Dual Release: Akagami no Shirayukihime Chp 31 and the February 2012 Omake

First, a shameless plug for Akidzuki Sorata!  There will be a dual release of “Akagami no Shirayukihime” volume 7 and the “Vahlia Bridegroom” one-shot compilation on March 5th.  Copies have been pre-ordered for those who have already sent requests to piggyback on my late February order.  Also, the extra copies I ordered have been reserved.  However, it’s not too late!  If you want your own copies of AnS Volume 7, “Vahlia’s Bridegroom”, and “Ao Rhapsodia” (the Akane Ogure one-shot compilation), I can piggy back your order onto my first order for the month of March (you will receive the books … Continue reading Dual Release: Akagami no Shirayukihime Chp 31 and the February 2012 Omake

"Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 30

First of all, please do not upload this to any of the manga aggregation websites.  There is no need to since it’s readily available here and I think you all know I don’t like manga aggregation websites. Secondly, for those who hate the water-color look, I’m sorry.  I didn’t have much of a choice but to edit the images this way because the the data was incomplete in the raw.  This is a way to “hide” the poor quality of the raw.  The last page is particular bad.  The data just wasn’t there for me to pull the trick off … Continue reading "Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 30

"Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 29

Before we get to the nitty-gritty of releasing this chapter, there are a few things that I feel I need to say. We are not dropping “Akagami no Shirayukihime”.  The past 3 chapters have been quite good and I personally want to go forward. If a group capable of maintaining the image quality and translation quality and the time dedication approaches us about taking over the series, we will gladly transfer the series so we can work on other things. I will make a greater effort to refrain from knee-jerk reactions in the future. The image quality for chapter 29 … Continue reading "Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 29

Akagami Update — Situation Resolved

Update:I have been contacted by the scanlator who did the Mangafox version and we are talking about having her help with AnS as a member of OS.  Hopefully, this will all work out. Anyhow…so here’s the plan moving forward.  We will make AnS an active project again.  We will release our own version of chapter 29.  I’m debating whether to do chapter 29 this month or skip it and move onto chapter 30 and swing back around to chapter 29 when the tankoubon comes out.  Anyhow, thank you are for your support.  Hopefully, we’ll be able to work things out such … Continue reading Akagami Update — Situation Resolved

"Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 28

I only got one proofread on this, but I wanted to put it out now before New’s Year activities sweep me away.  Hopefully, we caught all of the egregious typos.  I’ll update the file at a later time if more typos are discovered. I’d like to thank Amrai for taking on the difficult task of translating this chapter.  The Akidzuki Word Salad was horrifically bitter and full of tear inducing onions this time.  I’d also like to thank Kotomi for helping me beat the script into shape.  This chapter was a challenge all around. This is the last re-introduction chapter … Continue reading "Akagami no Shirayukihime" Chapter 28

Torn About AnS from the Magazine

Update: Thanks to everyone who thoughtfully responded right away.  Your love of AnS is clear and I hear it.  I think the majority of you understand the difficulty of working with a bad raw and that we as a group don’t want to do mediocre releases if there’s an alternative.  So…here’s what we’re going to do: Chapter 28 will be released as scheduled in December In place of releasing a mediocre Chapter 29 in January, we will release the extras from Volume 6. Chapter 29 will be done from the tankoubon as soon as we get it.  My hope is … Continue reading Torn About AnS from the Magazine

Please support Sorata-sensei by purchasing the book even if you don’t read Japanese.  Here are some purchasing options: Amazon JPYes AsiaHMV If you are timid, I can facilitate the purchase by piggybacking it onto my own purchases.  If you are interested in this option, send me a e-mail via the contact link at the top of this blog.
