When she decides not to tell any adults, it's up to her classmates to help her through this ordeal. (Note: This is not loli. Sex happens off-screen and the artwork is not fan-servicey.)

I read this like two months ago and suddenly remembered it again.
It's so interesting. Thanks for scanlating it!

#2 admin on 08.24.09 at 4:06 pm

#6 admin on 11.23.09 at 7:00 pm

Sorry it's been so long. I've been really busy, but I definitely plan to have another chapter out next month.

#7 Guest on 12.05.09 at 6:16 pm

I couldn't wait and took a lightning quick look at the entire remaining manga (raw). Now I'm more impatient for the scanlations.

#8 admin on 12.05.09 at 7:59 pm

I hope to have a chapter out this month sometime!

#9 Zen on 03.24.10 at 4:57 pm

Sorry, but where did you find the raw? I'm really looking forward to read it!! :D
I'd be very thankful if you could tell me where to find it

#10 megchan on 03.24.10 at 11:00 pm

#11 pirana75 on 03.05.10 at 11:07 am

I really liked this manga but unfortunatly there are only ony the first three chapters, I'm DESPERATLY looking for the whole manga in english. Could you please tell me if you have finished where I can download it (if possible as a winzip file) or buy it? Please do not put your answer(s) only on this forum/site but send them also to pirana75@hotmail.com
Many thanks in advance

#12 megchan on 03.05.10 at 1:16 pm

There are only the first three chapters because that's all I've translated so far. I will add future chapters here when I have a chance to translate them.

#13 Pirana75 on 08.03.10 at 2:04 pm

I'm back after a car accident caused by a drunk woman… How far are you with the scanalations as I am most interested and use this manga in school projects to inform pupils(I 've some questions to ask by mail, if it iss still possible)

#14 megchan on 08.03.10 at 2:54 pm

All the chapters I've scanlated are here.

Here are the raws: http://www.megaupload.com/?d=AMEDJOK2

Thanks in advance & kind regards

#16 alice on 08.03.10 at 6:06 pm

the manga is great and i want to say thank you for uploading it on the net for the masses to read but i would like to know if you are going to scan any new ones up soon thank you very much you are an awesome person

#17 megchan on 08.03.10 at 6:21 pm

Yes, I plan on finishing the entire 3-volume series. However, I don't know when I will get the next chapter done. Hopefully within the next couple months.

#18 Mariana on 09.30.10 at 11:22 am

Look guys are u still working on this manga? I really like it i want to see the chapter 5 please hurry up with an anser.

#19 megchan on 09.30.10 at 1:46 pm

Yes, I'm still working on it.

#20 Mariana on 10.03.10 at 4:58 pm

When do u think chapter 5 will be done?

#21 megchan on 10.03.10 at 5:00 pm

Hopefully sometime in the next couple months. Sorry it's been so long.

#22 Mariana on 10.15.10 at 12:36 pm

Look guys there is a manga with no releases just one and i would like you for u to try to continue that manga.
The manga is "happy trouble weeding"

#23 megchan on 10.15.10 at 6:28 pm

I'm sorry, but I already have my hands full. I understand being frustrated about a dropped series, but according to Baka Updates, Happy Trouble Wedding is an ongoing series, already seven volumes long, and I just don't have the time to commit to another project that long.

Hopefully some other group will pick it up eventually. It sounds interesting.

#24 Mariana on 10.15.10 at 12:36 pm

P.S.: Sorry for my english i'm portuguese and sometimes is hard to explain myself.

#25 Mariana on 12.01.10 at 3:09 pm

Sorry to bother but the 6 chapter of "Child's child" it would be release this month? And how long it will take?

#26 megchan on 12.01.10 at 3:11 pm

Hopefully I'll have the next chapter posted sometime this month.

#27 Stephan on 12.18.10 at 8:36 pm

Could you please try to make more scantilations faster since your last one was April 16, 2010. I really want to read the rest of this and there are only 4 chapters out. it would be really nice if you could get the rest of the 3 volumes in as soon as possible thank you.

#28 megchan on 12.19.10 at 1:27 am

I'm glad you enjoy it, but this is something I do by myself in my free time. I am working as fast as I can on it.

#29 Mariana on 12.30.10 at 1:52 pm

Hi you said that you were going to release the new chapter this month but that probly wont happen are u?

