And here comes the chapter 3 of Reforming Lord Ragsdale! At long last!

RLR

Go find out the details of today’s release at PopiahL‘s place.

It is PopiahL’s first scanlation project, so I’m pointing to you that feedback is appreciated. A kind word or just a comment showing interest always do someone good.

Now, the part where we need everybody’s help.

REQUEST FOR RAWS

About a month ago, PopiahL had tried reaching out to Transient Mirage, offering her translation services for the Wallflowers series. But no reply as of now. They haven’t been much active this year — their last post dates from January…

So I’m asking the people reading this message to pass the word that if someone possesses one or more books of the Japanese manga series and is willing to share the scans for a potential scanlation, could they please contact PopiahL at her site:

Old edition:

 

Or new edition:

 

It seems relevant to give precedence to the Wallflowers series, since the first manga has already been scanlated. But PopiahL is actually interested in any Lisa Kleypas manga — if you’re a little curious, take a look at her deviations.

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.

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 still haven’t screencapped all the Harlequin comics left from last summer shopping spree. Gosh, this is so hopeless… In my defense, there are not a lot left, about 20 or 30, I think. But I keep buying more, crazy collector me!

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

There are only 2 smutty additions this time: Royal Prince no Hatsukoi and Keiyaku no Kiss. Both are kinda disappointing for me, though they are sweet reads. I’m especially enthusiast about my Reforming Lord Ragsdale purchase. I’ve never read anything written by Carly Kelly, but this manga is sure something really different and lively. I’m not going to comment more about it though hope a scanlator or some publisher will decide to translate it because the manga is very good!

So, I’m gonna talk a little bit about my impressions about the 2 smutty mangas of my selection. (more…)
