Oneshot: "Saite no Kimi wo Wasurenai" (You’re the Worst, but I won’t Forget you) by Yuu Mitsuha

As one of the proofreaders pointed out, it’s been a long time since we’ve released a oneshot. Yep! It’s been since February. We’ve been pushing really hard to catch up on our top priority monthly series, and now that we’ve … Continue reading Oneshot: "Saite no Kimi wo Wasurenai" (You’re the Worst, but I won’t Forget you) by Yuu Mitsuha

One-Shot: "See You Again" by Junko Ike

I’m starting to notice a running theme in these Shiro Lala one-shots.  I imagine it’s because in Japanese culture white is associated with death, which is an opposite notion for Westerners.  If you’re still recovering from “Souai Metaphysica”, then perhaps you ought to wait a day or two before reading this one-shot.  It’s a short one-shot, but it packs a lot of punch for 16 pages.  I think this one-shot ends on a better note than “Souai”, but still…sigh…haha!  Unfortunately, the next chapter of AnS is not gonna pull us out of the sorrow hole :(.  But don’t worry, the … Continue reading One-Shot: "See You Again" by Junko Ike

One-Shot: "Souai Metaphysica" ("Mutual Love Metaphysica") by Mikase Hayashi

You might want to get out a couple of tissues for this one-shot. I had a hard time completing the translation because I started bawling halfway through.  I’m a sucker for stories about unrequited love and for some reason the whole notion makes me incredibly sad.  This is a beautiful one-shot, and I hope you all enjoy it.  We will release Hayashi-sensei’s other one-shot from Kuro Lala within the month, so look out for it. Onto the link!Link to “Souai Metaphysica”: (PDF) Tomorrow, a short one-shot will be released and followed most likely by AnS Chp 34.

One-Shot: "Saigo no Negai" ("The Last Prayer")

I wanted to release this New Year’s Eve as a cautionary tale about drunk driving, but alas, the Computer Gods interfered.  Anyhow…this is a really sweet story despite its shounen qualities.  I like the message about what parents will endure for the sake of their children.   Pay attention to Shun’s hand during the story.  It’s really neat how this repeated element ties everything together at the end.  On to the links! Links to “Saigo no Negai”: (Zip) (PDF) Next up will be “Fushigi no Maria-kun” Chp 4! Continue reading One-Shot: "Saigo no Negai" ("The Last Prayer")

Kuro Lala One-Shot: "Kachuu no Ou" ("The Flowering King")

Here is a one-shot from Yuki Kure (“La Corda Oro”).  This is very different from La Corda and her other one-shots.  I liked it a lot because it seemed more mature than her other works.  I really wish this was a two or three part mini-series because I would have liked to have seen more of the two main characters’ back story.  Oh well…Update:  12/12/2011:  Updated the title after some thought.  I think this captures the spirit of “kachuu” more. Anyhow…here are the links! Links to “Kachuu no Ou”: (Zip) (PDF) Next up!  Haha!  There are a few things close … Continue reading Kuro Lala One-Shot: "Kachuu no Ou" ("The Flowering King")
