We are Dropping “Sabaku no Harem”

We at Crimson Flower feel that we can no longer continue “Sabaku no Harem”. We are not staffed to do endless shoujo and the series is swamping all of our time (and sucking my energy) and preventing us from doing oneshots and other short series. I feel that it’s best to cut clean from the series so some other group can take it on if they want to.  Also, it has gotten to the point that I dread the end of month, which is never good because it causes me to procrastinate. Moving on, unshackled by “Sabaku” we’ve already begun … Continue reading We are Dropping “Sabaku no Harem”

Crimson Flower’s Plans for 2014

Now that we’ve said what we aren’t going to do, let’s get on to what we are going to do.  We are only adding one new monthly series.  Everything else added will be bi-monthly or quarterly. We are limiting the number of monthly series so we can do more oneshots and short series.  So here it goes: Monthly Series “Baraou no Souretsu” “Kisu ni Renzoku” “P + JK” The difficulty of scanlating this series outweighs the goodness. Hopefully since it’s popular in Japan it’ll get licensed here. It’s very tame in terms of age-gap series, so I don’t see why … Continue reading Crimson Flower’s Plans for 2014

2014 Plans at Crimson Flower — We Are Dropping Some Series

I don’t like to drop series, but I feel I should announce what we are formally dropping to give the team and the readers some clarity and closure. We do not drop series lightly. I usually agonize for months before dropping a series.  We are dropping these series mainly because there isn’t enough momentum within the group to keep the series going and there is a strong desire within the group to do more oneshots and one volume series, and therefore I need to free up the schedule. We are dropping: “Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama” — We are dropping … Continue reading 2014 Plans at Crimson Flower — We Are Dropping Some Series

Not Happening New Project Announcement: "Boukyaku no Shirushi to Hime"

Sorry folks. Basically the effort to do this short series fell apart.  It’s too cute (in a very juvenile sense) and the amount of effort needed to put into can’t be justified in the face of other projects. We’re very burnt out on difficult redraws. Hopefully a shoujo group that skews towards a younger audience will pick this series up. If you are interested, a one person “group” translated chapter 1. No worries though, we’ve got “Megane no Incubus” and “Kurogane Girl” coming at you very soon :). We’re also resuming “Wild Wing” and we’ve got two short Mika Kajiyama … Continue reading Not Happening New Project Announcement: "Boukyaku no Shirushi to Hime"

Akagami no Shirayukihime has been Transferred to Fallen Syndicate

Well, that was quick! Yes, we are transferring “Akagami no Shirayukihime” to our friends at Fallen Syndicate.  The transfer is immediate, meaning they will handle the release of chapters 35 – 37 using our translations and high quality raws.  After that, we will have no further involvement in the series. As for Akidzuki Sorata’s future one-shots, they will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. We do know there are other groups who like Sorata-sensei’s stories more than we do, so I think we would wait and see if those group translate the one-shots before taking any one of them on. … Continue reading Akagami no Shirayukihime has been Transferred to Fallen Syndicate
