L-size Little sister 00

Courtesy of ChocoMage, here's the oneshot chapter of L-size Little Sister, which predated the actual serialization by half a year or so.

All I have left of this series are chapters 10 and 11, so that just leaves probing the depths of Share in order to get more...

...except that I can't use that program for shit. >_<

So Zenigame asks any brave, yuri-loving soul, who would be kind enough to plumb the depth of the Japanese P2P world in order to help me out... yadda yadda.

...anyways, this chapter here is pretty damned funny, and it does manage to stand on its own... so here you go. Mediafire link to come in a bit.

PURE Marionation 3


...anyways, here's the third chapter of PURE Marionation, in which we learn that nobody is immune to Anon's innocent charm.

I just went through the whole series a few days ago and ended up enjoying it a lot more than I did the first time around... so I hope you guys like it too.

Innocent fluff is a nice diversion from the usual ero and angst, I think.

Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina 5

ShiroAka delivers once again.

This is chapter 5, which happens to be one of my favorites... it probably isn't a coincidence that Aporo is less stupid than usual here. >_>;;

Two more left after this one... I'm kind of sad to know there isn't much left, but I'm kind of happy to think that I'll have actually finished a series.

...but enough from me, here's the chapter.

PURE Marionation 2

Here's the second chapter of PURE Marionation, in which we get some story other than "Anon wants to make lots of friends." I wouldn't have complained if it had just gone the route it seemed to be taking from the first chapter, so this is just a bonus for me. o/

As usual, editing credit goes to sylfid.

And now some random announcements... the fellows over at Vagrant Scans have offered to edit Hakaima Sadamitsu, Majimoji Rurumo, Koikoi Seitokai and Hekikai no Aion for me. So yeah, there's four more series to look forward to in the immediate future. o/

And to those who liked Kampfer, Xiphias has someone scanning the first tankoubon for that one in right now so I'll be translating more of it soonish.

And the folks at Sugooi swear that Epitaph 4 will be done tomorrow, so there's something else to look forward to.

Yamanko! 1

Here's another series I'm doing as a joint with SCX-Scans.

To be honest, I have no idea where it could be going, but I thought it was interesting enough... also, the last page of the chapter gives me hope.

Anyways, hope you like it.

PURE Marionation 1

It's funny... I've been sitting on the script for this one since November, and then sylfid offers to do it and winds up finishing it within a few hours of me sending the script.

I might be feeling like crap right now, but it's a good thing that my editors aren't...

So yeah, yay for being fast. o/

PURE Marionation's a series by Takagi Nobuyuki, so that means yuri. It's kind of slow in the progression, but the ending's about as yuri as it gets. So yeah, there's something for you all to look forward to.

Sugar wa Otoshigoro 2

Here's the second chapter of Sugar wa Otoshigoro, in which we're properly introduced to Asami. She's a rather interesting character, and a nice contrast to the half-retarded Keiko.

Many thanks to sylfid for the superfast editing. (less than two days~ o/ )

Mediafire Megaupload

As for me, I'm going to go resume coughing my lungs out. As such, there might be a delay on some series. (more than the usual, anyways.)

Sugar wa Otoshigoro 1

And now, the first chapter of what's probably one of my favorite series out of the stuff I've translated.

Dunno if you all will like it, but a Zenigame can hope...

The editing is courtesy of sylfid, who is almost as fast as ShiroAka. Almost.

Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina 4

ShiroAka delivers once again, here's chapter four of Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina.

I would have killed Aporo by now, seriously...

Deus Ex Machina 5

I'm back... and so, here's another chapter of Deus Ex Machina.

No action this time around, but Crow Mother more than makes up for that. o/

More prospective series...

...well, I'm heading off to DC in a few hours for the inauguration, and won't be back until Wednesday night... would the perfect time to post a new chapter of something so I could bask in the glow of new comments when I got back, but Rune Factory 2's been devouring my soul for the past two weeks or so.

As such, no can do... barring some miracle.

Anywho, a new crop of mangathings has grown in number enough to warrant me posting here... so here it is. If anyone out there feels like editing for me, that would be all kinds of awesome. Either post a comment here, or email me at horobinomichi at gmail dot com.

