Today, we have four more Josou Shounen one-shots from a couple of authors. The first one-shot is *Little Big Sister* by Haruka Ogataya (the author of Potemayo). Mizuna is constantly annoyed by his older sister Natsume who often gets in the way of his studying. When he's stuck on a math problem, Natsume suggests he take a break, leading to her dressing him up in one of her old outfits. This is from v01 White Group, and is the final one from that volume.
The next one is Sis+Love, also by Haruka Ogataya. Hanatarou Yamada applies for a job at the Yusuhara daycare center to get closer to Itsuki, a boy who works there who Hanatarou believes is a girl due to a chance encounter a few months before. This is from v11 Grape Group.
The last two are the two installments of Otoko Michi by Tsubomi Fuwano. However, although they share the same title, they're basically separate stories. For chapter 1, Tsubomi Fuwano gets an offer from his editor Aso to draw a cross-dressing manga. However, Aso is sorely disappointed at Tsubomi's lack of understanding when it comes to cross-dressing. This is from v04 Blue Group, and is the last one from that volume. For chapter 2, Hizumi Uwano decides to enter a cross-dressing contest for manga authors in an attempt to beat out another manga author, Jakiko Daigouin. This is from v07 Plum Group, and is the last one from that volume. One thing about Tsubomi Fuwano's manga is that they are very absurd and parody cross-dressing manga, so if you're into gag manga, these are for you.
And so, we've now completed 9 of 17 volumes, and have just 10 one-shots left to do.

In a year where many of our series have already ended, including Kyou Kara Yonshimai, Sweet Magic Syndrome, Kakukaku Shikajika, Stop!! Hibari-kun! and Himegoto, it seems only proper that one of our all-time oldest projects, Josou Shounen, which we've now been working on on-and-off for four years, also comes to an end this year. And so, we've gone back to the volumes we still hadn't finished and are attempting to finally get out all 142 one-shots from the series' 17 volumes (5 of which we've already completed). In our first batch release, we have six one-shots. There are 14 left to do.
The first three are called Hebiichigo to Watashi. by Seishirou Mori. Noriko Nikaidou creates her own doujinshi, and she often gets help from her childhood friend Harunosuke Tsubaki who enjoys wearing traditional Japanese clothing for women. The first one-shot is from v02 Peach Group, the second one is from v08 Melon Group (and is the last one-shot from that volume), and the third one is from v10 Satsuma Group.
The next one-shot is Boku to Okihanabi. and is also by Seishirou Mori. Kotegawa confides in his friend Mikajiri that he wants to try going out dressed as a girl instead of just doing it at home. Mikajiri decides to give his friend an incentive to do it. This one is from v13 Plum Group.
The next one is Fuwafuwa no Boku Dake ni Kirameku Hikari by Dangan. Daijirou Umehara enjoys dressing up as his alter ego "Umeko" and going to a local arcade to be fawned over by the boys there, but what he enjoys most is playing games with Mario, a boy who's about the same age as him. This one is from v03 Princess Group, and is one of the one-shots we're getting a little help with this time around by cleaner/redrawer AliceFireSteam who recently stopped by our IRC channel.
The last one from this batch is Binbou Tamanashi! by Tsun. Hajime borrows some money from a girl he knows named Kimura. In order to pay her back, Hajime agrees to do a part-time job for a hero show she found for him where he must dress up as a girl. This one is from v03 Princess Group, and is also one AliceFireSteam helped us out with.

And now for more Yuri na Watashi to Akuma na Kanojo (?) with chapter 4 that was posted online less than 24 hours ago. Luckily, this was a relatively easy chapter to get through, so we're glad to get it out to you as fast as possible.

We've had a lot of fun working on this series, but now here's the end of Hana wa Nisemono with chapters 7, 8 and the short epilogue. We wish this series could have been at least 2 volumes long, since there were a lot of other places this series could have gone and explored, but as a 1 volume series, we enjoyed it for what it had to offer, and in a lot of ways, we were surprised by some of the themes and directions it took. We would definitely enjoy doing a series with similar themes in the future.
