This month we have a couple of important announcements. First of all, this month is PR!’s two year anniversary! The first chapter of ½ Prince was posted by Erialis, our founder, on April 25th, 2009. So here’s to another great two years of translating! =]

We hope those of you who participated in the Easter Egg Hunt had fun! If you missed it, you can check it out here http://easter.princerevolution.org/egghunt/ (though obviously you can’t win). The blog post with the answers and statistics can be found here: http://www.princerevolution.org/easter-egghunt-analysis-and-walkthrough/. Would you guys be interested in doing something like this again?

The theme for this month’s monthly contest is as follows:

  • Fanfiction: “Outrageous” – Write a short original story involving Half Prince and/or Legend of Sun Knight characters in an outrageous scenario.
  • Fanart: “Outrageous” – Draw the craziest, most unusual Half Prince or Legend of Sun Knight fanart conceivable. Nothing inappropriate, please.

Update: April 2011 – Real Chapters, Twitter, and Monthly Contest

April 2011 Chapters
  1. The Legend of Sun Knight V2Prologue: The Sun Knight
  2. ½ Prince V5C1: The Title of Undefeatable King

Hello again everyone! First of all, our sincere apologies for the missing promised updates last month. About 98% of our staff members are students (and at least 50% university students), so we occasionally get inundated with work, especially around midterm season. We will, however, be striving hard to prevent such a lapse in the future. Additionally, we’ve decided to create a Twitter account so that the lapse in communication won’t happen again! We’ll be sure to post any little updates that occur and you can ask our staff any questions you like, e.g. “when will the next chapter coming out?”, “are you guys even alive?”, “may I have your autograph?”. (Well, maybe not that last one.) The account is princerevolutio (thanks to the 15 character limit and princerev already being taken).

We hope you guys enjoyed the April Fools chapter ;) The real ones up now and the joke ones have been moved to the blog section. And for those of you who didn’t quite get the jokes, check out these links: http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/rickroll and http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/rebecca-black-friday. If you read the April Fool’s LSK chapter, you can skip ahead to the last line. If you read the April Fool’s Half Prince chapter, we highly recommend you reread from the beginning. Continued

Update: February 2011 – Doujin Store News!

February 2011 Chapters
  1. The Legend of Sun Knight V1Extra: “No Matter What Happens, the Sun Knight is Perfect”
  2. ½ Prince V4Extra: The Sun should Shine in the Fair Sky
  3. The Legend of Sun Knight V1Epilogue: Character Introductions

For a little while now we’ve been thinking about doujin fan comics. Doujin, for those of you who don’t know, are amateur, unlicensed comics. In Asian countries such as Japan and Taiwan, they are extremely popular. There are entire conventions dedicated just to the sale of doujin. In Western countries, however, doujin are quite rare. A quick search on ebay shows that most doujin sell for about $30 USD, which is quite expensive, especially if you don’t speak the language they’re written in.

So we started thinking. What if we worked with doujin artists to translate their work and sell them internationally? We looked into copyright laws and what this would entail, then contacted Yu Wo and asked for her permission to translate and sell the doujin, since fan comics are considered a derivative work. Then finally, we started contacting a few doujin artists. And now we present to you our final, though still in-progress idea:

We will be translating and selling The Legend of Sun Knight doujin fan comics. At the moment we’ve reached an agreement with Yukisora to translate her LSK doujin fan comic, though we hope to work with more artists in the future. You can find some examples of the doujin’s pages below. The first doujin that we are selling is the re-drawing of The Legend of Sun Knight Volume 1 Chapter 1 into comic style.

The doujin is 24 page B5 size and it will sell for about $9 USD a comic, plus shipping and handling. Shipping fees will be about $2~$3 within the US, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. For readers not from the previously mentioned locations, you will be offered 2 choices: about $3 USD for un-registered post and about $4 for registered post (trackable). Please note that this is a rough estimation of shipping fees, it can be more or less depending on your location.

Payments will be done through Paypal. This will mean that you’ll be able to pay via credit card, debit card, and bank transfer. We will also accept money order and checks by post. Those who wish to pay by bank transfer should apply for a Personal Paypal account, and then nominate your bank account to verify the Paypal account. We do not accept direct wire transfers for now. For more information on linking abank account to Paypal, please go to this link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=xpt/Marketing/general/NewConsumerLink-outside and https://www.paypal-offers.com.au/addbankaccount.asp

Before we fully go through with this, we want to get an idea about how many of you will be interested in buying the doujin. If you know that you want to purchase the doujin when it comes out, please fill out this form: Order form. Please note that this is a PLEDGE TO BUY the doujin fan comic when it is published. If you are not totally sure that you want to buy one, please DO NOT fill out the form! Additionally, we can assure you no third party will be able to access private information such as email and location info that you’ve provided.

That being said, the first 15 people who sign will be given a 10% discount on this first doujin. Additionally, Yukisora has offered to draw a new cover for the doujin if 200 people sign up! So if you’re interested, please sign the pledge! Continued
