Read on BLなう!

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!

We will still be scanlating the following: Manga “extras” included with tankoubon releases, omake comics at the end of the novels we translate, any extra random comics unrelated to full chapter releases.

We know some of you may feel disappointed with this, but as you’ve seen, we’ve got huge targets on our back for one, and it doesn’t sit right with us to be in “competition” with official licensors for another, so this is our final decision, and we hope you guys can respect it and still enjoy what we do bring you!

Now, get to reading! A lot of huge bombshells were dropped this chapter!

As a note, BLなう also includes a shop to help direct you places to purchase the magazines that all titles in BLなう run in, so check it out!

Fans of Free! may be familiar with these novels, and since I’ve already posted these to tumblr some time back, I figured I’d go ahead and post them here, since many don’t seem familiar with them.

For those of you new to the series or unfamiliar with these novels, the High Speed! novels by Ouji Koji are what Free! is based on. Volume 1 covers 12-year-old Rin’s transfer to Iwatobi and convincing Haru, Makoto, and Nagisa to form a relay team with him, culminating with their race and Rin’s departure for Australia. Volume 2 takes place 3 months later as Haru and Makoto enter middle school and deals largely with their forming a relay team with new friends, as well as touching on Nagisa’s struggles as he’s still in elementary school and Rin’s issues in Australia. Yamazaki Sousuke, a prominent character in Season 2 of the Free! anime, plays a large part in Volume 2.

While I haven’t translated these novels, I did write up detailed summaries with many select passages translated, so you can view then in PDF format for easy reading!

(of note, the HS2 summary is a bit sparser than 1, because I had less time and interest in being SUPER detailed; also, volume 2 was a LOT longer than volume 1, so I had less time and rushed through a lot of it, leaving only the largest, most important details of the book).

Enjoy!

Back Stage!!
Series: Love Stage!!
Author/Circle: Eiki Eiki, Amano Kazuki
Rating: NC-17
Language: English
This time: We posted the summary of Chapter 7 when it ran in TresTres some time back, but now that Volume 3 has been released, we’re here with the rest of the whole book, which is a single chapter (8). This summary is reeeaaally long, so set aside some time to enjoy! Also includes pictures from the novel (including one for Chapter 7 that was newly added). There is also a MANGA OMAKE that we’ll be getting out probably tomorrow, along with the extra that came with Love Stage!! volume 3 as well. Love Stage!! chapter 17 was recently released also, but it’ll take a little bit more time to get that to you. Look forward to it!
