Where things are going from here.

Keep an eye on things here. We'll share details with you when other groups pick up the series we unfortunately left dead in the water. There's also a handful of scripts that we have sitting around that need typesetting, so we'll share those here in whatever form seems appropriate (hopefully we'll get them typeset for a last couple releases, but who the hell knows). I'll be doing something as well, I'm not entirely sure what, but the main reason I'm going on haitus is because I can't handle dealing with all the bullshit of running a group anymore right now, so either I'll be packing up a few series and joining up with another group so that they can handle the stressful end, or I'll learn photoshop and fly solo, not really sure which. Whatever happens, you'll find out here. Lastly, any groups interested in picking up something we were working with should request raws from

NJManga has been aggressively soliciting some of the series we were working with, and it looks like so far he's gotten Prunus Girl and several of the Waai series picked up already. NEEDLESS is already picked back up by the guy who was doing it via Pewpew, I think as a solo venture using js06's scripts.

WOW!, We actually are on hiatus.

Unfortunately here at WOW!scans, we have to take a break for a while, I know this is sort of a late announcement but this has actually been the best opportunity to come out and say it. We all seem to be getting burnt out, we have been understaffed for a long time now and it seems like the stress has finally gotten to us. Now this isn't to say that sometime in the future there won't be WOW!scans activity but as for now and the near future, sadly you shouldn't expect much from us. So until further notice, see ya guys later.

Your pal,
Koizumi's Pimp Hand

WOW!, Another Long Wait Rewarded!

Not much Gon-chan in this chapter, but it is fairly exciting, as the archery competition draws to a close (think one more chapter to wrap it up, judging from how this one ends). The next chapter is in typesetting already, and the chapter after that is partially translated already, so it shouldn't be as long of a wait this time around (no hard and fast etas though, working with another group makes it hard to promise stuff). Also, I didn't realize until just now, but this is the first chapter in the second volume, so we'll get the extra stuff from volume one all sorted out and get a volume batch uploaded here soon.

Thursday, July 28, 2011

WOW!, Prunus Girl at Last!

So yeah, we kind of fell off our game on Prunus Girl, and each chapter was a few days behind, until this one ended up pretty far behind the mag release. There's always a silver lining though, as Prunus Girl doesn't have a chapter for July, so it kind of just ended up spreading out that month of haitus over the past 3-4 releases rather than having a full extra month break all at once. Or something. Anyway, there's two-three Kaichu! chapters nearing release, three OtoBoku chapters in typesetting, and the next Mei chapter is >50% translated, so prepare your bodies.

Prunus Girl chapter 25 DDL:

Friday, July 22, 2011

WOW!, One Down, More to Come!

The long awaited ending to Usagi Drop is finally here! Chapter 56... well... I just don't think it was nearly as well written as most of the series, it makes me wonder about the circumstances surrounding ending the series so suddenly. Just for clarity's sake, I'll let you know that there is a two year time skip between chapter 55 and chapter 56, the chapter doesn't even make that terribly clear unless you're paying attention. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it, and look forward to eventual releases of the spin-off manga, either when public raws appear for the magazine releases or when the volume release comes out and we buy it.

Also, we've got that one-shot I mentioned a while back. It took a little longer than I expected, since the editor working on it wanted to make sure all the color redraws and stuff were up to snuff before we released it. We didn't bother including a credits page for this one since it's so short that it seemed silly, (page number wise - there was still plenty of work that went into this one, especially in the editing side) but I did the scanning and translation, and GayRobot did the editing.

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

WOW!, Just One More to Go!

Alright, so we've got a few things tonight. We've got the second to last Usagi Drop chapter, as well as the Change H WHITE raws and the raws of the OtoNyan vol. 3 extras.

Usagi Drop ch 55:

Change H WHITE:

OtoNyan Extras:

Saturday, July 16, 2011

WOW!, Almost Done~

That's right, more Usagi Drop. This is chapter 54, which means there's only two more left, not counting that spin-off stuff in the works. The one shot I mentioned earlier is still in typesetting, so it'll be out soon.

Usagi Drop ch 54:

WOW!, More and More Bunny Rabbits~

Yup, more Usagi Drop. Chapter 53 now, chapter 54 within the next 24 hours. I've finished a bunch of scanning, so by the end of the weekend I should have the Change H White raws to share as well as the extras from OtoNyan vol 3. We'll have Wadapen's usual gorgeous full-color short from this OtoNyan out today probably.

