Welcome back to Turtle Paradise! Ironically, our first release after our revival is the same as our last release before our hiatus. (Well, Awai no Mori notwithstanding. We’ll get to that later, though.) First off, Barajou! BABY, I MISSED YOU SO MUCH.

As for why the hiatus, well… Shite hit the fan for me November of last year (it always hits around November, doesn’t it?), and without going into the gory details, I had to take a sabbatical to take care of my mother, and I found that my mood was affecting my translations and the quality of our work in a bad way, so I decided to take a break until I was sure I could separate the two. I tried to ease myself into the process for this year’s Twelve Days event and that, uh… almost worked, but not quite. So fast-forward four months and here we are, hopefully refreshed enough to take on the challenges of scanlating once again. To anyone who’s applied for a position in the meantime and I callously ignored, please accept my apologies. Like I said, I disappeared from basically everything but Twitter and Tumblr.
And that’s enough of that, I think! Look forward to a mega-release next week to make up for the spartan quality of this one. For the moment, we’re looking at Mebius Gear, Junketsu Kareshi, a visit from an old series, and a handful of one shots, SO GET PUMPED, Y’ALL. WE’RE CELEBRATING IN STYLE.
