GC- Arabian Nights

*steps into LJ* Hello??? Someone still here?
I'm back for a little update. A while back, I lost almost all of my data in a double harddrive crash. Deciding that I'll never get the money to get it recovered professionally, I started playing around with it on my own - and yay, I'm getting at least a bit of the data back. Today, when I checked the drive, I'm saving stuff to - my GC Folder popped up. Most of it was corrupted, but one of my WIP states of this was still usable. So here you go. Don't expect a clean scanlation - As far as I've seen it's not even the cleaned up translation, but it appears to be complete and readable. Also it seems that I might be able to recover at least parts of the ANC chapters up to 15 - but don't expect this before october (If I had the time I wouldn't post wound up recoveries of the ALWL Chapter).

So here you go: Gorgeous Carat - Alifu laila wa laila (Arabian nights):

And if you ever wondered, how GC would look like, if it would be done in NPR, you can check here from time to time:
(I'm still working on getting Azura animatable, so no updates recently...)

Hello! What a lovely surprise! Sorry to hear about your computer, I know what that is like. Just wondering, are you planning to do the rest of Gorgeous Carat? I've been waiting for the English edition ever since I heard it was license but I haven't seen or heard anything in years.

Well, Tokyopop returned licenses years ago as they stated, so GCLE is back to unlicensed and I haven't heard of anyone willing to relicense it. There were some discussion throughout the past years to pick it up, but nothing really happened. Maybe we'll make it this time. I can recheck my old translations with the German edition, so cleaning it up a bit is possible without too much time effort. I can do basic cleaning, there is an offer to help in editing, so I'm optimistic, that something might happen soon. For ANC, I'll try to recover my already translated stuff and post it next month and if time allows, I'll go for translating what's missing - but no promises when that can be. Thanks to some part of the story and its not so common words in it (well at least I didn't know what "weapons of mass destruction" was in Japanese before), this can take a bit longer (it was one of the reason why I slowed down and put it on ice for so long). Would be nice to have a German release of this as well to speed things up, but unfortunatly so far there is no sign of Carlsen putting it in their program.
