  1. Something for you all on a Sunday afternoon (time zone dependant) a re-upload of the 1st 6 eps of Nana to Kaoru Pink Pure. For those not aware of these they are 4 x 4 panel sketch’s done by another artist and they come out periodically with Arashi. I’ve done some digging and there are some more that haven’t been translated going upto eps 12 which was released with the latest Arashi. I’m in the process of trying to download them (got 3 out of 6 so far), once I have all will upload.

    • After discussing things with the rest of the people I work with if you want come talk to me in the IRC room. The address is at the top of the page or you can contact me through Skype under username Terrabane1

  2. First thanks for the new chapter.

    Second, I need to know what the hell is going on in YA. Is Kaoru giving life advice to council Prez?! I’m so confused!

    It says something about the depth of this series when it’s a conversation between two characters that don’t like each other that makes me desperately curious. I want to know more about that than the next breather.

    • Actually in one of the earlier chapters when Kaoru started applying himself to his school work again and needed a tutor there seemed to be a small panel with what looked like a study session with the prez. and Kaoru or at the very least someone that looked like him to me anyway I’d have to go back through and check again though so don’t quote me on it. Also considering the prez’s reaction to Kaoru defending Nana so vehemently when they all came looking for her it seemed like a switch had been turned on that could’ve signified more than just what it meant in the moment. Not to mention judging by the looks of the scenes the prez had just got caught for having porn (or something of that nature) so perhaps that formed a camaraderie in his mind with Kaoru at least to the extent that he could be civil with him for now anyway. Geez! I need to quit typing at this hour makes me long winded!πŸ™‚

      • Normally it is, however reckon some people in Japan got it on subscription and thus get it early, hits the newstands on the Friday.

    • Fantastic as always, Ginginc. Thanks for throwing them out as soon as humanly possible.
      Looks like it’s going to be a fantastic bunch of chapters up ahead. I won’t spoil anything for those who haven’t read it yet, but I think it’s a great turn with _____ being a secret M.

  3. Hello hello, meandering cultural notes here. The title this time around refers to the Japanese variety show ε†…ζ‘γ¨γ‚Άγƒ―γ€γε€œ or A Noisy Night with Uchimura. It’s a “raunchy” latenight show (insofar as Japan can do raunchy, most of the time they just opt to dress men in dresses and bad make-up) and like all variety shows is made up of segments and relies on new guests every week. I only managed to make it through one before wanting to claw my eyes out and fry them with an iron. The audience is mostly women, with four random guys that are the brunt of the show’s jokes.
    The segment I watched seems to involve placing the male guests in situations a woman might typically encounter, like dealing with an overbearing stepmother or a friend who thinks she’s hot shit now that she has a boyfriend, and seeing how they resolve it. This is then judged by a panel of women, who also give comments and field outbursts of indignation from the men. I think the funniest part was the fact that one of the guests actually had the gall to go on air while his wife was giving birth.

    • Right on I was hoping you’d continue these little insights into Japanese culture via the tittle references! Such an interesting divergence of… interests compared to our own. I for one wouldn’t mind to visit there someday but my hat goes off to those that have to live in that regulatory madness if some recent news articles are to be believed (course the same could be said of our country in certain aspects too at the moment but I don’t think I’ll go there in this forum). Woo hoo ramblings!!!πŸ™‚

  4. Awesome as always my only little nit would have to be on page 07 when Nana says “you’re too soft” “you were to soft” would have made more sense in that context (small bubble space not withstanding), but I’ve seen this happen before every so often so I’m guessing that’s how the original author wrote it. Considering how hard Kaoru is on himself about staying in the Dom persona one could think that that’s how HE heard her reply to his little slip of the tongue though I suppose. Anyways my idiotic musings aside Thanks for letting me read another chapter folks!πŸ™‚

    • I think she is referring to Kaoru’s voice, she couldn’t hear what he said. In fact I don’t think Nana heard/understood anything of what Kaoru said because it goes like this:

      K: You’re so pretty.
      N: What did you say?
      K: I just spoke my mind. (Maybe she thought he repeated himself.. ?)
      N: You’re to soft, can you say it again? Please? (tl: Can’t hear you, please repeat)
      K: (He just looks at Nana.. as far as I can tell)
      N: Fine!

      Hopefully I’m not the confused one..πŸ™‚

    • Well, “you’re” could just as easily be the contraction for “you were” as “you are”. My advice, read it in the manner which suits you.

      • Yea I suppose, like I said it’s more of an Ocdish type of thing on my part than a gripe really which I had to post so I could feel a little less crazyπŸ˜‰ (goes back to mumbling in the corner). Also yea I knew she was referring to not being able to hear him I was just nitpicking on the usage.πŸ™‚ (continues incoherent murmuring)

        • I for one am glad you brought it up, because I read it in a different context and it didn’t make sense to me.

  5. I was surprised to find a new chapter up on my normal manga reading site so quickly after not seeing an update here a couple of days ago.

    Now I see why… this chapter had like… eight words in it.

    I’m anxious to see where this goes. I also want them to delve more deeply into the sexual…

  6. Man, that chapter felt like it was about 5 pages long. Really good though. I still think this whole thing will end with the storm somehow damaging the house and causing them to stop; especially if it looks like a kiss or an ‘I love you’ might come about. I don’t know how else they could end this.

    • I concur, Mr. Hard “blowing” Wind will have his way with Miss house and make her all noisy and wet inside before Nana and Kaoru do something the violates any PG13 rating it has now (besides the usual business). On the other hand, they could do the metaphorical storm justice and just go at it all night, be happy and then continue in YA at home.

      So late, need sleep… damn wood house.. how do you give a WOOD house a female gender and name without going all gender bender.. I know Amazume Ryuta has had his share, but I do not want!
      :/

  7. Thanks for the release!

    Question: are there any updates on Toshiue no Hito? Don’t know if it’s the group as a whole that’s working on it, or just certain members but there’s only one chapter left to go, iirc, and it would be great to finally finish it up.

      • Thanks for the heads up. i was able to find it on mangatraders.com (since I don’t use online readers) and was able to grab it there. For some reason it looks like it was never reported to Manga Updates which is why I missed it being completed!

  8. Sweet,πŸ˜€ A little short.. probably because there wasn’t much text. I guess Nana will be dressed for a while more, but I’m guessing she will be tied once before they take a break, and then continue.

    Also, whats with the credits page and v1 naming?

    Thanks for yet another chapterπŸ™‚

    • Not sure if we’ll get better raws and do another release or not, so safer to go with a V1 naming. The credits page is for two reasons, 1- it means I have to cover up less of the pretty artwork on the cover page, and 2- I think it looks more professional. Our releases do get carried on some aggregate reader sites, y’know.
