Don't Forget Your Lucky Jellyfish!


Finally, chapter 77 of Kuragehime is finished, meaning we're almost done with the volume. This also happens to be the most recent chapter in the main series to be published, which was last October. Since then, only a few bonus chapters have been released, one of which is included in this volume. In addition, Kuragehime did not make an appearance in Kiss this month, and it is currently unknown when it's going to appear again, though at the moment, Higashimura is serializing her Tokyo Tarareba Musume manga in the magazine.

What that means is that unless Higashimura starts releasing TTM and Kuragehime simultaneously, it could be a long wait until there are enough chapters to fill the next volume, maybe even until August or September. That said, there still remains about 40 pages left in v15 to do, so there's still that to look forward to as soon as we get to it. For this chapter, the title comes from the first novel in the James Bond series, Casino Royale, and its later movie adaptations in 1967 and 2006.

Also, the latest issue of Comic Rex just came out, so there will be another Himegoto chapter soon.

A Nice Way to Beat the Summer Heat!


Now we're done with Stop!! Hibari-kun! chapters 22 and 23, with the latter being another full-color chapter. An interesting note that may clear up some confusion in chapter 23 is that these two chapters were originally published about 3 and a half months apart due to the author apparently taking a hiatus in mid-1982.

Jellyfish Dungeon!


So here's Kuragehime chapter 76, about halfway through the volume. The chapter title comes from the Japanese title of the 2006 South Korean movie The Host (called Goemul: Hangan no Kaibutsu, or Goemul: The Monster of the Han River).

Jellyfish in the Sky!


Finally, after a very long 108 day hiatus, Kuragehime comes back with chapter 75 at the start of volume 15! Can you really believe it's already been 75 chapters? And that we've been scanlating this manga almost since day one over four years ago? The good thing is that this manga has actually gotten easier to scanlate over time, and as a result, the volumes are generally very quick to run through. This volume especially, since there are only 4 chapters, as opposed to the normal 5 per volume, so we're already about a quarter of the way through the volume. The chapter title comes from the Japanese title of the 2010 animated movie Tangled (called Tou no Ue no Rapunzel, or Rapunzel Up in the Tower).
