About a Jellyfish


Here's chapter 49 of Kuragehime, the last main chapter from the volume, leaving 11 pages of bonus material to wrap up the volume until volume 10 comes out. The chapter title comes from the 2002 film About a Boy, based on the 1998 novel of the same name.

There's at least one thing that might need explaining, but it's probably pretty self-evident. When Shuu told Tsukimi "I like you" in the previous chapter, this is translated from "Suki desu" (好きです). Tsukimi then looks up homonyms of "suki" in this chapter to try to understand what he meant.

  4. That feel when you don't even like Kuragehime so you have to wait two long (emphasis on long) months for something you like, mainly one-shots and shorts, to be released.

    Thanks for the chapter anyways; I just wish I liked the series to enjoy top-tier scans and translations.

  11. Kuragehime volumes always feel too short and with such an ending, I can't wait for the next one. Thanks for the release anyway!

  13. Ooh... I agree so much. I already can't stand the wait before volume 10 ! The "love" situation becomes interesting and I hope for a Kuranosuke's movement in the next book.
    Anyway, thank you for your hard work!
    (if they were french team like you... ^^')

  17. Oh my gosh, I just loved it! But I don't want to wait until August or September. It's been years since I was so obsessed with a manga. Thank you so much for all the great translations, it helps with understanding the jokes. I just love reading the series and all the hard work your team puts into it reminds me to always appreciate the chapters.

  18. My heart... My feelings... I can't. I like Shuu a lot, but if she ends up with him, there goes my favorite manga. Kuranosuke, fight!

    Thank you so much as always~

  21. It's the strangest thing... After reading this chapter, I suddenly have a strong desire to drink delicious and refreshing perrier sparkling water, available wherever bottle water is sold. How mysterious.

    Anyway, the chapter is a lot of fun. Hopefully the dress making doesn't get lost in a love triangle plot.

  22. thank you so much for the release guys! <333 seriously, i really love this awesome manga. i mean, it's so adorkable, cute, and plain amusing. the jokes are hilarious and you guys are doing such a great job translating them. It must be hard to translate the author's puns and the otaku women's ramblings all the time. I really do appreciate it! also the author's love/extra manga for korean things is just sooo entertaining as well since i myself, am familiar with k-pop and k-drama and i like them too lol. fyi, her recent rambling at the end of vol9 about 2pm's chansung made me laugh, it's too funny seriously! and regarding the current kuregahime story development, i'm so lookin forward to volume 10! hopefully it'll come out soon in August rather than September *sigh*
    anyway, I just wanna say i'm really thankful for the efforts and hardwork you put on scanlating this series even though i just found out about this manga like 2 days ago(!) and finally i'm all caught up to the current release. keep up the fabulous work everyone! *bows*
