Limerent Void has been really silent, we know it and we’re trying to do something about it, but we need help. Before introducing our new release, I want to state that here in Limerent Void we’re just 3 people working on the projects on a sort of a steady pace. We need help, short and simple. We are lacking at least one translator for our seinen titles which are mainly Kamijo Atsushi‘s works and Chrono Crowd, besides we need some fast cleaners and editors who can work in all our future titles. They’re not difficult tasks, since I buy almot all digital (leveling is pretty basic for those) and it’s only cleaning and partly redrawing. Typesetters much appreciated too. I’ve managed to clean some of the projects, scripts are pilling up and noone that could take care of the typing… So please, all the positions are open, we need new blood in order to make this group work!! Sorry for the long and desperate cry for help but this is becoming a real problem now ;-;
Anyway now to the main subject of this release: S-K-8-R-S. YEEEH!
I’ve been wishing, yearning, dying to work with this manga for ages, and when I say ages, I mean AGEEES. First, we put it on SDS list, and then when LVS was created I put it here. If I’m honest, I’ve bought the volumes like when? 2 years ago? Wow.
I need to say that I adore Tojitsuki Hajime’s artwork, she’s been working mainly with BL, but this past time she moved onto shoujo and shounen/seinen (glad she did, because it’d be a waste of her potential to just stagnate herself in one genre or demography. Sk8rs is fresh, organic and pure bliss. Ok, I’m a big fan of the sport so yeah I can get carried away, but she portrays the ups and downs of becoming an amateur skater really well. I feel quite accomplished to bring this title to life and that wouldn’t have been possible without the unconditional and incredible support (and help with her superb translation skills) of Kokiden. I think I’ve turned her into a big fan of the series by now lol
Please give this title a chance and fill the box comments with all your opinions, I’d love to read what you think of the story. I’m already cleaning ch03 and 04 so those might come sooner than expected (I hope, or I’ll break, university is draining my vital energy). Extra thanks to Unagi-san and Katia for her help in this title!
SK8R’S – Chapter 01 & 02
So after so long from our first release with Thanatos no Shisha we bring you one of our most beloved projects. It’s been now like 3 years since I first discovered this beautiful title by a friend. Back then I had no one to help me with it, but fortunately we have Ananda who’s an angel and liked Hoshi as much as I did. We received amazing help by Aya, one of our master editors. This is her first project and she’s very fond of it. Kat-Tea was the one helping us out with typesetting, is her first job so welcome her please! Halalima was in charge of proofing and yep, she likes Hoshi a lot too. So we are extremely happy to see this released because it was there on our pending list for far too long, it was time for it to see the light of day.
Hoshi has a very intriguing plot, gorgeous art and a whole mistery around it. Make sure to take a look!
Also, we took a lot to make our second release because we only have one translator and two editors for Limerent Void. We need someone who’s good with Japanese and/or a few good editors to catch up with everything. We have more projects but we can’t announce them due to our lack of staff. Please consider to join us~!
Hoshi no Tokei no Liddell – v01 c01
Our First Release and also our first joint as Limerent Void! Big thank you to the great fellows at Golden Roze Scans for giving us the chance to help them with this amazing story: Emissary of Thanatos, or how we like to call it “Thanatos no Shisha” (sounds really cool). There’s been plenty of people waiting for this, sorry for keeping you all in the tenterhooks! But here it is, finally!
Thanatos is a really interesting story, who deals naturally (as it has the name “death” on it) with people’s final moments of their lives, which situations dragged them to those final stages and how they have to deal with it, but it’s not only that, there’s much more into it that I’m just not mentioning because I don’t want to ruin anything, you just have to figure that out by yourselves by reading.
Thanks a lot to Ananda for her translation, File No.1 was so lengthy (she’s a genius), to Halalima for her neat proofing, Hassliebe for helping me with the QC’ing, to Golden Roze’s members (ofc!) who were so nice at edition, typesetting and final checking, they did an incredible job! Please leave them a thanks msg at their site! And a special thanks to Maria from b-i-e-r-u blog who introduced me to Thanatos, she also gave us some material for next volumes and of course, for her great taste in things, thanks dear friend!
I don’t want to hold you any longer, so go ahead and read the first chapter 😉
