I know this is a dead thread, but I can't help but think that the infrequency of the scans has a ton to do with the lack of interest. I would love for CR to pick this up and give us access to the 100+ chapters that are out but untranslated...

The scans are always out of schedule, so it's not consistent. It used to be, then it stopped...

I looked for a way to email a suggestion to CR about it but I couldn't find anything. I'm really into this series and I would love for it to grow in western markets through legitimate sources of publishing. It's heartbreaking that no one has licensed it yet.

This may be my favorite non-baseball sports manga. I really love the characters and the attention to detail in the story. Plus, Nat-chan is one of the finest heroines around! (She won Shounen Weekly's "Magazine Heroines at the Beach" competition last year, though Urara totally should win that every time...)

You can suggest it on the premium members forums here.


Glad that Yen Press is licensing Yowapeda and they also are simulpubing a new manga called "Ninja Soccer" (you can preview it on Yen Press' tumblr here). Seems like it's going to be like Prince of Tennis, a sports manga but with exaggerated moves.

Really wish Viz would license Haikyuu!! and Kodansha would put Baby Steps and Diamond no Ace on CR, or even license for graphic novels. But, at least one publisher is getting into sports manga again.

Chapter 249

I know the scanlations are off, but I just have to discuss this series because it deserves more hype!

We transition over to Natsu's match and get her monologue and development for her motivation, which I found relatable because my parents always support me as well! We also get to see Aki's match and her development as well and it seems she might be able to turn the tide because of it, so that'll be interesting to see. Finally, we see Ei-chan's match Kanda progressing and it seems Kanda is going all in with this set, so I wonder how Ei-chan will handle this?! I am looking forward to the next chapter!
