New Series: "Kanojo ni Naru Hi" ("Becoming a Girl Day") by Akane Ogura

At last we are introducing a new series! It’s not the series I expected to debut first, though. Rather, this series came out of the blue, and I liked it so much that I jumped on it immediately. (Akane Ogura gender-bender — how could I resist?)

I don’t want to say much about the story, because I believe it’s best to go into this knowing nothing.  So instead I will talk about how Hakusensha is distributing the series. The first chapter ran in Lala DX and the rest of the series is being released as a tankoubon rather than continuing in Lala DX.  I don’t know why this was done, but considering this title page image and the cover image, I wonder if it’s a little racier than what appears in Lala DX. Personally I welcome that, but I’m not getting my hopes up. The tankoubon will be released on July 5th. I have it on pre-order, so when it arrives on the 8th we can just pound through and finish the series in the background.

A big thanks goes out to Peonine for helping me smooth out some of the finer points of the translation.  And also thanks to Ichi for speedy redraws.

Retranslation Notice: 

  • La Noche de Los Caidos — Spanish
  • Shiro to Kuro — French 
  • Dimichan — Portuguese
  • Sunshine Group — Vietnamese

And now onto the release!

Up next will be “Magnolia” Chapter 32.  After that, I don’t know what’s next. Lots of projects are being worked on, so I suppose we will all be surprised by what gets done first.

If you are interested in the June stats for Omari’s Sister and what’s happening in July, please see the previous blog post. There are some additional new series announcements.  Also, we are still recruiting for summer help.  Summer helpers will work on oneshots for our Halloween oneshot party.  Skilled translators, redraws artists, and typesetters are in need.
