Free Kisses

Hey guys, I've got a little something different for you today. Migeru, who has been my awesome cleaner/typesetter for so many projects, approached me about a single-volume series she'd translated herself, that she wanted help proofreading since her level of Japanese is low. So while I was not the translator for this project, I did do a very thorough revision so I can guarantee that the quality of translation is the same level you have come to expect from my other projects. The other thing different about this is that it's BL (and quite graphic at that). It's not a story I necessarily would have chosen to translate on my own, but if you are a fan of BL, please give it a try! Finally, rather than serializing, we decided to publish it all in one go, so this is the entire volume in a single release (four chapters plus a couple bonus chapters).

Title: Free Kisses
Author: Akahoshi Jake
Publisher: Daria Comics
Genre: BL
Status in Japan: 1 volume, complete
Scanlator: Migeru + Megchan's Scanlations
Scanlation Status: Complete
More Info: Baka Updates

Summary: In junior high, Aikou had a crush on his tutor that ended badly. Now in high school, he's joined a "kiss club" at a local bar to try and relearn about love starting with the basics. While holding up a "free kisses" sign in the park one day, he's spotted by Eisuke, a boy from his school. Intrigued by Aikou's sign, Eisuke impulsively kisses him. Could this kiss be Aikou's chance to start over?

Hi!!

I was surprised to see this kind of manga here, since as you explained it's not the usual type you'd pick… But it doesn't mean it's bad :P

As a BL fan I'll give it a go! Thanks to Migeru for doing such an effort on it and thanks to megchan for helping her!!

*clap**clap**clap*

BTW, yes, you made a good decision. I love whole-volume releases XD

I hope you enjoy it! Usually I'm too impatient to do full volume releases, but for something like this that is complete in one volume, it does make it nice to release in one big chunk. :)

I liked it. It sure has some smut on it, but I enjoyed the story a lot ^^

Yes, I understand, since you already have the releases done it's a pity not to release it once it's done for everyone to enjoy but it's better this way, since you get a surprise release and you get to enjoy it in one go! :D

Anyways, thank you again <3

Hi, just wanted to stop by and thank you and Migeru for the release of this project! I hope you don't mind me saying this, but I think I used to follow your blog a long time ago for a different shoujo project (I forget what now), so I'm happy to see you still around. I've only really read BL these past five years, so if it was for a shoujo project, it was a loooong time ago.

@Migeru, thanks for picking this project, this is my first time reading something by this manga-ka and I absolutely enjoyed it! I've been in a bit of a reading slump and this kind of kicked me out of it, so thank you for all the hard work!

Glad it got you out of your slump! :D

I love this!! Sorry I'm late to say thanks — been busy re-reading Free Kisses. Lol~ These two are so in love I didn't expect this tbh. XD At first, it's kinda look like it's going to be a bit of a dark story, I don't know why just my the feeling I got when I first read it. Hehe~☆ But then it turned out to be one fluffy manga and so cute I went kyaaaaaa~ o(>\\\\\<)o I love their friends, too. They are ones good friends for accepting and trying to make up in the toilet stall(?). Thank you so much for this project! Love your credit page! ♡

megchan Reply:

LOL Yeah, it ended up super fluffy. XD I don't think the author was expecting that, either.
