Not much to say. It’s late here and I work in the morning. Just another short chapter this month. Go and get it!
Going to keep this short since it’s late here and I should be in bed already.
New Shinozaki chapter is out! Also we’ll have more volume omakes for you guys in the future!
The July raw chapter is out already, but it’s a short 4-koma chapter so we should have it done before the next month’s raw comes out.
As for Sekai Maou, I’m working on getting Volume 2 done, but progress has just been slow. I think I just need a good kick in the pants.

So I’ve been informed that there was a problem with some of the pages in our previous release of Chapter 36. A few wrong pages were placed into the zip file by mistake. I already edited the link on the previous post but it doesn’t seem like it’s been fixed in some of the reader sites yet.
So I’m making a new release post to get people’s attention. For the admins/uploaders at Batoto and Dynasty, could you please upload the correct version? Thanks!
Have you thought that Shinozaki hasn’t been gay enough lately? That there needs to be more yuri development?
Then this chapter is for you!
Well… there’s still not much in the way of real development though…
EDIT: I just realized I messed up on the zip file and a few pages were mixed in from other chapters. I’ve put in a fix.
Hullo! So we released a new chapter of Sekai Maou last month, but I forgot to put a link up on the site. You may have already read it on batoto and other reader sites, but if you missed it I’ll include the link here. Sorry about that!
Shinozaki has a new chapter as well, and it was just completed. This time I didn’t forget the release blog post! Link is also down below, enjoy!
We’re caught up to the Japanese raws for real this time!
And as I predicted a few months back, we got a New Years chapter. The credits page was filled with TL notes about all the Japanese culture references in this chapter, but there was so much we didn’t have room for the Otaku Culture! And so, here are the rest of the TL notes.
Otaku Culture TL Notes
- Washinomiya Shrine is a real Shinto shrine in Japan, one of the oldest shrines in the region. In the anime “Lucky☆ Star“, the shrine that Kagami and Tsukasa work as shrine maidens at is based off of the real life Washinomiya. As a result, the shrine ended up becoming a “holy site” for otaku, who travel there frequently during New Years and other holidays. While Akina might consider something like this a sacrilege, the shrine itself is more than happy to welcome the increased traffic, going as far as selling various otaku themed goods.
- Suwa Grand Shrine is a different Shinto shrine, and it is the real life inspiration for the Moriya Shrine in the Touhou series. Located in the Nagano prefecture, it is quite a distance away from Tokyo, over 200 km away! Assuming they took the train, it would be a three hour trip each way to get there, Hibari really is dedicated!
- Comiket is a 3-day event, but the unofficial “4th Day” of Comiket takes place in Akihabara, where the doujinshi shops receive tons new products fresh from Comiket. It is a good chance for otaku to pick up any books or games they might’ve missed out on during the actual event.
- Miko are shinto shrine maidens. They do not normally wear outfits that expose their armpits. However, Reimu from Touhou is a miko, and her outfit shows off all of the armpits. Kaede is clearly more used to seeing fictional miko than real live ones.
With this chapter, we’ve finally caught up to the Japanese raws! There only untranslated Shinozaki material out there now are a few bonus 4-koma.
The 4-koma that came with the drama CDs will not be translated until the drama CDs themselves are, since it won’t really make sense without it. Last time I checked the Seiyuuri team was still going to work on the drama CD, but I don’t know what their progress on it is like.
As for the 4-koma from each of the volumes, we don’t have the raws! We were only sent the raws for the second volume ones, so if anyone has some of those raws and would like to see these bonus chapters translated, please send it over!

EDIT: GODDAMN IT! WHY MUST YOU MAKE A LIAR OF ME, HIKAWA. The latest raw chapter just came out, about a week earlier than I thought it would. Damn you!
Here is a double release for you guys! Chapter 32 and 32.5 are both translated and ready today! Hit the jump for the links!
Here at long last is our off-season Christmas chapter.
We’re almost there! Only one more full chapter and one 4-koma omake chapter before we’re caught up to the Japanese raws! Can we do it before Hikawa-sensei releases another chapter next month? Fingers crossed!
