Novel Summary (heavily adapted from MAL): We join our heroes in Club Building Room 401: five seemingly normal high school students. They are brought together and tied by the Cultural Research Club, and spend time together as best friends. Each of them have their own unique personalities, and though they might not always agree with each other, they never leave anyone behind.
All is well, until they’re confronted by a supernatural entity calling himself “Heartseed”. Heartseed has taken a liking to the club members, and demands to see them become more “fascinating”, threatening consequences otherwise. Do the students take Heartseed seriously? What will happen to them?
This is the story of five students, five kids, five humans, five lives intertwining with each other as their friendship is put to the ultimate test.
We’re proud to be the group that will, together with defan, help keep this series’s translation alive, and are looking forward to the great material that is sure to come out of this effort. A full chapter is already posted on the site, so get going and start reading! As always, due to the large workload involved in translating a series, please remember to say thanks to the translator when you’re taking a break from reading.
NOTE: We will not be starting this project from the beginning – instead, we will be starting from Volume 5, and we encourage anybody who wants to start at the beginning to read Volumes 1-4 on Baka-Tsuki.
Hello! Hope everyone is doing well. It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve made one of these. Anyways, we have a need for additional help with our graphical work right now (possibly related to some new projects ooh~). Specifically, the work we’re looking for is the creation of the banners that you see at the top of all our sites. If that sounds like something you’d be interested in, either go fill out our application form on our Recruitment Page and upload some samples of your work to our mediafire or send an email with your work to firstname.lastname@example.org

Novel Summary (from MAL): “Help me find my brother Chris. You can help solve anything can’t you?”
Toushirou is a barista working in Tokyo, which has been isolated after it transformed into another realm. One day a mysterious girl who looks exactly like his first love Fleu, who he had been searching continuously for, appears in front of him. However, perhaps because of the fact that she lost her memories, she claims to be Flika, and completely unlike Fleu, has an extremely free spirited personality!?
As someone who also takes up odd jobs, he accepted the request to look for Chris, but in the process discovers the truth behind the identity of the young girl and the Other World.
In order to take back what this young man lost and to retrieve the young girl’s lost memories, the two head towards the center of the Other World!
The Other World, Bar Fantasy begins!!!
The full prologue and a part of the first chapter are already posted. Please go take a look! And be sure to thank the translator for his hard work when you get a chance.
As for the puzzle, solution was to use the NATO alphabet (the passage was chock full of words from that alphabet, so that should’ve clued you in). The pictures up top spell out TINYURL (tango india november yankee uniform romeo lima) and the order in which NATO alphabet words appear in the paragraph of text tells you the tinyurl key. Congrats to those who figured this out!
It’s our pleasure to present to you our full translation of Murasakiiro no Qualia! You can start reading it here.
Qualia is split into three arcs: two main arcs and an epilogue arc. If the first few chapters seem to read like straight slice of life to you, they should; but rest assured that it’s only a matter of time before things will get insanely screwy and wtf-is-happening-i-dont-even. Qualia is also somewhat notorious in the fandom for presenting a lot of science and philosophy that is a bit too far on the technical side to be considered purely “pop science” – I worked hard to present these parts in as clear and engaging a way as possible, and I hope you have fun with them (and maybe learn a thing or two as well).
A huge thanks to the technical team, and especially swhp and Yarn, for getting the new site up to snuff enough for us to open a project. More features should pop up on these new sites as time goes on, and we will slowly be opening more projects there and making the transition over for existing projects. Also a big thanks to our editor for this project, fullsalvo.
This volume represents a lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated people. We all hope you enjoy this journey with us.
In less than 24 hours we will be posting the entirety of Qualia the Purple (the entire series, translated for your reading pleasure). Look forward to it!
