Ichinensei ni Nacchattara v03 ch18

Realised that Ichinensei’s 3rd volume only had 6 chapters, so there’s only two more left to go before I have to wait for the 4th compilation. The next two introduce the odd alien Onee-sa—I mean, Ojii-san~!

Kimama ni UpDown v01 ch04

And finally the last chapter for the first volume of this old series. A Japanese Kimama ni UpDown fan by the name of Makoto e-mailed me about this (which is a first for any of my projects) and wanted to know how popular it is outside of Japan. According to Makoto, the manga wasn’t much of a hit in Japan, though he says the books sell for about 4000~6000 yen at the online auction sites. Anyway, Makoto likes Okano Natsumi to such a degree that he plans to create a visual novel with her (The link under Makoto’s name is to his website which also leads to his personal blog).

Wadatsumi v01 ch01

A story by Kotoyoshi Yumisuke. Outside of Japan, his most notable work is the Saber Marionette J manga. It’s interesting how often I’ve seen this story erroneously given a genderbending tag. Wadatsumi, despite appearances, is actually a tomboyish girl—wait, that’s probably a spoiler. Forget! =


@Spiritovod: Oh, cool! I hope your scanner gets fixed. Good luck~!

@Purple_Ghost: Yes, it is perhaps the most disturbing chapter I have ever worked on. I had to look up what manner of creature a ギョー虫 (Gyoumushi) was, which led to me consulting google… and I felt really nauseous browsing the articles and looking at the close-up pictures. Anyway, I’ll let Mrs. Fussypants help stroke your imagination.

@yariel: Thank you for understanding the perils of being a scanlator. =P

@Tau_002: Hello Oscar Sun, it’s been a while. The title of the website was mostly due to the fact that I could not get away with just “Taruby” at angelfire, so I threw in another word I liked.

Ichinensei ni Nacchattara v03 ch17


Perhaps the most disturbing chapter I have ever worked on…

The file is temporarily available on savefile until I can resolve an issue where I constantly timeout when I try to upload it to the FTP server.


@JackBassV: Ah, forgot to change the link location to v02. Thank you very much for the heads up.

@Nikkou: I believe Tama-scans was the team who worked on No Side. Unless I’m mistaken, the reason they dropped it was due to boredom with the story content or something. I haven’t read past their efforts, so I wouldn’t know for sure.

@Guest: Ah, thanks for the information. I forget the last time I checked sharedb, but I only saw Koi Neko v06 on there rather than v04-05.

@Galen: Thank you for the offer, though it seems the Tankoubon RAWs are already available according to Guest. Hopefully, mahouneko/psychoneko or someone else procures and uploads them.
