126 and 127 just got translated.
You can find all the chapters up to 127 online or on nyaa
Hopefully translator anon will make another appearance.
jap blog making a chronological list of all the chapters:
I'll be dumping pics in the meantime.
There should be a batch for each volume.
But you can just go to a manga reader site if you're lazy and read what you missed.
She is Kon Futaba, 3/4 british, 1/4 japanese.
From Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru, an ongoing SoL manga with a huge cast by Masakazu Ishiguro. What's unique is that even minor characters can get chapters dedicated to them.
Animated by shaft a few years ago.
Was about to do that. Thanks brah.
I guess I'll dump more Kon
Kon a best! BEST!
Yeah, she pretty much is the best.
It's funny how /a/ quickly forgets their "seasonal waifus". I remember when soremachi was airing and there were a ton of Kon threads.
Or perhaps /a/ is too full of newfags.
Crunchy seems to have left out the title page of 127 for some reason.
It's awesome how Ishiguro even makes a chapter for the most minor of minor characters.
Warning: this pic is extra lewd.
My favorite chapters are definitely the Hotori/Kon ones. Chapters featuring Hotori's family come real close too.
The anime is 2nd favorite adaptation by Shaft.
Arakawa still my favorite.
Does anime follow the manga? Or should I just start reading at chapter 1.
I heard Kon's VA didn't do any other anime after Soredemo(which is really disappointing).
But I liked Hottori better(that whiny voice and also that ass).
Here's a fanart based on that chapter.
Apparently, リアルあき is the name of the artist drawing all these pics imitating Ishiguro's style.
I wonder if this anon >>133089256 knows if the artist has a blog or homepage?
>I wonder if this anon >>133089256 knows if the artist has a blog or homepage?
I don't know. I don't think he has one. リアルあき is what the posters in the SoreMachi threads call him, I don't remember him using the name himself.
Yeah, I've gotten all his artwork from stalking soremachi threads on 2chan. I believes he posts his art there himself. He's so good at drawing Ishiguro's style you'd almost believe it's official art.
I love these one off characters the most.
>these 2 semon demons
Here's something Ishiguro drew for a friend's wedding. I guess we'll never see the rest of it.
Animation is pretty wonky for Shaft.
Voice acting is great. Especially for Hotori and Kon.
Some people found the anime too slow, but I'd recommend it. Pretty comfy.
>is the anime any good?
I didn't like it. I guess it depends on what you think about the casting choices and how you feel about Shaft.
He probably draws extra lewd pics for his friends.
He definitely has practiced drawing all the girls nude.
Spunky punky fake blondes with an attitude are the best.
Is he supposed to be a parody of someone?
She just doesn't like strong tasting things.
get in line.
>Kon being attractive is canon
Who doesn't love bad girls with a heart of gold?
I'd recommend the manga.
The anime can be a little slow in grabbing interest. Definitely isn't a show with "twists" or big endings at the end of the episode. It's comfy all the way through and doesn't hit a high until the final episode.
The manga has A LOT of references and reading it will allow you to enjoy the anime much more.
I love how Futaba is so fond of this series they keep Photoshopping lewds.
>you will never cuddle with Kon after consensual sex in the missionary position for the purpose of procreation and call her Futaba
I'll be happy to keep dumping if we can gather the attention of some translators.
That artist is helping me fuel my soremachi waifu addiction.
Have a super lewd tatsuno.
I really love the B-side song to the ED single - the insert song the girls sang at the concert.
Kon's solo at this time is particularly hot. I wish the VA didn't quit to pursue college...
the translator would surely deliver it
in a pastebin as promised
I'll keep posting what I can. What's cool is that he even draws lewd pics of the minor characters. But that nipple mod has me cautious about posting stuff that is too lewd so I got to be careful...
I think Kon is the best waifu, but Tatsuno is still the hottest. Well, actually Shizuka nee-chan and the recent artist girl are hot too.
Every place you've been checking, I've probably checked too. Pixiv is pretty dry on soremachi art. And usually twitter will have art, but it's dry too. However, the 2chan threads are still producing soremachi art every time a new chapter is released, so I guess I'll keep stalking 2chan to find more pics for you guys.
