Hi and welcome to our 7th anniversary release!
Yes, it’s been 7 fun years since our founder, Sylvie, started this site for all of us, fans and staff alike. If you’re out there watching Sylvie, we miss you!
I want to thank all the fans as well as our past and present staff for being with us through all these years. Without all of you, we wouldn’t be the group that we are today. So let’s see how many more years we can keep this going!
Like previous years, I have warm wishes from some of the staff as well:
Happy 7th anniversary!! All the best to everyone this year…
To me this place is paradise
Hope more members will be add up into this family tree
Hope all of us stay in here for long long time
–> with Love Plchat (editor)
Another wonder year everyone!! Happy 7th Anniversary Esthetique!!!! Individual commitment to a group effort, that is what makes a great team work. I’m proud to work with such an amazing team, and look forward to the future.
Hugs! Blue Rose (editor)

May this year be awesome as well!!

Esthetique has reached its 7th Heaven! Thanks to our readers who have supported us and keep Esthetique going for this long. I’m happy to have been part of this community for almost as long as this group has existed. Happy Anniversary!
Keep enjoying our work. -Shekyl-(Proofreader & Spanish translator)
And off we are to new heights leaving a trail of star dust on our path.
Glittering, glittering crumbles left behind as if to point to a possible future.
But we pay no heed and burst forth into the unknown.
That’s what Esthetique stands for!
Arrogant me wishing all the best and a grandiose Birthday to the team as a whole.
It’s great working and chatting with you all!!
Rumble! Rumble! Thunderbolt in the making…

Happy Birthday Esthetique! Lucky number 7! May we be as lucky for the next 7 too! -Rosieposie- (editor)
With that said, I shamelessly ask for help. Especially Japanese translators and editors. We can also use Chinese and Korean translators too because I have some new projects that I would like to start. However, these new projects will have to wait until we can get some more of our current projects finished up. So please, please email us. We don’t bite, really. Well, you might get a chocolate cake thrown at you, but really, we’re harmless. *Looks at the glaring staff members waiting to get revenge for that comment.* Okay, so maybe it was me ready to throw the cake, but we do have a fun time playing tag in the shoutbox, LOL.
Now on to our releases! Unfortunately, I don’t have a ton of chapters for all of you, but I do have enough to hopefully keep you all reading for a few hours so that you can get your manga fix! First off, I’d like to thank our friends over at Tsuki Scans for working with us for the past 1 1/2 years on Boku wo Tsutsumu Tsuki no Hikari and now on Love Trap, which we have started from the beginning again. Please make sure that you visit them to give them you’re thanks for these 2 projects. I also want to send out a thank you to the staff who used to make up Serenus Dreamers for introducing us to Love Trap. May we give it the love that it deserves.
Next we say goodbye to an old friend. After 5 years, we’ve finally finished this project. Thanks to everyone who worked on it I know we’ll all miss it. BUT… I just learned recently there is a sequel called Chicken Cutlet Prince, which is being scanlated by Luu Scanlations. Go to their site and check it out. I know I will be soon to get my fix.
Of course, I can’t forget the next chapter of Fated to Love You for this anniversary. I’ve had too many fans bombing me with emails on when the next chapter of this will be released. Well, here it is! *Dangles it out like a piece of meat to the rabid fangirls (and guys).* I’ve got a great editor who decided to make this final volume her baby, so expect more releases of it in the near future.
Lastly we have the last 2 chapters of volume 1 of Mayonaka ni Kiss. I want to thank the staff over at Evil Flowers for helping us with the extra, 130cm Kara Merry Christmas from this project. Volume 2 was going to be a joint project between our groups, but like us, they are also plagued with lack of staff. So I wish them the best of luck and hopefully we’ll both have fans who will apply to be new staffies and help us bring out more releases.
Well, I had better go. My electricity keeps trying to go out on me because my area of the country is getting hit with the snowpocalypse of 2013. Yes, it is a snowpocalypse for my area because we just got a foot of snow last Thursday and now we’re to get up to 20 inches on top of it today. In the last 20 years, my area has been lucky to see 5 inches of snow let alone the 20+ inches we’re getting. Oh well, the kiddies are happy. All I heard in the background yesterday was this insane chanting… No school, No school, No school. *sigh* So if you too are getting hit with the snownami, I feel for you. I know I was probably hearing your chanting along with my kids’.
Take care, stay warm, and stay safe. We’ll see you all next month.
We are still looking for raws for the following projects:
Projects in dire need of editors: Unfortunately, most of them.
If any of you are interested in helping us out, please email me at email@example.com or go to the join us page above and download and complete the test for that position and send it back to me.
Also, as a reminder, we have a 3 day waiting period for hosting our projects. All downloads can be found in the forum until the 3 days are up and then I will post them to the main page. So please do not upload our projects to other hosting sites or online readers until the waiting period is over. Thanks.
