Read on BLなう!

Apologies for the wait! This came out in the middle of winter break, so we were slower in getting to it than usual. Hope you enjoy! This was a GOOD one 8D

In keeping with our policy of not scanlating licensed material, we’ll be doing detailed summaries of future SekaKoi 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!

When what was supposed to be a quick item exchange between Ritsu and Haitani turns into something much more, Takano finds himself desperate for some reassurance of his place in Ritsu’s heart.

Title:
Onodera Ritsu no Baai vol 9 extras
Series: Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi
Author/Circle: Nakamura Shungiku
Rating: PG
Language: English
Download: Mirror 1, Mirror 2
Notes: These are the extras that were released with Onodera Ritsu no Baai, 9 recently. Now, a warning: this is not the entire booklet. The booklet was almost ENTIRELY the manga version of the Valentine’s Day shorts included with the Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai movie…and we’ve already translated those. So we’re not going to redo stuff that we’ve already done, even if it’s a manga version XD; We’ve got enough on our plate for the time being that we don’t really have time to go back and clean and typeset stuff we’ve already provided. If someone else wants to do them, they’re more than welcome!

What this DOES include is: the one bit of new ‘extra’ from that booklet (Ritsu and Takano on White Day, a month later) as well as the short omake Kisa Shouta no Baai 6 and the under-cover comic. Enjoy!

Also please remember: we aren’t scanlating this series in full. We’ll still do these little random extras, but for whole chapters, we’ll be switching to detailed, image-heavy summaries! Novel translations will continue on as planned.
