Houkago Teibou Nisshi – Vol. 6 Ch. 34

Shock Leader

I apologise for taking so long to release a new chapter, most of us are busy or have zero motivation for scanlation. It would really speed things up if someone (preferably with experience and motivation) with cleaning/redrawing/typesetting could join and help out.

Also it took me like 2 months to realise my printer is retarded and causes screentone issues unless it’s scanned at an angle. I will rescan the past 2 chapters someday.

Finally, I want to shit on this german guy that’s been commenting on the blog

I don’t even know if this retard is going to read this considering he keeps commenting on the same old teibou post but jesus christ dude, I know we’re really slow, I don’t really care about the ‘hurry up pls i’m impatient’ posts but can you please not publicly ping the FUCKING AUTHOR on twitter?

Deserted Island Part 3

This marks the end of Volume 5! This took way too long. I would like to say we haven’t uploaded a new chapter because mangadex went down but the truth is we are simply slow 🙂 I still remember saying we aim to catch up to the latest chapter by the end of 2020. hahahahhahahah…ha…

By the way we now have a google drive with zips of our previous chapters if you want to read teibou while mangadex is down. We’ll continue to upload the zips up onto the drive for convenience’s sake.

If you remember from a previous post I was planning to order teibou online to scan it. Well it arrived so we’ll be using the 600dpi scanned raws for Volume 6 and 7 and redo Volumes 1 through 5 after that.

Here’s an example of a scanned page. Here’s a link to the same page but from a digital source. Here’s the link to the whole of chapter 1 scanned. Feel free to zoom in and compare with the digital raws.

So basically TEIBOU NEEDS A CLEANER PLEASE. I don’t really know how to clean, I feel like I’m fucking the details up and I take like 10 minutes on a page. So please if there is any cleaners willing to help please contact me in the discord please thanks.

Deserted Island Part 2 [09/03/2021]

Our teibous are as cute as always. Hope you enjoyed the chapter and that it was worth the wait Hina kinda came full circle in her fishing journey, seeing how she almost got violated by a tako her first time meeting prez. Look at how much our little hina has grown (‘ω’)

Also if you’re interested in seeing the island in google earth, feel free to check out the previous post to see some comparisons.

Here are the fish that the teibos are targeting

they’re just finding any reason to bury their face into oono’s chest (◔_◔) I’m not jealous or anything

I hope you take some time to appreciate some of the sfx in the chapter, they do take time but I do believe that they add to the story and atmosphere. So here are some cool sfx, thanks to Belt and DarkStalls™.

Also I said that I was going to buy the volumes to scan last month but I was a dummy and read the availability status wrongly or I could be holding the volumes in my hand now. I just ordered the 7 volumes which should be here next month which should work out nicely since there’s one more chapter for Volume 6 then we’ll scan and use the physicals for Volume 7 onwards and then redo the earlier volumes after we catch up. Sorry for the longer and longer time between each chapter released, life is pain and we’re all busy with school or work.

Thanks to Songbird, me, Belteshazzar and DarkStalls™ and see you next chapter.

Deserted Island Part 1 [03/02/2021]

Start of the Deserted Island Arc and 3rd last chapter for Volume 5. Tbh this chapter was stalled for about a month because I lost all motivation for typesetting it. Thanks dark for doing most of the work <3.

After finding out about the gloriousness of my local bookstore and the high quality images debinding and scanning a manga results in, we are planning on buying the physical volume of Volume 6 and 7 to scan them. Hopefully it restocks in the store soon… Scanning is a bitch though, took me ~3 hours to get through scanning a volume. Tested scanning on an old Food Wars tank that I got from Japan a long time ago and a new Danberu Vol. 11 that I bought at the bookstore the other day. Went pretty well, especially for danberu since the raws ripped from urasunday sites we were using are super shit.

Yom’s tights book and kuroboshi papa’s new artbook (´ρ`)

Here’s the difference between the raws we had from urasunday and the scanned version.


The site compresses the images so if you view image in new tab it doesn’t show the true quality ;-;

But yeah the difference in quality was immediately noticeable, screentones that were destroyed in image compression in their site, destroyed line art etc. The teibou raws we are using now thanks to Rusty are not as bad as the danberu ones but could be better. (It could always be better, scanned raws will always give the best quality) and after realising that I have access to physical japanese manga and a printer/scanner that can scan up to 9400dpi, I obviously wanted to use scanned physical raws for all our projects. Not sure how many readers might even notice the difference in quality, this is just to satisfy myself.

Now on to the chapter, fun as always. You might have known that the town that they live in is modeled after Ashikita Town in the Kumamoto Prefecture, where the author had lived in. Here’s a map of the locations from a twitter user and some examples:

If you can tell from the map, yes the island they’re fishing in is modeled after a real location! I went into google earth and looked around, (I might be wrong about the fishing port but) here’s some screenshots:

Chapter 28
Here’s the fishing port that they departed from!
Chapter 29
and here’s the island from google earth!

You can see the similarities in the pictures, from the island docking area (?) not exactly sure what they’re called, and those rings. My guess is they’re fish farming facilities.

and it is really close to the fishing port! only about 1.95km from the fishing port.

Prez is always forgetting stuff but it’s a nice gateway to teaching Hina more ways of fishing. I just a young’un so I don’t have experience fishing at all so I can’t comment on how accurate the information is. But Hina’s fishing for mackerel’s this chapter, but instead of using bait, Hina has to use a sabiki hook and a metal jig. As usual, Hina has trouble fishing initially but learns that fishing takes adapting and figuring out yourself, one must change how one fishes in different conditions. But her growth compared to when she just started is always heartwarming. And well that’s what hobbies are all about, constantly learning and improving yourself and having fun while you’re at it.

They introduce the concept of fish shelves, “drag” and how to fish for mackerels with sabiki jigs and flounders.

horse mackerels
sabiki jig
funny lookin flounder

And they’re all still using the felt doll keychain to identify their bottles, cute!

And finally Hina has qualms taking a piss in the dirty traditional toilet. The image of Natsumi taking a dump in the grass is nice though.

Thanks to Songbird and Darkfire for their work, and see you next chapter which probably won’t be for a while since I’m back at school, Dark is also busy with school and our other projects and Belt’s monitor is broken. ┐(´~`)┌ welp
