May 2011 Chapters
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.
The theme for next month’s contest will a little different…again!
For June’s contest, we will be holding a singing competition. We will have potentially six winners, two from each of the following songs:
- It’s My Life by Bon Jovi
- Swallowtail Butterfly by Mayday
- Free Choice (Pick any song)
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, which should be plenty of time for you to warm up your vocal cords. Send in your mp3s to firstname.lastname@example.org !
Anyone who frequents our forum may have noticed that the address has recently changed from zetaboards to forum.princerevolution.org. No need to worry about broken links though; the old site will automatically redirect to the correct one.
We also have a brand new section of our site: Fan Creations. Here we will be posting HP and LSK fanart and fanfiction galleries. For fanart, each piece links back to the DeviantArt/webpage it comes from (click on the thumbnail to see the full image). For fanfiction, we will be posting one-shots and the first chapters or stories, with links to the next chapter. Every piece of art and story is posted with the permission of the artist/author. (If you believe there has been an error, please report it at email@example.com) We’d also love to have our readers help add to the gallery! If you have a piece to submit please use the submission buttons located at the bottom of the galleries. If you’re submitting someone else’s work, you must know the artist/author’s name and how we can contact them.
If you’ll remember, a few months ago we announced that we’d be translating a selling an LSK doujin by Yukisora. We can tell you now that the doujin, The Wonderful Sun Knight, is in printing and will be available in about a month and a half. Unfortunately, we also have some bad news. For one, Yuki has decided to place the final price at $9 USD. She has also decided to do one printing of 50 copies for now, and we can’t guarantee that there’d be another printing for quite some time—and even then only if there is a lot of interest in more copies. We might be able to print a volume when Yuki is done with all the chapters, but here’s a fair warning: we can’t guarantee that a volume will be printed, and it will take 1-2 years at the least before a volume will be done. As such, if you know you want a copy of the doujin, we recommend ordering one from this batch.
To order, please fill out this form: Order form

We know that the high shipping fees has stopped a lot of people from buying the doujin, but after discussing with Yukisora, we managed to reduce the shipping fees for non-US readers by a considerable amount. The un-registered post is now an average of about $3 and the registered post is around $4. The shipping fees for US, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia readers remained the same at around $2~$3. (All price quoted is in USD.)
And finally one last quick note: We’re in need of more translators and Chinese/English editors! If you’re interested in helping out, head on over to the Recruitment page.
