I will preface this by saying I’m working on about half an hour of sleep, so in between all of this glorious E3 coverage and our newest project blowing my mind with its sheer, unfathomable amounts of moe (the good kind!), my head is pretty damn fuzzy.
THAT SAID. It’s been an extremely long time in the making, but I’m very proud to present the first chapter of Super Darling, the newest series by Aya Shouoto, the same lovely lady who brought us SLH, Barajou no Kiss, and Junketsu Kareshi. In the same breath, I apologize on behalf on the entire Turtle crew for the delay in getting this out. We were on track to keep a monthly pace, but things happened and it didn’t quite work out the way it should have. HOWEVER! We will be keeping a much stronger pace in the next few weeks thanks to a sizeable addition in the typesetting department, though we could do with a new editor or two.
Anyway, back to SuperD talk! It’s shaping up to be a strange (and magical) hybrid between SLH and Barajou (including a scene that feels like it could have been ripped right from the pages of SLH in chapter 3), and Sakuya is the greatest moe-bomb to ever grace this site, and I could not be more pleased to be able to share it with you guys today. SO SALLY FORTH, AND READ ON!
“And so the flower blooms, behold the beauty of nature!”
THIS CHAPTER WAS A LABOR OF LOVE BETWEEN ME AND MELLY AND IT WAS GLORIOUS. Special thanks to Fishiko!
On a related note, I recently discovered that we are (or were, I don’t know) about 24 hours away from getting Super Dan yanked out from underneath us. All I can really say is, please, if a series has a dedicated group already working on it, I think your attentions are better focused elsewhere, on series that haven’t gotten the same treatment. There is absolutely no reason there needs to be competition between groups when there are thousands of fantastic manga out there no one has even heard of.
WITH THAT SAID! Enjoy the chapter, readers, and I’m going to bed!
