Anyone here like Hayate x Blade? I don't see much discussion about it.
There was a brief time I was obsessed with it and actually bought a couple of volumes from...Seven Seas(?) when the fan translation stopped. I think the volume I bought was the one Minori and whats-her-name purple stripe girl challenged the president. Then I think Seven Seas dropped it and there was nothing available for a while so I gave up.

It wasn't a bad series and I still like quite a few of the characters, but looking back on it, it was very much a relic of the time when there just weren't that many choices for longer running yuri series. The jokes were always there but the relationships never sailed too far...at least when I was still reading.
It's old and also long with a bumpy fan translation so it quietly slipped from everyone's minds.
It's ended for years and wrapped up on a fairly decent note after such a long serialization, so most of the discussion has already come and gone.

I doubt many in the English-using parts of the internet are even aware that Hayashiya has been doodling some unofficial depictions of the characters set some 10 or so years after the final chapter (https://twitter.com/8848426/status/1352650644264345605) or answering questions about the characters and setting over Peing.
Are those the students as adults? I recognize a surprising amount of them despite not having read this in a while

Where is the president and Shizuku?
Probably off to conquer the world or whatever. Hayashiya has said her drawings aren't an official "canon" thing, which makes sense given her doujin origins. She understands the importance of allowing fans' imagination to run free.
Isn't there a sequel (Hayate x Blade 2) that ended pretty recently? Are there any translations of it?
Hayate × Blade 2 ran the month right after the "un-numbered" serialization and the plot progresses as if nothing had changed, so I wouldn't call it a sequel per se. It also ended in November 2017 which isn't that recent.
I describe it as "very gay but also has weirdass art", which is usually appropriate for any yuri published before 2013 or so.

One of my all-time favorite manga! My hype just fell apart after the series stopped being licensed and the scanlations got choppy. I hope it gets a nice official release someday.
I had to look at the pixiv tags to even get an inkling of who these were supposed to be.
Long running series and never got an anime. UGH!
>Then I think Seven Seas dropped it and there was nothing available for a while so I gave up.
Seven Seas didn't drop it. They paid the original publisher to get the right to publish HxB in English but HxB got a new publisher in 2008 (Shueisha). SS was unable to get the rights from the new publisher, probably because Shueisha owns Viz Media which is a competitor of SS.
I used to read the shit out of this back in the day. The premise was ridiculous, it was funny, and it had (mostly) interesting characters, at least one of whom being a legit ninja with an insatiable hunger for her fellow swordswomen (see pic).

I still have the 6 officially translated manga in one of my bookshelves. Good (though sad since they stopped at only 6) times.
And Viz hasn't published it because they fucking suck?
>And Viz hasn't published it because they fucking suck?

That, and they don't think it will sell well for them
Literally still remember the news when it ended as it was yesterday. I felt pretty nostalgic that day and wondered how many more decades it's gonna take YP to finish it.
I read that Hayashiya declined it but I need confirmation of this.
Too bad, it would be a great way to get the series back in the limelight
It's over, the chances of it getting animated are basically zero.
Oh, That artist!

I think here are most of her works:


Tomorrow I'll post all her works I gather from there.
So... There's a chance that if I message them daily about how desesperate I am about Hayashiya's work ... They will publish it?

We have to coordinate!

Why are the scans for this series so fucking shitty? The art and the translation are already bad enough, but some pages are completely unreadable.
If you didn't save the high quality digital raws that Ultra Jump put up for free viewing last year, then just go buy the ebooks. Crying about poor quality scans here of all places won't suddenly make the scans crisp and nice.
I started reading this two weeks ago so I have no idea what you're talking about.

Bad translations? From which group are you reading this masterpiece?

Also, I cannot complain about the quality of scans, at least there are free.
Actually, I'm the one doing the typesetting from chapter 90 onwards. Really sorry about the very slow pace... but we actually already reach the last chapters of the first part in Yuri Project.
If any of you are so incline in helping in any manner, please consider visit the thread in YP:
Whichever group did the first 30 chapters or so. I just wanna know why some pages look like enlarged thumbnails.

Thank you very much for your work, Ryo!!

This one will always warm my heart.

May Maria-sama bless the author.
After continuing the series on Dynasty, the image quality is better now, but the translation isn't really any better.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, shall we?

I seriously think HxB is a masterpiece.

However, should I assume that you are offering yourself for the translation? Because there's no profit of using destructive criticism.
>you can't complain if you can't do better
Come the fuck on, anon. I expect better of this board to use the most stupid and fallacious argument ever. If something is bad, then it's bad.

