It's Cherry Picking Season!

Well, we said we probably wouldn't be releasing anything else this month, but I guess we were wrong, though our next release still won't be coming until July. Here's chapter 5 of one of our joint releases with WOW!scans, Sazanami Cherry. The next chapter won't be released until October when the next issue of Waai is published in late September.

Umbrellas, Parks and Ramune!

Speeding along to the end of the first volume, here's chapters 6 and 7 of Love Allergen! They were only finished one day apart, so we thought it'd be okay to just release them at the same time. We do have volume 2 already, so there's no wait for it to come, however, this will probably be our last release until July for various reasons, so we're glad we were able to get done with the first volume now. If we don't release anything else in June, our next release will be sometime in early July, so see you then!

A Diary is a Dangerous Thing!

Now for the moment all the Love Allergen fans have been waiting for, the first new translated material in over a year, Love Allergen chapter 4! It's a great chapter, and the manga continues to be a lot of fun, so readers won't be disappointed. With this, we're more than halfway through volume 1. As always, thanks to our readers and those who comment.

And now for something else that has been greatly anticipated: Past Future chapter 4, and this time with a couple color pages to boot. Sazanami Cherry chapter 5 will follow soon. As usual, these chapters are serialized in a quarterly magazine, so another chapter won't be released until October.

Enter the Dragon: And Her Name is Normal!

Chapter 3 of Love Allergen is done, so now we can get started on the first new material in over a year. We're surprised that such a nice manga wasn't picked up by another group between the time when it was stalled last year and when we decided to scanlate it, but we're enjoying it, and we hope you are too, because there's more still to come.

Paradise! In the Heaven!

And now here's chapter 2 of Love Allergen, and we're almost caught up with the already scanlated chapters. Again, we recommend you read our release even if you've read the previous version done by Endaene Scanlaene, as we feel it'll be a better reading experience. Regarding the translation, last time we mentioned that Honomi refers to herself in the third person, so we tried to avoid her using "I" to be consistent. However, she uses 'me' and 'my' at various points where in the original text she did not say her name. Wherever she says her name, though, it's kept. In any case, we wanted to keep the nuance that she speaks in an awkward, and somewhat childish way.

As mentioned last time, this is the second (and as of yet, last) installment of Hybrid Boy from the fifth Josou Shounen anthology volume. It's shorter than the first one-shot, but is perhaps even cuter. We hope you enjoy it!

Love Allergen and a Surprise!

Moving right along to our next project while we wait for more Kuragehime and Usotsuki Lily, here's the first chapter of the manga Love Allergen. Even if you have already read the version put out by Endaene Scanlaene, we recommend you read our version, based on various differences and improvements. Now, while this may be our only non-gender bender project, the main character Tasuku Yamano is cute enough to be a trap, so that's a plus. Something to note is that Honomi Morioka refers to herself in the third person, and this is kept for authenticity. So, enjoy!

We've also slightly reorganized our projects, splitting up the series into separate pages and placing the navigation to the right.

And now, for our surprise:

Ichijinsha has been releasing trap anthologies since last year and six volumes have been released to date, with another two coming out soon. As an added side project alongside our Love Allergen releases, we want to provide some of the better one-shots from these anthologies, starting with the one-shots that have continuations; some of the stories have second and even third installments. Our first release from these anthologies is Hybrid Boy by Mizunomoto, which first appeared in the third volume. A second installment appeared in volume 5, which will be released soon. The story has BL themes, it's very cute and highly recommended.

Also, Sazanami Cherry and Past Future are also going to be coming soon, so look forward to those two. Otomegokoro no Jiyuugata won't be released until July.

A Cross-dressing Christmas! Part Deux

Finally, after a lot of work, we got the last release from Usotsuki Lily volume 4 out a little early: chapter 27! Thus completes our 12th volume. The next volume will be released in the summer, so until then there will be no more releases of Usotsuki Lily.

As mentioned in the afterword at the end of the chapter, Shueisha produced a short audio drama of the first two chapters with voice actors reading off the manga pages. They call it a Vomic (a portmanteau of voice and comic) and it's available for free on Shueisha's website. Just click on the large play button, and wait for it to load automatically. You can click on the other files on the right when it's over (or when the voice actors start talking about it at the end). The two chapters are split into 2 parts, so parts 1 and 2 are for chapter 1, and 3 and 4 are for chapter 2. So as long as you've read the first two chapters, you should know what's going on, even if you don't understand Japanese. Here's to hoping an anime gets made soon.

The voice actors for the characters include:

And now for the moment when we finally reveal out next work. It may come as some surprise since it'll be our first series that's not a gender bender (as mentioned before), but we want more people to be able to read it, the same reason we do all our projects. So, without further ado, our next project comes from the team of Satoru Akahori and Yukimaru Katsura, who you may remember are the creators of Kashimashi: Girl Meets Girl.

They started a new manga called Love Allergen in late 2009, and since then two volumes have been released. Another scanlator, Endaene Scanlaene, did the first three chapters from magazine scans, but stopped without a word and hasn't been heard from since because of a lack of available raws. Seeing as the scanlation has been stalled for over a year, we do not believe there will be any problems with us taking it over. We're going to be using the raws from the volumes, and are starting from chapter 1, which we hope to release soon.
