As you may have guessed, most of the group was occupied with Thanksgiving last week. I started cooking on Tuesday and finally got free of Thanksgiving last night. Ugh!!! Cleaning up Thanksgiving is the worst next to Christmas clean up, of course. Anyhow, now that that’s out of the way, we should get back to a more normal pace. Lots of releases are actually well begun. We also have some of new series we hope to debut in December. Please look forward to them. I’ll write about 2016 plans later, but I will say, we will be going back to finish some neglected series. We do still need some redrawing help, so if you are a skilled redraw artist and have a couple of hours or more a week to volunteer, we’d appreciate it. Even just a handful of pages a month would help tremendously.
And now onto “Kanojo ni Naru Hi — Another”. This chapter made me so sad for many reason. I really shouldn’t say much because I don’t want to spoil it, but there were some spots while I was translating where I had to stop and let events sink in. At some point, I’ll get around to doing opinion write ups on Lovely Manga, but for now, feel free to comment here and tag if you’re going to spoil.
And now onto the release!

That was interesting. Not much we didn’t already know or guess though (see chapter 7.)
On a personal side note, I can’t help but be a little disappointed in this series as a whole. With every new chapter I keep hoping it’s finally going to click with me but it never really does. I love the original series (original? there must be a better word here) but Another has always felt sort of off somehow. Like I could never really completely buy into the whole premise. Not the TG aspect, but things like the cliche “will she choose the girl or the guy” love triangle, or the fact that the school is letting Sagara keep the whole thing a secret at all. In a world where emergence is a known quantity I could see the school letting someone keep wearing a boys uniform, but not keeping it a secret altogether. Schools must have systems in place to handle that sort of thing.
It sounds nitpicky I suppose but there are enough little things bothering me that they add up and the series disappoints me a bit (though not so much that I’m going to stop reading.)
I understand your frustration. For me, the central story is not about the love triangle. It’s more about Sagara coming to terms with becoming a girl and dealing with her attraction to Narumi as a girl, which is a part of the acceptance process. The choice in the love triangle is not the goal for me. I think the end for me is Sagara fully accepting her physical transition. As for the school’s lax attitude, I imagine they had some experience with emergence and they don’t want to push kids into acceptance before they are ready. I think it’s right for the teachers to give Sagara space to come to terms.
Thank you very much! ❤
