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!

    Excellent work! I started to fall in love with Turtle Paradise… *kicked* I hope you can finish this serial. I’m waiting for the next chapter. Keep up the good work! ^^

  4. Melfra says:

    update soon.. the story is soo interesting… pls update !!

    I’m sorry, but could you guys please stop posting things like this? I feel like fandom is really henpecking us lately and comments like these are driving everyone away. You’re turning a hobby into a job and I’m sick of it! Why do you think our release rate slowed to a crawl?

  5. Melfra says:

    According to MAL, the BnK has only 42 chapters. Is this really true? I thought it would be longer ^^”

    Actually, there’s only 40 chapters. There’s a couple extra chapters at the end, but they’re pretty old news by now and MAL has a really strange policy with the numbering lol

    Just wanted to thank you guys for the kick-a job you’re doing on this series! As a beginning translator myself who blindly gropes around to figure out how characters should sound, I continue to be amazed at how much personality gushes out of your work, and I hope I can be half as good someday! Also, just out of curiosity, I’m guessing the art book was a Zenin item?

  7. rebmastu says:

    Ahhhh, I’m sorry it’s taken so long to reply! We get messages like this so rarely and when it happens, I’m just too overcome with icky gooey fuzzy feelings to properly articulate how awesome they make me feel! That said, I’m so glad you’re enjoying the series itself and our work on the series. Keep at it! You can do it! If I can make people sound like people (lol what), then so can you!

    Moooooving right along from the fabulous feel-good times, yes indeedy, the artbook was zenin. Its price has dropped substantially on yahoo auctions though, so there’s a plus.

  8. rebmastu says:

    When is the release date of chapter 37 pls make it as soon as possible!

    We’re working on it! School hijacked us all for the most part (Well, not ALL of us, I guess), but we should be back in business in about a week or two once finals are out of the way. Stay tuned!

  9. okidokisantoki says:

    Your scans are wonderful! I just love love love your translator’s notes! Thank you for all your hard work! I can’t wait for Volume 9 to be released!
    Merry Xmas~

    is volume nine the last volume in the series?

    Yeah volume 9 is the last one and there are 42 chapters!!

    Can’t wait for the chapters that are about to come!!
    I wish we won’t have to wait for any longer1

    Just a quick correction, the main story is only 40 chapters. The number 42 originates from MAL, where they list all extra chapters under the total number. That being said, their number is still incorrect – including earlier chapters (namely, “NO MOON” and 24 hours with the Roses), the total is actually 44.
