Happy New Years!

Happy New Year's everyone!  I'm not sure if I'll be around on New Year's Day, so you get your celebratory gifts today instead!  First up, we've got a chapter from another Oto Nyan series for you, this one's called Ato no Matsuri (a festival themed chapter seems appropriate for NYE, right?).

Ato no Matsuri ch 1 DDL:

Next, some Winter Comiket (C79) coverage...  So far we've only got two trap/TG themed doujins. One's a Milky Holmes parody doujin, I didn't like it terribly much, but it's got plenty of sex so it's possibly worth checking out...  There's also a Kyonko doujin that I didn't care for the art in, but I thought it had a really interesting premise.

C79 Trap/TG doujin folder:

And finally, some non-manga stuff I've been sort of compiling for a while.  I dunno how many of you guys listen to J-Core type stuff, but I've been working on getting discogs put together for some of the artists/circles I like.  The first one up is TANO*C...  All it's missing at the moment is the 'Eternal Nanosecond' solo album that came out at C79 and hasn't been uploaded yet.  That'll go in the folder as soon as it appears.  Coming up next in this musical side project are SharpnelSound and Mob Squad Tokyo stuff.

WOW!, Arrows and Stuff!

That's right, it's Kaichu! chapter 5!  Not terribly much to report on, Oto Nyan stuff is progressing towards release, Mei no Naisho coming soon...  I'll also promise Reversible! ch 3 by next Friday, if Huffman Island blows his latest ETA (NYE), I'll just go ahead and do it myself and cut him out of the process.

WOW! Fucking Japanese Influenza!

So, the top image there is this month's Prunus Girl.  Seriously.  After waiting impatiently for GanGan Joker to make it through the snow delays and the xmas mail delays, that's our Prunus Girl for this month.  To make up for it, we've got chapter 0 of our new hentai manga series, Anal Angel.  This one's by the same guy that did Moho Love, but it's all/nearly all traps in it (I think there's one non-trap male character in it, all the rest are traps - no trap on female action).  Since there was a full tank's worth of raws floating around and I really like this guy's art (his dialogue tends to be kind of odd though, ass you'll see), I figured why the hell not.  Also, we're decensoring this one for you guys, so make sure to fap extra hard and think of us :3

Anal Angel ch 0 DDL:

WOW!, It Wasn't a Month Wait For OverDrive this Time!

Got some OverDrive for you guys this time...  I dunno, some parts of this chapter made me feel kind of bad, it's got a little bit of depressing flashback, but it ends on a mostly positive note though, so it's alright.  Prunus Girl raws are still being held up by snow on the east coast.  All I can say is to cross your fingers with us and keep hoping they show up tomorrow.  Porn coming very soon, more Change H and Oto Nyan stuff also coming very soon.  It's late, that's all the eloquence I've got.

OverDrive ch 42 DDL:

WOW!, Balance Policy's Caught Up!

So, here's the first series we picked up from the Change H quarterly.  It's called Balance Policy, and so far it's three chapters long, and ongoing (hopefully the next chapter will run in the Change H RED issue due out in about a month).  For your reading pleasure, we've got all three of them out tonight. I know, I need to get the projects page updated, it'll happen soon, and this'll show up over there as well.

Balance Policy Archive Folder:

Updates on other stuff - Prunus Girl raws got held up due to snow at our raw provider's place, hopefully we'll get scans tomorrow.  Over Drive 42 is in typesetting now, so expect it soon and wait warmly.

Merry Christmas, Part Two

Ok, so it's technically not quite Christmas any more, but just think of Koizumi as that drunk uncle who always staggers into the family gathering the day after Christmas with gifts, since despite being a bit of a screw up, he's a really nice guy.  I really liked this chapter, and I'm glad it's one of the Oto Nyan stories that looks to be on-going rather than just a one-shot.  Project page will get updated tomorrow, I'm tired.

Docchi ch 1 DDL:

We also know some guys with an outfit called [QRS], check out this release *after* you read Docchi ch 1 for best effect (I told you, Koiz is the drunk uncle...):

Merry Christmas!

Well, it's Christmas, and we've got a gift or two for you guys.  First up is our first Change H release, it's a neat little 4 page short, it's full color, and it's a little more serious/touching than a lot of the Change H stuff.  Change H tends to be lots of cock tease up front, and story second, but this one's kind of the opposite.  We've also got our first serial from Oto Nyan due to release today (man, this one pushes all my buttons just right), but I dunno when Koiz is going to be done with the typesetting, so look for it later as our second xmas gift to y'all.

WOW!, It's Mayo Elle Info At Last!

No, we don't have a date/release mode announcement or anything like that, but we've got the two short chapters of Mayo Elle from volumes 2 and 3 translated at last.  Just a warning, it starts in media res, doesn't explain shit, and possible gives us more questions about what the anime will be about than it answers.  That all said, it's a fun little read, and at least we know two characters that are for sure crossdressing boys...

Mayo Elle ch 1-2 DDL:

WOW!, Forget 4chan!

So, some people seemed to be curious about what was up with the bans.  We caught a NSFW ban for the dump (this chapter is SFW, the only thing even questionable is male nipples and groping which is concealed by clothing).  The warning came about when we remade the thread with an explanation in the OP that the chapter was SFW.  He sounded buttmad to me, idk.  The ban from irc came kind of unexpectedly, I was being pretty civil, and they didn't seem to like my assumption that the mod was new or didn't know how to enforce /a/'s rules consistently, apparently, and kickbanned me without any warning.  Shots of the ban and warning now added:

Alright, I don't like pointless posts, but I guess we ought to tell you about this.  We won't be distro'ing through 4chan's /a/ anymore.  We caught a ban, a warning, and a ban from the 4chan irc tonight, all for trying to post Mei no Naisho chapter 5.  We don't spend the time putting together releases to fight our way through that kind of shit, so any /a/nons, just make sure to follow the blog, subscribe to the RSS, or watch mangaupdates.  Oh well.

WOW!, I Dunno What to Say this Time~

Hokay.  So.  We've got the new Mei no Naisho, and we've also got some Cherry Girls raws...  The Cherry Girls stuff, we scanned the second volume, the first is public raws.  We'll be working on Cherry Girls in the near future, but I thought I'd share some deliciously high res scans with y'all, since the book was so damn pretty.  Mei no Naisho this time around was an amazing chapter, anyone who isn't reading this series yet should catch up just because of this chapter, seriously.

MnN ch 5 DDL:

Cherry Girls:

WOW!, Change H Raws Do Exist!

Alright, so being aware that Change H raws get hard to find at times, I did a couple things.  First I organized and reuploaded the first three volumes.  Then, when I scanned our copies of Green and Purple, I separated out the stuff we're going to work on, and uploaded the rest.  Two things to note on the Green and Purple raws.  First, the scans are untouched - they are in the same shape as if I were handing them to our cleaners, no cropping, no resize, no anything.  With all the scanning left to do, it didn't seem like a terribly valuable use of time, since I am absolutely stupid at image editing, even cropping can take me quite a while.  If someone ends up going through and sprucing them up and would be willing to let me swap out the ones in the share folder for something more reader-friendly, let me know.  The second thing is:  By posting these raws like this, I'm kind of hoping some of the stuff we don't end up translating gets picked up by some other group so that you guys get more content in total - However, these raws aren't quite public, if you do use them for a scanlation, please credit NJManga for the raws.

Change H Sharefolder:

Also, Mei no Naisho chapter 5 should be out tomorrow, barring any big incidents.  It's a really good chapter, I'm looking forward to getting it released.

Saturday, December 18, 2010

WOW! Who Expected This!?

Well, some people expressed interest in the parts of Waai other than the manga, so I scanned those parts like I did back when Oto Nyan came out.  The scans are fairly raw, I didn't do much other than crop them, but they're fairly high res, so do what you want with them.  Before anyone asks, no, we aren't going to do anything with the light novel that's being serialized in the end of the magazine (at least not in the foreseeable future.  These raws are courtesy of NJManga, our friendly local raw provider.  I'll add the folder to the projects page later, but for now here's the link:

(The volume three stuff is still uploading as I post this, but it should show up pretty soon.  Let me know if it doesn't.)

WOW!, What a Week!

Well, I know I told some people we'd probably have a release last night, but there were some hold ups...  Instead, to make up for it, tonight's a triple release!  With this chapter, Onnanoko Tokidoki Otokonoko is caught up to the Waai releases just like Sazanami, meaning it'll be a longish wait for the next chapter to come out.  Fudanshism isn't something we're likely to pick up permanently or anything, but someone happened to have produced a translation script, and asked us if we'd get it all cleaned up and ready to release, so there's chapter 12 of that for any fans (that series has terrible luck, I think we're the fourth group to put out a release on it, and some of the wait times have been pretty bad between chapters - sorry, but it still isn't terribly high on our list though).  Last but certainly not least, we've got Kaichu! chapter 4 for you guys.  If you couldn't tell, recruiting went pretty well, and we should be able to keep up a higher pace for the foreseeable future (probably not like this week, which is looking like it might hit 7 or 8 releases if things keep going the way they have been, but much quicker than we've been in the past).  We've got more Waai and Oto Nyan stuff in the works, and a Mei no Naisho chapter to come pretty soon as well (no promises on how quick, it's 42 pages so typesetting might take longer than usual).

