Nokemono to Hanayome

(Not related to Penguindrum or YKA, but it's a post-Utena Ikuhara work so I figured this is as good a place as any)

Do you guys know about this manga? Ikuhara wrote it. It's been going for many years now, but there's never been an official localization, so like many, many manga, it remains super obscure to us westerners.

This is the description on MAL and similar sites. "This series weaves a strange, surreal, and often dark comedy resplendent with ruffles and lace. It is on the surface a farce about a young girl travelling with her lover, some sort of bear-type creature, but as to be expected of Ikuhara it's multi-layered. The series is being endorsed by Baby the Stars Shine Bright, the leading name in Japanese lolita fashion, and the characters often wear clothes based off of those from the company."

They drive around in a car. It seems so very Ikuhara.

Holy hell, I can't believe I had never heard of this considering that I am huge Nakamura Asumiko fan and actually like Baby the Stars Shine Bright. I am so going to check this out, ASAP.

Re: Nokemono to Hanayome

I found this manga just today, and I came on here to see if anyone else had noticed it! It has weird animals and a rather strange father-daughter dynamic, so it's trademark Ikuhara.
The first volume has been completed, but the scanlation group dosen't seem to have been active since autumn 2015 (and appear not to be responding to any queries about translations either). They have the raws for volume 2 as you can see here > http://w11.zetaboards.com/Tsukiscans/topic/8938990/1/

Google translating the Japanese Wikipedia page for the manga dosen't reveal much except that it has been serialized since about 2006, and the story is deffinitely a dark one (there was a plot summary but I tried not to look at that). There seem to be five volumes available on Amazon.

I'd love to see more of this translated (lolita fashion and Ikuhara are two of my favourite things in life), and I'm somewhat tempted to see if I can buy the Japanese volumes.

Re: Nokemono to Hanayome

For those who might not know, the mangaka behind this is the amazing Nakamura Asumiko. She is known for her less than conventional style and for doing away with the typical seme/uke conventions in her BL work.
She is just responsible for the art in this particular project but it adds to the hype, no doubt about it.

Here is a sample of Nokemono's art:

I can also see the Ikuhara connection since some of her work does somewhat echo SKU, in particular Barairo no Hoho no Koro.

omg...  I will translate if someone can help me find more volumes.  It takes a long time, but it's doable, not to mention it's Ikuhara!

Re: Nokemono to Hanayome

I bought all the volumes (1-5) half a year ago when I was in Japan and it's gorgeous! It's a shame nobody's translating it. Actually, it's a dream of mine to do it myself, but a very far-fetched one since I don't really know much about the process and my Japanese skills aren't good enough to quickly and comfortably translate 4 whole volumes just like that... Someday though! Unless you LadyButterflyNebula get there before me emot-wink (I'm also up for a collab, although at the moment I'm busy with other projects).

The world needs more Ikuhara as well as it needs more Nakamura Asumiko and what better way than to combine the two?  emot-dance

Re: Nokemono to Hanayome

I'm honestly kind of short on cash at the moment, but if anyone for some bizarre reason has either cash or copies they don't love, I'll happily be the one to butcher scan the raws for a translation project. emot-biggrin

I was actually enjoying this one myself, the art was gorgeous and it was a little less uh...yeah...than Yuri Kuma. I wasn't sure if it ever got finished or just fell off the map given what happened to the scanlations. I'd love to help get it here! I just can't afford the books at the moment. But I'm happy to do the elbow grease if someone will get the books and someone else will translate.

Re: Nokemono to Hanayome

So I bit the bullet and grabbed a set of this manga, since I just ordered shit from Japan anyway. I know the translation project will probably move slow but I'm happy to provide raws over time of the manga!
