Compared to our last few Christmas releases, this one is rather underwhelming with only 39 chapters spread over four volumes. Unfortunately, since our anniversary release we’ve all had our share of stuff keeping us busy in real life. We’re hoping to have our annual “hangover” release in a week or so. If everything goes to plan, and if you know me, it never does, then we should have approximately 4 volumes worth of stuff ready then as well. After that release, I’ll make one of my “project status” posts.
First, a big big biiiig thank you to xyz85-mvb9 and Phaedris for doing a lot of the grunt work for these releases. If they hadn’t been around, we wouldn’t have any releases today. Seriously, none. Zero, nilch. So I owe these two a great deal of gratitude.
Holyland v15 (!Holy15 or !HL15) – Big, big thank you to Laika for translating this volume.
Koukou Tekken-den Tough v16-17 (!Tough16 !Tough17 or !KKT16 !KKT17) – Volume 16 & 17 concludes the Muay-Thai arc of the series, and leads into one of my favorite volumes of the series. If there are some of you who’ve read the sequel to Koukou Tekken-den Tough, you might recognize someone at the end of v17.
Also, unless someone volunteers to do Koukou Tekken-den Tough’s redraws, we’ll be taking a small break from it. xyz85-mvb9 has been slaving away at the last four volumes with some help from Phaedris on some redraws.
So if you want to do some redraws on Koukou Tough, PM me or Nitouryu on IRC (Or email me) and we’ll give you a test. If you can pass this test, then we can continue the project. And depending on how fast you are, we can possibly get the ball rolling fast because I can translate a full volume of over a weekend. Just saying.
Shiba Inu (!Shiba or !Inu) – This is a collection of oneshots from Masanori Morita, the mangaka of Rookies and Rokudenashi Blues. He is, in my opinion, one of the most overlooked and underrated mangakas around. The two part oneshot named Shiba Inu are superb and I recommend you all download and read.
I hope you enjoy.
Have some happy holidays and stuff. `-‘)
