I have three things to say today. Two of which will be doujin announcements and status updates, while the other one is something a little less pleasant. Let’s start with that last one.
What I want to talk about is something that people might judge me for, which is exactly why I feel the need to talk about it before just doing it. So apparently, I signed up for AdSense. I didn’t really take it seriously at first, because I read that it’s really hard to get approved anyway, and that you’d need your own domain, which I don’t have, and a lot of other things.
As it turns out, I got approved, which is why I started to seriously think about it. I mean, getting some money for doing something that you like anyway sounds really nice at first, but I also know that most people are annoyed with any kind of advertisement. Well, people who use AdBlock and such won’t notice stuff like this anyway, but I still feel the need to ask whether that’s actually okay to do.
I will keep the ad as small as possible, and I won’t put up more than one. Also, I have no idea whether I will actually make any money at all, but just thinking that my blog could possibly earn enough money that I could just buy a single manga with it, is already more than enough for me to want to try it.
I have no idea how many of you actually care about this, and if it becomes apparent that you’re not okay with this, I won’t put up anything at all. With that said, I would really appreciate if you could just leave me your thoughts on that matter.
Now let’s quickly move on to the last two announcements.
Right now, Mai and I are working on two doujinshi. One of which is a NSFW Marisa x Alice Touhou doujin by Cloud Palette. The scans for this one have been available on the internet for quite a while now, and I’m actually just writing about this to make sure that no other scanlation group starts working on this as well.
The next one is a doujin I actually scanned myself, which is a first for me. I couldn’t find anything by this author, no translations, and also no RAW scans, but I’m pretty sure most of you have already heard the name.
COCOA BREAK surely sounds familiar if you’re a fan of doujinshi done by Sweet Pea (Ooshima Tomo). This author, who also goes by the name Oshima Towa, often works with Sweet Pea, but I’ve never seen one of her own works being translated, which is surprising, since the art is gorgeous and the content always yuri.
To tell you how far we’ve gotten with the two releases, let’s do it Yuri-ism-style:
