Nanatsuiro Drops 2

...and now for some moe...

Here's the second chapter of Nanatsuiro Drops, in which things take a turn for the... different.

Mediafire Megaupload

...and as for me, I'm going to resume banging my head against my desk and cursing the heavens that I was ever foolish and impatient enough to check the 2ch thread about Sugar wa Otoshigoro.

Spoilers just make the wait for the next chapter even more painful... AAGH.

Speaking of which, chapter 7 should be done around the middle of next week.


Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi 7

...another day, another release...

...anywho, here's the latest chapter of Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi. With this, I'm all caught up until the next one comes out on the tenth.

I have to say, Sagae is growing on me...

Shokushu Hime 5

...and here's an actiony chapter of Shokushu Hime.

I have to say, I really don't like Pavane. Yeah.

...anyways, just one more chapter and the omake pages to go, and the first volume will be done. o/

Transistor Teaset 3

...and to top it all off, here's some more Transistor Teaset.

And it's a Sairi-focused chapter, to boot. o/

...yes, she is most definitely my favorite.

Nanatsuiro Drops 1

...first was angst, then erofoolishness, and now for something sweet and adorable and all that fun stuff.

Here's the first chapter of Nanatsuiro Drops, a joint with the folks over at Meow Scans.

I actually bought the LE version of the PS2 game back in the day(for the Sumomo figure, of course), but I've yet to actually play past the prologue... maybe translating this will give me some incentive to actually finish it.

Maybe. >_>;;

Seigi Kenkyuukai Serenade 1

...and here's something a bit lighthearted...

Courtesy of editor-type person Ciel, here's the first chapter of Seigi Kenkyuukai Serenade.

I like tokusatsu and I like yuri, so this one was a no-brainer... eheh.

...though I have noticed that the raws I have for this series are kind of really crappy... so it'd probably be better that I get someone to clean them before I start on the next chapter.

So yeah, cleaner wanted for this series. Post a comment or email me at horobinomichi at gmail dot com, blahblahblah.

EDIT: Never mind, it's been taken care of. o/

Sugar wa Otoshigoro 6

...and here's another chapter of Sugar wa Otoshigoro, finishing off the first volume.

...this one's full of angst and unpleasantness and the like, so just a warning there.

Ah, Asami...

Mediafire Megaupload

...and now for the heavily delayed results of the second stupid poll thing...

...62%(274 votes) of you prefer a few series that are released faster. Pretty much what I expected...

...30%(133 votes) of you don't really care as long as you have something to read.

...and 7%(32 votes) prefer lots of series that are released more slowly.


...well, this poll doesn't really apply to Horobi no Michi because of the way I do things here, I was just curious. ^_^;;

Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi 6

Just one more until I'm caught up... guess I'll have to find something else to do at that point.

Shiharu Genesis 2

...and so, I tear myself away from Swordcraft Story long enough to post this...

...anyways, here's the second chapter of Shiharu Genesis.

I have to say, the sheer amount of text in this series, along with my having to look up Bible verses in Japanese to make sure I'm getting this stuff right, puts this series right behind Sugar wa Otoshigoro in terms of translating difficulty...

...but being able to go through Marcho's insane rants more than makes up for that, for he is awesome. Bwaha.

And a random note, Shiharu's family name of "Fudou" is a reference to Fudou Akira, who is more widely known as Devilman.

Shokushu Hime 4

...and here's another chapter of Shokushu Hime, which introduces one of the series's running gags.

...and in other news, I'm looking for a new editor for Karakasa no Saien, seeing how as I translated chapter 2 waay back in November and this crap is really getting out of hand. -_-;;

Post a reply or email me at horobinomichi at gmail dot com or whatever if you're interested.

Transistor Teaset 1

...and so, we begin yet another new series...'s the first chapter of Transistor Teaset, a series that is... well, odd. The full extent isn't shown until the second chapter, though... eheh.

As always, super thank you points go to Sylfid for helping out. o/

Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi 4

Slightly delayed, but here it is...

To be honest, I like Tachibana better as she is now...

Mediafire Megaupload

Wednesday, March 18, 2009

...holy crap, you guys. I was checking the user stats like how I usually do when I'm bored...

...and it turns out that Tuesday got the most hits ever, with a total of 6,269. Like, holy crap.

To put this in perspective, the old max leveled out at somewhere around 4700 hits.

So yeah, thanks a ton to everyone who's made this blog as popular as it is. I'm still shocked by it, to be completely honest.

