Five Year Plans (FK 3rei Extra 2)

by slyborg

Suimasen Scans is 5 years old this weekend! The first release of record by the group under this name was March 15th, 2009, although I think the original team actually did some work as anons on 4chan’s /a/ board prior to this. Of the original group, only GreenTea still remains as an active member, perhaps he can add a few words when he sees this. We haven’t been the most prolific group, and we certainly have never been the most popular, but I like to think that we have taken on some of the more difficult projects out there in our time and have done our very best by them.

As it happens, it’s also four years ago this month that I joined the group, and my very first project for Suimasen happened to be Fate Kaleid, having been assigned the project by meki randomly once he realized I wasn’t hika and/or a girl. Therefore, I will proffer up the following in honor of the anniversary:

Couple of notes on this, since we’re like that.

- Page 1: The title in Japanese, Otome yo toushi o itadake is a play on the famous parting words of William S. Clark that seem to have launched Japan into the 20th century, Shounen yo taishi o itadake, “Boys, be ambitious!”
- Page 3, P1B2: Nanaki says neburi koroshi ni suru, what she meant was taburi koroshi ni suru – to torture someone to death.
- Page 6, P1B3: The last character used to write Moriyama Nanaki’s first name is also the kanji for ‘turtle’.

So, who can say what the next five years will bring, but I hope the very best for our current, former, and future staff, and all of the fans of manga out there that have read our sorry works here. Have a piece of cake!

The cake is still a lie.

The cake is still a lie.

Massive Sloth (Azazel-san 13)

by slyborg
Typesetters, I choose YOU!

straykumo trying to get her chapter released…

Sakuma-san can summon me any time… her latest demon fetch turns out to be even less useful, however…

Kind of a big TL Note from straykumo re: page 76 I’m going to render here instead:

Shima Kousaku is in a magazine called “Morning” and NEET Shima Kousaku is in a magazine called “Evening”. The author who lost enthusiasm is the author of the Shima Kousaku series; Hirokane Kenshi. Not the author of this manga; the Kubo Yasuhisa that Sasaoka wanted to kill.

If I might take the liberty of expanding on this a bit, I hope that the “Kousaku Shima” series is already known to most manga fans, it is of course the famous long-running (as in since 1983!) salaryman saga by Hirokane Kenshi that has chronicled in basically real time the career of a hard-working young university graduate who joins a major Japanese conglomerate, and who over the years rises to the very top of the company. Lots of inside baseball here, in that both Azazel-san and Kousaku Shima are in fact published by Kodansha; the original Kachou Kousaku Shima ran in the Kodansha manga magazine “Morning”, the latest spin-offs have actually run in Kodansha’s “Evening” magazine, as does Azazel. The only thing I don’t know is whether Sasaoka Tomoya was/is Kubo-sensei’s actual editor at Kodansha.

In other news, Suimasen’s birthday is rapidly approaching, and I have nothing, nothing! (wrings hands piteously). Maybe some Fate Kaleid, maybe some more Yumeko, we shall see.
