Josei Oneshot: “Butakai Ouji to 100-kai Kisu” Part 2

Swineherd_Prince_070Here is the second part of “Butakai Ouji to 100-kai Kisu” and with that, the story comes to an end. I really enjoyed working on this project.  It was an important project for me to take on in terms of getting used to no help from furigana (kanji only) and the mature content. I really wanted to see whether I could do josei to my satisfaction and now that I’ve done this, I feel a lot more confident about taking on josei projects in the future. I want to thank MnD for cleaning help, Clairpartfait and Jade for helping me with the translation, and Zenny for proofreading and QC. Great job everyone!

If you like this story, I suggest you purchase the book and give Tsunami Umino some love. It’s a very high quality book with a nice glossy wrapper cover, thick pages, and it’s large format. It’s well worth the 667-yen.  Here’s are some links to purchase:

(As of today, the books are sold out.  I hope there will be a new run in a couple of weeks.)

It’s late in my part of the world now and I’m sleepy. So I’m going to do the release now and then write my thoughts in a comment tomorrow.

And now onto the release! Read the rest of this entry

Josei Oneshot: “Butakai Ouji to 100-kai Kisu” (The Swineherd Prince and the 100 Kisses”) Part 1

Swineherd_Prince_006

It’s been a while! But I suppose that’s to be expected since mature content is not our focus at Omari’s Sister. Anyhow, this is our first adult josei project. It’s by no stretch hentai or anything you’d see in a ledicomi, but it’s graphic enough that I’d say this is for folks 16 and older.

This oneshot is based on the Hans Christian Anderson fairytale “The Swineherd.” The first 75% of the first part adheres to the original story.  The second part, though, is a continuation of the story purely from the mind of Tsunami Umino.  I like Umino-sensei’s version a lot better. This is a story I can easily visualize as a live action movie. Actually, I would love to see this as a movie. It’d make a great chick-flick.  Needless to say, this is one of my favorite oneshots so far.  I still like “World’s End Garden” better. I’ll have more to say about my thoughts on this oneshot when I release the second part. The matters in this story are complex and the full complexity isn’t revealed until the second part.

Please let us know if you like stories like this. If you want more, then I’ll keep my eye out for mature oneshot and short project possibilities. I have more works in my manga collection by this mangaka, so we can and we will explore more of this artist’s work in the future.
