That second page is about the next edition of Jump SQ. I only read DGM, but it looks like To Love Ru - Darkness.
yay, i liked this oneshot. Her draws was beautiful. Now it's like a little shoujo. Hoshino sensei is awesome <3
Thanks for posting the raw and the images~
I know it's a bit cheeky. But is there any chance that someone could upload this to another download provider like megaupload or something? The other one is playing silly buggers with me and only lets you download once per day.
Here you are: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=FMHCVGZD
(editing now that I've looked at it) This is gonna sound odd but I'm honestly impressed that Hoshino depicted the main heroine as chunky o-o either that or Lenalee and the other DGM girls need to eat a sandwich STAT.
Can't say much for the plot(lulz) but I found the art in some of the panels to be a little cluttered. I suppose it's hard trying to get everything down in one chapter. Over all nicely drawn as always, what else would I expect from Hoshino.

(the ones who have come close have just been because of the artist's "chunky" style, not because she's supposed to be a "chunky" character... xD). This was really refreshing! And I like the character already(just from the RAW), she reminds me of a friend of mine x) Lol, many skinny girls(and boys) in DGM for sure, but at least we have Cash Dopp
It's interesting to see Hoshino's artwork in a different setting(than the DGM-ish one), she has more "freedom" to play around more with her style ^^ I love it! Hope someone will translate it
Hahahahha! I had also realized the change! But it's good to see it, I mean, it reflects better how not all people are thin or skinny. It's more real.
@ relory: yes, Cash... Oh and there was another one (the woman left to Peck), one of the order's new assistants but she only appeared once, I think.
I'm going to read (well, see it's more correct) the raw. Hey! Haven't you noticed that in the left image (where we can see that strange boy? with the girl) is the same/similar to one of the extras of DGM Vol. 20 where chibi Kanda and Alma were together? Oh, Hoshino!!!
I was personally hoping to catch a glimpse of Yoshi XD
Kanda looks so creepy when he smiles.
Got the oneshot downloading, I have no idea what to expect of it.... soup and space monsters?
Wow... O__o Just skimming through all the pages, I'd have to say that I half-expected it to end up like this, but at the same time, not like this!! o___O Interesting that Hoshino chose a not so skinny person, indeed, to be one of the main characters. I get the gist without translating, that this is like a flashback story telling us how she became a "super hero", by being at the right place at the right time. She helped out that odd super-hero guy, who seems to be half-shy. But ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... Hoshino is trolling me with the soba shops...AGAIN!!!!
This time, the soba shop is like a hero HQ. I'm just briefly translating something on page 27, after the shop owner was impressed by the main heroine's super strength.
Kamearijuumin Kazuyo oba-chan (the shop owner/auntie): "If....If that's the case, Birobaya-chan.. Do you want to become a part of my [hero] team!?"
Since I don't have time to fully translate this (---sorryyy >_<---), hopefully someone of any forum is up to the task. This looks like a really fun one-shot, although, I'm not crazy about the fan-service, but it's shounen so there's nothing that can be done about that. =.= ^__^ Funny how the main male character's design is like a cross between Link and Allen in some ways...
Soba... I still wanna see Kanda owning a soba shop or I'll just doushinji (fan make) it myself.
Edit: Belated quick fix to oba-san's name. I decided to stick all four kanji together rather than separate them. (Since, most traditional Japanese names do not have middle names.)

the boy reminds me Kanda ) and i'm love with the protagonist, hoshino drew her very well. I don't know about her personality (because i don't know japanese ¬¬) but seems to be very funny D
Well, when I first laid eyes on the male main char I thought of Link for some odd reason, idk. xD
There's manga (or was it manhwa?) with a chubby heroine but I forgot the name.
