Anniversary Releases…….!!!!

copo

Hello, everyone!

Today we have anniversary releases for you, and right on time, for once!
Our first releases was on 04/03/09. I sure can’t believe I’ve been doing this for five years now… It’s pretty amazing to even think about.
This year has had its ups and downs for our little group. We’re semi-inactive at this point, with some of the girls pitching in with QCing.
Despite not having a translator, I’m collaborating with other groups like Lililicious, Onadoru-Euphoria, Megchan, Stiletto-Heels and illuminati-manga.
I’ve met some really great people in those groups. Special thanks goes to Erin, who’s helped me finish Copernicus at last!
And to megchan, who’s translating the final volume of Kisshou Tennyo for us! I hope to release the complete volume in a couple of months.
My gratitude goes to everyone I’ve worked with, currently and in the past.
And the readers too, of course, who still visit this site and even leave comments!
I appreciate your help and hope to continue scanlating in the future as well.

End of the Year Releases~

Why hallo there!

I didn’t think we’d make it this year, but we did and we even have a new Yoshida Akimi oneshot to share~!!
But before that, let me thank all the people who have helped HotCakes this year. The wonderful groups we’ve worked with and the staffers who’ve stuck by through thick and thin.
Unfortunately, things are still pretty grim for us. We are again left with no translator and this means all independent projects are still on hold.
Please, if you’re fluent in Japanese and English do consider joining us or even freelancing for a couple of stories/oneshots.
All I want is to share forgotten gems with you guys! Yoshida Akimi and Ooshima Yumiko have become absolute favorites of mine and it saddens me to see how little regard they get.

All in all, the years pass by so fast . Let’s raise a glass and a release for more to come!

Once, twice, three times…

Hey guys!

I know it’s been a while again, but life is a bitch sometimes. I lost someone very dear to me and I was having a very hard time dealing with that.
To be honest, I didn’t even see a point in continuing scanlating… But I’m grateful to all the people I’m working with for being so patient with me while I did some soul searching.
I don’t usually talk about my personal affairs, mostly because I don’t think the internet is the best place to do so, but also due to the fact that my life isn’t especially interesting. I work, I study, my income is quite low and I my free time is scarce. Reading manga used to fill quite a lot of my life, but that changed and now I mainly read what I scanlate and follow authors I like.
Life isn’t easy, but we aren’t all fortunate enough to be born into money~ ¬†Oh well… Continue reading
