[Tanemura Arina]  ARINA NO TANE (有菜の種) / Seed of Arina / Arinas Sammelsurium
This is a special from the well known author of Fullmoon wo Sagashite &
Kamikaze Kaito Jeanne among others.
It's about the start of her: career, day to day live, likings, fears, friends,
holidays & average chapter creation all in a cute slice of life manga
about herself (in chibi form).
It also includes chapters describing the creation of the
intro music accompanied with a 4panelgag-like part.
I really enjoyed reading it but became rather disappointed when
looking online I found very little: MAL hasn't got a review and when
searching with google and here i didn't find anything about it
it's not even listed under her works on wikipedia I didn't
find any chapters either so if it's OK i will upload a few pages
I scanned and translated from my german volume besides that
Password is: ARINA.rAr
so far i got 9 pages the back/preview and the essay - contents page translated:
the manga is 181 pages total +10commercials, cover, back/preview & reading direction advice (460MB as PNG)

Added a few translated pages to give you a better idea about the manga
discovered a few errors after uploading themfixed, well enjoy the art.
German Volume + 16 cleaned and 14 translated pages are online
PM me for the link
quality is 300dpi png, further translation will take a while
I'll see what I can do in about a week...
The link provided in the first post is just a teaser
so the images were downscaled by the website...
btw. if anyone could send me a link to an English version
that I can order online that might help I couldn't find
a version at amazon looking for Seed of Arina & Arina the Seed.
I would debind it for better scanlation quality and to spare myself
the translation effort just giving that a thougt...
Well looks like it hasn't been released in English
at least that's what a nice someone who PM'd me and
asked for the volume wrote, just sent her the link
to it right now since she offered to do the cleaning
more infos in a little more than a week...
So I dug a little deeper into the GER yet no ENG release:
German Volume on Tokyopops website:
Infos abou Arina & her releases by TP
and the Eng. website of TP
I don't know why but for some reason they don't
do Arina's works in English probably license related
anyway if someone with Arina's English Volumes
contacts the firms listed in the copyright info maybe
a nice little letter gets them to do it hell you might
even suggest kickstarter to them for that...
I did a little more googling so that I may find a JAP scanlation
the links I found where dead, still here is a preview if
you want to know how the orginal thing looks like:
Also found this, it has Arina's self-portrait on it, anyone care to explain?:
