It’s been about two weeks since our last release. The slow pace is because we’ve begun working on projects for our 5th-year anniversary. I’m not sure whether we’ll begin on June 1st or start on June 26th, the actually day of our anniversary. Either way, it will be a month long event. Until then, our regular series will be a little slow. We need typesetters/letterers for the next 3 months. If you are an experience letterer and would like to help, please send me (Kuroneko003) an email via the link in the upper right hand corner of this blog. Also, … Continue reading "Baraou no Souretsu" Chapter 6
This was a particularly difficult chapter for me to translate because I’m very softhearted. This chapter is rather daring for shoujo, and I’m glad Kanno is not shying away from the reality of the time period. I feel at this point I should remind readers that this is a shoujo re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Henry VI and Richard III tetrad. The flow of the series follows Shakespeare’s play and European history, but the details of this story are different. Kanno says in her Twitter feed that she’s having fun with the original story, so please keep this in mind as you … Continue reading "Baraou no Souretsu" Chapter 5

Finally, wrapping up this month’s releases, we have the third chapter of “Baraou no Souretsu”. This series gets better and better to me. I love it! I’ve been reading up on the history of Richard III and the War of the Roses, so I’m excited to see how Kanno-sensei will reinterpret was little is know about that time. What I do know is that it was a brutal time. Lots of people, nobles and peasants, were killed, and there was treachery within the royal family and nobility. The story is still at a place before Shakespeare’s play about Richard III … Continue reading "Baraou no Souretsu" Chapter 3
Real life is dominating this week, so instead of three releases, I think we’ll only have this one. I’m cooking a small Thanksgiving for three this year and baking some mini-pies to give to folks. I’m also leaving the house to do fun things with my husband and friends… so whee! Manga will have to wait until next week when the Thanksgiving holiday is over. Honestly, I was itching to get out Lip Smoke and our new Toyota Yuu series because they are so good. I have a lot Lip Smoke feelings to express. Anyhow, here’s the second chapter of … Continue reading "Baraou no Souretsu" Chapter 2
Update 11/3/2013: Please download the latest version. There were a bunch of typos in the first version. We apologize for the errors. I happened to see this advertised while browsing the Princess magazine website last month. I thought to myself “my Dark Prince!”, and then I read the short preview. That was when I knew we had to take this series on as a project! This is Aya Kanno’s latest series, and it’s based on William Shakespeare’s play “Richard III”. So if you want spoilers, go read the play or watch one of the many versions of the play on … Continue reading New Series: "Baraou no Souretsu" ("The Rose King’s Funeral Procession") by Aya Kanno