Eh, posting in /e/ would just help kill the threads here. I'll keep posting lewd stuff here. Just slowly. I want to keep having soremachi threads so we can get some japanese readers who are more familiar with the extra stuff related to this series like that blog.
Yes. That's the nips favorite OTP
No. That's 2ch just ask hiroyuki.
Yeah, that's definitely Ishiguro's OTP
Sorry, I meant to post THIS pic that was based on the beach scene with hotori and kon.
Now I don't want to blow through all the good pics when this thread is not very active, so I'll stop. Let's see if we can keep a thread up while we wait for some jap readers to visit this thread that can share with us some more trivia. Like I never knew about this >>133109193
>gets a physical English release.
I swear it has one. I remember when Ishiguro visited a comic con in the US and drew in-person for the crowd.
I'll never get over how Hotori and Fuuka look alike
It's popular; it's also fairly competent, and all the characters are well excecuted and likeable.
So we can't have waifu wars or shit-talk about trainwrecks, and quite frankly that's what /a/ is for.
I wish it was more popular. I guess I could only attract a crowd here with my lewd pics dumping, and that's not going to last forever.
>A regular release schedule
Erratic scanlations are probably the biggest interest killer there is.
The series was introduced basically with the anime. (The only person I think mentioned the manga beforehand was Yutanpo and some one random dump of chapter 1) and the series was pretty sub-par and there were really no scanlations beyond volume 2 for a long time. Plus, the manga's not really in a format to be widely popular here. It's got little material to shitfling over other than quackposting and yuri-baiting.
It's just not that kind of manga that new chapters would really spark up anything amazing here on /a/.
It's like haibane renmei or mushishi, when people do discuss it everyone gets along and can agree it's good but those events are scarce.
Cool. I was actually content never posting them here, but the surprising activity response we got in the previous thread made me start dumping in hopes of getting stuff translated.
I'll be here tomorrow evening after work, and I'll continue dumping if there's a thread. Not too much A+ material left though.
I don't want to upload anything to a booru just like the soremachi fans on 2chan aren't uploading the pics anywhere. I think they've gotten successful at making continuous soremachi threads every 2-5 days by dumping lewd pics in all their threads to attract attention.
I'll follow their same strategy here and keep posting pics in hopes of getting some more frequent soredemo threads. Since the manga is released monthly, fanart is probably the main thing to keep threads going and uploading to a booru would stop this.
We could probably get a few more good threads going before we all go into hibernation until next month with an occasional thread once or twice a week.
I'll still follow the practice the japs are doing in 2chan for their soremachi threads since it is working for them
I'll probably run out of things to dumps in a few threads if I continue at this rate, anyway
At least they keep drawing stuff on 2chan, but it's mainly that one based dude that copies Ishiguro's style.
That you'd actually have to be serious with her, and not act like it was a meaningless fling. None of that running around being all lovey and engaging in loud public displays. A more advanced relationship than what your typical teenaged boy can handle, which is to say anything more than just awkwardly making out. An emotional connection over a physical one.
/a/ does have an archive, you know. Nothing I'm posting is getting lost forever after the thread dies.
I meant on 2chan they usually have a 1-3 threads a week and they keep reposting the same pictures over and over. I guess it's to attract people to their threads that haven't seen the pictures yet since I can't imagine there is really that much to discuss over multiple threads a week.
Anyway, I'm not going anywhere anytime soon.
Sorry I'm late. This covers only the 1st year and English is not my 1st language, so correct me if something is wrong. http://pastebin.com/1GS6BreJ
I'm doing the rest but this thread has so may distracting lewd pics that I can't concentrate on translating.
Cool dude. Enjoy the pictures I've been dumping in return!
I just realized that many not be Kon..
I wasn't actually talking about your posts, but the 2chan guys.
But I didn't realize that they reposted over the week. That's good to know.
I hated the thought of all those good pics appearing once and then forever disappearing like sandcastles at the shoreline.
>I hated the thought of all those good pics appearing once and then forever disappearing like sandcastles at the shoreline.
