Return of the Imoutos!

OOSY_v02_CoverYeah, you're not hallucinating. Just as scheduled and just as promised, Omae wo comes back!

Now, what are those sly imoutos planning now... evil imoutos. Damn, I'm envious. Though I dare say I'd fall immediately if it was me... let's just say Tomomi is too tremendously... packed. Other imoutos of course have their own good parts, and are no inferior to Tomomi... but I'm mentioning her because of the chapter's contents.

Also, I'm in the process of lookin' for a new series to translate. Mind, that I won't pick up translations after others, I'm not interested in continuing what others give up on. Well, just look forward to it, I've got just one series I'm interest in now, but there's still lots of time until I decide.

PS: If the series suggestions start to annoy me, I'll indiscriminately delete them posts.

PS2: I forgot, but I did prepare a video of making the Toutobi's coloured illustration from OSO volume 5. (Bareus suggested I could, and since it didn't require much extra work...). One thing though, the final version is slightly different from what you see in the vid (I tweaked colours like 25 times after I finished recording so it's slightly different).

      There's at least a few interesting one's there, though I don't think Maou anoko is an action series :P.

    I've been waiting for this for months. Haven't read any of volume 2 that was already translated because I'd be stuck with a bigger cliffhanger than if I had read it. I actually managed to take some Japanese classes but it's not enough to actually read any of the novels I bought.

    Also, nice coloring, do you have any suggestions for how I could learn to color like that? I've tried before but I could never seem to get the hang of it. Mostly video explanations as well as a few text based ones but I probably don't have the sense for it. (no pun intended)

    And as for suggestion... I have none. I quite like your taste as far as what you've already picked up so I doubt I can suggest anything you can't find yourself or have already considered.

      For colouring... ugh, I can't give you any tips. I'm one of those people who do stuff intuitively so there's no set "methodology". I guess, practice? That'd be it.

      Well, you have to learn what each tool does, what layer blends do and know how to use all blending options. That's the basics, after that it's up to your creativity. Also, retain everything you do on a separate layer (as you can see me doing in the vid). Multiple layers with different colours and blends give different effects.

    Thnx for the chapter

    For a series suggestion, how about the series which you had on your site previously, Vanquish Overlord

    Was that adobe photoshop or illustrator? And next time put what songs are playing please :3

    1. krytykkrytyk Post author

      Photoshop, you can't do this in illustrator. It works differently.

      PS: added song names under the vid.

    First thank you for all of your translations. I read a good chunk of them. If your taking suggestions I have a couple that might interest you.
    Ore ga Heroine o Tasukesugite Sekai ga Little Mokushiroku!?" I loved the manga and it ended abruptly. I tried to see if another group picked it up as mangaupdates lists it as having a single release of the prologue but I can find nothing about i. Also the group is a machine translation group. So I'm not really sure if it would be considered "others had given up on" when they didn't even start it.

    Tokage no Ou: Manga was a huge tease for the LN. Can't find anywhere anyone else tried translating it.
    And last, since you seem into "tremendously... packed" there's always Ochitekita Ryuuou to Horobiyuku Majo no Kuni.
    Sorry to bug you with the suggestions. Again love what you're doing and thanks again for doing it.

    Thanks for the chapter, Krytyk.

    As for suggestion, how about "魔装学園H×H" or "アルティメット・アンチヒーロー"? Both seems very nice to me.

    PS: Just hoping you won't pick another VRMMO... :(

  8. nero12

    wait you are taking suggestions?!? Then I suggest Kuro no Hiera Glaphicos!. That LN deserves a translation. Definitely worth it. You should check it out even if you don't translate it. Unless you haven't read it already that is....

    Also thanks for the top quality translations as usual!!

    Nobunaga ni Manabe! Ore no Isekai Ikinokori Life
    I think the premise is pretty interesting where a Sengoku history buff gets a chance to go to another world when he dies at an incorrect time so he chooses to go to a historic medieval sword and magic setting with a couple low level cheats as compared to the likes of Arifureta, Mushoku Tensei, and others. There, he replaces the untalented first prince at his moment of death to fix the country with the prince's blessing. (

    異世界を救った勇者は普通の高校生には戻れない! 『とりあえず、男だとバレると世界がヤバいらしい』(
    Long story short, Isamu's 'vessel' was too powerful to be brought back to his own world, so the the Goddess had to make him a new one. She cheerfully crafted a cute girl... and totally forgot that Isamu was a boy. So she tried to hastily make some fixes but it was a tad too late... Isamu's new vessel turns into an 'Otoko No Ko' (aka Trap), except his presence was recognized a 'Female' in his world. Thus, bad things happen if you try to correct reality and state that he's a boy. Isamu can't let the secret get out. Now he must deal with his younger-sister, the Reincarnated Demon King, his perverted best-friend, and so on!

    I'd like to recommend these two . The former for most likely interesting political shenanigans (hopefully) and the latter for comedy.

    Hi, thanks for translating OSO, Anti-Magic and Omae wo.
    I'd like to recommend Chronicle Legion or Shiro no Koukoku Monogatari.

  11. Fakar

    I just finished reading Only sense a couple of days ago and loved it so thank you for the Tl:s
    if youre taking sugestions then how about Chihou Kishi Hans no Junan ( 地方騎士ハンスの受難)?
    while the recently started manga has been picked up as far as i can tell no one is translating the LN or the WN.

  12. pancakes4ever

    Eeehhh... You were open for project suggestions? If so, i would love to see u translate Knights and Magic. Although it was given up, I remember Skyethewood saying he gave up on it coz of slow chinese version releases.

      What part of the post did "won't pick up after others" did you not comprehend?:)

      1. Otto.Tre-K

        Thank you Krytyk for picking up Omae Wo once again!

        Also, don't tease us so badly, you meanie! Now I'll be wondering for who knows how long which series you're gonna pick up instead of studying for my exams, *sob!*.

        Jokes aside, I've appreciated every single series you've picked up so far,so I'm quite confident I won't be disappointed whatever you choose (Not that it would change anything even if I was *LOL*).

        Keep up the good work!

        1. krytykkrytyk Post author

          I didn't really "pick it up once again" because I never dropped it, but it did come back after a break :).

    1. The one typing this

      Lol, I second that, thanks for this chapter. It´s personally one of my favorite novels, and the videos are fun to watch :D
