Hey, /a/, it's been a long time since I last dumped a manga I translated. So here's a short web manga I just finished. I think it's pretty damn good for an amateur work and hope you guys will like it.
Oh yeah, please tell me if you find any mistakes.
oh no is she cheating on the fatty too or does he love her regardless?
Sorry, you'll have to read on and see it for yourself.
>fat self insert
no wonder /a/ loves it
>fatty going for the slut
And nothing of value was lost today.
>all of /a/
That being said I'm just waiting to see how they end up together, cause they're both in the gutter?
>>fatty going for the slut
I guess that's one way to summarize the manga.
not only is he fat but he stalks too? he deserved being robbed
Is this hosted anywhere?
Ah, so the first page is a preview. I'm glad that it'll turn out sweet.
I think. That Boom is ominous.
You have no idea what stalking is, do you?
Not yet, sorry, I just finished it. Haven't even uploaded it to my mediafire folder yet.
You know what's kind of sad? He probably well knows that she's just using him, but he's okay with it. Can't tell if that's nice, beta or just stupid on his part.
He's nice, beta and stupid.
Ah yes, the coiled poop man. One of Disney's classic mascots.
Every second captcha I get is a Greek philosopher. Parmenides, Pythagoras. I hope I get Platon next.
>the coiled poop man
>the coiled poop man
i lost it.
So is this /a/ spends a day being friendzoned: The manga?
He's not even inside her friendzone right now.
I bet the fatty is the first one to ask her something about herself.
>all the other women are flat out ugly
>they all gossip about the pretty one meanly
I'm getting very tired of this cliche.
Possible. Even her friends seem to only care about how she gets all the guys.
Why don't you translate something good OP instead of this shit?
Joking, thanks for your contribution faggot
mfw i see this in real life sometimes.
You got to wonder how those guys did it. or if those girls are gold digging, blind, or some how broken
In romance manga, it's the bigger cliche that all women are beautiful and have different stereotypical characters as if they were out of a dating sim imo.
holy hell that cup is MASSIVE
This manga shows you how. Seriously though, it's not all about looks.
Wow, it's twice as big as in the previous panel. Oh well, it's an amateur work after all.
do you have a .zip of this?
I live in a redneck area and it's like everyone around here is completely lacking standards. I've seen hambeast women with /fit/ guys, and 10/10 women with bearded fatasses who wear hunting-orange casual clothes. More likely than not, fatass with fatass, scooting around walmart hand in hand blocking the frozen food aisle off.
But the ratio of weird relationships with one ugly and one hot is pretty high.
If everything's okay and there are no huge mistakes, I'll upload it into my mediafire folder later.
There are standards other than physical.
In this day and age its hard to come to terms with that.
because it's such a rare thing
fatty broke a vintage figure! unforgivable sin
WTF THAT GUY
What is going ON in the final panel?
Nah, it's very common. It's being honest about it that's rare.
Yeah, it seems like the mangaka likes adding surreal strange scenes into the background. Kinda reminds me of Punpun.
>rained so hard it killed a guy
How long is this, anyway?
72 pages. Considering how packed each page is, I guess it's not that short.
>happy to breath the same air...
this is fucking sad,
/a/ don't be like this guy. Takes PAM to a whole new level. he better get his shit together and show that slut whos boss.
I have a good friend who is into "big girls" and when he mentioned "big" I was thinking fat and chubby or husky. Until i met her that is. She was a mini hambeast but according to everyone who hung out with her she is a bro and has a great personality
exhibit A of 90% of girls
you're the boss!
That's more of a fetish though. He's attracted to them on a visual level because he likes that kind of thing, if she just happened to have a nice personality it's a coincidence.
So she's a fat midget?
Don't worry, we'll hang in there somehow.
this is so sad and relateable
even a slut to the mascots.. how slutty can she be?
pathetically beta failure since he doesn't have the money to spare.
how can you suck at pushing boxes?
but since this is a self insert for /a/
my guess is he will some how win over the slut via white knighting magically converting her into a pure maiden...
Fact Check: once a slut always a slut
christ, that's depressing just to look at
with the power of video games, I also hope he catches a break soon, maybe become a fat Kaisho.
I don't know man, people change, sometime for the worse or better, she couldn't have been a slut from the start, and depending on how the story plays out she might not for long.
Hey Boon, why do you like to scanlate this kind of shit? Please go on.
