A busy period

Greetings, I'm here to inform you that we will be relatively inactive in May. So whoever is waiting for Liquor & Cigarette chapter 2 that just came out a couple of weeks ago, extra chapter of RT+interview and more, Kasane, VL, new work of Chise, Zhen etc... Well... You probably won't be getting anything until June unless I am not the one approving the chapters. I'm busy. Also my staff have their own life, we only do this in our free time.

You may agonise in silence, but no complaint allowed. I'm sure you are aware that we sweat blood to produce the quality. We won't be any faster even if you lament out loud, it might have the opposite effect.

Hello, hello, hello, hello...

I'm back! It's me~ Mari- Tranquil Melancholy! Okay, it's been a while since my last announcement. Forgive me for stalling Kasane for so long. We *ahem* or actually just I *ahem* have been very busy. With this, it is the end of volume 3! We will try to release regularly from now on, but no promise. xD

Special thanks to Amy who saves Emi from mountains of work and allows us to continue with Vampire Library chapter 14 possible!

Hello o/

I am currently on a train going somewhere faraway to go even further away. It's kind of the same with this chapter, it's taking you to a more complicated and interesting plot ahead :>

Without further ado, please enjoy the long awaited cleaning and our cool and badass hunters *waves*

Please ignore my boring comment, read them right away!

Greetings, dear Leechers. Zhen is back. As there is no suitable word that can truly describe such beauty. With no further ado, feast your eyes.

To be honest, I think I like this chapter the most. LOL (No, not because of the explicit scene. lol)

Garcia is more endearing than Adam.

Liquor & Cigarette

Well...I guess it's a one-shot unless there is another chapter coming out later on...which we will gladly do.

Edit: Okay, people are going crazy over my 'one-shot' comment. It's just an irregular serialisation. lol Probably there will be more chapters coming out. I don't have the magazine with me right now so I cannot check, but it doesn't say that it is a one-shot in the colour page. So don't fret. If it will make you happy, I will put the project under 'ongoing'.

*ahem* *drum roll and all that jazz* We--together with Atelier du Noir--proudly present Liquor & Cigarette. Enjoy everyone.

Honestly saw it came out since months ago but no one seemed to be doing it, we just arbitrarily picked it up a few days back because two raw providers requested that I scanlated it, combining with my love for Zaria, well here we are. lol I know we should be focusing on finishing Zhen and then get back on Vampire Library and Kasane. We will do that now...

Since delicious things are bad--Final chapter.

Well, I believe you all miss this one. I have been putting it off for a while for many reasons... (Simply the translator has been very busy.) This chapter is the last of this tankobon. I hope you all enjoy it.

I'm going to finish up all the series that has already ended one by one from now on. So you might have to wait a bit for Vampire Library and Kasane. My goal is to focus on our main series after all the other short series are out of the way. (We have accumulated too many series...)

The invisible drama

Sorry for the wait, for whoever is interested in this matter, i.e. the invisible drama from two days ago. I hope you enjoy reading it, it's quite long but I tried my best to be entertaining. I decided to move the post below up here since it's polluting my release and removed all the duplicated explanations. The other party did their best to annoy me, so I felt compelled to respond in some way. :> I did give them time to come forward, but they never showed up and talked to me directly.

Here is my response to their slandering, spreading false accusations, picking a fight with me by sending me a hate mail.

This will be my one and only response, I had been very patient. You can tell from the chatlogs.

**************[the post from two days ago]***************

(02.02.2017 near midnight +0GMT) Edit2: Right now there is a one-sided misunderstanding (from the raw provider of Chrima scans, aliasanonyme) going on. I don't use tumblr so I almost never check my messages there especially when I talk to no one at all. And there seem to be a communication issue here. If nothing is resolved within 12 hours, I will post all the communication logs with all parties for the sake of clarification. (→edit: 3.2.2017 busy with assignments, this will be followed up after I'm done dealing with the tasks in my real life) Because this is too dramatic for me and I'm not interested in drama, especially when the opposite party completely misunderstood and still hasn't figured out the truth. This announcement will can be deleted once the issues are resolved.

[duplicate explanation] Click the link above for the chat logs

All these facts can be confirmed by Chrima's leader. :> For whoever (maybe just one?) is so mad right now, please communicate properly first. Do not be rude. Manel is my friend.

I am self-operating and this group has been operating for nearly ten years on and off, not counting the collaboration prior to that with many others. I have quite extensive resources so being rude and threatening me who hasn't once done a thing to anyone with something that has zero leverage isn't quite a way to go. I'm still calm so please try to sort this out before I actually lose it. :> It's just a tiny matter but  huge misunderstanding. :>

Edit3: No, I haven't received a single hate mail from anyone, only people "informing me" about the invisible drama unknown to me and one seemingly hate message from the person involved. So I think Chrima is misunderstanding something about the 'hate messages' part. :> And thank you those who sent me messages and notified me about this.

Hello, hello, hellooow...*half dead* before you start leeching our chapter 4, please redownload chapter 3, our first release had two pages missing. A kind fan notified us and provided those missing pages. Thank you so much.

I have decided to forgive Adam (lol) for all the crap I had to endure while translating/typesetting in the previous chapters.

Thank you Pink Unicorn, Saorren, Rimbaud, MBK, Lapis, and Cathy for participating in the final chapter. You won't understand the pain we (or maybe just Rimbaud and I) went through. haha

Enjoy. If fate permits we shall meet each other again on her next work. :> (or if there's special chapter in the tankobon.)

Edit: This is slightly awkward for me since I usually don't bring up silly personal stuff here (aside from all those nonsensical photos). Dear Chrima, we still love you, you know that. lol The mess from all the miscommunications left me flabbergasted... I left you guys messages through M. :> Thank you for the good time.

Vampire Library Chapter 12 & Kasane Chapter 25

I am here again. Many of our members have to take a break due to personal reasons, so I am recruiting for cleaners again. If you are up to cleaning Vampire Library, head to our Join Us page. We did enjoy ourselves during the holidays though. Above is the picture we took during the trip. :>

VL colour pages

The raws we use for all our VL chapters were originally published as you saw in our releases, but as you can see, the tankobon versions have some colour pages added in. So if you want them, buy them, support the author. (Like how I forced Emi to buy these for me...she spent lotsa time roaming around Seoul searching for them XD Thank you Emi!)

more colour page

That aside, enjoy the new chapter of Vampire Library and Kasane.
