By the way...

Here's an awesome release for you. Thanks to Soraxi for working her butt off on editing. GO! READ! Oh yeah and I'd appreciate it if people went to the forums more. I'm thinking of completely moving CM there from the blog. Not sure yet...

Settle, settle everyone!

Hella! So I've made my Christmas list for CoyoMoose (we will be picking up these series anyway...):

  • Karigari! by Furukawa Shiori - Kirishima Mel seems like your ordinary high school girl. However, she is also part of a special investigation team called "K9" - under the direct control of the National Police Agency! With her katana in hand, Mel must take on serious incidents in secret. But what happens with this one incident-!?
  • Bambi to Dhole by Okaue Ai - Yukimi is her real name but everyone calls her Bambi. She is the student discipline committee member who locks students out of the school if they're a minute late, but sneaks cigarette breaks on the roof. Lone wolf (Dhole, Asiatic wild dog) transfer student Tetsu (everyone pronounces it Tooru) Nagasawa hops the fence after she locks it and breaks her cigarette in half when he finds her on the roof, but he's a super nice guy to a mother and baby on the train. Bambi already has a boyfriend but will the wolf steal her heart?
  • Ooki/Taiboku-sensei to Kosame-san by Furukawa Shiori - No idea what it's about yet, as I haven't found a summary ANYwhere...but it's by FS, so it has to at least have nice art. *cough*

If we could get donations for these series, so my family doesn't have to buy for me, I'd appreciate it. But, if not then we'll just wait until after Christmas. I'm really itching to see raws for Karigari -not the ones on raffmanga - those don't do it justice.

I have to order Karigari v1-2 and BtD v1-3 off cdjapan, and after shipping that would be $48 (1-3 business days shipping)

I'm ordering Karigari v3 and TsKs v1 off of yesasia, and with 2-5 business day shipping that's $35.

Honestly, I'd love it if we could get $100 in donations so I don't have to rely on those as being "Christmas presents" - I hate having family pay for CM stuff. But at the least $50 would be great so we can order from cdjapan and get started on all that greatness *ahem*

I've come up with a schedule!

Yes, for once in my life - I've made a schedule and plan to stick to it. Some of you may not be pleased....but understand this will make things easier on me and my real life issues.

  • FIVE - Since we only have 3 volumes left, I plan on doing a volume a month release. So, starting soon, we will release an entire volume on the very last day of each month. Since the holidays are fast approaching, the rest of volume 13 will be sporadic. Once 13 is finished, we will do the volume releases. 
  • Haigakura - This being my baby, I want to spend more time on it and make the quality "better" (meaning not rushing translations and edits...) However, this series is not complete yet, and we don't get any donations  so all of these purchases come out of my pocket. SO that being said, I will release a chapter on the first of every month. So, 12/1/14 will be our next release.
  • Gekijou Komori Uta - *sigh* This series has disappointed me. Alas, say goodbye. I'm sure someone like Chibi Manga will pick it up.
  • Jaguri - Well, we haven't even had a release of this yet, now have we? Well wait that's a lie...we did WAAAAAAAY back in the day. Our new releases will start once a month with FIVE, at the end of the month. As long as things are edited and whatnot on time, there may be  a release the end of this month. Not sure yet...
  • Mune ga Naru noha Kiminosei - This is another *sigh* for me. I picked it up because Chibi Manga was taking forever, but honestly I don't have the time for it. So, CoyoMoose will be saying goodbye to this series as well.

Now - I had been contacted last month about bringing Urushima Ryuuguu Emaki either back or scanning the raws for another group. With all these series I didn't think I'd have the time - however now that two of them are gone, I may bring URE back sooner than planned. That is, if the other group wants to make it a joint or not.

So I've done this once before, but I figured it's time for a quick "update" on Yukiko's (my) life:
I work in the retail/service industry - specifically PetSmart's Pets Hotel (and on the main floor where all the shopping happens.) I love my job, and would hate to leave it. However I make $8.88 an hour and have 23-28 hour work weeks. Want to know my last paycheck? $170...YEAH. A "good" paycheck for me is about $240 - if I'm lucky.

My shifts are all night shifts, 1-9pm or 12-8pm or 5-9pm....Five days a week. I usually get Tuesday and Sunday off but that varies. I live 30 minutes from my job and go through a $40 tank of gas a week. Awesome, right? Oh yeah and my car is falling apart, so let's say I spend $50 a month on repairs for the bastard. Ah and then there's my $1500 rent that's due the 7th of each month + my $93 car insurance that's due the 18th of each month.

That reminds me, I'm going to fail the emissions test that needs to be done by the 29th of this month.

Now we need to talk about food. Do I have a kitchen to cook in? Nope, so everything is microwavable or ordered pizza. Lord, I'm so sick of pizza...and I'm pretty sure my intestines are as well.

My dog needs his shots + to get neutered. Same with my kitten. I'm not even going to go in to the shit I need to buy for my dragons...Per month I probably spend about $70 on all of them (cat, dog, fish, and dragons.)

So here's where manga comes in. On my two days off, I will normally scan, translate, and edit about 5-10 pages depending on what series I'm working on. FIVE is going swiftly because A) it's easy to translate and B) I have two people who edit for this series alone.

On those days, I also need to find time to clean and spend time with my fiancee (he and I barely spend time together unless we're sleeping or passing each other on our ways to/from work.)

I'll continue bitching later...

Y'all better be thankful my boss gave me a 4-day weekend. AND the fact that my car is dead, so I can't drive to do my errands. *sigh* For now, here are a chapter of FIVE and Haigakura. Gekijou is up next thanks to our new editor Minoko :3 Oh plus another chapter of FIVE.

*hack hack*

I'm super sick, have been for a while. I have two things ready to go but I haven't been able to really move around much. Sorry!

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

So we missed our anniversary... like four months. So here's my idea: we wait til Halloween for a mass release, OR I release randomly throughout the month. Lemme know what you'd like done.

But just to say....DAMN IT'S BEEN NINE YEARS!!!! Where the hell did the time go...2005 - you're so far away XD