WOW!, Check My Doubles!

Forgive the memetic title this time around, I'm uninspired and it's a double release night.  First up we've got something some people have probably been waiting a long time for, the third series from Waai that The Energy Trade scanlated one chapter of and then dropped, Onnanoko Tokidoki Otokonoko.  We've got chapter 2 for you tonight, chapter 3 should follow shortly.  The other release is Prunus Girl chapter 19, a little behind schedule this month, but all that means is that you get the next chapter sooner, right?  Not sure what order the rest of our projects will be coming out in, so I won't comment specifically, but expect lots of updates in the near future.

Also, the credits are missing NJManga as our raw provider - please make sure to think of them while you read all this stuff that we're releasing that doesn't exist in a public-raw form.

WOW!, It's a Lot of Talking About Bicycles

Alright, it's been a bit, but my promise that Over Drive was next in my queue holds true despite school bogging things down a bit.  This one was a pain in the ass since they kept talking about muscles, training, and shit that used pretty specific kanji, but it's good to see the team getting all fired up for their next race already!  (Not sure why the guy's digging in his pants like that on that page...)  Next up from me is Prunus Girl, it's about half way through TL at the moment, and then I'm going to dig into some Mei no Naisho.  We picked up some translation helpers, still feeling out how much that'll pick up our pace, but look forward to some extra shit coming out that I didn't quite have time to wedge in myself.

WOW! ZOMG it's Sazanami Cherry!!!

Our joint with Hachimitsu on chapter 2 AND 3 of Sazanami Cherry is now out.  I know a lot of folks were waiting on this one...  The only The Energy Trade series left to be sorted out is Tokidoki Onnanoko now, and don't worry, we're thinking about how we're going to get that one to you too!  Stop by Hachimitsu's blog:
Or grab them here:

The first chapter was done by The Energy Trade, if you haven't read it yet.  I'll add this one and Reversible to our projects page later on today, along with links to the previous chapters.

WOW!, It's a Lot of Porn!

Alright, a not-really-WOW!scans-related blog update for the first time in quite a while.  I've been working on piecing together a torrent of all known-to-be-scanned shota/trap anthology magazines for a while now, and it's finally done.  They're all shota anthologies, but I'd guess a little over half of them are focused on crossdressing, so I figured y'all might be interested.  I dunno, check it out or not, it's your prerogative.

WOW!, Something's Being Released After Our Unscheduled Hiatus!

Well, this one has been in the works for quite a while now, and I know people were getting antsy waiting for it.  Not much to say, I was too busy to corral people and figure out how to speed up the process, and it kind of fell through the cracks.  That's why you should all apply for positions with WOW! (see previous post for what we're looking for).  Also, our QC this time was by Koizumi's mother, seriously.

WOW!, Where the Hell is WOW!?

We aren't closing down...  We are going to head into recruitment, since apparently Yamada being busy cripples everything.  Here's what we're recruiting for:

You know, I'm much more concerned about your ability to meet deadlines than your technical skill for cleaner applicants.  We have two chapters that are more than two weeks overdue right now, and that just isn't cool.

Basically, distro people just have to be around when the chapters get finished and handle getting them listed on mangaupdates, dump them on the various sites we like informing of releases, and stuff like that.

Don't bullshit us on this one.  Either you're good enough to translate manga, or you aren't.  Some of our series do have furigana though, so if you think you're borderline, we can try starting you on those series.

At the moment, I end up being our only translator, our raw scanner, our distro, and our administrator.  Basically, next week we're going to have meetings to try and spread this stuff around a bit more so that me being busy doesn't necessarily mean no releases for you guys (particularly, we've got an administrator/coordinator to try and enforce deadlines when I'm not around).  Anyway, please feel free to apply, - don't expect to start straight into anything until after we have the meeting next week and get everything back on its rails though.  Sorry it's been so long guys.

WOW!, It's a Joint!

First of our joint projects is out, it's Past Future chapter 2, one of the Waai manga.  This is one of our joints with Hachimitsu-scans:  Not terribly much to say about it, since I just got home and haven't had a ton of time to think about what to post about it.


