Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 103rd Update!

Well, here’s the one for June. We might squeeze out 104 this month too, but it’s longer than usual, and less fun than usual. So, who knows.

Sometimes what you read makes you realise you’re old. This chapter did that to me. Curse you, Ayato-sensei! ( but just a bit )

One link only this time, but you may want to have your javascript on and wait for the countdown to finish. Just sayin.


She hates time make it stop
When did Motley Crue become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this
Stop! Stop! Stop!
And bring back
Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she’s uncool
‘Cause she’s still preoccupied
with 1985

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 102nd Update!

*innocent whistling*

Checks date.

*innocent whistling*

Welcome back everyone to our usual, scheduled UPDATE for the month of May, in which absolutely nothing went wrong. A translator vanished. Maybe two. You know, the usual.

But then one of them reappeared after a mere two months of radio silence, so all is fine in the world. The circle of life, like in the song:

It’s the circle of life

And it moves us all

When translator appears

While another just dies

So, RIP Enori. This chapter, in BLOCK CAPITALS, comes to you courtesy of Aaron. Edited by your’s truly. Quality-checked by Myuuchi, who managed not to be blamed for failing the deadline by a whisker.

P.S. There is a decent chance for two chapters in June, but no promises.


Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 101st Update!

I bet you didn’t expect this so soon. But I heard you guys were all about Maria ( was it love, or hate with pitchforks and torches…? damn if I remember ), so who am I to deny you.

Here’s more Maria. A lot more Maria.

Well, “here” is relative. Look under the line, where the comments lie.

Have a fragment of a poem about a bad witch as an outro. I wonder why does that seem appropriate..

Bad Witch
She was a witch, as in days of yore
She’d cast a spell and make you sore
If she smiled, babies would scream
To ruin mankind, her evil dream
She was really mean, of this be sure
She’d steal your soul if it was pure
She’d cast a spell and rip it free
Then seal it up in pottery
She really was evil, you thought I lied?
Whenever she sneezed an angel died

Chapter ?!
Chapter !?

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 100th Update!

Yay! Three digits! And technically it’s still March _-_

Anyhow, since we somehow managed to finish this chapter ( bless you Myuuchi ), here you go. The ridd—


We, the glorious Aqua cult, will no longer tolerate being relegated to the sidelines of this blog. We shall be the butt of poor April Fools jokes no longer! Can you even imagine how badly our Goddess is being treated? How hard is it for her to be less liked than a stupid cat? Just look at her.

You lot made her cry!

So we’re taking over. This is a REVOLUTION.

You’re not getting your stupid story until the greatest of them all is happy again. And that won’t happen unless enough of you move your lazy asses and go to vote Aqua!



Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 98th Update!

This is not The Greatest News in the World, no.
This is just a release.


*) Soo, since life stopped chewing me up and decided to spit me back out, we’re probably no longer on a hiatus.

*)That said, for a while we’re not on a schedule either. There should be a chapter a month at least. There might be more.

*)Chapters 92 – 97 have been re-edited over the last month. You may want to give them another spin and, frankly, everyone could use a refresher on the story after all this time.

*)Aaron, we got your message but your mailbox is full and our replies bounce. Hit us up on Discord please.


Remember this guy?

He’s been lonely. Give him a pat before you try to read stuff

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 91st Update!

Guess what, Enori is back. I’m dead though – too much work, not enough sleep ;_;

Can’t even think of anything witty to write for the release post. Meh.


Let’s shamelessly steal a sentence for the chapter then:

Sometimes, simple solutions are the best ones.

There’s only one link. But you probably want to click the kitten first.

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 90th Update!

Enori is still RIP, so def_nomad chipped in again. It was all very last moment, hence the delay. I’d like to tell you the future will be better. I really would.


Nevertheless. We are here, the chapter is here. A mountain of typos and language bloopers is probably with us too, but my brain toast, it Engrish good. That’s the best I can do at such a short deadline. And even though in the words of a great philosopher

Haec ego non multis (scribo), sed tibi: satis enim magnum alter alteri theatrum sumus.

I’m sure I’ll be all

Veni, vidi, flevi.

when I read it later. But you don’t have to be like me. You are here already, go see for yourself. There is no need to cry.


Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 89th Update!

Almost on time! How’s that for a miracle?

Since Enori’s laptop is still out of commission, this chapter was kindly guest translated def_nomad. I’d shill one of his projects, but apart for an one unreleased novel in editing hell, he has nothing active going on at the moment. Well, I’m sure you’ll see him translating something somewhere eventually. Do say ‘hi!’ when you do.


I feel like a song would be good this week, I got that one Offspring tune that follows me on and off over the last few months. It’s all about lies, so fittingly, all you’ll find in this post will be deception. The comments will show you the truth.

Show me how to lie
You’re getting better all the time
And turning all against the one
Is an art that’s hard to teach
Another clever word
Sets off an unsuspecting herd
And as you get back into line
A mob jumps to their feet
Now dance, fucker, dance
Man, he never had a chance
And no one even knew
It was really only you

And now you steal away
Take him out today
Nice work you did
You’re gonna go far, kid
With a thousand lies
And a good disguise
Hit ’em right between the eyes
Hit ’em right between the eyes
When you walk away
Nothing more to say
See the lightning in your eyes
See ’em running for their lives

“You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid” – The Offspring

Akuyaku Reijo Ni Koi Wo Shite 88th Update!

Eh. Work is a cruel mistress, greedy for your time and stingy with money. Sometimes it just leaves you no free moment for other pursuits. Like editing.

Yep, late again. Blame my boss ;] ( or shower me with money, all I need is a million of dollars to retire early and edit in peace 😀 )

On another note, Enori has a week from hell and broke his laptop among other things. We have a stand-in translator, so the schedule should not be affected much. And let’s be honest, most of the delays this month are on me anyway.


Now to a more interesting subject. The weekly puzzle! We have some very evil people on Discord. Capital ‘E’ Evil. They whisper honeyed words and tempt me to make you solve calculus level math.

Oh how hard is it to resist giving you something like that.

How hard…

Hmm give it a try?

So, is the correct answer

Take this evil thing away from me! Heeelp! This is not the chapter.
Look at all the cute little ponies!
Can I have more Rion please?
