"Bread & Butter" Chapter 4

First a bit of business: Crimson Flower is Recruiting Seems that we lost some members after our long break. Boo… Therefore we need new blood. Crimson Flower is recruiting! We are in immediate need of experienced typesetters and redraws artists. All other position are open too. Please read our recruitment page before e-mailing me (Kuroneko003).  The link is here: http://crimson-flower.blogspot.com/p/recruitment.html ——————— I completely over thought what to call this bread. If anyone knows what the official translation of 三色パン is, let me know. Japan has way too many combinations of bread trios! My head was spinning! This is the last … Continue reading "Bread & Butter" Chapter 4

New Series "Chiisana O’Ningyo Biyori" (The Daily LIves of Tiny Mermaids) Chapter 1 by Umi Minami

We are solidly out of Horror-Shoujo Mangaland. And now onto some fun. This is another series from Hatsu Kiss. So far it’s been released in Japan every two months. The art style is kinda rough, but storytelling and humor are good. I especially like the personalities of the tiny mermaids. Anyhow, this is a gag-comedy series more or less, so expect some “stoopid”. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. And now onto the release!Links to “Chiisana O’Ningyo Hiyori” Chapter 1: (PDF) (Zip) Next up will be the rest of “Danshi Gurashi”! Please look forward to it!

"Bread & Butter" Chapter 3

I’ve been trying to get on a monthly release schedule for this series, but so far we’re still about 60-days. It’s a tough series in all ways, so I guess we’re doing the best we can. Oh well… In this chapter we learn some more about Hara’s past. Yuzuki gets on my nerves with her silly assumptions and then totally pisses me off by acting and speaking because of her silly assumptions. I found myself yelling at her while translating. Seriously, if you don’t know the situation, shut up. I can’t handle people who act like Yuzuki. Hopefully with this, … Continue reading "Bread & Butter" Chapter 3

New Josei Series: "Bread & Butter" Chapter 1

Under normal circumstances, we would not touch any series from Shueisha because of over-representation in scanlation and licensed content.  I’m taking a gamble that this series will not be licensed because the main characters are in their mid and late 30s. This is from the same mangaka who brought us “Sunadokei” (“The Hour Glass” or “Sand Chronicle”) and “Piece”. Haha! Hopefully this won’t go off the rails like “Sunadokei” did. I picked this series because I like Hara,  the main male character, and because bread. Do I really need any other justification beyond “bread-baking megane”? Anyhow, I hope you all … Continue reading New Josei Series: "Bread & Butter" Chapter 1

"Kerberos in the Silver Rain" Chapter 2

And now, for a change of pace, we have the next chapter “Kerberos in the Silver Rain”. This chapter has a brief adult moment, but I don’t think it’ll do any permanent damage given what’s shown on US television these days. In this chapter our highly skill commandos head into Forbidden Zone 03 to take on the infiltrators! This is one of the few action mangas that I can follow the action in the drawings. I love the drawing and sound effect style. Page 27 is especially nice :3. A big thanks goes out to Ichigo Stars for beautifully completing … Continue reading "Kerberos in the Silver Rain" Chapter 2

"Nanatsu no Kururi" Chapter 2

Updated 10/3/2013:  Page 10 stitch completed. For those archiving the series, you should re-download. Here is the second chapter of “Nanatsu no Kururi”.  It’s a short, but sweet chapter showcasing more of Sumire’s incredible kindness. I love how he doesn’t judge the subject of this story.  In a way it seems almost like a Biblical New Testament parable. If only people in real life were this lovely. And now onto the release!Links to “Nanatsu no Kururi”: (PDF) (Zip) Next up! I don’t know!  Hee!  Regardless we’re at least 3 days away from being able to release something.
