Occult Trap Mixers!

Rounding up our September releases, these are three more one shots from volume 8, Melon Group, introduced in order of decreasing page count, from 16, to 8, to merely 4 (not counting the author pages). Funnily enough, the shorter the title, the longer the work, and vice versa. The first is Okaken!! by Nariyuki Hazumi, the same author as Doppel! we released. Kurono joins a club called Okaken, thinking it's a club for people who like the occult. However, he soon finds this is not the case. If you've read Doppel!, you'll probably like Okaken!! more (I did).

The second is Doushite Kou Natta by Hiro Haraya. A boy is asked by his sister to cross-dress and come to a mixer she planned.

The third is Hajimari wa Itsumo Totsuzen..., and for such a long title you'd think it'd deserve more than 4 pages, but oh well. It's by Madoka Hoshino, and has a similar plot to Doushite Kou Natta. In this one, a boy is asked by his sister to take her place at a mixer.

To answer the anon's question about the file formatting, there is a method to our madness, even if it seems arbitrary. Saving to PNG is better for normal black and white manga pages, while JPG is better for color. That's just how it is, so we're not gonna change the formatting.

And now for a final note. Our next release probably won't come for another week, which, if all goes well, will coincide with the arrival of Kuragehime volume 8 and our other stuff. So enjoy these one-shots, and we'll see you in October!

Maids, Underwear, and Ghosts!

Here's three more one-shots from the eighth Josou Shounen volume. The first is Mezame no Ippo? by Miyuki Nakayama. When Yuki is asked by his girlfriend Chiaki to work at her maid cafe, he can't refuse.

The second is Made in Otome by Kinu Arikawa. Kazuya Otomein's mother has decided that he'll be the next president of her lingerie company Made in Otome, so he transfers into a girl's school to better understand girls and lingerie. This one's told in 4-koma format.

The third is Ore to Josou to Yuurei to!? by Shimesaba. Tooru talks to a ghost of a boy and finds out he wanted to cross-dress before he died. So, Tooru goes to his trap friend to figure out a way to let the ghost pass on.

And now for an update on the ninth Josou Shounen volume, Apple Group. There are four series that got more chapters: Zenryoku "Otome", Kasukabe Koukou Josou-bu, Kokuhaku, and Josou Debut. I am very surprised to see the latter three got more chapters, but am happy nonetheless. So look forward to more from those!

To answer the anon's question, we do not have any intention of translating H doujins.

Ducks and Marmalade

Continuing where we left off, here's two more one-shots from volume 8, Melon Group. The first is Ichinichi dake no Kanojo (Girlfriend for Just One Day) by Yuzuhi. Kaoru Asano wants to give his childhood friend Daisuke Segawa what he wants for his birthday. The thing is, Daisuke wants to go on a date with a girl.

The second one is called Marmalade Boy by Bau. An older brother is concerned about his odd behavior when around his younger trap brother. This one's very short at 8 pages.

Just as Planned: More Traps!

Today we have the second and third installments of our previously released Josou Debut one-shot by Emiri. Since it's been a little while from that release, you may want to go back and re-read the first one-shot, though it's not entirely necessary. The second one-shot, Zoku Josou Debut, was in volume 7, Plum Group. The third one-shot, Josou Debut Shita Ato, was in volume 8, Melon Group, our first release from that volume. As mentioned before, the ninth volume, Apple Group, will be out in a few days, and we're eager to see what'll be in it.

Also, as Kuragehime volume 8 is now out, we'll start on that as soon as we get the volume, which should be in early October. We can't wait to get started on it again, as it's been about 4 months since we last worked on it. As we used to, we'll be releasing it with chapters from Usotsuki Lily volume 5 back to back. It's also a funny coincidence that our restarting of those two manga will coincide with our one-year anniversary of being a scanlation group. My how the time flies when you're scanlating manga.

Hungly for More Traps!?

Today we have a couple more one-shots from the seventh Josou Shounen anthology, Plum Group. The first is Osananajimi Rival, another one-shot by Mari Manishi, the author of Henshin! we released before. Kento Hiiragi is rivals with his childhood friend Nao Fujikawa, a girl his age. When she starts becoming more like a girl, he takes this as a challenge.

The second one-shot is Dousei Chuu! by Benny's, the author of Hitomeboressu!! that we did. When Shinya's uncle and aunt go overseas, he has to take care of his two younger cousins, Tsubasa Fujisaki and his younger brother Subaru. However, he's surprised to find both cross-dressing.

The Year of the Trap

Today we have a couple of old one-shots from Waai that never got released. The first is called Nonono. by Reku Fuyunagi and it was in the first issue. It's about a trap named Nono who goes to his lesbain friend Sei to become cuter than he already is. The second one-shot is called Yome ♂ by Zenzai Yoshihira and it was in the fifth issue. It follows Usagi Mitsuki, who recently married his shrine's trap god Runa. This one had some pretty...interesting lines. Hope you enjoy them both.

