Sekrit Project REVEALED!

I first read this manga many years ago via a badly scanned incomplete and untranslated download from IRC and I was somehow taken by it. I decided if I could ever get hold of a copy of the original book I'd scan it in and even make an attempt to translate it if I learned enough Japanese, but how likely was that to happen? And then it happened. So this is going to be my next project (drum roll please!)-

菜々ちゃんは俺のもの(Me and my Nana-chan) by 上村純子 (Kamimura Sumiko)

_Nana-chan_ is a classic bodyswap tale but with a couple of twists as rivals for the beautiful Nana-chan's affections fight for her using magic and dirty tricks in equal measures. It's ecchi rather than hentai and not even much of that -- I'm not that fond of much of the hentai TS/TG stuff out there I must admit. It will take me a while to get through the single volume but as a taster, have a picture.

I'm going to continue with Twinkle Twinkle Idol Star; indeed I've just completed scanning the next two chapters but I'll release parts of Nana-chan as I complete them or when I feel like it. As an aside the chapters are forty to fifty pages long, about twice the size of a Twinkle chapter or pretty much any magazine-published manga these days.

The Word of the Day is KARADA.

Twinkle Twinkle Idol Star - volume 1 stage 4

Finally got this chapter finished and out the door. Chapter 4 is a bit of a twist, with Ayumi-chan staying out of skirts and forgoing makeup while Marimo-"kun" dresses up butch for a day out avoiding the paparazzi. Have a picture.

Those eyebrows...

Next up is a two-chapter episode which will take me some time to roll out as I'd like to do as one release rather than leaving a cliff-hanger in the middle. I'm also planning to move ahead with some other scanlation projects, hopefully interleaved with Twinkle but as has happened in the recent past Real Life and Paid Work will get in the way so I'm not going to make any promises on delivery dates. More later.

Still Still Alive Alive

Work and Life got in the way recently and I've only just got back to working on Twinkle. I hope to finish chapter 4 in the next few days but no promises. Have a picture.
