Summary: Oda and Hasegawa are childhood friends bound by a very special secret: Oda’s a third-generation pig farmer on a farm that raises FLYING PIGS. But when a nosy reporter starts investigating tales of upward-mobile porkers in the area, the two must band together (and thereby grow closer in doing so) to protect Oda’s family’s livelihood as well as the good-luck-giving swine.

  50. Thank you!:D

  51. omg this looks

  52. omg this looks SO CUTE!!! right up my alley, i love “childhood friends that fall in love” stories!!!!! *^_^* THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN <3

  53. Thank you guys for picking it up. Actually, I became a fan of this mangaka some time ago and wished to be able to read this work in any langauge I know, which is unfortunately not Chinese and my Japanese is still beginners level. Thanks again. I truly appreciate!

  54. Yaaay! I’ve wanted to read this for a while! Thanks so much! I’m super excited! ^^

  55. Flying pigs….


  56. AWW this is so cute!!! i love this artist! thank you so much!

  57. I guess flying pigs are a tad too silly for me. :0

  58. New series! Thank you so much! You guys rock as usual <3

  59. hazydawn,

    o_O Really? THAT’S what you’re taking out of this? The story is sweet, the pigs are adorable (there’s really only one you see a lot, because it becomes like a pet), and this book actually breaks the traditional BL mold given the balance between focusing on plot (oftentimes not related to the farm at all) and the relationship rather than being solely about relationship drama.

    To dismiss this as ‘too silly’ because you think it’s some goofy gag manga about flying pigs is more ridiculous than the premise itself :/

  60. <3 <3 <3 I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS! THIS IS THE MOST EXCITING NEWS I HAVE SEEN IN A LONG, LONG WHILE! (I admit that the BL I want to read always tend to fall in my lap, but this is just so, so, so AWESOME!)

    Some time ago I bought the original, because I fell in love with it while I was searching for non-scanlated projects of Moto Haruko. And I SO WANTED SOMEONE TO SCANLATE this! So much that it feels like a dream! When I saw the email I was like: NOOOOO WAAAAAAAAY DID I REALLY JUST SEE THAT? I almost got a heart attack;P teehee~

    Really, thanks a lot guys! I'm honestly happy right now!^^ Do you have any plans for other titles of hers?

  61. Nana,

    Some of her titles like “Koketsu Dining” are already being handled by other groups, and unfortunately many of her titles are published by Libre, which are known to be very strict with scanlations and so we won’t touch anything released by them. I’m quite fond of her stories and style, though, so she’s one we’ll be keeping an eye on in the future ^^

  62. Thank you guys so much for the new series!

  63. “upward-mobile porkers”

    omg that’s adorable

    Thanks for the release!

  64. OMG: I love this mangaka! Thanks so much!!!

  65. Thank you for scanlating this!
    Oh gosh, I love both the main characters! (Especially the tall one whom I guess who will be the seme?)
    The flying pigs were beyond cute and I love the addition of the 3rd wheel character! haha :)
    I also really love her drawing style! It sort of reminds me of a cross between Ogura Muku x Junko x Yamamoto K. sensei~ That’s just what I think anyway! Anyway, it gives me a similar feeling when reading their manga which always manages to make me love them from the start Maybe it’s because they create characters which people can like so easily; I don’t know. :)

    I hope maybe in the near future you guys will perhaps decide to pick up more of her stuff even though most of them are under Libre, which is close to frustrating. I guess I need to study harder at Japanese and buy her actual stuff! :) Thank you again!

  66. fencer_x,

    Ah, yes, I know:) She’s one of my favourites, so I’m keeping track of her as much as I can^^ I was referring to the non-Libre non-scanlated titles, which, admittedly, are not that many:/

    In any case, I’m glad you guys are working on this! Hope you’ll be able to work on more in the future!^^

  67. if you are translating it, obvliusly i’m gonna read it!
    All the stories you choose are really the best (Y) keep the hard work!