Usagi Drop ch 53:

WOW!, That Series Still Exists!?!

Yeah, I know it's been a long wait guys, I'm sorry. We had holic working on this series, then he quit, then when I was going to take it over, someone else quit, dumping a lot more shit in my lap. We now have a new translator working on it, but he's new to all this, so it takes him a little while to get a script ready, and then it has to go through a TLC pass, so expect a slow but semi-regular release pace on Near Equal again. Usagi Drop ch 53 is 95% of the way ready to release, but our TSer had people arrive at his house a few pages away from completion, so it'll be out tomorrow (possibly ch 54 as well, depending on if/when WCW_TL gets the script formatted and passed over to us).

Near Equal ch 3:

Friday, July 15, 2011

WOW!, Little Girls and Little Boys Who Look Like Little Girls~

So, tonight we have two chapters for you. First up is the second of our Usagi Drop releases, chapter 52. The other release is something we've made you wait too long for, and I'm sorry, but it's finally done: Reversible! chapter 5. Also, I forgot to announce the fact that our joint release on Sazanami Cherry came out a while ago...

Usagi Drop ch 52:

Reversible! ch 5:

Sazanami Cherry ch 5:

Wednesday, July 13, 2011

WOW!, It's Not a Trap!?

Alright, you may or may not have heard, but the group that was finishing off Usagi Drop ran into some trouble, so we'll be helping WCW_TL bring you the last 5 (I think it's five...) chapters. Tonight we've got 51, we'll have 52 for you probably tomorrow, and it should just keep rolling along pretty quickly like that. Reversible! chapter 5 is in typesetting, Prunus Girl is in translation and cleaning, we have another one-shot in the works, Mei is at bat, and we've got a few interesting surprises in store too.

WOW!, Yamada's Finally Home~

Yeah, for anyone that was bitching about the delays and such, or just wasn't paying attention, I was down in California for the last month and a half, going to Fanime and Anime Expo, visiting family, and just having a sort of vacation in general. Now I'm finally back at home though, so things should run a lot smoother again.

We've got two releases tonight, we've got more in the works and some other fairly exciting announcements as well, so wash your necks and wait.

OtoBoku chapter 16:

NEEDLESS chapter 92:

Thursday, June 16, 2011

WOW!, Now Everybody Should be Happy!

Well, everyone except the Mei no Naisho fans, but that's next on the agenda anyway. We've got two v2's and 3 releases today. The Past Future joint is out (meaning yes, SazaCherry is coming soon as well), the sequel to Me and Kawase is out, and chapter 5 of Anal Angel is out. OtoBoku 15 got some fixes for text being mispositioned, and Kaichu! ch 8 got a v2 for a missing page (a chapter starter page - the public raws we're working with until we hit volume three are scanned two pages to an image and got split up improperly by chapter in places).

Past Future chapter 4 DDL:

Me, Kawase, and the 'Feminine Me' DDL:

Anal Angel chapter 5 DDL:

OtoBoku chapter 15v2 DDL:

Kaichu! chapter 8v2 DDL:

I mentioned Mei, Reversible! is next up in my translation queue after that, for anyone waiting for that release.

Last but not least, the last chapter of Yubisaki Milk Tea is out:

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

WOW!, That Was Random!

I've got a random picture (yeah, I'm excited for Natsume season 3, what of it?) to accompany a really random assortment of stuff for you. I've got some Yubisaki updates for you (someone reminded me, I had forgotten to get the updates for a while), and some of the extra stuff from both Waai and OtoNyan.

New Yubisaki Milk Tea chapters:

WOW!, All the People Who Had Doubts About Us Being Back Sure Feel Dumb!

I think I'll do this post in an order based on which stuff I think people were anticipating the most.  4 releases and a v2 of that Sensei no Boku chapter tonight.

First, Prunus Girl.  Since this one was delayed a bit due to my whole travelling thing, the next chapter is only a couple weeks away.  This chapter brings an end to the Shion/Kana arc, and I think the conclusion was really well done.  Maybe seeing the way things wrap up will convince people to whine a little less about their story taking up time in the chapters.
Prunus Girl ch 24 DDL

Next, we have the next installment of Kaichu!, in which the battle between Sanno and Kadokawa kicks off!
Kaichu! ch 9 DDL

Following up, we have chapter 6 of Maid in Japan, which is just as off-the-wall ecchi as the previous chapters.
Maid in Japan ch 6 DDL

Finally, we have another release from the first Otome wa Boku ni Koishiteru series, chapter 15.  I'm really thinking we're going to do something along the lines of a joint project to help that group that does the second series stop putting out stuff that looks like absolute trash.
OtoBoku ch 15 DDL

And then, wrapping things up, we have the Sensei no Boku chapter one version 2.  This fix is pretty minor, that missing bubble was due to the fact that someone took three bubbles worth of information and put them into two bubbles (they did the same thing elsewhere, but we caught it).  The version 2 release will look prettier in that one spot, but there isn't anything changed in terms of dialogue or story.
Sensei no Boku ch 1v2

WOW!, Springing Back to Life with a Ton of Releases!

