This is the thread for the "The Reader's Choice" event we are doing.

Event starts on January 15th, and will end on February 14th.

You must post your requests in this thread or it will not count towards the final tally. The same normal requests rules apply to this event. When requesting a series, give its name whether in Japanese or English, and a link to the MangaUpdates page for that particular series. Any request that does not follow that will not count.

Read the second post for information on some already requested series.

Guidelines:

- A maximum of 3 series requests per person. Any person with 4 or more series requested will not be counted.
- No requests may have a genre of shoujo, josei, and yaoi or contain netorare (NTR). Anything else goes.
- You may only alter your requests if a series you have requested is listed in the second post.
- The series must not already be completely scanlated. This is a given, but for some reason, we have received requests to redo some series that are already done.
- No currently ongoing weekly manga. I don't quite like this stipulation, but public scans for weekly manga are typically very, very bad. On top of that, subscribing to a weekly magazine is completely out of the question.
- You may request a manga that is considered "active" by another group. However, if the series gets regular releases and/or is caught up on its scanlation, it will not be counted, and we will not do it.
- It's not a requirement, but if the series already has publicly available usable scans, then that would help doing the project immensely. It also means we'd be able to start on it earlier, as if I have to purchase anything, it will take more time before we can start on it.
- It is recommended that people request something that has been dropped previously, or stalled considerably. We are a group that specializes in such series.

Going to make this post a post specifically for information on some series that have been requested.

Some people seem to not have checked our projects page, which can be found here. As there have been some requests for series we are already doing or plan on doing. The requests for the series below are not counted.

Zetsurin! - This is already a planned project by us.
Puchi Houndo - This is already a planned project by us.
Yumekuri - This is already a planned project by us.
Mushi to Medama to Teddy Bear - roan noticed this was requested, he contacted the group he translates it for, and they say they're still doing it.
Fukanzen Shinsei Kikan Iris - This is a new project pickup by the group Kiss Scans.
Kitsune no Yomeiri - This is already a planned project by us.
MM! - This is already an ongoing project by us.
Highschool of the Dead - The series is on hiatus in Japan, and has been for some time. Once news of it coming back from its hiatus hits (if it ever does), I'll definitely be looking into doing it, though.
Mondaiji tachi ga Isekai Kara kuru soudesuyo? - This is already an ongoing project by us.
Kandachime - As far as I'm aware VisTrans is continuing it again now.
OZ - This was/is an ongoing project by us, but Mixini seems to be releasing it again, so its current status by us is unknown, but one way or another it releases will get out there by someone.
Kitsune no Akuma to Kuroi Madoushou
Puppy Lovers - This is already an planned project by us.
Seishun Pop! - New ongoing project, joint with FTH/Japanzai.
Kaitai Shinsho Ø - New ongoing project
Sankarea - Active Vortex Scans project
Wa ga Na wa Umishi
I the Female Robot
Unbreakable Machine Doll - Active FTH project
Iris Zero - Manga is on hiatus in Japan due to the artist's illness.
Infinite Stratos - Active SimpleScans project
Date A Live - Active Village Idiot Scans project
Suashi no Meteorite - Active Riceballicious project
Maken-ki! - Active Kiss Scans project
Mashiroiro Symphony - Active Kiss Scans project. In fact, I'm typesetting chapter 2 for them.
Say Love - Shoujo
Sensen Spike Hills - Active KRA Scans project
Bokura no Koi wa Shi ni Itaru Yamai no You de - Shoujo
Akuma no Ikenie - Active PROzess project

The requests for the series are counted for now. I say for now, but the only way any of the series will be removed is if they start getting updates within the next few weeks.

Omae no Gohoushi wa Sono Teido ka? - More chapters of this should come soon, but I have no idea for sure. roan contacted the translator for the series, who said that he sent the group doing it half of the next chapter's translation.
Metal Heart - I received a request for this last month, and was going to pick it up, but the public scans for the series aren't debinded and iMS still considers it "active." Though if the public scans for it were usable, we'd already be doing it.

Kanade and Tsuzumi need members for their girl pop band, Angelilly. They think they’ve found two: Katsuragi Taichi, who wants to be like Cayenne, a guitarist from his favorite heavy metal band, Gigaween, and Maikura Uta, who wants to sing a solo part in chorus class as well as her sempai, Shiin. Now, Kanade and Tsuzumi have tricked Katsuragi and Maikura into joining their band under false pretenses. The two don’t know what they’re getting into, but their new life is just beginning.

Akiba Roumansu! - 2 volumes left

Closet otaku and school idol 16 year old Aiba Hina announces right at the start that she is going to quit being an otaku, but apparently she was going to stop being otaku because a manga character said he hates otaku. Fujoshi power max!

She tries to sell all her most precious otaku collections at I-books at Radio Kaikan 3F, but ends up getting seen by a classmate who was working there part-time at the register.

In order to hide her identity as an otaku she decides that the only way to salvage the situation is to assassinate the classmate who saw her in the store!?

Koudaira Yuuhei has had trouble finding an apartment, mostly because he doesn’t have a lot of money. When one rental agent agrees to take him to a cheap place he knows, he’s a little freaked out by the garlic necklace the man wears, but he goes anyway, and falls almost instantly for the landlady, a pretty young woman named Touno Tsukiko.

前略、百合の園より
Zenryaku, Yuri no Sono yori
Notes from the Garden of Lilies

Posted Image


Blond with an angry stare and a tough look, Kurashiki Yuri instills fear in her classmates.
When her "secret of secrets" is about to be exposed, it is Fujiwara Misono, honor student and the school's Saint who steps in.
From that moment on Misono shows a high interest in Yuri, but it turns out her personality is almost like a queen...?!

The scary-looking, quick-to-blush, pure-hearted girl...
And the unfathomable, indomitable girl with another side to her...

This is the story of their unwieldy and bewildering dramatic days!


Genre: Yuri, Comedy

Not done by any scanlating group, but few chapters was done by freelance translators/editors from Yuri-project

Thank you very much for doing this!

A very funny series where a guy (sort of) was forced to marry a Prince. Same author as Haru to Natsu so expect a healthy dose of /e/. Current scanlator is unable to continue the series due to lacking a Translator.

"For as long as he could remember, young Keisuke has been troubled by a strange phenomenon: he always seems to accidentally fall over on top of girls at the wort possible time, landing hands-first on their chest or face-first in their crotch.

One day, a magic angel name Ririi and her fairy friend Chappi descend from the heavens before Keisuke and reveal to him that he is in fact a legendary hero and these “accidents” were actually brought about as a result of a power that lay dormant in his groin.

Having been awakened to his fate, Keisuke feels an energy surge within him and suddenly a large black gun barrel arises from his crotch: the holy genital gun, Zetsurin Buster."

Stalled for a long time, the original scanlators disbanded not long ago and are more than willing to provide the scans they may have (and even cleans).

Momoiro Sango
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=2415
Original scanlator has not been seen for a long time. His other projects have been already picked up.

Seto no Hanayome
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=163
It has been shared by two different scanlators with one in charge of the earlier chapters and the other of the latest; the first has left it stalled for a year at only 3 chapters to fill the gap while the second quit around the same time at only two volumes and 4 chapters to the end, but seems to have the translations for at least 3 of the 4 odd chapters. (only 2 volumes and 7 chapters to wrap it up).
