WE’RE NOT DEAD though Laena and Relle are out for the count. Jintori Game and Asuka2 are on hold until real life eases up a bit. For anyone waiting for those updates, we apologize! But we haven’t dropped the project yet.
Beaky and Random from Team Arinas, on the other hand, have continued to plow through their projects! We only have one release, but after a month, one is better than none at all.
Dragon Knights Gaiden
This is the backstory on how Kaistern first met Lykouleon. An interesting story, though it also brings up more questions than answered. Ohkami, why do you continue to do this to us!?
Apologies for the delay in releases–exams kicked ass. But we do have a holiday release for everyone from both teams!
Just a quick note: the JG releases will be of slightly different quality because I’m using scanned RAWs rather than the original caps from the site. Ironically, the original caps are of higher quality than the printed ones. So if you notice the difference…that’s why. The capped chapters will resume with Chapter 12. But this completes volume 1 and we’re onto volume 2!
Crossing of Stars
A cute little gaiden about how Lykouleon and Raseleane really met when they were (adorable) kids. Really cute! Enjoy and hope everyone is having a good holiday season!
Team Arinas has pulled through with another Dragon Knights Gaiden release, yay!
Dragon Knights Gaiden
One Day, Another Day
This is the very first Gaiden Ohkami made and it’s basically a day in the life at the Dragon Castle from Zoma’s perspective. It’s set early on, before the events that happened in volume 11 (it’s more like the timespan between 10 and 11). Hope you enjoy!
As mentioned in the last post, this is a pretty rough time for us with exams pounding our heads in, so it’s a miracle we even managed to get this release out. It’s not Jintori Game, which may or may not come out next week (it’ll depend if I’ll be able to work on the chapter), but it is Asuka2! I have a new scanner with a document sheet feeder, so I can now finally mass can all those stupid chapters I neglected because…well I didn’t like my old scanner |Da So Asuka2 is now officially off hiatus and placed along our current projects. I can’t guarantee how often we’ll release it — it depends how fast Relle can get translations done. Jintori Game is still our top priority, but expect more Asuka2 releases until we finish the volume. I’ve also updated the project pages to include some new “future” works we have on tap (just two more of Ohkami’s works) as well as updated the page for Jintori Game to include the cover of volume 2 and a list of all the current chapters.
But eh, who cares about all that mess. Here’s the link to the release!
Chapter 2: School Arc
Not sure if we’ll have a release next week, and if not I’ll save it for a larger release later.
Here is chapter 5 of Jintori Game! It was supposed to be released yesterday but I got distracted by Relle on another project. /cough.
As a heads up, chapter 6 may or may not be released next week. My new scanner should be coming in within the next day or so, but I also have exams for the next two weeks. I do have one (possibly two) Asuka2 chapters ready as a standby release, but I’ll see if I can push out chapter 6 next Monday. If not, it’ll come out soon, I promise!
But here’s today’s release:
Well it’s a small one, but no less special! Team Arinas has completed yet another gaiden for everyone:
Dragon Knights Gaiden:
It’s three stories in one, and all of them comical. First story features the Dragon Clan, the second has all the dragons, and the third focuses on Alfeegi, Reema, and Duma. They’re cute, so enjoy the read!
Also, quick note. These releases aren’t actually going in “order” of publication, but they’re stand alone anyway so it doesn’t really matter. Just in case you were wondering~
Happy Thanksgiving to all you American readers!
Just as scheduled, here’s Jintori Game Chapter 4! We’re moving at a good pace, and Chapter 5 will be released next Monday as planned, with Chapter 6 already translated and ready to be cleaned and typeset. We may even have a chapter of Asuka2, but we shall see~
ALSO! I’ve revamped the previous three chapters to make the editing format more streamlined. We also have a new credits page~ But along with the minor edits, Chapter 1 got a major makeover. I forgot to include a few pages, including a character sheet that came with volume 1. The front inside cover was also translated, and the back inside cover translation will be included in Chapter 6 as it makes references to things happening in chapters.
Since our releases are already on a number of online readers, if those who upload JG could (hopefully) reupload these chapters, that would be great. If not, that’s cool, too xD At least those who download it should at least snag Chapter 1 again to get those little extras!
Now for the links:
Chapter 1 [new extras included]
Chapter 2 [revamped]
Chapter 3 [revamped]
Chapter 4 **NEW RELEASE**
Sorry there isn’t a Dragon Knights Gaiden release, but I hear it should be out soon. So keep a look out for that!
It’s not every often that we can say 11/11/11, so we’re making this a big release. Happy Veteran’s Day!
It’s actually pretty amazing how well received Jintori Game was! It wasn’t originally planned, but as part of this special 11/11/11 release, we’re releasing chapter 3 a few days early! For the record, we’re going to aim for (hopefully) weekly releases for JG, possibly on Mondays or Tuesdays. But no real promises! Exams and holidays are coming up so it might slow progress down a bit. Expect chapter 4 in a week or so.
This release has some Dragon Knights related goodies as well as a oneshot Ohkami did right after DK finished its serialized run. We now have a oneshots page. This release also introduces the other half of the Reverein Scanlations team, Team Arinas! They’re the ones in charge of the Dragon Knights Gaiden while I’m part of the Team Dusis team, which primarily provides Jintori Game and other random things. You can read/see more about the two teams on our teams page. Hope you enjoy!

(Those were the last two I had on my hard drive, so until I get the rest scanned, this project is officially on indefinite hiatus)
This is going to be our last big batch for a while now that we’ve pushed out all of the outstanding files out of the way. From here on out, expect only Jintori Game and Dragon Knights Gaiden releases. Looking forward to the next release!
EDIT: WHOOPS. Accidentally gave the wrong link for DK Chibi Edition Part 4. It should be correct now!
Let’s not ask how long we’ve been, uh, not around. For those stumbling upon us for the very first time, we are a group that’s currently focusing on Mineko Ohkami’s other works. So if you’re a fan of Dragon Knights, then you’ve come to the right place! If you’re not…well we’re sure you’ll like her works, too.
We’re back with two new major projects:
Jintori Game and the Dragon Knights extras.
For this grand reopening thing, we’re putting the old links back up as well as provide two chapters of Jintori Game, all of which will also be provided in this post. The translations for Jintori Game Chapter 3 are finished, with Chapter 4 on its way, so expect another release in the next week or so. Also, BONUS! One of the one shots as well as two more of the DK Chibi Editions have translations, so those will be up soon, too. Hope you enjoy!

Also, we are currently seeking help, so if you love these works as much as we do and want to help, check out the Recruiting page for more details.
