((Okay, the images should be fixed now, so I hope you'll actually be able to enjoy what I've put so much work into.))

It's time to give back to the community that has given me so much enjoyment!

Following the cut will be most of a story from Yoshiaki Sukeno's Binbougami-ga! series appearing in Jump Square (a monthly manga anthology from the folks who bring us Shounen Jump and Shonen Jump USA.) This is from the July 2009 installment, which conveniently has two separate storylines. (14 pages from a 45-page installment, in a 700 page magazine.)

I have not seen this manga before, and my Japanese is very very weak, but here's what I've managed to gather. The girl with the headdress is the eponymous Binbougami. In Japanese folklore, a sudden downturn in your financial status is caused by the Bimbo no Kami, the god of
poverty, coming to crash at your pad for a while. While not usually depicted as particularly hostile to humans, he's a lousy houseguest. Why this spirit has been moe-fied as a flat-chested teenage girl with a hypodermic needle attached to her arm is at this time beyond me. The stuffed bear critter is Kumagai, with "kuma" being Japanese for "bear." Their archenemy is Ichiko.

That said,

I've cut the title page to help bring this under the limit, and because it doesn't advance the plot.

Following this is a wrap-up page on which Kasumi (the girl with glasses) describes her adventure to an increasingly perplexed classmate, and wishes her protector well. Unfortunately, the very
last panel reveals that Binbougami has returned to her couch potato, pudding cup-hogging ways.

The main story of the chapter has the entire extended cast heading off to the public baths; naked hijinks ensue. I'm sure it will show up on a scanlation site somewhere eventually.

If this post goes well, I may show some scans from other stories in the same issue--the "Mama wants to hug you" scene from "Embalming: The Another Tale of Frankenstein" is...interesting.

Maybe it's a horror book. I maximize the window on my 1680x1050!!!! monitor, and all I see is a gigantic open mouth. Frightening.

I'm sorry. I can't see these scans. They're too large. :|

Could you please resize them?

Use tinypic and on the scroll bar. Pick either 800x600 (15-inch monitor or 1024x768(17-inch monitor) and it should re-size. :)

Example: 1024x768(17-inch monitor)

Unfortunately, some of them are now missing. Can you resurrect them?

Arkgh! I meant "She's", not "the's". How did I make such a typo?
