Arakure Chp 56 (The Final Chapter) Translation

At last!  Here’s the final chapter of Arakure! Link to Arakure Chp 56 I enjoyed this series a lot and I’m sad to see it end.  I will definitely miss these characters. I hope you all enjoyed it too :).  Fujiwara has a new series out running in Betsuhana (it may be more “adult” than Arakure) and there’s also a one-shot.  I’ll look into to both of these. Next up is Yoroshiku Master! Continue reading Arakure Chp 56 (The Final Chapter) Translation

Arakure Chp 55 Translation

It’s the second to last chapter of Arakure.  At last it’s revealed that Sachie is a Yakuza princess, and her best friend’s mother can’t handle it.  What’s poor Sachie going to do?  This part of the story is pretty standard, dare I even say perfunctory — well, let’s just get it over with.  There’s also some nice moments with Rakuto 🙂 Link to Arakure Chp 55 I probably won’t be able to get to the last chapter of Arakure until after the long Thanksgiving holiday.  Sorry!  I promise, though, it will be worth the wait :). For those of you … Continue reading Arakure Chp 55 Translation

Arakure Chp 54 Translation

Here’s Arakure Chp 54.  This marks the beginning of the end of the series and contains the moment we’ve all been waiting for.  In the next chapter, Sachie is forced to come clean about her “family” which causes some difficulties with her best friend’s mother.  The last chapter, nicely wraps things up with Sachie’s graduation.  I’m very pleased with the thoughtful way this manga series ends. Link to Arakure Chp 54 I should get chapter 55 done before Ouran 76 is released.  I doubt, though, that I will be able to squeeze out the last chapter before Ouran.  I have … Continue reading Arakure Chp 54 Translation

Arakure Chp 53 Translation

Here’s Arakure Chp 53.  And with this chapter we come to the end of the very short Kyoto arc.  In this chapter Sachie shows her resolve.  I like this chapter a lot because it shows when two people are in love, they will do whatever it takes to be together.  Love doesn’t always have to be a sacrifice or painful. Link to Chp 53 (11/13/2009 version 2) I’m going to take a little break to take a look at some of the options for my next project.  I figured the best thing to do is to translate and post the … Continue reading Arakure Chp 53 Translation

Arakure Volume 6 (Chp 30 – 33) Summaries

Chapter 30  The chapter begins with Azuma complaining to himself about what Sachie told Rakuto (“I guess it’s not so bad if it means you’ll always be around”) and thinks Sachie, in so many words, has confessed to Rakuto.  Meanwhile a pudgy guy name Tataki Yoichi and his son show up and ask the gang for money to help save their restaurant.  Apparently, in his younger years, the pudgy guy used to be a skinny and very skilled burglar.  He left the gang to buy a house and open a restaurant with his wife.  Anyhow, Tataki’s wife died a few … Continue reading Arakure Volume 6 (Chp 30 – 33) Summaries

Arakure Chp 51 Translation

Here’s Arakure Chapter 51.  This is a bittersweet chapter and Azuma fans should get out a couple of hankies.  I like manga like this in which the main character has two excellent choices for a mate.  It’s always sad when the choice is finally made, but at the same time it’s satisfying because we the reader know it’s destiny.  I think this is the way life as humans.  Love is a train.  Whether the person knows or not, there are always more than one person in love with them and when that person settles on someone, the train of other … Continue reading Arakure Chp 51 Translation

Arakure Chp 50 Translation

It’s the chapter we’ve all been waiting for.  Oh, why can’t Tamaki be this brave and honest?  Anyhow, this is simply a lovely chapter, so I hope you all enjoy it. Link to Arakure Chp 50 The next chapter will cover the sad aftermath for Azuma.  I really do feel sorry for him because he’s a good guy, and he did what was best for Sachie’s happiness instead of his own. Anyhow, I’m gonna take a couple days off from translating to catch up on some housework and work on my other projects.  There are 6 chapters left in Arakure, … Continue reading Arakure Chp 50 Translation