Well, they usually have 2-3 threads a week. And up to 5 a week if a chapter was just released (especially if it's a chapter focusing on the girls since that spurs the artists to draw more). They cycle through fanart reposts from the last couple of weeks before they start reposting new art. So basically every month the soremachi threads on 2chan have new art corresponding to the latest released chapter that they keep reposting in all the threads for that month.
It pains me to think of all the good fanart on 2chan that probably is lost from us before I started looking for their soremachi threads. The series was already half way through before I started stalking their threads.
I want to date a Kon!
Top girlfriend material and you know it.
Yeah, but he utterly loathes her, and not in a hatefuck kind of way. She's everything he despises.
It was trolling rather than love on her behalf anyway, she moves on pretty quickly.
Is this Hotori and Kon grown up, or Shizuka and someone else?
That's from another story by Ishiguro, Nemurubaka.
It's funny how similar the designs are. The japs in 2chan have even made charts showing all the comparisons.
That reminds me. Ishiguro has another series called Mokuyoubi no Furutto that literally seems like an AU version of Kon. Strange. I don't know if that really is Kon and her cat, Canary, but it's the exact same character designs.
>haven't read the manga
>still have lots of Kon
Probably has an incredibly healthy sex drive too.
The best of girlfriend material.
I couldn't edit the previous post, so this is a new url. Only covers 1st and 2nd year
And this is the final version. It covers all the blog article from 1st year to 3rd. I'm not sure if the order is correct. But I think it's helpful enough.
I'm glad you were able to come around before the thread I made died.
Thanks. Are you interested in translating other parts of that soremachi blog?
>but it's the exact same character designs.
There was a joke about that in an early chapter: what if Furutto was drawn in a non-SD, 'real' style. It's also where リアルあき's name comes from, since he started drawing these 'real' versions of Furutto's Kujirai (the Kon lookalike).
Yeah, I was wondering where Ishiguro was going with making the designs exactly the same.
But why fix what isn't broken with Kon's great design anyway?
I guess he just likes that design.
Ha. I got the lewd version of that. Bless those japs.
Thread is pretty ded. But yeah, Nemurubaka was pretty cool for a one shot. Honestly, it should have been part of the soremachi universe. I hate to see those one-off characters die off.
Funny how Hotori is the one with the panty shots but all the rest seem to escape that fate.
It's morning in europe, and night in most america, so there's not many people to say anything right now.
Do raws of 'motto!' exist? I haven't found any.
Going back to the early chapters feels weird because I always remember the art as being the same, but it clearly has changed over the years.
Remember the chapter?
I read on Futaba that Ebi is based on Ishiguro's grade school girlfriend. Maybe it's true.
There's a number of one-shots by Ishiguro without raws. I hope at least some of them get a volume release.
Lots of lewd stuff. But also some interesting discussion, usually after a new chapter or volume has come out.
After watching the first episode of this show, I almost wrote off the whole thing as crap. But 3 weeks later, boredom got the best of me, and I gave it another shot. It got better and better.
>you will never hang out in a laundromat with 3 girls wearing nothing but underwear, talking about futuristic alien vending machines.
Damn you shaft.
Futaba is really fond of shopping lewds of Soremachi.
Why is Kon a miracle of the prefecture?
>Just watched the first episode of the anime
holy shit, I wasn't expecting this.
It's crazy in a good way.
Maybe she's also a yandere.
>and has an interesting personality
She often comes across a bit stuck-up or mean, in contrast with Hotori who gets along with pretty much everyone.
He really is too pure for his own good.
I thought this was the first time we heard about Sanada being confessed to, but it was mentioned earlier and even Hotori knew about it.
The interections of this manga are very well made, very realistic and "genuine", if you get what I mean.
Yeah, that one and the 2 Kon's flashbacks are probably my favourite chapters.
What we need is a long haired Hotori.
How about a short-haired Tattsun?
Anybody read this?
I think only the first couple of chapters were ever translated.
I do. It's okay, sometimes clever and only two pages per week with furigana so it's fast and easy to read.
