It's definitely not cold anymore.

Well helloooooo there. I've been crazy busy, like usual. However, I have come upon a new job with better hours, so I will be able to get working on our main series again.

I'm mainly writing this as a shout-out for a lot of the Sensei ha Ore no Mono fans. I've had a few people email me recently, asking to have the series active again. Some of you may recall why I stopped releasing the series: I'm not a fan of it. Also, we didn't have a lot of feedback on Senmono anyway. However, the amount of emails I have received lately have brought me here, to ask for your help. If we can get a translator, cleaner, and typesetter to work specifically on this series, I have no problem scanning the raws and QC'ing.

So, if anyone is interested in helping out, email me at banvi_nohime@ymail.com or message me on the CM facebook page.

For everyone else who is wondering WTF has taken me so long with Haigakura, I'M GETTING THERE - it's 85 pages. I'm flying solo, and also work in real life. What would be awesome, is if I could get some help (translating or editing) on Haigakura. I think that's all for now *sigh* So here's a dose of cuteness for your day, and why not like the page while you're at it! They're my real life four-legged kids.

Snuggle buddies.

Wow...

It's been a while, right? Well between our last release and now, I was fired from Home Depot. Has curiosity captured you? Well let's just say, never say a co-worker isn't doing their job. Ahem, anyway, welcome to summer! It's a stifling 90 degrees Fahrenheit here in Maryland. I've decided I'm just going to summarize the rest of FIVE for y'all...because I'm PRETTY SURE we all know where this is going, right? *sigh* Anyway, now that I'm unemployed, I'm going to get back to working on Haigakura. You guys need to understand, I was working 6 days a wk, with shifts that started at 9 AM and got me home at 9 PM. My days off consisted of running errands; hence no time to work on the beloved manga.

Anyways, I'm going to put on the Dirty Dancing 2 soundtrack and begin the summaries! Ciaosu!

Random...

So today was the first full shift for me at my new job, Home Depot (for those of you who don't know, it's a home improvement store, so a lot of hardware and garden stuff etc) and I have to say I am woooorn out. I left PetSmart a couple weeks back, and knew I was going to miss seeing animals all the time at my workplace...BUT then today, we had about 10 dogs come in during my 9 hour shift! I was so happy, and found out that this is common at my store :)

Anywho, this is a snippet from my day that any retail employee would enjoy...

Lady: (she's speaking in a heavy Asian accent btw, so it's hard to understand her, plus she's angry) I came in yesterday and a lady told me this would work for sticking the bricks together at my house. *shows me and co-worker a clear silicon caulk meant for indoors* She said it was supposed to be clear, but when I woke up today it was white! You know, my daughter just had a baby and I don't have time to deal with fixing this because it's already stuck on there! My friend got me drunk the other night and I broke my toe too! Why did this come out white and not clear!? I even put plastic over it so it wouldn't get wet from the rain.
Me: Oh wow, sorry to hear that! Yes it does say it should be clear, but it may not have fully dried since you put plastic over the bricks, and it was muggy out after the rain
Coworker: Also, this is meant for indoor use, not outdoor. I'm sorry she misinformed you, let's see what will- *gets cut off*
Lady: It's supposed to be CLEAR! Don't you understand, I broke my toe and my daughter had a baby and I'm leaving tomorrow for a trip so I don't have time for this! Why is it white and not clear!?
My co-worker and I exchange the "I see how this is going to go" look...
Me: It was probably a chemical reaction- *gets cut off*
Lady: Let me talk to a man, he'll know what to do,
Me: *has to turn away to laugh quietly in my sleeve*
Coworker: Okay give me a moment. *she had to literally bite her tongue to not snap at the woman*
My coworker comes back with a guy from the paint department...
Guy: Okay so since this isn't meant for outdoor use. Also, since you covered it, the caulk didn't dry fully so that's another reason it isn't clear.
Lady: Yes okay but I need to to be CLEAR! What do I do now, I'm leaving and I broke my toe, I can't fix this by myself.
Guy: Here, let me get you set up with a service request and we will have a contractor come out and help you fix the bricks with this *shows proper product*
Lady: Yes but I broke my toe, look! *takes off shoe to show broken toe*
Us: .....
Me: Wow that looks painful.
Lady: Yes so will this stuff come out clear?
Coworker: Yes.

She continues to talk to the guy while my co-worker and I slowly inch away since we had been in the middle of doing something in the back. Later on, the guy came over and told my co-worker that he was going to get her for that. She laughed and I said "Well I was the one who pulled her away." He laughs and says it's ok since I'm new. (mind you he was joking about 'getting her.') I was tempted to ask her if she spoke Japanese so we could communicate that way, since she was having a hard time speaking English and we could barely understand her lol.

*sigh* Retail life...

F-I-N-A-L-L-Y!

I know, you're all probably thinking the same thing. "Did she fall off the face of the earth, are they closing? WHAT IS GOING OOOOON!? WHERE IS MY MANGA!!!"

Well, a lot of bullshit happened. Liiiike, I had to get a new job because PetSmart (the store I worked at) is going through hell. My car is falling apart, so all in all a lot of stress. However today I was hired at Home Depot, which means money to fix my car and pay rent! Yay!

Anywhoooo...I'm tired and I know you're all not caring about this post. Tonight I've released ch 25 of Haigakura for your enjoyment. Woot woot...

The end. ♥ Yukiko

X_X

Sorry, I've got to make this a quick post. I had a few days off, but that was just from my job. Shit went down which I am still dealing with. I just wanted to let everyone know that we are still alive and hopefully I will have a release on Christmas X_X
