Nozomi x Kimio Chapter 9

And we've caught up on another series. Though unfortunately, as stated previously, Nozomi x Kimio is on hiatus. You can find the full info about that, here. It wasn't in February's issue of the magazine either, so that makes it 6 issues now it hasn't been in. I'm more inclined to believe it's on hiatus rather than it having ended, as the last page in volume 1 points to more Nozomi.

I was originally planning on releasing a v2 of chapter 8 with this, but decided against it for the time being. The only real difference between the magazine release we first did and the tank version of the chapter is it doesn't have the ads as seen here, and no big Nozo x Kimi logo as seen here. I'll probably release the v2 of it without the ads/logo at some point, but for now, new chapter.

So I just noticed, this is the 250th chapter released that I've worked on. 1/4th the way to 1,000! \o/

Enjoy the release!

    1. I asked ER to scan the color in it, but at the moment I don't have much use for them. Probably use the cover in another way once I get around to making an actual new permanent credit page. Anyway;

  3. Hope I'm wrong, but with the way the chapter was written and the fact I don't see it on the site's series listing, it looks more like an official ending to me. Never was a real popular series.

    1. Yeah, the way the chapter itself was written somewhat implies it was a final chapter, but the last page of the volume (included in the release) implies it wasn't. I'd love to get my hands on that issue after chapter 9 that has some sort of announcement, but gotta wait until we have the money to spare to buy the issue.

    2. For me most of all, it's the last kanji that's used where it says end of v01. Maybe Pro could set it straight, but I don't usually see that kanji unless it means the end of a series. *shouts at pro across space & time*

    3. I assume you're referring to the bottom right of the second to last page in the release. That just says "Nozo x Kimi [1] End"

    4. Just looked it up on Amazon and it doesn't have it in the title, so guess I was over thinking that. Disregard.

  4. Will Renzokusei still be doing T-N-Kashiwagi? Simple-scans seems to have dropped it

    1. The project wasn't actually Simple's to begin with. The main group between the two of those was Village Idiot. Simple just broke the joint... for whatever reason.

      Anyway, yes. The series itself is a personal favorite of mine, and I was the one who restarted the scanlation at U-Prod last year. I just got the raws for the latest chapter today, actually.
