Keyhole Theater Girls 10 (English) - Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei

Join us as Itoshiki-sensei... oh, wow. He's died. Died and gone to the underworld to be judged. But wait! His students have come, one by one, to join him, each with the intent to join with him. What will happen in this world without boundaries? Will our beloved Sensei's soul remain intact? Or will he be snookered into a world of nubile pleasures?

THIS WEEK ON ILL-MANNERED REQUESTS

Dear Japan:

Working on "I Don't Have Any Friends", and you motherfuckers had better make some decent Kodaka/shota-Yukimura doujinshi. 8<

Curse of the Small Series Fan

Flipping through galleries on e-hentai for ideas:

"Rape, rape, rape, rape, rape... shitty art... rape..."

-Charioteer

Yeahhhhh, it seems like the general Japanese Otaku preferences don't match up with our own.  Wanna know what I think about NTR? Fuck NTR :< I'd like more of a warm and fuzzy feeling over JEALOUS RAGE thank you.

Red-Light School District (English) - Original

Here's a short collaboration with Little White Butterflies that we did recently!  Not a whole lot to it, but I did like how the art style was sketchy.  It works well, it gives that home made feeling to it.  Check out their blog for the download links!

My Dear Mikoko (English) - Kaiji

For your perusal:

Ai wanted to celebrate the end of Kaiji's second season, which caused us to burst out into bouts of MANLY TEARS, with a doujin release. Of course, since the usual Kaiji fare is off-puttingly weird yaoi or those ones where bunny girls torture and peg him, his choices were limited.

Makinami Mari hits 9001 Downloads!

Just noticed this earlier today and wanted to thank you guys for your support!  We wouldn't be here today if weren't for readers like you!

Here's to the future!

For Your General Use

Since Ai appears to have gotten into the image-making craze, have a response image.

LIKE A BEAST (English) - Evangelion

Ho boy! Here it is! The folks over at rei-ayanami.com have been patiently waiting for this for quite some time now, but it's worth the wait! Basically, what we've done is made a dual release. A bunch of our readers from that board requested that we use a colorized version of this doujin that popped up, but I was still on the fence about it. So what I did since both versions were the same size and lined up the exact same, was just make two versions of this release. Those of you that would like the color version can have it, and those that prefer the black and white can have that as well. It's a win-win!

Beware Mr. Wolf! (English) - Code Geass

Lelouch is the Big Bad Wolf, and Suzaku is Little Red Riding Hood, and... oh? Things seem a little different than we remembered...

WANT/DO NOT WANT

Also wanted to ask: What doujin situations would you all like to see or see more of? And what common situations are completely inexplicable to you?

Limitations

Ai and I were talking about our next project, and we'd returned to a subject that we'd been at loggerheads over for a little while now - "Like a Beast", an Evangelion doujinshi by enuma elish.

Happy End of Evangelion (English) - Evangelion

WELP, it's been a while but we're finally done! Here it is, in all it's glory, Happy End of Evangelion completely scanlated. Took a good amount of 3 months, but it was well worth it.

Back to the Iinchou - Original Work (English)

Here's a little joint project that we just finished up with a fellow called Koubiikun.  I had some interest in doing this one after I saw it on Fakku, but then Koubiikun beat me to the punch and translated it.  But then I asked him if it was ok to use his translation and apply a little Strange Companions brand cleaning and editing.  So here we are!

Spice Girl - Wolf and Spice (English)

Sup gents!  We have ourselves a release for you all!  While Charioteer is working on Happy End of Eva (Jiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii~), I've found this little number to fill the gap.  And what better way to fill a gap, than with a gag! (LAUGH PLEASE)

Evangelion Manga Chapter 84b (English)

So here's the scene: Me and Charioteer, sitting online doing nothing in particular.  When all of the sudden I get this crazy idea "You know Chinese right?" "Yeah, that's actually the only language I've studied in school." "...You wanna translate the latest chapter of Eva? The raws are in Chinese." "*Puts glasses on* Let's do this." YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

IShoutedCleaning: Part 1 of The Editing process

Greetings program! Charioteer's post about his process of translation inspired me to make a post of my own for your amusement. I want to make something clear though, for this first part unlike typesetting I have not actually gotten decent practice with the cleaning process.  I consider myself to be at about below average level, though for cleaning doujins you don't really need to have as high skill level that you might for a popular manga title.  But I do take pride in making sure our releases are of some quality, because at the end of the day anyone can nab some raws, slap some text on with paint, and release it.  We're working with hentai here, no one's going to complain if a font looks off as long as it's readable heheh.  But since I have dabbled in regular manga scanlation, there are a few things that I make sure take place when we release a translation.