As the post title implies, we have a bevy (five) releases for you tonight, we've got three more on the way. Everyone who posted encouraging stuff while we were on a somewhat forced haitus, thanks a bunch. Everyone who posted rude stuff, fuck off, we don't owe you shit and you should get over yourselves.

Anyway, on to the good stuff. First up is two chapters of something from OtoNyan that's been sort of on the back burner for a while, Sensei no Boku. Femdom, teacherxstudent, sukumizu+ZR, all kinds of interests and fetishes are addressed by this one.
Sensei no Boku chapter one:
Sensei no Boku chapter two:

Next up, the next installment of the original OtoBoku series. Someone remind me in like a month and a half to buy raws for the group doing the second series, the shit they're doing raw-wise is fucking atrocious.
OtoBoku chapter fourteen:

Finally, NEEDLESS chapter 34 and 91. This was the stuff that frustrated me the most that it didn't get done, since me being busy should have very little to do with this series getting cleaned and typeset. Oh well, it's out now, so just enjoy the releases. Also, chapter 34 is where one of the gags I really like comes in, Disk printing out data.
NEEDLESS chapter 34:

We Aren't Dead

No, we aren't dead. We've had a million staff quit without saying anything though. We also haven't heard from the typesetter/cleaner who was supposed to have our releases ready almost a week ago. Prunus Girl should be ready soon, since it's only me and Koizumi that work on that, so no one can fuck us over on it. If you're frustrated by the delays recently, feel free to volunteer to help us out, that's the only way things are going to speed up (well, they will speed up anyway, simply because I'm out of classes, but translation scripts without cleaners and typesetters won't really get things moving terribly faster).

Note from Koizumi:
If you want to be a cleaner for us, please do not send us an example using a crumpled up page that is taped together. If you do so, you'll be lucky if I let you get away without me insulting you or pointing out your bullshit publicly (pic related). Don't worry I won't mention your name, but you know who you are. Also please be good, I really can't be there to hold your hand through the whole process. Being able to redraw would be appreciated so that everything isn't on my shoulders as well.

WOW!, I want to have a sweet pompadour too

So here we go everyone, some more OverDrive. I didn't actually read this myself because I've been busy, but somehow I was the least busy to be able to post this. So, without reading this I'd say expect to hear talks about bikes and see people riding bikes in this chapter. Also I like this pompadour dude's style. Just check him out.

Overdrive Ch. 44


To all you jerks who voted "No" on the poll, you guys are lame and will never be as awesome as me. Deal with it.

Friday, April 29, 2011

WOW!, A NEEDLESS Double Release!

Yup, as part of the glut of things that were all in process at the same time, here's two more chapters of NEEDLESS. We've got one from the scanlation gap, ch 33, as well as the new chapter, chapter 90. Enjoy!


Thursday, April 28, 2011

WOW! It's Actually a Completed Chapter this Month!

Yup, that's right, a new Prunus Girl chapter. It seems like I measure my life in increments based on this release, every month I have to stop and realize that it's been a full month already... I think it's a pretty good chapter, although haters are probably going to hate, since it's a continuation of the Hanazaka/Wakakusa story from last time. NEEDLESS to come later tonight/early tomorrow morning.

PG ch 23 DDL:

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

WOW! A Double Release Sports Festival!

Yup, OverDrive is coming off haitus, this one's turning into a joint project as well to help get the pacing back up. (Note to whoever was being impatient in the comments: two chapters of NEEDLESS and the new Prunus Girl will all be out most likely within 24 hours. This is why you don't whine, even when stuff isn't showing up on the blog, we're all working our asses off on stuff that's on it's way.)

OverDrive ch 43 DDL:

WOW!, More Archery!

