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!

The Moment When a Fox Becomes a Wolf

The Moment When a Fox Becomes a Wolf
by Hwang Mi Ri

Gook Eun-Song is your average high school girl… that is until her attractive younger sister stole the man she had a crush on. Depressed, Eun-Song purchased a bottle of alcohol and crawled into a supposedly cursed closet in her father’s furniture store.
Yu Ha is your average typical bad boy. He even broke traffic regulations just to end up being chased by a couple of police officers.

Oddly enough, he also ended up in the same closet where Eun-Song is asleep from drinking too much. Yu Ha ends up sleeping in the cursed closet with Eun-Song by his side… just to find out the next day, their bodies have been *gasp* switched!

Can anything else possibly go wrong for our poor heroine?

The Summit

The Summit
by Lee Young Hee

Han Sae Lee is every girl’s dream—tall, dark, and handsome with a whole lot of attitude. He knows he’s the catch, but right now, he’s interested in catching a brazen, blond brat and teaching him a lesson or two…WAIT! How can one skinny (but very cute!) boy with sticky fingers (stole Han Sae’s wallet when they first met) give him the run-around so easily? There’s something about Moto that makes Han Sae see red—and not necessarily with anger.

Somehow, Moto has entered Han Sae’s life and shows no signs of leaving. What are Moto’s motives for befriending the “prince”? How far can this friendship go? These questions plague Han Sae as Moto becomes more important to him than he wants to admit. Looks like every girl’s dream man has some growing pains to go through… – From DramaQueen

Everyone knows about the story of Shahrazad and her wonderful tales of the Arabian nights. For one thousand and one nights, she entertained the mad Sultan with the adventures of Aladdin, Ali Baba, Sinbad, genies, and many other mystical creatures. But what if Shahrazad was actually a boy desperate to save his sister’s life? What kind of strange things would he do to make sure that he survives to tell the tale?
