Current Recruitment is for J to E Translators and Redraw Artists

Thanks to everyone’s who has written to me about wanting to join the group. We are currently staffed to capacity in all areas, however, I would like to have another skilled Japanese to English translator to help with translation QC in order to take some of the pressure off Jade and myself. We are looking for someone who is comfortable without furigana and who knows some current Japanese slang speech. Though we are currently fully staffed, we are also always looking for skilled redraw artists in case a redraw heavy project comes our way. Applicants for both positions will be … Continue reading Current Recruitment is for J to E Translators and Redraw Artists

Thinking about this Year’s Halloween Oneshot Party

I’m not gonna lie; last year’s Halloween oneshot party was a complete flop. Either the stories were too lame or too scary and gorey.  The “Friend Doll” anthology from Betsufure and “Urban Legends” anthology from Mystery Bonita stories were too lame and the zombie oneshots from the Lala family of magazines fell under too gory.  I promise not to do anymore stories from shoujo “horror” anthologies. I thought the campiness would be fun, but the rest of the group didn’t agree and neither did the readers. However, I cannot resist zombie shoujo, so if some pop up again, I will … Continue reading Thinking about this Year’s Halloween Oneshot Party

We will not be Translating Kaoru Ichinose’s Ohzora Works

After evaluating what’s in my stash, I’ve decided that we will not be working on any of Kaoru Ichinose’s untranslated works that are out there at present. This has been at the back of my mind for a long time, which is why I have been dragging my feet on these projects. If there are works in the future that interest us, we will take them on, however Ichinose’s current Ohzora works are not a good fit for our group. Continue reading We will not be Translating Kaoru Ichinose’s Ohzora Works

Another Family Health Emergency — breaking until April 1st

There’s another health emergency in my family. I will be out of town and in a rural area that most likely will not have cellular data for me to access, so I couldn’t upload CF projects if I wanted to. I will, however, use the two weeks to read as much unlicensed manga as I can and write up some reviews when I get back. Barring another of the issues, we’ll start releasing soon after I get back in April. I will make an effort to get the “Sabaku no Harem” Lala Special oneshot out this week before I leave. … Continue reading Another Family Health Emergency — breaking until April 1st

Check out my Lovely Manga Blog

As some of you know, I transformed one of my old blogs into a new shoujo and josei manga focused (non-scanlation) blog. It’s called “Lovely Manga“. The URL is http://lovelymangas.com/ So far I’ve been posting reviews for both licensed and unlicensed manga, writing my perspective on Crimson Flower releases, posting manga related news and commentary, and posting highlights from the magazines I get. Within the magazine highlight postings, sometimes I post PDFs of the summary Tweets of the oneshots and series I read in the magazines, but do not scanlate.  I’m thinking about writing separate formal summaries for the series … Continue reading Check out my Lovely Manga Blog
