It's another Tsugumomo thread!
Today's dump is chapter 95.
Link to our website: http://tsugumo.moe
1. I read up to chapter x. Why are there further chapters released here?
A. Because this is just translation and alpha speed TS.
2. Where can I get more chapters? I only read up to [current Batoto releases].

"あ゛ used to be commonly used in manga to express an exclamation — "aagh!" or something like that. I feel it has become less common (if not rare) these days. え゛、い゛、お゛、の゛ and so on are sometimes used in a similar way. You may see them in casual blogs and tweets, but never in formal documents." -Some Q/A on stackexchange
>Ouhi: A puppet band!!!
>Ouhi: Wh- why...
>Kazuya: Puppet... band? What's that, Miss Oriobana?
>Ouhi: L- let me explain.
>Ouhi: The exorcists of Tsuzura Temple
>Ouhi: Possess sealing tools known as "seal bands".
>Ouhi: We use these to seal tsukumogami when we carry them with us.
Text: Seal band
>Ouhi: This tradition began in order to prevent private fighting between exorcists.
>Kazuya: So everyone's empty-handed...
>Ouhi: Anyway, as their name suggests, seal bands are seals.
>Ouhi: The tsukumogami cannot use their powers.
>Ouhi: However, the "puppet bands" are different!!
>Ouhi: They appear the same as the seal bands, but they are something else entirely!
>Ouhi: If you use a puppet band, you can make use of a tsukumogami forcibly, without a contract.
Text: Spirit power
>Ouhi: And what's more, there is no need to drain the owner's spirit power.
>Takano: Eh.. that's new...
>Kyouka: What is this...
>Kyouka: If tsukumogami get used like that...!
Unicode calls it: COMBINING KATAKANA-HIRAGANA VOICED SOUND MARK
I thought it looked similar to the dakuten mark used for certain Hiragana characters.
>"あ゛(a゛) used to be commonly used in manga to express an exclamation — "aagh!" or something like that.

So how does one decode the onomatopoeia in the first panel here? Is that a garbled Kanji?
(I also thought I spied i~~~e in the bottom right panel (right bubble, leftmost vertical line. But the bubble just ends in "i~~~tsu!!!"
If you want it to look prefect use a redrawer. If you want it to be good enough then ghost out the existing text with a 10-20% mask over them then make sure and use a white stroke around the letters.
I'm a 1 man Anon with absolutely zero experience doing any of this stuff. I'm only doing this to help out fellow Anon's who are impatient like myself for the proper release in a few months. I went with this, does this look fine?
>Ouhi: They run out of power quickly and die.
>Kyouka: Are you kidding me...
>Kyouka: Tsuzura Temple uses shit like that!? You call yourselves "pro-tsukumogami" but you're the same as them, aren't you!
>Ouhi: No, you're wrong!
>Ouhi: They're a taboo, even for us!
>Ouhi: They should be well hidden in the secret warehouse!
>Ouhi: So, how did...
It's パッ. The other bit's just an extension of -なさい, I should change the line a bit to reflect that though.
>Tairaku: Damn, I lost to temptation!
Text: Damn, that attack destroyed it...!!
Yes, misTL as mentioned here:
>Saki: Ohhh, what's happeniiing!?
>Saki: Tairaku had another tsukumogami, did he!?
>Kyouka: That's... a tsukumogami from Mayoiga!
>Kyouka: Guramon, the gramophone!
>Guramon: Kyo... ka...
>Saki: ...? Huuuh, I couldn't really hear that, but...
>Saki: As everyone knows, using multiple tsukumogami is insanely difficult!
>Saki: Tairaku had a real surprising trick up his sleeve!
>Saki: Of course, there's nothing against it in the rules!
>Kyouka: This is why some of us are missing!
>Kyouka: They're looking to win by using up Mayoiga's tsukumogami!!
Something like this? I'm learning this as I go so I honestly have no idea what the fuck I'm doing.
>Kyouka: Like hell!
>Kazuya: ...it's no use.
>Kazuya: If you make a scene now, the tournament might be called off.
