Donation Drive

MONEY RAISED, THANK YOU!

Founding graphical designer Yen-sama’s computer has bitten the dust. To this end, we have three entire books worth of translated material that we are unable to get online.

To raise funds Yen has taken to selling lots of her Sailor Moon merchandise, but she is still about $200 short of what she needs to purchase a new computer to get back to work.

Over the years Yen has worked tirelessly to get Miss Dream’s scanlations online. Without her, there would be no Miss Dream. Period. None of the stuff you can download and enjoy at this site would be here if not for Yen’s encouragement and years of hard work.

Please consider donating to Yen’s ChipIn campaign or purchasing something from her sales page. The sooner we can get this money raised, the sooner the Miss Dream project can get almost 600 pages of translated material online for your viewing pleasure.

Thank you in advance for helping us in our time of need. We really do appreciate it – and we look forward to releasing more manga goodies for download soon!

Monday Night Raws: Zettai, Kare wo Ubatte Miseru!

Happy Miss Dream Monday!

This week, before we kick off the highly anticipated Project Animanga, we are sharing something very rare.

Please enjoy a copy of Zettai, Kare wo Ubatte Miseru – the last of a series of books written by Marie Koizumi and illustrated by Sailor Moon’s author, Naoko Takeuchi.

This book is incredibly rare and difficult to find. Only a handful of collectors know about its existence and are lucky enough to own a copy. It had a very limited print in 1998 and many of the copies have significantly deteriorated over time. When I found a copy at a good price online, I immediately snagged it with the intention of digitizing it for longevity.

Sincere thanks are owed to Brad of Moonkitty.net, who was kind enough to forward this book to me in New York since the seller would ship within Japan only.

Marie Koizumi and Naoko Takeuchi collaborated on a series of illustrated girls’ romance novels published by Kodansha between 1994 and 1998. The two manga authors remain close friends today.

I hope everyone will enjoy this download. Have a great week, and see you this Thursday for PGSM goodies! :)