#30 Aida on 05.14.11 at 7:55 am

Wow. I haven't started reading this series yet, but it sounds interesting. Just commenting to commend you on dealing with such rude readers while still having the motivation to keep going. I'll probably also grab the Azumanga Supplementary Materials. Thanks for sharing and don't listen to the pushy bastards. Take your time! :D

#31 megchan on 05.14.11 at 12:11 pm

Thank you! Most people who comment are wonderful, so I can deal with a few annoying/pushy ones. ^_^;;

#32 pirana75 on 05.15.11 at 5:58 am

I was happy to find another scanlated chapter online. You're doing an amazing good job. I hope you can continue this job. I'm looking forward to reading the next chapters :)
Good luck;)-

#33 megchan on 05.15.11 at 9:20 am

I'm glad you're enjoying it. Hopefully I will get another chapter out next month. :)

#34 Erinna on 05.15.11 at 7:41 am

Hey there!

I stumbled across this manga and am so glad I did. Thank you so much for scanlating it, it's super appreciated. I've donated a bit to help with server costs, so you can continue this awesome project!

Thanks so much for your hard work!

#35 megchan on 05.15.11 at 9:20 am

Thanks for the donation! :)

#36 Millo on 08.06.11 at 4:57 pm

Mehchan, thankyou for scanlating this series, if you didn't scanlate it, i wouldn't ever find this amazing manga.

#37 megchan on 08.06.11 at 9:35 pm

#45 Pirana75 on 12.04.11 at 3:51 am

I do understand you're doing this in your spare time and you have a lot of work with your other projects too, but please don't forget about this one.
You're doing a great job

#46 megchan on 12.04.11 at 2:04 pm

I haven't forgotten about it. It's the manga I'm updating *most often*. Which, yeah, I realise is still not super often compared to groups that update every week or every month, but I have added four new chapers this year and if you read the other comments, have repeatedly stated that I'm in the middle of chapter 9 and plan to have it out before the end of the year, so it's pretty clear I haven't forgotten about it.

#47 Pirana75 on 12.04.11 at 4:34 pm

OK Megchan, don't take things badly it was just a little remark. I didn't want to hurt or to push you. It is just great to read this manga in English.

#48 libraryrocker on 12.27.11 at 1:27 am

Kodomo no Kodomo is sooooo awesome thank you so much for your hard work and dedication to the project!!!

#49 megchan on 12.27.11 at 1:33 am

Thank you! Glad you're enjoying it. :)

#50 Good383 on 01.01.12 at 9:29 pm

#51 Good383 on 01.02.12 at 6:37 pm

Hey megchan do you know when you are going to release the next chapter.

#52 megchan on 01.02.12 at 8:05 pm

No, I don't. Hopefully within a couple months. First I'm going to work on Yasha, though.

#53 Maruko on 05.26.12 at 3:31 am

Thank you <3

It's getting so close to the end now! Just nine more chapters. I'm planning at least one chapter a month, but since it's so close to being done, I might try to do it even faster. (I'm excited about finishing it! This will be the longest project I've finished on my own.)

You're welcome! :D

#86 Junior on 05.19.14 at 5:49 pm

Just caught up with everything you have translated so far. Thank you so much for picking this up! This is such a change of pace from most of the series we all read, and so far it has been great! I could easily see people giving up on this because there's not your 'typical' manga characters, but this story is amazing and I can not thank you enough for sticking with it! I am going to go ahead and look at the raws, but I know I can not wait to see the rest of it translated.

#87 megchan on 05.20.14 at 8:53 pm

I'm glad you're enjoying it! :) It's definitely a unique manga.

#88 Chris on 07.24.14 at 8:20 pm

This is an amazing scanlation. Thank you so much. Can't wait to read the ending.

Glad you're enjoying it! :)

#90 Tsukiko on 09.28.14 at 3:33 am

My gosh! I've been reading this non-stop so far tonight and I just got to chapter 23… it's so beautiful how these kids are so much like a real community! As soon as I got to the part where her classmates are bringing in gifts, I couldn't help crying… So beautiful.. Thank you very much for scanlating this series, It's a good manga and really well done scanlation.

#91 megchan on 09.28.14 at 11:47 am

Glad you're enjoying it! I should have the final chapter posted tomorrow or Tuesday. :)

#92 Tsukiko on 09.28.14 at 8:19 pm