Trap Feelings

Here's chapters 5 and 6 of Onna no Ko Tokidoki Otoko no Ko. We're now caught up with the Waai series we're doing, and now we have some one-shots from Waai to do. Also today we have a very short, 4-page all-color one-shot from Oto Nyan, almost entirely scanlated by Njmanga; all we did was provide the translation, but he asked us to release it, so here it is.

As mentioned in a comment by an anon, Albedo is doing Balance Policy now. Don't know if they're doing any others from Change H, though. And Kemm asked about Tokidoki's categories at Manga Updates. It's listed as "False Shounen Ai", I assume, because Akira looks like a girl, but shows feelings for Yuusuke. The trap category is self-evident. As for transgender, I don't think that category should be there, as Akira affirms that he's a boy.

Waai Do You Ask? Because: Traps!

As you may already know from checking out Manga Updates or Maigo's website, chapter 6 of Reversible is finished, and it went pretty well for our first joint with them. For our second release today, we present to you chapter 4 of Onna no Ko Tokidoki Otoko no Ko, another series from Waai. It's been a long time since chapter 3 was released, so if you don't remember what's going on, head on over to Manga Fox to read the previous chapters, or you can also download them here. Two more chapter of Tokidoki are soon to follow.

To answer an anon's question, we have not picked up any other series that WOW!scans was doing, including any of the Change H series they were handling, which includes Balance Policy. We don't know if these will be continued by other groups, but we'll try to find out.

Dream Not of the Past, but of the Future

Chapter 5 of Past Future is done, which marks the start of another 3 month wait until the next chapter comes out. Reversible ch. 6 is nearly done, by the way.

About the navigation buttons, we are aware of the problems with IE, and according to our stats, 12% of visitors to this blog use IE. We've tried to find solutions with little success, so in the meantime we'll go back to bare links.

The Light at the End of the Cherry Grove

The final chapter of Sazanami Cherry is finished, though regrettably. This was a wonderful series, and it should have continued longer, but oh well, it was sweet while it lasted. So marks our first completed series. Kamiyoshi may or may not be starting another series in the next Waai issue, so we'll have to wait and see about that. Chapter 6 of Reversible will hopefully be out sometime this week, but it's Maigo that's doing most of the work, so it's on them.

Trap Maid Complex

As we said last time, here's the last two chapters of Otosuki volume 1, chapters 6 and 7. There are no more volumes or raws currently available, so this manga probably won't continue until the second volume gets released, which will probably be sometime late this year, or more likely, early next year. Next up, we're doing Sazanami Cherry and Past Future to start with our Waai projects.

To answer some questions, first Usotsuki Lily. Yes, the fifth volume has come out, but we won't have it until early October, primarily because of money issues. Even if we could get it a little earlier, honestly, it would only be a matter of a couple of weeks earlier. You've waited about 3 months already, so the matter of a couple weeks doesn't seem like much. This is the same reason why Kuragehime won't be started until October as well, though the eighth volume comes out in about 10 days. Love Allergen will continue after we're done with Usotsuki Lily vol. 5 and Kuragehime vol. 8.

An anon also asked about the status of Kokuhaku. We don't know if anymore chapters will appear in future volumes, so I would say don't get your hopes up about it continuing. Kokuhaku is the only one-shot in all of the Josou Shounen anthologies to get 4 chapters, so that's more love than most of the others get, but we hope it continues too.

Cross-dressing Dates!

To start out September, the first chapter we have today is chapter 5 of Otosuki. The second is the one-shot Zenryoku "Otome" by Cuteg, from volume 7, Plum Group. Nozomu goes out cross-dressing one day and is saved from a molester on a train by Shuuji, a college student.

The short delay from our usual schedule was in part caused by the translation of Reversible chapter 6, which I'm glad is done. Maigo Scans is working on cleaning the raws as we speak, so it hopefully won't be long before the chapter is out. This time around, we have a lot on our plate for Waai, with Reversible being just one aspect of that. We have raws for the final Sazanami Cherry, chapter 5 of Past Future, chapters 4, 5 and 6 of Onnanoko Tokidoki Otokonoko, and four one-shots from Waai (one from volume 1, one from volume 5, and two from volume 6). All of these we're doing on our own, except Reversible of course. Our first priority is to finish up volume 1 of Otosuki, and we'll be releasing the last two chapters from that volume next. As this is the only volume out presently, no more raws are available right now. Then we'll be doing all the Waai stuff for a few weeks, followed by more Josou Shounen one-shots.
