Release 548: The Mother Ocean, The Woman Boat, The Girl Me

Something different, for a change. Just a warning, there’s lots of angst and little love in this story. This is the first of 10 chapters, so hang in there! There might be light at the end of the tunnel!


Below is the author’s original column for this chapter.

To Die In June Column #01
Minazuki Theatre Troupe, Part One, Act One.

Act One: The Mother Ocean, The Woman Boat, The Girl Me

Whether it’s wanting to kill someone
or being in a time when people die,
death makes really good material for a story,
so I set out to draw “a manga where people enjoy dying.” Not that it’s enjoyable.
This grew out of a piece I did for the group exhibition “Seira Fuku Kyouten” (Sailor Uniform Scriptures) held in Osaka, “Umi Yukaba”. I just couldn’t forget about the anachronous girls in uniform.

Like a painter depicting love, death, war, and faith, I felt like I wandered off all of those themes. And so I’ve put all of those into this work. What makes up the core of this story are themes like girlhood and motherhood, birth and loss, and various beliefs.

Much like my previous “La Sagrada Familia”, I put together a squad of 12 girl soldiers. Their names are inspired by suicide weapons and the calendar months. (For example Satsukibara Nae is taken from Satsuki(Naezuki) which means May)
I drew the boat in the middle using a plastic model.

What’s a girl riding in the woman boat on the mother ocean? A girl, that’s all!
Please enjoy this story, of naive girls who haven’t yet discovered themselves, of love and war and revolution. And I would be delighted if you could watch over their battle until the very end.

Release 547: Played Like A Fiddle

Not to worry, the story’s not half as dirty as this post is. But if you enjoy this kind of thing, keep reading…

She’s playing her like a fiddle, blowing her trumpet, clashing her cymbals, fingering her flute, jangling her triangle, kicking her drum, ringing her bell, rubbing her strings, striking her gong, strumming her chords, tapping her timpani, and tooting her horn.

Sup pleberoos!

Your friendly neighbourhood spud here, with some sweet senpai and kouhai home living.
While we’ve been working hard on serialisations from some favourite artists, we’ve taken an aside to bring you a manga from a fresh new face to yuri, Sakada.
Without further ado, please enjoy reading this story about other people’s problems.

There’s more to come so keep you eyes peeled for chapter 2 in the pipe.

P.S. This is borderline lewd level 2 so probably don’t read this at work/school.

Release 527: Childhood

Being a kid was great. If something bad happened, you could just bawl your eyes out and forget about it by dinnertime. You know the song: “If you’re happy and you know it, then your face will surely show it.” But then you grow up and now you can’t wear your heart on a sleeve anymore, and you don’t really know if you’re really happy or are you just pretending to be so you don’t draw attention to yourself. What does happy mean, again? It used to be so simple.

Author’s pixiv comment: This is a two year-old book released at the NozoEli-only event “Sweet Sweet Sweet” held on February 21st, 2016. I’m not planning on reprints, so I’m releasing it. To everyone who bought it at the time, thank you so much. I can’t believe it’s been two years already…this is a story about Nozomi who wants to be woken.

Release 524: Hachi New Years!

This is it. The final volume of angels. We put out volume 1 in March 2016, but the translating started in December 2015, so this project’s taken a little more than two whole years to finish! A lot of things have happened, and a lot of things have changed, but I hope you find Mikoto just as adorable as she was in the past three volumes.

In case you don’t pay any attention to credit pages [bah, who looks at those anyways?], Mae did the typesetting for all four volumes! That’s copying text from my messy scripts and putting them in a box in photoshop, over and over and over again(x500) Not to mention redraws and revisions! So yeah, let’s have a round of applause for the spud!

If you need a refresher or want to look back at individual chapters check out the category on the reader.
