    Seems like an awesome manga! I kinda wanna read it. They need to license it!

      Agreed. The only thing I don’t like about scanlations is that, other than they’re unlicensed, is that the fan translations can be questionable too. I’m not too fluent in Japanese but I kinda know enough for me to figure things out and the mistranslations happen too. But yes, it’s highly recommended for everyone. I like shoujo manga, but I love the types with strong girls and strong guys as the main leads, instead of the usual (sad, helpless girl and strong, handsome popular guy situations). There are others too: Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Cardcaptor Sakura (of course LOL), Kodocha, Love Com (Lovely Complex), and a few more. http://adriculous.life/img/adri_smilies/01.gif

    Last Game sounds super cute! I fell out of the latest manga save for a few I’ve been following for years, but I used to read scanlations all the time. I spent sooo much time on Mangafox. Right now, all I’ve been reading is Otoyomegatari which is also super cute. I have email notifications set up for it so I won’t miss a new chapter. XD

      I was waiting for Stardust Wink too, but it hasn’t been updated since last year. I figured the series may have been licensed but I haven’t seen anything being sold anywhere. :( I’ll check out Otoyomegatari when I got the time. Thanks for the tip Raisa! http://adriculous.life/img/adri_smilies/01.gif

      Welcome Pauline! :D

      There’s so much (shoujo) manga out there that really deserves to be licensed. Last Game is definitely one of them. In a way, it’s a rare gem because it’s the type of story that you don’t normally see in a typical shoujo manga (with tropes that aren’t also typical either LOL). I think this also deserves an anime series or even a J-drama series too because it just has that aura.

      I plan on opening a site dedicated to unlicensed shoujo manga, maybe a reviews site or something like that. My only gripe with scanlations in general isn’t just the usual grammar/spelling mistakes, but also the “obvious” mistranslations too (some of the conversations sounded weird so that’s how I can kinda tell). Check it out at MangaKoi when you can. :)

    It sounds like a really great story and I am glad that you are enjoying it. Hopefully you get to read more soon! :D

      I’m still on wait mode for the last chapter to be posted up. Currently, I’m reading a scanlation of the new CCS (Cardcaptor Sakura) sequel manga that was recently released a few weeks ago in Japan in the Nakayoshi manga magazine. Because it’s only the first chapter and nothing really much happened, we’ll have to wait once a month for the next installment to come out. Ah, what a long wait LOL. It’s at MangaKoi also.

      I also found a manga that’s almost similar to Last Game (well, similar tropes with not-so-typical heroines and not-so-typical male leads), but with this one, I really wanted to give a huge bitchslap to the heroine for being so uptight and trying to act cool even though she kept reminding herself over and over and over again on how much she’s in love with the guy. The guy, on the other hand, already showed his affections for the girl, right from the beginning. It’s like with “Kaichou wa Maid-sama” with Usui already showing some affections for Misaki, but Misaki denies them and just acts/tries to be all cool. Oh prideful girls LOL.

      I’ll definitely write more when I discover another “rare gem” manga, so to speak. :D

      Hi Michelle! Yes, there is. The first chapter (yes, chapter LOL) of the sequel manga came out at Nakayoshi magazine last month (It’s July 1st today now LOL) and a scanlation was posted on MangaKoi. Because this is a serialization in a magazine, each chapter comes out every month, since the magazine comes out every month LOL. Hopefully we should see the second chapter sometime soon this month. :)

      I’m currently building a Sakura x Syaoran shrine too, as my commemoration to CCS’ 20th Anniversary. ^_^
