Party Like a Jellyfish!

Today we have Kuragehime chapter 66 for you. The chapter title comes from the Japanese title for the 1996 film It's My Party.

Also, regarding the use of public raws which someone asked about last time, we would prefer to buy the raws when the volumes come out like we've always done. The quality of public raws is not always the best, and we do believe in supporting the authors of the manga we work on by buying their volumes. This is also one of the main reasons why we do not supply raws. So, thank you for your continued patience and understanding.

To Love and to Cherish!

Finally, after a lot of work, here's the last quarter of volume 13 of Usotsuki Lily! Included are two bonus chapters and the author's usual long afterword. The first bonus chapter has to do with how Hinata's parents met, and the second has to do with Rawr and Muff. Also, after you're done reading the bonus content, you may want to look into the Izumi crane migration.

So, thus ends our 14th volume of Usotsuki Lily. Looking back on all we've done for this series is almost surreal. If you look back at the end of volume 4 (chapter 27, page 33), one of the readers told Ayumi Komura to get Usolily to over 12 volumes, and I'll tell you, at the time we were doing that volume about 2 and a half years ago, it didn't seem like Usolily would get that far at all. This is also reminiscent of the end of volume 9 (chapter 58.5, page 29) where a reader said that if it gets to over 20 volumes, there'll be an anime. By about March, there will be enough chapters to fill up through volume 16, and with no real end in sight, it would not be surprising at all if this series really did get to 20 volumes or more in the end. Hopefully you'll stick around long enough to see. We know we will.

Regarding volume 14, which came out last week, there are a few other projects that have been waiting in our backlog that we would like to focus on first, but it won't be too long before we start on the volume. Maybe next month, but if not, definitely sometime in March. Usotsuki Lily is just about to celebrate its 100th chapter next month on February 20th, so there are still many more chapters and volumes to come.

One Jellyfish to Rule Them All!

Finally, after 4 and a half months of waiting, the moment has come to restart Kuragehime with chapter 65 at the start of volume 13! It's funny, because from our perspective, it seems just like yesterday we were doing volume 12. Here's a funny statistic. Since when we released chapter 64 to now, we've released more individual chapters of other manga than the total number of Kuragehime's chapters. The exact number, going by our Baka Updates listing, is 73 chapters from then until now. Anyway, please enjoy Kuragehime. The chapter title's origin speaks for itself this time.

As a side note, the subject of the jellyfish reproductive system may be of interest to some who read this chapter for one page where the sex of Clara comes up.

Give Into Temptation!

Finally, here are the last two releases from Waai Mahalo, as joints with Deus Ex Scans, and both are one-shots. The first is Majo-san to Issho (Together with a Witch) by Kamaboko Red. A powerful, monster-slaying witch comes to a village where all the women have been abducted by a powerful monster living in the nearby forest. During her stay, the witch makes a young boy living in the village, who can also use magic, be her bodyguard.

The second is Boku ga Otouto to Nakayoku Naru Houhou (The Way I Get Closer to My Little Brother) by Shiki Kazutoki. Haruki used to be close with his younger brother Yuuki when they were younger, but they've since drifted apart. Haruki wants to use the chance of being alone with Yuuki to get on better terms with him, leading him to discover Yuuki's particular tastes.

Next up: Kuragehime.

To the Winner Go the Spoils!

So here's chapter 84 of Usotsuki Lily, the last main chapter in the volume, leaving a whopping 50 or so pages of bonus content at the end of this volume; that's about 1/4 of the whole volume, by the way. Ayumi Komura never ceases to amaze.

"This" is the End!?

The second to last batch from Waai Mahalo, brought to you as joint projects with Deus Ex Scans, starts off with chapter 3 of Boku no Geboku ni Nare!, which according to the last page is the final chapter. However, it is clear that the manga was merely cancelled, and therefore does not have a definitive ending, but for what's it's worth, here's the last installment.

The second release is a 4-koma one-shot titled Hataraite Kudasai, Haruko-sensei! (Please Work, Ms. Haruko!) by Hyaku Fujishiro. Haruko Sakurai is inspired by reading a certain trap manga magazine to become a daycare teacher. On her first day on the job, she aims to reenact some of her favorite scenes from the magazine.

There are just two more one-shots left to do for Mahalo. In other news, we will be restarting Kuragehime very soon.

Brought to you in collaboration with Deus Ex Scans, now for the two series apparently still ongoing from Waai Mahalo, which may or may not be transferred to Waai at some later date. The first is Hikaru to Hikari chapter 5 and the second is Onna no Ko Play chapter 3. Enjoy.

White is the Color of Youth!

All right, so chapter 82 of Usotsuki Lily is done, meaning we're halfway through the volume (in terms of page count). There's a couple main chapters left in the volume, and then a bunch of bonus content, but more on that later.

Also, early Happy Birthday to Ayumi Komura, whom we owe so many memories up to now, and so many more to come!

You Have the Right to Remain Cute!

All right, so there's good news and bad news. The good news is that chapter 7 of Himegoto+ is done. The bad news is that it's the final chapter. In fact, most of the series in this issue of Waai Mahalo are ending (except for Hikaru to Hikari and Onna no Ko Play), so it is unknown at this time whether Mahalo will be continuing after this. If not, it's likely Hikaru to Hikari and Onna no Ko Play will get absorbed into Waai, unless they get canceled. But please enjoy this last installment of Himegoto+, and hey, at least there are two other Himegoto manga still ongoing.

Cross-dressing Comes with Various Benefits!

Today we are happy to present the first three chapters of the Comic Rex version of Himegoto, so we're all caught up with it until the next issue. Unlike the version in Waai, this one has a regular manga format, and basically continues the story in parallel to the chapters in Waai. Although there are 3 chapters, the latter 2 combined is as long as chapter 1, so length-wise, it's basically 2 chapters. Hope you all enjoy the new serialization.

Chocolate Cake Wars!

Just like how we began 2013, we're starting out 2014 with our longest ongoing series, Usotsuki Lily! This is chapter 79 at the start of volume 13, and every time we begin a new volume, it's almost unbelievable that not only have we already done so much of Usolily, but that there's still so much more to go with the series still ongoing and chapter 100 about to be published next month!

We know that anyone who's still here reading this manga are the true fans, the ones who never gave up or gave in, even when Komura reused concepts (albeit with slightly new twists), or perhaps after reading 13 volumes (including volume 0 of course), you just want to see how it all eventually ends. Well, that's not gonna happen for a long time coming, so please enjoy our latest foray into this seemingly endless cross-dressing manga.
