Introducing the king of moe

Fangirls, fanboys, and casual readers in-between, lend me your ears! Tonight I impart upon your unready eyes a vision of the ultimate prince of moe! Okay, okay, I might be exaggerating. Lately he’s been more gar than moe tbh, especially with the sequence of stunts he pulled last chapter. Of whom do I speak, you ask? I’ll bet you already know! It’s…!

I hereby crown Seiran Asagi the undisputed king of moe. What’s this?! We have a challenger!! It’s none other than… Kaede Higa? Sorry, but you’re just a little awkward. You’re moe, but your shoujo heroine antics cancel you out as the forerunner for the title. It’s okay, bro. You’re still aces in my book.

This chapter! Typeset and translated by yours truly! Edited by c0de_da1sy! And QC’d by Melfra! This chapter continues our recent spree of fabulous extras, and by fabulous extras I mean a spin-off pamphlet begging you for fan input on the series. Although I would be interested on what people come up with for the caption contest… Leave your comments!

And speaking of comments, we’ve disabled commenting on the series pages because certain people are getting way out of hand.

I’ve heard enough about Junketsu. We’ve ALL heard enough about Junketsu. Here on the site, on twitter, IN EMAIL. Look, you guys are starting to make this feel like a job, and I shell out my OWN money (in excess of $100 a month, HEY FEEL FREE TO DONATE TO HELP OFFSET THAT) to do this as is. We know it’s been a long time since we last did anything on the series, and that point is valid. But I think it’s time to back off, because you’re not helping your case; you’re demotivating anyone on the staff even remotely interested in working on it (read: ME). I look at a chapter of Junketsu on my hard drive and try to motivate myself to work on it but I CAN’T, because I think of all the horrible comments we get, all the horrible emails we get, and I think to myself, “Do I really feel like rewarding that kind of behavior?” The short answer of it is no, I don’t. I know there are a lot of you who aren’t so aggressive and downright RUDE about it, and I hope that the people ruining it for everyone else will find it in themselves to step up and apologize. Until we get less pressure on this front, I’m not touching it. Not until I can look at a chapter and not be overcome by the urge to shut the damn site down and go back to working exclusively on doujinshi like we used to.

WELP, GOT THAT OFF MY CHEST. Apologies to anyone not particularly affected by it, or anyone who doesn’t care to hear about it.

thank you rebmastu, Melfra and c0de_da1sy! you guys just made my day ^^… and well it seriously sucks that so many people are pissing you off, especially people who don’t know how hard it is to work in a series (i tried and failed miserably).
thanks again! i send you my love in a non-stalker way xD


Thank you for this latest release. I expect it shall be up to your usual amazing standards, though I must admit I’m a few chapters behind on Barajou (bad me!).

Take as long as you need to with your releases. Anyone who appreciates quality will be patient and wait for it (hell, I just picked up the second volume of Drifters last night and that was a year long wait).


Grr.. people need to stop being butts to you guys. You devote your own precious time and money and they are turds about it.

Thats for the chapter of Barajou!! *massive hugs*


Oh god, how stupid can be the people, you are doing a great job!! And you`re so right: if they want realeases then they should translate on their own. Thanks for barajou no kiss, i cant wait for the final (i confess i search for it and found it in raws) but its great to understan what they say, hahaha. Well not stupid coments, sorry for make you waste your time, just rembember: THANKS, YOU ARE AWSOME (ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WORKS HERE)!!!!

Thanks so much for the new Barajou chapter!!! I love it this manga so much! You made my day!!! I’m so sorry that everyone has been so pushy with the Junketsu manga. I like that manga to but I can understand why you would have a lack of motivation. If I were in your shoes I wouldn’t want to deal with it either. It is okay with however long you take because you are amazing for working on it at all!! If I could do translation or anything to help you guys with this I would. So thanks so much… Read more »


Sorry people are being sh**s. But I love y’all and all the stuff that you all do for us! Keep in good spirits and know that you’re earning yourselves like … pounds of good karma. Tonnes! :D

Thanks for the release!


Thanks so much for Barajou you guys! Sorry you have to deal with rabid fans, that’s never fun. :/


Thank you for the release! I’m sorry to hear that so many people are impatient pricks who can’t appreciate a scanlator’s efforts to release such high quality work. I hope you guys get the apologies you deserve!
Btw, that chapter was awesome. I particularly liked Yakoh’s stupid sexy face and, of course, Mutsuki’s returned memories.
Thanks again! You guys are awesome!


Thanks for the post! Love you guys!!!! =)


That seriously sucks ._.
I can’t believe people would be that rude about Junketsu. Personally, I think you guys should do whatever you feel like doing.. cause you guys are the ones doing it. :)
Anyways, thanks for the release!!


You guys are awesome! I love -love- this series. Thank you so much for your hard work and scanlations. I can’t wait for the next chapter. Seriously, her cliffhanger endings kill me. Thanks again.

Thank you for taking your time and continuing this series even though people are being sh*t nuggets to you guys. High quality scanlated mangas are hard to find these days so people should have the hearts to be appreciate them and be patient. Besides, if they don’t the like the paste you’re working at, they should either translate this series by themselves or find another scanlation group with this series (though I doubt there’re any out there, and even if there was, your group would still beat in quality, typesetting, and everything overall). I’m willing to be patient and wait… Read more »
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU so much for all your hard work!! You guys all do a really great job. Also, this is my first time seeing the new reader and can I say the turtle at the top is so cute!! Another thing to add to the list of plushies I wish I had. It looks so squishy… The new reader is pretty awesome too :) Don’t listen to the idiots of the internet – release whenever the heck you want to. Much love to all… Read more »

Thank you so much for your effort and work into this site! =) Please don’t let rude people bring you down about this because it’s clear how much work and heart goes into this!


Thank you for all the releases! Don’t let haters bring you down… they just don’t appreciate all the work put into your scanslations. There are plenty of us that do! ^_^


Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your hard work and efforts! Thank you!! I’ve JUST discovered Barajou no Kiss and continue to love Birdcage Manor :)

Hey guys, just dropped by to say thank you and sorry. I know what it’s like to be on the receiving end of unreasonable behaviour, and I’m so sorry you have to put up with that, especially since you churn out such top notch scanlations for us geekies to view for free. = ( There are alot more appreciative (but silent) readers than there are very loud and obnoxious ones, so ignore them and let them rant and rage all they want; they’ve got everything to lose and nothing to gain if they keep up the way they have. =)… Read more »

Thanks for Barajou!~ Hopefully everone will be more appreciative!


Thank you so much! An awesome job on this release, as always. Don’t let the haters get you down. Anyone who actually pays any attention knows that you guys have reasons for your schedule and release dates, and that the high quality of what you do is always worth the wait!
