Student Council Trap Mania!

Today we start with a surprise and a rather long blog post. In Waai volume 7, there are two new series, and we're scanlating both of them. The first is a 4-koma called Himegoto by Norio Tsukudani, and tells the story of Hime Arikawa, a second-year high school student down on his luck with a huge debt, not entirely unlike Hayate from Hayate no Gotoku. While running from some yakuza debt collectors, he is saved by the members of his school's student council, three beautiful and quirky girls. Hime is simply too cute for his own good, so this one is highly recommended.

There are a few things that should be explained about the translation. The first is the name of the vice president, who is only known by her alias, which is translated as "18+-san", as in 18 or older / adult only. The original text is 18禁さん (18-kin-san / Juuhachi-kin-san), so 18+-san is what we went with. The next thing is the name of the secretary, Albertina. The original text for Albertina is アルベルティーナ (Aruberutiina), so for short she says to call her ベルさん (Beru-san). This is translated as "Bell-san", since that's what it'd normally be. Lastly, on page 11 there's a piece of paper with some text on it that'd be nearly impossible to read at the resolution these pages are set at, so we attached an original-sized version of the panel with the piece of paper at the end of the chapter with our usual credits page.

Also, the artist drew some lovely color images of the characters and posted them on Pixiv two weeks ago. Below is the composite image of the four characters, and (for those who don't have a Pixiv account) the download link below has the larger single images as well; or, if you do have an account, you can head over to the image's page.

Moving on, today we also have the final chapter of Onna no Ko Tokidoki Otoko no Ko, chapter 7. Admittedly, this series wasn't that good, and the ending leaves much to be desired, but here you go.

Now, this is regarding Love Allergen. Originally, we had planned to start volume 3 in November, but there were various things that prevented this from happening. The first, and perhaps most obvious, is that Kuragehime vol. 8 and Usotsuki Lily vol. 5 took longer than previously expected to finish. After they did finish, however, there were already comments asking for the Josou Shounen sequel chapters we had mentioned weeks before, so we wanted to get those four out finally. When they were done, we decided to finish the ninth Josou Shounen volume first, as there were only 3 one-shots left. However, when those were done, Waai vol. 7 came out, and now we're working on that. We do feel bad about Love Allergen being pushed back, but we haven't forgotten about it.

As we said, there are two new series in the current issue of Waai. The second is called Otasuke Miko Miko-chan. We're going to release the first chapter of this next (which has three bonus color pages), and then we'll start on Love Allergen vol. 3. After that's done, we'll return to Waai and do the three one-shots that came in the current issue.

Lastly, Katagiri asked about raws last time. Please check our FAQ page for our policy on raws.

  5. Thank you :D
    I guess im the only one that liked tokidoki...

  6. Thanks!

    tokidoki wasnt horrible, but it felt kind of rushed and could have easily been expanded into two chapters.

  7. So guys, any plan to salvage the project from WOW!scans? It's been to long the 'Kaichu!', 'Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru (and it's prequel serie)' sinks from the face of earth...

  8. I'm one of thoso who didn't liked Tokidoki. :P

    Himegoto looks funny, lt's see how will be ch 2.

  9. well that is one way to finish a trap manga...an open ending but i didnt really like Tokidoki so whateveeer.

    Himegoto was funny but too bad he was revealed in the very 1st chapter. Will look forward to chapter 2. Himeeee so kawaii >w<
