In case you haven’t heard, MangaTraders accounts have been compromised, and in addition, AniDB, MyAnimeList, and Baka-Updates also supposedly compromised. If you use an account on any of these sites, consider changing your passwords.
Also, here is the second-to-last chapter of this volume. This is the chapter that the initial OVA was based on, and plus, we get to see Lady Koto again.
Actually, we don’t have Kyousougiga c6 available right now. That’s because we don’t have a dedicated translator for this series. If you want to see this or the second wave of the Watamote Anthology scanlated, please head over to our recruitment page. We are looking for 2-3 Translators and a couple of redrawers. It’s okay if you’re new or bad, we’ll teach you what we know.
Okay, so Kyousougiga is sort of hard to understand, and with a web OVA, OVA, anime, and a manga, here’s a short(ish) synopsis:
Long ago, there was a priest called Myoue who lived in Kyoto. He had the ability to make his paintings come to life. Using this ability, he created Kyouto, a mirror capital where everything in it would be fixed if it was ever broken. He also drew a rabbit named Koto. This rabbit loved Myoue and wished to be human so they could be together, so she prayed to a god, who finally granted her wish. After being in love with Myoue, Koto wanted a child, so they found a child who commited suicide after his parents died in a war, gave him a pomegranate of immortality, and then moved to live in Kyouto. After living there, Myoue also gave this child a brother, Kurama, who is an inventor, and Yase, who is a princess and a demon. After a while, Koto is taken away because of her deal with the god(s), and then Myoue leaves as well. Before leaving Myoue gives the immortal orphan his prayer beads and declares the child the new Myoue / Priest, a title which he does not want at all.
A couple years pass, and new Myoue and his siblings are ruling over Kyouto as a council of three and eagerly await the return of their parents. Suddenly, a girl (who’s name happens to be Koto, too) crashes into the mirror city and is now looking for a way to return home.
(spoilers) Now, Kurama and Yase create a plan to use Koto and a giant robot to open the door back to Kyoto to find their parents, this causes and organization to come to Kyouto to try and stop them from opening a space/time rift.
In keeping up with the World-Three spirit, we’re picking up yet another manga series after the series’ anime ended. (sorry Muromi, thought there would be more hype.) If you’re like me and were confused by the anime, then the manga clears up some things while also bring in more questions. This series was initially scanlated by the currently dead group, 13th Hour, and I used their translation since this chapter was already done. I did this because I’m not really a good cleaner and I could use the practice and also to get a feel for PuchimasuTL’s raws, therefore, if there’s any issues with cleaning/font/redraws, I’d like to hear them. I have no real plans to redo chapter 1-3, so the next Kyousougiga release will probably be c5.
Also, if you haven’t, you’d probably like to catch up to the current chapter.
