Series: Black Wolf and Silver Fox
Download: Mirror 1, Mirror 2
Notes: So, for some reason, while the chapter says “Chapter 2” (with a numeral and all), it ends with the words “The End”, and is listed on the official website as “Final Chapter”. This is pretty baffling to us, as 2-part stories are usually listed as “First half/Last half”, not numbered as if there will be many chapters. This was Inose’s first piece in Ciel, so it’s possible this was an experiment, and depending on response, it will continue. The story wraps up reasonably well, but it very much feels like just the beginning of the story. We prefer doing longer stories where our readers can get more invested, so we likely wouldn’t have picked this up if we’d known it would end with just two chapters. We’ll keep you updated if it continues, but for now, please enjoy!
Series: Love Stage
Author/Circle: Eiki Eiki and Zaou Taishi
Summary: Izumi and Ryouma finally start their married life together, but there may be dark clouds on the horizon…!
Read on BLなう!
In keeping with our policy of not scanlating licensed material, we’ll be doing detailed summaries of future LS!! manga chapters instead of scanlations. There’s no reason you guys should have to wait 2-3 years to see what happens next just because a company licensed the manga, and without ongoing updates like this, your interest in the series is likely to wane, meaning you won’t be interested in picking up those volumes! So we’re doing this as a service to keep interest alive while balancing our desire to encourage people who can buy the manga to do so. We’ll be giving super detailed summaries, complete with lots of images (all the best ones, so you’re not missing any big gems ;)), so if for whatever reason you won’t be able to purchase this when it’s officially available in English, you’ll still be just as informed as everyone else!
In related news: This issue of Ciel had a new chapter of Black Wolf and Silver Fox (FINALLY!), so we’ll have that out for you soon, as well as new chapters of Kimi to Kore Kara and Kitto Kiss wo Suru Toki!
Title: Pinky Promise with My Boyfriend the King (part 2 of 2)
Pairing: Kageyama Tobio/Hinata Shouyou
Summary: Kageyama can’t stand the thought of anyone taking Hinata from him, so he seals their relationship by demanding Hinata start dating him. Hinata agrees, if only because explaining that Kageyama has just imprinted on him would be too difficult. As time passes, though, Hinata realizes they’ll need to set some ground rules.
Notes: Apologies for the wait! We’ve been absolutely swamped, and this is terribly long, so we hope it was worth the wait. Thanks for your patience, and enjoy!!
Please upload more mirrors in the comments :D
HOPE YOU’RE AS EXCITED FOR SEASON 2 AS WE ARE!
Also, exciting news! Bubunhanten, it seems, will be publishing her first official manga in the next issue of Rutile (which we use to scanlate Konya mo Nemurenai) out in November. We’re 95% sure it’s her, since the author is listed as the same name that Bubunhanten goes by in more official capacities, and we’ll definitely be checking it out. If it looks interesting, we’ll definitely pick it up, so look forward to that in November!
Title: Onodera Ritsu no Baai ch. 21
Series: Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi
Author/Circle: Nakamura Shungiku
Series: O-mairi Desu Yo ~ A Blessing On Your House!
Author/Circle: Yamamoto Kotetsuko
Download: Mirror 1, Mirror 2
Notes: Yamamoto-sensei will take a break for next month’s issue of Gush and then be back the first week of November with new Honto Yajuu! Please remember that HY and Omairi run in the same magazine. That means when one is running, the other is on a break. I can’t tell you how many times we get people asking us why we haven’t updated HY when there’s clearly Omairi being released, and it gets very annoying, even though we say it over and over again. Likewise, we cannot scanlate what doesn’t exist, so we really don’t appreciate the people yelling at us for ‘getting their hopes up’ about a series that hasn’t been updated (our new series from Ciel, Black Wolf and Silver Fox). We don’t appreciate people telling us off for not updating something that hasn’t had a new chapter in a couple of issues :| We can’t predict this. We can’t magically pick series we know will have regular updates. So please stop sending us irrational hatemail for it :| It really doesn’t make us want to release something even if we did have more material.
Same goes for other series we’re doing: we’re SWAMPED with work, both IRL and for this group. Unless you’re offering to help us (and as always, we only need experienced, reliable cleaners), please sit back and be patient as we try with our teeny tiny staff to get you stuff for free. If you’re dissatisfied with our release rates…go learn Japanese yourself and buy these pieces :P
Most of your readers are really great people, but in the past couple of weeks we’ve gotten some really rude, demanding, entitled e-mails, so we’re just reminding everyone: we’re doing this for free, taking time out of our lives to share stuff we love with everyone else. We’ll get around to all of the things we have on our plates just as soon as we can. Until then, please be patient.

Notes: This one-shot is the very first instance of Haikyuu!! ever! It’s rough, it’s unpolished, the team name isn’t even the same, but here you can see the very first appearances of Hinata, Kageyama, Tanaka, and Daichi, and how Hinata comes to play volleyball for Karas–erm, I mean Hiashi High School!
This manga was really difficult to come by and cost a pretty penny to obtain. As such, we’re asking for donations to help offset the crazy costs @___@ We purchased this as part of a set with Prototype B (which has already been scanlated by another group and involves a second-year Tsukishima, if you recall; this prototype manga came first and is even further removed from the final canon), so if you’re interested in helping us pay it off, please head over to Shoptember and purchase however many units’ worth you’d like to buy ^^ This is ONLY a donation; you won’t receive anything for it, I’m afraid ^^
However, we do have both magazines and are more than willing to part with them! I’d you’d like one (or both), the cost will depend on how much is left to pay off (so if there are 40 units left, the 2 magazines are $20 each [2 x $20 = $40]). Please get in touch with us if you’d like to own a piece of HQ history :D
This piece was REALLY difficult to clean, as these magazine scans were TERRIBLE quality, but the final product is amazing thanks to the crazy skills and hard work of Kurumi, without whose help we probably would have been too ashamed to share this @__@ Please give her ALL the praise! She’s going to help us bring Bubunhanten’s summer Comiket conclusion to her Pinky Promise piece as well, so look for that next!