Anywho, more yuri is on the horizon, even if I have to buy the volumes and scan them in myself.

...speaking of which, raws for Transistor Teaset have popped up online, and so I'm looking for someone who would be willing to edit it for me.

To use a description that isn't mine since I'm lazy...

"From the Animeraider:

When they were young, Suzu and Midori were separated as Midori moved away. Suzu grew up and has become a builder of robots and anything else mechanical she can get her hands on. One fateful morning her favorite electronics shop is closed so she goes off to relax while waiting for the shop to open when Midori calls again, after all these years, wanting to take up where they left off. Suzu is ecstatic about this – they had so much in common when they were young…

Only Midori has opened up a Maid Café…"

raw volume one

It's cute, and funny, and has scenes like this which may fill up the yuri void some.

Onsen Wakusei 1

On to new things...'s the first chapter of Takagi Nobuyuki's latest manga, Onsen Wakusei. It kind of reminds me of Kokoro Toshokan, except there's far less moe.

Here's hoping that changes in later chapters. o/


Epitaph 6

...and finally, here's the sixth chapter of Epitaph.

With any luck, Shouoto will start the series back up soon, but who knows. :<

Stupid cliffhangers...

Shiharu Genesis 1

Just moving on along...'s the first chapter of Shiharu Genesis, the story of a little girl who is prophesied to bring about the End of Days. Bwahaha.

Anyways, it's cute and fun and whatnots. Many thanks to Serafer for the speedy editing job.

When I think about it, that's kind of a fitting name for someone working on this series...

...and I'm Maou Zenigame, too... eheh. >_>;;

Mediafire Megaupload

...and in other news, the first stupid weekly poll thing's results are in... you can all thank a certain someone from a certain place for suggesting that I put up a poll to see who everyone's favorite character was.

For you see, Zenigame's eyes are everywhere. Bwahaha.

Anywho, Creo won it by a huge margin, with 205 votes. I guess that last chapter made people like her more or something... eh.

In second place was Kiki, with 70 votes. I am saddened that more people didn't recognize her inherent awesomeness. :<

Third was Suou, with 65 votes. I'm pretty surprised at this, but whatever.

Fourth was Akane, who got 51 votes. She's another one who got to show off recently, though I'm surprised that she didn't beat Suou...

Fifth was Urara, with 13 votes. Guess the sight of her derriere wasn't enough to win more votes...

Tied in fifth were Gemini and Cindy-sensei, who both got 8 votes. To be honest, I was rooting for Cindy to get more, but I suppose his bad luck strikes again.

Sixth was Ridda, who I thought was awesome... with 4 votes. I guess she'll need more screentime to win others over. :/

...and last is Urara's mother, who somehow managed to get 3 votes. Zenigame wa SHOCK.

Another stupid weekly poll to come when I wake up, as I am about to pass out at the time of this post.

Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi 3

Renzoku releases...'s the third chapter of Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi, in which Tachibana proves that she's... something else.

...while I'm happy that my monthly output seems to be more than a lot of groups put out in a year, it's also kind of GRAAH-inducing that my various editors seem to like to finish with chapters at the same time. >_<

I have like six series that I need to translate for at once...

...but it's not really something to be complaining about, I'm just happy that I have so much help.

Thanks, everybody. o/

Asobi ni Iku yo! 1

...and here's a new manga... much to my surprise, it's another joint with SCX.

They keeps me in the dark, you see...

...anywho, it's a dumb little fun series about aliens and catgirls and people being insane. From what I've read of it so far, it's pretty much just goofy fluff with pretty artwork.

But stuff like that is nice every once in a while, so...

...anyways, check it out.

Here's the second chapter of Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi, which clears up the specifics of Tachibana's situation... the whole thing really is a shame. :/

...this one should have been up hours ago, but the damned thing kept screwing up every time I tried to upload it. >_<

As such, only the megaupload link for now. I'm going to have a freaking aneurysm if I get another "your upload timed out" message. -_-;;

Here's the third chapter of Shokushu Hime. This one introduces a new character, who is an... interesting contrast to Allemande.

Mediafire Megaupload

Monday, March 9, 2009 the meantime...

Seems to be a slight drought as far as releases go... oh well, I might as well take the time to make another "Zenigame needs your help!" post.

Editors wanted:

Just two this time... and I've translated the first chapter of each of these. Just need an editortype to help out...

