Happy new year, everyone! I can’t believe another year has passed so quickly (and now somehow we’re already halfway through January).
Hopefully I’ll have some manga to post soon, but in the meantime I wanted to just give you a heads-up on where all the projects stand.
Baby, Kokoro no Mama ni
Now that I have a couple people working on this with me, I’m hoping to be able to settle into a monthly release schedule again. Even though this project has had a very erratic release schedule since its start, the Japanese release has been very slow, too, and volume 5 was only released a few months ago, so we’re not falling too far behind!
Unfortunately the series was cancelled and volume 5 is the final volume. However, we plan to continue to release the entire series in English, and will be continuing to attempt to keep to a monthly schedule.
I know this is one so many of you have been waiting for, and I have to apologize! I feel like this series has been cursed, with every collaborator who’s worked on it with me disappearing. However, I do have good news! Going forward I will be working with Heterophobia Fansubs, who have collaborated with me on Love Buzz and The Cherry Orchard. They’ve been really reliable so far, so I have high hopes that the curse will be broken. There are only seven chapters left to go in this series and hopefully we can get the next one out later this month or early next month, and then continue on a semi-regular (if not monthly) schedule from there.
I had hoped to get a second chapter out last month as a year-end bonus, but work was busy and that didn’t happen. However, we are planning to continue on a monthly schedule for this one.
This has been a very slow release, but we are so close to being finished! Just two chapters left, and hopefully we can get both of those out within the next couple months.
Juusan Yasou Kidan
Honestly, I do not know the status of this series. Two of the remaining stories are completely translated, but my collaborator got busy and I’ve not heard from her in ages. I do want to finish this, though, even if it means looking for someone else, but since they’re one-shots, it’s been low on the priority list.
Koi-iji: Love Glutton
This one is chugging along at a good pace! Should have another chapter for you guys very soon.
We’re down to the final volume now and hope to continue on a monthly schedule for the remaining chapters.
Musume no Iede
This series finished in Japan last year with volume 6, so we are halfway through. It’s been difficult to stick to a monthly schedule with this one, but hopefully we’ll continue least once every couple months if not faster.
Like Juusan Yasou Kidan, this has been very backburner because it’s just one-shots and no one is waiting for what’s coming next. There’s only one story left to finish up the volume, though, so hopefully I can get that out within the next few months.
You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead
This one is coming along well and hopefully we should be able to continue with the monthly double release.
And of course for you Yasha fans, there’s the sequel, Eve’s Slumber. I had originally thought I might be able to get a chapter out to you last month for the holidays, but that didn’t happen. The first chapter is actually very long (about a hundred pages), so I think rather than break it up into smaller chapters, I’m going to release the whole thing at once, but that means it probably won’t happen until next month at the earliest.
Several of these series should wrap up this year, which means I’m thinking of what projects to take on next, but don’t have anything decided yet.
Anyway, thank you all for your patience and all your support over the years. The next post will contain some manga, I promise!
