    Can you consider translating more of Furuya Minoru mangas? It’s a shame that he is too underrated
    And thank you again.

    I wholeheartedly agree with your comment on the last page of Himizu. I’ve asked other groups to do this series (to no avail, obviously) because I love the faces the characters make and the content on the series. It seemed like I was the only person pushing for somebody to pick the series up. I enjoy it much more than the typical types of faces with tiny mouths and huge eyes. The first work of Furuya Minoru’s I read was Boku to Issho, which was particularly funny. After that, I’ve made it a point to read all his other works, although I couldn’t much get get into Ping Pong Club, and they were all pretty good. I really enjoy his “everyone is ugly” art style, as well. I’m really glad you guys decided to pick this series up. I was very irritated that somebody would drop such a great series half-way through. Well, so long as you guys decide to see this series to the end, you have my support. 🙂 Thanks a bunch for the release.

    Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. We are a small team of people, working on a bunch of series all at once, while we have real life jobs. Karate is a a little more complicated, so there are 1 translator, 1 cleaner/redrawer, 1 typesetter and 1 quality checker, all handling the project, all vital to the project, all key members of the group (well, you CAN find someone else to handle the typesetting, but that’s more time out of the others). Himizu only has two people, but it’s a whole lot easier.
    When and more importantly, IF we pick up any other Furuya Minoru series will be decided AFTER we finish Himizu. And… You know, if we even have a translator for said series in the first place… >_>

    Oh, I’m really sorry, I didn’t mean to put pressure on you or anything, I just suggested because I noticed that, there are many people who will like more of Furuyu Minoru manga, and thought you might find it interesting to work on his other manga, it was just a suggestion not a demand at all, sorry for the misunderstanding, me, and i’m sure, all of the readers are thankful that you are finishing Himizu, and also, we appreciate your efforts on working on KSKM, we can’t thank you enough. Please keep it up and good luck (^0^)b

    I understand that Furuya Minoru fans might want more of his stuff in the future and we”ll see what happens in half a year or more or less.
    I don’t think my reply was too strong, but regardless, I apologize if you thought it was. But, at the same time, people should understand that there’s no telling as to what tomorrow holds for any of us, let alone a few weeks or months. It only takes one thing to screw up all your plans.

    Oh! I didn’t mean that, haha, sorry again lol.
    And yes, I completely understand that, and we appreciate what all of you are doing for the fans, and that was just me suggesting, while knowing about your circumstances, and of course you don’t have to take our suggestions, it’s all up to you guys, and we are thankful for whatever you present to us :3

    Much respect & cheers~ 😀

    Yeah, as CrazyHorse said, we are short of people who can work on the projects. But it will be interesting to scanlate Furuya’s other works. His mangas are different to others. So original and unique.

    As for the Ping Pong Club. Some people might say all those sick, dirty jokes are going too far. (like “Hamichin serve”… LOL), but the later chapters includes more good taste humor and his random thoughts told in good storytelling. IMO, PIng Pong Club is his best manga.
