Hello everyone!

We have good news for those of you who live outside the US: YukiSora, the doujin artist, has received her copies of the doujin. She has agreed to handle the shipping for all non-US buyers, so we’re opening ordering for you! If you would like to buy copy of the doujin, head on over to this page. The final price Yuki decided on is $9 USD, plus $2-3 for shipping.

For our US readers, sorry but you’ll still have to wait one more month. The 50 copies that are being sent to us will be just for US readers though, so you don’t have to worry about us running out of stock =]

(And for any new readers, you can find more information about the doujin here.)

This month we’ve update the Fan Creations section with a couple new submissions. In the Fanfiction Gallery we have a new story from chicaalterego called Knight Apprentice’s Journal that they have dedicated to PR!, so go check it out! In the Fanart Gallery there are two new images from larka1121, Fire Pheonix and Meatbun and The Knights Meet. There’s also a preview image for Blique’s fanvideo Rainbow Love Letters. You can follow the link on that video or go ahead and watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LwQDX9AlSQ.

On that note, we’re actually working on putting up a separate Video Gallery in Fan Creations. With luck it’ll be up sometime this month, so if you have anything you’d like to submit, be on the look out for another update!

As mentioned in another post last month, we also badly need Chinese/English editors! For that reason we’re temporarily shutting down translator applications until we get caught up with editing. If you’d like to translate, feel free to apply for C/E editor and request to be moved to translating later on.

Happy reading!

Calling All Linguists!

posted in: Updates | 13

We are in desperate need for more Chinese/English editors! We have a number of both HP and SK chapters that are translated, but are backed up in the editing process because we only have two official C/Es for them to go through. So if you know Chinese (and reasonably good English) and would like to help speed up our rate of release, please head on over to our recruitment page and apply!

Update: June 2011 – New Schedule and Other News

posted in: Updates | 5
June 2011 Chapters
  1. ½ Prince V5C3: Neurotic and DanDan
  2. The Legend of Sun Knight V2C2: “Smile, Wave, and Be the Church’s Human Billboard”

Hello again everyone! For those of you who didn’t see the New Schedule update, we’re changing our update schedule to spread the chapter updates out a bit. We will now be using the following schedule:

Week 1: Monthly Update post
Week 2: First Chapter
Week 3: Second Chapter
Week 4: Monthly Contest post

When we post 3+ chapters, we’ll spread the posting out evenly over those two middle weeks. The monthly content post will generally have information on the next month’s contest. This gives you 5 weeks notice as opposed to 4 weeks you’ve had previously.

Speaking of which, details for the June 2011 Singoff contest have been posted! Check them out here.

And finally, the doujin (details here) has been printed and the copies are being shipped. Said shipping will be taking longer than initially estimated however—we should get them in the beginning of August. More details will be posted as we get closer to that time.

Happy reading!

June 2011 Contest: Singoff and Prize Giveaways

posted in: Updates | 8

If you read the monthly update post from earlier this month, you should be aware of June’s singing competition.

Again, the categories are

  • It’s My Life – Bon Jovi
  • Swallowtail Butterfly – Mayday
  • Free Response (Pick any song you like)

The three winners will receive TWO chapters (can be one of each or two of one series). The three runner-ups will receive one chapter of their choice. Judging will be done by the staff and the deadline will be June 30. Send in your mp3s to amgine@princerevolution.org !

Some readers have been asking various questions, so here’s the answers to some FAQs:

Q: Am I allowed to submit entries to more than one category?
A: Sure. We’ll just accept the one we like best, so there’s no harm in two or more songs.

Q: How do I record my voice?
A: First, you should acquire an instrumental version of the song, if available. Next, you need to get a recording software. Audacity is a good, free option. There’s plenty of tutorials on how to record and mix a song using Audacity — just search on Youtube. Optionally, make sure you either have a good microphone, or apply some sort of noise-cancelling effect to reduce the level of static in your recording. (Google is your friend, but here’s a good place to start.)

Q: Where can I find the lyrics to Swallowtail Butterfly?
A: Here, you can find the Chinese lyrics with pinyin and English translation to Swallowtail Butterfly.
If you’re still having trouble figuring out the pronunciations of the pinyin, try listening to the recording done by the band.

Q: Am I allowed to get creative with my entries?
A: Sure. Remixes, mashups, English transliterations are all welcome if that’s how you roll.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to post them here.

Lastly, I’d like to remind readers who like prizes to check the Staff Blog more often. I will occasionally post some giveaways or mini-riddles to spice things up over there. There’s a random giveaway going on right now!

New Schedule and Second Life Project Update

posted in: Updates | 13

After some discussion, we’ve decided to change our normal release schedule a bit to spread things out more. From this month on, we’ll be using the following schedule:

Week 1: Monthly Update post
Week 2: First Chapter
Week 3: Second Chapter
Week 4: Monthly Contest post

When we post 3+ chapters, we’ll spread the posting out evenly over those two middle weeks. So, by this schedule, the next HP chapter will be up around the 15th!

Some of you may remember the 1/2 Prince video game project, Second Life Project, that we mentioned a while ago. If you’re new to it, you can check it out here: http://s7.zetaboards.com/SecondLifeProject/index/. We also have a number of new screenshots up, which can be found in this thread. At the moment, we are recruiting more RPGmaker VX designers, artists, composers, writers, and one new position, explained in detail below.

Currently were are looking for one person to fill an intern-like position. This position requires no background skills, but we do need someone with a lot of free time on their hands and good attention to detail. If you’re interested, please email secondlifeprjct@gmail.com with a brief description of who you are, why you’d like to help out, and how much time you have to help. No more assistant applications are being accepted. Thanks to those who applied!
