First, though, a bit of bad news for you Zenra QQ fans. I've gotten quite a few comments and more than a few emails recently asking if I would translate any of his stuff that's currently on Exhentai. Since I ended up getting so many, I figured I'd mention it here instead of individually responding to everyone that asked.
The short answer to whether I'll be translating any of Zenra QQ's works that are currently uploaded to Exhentai as of the date of this posting is: Nope.
I simply don't like his art. The stories are meh, so it comes down to the art, as it does with most hentai. And for this artist I simply have to pass. This is incredibly subjective, so I won't get into the list of why I don't like it. I did, however, want to let you guys know that I won't be doing anything by him so that you won't be expecting something that's never coming.
Keep in mind that this only applies to his work that's currently on exhentai. It's very likely that any more stuff he does will look almost the same and thus won't be on my list to translate, but every now and again artists do depart from their usual style, for better or worse. If that happens, I'll reconsider that particular work like I would any other. In fact, this was almost there. Not quite, but almost.
Now, that's quite enough bad news for one post. Now we move on to the good stuff.
In a perfect world, stuff like this would get translated always, no matter the effort involved. Well, I'm here to tell you that I'm attempting to make this a more perfect world.
That's right, I've already finished most of the erasure, redrawing, and other editing for this CG set (so most of the pain in the ass stuff) and am currently in the process of translating it. Which as of right now really only consists of adding the text into the bubbles.
I think a lot of people that comment on how hard I work on these translations, especially the black and white ones, drastically overestimate the amount of work involved, even if I am just a one person team. I usually don't even like to mention whether I work hard or not even if I do, but for this one I'll admit; it was one of the hardest I've ever done. Easily the hardest since the translucent Nagi-Ichi elf one. In fact, I waited until I was done with the hard stuff to post this just so that I knew I wouldn't all but abandon it the way I did that elf CG from before.
And while I still hadn't really planned on commenting on how much effort when into this, I wanted to do it so I could tell all my Patreon supporters how much I appreciate their support. Both the amount of people (whether they've come and gone or not) and the total consistency with which you guys support me really went way beyond what I was expecting. To be honest, I was on the fence about this CG at first. I really love it, but it seemed like a pain in the ass. But then I thought about my Patreons and figured what the hell. You guys deserve a reward. So here you go. My first real Patreon reward.
I'll be uploading it to all the sites for free like always, so don't worry about being locked out of content or some nonsense. That will never happen. But I don't think it's too wrong to tell those that went above and beyond to support me that you guys really make my day.
tl;dr: Thanks Patreon supporters. To you and everyone else, prepare your dicks for over 100 pages of Kinta. You're gonna need it.
