Future Project Preview: Crow in the Starry Sky

Good morning pandas! After months of debating with myself, I've decided to pick up another side project. I first came across this series in a July issue of Hana to Yume, and it's pretty much stuck in my mind. The series is called Hoshizora no Karasu, AKA Crow in the Starry Sky. I've decided to share a one page color preview from that issue just for fun! ^.^

The series is about a young girl named Karasuma Waka, who was taught how to play Go by her grandfather. Unfortunate events occur and her mother wishes for Waka to never play Go. One day Waka meets a young pro Go player, Sagisaka Souji, which sets her on the path of playing Go professionally.

Go is something I've personally been attracted to since the series Hikaru no Go. If you haven't read that series, or seen the anime adaptation, I highly recommend it.

The first chapter of this series isn't quite ready yet, hence the preview. The first chapter is a whopping 62 pages, and including the color pages from the hana to yume issue, it's even more, lol. So yea, I'm like only halfway through the translations. But it's enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to releasing this project in the future!

Oresama Teacher Chapter 94

Ok, so this is what happens when you have a cold, get bored and have an obsession. LOL. Just finished chapter 94. So, there's a few things I want to say regarding this chapter.

First, I translated strictly from the Japanese, which I'm not the most fluent in. Usually I do both the Chinese and Japanese, because Chinese is easier for me to understand, but I still prefer the Japanese phrasing. So, that being said, the translations might not be as as spot on as the previous chapters. However, I think it's still pretty darn good. And considering this is my personal language project, I'd say I've done a pretty good job. :P

Secondly, this chapter is not presented in the same way previous chapters are. It's covers Yui's journey all the way back from chapter 52, and fast forwards to other points, working it's way up to the present. So it's almost disjointed, and might be confusing to some. Usually the chapters are all in the present with flashbacks. So, just keep this in mind!

Thirdly, we're all caught up with the Japanese releases! So, now we have to wait until the next release. Chapter 95 will be out in Japan on 4/5. So until then there's no more OT for me to work on. (sadface)

Until then, Download Oresama Teacher Chapter 94 here!

Oresama Teacher Chapter 93

Bet you guys weren't expecting the next chapter so soon! Hehe.  Surprise!

This chapter also has alot of excitement!  Chapter 94 was released in Japan today, so we're pretty close to them.  I wanted to get this chapter out ASAP, because unfortunately, I'm getting sick.  My daughter was sick all this week, and now I've finally gotten it.  So I know I'm gonna be down and out for at least a few days (boo!).  I didn't want to leave the chapter half finished and then come back after being sick and have everything discombobulated.

Anyhow, the cover of this issue of Hana to Yume was Oresama Teacher.  And inside was a 2 page spread of the character (popularity) rankings.  In case you can't tell, here they are:
