Update: One content farm uploaded the chapter ugly watermarks and all. Therefore, chapter 10 will be similarly watermarked. Go give thanks to them. I have sent this website an e-mail. Hopefully, they will take down our projects so we can end this stupidity before we get to chapter 10.——————-Here is “Junketsu + Kareshi” chapter 9 and as I warned, I’ve watermarked some of the pages in the zip file because some bad actors continued to upload this series to manga aggregation websites and content farms. I feel bad doing this because the artwork in the series is gorgeous. I beg … Continue reading Junketsu + Kareshi Chapter 9
The title page for “Junketsu + Kareshi” chapter 8 is very deceiving. Neither of these characters shows up in the chapter (except the Student Council President very briefly in a flashback). Anyhow…this chapter pretty much goes as predicted, though, there are a few funny Aki snide remark moments (thank goodness for those). Here are the links: Links to “Junketsu + Kareshi” chapter 8: (Zip) (PDF) — Retired Spoiler Alert!My thoughts on the Chapter– Kana continues to bumble happily and senselessly along. Personally, I would have taken the hinges off of Masayuki’s door. Beyond that, the whole Masayuki situation makes no … Continue reading Junketsu + Kareshi chp 8 — wow, I never would have guessed who "N" is…
Here is “Junketsu + Kareshi” chapter 7. This is basically a heavily comedic bridge chapter to the next story arc. Links to “Junketsu + Kareshi” Chatper 7: (Zip) (PDF) — Retired Spoilers Ahead: My thoughts on the chapter– Kana is weird! She seems to willfully avoid her own sadness and the sadness of others. It’s not that I believe in dwelling on sadness, but she’s way too Pollyanna-like to stay sane. I eagerly await the break-down and Aki’s reaction to her breakdown (that is if Shouoto-sensei is brave enough to have Kana breakdown). In this chapter we are sorta … Continue reading Junketsu + Kareshi Chp 7 — Dude looks like a Lady!

Finally, we see Kana begin to internalize her … Continue reading Junketsu + Kareshi Chp 6
Here is “Junketsu + Kareshi” Chapter 5! The cliffhanger from chapter 4 is resolved very unexpectedly, and now it makes me wonder what direction this story is taking. I like that I was surprised in this manner, though, because what happened took courage to do. It’s definitely not cliched :). Links to “Junketsu + Kareshi” Chapter 5: (Zip) (PDF) — Retired On the matter of Aki — I feel bad that no matter how hard he tries, hypnotism does not work on Kana. That said though, Aki really is quite possessive and generally sinister. But the end of the chapter … Continue reading Junketsu + Kareshi Chp 5
I can’t believe we finished this before the end of Halloween night! It was such a joy translating and editing the images in the chapter :). I love handling beautiful drawings! I couldn’t redraw the intro color 2-page spread, but I did redraw/extrapolate the gap between the pages of a very important scene. All hail the mighty PhotoShop Pen Tool! Anyhow Happy Halloween! Links to “Junketsu + Kareshi” chapter 4 (Zip) (PDF) — Retired I don’t know what to make of the ending, but I’m guessing this is the end of the “prologue” and now we get into the meat … Continue reading Happy Halloween: Junketsu + Kareshi Chapter 4
Wow! There are two beautiful introductory pages in this chapter and this series will appear on the cover of Aria 12! I can’t wait to see what Shouto-sensei comes up with! This is a fun series so far :). There is something I’d like to comment on about this chapter, but I’ll wait a couple of days for people to read it so I don’t spoil the chapter for everyone.

Finally, a real vampire! Hopefully, this series won’t go rambling off into the weeds and thicket like “Vampire Knight.” I like the two main characters in this series and the artwork is a real pleasure to edit. As I said in the teaser, I will continue translating this series.
