The Facade Falls...

A lot of you commented about the new hottie in Gokusen Land... well, we'll all find out a little more about him in this new release. So go ahead and clickity-click on the links!

The poll is about to end. It's pretty much a one-sided battle but I'm very glad to see that Shinohara has some supporters. Dementedchris will also be eternally grateful for those who voted for the sensei. I'm curious though: Why did you vote for the sensei? You just might convert a few others to your camp. (Or in my case, it might lessen the gap in my 40-60 affection division between the two love interests. hehehe)

Also, the answer to DJ Mixerr's question about scanlating Volume 15 is a resounding YES! But we are now doing the releases in a chronological manner. Of course we want to work on Volume 15 immediately but we are trying to use what little EQ we have and postpone gratification by building up to that volume. So no worries. We'll all get there in as sanely a fast manner as possible.

Again, translation credits for this chapter goes to micchan. Kaoko has really been going all out since last week with that extra chapter edit, this week's release and the new layout we are all enjoying. So send lots of love her way again. (Current acceptable currency seems to be cookies. But it might have changed this week)

Enjoy!

Thanks muchly for the latest release.

Shin v Shinohara
I had to flip a coin. There are so very many reasons why Shin is a better guy for her. The biggest problem is that she's in love with Shinohara (who is also, unfortunately, more age appropriate at present - isn't Shin jailbait?!). Shinohara has his could-be-romantic, sweep-you-off-your-feet moments of utter suavity, and he almost says... something. And that's why we'd want to lean toward him. And Shin does have that too young, his father's big-time police, Kumiko can kick his butt thing holding him back. And still we want this boy to prevail. He's got a thing for teacher. And he's so sweet about being a manly man for her, mopping her up when she cries, and then helping her fix it (whatever it is).
The (slightly) older man or the adoring student just approaching the door to manhood - as I said, a coin-toss.

Oh! Thanks so much!
(I took a look at the Shin/Shinohara poll....poor Shinohara gets no love! Yet somehow, I can't feel unhappy with the results...)

*bows* big thanks for release :)

About Shin and Shinohara... *scratches head*... it's true Yankumi is in love with Shinohara though I don't get a feeling that he thinks of her as love interest... it's more like she is granddaughter of person who saved him so he feels gratitude and he shows politeness towards Yankumi who is very dear to her grandfather. Moreover Yankumi is afraid of showing her true self in front of Shinohara so Shin knows her far better... it's a pity when you can't show you all even in embarrassing moments and you have to act in front of person you love... in the end you feel more tired with that person than without him... *scratches head again*

And another good chapter! Uesugi is like an evil Shin, with his super good looks, intelligence, natural leadership role among his peers. But evil.

Shinohara has grown on me since we've learned more about his background (personally I will always prefer Shin, though). But the deciding factor for my vote is that Shin is clearly the better man for Kumiko. We've basically reached the point now where everyone but Kumiko realizes that!

thank you you all! Best wishes to you!

...i have to admit, i voted repeatedly. (sorry). i couldn't help myself. i suppose i got one for every IP address i picked up. shin!! although, technically speaking shinohara is more my type. older, stable job, aloof - sort of a mystery.

Kaoko thank you!! i send *virtual frappuccino*. (i'm currently having a craving.) and thanks micchan and myrya.

yay file!! so happy.

you guys rock!
cheers for this chapter. :]

haha
Shin is the landslide winner. of course, no one's good enough for Yankumi but only him! hehe

mint said...

ahhhh i'm so grateful that it hurts!!!! <3 (i think it's love i feel towards this great great scanlation group^^)

I voted for shin so i(we) could have shinohara for myself(ourselves) xD

lyndia-parker said...

Thank you for a new chapter. As for the poll, I will always vote for Shin because he is a better person for Kumiko. I think she is too awed by Shinohara that it is very hard to be her dense/goofy/crazy self around him. True that there is that age gap between Shin and Kumiko but in the long run, it would turn into nothing. When you get to, say 40, couple of years different means nothing at all. OK, end of my rambling!

Julia said...

I mean, I voted for Shin because it's adorable to watch him get all flustered and frustrated over his love for the densest person ever, Yankumi. Not to mention that even though he doesn't seem like a yakuza type of guy, he fits in absurdly well with the Ooedo group. I mean, Shinohara seems like a really decent guy, and he's very cool, but he's been with the group for years, and he knows (probably, right?) about Yankumi's feelings for him, but he's never done anything to encourage them, or reciprocate them. He's really a suave, handsome guy, to borrow somniel's words, but .. Shin is cuter, and he just would work much better with Yankumi. Plus, he's won my heart--Shinohara's only in the series once every couple of chapters, but Shin is there *much* more frequently. XDD

Thank you for the next release! I can't wait to read it.. :DD

Thank you so much for continuing Gokusen...!!!

I can't wait for more releases^^

Liliane said...

Thanks a lot again :)

Rekka said...

Yay, another release! I didn't realize I was addicted until I started suffering withdrawal. *puts more cookies on the altar of BiPuro as an offering*
And it looks like it's Shin for the win! He may be jailbait now, but at least he's committed. Shinohara still seems like he'd fit better in a domestic soap opera drama. (The guy needs to punch out a few more people before I change my mind.)

Lisa said...

dang. I would have voted in the poll except I couldn't remember who Shinohara was until after it was closed.
Anyway, my vote was for Shin :3

I agree with somniel's explanation.

Shinohara seems too much like a "Mr. Nice Guy". Women g e n e r a l l y don't want Mr. Nice Guys, they want Mr. Cool and Dangerous...although Yankumi can def kick any guy's butt. Even though he's tough and involved in the Yakuza and everything... he's boring ._.

Shin, on the other hand, recognizes Yankumi's independence. You can see that he pays a lot of attention to her (although the others don't pick up on it). Even in this latest installment, Shin was the only one to ask Yankumi why she had the scary expression on and where she was going when she ran away. He was the first to recognize her fighting ability/background, he's the one who went to rescue her when she was kidnapped, etc.

I also agree with Julia about Shin's adorableness when frustrated :]

andd finally -- THANKS much for this chapter. seriouslyseriously I wish I could help you translate but you'll have to wait until I take Japanese in college ;x

DJ Mixerr said...

Thank you, BiPuro for answering my question. (Arigoto) :-)
Also, I would like to credit micchan for translating all recent Gokusen RAWS and chapters. And I hope kaoko can edit that special chapter too. Good luck. Peace. ^__^)))

HOORAY
IVE ALWAYS BEEN ADICTED TO GOKUSEN
thanks 4 the release ....
i cant wait 4 the next 1
:->

Ximen said...

Thanks again! You guys are amazing! Every week a new chapter comes out. It's really too much to even hope for, and yet it happens every week without fail. Sometimes early, even.

For me the Shin vs. Shinohara thing comes down to Shin being the one who is willing to change his life for her. Shinohara seems to like Yankumi, but he's just not willing to take the step of dating a yakuza ojou. Shin seems to be willing to do what it takes. Now if only she noticed...
