Merry Newtonmas!

Ichinensei ni Nacchattara v07 ch46

Final chapter for volume 7. The only thing I’m certain about concerning Ichinensei’s 8th volume is that it isn’t going to be released this January or February. So, there’s bound to be a long wait until the anonymous scanner starts circulating high-quality scans online. Unfortunately, this is the only chapter that the proofreaders managed to finish in time. Archer suffered a serious accident after sitting on the lap of Newton, who promptly shoved Archer off in order to demonstrate the Law of Gravity to the surrounding mall shoppers’ gaping wonder, and I’ll leave what happened to Kona and Umeboshi to your imaginations.

Also, I’m still looking for English language forum boards that discuss the series or themes similar to the manga I have worked on that aren’t run by administrators who are trying to profit off other people’s work, or committing double standards in regards to whose copyright should be respected. Most of the users in the Japanese communities I visit abhor those kinds of sites. So, even if I didn’t take issue with their policies, I would feel guilty visiting those sites regardless. I spent a lot of time vainly trying to see if I could find a good one, but it seems most sites suffer from the above, or have some other problem (i.e. inactive like Mr. Sleep’s forum board). The closest I could find is this 4chan archive service provided by Foolrulez, which is really cool. But that’s only useful for reading, rather than participating. The archive reminded me, did you know that Boukun Tyrano-san has a second chapter? The compilation was only printed once, so I wasn’t able to snag a copy years ago. I assumed that the latter half of it would be some other one-shot, but apparently it’s a second chapter that depicts the aftermath of the dinosaur mental invasion with Kana not quite recovering from the ordeal after the first chapter.

Anyway, there’s 4 chapters of Koi Neko and 5 chapters of Greed Packet Unlimited sitting in the proofreading stage. Greed Packet’s 9th chapter is 1/3 complete.

@Seraphic Mist: I just noticed Ichinensei was removed from Batoto due to it not meeting their advertisers’ policies. Looking at the conditions, all characters visually or described as 17 years-old or younger depicted sexually in any way isn’t allowed. Wouldn’t that exclude Greed Packet Unlimited from Batoto as well, since Nokia is definitely under 18 years-old (Nokia is 2 years-old)? Then again, I noticed To Love Ru Darkness on Batoto, which has people under the age of 18 fondling and masturbating each other and whatnot, so I don’t know. Well, regardless, thank you for your efforts.

@sandor: You should do some more analysis. I find it interesting, even if I can’t think of anything to say in regards to it.

@moejedi: Your guess is as good as mine. I figure Ichinensei will continue until Masakazu-sensei takes an arrow to his knee. Figuratively.

@Mat: Happy Holidays to you as well.

Greed Packet Unlimited v01 ch01 v2.1
Special thanks to Umeboshi for the additional suggestions and translation corrections for this chapter. Unfortunately, Umeboshi hasn’t responded to my e-mail since October, so I’m unsure how to proceed with ch4-5.

The plot thickens. Next time, Iori finds out what his classmates thought happened to him.

@sandor: If you look at the top-left corner, you’ll notice that it’s supposed to be “1+7=8″. Ichinensei is full of mistakes like that.