Man, that first panel is something. You said this was an amateur? Is this a non-published work on just a webpage? Cause that evokes an incredible mood, I love how the rain looks like shading, how everything is so dark, even with the streetlights up above.
Where can I read or download this for later?
>she couldn't have been a slut from the start
well no shit, babies generally aren't sluts. But once you reach a certain age and you've been the same kind of person your whole life, it becomes concrete. You're just stuck that way.
I used to try to incite change in people. I'd befriend assholes and degenerates, or rather they'd befriend me. I dunno, they were drawn to me or something. I'd always be the voice of reason in their insane lives until I couldn't put up with it anymore and cut off contact. They'd say things to make me think they were becoming a better person, but then their actions wouldn't change. I gave up and became a shut-in myself because I didn't know how to have a relationship with normal people.
Thanks as always, TLfag.
If you mean web manga, it's because it's free and legal because it's available to everyone anyway. If you mean "realistic" romance manga like this... I don't know. I like manga with a relatable main protag.
amateur artists experiment more, professionals try to stick to their established style so as to not piss off the fans.
eh, a strong enough shock is generally enough to get someone to reevaluate their life, from what I've seen personally they do complete 180 about half the time
the human mind is a weird thing
It depends on the definition of an amateur, I guess. As far as I know, the guy doesn't work for a manga magazine. He's got a website with a few oneshots, this being one of them, and a few longer ones.
I like the way mood is conveyed in this.
>Play Locazion 4
I've known bitches like that, trying to get all "friendly" in the workplace. It usually ends very bad. Her coworker was a wise guy telling her to stop with that shit.
wow sucks for you and looking at your rambling it looks like you got hit hard plus not your blog.
but anyways I'm not saying give everyone a second chance, but some people actually deserve it, it's up to you if you want to risk being a part of it.
/a/ - bitches and developmental psychology
I think this manga is from a time before the HDTVs and the PS3 and 4.
Yeah, and if it's just a personal project you're more able and willing to try stylistic things. It was just such a powerful panel in a very important part of the story. It looks perfectly miserable when it should be, with other people being almost absent when they're actually most of the scene. It's a cold and lonely panel of a crowded public space. It's great!
it is impossible to suck at pushing boxes for real the warehouse i work at is staffed mostly by the mentally infirm with the occasional cripple I will be glad to leave.
art kind of reminds me of freesia for some reason
/v/, pls. If she was any good at games, all this wouldn't have happened.
AW SHIT MOTHER FUCKING FATTY GONNA MAKE ALL THE BITCHES WET WITH HIS 420 NO SCOPE
>INB4 hamburman also gets destroyed
I had a friend who worked at a warehouse, he complained about getting paper cuts and sore backs cause they wouldn't let them use the lifts or something? Sounds like its not for everyone man either that or he was just really shitty at lifting and stacking.
Not true. If your flatbed has too much heavy shit or it's stacked too high to see what's ahead of you (as in the fat guy's case), you should opt to pull instead of push it.
I will say with some confidence that working with immigrants is worse than working with the retarded.
Speaking of panels/pages conveying moods well, I really like this page.
h-hey fatty your qt gf is dying are you gonna help her or what?
the only time I ever worked in a warehouse environment they gave us special gloves that were super grippy.
>moving dusty boxes all day
>not wearing gloves
asking for trouble.
>is this nigga seriously crying over a game fkin grl gamers
>"C-can you keep it down I'm trying to get the high score"
>u-uh btw my controller isn't charged s-sorry
wow legs wide open and everything.
nah picture of bullet shooting. Guy dodged a bullet of a whore.
OP CONFIRMED IT, IF GIRLS DONT WANT TO DATE FATASSES, ASSHOLES, OR JERKS THEY MUST GET GUD AT VIDEOGAMES.
>implying i don't work with both
but seriously people how don't understand bathing or in some cases how to read can do warehouse work how is the fat dude from the comic that bad
i hear you... but i don't.
guy isn't just fat, he is a huge pushover.
girl is cunt that doesn't really know what she wants.
well i guess it works out for them
RULES OF NATURE
even if you're joking, try to think how the author wanted to present the situation.
>no will to live
>shit at your job
>no one likes you
>come home and just want to play some god damn video games
>cant even beat that
And this is why this lard will get the girl cause he knows all the cheat codes.
she gave him the madcats controller, that's why he isn't helping
He's really good at that. The screen being the only real light source is not only really cool stylistically, it's reaaaally overt symbolism.
