The Things We Do for Those We Love!


We had to put this off for quite a while because of our other projects, but finally Mori no Takuma-san returns with chapters 7 and 8 at the beginning of volume 2. It probably won't take us that long to get done with the volume, and then we can get to Shounen Oujo v05 and Ookami Shounen v03.

To End is to Live!


After a little over 3 and a half months of working on this series, Okama Hakusho finally comes to an end with chapters 59, 60 and 61. The end of the volume also includes a short essay by psychiatrist and friend of Hideo Yamamoto, Yasufumi Nakoshi.

Thus completes one of our longest projects to date, and for its length, one of the fastest from start to finish. That was mainly due to it being relatively easy to work on, even if it had a good amount of difficulties to overcome. This was actually kind of a surprise project for us, since we weren't looking to pick it up when we did, but it just ended up turning out that way. Sometimes you can't predict when a series will drop in your lap when you're a scanlator, but at least for this series, it was a lot of fun to work on.

This was a type of series we have seldom encountered and it will stand as one of the most unique series we have done. Not only because of its age, 27 years old, but also because of Hideo Yamamoto's particular style. There certainly are some controversial elements in this manga, and it may not be for everyone, but we believe that Yamamoto completed what he set out to do: create a gender bender manga the likes of which had never been seen before and will never be seen again.

Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave!


And now we come to Okama Hakusho chapters 56, 57 and 58, leaving just a scant 54 pages in 3 chapters to close out the series after doing nearly 1,000 pages thus far. So please look forward to the conclusion of this very unique series.

Summers Come and Go, but Skirts are Forever!


After a lot of work over the past month, we now come to the end of Boy Skirt with chapter 13. This was a series that really deserved to be longer, and maybe if circumstances had been a little better, we could have at least gotten another one or two volumes so that the ending didn't seem as rushed. Although even when it was plagued early on by hiatuses, Boy Skirt still gave us a lot of good moments, however short it was. So for one last time, please enjoy the ending of Boy Skirt.

And as an added bonus, we've compiled a collection of manga snippets and illustrations for Boy Skirt that Tomohiro Shinohara posted on his Twitter account over the past couple of years or so; a few of them were also reposted to his pixiv account. It may not be much, but at least it offsets the almost complete lack of bonus content in the second volume.

Now for a status update for our other projects. Ookami Shounen v03 just came out a couple of days ago, and Shounen Oujo v05 comes out in about a week, both of which we will be starting on relatively soon early next month. But in the meantime, we still have nine chapters left to finish up Okama Hakusho, and also the long-overdue second volume of Mori no Takuma-san which we will be working on just before volume 3 comes out in a couple of weeks.

Beyond that, Mizutama Honey Boy v05 comes out in October, Shimanami Tasogare v02 will probably come out late this year or early next year, and unfortunately, Kuragehime has been on hiatus since January.
