Fushigi na Shounen chapter 16

“Never say you can’t do something.”

We’re finally done with this monster of a chapter and now volume 5 is complete. Many thanks to Kristjan for typesetting the bulk of the chapter and Azuma for his thorough QC. And I cannot forget to thank Everath for the color redraws because I was too lazy. :) It looks awesome! Enjoy!

Fushigi na Shounen chapter 18

Here we are five months later with a new chapter from Fushigi na Shounen. Even if you, the reader, aren’t wondering why chapters take so long, I’m going to tell you anyway. There are five chapters in each volume and three of those chapters are 80 pages long. The other two chapters are 40 pages long. (If you do the math, that’s well over 100 more pages the average 200 page tankobon.) I thought about breaking up each 80-pager as part A and part B, but then the reader wouldn’t get the full experience and honestly, it could be just as long for part B to be released so might as well lump it altogether.

I discovered last November that the series resumed hiatus after 4 years because volume 9 was published in October 2014. This causes for celebration! Chapter 16 is halfway typeset so I *hope* it won’t be too much longer. Meanwhile, enjoy chapter 18! Trigger is !fns18

Fushigi na Shounen chapter 15

This chapter has been ready for some time and I had planned to release it with another series, but the other series isn’t ready so… why wait. It’s been awhile since the last Fushigi na Shounen chapter after all. The raws are a bit of a pain to clean because the print is faded and it’s very easy to lose the gray tones (I’m sure I lost some, but whatever).

Anyway, this chapter is about a 40-year-old office lady. There isn’t as much dialogue compared to previous chapters, but it’s still wonderful. In fact, I think this is one of my favorites so far. Trigger is !fns15

Fushigi na Shounen 14, Shinya Shokudou 24-26

At long last, more Fushigi na Shounen! This time the boy connects with a 90 year old anthropology professor who is determined to prove the existence of God and the boy himself.
Trigger: !fns14

Staff: Taylor, Zeroaintdead, Azuma and yours truly

More fun with the folks at the late night diner. This time we have a tale of luck (or lack thereof) and adultery(?!), a crazy con artist and a heart-warming story of a woman and her memories of her father.
Triggers: !shin24, !shin25, !shin26

Staff: Psi, Zeroaintdead, Eito, Beth, Azuma, Staekk, Heleleo, lucy97

Cleaners/redrawers/typesetters needed!

Fushigi na Shounen Chapter 13 Part 1 & 2

This has to be the longest chapter I’ve ever seen… a total of 180 pages, sure it was 2 parts but whatever. And man, was it a lot of work, I want to thank all the staff that worked on it. It’s not a popular series, so we are looking for staff for most positions (Cleaner, Proofer, and Typesetter.)

Part 1 Staff: Taylor, KaiHeartnet, and Marielle. The trigger is !fns13a

Part 2 Staff: Taylor, KaiHeartnet, CaptWolf, Marielle, and Vai. The trigger is !fns13b

We are also still looking for a translator for Maoyuu Maou Yuusha.

Fushigi na Shounen Chapter 12

A bit of a delay because we didn’t have enough proofers to handle all the work. But Bizkit stepped up and not only proofed the chapter but also typeset it. Big thanks to Bizkit for all his work. The trigger for this chapter is !fns12.

Staff: Taylor, Sality, Sueco, Klauz Miene, Bizkit, Psi, and Azuma.

We are still looking for 1 more proofreader, and once we find him or her, we’ll start searching for translators again! If you think you can help please don’t hesitate to apply. If don’t have the time nor the skill, you can still help by donating. Think about it.

Fushigi na Shounen 10 and Sing Yesterday for Me 53

What’s going on with Fushigi na Shounen?! We just don’t know! (Actually, we do. We had the translations in a while ago, but there’s no backlog anymore so shhhh. XD) Ah, this is the last chapter of volume 3! First three volumes, and what long volumes they are, are complete, hurrah!

This is a short chapter by FNS standards. It’s about two women the Boy meets and the question of what one woman does if she is allowed to do as she pleases. The exposition in regards to his insatiable curiosity is offstage this time but we get to see the set up, which is rather interesting. Anyway, this time he does something we’ve never seen before… and it has an amazing impact (I would argue) and end result. So take a look. Trigger: !fns10

Staff: Taylor, blueberry, Fenrill, Nanaseru, ZeroDC

Another chapter of SYFM, too! Haru enters with a heavy-ass box for cafe take out and there’s some adorable glimpses young love. (Jerseys are comfortable! They shouldn’t be discriminated against! Haha.) Trigger: !syfm53

Staff: Jazz, freijie, blueberry, seyrine, Heleleo

Fushigi na Shounen 08!

What is a human? Why do they kill? Why do they love? What is joy? Family? History? Knowledge? The minutae of one human’s life… those important milestones… how do you define ‘important’? The Boy wanders, observes, reveals, guides, interferes, but above all, he’s interested to the degree of wonder. It makes one’s heart pound to be able to relate to another, and that’s another thing to wonder about.

So, we’re releasing the first chapter of volume three today! In this story, his episodic time travels is a bit more… timey wimey, I suppose we could say, haha. We’re in for a chapter that’s a tiny bit longer than the last, but with lots of wonderful colour pages, that similar pressure of calm satisfaction, and the mystery of the Boy and his powers. The focus is on one family and the space between fatalism and determinism.

Staff: Taylor, Fenrill, Nanaseru, blueberry

Fushigi na Shounen 05!

My favourite Viscans series and its irregular releases. You’ll notice we’re going in order now for these first few volumes. Again, a one shot. This time it’s about Socrates. And if you know anything about Socrates, you’ll come away feeling sorry for Plato and Crito. XD There’s a tidbit of fun history in the beginning in regards to men being foolish (Nicias, Lamachus, and the worst one, Alcibiades)! Page 66 is the kicker though. I think it’s worth downloading just to check out that page.

So go and get it on irc with the trigger: !fns5

Staff: Himeyasha & Taylor, Fenrill and Freijie, blueberry, Nanaseru, and ZeroDC.
