It’s been a while! Sorry for the scarce updates recently, but we’ve been working day and night getting Velvet Kiss Volume 2 and Love on the Job Volume 1 finished and ready for print.
Before I get into that, I want to announce that Velvet Kiss Volume 3 is now licensed by Project-H! They’re also indicating that Volume 4 might not be too far away either. I remember when the first two volumes were licensed, some people shrugged it off saying the full series would never come out. Fortunately Velvet Kiss has seen surprising success so far as a licensed product and things are looking good for the future. We’ll be performing the translation and typesetting for Volume 3 as well. As with Volume 2, I’ll be completely re-translating it and making sure the dialog is as smooth as possible. This series deserves nothing less!
Volume 1 is now officially released and we’re getting word that people are getting their copies. It’s still a little odd to think that something we worked on is actually on paper somewhere, but cool at the same time. Unfortunately there’s been a little bit of a mess with Amazon, as they keep moving the release date around. Project-H says that they’ve already sent Amazon their copies so hopefully that means they’ll ship out soon. Could you drop us a line if you ordered through Amazon once your copy shows up?
As I write this, we’re up to our eyeballs in Harumi Chihiro material, although there’s certainly worse places to be. I think you’ll see a further refinement in visual quality in Velvet Kiss Volume 2 and Love on the Job (previously known as Koi wo Suru) as we get more used to working with this particular print standard. We’ll be promoting Love on the Job more as it gets closer to release, but I’m really excited to work on it from the beginning and give it the treatment it’s always deserved. It’s gonna be far better than what’s been floating around before.
Ziggy’s gonna have an announcement coming up sometime soon, so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, if you’re looking to pick up Velvet Kiss Volume 1, here are some places you can order it:
Catch you next time!
