It’s that time of year, I suppose.
What is this Aikatsu!-only Event? It’s a gathering of doujinshi artists that focuses on creating fan-made stories based on the anime Aikatsu! Schedule of these events vary and they can happen at least 2-3 times a year. In these events, rare event-only books are being sold, so we wish (again) for your support and get these rare books. Basically this is one of those donation drives that never gets anywhere.
AIKATSU!-ONLY EVENT 10
Last year we requested support for Event 9 and it didn’t turn out too well because we never got the money we hoped to get, but we did manage to snag some of these non-rare books from online stores using whatever money (usually mine) we got. Though buying these was fine and dandy, we missed another opportunity to buy the rare ones. Another event will be held on July 10, 2016 and I think this is the right time to request for support. This is where you come in.
We’re hoping to raise at least $150 to cover half of our proposed $300 budget through this donation drive.
COSTS & BREAKDOWN
$100 — Fee for the guy who will line up for the event.
$150 — Doujinshi and art books.
$50 — shipping fees.
Unfortunately, the guy who will go to the event won’t do it for free, and it’s completely understandable because going to these events isn’t as simple as it sounds. Yeah, it’s not as crowded as Comiket, but he will still end up standing in line for hours on end.
In the event we fail to raise $150 dollars, we will use whatever money we got to instead buy any doujinshi we can from stores like Tora and Melon. I’m very sure the first generation of Aikatsu Stars! doujinshi will show up and it’d be nice to buy them and eventually share them with you.
GIRLS LOVE FESTIVAL 17
The 17th Girls Love Festival will start on June 5, 2016, and while we’ve never been to this event, there are chances Aikatsu! yuri doujinshi will show up. This is not a very top priority thing, and the main reason we want to get something from the event is we want to start translating a new original yuri series. And actually, I already set my sights on NOTO-san’s upcoming original story.
COSTS & BREAKDOWN
$50 — Estimated amount to buy a couple of doujinshi and NOTO-san’s book
$50 — Shipping fees.
We will not enter this event, so we’ll just wait these artists will sell their books online.
We’ve been doing translations for almost 1.5 years, and we still want to continue sharing these cute and lewd stories to all Aikatsu! fans, and yuri fans in general. This is literally the main purpose why Lazy Lily Fansubs still exist.
Thank you for reading and please consider donating any amount to help us continue on with our love of yuri and translation. Yeah, it’s corny-sounding, but it’s very true.
