Natsunokumo chapter 17

Finally! I don't think this qualifies as "weekend" anymore (perhaps it's still Sunday somewhere out there...) but better late than never.
In this chapter we bear witness to the complete awesomeness of pissed-off Gigia, and open hostilities with the mercenary group- but the always crafty Crank will find a way to settle things in a (somewhat) civil way.

Today's wrestling moves come courtesy of Buffalo Man (from the anime/manga Kinnikuman)

Next chapter, the last one for which there were scripts available left from the translator who started the project way back when, it's coming sometime in August. No clue exactly when, 'cause it's more than 32°C here and my brain is starting to melt.

Chapter 17 delayed

I'm sorry to announce that chapter 17 will be coming next week, at the earliest, and not this weekend. I could blame a problem with my desktop as the cause, but really, there was a Guild Wars 2 beta coming, so not much of a chance of me working on it this weekend to begin with.

Still, I present a small gift- an extra spread from Volume 7- as a little tease.
See you next week!

Natsunokumo chapter 16

Here it is, chapter 16 - Group Encounter #2. The bodyguards and the adults of the Zoo meet to plan their countermeasures against the onslaught of curious players that have flooded the board, but trouble's afoot in their own home. Also, GIGIA SMASH!

(This time the download link for the chapter is provided by thanks to mediafire being a bunch of twats.)

In other news, I may have successfully convinced a translator to help out with the scripts, so there's still hope of seeing the whole manga through. Still, 4 volumes are a lot for a single person, so if there's anyone else available to help, you're more than welcome.

See ya!

Natsunokumo chapter 15

Chapter 15 - Group Encounter #1 is done!

In this chapter, we see the aftermath of the clash with Kabaki, and how Gaur's holding up after the loss of her beloved Grandma. Also, a little more insight into what has happened in the past at the Zoo, and as per usual a look at how people online can be gigantic assholes.

Still no translator in sight, so again, we only have 3 chapters left to go. I'm sounding more and more like a broken record, but I'd really like to see this translated to the end- and avoid commissioning a translator if at all possible. If anyone is willing to step up and take care of the script leave a comment here on the blog, or send an email to

If a group wants to pick it up the project and release it as their own, feel free to do so.
Chapter 16 will come later in the month, depending if I manage to leave town for a while or not.
See you soon!

Natsunokumo chapter 4.5 - Side Story

Hello again! Today comes the extra chapter from the first volume, a look at how Itaka first came to be a part of the Zoo, with a guest appearance of Sancho and Katsutoshi (the guys with the funny accents from Volume 2).

According to mangaupdates, this chapter war already released by mangascreener way back when, but I couldn't find it online. The script was available, so I re-did it. Way to be efficient!

Next up is chapter 15, first chapter of Volume 4. Still missing a translator for chapters 19 and up, so without some fresh blood, chapter 18 is as far as we gonna get.

For those who are interested, here are repacks for the first three volumes in English. Enjoy!