A healthy new look

Hi everyone, my name is Kano and I just finished reformatting the site into something easier to navigate, and hopefully more visually appealing to the eyes. Not only do I visit sites for independent artists very often, but I also happen to enjoy anime once in a while so I readjusted the layout to something I always found 'easy', so you can remember where everything is all the time. I'm not completely finished-- I have a feeling one or two things here and there can be done to make this easier, but unfortunately Blogspot limits my design a bit, so please bear with me. As far as navigating to find posts and news, I have limited the front page to 3 of the latest articles, due to the loading time and inconvenient page length that the 'show all' option gave. Please remember that the archives are located to the right of the news column and the news archive is right underneath, it shouldn't be anything complicated. Finally, I gave the 'forum' button on the navigation bar its very own button because I felt it did not belong in the Contact section; and since Blogspot didn't offer any external redirection, I had to do it myself (not hard, but annoying). Other than this, I have left many 'features' and 'widgets' unchanged for anyone who felt they might be necessary, or just found them appealing. I do not personally frequent the releases WOW!Scans happens to release; however, I'm sure the staff here would appreciate any donations or visitors in the IRC channel, so please give them some encouragement, I know for a fact even one 'thank you' can go a long way.

I hope Yamada and Koizumi don't mind me posting this. ;;
Anyways, have a great day and I hope I'll be doing more designing and web-formatting for someone else in the near future.

WOW!, Where's Overdrive!?

Alright, since I'm behind, I figured you might want an updated idea of where we're at.

Overdrive 41: It's all my fault, but I'm behind on coursework as well, so it's not that I've forsaken you, I'm just fighting a cold or flu or something that's trying to happen, and real life kind of got in the way this weekend.

Past Future 2:  The first of our joints with Hachimitsu.  Handed all of our parts over already, look for something soon.

Reversible 2:  Cleans are ready, translator on that one's running a little behind the schedule he quoted me.  Should be soon, in any case.

Shiki:  Yeah, we're picking it up.  Hoping to find a dedicated translator to work on just this series, we'd like to fill in that 6-8 chapter hole in the translations as quick as we can.

Everything else is patiently waiting its turn in the queue.  If you have questions about when we'll do the next chapter of a particular series, you can always email me or post in the forums.

I'd like to get Overdrive out during the week if I can, but it's likely that class will be a factor that prevents it.  Either way, I have a five day weekend for Veterans' Day, so expect OD 41 and at least one other release to come between now and next week's classes starting on Tuesday.

Thursday, November 4, 2010

WOW!, Can You Believe it!? WOW!scans Strikes Again!!!

So, how many of you believed me when I said Mei no Naisho would get a release this soon?  This chapter was over the top to the point of absurdity, and I loved every minute of working on it!  I'll do the same thing as we did for Overdrive and host the previous' groups scanlations on the projects page, but it'll take me a day or two since we have some more pressing stuff at the moment (coordinating joint releases for Waai series, anyone?)  Anyway, Overdrive next, hopefully by the end of the weekend.

Mei no Naisho chapter 4:

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

WOW! It's a lot of stuff all at once!!

Alright, so as promised, there's a bunch of stuff coming out today.  Before I line them all up in a row for you, business first.  Depositfiles is shit, and their payout scheme is deceptive as hell.  Do me a favor and click on the ad on the side once in a while, and maybe we'll wind up just going with the adsense or occasional donation drive type stuff.  This part is important only if you care if you care about me staying in a good mood:  go ahead and ask when stuff will be out, or why there are delays.  Do not decide that since I said something would 'hopefully' have the script done at a certain point, you should just bitch and moan that the finished chapter isn't out yet.  If you want to know why it isn't here, when it will be here, whatever, just fucking ask, it's not that hard to be a little more polite about it.  If we have time, we work on stuff for you guys, if we don't, we don't.  The sort-of quad release tonight and the tentative two more releases by the end of the weekend should show that.  Don't forget that we have an IRC channel, a message board, and an email address, all of which are better places for questions and snarky comments anyway.

Anyway, all that out of the way, first up is Kaichu!  Chapter 3 release, and chapter 2 v2 release.  The fixes on chapter 2 aren't really of plot significance, so if you're a read-and-delete type of person, it isn't really worth the trouble, but if you keep scanlations around, definitely replace the old version.
Kaichu! Chapter 3:
Kaichu! Chapter 2 v2:

Also, I promised Oto Nyan stuff soon (WOW! that's a lot of paragraphs opening with 'a' words, completely unintentional, I swear).  We've got the two one shots up first...  The color 4-pager (Boku mo Kitto) is ridiculously cute, although very light on plot, and the other one's 6 pages (Cosmos), similarly cute, similar theme, but definitely read the translator's note at the end about the significance of the 'cosmos' flower:
Oto Nyan one-shots:

I suppose it bears mentioning that Prunus Girl 18 is now in the Mediafire archive under the 'projects' page.

WOW!, I Forgot to Even Title this Post for a While...

So...  You may be interested to know that soba-scans took 'Secret Devil Chan,' a Waai series, off of our hands.  Apparently some of my issue with it may have been that they were using some Chinese readings of the kanji or something...  Anyway, we raw provided the first three chapters over there, so go check it out, it's pretty funny stuff:

Kaichu! chapter 3 is in typesetting, likewise with chapter 2 version 2, and a short color chapter from Oto Nyan.  I'm going to bang out another short Oto Nyan thing, then hopefully our first Mei no Naisho chapter.  Probably time to do some Overdrive again as well, so hopefully we'll crank through all of that by the time Sunday rolls around again.  (Also, if you know an *experienced* translator who's interested in hooking up with a group, send them this way.  I'm not going to do more general recruiting for it, since I want to find someone reliable - translation checking takes just about as long as doing it myself in the first place, so there's no point to recruiting if that's going to be necessary)

WOW!, Yamada's Not at Home, so She Has No Spiffy Pictures~

Anyway, no pics, but I did get the Oto*Nyan disc ripped.  It's a sound-disc, looks like it's a sort of 'how to be a trap' kind of thing.  We won't be subbing it, at least any time soon, so anyone who is inclined can feel free without stepping on our toes.


Friday, October 29, 2010

WOW!, What the Hell is Oto*Nyan!?!

Depending on how much attention you pay to the trap scene, you may have known that it was about time for the new trap quarterly, Oto*Nyan to show up.  My copy showed up yesterday, so I've got all the non-manga content scanned for you guys already (there's quite a bit, an illustration gallery, interviews, reviews, much more than Waai has in terms of non-manga content).  Within the next few days (directly following us finally releasing Kaichu! 3), we'll release a few of the shorter manga stories (there's a couple 4 page stories and a couple 12 page stories) to give you an idea of the content in this magazine before we start working on anything really long out of it, especially since everything looks to be ongoing series, too.  Raws for all the stories we decide we aren't working on will go public pretty quickly, keep an eye out here or at Desuchan, or just ask about them.


Tuesday, October 26, 2010

WOW!, We've Been Slow This Past Week

Yeah, yeah, I'm aware Kaichu! chapter 3 is behind schedule.  It's at about 25% done on the TL side, and the cleans are already waiting, so it should come out as soon as I scrape together enough time to finish the translation.  Stupid real life getting in the way and such.  Anyway, Prunus Girl chapter 18 is out first, for a variety of reasons.  The first and foremost being that this is our flagship series, and has a lot more readers waiting on releases.  The second is that it's easier to translate, and I knew I could get it done in one night so we'd for sure have a release before my school week starts again tomorrow.  We're starting the depositfiles stuff to hopefully start bringing in some effortless raw money.  If you really hate depositfiles, check the mediafire archive in a week or so, I'll be mirroring everything after the initial wave of downloads passes for each release.  Mangafox shouldn't be getting chapters uploaded until a few days after the release now, since the traffic on that site is so high, I figured it'd probably be good to route it past our adsense shit and through the despositfiles downloads for now and see how things work.  If anyone sees releases posted over there within three days of our release here, let me know please.  Also, we'll have a v2 of Kaichu! chapter 2 along with the chapter 3 release.  I've been bad about getting to that email, so if that individual that sent me the email is reading this, thanks for catching my slip-up, and feel free to do so in the future as well (the late hours I usually translate during aren't too bad, but I may miss a word and screw up based on contextual cues like that again ;;>_>)

Alright, business out of the way, this is a pretty fun chapter.  Some of you might still be disappointed that Aikawa isn't the focus this time around (he's in it, but probably only about half the time, the chapter's about their class president), but I got a kick out of it.

WOW! Something Unexpected!

I know we're moving a bit slower than you (or we) would probably like, but sometimes personal life, family, and school kind of eat into time that I'd otherwise use for stuff like this.  Anyway, what we've got for today is a special side story chapter for Prunus Girl (it's pretty short).  The next real chapter should come out in the 10/22 issue of Gangan Joker, so hopefully this tides you over till then.  Other releases will come out as they come out, I'm not even sure what kind of schedule to estimate at the moment (it might speed up from the current pace, or slow down, who knows).

Sunday, October 10, 2010

Wow! It's a Double Release! (Kind of...)

Alright, as it says up above, we have two releases tonight, but one is pretty short.  The first release is our first Mei no Naisho release, and it's the color extra chapter from the beginning of volume two.  Hopefully this helps get everyone excited about the new project!  I'll get some links for the old scanlations of the first volume up for you guys before we get a real chapter release.
Direct link:

The second release is chapter 40 of Over Drive, and it's the first chapter from volume six.  I just have to say, I felt really bad for Kaho at a few points in this one...
Direct link:

Other than that, Kaichu! is next up (hopefully I'll TL Monday, then we'll get a Tuesdayish release), and make sure to check out the new forums!

Friday, October 8, 2010

WOW! Site Contruction!

