Some bad news

Well, first of all, sorry for not having posted anything for so long. Real life has been at me like a narutard on a new chapter for these last two months. I'm not going to use it as an excuse, though, I could have found the time to translate the Kuroko chapters somehow, but the thing is, I wasn't at all motivated, and just don't feel like translating anything right now.

So yeah, that's the bad news, I am officially taking an indefinite break from translating. I can't say for how long, but I doubt I'll get anything done until the end of the year, at least. When I was still just a fan, it always did hurt when I saw a series being dropped because of a lack of translator, but now that I'm in the position of the translator, I can say it hurts even more -_- I can only hope you guys will manage to find another translator for it.

So yeah, I can't even begin to tell you how sorry I am, but it's here that I'm taking my leave. Thanks to you all for reading all these translations of mine. I'm pretty sure we will meet again someday~

Thanks for all your hard work in the past either ES21 or Kuroko. I hope you still continue to read Kuroko, I see some potential yuri with the introduction of a second female character recently ;-)
