Damn… I loved the mangas Kotonoha used to translate. All-rounded Meguru was one of my favourites.

megchan Reply:

Yeah, I enjoyed working with him. It looks like someone else is still scanlating Meguru, though.

Do you have Anything and Something by Kaoru Mori? According to BU it's also translated by Kotonoha.

Sorry, but I only have the stuff I worked on with them and I didn't work on that one.
