Joking aside I’m actually pretty upset with how the things turned out. Wonder what Taiyaki purpose is with this. If it’s to make more money I’m not sure it’s going to be achieved: people willing to pay were already paying by different means (I for once was and am still subscribed to her paid plan and bought most of 1 x ½ volumes through Amazon). And the ones who didn’t pay will continue to do so and just stop reading her manga. So if her purpose was to make her manga more available for english-able readers it’s definitely not going to be fulfilled since significantly less people going to read it now. Which is pretty sad.

Madokami knows half the reason I continued participating in english release of 1 x 1/2 was because reading peoples reactions and discussions was fun for me and now all that is going to be gone. Yeah, I’m pretty sad indeed... Well at least for that I still have my russian translation which is not going to be “licensed” anytime soon…

I guess I expected her - being self-publishing artist and all - to be much more chill with official English translation eventually uploaded and shared, maybe adopting a webcomic artists strategy with main contest officially shared freely and paying providing access to extra materials and early access to chapters.

Also I feel like a lot of people misunderstanding the situation: Yuru Oyako manga was not “licensed” in the sense of getting publisher and whatnot - it’s still self-publishing. It’s just Goggled Anon is under contract now and it was Taiyaki’s personal decision for paid-only distribution of his translation.

Somebody needs to show this to Taiyaki. And explain it if she doesn't get it.

I think it's wonderful that she's receiving criticism at a professional level and that's the way to improve as a professional, but I feel that Taiyaki's work has a unique charm that may come from her being more of an outsider. I totally disagree that it doesn't express its themes effectively, and I'm concerned that focusing on Asuka/Ayako more may actually exacerbate some of the current issues. I hope this is a long term goal for after the series is finished, once she learns to manage an editing team effectively as she mentioned in the last update.

I agree with nearly all of the above, especially the point that, although the story and art could use some editing and tightening in spots, Taiyaki’s overall style, both in drawing and plotting, is quite compelling as it is, and I too would hate to see its idiosyncrasies smoothed down into a more conventional mode. Unlike some other series I could name, I never got the sense that the author didn’t know where they going with the story, and I have enjoyed watching them work their way toward the goal.

I can easily imagine how a professional editor would rework this series, but I can’t imagine that story actually being considerably better than this one.

I think Taiyaki should see these opinions. Maybe you two could write them on her twitter?

Also, she is planning to start re-writing right now and not in the future.

Is there another way to support author?

Another way from what? You can also buy her manga on Amazon:

Okay, I have a question for moderators or maybe anyone else here who could answer it.Upload requests should work if I'm just giving a link to another manga site where chapter is hosted, right? But I did that quite a while ago (more than 24 hours ago at least) and still no chapter here...

Depends on where it's from; usually links to https://mangadex.org/ are fine so long as the typeset quality is good. Sometimes things just take a while to be uploaded and approved here.

Got it, thanks. I try to upload it with links to MD now (first time I did it with link to manganelo).

I don't understand pixiv. Anyone got instructions on how to subscribe, or a link for it?

I posted instructions before for subscribing to her Fantia which is basically serve the same purpose as Pixiv Fanbox:
it's not a rocket science

That's not the issue here. The problem is that It was stated that Asuka was 15 during her flashback with Miyuki in her 2nd year of middle school: https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/1_x_volume_7_extras#2 But then if her birthday is in spring she can't be 16 in the autumn/winter of her 1st year of highschool when the manga starts https://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/1_x_ch02#9.

she'll go even more nuts after she figures out how ayako is attaching that tail to herself

She already knows how to attach it since she did it herself before:

Then she should be 17 at the beginning of the manga since school year begins in April and manga starts between autumn and winter of her first year of high school (remember Ayako saying about a lot of work because it's a change of seasons?) I'm sure that it was between autumn and winter specifically because after some time confession happened, Asuka got sick and stayed home during New Year. Then a new semester started, enter Akira, Asuka is still 16. She turned 17 around the time of the wedding (and I just remembered that we made a double mistake on page 2 of volume 6 extra which we never fixed - actually Asuka is 17 here and Ayako is 38).

Soo... since we all waiting here let's have a serious discussion: one of the Russian readers picked up on something that could be a major inconsistency regarding Asuka's age. If she is 15 during her winter of the second year of middle school, she can't be 16 throughout all winter of her first year of high school. Especially if she is a Taurus (birth date between April 21 and May 21), right?

Could it be there's a small mistranslation here?

They say "winter of the second year of high school" but everything they talk about actually happened to Asuka in her second year of middle school.

You are right, sorry about that. But on the other side I'm really glad that people reading all this bulk of text properly.

Vol 8 page 8 we have Kuwabara that's awesome!

Next Volume have Inui Ayu as a guest artist!

I would like to write my dissertation on Taiyaki's inability to properly number chapters. Geez.

Maybe I should clarify that the numbers Taiyaki gives to her chapters are not always the same as the numbers given to them on this site:

"Chapter 6.1: +α"
Chapter 6+α
"Chapter 8.1: +α"
Chapter 8+α
"Chapter 8.2: +β"
Chapter 8+β
"Chapter 10: +α"
Chapter 10+α
"Chapter 10: +β"
Chapter 10+β
"Chapters 13.1; 13.2"
Chapters 13-1; 13-2
"Chapter 13.1: +α"
Chapter 13-1+α
"Chapters 13.3; 13.4; 13.5"
Chapters 13-3; 13-4; 13-5
"Chapter 13.55"
Chapter 13-5 (second half)
"Chapter 13.56: Volume 7 Extras"
Volume 7 Extras
"Chapters 13.6; 13.6 (second half)"
Chapters 13-6; 13-6 (second half)
"Chapter 13.6: +a"
Chapter 13-6+α
"Chapters 16.1; 16.2; 16.3"
Chapters 16-1; 16-2; 16-3

Also while I'm at it - why is there only empty space above Chapter 15 instead of "Volume 9" inscription?

Btw someone correct me if im wrong, but didnt taiyaki at some point basically confirm there was gonna be a sex scene ? I seem to remember someone mentioning that in here and linking the tweet

That's the fourth time this link being posted in this thread I think... But I guess it's that important.

I think we're probably pretty close to the end. Google Translate is terrible with Japanese, of course, but if I interpreted a couple of Taiyaki's tweets from a while back correctly, she's said that this volume will be the last one.

It would be unfortunate if we were this close to the end. Does anyone else know anything about this? I'm personally hoping the we get to see at least 2 volumes worth from this point. 1 volume for them to deal with the implications of their feelings, and another to act on their feelings and act like a couple.

I'm 99% sure that this volume can't be the last one since current chapter is the last "normal" chapter in it. Next we are going to have an extra chapter and then with volume release some extra pages, afterwords and usual staff. So we'll only see a continuation of the last scene in the new volume, what a joy!

For example we still don't know full details about [...] Miyuki's situation yet.

Taiyaki wrote that the story of Ogawa sisters will be told in separate spin-off.

Speaking of which I just remembered that we have a couple of extras still waiting to be released. Goggled Anon, are you fine with typesetting them too?

Question, will you post raws Everytime? :)

When possible I mean? I am subscribed to taiyaki's pixiv but I lost my job due to virus and quarantined. Might not be able to pay it next month.

Since I'm banned on 4chan where I used to post raws for translation before, I kinda have to do it here now.
