Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio” Extra Chapter – RELEASE!!

Chocolat Maid Cafe Curio ch 5.5

After the ordeal with Misato’s father, things have gone back to normal at Curio. But as a last hurrah, we are treated to a rather candid chapter featuring the main characters introducing themselves to the readers for the first time. The Extra chapter starts with the introductions of their new series and then finally concluded by the event that happened after their rescue of Misato.

You can get it HERE, or from the mirror HERE, or read it in it’s full resolution HERE.

Well, we’re finally done with the entire volume of Chocolat Maid Cafe “Curio”, all thanks to Buttons and the staff who helped on this release, special thanks to Yami and Nonoe for the cleaning job, although some may notice slight change in the image quality halfway through the release, still, they did a fine job. Production got held way, way back due to me being too damn lazy to do anything else…

We hope you guys enjoyed this little bit of Curio, till next time!!

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 3 – RELEASE!!

cmcc-c3-p03

Midori and Daisuke always seem to be in bad terms, but that wasn’t the case when they were still in high school. Just when did things went sour between them? Will they ever get back in good terms again? Read on to find out!!

You can get the release HERE, or from one of the mirrors HERE, if that still doesn’t work, you can always read it HERE.

Finally, it’s out. I will take a short break from working on this project for a few days just to catch up with some lost sleep. Also, I need to finalize the translations for Maou chapter 8, so you will be expecting a release from that project as well soon. tbh, I’ve been at it for seven straight days and I didn’t have much sleep because of project works. Juggling RL stuff while working on rush projects is not a very healthy routine for me, so I’m afraid to say that the next Curio chapter release may be a few days behind the promised weekly release, but don’t worry, you’ll be getting a Maou release along with it.

Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio” chapter 2 – RELEASE!!

 

cmcc-c2-p01

Memories are abstract, formless stuff that you lug around your mind. There are so many kinds of memories, some are good, some are bad, some are just “MEH”, there are those that are easily forgotten and there are some cherished ones. Kanako Akishima used to be classmates with Yuki Daisuke and for some reason, she’s often seen sitting by the window of the Maid Cafe “Curio” sipping coffee while reading tons of books. Is there a special reason behind this? Or is Kanako just killing time before going to the university? Find out this rather unexpected back story of the silent girl who often reads books by the window and the Cafe manager.

You can get it HERE, or get it from the mirrors HERE, and if all of that fail you can still read the whole thing HERE.

Oh, did we mention that this project is going to be a WEEKLY release?! No?? Now you know! After the first release of the pilot chapter many feared that this will be just a one time only release, but on the contrary, we’d like to keep it as a regular project. As you can see, we’ve already announced work for this project almost four years ago as a regular (see original release post HERE), we are just finishing up on what we’ve started. Now you guys can enjoy this rather relaxing, working,  slice of life type of literature on a regular basis. And no, we’re not stopping work on this project any time soon, that is until we ran out of raws, translations, or RL stuff get in the way. We hope you enjoy this release and we’ll see you on the next update!!

We don’t have a fixed page for the Chocolat ~ Maid Cafe “Curio” so, for those who want to see the first chapter you’ll find the links below, enjoy!

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:

Chocolat_Cafe_Maid_Curio_c01_credits

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.

Chocolat~ Maid Cafe “Curio” Project!

Chocolat: Maid Cafe "Curio"

Chocolat~ Maid Cafe “Curio” Project is a GO!!

Oh no! Not another Maid Cafe theme manga… That’s what Ren-chan said when I proposed this project >_<

Well, it’s been bugging me since the beginning of the year and I’ve decided to give this project the  green light! I’ll be working on the translations on this one myself ^_^; We’ll be pushing ourselves to the limit with this additional burden… Err… Project! Yeah! Wish us luck! Right now, we got tons of project line-up! Work is still progressing with the Boku to Kanojo no XXX “Re-work”, Magikano and Hanaukyo Maid Tai, although I still haven’t heard of the progress for the typesetting of the latest chapter of HMT. Anyway… Work progress for this project is already underway, hopefully we’ll be able to make a multiple release this coming weekend, so you guys better keep a watch out for that!
