Well, that’s a good question. Something I’ve been asking myself seeing as the next volume keeps getting bloody delayed. So far there’s been 36 chapters released, the last one released back in early February this year. That chapter marked the end of “part 1″ of the story and I doubt there’ll be anymore anytime soon as I don’t think the sales were any good.
So your probably wondering about the chapters that have been released so far and why they haven’t been translated. That’s for two reasons. There isn’t any raws for them on the internet and the fourth volume kept getting delayed multiple times. That’s leaves us with a few options, buy the digital version of the magazine or just wait for whenever the next volume comes out. FYI I’ve been waiting over year for it but apparently it’s sometime in September.
Also I did ask for help buying the magazine way back when I released Chapter 27 over a year ago but as usual the manga community are a bunch of penny pinchers who can’t even be bothered to support the comics they claim so dearly to love. Most of you probably don’t even buy comics, just leeches that suck publishers and authors dry. So you’ve only yourselves to blame as I can’t foot the bill for a dozen magazines considering I have trouble getting by as it is these days. So the only option is to wait until the next volume comes out if at all.
Seems Pumpkin Night will be back in time for Halloween as the series has been transferred over to MangaLine. They’ve released the first two chapters through their reader wherein it’ll be updated once a week, putting chapter 15 around Halloween time. This is great news though it’s still taken forever to get to this point considering it’s been over a year since chapter 14 came out.
Masaya Hokazono also said on his twitter that he’s got four volumes planned so hopefully that means much more chapters. Though one’s got to wonder if his split from takeshobo/webcomicgamma is what caused the series to go on haitus as I don’t think anybody actually got a proper answer considering even the artist
Taniguchi Seima had no idea what was going on.
Seems Pumpkin Night isn’t dead after all, Masaya Hokazono has apparently written 4 volumes according to one of his tweets. I’m glad he’s working on it again after he got better from whatever was making him sick. There’ll also be an illustration volume of some sort later in Halloween so there’s that to look forward to as well.
Didn’t even notice this on Twitter until someone else told me. So at least we know that it’ll be coming out sometime in the future, hopefully it won’t be too long until we had another chapter since the last one last year.
Seems that the powers that be have delayed the next volume of Killing Morph once again, bringing the total wait for the next volume to almost a year from last years volume 3 release. Even a few Japanese sellers have removed listings from their sites for some reason. Previously it was meant to this month or next month, though listings have been removed for the past few weeks much to our dismay. Meh.
Combined with the fact that raws of Young Champion stopped being uploaded from Japan (uploader got nuked) last year there’s near enough no way to get raws. Sigh. Hopefully there isn’t more months to wait but that seems most likely at this point.
Seeing as Nokuto Koike has started work on Killing Morph once again, he’s also begun work on a new horror series. Here’s a rundown of the story:
Satsuki, a boy high school boy and his childhood friend are riding in an underground train until it suddenly stops. Upon closer inspection the denizens of the train discover a mysterious beast! Panic sets in as the passengers struggle to survive the beast and escape to the surface.
The first chapter isn’t really much so far but hopefully it’ll turn into something worthwhile in the future. You can read it online here, also if anyone can rip it or knows how to then please let me know.
Hokazono Masaya has been hard at work on his new Freak Island spinoff which seems to be something like grimm’s fairy tales, from his Twitter at least that’s the impression he gives. As you may have noticed characters such as Marie and Kaoru are present though at the moment it’s unknown what shape or form their characters will take in this new manga as now there are many children. Hmm…I’m thinking Children of the corn or some kind of wicker man thing with the masks going on. Apparently he’s finished work on the second chapter of this manga though he hasn’t given an indication on what magazine if any at all it will be published in.
Hopefully some more news of this will come out in the future considering previously he had stated that the final draft for Freak Island was finished over a month ago.
