You may have noticed, as well, that a little while back we updated the first chapter on MangaDex with a second version, fixing a few cleaning errors and improving the color redraws. You can find that version below.
Aw yeah! Babies an’ Elephants! I’m talkin’ babies an’ Elephants!
Episode 13 – “The Circus Has Arrived”
The circus has come to town for 3 days only, and the main performance on display will be an elephant named Jasmine crossing a thin suspended bridge alongside her trainer, a young girl named Yurika. However, when Jasmine gets stage fright, the ringmaster threatens to sell Jasmine to a zoo. Yurika escapes with Jasmine and they end up hiding out with Natumi, Izumi and Mirai-chan. What will happen next? Watch and find out!
Uh… Aunt Izumi DOES know how to drive… doesn’t she?
Episode 14 – “The Compact Case’s Secret”
Natsumi is awoken at 3am by a call from her future self. However, because of this, she oversleeps the next morning, causing her to miss a field trip she had planned. Then she discovers that Ryuichi-kun is in danger, as her future self tells her he’s going to be crushed by falling rocks unless she’s there to save him. Will Natsumi get there in time? Watch and find out!
What’s this?! A wedding scene between Natsumi and Fukazawa-kun?!
Episode 15 – “What is My Dream?”
The school gives Natsumi’s class an assignment to write about what their dream for the future is… essentially to write about where they see themselves 15 years. Everybody’s got a clear idea, but Natsumi is having trouble coming up with something, but one thing is for sure, she doesn’t want to be an ordinary housewife. That’s when Aunt Izumi comes up with an idea to help her discover what she wants. What’s Aunt Izumi’s idea? Will Natsumi figure out what to write about in her essay? Watch and find out!
Hello, everyone! It’s been… about a year and a half now, and I feel really bad about leaving you all in the dust with this series.
So, when I was working on some manga with someone and they said they were a fan of the series and asked me why I stopped releasing, it inspired me to continue working on it.
If you’ve got a keen eye, you may notice that the timing on some lines isn’t that great (going past the keyframe and into the next shot). However, since this doesn’t actually detract from the quality of the episodes, I decided to focus on quality-checking the script more than fine timing in order to eliminate one of the steps, and speed things up a bit.
Oh, you’ll also notice I kept the honorifics in these three episodes. After giving it some consideration, it just seems to work better for this series, especially considering some of the characters don’t use honorifics, or they don’t use them when talking to a specific person, so I feel like it adds a little something. Anyway, whenever I get to the full series batch, I’ll go back and add honorifics to the first 9 episodes as well. For now, I’ll keep pressing forward.
I know last time I said I’d release an episode per-week, and that clearly didn’t come to pass… so I won’t promise anything like that here. I will say that I’m definitely going to continue with the series, though, so look forward to more episodes! From this point onward I’ll be releasing the episodes three-at-a-time, starting here with episodes 10, 11, and 12. This will help with my workflow and generally make the whole thing easier for me to work on. As for episode synopses, you can find them below.
Episode 10 – “Mirai-chan’s in Danger!”
Natsumi has a nightmare about Mirai-chan having a horrific accident on the stairs. She’s worried enough about it that she turns down an invitation to Fukazawa-kun’s birthday party so she can watch Mirai-chan. Will Natsumi be able to protect Mirai-chan from danger? Will Fukazawa-kun be disappointed that she couldn’t come to his birthday party? Will Ryuichi get jealous? Watch and find out!
That’s a lot of carrots!
Episode 11 – “Getting Acquainted Through Cooking!”
Natsumi’s class is splitting up into groups in order to cook food for everyone’s mothers. When she gets paired up with Fukazawa-kun, she gets excited at the prospect of showing his mother how great of a cook she can be, and how great of a wife she would make for him. She uses this excitement to motivate herself to make a fantastic beef stew. Will she make a great stew? Will it impress his mother? Will Aunt Izumi get to eat a bunch of food? Watch and find out!
Who or what is this creepy figure?!
Episode 12 – “Time Machine, Engage!”
When a rumor starts going around about a monster appearing in the mansion on Demon Mountain, Ryuichi dismisses it as nonsense. Natsumi says he’s just scared and challenges him to see who can stay at the mansion longest. They both decide to go exploring there, along with some others from their class, but little do they know there’s a mystery lurking inside.
Got another chapter of Black Jack Blue Future here for you, as usual brought to you by us here at Golden Roze as well as ACF Team. This marks five out of the ten chapters as complete. Download it below, or click “Read Online” to read it on MangaDex.
Hey there, everyone! Gosh, I can’t believe it’s been a little over 4 months since the last chapter of Sunset Rose. Well, here’s another one. As usual, they’re pretty lengthy, being around 50-60 pages long. Hopefully that makes up a little bit for the long delay between chapters.
The image in this post is a nice little adventuring panel, and the runner-up for the image I wanted to use for the credits page. I really like the adventure aspect in this series, honestly.
Anyway, you can find the new chapter below.
Aside from that, I feel like things have been slowing down at the group this past month. A few of our projects are at a standstill. Blue Giant has sadly been put on hold as we no longer have a translator for it. Some good news is that Atom: The Beginning is still steadily trucking along. Also, our editor on Pulverize ‘Em Zack has been super helpful, going at a fairly rapid pace. I’d expect more of that soon.
We’ve also started working on another anthology volume. I won’t tell you which one, as I’d hate to ruin the surprise, but I’ll give you a hint. It’s a collection of oneshots by an author who’s work we’ve released previously. Anyway, if you’d like to sign up to help out with any of these projects, either contact at our e-mail address, [email protected], or get in touch with us on our Discord channel.
Hey everyone, hope you like the look of the new site. Well, what better way to kick off a new site than with a new series?
Also, what better way to kick off a new series than with not ONE but TWO chapters of said series! 😀
The series in question is called “Hajikete! Zakku”, which translates to “Pulverize ‘Em Zack!”, The full title in Japanese also has a subtitle, “Meikyuu Shinwa”, which means “Labyrinthine Legend”, but we decided to leave it off since it’s not technically part of the main title, and it’s not as catchy sounding with it.
MangaUpdates describes “Pulverize ‘Em Zack!” as follows:
“Follow the adventures of Zack, a crazy boy with even crazier strength who loves to fight! What starts out as an innocent boxing match soon leads Zack into the world of invincible demon-possessed teenagers, acid-spewing mutants, and craven, bloodthirsty cultists! If you’re looking for a manga that just bleeds insanity, then you’ve found it!”
Anyway, Hope you enjoy these two chapters, we’ll have more for you soon.
If you’re wondering where all of the old release posts have gone, well… the old site wasn’t backed-up at all when it went down, so those posts are now gone forever. However, if you’re looking to download our old releases, we’ve posted a link to our complete zip archive in the header, just click that “Download” link, and you’ll find all of our release zips in our MediaFire folder. We’ve even organized them all for you by series (oneshots can be found in another folder at the bottom).
Anyway, hope you guys enjoy the new site and our releases going forward!
