Just to clear up some confusion here: Kanda Neko’s work depicting the story of Saki and Jun, which we’re publishing here as ‘Otokogokoro’ is split up over a series of three books: Otokogokoro (2 chapters), Koibitogokoro (6 chapters [4 chapters and 1 split into 2 parts] + omake), and Koigokoro (2 chapters + omake).
Despite the fact that these chapters show up in different volumes, we’re calling the entire series ‘Otokogokoro’, because it’s just easier that way. This series is not like the Mujihi na~ series where each book is more or less self-contained, with its own storyline separate from the others. There is nothing separating these three books other than seemingly arbitrary decisions on which chapters to include where, so there’s no real ‘reason’ to confuse readers by splitting them up, we decided.
However, whoever’s been kindly updating our mangaupdates profile for us doesn’t seem to have realized this is what we’re doing XD; and has labeled these previous releases as chapters 3 and 4 of the book ‘Otokogokoro’. While yes, that’s what we’re calling them, that’s not what the chapters are actually (you can even see we started using a new cover–the one from Koibitogokoro–for chapter 3), and it makes it seem as if we’ve done the actual 3rd chapter that comes in the book Otokogokoro (we haven’t; that’s a completely unrelated one-shot). This could mislead others who might want to do those other one-shots in Otokogokoro into thinking those stories have been done, when in fact they have not.
So in other words: please be more careful when you update our mangaupdates page, guys XD; We’ve been trying to correct the issue, but every time we do, someone goes back in and UN-corrects it :P We appreciate you being vigilant and on top of things, but in this case, you’re doing a bit more harm than good XD;
Peace out :D The next chapter will be a two-parter!