>Kazuya: If that happens, the Mayoiga tsukumogami will be executed, as planned.
>Kazuya: What's most certain is that Miss Oriobana will be restored to power if we win this competition.
>Kyouka: Why so calm!? You're just like them after all...
>Kazuya: Sorry, Kyouka. Please just bear it for now.
>Kazuya: We'll definitely come to their rescue.
>Not necessarily using their abilities
I dont know the guy shouting things out in the last fight had an enslaved gramophone.
Could explain how hes breaking the restriction of having to yell shit out.
Text: That guy...
Text: What a face he made.
>Madarai: They noticed the puppet band.
>Madarai: But our advantage is still firm.
>Yeah, seems like they are just straight up draining them while fighting. Not necessarily using their abilities, atleast not yet.
Oh, everything makes sense now. It's an extra spiritual power supply.
I like the little touches, like how between panels 2 and 3 she changed into a submissive, defensive posture and started backing away, showing how instinctively scared she was.

>Ouhi: ...that's all.
>Chikage: A tool for restraint and forced usage... there's something like that...!?
>Akito: How dare they...!
I understand you were new/working alone, I was just saying thats
how it normally work when people try to do full releases
On a side note, yes that looks perfectly fine. Thanks for all the work
you do translating
>Ouhi: Yes, this is Tsuzura Temple's dark legacy...
>Ouhi: As former head, I apologize profusely...
>Shinkurou: That's the reason the seemingly failed announcements of "I caught the daruma doll" during the previous match were working!
>Ouhi: Yes. It was the ability of the gramophone tsukumogami held by the puppet band.
>Kyouka: Guramon's ability...
>Kyouka: He recorded the announcement ahead of time
>Tairaku: I caught the daruma doll!
>Kyouka: And replayed it compressed into an instant.
Case in point. Unless I've misunderstood something.
>Ouhi: I suppose puppet bands were used in the previous two battles as well...
>Ouhi: Now, the fourth battle is next.
>Ouhi: Hiyori's tsukumogami is the katana, Naotsugu.
>Ouhi: Ayukawa's is the wrapping cloth, Karakusa.
>Ouhi: In a battle of blade versus cloth, Hiyori should have the advantage. However, we can't anticipate what tsukumogami they will be using with a puppet band...
>Ouhi: Is there any tsukumogami among the missing who might work well with a wrapping cloth?
>Chikage: I wonder...
Yeah it's fine, but use your judgement, the object is to not make it distracting. Draw the readers eye away from the old words as much as possible. Also, make your letters larger and try to use a similar font. Basically try to cover up the old wording as best as possible. Try using obelix pro for that top panel.
>Saki: The fourth match of the Nine Masters Tournament will begin!!
>Saki: The challenger, Higashina Hiyori!!
>Saki: She is ranked Eighth Sigil, the highest rank present in Tsuzura Temple! Her tsukumogami is a katana, "Naotsugu"!
>Saki: And the Sixth Master, Ayukawa Ayumi!
>Saki: Rank, Seventh Sigil. Her tsukumogami is a wrapping cloth, "Karakusa"!
>Saki: In terms of both rank and tsukumogami suitability, Higashina has the advantage!
>Saki: However, her opponent is one of the Masters!
>Saki: It's crystal clear that this will be a battle for the ages!
>Saki: Now, the fourth match of the Nine Masters Tournament...
Dropped the opacity on the mask, upped the font size by 6, used Obelisk Pro. Better?
Sorry to shit up your thread with getting help, OP.

That's it for this chapter. I'll do 96 on Sunday or Monday probably.
I don't mind using bad raws, we were behind because there weren't any raws at all. Then someone noticed that Monthly Action is sold as an ebook now, so people started ripping ebook raws.
>as a result nobody bothers to make actual H
Wrong. That complete depends on the anime fampai. Mangas without anime aren't very popular among hentai artists.
To Love Ru is borderline-H and has tons of doujins.
I'm a complete novice. This is my second time even using Photoshop in my life, the first being a few days ago for 94. Doing something like redrawing is a bit past my level, I think. I did attempt what you suggested and it came out horribly so I'll save that for another day.
