Wombs v1 (last updated June. 30)

New SF-series that Happyscans and I are picking up because it's short and has an interesting premise. Thanks to the guy on /a/ for recommending it. I won't say anymore because it'll be more interesting if you go into it blind. Although I prefer to do volume releases, I have a few other projects I also want to do so I'm going to take my time and do weekly releases (or maybe once every other week).

Historie 96

Poor Eumenes...

Also, I know I've been quiet for the whole month, but that doesn't mean I haven't been translating stuff. I should be releasing a 1-volume project... probably next week, as well as releasing something Tezuka-related. So check back next weekend.

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of historical manga. Yokoyama Mitsuteru is one mangaka near and dear to my heart for his works in this genre. As I've noted before, he has a dry, almost laconic, narrative style where the actions speak louder than words, and the driving motives of characters are only shown a few times in the story. And then there's Yasuhiko Yoshikazu. He too, like Yokoyama, is a man who has decided to specialize in historically-themed works in the latter half of his career. However in style, he's the polar opposite of Yokoyama. Yasuhiko's characters are extremely expressive and flowery dialogue is not uncommon. And unlike Yokoyama's preference for an orthodox approach to telling history, Yasuhiko prefers to tell history in ways it often is not.

Jurassic Academy

Got sent raws for a quirky oneshot by Kobori Makoto that serialized in Evening. Only 7 pages long, so why not, especially when it's got dinosaurs?

My Name is Nero vol.1

Happy Mother's Day! And what better way to celebrate Mother's day than with a tale of an emperor famous for killing his mother? Enjoy the first volume. The final second volume should come before the month's end. I'll do a longer write-up on Nero to go along with that post. Also a thanks goes out to Shoujomagic who scanlated the first chapter many, many years ago.

Historie c95

It's time for a new chapter of Historie, hurray! Quite a fun chapter for military history nerds. Iwaaki/Eumenes came up with one interesting theoretical way to solve the inherent weakness of the Greek and Macedonian phalanx.

On another note, I am currently working on My Name is Nero, but progress is a little slow at present as other things have sidetracked me as of late. But there definitely will be one full volume of Nero or some other project coming out in May so look forward to it!

Here it is, the final act in Usamaru Furuya's bloody tragedy, volume 3 of Innocent Children's Crusade! Much thanks goes to Kennit for doing a fantastic job with the cleaning and typesetting. He definitely put in a lot more effort than I would have, had I tried to do this alone. Now as requested by a few people, I'm going to try to do a Some Thoughts post for all the new projects I pick up from now on, so as to explain why I thought a particular work was interesting enough to bother translating.
