We are putting “Kisu ni Renzoku”, the webcomic by Yuu Toyota, on hold until we are sure the volume 2 tankoubon is going to be released. We cannot finish the series without a paper version. For obvious reasons, I’m not going to “force” images out of the Polaris website. We want to properly buy the book. Anyone who wants to read the rest of the series can purchase the volume 1 compilation and then read the rest of the series in Japanese on the Polaris website. If another group would like to take on this project, please let me know, … Continue reading "Kisu ni Renzoku" is on hold pending the Release of Volume 2
Let’s get December started! I’ve been waiting for seemingly FOREVER for this series to come out in tankoubon form. It’s been out as a free online comic for about a year, but the image quality is not what we like for our translations (and I don’t like breaking DRM). With that in mind, if you must spoil yourself, volume 2 is available in Japanese on the Polaris Comics website (LINK). Updates are never on time, so it’s best to subscribe to the series RSS feed to keep up with the latest chapters. If you would like to own you own … Continue reading New Series: "Kisu ni Renzoku — Kneel, and Obey a Kiss" by Yuu Toyota
At last, a release!!! I can’t believe that it’s nearly been 2 weeks since we’ve released something. It’s not for lack of doing anything. We’ve been quite busy. I myself had to prep a couple of projects for lettering before I get to this one-shot and last week I was nearly useless because RL made me depressed and sleepy. Anyhow, here’s another one-shot from one of our favorite mangaka Yuu Toyota. This one is a quite bittersweet unlike the other one-shots. Still it’s a lovely story and fits very well with her other one-shots.And now onto the link! Link to … Continue reading One-Shot: "The Most Beautiful Name in the World" by Yuu Toyota
This is a really sweet one-shot. As of now this is tied with “Dinner in my Coffin” as my favorite Shiro Lala one-shot. This one-shot had tough redraws on nearly every page, so I would like to thank Ichigo Stars and Kumiko for all the work they put in to make the release of this one-shot possible. It’s beautiful, you guys! I really appreciate it. This one-shot plays with fairytale troupes. It feels very familiar, but I think this one-shot was well done, so I enjoyed the “remix”. If you haven’t read Toyota Yuu’s other one-shot “The Honeybee Earl and … Continue reading Shiro Lala One-shot: "The Wizard and the Love Potion"
I readily admit that this one-shot is a beyond cliched Cinderella story (the title page pretty much tells the entire story), but it’s done extremely well so all is forgiven. Actually, I enjoyed this one-shot A LOT. It filled the hole for a good summer romance comedy (damn you, Hollywood, make us some good summer movies!). Anyhow, there are no surprises here and it all ends with the lovely little bow, as it should. Yes, it’s perfect for the June wedding season :).
