Fukushima Haruka’s Chocolate(manga) Preview!

Nakayoshi July 2009 issue cover featuring a character from Fukushima Haruka’s new serialization, Chocolate.

So I was looking around the Nakayoshi site and I stumbled upon the the previews and saw that they have put up a preview for the new serialization, Chocolate and I wanted to share it to you guys! 😀 And also some thoughts regarding the matter xD

The scans are in the jump! Scans are (c) to Nakayoshi and it’s rightful owners. 😉

To tell you the truth, when I first saw the preview I was shocked. Wasn’t the heroine’s hair supposed to be black? or something along those lines was what I was thinking. I don’t really understand the concept of the premise but this should be first love and love triangle right? Since the premise does say ‘..who has yet to know how to love..’ and there are 3 characters.

Gahh! I’m confused! >.<

Anyways, on with the raws/preview:



Notes: I was too lazy to try and translate everything so I’ll just translate the dialouge in the last panel. I don’t know if the translations are correct so feel free to correct me. ^^ or anybody wants to translate this..? *puppy dog eyes*

first bubble: Ne..

second bubble: Are you in love right now..?

third bubble: Ha?

lol When I was reading that I literally lol`ed at my seat! well, apart from the kyaaa~ -ing X3I think this manga’s going to be interesting so I  can’t wait for it >u< And hopefully someone will scanlate this. Nyahahahaha~ >:3

    ahahaha. Your translation just made that last page even better!!! xD

    I’m super surprised that we have a Fukushima heroine with blonde (and not orange) hair for once…it’s been rather uncommon lately. Though of course there is the cute little boy with orange hair…

    At first this series didn’t seem like anything new, a cheerful heroine, a love triangle with probably a childhood friend a cute mysterious transfer student. But the last page dialogue made things really interesting~ >D

    Ooo, this seems really cute and interesting. I skimmed through your last post regarding it and thought the same then, too.

    lol Catching a boy falling down the stairs. Now that’s a way to pull in your attention. xD
    I’m curious about the title, too…cuz I luv~ chocolate. lol

    Hmm, yesh, I think I might try it out to see how it goes. Thanks for the post! ^^

    My first impression of this was that I like the art a lot better than AAA, especially the eyes. ❤

    Thanks for the last page translation! Aha, I wouldn’t mind even if it is a love triangle. And if Suusuu is right and there’s a childhood friend involved… nyaha, I know who I’d be rooting for. ;D

    You don’t know how disappointed I was with Orange Planet ;___;

    Yayy~ When I read the preview, all I did was [attempt] to translate the last page as well. xD Glad I got pretty much the same result as you, I guess I’m not Japanese fail after all. 8D What I didn’t get was why the title is in hiragana… the word “chocolate” isn’t Japanese, is it? I thought foreign words were supposed to be katakana, not to mention manga titles in general are usually katakana. Meh oh well. Perhaps I’m being Japanese fail again. XD

    I believe Divine Sanctuary plans to pick this up, because when I looked on Mangaupdates today, there was a second summary by them. x)

    Regarding the manga in general, the art is different. The eyes are more round, there isn’t as many hair lines all over the place. xD While I liked the more squareish-eyes of Orange Planet & AAA, I’m glad there isn’t hair everywhere in this new manga. x) And finally, a heroine with a hair colour that’s not orange. xD I think Fukushima Haruka likes the foreign non-japanese type characters… that’s why you never see a heroine with black hair. =w=;;

    lol, the beginning looks cute, but I dunno, I don’t really see how this is gonna go beyond a one-shot? But interesting beginning, and… Who knows? Maybe the rest of the chapter will surprise me. =D
