so uhhh I forgot?

So yeah this chapter should have been out 2 weeks ago, but due to unforeseen circumstances (I forgot it was there) and well here we are. Here’s another chapter of HENSHIN so the project is indeed alive and well! Not as alive as what I said months ago, but alive all the same!

Also I forgot to mention in the previous release, but batoto is dead. Shame that it died, but was fun while it lasted! Luckily Mangadex seems to be stepping up to the plate and so far it’s looking good!

PS: As always responses are much appreciated. If nothing else it’s nice to know our work is appreciated.


getting old!

Ugh getting too old for this. I mean sure we really do want to finish this manga and we’re determined to do so, but man it’s one hell of a slugfest. Such a difficult manga do to, but we persevere anyway cause WE HAVE TO PROTECT THAT SMILE…or something.

Anyway enough rambling. Here’s Crest13. Hopefully we can get past baron douchebag’s story arc already and get some nice planetside action. There’s a reason Jinto and Lafiel are both the protagonists even though essentially Crest/Banner of the Stars is Lafiel’s story narrated by Jinto. Want to get to that part already!

9 Years (2 days) and counting!

So we wanted to get this chapter out on the 23rd to celebrate 9 years of NL and of course the most glorious of holidays, Festivus. That obviously didn’t happen due to reasons so here we are today. Still odd to think we’re still (slowly) churning out chapters to this day, but well I suppose that’s what happens when you limit yourself on projects you’re actually interested in. As always we’re not sure what the future holds, but Crest of the Stars will be completed barring life altering circumstances that will cause us to close shop…knock on wood.

So yeah Merry Christmas everyone. May we see the glorious wordpress snow effect a year from now as well to celebrate 10 years of (subpar) NL scanlations!

daily double

Well more like I completely forgot about this Henshin chapter and just went ahead with a double alongside Crest. So there’s that…Anyway here’s a couple of chapters. Read. Enjoy. And I think I was told to mention not to expect another chapter of HENSHIN at least until December? Well we’ll see…

And as always words of gratitude for our releases are much appreciated! Good to know people are enjoying it even though that’s just a pleasant side effect of our work.

So this chapter was supposed to be out roughly…a week ago? Well delays plus more delays on top of important business waifu delays and here we are. Anyway end of Crest v2 and probably the fastest we’ve completed an entire tank so far…maybe? Also next chapter of henshin should be out soon.

well this was unexpected?

So here’s a chapter of Baby Princess…which I’m pretty sure fell off into the abyss a year or so ago, but then the corpse of Harrstein and evidently Tirawrmisu joined forces and resurrected this? I mean hell even Mignonette rose from the ashes to offer some proofreading…ACTUAL PROOFREADING! Like a mini NL reunion on this chapter…

Dunno if this will actually be a regular thing but evidently they’re still working on it so who knows?

Just for reference, the (partial) translation was posted on: Thu Sep 13, 2012 11:41 pm. So yeah…

So the eclipse came and went…

And well…nothing really much to say about it if you weren’t in the path of totality. Anyway here’s two chapters, 1 for Crest and 1 for Henshin. Releases haven’t been as fast as expected, but hey at least it’s going at a somewhat regular pace. Those that have been reading our stuff over the years should know that’s probably the best you can hope for!
