Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio” chapter 5 – RELEASE!!

cmcc-c05

It’s been two days since Misato’s sad and abrupt departure from Curio, and now all the employees at Curio feel that they should do something to get Misato back. But Misato’s father is a leader of a Yakuza group, with the possibility of being thrown to the sea, the gang prepares for a very risky rescue operation, but will they succeed? Will they get thrown to the sea? How will they confront Misato’s father? All these fears will be put to rest on this final chapter!

You can get it HERE, or from the mirrors HERE, or read it in full resolution HERE!!!

The third release for the Month of August (2014)! This concludes the Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe ‘Curio’ project, Thanks to all the individuals and staff who helped produce this series, MoonWind who did the cleaning of the first chapter and Blackneer for cleaning the final chapter, Nonoe for just being there to clean the rest, Scsijon for the fine proofing, and Buttons for the raws and translations. It’s happy, yet sad to update and ending of a project, but it can’t be helped. After all the RL stuff we have to go through and the times we burn the late night oil just to finish a chapter and seeing other fellow fans enjoy the final product makes it all worth it. I must admit during the entire course of this project we had seen some staff come and go, but even if they’re no longer part of our team, they sure have left their legacy on these releases. We hope you all enjoyed this short project and let’s meet again on other projects!

Now that’s done, we now have an empty slot available for other long pending works.

Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio” chapter 4 – RELEASE!!

cmcc-c4 It’s been a month and Misato seems to be fitting in quite well to her new life. But just she she thought that things are going well, a gang of rather shady people came to Maid Cafe “Curio” looking for Misato, could it be that they came to collect Misato’s unpaid debt? What will Daisuke do to protect Misato? Read on to find out!

You can get the release HERE, or from the mirrors HERE, or if those links still don’t work, you can read it all HERE!!

Drama is at an all time high in Maid Cafe Curio as Misato’s past catch up to her. Anyway, most of you guys are probably wondering what happened to the ge.tt links, it appears the site went down suddenly, but don’t worry, we still have archives of the older releases for Maid Cafe Curio, unfortunately, we can’t say the same for other projects that were affected by the sudden disappearance of our file server. Rest assure that we’ll try to fix this little problem, all Maid Cafe Curio archives are mirrored, so you can still get them from active mirrors and we also added Mega links for good measure.

Mini TAIHEN News Report

June has been a very busy month for our group, we actually made many releases this month compared to the previous months starting this year. We hope to keep up this good release rhythm, but as fuel is running out, I’m a bit sad to report that releases may slow down again this coming month of July, even though we may not be able to make a weekly output, we’ll try to chuck stuff out as frequent as we can.

New Volunteer Staff Applicants

This past week we received some applications for selected positions, I personally sent reply messages, but the applicants haven’t replied yet, it’s either my message got lost in their spam folder, or they’re just busy with RL stuff at the moment. If you guys have filed an application and still hasn’t received a reply from any of our admins, chances are that the reply messages ended up in spam, or the reply messages from our group got sent to a nonworking email address. To those interested to help speed up a particular project, you can still send us your application, and be sure to fill up the email address box with the email you are using and check your spam in case our response gets lost in there.

Priority Project Poll

As for the Priority Project poll result, it seems that Maou is taking the lead leaving all other projects in the dust. Well, if many of you guys want a Maou chapter for the next release, so you shall. It may take a while though, a week or two at the least. But until that time, other releases will be put on hold to prioritize Maou chapter 09.

Well, that’s about it for this project release announcement report. We hope you enjoy this release, let’s meet again on the next one!!

Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio” chapter 1 – DECLASSIFIED!!!

maid_cafe_curio

Yuki Daisuke is running their family owned maid cafe called “Curio”. It’s a European themed cafe with dedicated and rather odd staff. The business is originally owned by Daisuke’s father, but after his father remarried, he went away on a long honeymoon leaving Daisuke behind to manage the cafe. One day, a rather innocent girl named Misato, went to Maid Cafe Curio looking for a job, but when the manager asked for her resume she couldn’t produce one, and thus she was abruptly shown to the door. What will happen to the poor girl now? Is this cafe just another place of broken stuff (I’d say dream, but nah)? Take a ride and follow the life stories of the girls working for the Maid Cafe “Curio”

You can get the file HERE, or get it from the mirrors HERE, or read it HERE.

It’s been three years and nine months since we first announced the project, and it has taken us that long to finally get the very first chapter out. The first problem we encountered with this project was the raws we obtained were in bad quality, our translator got so annoyed with how bad the raws were that she quit the translation work. For two and a half years the project sat in the archives gathering dust, until Buttons contacted us and offered to help us with our little problem, he provided the raws and the full translations for the first two chapters, at that time we assigned MoonWind to do the cleaning. Though I believe at that time we still have at least three active proofers, not sure if the translations were proofed back then, since progress tracking was not our strong point (unfortunately). And during that time, we have our hands quite full, and so we decided to enlist the help of our new friends, a collaborating group who will do the final editing, typesetting and QC job. If I remember correctly a few days later, the other group notified us that there is something wrong with the raws we gave them. We kept contact with the other group and tried to resolve the little hitch they encountered with the raws. Afterwards, work progress has returned to normal, and we even have agreed with what credits page we will be using, see below:

Days passed and updates for the production were rarely announced until it got to the point that we all forgot about it. A Full year has passed and it seems that progress for this project has died, but early this year, in March (2014) Buttons sent me a message reminding me of Maid Cafe “Curio” which had me thinking. Since he had already went out of his way to give us better raws and translation, the least we can do is see to it that all the time and effort we have all invested on this project finally come to fruition. And so, I went down the dark recesses of the archives digging for the forgotten files of the Maid Cafe Curio project. I found the cleaned raws that MoonWind worked on and to my horror, I discovered that the first page of chapter 1 is missing. After sifting through 8 external drives I found the original raws we used back in 2010, and thanks to the advances in image cleaning softwares (something we didn’t have 2 years ago) I was able to refurbish the missing pages that were originally in poor quality. Though I thought the worst was over, I encountered another problem; the pages 12 and 13 were switched. This threw me off quite a bit, suddenly the translation doesn’t match the pages.

From the time I decided to take on the duty of finishing the production for this chapter, all I encountered were irregularities and problems. Now as I type this little ranting report about how much misery we had to endure just to get this project launched properly, I am drifting in and out of consciousness because I slept extra late last night just trying to finalize this release. I’ll be closing my rants here and we hope you guys enjoy this release! (FINALLY!!)

Thanks to Black Light Scans and Kevorth for their effort on Maid Cafe Curio, and the AFS staff who helped work on this release.
