Carnival of Blood and Bone ch. 1

I didn't mean to start a new project besides Love's Miracle and Yuria's Red String, but it just happened! This is a single volume one-shot collection by Uguisu Sachiko, author of You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead, so if you liked that, check this out. (Though I will say it's definitely more straight up horror than horror comedy.)

Upcoming projects

I know some of you have been wondering what I'm going to work on next, or even if I'm going to work on anything next, since I'm sure you can all tell that I've slowed down a lot on the number of projects I'm working on. The reason for that is because when I was working on a ton of stuff, I had a bunch of different cleaners and typesetters I was working with for each project, but over the past year or so they all had stuff come up and they had to take a break from scanlating, which means aside from Musume no Iede, I've been doing all the screencapping, translating, cleaning, and typesetting myself, which is a lot of work on top of my fulltime job.

I love scanlating and want to continue with it, but I've decided that I need to limit the number of series I'm working on right now. So I have two lined up, but I probably won't post anything on them until I finish up Eve's Slumber (two chapters to go!) and even then the pace might be slow. (As for Musume no Iede, the final two chapters are translated and have been for some time, just waiting on the cleaning and typesetting, but muge has also been really busy and unable to work on them.)

I have avoided talking too much about what I want to work on next, in case they get picked up by someone else or get officialy licensed (extremely unlikely with one of them, but you never know), but now that the time is drawing near, I guess I can make an announcement!

The first is Yuria's Red String, a currently running josei series that I fell in love with last year, about a fifty-year-old woman who finds out when her husband is hospitalized that he's not the man she thought.

The second is an old favorite of mine, The Miracle of Love. I have struggled to write a summary for this '90s josei series, but it is pure soap opera crack about a young woman in search of revenge against the mysterious "cousin" who destroyed her family.

I also am interested in Hiyodori Sachiko's new series Tokimeki no Ikenie, but that really depends on whether some other group picks it up before I get to it. (I don't want to work on it until the first volume is released, but there's always a chance someone will start with the chapters as they're posted.)

So anyway, that's where things stand now. I hope you'll enjoy these upcoming projects as much as I did. And of course, I'm always still taking suggestions for stuff, even if I don't have time to work on it right away. I'm also still interested in collaborating on stuff if you are just looking for a translator.

Fulldrum ch. 44-45

Summary: Hino is obsessed with playing sports in high school, but not because he loves sports (he doesn't), or is any good at them (he's really not). He's doing it because that's the way to get a girlfriend (or so he thinks). After getting kicked out of half his school's sports clubs, he's still convinced he just hasn't found the sport he's truly destined for. When he (literally) runs into Noborito Ayako, manager of the rugby club, it's love at first sight (for him), but all she's looking for is another warm body for the struggling rugby club. Could this be the chance he's been waiting for?

Chapter Summary: It's down to the last thirty seconds in the match. Will Hino be able to stop Kamata in his injured state? And then we flash forward for the epilogue…

Chapter 44: That Time
Chapter 45: Ruggerman Hino
