Hand Holding Action

Hello everyone!

Contact, finally!

Contact, finally!

Today we have the final part of volume 3 of Hi Izuru Tokoro no Tenshi!  Joint with Onadoru Euphoria.
In which Emishi proves once again that he has eyes for no one besides Umayado, whom everyone wants to bed.
We have some cross-dressing action, and more scheming
Plus, Emishi and Dad talk about hooking.

I slept only three hours tonight, so my brain isn’t working. I almost forgot to post this, too.
Good thing I scribbled down some notes about this part (which is almost 120 pages long) while I was working on it,
because otherwise you’d have a title that said “a crapload of pages” and a very empty release post.
Not that anyone reads those, so… Whatever.

I recently started using Twitter for my personal use, to follow a few people.
Having fun following one guy in particular. My motives are not pure, not unlike himself. ufufufufufu.
If you can guess who it is, I will grant you a reasonable favor that is in my means to accomplish. Clues: British, gay & aviator sunglasses.
Oh, so I thought I’d plug the official HotCakes twitter here, which I announce updates on, too.

Well, this has gotten longer than I had anticipated.
Be on the lookout for more lovely series!

Hello everyone!

Let's be happy while we still can

Let’s be happy while we still can

Today we have a new GL oneshot for you, (joint with Lililicious), called Gardenia by Himiwari Souya.
It’s about two girls who fall in love, but as expected in that era, they cannot be together forever.
I don’t know what’s up with all those sad love stories lately, and believe me, they break my heart as well…
But without the bitterness, we wouldn’t appreciate the sweetness and all that jazz.

But, worry not! Not everything is bleak today, as we have a single page extra for Blue Spring Runnings (under “extra”).
It’s short, it’s sweet, and it’s bound to be the perfect pick-me-up, especially if you love girls in swimsuits. I know I do. ;p

As for all the other things, they’re coming. I’ve been really busy with work lately, but I have a few days off so I hope I can catch up with all the neglected scanlations!



Aqua Planet Chronicle – new joint

Hello everyone!

What's this? A new series?

What’s this? A new series?

Today we proudly present a new joint with Futari wa Pretty Anon, called Aqua Planet Chronicle. We’ll be starting from chapter 3 and onward.
The previous chapters are available to download from the series’ page.

I’ve actually had my heart set on doing this series for years now, but was never able to find a translator for it. My failure to find translators hits me in the gut time after time.
One of my absolute favorite series is Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou (yes, I CAN indeed spell this out from memory, such is my love for it). and Aqua Planet Chronicle gave me a similar sort of feeling.
I’ve read the first 6 chapters in Russian a while back and it’s a really nice series, so I hope you enjoy!

Help in the form of translators is always welcome.
Please, translators, please…



New Segment: Work Reviews

Hello everyone!

So while listening to the new, marvelous Emancipator album, I thought I’d announce that I will be reviewing titles I’ve done for work.
By work, I mean legally translated, typesetted and released digitally on Renta.
Here’s a mostly complete list. I will not be reviewing any titles my co-workers have done and I will most likely skip most of the shoujo.
Which leaves us with BL and a few shoujo titles I’ve especially enjoyed. This will be an on-going segment, with no particular schedule.
I already have an idea which titles I’ll be starting out with, and hopefully my first review won’t take too long to be up.

*If enough people show interest in me reviewing a manga I didn’t particularly like, I will be open to doing it as well in the future.

The format will be as follows:

A short synopsis of each chapter or the entire volume, followed by in depth reviews of each chapter and or volume, depending on content.
Screenshots will be included and you will be provided with links to the series on English and Japanese Renta.
If you would like to read those titles fully, you on purchase them on said sites.

I hope someone will find my reviews interesting, and even if not, I hope it’ll expose more people to these books and buying options. =)



The Moon That Shines Upon Us All

Hello everyone!


We're so happy right now, so keep reading.

We’re so happy right now, so keep reading.

Today we have the oneshot Half Moon, Ephemeral and Eternal from the collection Aqua Plane, by Kurokiri Misao.
Joint with lililicious!

It’s a pretty sad, yet realistic tale of love and loss and how relationships don’t always last.
So if you’re in the mood for something a bit sad right after our previous, tragic release of Gunjo… ;p

I’ve been pretty busy with work lately, so I haven’t had time to have much done.
But worry not! Many hotcakes (releases) of all shapes and sizes are in the oven (I know you make hotcakes on the stove, but this kinda kills the metaphor).
I don’t know if anyone reads what I write, besides clicking on the releases (because tbh, it’s not like I have many interesting things to tell), and it’s not like we release popular stuff that attract the crowds.
And I’ve been slacking in updating the reader, too. I know, I know, I suck at running this one-person group. Le sigh.

But anyways, I dunno if I’ve spoken about it, but right now, I typeset manga (that’s digitally released) for a living.
It doesn’t pay much, but it allows me to work from home and put the skills I’ve developed over the years (which I thought wouldn’t help me much in life) to good use.
Most of the manga I do is shoujo smut, which I personally do NOT enjoy. Some stories are better than others, some suck (both literally and figuratively), but some are actually really interesting.
I even get to do BL from time to time, and most of those stories are pretty good. I’d have read them myself, had they been scanlated.
So I was thinking I could write about the stories I work on, if anyone show interest…

But anyways, thank you for being patient.

Future releases will include:
Gunjo  ch16
Hi Izuru Tokoro no Tenshi (the rest of the volume)
Nishioka Kyoudai – an entire volume of oneshots
More GL oneshots with lililicious
And a new joint with Futari wa Pretty Anon on Aqua Planet Chronicle.

So stay tuned!



Despair is Imminent

Hello everyone!

I thought it might have taken longer, but today Megchan Scanlations and I present you with Gunjo’s final part of chapter 15, in which we find out what actually happened to the blond’s ex.
It’s quite heartbreaking, and you should have a box of tissues reading if you’re inclined to tears. And if so, do read it at night before going to bed, so it doesn’t ruin the rest of your day.

On to chapter 16!
We’ll get it out as soon as possible, but it needs to be scanned first.

Have a good one.
