Juusan Yasou Kidan ch. 3-4

I was originally working on this project with HotCakes, but they have disappeared and I decided to go ahead and finish it on my own. There are five remaining stories, but only two of them are full length and the other three are very short, so today I have the third (long) and fourth (short) and the next and final update will be sometime in the next couple months with the last three stories (one long and two short).

In addition, since HotCakes' website no longer exists, I have uploaded the first story here even though I did not work on that one, just so that the whole volume can be preserved together.

Summary: In "He Won't Love Me", everyone knows Yasuda has a crush on Honda Yuka, AKA Yuka-chan-senpai, but that doesn't deter Akira from confessing her feelings to him. But when he agrees to go out with her, she finds it's harder than she thought to be with someone who has feelings for someone else.

You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead ch. 27 + one-shot

Title: You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead
Original Title: 死人の声をきくがよい (Shibito no Koe wo Kiku ga Yoi)
Author: Hiyodori Sachiko (Uguisu Sachiko)
Publisher: Champion Red Comics
Genre: Shounen
Status in Japan: 10 volumes, ongoing

Summary: Sickly Kishida Jun has the ability to see ghosts, but in his opinion, it's a stupid power and nothing good ever comes of it. Considering the number of grisly situations he seems to find himself in after the ghost of his childhood friend Hayakawa Ryoko starts following him around, he may have a point.

Chapter Summary: In the final part of this mini arc, Kishida and his friends must find their way back to the world of the living.

Chapter 27: Yomotsuhirasaka of the Mind

This volume also includes an unrelated one-shot call The Mysterious Tale of Yumi-chan, in which a young girl's life is forever changed when her older sister brings home a strange child. Although this is not part of the main series and doesn't feature Kishida or any of the other characters, it's very similar to the type of horror stories in You Will Hear the Voice of the Dead, so I recommend checking it out.

And this brings us to the end of volume four, so here is a full volume download for those who want it.

Somehow it's been three years since I released the first story in this collection of one shots. I don't know how that happened. Anyway, this one is long (90 pages!) so I guess that's my excuse. :p

Wind Singer

Today I have some more vintage shoujo manga by Yoshida Akimi for you. This collection of one-shots was begun by HotCakes, but their translator dropped out after one story, so I'll be continuing it with them. The first story, At Summer's End, can be found on their site.

There are seven stories total, and since they're all unrelated one-shots, the release pace will probably be pretty sporadic, but I hope you'll enjoy each one as we manage to get them posted!
