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) :

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.

My wide screen monitor broke about a month ago. I can’t buy a new one right now and am using a spare smaller monitor. It takes me four to six times longer to screencapture a manga. But for now, I have to make do. This is forcing me to slow down my manga purchases, only buying those I absolutely want.
What a pain as campaigns and bargains fly out of my reach for lack of time.

Sometimes, the English translated Harlequin comics don’t feature the atogaki and other extra pages. I don’t think it occurs with the recent releases, but with older digital releases, those pages were often not included or just left untranslated.

For the translators who’d want to scanlate extra pages that are not released by the publisher, I’m posting a few. These seem to be some presentation or free talk from the artist and were not actually part of the digital version of the tankoubon raws.

Maybe I’m in a foul mood, or maybe it’s that bad cold making me cough for over a month that’s turning me grumpy. I absolutly dislike Beyond Innocence illustrated by Takamure Tamotsu-san. It’s one of the rare Emma Holly’s novels I’ve read and liked. Even if I don’t expect a manga adaptation to be accurate, I barely recognize the story.
