Strange Gaku in Blue Update (of the Moon)

And by this title we mean this is an update with all-official releases from Gaku-Touhou (though there’s some doujin releases from Wings of Yuri). But if from that you assumed we would have a new chapter of Silent Sinner in Blue released, then I’m afraid you are wrong. We have three! That’s right, three new chapters of SSiB, plus two of Inaba of the Earth and Inaba of the Moon and the conclusion to the first volume of Strange and Bright Nature Deity. Not to mention the four more featured releases from Wings of Yuri… All in all, it’s one of the biggest updates we’ve had.

Official – Silent Sinner in Blue Chapter 16


Where were we? Oh, right, it’s Remilia’s turn to face Yorihime on the peach gardens. Meanwhile, Yukari and Ran sneak through the Moon’s seas and Yuyuko reenacts the Bible.

Official – Silent Sinner in Blue Chapter 17


As things are coming to an apparent climax at the “Moon Landing Site”, Yukari’s plan also seems to reach its final stage. (Note: This is a work from low-quality scans, it will probably be redone when better ones show up.)

Alternate Download

Official – Silent Sinner in Blue Chapter 18


Where everyone else failed, will Reimu at least make Yorihime break a sweat in their battle? (Note: Also a temporary LQ release.)

Official – Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth Chapter 24


When dawn comes and their princess is unaccounted for, Eientei stirs up like an anthill… made of rabbits. Lazy ones, mostly.

Official – Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth Chapter 25


Unexpected offworld visitors can surely liven things up at the Bamboo Forest.

Alternate Download

Official – Strange and Bright Nature Deity Volume 1 Extra


Tough being Gensokyo’s underdogs, but even prankster fairies should hear the Hakurei Priest and have some moderation when drinking.

All the releases below are works from Wings of Yuri.

Personal Color – Two by this side, three by the other side (Part3 Prologue)


After her relationship with Yukari is strained, Yuyuko decides to investigate the past.

Personal Color – Youmu & Yokan


A two-page short about Youmu enjoying her favorite sweets in the company of her mistress.

Iyokan & Water Cushion – Backyard Romantic


At night, the temple courtyard is so romantic.” (Warning: Some adult innuendo and situations.)

Room0016 – Forget-me-not


What makes some feelings so important when they are bound to be forgotten?


Thanks to Solamarle, Winterbraid, shijima, Arsen, Ruka, Mysterio006 and everyone else!

    Thanks a lot for another archival!

    The world always needs more YuyuYoumu… though I guess YukaReimu is all right too, as it keeps Yukari away from Yuyuko. 😉

    Anyway, I personally think Backyard Romantic is very good… even if in truth, I didn’t expect you to deem it worksafe enough to be released here. ^-^;

    Well, it has no major nudity or overly graphical scene, and it does have a beautiful story, so it seemed fine enough. (Plus, I’m a Mizutaki fanboy.)

    Sweet, now this will at least sastify those that were waiting for SSiB. Thanks for the huge release.

    btw, is Two by this side, three by the other side complete? I’m kinda waiting for it to be before downloading, lol.

    Thanks for the hard work!

    @ze: not yet, but it’s getting there. You can follow updates for it on Baka-Updates if you don’t want to go to solelo’s site (though there aren’t really many spoilers if you do).

    Now I’ve read through them all, and it’s probably much too late to say thank you very much. It’s greatly appreciated.

    Now my only two problems are waiting for news on Hisoutensoku and waiting for more SSiB!! I’m on teh edge of my seat and will be there until I see more!

    I don’t know if this has been mentioned but when I try to download some of the manga in this post, and from all previous posts I get a “500 internal server error” just felt I would say this and ask if anyone else has this problem, thanks in advance.
