  1. I Need to Return Them

    Today I finally took the time to finish reading "Mämmilä: Kiinalainen juttu. Sarjakuvia Suomesta" by Tarmo Koivisto (ISBN 978-951-1-22917-9).

    Good news for fans of Takako Shimura!!

    1. While I was busy elsewhere, a new scanlator called Houroumusume took over scanlating "Hōrō Musuko". She (or he; feminine and masculine pronouns are a pain for a Finn to begin with, but make even less sense in this very context) has done chapters 83 and 84, which are currently available on One Manga.
