Shutendoji Volume 1 and Vagabond 309 and 310



First of all...let's welcome back our old friend, Shutendoji after too long in limbo. The tale of Jiro Shutendo! A genius boy who's held to be a prodigy...in this volume, people ponder over how mysterious he is, and he meets a creepy teacher who invites him back to his house when nobody is around. This is probably the least unusual thing in a Nagai manga, to be fair. We also meet the Life-Bound, who are trash even by the standards Nagai sets for his villains.

A hell of a compelling story thus far, so please enjoy the return of the complete Shutendoji Volume 1
Thanks to Hokuto No Kun's Katatonia for the translation and Chaos for the checking, and Dynamic Pro for the work on the prologue

Now comes two new chapters of Vagabond, thanks to our pals at Guren, and our pal Mein Square for typesetting!

  10. Helo there big fun of your work! but this isnt why i am here unfortunately.
    Why is it that you haven't released a Yawara chapter since April 2012? Did you drop the series?
    If so then plz tell us so i will start looking for a translator and start cleaning Yawara myself!
    If not and you are looking for a cleaner i am here to offer myself to you!
    I did 2 releases with franky house way back in 2010(i cant remember which series i was lol :P ), i was i "graduate student" form their cleaning academy!
    Anyways...
    With regards

    1. don't worry, Yawara isn't dropped. In fact, with all luck, we should see a new chapter soon. Just down to Stargood.

      If you want to help with cleaning here, would you only be interested in Yawara or others, too?

    2. well i am interested in Yawara, Keaton and possibly Vinland Saga(thats for manga you are working on)... not sure if my skills can handle Vinland Saga though depends on the raw... by the way what the hell happened to topaz its completely different or am i remembering an other program?

      I am mostly interested in series that haven't been released in English yet. Prison School comes to my mind!

  14. I love this manga, Miyuki (in all her naked glory) has gotta be one of Go Nagai's cutest designs. The demons' designs, Iron Kaiser, and the complex undertone of growing up and detaching from motherhood make this a worthwhile title in Go Nagai's archives.