Alright, as I'm sure you've noticed, we're tinkering with the layout.  Bear with it, I think it'll lead to a better site overall.  Newswise, I have a few things that are worth mentioning.

The first Hourou Musuko trailer is out:
I like the feel of it, but I do hope they ease up on the shininess of the hair a bit...

Curo-kun subs are out, I'd direct link to the torrent, but the way they put it on the tracker fucks that up, so either find it on (the search term 'maid' seems to work wonderfully) or go dig around on aarinfantasy's site:

Next up, the guy who did some kind of goofy stuff back when we first started with Prunus Girl has turned out to actually be a pretty decent bro, and he's starting his own scanlation group.  His first release is of a Waai comic called 'Past Future.'  Go check it out, make sure you grab it from his projects page though, he neglected to put a link on his release blog post anywhere:

Alright, last on the agenda: WOW!'s schedule and whatnot.  I'm still hoping we can work our way up to two releases per week, but I'm completely out of the picture from Tuesday to Thursday with how busy classes are.  All that really means is that we need to settle into a groove where I'm getting one script done Friday night and one done Monday night, which I think is doable.  The group that was doing Maid in Japan and then stopped for over four months just released chapter 3...  I think we'll go ahead on plan on still doing this series, what we'll probably do is release the newest chapter, regardless of who did the previous chapters - ie, if we did a chapter right now, it'd be the fourth one, if they then did the fifth, we'd skip to the sixth - they have 6 translators and we only have one, I'm not interested in an e-peen contest over the series, but I definitely want it to get completed for the sake of the fans.  I think we'll get something in the 'about us' page about our tentative schedule and such, and keep it updated, so that I don't have to clog the front page with these kinds of updates...

Sunday, October 3, 2010

WOW! Kaichu! Second Shot!

Yup, it's the second chapter of Kaichu!, it's about a day behind when I was thinking we'd get the release out, but it's close enough, right?  It looks like we'll be getting our first batch of raws for Maid in Japan and Mei no Naisho tomorrow afternoon, so look forward to those entering the release rotation in the very near future.  Next up will be another chapter of Over Drive, hopefully by mid-week so we have enough time to cram in a second release of something or other during the weekend.  That's super tentative at this moment though...  I'll throw out the paypal/contact email one more time, I'll find some place for a permanent link later so I don't have to mention it again:

Kaichu! 2:

WOW! It's News and New Series Info!

All right, there's kind of a lot going on, so I figured I'd throw this up as a news post rather than wait and clutter up the Kaichu! release post later (chapter 2 this weekend, hopefully).

First, there's the run down on what we're going to be working on project-wise:
Prunus Girl
Over Drive
Mei no Naisho
Maid in Japan
Possibly Waai stuff, possibly Oto*Nyan stuff, possibly Change H stuff

Basically, we're going to have raws coming in to cover the entire Maid in Japan series, and some of the raws for the ongoing stuff...  We already have the public raws for the entire Over Drive series too!  The ideal release schedule for my translation pace is two chapters per week, we still lag a bit on the cleaning step though, so if you feel up to pitching in and doing some cleaning, jump in our IRC channel and help us out!

Since I just talked about that, it seems logical to move on to the finances bit next...  As Koizumi pointed out already, we added AdSense shit to the sidebar, and we'll probably start toying around with using depositfiles for some of our uploads, just to cover stuff like magazine subscriptions and takoban raws.  You can also donate via paypal if you're so inclined (someone was asking about it, so I set one up): is the email address it's tied to, so go wild.

Just as an aside, I'm starting classes on Monday, so there might be a bit of a lag in releases while I get my schedule all sorted out, but I doubt it, since the TL phase is typically the fastest step for us.

WOW! We just kicked it into Overdrive!

Hey everybody, so here it is, our next series we picked up, it's Overdrive. This here is Chapter 39 and some extras from the volume release. I wish I could have been here to typeset this one but I was pretty busy so thanks to our pal, You Gon Get Giefed, for covering my ass while I was gone. Well here's the link for you all:

And here is the full volume:

Folder with all the volumes:

Alright, now down to some business, I apologize for not being as eloquent as Yamada is with words so bare with me. Let's see, I put some notes somewhere... what did Yamada want me to say? Oh! Here we go.

So we enabled some ads, we aren't too sure exactly how this shit works so we'll be playing around with it for the next month or two sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. Also by the time we release the next Prunus Girl, we might switch to depositfiles. Now this is just to cover the cost of more raws for Prunus Girl, and don't worry in case we do wind up switching we will keep updating the mediafire and our megaupload backup, they will just be behind the depositfiles one by about a week.

