First of many.

092015This week is a little bit of a break. Considering the first 7 volumes we’re releasing will all be shoujo & josei works (!!), I wanted to sneak in a little seinen somehow. Elemhunter has a wonderful blog/group where he shares all kinds of raws, and I jumped at the chance to do a oneshot by Takahashi Tsutomu. I’m a fan of his after reading Jiraishin (which I recommend), and hope to one day finish scanlating the sequel Diablo (except my pal with raws is semi-retired, so… not working well).

Regardless! This oneshot is a slice-of-life about a jaded young woman and the solace she finds in a mom-and-pop Chinese restaurant. Huggles to Ximena for editing an unreasonably large number of things for me >.>;

Namida no Tantanmen [DL @ Mega or MediaFire]

Expect more random oneshots as time passes. And if you have access to magazine raws, I’m always open to more =D

Update: So, Jiraishin Diablo is definitely happening. Just need to figure out the timing~

    woah! Thank you for the release. It’s been a while since I saw Takahashi Tsutomu’s work being translated so I read it immediately. kudos to you!

    Wait, bro, I’ve got the raws for Diablo Σ(゜ロ゜; ) Or are the public raws 2lame?

    I’ll send through mail just in case =w=;;

    • kalendel says:

      Wait, what!? There are actual HQ public raws for the series and no one’s finished it off!? What’s wrong with the world? D=

      (…unless it’s because peeps don’t want to do a started/dropped series or because it’s still on DV’s project page… but still… people!!!)

    Takahashi Tsutomu’s always a treat. I liked Jiraishin quite a bit too, not to mention the Skyhigh series. Hope you’ll be able to do Diablo at some point! (Well, provided Iida doesn’t gain a love interest in that one. If he does, please warn me so that I can avoid it like the plague ^^)

    Thanks for the oneshot!

    • kalendel says:

      I don’t think Iida does — at least, it didn’t look remotely like that in the first volume. I don’t actually read ahead of what I translate >.>;

      Ishi just tossed me HQ public raws, so… this could definitely happen. Let’s see if I can get in touch with my old partner on the series to clear it with her… (Not that I’ve even asked Ximena if she’ll edit it… =D)

    Guys, I’m so looking forward to Ultrabaroque Deprogrammer. I hope you do the entire series 😀

      Naturally 😉 Though we have 4 vols of other series to release before we get to it >.>; Must go faster…

  7. Dille says:

    Thanks you for translating this one shot. More Tsutomu is always a good thing.

    I also uploaded this oneshot on BakaBt, so if you want you can use the torrent as a download mirror. I’m guessing I can’t add links to these comments, so you’ll have to find it on you own.

    • kalendel says:

      Glad you like! We’re also going to finish up Jiraishin Diablo… but… not for several months, still.

      As for the torrent, I’d rather not clutter up pages with links for some projects but not others — but thanks for distroing 🙂
