Saint Young Men ch. 8

Well, this post may be both good news and bad news for some. The good news is, here is a new chapter of Saint Young Men! The bad news is, this is the last one I will be doing. I decided a long time ago that I couldn't keep up with this series anymore (I didn't realise it would be so long running when I started it, and now the thought of all that work is just too overwhelming for me), but I have always wanted to finish up the first volume so that at least that would be "complete". (And considering how episodic this series is, if all you ever read is this one volume, you're not left with any cliffhangers or anything.) I just checked Baka Updates, though, and it does look like there's a group who's working on it pretty consistently right now, so that's good.

Anyway, here is the final chapter of volume one. I will be uploading a complete file of the volume within the next couple days, but for now it's just the chapter by itself.

Thank you for finishing this volume! And I have to kick myself for not checking this series status on BakaUpdates, I'm feels a bit down when you reply me on LJ that you'll drop the series after finishing the 1st volume. Now I'm gonna check the rest of the series(hopefully the translations and side note great).
Thank you!

Yeah, I was kind of surprised to see someone had picked it up, too. There were a few chapters released a while back, but that group didn't continue. I have no idea of the quality of these new chapters, but either way, something is better than nothing, so I'm glad someone has picked it up.
