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 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.

For the translators who’d want to scanlate extra pages not included in the translated versions released by the publisher, here you are.

First post of the year. Wish you all the best.
I’ve been busy collecting smutty mangas on this holiday season, so less time to browse the romance manga field. My remaining Harlequin comics summer purchases are still waiting in my account at some ebookstore, waiting for me to screencapture them. But I’m the queen of procrastination… That BAD!

This time around, because I was so into smut shoujos and joseis these last months, I’ve picked 4 of them to include into the romance mangas. They have Western settings or at least are toying with Western romance criteria, mixed with that exotic Japanese flair. (more…)

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.

For the translators who’d want to scanlate extra pages that are not included in the translated versions released by the publisher, I’m posting a few here.

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.
