Actions Speak Louder Than Words!

Now we come to the end of Nettaigyo wa Yuki ni Kogareru volume 1 with the release of chapter 4. However, volume 2 comes out in less than 10 days, so we'll be continuing with this in a couple of weeks once we get the next volume.

Also, there's a little thing in the afterword that should probably be explained. The official shorthand version of the title is given as Hanigare (はにがれ), taken from the bold portions of the series' title: 熱帯魚がれる. The reason why it's not Wanigare is the same reason for Haganai's shorthand title.

Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails!

Kami-sama no Ekohiiki volume 4 now concludes with chapters 22 and 23. As stated at the end of the volume, the fifth and final volume comes out in late June, and we will most likely be working on it shortly after its release.

That said, recent events in this series have taken a turn that I suppose could have been predicted as early as volume 2, but that which certainly couldn't have been foreseen when we started this series last year, i.e. that it is no longer a gender bender series as of volume 4. Personally, that was kind of a hard pill to swallow, and we have seen other people comment along that same line elsewhere, so I would just like to say to those people, I share your disappointment. When we decide to do a gender bender series, we obviously expect it to remain a gender bender series throughout the story, but if there's one thing that we've come to understand about Ayumi Komura over the years is that she is very unpredictable.

Even though we were already committed at the time to do Komura's next series after Mori no Takuma-san, it was still invigorating to see her tackling another gender bender series after Usolily, especially considering that both Full Dozer and Takuma-san weren't gender benders, either. Obviously, it comes as no surprise that there's an added emphasis and enjoyment we put on gender benders, and Kamieko was no different, at least until volume 4. However, we are still committed to finishing the series, and we'll see what happens with Komura after that.

In other news, we'll be starting on Mizutama Honey Boy v08 later this week, but first comes finishing up Nettaigyo v01.

Be Careful What You Wish For!

Happy Friday the 13th! And now here's Nettaigyo chapter 2, halfway through volume 1. Although the ensuing chapters are shorter than chapter 1, it's still super cute.
