I personally prefer good news first, so here goes: we’re picking up a new series! This is Kiyo in Kyoto: short and sweet episodes of a teenage cook working in a school for maiko(entertainers similar to geisha) in kyoto. Here’s 5 chapters to start off strong. Look forward to more in the near future!
Now, the bad news: Hiiragi Yutaka, artist behind Shinmai Shimai or foodgirls as some of us call it, announced that the series will be going on hiatus. Yutaka started experiencing back pain last spring and it’s gotten bad enough they feel it’s necessary to take a break. Here’s hoping for a swift recovery!
Note from Chansu: This isn’t the typical yuri series we usually do. But it’s about food and the translator thinks it’s a good project for while Food Girls is on hiatus
Reader: A link eventually will go here
I’ve heard about Hiragi Yutaka-san’s back pain last year, so I hope her recovery is going well. I sometimes go to her Twitter to see if there’s any updates, but I haven’t seen anything last time I checked. I really hope we get the food girls back soon.
i thought this group was dead, glad to see you all are still alive
