I just finished lettering the last chapter (c10) and have notified animemiz. Now were in the quality checking (QCing) phase. Now onto Pandra Restaurant.
Editing is complete. C01-05 are ready for QC and I’m lettering c06. I’m getting about 1 chapter lettered a day, so we should have Rainbow Waltz finalized before it’s due date (Sept. 30).
This book has 10 chapters and I’m loving the drama so far. Can’t wait to see what happens next between Shizuka and her butlers.
With the deadline looming for Rainbow Waltz, and August-September being an incredibly busy month personally me (the editor). I can’t help but echo what cgcornett mentioned earlier, that Rainbow Waltz is going to be a pleaser for shoujo fans…when this title is completed. I am right now in the middle of editing chapter 6, and done a first qc for several chapters.
One thing I notice that I would like to keep is the usage of ojousama -suffixes or the word itself. Ojousama is Japanese for Princess. In past works, I have tried to keep it simple and switch it all to English, but so far it seems easier to keep ojousama. I seriously believe that it makes the title or context sounds more romantic, though I haven’t read as much Korean manhwa to see if there is similarity between Korean and Japanese publications.
Another thing, we at ISCRU is seriously seeking for, is reviewers for our publications. I was talking with cgcornett and contemplated on ethics of reviewing titles myself. I can fan girl gush mentally and to my friends about Hide and Seek all I want.. (also planning from my drafting board to write something about it eventually)… but all in all.. I wonder if there’s bl fans willing to review about Hide and Seek, a title that I definitely love. We’re also going to be asking for reviewers for future publications that we do. If interested please contact us at iscrugroup(at)gmail(dot)com.
So our translator just sent us c09-10 scripts, which means translations are done.
Now it’s left to animemiz and I to finish the book. I wasn’t able to finish lettering c01 before I left for AnimeFest, so I’ll be finishing it up on Monday(Labor Day).
Wishing y’all a safe and fun Labor Day Weekend.