Seigi Kenkyuukai Serenade, by Yokoyama Naoki:

In response to signs of an impending invasion by alien conquerors, five young people have undergone modification surgery in order to gain the strength to fight them off when they arrive...

...but there's been no sign of them since the initial warning message ten years ago.

So in the meantime, the hero of justice Serena and her teammate/lackey/punching bag Souya have been using their powers to protect the weak and destroy evil wherever it looms its head...

...and when they're not doing that, Serena's trying to pick up chicks. And Souya's fiddling arond with his anime figures.

But with the sudden return of their childhood friend, things are in for a change...

...or maybe not.

Kano loves Serena, Hakase loves Serena and Kano, Serena loves all women... and Souya likes to watch. Yeah, this is action comedy manga, with heavy yuri overtones. I find it hilarious, but I'm also a huge toku fan, so...

Raw volume 1

Shiharu Genesis, by Kondoh Rururu:

Long ago, the cherubim Lucifer turned his back to God and waged war with His angels...

...but in the end, he was slain and his army scattered to the winds.

Six thousand years later, Lucifer has been reincarnated in the body of a young child... and it's only a matter of time before those memories of the past war awaken and the world is once again thrown into chaos.

Anticipating this, a single angel was sent down to prevent the resurrection before Lucifer's minions find their leader...

...thing is, Lucifer reincarnated as a sweet, ditzy little girl, who wouldn't hurt a fly.

This one's a goofy comedy with the occasion action scene. It's more cute than anything, and I like it a lot.

Raw volume 1

Raw Hunting:

In browsing various places, several series have caught my eye... but since I have no idea how to work Share, I needs help to grab scans if they exist.

I've provided links to hash info if I've been able to find it, along with Mangaupdates and Amazon pages.

Onsen Wakusei, by Takagi Nobuyuki-

This is Takagi Nobuyuki's new monthly serialization, now that Magie Paire is over.

The description on Manga Time Kirara Forward's site says that it's about a group of sisters who manage an onsen... but I can't find any pictures or anything else concerning it.

Anywho, I happen to be a fan of his, and I'll be sure to translate it if someone gets me the raws.

hash info

Recht, by Teramoto Kaoru-

No idea what it's about but it's pretty and yuri, so...

amazon mangaupdates

Kururi no Hitotose, by Higuchi Akihiko-

Another one that I've seen listed on yuri sites that looks interesting...

amazon mangaupdates

Haitatsu Akazukin, by Kuze Banko and Ohsaki Kozue-

Yet another title that I've seen on yuri sites... I've heard that it was really good.

amazon mangaupdates

Butterfly Kiss, by Shinonome Tarou-

It's a new release, and all the yuri blogs are eating it up... art's quite nice as well.

amazon mangaupdates

Snow White~ kimi ni mau yuki, by Umekawa Kazumi-

Umekawa's better known for Gau Gau Wata, but apparently, she does yuri as well.

Not that I'm complaining.

Anyways, it's cute as hell.

hash info (last chapter) mangaupdates

Mahou Shoujo Isuzu-san Full Throttle, by Arata Toshihira-

I have no idea what it's about, but it's adorable as hell, and I'd want to translate it even if it wasn't posted all over the blogs I check.

Those of you who are Touhou fans might recognize Arata's work on the Inaba manga.

amazon mangaupdates

Iinari!! Kyuuketsuki, by Kusakabe Rei-

Kusakabe Rei also does a series called Nephylym, which I rather like (two volumes published in English)... and this one is said to have the ever-sought after yuri, which is just an added bonus.

Also, Zenigame likes vampire girls and gosurori.

A lot.

Way too much.

But that's another matter altogether...

Watashi no Taisetsu na Tomodachi 1

...and here's something new, a series by Hakamada Mera.

As with most of her series, the main character's kind of out of it... it's still fun, though. This one's a monthly manga that runs in Web Comic High!, so there shouldn't be any AGHLONG waits between chapters like there are with most of the series I do.

...but I lack proper raws past the first chapter, so if some kind person could grab them off of Share or acquire them through some other method for me, that would be Super Appreciated.

The requisite onsen chapter!

This one opens with fanservice, but also manages to cram in quite a bit of plot in there as well... but then again, it's forty freaking pages. >_<

I guess Takagi was making up for the previous one's shortness...

Anywho, many thanks to sylfid for hanging in there with this one... it was brain-breaking for me to translate, so I can only imagine how annoying the editing must have been.
