Makeover Lily!

We're almost finished with Usotsuki Lily volume 5 with the release of chapter 34; only 18 pages left of bonus material, and then a semi-short break until the release of volume 6. Regarding the title page, if you were wondering what all that English is, try googling some of the sentences. It turns out they're parts of articles from old American newspapers. As to why Komura would do that, your guess is as good as mine.

An anonymous commenter last time asked for the clarification of the translation of Zenryoku Otome. The closest translation would be All Out Girl or All Out Maiden, playing on the fact that Nozomu tried his best to fool Shuuji (and everyone else) into believing he was a girl.

  1. I know what that newspaper thing is - it's somewhat common to use foreign language newspapers (especially English, but I've seen French almost as often, and some German as well) as a "texture" because it's exotic and stylish. There were actually screentones made, but I think Komura uses digital screentones? anyway, there's digital versions, too.

    It's the same way you go to the fabric store and see bolts with random Arabic or Chinese writing to give a "foreign" feel.

  2. Yay~
    Love ya~
    thanks for the chapter~~

  3. Ha h! Lily's always great, but this chapter seemed especially enjoyable.
    Thank you for your hard work!

  4. Does anyone know when the next volume will be released? Well, maybe it doesn't matter too much - I think I'd die of anticipation before it's released! Haha!

    Thanks again Hachimitsu Scans for another chapter well done!
