Akagami no Shirayukihime has been Transferred to Fallen Syndicate

Well, that was quick! Yes, we are transferring “Akagami no Shirayukihime” to our friends at Fallen Syndicate.  The transfer is immediate, meaning they will handle the release of chapters 35 – 37 using our translations and high quality raws.  After that, we will have no further involvement in the series. As for Akidzuki Sorata’s future one-shots, they will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We do know there are other groups who like Sorata-sensei’s stories more than we do, so I think we would wait and see if those group translate the one-shots before taking any one of them on. … Continue reading Akagami no Shirayukihime has been Transferred to Fallen Syndicate

Akagami no Shirayuki Volume 8 Release Date Announced

“Akagami no Shirayukihime” Volume 8 will released in Japan on September 5. It should reach me by September 7th. I expect soon after to release chapter 35. We have been translating from the magazines such that when the tankoubon arrives we can deliver the outstanding high quality chapters quickly. Thank you all for your patience and understanding. It’s just that I want to do right by Akiduki Sorata’s gorgeous artwork. Continue reading Akagami no Shirayuki Volume 8 Release Date Announced

We are Going on Hiatus with "Akagami no Shirayukihime"

Update:  For now it appears that Mangafox is cooperating with our takedown request.  We’ll see how long that lasts….———————————- I’m sorry, but the frustration level is too high right now for AnS.  Since the series moved to Lala magazine, the chapter image quality has ranged from crap to beautiful.  Chapter 35 is the worst looking chapter EVER and I can’t do anything “magical” to fix it, so it would hurt my pride to release crap because it does no justice to the original work and our group.  Also, I’m tired of Mangafox and the stupid people who think they are … Continue reading We are Going on Hiatus with "Akagami no Shirayukihime"

"Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chp 34

I’d love to see a clean version of this drawing.  It’s too bad when the tankoubon is published, the clean image will be in black-and-white instead of color.  Maybe one day Akidzuki-sensei will bless us with an illustration book so we can see clean versions of the color title pages. This chapter sets the premise for the present story arc.  Honestly, the medical/pharma stuff doesn’t interest me. Rather, I’m more interested in whether Ms. Naki is Izana’s love interest.  Haha!  I guess I just want to see what kind of woman Izana ends up with.  I’m rather impatient and I … Continue reading "Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chp 34

"Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 33

First of all, a little bit of business.  Viz’s Shojo Beat is accepting licensing suggestions on Twitter.  AnS came up quite a few times.  I would love it if the momentum were stepped up so this series can’t be ignored and Akidzuki Sorata can get some money from us (more than just the fraction of us who buy the tankoubon).  So if you don’t mind, please Tweet to @Shojobeat about AnS.  Let’s make a big push to get this series licensed! I did what I could with this chapter in terms of image editing.  The pages look okay until page … Continue reading "Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 33

"Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 32

I’m delirious, so if what I write makes no sense, come back in a couple of days and I will have fixed it. This is such a cute title page.  Obi in a tie looks strangely modern.  Before I forget, you may want to buy a copy of Lala 5 for some sweet AnS freebies (Pen pouch and Clear Bookmarks).  I’ve got my copy on order from Sanseido Bookstore :).This chapter is very cute.  We learn a little about Obi, though I was hoping for more, but I’ll take what I can get.  Just as a translator’s note, I took … Continue reading "Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 32
