  2. Thank you so much for translating this and cleaning it so well!
    I’m loving this series so far, especially the art 😀

  3. This is an amazing story. Didn’t think I would love it but I got hooked on the first chapter and couldn’t stop reading it. Thank you for translating this title, can’t wait for the next chapter.

  4. omggg this is SO good. it makes me want to go back and read moby dick, the way it so evocatively paints a picture of victorian england and sailing life. it doesn’t shy away from showing the bleak realities of that time, but it also infuses it with such hope and beauty… MAN i’m so glad the mangaka decided to make this story. also thank y’all so much for picking up this work and scanlating it. big props!

  5. Can I ask how many volumes and chapters do this manga have? I am totally loving it 🙂 Thank you for translating 🙂

    • It ends at volume 4. So there’s only 10 released left.

  6. You’ve done amazing job and the manga is awesome. I read all the chapters that you have released so far. Thank you for picking it up. I am waiting for the next ones.

  7. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA <333
    I can;t wait for the new chapter! I have great interest when I see vol 1 cover,
    and when I tried to read it, damn! It's so new, so great (art and story-wise), so feels, and such characters <3 I do like the development between Monica, Evan, Louis, Neal, and everyone else.
    Especially how they're connected to the "Cradle". The plot is new so it's refreshing,
    and the art totally brings you to "move from one spot to another spot" thingy (idk how to explain).

    I was so happy to see on May update that Umi no Cradle ch19 is CLEANED/TRANSLATED
    Please please please don't drop this great manga (TT^TT)

    • I have no intentions on dropping it. It’s just that my new job has been keeping me very busy and I actually finally have time to letter. =) I am also currently lettering a chapter of it.

      • Thank you for your hard work then! I’m enjoying the latest chapter update
        Hope for the best for Antisense scan <3

  8. Greetings from Brazil!
    Thank you so much for translating this manga, I’m so in love with it (or with Neal? hmn)
    Keep up the amazing job!
