About this blog

Hello, I’m Ceecile. I am a French citizen, half Japanese from my mother’s side and 1/4 Algerian from my dad’s side.
With that said, my mother never taught me Japanese until I was 16 and by then I couldn’t really be bothered, and then she passed away. Which means I can’t speak Japanese, my oral comprehension is below average, I know furiganas and most common kanjis but since I don’t know Japanese grammar it basically means that I can’t read it anyway. I am currently trying to learn, although I find it harder to learn now with what little I know than if I was starting from scratch.

All this to say that I can’t do summaries from raws. I summarize mostly from the ones that are licensed in France. Some are still being published even though they are long done in Japan because the publisher Panini manga is really slow (like 1 volume a year, every 2 years, or my favourite “Oops who knows when?”). I’ll probably prioritize those that are already completed.

You should know that the official French translations are often sometimes not so good especially for a certain publisher which I will not name *cough*Panini manga*cough**cough*. But I don’t think it matters too much as far as summaries go.
Finally my English is, I would say, above average but I am not fluent so there will be mistakes and awkward sentences. I’m also not an expert writer, this is purely amateur work so don’t look for great piece of work with beautiful sentences. Please bear with me.

Ah and you probably can tell already but I pretty much suck at computer stuff which is why this blog will be the most basic thing you can imagine. I’ll try to make it easy to navigate.

Hum that’s pretty much it.

  2. BonjOur! Ton site est tres sympa. J’aime bien parce qu’On va direct a l’essentiel et si l’histoire commence a trainer (Yuugure Light par exemple) on ne perd pas trop de temps… J’essaye aussi d’apprendre le japonais, ganbatte, ne?


  3. Enjoyed you summaries of Shitsuren chocolatier. I was able to read only up to chapter 4 online so I really am desperate to find a way to read all. I only know it is blocked by licensing problems but I can’t tell if it will be published with english translation–if not then why do they protect it so fiercely? Would be grateful if you have heard anything about that. I am not a big reader of manga so I don’t know how to find this out.


  4. Hey Ceecile! I’m Avelys, admin of Shoujohearts. I believe my friend DNJS contacted you in regards of joining our team? Feel free to e-mail me at shoujohearts@gmail.com to talk some more 🙂 We can talk on skype too and gush over shoujo together~ Je parle un peux de francais aussi!


  5. Hi Ceecile!

    I know that Raff recently posted a request for some magazines. I was considering ordering them online and sending them to her….but they were pretty difficult to find 😦

    In the past, you’ve mentioned not having a scanner for providing Raff raws and stuff. I know that Raff does so much with Otakumole, and you’re always kind enough to provide previews, so if possible I think I may be able to send you a scanner. I have Amazon Prime and there are some scanners that are available for free global shipping with my membership, so if you live outside the U.S. shipping should be fine too.

    I’m not sure if you’re interested, but if you are you can email me at [Edited out by admin] ^^

    Andrea 🙂

  8. Hello Ceecile!
    Sorry to bother you, but do you perhaps provide manga raws? I’m admin of an Italian scanlation group and I’d ask if you could give us some scans of various magazines. Of course, we would credit you. You can contact me by e-mail, even if it’s a negative answer: harebarekazokuscans@gmail.com