Thanks, man. Have my favourite minor character.
It seems more like what Mitsuru Adachi does, reusing his favourite characters designs like a director casting the same actors for his movies.
I know that Adachi can't draw many different designs, but I still think that was his intention. Maybe.
With wild misunderstanding as side effect.
Sanafag should have confessed in this chapter.
Thank you, I have read the first chapter, it's great.
I just started re-reading the manga
damn, I forgot about the arc where Hotori
shit got real fast
Search your feelings anon, you know it to be true.
Kon is a pleb and she always has been.
I just want more of Maka's voice. Is that too much too ask for? And where the fuck is here seiyuu anyway!?
I'm back you niggas. Anyone want me to dump more pics?
Oh wow, I loved this show and comic, I'm glad somebody picked up the slack. I remembering seeing the date go up and up on bakaupdates, hoping someone would pick it up.
>My face when watching the show and Shaft's only original contribution is that laundromat episode with them all in their undies.
Cool. I'll see how much I got left of リアルあき's great fanart.
The nips love Suzu-chin.
This pic is hilarious once you know the context.
Oh, I got plenty more and they get even lewder. I wasn't kidding when I said the japs love her.
She has really best personality. Cheerful, caring, confident, maternal, truly an owner of heart of gold.
The japs like pairing up Suzu with other girls for some reason
They have great taste, she's really sexy and funny, and that body language, man.
I have to agree, but a lot of other girls are equally great.
Time to get lewder
Don't worry I got plenty of Kon left too. She has by far the most fanart.
I just spent 10 seconds on google and found the first 2 volumes on nyaa. I know there should be a raw for the 3rd volume too. I'd love it if you could help translate. The japanese looks simple.
The first five chapters got translated a while back. Maybe someone can dump it while I dump more fanart.
It seems only the first five chapters were ever translated before the team stopped.
I would be ecstatic if someone could continue translating since the story is really "The alternate universe SoL adventures of Kon"
Try searching the japanese name.
I really hope you can give it a shot. You got the first five chapters to get into the series here http://bato.to/comic/_/comics/mokuyoubi-no-furutto-r3648
These "Chibi / Normal" Kon fanarts are from the series
Yeah, it's a great cast all round, but I find her exceptionally charming.
Thanks for that pic, hot as hell.
Should I move on to a different girl or do people want more Kon?
I still got more Suzu-chin art no worries!
I could post Kon forever. She has so much art.
I like it when Sanada slips into his absurd fantasies. Even in his fantasies something always goes wrong.
I find his chapters the most amusing. I wonder how it will be resolved though? I think Hotori will eventually decline his advances.
Yeah, some of his scenes are comedy gold.
Is that even a question?
Honestly, I don't want to see you getting banned, so no
Well, I'll post more lewder stuff, but not all at once. Nervous about getting banned from the overzealous mods...
Aw, thanks. I don't want to see you get banned either.
I'm dumping slowly so I don't blow my whole collection at once and kill the activity in the threads. (And to keep other people looking to fap from leaving the threads lol). I'm hoping we can attract some translators here. We already got someone who said he could help us with Mokuyoubi no Furutto.
Someone name another character for me to post.
>bless you, soremachi dump anon.
I don't mind if we can get some equally generous anons to help us translate stuff.
Ooh, Shizuka has a ton of lewd stuff.
Hope that one anon reading Mokuyoubi no Furutto comes back
I wonder what the relationship is like between Hotori and Takeru
Damn, I seem to have missed a whole Soremachi thread.
Well, posting my incomplete Kon outfit compilation anyway
I'm still here dumping pics in my thread. Waiting to see if we get any response from someone who can help translate stuff
>Damn, I seem to have missed a whole Soremachi thread.
Well, posting my way too pure Hiroyuki gif anyway.
Sorry, I don't have much to contribute other than random gifs.
Don't worry. Just being here to help increase activity is good enough.
wait, is that the guy who does tomo-chan?
No problem thanks for showing up friend.
not-Hotori cameo in Nemurubaka
Look, even Hiro has his limits.
that is some sick shit right there.
