Vinland Saga c79 (Joint with Hox)

Sorry we're late on this, I just find myself putting off all my scanlation work now that I have an actual job.  Thanks as always to Hox for translating, this time while he's off in China and unable to access most sites including his own blog.  New Tiger Mask should be out by the end of the week too, so look forward to that.

Mars, volume 2 chapter 1


The plot thickens. Enjoy, everybody, and thanks as ever to DynamicPro and Hokuto no Gun!

We've got more coming shortly, fear not. Kamen Rider is having its final double pages joined.

Friday, December 23, 2011

Shutendoji, chapter 1


Another awesome classic by Go Nagai! Thanks to our mates at Dynamic Pro and Hokuto no Gun for all the hard work on it. Katatonia is one hell of a translator, no?
Some more Christmas gifts should hopefully arrive on time, depending on Net and Dynamic Pro's schedules.

Devilman Lady Volume 10

Volume 10

Same old, guys, Kamen Rider's coming soon. Just finishing the cleaning and double pages. If anyone's interested on helping as a typesetter, proofreader or cleaner while Net is so busy, please give us a buzz.

ENjoy, and thanks to our pals, Othersideofsky and DynamicPro!

Android Kikaider v01, Happy! 147 and Yawara! 66

So yeah, in case you didn't read the earlier post I have a full-time job now, and since I work on nearly everything we do our release speed is going to slow down a bit.  To try and make up for that, I spent all of my day off working on manga, including a brand new series that I'm sure fans of Kamen Rider will love.  There should also be two more chapters of Boys on the Run out later over at, and they're both excellent.  If you haven't read it yet I highly recommend you do so, one of the best manga I've ever worked on (or read in general).

Edit: Fixed version of Yawara up.

Gosaku Ota's Grendizer, chapter 1

Lovely to have something up again. Between everything, this's been a tough month. Never fear, though, we're still here and we have more coming

Thursday, December 8, 2011


Everyone, just want to inform you of a minor issue. Nethandle is having some computer trouble and we've ordered a new AC adapter. He should hopefully be back within the week (if UPS stop being dicks and actually deliver his goddamn package), so all the series he's working on have a delay right now. If anyone is willing to assist in typesetting or double page merging, we have some Ishinomori at hand (namely, Kamen Rider volume 3 is fully cleaned and awaiting typesetting) as well as another surprise Ishinomori. Let me know if anyone is interested

Nethandle edit: Power adapter came and I'm back up and running, currently working on the double pages for our "secret" Ishinomori project.  However, I also just got a full time job so that will impact my scanlation time.  I'm gonna try and still do all of our projects the best I can, but for now we're not going to pick up anything new until we finish a few of our currents ones.  Any translators who wanna translate for us and don't mind us sitting on the scripts for a bit are more than welcome to help of course.  And if there's anyone who's experienced in every non-translation aspect of scanlation (cleaning, redrawing, typesetting, proofreading, and QC), I wouldn't mind help with that, as that's basically my job around here.

GeGeGe no Kitaro Chapter 1 (joint with Hokuto no Gun)

Hey guys, HnG and HS! bringing another new series into English.  It's none other than the legendary GeGeGe no Kitaro, one of the most influential manga ever published.  It's a travesty that this manga has been left untranslated for so long, but I'm glad we're able to rectify that.  Thanks to Katatonia and Systematic-Chaos over at Hokuto no Gun for translating and proofreading.  Enjoy.

Friday, November 25, 2011

Vinland Saga 78 (Joint with Hox)

After another month long break Yukimura is back with a brand spanking new chapter of Vinland Saga.  Seriously, at this point if the manga never got back to Thorfinn I would be more than satisfied (not that I disliked Farmland Saga, mind you).  Anyways, as always thanks to Hox for his incredible work in translating, and I hope you all enjoy the chapter.

Wednesday, November 23, 2011

Happy! 146

Dokuro chapter 5, END

Chapter 5

Volume 1 complete

New Happy will be completed shortly. Sorry for the delays in Tiger Mask. Our translation checker is extremely busy. When he's free, we should have more Tiger Mask and Mars in very short order.

Update: Mars will just be a bit delayed for a few more weeks. Tiger Mask will be the focus for them until the first volume is complete. However, by way of recompense, some more classic mangaka will have their first features coming up shortly by us. Namely, Leiji Matsumoto and Shigeru Mizuki

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Yawara! 65

New chapter of Yawara out, we should have a steady release pace for this now that we have a new typesetter (he's still new though so we're working out the kinks).  Thanks Kazuhiko!

Saturday, November 19, 2011

Blade of the Immortal volume 28 (joint with Rippersanime and OtherSideofSky and Offtopia)

Newest volume of BOTI out and boy it's a good one.  Big thanks to OtherSideofSky for stepping up and translating it for us, and as always thanks to crazyankan over at Rippersanime for his help with cleaning.  Don't expect the next volume for quite a while, I believe they're published once a year.

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Devilman Lady volume 8

Volume 8

And this is, I'm proud to say...our 100th release! Not bad for a group not even around a year. We hope to continue bringing you many classic manga. 2012 should be an excellent year. We have some exciting new projects coming up, and our current ones to finish.

Give Dynamic Pro and OthersideofSky their usual accolades. OtherSideofSky is truly one of the best translators on the scene today and he hopes to bring many great projects after this one!

Hang on tight and we should have more coming up soon!

Friday, November 4, 2011

Dokuro no Yakata Chapter 4

Chapter 4, Properties of the Deceased

Expect DML Volume 8 very soon. We'll be having some new and good stuff in the near future. Quite a bit just needs to be translation checked by our good friends at Hokuto no Gun. As always, thanks to Other Side of Sky and to DynamicPro!

If anyone's ever interested in giving some help with translation or cleaning, do hit us up sometimes as well.

We also found out that Boys on the Run is being worked on at Daniel Lau, so give them some support for doing a great manga.

My face when I realized I could post this even with my internet being down.
Thank god for smartphones.

Dokuro no Yakata chapter 3

Chapter 3: Demon Village

Enjoy. Okay, this has my vote as the most messed up one in the entire volume thus far, and one of the most bizarre Nagai has ever done.

....but who's surprised?

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

Happy! 143

Umino vs. Wendy 2: Electric Boogaloo

Tiger Mask Chapter 2

Get it while it's hot, Tiger Mask, chapter 2

As always , a massive thanks to our friends at Hokuto no Gun as always. Especially to the hardworking Katatonia, who is working to bring many more great manga to you, and Systematic Chaos who is making sure the translation in the manga is as close to perfect as possible.

And also, enjoy the wrestler bios, typed by Katatonia himself!

Mars and Dokuro no Yakata!

Mars ch. 2

Dokuro ch. 1

By now, Mars, by the legendary Yokoyama, should need no introduction.

Dokuro no Yakata, though? Another series by our beloved Go Nagai, and a special little Halloween treat for you all: Dokuro no Yakata's first short story: Red String. Dokuro is a series of horror shorts from Nagai, and you get to see how twisted his mind is.

Enjoy, and thanks as always to Dynamic Pro and Other Side of Sky!

Kamen Rider v2 and Blade of the Immortal v27

Aww yeah, more volume-y goodness.  Once again, thanks to our joint partners Rippersanime and Offtopia for making these releases possible.  Raws for BOTI were pretty bad this time around, sorry in advance 'bout the quality.

Yawara Chapter 64

Here's a new one, hot on the heels of the last. Everyone, please enjoy.

Chapter 64

And as always, thanks to VI for their hard work!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

Mars! (Joint with DynamicPro and Hokuto No Gun)

Well, everyone enjoy chapter 1 of Mars, Mitsuteru Yokoyama's classic science fiction manga! Many thanks to DynamicPro for the exceptional editing (and saintly patience), as well as to our friends Katatonia and SystematicChaos of Hokuto no Gun for their exemplary translation and proofreading.

We've got a lot of good manga ahead, guys, including some exciting surprise projects for you. I encourage everyone to donate a bit to DynamicPro if possible, even if it's only a dollar or two, for the expenses accrued in bringing great manga to everyone. If all goes well, we just might have a special Halloween release or two.

OtherSideOfSky is hard at work on Devilman Lady V7 and our friends at Village Idiot are working on the next chapter of Yawara, so expect those soon!

Friday, October 7, 2011

Tiger Mask 1 (Joint with Hokuto no Gun)

And the new projects just keep on flowing!  Tiger Mask is a legendary series in Japan that has a wide cultural influence.  Even to this day there are wrestlers who adopt the Tiger Mask persona in ring.  We're very excited about this project!

Much thanks to the guys over at Hokuto no Gun for their amazing work with the translation, without them this release would not be possible.

Small note, we are working with the Bunkobon edition, which is 7 volumes long, each of which are about 400+ pages.

Tuesday, October 4, 2011

Kekkou Kamen 5

Another ridiculous chapter of Kekkou Kamen for you all.  This one has quite possibly my favorite Nagai line ever.  Enjoy.

Thursday, September 29, 2011

Kamen Rider volume 1 (Joint with Offtopia)

Another new project, this time by the legendary Ishinomori Shotaro.  Kamen Rider is pretty big in Japan, mainly due to the multiple TV series, and we're proud to bring you the manga that started it all.  Much thanks to our new translator Sarutobi for translating this, and to Offtopia for their help in making this release possible.

Monday, September 26, 2011

Vinland Saga 77 (Joint with Hox)

Orman fucks shit up and his brother helps him out by fucking more shit up in a much more badass way. Enjoy.

Yawara! Chapters 62 and 63

Chapter 62

Chapter 63

Sorry this has taken so long, everyone. Numerous factors contributed to that. Please enjoy the next two chapters of Yawara, and let me give a big thanks to CrazyAnkan of RippersAnime for his exemplary work cleaning and our new partners on this project, Village Idiot Scans for helping to make this possible.

You know the drill, so please enjoy, and be sure to check out VI for some of the great series they're doing as well, including Urasawa's Pineapple Army.

Friday, September 23, 2011

Kekkou Kamen 4

Happy! 139 & Brave Dan 3 (series end)

So yeah, new chapter of Happy and the last chapter of Brave Dan, a Tezuka series that was left unfinished by another group.  I'm tired and have nothing else to say, so just enjoy the manga.

Devilman Lady Volume 6

Well, everyone knows the drill now. A huge thanks to DynamicPro and OtherSideOfSky for making it possible as always. OtherSideOfSky is going to be taking a break now to focus on Getter Robo G for DynamicPro, so be on the lookout for that. Though, fear not. We hope to have Volume 7 out before the end of the month. Indeed, we hope to finish Devilman Lady before the year is out.

So, everyone enjoy! And as always, if you're interested in helping out, give a ring.

Devilman Lady Volume 6

Friday, September 2, 2011

Devilman Lady Volume 5

Alright, everyone. Hot on the heels of volume 4, you can thank OtherSideOfSky's swift translating for bringing up DML Volume five. Thanks as ever to Patrick of DynamicPro and OtherSideOfSky for these releases! An especially huge thanks to OtherSideOfSky with whom we hope to bring you the entire series of Devilman Lady and other classic works in the future.

Hopefully everybody enjoyed Blade of the Immortal. We hope to be doing more work with Gantz Waiting Room, as we've been big ans of their work. Have you read Freesia? Shingeki? Well, you should, because they're excellent series GWR has done. I can't say for certain when BOTI 27 will be out, as it depends on Morten's schedule for translating, but we're looking forward to bringing it to you.

Some of you may be wondering about Yawara. Now, I'm happy to report it IS moving forward. We finally found a way past these awful raws (and thanks loads to Morten of GWR for that), so all we await are the erasure of the text and the typesetting. Hopefully we'll have that out before long.

And next, we're still on the lookout for translators. Anyone interested in our mainstays like Nagai and Tezuka would be welcome. Anyone who's like to do any of Shotaro Ishinomori's manga also. Others we'd be interested in if you're interested:

Tiger Mask


Boys on the Run

Master Keaton

Space Adventure Cobra

Also, a sidenote. Hox has been looking for someone to help with the extremely text-filled Tomorrow's Joe. I encourage anyone who might have the time to consider this. Hox is a great translator we look forward to doing much more with and this is a project we'd love to see go through.

If anyone's interested in working with us, then please shoot Net or I a line.

But enough of my prattling. Everyone enjoy DML V5!

Happy! 136

Dicks go here.

Blade of the Immortal volume 26 (Joint with Rippersanime and Offtopia)

Yet another new project, this one being a personal favorite of ours.  I loved working on it so much I typeset the entire volume in two days.  Anyways, thanks to Rippersanime and Offtopia for helping make this release possible, and I hope everyone enjoys reading it.

Vampire 21

We've reached the climax of the story.  Next chapter is the final in the volume, and for a while was the final chapter of the series.

Friday, August 26, 2011

Cyborg 009 volumes 1-10 (Scanned by Random Scans/kickthekitty)

Here's a little something I did for fun. Cyborg 009 is a classic, influential series that's very popular in Japan.  It's so popular, that after Ishinomori ended it he was convinced to bring it back for a total of 36 volumes, serialized in about 8 different magazines.

The point where he originally ended the series, however, is volume 10, which is exactly where the Tokyopop volumes ended.  Right, guess I should mention that these are the Tokyopop volumes, which were scanned by the ever awesome Random Scans.  Normally I wouldn't do something like this but A) Tokyopop is dead in the US and B) I have no respect for them as manga publishers.  Also I was bored and this was a quick editing job.

Anyways, enough of my babbling.  Enjoy the series, and don't forget to thank Random Scans for making this possible.

Volume 1 (edited by kickthekitty of Random Scans)

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Devilman Lady Volume 4

And let's give a huge thanks to our friend, OtherSideOfSky for this amazing release, and once again to DynamicPro for their hard work. Without both of them, this could not be possible. OtherSideOfSky will be taking over translation now.

Enjoy, everyone, and look forward to the next releases!

PS: Also, Yawara's a mite stalled right now. If anyone is interested in editing it, please let us know.

Friday, August 19, 2011

Devilman Lady Volume 3 (Joint with Dynamic Pro & Neptise Scans)

Lot of releases this day.  Here's Devilman Lady volume 3, which I don't actually work on but am posting because Wright is busy.  Dynamic Pro has more info about this release than me, so you should visit his blog here, and while you're at it read all the series they've done if you haven't, it's all great.

Happy! 134

Haters gonna hate.

Hot on the heels of NASA, we have our weekly chapter of Happy for you guys.  Enjoy.

NASA (Joint with Hox)

Here it is, Naoki Urasawa's short story collection NASA is now completely scanlated into English.  Much thanks to Hox for being awesome enough to translate this, and thanks to Mangascreener for doing Chapter 9, Beta!!.

These stories are from early in Urasawa's career, so don't expect something like Monster or 20th Century Boys.  Stylistically these are closer to Yawara, with a lot of the stories being more gag oriented..  Anyways, hope you all enjoy reading this as much as I did while working on it.

Monday, August 15, 2011

Kekkou Kamen 2

No idea what's up with the transition on pg. 68.  As the Table of Contents shows, it's all part of the same chapter.  I guess this is just Nagai being Nagai.

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Devilman Lady Volume 2

It's with great pleasure we bring you this new release. For those who are unaware, volume 1 of DML was finished quite a while ago by other scanlators, so here are chapters 1 and 2:

Volume 1:
with all credit to the original scanlators.

For those who don't know, DML is a dark story, but widely held as one of Nagai's best, with some of his finest art, a great story and deep characterization. Not for the squeamish, though.

We also have to give a big thanks to DynamicPro for typesetting this release, as well as Farah from Neptise Scans for translating it. For the future releases, Volume 3 will be have Farah's translation, but after that, as other circumstances have kept her busy, OthersideOfSky will be taking over on Volume 4 after he's finished Amon: The Dark Side of Devilman.

So a huge thanks to Dynamic Pro and OtherSideOfSky and to Neptise as well. Do yourselves a favor and check their current and future projects out. Hope you enjoy Devilman Lady, everybody!

OtherSideOfSky and DynamicPro releases:
Neptise Scans:

Expect more soon.

Kekkou Kamen 1

Got a new project for everyone, a classic series by the ever enigmatic Go Nagai.  Kekkou Kamen is about a masked warrior who's gimmick is she doesn't wear any clothes (aside from gloves, boots, a mask and scarf).  As you can imagine, there's lots of nudity so if you can't handle that then this series isn't for you.  But for those of you who've already read some of Nagai's work that won't be a problem.  Anyways, very hilarious series, I highly recommend it.

Tuesday, August 2, 2011

Vampire 19

Wow, already halfway through volume 3.  Really enjoying the series, quite a lot more than I thought I would when we first started working on it, but I'm starting to get a bit worried considering the series is supposedly incomplete. I just hope the ending isn't too inconclusive.

Vampire 18

It's three in the morning and I had nothing better to do, so here's a chapter of Vampire.

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Vampire 17 & Juushin Liger v1-2 (v2)

We have the start of Vampire volume 3 for you today.  We also have a version 2 of Juushin Liger, which now has the missing pages in them.  Much thanks to the original raw scanner for getting into contact with us.

Vampire v03 c17
Juushin Liger v01 (v2)
Juushin Liger v02 (v2)

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Juushin Liger volume 2 / END

Enjoy the conclusion to the Juushin Liger saga.  It feels a bit short/rushed, which is something that seems to happen often with manga adaptations of anime.  Still, it was a fun ride, and hopefully someone will sub the anime one day.

Thursday, June 30, 2011

Vampire 14-16 / Volume 2 END

Aww yeah, halfway through Vampire now.  Enjoy the chapters, and look forward to some Happy later this week.  And in case you haven't heard, there was no Vinland Saga chapter this month.

Happy delay

We planned a chapter this week, but unfortunately, a slight computer error resulted in the translation being lost from StealthMomo's computer. Sorry about that, guys, just got set back a week.

Sunday, June 19, 2011

Yawara! 61

Finally, we at HappyScans are proud to bring you another series by Naoki Urasawa, Yawara!

Big thanks to translator Kai Boh and editor AvalonsAyame for joining us. Without those two, this release would not be possible.

Thursday, June 16, 2011

Vampire 13

A long chapter of Vampire out.  There's a mention of a mangaka named Kyuuta Ishikawa in this chapter. He doesn't seem to be well-known, but twopioneers found a picture that seems to be related to what Tezuka was referencing.

Guess I'll do a project update while I'm at it.

NASA -  86/220 pages done.

Vinland Saga - 122/224 pages of volume 10 done.  We've caught up with the chapters that Hox has already done, and I believe he's going to translate the others once NASA is finished.  This month's chapter raw should show up sometime next week if we're lucky.

Happy! - Stealth Momo is busy so don't expect a chapter this week.

Juushin Liger - First 30 pages are translated but I've been too lazy and busy (yes, both) to typeset it

Monday, June 13, 2011

Vampire 11-12

Two new chapters of Vampire for your reading pleasure. An old face returns and a new character appears who seems to actually live up to the name of the manga.

Happy! 125-126

Couldn't technically keep up with the daily releases (got busy yesterday) but I made up for it with a double release today.  That's it for our backlog of translated chapters, we're back to one a week unless Stealth Momo feels like translating another batch again (and has the free time to do so).

Happy! 125
Happy! 126

Thursday, June 2, 2011

Happy! 123

We've got 3 more chapters translated, let's see if I can keep up the daily releases.

Oh, and new Vampire chapter got TLed, hopefully we can have that for you guys tomorrow.

Wednesday, June 1, 2011

Happy! 122

We were planning on having a batch of Happy chapters done this week, but something came up so instead I decided to release them as they're finished.

Saturday, May 28, 2011

Juushin Liger Volume 1

This is the new project we've been working on for a while, Juushin Liger by Go Nagai.  If you've never read a Nagai manga before, this one probably wouldn't be a good place to start, not that you shouldn't give it a try anyways.  If you have though, you probably know what to expect.  Mechs, aliens, tits, action, and something sorta not really resembling a plot.  Anyways, it's good fun, and I'm eager to see the next volume (it's only 2 volumes long).

Update on our other stuff:

Vampires - Should be starting volume 2 fairly soon.

NASA - 44 pages done (the first two chapters).  I'm going by page number because the chapters range anywhere from 8 to 30 pages.  The tankoubon is 218 pages plus we're skipping Beta!! because Mangascreener already did that.

Vinland Saga - First two chapters (~60 pages) of volume 10 done.  Next magazine chapter won't be out for about 3-4 weeks.

Happy - We should have a present for all you Happy fans in about a week if everything goes right (read: I get off my lazy ass and start working on it), so stay tuned for that.

Monday, May 23, 2011

Vinland Saga 74 (Joint with Hox)

No, your eyes don't deceive you, we at HappyScans have teamed up with well-known scanlator Hox to bring you Vinland Saga.  We'll be helping with the monthly releases as well as doing the tankoubons, starting with volume 10 as that contains most, but not all, of the chapters done by Mangastream.

So you can grab this chapter and all future releases from here or Hox's blog:

Enjoy, and sorry about the quality of this month's chapter, the raws were REALLY bad this time around.

Vampire 7-8 / Volume 1 END

Finally done with Vampire volume 1.  Rock continues to be a magnificent bastard and now even Chippei is getting caught up in this mess.

No more Happy this week because our translator was busy.  We should have more at the weekend as usual.

The first volume of our secret project is fully translated, once I get off my ass and typeset the last ~90 pages it should be out. Should only take a few days if nothing else arise.

I believe that's all except for we could always use more translators, and if we do get more we might even start recruiting editors.

Oh, and enjoy.

Vampire 6

Had this one done a half hour ago but Blogger decided to shut down.  This one's short, only 13 pages, but the next two chapters (the last in volume 1) total 64 pages and twopioneers said he can finish those off next week, so look forward to that.

As for our other WIP project, it's currently at 110 pages translated, fully cleaned, and 80 pages typeset.  The first volume is 192 pages, so we're nearly a quarter done with it already.

In the mean time, enjoy Rock being Rock.

Sunday, May 8, 2011

Thursday, May 5, 2011

Vampire 5

New chapter of Vampire is out.  Rock proves himself to be quite the magnificent bastard this chapter, I love it.

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Happy! 118 / Volume 11 END & Vampire 4

Had to move this weekend so the release got a bit delayed.  Anyways, we're finally done with our first volume of Happy.  Only 12 more to go!  We also have another exciting chapter of Vampire for your reading pleasure.

There's also a new project in the works from another famous influential mangaka, there's no actual chapter breaks in it so we'll be releasing it by volume.  Look out for that one in roughly a few weeks.

Happy! 117 & Vampire 1-2

New project ahoy~

Following on the footsteps of Angel's Hill, we have another Osamu Tezuka series by the name of Vampire.  This one is a lot of fun so far, and probably has a more general appeal than Angel's Hill.  Either way, please give it a read.  Oh, and this is also being translated by twopioneers, we just decided to release it solely under the HappyScans banner.

And of course, we have our weekly dose of Happy which continues Umino's bout against Sabrina Nikolic. Next chapter ends the volume and marks our first complete volume of the series, I'm quite excited for it.

Angel's Hill 7 / Volume 2 END

Ugh it's way too late but I got this shit done.  With that Angel's Hill is officially completely scanlated.  I'd like to thank twopioneers for translating it for us.  It's been a fun experience, and we plan to bring more Tezuka and other series by influential authors into English with his help.

Angel's Hill 6 & Happy! 116

Wow, twopioneers blitzed through chapter 6 faster than I expected.  Not only that, chapter 7 (the final chapter) is already done so I'll try to typeset that one as soon as I can, it's another 80+ pages.  In the penultimate chapter we cover a lot of ground in a whopping 114 pages.  There's reunions, assassins (and not the two you would expect), and a setup for the final confrontation on Angel's Island.

We also have the return of Happy this week, in which Umino learns exactly why Sabrina Nikolic is the Queen of the tennis world.

Angel's Hill 6

Very, very short chapter this time so not much to say.  The next one is a whopping 114 pages but it should be translated by next week so look forward to that.

And with that we're about halfway through this one already.  Don't have much to write since I'm in a hurry, but as always we're looking for translators.

Angel's Hill 3 & Happy! 115

Hurray, our first double release! 

In Angel's Hill, we continue with Eiji and Akemi's adventures on Angel Island, filled with love and mystery and reverse mermaids.  In Happy, we begin Umino's strange journey in America, complete with engrish and trolling.
In other news, Happy translator Stealth Momo is gone again this week, so the next chapter might be a bit later than usual (which is part of the reason why I didn't release this chapter until today).

Angel's Hill 2

Another chapter of Angel's Hill for you to enjoy.  Cults and identity switching abound, very fun chapter.  It's a whopping 68 pages so have fun with it.

Angel's Hill 1 (joint with twopioneers)

What's this, a new project?  Why yes it is!

Angel's Hill by Osamu Tezuka, a cute shoujo manga published in 1960.  Something a bit different than Happy, although maybe not completely since Urasawa, like pretty much every mangaka ever, was heavily influenced by Tezuka.

This is a joint between us and twopioneers, who is translating this for us in addition to the very awesome Tezuka series The Crater. I highly recommend grabbing that off his blog, it's definitely worth a read.

EDIT: Sorry about that folks, there was a missing bubble.  Fixed and reuploaded.

Happy! 113

So if you missed the last post our translator was gone last week.  To make up for it we'll have two chapters this week, the next one coming out on the weekend as usual.
