(Isya) Rule of Zero Chapters 3 and 4

And now we finally have the next chapters available for purchase. If you’re just purchasing a single chapter in this series, I highly recommend you buy chapter 4. Chapter four is fully colored and fully uncensored, she worked really hard on making this one look good. If chapter four sells really well, Isya will do more uncensored/fully colored works. If you have any questions or comments you’d like to leave Isya, you can comment here and we’ll send them to her. Or you can tweet her yourself. She’s on vacation right now, but I’m sure she’d love to see some messages from her fans when she returns to Japan. I’ve decided to provide a more detailed FAQ section to this to answer some questions and respond to feedback.

Where can I buy it? Fakku

FAQ:

Questions regarding the price: Originally we were planning on making chapters 1-3 cheaper and making 4 more expensive due to it being fully colored/uncensored. But it was suggested that we standardize the price across all chapters instead. We will adjust chapter length and value to fit this better in the future. We are also considering doing a censored release of these chapters on DLSite at a lower price for those interested in supporting her there.

Why Fakku?: I don’t remember if I ever responded to this. If I did, it was probably on /u/ or Dynasty at some point. When we were first talking to Isya we considered other sites such as DLSite/Amazon but we ultimately chose to try Fakku for the following reasons:

  • Royalties: Fakku offered a far better artist/publisher cut than she could ever get on DLSite.
  • Exposure: This is something I think a lot of people don’t think about. But if we only used DLSite, she would get a fraction of the sales. Fakku has a ton of buyers that have never even heard of her, so she is able to reach a lot more potential buyers by using the site.
  • Credibility: We had talked to Isya in the past, but her knowledge of the scanlation industry was non existent. You need to consider that a lot of Japanese artists don’t understand scanlation outside of foreigners stealing their work and redistributing it without their permission. We had to gain her trust, and having a proven publisher on our side made this a lot easier.
  • Uncensored works: We cannot sell uncensored works on DLSite. We wanted to eventually move to doing uncensored works since that is usually one of the prime reasons to buy a western release of a doujinshi.
  • Sales: This goes back to exposure, but if we didn’t sell much of her works in the first stint. We probably would have stopped there. She was skeptical from the start at how profitable something like this is. It isn’t as simple as just uploading old scans we did of hers. Everything must come directly from her computer (not scanned) and be worked on and translated recently. It’s a lot more work than I ever originally imagined.
  • Final notes: Keep in mind, we are only a Publisher posting her works on Fakku. I do not work for them, I just use them as a site to distribute works on. So anything they do is beyond me. I don’t follow any of it.

How many have we sold?: When we first started with her Precure doujinshi, we kept our expectations low. With them being both censored and parody works, we figured they’d just sell a few copies. Both Isya and I were surprised when we sold 150+ of each doujinshi. A higher number than we had anticipated. Which is why for our next project, we decided doing originals would be even better.

What impact has it had?: Ever since selling her Precure works and starting to sell Rules of Zero. Isya has tossed around the idea of getting an office to work on yuri on a more full time basis. Currently she has to balance her job and drawing at the same time. With so many con deadlines for her to meet in Japan, she often ends up having to rush to get it done in time. With the help of English sales, she may be able to achieve her dream of being a full time artist.

(Isya) Rule of Zero Chapters 1 and 2

After a long time waiting, we’re finally able to announce our next collaboration with Isya (434notfound). We will be publishing her original manga series “Rule of Zero” for you all. We have two chapters ready for you now, and you can expect two more to be ready by the end of April/early May. If you’re new to the site or don’t remember. Over a year ago we reached out to Isya to help her release her works legally in English to the west. It’s been a learning experience for us all, but it’s been an amazing one.

Getting to work with an artist directly has taught me a lot about the process and how much effort goes into making something like this. Isya has gone above and beyond to try her best for you all. We took your feedback from her first releases and we’re working on improving from them. The chapters featured here are mostly decensored, and the next ones were created fully uncensored with English sales in mind. A little preview from chapter 4 if you want [warning: super lewd!]. Due to the lewdness of this project, it’ll probably only be on Fakku. DLSite doesn’t allow you to show the naughty bits. I put a FAQ down below along with a link to the sales site. I hope you all enjoy!

FAQ section:

Where can I buy it? Fakku

How much does this cost? All chapters will be $5.95

Will there be a printed book for this/other releases? No, isya has no plans to do any printed books in English at this time. We would need a significant number of people interested to make it viable to print.

Release 501: Five years of Yuri-ism

The next milestone I never thought we’d hit is finally here. I should stop commenting on how old these milestones make me feel, but then maybe I’d feel old reminiscing about how I used to complain about feeling old. It’s a slippery slope. I think I’ll just have Comaku do most of the talking on this release.

Oh, I may have not finished the torrent yet. I’ve decided I want to reorganize it a bit. When I first made it, we were mostly working on doujinshi or at least stuff that didn’t have much of a continuation. Having a sfw/nsfw split kinda ruins that, and the filenames have gotten too long as well. I will need to trim them down a bit.

Lastly, Isya’s original series will be out this month. I still don’t have a date yet, but I have submitted the required materials for publishing. So perhaps as early as later this week? Isya has worked really hard on this one. The later chapters will be Isya’s first time doing fully uncensored works, along with delicious full color bits!

Release 500: Five Hundred Release Smutstravaganza

We finally did it, we made it all the way to five hundred. Oh and Yuri-ism’s 5th birthday is on April 4th! So what’s next? Well, hopefully by our birthday I will have a new batch torrent ready for you all. I hope to have some other little things ready for our birthday too, like insights from our team, responses to questions and such. But for now let’s just celebrate making it this far. It may just seem like a number to some of you, but it’s taken a lot of damn work over the years to get here. Yuri-ism has gone without any major break, change in leadership or loss of staff this entire time. I’d like to think that means we’re doing something good.

We were gonna have a hangout immediately after this release, but a lot of our staff is too busy to attend tonight. With me not feeling the best either, I’ve decided to reschedule it to Friday the 31st at 8pm EDT. I apologize for the last minute change! Please accept this full color goodness instead.

Release 499: Catch Love

Only one release to go until 500! The wait won’t be long at all either. We’ll be releasing a Girls und Panzer doujin this Friday to reach our milestone. We’ll also be doing our monthly hangout on Friday at 8pm EDT. I’ll mention this again on Friday’s release, but I probably won’t have the 500 batch torrent ready for a few weeks. I don’t have anyone helping me with it this time and there’s a lot of other stuff I gotta get done before that. But I hope to have it ready by Yuri-ism’s birthday (April 4th). Anyway, enjoy this Mira release. See you all Friday!

P.S. Not gonna use uploaded links anymore since the site generally sucks. Just mega/ours for now. So I apologize to the three people that used it.
