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.

Here are the latest additions to my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection (details, information and samples available there) :

I still have plenty mangas bought last summer that I haven’t screenshot yet. And there are so many more I want to purchase. But I’m trying to be reasonable. First I need to take care of those summer purchases but I’m such a procrastinator, it’s turning ridiculous.

It’s been a while and I bought a lot of mangas. There are many promos at different sites so I just grab the Harlequin and Romance comics I don’t have yet in Japanese. Here are some of those latest acquisitions. Details, information and samples are available at my Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page.

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.

Because my collection has grown so huge (there are over 350 mangas and I’m still buying more), I’ve decided that compiling all datas in 1 post isn’t the best solution. For some time already, the Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection page was taking forever to load.
So I thought about just making a text list so that the main page could appear faster and give links to pages with the detailed datas and samples. I should have switched to that text list long ago. Now that I look at it, it’s clearer for me to know what I actually have… and what I’d want to purchase in the future.
