Hakaiju – Chapter 7 Completed!

hakaijuu_c7-09

Yesterday, the completed translation of Chapter 7 was put up on Batoto and a few other sites I’m sure, and it feels great.

The pacing of the story is intense and lives up to the expectations of the suspense genre with ease. Especially with all the multiple-story tall genocidal monsters hunting you down like it’s going out of fashion.

Today, my dear old friend and co-resident writer Donny (aka DDK and DPRK) has turned the wonderful of 43 this year. To all friends and readers who appreciate the hard work he does, feel free to contact him on his social media sites and give him your best wishes!

Instead beating around the bush and abusing the tag system as per Moe-Alt tradition, I thought that I would partake in the “pure” lily that is the Yuri sub-genre of romance manga and use the tag properly. I can’t say that Hatsukoi Kouzoushiki was really the best start, but we all have to start somewhere!
