Junketsu + Kareshi Chp 5

Here is “Junketsu + Kareshi” Chapter 5!  The cliffhanger from chapter 4 is resolved very unexpectedly, and now it makes me wonder what direction this story is taking.  I like that I was surprised in this manner, though, because what happened took courage to do.  It’s definitely not cliched :). Links to “Junketsu + Kareshi” Chapter 5: (Zip) (PDF) — Retired On the matter of Aki — I feel bad that no matter how hard he tries, hypnotism does not work on Kana.  That said though, Aki really is quite possessive and generally sinister.  But the end of the chapter … Continue reading Junketsu + Kareshi Chp 5

Happy Halloween: Junketsu + Kareshi Chapter 4

I can’t believe we finished this before the end of Halloween night!  It was such a joy translating and editing the images in the chapter :).  I love handling beautiful drawings!  I couldn’t redraw the intro color 2-page spread, but I did redraw/extrapolate the gap between the pages of a very important scene.  All hail the mighty PhotoShop Pen Tool! Anyhow Happy Halloween!

Junketsu + Kareshi Chapter 3

Wow! There are two beautiful introductory pages in this chapter and this series will appear on the cover of Aria 12!  I can’t wait to see what Shouto-sensei comes up with!  This is a fun series so far :).  There is something I’d like to comment on about this chapter, but I’ll wait a couple of days for people to read it so I don’t spoil the chapter for everyone.

Junketsu + Kareshi (Pureblood + Boyfriend) Chp 2

Finally, a real vampire!  Hopefully, this series won’t go rambling off into the weeds and thicket like “Vampire Knight.”  I like the two main characters in this series and the artwork is a real pleasure to edit.  As I said in the teaser, I will continue translating this series.
