Notes: After 6 whole months, we FINALLY got a new chapter in this month’s Ciel! Enjoy!! Anyone want to take bets on when Shougo will show up…? ;)

Also, PLEASE take a glance at our cleaner request post. We’ve gotten a grand total of 2 people to even try the test, and we need far more help :( Releases will continue to be slow and scattered until we have more than just me doing all of the works, as that’s what it is right now :/

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!

Again, there was NO Back Stage!! manga installment this month either, unfortunately, despite previous assurances there would be a new chapter in this issue, and we’re not sure whether or not to expect one in the May issue (out at the end of March), but we’ll let you know as soon as we do!

For now, go see what Izumi, Ryouma, Shougo, and Rei are up to!

There was NO Back Stage!! manga installment this month, unfortunately, due to the authors’ busy schedules getting out this chapter and generating material for the anime DVDs and tankoubon volumes, but Eiki-sensei assures as a new chapter will be out in the next issue (end of January), so apologies for no new scanlated material for a bit! We’ll be getting back on schedule with novel translations soon, though, so hopefully that will make the wait a little easier to bear ^^

For now, go see what Izumi, Ryouma, Shougo, and Rei are up to!

Feel free to make hardsubs if you like, but we won’t be sharing them ourselves. If you share this file elsewhere, please don’t credit us. We’re not a fansub group and don’t want people coming to us begging us to sub random videos for them :/ We’re credited in the title as “SS”, and that’s good enough for us.

Apologies for the small video size; it’s the best we could get! It only came in DVD quality, and not very good DVD quality at that >_<; This was the OVA included in the recently released Volume 5 special edition, and it covers Chapter 16 of the manga (the anime ended with Chapter 15), with a few new scenes thrown in (those of you hoping for some Shougo/Rei and Saotome/Kuroi...you won't be disappointed ;)). Enjoy! And please seed as long as possible!
