Sorry for taking 3125 years!
Miang Miang, Miang Miang, Ni Hao Minag!
3125 years is still better than waiting 3126 years.
Many thanks as always for your hard work.
THANK GOD IT'S STILL ALIVE! <3
thank god we're still alive. <3
Thanks a lot ~ \(^_^)/
So uh, who wants to help detective me some ch25+ raws(jp)?
What volume is 25+ in?
Yay, thanks for the chapter. Unfortunately, Share and jcafe24 only have the volume raws up to v4.
I don't think the manga goes beyond vol. 4 as of right now.
Thank you so much, it sure was a long wait, but appreciate it nevertheless!
Woohoo! Ch24! Thanks so much! Dead hard drive... I think I know how you feel.
Huahhh! Thank u so much!! I'm always waiting for this manga. :)
Awesome!! Thank you for the update. Loving this manga
Thanks Mezzy and Miangs. ; -;
Mez get on irc you fag ;_;
Wow, that's some awesome scenery porn. Amano really outdid herself here. Poor Akane though, having to go back with a broken heart. Love hurts!
Thank you as always
Oh wow. Update. Thank you so much. QAQ
Huzzaaa~aah! It's ALIVE! ;_;Thank you so much for this release :D
I was check this blog every days till 2 weeks ago.. thank you, for ch 24..
This torrent contains chapters 25 + 26. I haven't downloaded 26 yet but 25 looks cleanly scanned and Japanese. Not that I know completely the difference between Chinese + Japanese off hand so I might be wrong. (The link looks crazy but should work)http://torentilo.com/downloadtorrent/6842902/%E5%AE%8C%E6%95%B4%E6%BC%AB%E7%94%BB%5Bcomic%5D%5B%E5%A4%A9%E9%87%8E%E3%81%93%E3%81%9A%E3%81%88%5D%5B%E3%81%82%E3%81%BE%E3%82%93%E3%81%A1%E3%82%85%EF%BC%81%EF%BC%8F%E6%B5%B7%E4%B9%8B%E5%B0%91%E5%A5%B3%5D%5BAQUA%E5%B7%A5%E4%BD%9C%E5%AE%A4%5D%5BBIG5%5DOK, I've done all I could...the rest is in your hands. *flies off into the night*
That's the chinese scan group ;_;
Ah, apologies!! Sorry for getting your hopes up. .__.I'ma keep looking to make up for it.
Yup, those are indeed Chinese. That's a bummer, since I was thinking of having a stab at a chapter myself. I need to practice my Japanese, see.
I couldn't find them anywhere. I don't think they exist on the internet! I guess the next best hope is finding a transcript of the chapter in Japaneese...
>>Chink scansA wild GrimaH appears!I'll drop by on IRC this weekend to see whether I can help.
Thank you so much for scanlating this!
Thanks for translating! :)
I have to say, thank you all for allowing us to read Amanchu and Aria (I was/am watching The Origination today so yeah... I've got one of those moods that series instills in you) and I'm very grateful that you are continuing with Amanchu (I was wondering what happened for the longest time). Aria had a major impact on my life due to the message it brought with it. I wouldn't have been able to keep my chin up if you all hadn't made it available. Thanks.
We're the ones who should be thankful, you guys are so nice and patient. Hopefully we'll be able to find raws soon so you guys won't need to wait another 6 months!And Amano's work has had the same impact on us, so we're not stopping no matter what.
buddy..,will you translate Monthly Undine...???thanks...does anyone know about Amano sensei latest news..??
This site lives?!
its still alive,oh my god im fuckin happy ahh im gonna cry :')
Thanks for another chapter. Good job.
Alternate ARIA soundtrack?www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jz6dptyF9jk
Force them to surrender the RAW! http://aqua.5d6d.net/
Man, I need to catch up...
P.. P- Parmsy! ;_;
Chinese scan for Chapter 27 is out and they add lots of their logo into each page to prevent others leeching them. Humbug :/
Which issue of "Monthly Undine" have you been working on?
The first one. It is not exactly being worked on, as it needs a TL to finish the rest of it.
Which parts still need to be translated? :3
Probably 50-60% of it left.
Cosplay seen at Comiket 82 this August.
I think that is NOT Aria. Notice the subtle differences.
It's from Milky Holmes.
