Battle Athletes Daiundoukai: Satellite Stage, Heat 3

Well, here we are again. We were doing so well for the first half of the year, but as so often happens, there have been many upheavals in the past four months. However, things should hopefully be settled for a while now.

I hope there are still some people who are interested in this project, but however that may be, and no matter what delays may take place, my desire and determination to see this project finished won't waver. So please believe in that.

On another matter, ever since Jmanga went out of business, we've received several requests to restart Kimi no Tame, but I'm afraid we have no intention of doing so. A very great deal more of it than we ever did is already available in English thanks to Jmanga, and that will have to do.

To tell the truth, there are actually several unclaimed manga Zefiris and I would love to be working on, but as should be obvious, we have enough trouble even attending to just one. Who knows what unwise gambits we may one day choose to make, but for now, we hope you will continue to enjoy Battle Athletes Daiundoukai.

Battle Athletes Daiundoukai: Satellite Stage, Heat 2

It's time!

Lots of people get to act cool this chapter. Mylandah makes her debut, and for those who know the character, her behavior is sure to meet or exceed your expectations... Next Jessie has a big moment, and then Kris enters the fray! By the way, there's no extra page this time, the chapter just ends abruptly. Yes, it's a cliffhanger alright.

One translation note. At a critical moment, Jessie refers to Akari as her "shinyuu" (親友), and we had the usual struggle to decide whether to put it as "best friend" or merely "dear friend, close friend, etc." Ultimately I decided on "best friend", as I think that really is the best way to describe their relationship. Also, it makes Jessie that much more awesome for boldly declaring it at such a moment.

We hope you will enjoy!

Battle Athletes Daiundoukai: Satellite Stage, Heat 1

Time to begin the main event! Or at least, to make our way to the place where we can begin getting ready to begin preparing for the main Anyway! On to the Satellite Stage.

Welcome back to Battle Athletes, where space, far from being the silent vacuum you might imagine, is filled with whooshing noises. Lots and lots of whooshing. You'll understand soon. Enjoy!

Battle Athletes Daiundoukai: Land Stage, Heat 5

Well well. You know that motivation and discipline I mentioned? I found it. It's been 29 days since our last release, and even though this is a double length chapter, we managed to do it in that time. It's really a lesson to me of how things can and should be done. Now, I certainly can't promise we'll be pumping out chapters every two weeks, but certainly we'll be aiming more toward a paradigm like that than we've managed in the past...

Anyway, it's tough to say much about this chapter without spoiling the suspense. This is the end of the Land Stage and gateway to the Satellite Stage, which is three times as long. For at least three of our aspiring young ladies (but which?), this is only the beginning. Many more struggles and important meetings lay ahead...and for Akari, one of the latter in particular.

One thing to add is that you should look closely at the group of bikers gathered on page 138. There are some rather amusing pre-race preparations going on between a few pairs of students...also, this chapter contains some NSFW elements, so careful where you read.

As always, I want to thank Zefiris for her eternal patience and indulgence, never complaining at my bipolar shifts between procrastination and bursts of demanding fervent action. She really is the one who makes this work possible. We hope you will enjoy!

Also, as promised, we are also releasing the raws of volume 1 at this point. Keep in mind that as these are unoptimized, the file size is quite large.

Battle Athletes Daiundoukai: Land Stage, Heat 4

Well, here we are again. Sorry for the long delay. There have been legitimate reasons for delays in the past, but there aren't any now, I'll be honest. This could've and should've been out long before this, and the only reason it wasn't is a lack of motivation and discipline on my part. My apologies for that, and for keeping you waiting.

In any case, it's Icchan's big moment, for both good and ill. This chapter sets the scene for the big Triathlon in Heat 5, which is the double-length, sixty page finale of the first volume. Please look forward to it.
