First of all, I want to apologize if there's anyone who follows my blog faithfully, waiting for something specific. It must seem that I've got my hand in too many cookie jars (I think I totally butchered the expression...) but the the truth is, I just post up here whatever crosses my path and catches my interest.
Recently I quit working with a scanlation group that I felt didn't appreciate my value (I don't have a totally over-inflated ego or anything... Oh, no, wait, actually I do! lol ) but one of the series I was translating for them I've been missing reading it, and luckily the magazine it's published in also recently started "Digital Release" campaign where they let you pay 580 yen to read the whole magazine online (for 180 days after the purchase only). It's not a download, so to get these RAWs I had to laboriously screenshot each page, which is kind of a PITA. However, it's much less of a PITA than the shipping fee of anywhere from 10$ to 35$ that I would have to pay to get a physical copy of the magazine! And it doesn't take up space in my room!
I think that this is a very reasonable compromise for anyone not living in Japan who still wants to support the author by buying from the original publisher, but who also can't afford shipping fees 3 to 10 times the price of the product! (Now if only Hana to Yume would come out with a digital release...!) As for the quality, you will see if you check out these RAWs, this is the largest zoom that the online reader permits. It's sufficient to make out the furigana, but in some cases not large enough to make out some handwritten kanji. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I want to strongly encourage everyone who is interested and able to try the Digital Release edition that Kodansha is offering on their website for several monthly magazines as well as well as full-sized volumes. The website's all in Japanese and it's a bit difficult to register an account, and also their online reader seems to only work in IE. Or, at least, it doesn't work for me in Google Chrome. But as much as possible I'll try to help you figure it out if you have any questions :D The website for Kodansha's online comics store is here: http://comic.bitway.ne.jp/cp/kc/top.html
Sooo, I am just going to share these medium-to-low quality RAWs here. I really don't know what is going on in this chapter, since I've not read this series since like Chapter 6 and don't especially like it. But I think there are a lot of people who do like it, so even if you can't read it because it's Japanese, I hope you can enjoy the gorgeous art!
PS: Please don't use these RAWs for scanlation, there is a group that is still working on this series and just waiting for a tankoubon release of the most recent chapters so they can have a really HQ result. I will be really upset if someone uses my RAWs to do project-snatching to them!
