@zprimal it's not really dropped it's just I've got less time due to my work, I've got a chapter in the work, greatly aided by tonik (he did the TL and part of the cleaning), but it's still not ready as it's still a lot of work, might come out in the next week

was this dropped? It says it's completed but there are definitely more than 42 chapters

Not a jazz person but this manga really hooked me up. Also, few people on the comments are some jazz persons themselves which makes me convinced that this manga is nearly jazz accurate.

Thanks TL!
Take your time and do it right... Whenever a chapter of this shows up I read it.
Your pace is perfect as long as you keep going!

This manga is one of the more wholesome and deep stories. This thing really does inspire, let's you really feel the power behind the meaning.

Thanks for the upload! Aaaaaah, I feel bad for Yukinori (but also a little happy he got put down). Strong Ping Pong vibes from the chapter.

God, this manga is awesome. I have been following it for about two months now, and while it's simple it just feels good. Thank you for your effort, mr. tradutor.

Gaaaaaawd, 12 chapters in and it is sooooo boring. Why did that get an award? Probably because it seems to be sophisticated and „arthouse“-pseudo-intellectual.
The characters are bland, there are exactly zero challenges for the MC, everyone supports him. Boring.
Only the artwork is good. Reminds me of Urasawa. But worse.
