Wine Never Tasted So Sweet!


Now we come to the end of Moyashimon volume 6 with chapters 72 and 73, which also includes some bonus content at the end. Although this is the point where the anime's second season ended, some of volume 7 was also adapted at the beginning of the second season.

In addition to that, there's also another bonus chapter that never made it into volume 6. What happened during the serialization is that a small chapter to commemorate the first anime's premiere was released the same day the first episode aired and it was released as chapter 68, but it had nothing to do with the story, so it was later removed. This means that chapters 68-73 in volume 6 were originally numbered 69-74, which is why volume 7 begins with chapter 75 and not 74. So our release of chapter 74 is this missing bonus chapter that created the odd gap between volumes 6 and 7, and we were just lucky enough to find scans of it still online after nearly 10 years since it was released.

And so with that, there are now 7 volumes and 85 chapters left to go as we finally near the halfway point with volume 7 coming up next.

Love Will Find a Way!


Here's the end of the Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely volume, a one-shot titled Yowamushi Kareshi to Kuroi Neko, which is a sequel to the previous one-shot Yowamushi Kareshi to Rokudenashi from the first Nisekoi Boyfriend volume. Also included is a bonus manga featuring the same characters from Yowamushi Kareshi. We had a lot of fun coming back to Nisekoi Boyfriend after nearly 3 years, and we hope that maybe Ataru Yamamoto will get to draw more of it in the future.

And now for an update to our ongoing projects. The next most-recent volumes that will be coming out will be Kami-sama no Ekohiiki v02 in late September, followed shortly by Mizutama Honey Boy v07 in October (most likely), and Shiomi-chan v03 in November (most likely). After that, we expect the last volume of Kuragehime to be released before the end of the year, since it's ending later this month in Kiss, so probably sometime between October and December.

And then the uncertainty only grows for three of our other projects. Shounen Oujo has been on hiatus since June, and there is currently no expected date for the next released chapter. Since there will probably need to be at least another 2 or 3 chapters released before v06 comes out, it's probably unlikely it will come out this year, unfortunately. The other series on hiatus is LiLy, which hasn't posted a new chapter since March due to the author's maternity leave. However, since it's likely she already gave birth by now, that series will most likely start up again in the next few months, although that still means that v03 probably won't be out until around March or April next year.

There's also been somewhat of a shakeup for Shimanami Tasogare. Not only did it take a short break in Hibana earlier this year, but that magazine is also ceasing publication in the next issue to be released on August 7. Shimanami will probably continue in another magazine by Shogakukan, or at the very least, we still expect a third volume to come out eventually with the serialized chapters we haven't done so far, but if it takes a few months to release the next chapter in another magazine, that probably means that v03 won't be out until next year sometime. We just hope Yuuki Kamatani is able to continue it in some form.

But for now, we'll still be continuing Ookami Shounen and Seito Kaichou on a monthly basis, as well as finally restarting Moyashimon with v06 up next.

Love is a Fight Worth Winning!


Here's Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely chapter 5, which is the end of the story for these characters. Also included are a couple of small bonus manga Ataru Yamamoto did for Nisekoi Boyfriend a little before she did this sequel. All that's left in the volume is the Yowamushi Kareshi sequel one-shot.

The Truth is Hard to Swallow!


Per an anonymous comment on the last release, here's chapter 16.5 originally released before volume 3 came out. Most of its content was included at the end of volume 3, but for whatever reason, the title page and one of the 4-koma pages wasn't, but the entirety of this bonus chapter is included in this release regardless (since that's how it would have been had we released this before we did volume 3). So there are only 2 new pages, but please enjoy.

And so with the release of Ookami Shounen chapter 27, we're all caught up with the series for the moment. The next chapter will be released in about two weeks.

Today we have Seito Kaichou chapter 11, but also something a little extra. Kina Kobayashi, the author of Nanashi no Asterism, recently posted a continuation of the Asakura/Subaru bonus that we had released when we finished the series. The continuation was added to that file and re-uploaded for simplicity, but we also have a separate file of just the 4-page continuation.

The Truth Between the Lies!


With the release of Ookami Shounen chapter 25, we come to the end of volume 4. Also included at the end of the volume is some bonus manga.

And although normally this is where we would say see you again when volume 5 comes out, recent events have made it abundantly clear that, at least for this series, we cannot afford to wait for the next volume to be released to continue it, especially since we suspect it will be the last volume, going by the developments in volume 4 (though we have been wrong before, so you can take that with a grain of salt). At any rate, we have decided to continue the series with the online raws as they become available every month, starting with chapters 26 and 26.5 released back in May and June. Currently, only chapter 27 is left to do, which we will be getting to shortly, and then we'll be caught up until the next release.

And also, we will be redoing these chapters from the volume raws when those become available too, so no quality will be sacrificed in the long run. Thankfully, this is a relatively easy series to scanlate, and if it was any other series, we probably wouldn't do this because of the extra work involved.

That Special Someone!


