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

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. I had the translations done a long time ago, but life interfered and they never got beyond the script stage. But today I got a suprise email from Occasional Amateur Scanlations saying the final story in A Can of Happiness was completed!

A Can of Happiness


Story 1: A Can of Happiness
Emi wins the special prize in a raffle, which turns out to be a can that supposedly holds happiness. There's even a weird little man who starts following her around, claiming he's the "god of the can" and trying to give her advice. But all she wants is for her relationship with her boyfriend to feel less like a one-sided crush. Will this can really help her be happy?

I've been working with Occasional Amateur Scanlations to translate some older anthologies by Kawahara Kazune (author of Sensei! and High School Debut). This is the first story in an anthology by the same name. The other four stories in the anthology will follow whenever we get them done.
