Happy 5th anniversary, Village Idiot!!

It brings me great pleasure to announce our fifth anniversary. (It seems I’m always in the right place and time to be the first to announce anything. XD) Over the past year, we’ve completed a few projects and picked up quite a few more, but what marked last year as being special is reaching our 1000th release! We have also gained quite a few staff members, though we still need more. What didn’t change was your support for us! And to celebrate that, we’ll be releasing a bundle of chapters today. Please look out for them here as the day progresses.

As always, we need donations and staff to keep bringing you these awesome manga, so please help us by donating to us using the panel on the right, or applying to one of our vacant positions! Thank you!

I really wanted to thank all the staff for all their hard work, there were a few standouts that I want to personally mention. These are people that worked extremely hard this past week on projects I managed, They are Klauz Miene, Fenrill, Sjiveru, J-Rex, Savino, and KaiHeartnet. I also want to mention 3 staff members that worked hard but we weren’t able to release their work, and they are Abacus, Laika, and Raukcaran. I want all the readers to help me thank them too, I want to see more comments than releases guys, its not that hard to comment, we need the motivation.


Chocolat 61 & Sekitou Elegy 46-47!

There is a great tragedy this chapter… a… a… perfectly good cake…! *runs into the sunset, sobbing dramatically*

M-moving on, here’s another chapter of Chocolat thanks to: Admra, Beryl, Bizkit, Azuma, Psi

Trigger: !choco61

Aaaaaand a late night treat! We’re pleased to bring you a two part chapter of Sekitou Elegy… just in time for Christmas, with our partners over at Blue Flor. This chapter tastes like chicken and beer, which is kind of a nice summation of their awkward but nice relationship.

Staff: Yuuko-san, blueberry, Freijie, Cloud04, Heleleo. (Make sure to go thank Blue Flor, too! They can also be reached at #IRC-distro on irchighway.net)

Triggers: !se46 & !se47 (same on both chans)

Also, is anyone interested in Toume Kei’s work (among others)? We need cleaners, typesetters, and a proofreader, so come and apply to viscans@gmail.com!

Sekitou Elegy 45 with BlueFlor! (!se45)

Another chapter of everyone’s favorite couple!

Ok, well, maybe not everyone’s, but I like this series. It’s a lot more honest about how a lot of relationships work. Life is awkward, so why can’t manga be the same? Oh, because it’s cringy as hell? Oops…

Regardless, come check out the next chapter of SE, done in cooperation with Blue Flor. Go drop by and say hi, they don’t bite.

Trigger is !se45.

We still want staff, believe it or not. We have a bunch of stuff that can’t be put out without all of ya, so apply if interested!

Sekitou Elegy 44! (!se44)

Geez, so this was released without my knowledge by another admin who decided not to make a post.

Here’s a chapter of SE, it’s been a while, but this finishes up volume 4.

A big ol’ thanks to Khawateen from Blue Flor, who came in and decided to help us with translation. We’ll have more regular releases from now on. :D


Sekitou Elegy 43

Hey all,

So out of the goodness of my own sweet little heart, I translated chapter 43 of Sekitou Elegy, which is one of my favorite series that we do. Sadly, the manga is just a touch outside my Japanese comfort zone, so it is still in need of a translator. If you or someone you know can handle a series in Kansai dialect that is otherwise pretty simple then apply, damn it!

Also, big thanks to Raukcaran for proofing, Hinokai for cleaning, and Nanaseru for typesetting.

IRC trigger is !se43

Sekitou Elegy 42, Ichiban 32, and Tokyo Innocent 28!

Triggers are !se42, !ichi32, and !ti28.

Here are three chapters as an early x-mas gift to all of our readers. Enjoy!

Village Idiot is still looking for staff of all positions to help speed up our releases. We especially would like for experienced cleaners, redrawers, and translators to join us. If you have any experience and want to help put out some quality series, send us an application! We’d love to have you.

Sekitou Elegy Chapter 35

Comyna passed by and quickly translated this chapter. It’s a nice chapter go read it quickly. And all you students on summer vacation don’t forget to apply, I got a feeling it’s gonna be a very busy summer.

5 Chapter Batch

Well here are a few chapters, we worked on these all week and some a bit more than that…

  • Hoshi no Furu Machi: !hnf30
    • Here we go with volume 4…
  • Shinya Shokudo: !shin7
    •  An interesting series, I recommend everyone read this series.
  • Sekitou Elegy: !se34
    • Well if hnf is starting on volume 4 might as well have se too!
  • Suddenly, the Marriage Partner Showed up: !swt8 + !swt9
    • A little delayed but here are the last two chapters of Sore wa Totsuzen, Unmei no Aite ga in volume 2. Volume 3 has already been released and we should have the raws by the end of the month so don’t expect anything till April.

I want to thank all the staff that worked on these projects, its not easy work and it takes time we could use doing something else. If you readers could do the same by leaving a comment I would truly appreciate it.

BTW I’m still looking for a re-drawer/cleaner for Ruler for the Land!

Hoshi No FuruMachi Chapter 29 and Sekitou Elegy Chapter 33

I thought it would be fun to release these 2 together since each chapter ends their respective third volume, which is a fun coincidence. While Sekitou Elegy was really funny, Hoshi no Furumachi reveals the aftermath of a dramatic 28th chapter. Two short chapters, but I’m sure all their fans will enjoy and hope for less cliffhangers! :o

Looking for cleaners, especially for Ruler of the Land!



pizzach says about hnf29: this is the chapter that Tsutsumi starts humping tree stumps D:

Hoshi no Furu Machi Chapter 24, Sekitou Elegy Chapter 32, The Ruler of the Land Chapter 40

I wanted to make a special release today for Presidents Day here in the US. So the VI staff and I worked on these all day.

First, we have Hoshi no Furu Machi and whoa are things heating up. Give it a read, it’s good.

I took over quality checking SE from Edward since he’s so busy and I hope it’s up to his standards.

Lastly, we have Ruler of the Land. I put this one off for so long. I really wanted all the redraws to look great, but I wasn’t able to do them myself. I really want to call this a v0 or pre-release since it feels incomplete. I’m releasing it in hopes that someone will see it and join us to help.

Those are the releases, I hope you know where to get them, so what are you waiting for? Go get them! (Better not be mangafox, I tell you whut)

Even though I released Ruler of the Land it doesn’t change the fact that we still need a cleaner for it…
