    Anyone know what this manga is called?

    Those images are from the manga "Rakuen Route". https://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=4165 Unfortunately, we dropped it several years ago (due to lack of staff, if I recall). Transient Mirage picked it up for one chapter afterward, but it looks like they didn't continue with it either, sadly. ^^" I don't know what the one described in the second post is though. Sorry. >.<

    Masca Questions

    Thanks. We'll try to get that figured out. As I said, I'm not super familiar with Masca, personally, but I'll try to figure it out when I have the time or see if someone else is available to do so. ^^ I can't promise how soon that'll be, but we'll do our best~ XD

    Masca II: Kings

    @Viz: I responded to your question in the Masca thread. Sorry for the delay. ^^"

    Masca Questions

    Hi, Viz~ Thanks for letting us know. I personally have only worked on one chapter of Masca: The Beginning and am pretty much unfamiliar with the rest. However, most of our other admins/department heads are either busy or away at the moment, so I'm addressing your question for the time being. ^^ We'd like to translate and add those pages in if we missed them, but it would be helpful if you could give is some indication of where they should be (as in, which masca series - the original, The Beginning, or The Kings; which volume; and, if possible, which chapter or a general idea of which page) so our translators will have context and so we'll know where to put them when they're done (since, in all likelihood, if we didn't release them initially, they may have been somehow omitted from our raws). Please let us know that information or just give us a link to where you found the pages you posted here (actually please give us that link anyway so that we might make sure we're not missing anything else). Thanks~

    Non Non Biyori

    I am so very sorry for all the delays, as they are mostly my fault as the proofreader. >.< I've had an array of personal issues getting in the way and have just kept this on hold for so long. >.< Anyway, I should have the extra at the end of volume 3 finished tonight or tomorrow, and I'll be trying to have the next 2 chapters done over the next week or so. After that it'll be up to editing and QCing, so I can't say how long that will take, but the major thing that's been holding it up (me >.<) is hopefully not going to be doing so anymore. ^^" Again, suuuuper sorry for all the delays, but please wait a bit longer and some chapters should appear. ^^"

  12. The head translator will send you a test. ^^ She's in the UK, so she's likely asleep right now, and I'm not sure if she has to work tomorrow, but you should get your test via private message here on the forum probably sometime tomorrow (though it might be tomorrow evening or even the next day, depending on her schedule). Also, we appreciate your enthusiasm, but please try not to double or triple post like you just did (I consolidated your 3 posts into one). ^^"

    Evyione

    We greatly appreciate the offer, but I believe we've actually got the staff for this particular project pretty set already (something could change in the future, but it's been the same staff for quite a long while, so it'll probably remain so). ^^ However, you could always apply to join the staff and work on other projects, which could potentially take some of the workload from the ones working on Evyione and thus speed up its progress as well. Just visit our recruitment area on the forum. As a side note, it shouldn't be *too* much longer before the first part of chapter 51 is released (probably not more than a couple of weeks would be my guess, depending on how things go).

    Happy Halloween! :D

    Each one had a suggestion for a place that was rumored to be scary: the local graveyard, an old haunted cottage, a supposedly enchanted forest, and an abandoned candy corn factory. They quickly agreed that although the abandoned candy corn factory would probably be spooky and might still have edible candy corn in it since that stuff never seems to expire until the end of time, it might have dangerous equipment in it, so they shouldn’t go there (plus they all already had tons of candy corn from parties and trick or treating before this anyway). A few rounds of rock-paper-scissors helped them to decide between the remaining three options. “To the enchanted forest!” they said in unison, and began their journey into the unknown. As they walked through the forest, they felt like it really must be enchanted after all. The trees seemed alive, and it always felt like there were curious eyes watching them pass by. After a while, they started noticing some strange lights. At first they chalked it up to fireflies, but they soon realized that the lights were gradually getting larger and seemed to have vague star shapes. The little stars seemed to dance around the youngsters and urge them forward, as though they were leading them to something… The youngsters were thrilled! They eagerly followed the little lights and eventually found themselves in front of a magnificent (and spooky!) castle. As they stood at the edge of the forest and stared in awe at the castle to which the lights had led them, a couple of them began to doubt whether or not they should really proceed… It looked beautiful but ominous… Was it someone’s house? Would the owners be bothered by their intrusion? What if it was really haunted?! But a spooky and scary adventure was what they had been seeking, after all, and it wouldn’t be right to ignore what was in front of them after the enchanted forest’s lights had led them there… They decided to proceed down the path and enter the castle anyway. At the castle gate they saw an array of jack-o’-lanterns and some people who seemed to be witches or fairies of sorts. The gate guardians seemed to be in a good mood and let the youngsters pass. Once inside, they discovered a huge gathering with all sorts of unusual creatures! There were werewolves and vampires and ghosts and goblins, witches and fairies and genies, mummies and trolls and even some talking cats! Scattered across the room were tables with an array of treats. Some of the treats looked like they might not be meant for human consumption, actually… The youths decided to join the friendly-looking people (at least most of them looked like people…) at the first table they saw with empty seats. The people and creatures at the table all spoke in a peculiar way. Everything they said was rhythmic and sounded rather like verses out of a children’s book. After getting used to the unusual manner of speaking, the youngsters started to realize what the partygoers were talking about… “Such silly creatures, these humans, they are~” “You agree, I see? It’s true, I say! Each year before and again this time, they don curious, puerile garb and claim names such as ‘troll’ and ‘witch’. They mock us, no doubt!” “If ever I were to meet such a disrespectful creature as a human, I would place it in a cage and teach it to mind its manners! It would see then that we are not to be trifled with!” “You newcomers there, you agree, do you not?” The decidedly human adventurers were stunned and quite scared now. “Y…Yes…?” one of the youths managed to stutter before realizing how much more suspicious this made their group. The regular partygoers slowly stopped their conversation and analyzed the new guests further. Although they blended in at a glance, upon further inspection, noting their clear nervousness, the partygoers realized with growing horror that their new guests were the very strange things that they tried so hard to avoid… “HUMANS!” someone shouted. The youngsters were terrified! They ran aimlessly through the castle, with every manner of mysterious creature on their heels! Somehow they managed to elude their pursuers, but before they realized it, they’d run down a corridor into a place that seemed like an entirely different realm! They found themselves faced with a rather mischievous-looking little witch, a quite sentient-looking cat, a strange lounging skeleton, and several other oddities. The little witch held up a small cage and said: “So you’re the ones causing all this ruckus, is that so? Hmm, what was it again that I do with creatures who disturb my celebration and relaxation… What say you, friends?” “That cage, my lady, was for disruptive intruders, I believe?” replied the cat. “I care not what becomes of them, they might as well leave~” the skeleton yawned. The witch thought for a moment. “A tradition in your world, I hear, involves tricks and treats. Little humans, decide your fates. If you can trick me, I may let you go… or I may not~ Perhaps a treat would sate my ire at this disturbance, but I doubt you have anything I would possibly desire. That aside, you couldn’t trick me if you tried, but you might entertain me a bit, at least~” The youngsters spoke frantically amongst themselves about their predicament. They came up with several trick ideas but none of them seemed sufficient. Just when they started to despair, the little witch floated towards them and sniffed the air a bit. Her expression became contemplative… “Could it be…?” she muttered. The humans looked at her in confusion. Suddenly, from their pockets floated the little bags of candy corn they’d gotten earlier in the evening before the embarked on their adventure. The bags floated over to the witch. “OH IT IS! IT IS!” the little witch flew around excitedly in circles, crying out in delight. “Ages and ages! So long it has been since I’ve seen this confection! The sweetness! The waxy texture! Oh how I’ve missed it so!!!” The scene looked a little bit like this: The youths were beyond perplexed by this witch’s reaction to candy corn. As she continued flying around the room in glee, the cat sighed and explained that the little witch had once visited the human world and had some candy corn. Ever since then, it was all she thought about at this time each year. She’d always avoid the castle’s main party in favor of this realm of hers because the castle’s treats made her miss candy corn far too much. The cat thanked the humans for making the little witch happy, and the skeleton grumbled that she was being too loud for him to nap any more. The cat kindly opened the way and allowed the youths to leave the realm and return to the castle. He told them that if they continued walking to the other end of the corridor, they would find a library which may or may not have something of great interest to them. The youngsters continued forward and entered the door at the end of the corridor as the cat had told them. Worried that their earlier pursuers might still be after them, they quickly shut and locked the door behind them before taking a look around. What they found when they did look around was simply amazing! Books of all kinds, in all languages, everywhere! None of them had ever imagined such a fantastic and wonderful place could exist in this world! Their excitement was somewhat stifled, however, when they noticed an ethereal form floating in the middle of the room. She didn’t seem threatening, but after what they’d seen that night, they were wary… The figure spoke: “I am but a shadow of old times long gone. I watch over this place, as well as I’m able, from ages past and for ages to come. All are welcome here, be you human or no. This haven has something for all, so do not be shy. Explore and find your place, learn and enjoy, relax and be safe. You are my guest while you are here, so stay as long as you wish~” The young adventurers stared in awe at the library and the form of this friendly guardian. They looked around at one another and silently decided that they’d gotten plenty of spooky, scary action, just as they’d hoped (more than they’d hoped, in fact), and that some nice relaxing reading seemed like the perfect activity to end their night. They wandered about and gradually picked out different things to read. One found an intriguing horror story, another a tale of magic and wonder in far-away lands, another settled in with a fairy tale, and the last found a more modern story involving technology. As they read and read in the mystical library, the each eventually drifted off to sleep… The next morning, the intrepid youths awoke in their costumes at the forest’s edge. The castle they’d been in the night before was nowhere to be seen! They wondered if they’d imagined it all… But then they found they still had the books they’d been reading in the castle’s library! Satisfied with their amazing Halloween adventure, they set off on their way home, vowing to remember this forever and hoping to one day find their way back~ Story by: ayne & Melita_H Happy Halloween: Ciel v20 ch20g Platinum Garden v13 ch54 Toshi Densetsu v03 ch12 Yamatonadeshiko Shichihenge v33 ch133 Chronicles of the Grim Peddler v03 ch14 Spam Mail Hunter v08 ch31 P.S.: Please note that downloads will be available in two days.

    Bird Feeder Contest

    Good it made it through the rain, at least. XD Hope some birds have used it by now or will use it soon~ Also, a few days late, but... I finally made mine! 8D I got a bit carried away with the multicolored sharpies, so it's different on every side (which means I also got carried away with taking pictures of every side ). I think I may have regressed to age 12 while making this, haha, but oh well, it's pretty and colorful and stuff, I think. And then, right before I was about to post these picture, it occurred to me that birds probably need somewhere to sit while they eat, so I went and grabbed a small piece of wood from the tree out front. 8D I might replace it with a twig perch that's a little longer (and either also put it through the other side so it's more stable or adhere it in some other way), but this was the best one I could reach at the moment. ^^" Now I just need some bird seed and a place to put it.

    10 reasons for being late.

  24. There lived a lemur. This lemur went by the name of Loretta. Since her idyllic childhood in Lemuria and her top-notch education at the Lemurian Time Out School and the University of Lemurian Studies (Bulgarian Campus), Loretta had led a life of adventure. She’d traveled the world, hobnobbed with celebrities, met people from all walks of life, had an array of interesting jobs, eaten foods of all kinds, lived both in luxury and in squalor, and enjoyed every manner of interesting thing that struck her fancy. But, after this lifetime of adventure, she was finally ready to settle down, at least for a bit. While wandering the world one day, she suddenly found herself in a magical grove of cranberry trees with a sea of flowers in the middle. She thought this was odd since cranberries don’t normally grow on trees, but, being a lemur, she quite liked trees, and the cranberries were tasty, so she just chalked it up to magic and went with it. There was also a nice little collection of bookshelves in the middle of the grove. Ever the art-lover, she grabbed an especially pretty manhwa and went to hang out in one of the trees. As Loretta nommed on some cranberries and read the manhwa she'd picked up, she noticed a group of sloths on the other side of the grove slowly making their way out of the trees and into the meadow. She thought they must be going to get some reading material to accompany their own cranberries, but, much to her surprise, they started doing jumping jacks! In all her travels, Loretta had never seen such a thing! She watched curiously as the sloths did their surprisingly lively exercises. After the troupe of sloths finished their jumping jacks, they started pulling desks and computers out of the flowers and appeared to be working attentively on something. It was at this point that Loretta noticed that some of the sloths looked rather cat-like… Others looked more fox-ish, one looked a bit like both a cat and a potato (somehow…), and yet another had some panda features and what looked like little fins… There were even a few that looked like cake! She also noticed that something about the flowers in their general vicinity looked a little sinister, but it all seemed friendly enough despite that, so she didn't let it bother her. After watching the sloths work for a bit, Loretta went back to reading her manhwa, and when she finished the volume she was reading, she was eager for the next. She went back to the bookshelves to find the next volume, but it wasn't there! She was distraught and wondered who she had to blame for this travesty! Loretta noticed that there were a few new manga and manhwa books there now than there had been when she originally picked up her manhwa, but she didn't care since the volume she wanted wasn't there. She also noticed that there were a number of chinchillas with little red pens running around fixing the newly arrived books; though she was a little puzzled by this (as it happens, Loretta's annual rock-climbing trip has always been on Chinchilla Appreciation Day, so she was out of the loop on this subject), she was too busy thinking about her manhwa to contemplate it too much. Since the chinchillas were moving between books too quickly for her to flag one down and ask, she went to the sloths to see if they knew where the rest of her manhwa was. Just as Loretta was about to ask one of the cake-sloths if any of them knew where she could find more of her manhwa, she noticed what was on that particular sloth’s computer screen… it was her manhwa! The things that the sloths were working so hard on after their jumping jacks were manga, manhwa, and manhua! Despite all her knowledge and experience, Loretta had had no idea that so much work went into things like this… Loretta decided that this pleasant cranberry grove was a nice place to be, and resolved to wait patiently for the rest of her manhwa, knowing that the sloths would have it done as soon as they were able. From that day on, she spent much of her time in the grove, occasionally bringing the sloths snacks while they worked and talking to them on their breaks; she even tried to learn to help them out with their work! However, since her lemur fingers didn't work so well on the computer keys, she ended up just sticking with the giving of snacks and encouragement, but she also told some of her friends about the sloths’ work and suggested they try to help out as well. And they all lived happily ever after~ By the personal request of Loretta so as not to disturb the sloths’ focus, we can’t show you a picture of the grove in question. We can, however, show you this nice other grove, which is near the aforementioned cranberry grove and is also magical. If you actually read that entire thing, I applaud you~ In other news, Evil Flowers is still recruiting. We could especially use some translators and at least one super amazing proofreader (the chinchillas will appreciate this as well). We’re also recruiting cleaners, full editors, and quality checkers. As always, thanks for your support, and we appreciate any comments or help you may have to offer. So without further ado, here are today’s releases~ Chronicles of the Grim Peddler v03 ch12 Ciel v20 ch20c Kiss & Never Cry v05 v29 Meiji Hiiro Kitan v04 ch15 [Joint with Aerandria.