.... fuck, this hits to close to home.
Remember boys, Use your super move to get all the ladies wet.
God fucking damnit. Why did I even enter this thread......give me the happiness, OP! Quickly!
shit i actually went to youtube to play this and this manga just got 10 time more awesome
no, they're not both in the gutter.
the woman's a bitch but she still got the looks for her, while the fat japanese author-i mean protag doesn't have anything to brag about, if he doesn't pay her and she still want to spend time with him as a couple this story is -not better it's- worse than Twilight.
INB4 butthurt because "muh logic"
ahh god i'm hoping for some sort of terrible downer ending.
I can't take this pathetic fatty-kun gets decent looking girl type of fantasy. As if a girl as depressed as this would bother keeping up with her looks.
Sorry, guys, /a/ wasn't loading for me for a few minutes.
This shit is so depressing.
The "two losers get together" kind of story always makes me sad.
>tfw you caught up to uploader and have to wait
We need you Boon I'm afraid some of the weaker willed anons are going to give up hope quickly show them the fictional happy ending of fatty and bimbo-chan!
>The "two losers get together" kind of story always makes me sad.
>Because in real life there's never a second loser to get together with.
Feeling gratitude and impatience at the same time is a weird feeling.
There'll never be another looser for us, Anon.
When you come to terms with it, it hurts less, or at least it's nummer and easier to deal with day to day.
Is this fucking bitch crying?
What the fuck dude?
I know that feeling, except I'm pretty good at my job. I want to change, yet I end up slipping into my old ways.
Since it was presented as a metaphor, with the game being her life, I thought "I'm gonna die" was more her realizing that eventually the 'nameless mob" would overcome her. But this is nearly as depressing.
Okay guys level with me, a qt grill invites you to her house to play video games, and she starts crying because she's losing, what do you do?
If you've been having a shitty spell, the smallest of things can be straws to break a back.
This is bait, right?
well, all you have to do is to stop being a looser, you probably can't do it in 1 day but if you work har enough...
Don't say any more.
pass the controller sis
some bgm for this thread
I know that feel. I've been in bed reading this on my phone.. so much for getting some extra sleep
Oh god, their faces are fucking perfect in that last panel.
I know what you mean. I love him for posting these....but I hate him for not being faster.
>stop being a looser
"You need to tighten the fuck up," they say.
okay this metaphor's gone too far
Hey, it's (partly) because of captcha!
Only correct answer.
the loser is who I am. There's nothing I can do about that.
I'm sorry, Anon-chan. I just told the truth.
I love it.
And she turned the light on too. CMON. CMON.
>I'm very superficial and I believe everything!
ahahahah what is the author even trying to do anymore? aren't his two main characters the most superficial ones in this story?
goddamn i love it when they do that whole pan out and the world changes.
those soulless eyes of hers, also I'm not sure if it's because the majority of /a/ is still technically young or that I'm a Psych major but this shit should not be hitting you boys so hard, although I guess that just speaks to the author's ability to portray this feeling in his work. Hey Boon who was the artist name called again? I'd like to look into his other works, maybe you'll be interested in subbing his other pieces?
Yeah, they're superficial, but they overcome it. At least, she does.
they also say "get your shit tougether and stop being a whiny pussy, you're not a cute little shota!".
that's closer to /a/ than T.T.F.U .
I'll look for his website when I'm finished dumping.
irony I guess since they beated it meaning now they can be true or free or some shit who cares man its cute shit now.
time to stare at my shotgun for a few hours again
You can't understand if you haven't been there.
Notice the light fading away from both of them.
Confessions of a nerd.
>There's nothing I can do about that.
if you're happier like that no one can chage it, watch/rewatch xxcholic, it will help you.
...and that's it for today. Let me look for the mangaka's webpage.
Thanks for the dump OP.
this guy has guts i'll say that
People are paradoxes. Negative people especially. It's not hard to become superficial yourself if you think everyone else is superficial. You end up losing interest in other people and just slowly withdraw into yourself.
>should not be hitting you young boys so hard
Bro, a lot of us on /a/ are younger-middle-aged now, as depressing as that is. Plenty of us have lived relatively shitty/painful lives as well, which is why we take refuge here.
Not really surprising.
Cute, thanks for releasing stuff like this that I'd never run across otherwise.
It seems to me like they've bonded over neither of them having any self respect.
Dammit why can't I find that one page from punpun...
"a love made just so the two can lick each other's wounds...it's unsightly"
Or something along those lines.
