Triage X Chapter 25 Raw

The NEO TV hostage crisis continues.

The Special Assault Team of the police force moves in to rescue the hostages, the wolf man is finally unmasked, and we see a new antagonist. After the last chapter, I was sure Arashi and Mikoto would join the fight soon, but there's no sign of them in this chapter. I guess we'll have to wait until next month to see the full Ampoule One team together again.

Maken-Ki! Chapter 48 Raw

I decided to do Maken-Ki! first this month since it seems to be more popular.

Even though Hidoi has resumed scanlation of this series with the help of Japanzai, their releases are so sporadic that I have no plans to quit posting raws yet. If they do catch up and start releasing scanlated chapters soon after they come out, I will probably just start doing spoilers or previews or something.

As I mentioned before, there was a chapter of Maken-Ki! Kai!! in this issue. If I do scan it, it won't be for a while. The next chapter of the main series will be in next month's issue. I'll have Triage X up a little later today.

Monthly Dragon Age - June (5/9/2012)

No Highschool of the Dead next month, and no news on when the hiatus might end. No one should be surprised at this point. I'm going to do things a little different with these monthly updates starting with this issue. Instead of just talking about HOTD, Triage X, and sometimes Maken-Ki!, I will be giving news and information on other series as well, primarily those that are being scanlated and deserve attention.

First is "Kore wa Zombie desu ka?," which has been the focus of Dragon Age because of its second anime season called "Koreha Zombie Desuka? Of The Dead." There's an announcement for the Limited Edition Volume 6 of the manga. It looks like it comes with Volume 6 with a different cover, a BD featuring unaired anime material (OVA), a booklet with new manga, and a special case for the BD. You can pre-order until July 10, and it will be released on October 20. You can find it on Amazon Japan.

The latest Dragon Age series to get an anime adaptation is "Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai." This was announced last month, so you probably already know this if you read the series. There's nothing particularly great about the series, in my opinion. It's kind of similar to "Highschool DxD," so if you liked that series, then you may want to check out this anime when it airs in July.

Speaking of Highschool DxD, that series and "Saikin, Imouto no Yousu ga Chotto Okashii n da ga." only have short omake chapters this month. Maken-Ki!, on the other hand, has a full chapter and a second full chapter for a side arc called "Maken-Ki! Kai!!" It takes place in the past when Minori, Aki, and the other teachers were students at Tenbi. It was originally in the first issue of Age Premium, which is Fujimi Shobo's online magazine. It looks like there's going to be another chapter of Kai next month, but I can't get Age Premium because it's apparently only available for Apple and Android devices bought in Japan. I probably won't scan the raws for this one, and if I do it probably won't be for a couple of weeks. I will, however, give you the raws for Maken-Ki! 48 and Triage X 25 later today or tomorrow. See you then.
