No Side chapter 24

Still no luck on the raw front, so releases continue as usual. Anyone still wondering what a kaleidoscope is (what do they teach kids in school these days?!) can check wikipedia.

Chapter 24

Thanks for all the suggestions I've received over the past months and weeks. However I've decided that I won't be picking up any new series once I'm done with Umishi and No Side so I can focus on grad school. Of course finishing those two series is still a long way away judging by my current pace (especially for Umishi), but I thought I'd give everyone a heads up.

Umishi chapter 71

I had to do research on fuel sealing systems and all sorts of other things just to make sense of this chapter. I learn something new every chapter.

Umishi chapter 71

About No Side, I still haven't heard from the person who said he had better raws, so I'm going to proceed with the horrible ones as usual. I can always (get someone to) release HQ versions in the future.

EDIT: I have just been informed that the word is Gland Packing, not Grand Packing. It all looks the same in Japanese.

Umishi chapter 70

Here's your Umishi for July. This chapter contains a small treat for all Tokkyuu fans. Personally I always found the character designs a little too frog-like to be taken seriously so I've never been able to get into it. Shallow, but there you have it.

Umishi chapter 70

I'm all footballed out now (*cough*all my favourite teams are out*cough*) so I'll be working on translations a little more now. I'm already working on No Side volume 4. Speaking of which, I got a message from someone with much better raws, so if talks pan out you'll be able to see higher-quality versions of chapters 22 and 23 and subsequent ones in the near future. I hope so, once I'm actually able to get in touch with the guy.