Also we have this voting survey thing in the sidebar, we are always willing to listen to our fans' input so please vote, now we aren't going to always have surveys up because we're not fags that always need them up like "IS EYEKAWA HOTLULZ!?! XD" "YES" "YES" "NO I'M A FAGGIT" so what little surveys we have are important and will be considered in our work. We will have more stuff coming as well thanks to NJMANGA (I'm pretty sure that's it) who will be providing raws for us. And because of this we are still actively looking for cleaners!

If you think you have what it takes feel free to contact us, our IRC links are over on the side there so come on in and start shouting at us, one of us is in there all the time so just try to get our attention, if we don't answer immediately I apologize, sometimes I just don't look and Yamada will eventually notice though and tell me.

Yamada will likely clean my shit up, so you'll have to deal with my shit post until he fixes it. Well, until next time!

WOW! It's the First of Our New Projects!

That's right, we picked up Kaichu!  It's an archery club manga with a trap in it, and it already gives me a little bit of the same vibe as Prunus Girl, so be sure to check it out!  We started from chapter one, I know DEB released the first chapter already, but if you read that one you'll know why we started from the beginning.  Hopefully within the next 4-5 days we'll have another new project getting its first release too...  keep your eyes open for it!  It's kind of an exciting time with WOW! right now, since we've pretty much gotten all our plans sorted out, and we ended up hooking up with a very generous raw provider, so things should start moving a little more quickly around here and there should be lots of good stuff coming out!
Direct links:

Also, as sort of an omake...  We were talking about Type-Moon and their mollusk references, and talked one of our friends into writing something sort of in parody of that.  It's called "Fate Shell Night," and it's kind of an... interesting... way to kill ten or fifteen minutes:
(Any Fate Shell Night fanart would be appreciated, he seemed to be pretty embarrassed about the whole thing...)

WOW! Comiket stuff is still coming out?

Alright, we've got a scanlation release coming soon, hopefully tonight, but I thought I'd get this upload thread out of the way first so we don't end up with too much clutter in that post.  It's a collection of comiket stuff, some trap related and some Vocaloid.  I'll go with the traps first.

We all know I like abgrund a lot, and these two uploads mean that we've got everything he put out this year, which is pretty nice.  Don't ask about Eien translations at the moment, the guy who did the first book may have already completed the script for part 2, so I'm just going to play 'wait and see' on that.  Also, I'm not really sure what the second one's a parody work of... 
Eien 3:

These uploads, if I'm not mistake, bring us back up to the point where all the c78 Vocaloid is available here.  There's three albums, I think Distorted Princess has been floating around for a while already though.  I think all three are definitely worth a listen, in any case.

WOW! Two posts in one day!

"Nice Idea!"

Yes that's right, and post by me no less. Well I just decided to let you guys know, we have an IRC channel now. I think a couple people wanted one so I went and made it. I'll probably make Yamada put permanent links up on here somewhere eventually (since either I can't do it or I'm to dumb to find the place where I can do that), but until then here are the a couple links:

IRC Webchat

Alright, until next time guys.

WOW! What the hell's going on

Alright, so I've been told that some people expect to hear trap news here, and this DDL of the Shounen Maid Curo-kun - Tenshi no Uta OVA *just* appeared, so I figured I should share.  I haven't watched all the way through, but it looks like it meets my fairly high expectations from skimming through it.

Also, for Vocaloid, loli, or shota fans, Yamaha's got something interesting going on, it's a little girl and little boy voicebank that reads what you type in.  Use the box on the right side about halfway down the page.  The top slider is speed, the bottom one is pitch.

WOW, it's Suddenly More Prunus Girl

Alright, I know last time I posted, the next thing up was "Secret Devil-chan," but I also admitted I wasn't having much fun with it and it was progressing rather slowly.  In light of that, when Prunus Girl Chapter 17 raws dropped into my lap, I decided to go ahead and work on this instead for the moment.  (This would have been out three days ago if our cleaner wasn't a bum, too...  if you can clean, and you think you could commit to a better turnaround time than that, feel free to drop us a line)  Anyway, I think I have a torrent in the works for jousou hentai fans...  Also, work on the Waai comics will continue, albiet slowly.

Here's folder links, I think I'll just repost these for now and see if anything happens with reported links:

WOW, it's News and HD Miku

Alright, so the translation on "The Secret Devil-chan" is making me rip my hair out, so I thought I'd take a break and share some miscellaneous news you may have missed.

 First up, there's an animated Poju project in the works.  See the picture above, it's all the info we have at the moment.  The 2010 dates are when that particular promo artwork was put up on Poju's site, and the 2011 with no month or day listed near it is referring to the actual release of the anime.  Like I said, we don't really have details other than that pic yet, but it looks like we've got a trap main character and a male main character (or they're the same person with a wig), Poju's doing character designs (that's all it says he's doing, at least), and Studio Zealot is doing the production (they're a doujin circle, hope for lighter censorship without a sacrifice in quality, that'd be our best case scenario).

