I’m in the process of re-reading Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series for the 3rd time. Usually, I dislike re-reading books but this series is my first exception. This is telling about how talented this author is for me to feel the compulsion to grab and explore again and again this series. Mrs. Singh has truly created an ensemble series, scattering pieces and hints throughout each book that make sense in several later books. So I need to re-read and try to catch the clues I missed before.

Today, I was trying to imagine what cardinal eyes could look like. But my imagination wasn’t providing me appealing visuals. I kept picturing the kind of black demonic eyes (no whites, just wholly black) we see in TV shows with evil creatures or possessed humans.

And then, I stumbled upon this page:
http://www.boredpanda.com/blind-owl-starry-eyes-zeus-wildlife-learning-center/
And so I went to the source site:
http://www.wildlifelearningcenter.org/zeus-the-blind-owl/

My goodness! This owl’s eyes are stunningly beautiful!

I couldn’t believe it at first. It is a bit sad that Zeus is blind but at the same time, it’s heartwarming that he was rescued and can now live protected, safe and sound. It’s not freedom. But in the wild, this “defective” creature would have died long ago due to its handicap.

Now, I can better understand the stupefaction and fascination and wonder the characters in the Psy/Changeling series must feel when looking into cardinal eyes…

And one more batch of smuttiness.

You won’t find the mangas here, at ID romance junkie, but somewhere else. Don’t ask where, I will not answer. Search a little around, you’ll find.

I like a lot Kouduki-sensei’s art style —so lovely art!
I don’t post often about what I actually collect — aside from Harlequin and Romance comics, of course! I tend to grab whatever I find on the Internet, dump it somewhere in my hard drive and forget about it until something comes up reminding me I did get it.

I’m presently following a few series online, like the works released in the Next comics web magazine. It started because I saw one day Fleur, by Nagato Kayo. I still don’t know what’s going on in this series. So if you’d like to write a summary, I remind you that I’ve posted the raws of the first 3 volumes (digital versions) somewhere — not telling and don’t ask, if you search a bit you can find where they are.

But I’m digressing. I don’t know if anybody has already mentionned Kouduki-sensei’s sheikh theme recent work. It looks like it was out in January this year. I’m tempted to buy the digital version when there’ll be one if nobody posts scans of the physical book until then. For now, I’m sharing the free chapters I’ve collected online.

EDIT

I’ve removed the links from volume 1 to 8 because someone has shared the scans of the printed books somewhere around the internet. Good hunting.

I’ll continue from volume 9 with the magazine releases until the scans for the tankoubon version appear somewhere.
I’ve already bought the first tankoubon, digital version, and am planning to purchase the rest of the series.

Title: Kokuyou no Sheikh wa Ai wo Sasayaku
Author: KOUDUKI Rin

VOLUME 1: part 1 to 7
VOLUME 2: part 8 to 14
VOLUME 3: part 15 to 21
VOLUME 4: part 22 to 32
I missed part 28 when it was released. From my vague memories, I think it was about 8-10 pages long.
VOLUME 5: part 33 to 45
VOLUME 6: part 46 to 59
VOLUME 7: part 60 to 72
VOLUME 8: part 73 to 85

If someone per chance wants to use my files for scanlation, tell me and I’ll send you the slightly better unmarked raws.

Looking through my Harlequin raws collection, one artist makes me ache for another mangaka terribly.

I miss you so much, Takashima-sensei.

The BL community lost a great artist when she went on hiatus so many years ago. I used to think that should she not have suffered the trouble she had met, she would have become one of the top BL artists, maybe in the same league as Yamane Ayano-sensei. And Yamane-sama is my ultimate reference for the BL genre!

I’m so very sad that Last Client will likely never get the end it deserves.

Takashima Kazusa-san proved with this manga how good she was with drama, adult themes, heavy angst and bloody action.

I miss you, Takashima-sensei. 。゚・(>﹏<)・゚。

Here comes the new batch of smut.

You won’t find the files at ID romance junkie but somewhere else. Don’t ask where the links are, I will not answer to any question related to this point. Search a little around, you’ll find.

More and more mangas waiting for me to screencapture them. I don’t know anymore if I’ll ever be able to screencap everything. I finish a couple of them, then a campaign on a site appears and I end up buying 10 more, increasing endlessly my waiting list. *facepalm*

Still, I’m adding today this batch to my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page. At least, these ones are done.

Harlequin comics

  1. [Carole Mortimer×ASO Ayumu]An Enigmatic Man
  2. [Kat Cantrell×DAN Karan]The Things She Says

Details and samples for each manga can be read at the following pages:
► Harlequin comics raws: A-E | F-J | K-O | P-T | U-Z | Complete multi-author series
► Non-Harlequin manga raws: Adapted from Western works | Original Japanese works

If someone is interested in scanlating a story or more in that list, you can submit a request for the raws HERE.
But I suggest for English speaking scanlators to look preferably at the non-Harlequin manga list. The Harlequin comics are consistently translated into English by the publisher. So sooner or later, the one you’re interested in will get translated. Contrastingly, the non-Harlequin mangas are barely picked by anyone.

This is now a stupid running joke: me not having yet screencapped the rest of the Harlequin comics bought 2 years ago. And to make matters worse, I just keep buying more. But… I try… I really do try cleaning. It’s just that sometimes, I can’t seem to resist purchasing a manga even though I know I’ve got over hundreds waiting for me to make a safe copy, just in case the ebookstores I use keel over and disappear with my purchases.

Whatever, today I’m adding this batch to my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page:
