Twelve Days of Doujinshi, Day 5: Dysfunctional Family? COUNT ME IN!

Sometimes I wonder why we don’t do more Final Fantasy VII doujinshi. Then I look at the box I have stashed under my bed chock FULL of the stuff and a sinister grin spreads across my face. Y’all don’t know who you’re dealing with.

OO Life
Series: Final Fantasy VII
Author: Pal (t.P.M.N)

Here’s one you don’t see everyday! A Strife-Lockhart-Wallace family doujinshi. Granted, Barret’s only in for one chapter, but for the rest of the time enjoy nickname gag, stupid misunderstandings, and a certain character’s obsession with a certain brand of underwear; and here’s a hint: it’s orthopedic. (WHY DO WE HAVE SO MANY DOUJINSHI ABOUT CLOUD’S SICK OBSESSIONS?!)

This doujinshi was edited by c0de_da1sy with help from Melfra, typeset and translated by yours truly, and scanned by Melfra!

And with that said, have a FABULOUS NEW YEAR, Y’ALL.

Twelve Days of Doujinshi, Day 4: When in doubt, count on Lina Inverse!

Haha, WOW. Here’s one we’ve been promising, gosh, for at least two years! I literally have no idea why it’s taken this long to do; mostly I’m just a lazy farker, but you know.

Rui Rui Teinyu
Series: Slayers
Author: Araizumi Rui

And if you enjoy this one, THERE’S FOUR MORE (!!!) WHERE THAT CAME FROM. (Maybe we’ll get to them in short order; maybe not. Melly’s already scanned them in!) Anywho, please give a GREAT BIG ROUND OF APPLE SAUCE (you heard me) to ZippyZippy for typesetting, Tom the Mighty for editing, and Melfra for scanning. Translation by yours truly as always, but don’t you dare give me applesauce; I hate that stuff.

Tomorrow…! Actually, I haven’t decided what we’re releasing tomorrow. IT’S A SURPRISE, THEN!

Twelve Days of Doujinshi, Day 3: ALL MY TEARS

Let’s pretend I posted this before midnight so it still counts as being on time, a’right? I couldn’t take the sham if I derped up so early in the game. LET’S KEEP ‘ER ROLLIN’! (And comments would help, too! Tell me what you guys are interested in, dammit!)

Go Die

Series: Wild ARMS 4
Author: Senkan

I can’t even guess why I love Senkan the way I do– but no one does Wild Arms quite the same way, and I eat up her stuff like there’s no tomorrow. Anywho, there are MAJOR spoilers for the end of the game, so keep that in mind when you think about downloading. This book was brought to you by the editing AND typesetting stylings of ZippyZippy, scanned by Melfra, and translated by yours truly. Enjoy!

Tomorrow, Slayers! (HURRAY)

The Twelve Days of Doujinshi, Day Two: Some Sling Guns, Others Mop


Magic Gunner Rin #4.5
Series: Type-Moon (Fate/Stay Night)
Author: Baselard

Aaaand THAT wraps up the Fate/Stay Night arc of Magic Gunner Rin. Next up, Melly’s (and my!) personal favorite: TSUKIHIME. Hnnnghhhhh. However sad it is to say, though, this arc is not complete, and it seems Baselard has no immediate intentions to pick the series back up. Still in all, it’s an enjoyable ride for what it’s worth, and we hope you stay tuned for part two. THIS DOUJINSHI! —was typeset and translated by yours truly, and edited and scanned by Melfra. Truly a double-team of epic proportions.

Tomorrow, Wild Arms! (Or Slayers, I haven’t decided yet. HA. THERE’S YOUR ELEMENT OF SUSPENSE.)

It’s Christmas! TURTLE STYLE

There’s something in the air, turtles. (That comma’s important because, let’s face it, as cool as it might be, there is no such thing as an air-turtle). It smells of pine trees, freshly baked cookies, warm eggnog. Ahh, the scent of late December. Yet one scent pervades all others. It is the smell… …Of total and utter despair. You think we have forsaken you, turtles? You think we have forgotten you and your craving, nay, your need for translations ranging from the guilty pleasures of Aya Shouoto to the swashbuckling adventures of one Lina Inverse and her motley crew? Perish the thought! For your turtles are BACK, turtles, and boy, do we have a treat (or twelve!) for you!


“But Reb,” you say, “what the in Davey Jones’ greasy dreadlocks is The Twelve Days of Doujinshi?!” I’m glad you asked, my reptilian friend, and kudos on the nautical reference! LET’S KEEP IT SIMPLE: Every year, we select twelve of the worst, the best, doujinshi known to the internet, yet tragically bereft of English translations, and we translate one a day for exactly twelve days leading directly up to the anniversary of Turtle Paradise Scanlations on the 6th of January. Last year we didn’t get to have it, and, well… WE’RE A DAY LATE SO FAR. Par for the course when it comes to your favorite turtles, of course, but we’ll have a double-day later on to make up for it.

With that said, let’s introduce our first entry for the year!

Magic Gunner Rin #4
Series: Type-Moon (Fate/Stay Night)
Author: Baselard

This saw a sudden resurgence in popularity a few months ago when certain online readers (eh, the usual suspects) decided to start hosting doujinshi as well. That’s one of the many reasons that we’ve decided to kick off this year’s Twelve Days with a group favorite, Magic Gunner Rin! Hell, you don’t even have to be familiar with Fate/Stay Night to enjoy this one — In fact, I can wholly recommend going into this one cold-turkey, since it ignores most of the rules of the world anyway, lawl. So enjoy the adventures of Magic Gunner Rin as we close off the Fate/Stay Night arc! (Sans the extra chapter, of course– but that’ll come later!) This chapter was edited by c0de_da1sy, typeset by ZippyZippy, scanned by Melfra, and edited by yours truly. Stay tuned for more from Magic Gunner Rin in the coming week!
