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!

Show Princess
by Min Xiao Xi

Yi Summer and Loshii are orphans, both having met each other at their adoptive parents’ home. Because of the shadows remaining from their childhood, they are both shrouded in the midst of wariness. However, when Yi Summer and her brother meet an embarrassing situation during a singing competition, Loshii helps them out, and the iciness that separates both of them gradually melts. Seeing what has happened, as well as in an attempt to break both of them up, Ozen, who deeply loves Yi Summer and is the heir to the company that founded their school, sends Loshii off to England to study…

Five years later, Loshii has become a superstar, with countless number of fans to his name. Yi Summer, having become an orphan once again as her adoptive parents died the year Loshii left, is a new artiste of a records company, and meets Loshii. Ozen, on the other hand, having lost his memory of Yi Summer five years ago due to a car accident, also sees Yi Summer once again as well. With all three main characters back on the scene and their disputes of love and hate, what will happen between them then? Who will Yi Summer pick in the end?