The Honda-sponsored "One Off" motor-scooter themed OVA was a splendid idea by Satojun! I wonder why ARIA was not made the same way? With a heap of sponsorship money thrown at them, more episodes could have been made and with more fluent, detailed graphics.In exchange for the buck, Aika-chan would regularly proclaim on screen that Himeya has the best Tramontin gondolas, the only brand worthy of a heiress. Meanwhile Alice + Akari receive "budget" Bonaldo and Dai Rossi gondolas from their companies. Of course, Aria and Orange Planet gondolas would be prominently shown to need unexpected drydock repairs every third episode and go to the scrapyard as their maker leaves business, etc.Furthermore, Alicia should stop making bento and the girls rather go to Mconalds, big product endorsement money for the animation studio.
Is someone writing ARIA light novels without even knowing about it?"The gondola is my instrument. She doesn't make music like a guitar or a cello, but she will literally take you places. I can get a couple on my gondola, row out on the water, and help them escape their problems for a time. Then, with the gentle waves lapping against the side of her hull, I can point the boat towards the setting sun or a rising moon, and if I sing just the right song, in just the right way, I can speak to their hearts and maybe even provide them with a memory that they will cherish forever. I am a gondolier, and the gondola is my instrument."
Was having a rough morning til I realized I could be reading amanchu on my phone. Thanks for the continued effort, here's hoping you get some clean raws.oh, and hi basaka
Hello,If anybody here is from Hungary, you may learn that a real venetian gondola is supposed to arrive at Budapest on Tuesday. It is being rowed down the Danube (Duna) river by a venetian senior. He left Vienna on Thursday. Here is a news article.Kind regards: Tamas Feher from Hungary.
> "A real venetian gondola is supposed to arrive at Budapest on Tuesday. It is being rowed down the Danube (Duna) river by a venetian senior."The gondolier mistook the ship-lifting lock and turned into the turbine inlet of the Gabcikovo-Nagymaros hydro-electric dam on Saturday, halfway into the Danube trip. Was nearly sucked in and saved by slovak firefighters after several hours' effort.One must be glad planet Aqua has only shipping locks, not Hoover Dams, else ARIA would be over in two navigations with Akari ending up as minced meat... Kaplan turbines are neither steki or sugoi nor kiree but maybe shigi. You can only see their interiors once and then its game over.
Vittorio Orio, the venetian senior on expedition has arrived in his black gondola at Budapest, Hungary where he was greeted by some dignitaries opposite the vast building of Parliament.I felt a bit like watching Alice's reception at the Hill, real life, front seat also, literally. Except there was no canzone this time, for which our ears are probably most greatful. (HSK!)
Hello, Amanchu! tankobon vol. 5 is now available and Comic Blade Mag 2012/11 also has an Amanchu cover.Furthermore, the monthly Comic Blade Mag (with Amanchu in it) is now available for online puchase as an Apple / Android e-book. That could solve the issue of supplying non-defaced, non-chinese raws.
Raws for vol.5 would be helpful if anyone can find some. But wouldn't page/image size for an android e-book be quite small? What is the cost for it anyway?
Hello,The Amanchu! 5 booklet do not ship until October 10th, according to MAG's official website.In fact there will be two 600yen booklets, one for Amanchu! volume 5 and another, a special called "Mamanchu!" that appears to have chibi-Amanchu (chibi-Aria?) themed drawings about topics related to parenting an infant. It's outer cover is a parody of the Amanchu volume 1 cover graphics.I have no tablet or e-book reader, so I cannot comment on the tech and cost aspects of online editions.
Monthly Comic Blade 2012/11 has Amanchu cover sheet.What's that, Pikari meets Caith Sith?
MAG Garden Comic Blade's blog entry on the new Amanchu booklets with some thumbnails for posters.
Hello,Could someone please translate the short Mamanchu! comment here? Appears to be a little spoiler, but neither Google nor Babelfish machine translators make much sense of that. Thanks!
*sigh*I wish that the next chapter will be out. What is Amano sensei taking so long?Her maternity leave already over, right?
There are a few chapters out. The problem right now is we don't have any raws!
