Long time no read!
Yeah, it really has been a long break. I apologize for my long abscense, though it was absolutely justified.
I haven’t touched Risou (or anything else scanlation-related for that matter) in two months as I’m busy writing (or rather translating) my thesis. It’s going well, but unfortunately (for you) it will still take some time until I’m done. For that reason, I cannot promise you regular updates on Risou. Sorry.
So far, you have been very patient with me (more than I actually expected, lol), for which I am grateful to you. But it goes without saying that scanlation is only a hobby to me and matters involving my future definitely take a higher priority. I just hope that you can be patient some more. I do stand to my promise to finish Volume 4 and I would very like to continue after that as well, but that’s something for the future. For now, I spend my spare time after working on my thesis with gaming, but I intend to do some pages for Risou once in a while, too. That said, the chapters are rather long, so i’ll take time. I’m afraid that I can’t stick to my “usual” pace of one chapter per month anymore. Theoretically, I could finish one chapter per month, but I would have to pressure myself into a corner to get it done. However, that is not something I would like to do while I’m writing an important thesis. It’s probably one of my biggest flaws that I get distracted too easily (or turn away from reality for that matter).
Anyway, to give you a little light of hope in these dark hours, I have included Risou Volume 6 and 7 in my Spring Order from Japan. At the same time it’s supposed to motivate to work a bit faster 🙂 The next arc seems to be pretty interesting.
If you’re ready for some SPOILERS, click here for some images of the two volumes. Remember that I don’t have a scanner, so I took these with my cell phone.
Oh right, nearly forgot. I promised I would attach a chapter to the update post in April and well, you know me 🙂
It’s a relative short intermission, but a chapter is a chapter^^
