Description
Alright, I'm freaking lazy. If anyone could volunteer to clean Skip and Loafer vol. 3 and Oishii Kaori, I'd super appreciate it.

Announcing a new series, Oishii Kaori.

https://mangadex.org/title/45173/oishii-kaori/chapters/

I'm going to stick to tankobon releases from now on. That's how I started and how I wanted to do, but I've drifted away from it somewhat with certain titles I enjoyed personally. My Japanese isn't so good that I can read it on the fly and comprehend all of it, so the ones I really enjoy, I have to translate it word for word to truly enjoy it. And if I'm going to do that, then might as well scanlate it so others can enjoy it. Still, I decided to stick to tank releases for a reason, and I'm going to return to that... Non-tank titles should still see releases, but slower now until the volume releases catch up with it, if that makes sense.

I don't feel like it's my place to put any restrictions on how people should enjoy my contributions but I am going to draw one line: self prints. Some people are paying to have scanlated manga printed and bound like tankoubons and I strongly feel that if you have the money to do that, buy a legitimate copy first. I know people are resistant to buying manga in the language they cannot understand, but it's not like they don't have ways to follow it, like my shitty translation for example. Seriously, if you have the money to spend on something like that. buy a legitimate copy first and give the creator his due.

I used to make my cleaned files available for others but due to some abuse, I'm going to have to put a stop to that practice.

Suck it, Michigan State. Again.

Thanks for your kind word. Maybe one day I'll go back and work on that. One issue I had was the digital source was pretty poor, even the one I purchased. Maybe I'll run them through waifu2x and see...

I just realized that you did a chapter of Kyoukasho ni Nai! Man, I would love you forever if you'd finish that series. I've been waiting on an update since my mangafox days.

Thank you for translating My Broken Mariko!

Thank you so much for translating My Broken Mariko so far. Even though it hurts me to read it, it means the world to me. Dredged up all kinds of conflicting feelings from the past that I didn't realize I had let go. I know this sounds bad, but I don't know how to explain it. I shouldn't let my lost loved ones go so easily.

I wish you were on discord so I could thank you personally for all of your hard work. Guess this'll have to do! I haven't been reading any of the new SL chapters because I like your TLs enough that I'd rather wait until you clear the backlog. I look forward to it!

Also, booooo Michigan! Go UK! (I'm a Wildcats fan. =p )

Just got the raw. Its publication is irregular, supposed to be bimonthly but goes past that at times. I'm kind of backlogged a bit and it's like #3 right now behind the new Skip to Loafer and Okashiratsuki. So... Maybe a week? Or 2?

Any word on Shougakusei ga Mama demo Iidesuka? Are you waiting on the next volume to come out?

Thanks for translating skip to loafer! I quite enjoy your end translator notes too! :) It's nice to see a fellow Adachi Mitsuru reader too

I'm really enjoying "Sensei, Kurokami ni Natte mo Kidzuite Kureru?" a lot more than I was expecting to. Thanks for sharing that gem.

Thank you for the information on Skip to Loafer vol 2. It is one of my most favorite mangas atm and I’ve reread old chapters many times.

Now Im looking forward to the new scanlated ones ^^ thanks again

Bless you and thank you for Okashiratsuki!

Hi, I've read Kecchin and as a former rider, I am very interested. But the prospect of a very long series is pretty daunting. At this point, I'd be more interested in helping finishing Sekitou Elergy than starting a new one.

Thanks for High Position. I enjoy it so far. Are you interested in his other series?

In obsessed with Sukkipu to Rofa so thank you for working on it. I've already re-read the two chapters you've put up a couple times. Just really drawn to the characters, scenario, and the art style. Looking forward to more!!!

Hi, thanks for the suggestion. A Sahara manga is always worth a look. I'm rushing to close some of the active projects so it's a possibility if i like it.
Avatar
I've read some of the manga you scanlated (I don't know why but I enjoy reading your afterwords a lot) and I was wondering if maybe you would think of doing 'Kami-sama no Joker' from Sahara.
Anyways, thanks for Super Cub and Okashiratsuki, much love! :3

I just read what you've done on Super Cub and I highly enjoyed it. I've never road a 2 wheeled vehicle, but as a pretty solitary female adult I could really connect with this series in conjunction with something like the cars I've owned and where I've taken them. If you ever need help with typesetting or redrawing I would be glad to extend my hand.

You are doing a decent job with this manga, and I was interested in it so I bought the entire series. I might do a retranslation of it for my own enjoyment...using your translation as a blueprint. I am currently trying to figure out Ookumo-Chan Flashback Vol 1...It is a funny weird and interesting, but the original team did a poor job..leaving out tons of cultural references and dumbing down the text. Hell, most of the scantalations here are dumbed down...But, yours looks like you showed some interest and used cultural references a lot. And it is very readable, so I assume your creativity in translating is very good, since Japanese to English requires a ton of it..seriously. Thank you for your translations, great job overall.

i really love your work on high position. thank you for choosing this series ?. i'm looking forward for continuation ?
P.S: you are funny old guy ?. sometimes i laughing when i see your TL note and afterwords ?
Avatar
Yeah, that freaking Panasonic and their $80 LD with a 30 minute episode of Tenchi Muyo... I don't miss that...
Avatar
Just reading some High Position and love the end notes. You were a bit ahead of me, my friend had the KOR laser discs and got me into anime with them (Tenchi helped also). I got the KOR DVD release they did later though :) I am looking forward to trying the other series you have worked on.
Avatar
Hey. Like what you did with this page. Also thanks for releasing High Position. Great afterwords too.. Was beginning to think it wouldn't get picked up.

Thank you for picking up rakujitsu no pathos! Also like the look of your other series. Followed and liked :)

Also roll tide all the way, baby
