Cross-dressing is a Way of Life!

In a year where many of our series have already ended, including Kyou Kara Yonshimai, Sweet Magic Syndrome, Kakukaku Shikajika, Stop!! Hibari-kun! and Himegoto, it seems only proper that one of our all-time oldest projects, Josou Shounen, which we've now been working on on-and-off for four years, also comes to an end this year. And so, we've gone back to the volumes we still hadn't finished and are attempting to finally get out all 142 one-shots from the series' 17 volumes (5 of which we've already completed). In our first batch release, we have six one-shots. There are 14 left to do.

The first three are called Hebiichigo to Watashi. by Seishirou Mori. Noriko Nikaidou creates her own doujinshi, and she often gets help from her childhood friend Harunosuke Tsubaki who enjoys wearing traditional Japanese clothing for women. The first one-shot is from v02 Peach Group, the second one is from v08 Melon Group (and is the last one-shot from that volume), and the third one is from v10 Satsuma Group.

The next one-shot is Boku to Okihanabi. and is also by Seishirou Mori. Kotegawa confides in his friend Mikajiri that he wants to try going out dressed as a girl instead of just doing it at home. Mikajiri decides to give his friend an incentive to do it. This one is from v13 Plum Group.

The next one is Fuwafuwa no Boku Dake ni Kirameku Hikari by Dangan. Daijirou Umehara enjoys dressing up as his alter ego "Umeko" and going to a local arcade to be fawned over by the boys there, but what he enjoys most is playing games with Mario, a boy who's about the same age as him. This one is from v03 Princess Group, and is one of the one-shots we're getting a little help with this time around by cleaner/redrawer AliceFireSteam who recently stopped by our IRC channel.

The last one from this batch is Binbou Tamanashi! by Tsun. Hajime borrows some money from a girl he knows named Kimura. In order to pay her back, Hajime agrees to do a part-time job for a hero show she found for him where he must dress up as a girl. This one is from v03 Princess Group, and is also one AliceFireSteam helped us out with.

A Cold Day in Heaven!

And now for more Yuri na Watashi to Akuma na Kanojo (?) with chapter 4 that was posted online less than 24 hours ago. Luckily, this was a relatively easy chapter to get through, so we're glad to get it out to you as fast as possible.

Love is More Than Just a Word!

We've had a lot of fun working on this series, but now here's the end of Hana wa Nisemono with chapters 7, 8 and the short epilogue. We wish this series could have been at least 2 volumes long, since there were a lot of other places this series could have gone and explored, but as a 1 volume series, we enjoyed it for what it had to offer, and in a lot of ways, we were surprised by some of the themes and directions it took. We would definitely enjoy doing a series with similar themes in the future.

That Lingering Feeling!

Hana wa Nisemono chapters 5 and 6 are done, leaving just two chapters left in the series, and then a short epilogue, which we hope to finish up in the next couple of days.

Be Careful What You Wish For!

Now that we have a little bit of time to kill before many of our other projects restart later this year, we decided to first start out with the 1-volume series Hana wa Nisemono by Hiroko Sengoku. Mori and Ayumu are a gay couple in college in a happy relationship. However, after Ayumu prays at a shrine for them to always be together, the shrine's deity intervenes by turning him into a girl, and now everyone except for them think Ayumu has always been a girl.

We were instantly drawn to this series for the cute art and basic premise, which although being a gender bender, is new territory for us, since we've never done a magical gender transformation like this before. And it's relatively perfect timing too, since even though this manga originally appeared online way back in late 2012, it only just got a completed volume a couple of weeks ago, and we were lucky enough to stumble across it now before another group picked it up.

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures!

With the release of Full Dozer chapters 11 and 12, volume 2 comes to a close, and we managed to get it done right before the last chapter is released in Margaret in a couple of days. The third and last volume comes out in late October, so we'll be finishing up the series later this year and we'll be eagerly awaiting Ayumi Komura's next series to begin serialization on October 20.

In Love and War, Take No Prisoners!

Now we come to Full Dozer chapters 9 and 10, marking more than halfway through the volume and two chapters left until we wait for volume 3. Hopefully, we'll be done with volume 2 by sometime next week. Quite a bit of work actually goes into this series (well, anything by Ayumi Komura, really), so we hope you all enjoy it.

If You've Got It, Flaunt It!

It's only been a couple of months, but Full Dozer returns with chapters 7 and 8 at the start of volume 2. As we mentioned before, Full Dozer ends in about a week, so we're pretty close to halfway through the series already, as odd as that may sound since not that much has happened in the story thus far. That said, it'll make the series a pretty quick read when we finish it up later this year.

About that Taiyou/Ten one-shot Komura mentioned at the end of Usolily v17, we still periodically look for it on the Margaret Bookstore app, but it either never appeared, or was posted for a very short time and then taken down before we got a chance to see it. Either way, it's been about 9 months since she announced it, and although we are still hopeful that it will eventually show up, since it's been so long already, there's also the possibility that someone from the editing department or even Komura herself simply decided not to put it on the app for whatever reason, and unless Komura talks about it again someday, we may never know.

Cross-dressing Will Never Die!

Finally, the time has come to say goodbye to Himegoto for the last time with the extras from volume 6. Aside from the bonus illustrations at the end of the chapters, there's a small, 2-page afterword with a few of the author's final thoughts. The series has been a lot of fun, and we're looking forward to Norio Tsukudani's next manga, which will hopefully start soon.

In other news, we're finally going to start on Full Dozer volume 2, and we just found out today that the manga is set to end in the next issue of Margaret to be released on August 20th. So, the series will end up being three volumes long and we'll be finishing it up later this year as we eagerly anticipate news of Ayumi Komura's next work.

I Heard the Owl Scream and the Crickets Cry!

So with Bokura no Hentai chapter 33, volume 8 comes to a close, which unfortunately means we'll be waiting 3 months until volume 9 comes out in November at the same time as Sakura no Sono's second and last volume.

Seeing as how a lot of the earlier conflict surrounding Marika, Yui and Parou has been resolved as of late, Bokura no Hentai may be close to ending, but it will obviously continue for at least another 2 volumes. We'll just have to wait and see, but hopefully this series continues beyond that.

Next up, the extras from Himegoto volume 6.
