Is My Swimsuit Too Tight?


Finally, here's the bonus spin-off one-shot from the end of the volume. It's about one of Akira's classmates, Kaoru Kikkawa, who becomes the manager for the girl's swimming club and has to dress the part, too. It's a cute little one-shot, but like Otomegokoro, it really deserves more. With that, we've completed our third series.

Next up, we'll be getting back to those Josou Shounen one-shots that have been on the backburner for a while. In case anyone asks, we still have yet to get the volume with the raw with the next Zenryoku Otome installment. In related new, the 12th volume, Banana Group, came out, so we'll find out soon what's in it, though we probably won't have it for a couple months.

  1. Thanks for the translation. Yes, there should really have been more than just a single one-shot.

  3. Thanks for the release. I wish this had a second chapter with Akira and Kaoru meeting and finding out each other's secret.

    and i was going to ask of zenryoku otome, thanks.

    now i have a question.

    you buy the raws, right?
    how do you scan with the quality you have?

    1. The better paper quality of tankoubon raws may be involved, though the scan settings are generally the same for all groups: 300dpi for b/w pages, and 600dpi for color pages. The rest is up to experience.

    2. but how do you fisically scan the manga without damaging it?
      do you have a tutorial?

    3. All of the pages have to be debound from the volumes, so the volumes themselves are damaged. If you want to know how to scan without destroying the volume (save for the pages), see http://main.storminheaven.org/guide/main.html. It simply takes longer to scan and clean if the pages aren't debound, so we don't do it this way.
