Hi Everyone!

We have BIG NEWS to go along with our releases!

NOIR is moving from wordpress to a FORUM!

Forum address: http://projectnoir.net

We will be closing down our wordpress site (removing all download links as well as removing our address from Mangaupdates.com) at the end of this month (March 31, 2009).

Please visit our forum and register!

You will need a minimum of 10 NON SPAM Posts to access our releases,

starting April. We are opening our forum ahead of time so that you will be able to meet those requirements before our first April releases.


Today we are releasing:

Sonan Jyanaiyo Ch10: We are recruiting Traditional Chinese Translators for Sonan! Please help us!

The Snow Queen Ch11: Woot! We’re more than half way through the series XD! Hope you’re enjoying Wann!

Eikaiwa School Wars Ch06: Bringing you more ESW and Matsumoto Tomo! Hope you enjoy the chapter ~!

Happy Valentines & Happy Birthdays!

First off, Happy Birthdays!

Yes, I have been rather inattentive when it comes to staff birthdays, but I hope to remedy that today. I would like to wish Kagome999 & Nycmango (1/1), Rainbowskittles (1/4), CinnamonBuns (1/24), Gotchaweird (2/1), and Mllsandy (2/14) all a wonderful Birthday this year! Thank you guys for all your hard work (especially when your lazy admin has been been busy with RL and inattentive T^T). Please know that although I might forget your birthdays (I’m sorry T-T!!), I remember the hard work and time that you guys put into making NOIR a better, more active scanlation group. We wouldn’t be here without you! So Thank you for everything and again, Happy Birthday! Woot!

Now, Happy Valentines everyone!

I hope everyone has received (and given) lots and lots of delicious candy (CHOCOLATES XDDD!!)

Just so that everyone has something to read while munching away on that big pile of candy next to your computer (not that you’ll be lacking things to read since other groups are probably showering you with releases as well ;), we have releases!

Like before, we are still asking for donations XD. Please Donate!

We are also RECRUITING editors, translators, and QCers! Please visit our Recruitment Page to download our tests and for more information!

February 14, 2009 Releases:

Flowers of Evil Ch15: Finally, another chapter of FoE, for all those incest fans out there! More twisted LUV~ XD.  If you haven’t tried Flowers of Evil yet, please know that it is classified as “psychological” and contains “incest”. It’s NOT smut, and it deals more with the feelings of the characters, as well as their complicated relationships. In other words, it is NOT a light, easy, predictable shoujo. BEWARE XD.

Snow Queen Ch9: Another chapter of Wann XD. The story and author speak for themselves. Read to find out more ~! If you haven’t tried the series yet, try it out! It’s cliche (it’s Wann XD) but really touching. If you are into bittersweet shoujo, this is for you to try out!

Show Princess Ch4: Our joint manhua project with Sherbet Lemon XD. Since this is a new chapter, I will leave the chapter up for you to read and find out XD. If you haven’t tried Show Princess, give it a shot! The art is quite nice and the story quite interesting (although we’re only at ch4, the story is really building up). Please visit: http://sherbetlemon.heavenforum.com/forum.htm and drop a quick “thank you” for all their hard work in bringing out more of Show Princess so quickly XDD!

Sonan Jyanaiyo Ch9: Last but not least, another chapter of Sonan Jyanaiyo, a cute tale about a very plain and ordinary girl and her two handsome and outstanding brothers who are really quite hot. Of course, they’re also in love with her! No one knows why lol there’s the mystery~ Read to find out WHY they like her and to see just how good looking they are, because they are…

Also, be sure to check out our poll on the left hand side! We want your opinions, please~ Thank you! Enjoy the releases and the staff here at NOIR hope you had a fantastic Valentine’s Day!

Chiro Star Project Ch15 & A Wolf Warning Ch2

Here’s our release post for this weekend XD. But before we get to our releases, again, we are still asking for DONATIONS for more RAWs for our projects. Please click on the “Donate” button on the left to donate via paypal!

donateandrecruit2fz4

On with our releases, today’s release is….!

Chiro Star Project Ch15: We’re sorry that it’s been so long since we’ve released a chapter of Chiro (I know that there are some rabid fans of Chiro out there XD), but the raws for the series are quite.. UGLY and HORRIBLE, not to mention almost UNREADABLE (thus our campaign for donations XD). If you’d like more chapters of Chiro, please help us out!

A Wolf Warning Ch02: A new series that we started during our Christmas Release Marathon. We weren’t able to give it the attention that it deserved during our Christmas Marathon T-T, but I hope to remedy that today! It’s a cute, funny shoujo series with sweet bishie characters XD. If you haven’t tried out Chapter 01, please do so! It’s quite funny (I laughed and LAUGHED while translating the series XDD) and you’ll get hooked on the series in no time, I PROMISE XDD! So please try the series, you won’t regret it XD!

The Summit Ch15 & Show Princess Ch03

We have 2 quick releases for everyone!

Again, we are asking for DONATIONS! Please DONATE and help us get better RAWS for the series that you enjoy!

release270109az7

First off we have “Show Princess” Ch03, a new chapter for the series! We have finished releasing the 2 chapters (chapter 1~2) which were version 2s of previously released chapters. From chapter 03, we will have new chapters to continue the series! Please visit Sherbet Lemon ( http://sherbetlemon.heavenforum.com/forum.htm) at their forum and express your appreciation for the hard work they’ve put in this chapter!

Secondly, for those of you who’ve haunted Mangaupdates.com, you already know that “The Summit” Chapter 15 was released 2 days ago. Our joint partner Mihashi (#mihashi@irc.irchighway.net) released the chapter on their IRC channel and on Mangaupdates.com to celebrate the Chinese New Years! We’re releasing the chapter today on our website (Sorry we’re slightly late XD). Hope you enjoy!

Koi Yori Ch2 & Angel Diary V6 Ch7 pt2

Hallo!

Happy New Years! After our long marathon of releases during Christmas season, we’re finally back to our regular releases!

But before we get to releases, I would like to beseech (BEG) all readers for DONATIONS. NOIR is accepting DONATIONS for better/more RAWs.  We would like to buy raws for:

1. Dear Waltz (no raws are online for us to edit, thus the lack of progress of the series)
2. The Summit (the raws are horrible and ugly to edit)
3. The Moment When a Fox Becomes a Wolf (we have horrible raws for V01 which is the only volume we need raws for)
4. Platina (like The Summit, the raws are really horrible and disgusting to edit).

We could really use some help! Please DONATE and help us bring you more stuff FASTER (better raws=less time to edit). All money from donations will be used to buy raws only.

To donate, please click on the little “DONATE” button on the left side of the page, on top of the meebo widget. EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS!

Today we’re releasing….*drumroll*

Koi Yori Kiss Yori Daikirai!! Ch02 and Angel Diary V06 Ch07 pt.2 !

Angel Diay will be continued by NOIR as our own project. Our joint partner has not contacted us concerning the series for a LONG time, so we’ve decided to release a chapter to keep the series going. Until we receive word from our joint partner, Angel Diary will be continued as our own project and not as a joint project.

Alright, we hope that you enjoy our releases, and don’t forget to help us by DONATING!
