It’s another oneshot from Akiko Oshima who also did “Ai no Tane“. I have a lot of her oneshots, so expect to see more from this mangaka in the future. I’m getting mixed reactions from the group on this oneshot. … Continue reading Oneshot “Colors” by Akiko Oshima
Here’s the last chapter of “many” and it’s a beach chapter! Thanks again to Peonine for translating and Suzume for cleaning this project. This was a really cute short series. I will say more “below the fold”. On to the release!Links to “many” chapter 3: (PDF) (Zip) My thoughts on the series (Highlight to see) —I was heartened to find a series that seemed to tastefully tell the story of a lesbian character, Tayama, dealing the object of her affection falling in love with a boy. I also liked the love-train of the sister’s twin brother being in love with … Continue reading "many" Chapter 3 (End)
Here’s chapter 2 of “many”. Thanks again to Peonine for translating, Suzume for cleaning, and Holanio for cleaning. Hopefully we’ll be able to get the final chapter out sooner (depending on whether there’s an available typesetter.) Onto to the release!Links to “many” Chapter 2: (PDF) (ZIP) This is the beginning of another spurt of releases. Tomorrow we’ll release the first chapter of another new series, followed by “Magnolia” Chapter 34. Continue reading "many" Chapter 2
Tonight we are debuting a new short series “many”. It’s only three chapters long, and we anticipate releasing the next two chapters within this month (though I’m not promising that). Thanks to Peonine for a lovely translation, Suzume and Yoriko for cleaning and redrawing, and lastly to Holanio for typesetting. Retranslation Partners:La Noche de los Caidos — Spanish On to the release!Links to “many” Chapter 1: (Zip) (PDF) My thoughts on the first chapter:The lovely and delicate artwork attracted me to this mangaka. This series has a nice summer feel. Typically, I don’t like high school love trains, but the … Continue reading New Series: "many" Chapter 1 by Kakeru Tsutsumi
Since we’ve been burn before on Sakura Tsukuba one-shots, we decided to be quiet about this one and wait a little while to see if another group was going to do it first. After waiting a couple of weeks, we decided to go ahead and take the chance to translate it. I really don’t like keeping things a secret, but I think in this case it may have been worth it. Anyhow, this is a very easygoing and pleasant one-shot. It’s perfect for a mid-winter read. As expected, the artwork is also very nice.Without further ado, here are the links: … Continue reading Surprise One-Shot: "Wait until it’s Dark" by Sakura Tsukuba
This unexpectedly became the first one-shot we released from Shiro Lala. Please forgive us if you’ve already read this from Mousou Scans. We were well on our way to completing this one-shot when they released it, but I didn’t want to waste the cleaning and redrawing work that had already been done and we did announce our intention to do this one-shot weeks back, so I decided to just crank this out now since it’s short. Anyhow, this one-shot is very different than what we are used to from Matsuri Hino. It’s a very simple story and the character designs … Continue reading Shiro Lala One-Shot: "The Sullen Baker and Me"
Yay! We’ve finally come to the conclusion of the short series “Kaichou-san no Koneko!” I really enjoyed this series and I hope you did too. I’ve bundled the two extra stories in this series with this release. The first extra story is in a separate file and the second 3-page short story is tacked onto the end of chapter 3. Here are the links: Link to KNK Omake 1 — “Kotoko’s Kitten”Link to “Kaichou-san no Koneko” chapter 3 + “Ku-chan’s Day” If any of you want to know more about the Scottish Fold breed of cat, here are some links: … Continue reading Kaichou-san no Koneko Chp 3 + Omakes
Here is “Kaichou-san no Koneko” chapter 2. Link to “Kaichou-san no Koneko” chapter 2 There’s only one more chapter and very short omake left in this series! Next up is “Orange Chocolate” chapter 11. I’m narrowing down on some potential one shots. There are 3 recently released one-shots from from Kiyo Fujiwara that have caught my eye. They look like humorous boyhood slice-of-life stories. The two that just came out in in “The Hana to Yume” and the Baby extra comic book look extra-heartwarming. As for a new series, I’m looking for something with some action and romance. I’m currently … Continue reading Kaichou-san no Koneko Chp 2
