READ ALL THIS (please :3):
Here's the thing. Do you remember me saying about doing the Orange scanlation (like... from the begining of the series), well, after like 100 years, the 6 chapters are FINALLY done. You don't know how many headaches I suffered doing this. Basically: I had to do the typesetting (partially and complete) & cleaning (partially but from every chapter, I'm not really skilled in PS either, but sigh, I did my best) & *atryof* QC-ing & the proofreading of some chapters. So pretty much YES, I've spent my weekend trying to finish them and I can finally say: I'M DONE with this after many hours stiff in front the computer. Thank you to all the staff who was involved in this release (is a quite large list, but you can check them in the credits page here).
So now I'm not really planning to continue with the scanlation, despite the fact that many people helped (and thank you very much!) I sort always ended up checking and editing the things of every chapter because to ask someone else meant it would take decades more and I don't have more time for that. Also, Simple Scans releases a regular and AWESOME *drolls* scanlation and I don't think you'll feel the fact that we're not continuing with this (such a fast start and ending xD).
Then, the deal is: to post the translation + raws from chapter 7 onwards. I got the translation relatively sooner than the eng scans so you can take a sneak peak before the scanlation is done. Something like with AHR C:, happy with that? Good. I'm cool with that too.
Now, I'm not interested in doing the scanlation, but if someone is willing (REALLY WILLING) to do it (which means a GOOD cleaning and typesetting, and it doesn't have to be just 1 person), contact us and let's see how we could deal with this. I'm fine with that as long as I don't have to work or fixing anything of it xD.
In the Spring she was 16, Takamiya Naho receives a strange, but detailed letter from herself, ten years in the future. At first she thinks the letter is a prank, but then the things written in the letter actually happen, including the new transfer student that sits next to her in class, Naruse Kakeru.
The letter reads just like her diary entries, down to the same characters. It is not till two weeks later, when Kakeru shows back up at school, that Naho finishes the letter.
In the letter, her 27-year-old self tells her 16-year-old self that her biggest regret is that Kakeru is no longer with them in the future, and asks her to watch him closely.
Another new project: Kujaku no kyoshitsu (summaries). This is a suggestion from our lovely translator Sara (TnA, which reminds me, you'll be able to read the special chapters soon, sorry for they wait, Orange has been killing my time late). We got chapter 3 summary just one day before the scans were released D:, so Sara was frustrated and worked really hard (and quick) with chapter 4 (scans are in LQ though, we'll try to update a higher ones if we can!) EDIT: Scans in GOOOD QUALITY NOW!! So many thanks to her, who also scanned the raws for this lastes chapter :*, and Shmook who scanned chapter 3 and will be proving us with next chapters too. Hope we can have done more chapter soon!

They're a group of peacocks who dance gracefully with their beautiful plumage that mesmerizes all eyes. Will Mariho's destiny be changed after meeting them...?!
Thank you very much to Jessica and Michelle who made a donation for our site. We really appreciate that!
Sigh. Need to finish a lot of things for tomorrow and still need to reply a ton of emails (sorry people, Orange kinda sucked my life the past few days!), so I guess this will do for now. When I said the thing about needing a secretary, I meant it. The only problem is how to teach all the stuff without making that training another extra-spent-time. But anyway, hope to come back sooooon with more updates!
Take care :*