Next, you may have heard a bit about the anime: "Mayo elle Otokonoko" announced with the 2nd volume of Waai.  Basically at this point, we've got a confirmed trap character and a "cute boy" character, along with a slew of females.  They haven't announced distro on this (OVA, ONA, TV, etc), but it'd be a fair guess to think that it'll at least start as an OVA being distributed with upcoming issues of Waai.  See the animenewsnetwork link for the cast list so far, the second link is the Japanese site for the show.

Last on the trap front, there's a new trap magazine coming in October.  Oto★Nyan sounds like it'll be more focused on original manga than Waai is (Waai's contents are only half manga, there's a bunch of articles and such), especially if the list of tentative participating mangaka is correct (9 onboard already?).  Not much to say really, other than that I'm looking forward to seeing what Oto★Nyan's got to offer.

Last but certainly not least, as you guessed from the entry title, the Miku "39's Day of Giving" concert BD is out, and a kind anon already ripped it in glorious 720p for your viewing pleasure.  It's a multipart archive, so be sure you have both pieces before trying to extract it.

WOW, it's Vocaloid and Download Mirrors

If you were paying attention, you'd know that we've had issues with links getting reported and such.  I'm not 100% sure if it's manual reporting, as popular mediafire links seem to be coming down all over the place lately, so I wouldn't rule out some sort of bot-reporting or manual checks of links with a certain number of hits in a short time period.  Anyway the solution I've come to is just giving the general sharefolder link for WOW!scans in the mediafire, and also setting up a share folder on megaupload.  I'll still put up direct links with new releases, but bookmark these two, because they're where reuploads will show up when links break:

General WOW! housekeeping stuff:
I'd like to sub the Prunus Girl drama CD, but for a variety of reasons it would be a massive pain in the ass compared to working with manga.  If anyone wants to work on it as a joint release, email me and we can talk about exactly which aspects I'd need help with before considering it seriously any time soon.  I'll probably do something for it translation wise anyway, but not till the very very end of my to do list.
We're looking for Mei no Naisho raws.  If anyone has a copy they could scan or somehow ran across raws online (I couldn't find any when I looked ;_;) It's be awesome if you could share.  So far volume one is out by another group (find em on mangahelpers), and it's a really cute story, so I'd like to get the ball rolling on it again.

Yeah, yesterday I said I had something to share, and I do.  It's the four disc compilation album from comiket that you may have seen me mention at some point.  Since it's four discs, and it uses Miku, Rin, Len, and possibly more, and the musical styles change from song to song, AND it's a compilation of works be different artists, I think it has something for everyone.  Definitely check it out.  External link for this one, since already messes up tags a bit, I don't want to mangle them further and then re upload:

Also, holic is uploading some stuff, I think all the comiket albums are reposts of stuff I've already shared here (with 90% more mangled tags...), but he's sharing some Voc@loid M@ster stuff as well.  Holic does garble his tags and album names pretty badly, but it's still worth sharing his blog link with ya:

WOW, we're caught up to Japan

Alright, so first things first, we're proud to bring you Prunus Girl chapter 16, the most recent chapter published in Gangan Joker - meaning we're now caught up with the Japanese serialization, and it'll be month waits between chapters again.  I guess that's both a good thing and a bad thing as a fan when you get caught up like that.  Also, since they're advertising the Drama CD so much, you might have gotten interested in it...  I'm seeding the mp3 version on TokyoToshokan right now, or you can snag it from the DDL's below.
Chapter 16 direct link:

Drama CD:
Drama CD liner notes and art scans only:

Other than that, I thought it might be nice to let you guys know I already have some raws in my hands for series in Waai vol 2 that we're for sure taking over, so expect Waai stuff to be next on the (non-hentai) plate.
We may do something else by abgrund before taking the plunge into the Waai projects, it all depends on how we feel over the next day or two.

It's looking like someone's been reporting our links to mediafire or something, since earlier today all three Prunus Girl releases and the Love Pura doujin all got removed at the same time.  They're back up, you can grab them here:
I'm going to get a megaupload set up for WOW!scans as well so that we have some backup mirrors going on, but always let me know when you notice something got taken down so I can reupload it.  Before trying to tell me something's down though, make sure to check that folder share link I just posted, as I'm not going to go through the whole blog and change all the direct links every time something gets replaced.  That was a long blog post, so expect another post tomorrow with the scoop on the megaupload stuff, I have some Vocaloid shares to get up anyway.