> The problem right now is we don't have any raws!More precisely, there is no known japanese raw scan and nobody is willing to use those watermarked chinese scanlations as "pseudo-raws" to start the english scanlation. Regrettably, nobody has been able to find out where those chinese scanlators get their japanese raws.The options are:1., Track down those chinese scanlators and give them the chinese water torture, until they divulge the site of their hidden raw cache. (preferred method)2., Someone order the Amacnhu! volume 4 and 5 tankobons straight from Japan. They booklets are cheap, but shipping by proxy is a pain and costs a whole lot.3., Buy the tankobons online in e-book format, but nobody knows if they are full resolution or already dowsized for reading on 5-6" e-ink screens (latter is no good).4. Keep waiting until japanese raw scans turn up somewhere on the net or just wait until Amanchu! gets animated and do the sub.
Do an interest check for donations to buy the raws.(I will probably give $15)How much do the paper and e-book cost anyways?
> How much do the paper and e-book cost anyways?This website appears to be affordable for Amanchu volume 5.The paperback book itself is 7 USD or 5.5 euros, but shipping via registered air mail delivery may add a further 15-20 euros to the total cost.
This guy is supposed to be the chinese Amanchu raw supplier: firehooharia at yahoo dot com dot hk / martinkwok at hotmail dot comWas in the University of Hong Kong on a full english curriculum.
[url=http://rawscans.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=7748&start=10]There seems to be a link for all the volumes till now here.[/url]I see that they have volume 05, as well.....
We love you anon.Mez get in #acs plox
Japanese message: Ganbatte, kudosai!In english: The ACS translator posse is unlucky! They will now have to work a 48-hour, unpaid, weekend overtime shift.
Good luck with work and all! You're welcome. ^^ Hope it helps!!

Umm, not sure what you want me to do with this? I obviously can't release another groups stuff. Can you contact me on msn or query me on irc or something.
Could someone please translate the short Mamanchu!?
didnt see any acs credits here,who's the one who translate it? http://www.mangahere.com/manga/amanchu/v02/c025/
It's not by us. An ex-tl from a long time ago decided to randomly pick it up. Trying to get some more details but I don't really want to "compete" with other groups or whatever, in the end the only thing that matters for readers is its getting done, so if he wants to do it then we'll give up on it - as I don't see the point in doing it twice. Wish he'd discuss it with me about it first though, as I feel it's common courtesy since I've been working on this for so many years..
meh,im a stalker for 2 years here,always waiting for your next update till its done,do your best :)
I'm sorry, but you'll have to wait a just a little longer for the chapters - Exam season is upon me, alas.I'm more than happy to entertain you with flowering control in arabidopsis, auxin signaling or science commercialization theories in the meanwhile though.
Here's another source for raws I've just found:http://rawcs.blogspot.com/2011/09/amanchu-update-volume-3.html?utm_source=BP_recent
I just read chapter 25 at Mangafox. Did you guys do that one? It seems to be fairly nicely done in any case. It's also extremely creepy and to me it feels completely out of place compared to the rest, which is a lot more "normal".
Yeah, I was just about to ask about that too. I was wondering about who scanlated it, but there isn't a credits page.
Chapter 26 has been uploaded to Mangafox, and it turns out that chapter 25 and this one have been scanlated by Teatime Scans.
finished reading the chapter 26 too,wow they're fast
pretty awesome that Amano-sensei knows Rocky Balboa lol,Teatime also said that they already finished chapter 27 http://www.mangahere.com/manga/amanchu/v02/c026/28.html
Chapter 27 just came out today. It was really heartwarming. Amano-sensei <3
chapter 28 came out yesterday,holycow so fast o_o
And now 29 is up as well. Katori-sensei surely has some useful skills!
> chapter 28 came out yesterdayAlice was titled "La nuova stella" on the Mensile Undine cover and technically speaking the Sun is also a star. Yet somehow I find that effect jarring.
Wait, if you guys are not the ones who scanlated those chapters....then does this mean those chapters cannot be downloaded on this site? Damn
HelloA bunch of early ARIA character colour designs by Amano-sensei. I have not seen these yet.
Hello,Can you confirm if the entire AQUA-ARIA manga saga has already been scanlated to english? (Except maybe the lenghty Chapter 10 special at the end of AQUA volume 2.)Thanks in advance.
Hello,A little belated Xmas gift a.k.a. we drive you, Kouhai-chan!Everybody Have a Happy New Year!
When I was in Kyoto, I saw a car like that drive through the streets. Maybe it's the same one?
