Can't See the Forest for the Trees!

So with this, volume 15 of Usotsuki Lily is finished. Included is a short bonus chapter about En's parents, and unlike most of the other volumes, there is only a single page for the author's afterword this time. As for the rest of the series, as we have mentioned before, the series ended serialization earlier this month at chapter 105, meaning 7 main chapters left (and at least one other bonus chapter that we know of).

Although we originally thought they would just put the last 7 chapters into one more volume, Komura says that Usolily is going to actually end with volume 17. What this means, as far as we can tell, is that volume 16 should contain most of the rest of the chapters, up to chapter 103 or 104, and volume 17 will contain the rest in addition to all the Boy's Lily chapters that were serialized in The Margaret over the past year and a half.

So, volume 16 is planned to come out in late August, meaning the earliest we'll get a chance to work on it will be September. On top of that, the volume for Kenjutsu Komachi is also planned to come out in August, so we'll be releasing any bonus content Komura is bound to include in it. As for volume 17 of Usolily, it will probably be released later on this year in November or December. So, we hope the wait isn't going to be too painful, and that you'll find the conclusion of Usolily later on this year well worth the wait.

As for what's upcoming, we may not release anything for the rest of May. We've actually been working pretty much non-stop for the past 5 months or so doing all this:
  • 3 volumes of Usotsuki Lily (and the Usolily Out! one-shot)
  • 2 volumes of Bokura no Hentai
  • 1 volume of Kuragehime
  • 1 volume of Kakukaku Shikajika
  • 1 volume of Sweet Magic Syndrome
  • 2 issues of Waai!
  • 1 issue of Waai! Mahalo
  • And a bunch of single releases for Himegoto and Kenjutsu Komachi
Not bad for about 150 days. So, we just need a small 7 to 10 days to breathe before we get back to some more. Our next release will probably be the next Himegoto from Comic Rex after we get the raws for it right at the end of the month. For our other ongoing series, the next Bokura no Hentai volume should probably be out in July, the next Kakukaku Shikajika volume should probably be out in August, and the next Kuragehime volume should probably be out in September. Shounen Oujo is still MIA in Sylph, so we don't know what's going on with that.

The Love of Another!

So finally, here's chapter 98 of Usotsuki Lily, the last main chapter in the volume, and thus the last main chapter for a while (September at the earliest). The rest of the volume is just the bonus content at the end to be released soon.

The Tongue Never Forgets!

Luckily this was a rather quick chapter, so here's chapter 97 of Usotsuki Lily. As you might guess from the cover image, this chapter was originally published last December a few days before Christmas. And so, there is one more main chapter left in the volume, followed by the bonus one-shot mentioned earlier in the volume (and viewable on the table on contents). In fact, because of how this volume is laid out, the Whatever Lily for that one-shot is the second page of this chapter, so if you don't want to read it yet, skip over page 2 and go right to page 3 for now. Albeit, there is very little on that page, so reading it wouldn't really tell you anything about the one-shot other than who it focuses on, but I thought I should at least mention it.

Food Will Always Bring Us Together!

Moving right along, here's Usotsuki Lily chapter 96. Things are able to move so fast when we're only focusing on a single series this time around, even if Usolily is somewhat time intensive.

When Push Comes to Shove!

Usotsuki Lily chapter 95 is done, meaning that there are only 10 chapters left! Although for now, we're halfway through volume 15, with still a few main chapters left to go for the time being.

The Fruits of One's Labor!

And now for chapter 94 of Usotsuki Lily. It's just occurring to us now, but this arc has somewhat coincided with the approach of Mother's Day this Sunday, so enjoy!

If At First You Don't Succeed!

Here's chapter 93 of Usotsuki Lily. Not much else to say, other than that there's a lot more to come.

When In Doubt, Cross-dress!

Although it feels like it was yesterday since we last worked on Usotsuki Lily (in truth, it was 35 days ago), here we are at the start of volume 15 with chapter 92. This release comes with the added realization that Usolily just ended its serialization in Margaret on May 2nd, so the end is really starting to feel real. Volume 16 should contain the final chapters, and Boy's Lily's volume will most likely come out around the same time (which also seems to have just ended its serialization in The Margaret), so there is still a lot left to work on for the time being. As a note for chapter 92, there is something mentioned on the last page of the chapter about volume 1, which has to do with the last page of chapter 3.

And as a very special, and far too overdue release today, we are happy to present a short one-shot titled Usolily Out! that Ayumi Komura created in collaboration with Sakura Kenjou, author of Sold Out!. You may also remember Kenjou from drawing En on the bonus page of chapter 2. Anyway, Usolily Out! was released in a charity book to raise money for the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Chronologically, the one-shot would have been released around the same time chapter 40 was serialized in Margaret.

Now, before you ask us why it took us over 2 and a half years to release this 8-page one-shot, the fact is that we did not have access to it until now. We had hoped that it would have been released as a bonus at the end of an Usolily volume, but now that it seems like that's never going to happen, we somehow managed to get a copy (although this was not easy, since it had been sold out of most retailers long ago). Suffice it to say, this is a very rare book, and the one-shots in it were not re-published anywhere else to our knowledge (or at least that was the case for Usolily Out!). So with that, please enjoy the releases as we continue working on Usolily volume 15.

There's No Rest for the Cute!

Here we have chapter 8 of Himegoto from the latest Comic Rex. Funnily enough, this is our first gender-bender related release since the last Himegoto release a month ago. As we mentioned before, next we'll be doing Usotsuki Lily volume 15.
