabula” within the next 7 – 10 days. The rest of the stuff planned for OS may be moved back to get us time for these releases, UNLESS the Ouran special chapter involves TamaHaru or Kyouya, in which case, I will cease all other activities to get that out ASAP.
