Usagi Drop 56 [END]

has passed first TL, but I'm not comfortable at all with releasing this one yet, so I'm going to look at things for a while before sending it off to WOW!Scans. I think part of it has to do with the chapter  itself being a bit jumbled, but who am I to criticize?

Update: sent to WOW!Scans after a fair amount of revision


Usagi Drop 55

Was translated this morning, but I want to look at some things in light of some confusion concerning the translations for 52.

TL thread is here: http://archive.easymodo.net/a/thread/51969963

Does anyone know if there's a magazine version of 54 that can be compared to the bound chapter? I don't even know what to make of this series anymore, I've read the chapter 3 times over and it's just mind-boggling in quite a few ways...



for posting a link to WCW bound volume 1 raw, like an idiot. I was going to do 53 today, but I will take this opportunity to get some real work done. Should be lifted in a day.

Sorry for the delays in TL-ing

Usagi Drop 51 Released

Expected ETA on 52 is tomorrow according to the group. Enjoy

This was a fairly smooth process as far as releases go, and I'm glad it turned out fine with no problems. Credit goes to the TS-er (currently anonymous); I know that many people wouldn't be able to enjoy these series otherwise.

I included the older chapters I did for preservation's sake, since WCW 07 was how I started doing this whole thing in earnest. I guess I did TL 1 or 2 Hoozuki chapters before that, but that thread ended up with me starting Usagi Drop as well. It's always nice to track progress now that I have the necessary framework to do so. Enjoy, and support Animexis when they release the real HQ stuff.

sent off to WOW!Scans at time of writing this post.

Marginally trickier than 51, had to add a few extra words here and there to make it cohesive. Hope you guys don't mind; I look forward to your enjoyment of the end product.


51.2 sent to WOW!Scans

Fixed some general errors, re-TL'ed some parts. Will start 52 later tonight.

Usagi Drop 51

51 is done, but needs to be annotated, "cleaned", and packaged for for TS.

The thread is still live, at 

52 might go down, depending on everything else.

Unlikely, but if you found your way here

by way of /a/ collective scanlation, some information to quell at least a bit of the unrest:

1. Tomacata and I are two different people. Some of the confusion that led up to this was most likely my unwillingness to adopt a tripcode until things were getting out of hand. I TL'ed Usagi Drop 36-50 (whichever was the last one out) with him, but for reasons that should be obvious on his site by now he chose to stop working on the series. As some people have said, I'm not the greatest fan of the series, but that isn't a factor in the work going on.

2. I am planning/ have planned to do the rest of Usagi Drop (at least the main storyline, if someone provides the other stuff I don't mind either), but raws are being provided by WOW!Scans rather than out there on the various channels of online distribution. Monthly scans have not been available, probably due to lack of interest? I will update this blog and the twitter for what it's worth, if you'd like to drop in while I'm translating.

3. WOW!Scans has graciously offered to post-TL the rest of the series, and I think this is most beneficial for the audience out there. If someone else wants to release faster scans, s/he should take it up with them personally. I personally don't have a problem with different releases trading off speed and quality, but I also don't read them so take that as you may. They will most likely post scans on their site, so I don't see any need to divert traffic from them.
Update: After talking to WOW!Scans, they have said they plan to do a timely release of the remaining chapters, and kindly request that other individuals/groups not try to release their own SLs.

I've probably said too much already, but I've been seeing a lot of these questions over and over. Hopefully this deals with the most important ones. Feel free to ask me if you have any others.

The thread (alive as of this posting) http://boards.4chan.org/a/res/51648049
I will try to grab the archive when I see it tomorrow, or if a kind soul would comment back with the link, I'd appreciate it. If interest is there, I can package it but that thread is pretty clean from what I see.

Since this is the first official TL I'm trying to post, I suppose some disclaimer is in order. Anyone who sees this, feel free to use my scripts as you see fit. It'd be nice to receive credit, but I don't care too much. Use some common sense is all I can ask.


Update: archive is @ http://archive.easymodo.net/a/thread/51648049 , and the usual editor has taken up this chapter.
