Summary: In "He Won't Love Me", everyone knows Yasuda has a crush on Honda Yuka, AKA Yuka-chan-senpai, but that doesn't deter Akira from confessing her feelings to him. But when he agrees to go out with her, she finds it's harder than she thought to be with someone who has feelings for someone else.

One and Only

Somehow it's been three years since I released the first story in this collection of one shots. I don't know how that happened. Anyway, this one is long (90 pages!) so I guess that's my excuse. :p

Summary: Rika and Itou meet at the restaurant they both work at after school. Rika finds Itou scary and intimidating at first, but as he opens up to her, she soon finds herself falling for him. But when Itou announces he's quitting due to his mother's health, Rika is devastated…

One and Only

Tensei

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!

I'll Always Be Here

As some of you may remember, several years ago I was working on a collaboration with Occasional Amateur Scanlations to put out some old Kawahara Kazune one-shots.

But today I got a suprise email from Occasional Amateur Scanlations saying the final story in A Can of Happiness was completed!

Ahhh, another new project. *hangs head* But in my defense, this one is not just a collab, but I'm only supervising/editing on the translation end, so it really won't be interfering with my schedule for A Child's Child and Yasha.
