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.

You do such interesting series that no matter what series you work on, I will read it.
Thank you!

Thank you so much for your passion. I have been reading your blog and scanlations since Himegoto days. It would be Wonderful if you could take a look at Minenami San latest work: 少年のアビス . It seems more adult than Hatsukoi Zombie maybe in the same topic than Himegoto.
Regards anyways, waiting to see your new choice.

@Alex Thanks for the heads up! I didn't realize they had a new series out. I wasn't that interested in Hatsukoi Zombie but I just read the first chapter of this and it's really good. If someone hasn't picked it up by the time the first volume comes out, I'm definitely interested.

Thanks for all your hard work! I'm also in a scalation group, so I'm aware of how much work it takes to release a chapter.
I'm looking forward to see Eve's ending, and I hope you are interesting in doing more Akimi Yoshida's works, such as California Story or Umimachi Diary.

I am definitely interested in doing more of her stuff if time permits!

Thank you for sticking with Eve in nimori, I'm so excited to read the end and for the Yasha series to be complete. Thank you so much!

Hi, I heard that you did Digimon V-Tamer all those years ago and I was wondering if you can help me translate Inazuma Eleven if my translator doesn't come back?

@Emi-San

Unfortunately I don't have time for a longer project like that. I hope your translator comes back or you're able to find someone else!

Hi Megchan, happy to see you're still enjoying it all! I myself had to take a forced break after 8 years a couple years ago. I would love to help you out with one of your future series. I'm a bit rusty, but can still clean and typeset!

@Iru that would be great! Can you email me at kyuuketsukirui@gmail.com
