Shinohayu ch34: Vice-Captain Match

Shizuku's surname before this chapter was written as のづ which is usually transcribed as Nozu. Depending on the romanization system used, it can also be written as Nodu or even Nodzu. These are all correct. I use Nozu because it's by far the most common way of transcribing it. However in this chapter it's written as のつ Notsu, which I assume is a mistake.
Also, Shizuku has a verbal tic of sometimes adding the word なんて nante at the end of her sentences. It has no real meaning in this context and naturally there is more than one way of translating it but I used "or something" which I think is quite close to the intended meaning.
And technically this is not Kyouka's first mahjong tournament but apparently someone forgot about the Matsue Children's Tournament.

Saki ch161: Comrades in Arms

As you probably know, the new Toki manga begins publishing next week. Assuming it has a nice story and all, Akio Translations will provide a translation for it. However, since it gets published on the same day as Shinohayu and Saki Biyori, if the raws also appear on the same day, it will have to get in line. Right now I intend to keep giving priority to Shinohayu (and of course to Saki when it applies). For the others, I'll see as I go.

Anyway on other news Ritz made a new blog post but doesn't say much, mainly talks about her usual troubles with adding ink and screentone to all pages. The chapter is nearly complete though so she didn't do so bad this time. Enjoy:

Saki ch160: Match for 5th

There is a track in the Achiga-hen OST called senshu nyuujou (enter the players) that is perfect for this chapter. Enjoy:

Oh and in case it wasn't clear, the one who makes the "ass" joke is Uta.

Saki Biyori Chapters 50 & 51

Saki Biyori: a double chapter! One about Kiyosumi (mainly Tacos really) and an unusual chapter where Koromo meets the Ikeda triplets! Enjoy:
Ritz made a very short blog post:
- For a couple of extra panels with Himeko and Nodoka in the most recent Saki chapter, she didn't have time to draw clothes on them so they weren't included. She'll try to put them in the volume release.
EDIT: By the way, the Saki raws just came out, so expect the translation in a couple of days.
