First comes marriage, then comes an earthbound love that is out of this world! From the day his parents named him, Nasa Yuzaki has been destined for outer space…or so he believes. But while trying to join the space program, he is thrown for a loop when an accident introduces him to Tsukasa, a mysterious girl with strange powers. Is she an alien, a moon goddess or something else? Since she insists on marrying him, Nasa has plenty of chances to find out!
Finally some of the stuff that I’ve lettered a few months ago has been released. Luckily, the first title provided layered files for chapter 1, which I’m eternally grateful for! The other ones were mostly subtitled SFX which I’m also grateful for… hopefully the rest of the titles that I’ve worked on gets released soon.
I’m actually going to be taking a break from lettering for a short while but I’ll be back!
A cute series where someone is reincarnated as a wall in an apartment where they can observe yuri relationships up close! It’s actually super hilarious and yes, I originally was hooked with the kabedon cover.
“As an outsider, I want to silently protect and watch over the love between women…,” said a Yuri fanatic that got hit by a car and reincarnated as a wall in a certain apartment! And for some reason, the residents of the apartment room are always two girls in yuri relationship… Let’s support these cute and heartwarming couples together with the passionate wall in “Yuri Wall”!
Hello everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted. I am pretty busy with freelance work and summer classes start next week for me. If everything goes well, I should graduate in December 2018! *sobs* I’ve been in college on & off for a longass time and switched my degree and university AND kinda failed math classes on the way… I have weak motivation which delayed my graduation for a while…
I’ve also done freelance work for Manga.club which is the English branch of TORICO. There haven’t been many A-list series on it yet, but they’re planning on adding more BL/yaoi titles and they’re currently serializing a great biography manga about Jose Rizal, a Filipino hero!
I Don’t Even Have Time to Live by Nakano
Another project that I worked on: I Don’t Even Have Time to Live (生きてる暇もない。) by Nakano [Mangaupdates] [original]. It’s an essay manga about daily depression and struggling to stay alive in this bleak world.
Well, that’s because I spend most of my time leaning against the wall, thinking of wasteful thoughts. But I’m barely still alive, despite everything. “I Don’t Even Have Time to Live” is an essay comic about the life of Nakano, who struggles every day just to simply… alive. The comic tackles depression theme in an uncomplicated and relatable manner, making us realize that such experience is actually not so distanced with our everyday’s life.
With over 10,248 items listed, 5.9 million sold for a total of $85.6M, manga seems to be selling well! However, compared to 2008 when 7842 items listed, 10.2 million sold for a total of $100.8M during the manga boom, it pales in comparison. Remember that Borders closed in 2011, which led to many US manga companies to shut down.
Let’s see the top 6 manga publishers of 2017 and analyze the numbers after the break!
How is the US manga industry doing? Well, it’s currently the end of summer when I’m writing this and Anime Expo already happened. I’ll be talking about manga guests at conventions in the past year, the current big players in US manga publishing,, state of digital manga, and speculations on the future of the industry.
