(takes a deep breath)
For those of you who have been enduring the agonizingly long wait since the official sweet pool localization was announced earlier this year in February, THERE HAS FINALLY BEEN A DEVELOPMENT!!! \o/
Well, more accurately, we've been working hard to get to this stage for months now but none of it was public information so I wasn't able to talk about any of it and I was literally dying inside AAAAAAHHHH!!!!
sweet pool is finally up for preorder!!!!!!
Release date: December 19, 2018 - the 10 year anniversary of the original Japanese release!!!
If you're a BL fan, or a Saya no Uta fan, or an Urobuchi Gen fan, or a (body) horror fan, OH BOY, soon you too can experience the absolute what-the-fuckery that is sweet pool, AKA my debut translation in the Boys' Love genre, brought to you by JAST BLUE!
