Release #35 2019 & Merry Christmas
Hello, I’m back again with a bumper release to close out the year with a BANG! This will be the last release of 2019, I just had my last exams of the year last week and will be on my holidays until next year.
This year has definitely been quite a fruitful year in terms for this site. While there’s still plenty of catching up to do, we’ve also released plenty of chapters. Not bad for a small unit of 4, where a lot of time it’s just one or two of us doing the work too on the chapters. All in all, I think we did a great job.
First off is a oneshot from ‘Morning’ titled ‘Olanda-san.’ This is a semi-fictitious short intersecting famous Polish Martyr, St. Maximillian Kolbe and a fictitious Japanese boy prior to the Nagasaki Bombing.
I find this short interesting because history is a fascination to me even though I rarely translate anything historial. This is also because the author, Maruo Suehiro, while probably not that well known in the English manga reader circle, (unless you are into niche gore stuff), is quite famous in Japan with a cult following. A lot of his art, especially the gore stuff, have quite the surreal artistic chic to it.

Yes, it’s finally here! Sorry for the long, long wait! OTL with the chapters in this release, we bid goodbye to volume 1. (One down, many more to go, lol)
Here, we get the conclusion of ‘The Teahouses’ Secret” and a special omake chapter befitting the current season.
Lastly, a new manga title that nobody thinks I need, but what the hell, I did it anyway… (One word, CATS) So, more cat manga!
This is a short episodic manga about this OL (Office Lady) and her daily lives with her three cats. While I don’t live alone with cats, my family, we are a bunch of cat lovers, especially my dad, (who, to be honest is kinda getting out of hand) the cat maniac, and we have 11 cats at home. So, while translating this, I can definitely recognise all the dastardly behaviour of these cats and more in the story (:D)
So, to start this off with a bang, TEN CHAPTERS for you all to enjoy. That’s more than half the first volume covered. Have fun!

Please help stream the above mv on youtube to 40m (we are almost there! 39M-ish) So I can get to watch EXO’s Obsession dance practice video (SM Ent promised to release the dance practice vid if the MV hits 40M). Help a girlfriend out here.
And with this, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! See you in 2020!