This story is terrible
>...and that's it for today
Is this on your site already?
Thanks a lot pal.
Oh man...ya killin' me here OP.
anyone notice that fatty-kun has half his glasses broken and he still manages to play better than her? maybe she should have started off on normal mode keh.
Is this the Japanese version of Chris-Chan lite?
OTL, orz are meant to be people on their hands and knees.
I ask this just about every other manga thread, but are there any non-shoujo romances that have absolutely no bullshit forced drama at all?
Excepting Bonnouji/anything else by that author, Itoshi no Karin, Ore Monogatari, and Yandere Kanojo, all of which I have read/am reading.
Thanks for the dump, OP.
I just can't take this shit guys. I'm having some of the best laughs I've had all day reading this thread.
There's nothing deep going on but everyone is in an uproar pretending they've seen something amazing.
Thanks for the dump though boon. Work is always appreciated.
no cause no house burned down at the end.
>these things always end at the turning point, like "everything's gonna be okay now"
>but you never get to read a few more pages consisting of their happy new life together
>there is no proof everything was okay
>you just have to believe it was, because it's implied
>but all your experience says it didn't end well and your brain won't let you enjoy the ending of the story
Thanks OP, nice translation
Well there are the first two pages where it's months later and they're still together and happy.
finding depth is something that isn't necessarily that way by design reflects something about oneself
nice shitposting/"holier than thou" attitude though
most people are getting all sad that there's no QT loser for them to date, I donno what thread YOU'RE readin
This. So fucking much.
Why does anime/manga always end right as they get together?
Okay, so here's his website:
Apparently, he has several free oneshots and pay-to-view series on it. I haven't looked into his other stuff yet, maybe there are other gems hidden there.
The zip-file should be up now in this folder:
They always leave it on a happy end but every sequel takes place after the break-up. Food for thought.
bonnouji, ore monogatari, itoshi no karin, yandere kanojo
I'm looking for more man
then you go back to 3DPD and realise that the only way for this to happen would be for the guy to have a solid 900 millions on the bank
great I can't read moon guess I'll have to wait until you translate another thing thanks again Boon.
from beta to beta lite
good job fatty
now go hit the gym
Please don't be that way anon.
Oh crap, it was the OPM folder. I meant to copy-paste this one:
The beginning pages are the "everything is okay now." I'm not too sure why he took that track, but I guess it lets him end on a high note. Still, I think it robs us of a denouement and takes some of the suspense out of the story. But then again, it was a comfort throughout...
Either way read the first two pages, they're a cute and close couple, even using that clear plastic umbrella together that she bought that night.
i can't afford to go out with a sugar mentality, i would be the happiest guy in the world if something like this could happen but reality is not this kind.
Good translation overall, but the way OP translated the title is a little too "clever" for my taste (given that the original title doesn't seem to be a reference). I'd just render it "The Fatty and the Beauty", personally.
Gave me eye cancer/10.
Found this on his illustrations page. I should add it to the zip-file.
potao: the manga.
Going back to read the first two pages again puts a smile on my face. Well, time for bed.
well I believe he did it as a hook, where we all asked "how did this fatty get with this girl?", and then we stayed to read their story.
I bet if it started with the girl and the cheating scandal most of you would have bailed.
Yeah, probably true. It softened much of the harder aspects of their character arcs.
Thanks for the dump and translations. Will you be translating any more of his work? They look interesting.
why is potato being posted
>mfw I felt really clever when I came up with the title
games coming up
It IS pretty clever.
I feel like hambeast is a 4chan/internet term which may or may not be your intention.
Thanks for doing this, it was a good read.
I remember it being used on websites back in like '99, so I would say it is definitely not just a 4chan thing.
I translate primarily with /a/ in mind, so I guess it's okay.
It's a good title, I just feel it's not as good a *translation* as the more straightforward one I posted. But I know how it goes when you're translating and come up with a particularly clever wording-- it's really hard to let go.
don't blue ball me you bastard
In case you missed it.
thats only what he posted, it isn't more chapters
dammit OP, I come here to kill such feelings
>they didn't fuck
Killing yourself will solve that.
Additionally you get to join you're waifu in 2D-verse.
Boon, if you're in here, check this out. I don't know if it fits your taste, or if it's actually any good (can't read Jap), but the summary sounds nice.
Thanks for the story OP.
You give fat weebs with shit jobs like me something to read on a shitty evening.