We turned Kaichu! into a joint project since we were having trouble keeping a consistent release schedule with it. We did the same with OverDrive, expect a release from that series later today. Anyway, the competition's coming up and things are heating up in Kaichu!, so enjoy chapter 8!

Kaichu ch 8 DDL:

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

WOW!, He's a Hot Blooded Man's Man

Yup, more NEEDLESS.  This is another chapter from that scanlation gap, chapter 32.  I'm very pleased with how quickly that gap is getting filled in~  No sneak peeks of what's next, everything's kind of up in the air for the next few days.


Sunday, April 10, 2011

WOW!, Hamburgers Everywhere!!

So, we've got some Kaichu! and some OtoBoku for you guys tonight. NEEDLESS ch 32 tomorrow.

Kaichu! ch 7 DDL:
OtoBoku ch 13 DDL:

Also, our friends over at Yorozuya Mio-chan have finished another two chapters of Yubisaki for your enjoyment:

Saturday, April 9, 2011

WOW!, Devils Can Trap too!

Alright, our friends at Soba-scans have finished Devil-chan chapter 4, so go get it:

In other news, we've got OtoBoku and Kaichu! both nearing a releasable state, and more NEEDLESS on it's way as well.

Also, I'll be at Sakuracon coming up in a few weeks, if you'd like to meet up, just let me know.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

WOW!, Koizumi's Making A Post

Yeah that's right, it's been a while since I've posted anything and what with Yamada being at school and all, I decided to be a good guy and handle this post. Well it's another from that translation gap, but it's still needless, so expect high levels of manliness and badassity. Yeah badassity is a word. Why? Because I said so. Anyways, I've said enough, enjoy.

NEEDLESS Chapter 31

P.S. I'm awesome and know how to make links work.

Sunday, April 3, 2011


I thought I was off the hook for the release schenanaegains for once, otherwise this would have been out earlier. I had a fairly shit week this past week, Near Equal and whatever I'm working on after that are both delayed due to me wanting to shoot things and drinking instead as a more civically responsible alternative. Anyway, new NEEDLESS chapter tonight, another one from the gap in translations.


(Yeah, blogger is persisting with it's issues, deal with the link format for now.)

Friday, April 1, 2011

WOW!, What's This?!

Here's a nice little WOW!scons exclusive: Junk Wars episode 4, part one. I hope you guys enjoy it!

Also, Prunus Girl batch downloads are now in the shared folder, and back volumes of NEEDLESS are also showing up in its shared folder, use the projects page to get them.

Thursday, March 31, 2011

WOW!, Something We Have Very Little to do With!

So, you probably know that we don't work on licensed stuff, but an idler in our IRC channel helps out with a group that's quietly working on the last volume of Yubisaki Milk Tea, which is something I know a lot of people are probably waiting for (since Tokyopoop is taking forever). They release through a forum that requires registration to see the links:

I don't really like that dynamic though, and our idler said it'd probably be fine to just repost the links for y'all:

Here's the older stuff that's already been released by TP:

And here's the new content:

I'll try to keep you guys up to date on their releases, but I might wind up a day or two behind, so it's probably worth it to at least check their forum and yell at me to steal their links when I forget.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

WOW!, So Much Stuff All of a Sudden!

Alright, three releases for you tonight (right after that double release, too!).  First up is Reversible! chapter 4.  I'm never in a terribly big rush to push out the Waai stuff even though you guys think you want it right away, because now it'll be 2-3 months for the next chapter :/
Second is the first chapter of NEEDLESS from the gap in scanlation, chapter 29.  this is also the first chapter in volume 5, so there's color pages and a volume cover to go with this one.
Last but not least, the fourth chapter of Balance Policy.  The next volume of Change H has already been announced (they held off on announcing RED until the last minute, then they announce this one pretty early, idk what's up), so hopefully Hikarism returns and we get a new chapter of Balance Policy as well.

Reversible! ch 4 DDL
Balance Policy ch 4 DDL

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

WOW!, Dicks and Lesbians!

Double release tonight, Anal Angel was waiting on typesetting for a while, Prunus Girl raws just showed up a couple days ago.  Anyway, Prunus Girl is a pretty good chapter this month, but some of the pages look unfinished, most likely due to the earthquake and all that.  Anal Angel introduces a new character this time, also this time it's more sex and less talk.
Anal Angel ch 4 DDL
Prunus Girl ch 22 DDL

Also, Reversible! should be out in the next day or two.  New Balance Policy soon as well.  Chapter 29 of NEEDLESS is also on the plate.

