Hello my dear friends, readers and fans. Here’s a bittersweet post for you guys.
Firstly, finally got the chapter done. Please enjoy the fruits of our torturous process of scanlating it (Rena makes us all want to slap each other silly.)
It was a revolting chapter, much thanks to Rena, save for the last part where Erika was being so funny lol.
I ran into many problems while trying to push this chapter out.
Firstly, I had 0 motivation to work on it. Just the thought of Rena being such a slut just irritates me to no end. It was a good thing I finished it before I had a glance of Ch 26… Oh boy. Never mind Rena being dumb, Erika’s intellect is falling too.
Next, my trustworthy staff are disappearing… One by one, they’re getting more caught up with school, work, and life, in general.
Thirdly, my course in university turns out to be more stressful than I expected. I was waking up at 5.45am every day, and sleeping at 1 am every night. Never mind the stress; I don’t even have the time. My schedule is slightly better now, though I have to get so much studying done in short amounts of free time…
And that brings me to the “emotional” portion of this post. I will be bidding every one of you a farewell as of today.
Apart from the aforementioned reasons that prove the running of KSS to be more and more challenging, Shmook has informed me that she’s no longer interested in scanlating, and that included not purchasing the monthly Betsuma comics anymore. Never mind if I have to run the whole team myself; I can’t do it without scans. And she’s my best editor ever; I honestly can’t do this without her.
I’d honestly thought I’d be able to stick with this manga till the very end; but it’s getting a little draggy and annoying (at least, Rena is.) to the point I don’t even bother to check for the latest updates anymore. Where are the proper romantic development between Kyouya and Erika? Aren’t there any other way to develop the story apart from introducing increasingly loud and immature characters…?
Anyway, I’d just like to give a big shout out to all those regular readers who give us comments every single time without fail; you have no clue how much it heartens me (and us) to see our work being appreciated. It really motivated me to not give it up, if I could help it.
Anyway, as stated in my final page of the chapter below, Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji is now up for adoption by any scanlating team who can get their own raws, and (hopefully) produce scans of such quality.
Ookami Shoujo to Kuro Ouji has been my love and obsession (to some extent) for the past year and a half. And for Shmook, who raised it from the very beginning, it was her baby too. We’d really appreciate it if the quality is upheld by the next scanlating team (i.e. no sloppy cleaning/ text over existing words etc); that is our final and only wish for our baby. Just because we stopped scanlating doesn’t mean we (or at least, I) are no longer interested in it. :) I’ll still check back once in a while (if time permits) to update myself on the newest chapters.
Who knows, I might just do summaries/ finally get around to uploading the drama CD translations one day.
It’s really sad to say goodbye, and I’m really bad at it. So, let’s just say, “til we meet again”.
Cheers to everybody,
Michi (03/2012 – 08/2013)
