Greetings, fellow Mitsudomoe fans. Today is a very special day indeed, for it marks the  tenth anniversary of a truly great and wonderful series. 🙂

On this day, ten years ago, Mitsudomoe debuted in Weekly Shonen Champion with a still  young and (in her own words) “inexperienced comedian” Norio-sensei starting her second series roughly a year after working on her first manga, Kodomo Gakyuu.

Mitsudomoe makes its debut in Weekly Shonen Champion.

The world had no idea about the levels of insanity this series had to offer; Initially a manga with very simple art and a brand of humor that would catch a reader’s attention one way or another, it has since evolved into a very well-rounded series that can handle both comedic and dramatic moments with ease.

You can even see how much Norio-sensei’s art style has improved over the years.

Each member of the quirky cast eventually got fully-developed, being given backstories that explain their weird behavior. It’s gotten pretty deep for a series whose chapters are mostly limited to just 8 pages, garnering huge followings both in its home country of Japan as well as the Western part of the world thanks to the Anime Fansubbing and various Scanlation groups.

All-in-all, the series has come a long way, and all the love it gets is certainly well deserved.


 

Wow, I didn’t even realize it’s been a FULL DECADE of wild, crazy, over-the-top antics courtesy of our favorite triplets. It’s certainly been a fun ride, and I hope the good times never stop. 🙂

I’ll continue to work on this series for as long as I can, with the goal of closing the wide gap in releases between the various scanlation groups that have worked on this awesome series, eventually catching up with the manga as well as tackling other forms of Mitsudomoe media I may come across.

I hope you guys stick around for the fun times as well; here’s to many more years of Mitsudomoe! Keep up the good work, Norio-sensei! 😀

Floating Sunfish out!

    For sure has been a long, but satisfactory journey, since the day I knew this show (recommended to me at some old 2008 forum as a “Kodomo no Jikan-clone” which ofc isn’t true at all). I really can’t believe today being already 10th since it started! We’re really getting old and all that :-P.

    And ofc i’ll try to support you as long as i can, with fresh raws, or even i’m starting to consider getting tank volumes, proving that we can last enough to reach Volume.14 translation. We really have to try, and i’ll do my best to keep this up from my side.

    To Mitsudomoe fan community, every help is welcome. We really want to get this to a good end, and keep getting the most updated information to you guys. But just a team of 2 or 3 persons can’t last too much. We need your help in whatever you guys can. Raw material buy & scanning, raw cleaning and enhancing, typesetting and even an extra pair of translation hands would do it and is welcome.

    In any case, many thanks to Sunfish almost one-man team, to bring us our beloved show in a language that everyone can understand and enjoy. Many thanks for your effort and time.

    Greetings.
