And here's chapters 10 and 11
of the official Suikoden I: Soul Eater novel compiled for your reading pleasure! It's super satisfying to get these posted after so long. We're finally a bit further through the Great Forest!

I've been having some fun relaxing and kicking back with volume two of the official Suikoden I: Soul Eater novel! Catch the new pages on my translation tumblr
page, with more on the way! ;)

Hey! Sometimes you wait six years, sometimes you wait six days! Never know what'll come outta old Ramsus-kun. Ta-daah! Here's chapters 9 and 10 of the Suikoden V anthology manga, by Sakuraguni and Takasato Michi! (Did you know Suikoden V is thirteen this year?)
May 6th, 2019 (11:20pm)
I LIVE!! To celebrate, please enjoy this short chapter of the Suikoden V anthology manga. I did. Also! Witch Hat Atelier is totally out in English now!!! Please go buy it and support this awesome series! (Anybody notice how the official translation also spells a certain character's name with a "Q"? Heheheh...)

Heyo! Happily bringing you the next section of the D'arc manga! Badly in need of more proofreading for consistency, but at this point I figure it's better to get something out there then nothing! This project will be on hold, awaiting more scans, before translation can continue. Another huge thanks to Samara for taking on this typesetting project, too! As well as to Mat and Laika for all their assistance, and to Mars for scanning it in the first place. Attempted to upload the chapter to MangaDex but site's having bandwidth issues. Feel free to upload it there if anyone gets the chance. Thanks to those who signed the guestbook to let me know links are down or chapters are missing in older projects. Currently juggling a lot (including no longer having a disc drive, which makes accessing files burnt to DVD a bit more troublesome...) so may not get those links updated anytime soon, but I appreciate the notice. Take care, everybody, and have a good 2019!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Here's the final chapter of Yumi Tamura's Wangan Jungle
, "Jungle Box"! Thanks a million billion to Samara for volunteering to typeset this four year old translation that was just collecting dust on my shelf, and for doing a bang up job of it, too. A great way to wrap up 2018! (With a murder mystery!)
September 9th, 2018 (11:42am)
And here's chapter 8 of Dragon Quest! Also, for those interseted, Kurodahan Press is holding a translation contest (deadline is October 15, Japan time) for a short story: https://www.kurodahan.com/mt/e/khpprize/ Check 'em out if you're a budding translator! It's a lot of fun.
July 29th, 2018 (12:21pm)
Thanks to cp2's help typesetting, here's chapter 7 of Dragon Quest V: Tale of Heaven! It's been awhile, huh? I'm also working through D'arc, slowly but surely, and hope to release something for it before school starts up again in the fall. Fingers crossed!
July 7th, 2018 (10:08pm)
WOOHOO!! Kodansha has announced an official release of Witch Hat at last! So chapter 15 will be our last scanslation of this marvelous series. Please support Witch Hat and Shirahama-sensei both by buying the books when they come out in English! I've included PNGs of the rough translated script for chapters 16 and 17 in the direct download, too, for anyone who would like to read them. Chapter 17 is an especially good one. I'll be removing all links and downloads for Witch Hat mid-July, and ask that all other sites hosting these scanslations do the same, out of respect for the English-language publishers.
July 1st, 2018 (11:07am)
Happy July 1st! Here's another chunk of the official Suikoden I manga. ;)
June 17th, 2018 (6:57am)
Happy dubious Father's Day, Qifrey! Have a Witch Hat chapter 14 to celebrate. Thank you again to everyone who's signed the guestbook, and to Laika, Meterion, and Corvid for their tireless work keeping this project rolling! I've also uploaded all of volume one (chapters 01-05) as its own download link. Just leave a message or email me at [email protected]
if you'd like access to individual chapter download links. They'll probably stay active for awhile.
May 27th, 2018 (6:57am)
And.... *drumroll* Witch Hat chapter 13! This is the desperation of a looming final presentation that I just can't bear to write up yet, presented to you in the form of a quick release of another chapter! <3
May 23rd, 2018 (8:30pm)
Witch Hat chapter 12, for your reading pleasure. Thanks for all your support!
April 21st, 2018 (11:11am)

Done with exams, so here's a charming one-shot manga to celebrate: My Papa is an Alien
by Shimojyou Sachiko. Go give it a read! The art alone is a lot of fun. Typesets of Witch Hat have slowed down due to real life, but we're going to keep at it and will aim to release a chapter as soon as we're able to. I've translated up through chapter 11, and am working on chapter 12. ;)
January 7th, 2018 (7:43am)
Witch Hat chapter 8! Chapter 9 is ready to be typeset, and I'm working through the initial translation of chapter 10.
October 18th, 2017 (5:55pm)
Here's Chapter 7 of Witch Hat. Chapter 8 is being proofread, and typesetting will begin shortly. Big thanks to Meterion and Dood of Ronin, as well as Laika! It's good to be working with ya.
October 10th, 2017 (12:55pm)
Yep, we're still working on Witch Hat! Chapter 7 is halfway typeset, and Chapter 8 is pretty much translated, just gotta revise it and review. ;)
August 27th, 2017 (9:58am)
Whew, busy busy busy month. Chapter 6 of Witch Hat Atelier is out, and chapters 7 and 8 are in the works. Who's up for some Dragon Quest, or maybe Suikoden V? My brain's ready for something easy...
July 28th, 2017 (1:34pm)
And here's Witch Hat chapter 5! That concludes volume one. Look forward to volume 2!

Check it out: [ http://rp-fans.livejournal.com/1376.html ] Chapter 153 is also translated, and the group may be looking for a typesetter if anyone is interested. Chapter 154... is on its way. Hooray!
June 7th, 2017 (4:51pm)
I've been home sick all week! But translating chapters 6 & 7 of the Suikoden V Anthology manga made me smile... and hopefully they'll do the same for you.
May 29th, 2017 (5:43pm)
Thanks for all of your support! Chapter 4 of Witch Hat is translated and just waiting for review and then typesetting, and I've started translating chapter 5, which is the final chapter in volume one.
May 14th, 2017 (2:25pm)
Chapter 3 of Witch hat is here!
April 28th, 2017 (10:52am)
Here's chapter 6 of the Dragon Quest Tale of Heaven manga - which means volume one is complete! :) Enjoy! I do miss translating those silly Suikoden V manga, the Suikoden I novel, and low-key Suikoden I and V doujinshi... if anybody's got scans of regular Suikoden I or V doujinshi they want to sent my way, feel free! ( [email protected]
