Description: The year is 1991 and 6th grader Yaguchi Haruo only has video games to live for. He's not popular in school and he's neither handsome, funny, nice nor even friendly. The only thing he has going for him is that he is good at video games. One day at the local arcade, he plays Oono Akira, a fellow classmate but who's popular, smart, pretty and a rich girl that absolutely destroys him at Street Fighter II. Not only does he lose to her 30 times in a row, he can’t beat her at any game. Haruo can’t seem to shake Akira off as she follows him from arcade to arcade everyday after school and beats him every time. As weird as it sounds, the odd duo begins a strange bond and friendship.

C'mon guys, I had finally settled on best girl and you shake my feelings up again.

When you have fluffy eyelashes and the biggest breasts in school and the boy you like only cares about video games:
Spoiler

That store probably rigged the controls so their ringer would win.

I know that feel, using a different button configuration will mess you up badly. Damn you, muscle memory.

So Ukyo is Hidaka's spiritual animal? 

 

Seems right but also tragic.

 

You shouldn't have betrayed yourself for power in KoF, Hidaka.

Thank you so much for this translation. I love this manga, it brings out so many great memories of the golden arcade days.

We're not, we have a translator but they can only do it kinda slow since they have other series they work on too.

Thank you for your hard work. This is one of very few manga which really depicts videogames nicely, I'm really glad whenever new chapter happen to be translated.

Take your time~

My boy putting that Ryo to work brought a tear to my eye

Aww seems like the scanlators are dropping this unless they get more translators. Hopefully they find some or another group picks it up cause I really like this manga.

I don't know most of these games but I still love the imagery. Hi Score Girl is very inspired.

 

Referring to ch34 but this applies the manga as a whole.

genocide cutter gave me ptsd... fak you hidaka...

I don't really mind who he ends up with because, to me, both are best. I want both for him to be honest.

Trivial (and fun) facts about SS2:

  • It's possible to do Ukyo's Tsubamegashi that low off the ground too by TKing it (2369/8/7+Slash).
  • Ukyo is considered the best character in the game. While Genan is around ranked around 4-6 overall depending on who you ask.
  • Speaking of Genan. From my experience, he can't bully like Ukyo can nor can he really bully Ukyo. But SS2 is such a fickle game that anyone can win due to it's ridiculous high damage.

As for using bosses in KOF. There's a player on 02UM QQ that uses Rugal, Krizalid, OG Zero, Zero, Nighmare Geese and does fairly well against other high ladder players with his team. Sure they are cheap characters, but rarely does anyone actually use them to their fullest like he does.

The cameo's!!!

Spoiler

What the fuck Hidaka.

 

Don't fucking use Rugal on a competitive match

 

If this was America someone would've shanked her for such act.

We all know which version is canon though, right? :^)

Just got done skimming through HSG:CONTINUE and SNK is almost completely written out of it. And I do mean almost completely - the only parts still in are Samurai Showdown and Kinf of Fighters 95, so that the previously unreleased volume 6 could be released with minor changes.

 

HSG:CONT has a few completely rewritten pages for a couple other games unrelated to SNK, but outside of SNK most of the changes are details like changing out screen captures for tracings and changing out a handful of odd games by other publishers for others. That said, seeing Hidaka's backstory go from girl with an MVS cabinet to a girl with a bunch of generic cabinets makes me a sad panda.

There's nothing cheap about that...

Oono just being salty...

Then she started physical attack on the actual player...

The game give the character that moves... And he can use it however he want...

Blame the developer not the player...

Also, it's all fair in casual gaming...

 

Well, in Double Dragon, the elbow attack was indeed broken. It was common knowledge. In a tournament, if it was authorized, why not...

 

But it was a friendly game (even if with a little wager), so he should have been fair. He took advantage of the fact she didn't know that game as well as him.

 

Anyway, that guy is consistently cheap. I don't understand how these two girls can like him.

Spoiler

 

The question is who will share the similar fate, Hidaka or Oono?

Double Dragon.

 

You could win that entire game with only elbow attacks.

 

In the end, that's what he used. But no snacks for him.

 

Serves him right for being so cheap.

Btw about frame data back then...

I think this video can explain it well enough...

 

D'aww, thanks for translating. Might've just been an extra but it really reminds me of how good their chemistry together is. Hope Volume 6 comes soon!

The new chapter (chapter 9.5) is a bonus chapter from the volume 1 re-release.

There's also 1 bonus chapter in the re-release of each of the volumes 2-5 as well, so we'll be doing those too (I don't know when though)

Thanks to Eyfey for translating this one :)

Also, I enjoyed this chapter a lot since I've played double dragon before, so it was really nostalgic for me.

Seems like this got another translator. Thank you, Eyfey and Ciel.
