Valentine’s Day Oneshot #1: "Ringo no Asobikata" ("Playing with Apples") by Kumiko Kandachi

Thank you all for your patience.  We will now get our Valentine’s long-weekend one-shot party under way! We have four one-shots for this party ranging from a sweet fairytale to a dark cautionary tale. We’ll start the festivities with a slightly psychological story. This one was a lot of fun to translate.Links to “Ringo no Asobikata”: (PDF) (Zip) Tomorrow we will have a oneshot featuring my favorite shoujo trope!

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

"Ore to Atashi no Kareshisama" Chapter 4

We are slowly working our way through this series. It’s going slow because the redraws are insane. Hopefully we’ll be able to finish this series over the summer when the redraw artists are on summer vacation.  Let’s give a big thanks to Aoi Kuma for doing some of the tough redraws in this chapter. This is also her debut as a member of Omari’s Sister. In this chapter we begin to dive into Hayate’s sister complex.  Actually, I think Hayate’s feelings for Chouko are cute and completely normal and innocent for close twins. I wouldn’t call it a sister complex … Continue reading "Ore to Atashi no Kareshisama" Chapter 4

"Ore to Atashi no Kareshisama" Chapter 3

We are trying to get this series on a monthly schedule, but the redraws are crazy hard, so each chapter is taking a while to complete. Hopefully we’ll get some help soon so we can do multi-chapter releases after we finish “Fushigi no Maria-kun” and “Furou Kyoudai.” Anyhow, we’re doing our best with this series. If you have some Photoshop redrawing skills and a little bit of free time, please lend us a hand so we can stay on schedule (even one or two pages of help per chapter will make a difference). This chapter has all of the typical … Continue reading "Ore to Atashi no Kareshisama" Chapter 3

"Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama" Chapter 2

It’s been a while. This is one of the series we’ve had on hold because I made the group bite off more than it could swallow. This wasn’t fair to my group and this wasn’t fair to the readers for this blog. I’m sorry about that. I still can’t promise regular releases of this series because we don’t have enough redraw support at the moment :(. If you can do complicated redraws and want to see this series on a more regular schedule, please contact me at omarissister@gmail.com to volunteer. Moving on, this series is coming to an end at … Continue reading "Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama" Chapter 2

"Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama" Chapter 1

We finally get this series started.  Phew! There were a lot of complicated redraws.  Thanks to Ichi and Kumiko for the great redraw work and thanks to Suzume for cleaning. This series turns out to be a lot sweeter than I anticipated.  I’m happy about that because I always like stories with some underlying heart.  In this chapter we get some good incite into the twins’ mind.  Chouko is a typical shallow female high school student and Hayate is her wiser over-protective brother. Peeking at the two chapters that are currently out, this is really a story about friendship, perhaps … Continue reading "Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama" Chapter 1

Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama Chp 0

This is surprise confection that showed up in Asuka magazine.  I waited until the first chapter actually came out before committing to give this series and try.  The first chapter is pretty hilarious, so I’m looking forward to starting this series.  This will probably be a series that we will release every other month because it’s got crazy redraws that rival “Fushigi no Maria-kun”.  We will release the first chapter in December. About the title —I’m still working of a proper translation.  Since there are no female/male distinctions in English for the words “I” and “me” there is no direct … Continue reading Ore to Atashi no Kareshi-sama Chp 0
