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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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...

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.
