We bring you a much awaited project. Est Em’s IPPO. I’m a big fan of Est Em’s, together with Kokiden, we’ve worked many of her things, so imagine our joy when we realized we could bring this title to life. Several people are involved and it wouldn’t have been possible with the help of many friends: Lapin Peluche team, Kokiden (ofc), IA (one of our new cleaners) and Grumpykit (our new proofer). I helped with QC but the merit is all the girls’~
I hope you enjoy this new title because it’s been done with so much love and care. Enjoy! And don’t forget we’re recruiting, all positions open.
👞IPPO – Volume 01 Chapters 0, 1 & 2
Happy Holidays everyone! January is near the end, wow time sure flies. We hope you’re having a nice beginning of the year though.
I thought it’d be nice to open this year’s first release with something cheerful and sweet, so Onee na Kareshi is here for you enjoy~ Thanks to everyone involved: Kokiden and Halalima.
Don’t forget we’re still recruiting guys! Cleaners, Typesetters and a Graphic Designer would be very nice to speed things up here. You know that our releases are quite infrequent, that could be easily remedied if we have at least two more people working steadily on cleaning and typesetting departments. Spread the word!~ Thanks!
Onee na Kareshi to Boyish Kanojo – Volume 01 Chapter 04
Apologies for the lack of updates! So here’s a small treat for those who are following this couple. Thanks a bunch to Kokiden and Halalima (I helped with cleaning and typesetting), and please welcome our new proofreader: Grumpykit!
We’re recruiting guys, anyone interested in filling the position of cleaner/typesetter/translator is welcome to join us~
Enjoy the reading!
Onee na Kareshi to Boyish Kanojo – v01 ch03
We’re getting closer to the end of volume 01, it’s been a long ride up here. Akio’s going out of town and meeting new and interesting people, plus his first encounter with a…bowl *lol*
Please, show your gratitude to the people who made possible this release: Dandy, for his cleaning, Kokiden for her translation plus qc’ing and me, your loyal servant filling all the gaps to get the job done :’)
Remember that we’re recruiting guys. We need serious help with CLEANING, TYPESETTING AND TRANSLATION. We’ve bought a bunch of things, we’ve started a few other and we also need to finish what we already got. Limerent wants to grow but with so little help that’s virtually impossible to achieve. So join us and let LVS become a lil’ bit bigger than it was yesterday~
Some of the titles we need help with are Kamijo Atsushi’s Aka x Kuro and Sex; Ippo by Est Em; Chrono Crowd by Yuki Izumi; Onee na Kareshi to Boyish Kanojo and True Blue (these ones needs help with both cleaning and typesetting to continue with next chapters).
Enjoy the read~
👾Sk8r’s – Section 04
Another chapter of this dorky and insanely cute couple! Big thank you to Kokiden for the translation. I helped with edition, cleaning and typesetting.
Enjoy the reading~
Onee na Kareshi to Boyish Kanojo – Volume 1 Chapter 02
Greetings, dear readers. I hope life finds you well, or death… that’s at least for our characters in Thanatos no Shisha.
We’ve been through some changes regarding this project, being on halt for such a long time, people coming and going, change of joints, Thanatos is finally able to go through the gates of updates and releases. Both groups involved worked pretty hard to bring you a revised version of the first part and the second one, so please leave a nice message on the box comment for the ones involved: Ananda, Kokiden and Jammin’ Scans.
We hope you enjoy this release and see you next time!
🌹Thanatos no Shisha – [Volume 1] Part 1&2
Here you can feel free to recommend us any title that piqued your interest and you’d like to see scanlated by us.
Please note that we won’t take titles that are already being worked by other teams, unless it’s been specifically stated why we would do such a thing. If a title seems dropped by a team, contact that team first and verify yourself it’s been rightfully abandoned in order for us to resume where it’s been left. We also want to mention that LVS is a very small group, so if you want a title to be done, we would consider it a common courtesy for the person who made the recommendation to lend a hand on the release of the aforementioned project, whether is typesetting, providing raws, editing or translating, this in case the title has been approved by the majority of LVS core team of course. If, unfortunately, you cannot provide any help, then the project most probably won’t get picked up, it will be placed at the bottom of the pending list or just plainly rejected due to lack of staff.
If you own a book or a certain series and you’d love to see it worked by us, then do not hesitate to contact us in order to provide the material and make the necessary arrangements for LVS to release that special title.
LVS focuses mainly on Josei and Seinen, but we’re open to any suggestion, we like to venture ourselves in the unknown and to experiment and meet new artists or old artists who never had the chance to make it big, we like underground series and avant-garde stories, anything that can provide an interesting perspective to what manga is~

Today I come with one of the most expected projects from LVS staff, Genji-kun’s contemporary crusade brang to you by one of our most beloved mangaka, Est Em sensei. We’re extremely happy to see this happen, because we’ve been literary working on this for more than a year. It’s been so damn long that it feels like a daydream coming true, not exaggerating at all. We got the book back in 2016, thanks to a dear friend Johanna, who bought it for us and during 2017 we dedicated to translate the whole book and Genji’s haikus were one hell of a topic of discussion in our fb chats *laughs*
I want to thank a thousand times to two of the people who worked their as*es off to bring you these chapters today, Aya, Halalima and Kokiden. Aya with her super fast hands for typesetting and edition, Halalima with her great help in proofing and Kokiden with her usual neat translations. Working with you it’s always a pleasure. Also, a big thanks to Eme for helping with some sfx and complex pattern reconstructions and Unagi-san for providing a nice credits page.
We hope to release the rest of chapters in less than what? A year and a half? *sighs* So in order for that not to happen, I humbly ask you people to join us so we can release chapters and projects faster and more steadily. Cleaners, Typesetters and Editors are very much appreciated. We are kinda covered with translations, but if anyone is interested in that field, we have a bunch of titles awaiting for English scripts. So please, readers spread the word.
Now, enjoy your reading~
🌸 Ii ne! Hikari Genji-kun – Chapters 01-06
June is going away and we wanted to make a release before the month finishes. This particular update makes me feel quite joyful, it’s some sort of an achievement to be able to bring you Onee na Kareshi to Boyish Kanojo. It’s been a year, since I discovered this beautiful story, and it almost makes my heart ache a bit due to the happiness of seeing it released, if not ask Kokiden.
Onee na Kareshi hits close home in several aspects, so at moments it felt so personal that I had to take some distance in order to appreciate it in other different ways. I have to say, that there’s some new wave type of shoujo/josei in Japan that I’m diggin’ so friggin’ much right now, new artists that aren’t that well known but are doing an incredible job on depicting diferent, at some point “marginal” stories that leaves me with a sweet after taste, without mentioning this fresh and naive-like art style that I’ve always enjoyed and fits so well in comedic retellings… I just hope you can enjoy this new project as much as we do~
A bunch of thanks to Kat-Tea, Halalima, Kokiden and Unagi-san for being so great and supportive, without them this wouldn’t have seen the light of day
