Chapter 28 update

So I kind of forgot I was supposed to be doing status updates.  That's what I get for spending too much time fapping at work.  This chapter has been delayed partly cause we're lazy motherfuckers (particularly me), and partly because of a misunderstanding based on a lack of communication which was completely my fault.  So my humble apologies for that.  At any rate, I will try to have it up within 72 hours, but my work schedule is kind of crazy today / tomorrow, so it might take slightly longer. 

Chapter 29 also won't be coming until sometime in January because we're all pretty busy in December.  However, I think from now on Xero and I will be cleaning raws for chapters ahead of time, so that should in theory speed up the release time slightly.  Not sure why we haven't been doing that the whole time.  Okay, in all fairness I think Xero has already been doing that a bit.  I guess I just haven't.  That will change.

As always, comments help to motivate me to finish faster, so gimmee some!  They're like... cookies.  Or something.


So from now on on non-release posts I will be typing whatever I feel like typing down here at the bottom.  Why?  Because I can.

Therefore, I give you an awesome (relatively) new song from BMTH.  Yes, I'm a metalfag, deal with it.  Comments disparaging metalcore, metal in general, or BMTH will not be looked upon kindly and will automatically delay the release of chapter 28 by 24 hours.  <3

I also would like you to know that I can now say I have been chased down the street by a drunk gay guy in the middle of the night.  Said drunk gay guy may or may not have also fallen over and broken our standup heater in half and put his hand through a pane of glass last night.  Good times.  That is all.



  1. I'm really looking forward to the next chapter.
    I hope you continue translating this so I can read it to the end after 5 years. Slow progress is also progress.

  2. Yes :D please keep up the good work! This is a really nice thing your doin, translating a very good manga. Just wanted to say thanks for putting your time(s) into this, personally it means alot to me in a weird way :l hard to explain kinda feeling. Is this worthy fap material? Only time shall tell :l

  3. We can wait. Do not stop please!!

  4. Just take your time...
    I've been waiting for 5 years (or more) for Rena... As long as it's not totally stalled, I'll be waiting for it, no matter how long it takes.
    I just love Otogi no Machi no Rena, it's the best manga from Hattori Mitsuru, why is it so underrated ?!
    I was in japan 2 month ago and couldn't find it anywhere, not even 1 book... At best, I'd found Sankarea (That I already have) and Umisho (which is being released officialy in my country, France)
    So if anybody have the raws or a link to some online shop, I'll be glad to have it ^^
