    Teras posted it in the front page. I, myself, have yet to read it.

    What do YOU think, Claudia?

      Just a little quibble. First chapter, the gun that Jinpachi uses is an M 14, not M 17

      n case it is mentioned later, the gun used by Yumika is the MP 7

      therwise, great work.

        Oh who cares about the technicalities of each gun? Pull the trigger and someone dies.

          Ibizen Thoth, I am the tl on the project. You are quite right, I just rechecked the raw and it is also recorded as an M14 there, I transcribed that incorrectly. I apologize for the error. It will be corrected.
          I hope you enjoy future releases, there should be no more technical errors... I hope.

            True for the most part, but if I can do anything to improve the scan's quality with additional input, I would like to think that I would try. It's a good way to put my useless knowledge of firearms to use.

                Just for people who were following this series and interested in the background, the manga is a serialization that covered the first 2 novels by Kukami Makoto. There are 11 volumes of the novels and, due to their success, other than the manga, a set of 4 drama CDs was also made. No plans for an anime that I have heard of though.

                As you can imagine, the story will cover a lot of the points we didn't here too much about, Byoudouin Shuuichi's story, more young guns, the phoenix syndicate and after a certain point, the plot actually takes them international. In fact, the novels actually end in Russia, not in Japan.

                I haven't read the novels, just given them a brief glance... So I can't actually give any details... But I do hope that someone considers translating them at some point, since they are really an amazing piece of work. I suppose we will see what happens.

                  Two out of eleven...? I so love this series too. There's always hope for novel translations, I guess. I hate when stories don't get finished properly, still drives me nuts the way denpa teki na kanojo was left - they did two out of three parts and just left it.

                    Hopefully an anime in the future.