Excuse me, I am on a thread of what I consider a great manga. I am grateful of the fans it has and that still update this manga.
But I can't sympathize with someone who simply says ''it's bad''. To me, that sounds like weeping ''don't enjoy things I consider bad''.

I must insist that you argue with your reasons to say that it has a bad translation.
Generally stilted sentence structure and akward word choice that makes reading a chore. Also, not translating certain terms like shishou (it just means teacher for fuck's sake), while other terms like shinyuu and whiteshirt flipflop between being translated or not.
It's not terrible, but it's far from adequate.

>To me, that sounds like weeping ''don't enjoy things I consider bad''.
Thanks for explaining your reasons. Now I understand what you are talking about.

To me those are minor nuissances. To me, the swing of those terms go at the discretion of the translator/s, or could be explained as that it could have had more than one translator (it has been a long manga), maybe the musicality of the word, or even the nuances could not be translated (As you say that ''shisho'' is 'teacher', what's the difference with 'sensei' ?)

Again, thank you for illustrate it, and you have right to feel it as not-adequate, obviously.

Shishou might also be translated as 'master'. It definitely has different connotations than sensei.
Master and teacher are the same thing.
It's pretty good but I haven't read it in several years so I'm not fully caught up. I for one can't even see Hayate and Ayana as a crack ship, much less an actual ship. Jun / Yuuho and the Prez and her secretary are good yuri ships though. Even if you don't like incest

I read it all and I didn't like it. The art is bad and for every character there's like 5 other characters who look exactly the same. There's way too many characters running around and I can barely tell them apart. Ayana and Hayate don't have a lick of chemistry together. The plot meanders quite a bit and the drama about Ayana's old partner didn't need to be stretched for a hundred chapters. Nagi turned out to be a pointless character. Fights are boring and humour is dumb too.
Nothing about this series clicked with me. Too 2000s for me. Also, this series ended in fucking 2013 and it's still not fully translated? And there's a sequel that has a chance of being translated before the end of the millennium? End me already.
Oh hey, at least there's porn.
Why does it matter that there is no translation when you didn't enjoy what you read of it?
Because I read 106 chapters and it's frustrating as all fuck to realise there's still two more left. It gnaws at my mind leaving something unfinished so close to the end, and it may take to the next year until those chapters are out..
>106 chapters
>can't tell characters apart
Can't blame me when they're all so similar. There's like 5 characters with the same hairstyle and nearly identical white hair, and another dozen characters with black hair and nearly identical hairstyles, and they all have the same face too. Hell, there's even one or two characters who just recycle Ayana's design.
The only non background characters that look alike are Hayate and Nagi because they're twins. You should get your eyes checked desu
Don't you dare tell me that after I spent an entire month reading this manga. I could swear before a martial court that every character in this series has the same face, and the number of unique hairstyles and colours can be counted in one hand.
And that can be said about quite a few Manga series. Artists tend to draw faces similar to one another. Complaining about is pointless
No, not really. Plenty of manga artists know how to give their characters unique faces, and designs as well.

>Complaining about is pointless
Is Hayate X Blade the oldest finished series that's still being translated? How many series that started in 2003 and already ended you know that still get scanlations? (even if it's every blue moon)
If it's not the oldest one I don't know which could be.

I'm glad Hayashiya managed to finish her future-setting doodles, even if it's taken quite some time.
Any notable future yuri in there?
>None of the battle couples got together
>Main pair is still in that one sided relationship
Wow 0 payoff after all these years l. I'm glad the translations stopped since apparently that manga wasn't worth it
If you exerted the effort to feed your post through google translate, I wonder why you couldn't do the same to Hayashiya's writing. But ok.
Future yuri? I already see yuri in there.

In fact what Hitsugi Amachi states on the match against Akira and Sae can only be seen as a declaration that they are a long couple already.

Or would you like something more explicit?

I see your point. But for me it's just the contrary. I love seeing different body shapes of women and not just the curvy ones. Also, for me it makes sense that they are not voluptuous since they do sport.
I got the first 18 volumes from Mandarake and yes, it costed me like 100 usd with shipping and all that. But well, I am on the other side of the glove so... At least it's something and it could be shipped to my country.

How difficult is it to read this in Japanese?
Not very, the first (few?) chapter(s) can be found in the Ultra Jump app so you can take a look and see if your comprehension level matches the text.
