    Tegami Bachi
    By: Asada Hiroyuki
    Genre: Action, Fantasy, Steampunk

    Tegami Bachi (or Letter Bees) are couriers that deliver important letters and packages throughout the land of eternal dusk, Amber Ground.

    The story revolves around Lag Seeing, a young boy who was born on The Day of Flicker, 12 years ago when the man-made sun went down for unknown reasons. The manga follows his ambition to become a Letter Bee and how he follows the path of his idol Gauche Suede who went missing...

    I've picked up the first two volumes in Japanese, and the art style is very pretty indeed. I'd love to see this series get scanlated. ^_^

    Well, Asakura asked me to do it a long while ago, but he didn't give me raws for it ^^"

    The first chapter is 120 pages...

    Re: Tegami-bachi

    It seems- without me having hammered out a full translation, but just by skimming- to be about a boy named Lagu/Ragu, whose goal is to become a tegamibachi- a "letter bee", or someone whose purpose is to deliver important mail. Hereafter, I'm calling him Lagu, because Ragu reminds me of pasta. >_> In any case, when he was quite young, he was befriended by one of the tegamibachi and he was so down upon his luck and so grateful for the attention and help that he wanted to do the same when he got older.

    This backstory takes up most of the first volume, but toward the end is several years later, when he meets a young girl named Nicchi who's being kept prisoner; she is not human, and presumed dangerous. At first, he takes on the task of delivering her as a "package" as he's asked- but in the end, they give the people who'd kept her there their just desserts and take to traveling together. In the second volume, he and Nicchi go about attempting to make sure a particularly important letter gets where it needs to be.

    Since it's a Jump series, there's of course weird magic and monsters and lots of action in addition to the pretty art. ^_^

    I can share pictures, but I haven't got a scanner so I can't provide raws. >:




    Volume one cover.

    Volume two cover.

    Lagu is saved in the first volume by his role model.

    But he grows up to be pretty cool in his own right.

    Later, Nicchi finally gives Lagu her name.

    And finally, Nicchi watches the memories of Lagu's (angsty) childhood.

    Re: Tegami-bachi

    thats probably a question best made for the raw request thread.

    either way, i think this must be pretty popular, to make it to jump^2

    If there aren't any raws for this, then I might get volumes 1 and 2 to scan (hopefully soon when my scanner is fixed).

    If you plan on scanning #1, then I'll go forth in scanning #2 (when my scanner is replaced)