Luminous Mushrooms - Touhou (English)

Hokay, got some awesome Touhou action right here!  Might as well let Charioteer take over since this was one of his picks this time.  Till next time!

-IShoutedAI

Hello all, long time no blather.

Got this one on the recommendation of one of the doujin sellers at Katsucon back in February, and I do have to say that the recommendation was appreciated, as adorable yuri is right up my alley. I'll need to hunt for more Plum in the future.

Joint with Little White Butterflies: Koumakan Harem Route - Touhou (English)

Ossu! Got a joint release with LWB here!  I was acting cleaner and typesetter on this one, and booooy howdy was it a doosy.  Crazy redraws and lotsa HA HAAAAs all around!  Check out their page more details on the release here (Looks like it's a part of their hourly releases! Check them out all day today!). Here's a quick synopsis, "We join our nameless protagonist on his return to the Scarlet Devil Mansion, where he proceeds to greet the girls with the only way he knows best: With his penis. Massive orgy ensues."

Makinami Mari - Evangelion (English)

So there's two things that you gotta know about Mari, she's got a sex drive and she's got large boobs. THAT'S IT.  Granted, she's only been in one movie so far so we don't know a lot about her character buuuuuuuut, she does play into her archetypes very well in fandom.  She like's sex and isn't afraid to go get some.  Also she's the boob character. You know the kind, the one's who the main character will bump into when he's not looking where he's going, thus making him fall to the floor while the girl is unaware of what just happened (Ohno, I'm looking at you!).

Godlike Living - The World God Only Knows (English)

WELL NOW, Katsucon was an....experience, let's just put it that way.  I had some fun, but had to work nonstop being on staff.  Anyhoo, I did manage to finish working on this little number while I had some down time.  I do like the idea of keeping Kami-sama in character by forcing his actions.  It just seems odd to me that a guy who wouldn't willingly get involved with anyone has the balls to force himself on someone ><

Supernumerary Translator

I guess I owed you all a translation post at some point.

Though I never did tell you when I'd make it.

I've always wanted to put how I translate into words, so I guess I'll subject you all to a horrible barrage of them.

Quick Note: Online Doujin Viewing

Ossu! Just a little tid bit here:  As much as I prefer people to download our releases off our mediafire page, there are other alternates avaible.  At the begining of our translation career, we just had our releases hosted on Fakku and threads on rei-ayanami.com. But then we created this blog to have a spot where people could find our past works and little inside info on our translation process.  But, at least for now, this is just for posting updates and not for viewing the translations online.  For that, you have some options:

http://www.fakku.net/translators/StrangeCompanions

http://g.e-hentai.org/uploader/IShoutedAI

Just finished uploading all our translations to E-Hentai, so give it a look-see.  Just like Fakku, they have a ton of great titles there.

Wolf and the Rutting Season - Wolf and Spice (English)

Now I'm really excited about this release.  Why? Two reasons.  Number 1, this is a Wolf and Spice doujin.  Number 2, this is another from the collection of Wolf and Spice doujins by the author Ikuta Takanon.  I'm kind of a big fan of his art style (sheepishly glances at my stack of his works).  It's a great mixture of cute and sexy, which is hard to find a balance of these days.  Anyhoo enjoy this release, the first of Takanon's Wolf and Spice run.

Status Update: Wolf and the Rutting Season

Oh hey there, so our release schedule is going to be slightly different.  Turns out Charioteer just finished the translation for this number, so it gets priority over my side project lol.  Here's a sneak peak, expect it soon!

Status Update: ciaociao's Godlike Living (The World God Only Knows)

So you thought we were group that solely did Eva doujins?  Mwahahaha you were sadly mistaken!  Truth is we tend to do doujins from favorite series that Charioteer and I share.  Case in point, we really like TWGOK.  A lot.  So, to break out of our Eva spree I figured we go with this one.  2 main reasons: I like the art, and it's C79 doujin.  Kinda wanted to do something current, so if I seem like I'm jumping on the bandwagon....I guess I am heheh.  Almost done with the Japanese script, next comes the translation.  Expect it soonish!

Joint Release with Team Vanilla: Zannen desu!! Airi-san

Hay, you know what's great?  Joint projects with other groups that's what!  Right here is a original work story about a guy and his cousin, and well you know how that's going to end. >_<
