LYL. The first scans of 136 are out and it includes full colour scans of the bookmarks and that faboo Natsu x Ren image. Want it?  If so, you can get it here: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=QMS5QIG0

In which Golden Meliades updates my blog ♥ Yes, Mel.  We do worship, thee =P And no, I don’t just love this picture* because I love Natsu.  It’s because I love hot Kyoko, and hot Ren =P Don’t you?  Oh, the possibilities!

Skip Beat 136 raws are out!  Big thanks to Mel ♥ (See, see?  There’s the love!) and to Deddinty for the gorgeous cleanup!

The Cover Challenge

The Skip Beat! Cover Challenge

1. The picture chosen must be from an official cover.
2. The FanFic must include how the picture was taken.

The “how the picture was taken” is up to you: photo shoot, snap shot, paparazzi–Ren seducing Kyoko is always a favorite. (Hint, hint.) Length does not matter. If the challenge actually get entries, I’ll definitely post them here! And, I’ll probably get some high quality scans up in a couple of days, but here are some Hana to Yume covers (not all of them are actually covers, I think), and official Shoujo Beat covers below. Have fun!

Nakamura’s tagline contest

After eons of indecision, I’ve decided that I will host a Skip Beat! FanFic challenge.  This is open to anyone that loves Skip Beat! and FanFiction, but if you don’t like either, I don’t know why you’re here :P

You’ve read the Manga.  You’ve seen the covers.  Most of the time, the covers have nothing to do with the storyline.  In fact, sometimes, those lovely, adorable pictures come out of nowhere and you’re left thinking, “Why isn’t this in the storyline?”  Or a side story?  Or, something to give readers a bone!  C’mon, Nakamura!

So, I thought, I want to do a FanFiction Cover Challenge!  A challenge based off of Skip Beat covers!  It’s not very original, but it does sound like fun, doesn’t it?  Beach scene anyone?  Or, how about that delicious Volume 16 cover?  Too bad.  Nakamura beat me to it first.

Nakamura’s tagline contest

Sometime around the original publish date of the chapters in volume 16, Nakamura held a tagline contest for the picture of Ren and Kyoko in the cover picture below.  You can read the pages below:

Meh, meh.  But I’d still love to see certain covers made into FanFics.  SO, instead of a tagline, you, dear writer, are challenged to choose a cover and write a Skip Beat! FanFic.  In order to qualify for this challenge, you must fulfill two requirements… Jump to the contest!

135 Scanslation Release!

135-scansoOh ho ho ho ho!  Not even a day later, here’s the latest release.  Read it at OneManga: Skip Beat! 135

As always, I’m sure the guys wouldn’t mind getting some more help for faster releases.  So if you have any talents–or just the desire to learn!–head over to Franky-House forums and help out!

135 Raw + Translation Release

Thanks to Golden Melaides ^-~ for always being on top of things!  For us scanslations fans, it’ll only be a matter of time before Franky-House does a Skip Beat! 135 release.  In the meanwhile, you can grab the raws and the translation from the Skip Beat! Yahoo! Group.  Be warned, though!  Kyoko’s acting has definitely improved, but the result is downright spine-chilling.  In fluffier news, did anyone catch this super steamy Skip Beat! picture on the last page?  Yowza, right?!  Can someone grab me a high-quality scan of this?  I smell a teaser FanFic in the works…^-^

You Deleted It, Stupid

I was messing around with some settings and I ended up deleting my blog content. What a moron. Luckily, by sheer accident, I also somehow managed to back it up right before I started tinkering. Perplexed? I am.

In any case, if you see anything missing (or something amiss), just let me know.
