Surprise Josei Oneshot: "Hajimari wa Suna no Ichiya" ("It Started with an Evening on the Sand") by Kaoru Ichinose

It’s been a while since we’ve translated anything by Kaoru Ichinose.  This is a short josei oneshot that appeared in Harlequin Romance magazine. It’s too bad this short oneshot wasn’t a prologue for something larger, but I’ll take it! Hopefully we’ll see more from Ichinose-sensei soon.

And now onto the release!

Next up will be “Kanojo ni Naru Hi Annother” Chapter 3 and possibly 2 other romantic oneshots.

  1. I know it was already a while since this work was translated but is it possible for you to make a scanlation and translation of the continuation of the story? Because it definitely has another chapter.

    1. Yes, there’s an entire oneshot book. We have no plans to translate the book. The rest of the story is not something we at Crimson Flower want to release. We do not condone kidnap and then rape fantasy manga.

  2. Thanks so much for this Oneshot. I only recently read this because of Sabaku no Harem. I really like the chapter. It kind of had a feeling of not beeing finished and actually there is a second chapter to this (I saw some raws to this). Are you willing to do the second chapter as well. It would be so cool. I really like the guy, he gives off a mysteric aura and of course he is good looking ^^. Anyways thanks for your work =)

    1. Nope. The long version glamorizes kidnapping and rape and shows men getting away with it because they are rich and famous. Seeing as how that’s extremely messed up, I want nothing to do with it. I was extremely disappointed because I thought the short story was cute.

      1. Ah, I didn’t know that. Sad, I really liked the first chapter. I would have never guessed that the long version has those topics.
