"Yukarism" Chapter 12 and Chapter 1 - 11 Catch-up!

After more than a year, "Yukarism" has finally resumed! If you need a refresher or are new to the series, links to past chapters will be included with this release.

As for the chapter itself, the images look more hand drawn than before the hiatus. It's nice and more more personal looking. Anyhow... part of the goods are delivered in this chapter which will make fans very happy. It's a cute chapter.

And now on to the release!

"Lily" Chapter 6 (End)

LINKS ARE NOW CORRECT

And now we come to the final chapter of "Lily", though I don't think the story is over. Rather it'll be continued in Magnolia. (Hopefully this means we'll get longer Magnolia chapters.) It's no big guess what happens here after the sudden entrance of Dr. McCreepy-Pants in last chapter. Still what Saiga has to say to this creeper is fresh (at least to me.)

So without saying much more, here's the release!

"Magnolia" Chapter 31

It's my birthday, so what better way is there to celebrate on Omari's Sister than with the release of an epic Hugo chapter from my current favorite series? This chapter is a nail biter! Robert(a) has stepped into a hornet's nest and I'm honestly scared for her T_T. Hugo is INTENSE! I felt a little of Daniel Craig's James Bond coming off of Hugo in this chapter. Anyhow, those of you who love Hugo will read this chapter over and over endlessly, and those of you who hate Hugo may actually put your fists through your monitors, tablets, or phones. I don't think there's a way to have neutral reaction to this chapter. Oh, and then there's the LOVELY surprise at the end. I'm thinking about changing my Ayato ship now because of the past few chapters.

I don't know how Naked Ape is going to top this chapter going forward.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did. And now onto the release!

"Magnolia" Chapter 30 Version 2

Update 5/17/2013:  There were a few translation errors in the first version. The errors don't change the story, but a couple of conversations are now clearer. We're sorry for the errors, but as usual, when we become aware of errors, we fix them.  So here's version 2!

Also since the URL of the blog entry changed, the comments that were already made were lost.  I cut and pasted them from the history on Disqus so they can still be read.
---------------------------------
 Things will be a little slow for the next couple of weeks as many of our members are taking finals and preparing for graduation. Still things are chugging along nicely and Magnolia chapter 31, Lily chapter 6, and Yukarism chapter 12 will be coming out very soon.

This chapter begins the Masquerade Party Arc. This chapter is rather short and acts more as a set up for the showdown in chapter 31 (Chapter 31 is truly brilliant).  Think of this as the comedy break before the crap goes down in the next chapter. Hollier's mask... *shakes head in pity*  But in many ways, I imagine most us relate greatly to Hollier -- out of place and AWKWARD. I know that's true of me. I can't help but cheer her on, though I don't know to what end.  I just want her to somehow "win". Maybe I want her to become Ayato's best friend outside of Lily???

Onto the release!

"Rex Fabula" Chapter 9

Recruitment:  We need volunteers for all positions (Critical need for redraw artists).  If you are interested, please see our recruitment page (LINK)
-----------------------------------------
Finally, we're back to some more action in "Rex Fabula". Instead of removing and redrawing the sound effects, I decided that it would be best to leave them in Japanese because they look like they are part of the artwork and to save up time because there are more than enough redraws involved in dialog and narration alone.  We will continue subtitling the sound effects for rest of the series for these reasons.

I don't like Shion. 'Nuff said.

In this chapter we start to get a glimpse of why Imose fears women, and it's awful and humiliating. I really don't want to know anymore because I have a feeling that it's something disturbingly sick. I think it would be nice if he could get over his fear and give someone like Yuzuha a chance. Despite her issues, she seems like she'd be a nice and loyal girlfriend.

Honestly, right now, I just want to see if Kurumisawa is ever going to confess to Homare and whether Homare would even give her time of day. I think he's too wrapped up in himself to even truly be friends with someone, let alone falling in love with someone. Still I'd like to see him crack. But... maybe actually becoming a real friend to someone is part his journey. That would be a nice character progression to see. I'd like for him to do something for somebody because he wants to and not because he's expecting something in return later.

If we aren't able to release chapter 10 in June, then expect another 3 chapters (10, 11, and 12) in July.

Onto the release!

We Need You! Omari's Sister is Recruiting!

Three of our redraw artists have left the group, so if you can led us a hand redrawing and clone stamping that would be great! We are now preparing for July and August.
-----------------------------------
We are recruiting for summer break! If you don't have time while school is in session, then perhaps you can lend us a hand during school breaks.  We will be doing many oneshots and short series during the summer and the second half of 2013.  As usual we need Japanese to English translators and redraw artists. Cleaners and a new batch of proofreaders/QCers are welcomed too. For more information, please see our recruitment page HERE.

"Rex Fabula" Chapter 8

We reach the halfway point of the story with this chapter. Most of the characters have now been introduced, though, I'd say the five  shown here are probably the main characters.

I really like the dynamic between Yuzuha and Kotoko.  They show how both of their character archetypes are strong. Yuzaha is scrappy and uninhibited and Kotoko is elegant and reserved. Looking at later chapters, it looks like they have a lot more story together :).

We're slowly plugging our way through. I hope to release chapter 9 by the end of next week.  The next three chapters will come after our anniversary festivities.

Onto the release!