Done. I can barely notice the text under it now. Which I suppose is good since that's the entire purpose of this ordeal.
>ask for any advice in scanlation threads and >>>/gd/
For filling in any little background details you cant hide with text, the Clone/Stamp tool is super useful. Definitely would recommend learning to use it. With a few minutes of work after erasing text, you can have something at least passable for a redraw.
Here, threw in content aware into it and it kinda does not look ass, probably will be useful to you.
And with text (I don't usually typeset so I have no idea what font to use, just used Impact)
Id just wait few days for the live tl thread before spoilers.
Man how many months till we see kazuya/flute fight?
Its the hypest thing this serie has had so far.
THE BAND GIRL HAS A CHAIN TSUKUMOGAMI??
I'm picking up again this shit right now
With the conclusion of that fight, the score is tied 3-3, with 3 matches to go.
By the laws of narrative causality, the good guys have to win by a margin of one.
So there are three possibilities:
granny loses, Sunao wins, Kazuya wins
granny wins, Sunao loses, Kazuya wins
>least likely, but what we really want
granny wins, Sunao wins,
Kazuya gets DQ'd for maiming his opponent
S&M is a thing, after all. It's not as weird as this guy's tsugumomo.
>A FUCKING SPRING
Oh god, I didn't notice page 26. God help me.
I'll keep these in mind for the future. I just wanted to get a quick and dirty copy out that didn't look like total shit since nobody else was offering. I'll be sure to look at these tools more closely when I have some free time.
how hard is Kazuya going to beat that bald bastad??? I just cant wait
Tsugumomo chapter 95
I should have been asleep hours ago. I did a quick skim to see if there were any problems but I didn't see anything. If anything needs changed/improved/whatever be sure to let me know and I'll fix it when I wake up.
The previous disclaimer applies. I'm not a typesetter nor a cleaner. I'm a complete newbie to image editing hence the poor quality shown. I'm not affiliated with the usual guys who do this and I'm only doing it because nobody else was. If you can do better then by all means please do so. Alternatively wait a few months for the tank scans to appear and the usual guys who work on Tsugumomo will do it with a high quality scan.
Oh, come on. School uniform Azami loves Kazuya just as much,
>94 and 95 finally getting translated
It's been so long
My dick is ready
Then maybe kanaka doesnt win and reign thousand years of darkness upon the land.
Yoshikazu's bodies are very good but I don't find them anywhere near as fappable as fully H focused art. Panneling and fetishes matters a lot too I'm at a point where I mostly only fap to some kind of midly extreme fetishes H.
I meant getting wet from seeing her little boy become even stronger and even more murderous, anticipating finally getting to fight him herself.
And I'm sure she'd still enjoy her genes completely obliterating those who don't know their place.
I've purchased all previous volumes of the series. We've just been without any content since October and if we continue to wait for tank scans we would continue to not have any until March or April at the earliest. I'm an impatient person, it's in my nature. Given the choice of either waiting months or putting a bit of effort in to get it earlier (albeit with a shittier scan) I will always pick the latter. If my dogshit "typeset" helped others then that's just a bonus.
Worst-case: Kazuya goes missing. (Gets pulverized without the Amasogi witnessing this).
Cue WorstMom going on a stone hunt, killing Gods left and right.
Maybe even wresting back control.
Deep down she just wants a worthy opponent to shred her to pieces.
Not her fault that everyone is so weak.
Even Kazuyas Human Bride in spe managed Ascension, so it should not be that difficult.
Maybe they should have her made drill instructor.
>Yoshikadu created a self insert just so he could run those sweet tiddies back for both the fictional audience and the reader
Now the design makes sense.
The enslave faction doesn't care.
This still doesn't explain how he was able to touch the shuriken and add a second unless I'm retarded and missed something.
Considering the daruma ability makes a connection to the target's soul, and that she has a spiritual connection to her tsugumomo, it may have simply spread through that connection.
Not what I was expecting the puppet bands to be. I thought it would also be an object person being used remotely but this is still a good development and answer the questions I had about the Raws.
