Oneshot: "Ongaku ga Mieru Otoko" ("The Man who Could See Music") by Tsukiji Nao

FINALLY!!! It’s done! Tsukiji Nao oneshots are a pain in the butt to letter. This oneshot in particular had A LOT of text and sound effects.  A big thanks goes out Kaito and Aricania for lettering this project. Also, a HUGE thanks to Jade for translating all that text!  The English adaptation is GORGEOUS!  Hooray for Jade!!! I think she really nailed this one! This comes from the “Haikyo Shoujo” collection too. As you’ll notice all the oneshots from that collection are connected by junk piles/ruins and hallucinations. This oneshot, in particular, has a nice life lesson — one I … Continue reading Oneshot: "Ongaku ga Mieru Otoko" ("The Man who Could See Music") by Tsukiji Nao

Happy 4th Anniversary!!! Oneshot: ‘Boushi no Ue no Oka" ("The Hill on Top of the Hat") by Tsukiji Nao

Hooray! We saved the best for last, or at the very least, my favorite of the oneshots we’ve done for this celebration. Not only is Tsukiji Nao a favorite of the group for her artwork, but her storytelling is  masterful … Continue reading Happy 4th Anniversary!!!

Oneshot: "Tansu Shoujo" ("Chest of Drawers Girl") by Tsukiji Nao

This is one of the oneshots from Tsukiji Nao’s “Haikyo Shoujo” oneshot compilation.  We were going to translate the actual “Haikyo Shoujo” oneshot, but two other groups have already done it.  If you would like to read the full compilation, then please read the “Haikyo Shoujo” oneshot here (LINK) and we will be releasing the other two oneshots this week. Thanks to Blotty Parchment for translating this oneshot. It’s a lovely read and probably more of what you all were expecting from Tsukiji Nao, though I would say Tsukiji Nao’s stories all have a twist rather call them “twisted”.  I … Continue reading Oneshot: "Tansu Shoujo" ("Chest of Drawers Girl") by Tsukiji Nao

Oneshot: "Zakka ni Umoreta Otome" ("The Maiden Buried Under Novelties") by Nao Tsukiji

First I would like to say Nao Tsukiji’s oneshots are amazing both in terms of artwork and storytelling. Second I would like to say that we are never doing a Nao Tsukiji marathon again! Each oneshot is A LOT of work to translate and letter. Haha, from now on we will translate her works one at a time with long breaks in between. We will resume work on the “Kiniro Kishi” compilation in August. It includes two more two-part oneshots. Let’s get started with a short oneshot from the oneshot compilation  “Kiniro Kishi” (“Golden Knight”). Basically, there’s pretty all over … Continue reading Oneshot: "Zakka ni Umoreta Otome" ("The Maiden Buried Under Novelties") by Nao Tsukiji

Omari’s Sister 4th Anniversary Kickoff! "Eikyuu Shoujo" ("Eternal Girl") by Akane Ogura

Our anniversary is actually on the June 26th, but I decided to expand the celebration throughout the whole month of June. Because we don’t like to blow our wad all at once, we’ll be releasing a new oneshot at least once every two days.  For this anniversary, I picked works that span the various magazines we pull content from.  When we started back in 2009, we were a Hakusensha focused group that mainly pulled from Hana to Yume and Lala DX.  Now we pull content from: Hana to Yume The Hana to Yume Lala Lala DX Lala Special Asuka Princess … Continue reading Omari’s Sister 4th Anniversary Kickoff!

Water-Themed One-Shot: "Seiten ni Tsurugi wo Kazase" ("Raise your Sword in Fair Weather") by Shizuru Onda

Wow! We got this one in with barely any time to spare, though it’s not like any of our deadlines are hard. But still, big thanks to Kiruku Naru for her lightening fingers.  I didn’t get all the pages to her until yesterday, so I was not expecting to be able to release this today.  Hee! Also, thanks to Jade for a wonderful translation and thanks to Maki from Chinmokurev for helping us clean this one-shot! We end our August water-themed one-shots with a bang!  This is a really nice one-shot from one of Bisco Hatori’s former assistants.  If this … Continue reading Water-Themed One-Shot: "Seiten ni Tsurugi wo Kazase" ("Raise your Sword in Fair Weather") by Shizuru Onda

Water-Themed One-Shot: "Over the Blue" by Yumi Kiiro

If you read and/or downloaded this earlier, please re-read or re-download the latest version.  We missed two pages the first time around.  The two pages are now included.  Sorry about that.  Thanks to Steaming Bao for the head up. Here’s a very cute one-shot from Yumi Kiiro (“Library Wars”). It was included in the “Nemurenu Kishi ni Hanataba wo” one-shot compilation. This is Kotomi’s debut as a translator.  In the past she has been one of the folks who QCs our translations. Let’s all welcome Kotomi to her expanded role at Omari’s Sister!  I like to thank Silver Lunar for … Continue reading Water-Themed One-Shot: "Over the Blue" by Yumi Kiiro

Water-Themed One-Shot: "Kaizokuhime" ("Pirate Princess") by Yuki Shiwasu

Before we get to the one-shot, I need to do some advertising.  We need an experienced advanced-level Japanese to English translator for “Akagami no Shirayukihime.”  We will be working from the tankoubon from now on, however, if the translator wishes, he or she may translate from the magazine so as not to be bombarded with multiple chapters at once.  Also, the translator can work on other OS projects at their own leisure. We are also recruiting Cleaners and Redraw Artists.  Please see our recruitment page for more details.——————————  Now onto the one-shot!  You may recognize the name of the mangaka, … Continue reading Water-Themed One-Shot: "Kaizokuhime" ("Pirate Princess") by Yuki Shiwasu
