Jejeje~ It’s time for a release!

I’ve been sitting here for well over two hours, fingers hovering over the keyboard, at a loss over what to write about. It’s not that I don’t have anything to talk about, but the words aren’t coming. Usually they just gush out as I hack away at my keyboard like a madman.

Honestly I feel like I’ve neglected these projects for way too long. I know this because as I was reading over Sekine’s Love Chapter 31, Utada Hikaru’s “Bouquet For You” was playing in the background, and nearing the end, I started tearing up. I was a soggy-eyed, drippy-nosed mess of a woman, alone in her room in front of the computer screen weeping like a baby, all because I missed an emotionally-stunted manga character.

Anyway, I’m sorry, Heel’s Staff. I really am. While you guys were working so hard, I was laying around in my underwear, eating bags of hot cheetos, crying and laughing to 156 episodes of Amachan. And while you had worked so hard, I was sitting on my hands, thinking about how I may be having a girl crush on Nounen Rena, how it sucks that her dumb agency denied her roles in Attack on Titan and Chihayafuru, and that I’ll freaking write them a letter to tell them how much they suck!

Now that she’s at least back doing a voice role for upcoming animated film, “In This Corner of the World”, my feelings of ire have settled down somewhat, and my health will at least allow me this spark of energy to bring the readers these wonderful chapters you’ve helped me to produce.

I’d like to give a special thanks to Sparks for helping with the translations for & (Okazaki Mari) during a time where I’ve been down in the dumps and unable to provide a decent translation to save my life, and also to filli, who is a new volunteer I’m just getting to know. Hopefully one day she’ll be able to take my place here once and a while so that you’ll get to know her better too!

Happy Reading!

    Thank you too, I’m so happy to work on these projects! *shy* This summer was rather hard, but typing these chapters I could relax a little! :>

    Oh, Kono sekai no katasumi ni! I read this manga and loved it deeply. Nounen Rena’s voice in the trailer sounds so nice, it really suits Suzu, the heroine. I’m looking forward to watch the whole movie and seeing how she performs Suzu (the whole cast is wonderful, by the way).

    Thanks a lot for the releases!

    Out of curiosity I looked for “Amachan” and for some reason I liked this line (taken from wikipedia): ” Amachan was not only a ratings success, but brought economic benefits to Tohoku region […]”
    Wow, the power of TV!

      Gaby, if you ever get a chance give this show a try. It was my first asadora, and also the first drama that dealt with the Tohoku quake in 2011. You can stream it online at dramacool. The episodes are only 15 minutes each. Do it! Do it! Do it!

      • Gaby September 26, 2016 at 6:06 pm

        Oh if they are this short, I can surely give it a try! I was thinking at first that they were 156 eps of 45 minutes and I died mentally lol, especially because of time constraints but 15 minutes is something doable! 😀
        Thanks a lot for the rec!

    Greatly appreciate the work, Hats. Happy to hear that you could find something to write.

    My reaction to Sekine this time around was a bit more muted – I currently feel only anticipation for the next chapter, and the end as well. Depending on how it ends will decide on whether or not I throw myself to the ground flailing in frustration and rage haha

      Dear god – Now that you mention it, the weight of so many readers’ sanities rests on our shoulders! I don’t know if any of us are really ready for that. For sure, we’ll put this one out ASAP. But, once again, are any of us REALLY ready for it?!

    Many thanks for the release, Hats & the rest of the lovely team <3
    For some reason, I've been quite depressed lately and the latest chappie of Sekine doesn't help. /laughs weakly
    I'm off to read a less depressing manga now.

    • hats99 September 26, 2016 at 12:18 pm

      Crap, I’m sorry to hear that Lilly! Didn’t mean to drag you down by the heels.

      I hope you find yourself a good pick-me-up until we meet again.