Finally, after delaying this since the volume came out back in April, we now have time to work on Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely, the sequel to Ataru Yamamoto's Nisekoi Boyfriend mini series released as a couple of chapters in a volume back in 2014, although she also released some doujins for the series, one of which we did. Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely is longer than the original series at 5 chapters this time (plus a couple of small bonus extras), which constitutes most of the content in the volume. The last 35 pages in this volume are a continuation of the Yomamushi Kareshi to Rokudenashi one-shot from the previous volume. So in this release, we have the first two chapters of Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely.

The Other Side of Truth!


After exactly 10 months since we last worked on this, Ookami Shounen wa Kyou mo Uso o Kasaneru returns with chapters 18 and 19 with the start of volume 4, and this volume has the most chapters of any volume thus far, which also means that the chapters are on average smaller than most of the chapters up to now. But as such, there's a lot of content this volume, so although it shouldn't take us that long to complete this volume (this series being our easiest ongoing project by far), please enjoy.

Also, although there was a question over whether the characters were in junior high or high school as outlined on our last post for the series, namo recently confirmed on Twitter that the characters are in junior high. So for some reason, Ookami Shounen's official website itself is (as of this writing) still wrong in that it clearly says Itsuki is in high school. You'd think that someone would have fixed that in the three years that this manga has been serialized online, but I guess someone just derped. Glad to the see the author finally confirm it.

Try to Beat the Heat!


With the release of Shiomi-chan chapters 10 and 11, volume 2 comes to an end. As shown at the end of the volume, volume 3 will come out later this year, most likely November.

In the meantime, Ookami Shounen v04 came out today, so we'll be starting work on that as soon as it arrives in the next few days. We also haven't forgotten about Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely's single volume, and will be starting on that very soon.

On a side note, we now have over 4 million hits to this blog since its inception back in 2010. Thanks to everyone who comes here and also thanks for all the lovely comments we receive. We really do read every one.

What a Girl Wants!


After more than three months, Ayumi Komura's new series Kami-sama no Ekohiiki (or Kamieko for short) finally returns with the beginning of volume 1. Included in this batch are the first two chapters, which amounts to roughly half the volume by page count (there are five chapters in this volume).

Also, because of the rather poor quality of the magazine raws for chapter 1, which we had done our best to clean up before, we decided to completely redo chapter 1 using the raws from the volume, although the color pages from the original release are also included. So although it was a lot of work, it was worth it for this series, since we didn't really expect Komura to do another gender bender series so soon after the end of Usolily only a few years ago. It's really a shame that it doesn't seem like Komura gets the kind of recognition that she really deserves, but we hope that you'll enjoy what her newest series has to offer.

With the release of LiLy chapters 18 through 22, volume 2 comes to an end. Also, as mentioned at the end of the volume, the author Mayo Ebisawa is on maternity leave, so the manga has been on hiatus since March. That means that the series will probably restart relatively soon, so volume 3 might be out as early as March or April of next year, but we really won't know for sure until it restarts. Although we can be relatively sure that the next volume will not be out until next year.

When a Plan Comes Together!


After a lot of work over this past week, we are finally releasing Moyashimon chapters 57 through 60, ending volume 5, which also includes a bunch of bonus content at the end. This also marks the point where there are exactly 99 chapters in 8 volumes left in the series.

We grouped these four together because we are going to take a short break from Moyashimon so we can focus on some of our other projects for the time being. And so, we will not continue working on Moyashimon until August. In the meantime, we'll be finishing up LiLy v02 and then start working on Shiomi-chan v02 and Kami-sama no Ekohiiki v01, in addition to Ookami Shounen v04 after it comes out on July 15.

Just Play Along!


After a couple months since the last release, here's chapter 5 of the Boy Skirt 4-koma series. Tomohiro Shinohara posted on Twitter a couple of months back that his releases for this would start to be a lot slower, only releasing two or three pages a month at most, so this chapter includes pages released from late March up to a few days ago, so it's only 7 pages long. The reason being that Shinohara started a new manga called Nibiiro no Hako no Naka de on Line Manga in late April, but it still looks like he'll be continuing the Boy Skirt 4-koma for now. Also, the above color illustration was posted to his Twitter account a couple of days ago.

And in other news, we had a look at Norio Tsukudani's Twitter account today and discovered that she had updated her profile to show that Heroine Voice is now listed as having "2 volumes in total" (written on the profile as 「ヒロインボイス」全2巻). Previously, she had listed it as having completed "part 1" of the manga, and this is also shown on the last page of chapter 10 which said on the margin that "Part 1 is complete", so we had assumed that she had merely put the series on hiatus with the intention to continue it later. However, considering that the series did not seem all that popular, and it had a conclusive ending of sorts with chapter 10, it's possible that the editors of Comic Rex (published by Ichijinsha) simply cancelled the series. Also, she recently started a new series called Futaba-san-ke no Kyoudai published by Hakusensha, so it's likely that she is done with Ichijinsha. So if you want more from Tsukudani, you can check out her new series, currently being scanlated by Raptor Scans.
