Here We Come, Rock You Like a Hurricane! (Part Two)

I should have known that in my contest to see who could endure staying awake the longest (me vs. internet connection), that I would come out on the losing end. So let’s not delay, Doctor Yagai. I am woman enough to accept any method of punishment so long as it will be administered your hands. 😉

9. & (and) Volume 1, Ch.4 – Yagai sinks his hooks into Kaoru, and what better way to do it than by baiting her with his dysfunctional past? I for one am a total sucker for hot older men with a sad history.

10. Futago Volume 4, Ch.17 – Yukari and Naomi’s relationship takes a pivotal turn but a mysterious phone call may decidedly end things before they even begin? Let’s give a warm welcome to our new Futago editor, Kumomi. She’s worked real hard to help pull this project through, despite the few embarassing hiccups along the way.

11. Junai Rosen Ch. 1 *NEW PROJECT* While suffering from a broken heart, Sera moves in with her parents in their home in the countryside. Although Sera swore not to “get into a relationship for awhile” she meets Saji, a station attendant, and falls in love once again…?!

This is a Fujisue Sakura project (author of Ano Ko to Issho). I’ll have to admit, I really, really dislike her works, but Junai is my exception. The artwork isn’t her best. I mean, it looks pretty outdated, and it doesn’t help that we’re using public raws either (courtesy of Kajitsu from the now-defunct Michex Forums). A few panels in a later chapter even sent our cleaner Elanor off into a frantic frenzy.

Elanor: There’s a bit of pattern smeared on the bottom left that doesn’t quite fit in with the rest of the background. Could you look into it please?

(Several minutes pass.)

Elanor: It’s also on page 109!

Mimi: Elanor, I know this may come as a surprise, but those pattern smears are actually part of the artwork…

12. Natsuyuki Rendezvous Volume 2, Ch.10 – Earlier, Thumbelina Rokka had enlisted the aid of Hazuki in search of her prince. However, impatient with the lack of progress, she decides to take things into her own hands… by turning the page?!

13. Toribako House Volume 1, Ch.3 – It’s been one seemingly long and harrowing night for Miki. Not only is she plagued by her crazy boyfriend and drunk friend, but she finds even weirder guests upon her arrival at Kamaya’s boarding house. While Kamaya and Miki may have butted heads before, she will have to look for Kamaya as her pillar of strength when nature calls.

13.5. Teketeke Rendezvous Volume 1, Ch.2 [Fixed Release] – Tayoko is in for big trouble! Shishio, like the hunky Apollo that he is, makes her brain cells go fuzzy. However, the gentle vet reveals a darker side to him that has her running in the opposite direction???

***We are desperately looking for cleaner for this project. If you think you have what it takes, or know of anyone who does, please contact us right away!

    Thanks as always for these amazing releases! This time I was especially waiting for Futago and &!<3
    I admit I really dislike Fujisue Sakura too (I hate her unsympathetic characters) but I will try reading Junai Rosen too, because your projects never disappoint me.:) I really do appreciate every single page of your projects!
    Thank you again for your hard work and passion!

      I have the same problem with her characters too. However, that may be because the other series I read was so long. I honestly feel that it was partially due to her inexperience with a long running series, and/or being paired with an inexperienced editor. I really don’t like having to invest my emotions in a story for years only to have them trampled on like dirt by the end of it. Also, I don’t know if her intended audience prefers tools for men, but that’s the only explanation I have for how she ended up creating such tools…

      On the other hand, I think Junai Rosen benefits from being a more condensed story with fewer (and generally likeable) characters. There are still a few useless, throwaway characters that serve no purpose other than to give us the occasional nudge of reminder that Sera attends high school, but I’m usually forgiving when it happens in such a short story. Plus it helps that the male lead is pretty likeable and admirable this time around. Usually her other male characters make me want to, for lack of better words, smash their nuts.

    Wow, yammy!)
    Thank you for the second part of manga-happiness; espesially & and Natsuyuki Rendezvous! =))
    You’re just great, guys!

  8. Heather August 7, 2012 at 2:28 am

    You guys are just so freaking awesome. I’m so in love with everything Okazaki Mari does and I just realized you guys were doing &. It’s more perfect then I could have imagined! Thanks for your hard work!

  9. Rexy August 7, 2012 at 12:57 am

    Yeah! *happy dance*
    I totally nodded in agreement at the “hot older men with a sad history” part. And now I’m into hot older men who wear glasses, thanks to my reading Ristorante Paradiso and now Otoko no Issho. Of course, I just like good-looking men in general, especially the way Mari Okazaki draws them. Yay! Thank you for the releases!

  10. rose August 6, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Yay~! Thank you so much for another amazing batch! Keep up the awesome!!

  11. Maddith August 6, 2012 at 7:19 pm

    Thank you for all of the hard work! I can’t even comprehend how much time every single member of S.H. must put towards providing consistent updates and high quality scans, and for that I thank you.

    On another note: Damn, & was some heavy stuff.

  12. xlilim August 6, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    Oooh, this & chapter broke my heart and really hooked me.

  14. Lalaloo August 6, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    Thanks for all of your hard work and the updates especially Futago. 🙂

    WOOT~ I was hoping 3AM Dangerous Zone might be in the pile but I’m happy that & and Toribako House was updated.
    Thanks a lot for your hard work~

      I know it sucks being left hanging for so long at a cliffhanger, but the next chapter is with a typesetter right now, so it shouldn’t be too long until you see it. 🙂

  16. Lint August 6, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    Futago!! *swoons* Thanks sooooo much! I don’t think I should embarrassingly tell you guys how obsessed I was with this series a couple of months ago. Thank you Kumomi for helping take on this project and helping to see it through. As always, many thanks to the lovely staff members at Stiletto!
