Choir! 26, 27, and 28

Happy early Valentine's Day, and as always, sorry for the long wait.

Well, it's a bittersweet moment. These three chapters are the whole reason I wanted to work on Choir! in the first place, and although it took way too long to get here (mainly my fault), here they are at last. It's sad, but fitting, that they be our final Choir! release.

Although it may not be the greatest manga in the world, I've grown quite fond of it over these three years, and its many crazy references taught me a lot of obscure stuff about Japan. I hope you've enjoyed it too. It should be unnecessary to say, but we encourage anyone who wants to continue work on Choir! to please feel free to do so.

As for translation notes, in Chapter 27 Shousei and Mayuko have a go at yobisute, which is the custom of dropping honorifics entirely and referring to someone only by their given name. This is the most intimate form of address in Japanese, and is a very romantic, coupley thing to do. Often though, as in this case, it's tough to make bold changes like that...

Anyway, after this we're hoping to put out some more Kimi no Tame before long. Please look forward to it.
