COVER ILLUSTRATION: SHINREI TANTEI YAKUMO (ODA SUZUKA)
Photobucket

I know that I’d skipped doing the June snippets but that was intentional due to my busy schedule. Some peeps have been constantly checking to see if I would post teasers from the July issue after the previous miss. Well, fret not cos the Asuka snippets are back. The teasers aren’t quite teasers any more but nonetheless, I’m sure not everyone has gotten wind of the latest chapters. Therefore, these will definitely cheer y’all up.

What you’ll get to see:

• Shinrei Tantei Yakumo
• Barajou no Kiss
• Gatsu ni tsubame to migi ni kage **new
• Ouji wa Tadaima Dekasegi Chuu
• Akaki Tsuki no Mawaru Koro **final
• Kyou kara Ma no Tsuku Jiyuugyou!
• Genji Monogatari
• The Conductor **final
• Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru

-SNIPPETS-

::SHINREI TANTEI YAKUMO::
– File 3, Chapter 10: Smexy shirtless Yakumo uncovers the truth and deception behind the mysterious death of a young woman after cooling himself from the summer heat by the taps. Haruka wasn’t even in the picture. If she was, she would have swoon and faint at the droolworthy sight of dripping wet Yakumo. (*¬*) (^o^)

::ZONE-00::
– Chapter 33 colour pages. Zone’s back again after being off for a time. That’s because it has been alternating with ‘Trinity Blood’ which Kyujyo Kujo is also working on. Tbh, I prefer ‘Trinity Blood’ to Zone which I have not been following from the beginning. The manga is also getting its first CD dramatization.

::BARAJOU NO KISS::
– Chapter 34 (solely for Barajou fans): Bishoujo Seiran-KUN stole more than just the spotlight in this chapter and did them all with finesse and style. As for the heroine…ya, she’s still lame.

::GATSU TSUBAME TO MIGI NI KAGE::
– New manga from Katagiri Yoshisugu who previously did a one shot called ‘Tera Cafe Biyori’ for Asuka not too long ago.  This one is about an onigiri loving protagonist student who also moonlights as a young samurai wielding enforcer in a vigilante sort of organization that’s trying to stop the criminal activities of a secret society type gang. Unbeknown to him, one of his school mates is a spy for the baddies.

::OUJI WA TADAIMA DEKASEGI CHUU::
– CHAPTER 3: The misadventure of a young pauper prince who has been duped of his kingdom’s coffers and is afraid of dark spooky places, continues.

Yuto needs to man up & not act like a yaoi bait and this face begs to an ‘uke’, don’t you think so?! m(_ _)m

::AKAKI TSUKI NO MAWARU KORO::
– Final chapter. This was a rather short adaptation of the novel of the same name. Does it have a good kabuki ending for the heroine? Ya, pretty much so and only after being threatened with death. The chapter’s cover gave out such a strong hint too😛

::KYOU KARA MA NO TSUKI JIYUUGYOU!::
– Yuri is in a bind cos the misguided Lady Flynn is about to trade him off to Cimaron. But Yozak is nearby so it’ll all work out in the end. The funniest bit is when Gunter’s soul ends up in a doll (he was shot by a poison dart) and Anissina trying to find a way to return his soul to his body by subjecting his body with all sorts of ridiculous test…xDDD Of course, all she needs is the Wincott brat😆

::GENJI MONOGATARI::
– Chapter 6 with colour pages. Young Genji learned the hard way that ‘hell hath no fury like a woman scorned’ and in this case, it’s Lady Rokujo’s vengeful jealousy at Genji’s other lovers.

::THE CONDUCTOR::
– Kaminaga Manabu brought the curtain down in spectacular fashion, in the final chapter. Conductor is a well written dramatic story and with a thrilling orchestrated plot. Definitely the best psychological murder mystery manga with a touch of supernatural I’ve seen in a long while. I’m not going to give away more than what is revealed here. Let’s save it for the scanlating team!

::URAGIRI WA BOKU NO NAMAE WO SHITTEIRU::
– Another lulz inducing chapter especially the first 3 parts. The last half is pure *shounen-ai* fan service at the hot spring. I can hear lots of gasping from Yuki x Luka shippers.

