Thanks so much for scanlating this! I'm watching the drama adaptation of Yasha, and I'm interested in seeing what the original story is like.

You're welcome! I'm working on chapter 2 now, so hopefully it won't be too much longer.

Thanks, glad you're enjoying it. :) It's definitely a long project and I'm kind of intimidated about it if I think about it too much, but I really love this series. I can't believe no one's translated it before.

#7 hinata on 10.07.09 at 2:04 pm

Thank you so much for the second chapter! I really love this series! Can't wait for more to come!

#16 faechilde on 08.14.10 at 12:52 am

Thanks a bunch for doing this project. I only became aware of it with the ch03 release and look forward to reading it. :)

#17 megchan on 08.14.10 at 12:55 am

You're welcome! Hopefully future releases will be quicker than they have been…

#18 kohala on 08.14.10 at 6:21 am

Thank you so much!!! I was thinking you dropped this project! But I'm so happy now!!

#19 megchan on 08.14.10 at 6:25 am

I haven't dropped anything. Just been really slow. ^_^;; I'm glad there are people still interested.

#20 kelvin on 10.02.10 at 11:47 pm

#21 megchan on 10.02.10 at 11:50 pm

You're welcome! I'm working on the next chapter now. :)

#22 Kikuchan on 03.21.11 at 5:15 am

I can't thank you enough for translating this – it's one of my all time favourite stories! I struggled my way through the original volumes, dictionary to hand, but it will be great to be able to read it fluidly. Great job on the first volume, look forward to more :-)

#23 megchan on 03.21.11 at 11:12 am

You're welcome! I'm trying to finish up volume 1 of A Child's Child here, but if I can do that at a rate of one chapter month-ish, I should be back to Yasha in a few months. (At which point I'll be alternating the two of them again.)

#24 R A on 07.04.11 at 9:09 pm

I'm so glad you've decided to work on Yasha!! I've been hoping somebody would pick it up after the other scanlators stopped years ago.

#25 megchan on 07.04.11 at 9:35 pm

Glad you're enjoying it! :D I hope to get back to it in a couple months (I took a break to catch up a bit more with one of the other series I'm scanlating).

#26 vrangbord on 11.13.11 at 7:56 am

What a great manga, and a great translation too. :D Thank you so much for translating it!

#27 Claire on 07.01.12 at 4:43 pm

Thanks so much for taking the time to do this! TT_TT I started to watch the dorama also.
I hope the next chapter comes out soon.

#28 megchan on 07.01.12 at 9:30 pm

I had hoped to have the next chapter out by the end of June, but I didn't quite get it done in time. It should be ready sometime this week, though!

#29 Claire on 07.09.12 at 4:18 pm

That´s great, you´re the best ^^

#30 Claire on 08.01.12 at 10:46 am

Yaaaaay, thanks for the new chapter!
I already saw the drama series and I loved it *-*
It`s different but it was still very good.

#31 megchan on 08.01.12 at 12:28 pm

Yeah, I saw the drama years ago and remember it being quite different, but I did enjoy it (though I like the manga better).

#32 kinu on 08.23.12 at 12:05 pm

I loved BananaFish and bought everything published in my country. I enjoyed liveaction Yasha, and I'm thrilled to see you're scanlating the manga! Long overdue. Thank you so much!

#33 megchan on 08.23.12 at 12:12 pm

Glad you're enjoying it. :) Hopefully I should have a new chapter out next month.

#34 Claire on 10.01.12 at 5:09 am

Thank you so much for the new chapter! :D

#35 megchan on 10.01.12 at 9:24 am

You're welcome! :)

#36 kinu on 11.21.12 at 12:57 am

Thanks for another chapter! <3

#37 heehee on 11.24.12 at 4:47 am

I'm looking forward to more! Thanks for working on this <3

#38 Claire on 02.21.13 at 9:35 am

Don´t want to sound like an annoying fangirl :P, but will you release a new chapter soon?

#39 megchan on 02.21.13 at 10:03 pm

Since it's been taking me so long, I decided to split the next chapter in two and hope to have the first half (about 20 pages) posted this weekend. And hopefully not that long til the second half; I've been busy with a project that should be done with today and then I can get back into the swing of things.

#40 Claire on 03.03.13 at 8:42 am

Thanks for the new chapter! And thanks for all the hard work. I can imagine that Yasha is a pretty difficult manga to translate :S

#41 megchan on 03.03.13 at 8:49 pm

Sometimes it's easy, but this chapter was so talky and I always end up dragging my feet when there are huge blocks of text on the page. :p The second half of the chapter's not as bad, though. :)

#42 kazue on 11.16.13 at 1:49 pm

Thank you so much for this! It's wonderful that someone scantrad this awesome manga!
I really hope you'll be able to make it througt the 12 volumes! (please please pretty please ç_ç lol )
I read a bit of japanese and sometimes this manga is kind of easy to understand and then BAM, pages full of text and kanji brrr lol you are very brave to translate it!
Thanks again! ^____^

#43 megchan on 11.16.13 at 7:59 pm

It will take a while, but I definitely plan to complete the series! Now that I have someone helping me with the typesetting, etc. and I'm getting a chapter out every month, I should be able to get out two vols. per year, so at least it's moving faster than it was… ^_^;;

#44 Anna on 03.02.15 at 6:13 am

Hi! Thank you so much for translating this series! I can only imagine the amount of time and work you've spent in this project… Amazing job! And amazing series!
^___^ Thanks!

#45 megchan on 03.02.15 at 11:53 am

Glad you're enjoying it! :D

#46 GiangCao on 04.09.15 at 8:45 am

i'm really loving this manga. and the translation reads so smoothly. thanks so much for your hard work and generosity in translating this and sharing. i am looking forward to this manga's completion.

#53 megchan on 09.28.16 at 11:00 pm

Glad you're enjoying it!

I'm looking forward to completing it, too! When I started this project it seemed so daunting, but now there's just three volumes to go. It should be done before the end of next year!

#54 Irene on 08.27.17 at 2:52 am

Thank you! Thank you very much! I really like this manga and your translation is perfect! And what about Eve no Nemuri (Yasha Next Generation) by Yoshida Akimi? Will you translate it too? I hope you will ^^

#55 megchan on 08.27.17 at 10:06 am

Yep, definitely planning to translate the sequel! I actually never read that one back in the day, so it will be new to me, too. :)

#56 meodien1812 on 08.15.18 at 11:57 pm

I've been away for two years and now when I'm back this series is completed. Wow It feels just like yesterday, the very first day that you guys picked up the series!

Life is up and down but thanks a lot for always being here.

#57 megchan on 08.16.18 at 12:31 am

Hope you enjoy the ending!

#58 Manana on 08.17.20 at 10:12 pm

Banana fish got me here, I just finished reading all the volumes of Yasha! In case anyone wonders, Sing appears in volume 8! Thank you so much for your hard work, I enjoyed this, it has drama, action, science, I have learned a lot! Eventough it was written 20 years ago, it's so accurate and maybe there's already someone like Rin and Sei locked in a lab.
You are the only ones that translated all so I cannot thank you enough!

#59 megchan on 08.18.20 at 9:03 am

Glad you liked it!
