Hansel and Gretel

 The Otomo Committee is proud to present: 

It's been a couple of months since the last Katsuhiro Otomo short story release, but boy do we have a beauty: the entire Hansel and Gretel short story collection from 1981!

That's a whopping 21 chapters from a rare, out of print collection! Expect to pay top dollar for a second hand copy on auction sites.

As for the actual collection, this is Otomo's twisted take on some classic fairy tales. (Do bible stories count as fairy tales?)

NieA_7 - Chapter 3-b

Oh lucky you! You get two releases in one day.

Some more NieA_7 fun for everyone. Mayuko has no clothes after NieA blew up her room in chapter 2, so she's had to dig out some old clothes...
(And yes, this is the second chapter 3).

Hatoful Boyfriend - Final Chapter

Today we bring you Chapter 16 of Hatoful Boyfriend!
Apparently this is the last chapter of the manga. I still remember when the game was first announced, I laughed and went, "Oh, Japan, what have you done now." Then I played it for the lulz and cried. By the time the manga was announced, I was so deep into the fandom, I had to pick it up! X3
I'd like to thank Crazydominodragongirl for translating all the chapters, Nazerine for translating the game, Moa for writing it, and of course, all you lovely birdies out there for sharing the pigeon love!
Here's looking forward to seeing our beloved pigeons again soon, as well as Moa's next work (Black Holmes plz)!

Updates on the status of Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun!

I've been getting quite a few messages about this, so I figured I'd make a post for it. So many of you wonderful people have been offering us RAWs for Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun when you found out we couldn't scanlate the old chapters :)
Now that we've acquired RAWs, we're simply lacking a dedicated translator to translate them from Japanese to English. Don't worry though, we've got ~3 translators who says they'll slowly work on the old chapters when they have time :)
Thank you all for your continued support! m(_ _)m

Kyoukai no Rinne - Chapter 148

Day 28
Happy Roselia birthday to me!

Yup, today's a happy day! I joined Roselia Scans roughly one year ago. I first signed up to translate Kyoukai no Rinne (my first chapter was 107!) and things kinda flowed along since then.

After I joined, I got greedy and wanted to try translating lots of more series! First up was Rumic Theater. Then I bugged and bugged Dou? scans for 6 months to let me steal takeover Kabu no Isaki. It didn't stop there! Captain Alice, NieA_7, Koukaku no Pandora, and more.

I feel very lucky to have such an awesome team to work with. So thanks to them too, and their support in whatever I do. I live in Japan, so it's a pretty cool feeling being able to walk into any manga shop and say: "Hey! I wanna scan and release that"; and lo and behold one week later it's released.

Roselia Scans has grown a lot in the last year; both in terms of members and output. It's a pretty fun place to hang around! And we're always looking for more members, so feel free to drop by the forums and say hi.

And yeah, here's the next chapter of Rinne, and with that volume 15 is finished. It feels kinda fitting to release Rinne today, the series I first worked on...

tl;dr Here's Rinne!

Hatoful Boyfriend Chapter 15

Happy Labor Day, all you US people!
It's Day 27 of our daily release challenge (Man, we're crazy, I know) and we've finally caught up with the Hatoful Boyfriend manga \o/
Now this chapter blatantly advertises volume 1 of the tankobon and Moa opened a Q&A for fans for it, so translator crazydominodragongirl has stated in her blog that if you submitted a question and got in, she'll send you your answer! Good luck everybirdie, and have a great day~

Kabu no Isaki: Chapter 38 and Volume releases

Day 26

Here's another chapter of Kabu no Isaki, and with it the end of Volume five.

Kabu no Isaki - Chapter 38

Also, I thought this would be a good chance to release the combined volumes for four and five. I did a minor bit of polishing here and there with a few typos etc.

Kabu no Isaki - Volume 04
Kabu no Isaki - Volume 05

Volume six is the final volume, only 10 chapters left. The countdown starts here!