...and my editor for Fairial Garden seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth, so I'll be needing help with that again. ._.;;

And now, manga introductions...

Shokushu Hime

The kingdom of Sergei has a problem... the creatures of darkness known as Phantom Beasts have been appearing with increasing regularity, and attacking the populace... Allemande, the Second Princess of the kingdom, has been tasked with keeping the peace. In addition to her impressive skill with the sword, she's she can also use her talking teddybear partner Maro to summon her own Phantom Beasts when things get too rough...

...well, Phantom Beast tentacles. They might be ugly, but they get the job done.

Despite the suggestive title, this manga is actually pretty clean... aside from the occasional fanservicey clothes-ripping from attacks or whatnots. Nothing too serious, and the story is more humorous than serious.

Currently have the first chapter translated. (been up there for a while, actually...)

Volume 1 raw

Sugar wa Otoshigoro

Hatanaka Keiko's an odd girl with odd aspirations(I mean, REALLY weird), but she tries her best to fit in with the other girls in her class... she still sucks at it, though.

One day, she meets Asami, a girl who's even more of an outcast than she is... but unlike Keiko, Asami's own "outsider" status doesn't seem to bother her in the slightest.

As they grow closer, what's going to happen to Keiko's standing among the other girls? And what about Asami's own issues?

I REALLY like this series, and have been wanting to do it for quite some time now... there's a very strong yuri thing going into the series as Keiko and Asami's relationship progresses, but I honestly have no idea how it'll wind up in the end... Just a warning there.

But the first two volumes managed to get a 4/5 yuri rating on Yuri na Hibi, so one can hope...

Currently have the first chapter translated.

Raw chapters:
1 2 3 4 5

Alice no Shousei

Codenamed Alice, she's an expert assassin...

...well, a trainee assassin. But she's still highly-skilled with various forms of firearms, and she gets the job done...

...this is more goofy fluff than anything, but it's FUNNY fluff. I like it, and I'm not even really all that into guns. o/

First volume raw

Hekikai no Aion

Tsugawa Tatsuya just lost his parents in an accident... but he's trying not to let that keep him too down as he starts highschool.

While trying to obey his father's final wish for him to become an upstanding man, he ends up helping a girl who was being bullied. Despite her exceedingly cold nature, he just can't leave her alone... which may not necessarily be to his benefit, as he ends up getting wrapped up in a world where things like parasitic mind-controlling bugs exist...

I read the first volume last night, and it's quite good... the art's pretty, and the story's fairly engrossing. Also, Seine is too damned cute...

First volume raw

Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina 3

And here's a summer-themed chapter of Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina.

Naturally, that means swimsuits.

...and Aporo being dangerously stupid.

Once again, thanks to ShiroAka for editing.

Mediafire Megaupload

...and back to Rune Factory 2 for me... as such, further translation might be kind of delayed. >_>;;

Deus Ex Machina 4

...and after quite a while, here's the fourth chapter of Deus Ex Machina.

In which we find out that Gestrotor is not a Dom, but rather a Gelgoog.

Oh, and that kid's still there too.

Thanks go to Browserboy23, who was kind enough to clean the raws for me.

Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina 2

A return to the moemoe festival... here's chapter two of Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina.

Aporo's cute and all, but she's really dumb... I guess her tactic is to wear Chiroru down. ^_^;;


Mondlicht 3 should be done early next week, and Epitaph 4 will be done any day now... I hope.

And I'll probably be putting up some more tentative projects that I'd need editors for within the next few days or so... so there's a heads-up to anyone who might want to help me out.

Mondlicht 2

...and after way too long, here's the second chapter of Mondlicht.

With any luck, the third chapter will be done sooner rather than later. >_>;;


Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina 2 and Epitaph 4 should be finished within the next few days... but I have no idea when anything else will be. :/

Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina 1

Happy New Year and all that... hope it's been a good holiday season for you all.

...anyways, here's my first release of the year, chapter one of "Yume Mitaina Hoshi Mitaina," by Araki Kanao. It's a really cute series, and I liked it quite a bit...

Many thanks to ShiroAka for editing, and Erin for bringing the series to my attention.
