I'm in the process of bringing all my series back to life, which includes "The Skinny Girl and the Chubby boy"! Just need to talk with Mayumi-sensei about how to proceed with it :)
May I ask what happened to The Skinny Girl and the Chubby Boy?
I understand what you mean, believe me, I want nothing more than to be able to continue translating the series.

Do you know if they have any plans to properly translate it

I can't say, and neither can the artist really, as that would be up to the publisher unfortunately...
@TheElusiveTaco This is really tough because I really want to know how the story continues but I don't want to make the creator angry. Do you know if they have any plans to properly translate it or not cause if they have even the slightest plan to then I can walk away from it and wait, but a lot of good series never get translated and that hurts. For now I'm going to step away from the idea and think on it.
The Faceless Girl was serialized in Japanese, and as a result I was not able to continue the translations by request of the artist :(

As such, I would ask that you respect the wishes of the artist, but I cannot stop you either โ”(´ใƒผ๏ฝ€)โ”Œ
@TheElusiveTaco I was wondering why you seemed to drop the series "The Faceless Girl". I've recently gotten into translating and remembered this series was only translated to part 5 with a lot left untranslated, so I was going to use it as practice. Can you let me know if you have official dropped it or not, I don't want to take something that someone else is already doing even if its been on hold for too long.
Response to your question: "The Skinny Girl and the Chubby Boy" displayed okay, though they took a while to load. "Pseudo Harem" occasionally looks screentoned too. It's more noticeable when there's a lot of black on the page. Happens in mangas you didn't translate such as Kaguya-sama and Dusk Maiden of Amnesia.

I'll just chalk it up to an old phone not handling the resolution of Tanaka-san well.

Sakamocchan will continue! I just recently got more files from the artist after a busy period (^_^;)
Sorry for the late response, I don't check these comments super often!

And I'm sorry to hear that you're having issues with the pages from Tanaka-san ๐Ÿ˜…
The way those pages is saved isn't any different from other releases, so I can only imagine that it has to do with the resolution of the pages...
I used to get HQ raws from the artist for that series, and the ones I get from Pixiv are still pretty large, but the overall file size is never usually too high.
Can you see if you get the same issue with chapters from this series: as those have pretty large pages too.
First, I love your releases and work. Lately I've been enjoying My Classmate Tanaka-san is Super Scary.

I just want to say that it's REALLY hard to read on my phone or Kindle. I have to zoom in a lot or the images have this screentone all over them. Something with the format or type of image file? I don't know, but it's really annoying and takes a while to load. (Loads in a grid fashion)

I checked the Kirei Cake upload of chapter 2, and the image looks fine on phone and Kindle.

I'll check your other releases too, but bingeing Tanaka-san has been hard.

EDIT: Your other releases don't have this issue.

Thanks for translating manga until now, the manga I like the most that you translate is Pseudo Harem, btw are you still translate Sakamocchan, the private tutor for shy kids ?
Thank you for translating the manga. Do you mind if I ask that are you still translating the series My Classmate Tanaka-san is Super Scary?
Thank you
Just another lurker saying thanks for what you do. I've read probably 80% of what you've translated. Congrats on the official translation.
Thanks alot for your work
Thank you for your kind words ๐Ÿ˜Š
Nothing makes me happier than hearing that you've found joy in multiple series I translate!

As for the grammar, if you're ever in my Discord server, you can forward your thanks to Reversinator! He's the reason that my words read all good like ๐Ÿ˜‰
Folks at theElusiveTaco: Thanks for picking out some great manga to scanlate. I liked Nora to Zassou so much that I checked your page to find out your other titles, and fell in love with The Skinny Girl and the Chubby Boy. You really pick them well. (Also, the icing on the cake is your great grammar in the translations. That isn't a must, but, as the son of an English teacher, it makes the reading experience all that more pleasant.)
Yes, there's a new part coming soon! However, updating that relies on having new parts to do, and they're not happening as often recently because Fukuchi-sensei is busy with their weekly serialization.
But I love their short manga like Yoshioka-san, so now that I'm getting back in the swing of things I'm hoping to get more of those done ๐Ÿ˜€
Hi, thanks for your hard work! Are you planning to update yoshioka-san? Just recently found it and I'm loving it
love what you do fella
@kris hey thanks for the reply back I appreciate the response! Yeah, just wanted to know its current status. Glad theres some update info atleast! Good luck man
It's on hold until I can get someone (ideally with experience since each chapter is rather long) to clean/redraw and typeset it.
Being a novel adaptation, it also takes significantly longer to translate it compared to most of the other things I do, due to more difficult words and grammar (as well as myself not being at that level).

If Toruneko draws more, then yes!
hello are u gonna continue rinjin elf ?
Is Chocolate confusion gonna have future translations anytime soon or is it dropped?
Dudee thanks dudeee
thank you for your work on Getsuyoubi wa 2-gen kara, I hope you can continue it
Seconding eli's comment: Thank you for working on a manga that would attract few readers (although perhaps the most discerning and empathetic ones out there). Those who prey on society's most helpless are, in my opinion, completely beyond the pale. This manga brings the horror and sociopathic scum that these outcast girls (usually through no fault of their own) have to face. As a vice squad policeman (a real "serve and protect" kind of policeman; not a commode spy) once told me, "After seeing what these bastards do to defenceless kids, I have to believe in Hell, or I wouldn't be able to sleep at night."
Thanks for your work on Nora to Zassou!
