Bow Wow! -Two Dog Night- Color Pages+Prologue

Here is the first update for the Etsusa Bridge series, which is the second work by Ryohgo Narita of Baccano!, Durarara!!, and Vamp! fame. The series is comprised of four main books and a collection of short stories. Currently, a second short story collection is supposedly in the works. (Fans have been waiting since 2008. Thanks a lot, Durarara)

This series takes place in Japan's near-future, in the same 'verse as the rest of Narita's light novel series(minus Hariyama-san). There is almost no overlap between Etsusa Bridge and the other novels, but fellow slaves of the Naritaverse keen-eyed readers might notice a few references here and there--especially in later volumes.

As with my other series, I'm taking a localization-style approach to this translation. No honorifics, names in Western order, and as few translation notes as possible(see how miserably I fail at the last one).

I'll be posting a PDF and an epub at the end of every volume. I may or may not do a compilation like I did for Vamp!.

Gakuen Kino 5 - Prologue

This novel is, as usual, a work of fiction.

It has absolutely nothing to do with real events, truths, Kino’s Journey ~the Beautiful World~, or a certain high school baseball club. Really.

Vamp! I~V download

It's very late, but here's the download link for all currently released volumes of Vamp!. I've proofread/edited the books again, added the author's afterwords for every volume, and added illustration scans for volumes IV and V(don't expect much in the way of quality, though). Some name spellings have also been changed for the sake of accuracy, but their pronunciations remain the same as earlier releases.

All PDFs and epubs for Volumes I through V are in one zip file. Get it here.

EDIT(August 5): If the above link doesn't work, try this one.

-earlier PDFs and epubs have been taken down.
-a couple of color illustrations are missing from the Volume V scans, but that's because they're reused images with filters/effects slapped on top. I omitted those because they're redundant and color pages are annoying to scan.
-there's an extra illustration in the Volume V epub that wasn't in the original book; I put it there for the sake of formatting, but it's probably the illustration mentioned by Narita in the Volume V afterword.

Allison III(Part 2): A Train Named Conspiracy - Before the Prologue~b(PDF+epub)

That wraps up all four books of Allison. The sequel, Lillia and Treize, is six volumes long. I'll be starting that straight after Gakuen Kino 5. I hope you enjoyed the series!

(The database will be updated for this chapter once I begin working on Lillia and Treize.)

Allison III(Part 2): A Train Named Conspiracy - Chapter 9

Just one more update before the Allison books are finished. Up next will be a baseball-filled volume of Gakuen Kino, followed by Allison's sequel--Lillia and Treize.

The next update will also include a pdf and a epub.

Allison III(Part 2): A Train Named Conspiracy - Chapter 7

Thanks for waiting. I'm finally back in Canada and settled in nicely at home. Here's the next chapter of Allison.

Incidentally, I finished working on the rest of the volume over the past few days, but I wanted to look over it again before I posted it. Allison will be coming to a close in the next few weeks.
