Despair Works

For what is life BUT despair?

Koe de Oshigoto! Chapter 14

Koe de Oshigoto! Chapter 14

Perhaps some of you have noticed that our rotating quotations at the top of the page has changed. We’ve added a few more witty remarks, some pertaining to the addition of Literature Girl to our scanlation lineup, some more randomness, et cetera. One of the additions is the phrase “never make promises.”

So we didn’t get the chapter out before August. But we did get it out before August ended! Less than a month late. I sincerely apologize for the delay. Summer creeps up on us and we simply are too busy… doing other stuff. But now that Chapter 14’s out, all’s well that ends well. So no more promises from now on, things will be out when they’re out.

We do have Chapter 15 already, translation’s currently in progress. Just sit tight, everyone; we’ll have it out befor—- never mind that. In all seriousness though, now that summer’s over, we’re probably doing… more legitimate things that don’t involve any of the activities Jiu mentioned in his previous post. Which means we have more time to look after the needs of our readers? Probably not.

In addition, thanks to the commenter who posted the news announcing YMT’s return to syndication. We’re excited to hear that!

Anyways, pardon the delay once again, and please, enjoy this newest chapter.

In Moe We Go,

PS: Another reason why this chapter took so long to do was because I couldn’t help but feel absolutely retarded when translating it. Afterwards, Jiu could not stop facepalming, so we gave it off to Shadowknight, who couldn’t stop laughing. You’ll see why.

*link fixed (again), chapter reuploaded with page 11.

    Thanks for the release, and keep up the good work.

    Incidentally, has anyone tried reading the QR Codes included in the chapter? They talk about it in the last page too. In case you’re wondering, I mean these:

    QR on Fumika’s line
    QR on Kanna’s line

    I tried passing the QR codes through but it didn’t recognize it as a QR code. I think the QR codes in the edited version have too low resolution. Are the raws scanned at a higher resolution? Maybe we could use those.

    I used the raw scans at MangaHelpers and I was able to read the QR codes! They look like they were at the same resolution, so it must have been something else. But whatever it problem was, the important thing is that the raws worked.

    There are QR codes on page 21, 23, and 24, and they decode to,, and Actually, I was only able to read the QR codes on two of the pages, but I was able to use my mighty brain to deduce the third URL. The URLs in turn point to mp3 files of the speech balloons.
