Happy Cafe Vol. 5 is out now, earlier than listed on Amazon, so you check your bookstores! In this volume, we get the first appearance(s) of Inoue, Shindou's best friend (Uru: "You have a best friend! Someone outside of this place actually likes you!"), and the manager, as well as the special chapter of the main cast ten years ago. Unfortunately, I've noticed there are some of the usual Tokyopop slipups where some of the dialogue is placed in the wrong bubble, so bear that in mind while reading.

Meanwhile, Vol. 6 is slanted for release at the end of the year and Ouji to Majou to Himegimi to Vol. 2 is out on November 19th.

ETA: Simple Scans have dropped Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume from their scanlation projects. But fear not! It has now been picked up by Complex Scans.

Guess what got scanlated?

If you like fairytales, genderbending and Significant Names, Ouji to Majou to Himegimi to is just for you~

Edit: I'd just like to point out that throughout this chapter, the main character is incorrectly referred to as "Suboru" when her name is actually "Subaru".

Also woah, I was just checking Comic Holmes and it seems like there was something SK3C-related published in the Hana to Yume Issue 15 in July.

Happy Cafe Vol. 4 is due out this Tuesday on August 31st, and Vol. 5 is due out in November. The one-shot Hana to Ageha, Natsu and omake should also be included in Vol. 4, like the original release.

You may also have heard about the kerfuffle over scanlations and official companies recently. For the time being, 39 chapters of Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume are still available at MF, but Simple Scans have decided to keep their releases to their IRC channel from now on.

Whoops, forgot that the second volume was coming out until I went looking for and actually found it at Kinokuniya today.

Happy Cafe Volume 2

In this volume, we have the second appearance of Sakura, the declaration of war and subsequent battle with the Abekawa brothers, and the first proper appearance of Uru's mum. At the end, we also have Estimated Young Man and Girl aka Suitei Seinen Shoujo, Matsuzuki's debut one-shot.

Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but considering how well they managed the first volume (Amazon link), I have high hopes!

And I came across this Tokyopop article, "Quick and Dirty Tour of Designing a TOKYOPOP Cover", detailing the design process for the English translation's logo and covers.

P.S.: Simple Scans have now picked up scanslations for Shiawase Kissa Sanchoume. You can read their first release, chapter 32 (volume 7), at OneManga or Manga Fox.