It's funny how the tournament doesn't ban the usage of multiple tsukumogami.
Whats the connection between the disabled symbol and titjob?
She did keep an eye on kazuya to protect his virginity against the usurper tagusari.
Maybe hes expecting suprise spoilers of yoshi drawing a scene of kirihas revival on stream.
Im glad the flat trope characters got removed.
Yoshi designed them like 10y ago so its understandable the manga is much better now.
I liked the kind of magical slice of life chapters though, nice and cute and low stakes, but still fun and exciting. Especially the loli-er versions of Kiriha. Both plot and PLOT are nice but I wouldn't complain if we got more of those earlier style shenanigans again.
it's generical shit, but it's generical well done with amazing art cool shit.
SoL PLOT was fine but highschool filled with shallow characters and boss of the week type chapters were not.
Luckily the manga has enough lewd so people masturbate trough the poor first half and start paying attention to the plot around the Mayoiga introduction.
Thoughts on the director?
>Im glad the flat trope characters got removed.
>highschool filled with shallow characters and boss of the week type chapters were not
I'm rereading now that we're catching up again, and damn right, that HS arc with monster of the week in retrospect does feel like a chore right now BUT on the other hand, it also serves a clear purpose.
I mean, everything seems planned from the start, there's no wasted chapter (usually). Intro chapters set up a bit of lore, explain the in-universe physics and all that shit, and we're introduced crucial characters and info right from the start. It ties nicely from the HS arc into the Mayoiga one and so on.
I wish it had been shorter, but other than making the fights shorter and throwing even more exposition (which tends to be a terrible tool in writing) I don't see how it could have been faster, or maybe instead of so many Amasogi at the start, we could have done with just one to explain the rules, one or two to introduce Sunao and the Mayoiga faction and then cut the exposition of the Mayoiga intro and do it sparingly throughout the chapters.
Then again, I'm no editor, and now that the HS dumbass friends are gone it's all super nice.
It's not that hard and I could explain it in a post, but it's easier when there are guides already.
I may have still a guide bookmarked, give me a bit.
>Not that guy but if I wanted to git gud at scanlation and PS where should I read editing guides?
i have translated plenty of hentai doujins to spanish.
First you need the fonts.
Anime ace is the most basic.
Patch tool and Spot healing brush will be really useful for redraws.
Use the pen tool to redraw lines you need to emulate the original lines the best you can.
That's the most general stuff that i can think of.
if you have any other question i'll be glad to help although i'm an amateur.
Alright, I know this nigga, he's pretty good:
Note, it's not the absolute truth in cleaning, but if you follow the guide nothing's wrong and you'll learn most of it.
Fuck that, NEVER EVER use anime ace, it's the comic sans of manga. Seriously.
The standard font is actually Wild Words.
I meant it more jokingly, there's no set rules, that said...
I started scanlating almost a decade ago, even back then I got grilled when I used Anime Ace as a noob.
One criticism of Anime Ace is the way it does certain letters. The O and E are especially disliked, the A is also pretty bad imo, the B is top heavy and looks awkward. Stuff like that.
Wild Words isn't perfect, but it's miles better. Sometimes you'll find other fonts that fit better certain styles, but Wild Words is a good standard. If you can get hold of the lowercase wild words font set, you'll be enjoying it a lot.
>thee O and E are especially disliked, the A is also pretty bad imo, the B is top heavy and looks awkward. Stuff like that.
Agree a lot with this, i always felt akward when looking at it.
I'm glad that there's a wild words version with "Ñ" and Accent mark.
Thanks a lot since i'm considering to translate Tsugumomo to spanish because the last scalantion group left it at chapter 42.
I swear Crow looks like a bleach character when gender swapped.
Everything about her physique makes me envy her husband. He got to tap that at least two times and you know she demanded more.
I dont think a better ass exists in manga.
what if in the end
Kiriha revives but Kyouka dies during the final battle??
but what if she developes
lovefor Kazuya and then dies?
Shame yoshi hasnt drawn many dicks lately.
