OMFG please keep your distance because I'm about to EXPLODE (with joy) and I'm sure you don't want to have that mess all over you!! *explodes*
GUYS!! There's a THIRD AND FOURTH FAKE Backstage Pass doujinshi! WTF OMFG lkjhgfds"§$%&/! I'm dying O.O
I mean I already knew there would be a third one... but now even one more!! Gah!! How am I going to survive this?! xD

Anyway... ahem... trying to be more serious now. Here's the cover for BSP 4:



I found it on tumblr, on the blog of this lady here: http://saiayoko.tumblr.com/
Apparently, she's the one who buys the japanese mangas in the first place, so a BIG, HUGE thank you to her (if she sees this). Nosy and impatient as I am, I already asked her if she knows when she will post the scanlations of the two (!!) doujinshis. (Yes, I like to annoy people, at least when it's about FAKE. And I have no regrets! >:D) Let's hope she replies soon! :)

*explodes too*

*bouncebouncebounce* So excited! I can't wait to see them, I just really WISH they'd get published in translation, I so want manga that I can hold and read and stare at! If not for you, I wouldn't even be able to read the first two Backstage Pass stories, my computer refuses to download the files.

More FAKE makes life worth living!

Same here! Well you could buy the mangas in Japanese :'D

Ah Computers suck! But I'm always glad to help! ^_^ Of course, I'm going to upload BSP 3 & 4 as well, as soon as the scanlations get published (God I can't wait! *-*)

Me either! I'd buy the manga in Japanese if I knew where I could get them. I could copy the English translations from online and memorise what they're saying....

Yeah that's the problem with Japanese mangas - they're usually sold on Japanese websites where people like us don't understand a word! :'D (I'm seriously planning to take a Japanese class once I finally have a job and make some money - it would be so useful in situations like this to know some Japanese!)
Nevertheless, you could give Amazon or Ebay a try...

It took me long enough to get the 7 original translated volumes from ebay, they hardly ever appeared. I never saw a single Japanese copy though. I wonder if one of my other friends in America would know...

I found some FAKE copies on the Japanese page of Amazon - even the Drama CDs! *-* Sadly not the doujinshis, though. (And I don't even know if international costumers can buy there xD)
Anyway, here it is: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_ja_JP=%E3%82%AB%E3%82%BF%E3%82%AB%E3%83%8A&url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=FAKE
(just scroll through the search results and you'll find some FAKE stuff)
Most of it is second-hand, though...
And here's some more: http://www.amazon.co.jp/s/ref=sr_pg_2?rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3ASanami+Matoh&page=2&keywords=Sanami+Matoh&ie=UTF8&qid=1395870420

Thanks, I'll take a look. The trouble is, importing things is costly and I'm on a budget!

This is why I miss living in San Diego. I used to go to a local Japanese book store and they would order it for me and call me when it arrived, and they didn't charge much more over the conversion from yen to USD. That's how I got the re-issue of FAKE with the extras and then HUG with the start of FAKE Second (and how I ended up being the scanner for most of that scanlation project).

Then they opened this used bookstore in the same shopping center, which is how I managed to collect the original Japanese books for $1 each. LOL!

Btw, did you ever ask if I could email you the files?

Anyway, as I'm stuck with no way to get these things from Japan anymore, I'm still anxiously waiting for BSP3 to be scanlated, and now there's a 4th?!? *does happy dance*

More Dee and Ryo yumminess!!!!

Oh yeah, I forgot - I still see the English version of FAKE in stores around here (ok, the US English version). You did say to ask one of your other American friends, didn't you?
Mar. 27th, 2014 11:51 am (UTC)
I do have the original 7 volumes (very well read by now, lol). They live beside my bed for frequent re-readings, probably the most precious of all my books, and that's saying something!

It's just everything that comes after that I haven't got, and I don't think any of that was published in English, was it?

Mar. 27th, 2014 12:33 pm (UTC)
No, nothing after has been published in English and even if I wish it would I doubt it. Right now FAKE Second seems to be sold like a Dickinson which means no chance of English licensing. And they are harder to find to buy online too. Which is why I miss my little bookstore in Mitsuwa. There was once a great place to order find online but that shut down even before I moved from San Diego.

Do you need me to start emailing you files? Email me if you do.

Mar. 27th, 2014 02:21 pm (UTC)
Yes please, I'll email you!
Mar. 27th, 2014 04:05 pm (UTC)
I was debating ordering the manga through a shopping service, but it never occurred to me to check if Mitsuwa would order it for me. I live by the one in Chicago and we totally have a bookstore inside. I don't know why I never thought of that before. I feel all sorts of stupid at the moment.
Thank you for this brilliant idea. I may have to try it out this summer.
Mar. 27th, 2014 11:46 am (UTC)
Ummm, no, I never asked, it never occurred to me! Sometimes I'm not very bright... Would it be possible? *begs like a cute puppy/kitten/fluff*

I got all 7 volumes off ebay, the translated versions, but everything else I can only read on the internet, which is sad. I'd kill to be able to print the rest out and just read off the page. *sigh*

I wonder if there's anywhere that might import over here. I'll have to ask around.

Soooooo excited to hear BSP 3 and 4 will be scanlated soonish. I heard about 4 a month ago, maybe? And I was all sorts of annoyed I couldn't find 3 online anywhere. Super super excited now. :)
I would love physical books, and still may order the BSP series in dead tree format eventually. But I am starting to use the shit out of my Kindle. It makes it easier to read manga on my breaks at school, haha. I mean, I just reread Yami no Matsuei during standardized testing week at my school, and definitely got a few looks, but my coworkers should know I'm special by now. ;) But with an ereader, I can camouflage as a real adult. Now I just need to find scans of the orginal volumes and Second Season to complete my collection...

*does happy dance*
Well, I asked the people who run the small local Japanese store here how do they get things delivered from Japan, and I was given a few of those shopping services that they prefer. And now... I OWN BSP 3 & 4!!!! I got it yesterday.

Just as soon as I can get my scanner working, I'll be sharing the sexy! :) I'm working on translating right now.

Re: *does happy dance*
OH MY GOOOOD! I can't wait! *__*
You lucky girl, you! :D