The mad hatter Tachibana reveals his reasons behind his obsession with er…hats! Simple really, he’s grown a bald patch in the middle like Prince Wills. Don’t you think that explains his crazy hats collection (*O*) *LMAO* …I kid of course!

How to get fangirls…Yo, Seiri’s the man as Shusei and Hotsu learn how to attract fan-girls like Seiri…not!  Muahahaha…

The hoodlums… ah they never learn the first time not to mess with the zweilts.

Yo! Tachibana saves the day with a super ‘kapow’ upper right cut to the idiotic hoodlum much to the surprise and bemusement of the rest (^o^)

  1. Hi Ayumi, your raws are really good! Can I ask you a favour? I’m retraslating in italian Conductor using Zero Alliance translation (I asked their permission and they said yes) so I was wondering if you could give me the raws from chapter 2 onwards, as the girl who helps me with the project would prefer to use the raws. Of course I will give the credits by entering your name and the address of your blog on my blog and on the credits page of the project, as is only right. Thank you in advance and hope you can help me. Contact me at my email address: yuriyuuka@gmail.com.

    Thank you!

  3. Thank for these scan I’m happy that I get to see some raws of The Conductor, can you tell me only one thing? I just ONLY want to know is The Conductor’s gending bad? nothing more.

    • @Marim,
      Ur welcome. *Is happy* to know u r a fan of ‘The Conductor’.
      As regards the ending, bad in what sense? If you implied ‘bad’ as in ‘sucks’, then no it isn’t. It’s far too sophisticated to deserve such a label. Kaminaga Manabu is masterful in his story telling and this is his best new work to date. That alone is the clue, k. 🙂 So, don’t worry. You’ll get a thrilling ride, right up to the last page of the final chapter.

  4. OMG Yakumo and Haruka are… BEAUTIFUL in the cover!! ♥ They’re really a adorable couple! ♥

    Barajou no Kiss chapter seems to be interesting, but Anis doesn’t seem to have an idea about the real one she likes… Am I wrong?

    Like

    • Yeah, they (Yakumo & Haruka) do look cute together.🙂
      As for BaraKiss, I thought the coupling of the heroine and Kaede is a foregone conclusion. Everything else is just fan service for the various shipping factions. Kinda silly, if you ask me. 😛

  5. Hello, I’m new here ^_^ I just found The Brownie Post II and since I’m a Uraboku fan I couldn’t help but leave a reply =D
    I’m really grateful to you for posting these awesome scans AND for leaving comments about them (I believe that not all of your followers understand Japanese, just like me btw).
    Once again thank you very much for sharing with us ^_^
    See you again (I’ll be joining your stalkers <3).

  6. Oh that was awesome! I mean Yakumo. *drools* He’s too sexy for his shirt, right?❤ Too bad that the Conductor is over and we still need to wait a lot until the whole series is scanlated. But I guess It's worth it.^^ Ouji wa Tadaima looks nice, I like this prince uke. *pervy grin* UraBoku is pretty funny but I was surprised at what Tachibana said (don't wanna spoil the fun for others). Already saw some teaser pics about the great bath-scene with Yuki and Luka but I think later I will check out your LJ post, too. Thanks a lot for the scans, I'm always looking forward to them!^^

  7. HOOOLY SH–!!!!!!
    That was my reaction at Yakumo’s pictures. I was thinking that there are very few colored pictures but when we get one, it’s something GOOD.😄
    Yakumo’s just too sexy and he’s being SO exploited for this😄

    I can’t thank you enough for sharing this smexy sight. =3=

  8. Gaahhhh! That snippet of Shinrei Tantei Yakumo is doing nothing for this summer heat we’ve been having here. HUBBA HUBBA.
    Thanks again for scanning! Can’t wait to see the next chapter!

    • @LittleStar,
      xD, yeah I have disdain for the heroine of BaraKiss. Nope I don’t mind sharing snippets from the manga at all. Happy to do it cos I know there are fans of Shouto Aya’s manga out there. ^_^
