- The name of the manga series
- A summary of the series

Another slow 2 weeks. However, I would really love love LOVE
if someone would translate/scanlate Mahou no Iroha
, which is done by the mangaka of Ai Kora
and Midori no Hibi
. I'm also going to check out Liar Game - Roots of A
since I like Liar Game
. Check it out if you like a nice psychological series, although you might be turned off a bit by the art. If you like shoujo, be sure to check out Diamond of Heart
In scanlation news, once again no one has scanlated the Rico one-shot
despite it being translated by 2 translators so check out the translations from AyameForPresident
and give them a nice thanks for their translations. Why is it not getting any love? >_< Two stories of Boku wa Onna no Ko
which was translated by boke
have yet to scanlated, and the first chapter of Jio to Ougon to Kinjirareta Mahou
was translated by Elkin
in hopes of a translator picking up this series. Previous shout-out, Sanjin Sadou
has been translated by new translator livyatan
and prolific new translator Lucifell
has caught up and translated the first 4 chapters of Upotte!
. Check out the scanlation of Love Zero
, which was also translated by him and which just had its first chapter scanlated.