Hello,I've just realized that Junichi Sato, the director of ARIA anime has an active Twitter account. He still appears to be interested in the topic of ARIA and Venice and made dozens of related twits, including some as recent as December 2012. He appears to answer fan's questions sometimes, including doujin fanfic.I don't have a command of japanese, but I've have done a Google search for "ARIA" mentions in his Twitter feed and collected those texts in a Word document, if anyone wishes to check if there is anything interesting in them. Open password is: sartoriusI also wonder if we could compile some most interesting questions, translate them to japanese and post them over Twitter and maybe Mr. Sato would answer?Sincerely: Tamas Feher from Hungary.
Do you guys (ACS) still have an IRC channel?
According to the Product of Wasted Time blog, the latest monthly Amanchu chapter has tentacles. That just sucks...
tentacle in chapter 33! http://bigt1987.blogspot.fr/2013/01/amanchu-33.html
lol...btw, does anyone know what is Erino-san doing now..??we don't have any news from her since two years ago..
According to the japanese language Wikipedia, Erino Hazuki's voice may be featured in future episodes of the currently airing "Sasamisan at Ganbaranai" hikikomori anime, in the role of someone called "Mission-chan". Maybe she had a baby after Gosick and that was why she went on hiatus from 2011 to early 2013?
oh...,is that so..thanks..^_^at least she's save from the earthquake
Hello,This is ARIA Naver, looks like some kind of a game for the Android platform and supposed to be free. Don't know any specifics about it, as I do not have a smartphone.
Hello,Can somebody please check if this scan is from a yet-unknown Amanchu! chapter (possibly the 2013 february chapter)?If this is indeed a new page, then someone, who has command of the japanese language, could try to ask around in this webforum, as they seem to have new Amanchu and maybe would provide raws?Bye, Tamas Feher from Hungary.
Hello,Product of Wasted Time blog now has Amanchu chapter 34 reviewed. Ai falls down the stairs and she weighs only 5 kilos.
Hello,Found the Entire Comic Blade magazine raw scan (137MB large) with Amanchu! nav. 35 also inside. Check the folder sized 5,518,062 bytes inside. The uploaded.net link worked for me, albeit at slow free DL speeds, taking like 35 minutes to complete.http://speedy.sh/zc5tp/Gekkan-Comic-Blade-2013-03-Complete.rarhttp://uploaded.net/file/qgn9rkqj/Gekkan_Comic_Blade_2013-03_Complete.rarhttp://ryushare.com/98f0cd2699b/Gekkan_Comic_Blade_2013-03_Complete.rarhttp://bitshare.com/files/zpgb79zn/Gekkan_Comic_Blade_2013-03_Complete.rar.htmlhttp://rapidgator.net/file/77358342/Gekkan_Comic_Blade_2013-03_Complete.rar.htmlThe scans are not very high quality. BTW, Product of Wasted blog time was right with their prediction of the Peter Pan connection!
It seems the ARIA Naver app is just a collection of famous quotes from ARIA...
Hey, is still site still alive? There hasn't been an update in ages.
though theres no update and probably dead,some how i still love to open this site once or twice a month :)
Hi, are any of your group members willing to help ours out (seeing as you guys aren't really active anymore.) Here's the info: http://forums.mangafox.me/threads/452245-Kappa-Scans-is-Recruiting!Please email me if you want to join our cause;email@example.com
Hello,Today the Comic Blade Mag 2013/05 issue has become fully available for download at RAWXT, with the new Amanchu! chapter 36 (or 37?) inside it. The girls are back to scuba diving activity, but the scanned images are LQ. Tea-Time Scans is waiting for a HQ or MQ tankobon raw, before starting the scanlation project.
An ARIA gondola doujin game is now officially available for download for free from the creator's website. The game has every menu and settings in japanese only, however.
ASIMO Sachou is a little weird.
Thanks to the anon who posted about the gondola game! I tried it, and though I didn't get it at first - you accelerate by pressing I and decelerate using O - when I did it was a lot of fun.The latest chapter - the one included in the download another (?) anon linked above - is chapter 37, for anybody who was wondering. It's about them getting the dry suits they ordered in chapter 31 (according to Product of Wasted Time).Also, this is a bit late, but volume 6 is scheduled for May 10th. There's also a limited-edition version with an alternate cover that comes with Hikari and Futaba rubber coasters available on Amazon.
Amanchu volume 6 preview has been uploaded to the publisher's blog.
Amanchu nav37 raws are now available. In it, the club does a full chapter of diving, wearing some futuristic-looking (probably invented?) gear.
