"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

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
