Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate it! I hope this finds all your bellies stuffed and waiting for those with crazy parents or even yourselves to go out for the awesome Black Friday deals (even though it’s not Friday yet).

Today I thought I’d give you a chapter of a project we haven’t released since 2012. Sorry it’s been so long, but losing Korean translators and the editor going MIA for so long, it’s been impossible to complete. So here for your enjoyment I bring you the next chapter of The Delinquent Lesson. I have 1 more chapter that will be ready for Christmas, but we need help in finding a Korean translator to finish the last 3 chapters of this project. That’s all we need. Just a translator. So if you are a Korean translator or know someone who is, send them our way. The only thing I ask is for those interested,  take the Korean translator test. Then email it to me at esthetiquestaff@gmail.com and I’ll get back to you right away.

I also have a little something from Pure Gold Aristocrat. So enjoy everyone and have a good holiday. Stay safe and we’ll see you again for Christmas.

Happy Halloween!

Arrrggghhh Mateys! Happy Halloween! This is Captain Kat and my ragtag crew to bring you a few releases for Halloween this year! I decided to take my scurvy crew on a raid of Esthetique’s vaults to find what treasures lie in wait! And treasure we did find, along with a cursed object or two! I found us a chapter of Pure Gold Aristocrat for the taking and my first mate hkgaines found us a cursed chapter of The Horror Mansion guarding it. Shiver me timbers I can’t believe she brought a cursed object aboard this ship. Now my mangy crew is telling me we are going to become part of Davy Jones’ locker because of it, the superstitious lot. Well, I dare you all to brave the horror of The Horror Mansion and the mafia in the last chapter of volume 1 of Pure Gold Aristocrat. Let’s see if you’re braver than my crew of misfits!

Good luck on your journey and maybe… just maybe… if you live, we’ll see you next month! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Crystal Dragon release

Hi everyone!

I wasn’t expecting to make another release this soon, but thanks to our friends over at Wingtip Cafe we’re happy to bring you the last chapter of Crystal Dragon v10. I’d also like to thank hkgaines, who pushed this chapter through editing amidst her busy schedule to help get it out.

Happy reading!

Belated September Release

Welcome back everyone! I was supposed to make this release at the end of September, but laziness and a reaaaaalllly good book kept me a little preoccupied. Sorry about that, please take it easy on the beatings. :)

For September’s release I’ve got 2 chapters for you from 2 projects that haven’t seen a release in a number of years. Another thing that I need to apologize for. The first is 12 Months, which hasn’t seen a release since 2011. We’ve got it all translated and I should have the next chapter out to you by the end of October so look for ch04 then. The other is from Koi Moyou, which we haven’t released since 2009. There’s only 1 story left and it hasn’t been translated yet because it’s really hard to find a Japanese translator who doesn’t mind smut. Please oh, please if there is anyone out there who can help with the last story I would be extremely happy to have another project done. It would also keep us from waiting about 5 more years to finish the project.

So enjoy everyone! I’ll see you at the end of the month for our Halloween release and I promise not to be late!

Please wait to register for the new forum…

It would really help us right now if only the staff members are signing up for new accounts until we have everything up and running. We are assuming that new accounts that are popping up that we don’t recognize are spammers and we will probably banning the IPs. These have been popping up ever since we activated the forum and I’ve already banned around 20 or 30 myself.

We will announce when everything is ready so keep an eye on either the homepage or our Twitter account (click the link at the top!)

Staff members need to register ASAP or contact us at esthetiquestaffATgmail.com so that we make sure we have you down as active.

Thanks!

We’re back!

For those of you in the states, I hope you’re enjoying your labor day weekend! It’s so hot here I’m wishing I was at the pool.

I know it’s been awhile, but we are back. At least enough to bring you some releases. These chapters were supposed to be part of our July release, but of course chaos reigned supreme around here for 2 months. For now our forum is still closed, but I hope to eventually open it back up to everyone. However, we will no longer be hosting releases from other groups. Too many groups now have online readers and so we felt that it was time to free up our server space for our own releases. Once I open it back up again, I hope that everyone will come to visit. I really miss talking to everyone.

To our staff members who I’ve been unable to contact, please get in touch with me at esthetiquestaff@gmail.com so that I know you are still active.

Even though we could really use the help in getting our projects released, I’m currently not accepting any applications for staff until I can get the site completely up and running. Right now that’s taking up all of my free time, which isn’t much. As soon as I can, I will open the positions up again.

I’m still going to ask that you not put up our chapters to online readers for 3 days. We’d like to see people come and visit, stay a while. We don’t bite. Well maybe 1 or 2 of the staff members might.  Our staff members love to hear from all of you on how you like the chapters they are working on. So if you can drop a line to let them know, it might motivate them to help get them released faster.

On that note, we have 2 projects that we are going to release today. Thanks to our friends over at Tsuki Scans we’re able to bring you another entire volume of Boku wo Tsutsumu Tsuki no Hikari! We are now caught up with the Japanese releases. However, I do know that volume 14 will be coming out in Japan on September 19th and I’ll be ordering at that time. Hopefully, we’ll get that entire volume out before the end of the year.

The other project that I have for you is another chapter of Chang an Fantastic Night. I don’t know about you, but I love all the bishies. Watch out for the drunken rowdiness in this chapter. Hopefully you won’t come out with a hangover by the end of it.

Take care everyone and I hope to see you at the end of the month with another release!

We’re Almost There!

In case you haven’t noticed, Esthetique has been having a few “issues”. First off, our server company decided to close and we had a very short period of time to get a transfer to the new service. In that transfer, our databases were damaged and we seemed to have lost everything in the forum and site.

BUT…

We managed to save all of our edited files, raw files, and translations. That means that, in a few weeks, we should have everything back up and few extra surprises!  We plan an overhaul to the site design as well.  As of now, the links don’t work because the pages don’t technically exist yet! We’ll be setting those up as quickly as possible.

As much as it breaks our heart… we were unable to salvage our forum *sigh*  The individual that purchased the software program is no longer with us and we couldn’t contact her to update the info with the company.  We can’t afford to upgrade at this time so we are relying on a new board software and program. We will have it open for new registration soon.

All staff members need to contact the admins as soon as possible (esthetiquestaff@gmail.com) so that you can get setup and acquainted with the new layouts.
