We at Crimson Flower feel that we can no longer continue “Sabaku no Harem”. We are not staffed to do endless shoujo and the series is swamping all of our time (and sucking my energy) and preventing us from doing oneshots and other short series. I feel that it’s best to cut clean from the series so some other group can take it on if they want to. Also, it has gotten to the point that I dread the end of month, which is never good because it causes me to procrastinate.
Moving on, unshackled by “Sabaku” we’ve already begun work on completing “Koori no Joou” (The Ice Queen). The last two chapters will be released this week. We are also working on some oneshots. I feel the need to do some unconventional and gender-bender oneshots and short stories. After all, it’s what we’re known for. Needless to say, I’ve been very happy these past few days working on The Ice Queen and the oneshot “Bishonen”. Hopefully we’ll be a lot more productive and attract some new members. (We need letterers!) AND… once again, I will do my best to steer clear of series that could become endless. (Best to do that by only working on series that are complete in Japanese.)
I will write up detailed summaries of Sabaku chapter 25 and 26 (or to the end of the current arc) so you won’t be left hanging if the series doesn’t get picked up by another group quickly.
Thanks to all of you who have come along this far with us reading “Sabaku no Harem”. Hopefully the series will find a new home soon or, even better, get licensed in English.
