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...

  2. I'm glad to hear that, Mei is probably my favorite project we work on.

  3. suzunone, sensei anone, and docchi are the three series I've seen releases on that you didn't mention. Thanks for the great work. There are many other abandoned trap manga out there, but just having you ressurect these is plenty. Thanks

  5. I loved the mei no nasho release and as the well the second project dokka, great job wow scans. Are you serious about Mei no nasho it ends in volume 4, that sucks i love this series, why do all the good series end so early but at least this is a great series but sucks we only have volume 3 and 4 left.

  6. You might like to know that Amazon.co.jp is pre-listing the next Change H volume, for release 15th April. It will be entitled "White", apparently. ISBN is 978-4785936051.

    Amazume Ryuta is the only author credited at the moment and there is no cover illo on the Amazon page yet.

  8. Mmmk, to answer about the few you guys asked about:

    >Suzunone - Actually, I have no idea why DEB isn't ready to release the next chapter, I'll get that one sorted out for y'all

    >Sensei Anone - There is a second chapter (several of the Oto Nyan series didn't get second chapters yet), this series belongs to the one translator who didn't flake on me. He's working on Balance Policy right now, I think either Sensei Anone or the Me and Kawase sequel story will be next on his list

    >Docchi - There's a second chapter, but it's only 4 pages. I'll do it sometime soon.

    >Hikarism - Didn't run in this last issue of Change H, we've actually released everything there is for this series. I was planning on getting the two chapters of 'Ruffle Princess,' by the same author, released, but that's on hold now that we're down two translators.

    Another thing to keep in mind about Oto Nyan/Waai/Change H series is that I'm never in much of a rush about getting them out (other than Reversible!/Sazanami/Past Future, since they have a huge readership), since once we get everything done there'll just be another long wait for the next issues. You can pretty much expect everything from Waai and Oto Nyan to get translated via solo projects or joints, but not usually at the cost of release pacing on our projects that we have tons of raws laying around for.

    >Change H White - Wow, that's only two months between issues, if that, right? Guess we'll have to get it on the order list, hopefully Hikarism runs this time around.

  9. >Ato no Matsuri - Didn't run in the new Oto Nyan, I dunno whether this means it turned into a one-shot after the fact or if it'll continue next issue

    >Tokidoki - It's in queue for translation, somewhere after Balance Policy, Sensei Anone, and the Kawase and Me sequel one-shot with our other translator. The fanbase for this one seems smaller than those other series, so just be patient.

  12. I found this doujin by the same artist as Ato no Matsuri: http://exhentai.org/g/397204/1282e5831e/

    It appears to be a hentai continuation of the one shot. I know you guys tend not to translate the more sexual stuff, but it'd be nice to know the end of the story.
