While Kidu and I are still figuring out what we want to do next, I’m happy to announce a new collaborator, NightSwan of HotCakes. I’m going to be doing some translation work for them (I’ll make an announcement here when it’s posted) and they’re doing some cleaning and typesetting for me!

As some of you may remember, I did some Kawahara Kazune one-shots with Occasional Amateur Scanlations. We finally put out the last story of A Can of Happiness, but I had also translated one and a half stories from another collection called Tensei (Splendid). Those translations have just been sitting on my hard drive all this time, with me thinking maybe someday I would get around to doing the cleaning and typesetting myself, but obviously that never happened. But NightSwan is way better than me at all that stuff, so you’re getting something much nicer than I would have put out myself! :D

I only have half of the next story in the collection translated (and there’s a third I haven’t even started on) and it’s pretty low priority, but since these are one-shots, it’s not like you’ll be left with a cliff-hanger if it takes a while to get them out. But anyway, if you like Kawahara Kazune or just want to check out some older shoujo (I just looked at the publication date and this is over 20 years old! Wow, I don’t remember it being that long ago… XD), please take a look!

    Thank you for the scans :)!

    I love Kawahara sensei’s work. If you are looking for a new project, how about Aozora Yell?

      I love Aozora Yell and have definitely thought about it before, but there’s always been someone else translating it, even if slowly, and I don’t want to be in competition with someone else. It looks like the group who was working on it before has not abandoned it, though. As of a couple weeks ago, they answered someone on their blog and said they are editing chapters for a release soon, so hopefully they will come through with that!

      I will probably continue releasing some more of the old one-shots, though, since it seems no one else is interested in translating those. :)
