Daily dose of KKOW.
No reason to be sorry, those updates are half the reason I make these threads anyway.
From the thumbnail I genuinely though Mitsuhashi, Itou and Imai were wearing Test Cricket uniforms and I was trying to remember if there had been a Cricket chapter in KKOW which I had forgotten about. Never mind.
You do, but it usually gets interrupted by someone picking a fight or Takasaki or some shit.
Based Japanese Cricket board bringing the bants to England after a shocking Test series.
Also I was surprised that not only is there a National Japanese Cricket team, but also a National Japanese Women's Cricket team. And unlike Hong-Kong and some others the team isn't full of Pakistani and Bangladeshis.

And that's all for today, we'll see how Mitsuhashi handles the average American tomorrow. Thanks for reading.
Chapter 12 is done, and so is chapter 13, they'll be uploaded soon. If there's any mistakes feel free to correct us! At some point I'll ask TL-Anon to go back and translate the notes on the covers.
There's 3 of us. The new editor (Whose really good for his first time), TL and Me. I'm an organiser at best, though I try to proofread everything and make sure there's no mistakes.
Were these 3 chapters posted before the daily threads began or something? I feel like a read them really recently. Maybe I just jumped into it and couldn't stop one day I guess.
We've known each other for a while OP, how time flies, before we know it Bakuon Rettou will be done and we will be finishing our daily read of Ocha Nigosu.
Thanks chartfag, Hot Road was pretty good, scanlators putting their shitty watermark on stuff was annoying though. I should check out more shojo sukeban stuff. Also maybe you should make sukeban one of the categories in your chart.
I don't think I'll be using categories, it's not easy to easily define all these delinquent manga into categories, I mean sukeban is pretty clear, but that's like 3 or 4 of the chart at best. Everything else is kinda difficult, previous anon had suggested Yanki, Bosozoku, Punks and Yakuza but no one every pitched in on these categories or anything, they also overlap a lot so not sure what I'd do with that.
But anyways, yeah Hot Road was pretty tight, kinda depressing and heavy at times but good stuff nonetheless once you get used to its style.
Itou's face holy shit, he can't even believe how smooth Mtsuhashi was.
> no one every pitched in on these categories or anything
It's a lot of internet legwork just to find something that's not already on the list and browse through it.
Also, I didn't even know you were considering categories let alone one for yakuza.
No I didn't mean legwork to pitch new series, I meant to pitch ideas for the categories/tags for these delinquent series, to discuss how to properly categorize them because I'm not sure. To use the example at hand, Yakuza, if it's full on Yakuza then it's not delinquent at that point so the idea for a manga to have the Yakuza tag would be for a delinquent series that simply has a lot of elements related to Yakuza, which there aren't many, Gokusen and QP are the only two that come to mind.
I was thinking maybe a tag for Classic Delinquent (old school), maybe call it Yanki? And a tag for contemporary delinquents, new school shit like Sugarless, A-bout! and Ocha Nigosu, maybe one for Sports as well, even tho there aren't many. But I'd rather not decide this on my own.
Ah, then Emblem Take 2 would be out then. Oh well.
Anyway, I think it'd be good idea just to call it "classic" or perhaps even use "Pre-2000" for some series. It'd be kind of weird to use "Yankii" just for older series when it's still a term used in newer manga too.
Tl Anon here... almost done V4. Gotta love the Bakuon Rettou art
Yeah I had seen Emblem Take before but reading the description figured it was too Yakuza for the list. I think "Old School" might work to fit the classic 80-90s delinquents. Maybe "Pre-Old School" or "Older School" for the even older ones.
But would there be a max tags per manga or what? Really can't think of a single manga with more than 2 anyways.
Yeah, it pretty much is. Still, the concept is interesting enough to where I hope more than just the OVA gets translated some day.
Also, what about using decades as categories starting from the oldest manga on the chart?
Not sure, dividing by decades doesn't exactly tell or give any ideas about what the manga is about, and that's the idea so that people can more or less guide themselves into something they will like.
Yea... quite a few
I did the one from V3. I'll probably go back later and do the V2+V1 ones if they're not done
But that's kinda shallow, I mean Rokudenashi Blues is Old school, nothing else to it, Bakuon Rettou is also old school but nothing like RokuBlues, Bakuon Rettou is Bosozoku and so is Hot Road but still, nothing alike, Hot Road being Sukeban and Romance.
Well, hopefully more anons pitch in on this Tags discussion.
Generally speaking, charts tend to only give a shallow idea of what a series is about. If the creator puts any description of the series down at all.
Bakuon Rettou does kind of pose a problem because even though it was written in 2001, it's an 80s period piece. It probably wouldn't hurt to add a specific tag for it though.
You know, I never quite got the whole 'your face pisses me off' thing, but that Gokuraku guy with the bat finally made me understand. Man I want to see that smug fuck get his shit kicked in.
This shit is funny.
What is KKOW abbreviation for? The artstyle feels familiar.
