Slower than your tortoise.

I’d just like to clarify a few things because it bears repeating. We will still be releasing new projects whether the readers like it or not. A series gets started once there is enough staff to cover it. That’s all there is to it. We have made it our goal to catch up with projects that fell behind, and we are open to joints with other teams who want to pitch in to help. In no way, do we “claim” projects. As our editor, Minelauva, puts it, we “hope that any potentially interested group would at least send us an email to ask if we would agree to let them take over the project / do a joint instead of just giving up because “we own the project since we started releasing it first.” Our only aim is to raise awareness in the series we scanlate.”

The “What” & the “Why”
What? Jiu Jiu: Last update by our team – 737d ago
Why? It has been licensed by Viz.
When will you release the next chapter? Never.

What? Himawari: Last update by our team – 640d ago
Why? We lost the raws to this project, and since it went out of print, I had a heck of a time trying to source it from Japan. But eventually I found it, had it shipped to us for a sum that almost gave me a heart-attack, and got someone to clean the next story. Carmasue has already prepped raws for the last story, and it will be out for cleaning just as soon as I can find someone to handle it.

The next story that we will relase will be an entirely new story, about a girl and her beloved cat.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

What? Kiyoku Yawaku (Joint w/ Perfect Illusions): Last update by our team – 357d ago
Why? Translations for the next chapter were turned in ages ago, but seeing as joints are a whole different animal all together, we had to sit and twiddle our thumbs for PI’s editors to get started. A decent time has passed since, and we have received no reply since then, so we will be resuming the project on our own.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

What? Mani Mani (Joint w/ Hotcakes): Last update by our team – 276d ago
Why? Me and Nightswan just sort of lost touch with each other for a while there, but we’re buddy-buddy again. Translations and edits are in progress.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

What? Chiruhi: Last update by our team – 204d ago
Why? Our scanner went on hiatus with the raws, but she finally had the chance to ship the raws to me. Story 2 ~ 6 translations and edits are in progress.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

What? Heartbroken Chocolatier: Last update by our team – 170d ago
Why? Ch.4 was finished ages ago. Ch.3 went through 3 editors before finally getting done, thanks to Janni (for the cleans), and kpossible (for the difficult redraws).
When will you release the next chapter? 2/29 or Early March.

What? Nina My Love: Last update by our team – 153d ago
Why? The whole hard-drive-screwed-up-and-cannot-recover-files thing.
When will you release the next chapter? 2/29 or Early March.

What? Toribako House: Last update by our team – 153d ago
Why? The editor disappeared; Lack of translators. I waited a decent while before passing Ch.3 onto someone else. Ch.4 cleans are finished, thanks to Lilanar, and Ch.5 is being worked on also.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

What? Bitou Lollipop: Last update by our team – 95d ago
Why? The whole hard-drive-screwed-up-and-cannot-recover-files thing. Lypiphera chipped in to finish up typesets for Chapter 9 and they have been whisked away to Forbidden Garden for quality-check. Cleans for Ch.10 ~ 12 are done by our joint team; translations are under way; and they will get typesetted lightning-quick once I turn them into Lypiphera.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

What? 3 AM Dangerous Zone: Last update by our team – 89d ago
Why? The whole hard-drive-screwed-up-and-cannot-recover-files thing.
When will you release the next chapter? 2/29 or Early March.

What? Sekine’s Love: Last update by our team – 59 Days ago.
Why? Our scanner went on hiatus with the raws, but she finally had the chance to ship the raws to me. Ch.7 ~ 10 has been scanned and are in the cleaning process right now.
When will you release the next chapter? Early March.

With that said, hope to see everyone on our next release date. Depending on our mood, it will either be a small batch on 2/29, or one gargantuan monster of a batch on 3/9.
