As promised, FIJC is in the works, and since I like to be slow on many things at the same time, we may be undertaking something else here, if I can convince someone to clean it for me. (Looks around innocently.)

Rock Over Japan (Oedo!! Un❤️pluged! Ch. 9) + Volume 1 Omnibus & I’m 10, And What Is This?

by slyborg

Rock On Suimasen

In case anyone is wondering, we’re still undead.

So, this winds up Volume 1 of the OU manga! I know this is sudden, but I’ve also put together an actual tank release, with, like, page numbers and stuff. Hopefully this will be more convenient for first-time readers of this work.

In other news, my memory is hazy on this, partly because I wasn’t around at the time, but I believe that this week marks the 10th anniversary of Suimasen Scans. You could argue that we pretty much were done as an active group in 2012, but here I am, still releasing translations of Tibetan wall scrolls from the exotic Orient. I couldn’t do what little we do without the help of the guys from [Kicchiri], thanks to them as always – and thanks to our former members and of course the authors of these works. I hope our dear readers (all 3 of you) enjoy our translations, and I fervently hope somebody else is in charge of doing release posts for our 20th anniversary 🙂

While you are raising a pint for St. Patrick tomorrow, have another for Suimasen … sláinte!

Pizza Witches Part Two

by slyborg

Always better to fly over the mean streets of scanlation.

So, I’ve been a little busy… with stuff.

Rest of the pizza finally out of the freezer here, hope you enjoy it. Sora is olev, but this dork was best grill. Doesn’t look like Meguro-sensei is planning on doing anything else with this, which is a shame since the concept is kind of cute.

In other news, since Twitter is more or less a teeming cesspool of adverts now, I’ve been dabbling in the Fediverse via Mastodon, and we’ll be posting our updates there as well. Currently stationed at, which isn’t actually all that moe and contains more or less the same cast of narcissists and angsty teens that dominate all social media – but there aren’t any adverts. It’s kind of 2007-era Twitter, with a dumber name, but we’ll see if it goes anywhere. Eh.

Pizza Witches Part One

by slyborg

What do you mean, no tip?

Ran across this 2-part one-shot last year in Comic Namaiki, it’s by Sankichi Meguro, the mangaka of Domina no Do, among other things. Pizza is a subject near and dear to my heart and stomach; witches are fine, too (if they are cute girls).

Also like to (re)welcome our translator lemon to the Suimasen fold – he originally volunteered to help with SZS back in the Olden Days when we did things, and is back to work on a sekret project that we will hopefully undertake here shortly. In the meantime,  enjoy some pizza (witches).

The Kids Are Alright (Oedo!! Un❤️pluged! Ch. 8)

by slyborg

More Oedo Unplugged?

Additional OU for your perusal. All none of you reading this, lol.

Tama’s hairstyle is a miracle of the biyouin art and defies all known laws of physiology. Apparently Japanese of the Edo period had an unbelievable follicle density, which is odd since the chonmage was the default hairstyle for men. Maybe they all had male pattern baldness.

[Thanks to tabv for tardy proofing <_< Any remaining issues were not his fault. There are a lot of other things that are his fault, though.]
