New Josei Series: "Bread & Butter" Chapter 1

Under normal circumstances, we would not touch any series from Shueisha because of over-representation in scanlation and licensed content.  I’m taking a gamble that this series will not be licensed because the main characters are in their mid and late 30s. This is from the same mangaka who brought us “Sunadokei” (“The Hour Glass” or “Sand Chronicle”) and “Piece”. Haha! Hopefully this won’t go off the rails like “Sunadokei” did. I picked this series because I like Hara,  the main male character, and because bread. Do I really need any other justification beyond “bread-baking megane”? Anyhow, I hope you all … Continue reading New Josei Series: "Bread & Butter" Chapter 1

"Kerberos in the Silver Rain" Chapter 2

And now, for a change of pace, we have the next chapter “Kerberos in the Silver Rain”. This chapter has a brief adult moment, but I don’t think it’ll do any permanent damage given what’s shown on US television these days. In this chapter our highly skill commandos head into Forbidden Zone 03 to take on the infiltrators! This is one of the few action mangas that I can follow the action in the drawings. I love the drawing and sound effect style. Page 27 is especially nice :3. A big thanks goes out to Ichigo Stars for beautifully completing … Continue reading "Kerberos in the Silver Rain" Chapter 2

"Nanatsu no Kururi" Chapter 2

Updated 10/3/2013:  Page 10 stitch completed. For those archiving the series, you should re-download. Here is the second chapter of “Nanatsu no Kururi”.  It’s a short, but sweet chapter showcasing more of Sumire’s incredible kindness. I love how he doesn’t judge the subject of this story.  In a way it seems almost like a Biblical New Testament parable. If only people in real life were this lovely. And now onto the release!Links to “Nanatsu no Kururi”: (PDF) (Zip) Next up! I don’t know!  Hee!  Regardless we’re at least 3 days away from being able to release something. Continue reading "Nanatsu no Kururi" Chapter 2

New Seinen Series: "Kerberos in the Silver Rain" Chapter 1 by Rira Aikawa (Story) and Berry Star (Illustration)

  First of all, I need to take care of a bit of business.  We are in need of proofreaders/QCer’s. If you are interested, go here for more details (LINK) We also need experienced typesetters (LINK). ————————— This is our first seinen project.  I don’t get Heros magazine, so I found out about this series from Naked Ape’s Twitter feed.  Yes, Rira Aikawa from Naked Ape wrote the story.  Base on this, I bought the first volume and ended up reading that first volume late into the night.  This is a really fun series and I love the two male … Continue reading New Seinen Series: "Kerberos in the Silver Rain" Chapter 1 by Rira Aikawa (Story) and Berry Star (Illustration)

New Josei Series: "A Pair of Wing of Blue" ("Ao no Souyoku") by Fusanosuke Inariya

This is the last of the josei series we are debuting at this time. This one came out of nowhere in Haruca magazine.  I started reading the first chapter and I couldn’t stop.  I strongly felt that this could be a special series, so I jumped on it without hesitation. I hope the rest of the series lives up to the promise of the first chapter. Haruca comes out quarterly, so expect chapters once every three months.  The next chapter will release in Japan in early September. And now on to the release!Links to “A Pair of Wing of Blue” … Continue reading New Josei Series: "A Pair of Wing of Blue" ("Ao no Souyoku") by Fusanosuke Inariya

New Josei Series: "Nanatsu no Kururi" by Chika Shiomi

Here’s the long awaited series from Chika Shiomi. We were originally going to release this series on Bakeneko’s Lair, but the violence and sexual content is on par with “Yukarism”, which I think is fine for teenagers. This is an introductory chapter. The story starts in chapter 2. This first story made me cry, so you may want to get a couple of tissues ready. Retranslation Partners:La Noche de Los Caidos — Spanish I hope you enjoy this series.  Please give us some feedback.  We are dipping our toe into josei, but per our style, we will not be doing … Continue reading New Josei Series: "Nanatsu no Kururi" by Chika Shiomi

Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama Chapter 5

This has nothing to do with this manga or Omari’s Sister, but go see “Pacific Rim”. It’s the funnest movie of the summer season IMHO. I’ve been spamming the heck out of everyone on Tumblr with it. Anyhow, go give it some money, because we need more movies like this and less “Transformers” and “Battleship” crap. Okay, back to the manga at hand. I think the release pace of “Ore to Atashi” is going to continue on like this. We’re working on chapter 6 now, but I can’t say with confidence that we’ll release it in August. There are simply … Continue reading Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama Chapter 5
