Now he's in on his little sister's secret, which is that she models for magazines to get money to feed her erotic anime "little sister"-themed game addiction.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
My favorite of this bunch was probably Goshimei Desu/Apple (Apple is an extra story in the volume). I'm not really sure I buy the author's insistence that she was writing for boys, since it was sort of like a chick flick, but the stories were pretty entertaining! Chikara no Arika also stood out to me, though it was a bit on the emo side. I kind of wish it were not complete, because there were a fair number of things that I felt were not explained at the end. Soleil seemed like it could be interesting, but it feels extremely slow paced. Ore no imouto wa konna ni kawaii wake ga nai was fairly strange, but seemed to me like it could be really funny if they don't dive off the fan service deep end later on.
Only two series really interested me. Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai seems kind of interesting seems it focuses on a girl liking ero-games, although if it's too fanservice-y, then I'd probably get bored with it... The other one that seems kind of interesting is SOLIEL, mainly due to the fact that it's from the mangaka duo that did Jouou. If you want more of the newly made anime Baka to Test, then you should check out the new 4koma (along with the regular manga series) which is currently being scanlated.

Translated items that need some love/scanlation:
Katatonia - Kinnikuman Nisei: Kyūkyoku no Chōjin Tag Hen: Chapter 1 (Need TLC/Proofread)

Mr. Prince - Oumagadoki Doubutsuen: One-shot (PM Mr.Prince for raw)
yukihito - Hakuouki Jurenka: Chapter 1
yukihito - Uta no Prince-sama: Chapter 1
shadow-skill - Der Ring des Nibelungen - Siegfried: Chapter 1

Totally like your shout-out this month! Just a bit surprised that Shinjo Mayu is writing for a shonen crowd for Goshimei. It's so unlike her and the bishie for henew volume looks really hot. Wish she can go back to her shoujo/smut genre though. :)

No ravfar, that info is related to the light novels. Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai in manga has only one tankoubon so far, and it's NOT complete, as it's marked here.
