Eva: Gakuen Datenroku 17 & Barajou no Kiss vol 1 (HQ redo)

Look! You scared Shinji! Well… Okay, we know that’s not hard, but still.

First off, can we all just pretend we released this on Friday? Because (GASP!) Turtle Paradise is moving to a release schedule! (Good god, it only took us two years.) Expect new releases of WHATEVER THE HELL WE PLAN ON RELEASING every Friday! What time? Psht… Don’t give us that much credit as forward-thinking individuals. We ain’t smart folk, no siree. ANYWAY! BREAK DOWN OF RELEASES!

First we have chapter 17 (GASP) of Evangelion Gakuen Datenroku! I know, I know… Took us long enough, right? But it’s out now! ARE YOU HAPPY NOW!? That’s what I thought. Enjoy it, Eva-geeks. Editing brought to you by Rainstride, friend to forest-dwellers everywhere.

Second we have the promised HQ re-release of volume 1 (specifically, chapters 1 and 2) of Barajou! I’ve gone through and touched up a lot of the dialogue and corrected some translations for the entire first volume (including Anis’s name), so if you haven’t done it recently, maybe now’s a good time to re-visit it? Besides, volume one’s easily the best of them all. (Or maybe tied with volume 2?) Editing by the multi-talented Melfra, who also runs a mean scanning bed. Yes, she will fark your shite up, don’t even.

The new chapters haven’t been uploaded yet, because Melly and I want to bust some ass on WoW. In the meantime, ENJOY~

(Also, Follow us on Twitter! Uh, and… Please consider donating to the server fund? =D)

EDIT: Now uploaded to the reader!

Barajou no Kiss ch. 15, SLH ch. 4, and Omamori no Kamisama ch. 4… GOOD GOD


No, the servers aren’t crashing… BUT WORLD SURE AS HELL IS COMING TO AN END.

In 2012, that is. (I heard that was a pretty garbage movie, BTW. I walked in on my fam watching it a while ago and this lady was trying to give her kids to some monk to escape the impending Armageddon. “Please,” she says, “Wouldn’t you want the same for your own children?” BITCH, MONKS ARE CELIBATE. I giggled obnoxiously and left the room shortly thereafter.)

But we’re not here to talk about 2012 now, are we? HELL NO! That’s right, half of you want your Shouoto eye-candy, and the other half of you are here to put Mimori in your pocket! Guess what, guys? TODAY, YOU GET TO DO BOTH. After a million years of waiting, we finally managed to finish chapter 4 of SLH, thanks in no small part to Melly, once again putting pinch-hitting editor duty, and Zippy and Magmar on the typesetting front. On that note, this chapter of Barajou is also brought to you by Melly (who seems to have a monopoly on the Shouoto front, IF YOU ASK ME), and Baki at the typesetting helm, and finally, we’ve got Shae pulling editing duty for this chapter of Omamori, with EpikWonder typesetting.

And while we’re at it, Melly (JEEZE, MELLY) has overhauled the reader in a pretty amazing way. As always, it’s still a new thing, so go check it out and tell us what you think!

BY THE WAY, FOLLOW US ON TWITTER! All the cool kids are doing it… And you do want to be one of the cool kids… don’t you?

Barajou no Kiss chapter 13… and 14!?

Oh, we’re plotting alright.

There are a million billion people out there in the world right now and I’m willing to bet that today is one of their birthdays. So here’s to you, Mister one in a million billion people out there in the world right now; be glad that on this day XXX years ago your mother catapulted you out of her gaping maw and into this world. Here, have this present of not one, but two chapters of Barajou… and thank YOU for being born.

Okay, so all Evangelion-based lampooning aside, I’ll bet you’re all wondering WHY this chapter took so goddamn long to get out. It’s because we no longer have any editors. Nope, not a goddamn one. Our last dependable staffer has disappeared off the face of the planet (like so many before her) and we don’t have anyone to step up to the plate in her place. And hopefully, that’s where one of you will come in. (By which I mean plz plz plz take the editor test oh my GOD we need help.)

ANYWAY! As of this chapter we’ve changed “Anise’s” name to the official romanization of “Anis”. PROTIP: It’s pronounced Ah-nis, with a soft “A,” not a hard “A” like in “Anus,” which is pretty much the reason we changed it to begin with. But worry not, we’re gonna go and re-do the earlier chapters to reflect that change later this month to make up for not releasing anything on the 21st. (Durp durr)

Anywho, thanks for being patient (Oh god I can’t say that with a straight face…), and enjoy the new chapters. Yeah. They’re plotty… Or at least the second one is. YAY, CONFLICT. We also went ahead and re-released chapters 11 and 12 to get you started. (That brings ch.12 up to a whopping v3, lawl. OH BOY, DOES THAT EVER LOOK GOOD.)

Anyway, not to be a fear-mongerer or anything, but if we don’t get any new editors in the near future, like, REALLY near future, we’re probably going to have to shut down for a while. Both Melly and I go to work AND school full time, and neither of us really has the extra time to do too much more of this on our own, so unless we get some more hands on staff, our release rate’s gonna go down even more than it already has… and that’s saying a lot. Again, visit the forums and take the EDITOR tests if you have the time! (We’re set with typesetters for the time being. All we need right now are IMAGE EDITORS.)

Barajou no Kiss ch.12 (v2)

And I hope YOU’RE all happy.

A few kind viewers pointed out with the last chapter that we made a couple of hiccups with the final release (as usual), which I… promptly forgot to do anything about. Oops. The errors were pretty minor in scope, ranging from double commas (GO ME), to omitting words. The biggest mistake I can think of is on page 80 where the various stages of the contracts were described (I accidentally listed them all as “Stage I”), and the stupidest… Well, I misspelled some stuff on the credits page, but really, who cares about that? (We do, dammit! That’s why we’re releasing a v2!)

If you’re perfectly content with keeping the version you have, by all means, go for it. But if you download this version, you’ll get a sneak peak at some new art by Shouoto which came with this month’s Asuka magazine. >=D (INCENTIVE!)

And, um, please donate if you have any spare change lying around? =’D We’d love you forever.

Barajou no Kiss vol3ch11

You know it has to be bad when it embarrasses even TENJOH to say it

Are we on time? Are we late? Who knows, every day bleeds together when Daylight Savings hits, cursed to the fiery pits of hell may it be. I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOYED YOUR MOONTH~ Here’s our reward to you for making it this far alive. Also, Kurama’s card this time around is probably the best one we’ve gotten so far, and by got, I, I… dammit. By the way, this chapter is HUGE, but that’s mostly due to the fact that it’s, oh, ALMOST 60 PAGES LONG. Yeah. So enjoy your 20mb download size. Good thing these new servers are fast, huh?

On that note, we’ve finally added a full volume download feature for volume 2, so feel free to hit that up if you missed it. We’ll release one for volume 1 in the near future as well, just as soon as we put out HQ re-releases of chapters one and two. (With GOODIES!)