>and you know she demanded more.
I dunno, it always seemed like she only married him so that she might have kids who could challenge her. She was always more interested in Kiriha.
At any rate, I think he had a ballbusting fetish. It's the most probable way that Kiriha could have picked up the habit.
I haven't read this in a while but tsukumogamis can't get pregegetnant right?
Granny is a half tsugumomo half human, so yes they can.
Everyone has to deal with loss of a relative at some point.
So kiriha has chances to win kazuyas bowl.
(I don't mention kukuri because that's impossible)
what if it actually has a
I think he's going to release all of his contracts besides flute once the tournament is over since they'll then have a place to stay. It's probably going to just stay those 3 + the usual suspects for his harem.
>its a every single girl in the series harem end
but well except for
incest, its actually bad
I get the scene where they miscounted the Tsugumomo but is there any other evidence Kiriha is still alive? I mean, I'd love it, but I don't want to get my hopes up.
I dont even understand why people are upset about Kiriha since her death was good for the narrative and Kazuyas growth.
Obviously someone had to keep Kiriha company in the afterlife. They're long time buddies after all.
Can someone here record Yoshikazu's streams?
I've been doing it a bit through 2016 and sharing it but unfortunately there's been a military draft so I can't do it anymore since I'm barely home.
I've missed so many pages and covers, it pisses me off
All you need:
>a PC you can keep on for a long time
use Window Capture on Yoshi's stream (LiveFC2 is way better than his Youtube) and just keep the window open till it's over. If you want to do other stuff have it open alone on a window and put the player size to "Fit Browser" instead of "Fullscreen".
I plan on writing a script that automatically checks his RSS feed and records his stream while it's on, and getting an NAS to store/share them eventually but that'll have to wait because of the fucking draft.
So in that time, can someone take over for me?
Remember that the enslave faction intended to execute the Mayoiga tsukumogami group in the first place for trying to murder Kukuri. Considering how the band pretty much kills the tsuku after one fight it wouldn't be used by them otherwise.
Madarai seems to have a good relation with that incense burner tsuku also.
Did they ever consider doing a proper adaptation of this series?
it's like they always make a big ad to promote the manga
It sucks but that's how life is.
Harem ends are completely shallow and kill any serious writing. I can take it if it's a pure comedy ecchi series like monster musume. But you know, boobs aside, Tsugumomo has interesting characters and a great plot.
It deserves much better than a meme ending.
which is a killing blow since its to the heart or at least extremely close to it. Granny enjoying the death of humans?
I think it depends on the circumstances of the gender swap fantasy.
GS and fucked by a:
Man (not gs male)? GAY
Man (gs female)? gay
Woman (female)? het
Woman (gs male)? GAY
Yourself (not gs)? Almost not gay, borderline masturbation.
Yeah, she's only 2 years older then him (which I think is a semi-retcon because she's portrayed as considerably older in the earlier chapters, but whatever.) So when she gets out, he'll be her onii-chan.
God only knows how her brother complex will evolve under the new circumstances. We're breaching new fetish territory here.
Holy shit. This fucking chinese comic book.
During ongoing life or death battle against their mother.
Just finished reading this.
What a wid ride i just hope kiriha and kukuri don't revive.
Also pillow girl is best girl.
>i just hope kiriha and kukuri don't revive
>Madarai faction names
I bet these people didn't have a very fun school life
This why i hate harem shonens where death loses its meaning.
People shouldnt fixate on the ending or what girl is going to win so much.
Its the journey that matters.
>He'll be her onii-chan.
God only knows how her brother complex will evolve under the new circumstances. We're breaching new fetish territory here.
What a time to be alive.
He received a hanjob from 50% of the female cast.
it still is.
Talking about hourglass girl.
If kasumi borrows a second, is she able to select the second when she disappears from existance? because that could be op as fuck.
Tantric sex is more about a lenghty foreplay with lots of skinship with the intent of driving the couple's libido through the roof and make the orgasm more intense wich does not necessarily involve penetration, and seeing the bath scene with oriobana and the pillow girl where he came 3 times is a perfect example
