You Are What You Brew!

It's finally time to start Moyashimon volume 8 with chapters 87, 88 and 89. Even though there was a lot from the first 7 volumes that never made it into the anime (almost all of volume 3, for instance), scanlating volume 8 definitely has a different feel to it knowing that nothing beyond volume 7 was adapted. So although there may never be a third anime season, at least the manga will live on forever.

Microbes Never Lie!

Moyashimon volume 7 comes to an end with chapters 84, 85 and 86, which also has a little bonus content at the end. This marks the last bit of the manga that was adapted in the anime. Now on to volume 8.

The Microbe's in the Details!

Now we come to Moyashimon chapter 78, 79 and 80, marking the halfway point through volume 7. And what's more, this also marks the halfway point through the entire series, leaving just a scant 79 chapters left to go in Moyashimon. This is quite a big milestone to reach for a series like this which is quite long and incredibly wordy, but thankfully, it's all downhill from this point on. Speaking of wordy, chapter 78 was one of the wordiest chapters in recent memory, so if you love giant walls of text, then you'll love that chapter.

Wine Never Tasted So Sweet!

Now we come to the end of Moyashimon volume 6 with chapters 72 and 73, which also includes some bonus content at the end. Although this is the point where the anime's second season ended, some of volume 7 was also adapted at the beginning of the second season.

In addition to that, there's also another bonus chapter that never made it into volume 6. What happened during the serialization is that a small chapter to commemorate the first anime's premiere was released the same day the first episode aired and it was released as chapter 68, but it had nothing to do with the story, so it was later removed. This means that chapters 68-73 in volume 6 were originally numbered 69-74, which is why volume 7 begins with chapter 75 and not 74. So our release of chapter 74 is this missing bonus chapter that created the odd gap between volumes 6 and 7, and we were just lucky enough to find scans of it still online after nearly 10 years since it was released.

And so with that, there are now 7 volumes and 85 chapters left to go as we finally near the halfway point with volume 7 coming up next.

Love Will Find a Way!

Here's the end of the Nisekoi Boyfriend lovely volume, a one-shot titled Yowamushi Kareshi to Kuroi Neko, which is a sequel to the previous one-shot Yowamushi Kareshi to Rokudenashi from the first Nisekoi Boyfriend volume. Also included is a bonus manga featuring the same characters from Yowamushi Kareshi. We had a lot of fun coming back to Nisekoi Boyfriend after nearly 3 years, and we hope that maybe Ataru Yamamoto will get to draw more of it in the future.

And now for an update to our ongoing projects. The next most-recent volumes that will be coming out will be Kami-sama no Ekohiiki v02 in late September, followed shortly by Mizutama Honey Boy v07 in October (most likely), and Shiomi-chan v03 in November (most likely). After that, we expect the last volume of Kuragehime to be released before the end of the year, since it's ending later this month in Kiss, so probably sometime between October and December.

And then the uncertainty only grows for three of our other projects. Shounen Oujo has been on hiatus since June, and there is currently no expected date for the next released chapter. Since there will probably need to be at least another 2 or 3 chapters released before v06 comes out, it's probably unlikely it will come out this year, unfortunately. The other series on hiatus is LiLy, which hasn't posted a new chapter since March due to the author's maternity leave. However, since it's likely she already gave birth by now, that series will most likely start up again in the next few months, although that still means that v03 probably won't be out until around March or April next year.

There's also been somewhat of a shakeup for Shimanami Tasogare. Not only did it take a short break in Hibana earlier this year, but that magazine is also ceasing publication in the next issue to be released on August 7. Shimanami will probably continue in another magazine by Shogakukan, or at the very least, we still expect a third volume to come out eventually with the serialized chapters we haven't done so far, but if it takes a few months to release the next chapter in another magazine, that probably means that v03 won't be out until next year sometime. We just hope Yuuki Kamatani is able to continue it in some form.

But for now, we'll still be continuing Ookami Shounen and Seito Kaichou on a monthly basis, as well as finally restarting Moyashimon with v06 up next.
