Life is Filled with Ups and Downs!

Finally, after many delays, here are the last two chapters of Kokuhaku, released in the 13th (Plum Group) and 14th (Watermelon Group) Josou Shounen volumes. We're sorry that it took so long, and we'll try to make sure at least ongoing series in Josou Shounen get timely releases from now on.

Now, regarding Kokuhaku, last June Ichijinsha released a separate volume of the series and retitled the series to Hatsu Kokuhaku (First Confession) for some reason. At the end of the volume, there were a few bonus pages featuring an epilogue to the series and a couple of pages of afterword from the author which are included at the end of chapter 8.

In a lot of ways, I'm sad to see this series end, since it was one of my top favorites from the Josou Shounen anthologies, and it was one of the main reasons why we started scanlating the volumes (it being the second series we did from the volumes after Hybrid Boy) so it's sad to know that there won't be anymore in future volumes. But it was a nice little series, and we hope you enjoyed it too.
