Chapter 15 did not and will not make tonight’s cut because I belatedly realized that the script has not even been PR’ed yet! 🙁 Our next release date is 5/14/2012. We’ll double it up with Ch.16 to make up for the delay. It’s a cliffhanger chapter, and would probably feel more like a complete release when partnered up with the next chapter, than if we were to put it out alone.
*kowtows for forgiveness*
Today’s releases are as follows:
Balancing Toy Volume 1, Ch.1: Lint, your wish is our command. 🙂 This is definitely NOT another Usagi Drop. I’m going to karate chop anyone who says otherwise. (Don’t think I won’t!) Haru and Seiji are the epitome of cute. Great for those shoujo/father-daughter-relationships lovers and haters, alike.

Sekine’s Love Volume 2, Ch.8-9: Two – that’s right, two – big doses of Sekine, laced with Doujima’s (the new guy’s) intercranial snark, comin’ right up! Get your heart meds ready. Those crocheted bears are way too cute!

What Revolves Around Al and Neri Ch.2: While there’s no “OMG! What the hell just happened?” / “Was he raped by a bear?!” gay sex in this chapter, there’s plenty of exposure for Neri and Carraro’s secretary. No, I don’t mean physically. Get your mind out of the gutter, yaoi freaks! :p

After a disastrous April, we (read: Me/Mimi/not Heels staff) have finally pulled ourselves together. I was a big mess, and the stress factor went up to my eyeballs, but thank you & much love to Lint, Shinkeikaku, Lilly,fionajude, Cathy, heehee, xlilim, ageha_chan, patapi and maedaa, and, of course, my gals & guys at Heels, for the “collective group hug”. Normally, I’d be like, “This is too cheesy! I’m outta here!” But this time it was much appreciated. Keri, hope you found yourself a good home remedy to cure that hangover.
I’m just waiting for a few pages of a few chapters from a few of our editors. Next week’s release will include these chapters, as promised:
Futago Ch.15-16 /end volume
Heartbroken Chocolatier Ch.1-3 /end volume
Nina My Love Ch.7 & Omake /end volume
Sakamichi no Apollo Ch.6
There may be more, *cough*Tokyo Alice*cough* but I’m afraid to make any promises (in case plans blows up in my face again).
Thank you very much for the first chapter of Balancing Toy!!! Really wanted to read this, thank you! <3
Balancing toy was confusing, ’cause I thought Seiji was still a high-schooler or something ^^
It’ very pretty though. Thank you for the release! As for the stress being over, well, life goes on and can’t be bad forever, nay?
aww sekine’s jealous! cute. thanks for the chapters!
Thanks so much for the releases! 😀
Wow! Chapter one of Balancing Toy was AMAZING!
Thanks so much and I’ll be looking forward to its next release!!
Thanks so much for the releases, you’ve no idea how much I love Sekine’s Love!
Hehe, Sekine-san, you finally realize you’ve some sort of emotion for the girl, don’t cha?
Balancing Toy seems to have quite an interesting start, I love the mangaka’s style of drawing, too!

actually, Aiji Yamakawa’s Stuff are eye-candy ♡
(thankies for double release for Sekine too!!!)
Looks wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing this, I really love this mangaka. Basso’s works are great.

Thank you for Sekine’s Love and Balancing Toy!
Here’s hoping May is much kinder to you and your family than April was!
I just about squealed when I saw that a series with an exclamation icon beside it appeared on Baka Updates. I appreciate your picking up Balancing Toy! (…and, of course, the mass release of many wonderful series.) Thanks, you bunch of hard-working
masochistsmanga enthusiasts. 😀
Thank you for the 2 chapters of Sekine! Your group is one of my favorite scanlators, and I am always looking forward reading your blog posts too. I really love your josei projects even though I mostly love seinen stuff. More Kawachi Haruka stuff please. XD
Thanks for the future double release of Futago.
At first I was confused when I read your comments for Balancing Toy. I thought maybe I had accidentally taken a name of a staff member and that I should probably try to change my username. I then went to staff page and didn’t see another Lint, and it then dawned on me that you were in fact actually talking about me XD **swoons**
I am extremely humbled to get a mention and thank you for making one of the little guys (like me) feel a part of your community! Major thanks and gratitude to you all your lovely staff members and their hard work! m(__)m
And I’m glad the situation with your car sort of worked out Hatsumimi. I can only imagine the amount of stress that put you under. My mother has gotten in a number of car accidents (she’s been lucky and come through safely on all of them), but every single time it’s happened, it’s been scary, stressful, and worrisome. I’m glad you can finally close this chapter to your life and it’s on to greener fields and pastures! 😀
Now, I’m off to satiate my fetish by reading Balancing Toy! **squeeeeeeeeeeee** Thank you, thank you to your staff again!
Thank you for the (double, no less!) release for Sekine! *delivers hugs all round*
And thanks for everything else too! You guys are just amazing!
