Title:Barajou no Kiss (Kiss of the Rose Princess)
Author: Shouoto Aya (????)

Status: Complete, and Available LEGALLY, IN PRINT, from Shoujo Beat! (Be sure to preorder!)

Most girls are crazy about jewelry, but not Anis Yamamoto. Not since her father gave her a rose choker as a child, claiming it was a protective amulet which would safeguard her from harm; however, if she ever took it off (a feat easier said than done!), she would be afflicted by a “punishment” of some sort- not like it matters to her, since the attention it attracts around school from faculty and students alike isn’t something she’s particularly fond of. But after a certain incident causes the choker to disappear, she realizes that this punishment her father spoke of might have been a bit more than she bargained for!

I’ll look 4ward 2 ur nxt chapter on a Monday! Mwahahaha…. “Mutsuki desires… THE SANDWICH. HAHAHAHAHA” quoted from Melfra and Clov3r, lol. Yays!

  8. Melfra says:

    Is turtle paradise closing down just like
    Please tell me its not!

    I don’t see why we would. We obviously don’t advocate piracy, and the Datenroku scans will be going down as the volumes are released. But aside from that, if ever we are asked to remove these translations, we’d do so without a second’s hesitation.

    That being said, we’re all (well, Reb and I are, at least) extremely excited about the OpenManga project. I don’t care if I have to pay money to scanlate, it sounds wonderful!

  9. Melfra says:

    Could you please tell us more about the
    OpenManga project? I’m also curious to know when chapter 18 of
    Barajou No Kiss is coming out and where I can get all four volumes?

    You can read about OpenManga here, but to make things short, these guys are hoping to partner with manga artists to release their works digitally with both paid and free viewing for readers, and then options to pay a fee to scanlate, with a chunk of proceeds going to the authors. They do a much better job explaining it on that site than I could, but we’re pretty excited for it! There are apparently already a few artists who’ve agreed to be a part of it, but only time will tell how this all pans out. I wish them the best~

    As for Barajou 18, well, I can’t say much more than it’ll be done when the people working on it finish there parts. Sorry, I don’t know more than that =X

    As for where to purchase the volumes, you can find them on this link should help you out a bit. Their shipping can be quite pricy, though. I found another online retailer that carries the books, but as my first order is still being processed, I’m hesitant to recommend them just yet. After I learn a little more, I’ll be updating the projects pages to include links where you can purchase the volumes online.

    Hope that answered your questions!

  10. Melfra says:

    Is there a volume 5? And is chapter 18 going to be a long chapter?

    18’s as long as the rest of them, and volume 5 only came out a couple days ago.

  11. Writer In Training (WIT) says:

    thank you, you’ve defiently answered my questions.
    But, does Barnes and Noble carry Barajou no kiss?
    It’s easier to buy directly, rather than on the internet.
    Keep up the good work on Barajou no kiss! :)
    I rarely find mistakes and I like it how you often explain dialogue.
    Just keep it up! :D
