You Are Who You Are!

And now we come to the end of Shounen Oujo volume 4 with chapters 24 and 25, which we luckily were able to get done before the end of the year, as this will be our last release of 2015.

This is one of our most beloved series, and we hope that shows from all the work we put into the chapters, and how quick we're able to release the chapters once a volume comes out, which unfortunately is not all that often. Although there is no way to predict at this point when exactly the next volume comes out, seeing as how only two additional chapters have been released online, our tentative prediction is that volume 5 will come out sometime in 2016, possibly as early as August, or as late as November. However, if the manga ends with the next volume, it could be out as early as say June, but we'll see when we get there in six months.

As some final comments for the year, 2015 was probably the most transformative year we've had. When we started the year, we were still doing most of the series we had picked up over the past couple of years, but now most of those same series are all completed. Of all our major projects, there are only three left that predate any projects we picked up in 2015: Kuragehime, Shounen Oujo and Bokura no Hentai. The oldest pickup after that for our major projects is Boy Skirt, which we only started a year ago. So, while our projects have largely changed over the past year, our spirit and drive as a scanlation group is still going strong, and above all else, we are still primarily focused on gender bender series, more than any other group out there, as far as we know.

So we all hope you had a wonderful 2015, and that our releases helped you kill some time along the way. Please have a Happy New Year, and we'll see you all promptly on New Year's Day!

So Foul a Sky Clears Not Without a Storm!

So now that Bokura no Hentai chapter 37 and volume 9 are done, that leaves us with a relatively short wait until the 10th and final volume comes out, which we have now confirmed will be on March 12th (we had originally hoped for February). An interesting note about this chapter is that it was published in Comic Ryu's 100th issue, as alluded to with the title page (and another page in this chapter).

If It's Too Good to Be True...

Merry Christmas Eve (although it could also already be Christmas depending on where you live)! Today we have Shounen Oujo chapter 23, and we just might be able to finish the volume before the end of the year if we're lucky. But first comes the end of Bokura no Hentai v09.

Love is Merely a Madness!

Bokura no Hentai chapter 36 is done, leaving one more to go in the volume, and perhaps more crucially, just five chapters left in the series. All I want for Christmas is an anime announcement.

Information is Worth Its Weight in...Cross-dressing?

We've now reached the middle of the volume with Shounen Oujo chapter 22. In related news, although chapter 27 was just released on Comic It's website last week, it's taking a break next month, which of course means the release of volume 5 just got pushed back a month, whenever that may be. Obviously, it would appear that hiatuses, even short ones, still accompany this series, which does not bode well for a sooner rather than later release of volume 5. At this point, no more hiatuses would mean a release around the middle of 2016, but that's probably very unlikely. But although you can keep that in mind for later, there's still another three chapters left in this volume to get to, at least.

The Fairest Flowers of the Season!

After about four months, Bokura no Hentai starts up again with chapter 34 at the start of volume 9. This is actually the second to last volume, since the manga's last chapter is about to be published in Comic Ryu in less than a week. However, a listing for volume 10 has yet to appear on Amazon, and since it would probably already be there if it was coming out in January, it's more likely that the last volume will be out in February. But for now, please look forward to the rest of volume 9.

The Water is Always Bluer!

771 days. That is how long it's been since we released a chapter from Shounen Oujo, a series that we have now been working on for almost four years on and off, and yet have only three completed volumes and the current fourth volume to show for it. Why? Because this series, more than any other we've done, has been plagued by hiatuses almost since it began, not to mention taking a full two years off and then changing magazines earlier this year when it reappeared in Comic it in February.

To better put in perspective just how long it's been, since we finished volume 3 back in October 2013, we as a scan group have started and completed seven series (Kakukaku Shikajika, Oto Koi, Kyou Kara Yonshimai, Nisekoi Boyfriend, Full Dozer, Stop!! Hibari-kun!, and Hana wa Nisemono) and completed another five series we were already doing at the time (Himegoto, Josou Shounen, Sweet Magic Syndrome, Kenjutsu Komachi, and Usotsuki Lily, plus an assortment of series from Waai/Mahalo). In fact, of the series we are currently still doing, only two of our major projects that we were doing at the time still have yet to be completed (Kuragehime and Bokura no Hentai).

So Shounen Oujo is as much a part of our past as it is our present and future whenever a new volume comes up, as one did last month. In the end, we are very pleased to say something we have been dying to say for over two years now: Shounen Oujo chapter 20 is finished at the start of volume 4. In the chapter, there is a change in the spelling of a previously minor character's name, originally rendered as Shellvon, but this has been changed to Shelwon. Other than that, everything else is the same, including the massive amount of love we pour into this series to make reading it as enjoyable, and as close to it's original ambiance, as possible. So please enjoy as we once again work on this incredible series.

And as one more additional piece of news, Shounen Oujo is reportedly getting a two-volume drama CD series next year with Natsuki Hanae as Albert, Takahiro Sakurai as Guy, Takuma Terashima as Theodore, and Daisuke Hirakawa as Olivier. Based on these characters, and the fact that Alexia is not present, we can assume it's essentially going to adapt scenes from volume 2, and maybe also volume 3, but we'll have to wait and see.

Next up, the start of Bokura no Hentai v09.

A Voice is a Terrible Thing to Waste!

It took a lot of work getting this out, but we're finally able to present chapter 1 of Norio Tsukudani's new series Heroine Voice! The first chapter is a massive 65 pages long and contains a few color pages at the beginning, in addition to being on the cover of Comic Rex. The story is as follows:

Ever since she was in fifth grade, Otome Yamada has longed to be a heroine in a play. This led her to join the drama club upon entering high school, but because of her unusual, anime-sounding voice, she has only ever been a stagehand. Undeterred, she tries to go to an audition for a play, but accidentally ends up at a recording studio for an anime series. Although she gets thrown out after unknowingly getting in the way of the recording, a talent agent impressed by her performance offers her a job as a voice actress. Spurred on by her dream, she eventually accepts the offer, leading her to be in a voice actress unit with the popular Suzu Ayase.

Just so you know, this is not gender bender related whatsoever. The second chapter, which has already been revealed to be 58 pages long, will come out at the end of the month, so we'll be working on it monthly as we did with Himegoto before. Also, a big thanks goes to NJMANGA of Deus Ex Scans for continuing to provide us the raws as he did with Himegoto.

Next up, the latest Yuri na Watashi chapter before finally diving into Shounen Oujo and Bokura no Hentai.

Remember to Follow Your Heart...and Your Stomach!

Finally, after a week of toiling away, we're done with the last bit of Full Dozer. The bonus content consists of three small chapters revolving around Nina, which also offers a bit of an epilogue to the story, and there's also a few pages of Ayumi Komura's afterword.

In the end, this series probably didn't have everything we were hoping it would have after having done Usolily, but Ayumi Komura is still a very unique author, and Full Dozer was a short but sweet series we enjoyed working on over the past year, in which had quite a few of our series end. This also marks the first time we've completed three series by a single author. We look forward to continuing to work on Mori no Takuma-san when the first volume comes out early next year (chapter 4 is about to be published in Margaret in a few days).

But for now, our next release will be chapter 1 of Norio Tsukudani's new series Heroine Voice, but it is a very long chapter, so it'll take a little while for it to get it out, but please look forward to it.
