Spring Cleaning 2014
Ahoy! No releases this time around, but there will be one shortly. If you’ve been following our Twitter, then you may already know what some of those projects are. This is simply an update post on stuff that hasn’t been released in ages. Anything not on this list you’ll be seeing soon.
And forgive me: I wish I had something clever to say, but I smeared my eyeliner from yawning so hard and look like a freaking clown, and now I have to focus all my energy into realigning my face before another client walks in to do a double take. I’ve already embarrassed myself once today at a Lee’s Sandwich shop, trudging in for a cup of coffee with mismatched heels. This middle-aged Vietnamese man was ogling my feet for so long that if it wasn’t for me noticing him trying hard to suppress his amusement, which in turn caused me to look down at my feet and see the mismatched heels, I would have wrongly suspected him of nurturing a foot fetish. (╯3╰)
So forgive me, but C + P’s away!

The joint group backed out on this project after we had already put out a chapter. While I would have liked to have been denied before we started so that I could have focused my energy elsewhere, these things happen. So, yes, while there has been quite a delay, we will have a chapter out shortly thanks to cheesecrayons and Minelauva!
Chapter 4 is coming shortly, but the fate of Chapter 5-7 is up in the air at this point. Where are my cleans Lapin Peluche?! (Though they will just shout right back: Where are our scripts?!)
Remember the story about the girl who’s afraid of getting molested on the train? How about the four friends who get entangled in a love rectangle, but tragedy occurs before anything gets solved? What about the girl who looks like anpan? Or the boy who uses, “Wanna see my dog?” as an excuse to lure the anpan into bed? No? Well, no wonder. It’s been 232 days (and counting) since our last release! So aren’t you glad to know that we’ve got all of Volume 2 cleaned, and it’s being typesetted right now?
Any volunteers to clean Volume 3, please contact me!
We’re working on the last chapter. It will be done! Maybe sooner than later. Keep your fingers crossed!

Oh, man, if we had to name one project that presented us with the most problems, this would be the one. Trying to get this project edited is akin to raising a teenage son who’s going through freaking puberty and you need to freaking convince him to take out the freaking trash and do his freaking homework. That’s how frustrating it is. I swear I wasn’t smoking anything, but Chapter 9 was supposed to have been cleaned, but wasn’t, and then the supposed cleaned chapter went to a typesetter, who probably went, wtf?, scratched her head, shrugged her shoulders, and was like, “If you say so…”
So lo and behold, months later, it lands itself in Stiletto’s QC box, which she opens, and whose contents send her reeling back in her chair. So then I did the dirtiest thing possible: Chucked it into SwirlyOwl’s gigantic stack of other crap she already has to do, so that she could kill time at an airport terminal prepping the raws. m(_ _)m
I’m really sorry, but I don’t want to sacrifice sleep just to get this out. It’s an interesting manga, just not interesting enough to tempt me out of slumber. The apologies are more for the people who worked on it: That means you, Ellis and kpossible. At the rate that I’m typesetting, you may see a chapter in April. If not, then early May at the latest.
We haven’t dropped it yet! I had a bit of a mental hiccup trying to figure out what projects should be focused on first, and this one kept getting swept under the rug. Bizkit finished up the typesets for Chapter 4, and Flapper Girl is doing the SFX’es. I’m working on the scripts for the rest of Volume 1. If you know where to find Volume 2 public raws, please let me know! I seriously lost it when my portable HD crashed.
