Stretch has ended

The final Stretch chapter has been released today. Albeit surprising, it wasn't completely unexpected what with Stretch having covered pretty much everything about stretching. If it'd been a normal series, it might have gone on longer, but it started out as a series about stretching after all. I'm not a fan of this type of endings, but I guess not every manga can have a satisfying ending like Molester Man. I really liked Ran, Keiko, Saki, and their interactions though. It's interesting how conversations in manga are easy for me to translate if they're natural and well-written. Stretch was very good in that aspect. If it'd been for me, I would have turned it into one of those endless series.

Chapter 45 [END]:
Stretch 045 [END]


akili's final comment:

This is the end of Ran and Keiko's living together.

It's gotten a lot longer than planned, but it's thanks to the readers' comments that I was able to draw 45 chapters. Thank you very much.

I'm planning on drawing more for the 4th volume than for the other volumes. There might even be a sequel. Please look forward to it.


Now that Stretch has finished, I'll be able to focus on Bonfire NEET. And once that's finished too, I'll make sure to pick up another interesting web manga. Look forward to it!

OPM files taken down

Hey, guys. Maybe some of you have already noticed that the OPM chapters in my Mediafile folder have been taken down. Since OPM was licensed by VIZ Media years ago, I suppose it was only a matter of time. It's why I quit translating OPM in November, 2013 in the first place. Now I'm just glad the other files in my Mediafile folder weren't taken down, or even worse, my account wasn't deleted. That means, you can still download the other manga. I guess I'll stick to my original rule of only translating doujins and more obscure web manga from now on.

Back when I started translating OPM, hardly anyone in the English speaking world knew about OPM, and my goal was to get as many people as possible to experience the awesomeness of the Caped Baldy. I think we reached that point a long time ago, and now with the anime adaptation, OPM is one of the most famous anime/manga franchises in the world. I count myself lucky that I was able to take part in that process. Thank you very much.

Please make sure to read Stretch, Bonfire NEET (I've just released a new chapter after months? A year?), and the Molester Man threads.

How I stalked some dude with an exposed nipple and stumbled upon the Zenithian Sword

Hey guys, great title for a manga, eh? This one is a Dragon Quest V doujinshi that was originally posted on Pixiv by Nikiichi Tobita (MONSTER X MONSTER), when he was still an amateur artist. In fact, you'll notice a few similarities to MONSTER X MONSTER. You could say, this manga = MONSTER X MONSTER - DQ V. It's a more or less free adaptation of the "How I stalked some dude with an exposed nipple and stumbled upon the Zenithian Swordwwww" thread that was started on 2ch by an anonymous poster with the ID YDmPhSO2. So yeah, he's the author, I suppose. If the title is too long for you, the Japanese also refer to it as Bonfire NEET (焚き火ニート).

Note: You should really play Dragon Quest V before you read this one (doesn't matter if it's the original SNES, or one of its remakes on DS and PS2). It's a great game, so you should have played it anyway. Also, the author made a few minor changes to the DQ V story to make the main protagonist fit in.

Enjoy!
