    WSJ Pirate Samurai Usagi by Teppei Fukushima

    I was looking and I realized there wasn't a thread for this greatly overlooked Jump series. Samurai Usagi started last year in Jump. For some reason, no one has bothered to scanlate this series even though it is a fighting series which is very unique and has lasted through the year (Although I don't know if it will last a lot longer due to the strong newcomers). This is the story synopsis taken from Wikipedia:

    Quote Quote:
    A jidaigeki ("period drama") revolving around a fifteen-year-old low-level samurai and his wife.

    The manga portrays the Edo period from a low-level samurai's perspective, and is skeptical of the Samurai Code used by high-level samurai to impose norms and reinforce their own authority. The values of people the hero meets are deeply examined, bringing hidden aspect to light, which are used to poke fun, as plot twists, or occasionally as the source of conflict. This structure is supported by the extensive use of contemporary Japanese youth slang in dialogue. Generally, the story advances through the hero's monologues. The hero's serious monologues do not use slang to make a contrast with the dialogue of other characters.

    Although Edo period customs are occasionally explained, for a manga dealing with samurai the swordsmanship portrayed in Samurai Usagi varies from actual sword-fighting techniques. Also, some samurai characters do not wear their hair in a topknot. Although it lacks in authenticity and accuracy, the flavor of the Edo period is preserved.

    The hero and heroine being married from the beginning of the story is highly unusual for youth-oriented manga.
    As you can see below, it has a pretty unique art style. I personally am very interested in this series, but nobody has been interested in it enough to scanlate it sadly. Maybe this will change.

    And I apologize dor the large images. I don't know how to make them thumbnails.

    added the spoiler tags for you. Spoiler tags [*spoiler]text/image/etc[*/spoiler] without the* ~koenosaki

    If I remember correctly, it wasn't the full chapter. I didn't have the raw of the first chapter to link to either. Maybe you could help me out. I did do a request....no one responded.

    It's okay. I could understand if you never get around to it. It looks like it might die soon anyway. It's such a pity. I really wish someone picked this up. T_T

    Re: Samurai Usagi by Teppei Fukushima

    It's such an odd, quirky little series. I've been thinking that it doesn't really belong in Jump, but is more suited for a magazine like Morning. I've been reading the tankoubon, and it starts out going in one direction, but in the more recent ones I can almost see the manga-ka struggling to make it more Jump-like... but it doesn't really fit with the kind of story he's trying to tell in the beginning.

    Have you read a lot of the raws? I really want to know what it's like if you could give an overview of plot and events. I don't really mind spoilers, because I'd doubting I will ever get to read it. T_T

    Please if anyone has any tanko raws that they're willing to share with us, please scan them so we can translate and scanlate the series.

    I really am interested in this series, It's such a pity that is was overlooked and underrated.

    Maybe if haya5h1 had time, he would be nice to scan the tanks for us?

    but of course we can't force him but I have given up reading (if you call it that way, let's say looking) the raws because no scans/trans came out

    I can always only find recent chapters. It's a shame. This is like the only big newer Jump series not being scanlated.

    Re: Samurai Usagi by Teppei Fukushima

    so no one have scan/translated this series at all? I would be best if there were raws. Maybe you should surf 2ch for anyone who has the raws or buy the tankobon yourself and scan them. It looks pretty good, so if no one is interested in it I can trans for 1 ch. per week pace

    It's at the stage now where someone would do well to just buy the volumes online and scan them in themselves. I was thinking of doing that at any rate, just still not so sure if this series is worth it!
