[Hakka-ya] Strawberry Glaze

Strawberry Glaze

Gosh, my last release was November 2013.  D:  If anyone gets their hands on more Hakka-ya raws lemme know.  Make sure they’re actually raws and not Chinese scanlations though.

Strawberry Glaze features the usual Bucap cuteness… with cameos from Kana, Nodoka, Yumi, Kanbara Wahaha, and others.  And are there untranslated doujin (whether by Hakka-ya or not) that feature Kana’s unrequited love for Mihoko?  I wouldn’t mind taking a peek at (and possibly translating) those.

Or heck, if there’s some super cute/cool (non-sexual, or at least, sex should not be the focus of the doujin) yuri doujin/manga you want translated, send them my way and I’ll take a look.  (No promises.)

Hint: If it involves “Iya… dame…”, “Kimochi ii…”, or “Kanjichau…!” cliches, giant boobs, OoC, or any men, it’s not my cup of tea.  What it should have is originality, good art, and an interesting storyline/lots of fluffiness.  I’ll obviously be more interested if you share something from a fandom that I’ve already mentioned on the blog, but it’s not a prereq.

So yes, I have been kind of dead, yada yada, but here you go.

I dunno if it’s the addition of Yumi (and a little Kajumomo) but somehow it doesn’t have as much of the d’awwww feeling as the usual Hakka-ya Bucap?  Dunno.

Incidentally, I am feeling more excited about the second season of Psycho-Pass (let’s hope Urobuchi ups the gaylicious factor with Shion, Yayoi, and hopefully, the new Inspector girl Shimotsuki) than the second season of Saki (the new art style makes me cry a little, and with the focus ostensibly on mahjong, I don’t see Bucap getting much love) or the upcoming Hisa chapters in the manga.

And is it just me, or is MediaFire being a butt and not letting me upload .zip files with Japanese characters in them?

(With Sweet Confections)

A big thank you to Kuro, Saluki, and WeatheredPeach from Yuri Project for networking with 百度天才麻将少女吧 and making this release possible!

Okay, so this is the last untranslated Hakka-ya (Bucap) raw that I have on hand.  I haven’t been in contact with Yuri Project per se for a while, so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to continue translating Hakka-ya stuff, or if someone else will be getting the raws to work on (or if they’ve been translated already), and so on.  But I will keep you all abreast when I know.

(As you can probably tell from my last two releases — surroundings and Amai Okashi to, I kind of left them last since they’re relatively speaking, low on the Bucap factor.  And I’m not too fond of Nodobewbs, so.  8D)

With that said, please enjoy this Hakka-ya doujin, whether you’re a Bucap fan or if you ship KajuMomo or whomever.

P.S.  With the huge overlap between Bucap fans/yuri fans/Shizuru x Natsuki fans, I’m assuming you all know what ‘kaichou’ means, which is why I left it untranslated in the doujin.  ‘Kaichou’ in a school setting usually just means the student council (congress!) president.

So okay, let’s get this out of the way — Mihoko doesn’t actually appear in the doujin itself, but it’s so much about Bucap that you won’t believe it.

As the title “surroundings” suggests, it’s about people around Hisa (namely, Irrelevant Male Character (don’t worry, nothing happens :D), Fujita Yasuko (Katsudon-san), and Yumi).  It’s quite well-written, and I really like how Hakka-ya approached it?

I didn’t translate the one with the guy in it (it’s only a few pages long), but you can read more on it in the Notes attached to this release if you’re interested.

I think it’s adorable how lovey-dovey Hisa is even when Mihoko isn’t around.  She’s so silly and adorable!

Hope you’ll enjoy this, since I know it’s been *cough* awhile since the last release!

P.S.  Again, I’m having trouble with yet another file hosting site that is not MediaFire… isn’t there anyone out there who knows of one that allows files to be kept on even after 30 days of inactivity?  I need two good file hosting sites at any given time.  I hate the shitty ones that are thinly disguised attempts to get your e-mail address so they can spam you.  The best I can find so far that isn’t MF is Data File Host, which will keep files on for up to 60 days of inactivity, or so it says.  Still, I would appreciate any other recommendations for future reference — ones that require the least amount of effort for people to download stuff (e.g. no wait periods or CAPTCHAs).

Happy New Year!

Lucky you, another present.  :D  And again, this is the sequel to the original Kiyosumi Captain Monogatari.  As always, note the little… mark.

And, I was fairly amused by the very last panel since it echoes another scene within the Hakka-ya doujin verse.  :D  Does anyone else remember which title it was or what I’m referring to?  I’m 95% sure I remember where it came from.

Thanks to Kuro, Saluki, and WeatheredPeach from Yuri Project for acquiring Hakka-ya doujin raws from 百度天才麻将少女吧 and making this possible!

Whee, another one!

This one’s a little different from the usual Hakka-ya, I think.  Might have something to do with the fact it’s Valentine’s themed.  You’ll have to read it to find out how though.  :D

In other news, Tokumi’s put out a catalogue of the things that’ll be on sale at C83 in a couple of days (Dec. 29th – 31st).  Of the greatest interest to us would be the two new Bucap doujinshi:

Even though I don’t really celebrate Christmas beyond worshipping glorious turkey gravy and mashed potatoes with buttery goodness, I’ve decided to get a bit into the holiday spirit!  :D

Some things to look forward to are…

Capbu… and piggyback rides!

And in case you’re not familiar with the Japanese convention of naming pairings, the name that comes first is the ‘seme’ (‘tachi’), and the name that comes after is the ‘uke’ (‘neko’).  Clearly the Japanese have no concept of equal relationships for anime characters, but let’s leave that for another day…

The reason you’ve only ever heard of Buchoucaptain is because, well, Hisa’s Hisa.  :D  But Capbu is equally valid if done well, and I think it works fairly well here too.  Well, that is one of the reasons why I like Hakka-ya so much.  Since people actually stay in character!  :D

Hope you all have a happy holidays, regardless of what you celebrate or don’t celebrate, or whether you’re experiencing the dead of winter or the heat of summer! ( ^__^)b

And now a random picture of Ogasawara Sachiko to celebrate the wintery fun because she’s just… so… dreamy.  Why yes… I’m 100% a Sachiko fangirl.
(Sei’s one of the coolest lesbians ever, though.  :D)

She’s perfect when she’s angry. :D


P.S.  Check back in… I dunno, twenty-four hours for another surprise.  :D
