(the comments here are hilarious)

Whoo!

This was super duper good - quite a bit better than I think some earlier in the thread were giving it credit for. I wrote up a big thing but I'm way too embarrassed to ever post something like that. It was really awesome to see societal pressure actually shown for once, rather than being this unseen spectre looming over a hidden relationship. For all the feeling of early-YH stories that this gives, it really flips the bad tropes upside down and makes its own way.

Thanks so much, YP!

Mari is completely OP in this. Kumichou is still the best! (and of course so are the Sexy Akiba's).

my theory is: akira died, ruri made a time machine because he's a scientist prodigy, and pure made the trip because she wants to spend time with akira, kinda subtly telling you, akira is not gonna survive whatever it is that killed her.

Agreed, but isn't Ruri making the time machine right now as a kid, after his mother's death?

Lots of Kissing is my favourite tag.

This is a standalone story, but Kuma's UmiMaki and UmiMaki2 can be found on Kuma's pixiv. They're in Chinese, so they won't be uploaded here!

"I will always, always love you, dude."

They're so cute together. Great translation <3

This is cute, I really like how much personality is stuffed into so few pages. Here's hoping it turns out good!

I think this story is supposed to be a comedy of sorts, but it felt super icky to me. Disappointing considering the artist.

As if I didn't already love Irua enough, the author notes alone ought to have earned this the Comedy tag.

Suggestion: It's not possible to search for chapters within a series by their name. For instance, in A Kiss And a White Lily there is a chapter called Our War For The Crimson Roses, yet neither Crimson Roses nor the whole string bring me any results. It would be nice if this functionality were added to the site.

I thought it might be prudent to include a note to Natsu Matsuri that's it's not actually the author's name or alias, and that it's only included for completeness, so people who knew them by that old alias can still find them?

For sure, I'll add a note in the artist's description.

I'm quite OCD when adding manga to my personal collection. I have a complicated system of naming and sorting, and include a lot of information in the file names. To support this I need to research the items I add (main one being publication date, since I find doujins and one-shots should ideally be sorted according to author first, publication date (+convention/magazine) second). I then come across these discrepancies (or omissions).

Well I'm glad you do! Ideally the site should be as complete and accurate as possible. I quite enjoy scavenger hunts, so I'll look forward to the next challenge you present.

The anthology Éclair has the story attributed to Kawanami Izumi, so I'd assume that is their real name.

How does that all look now? I've left JAM under the original listing, as I'm not sure what else to do with it.

That's interesting, and I assume your basic premise is correct - nice catch. I would bet that a more definitive answer on the author's alias/name lies somewhere in the interwebs of ShizNat scanlations. I'll take a deeper look into it within a couple days.

This was a difficult journey! Probably moreso than it had to be. It's amazing to me how much can disappear from the internet, never to be found again. Thankfully, I eventually located the source. This site, which contains the original versions of those comics, run by an artist going by the alias of B.C sanshou (Or sansyo, if you prefer their romanisation). I've gone ahead and revised their page on the site, and will leave Natsu Matsuri as an alias, since there are surely some who know them by that name now. Again, thanks for pointing this one out!

This is currently being translated on danbooru for those who like to follow along that way.

Is it allowed to upload your own manga on here or does this site only host manga from professional artists?

We host anything we deem interesting, no matter who authors it. (Do keep in mind that we have quality standards that can vary piece-by-piece.)

Also, is there any way to contact the staff about this?

You can email me here, or you can put in an Upload Request to forgo that formality.

And can I take down manga I submitted if I am the author?

Yes, of course.

I found an odd thing:

There is an author listed by the name "Natsu Matsuri". They have two Mai-HiME doujins attributed to them: "Sleep" and "Summer Festival".

In a discussion for "Sleep", a user made the suggestion that the author name was in fact "Natsu Matsuri" (based on a style similarity), so I guess it wasn't put as such, or the story wasn't attributed them earlier (before Feb 2015)?

Translating the story name "Summer Festival" you get "夏祭り", romanized "Natsu Matsuri".

So as I see it, "Natsu Matsuri" or "Summer Festival" is only the story's title and the author is actually not stated (and isn't "Natsu Matsuri"). This fits with the theme of the story, so I find it likely. This is also the way the story is listed on Baka-Updates (that is, unknown author).

What do you think?

That's interesting, and I assume your basic premise is correct - nice catch. I would bet that a more definitive answer on the author's alias/name lies somewhere in the interwebs of ShizNat scanlations. I'll take a deeper look into it within a couple days.

After this ordeal I'd just like to double-check - are you one hundred percent sure about that before I pass your request along?

Yes. 100% sure

Sad to see you go (I may not know you at all, yet I do sincerely mean it). I'll pass along your request. Would you like your posts removed as well?

As best as I know, Casusby is the highest decision-maker, omnscient0 is tasked with running the technical aspects of the site, dpf uploads and occasionally regulates the Forum, Nez moderates the Forum, and the hosting space for the site is provided, for free, by GOD, as he goes by in IRC.

The old 4-koma oneshot is now a series? Or something like that. I'm very sorry for my delay in uploading this. Thank you to the gracious author as always for allowing us to host his work.

Unfortunately, at the time of this upload the old discussion entry for Dark Widow can't be moved, but the old thread can be found here. My apologies for the inconvenience.
