The September Team

Fellfire Summer Cover
If you’ve been following me (fencer) on social media, you may know that I’ve been working on writing my own novel for the bulk of 2015. I’ve finally finished, and I thought I’d share it here, since I have a feeling it may appeal to many of our readers. Please excuse the brief update for personal reasons!

When Commadont Alaric Monteval is asked to emigrate from his homeland of Vasque to neighboring Orexa on a long-term diplomatic mission, he thinks the move tantamount to retirement from his soldiering days and resigns himself to a quiet—and assuredly boring—life among the clouds atop the airborne country’s luxurious Holds.

However, he quickly finds himself wishing that the most intimidating hurdles he might be faced with were the opulent Oresian galas and the fickle moods of his new Holdmaster, Everet of Eizenthley, as he’s drawn into helping investigate an assassination attempt prefacing a coup d’etat.

Now the newly minted ambassador and his host must work together—a difficult task at times—to unravel the murderers’ plot before their world comes quite literally crashing down on their heads.

Length: 108,000 words

Summary: Nanase Haruka is a sixth-grade elementary school student who loves connecting with the water and feeling the water as he swims, and he attends a local swim club together with his childhood best friend Tachibana Makoto and Hazuki Nagisa, one year younger than the both of them. Then, one winter’s day as graduation draws near, Matsuoka Rin transfers into Haruka and the others’ school from another swim club. Through swimming, Haruka strengthens his bonds with Makoto and Nagisa, as well as with Rin–at which point Rin, with his passion for the medley relay, suggests they form a team together and enter a tournament… || This is the novel that the anime Free! is based on in manga form at last!
Notes: This manga has been released all at once as a tankoubon, so no waiting for monthly installments! We’ll be churning this out as quickly as possible ^^ Mirrors are much appreciated, thank you!!

Notes: Apologies for the slow release rate! I’m working on writing a novel and am in the final stages, so scanlating has been put on the back-burner while I finish up my draft ^^ But we have a LOT of really big releases coming in the next couple of days, so definitely look forward to it! Our translations will also be coming out again after I finish my novel draft (in the next couple of weeks), so please look forward to it! We’ve got new doujinshi from your favorites out at Comiket (Bubunhanten’s second half of Pinky Promise, and new Wrong Direction!), as well as an original never-before-scanlated prototype Haikyuu!! chapter. Think you’ve read all of the Haikyuu!! manga there is, including the “Chapter 0”? Think again :D

We’ve also heard that a lot of you are not receiving update notices. We’re sorry about that and are working on it. About half of you have been moved to a new mailing list module, so if your e-mail address starts with letters A-M or a number, please let us know if you receive your update properly!

Read on BLなう!

In keeping with our policy of not scanlating licensed material, we’ll be doing detailed summaries of future LS!! manga chapters instead of scanlations. There’s no reason you guys should have to wait 2-3 years to see what happens next just because a company licensed the manga, and without ongoing updates like this, your interest in the series is likely to wane, meaning you won’t be interested in picking up those volumes! So we’re doing this as a service to keep interest alive while balancing our desire to encourage people who can buy the manga to do so. We’ll be giving super detailed summaries, complete with lots of images (all the best ones, so you’re not missing any big gems ;)), so if for whatever reason you won’t be able to purchase this when it’s officially available in English, you’ll still be just as informed as everyone else!

Note that next issue, along with a new chapter, will be included an original drama CD featuring Izumi, Ryouma, and Kisaragi. If the content is NEW, we’ll translate it; if it’s manga material, we won’t. We’ll only be sharing it if we are translating it.

Volume 6 of this popular BL series will be released October 1 and come with an hour-long drama CD covering acts 17-26, which represent the drama filming + hypnosis arc and will feature Koyasu Takehito as super-director Kisaragi.

If you’d like to own this CD, then grab a preorder right now and we’ll make every effort to secure you one! (if for whatever reason we can’t order a copy, you’ll be refunded) This is a LIMITED EDITION made-to-order version, so you will likely NOT be able to buy this later if you don’t order it before the deadline (through some venue, even if not through Shoptember).

The price is $30 without shipping (shipping will depend on your country; dump it in your cart and proceed to checkout to see what your shipping will be!).

DEADLINE TO MAKE A PURCHASE IS JULY 25. After that, I’ll be submitting the order and will NOT purchase for anyone else!

Preorder today!

“Will you be translating this CD?” – Probably not, since it will almost certainly be almost word-for-word the same as the manga. You can read along with our previous scanlations/summaries though!
