Pray You Now, Forget and Forgive

And with the release of chapter 5, our week-long venture into Bokura no Hentai comes to an end for now. Volume 2 should probably be out early next year, maybe January or February; can't say for sure. We wouldn't really mind working out of the magazine for this, but alas, no raws are available.

Next up, we're restarting Usolily and our usual Waai releases.

Misery Acquaints a Man with Strange Bedfellows

Chapter 4 of Bokura no Hentai is now done, meaning one more chapter in the volume. If anyone's been keeping track, the latest volume of Waai came out yesterday, so expect new releases from that magazine soon.

I Must be Cruel, Only to be Kind

Here's chapter 3 of Bokura no Hentai and we're already more than halfway done with the volume.

What's in a Name?

We said we had picked up a new series, and here it is: the first two chapters of Bokura no Hentai by Fumiko Fumi. Ever since we saw it start serialization in Comic Ryuu just this past March, we knew we had to pick it up when the first volume was released, which just happened to be earlier this month. In a way, it's similar to Hourou Musuko, so fans of that series should enjoy this one too.

The story centers around three boys in junior-high who cross-dress for their own personal reasons. "Parou"  wanted to catch the attention of a heterosexual boy he liked, so adopted a female persona. "Yui" takes on the persona of his dead older sister Yui. Lastly, "Marika" is transgendered. They met through a community website and decided to have an offline meeting.

Do Not Disturb

Here's chapters 2 and 3 of Himegoto+, so we're caught up with it for now. More to follow when the next Waai Mahalo volume comes out in late October. Embrace the cuteness.

Public Morals are Trap Morals

We've been putting this off for a while. This is the first chapter of Himegoto+, a spin-off of Himegoto featuring Hime's younger brother Kaguya as the main character. The color image at the top was posted on Pixiv, and the five color images are included with the first chapter. This is from Waai's sister magazine Waai Mahalo which is already in its second issue. While we can't do many of the series from Mahalo because of all the series we're already doing, we'll try to do a few, but more on that at some later date. There are two more chapters of Himegoto+ on the way.

And regarding the translation of the Otosuki stories, we do not have the resources or the time to translate them all, so we will not be able to work on them. It's not just those; there are many projects we'd love to do, but we have to prioritize things lest we take on too much, get burned out and die a la Wow/14BiQ.

____ the Maids!

Feel free to put whatever word you like into the post title, because this is the final time for Otosuki with the release of chapter 14 and the end of volume 2. And the color image at the top was taken from Chikage Mitsukura's blog. It was fun working on this series, which just happened to coincide with most of the Olympics, since we started working on it a couple of days after it started, and ended it on the day of the closing ceremonies. Here's hoping that Tokyo win's their bid for the 2020 games.

To answer sage's question from last time, you've probably taken a look at our FAQ page, so you should already know our stance on distributing raws. That's why we put it in our FAQ.

Now onto upcoming releases. Usotsuki Lily will be returning in early September, probably right around when we get the raws of the next issue of Waai. After we're done with those releases, we'll be restarting Kuragehime and Shounen Oujo, most likely in early October. The delay on the latter two is due to the release date of Kuragehime v10 in mid-September and shipping time. Through the end of the year and beyond, we'll be peppering our releases with Josou Shounen continuations, including Kokuhaku, Zenryoku "Otome", Josou Debut, Boku no Koto Suki ni Natte, and others, including some new one-shots if we can.

With this, we finish yet another of our main series, and our second to be completed in the past month after the end of Love Allergen. You may be wondering if we're going to be picking up a new series to take their place, and all I'll say is that we already have a series in mind. It's very new, and just started it's serialization earlier this year, so look forward to it, whatever it may be. To be clear, it's not related to Waai or Oto Nyan, but it is a gender bender series.

We had received numerous requests via email for new series and to finish some old ones that got abandoned, but we have not accepted any offers to date. Our FAQ says it's doubtful that we'd accept a request, but of course it does not hurt to ask. However, please understand that our resources are limited, and we're usually able to get releases out quickly because of the number of series we work on concurrently, and of course, we must have a vested interest in any series we do.

We realize that since the re-death of 14BiQ Scans/WOW!scans last May, that again leaves us the sole trap-centric scanlation group (that I know of), which unfortunately leaves a lot of series undone and incomplete, but in the end, we do what we can for the promotion of gender bender manga, and maybe even hope to inspire other similar groups to pop up and compete for the hearts of trap lovers everywhere. A quick look at our earliest releases will tell you we had the most basic of knowledge of the scanlation process (we're still embarrassed about this little fiasco), but we have gained experience and in the end, let the quality of our (more recent) releases do the talking. So stay tuned for the next phase of Hachimitsu Scans.

I'm Here to Serve

Only one chapter left to go with the release of Otosuki chapter 13. I guess the manga wasn't all that popular in Japan, but then again, series get canceled left and right in Comp Ace.

To answer an anon's question, the artist, Chikage Mitsukura, has not worked on any other manga according to Baka.

One day later, here's chapter nine of Otosuki. The chapters are all relatively short, hence the quick release.

Welcome Back, Master!

After a long hiatus, we're finally starting the second and final volume of Otoko no Ko wa Maid Fuku ga Osuki!? with the release of chapter 8. It was a surprise to us too that the manga ended after only two volumes, but at least the manga will be complete soon.
