4 December 2010 Chapter 31 of Blossoms and Blood, a long Muraki/Tsuzuki WIP is out: Hunting the Jade Rabbit. The other shikigami set off in search of Tsuzuki. Muraki's feline familiar finally reveals itself. Half-Baked has had to remove manga scanlations because of the publisher-led anti-scanlation coalition. If you are after a particular scanlation, just send me an email.
17th April 2010 Chapter 30 of Blossoms and Blood, a long Muraki/Tsuzuki WIP is out: Exodus. Muraki offers Hisoka a deal: his body in exchange for Tsuzuki. Can Tsuzuki find them in time without revealing his incriminating black wings?

9th October 2009 Chapter 29 of Blossoms and Blood, a long Muraki/Tsuzuki WIP is out: Dance with the devil. Muraki offers Tsuzuki the chance to be the hero he has always longed to be...but is it a trap? Added some stunning giftart by Daaku Kurou, Karadin and Peppermint T, plus updated links so that all giftart except one can be accessed on this site instead of a link elsewhere. Half-Baked has finished scanlating Miracle Dieter Miyuki by Takaguchi Satosumi and The Sickness in Youth by Nishida Higashi, which is a big relief.
30th April 2009 Chapter 28 of Blossoms and Blood, a long Muraki/Tsuzuki WIP is out: Tsuzuki and Hisoka are sent on assignment - one that places them in direct conflict with Muraki.
27th March 2009 Added new content to Oriya/Ukyou Scanlations, including links to the two YnM drama CDs and translations posted at Tsuzuki Love (now 404), zips of the Tatsumi sidestory previously hosted at KatCom, and a download of an interview with the voice actors Hayami Sho and Miki Shinichiro, who voiced Muraki and Tsuzuki in the anime.

The database for the Tatsoka fanlist has been deleted twice over the past two months (damn hackers!) so I've been forced to start anew. If you were previously a member, please sign up again!

22nd October 2007 Miss Kittin has done a scary artwork of a scene from Blossoms and Blood ch 23: Tsuzuki undergoing his winged transformation. He may be a shinigami, but here he's as weak as any frail human. I've also updated the Japanese YnM fanart links section. Some great sites are 404, but I've done my best to link to their remaining online works. Also added some brand new sites too.
15th September 2007 Chazmy has kindly given permission for me to host one of her lovely YnM fanarts featuring Muraki and Tsuzuki. It's a very sexy piece of them after the poker game aboard the Queen Camellia, and is based on her own story. Be sure to visit her dA account for more YnM artworks!

18th May 2007 Karadin has done a beautiful Mu/Tsu fanart based on a scene in chapter 22 of Blossoms and Blood: Tsuzuki on top, but Muraki's still in control. I've fixed some of the YnM links - I didn't realise I'd incorrectly linked to Karadin's site for so long ;__; Also put the Musings section to bed - too hard to fix broken links, and I've lost the ranting urge for a while. Half-Baked has a new and improved look thanks to DIV STYLE - if I ever have the motivation, I'll have to try it on the main site as well.
20th April 2007 A new chapter of Blossoms and Blood, Mu/Tsu WIP fanfic, is available. New Mu/Tsu fanart posted - thanks to Miss Kittin for the sexy drawing! Plus I removed dead Hotmail addy from every damn story of mine on this site...I think. At least, I hope so. Only took three months, huh? Managed to free several Mb by deleting ALL guestbooks and txt files. To those automated servers that insist on checking those dead pages (188.8.131.52 in particular), go peddle your phentermine and cialis and viagra somewhere else!
5th February 2007 I'm running out of webspace - a sign that my site has been around way too long. So...with much reluctance, I've removed Ronda's MfU Gallery. (She and I came to agreement about this possibility *ages* ago, but I never thought I'd end up calling her up on it ;__;). But don't worry too much! You can still see her lovely art at her own site, Ronda's Rudimentary Preganglionic Homepage.
23rd January 2007 I've had to close all site-based guestbooks because of a terrible influx of spam. I tried multiple ways to stop it, all without success. Apologies to the contributors of Incognito, and the artists of OnePunchArt and StickFigs >__< If you wish to leave them comments, please use email. A new chapter of Blossoms and Blood, a loooong Mu/Tsu WIP fanfic, is available. Half-Baked Scanlations has a complete English scanlation of KREUZ by Takaguchi Satosumi, and a couple of projects in the works. If you wish to contact me, the best email to use is clare.chewATgmail.com, for my Hotmail account is now inactive. The lyrebirdATaithine.org email now redirects to gmail. In the next few days, I'll try to remove all mention of the Hotmail addy.
4th January 2007 Even more update catch-up. Karadin has drawn a beautiful sketch of Muraki and Tsuzuki admiring snowflakes. Annachuu has done a sexy colour YnM scanlation giftart of Muraki and Tsuzuki in a passionate embrace - also note the 2006 YnM Oriya/Ukyou liftout scanlation is ready for download.
