WOW!, Traps, Doppelgangers, and Traps!



Alright, there's a lot going on tonight, so take it slow and let's just go step by step.
First we've got Hikarism ch 2, from the more recent Change H.  Honestly, this should have come out a while ago, but it got held up in cleaning due to the cleaner on this project having some real life stuff he had to prioritize, and then the same thing happened in typesetting.  Anyway, now that it's out, who cares about that anymore, go read it!
Hikarism ch 2 DDL

Next on the agenda is chapter two of Near Equal, one of our non-trap series.  I thought this was a pretty good chapter, and I hope you agree:
Near Equal ch 2 DDL

After that, we have the scans of the new Oto Nyan for you!  Like last time, we're making everything except the manga public right off the bat.  Of particular interest in the set we put up is that udk did an illustration for the gallery again this time.  Some comments about the manga however - it looks like this magazine is a little like Change H in that some ongoing series will take an issue off, since some that should have continuations aren't in this issue, also, Docchi is only four pages this month.  In any case, the content looks pretty good this time around (a little more to my taste, last issue had some stuff that was a little whorish for my liking, really).  It's a two part archive.

Last but not least, something we had no involvement in.  You may have noticed that we use Haruka from Amagami SS as our mascot, in fact the WOW! in WOW!scans is from one of her Engrish lines in the show.  Keeping that in mind, whether you're familiar with the show or not, you should go download this non-H doujin based on her and the MC just before they started really dating.  It's the first post, unless you run across this weeks from now or something:

One final little thing, for any trap loving Vocaloid fans, the Vocaloid Piko, made with samples from Piko, the guy who sings both male and female parts on NND came out a little while ago, and he's already got some songs out.  Youtube is full of trash, I don't think people are reuploading there yet, but if you have a NND account, his tag is: 歌手音ピコ

  1. Near Equal c2 MediaFire link isn't working. Tried it in both Firefox and Chrome. The chapter 1 link works fine.

  2. Actually, I've seen some Piko (vocaloid) songs on Youtube from since at least a month ago on Youtube xD

    They're most likely reprints fron Nico Nico Douga, but some are pretty nice quality. ;)

  5. >Near Equal c2 MediaFire link isn't working.

    Someone just downloaded it in our IRC and it worked. Mediafire's just having one of it's spaz moments, it won't even let me load the page to take a look at what's going on from my end. Give it till morning and if you're still having issues let me know. Or you could always come grab it from our IRC bot.

  7. I believe this video will interest those who want to see trap Piko. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3o6pIr_8Lo. It's him at one of his recent concerts. Awesome voice.

  10. ^ That's not Piko, that's Sekihan. Friend of Piko, but not him. Though you can see plenty of Piko videos in the sidebar, including Sekihan/Piko duets of magnet and Imitation Black.

    Thanks for all the releases! Especially thanks for all of Oto Nyan, that's a lot of pages.

  12. ('making everything except the manga public right off the bat' -> 'have the manga raws, but not letting you see them even if you can read Japanese' -> Whyyyyyyyyyyyy... O.O 放置プレイ?)

    Thank you very much for all given! *enjoyment and anticipation*

  13. >Is it me, or are the otonyan raws part1 and 2 almost identical?

    "Two-part archive" as in, it's a split archive, I didn't make two separate archives with half of the pages each. They look the same on the inside, but each has half the data and both are needed to extract the files.

    >'have the manga raws, but not letting you see them even if you can read Japanese'

    This comes up a lot, maybe we need a FAQ or something. We spend out of pocket for some raws, and we have a raw provider who spends his money for us to have raws on most of our stuff. I don't feel like opening things up to drama if someone decides to try and compete with us using our own raws. Anything that's already been released in English, we'll gladly share raws for, but anything we're still working on stays private, sorry.

  14. >spend out of pocket

    Ahh. That does make sense. For a separate provider I may wonder about the motivation for exclusivity, but the situation is definitely a lot clearer now. Thank you very much for your dedication!

  19. Im loving the series Near Equal How did you guys at WOWSCANS decide in this non trap 4 koma series, Im loving it but it looks so random in terms of your normal releases.

  20. >How did you guys at WOWSCANS decide in this non trap 4 koma series

    We didn't really start with the intent of being a trap-only group, it's just that that's a part of the community that really needed someone to start translating stuff for. We love traps, and definitely want to keep making sure Oto Nyan, Waai, Change H, and all that get more coverage than they would have in the past, but we'll work on anything we think people would like, really. Near Equal didn't have very many good descriptions out, but it sounded kind of interesting, and I was thinking it'd be nice to get some 4koma stuff out into the limelight, since (other than K-On) that's a manga genre that I don't think many people pay enough attention to.
