I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving (US peeps!), is getting some great holiday shopping deals (<3), and is having fun prepping for Christmas!
If you don't remember the significance (backstory) between the pairs facing off in this chapter, seriously, go re-read the first five volumes. Or read the character guide that we toss in the beginning of every chapter :) More Jinjuu in 2 weeks~
UPDATE: I'm obviously running late (blame it on trying to clean up a hoarder's house well enough for holiday company...). Things will get back on track eventually :)
So! Things are still hectic on my end (no end in sight, to that >.>), but I think I'll be able to keep to our pace of every other week for releases again. Expect Jinjuu for our next release! And well, Pure Blood will be coming up soon, too... =D
Pure Blood (ピュア ブラッド) by Aoki Akane (あおきあかね)
2 volume series, published in Japan from 2007-2008
Genre: Warm and Fuzzy Action-Packed quasi-Victorian Vampire-fest (super-slashy)
Summary: Leon is a pure blood vampire, able to suppress his instinctual desire for blood and live amongst humans due to his deterrent, Noah. Bearing a seal that complements Leon's, Noah holds Leon's power in check. However, Noah's own powers are oddly unstable. This is their story.
Notes: Chapter 1-5 were released by Storm in Heaven.
Chapter 6: QC
Chapter 7: QC
Chapter 8: QC
All that said, Rogue's been chugging away at the scripts I finished before the move, so there are 5+ chapters done already. It's just going to be a tad before I can get anything released! (For anyone being paranoid: No, we're not dropping any projects, and yes, we plan to keep releasing them as soon as we can.)
I'll edit this post with updates as things progress and I get a better idea how long it'll be!
As an aside, I'm in the middle of packing and moving (new job again!).
All that said, hearts go out to madamada_chan, who lent me all five MT volumes to scan, and flutterbyfrog, who joined the team specifically to clean up the MT raws and make editing easier. This project wouldn't be happening so quickly without them!
And Jinjuu Houretsuden v05 c28 ends the volume! We've just about hit the awesomeness that are the final battle scenes =D I actually recommend that everyone re-reads the first five volumes before reading our next releases (volume 6). You've got like 4 weeks, and trust me... you'll want it all fresh in your memory once all the final fights start happening ;)
That said! The next two weeks will be Moon Trick releases. So no more Jinjuu for a bit!
Also, we will be finishing off Pure Blood! This barely counts as a project, since it was all scanned and translated for Storm in Heaven (remember: Bamboo Feathers is an SiH splinter group). Rogue's just going to edit it up and we'll release those couple chapters. (Incidentally, fans of Morimoto Shuu should like Pure Blood, they're pretty similar in atmosphere =D) Expect those final chapters in... I dunno, maybe like two months? =D
Also, future project update! We're pretty sure we're going to pick up Ryuu no Yuigon down the line. Before we go buying the books, does anyone have them? Leave me a PM or email me at email@example.com if you're up to scanning, or willing to ship to me so I can scan. Thanks!
