I won’t be working on scans for a while because I seriously need to work on my thesis which is lagging behind terribly right now.
Yes, another KanColle erodoujin.
Earlier when I and a few other friends were in Comiket 85, we saw AYUEST’s line extend outside from one end of the hall to the other and back. Of course, I didn’t bother with a futile attempt at lining up. Instead I made a note of that to look up later and damn, Ayuya’s art is really, really good. Unfortunately, there’s nothing but Chinese scans of the C85 work so I’ve instead done Ayuya’s work from Sunshine Creation 61. Lovely stuff.
Being able to pull karory in – repeatedly, in fact – is quite the feat as well. But perhaps they’re just good friends.

Also I’ve been liking Fufufuu’s design and lack of annoying 3dpd porn ads so I’ve been uploading there as well. I may end up switching over entirely some time or another, depending on how annoyed I get at Fakku comments.
Some KanColle not-porn. I may or may not do the rest of this manga, but the other chapters are really good too; if you care about KanColle and can get your hands on a copy, definitely give it a try. Japanese, of course, is a must-know.
On a side-note, I hope translators working on KanColle stuff do some more research before releasing things. Not naming names of course – it just feels like everyone is jumping on the KanColle bandwagon when they haven’t the slightest clue about it apart from the girls being cute. As a T, It bugs the hell out of me when they get the names or facts wrong when they are just a Google search away.
Also plugging another Horizon release, edited by Nackbjorn:
Finally, this is kind of late, but I will be holding a donation drive of sorts for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda):
For every 10 Dollars donated, we will be translating a random KanColle doujin within 1 week!
And for anyone who donates at least 15 Dollars, you can specify any doujin you want translated. This won’t count towards the total for regular donations. Doujin does not have to be 18+. Contact will be via your PayPal e-mail.
Proceeds will go directly to the Philippine Red Cross. You can donate via PayPal by clicking here, or on the donate button on the right sidebar.
Never in my life have I put this much effort into translating porn. In total, I’ve probably spent 20 hours, including all the research done and consulting others for understanding the history behind the ship, the references related to the game and otherwise, and so on. But this doujin totally deserved it. Even the handwritten bit for the omake manga. I don’t actually write that ugly, by the way.
Unlike other releases, this will NOT be put on Fakku! immediately, as a special service to this group’s followers. And a bit of KanColle elitism bleeding in – Yamato was, and still is, an event-exclusive, like this release will be to the blog (not that I have her though ;__; ). Not that that’s stopping anyone from downloading this and upping it someplace, but you’d be a jerk if you did that without permission, okay?
Also included in the release are two alternate typeset versions of the omake manga – one in the standard font for anyone who can’t read the intentionally bad scribble, and another in true World War II typeset style, as requested by a certain paediatric gynaecologist M.D..
