Long-Form Oneshot: "Tasogare Renren" ("Longing for Dusk") by Nari Kusakawa

This oneshot originally appeared as the feature oneshot in Aka Lala last year.  We've been sitting on it for a while and finally got up the courage to take it on a couple of weeks ago.  It helped that the oneshot was released in the "Boku no Hitsugi de Bansan wo" ("Shall we have Dinner in my Coffin") short story compilation.  Having the tankoubon version saved us a lot of time cleaning.

On a side note, included in the short story compilation are "Boku no Hitsugi de Bansan wo" and "Shinobigoto", both of which we have already translated. Please check them out! The remaining oneshot in the compilation is the pre-sequel to "Tasogare Renren", which we will release next week!

If you would like to purchase your own copy of "Boku no Hitsugi de Bansan wo", here are some links: Amazon JP / YesAsia ($6.99 at YesAsia! Shipping is $3.99 or remember, there's free shipping with purchases over $25!)

Moving on!  This is a lovely oneshot! It got high praise from the proofreaders, so I hope you will enjoy it too.

And now on to the release!

I consider any oneshot over 50 pages to be a long-form oneshot. We've actually done quite a few in the past. I enjoy them quite a bit and hope to be able to translate more in the future.  Good ones are hard to come by, though.

Next up might be Magnolia??? Haha! If not, I guarantee that it was be something in the Halloween spirit, so please look forward to our next release!
