[UPDATE 11/01/2016] Added part 61 to  70. I don’t have part 28.

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 2 volumes (digital versions) somewhere — not telling and don’t ask, if you search a bit you can find where they are. I still haven’t purchased the 3rd book though plan to.

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. Since I can’t read Japanese, I’ve often wondered if those chapters are just samples or full chapters? Sometimes, they feel uncomplete to me.

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

This is my last sharing of the year. Go grab the batch before I remove the links on January 10, 2016. They aren’t posted here, at ID romance-junkie. Don’t ask, search around and you’ll find.

I was planning to post this in December but only a few hours ago, a friend reminded me it’s Thanksgiving day in North America. So I’ve just decided to advance the sharing of this batch. You won’t find the mangas here, at ID romance junkie, but somewhere else. Don’t ask. Search a little around, you’ll find.

After reading the first chapter of Amelita’s Viewfinder fanfic Abduction, I couldn’t help sketching the silly piece at the bottom of this message. I’m not gonna post this to the Yamane com. Maybe it could offend some fans and I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feeling. This is just me going overboard goofy, inspired by this fanfic. At least, Amelita was positively amused.

Like all disclaimers, I swear I don’t own Viewfinder characters, they are Yamane-sensei’s properties. I used her own drawing for the chibi faces, all the nonsense around these faces are me fooling around with Amelita’s ideas (alien abduction — OMG tentacles! — , Katy Perry’s song E.T.) and my daft sense of humour. I really, really mean no harm.

A Dance Through TimeFor those of you who can read Italian, I’m sure you’ll end up finding this nice surprise. I just saw it looking at DC team’s place, where they have released the first chapter of Yume no Kishi ni Futatabi, aka A Dance Through Time, based on Lynn Kurland’s novel and illustrated by Tsuji Rikako.

I don’t know Italian myself. At least, I know French and some Spanish, and learned latin in my long gone junior high years. So even though I don’t understand everything, I can still vaguely grasp the meaning of the Italian translation.
A heartfelt thank you to the team. I wasn’t expecting them to release something so soon.

Now, if only some group or someone decides to start scanlating into English or French those Romance comics (based on Western works and original Japanese mangas) still sitting forlornly in my hard drive…

Here comes the new batch of naughtiness for this year Halloween. Don’t ask where to get them, I won’t answer except to say they aren’t here, at ID romance junkie, but somewhere else. Search a little around, you’ll find.

I feel like an utter failure. Don’t laugh but despite my efforts to scan the Harlequin comics purchased a year ago, there are still some left unattended. I’m terrible, buying more and more and unable to find the time to screencapture them all in my greed. I try, I swear that I try!

Well, in the meantime, I’m adding this batch to my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page (details, information and samples available there) :

  28. Carol Marinelli and HANATSU Yoshiko: The Italian’s Touch

If someone is interested in scanlating a story or more in that list, you can submit a request for the raws HERE.

But I’d really like for scanlators to look at the Romance mangas instead of the Harlequin ones. It’s not that I don’t like Harlequin comics. It’s just that they are now consistently translated and released by the publisher. So sooner or later, the Harlequin manga you’re interested in will be officially translated. In comparison, the Romance mangas are hardly picked up by anyone so far.
