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 analogy).
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 shows 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!
