Village Idiot’s 9th Anniversary

Hello everyone,

I know we’ve had a slow year, but we are still around, and to prove it, here are a few releases for our 9th anniversary. We’re not entirely sure how many chapters we’ll have, but I hope you enjoy.

  • First we have: The Migratory Forest – A Collection of Walks A collection of very interesting short stories, and very well-drawn. If you like seinen, you’ll love this, so please give it a try. Thank you to our partners on the project Illuminati-Manga, I hope we can work together again in the future (GGpX, come baaaaaack…!). The trigger is !kaiyuu.
  • Next we bring you another chapter of Amagi Brilliant Park. It’s a very funny chapter, brought to you with the help of Eastern Atelier. The trigger is !amagi11.

I wish we could bring you more manga like we have in the past, but we need new members to re-energize the group. Even one new translator would be a big help. If you think you can help, please apply, we can also partner up with a translator that has a project in mind. If you can’t volunteer, please consider donating. Lastly, thank you to all those who have donated in the past, we need all the all the help we can get. 

Sentou Jousai Masurawo, final chapter

The end for this series has come. I am proud (and relieved!) to have seen it through. We picked this series up 22 months ago and despite losing some staff along the way we chugged along and made it to the finish line! Many thanks to everyone that’s ever helped us with this series! Royal, the translator, has graciously included some spoilers from the light novels (which take place after the manga) at the end of the chapter for you readers to enjoy!

Trigger is !masurawo22

Sentou Jousai Masurawo chapter 21

Look at us, dead for over 2 weeks and this is my first release in… a very long time. We have one chapter left in this series until it is DONE DONE DONE. Rejoice…when the time comes.

Trigger is !masurawo21


Another series that was supposed to be released for the anniversary, but it was more work than anticipated. It had been kindly translated by galiane many, many mooons ago, but it’s finally done and now you can read this cute and funny series.

SO HERE IT IS. A one volume work by mangaka Unita Yumi. Usagi Drop is probably her most popular series, but I am personally a bigger fan of her shorter works. I’d love to bring more of her stuff to VI, but we’ll see. If you’re interested in translating…! *hint hint*


Nanako, who was about to graduate with no job lined up, found work at an old tailoring shop as an apprentice under the curt – but kind-hearted – skilled tailor Hirata-san. Nanako is energetically and steadily improving!

Many thanks to the kind staff who were bullied asked to work on it! galiane, Raukcaran, Azuma, Aurega and Usha <3 Trigger is !itohen

Levi 14

Better late than never :D

soranokira Edit: anyway this is also the final chapter, which concludes vol. 1 of the LN. For continuation, please read the LNs. :D

And finally, thank you to all our supporters, fellow scanlators, and donors.

I also wanted to note that with this mass release we have managed to pass 2000 releases. It’s a great accomplishment and I want to thank all current and past staff for all their work.

Let’s have a few laughs and service with konosuba and levi!

Dare ga Tame ni Hagane wa Naru chapter 4

Welp, a couple days turned into four days and only one chapter instead of two. Still, everything from this series is cute. We’re already progressing a bit as far as time goes and while that’s to be expected (it’s one volume after all), I wish Micchan would have stayed 10 years old a bit longer.

Trigger is !hagane4

Sentou Jousai Masurawo chapter 20 & Sing Yesterday for Me chapter 87

Made it just in time before the end of the month. Some good news: we’re reviving an old series that hasn’t seen a release in almost 2 years. It’s complete at 4 volumes and we’d only finished the first. We did not pick up the series from the beginning, but rather took over after another group had released several chapters. Any guesses?


Dare ga Tame ni Hagane wa Naru chapter 3

I’m on a roll with this releasing stuff! This chapter threw me off a bit and it’s only going to go faster in future chapters since this series is only 7 chapters total (the 7th being the epilogue). Kitsune’s reaction to a classmate of Micchan’s is hilarious. Trigger is !hagane3

Oh yeah, we need CLEANERS and TRANSLATORS. If you’ve never cleaned before, make sure you at least read some tutorials and practice on your own before applying because I simply do not have the time to train (and neither does anyone else).
