Happy Birthday Futaba Yoshioka! (19 June)
Ao Haru Ride ~Dreamcast~
Mabuchi Kou ; Okada Masaki
Yoshioka Futaba ; Kiritani Mirei
Narumi Yui ; Nounen Rena
Kikuchi Touma ; Chiba Yuudai
Kominato Aya ; Yaotome Hikaru
Murao Shuuko ; Takei Emi
Makita Yuuki ; Ohara Sakurako
Tanaka Youichi ; Mukai Osamu
This is just building up on Fu/Kou one I did earlier, and is based on aesthetics alone - most of them have already suggested before, but here is all of them in one place <3
Kou drawn by Aruko sensei for Sakisaka sensei …
It’s been a busy month for Sakisaka in regards to her workload - despite her taking a ‘break’ from AHR, she’s released a 40 page oneshot and a 17 page AHR collab with Aruko - so it’s not much of a break after all, is it? :)
Who else thought that Ore Raido was completely hilarious? I never could have imagined Kou having any of those expressions. Somehow, the pain of having to wait another month for the next ‘proper’ chapter has been eased quite a bit, in my opinion.
Regarding Sono Omo, a lot of people have been saying that Mako, the main lead, looks like Futaba with Narumi’s hairstyle. I think she looks like Futaba with Ninako’s hair, but in black. Chibi Manga are up for scanlating it, so look out for that.
Here are this month’s links so far in summary:
Thank you Shmook and missjupiter! Send them your thanks if you can!
Sono Omokage wo Shitteru:
Thank you so much to Bikkuri for coming out of her retirement to spare us one last translation for Sono Omo! Do send her a word of thanks on her post!
I assume that Volume 8 will only contain 3 chapters (Ch. 28, 29, 30) and Sono Omo as the additional oneshot to compensate for the page numbers (not sure about Ore Raido, though, if it’ll be also included in Ore Monogatari’s Vol. 3, since it’s a collaboration?).
Fear not, less than 29 days to Chapter 30!

Ahahaha, with all the excitement over E3 I totally forgot this happened. Well, Ore Monogatari and Ao Haru Ride have been crossing paths a lot lately, and now a fun collaboration with a Freaky Friday spin has been published! I was hoping for the other characters besides Kou and Takeo to interact, but it’s okay. I have a feeling Sunakawa and Shuuko would be very good friends (shiiiip?). Also, this one-shot confirms that the reason why Kou’s late to school a lot was because he played with his cat too much. Haha!
As always, thanks to Shmook for the RAWs!
Flash previews of Sono Omokage wo Shitteru and Ore Raido!! on Betsuma’s official website.
Can you guess who THAT person is??
This one-shot is HILARIOUS. Kou in hot pants (as far as I can see) and behaving waaaaayyyyy more enthusiastic than he usually is. I feel this one-shot somehow makes up for the absence of AHR Chapter 30 this month.

As usual, please credit me accordingly if you want to use the scans.
Unfortunately, it seems that we will not be getting a proper Ao Haru Ride chapter this month (ch. 30) in Betsuma’s July Issue (#7). According to a tweet by Sakisaka-sensei, there will only be her oneshot entitled “Sono Omokage wo Shitteru” along with her collaboration with Aruko’s Ore Monogatari!! entitled “Ore Raido” released this issue on 13th June.
Chapter 30 will be released in the August issue (#8) of Betsuma instead, in July.
Another AHR super short vid I worked on (am working on ?) for my pre-rotting days before I fully get to rot over summer…if I get to rot.
