Juusan Yasou Kidan ch. 3-4

I was originally working on this project with HotCakes, but they have disappeared and I decided to go ahead and finish it on my own. There are five remaining stories, but only two of them are full length and the other three are very short, so today I have the third (long) and fourth (short) and the next and final update will be sometime in the next couple months with the last three stories (one long and two short).

In addition, since HotCakes' website no longer exists, I have uploaded the first story here even though I did not work on that one, just so that the whole volume can be preserved together.

Today I have some more vintage shoujo manga by Yoshida Akimi for you. This collection of one-shots was begun by HotCakes, but their translator dropped out after one story, so I'll be continuing it with them. The first story, At Summer's End, can be found on their site.

There are seven stories total, and since they're all unrelated one-shots, the release pace will probably be pretty sporadic, but I hope you'll enjoy each one as we manage to get them posted!

The Cherry Orchard

I started working on this last year, got the first chapter translated…and then the group I was working with dissolved. -_- Since I hate doing work and then ditching it, I found someone else to work with, the extremely talented Shinkaron of Heterophobia Fansubs, and am now happy to present you with all four chapters of this short story. :D

The volume also includes a fifty-page unrelated one-shot, which I'll be posting separately hopefully sometime in the next month or two.

So if you like Yasha and want to check out more by the author, if you're interested in 1980s shojo manga, or if you're the sort of person who just generally downloads everything I post, then I hope you enjoy this!
