And so I continue trying to reduce a little my screencapture waiting list of Harlequin & Romance comic raws. In a way, it’s a good thing that I’m busy with scanlation right now, so I have less time getting tempted by new purchases.

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.

I keep piling the raws purchases and still have no time to screencapture them all. Today is a rare opportunity for me to update a little my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection by adding a few Romance mangas that have been waiting in my hard drive for months, some of them for over a year. Yeah, I’m the laziest of the slackers.

Romance comics
First we have the Romance comics based on Western novels:

  • [Patricia K. Azeltine×SAKURAYA Hibiki]Temporary Husband
  • [Barbara Cartland×HANABUSA Yoko]Paradise Found
  • [Barbara Cartland×HANABUSA Yoko]The Wings of Ecstasy
  • [Barbara Cartland×KOBAYASHI Hiromi]The Innocent Imposter
  • [Barbara Cartland×MIYAMOTO Karin]Love in the Dark
  • [Janet Daily×HARADA Makiko]The Second Time
  • [Aimee Duvall×KISHIDA Reiko]One More Tomorrow
  • [Liz Grady×KOBAYASHI Hiromi]Reclaim the Dream
  • [Anne Hampson×MOCHIZUKI Reiko]Sweet Second Love
  • [E. M. Hull×HANABUSA Yoko]The Sheikh
  • [Valerie King×HASHIMOTO Takako]Wicked and Wonderful
  • [Jayne Ann Krentz×HASHIMOTO Takako]Trust Me
  • [Connie Mason×SAITO Chiho]Sheik
  • [Nora Roberts×HANABUSA Yoko]Tonight and Always
  • [Elizabeth Thornton×HASHIMOTO Takako]The Marriage Trap
  • [Patricia Waddell(gc4)×SANAZAKI Harumo]He Said Never

Then the original Japanese works:

  • [HAMAGUCHI Natsuko]Boku dake no Princess
  • [Kate Field×HANASATO Hikari]Kamen no Sheikh
  • [Sharon Andrew×NAGASAKI Maoko]Matenrou no Sheikh
  • [SAKAI Miwa]Millionaire lawyer likes redhead+A night at the ball
  • [SANAZAKI Harumo]Sheikh ni Koi no Hanataba wo
  • [Margaret Channing×TACHIBANA Kaya]Sabaku no Ou ni Dakaretara

Plus these 2 that are completing the Sheikh to ai no daiya series:

  • (sad2)[OGATA Rin]Aoki Hoshikage no Chikai
  • (sad3)[MAKI Shoko]Aoki Ryuusa no Kuchizuke
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

The second chapter of Reforming Lord Ragsdale is out! This part was hell to edit but so fun to read at the same time! I hope you’ll enjoy it as well.

Go meet PopiahL — my partner — and learn more about this pet project of ours.

I remind you it’s her first time translating and participating in scanlation. Even if we do this primarily for our own satisfaction, receiving feedback can also be gratifying.
(*^▽^*)

[UPDATE 31/07/2016]Added part 86 to 93

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 (more…)

So these last weeks, I’ve been busy with RL and a new challenge. This has left me too little time to screencapture mangas.

Because when a few weeks ago, I received a request for a title in my Harlequin & Romance comic raws list from a newbie translator with zero experience in scanlation, I accepted enthusiastically — I’ve been waiting for sooo long that a scanlator would take a look at this manga — and offered my help too.

That’s how the 2 of us ended up laboring on our first collaboration. Here’s your hint about what we’ve been plotting: (⌒.−)=★

Now, go greet my partner in scanlation hell, PopiahL, and look at today’s release!

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!
rescued-blind-owl-zeus-5.jpg

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.
