A while back, we posted a couple Nishioka Kyodai one-shots taken from magazines, including the title story from this collection. If you liked that story, or indeed, anything else by Nishioka Kyodai, I highly recommend checking this out.

Thank you so much for this. Do you plan on releasing more Nishioka Kyoudai stuff in the future? I really love their work and I would appreciate more.

We do! We're working on another of their early collection, Jigoku (Hell) right now. Like with Me-Bug, because their one-shots tend to be so short, we decided it was best to release it as a full volume, rather than chapter by chapter. I expect we'll have it ready for release within the next couple months.

The other one that's already been scanned and is on the list is their illustrated version of selected Franz Kafka works. If there's more of their stuff that hasn't been scanlated, we will probably tackle it in the future, too. Habanero Scans is the one who's been doing the scanning, so it's really up to him providing the raws, but he's a big fan of Nishioka Kyodai, so it seems likely.

That's wonderful news! I've been a big fan of them for years and I'm happy to see more of their works (finally) getting scanlated. I am now patiently awaiting both of those releases and (hopefully) even more. I really appreciate this.
