Hi, everybody! Kuro here! (^^)/
First of all, you can find the Volume 2 illustrations here.
The project page is up, and everything is set! This is actually going to have a few important updates, but if you don’t care about it I guess you can just look at the illustrations and leave.😛
On a side note I am still looking for the LN illustrations for Blacksmith Volume 1 +2 and for Death Flag Volume 3. Can you guys please tell me if any of you find them?🙂
So yeah, click below for the news:
First of all, Madao. I’ve actually emailed Madao before when he was still active, asking him if we could share the project, to which he politely refused, saying he wanted to work on it alone.
After checking my email again after some time, I was surprised to see Madao emailing me asking me if I wanted the project since I showed interest on it before- but that’s not important since the project is already mine anyways (I’m not sharing xD).
People have been wondering why he dropped, and honestly I wanted to know too but it looks like IRL is getting busy for him so he can’t translate the series anymore. Here’s what he wrote in his mail:
Second of all, I’ve been asked if I was going to re-host Madao’s work on my site, and my answer to that is, maybe.
I DO NOT believe it is fair to take someone else’s work like that, if you’ve seen the drama between Entruce and that other group for Kuro no Maou, you would know what I’m talking about. However, I am going to re-post the chapters that have the illustrations on them, so I can insert them in, and ONLY those chapters. I have mailed Madao about how he feels about the re-hosting and am currently waiting for his reply.
Third, if you look at the donation area you can see that I’ve set ‘Death Flag’ as 50$ per double-release. I believe that this is fair because Death Flag’s chapters are longer and more complicated than Blacksmith’s, but in return, I have reduced the amount per Blacksmith double-release from 40$ to 30$. I hope you all think that this is as fair as I do.
Also please remember to mention which series you’re donating to from now on, if you forget I will take your donation and split it evenly between the two projects.😛
Lastly, as for my next update, expect it soon, as in today or tomorrow. Before I start posting Death Flag, I owe you guys 4 sponsored Blacksmith chapters, all released within 48 hours of each other. So after I get those out, I will start releasing Death Flag.
Thank you all for reading my work, and for continuing to visit my site during my summer vacation break.
and thank you Madao for all your hard work on Death Flag. I hope you find success in whatever is troubling you IRL. Your work will be dearly missed.
If you guys want a small spoiler/preview on Harold and Erika that’s going to happen soon look at this post I made on the forums a while back. :3
