Can't See the Forest for the Trees!

So with this, volume 15 of Usotsuki Lily is finished. Included is a short bonus chapter about En's parents, and unlike most of the other volumes, there is only a single page for the author's afterword this time. As for the rest of the series, as we have mentioned before, the series ended serialization earlier this month at chapter 105, meaning 7 main chapters left (and at least one other bonus chapter that we know of).

Although we originally thought they would just put the last 7 chapters into one more volume, Komura says that Usolily is going to actually end with volume 17. What this means, as far as we can tell, is that volume 16 should contain most of the rest of the chapters, up to chapter 103 or 104, and volume 17 will contain the rest in addition to all the Boy's Lily chapters that were serialized in The Margaret over the past year and a half.

So, volume 16 is planned to come out in late August, meaning the earliest we'll get a chance to work on it will be September. On top of that, the volume for Kenjutsu Komachi is also planned to come out in August, so we'll be releasing any bonus content Komura is bound to include in it. As for volume 17 of Usolily, it will probably be released later on this year in November or December. So, we hope the wait isn't going to be too painful, and that you'll find the conclusion of Usolily later on this year well worth the wait.

As for what's upcoming, we may not release anything for the rest of May. We've actually been working pretty much non-stop for the past 5 months or so doing all this:
  • 3 volumes of Usotsuki Lily (and the Usolily Out! one-shot)
  • 2 volumes of Bokura no Hentai
  • 1 volume of Kuragehime
  • 1 volume of Kakukaku Shikajika
  • 1 volume of Sweet Magic Syndrome
  • 2 issues of Waai!
  • 1 issue of Waai! Mahalo
  • And a bunch of single releases for Himegoto and Kenjutsu Komachi
Not bad for about 150 days. So, we just need a small 7 to 10 days to breathe before we get back to some more. Our next release will probably be the next Himegoto from Comic Rex after we get the raws for it right at the end of the month. For our other ongoing series, the next Bokura no Hentai volume should probably be out in July, the next Kakukaku Shikajika volume should probably be out in August, and the next Kuragehime volume should probably be out in September. Shounen Oujo is still MIA in Sylph, so we don't know what's going on with that.

  1. Amazing!
    I'm a little sad that we have to wait for two volume releases, but oh well, like you said, it'll be worth the wait.

    Thanks for your hard work.

  2. Thanks for the hard work, definitely a well deserved break. Just a suggestion though, can you guys mind taking a look at this? http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%82%AA%E3%83%88%E3%82%B3%E3%81%AE%E5%A8%98%E3%82%B3%E3%83%9F%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E3%82%A2%E3%83%B3%E3%82%BD%E3%83%AD%E3%82%B8%E3%83%BC~%E5%A4%A9%E7%9C%9F%E7%88%9B%E6%BC%AB%E7%B7%A8~-%E3%83%9F%E3%83%AA%E3%82%AA%E3%83%B3%E3%82%B3%E3%83%9F%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E3%82%B9-%E3%81%8A%E3%81%A8%E2%98%85%E5%A8%98%E3%82%B7%E3%83%AA%E3%83%BC%E3%82%BA8/dp/4813053645

    Similar to Josou Shounen but Im not aware if its scanlated or not. Sorry about the link if its wonky.

    1. I'll have to second this. While the stories in the previous anthologies that I read didn't really strike me as that interesting, I really liked the second and the last stories in this volume.

  3. Hehe, take all the time you need~

    Awesome work you all do here :D

  4. thanks for all the hard work! Enjoy the well deserve rest!!! <3 <3 <3 <3

  5. i cant read it! its not online for mangareader.net

    1. Maybe download it instead of supporting shithead online reader sites

  6. "No gaps in this couple"? HAHAHAHAHA. En's mom and dad are one of the most loathsome couples and characters I've ever had the misfortune of seeing. He likes to flirt even knowing it hurts his wife, to the extent she moved to Italy, LEAVING HER FOUR SONS BEHIND, so she could "get back" at him in hopes to make him jealous. Yeah, sorry kids, but your mom and dad are in the middle of some petty bullshit, hope you don't mind I abandoned you lol! And then even getting her pregnant while she's overseas? So is she gonna raise the kid solo in Italy or have to quit her job to move back? Not to mention their dad's behavior made one of their kids, at least, resent him so much that he wished they'd get a divorce. Really wonderful.

    At least that horrible couple was balanced by the glory of Taiyou x Ten, though I still don't get where she'd get the idea that Taiyou would be a bottom. Ten is one of the bottomest bottoms I've ever seen both in personality and looks. In any case, since there's two more volumes left the next cover had better be a Taiyou x Ten one!!!! ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ)

    I thought it was pretty interesting that the point of Hinata possibly being jealous of their kids was brought up. More like it's surprising that I haven't seen it covered before, but maybe that sort of thing is addressed more in josei works...

    Anyhow, thanks for all your hard work!

    P.S. I know you've been asked if you're gonna complete Family Complete (lol) but do you have intentions of finishing Dousei Chuu? According to B-U it isn't completely scanlated... although B-U has been wrong before.

    1. The four chapters we released for Dousei Chuu as listed on http://hachimitsu-scans.blogspot.com/p/others.html are the only 4 chapters in the series. The volume release as listed on Baka, http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=90130, only had those 4 chapters in it, plus a few other, unrelated one-shots by Benny's that weren't even gender-bender related, so we saw no reason to do them.