Saturday, March 26, 2011

WOW!, Caught Up Already!?

Yup, that's right, chapter 89 of NEEDLESS already. Not really sure what the hold up on Anal Angel and Reversible! are, I'll yell at the people responsible. Anyway, this chapter brings up back to being caught up with the current releases in Japan, so we'll do chapter 29 next, working towards filling the translation gap. The pacing on filling that gap is entirely up to js06, the translator we're working with on this project. I'm about halfway through translating the new Prunus Girl chapter, and there's good news and bad news. It's a pretty good chapter so far, but it looks like Tomoki didn't get it finished in time, and there's some pages that are obviously unfinished pages from the name. Not really anything we can do about that, so try to enjoy it despite those issues when we release it.


Thursday, March 24, 2011

WOW!, Rolling Right Along~



So, something slipped past our QC on chapter 87, so here's a v2. Chapter 88 out already, and chapter 89 is on it's way! As far as filling in the gap, we have a script for chapter 29, so I'm guessing js06 is willing to work on fixing that, but I dunno what the release pace will look like. We'll keep right up with whatever he gets translated for us though. In terms of how picking up NEEDLESS affects our other projects: little to no effect. This is one of the many reasons I was excited to pick it up. Since translators is what we're short on and this project came with a translator, it's pretty easy to work in without fucking up our release pacing.

WOW!, That Was Fast!

You may have noticed (probably not) the quiet announcement that we're picking up NEEDLESS.  No one's really sure why Pewpew hasn't been doing much lately, but it's been quite a while and the translator (js06) decided to open up his scripts to whoever wanted them, and we talked to him about us picking up the project with him.  This is the first of three catch-up chapters, chapter 87.  88 and 89 will be out ASAP, and then we'll be on a monthly release schedule with the magazine it runs in.


Also, the projects page actually got updated, I'll be uploading back chapters of stuff soon (Prunus Girl, since someone reminded me, OtoBoku, and probably NEEDLESS as well).  The bots are staying up to date better now as well, packlists available via the tab up top.

Tuesday, March 22, 2011

WOW!, Mei, News, and Porn!

I guess I'll introduce our two releases, and then talk a little about our projects, what's going on, what the hold up is on some things, and all that.

First up tonight is Mei no Naisho ch 9, another perfect example of everything I love about this series.  It's also got a second trap, another male or two in the story, and some other stuff that might win over some of the folks that complain that they don't like the fact that it's all girls...

Second for tonight is a hentai one shot (it ran in a commercial magazine if I'm not mistaken, so 'doujin' would be an inappropriate label) that I can only really categorize as transformation, even though that's not strictly what happens.  It's gender play, but it's really hard to describe what goes on without just summarizing the whole thing.  This is our second project where Ranma-kun from Farhad's TG forum worked on the script, and the first project we've had kusion from [gg]/UTW do some TLC for us.  Collaborative work is always fun!

Alright, so here's a quick rundown of what's going on by project:

Prunus Girl - next chapter's raws due in soon
Reversible! - next chapter is waiting on typesetting
Mei - we just got the volume 4 raws, it looks like the series ends at the end of that volume, which makes me sad
Kaichu! - the translator we had on this is mia, vote in the poll since I guess I'm going to be working on this
Maid in Japan - same boat as Kaichu!
Anal Angel - next chapter is waiting on typesetting
Balance Policy - in translation
OtoBoku - next chapter is twoish projects down my personal translating queue, so it'll be fairly soon
Near Equal - the translator bailed on us, now this one's one of my personal projects too, chapter three is about halfway done
Imouto wa Shishunki - to be honest, with things getting so hectic, I kind of forgot this joint existed.  I guess I'll get some of this busted out soon too
Houkago Play - dropped.  Woxxy and Foolrulez are picking it up, so bother them about it, not me

As you can see (I skipped over some projects that are irregular releases or whatnot, ask if you're wondering about something that didn't get mentioned), we had two translators flake on us, or at least one flake and the other go incommunicado.  Be patient, I'll do my best personally to keep everything moving along, but definitely keep in mind the fact that we're recruiting...

Thursday, March 17, 2011

WOW!, Waai Joints!

Yup, I'm sure lots of people were waiting on these, so here's the joint releases with Hachimitsu from the recent issue of Waai!. Past Future chapter 3 and Sazanami Cherry chapter 4. Reversible! is on it's way, don't worry.

Past Future ch 3 DDL:
Sazanami Cherry ch 4 DDL:
