Green Blood 36-38

A nice way to kick off October Edward King and his boys have rolled off into Abilene and nobody is safe, before we head to the frontier of Montana where the Sioux are locked in battle with the US army...and Edward King and the Crimson Gang has plans to shake it all up....and Brad and Luke will find themselves in the middle.

Enjoy, guys. and I promise we'll be glad to do these again if we can grab HQ raws. Thanks for bearing with us through the difficulty of these scans.

Chapter 36

Chapter 37

Chapter 38

Green Blood 32-35 and Robot Keiji chapter 9

And it's another batch of Green Blood to finish off this arc. Ned Huddleston (I should note that in chapter 31, he's called Ned White but apparently it's changed to Huddleston...guess even mangaka make mistakes sometimes) has helped steal a huge amount of cattle with his fellow black workers, who have some legit gripes about how they've been treated. Unfortunately, the Crimson Gang have infiltrated the efforts and Brad's in for a hell of a fight with one of their members....Luke is bound and determined to bring back Ned to the ranch, and Ned might be the only one who can save Brad from Swallow's rope.

As a sidenote...guys, I'm not touting this series as high quality right now. This is done for love of the series and the mangaka and if you want to wait for another release, I'm not stopping you. We're doing our best on it with the very low quality public raws we have, and we have a great translator who's been doing a fabulous job on this. If you can enjoy the story for that,  appreciate it. If you can't, then I was asking for help to get a raw scanner for a good reason. I'm always appreciative of what our fans have to say, but I'd prefer it not be to attack out work on an issue I have no control over. Translation, btw, by Music Otaku, and editing by Wright and Thefolenangel

Green Blood, chapters 29-31

The western epic continues! When we last left them, Luke is about to face off with Fast Draw's the first time Luke has ever come into this situation, and no matter what happens, he's taking an enormous step by handling Hawk himself.
...Though if you thought Hawk was in this alone? You might have another thing coming. There might be someone behind him. Someone the boys have been hunting for...

And then it's a trip to an old fashioned cattle-rustling, where Masasumi decides to explore racial issues in post-Civil War America (which is done refreshingly honestly), and Luke has a friend who's involved in things he may be better off avoiding...

Enjoy the triple helping, all. Translation credit to Music Otaku, who's gonna bring you more Nagai after this series and editing credits to wright and thefolenangel

Ryujin Numa chapter 3: Star of Azure, and Cat's eye 12: The Ghost of the Cat

the Star of Azure

A star of Azure
Marks the end of Winer
A star of Azure
Marks the Beginning of Spring

A story set in Russia, about a starlet in love with a novelist...but when her maestro develops an attachment to her, bad things happen...

This is a great story, based entirely around the poetry, and the art can only be described as very...Moto Hagio or Keiko Takemiya. It's easy to see how it would later influence there

And...Cat's Eye chapter 12: Ghost Of the Cat
The mystery of the girls' father deepens, and we learn a bit about the man behind the conspiracy...

Remember, on the lookout for editors and timers!

Kitaro's Night Tales chapter 26

And here it is! a new chapter where Kitaro confronts the water God.

PS, to our you guys want us to continue Green Blood, with recent events and Mangastream?

Green Blood chapter 28

We can thank Music Otaku for this gem. As it appeared to be dropped, and given what a huge fan I am of it, we decided to bring more Green Blood to fans who love the story, even if we're limited to the magazine raws, but if anyone wants to help with the volume raws, we are more than happy to work alongside anyone for such a great manga.

Green Blood is set in 1800s America, starting in Five Points New York, and moving out to the western frontier with all the usual tropes: vengeance, gangs, corrupt land owners, gunslingers, assassins...the works. It's written and drawn by Kakizaki Masasumi who is an artist on par with Inoue, Samura, Itoh and Ikegamin in my eyes, and who blends the tropes together into a compelling story of brotherhood, honor, revenge and keeping one's humanity in the darkest of hours.

When we last left them, our heroes Brad and Luke Burns have been hunting their father, the evil Edward King. their search's led them out west, where they've been staying with Anne Macey and her daughter jenny. The boys were able to bond with Anne, but Charles Howard, who wants Anne's land hired 'Fast-Draw Hawk', a notorious killer, to eliminate Anne.

The story now picks up in the aftermath...and if we know Westerns, we know there's a showdown coming.

Thanks to Music, and to Mangastream and Easy Going Scans for introducing us all to this manga. I hope its fans enjoy it. And please remember we're on the lookout for those who can help with web design, cleaners, typesetters and timers.

Tree In The Sunlight Chapter 8, and Ryujin Numa Chapter 2: The Night Has a Thousand Eyes

Here's a new chapter of the history epic by Tezuka! Chapter 8

And Ryujin Numa's second story. A tale of a father who returns home, with his children in care of a kind tutor, but someone wants them dead...a touching story, especially the end. Throughout it, the song 'The Night Has a Thousand eyes' is also quite prevalent. This is Ishinomori at his absolute best.

Here's the second story

Something very special coming from Music very shortly, alongside our new Nagai series from him as well. For now, we'd appreciate cleaners, typesetters and timers, too.

Be-bop High School vol. 02 ch. 13

Protect and serve for the right price!
You know this whole chapter reminds me of an old wrestling tag team from the old WWF days, you know the one cause thats right! The Acolytes Protection Agency! As to why, I kind of see the similaritys in them because both duos are badasses, they curse a ton and they just kick the shit out of anyone. Why don't we all go around sharing our favorite tag teams, mine would either be between the attuitude era Hardy Boyz, The Heart Foundation and Los Gurreros. Special mentions are DX, The Rock 'n' Sock Connection and Edge and Christan the additue era ones. Share yours in the comments below. 

Also always looking out for more editors and timers!

Vagabond chapter 318

Oh, look what's back. Another exciting chapter of the harvest saga!

Blazing Nobunaga chapter 1

NINJAMAN!!! and no not the one from kakurangers.

Aw! yeah here we go! yet another amazing Shimamoto project, or should I say blazing? One of these days I feel someone needs to ask whats Shimamotos obession with the work blazing. Still this is a great little one off that spoofs the life of Nobunaga pretty darn cleverly. Also note this, we found out this was actually a sequel to another Shimamoto manga called Ninjaman, we had already started on Nobunaga long before then. So if your dead set on reading Ninjaman first we'll do it eventually, but first we bring you Blazing Nobunaga. 

Also looking out for more cleaners typesetters and timers.

Blazing Transfer Student vol. 06 ch. 53

Ibukis words of wisdom.

Okay, I'll start...

Ryuujin Numa, chapter 1: Dragon Pond

Who loves some Shotaro Ishinomori? You bet we do.

Thanks to Music Otaku, as we wait for the QC of the next Tenku chapter, we can bring you the first of Shotaro Ishinomori's short stories in the book Ryujin Numa: Dragon Pond, concerning myths, legends and the wonderful storytelling that we've come to expect from the Sensei.

This was a rather important book, and helped inspire many writers like Moto Hagio, Keiko Takemiya and others. It's another gem we're glad to bring you.

At the same time, if anyone can help with some typesetting, we'd really appreciate it, particularly to close the gaps on Cat's Eye chapters now, and anything else.

Here's the first story: Dragon Pond!
