Now this has been something I’ve wanted to do for ages but sadly couldn’t get a physical copy, so I settled for the scans I found online. Anyhow if your familiar with the artstyle you’ll notice that once again it is Chang Sheng’s from Oldman fame. This particular short story comes from the collection of the same name, wherein a bunch of authors published their stories for some event that I can’t remember. Chang Sheng’s story features an astronaut taking part in humanities first hyperspace flight test, naturally an anomaly a happens and the main character is flung to an unknown planet where he sees the Mona Lisa and then wakes up on an earth that is not his own.
What is the connection between him and the Mona Lisa? And will he ever see his wife or daughter again? It’s a great read, you won’t be disappointed.
Also I might be interested in doing some other Chang Sheng works though since there only way to get them is to more or less buy them I’d need support getting them since I’m practically broke at the moment.
Didn’t think we’d have another chapter so soon, props to the author. Anyway this time the story shifts to Kakeru and Pops for the first half as we find out what was happening to them during the poolside activities.
Sorry I had to. As for our lady friend whose name I’ve forgot, she makes a quick escape due to the dude bro trying to save his other dude bro which is nice to see. Also I like how the executioner is able to stop his swing in an instant, well he probably isn’t human anyway but it’s still cool.
Translation wise I was tempted to trade the V-word with blood suckers as I didn’t really want to type the word Vampire in the script though I decided against it for obvious reasons. It sounds retarded as hell.
Seeing as the third volume actually came out I thought I’d make a compile of all available chapters as per usual. Hopefully sooner of later the author will actually bother to release the next chapter or something else as I’m rather interested on working on another piece of his work.
Here is all the Freak Island/Kichikujima chapters in English at the moment, translated by Usarei Translations (1-21) and myself (22-45). I took the liberty of compressing the original chapters done by Usarei as they were far over blown in size for some reason. They are far smaller in comparison now thankfully.
Now if your wondering why there hasn’t been a release of Freak Island in the last few months that’s because the next volume or even chapter for that matter hasn’t been released and whenever that will be the case is up in the air at this point as Masaya Hokazono is working on spin off of some sorts.
It’s been a while but finally the second volume is here! Well, the first chapter of it. I can’t believe it’s been just under a year since the first volume came out, like wtf was taking so long? Anyway the story picks up once again with our plucky Sasamoto trying to win over Haji. Also, the bit at the start should give some hints on what Haji actually is.
