one of the best mangas on earth IMHO

The day you grow tired of dragon ball Z / naruto / bleach the usual shittypopular mangas, in case you don’t know it yet, I really strongly encourage you to discover Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou :)

I updated the online reading links (onemanga.com closing down in a few days), and I manually, and with a love of love, made the repack of the “complete manga in a Zip” version.
My changes are :
– my addition of tank covers and first|last bonus pictures for every volume. It was missing for the volumes 11-14 still composed with magazine scans, but I used the materials provided by a Spanish version (alt. link) that used tank scans even for the late volumes.
– some covers had awful color balance fixed
– all pictures renamed with only one pattern, no zillion sub-folders

Read Online

Here comes the zip link ! Help yourselves ! ^^
(345 MB, 2206 pictures, English)

(please, is there a chance you can use the depositfiles link ? That will generate a tiny bonus for me, thank you very much if that's possible for you ! :)
A bonus for you, the coupon '07xpy4r3b7eiio5108b0db12dzwmjkxm' gives a 10% discount on Depositfiles 6-months and 1-years accounts.)

Or you can also use the Alternative :
Zip Mirror #1 – or – Zip Mirror #2 – or – Zip Mirror #3
My fixes aren’t much, but still, they’re missing from the online reading version.

Among the good points of this series : a contemplative ambiance, no fights, very moving characters you see evolve across many years, a most unique and interesting point of view on the future of mankind, some sad, so sad, and yet so beautiful and hope-carrying notes, endless beautiful landscapes…
And, last but not least, the manga is over, finished, complete, final period.
Edit : I learned a word, this manga is mono no aware in its purest form…

Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou is one of those rare mangas that give you that distinct impression, no, certitude, that, in a subtle way, you’re not the same when you finished reading it, and you feel that’s for the best…

I could write a long time about this manga, but after all, you’re the only one who’ll see if you like it or not. So at least, I give you the link, I hope this will come as an excellent gift to some of you at least :)


Hello ! This post is getting on years, so here's a friendly mention... If all the Zip links are dead, you may try using
THE HENTAIRULES GIGATORRENT
to grab the file you want. You can just pick the stuff you need, it's quick and easy :)

    Many thanx Oliver for your hard work. I don't get it. Is it 1 long story or different stories? If it's 1 story, what is his name?
    Thanx in advance.

    • oliverh July 30, 2010 at 8:33 am #

      It's one long story, spread across 14 volumes, with the title Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou.

      Could it be I misunderstood your question ? That looked pretty obvious o_O

      • Ehud July 30, 2010 at 9:00 am #

        Sorry Oliver. I thought that this is the name of the mangaka. I looked now in Baka-Updates and learned that the mangaka is ASHINANO Hitoshi.
        My bad.

    Hey Oli (may I call you Oli?), I started reading JoJo’s Bizarre recently, but with Onemanga closing down, I have no other place to read it online. Would you happen to know of a place so that I can continue getting my fix?

  6. ilexuki July 30, 2010 at 4:14 pm #

    mangatraders has jojo bizarre adventure. i started reading that recently as well

  7. tomcat July 30, 2010 at 4:17 pm #

    Hehe, the first thing I did when I heard Onemanga was going down was torrent the full series of YKK. (which you, kind Oliver, introduced me to) Seems like you could have saved me the trouble :)

    sorry to say it but as someoene who has seen it a lot this is more than obviously good manga but who got stopped before the previewed end , too many persos having a meaning in the story but getting nowhere at least at the end and ever appearing hints who scream "WE WILL EXPLAIN IT LATER" and so on . good manga but like some others one who seems to have been disapointing to the japanese readers , after all it looks like the introductions of the persos arent finished even after 14 books. and i ve come to loathe those ones they want you to see more but the potential got stopped before really starting.

    windows no like file names that exceed 250 characters

  10. ilexuki July 30, 2010 at 9:40 pm #

    specifically, vol 11 and on has problems extracting cause the name is way too long

    • oliverh July 30, 2010 at 9:00 pm #

      My hentai collection is almost at the root of my folder tree, so I don't have that problem :D

    i tried extracting it to my desktop, and it said no-go. i’ll try extracting it directly to C then rename them so i can put them somewhere safer

    • oliverh July 30, 2010 at 11:53 pm #

      Against too long filenames, you can start by renaming the zip to a small name like h.zip, and then open it with winrar/winzip/7zip without extracting it, in order to also rename the folder present in the archive. With that, there shouldn't be anymore problems of folder length.

    Oli, I just wanted to take time out of my lurking to express how great this manga is. (think this is my first post here) I discovered this little baby on the weekly featured on mangatraders. Never had I once read a slice of life or anything as slow as this, but god did it grab me. The whole ominous nature of the reality the characters live in leaves you with a little bitter taste in your mouth of how is this possible, but they don't care about that, they happily live and enjoy the little things in their life. The kind of things that might happen to us every day but we never appreciate come to them perhaps once a week or month, yet they enjoy cherish and love everything. It is so hard not to share in the happiness of the events and sometimes uneventful plot in this manga. Its been a year and I miss having coffee with Alpha on those lazy days. I really do.

  14. Kav July 31, 2010 at 6:15 pm #

    fyi – 7zip has no problems extracting anything, ever.

  15. Flying Horses July 31, 2010 at 11:26 pm #

    Many thanks for sharing this. I’ve read the first 5 volumes today, and it’s a very sweet series. The slow, contemplative pace reminds me of Mushishi—a good read, great anime adaptation—but with a brighter tone, perhaps.

  16. Ryan August 1, 2010 at 3:59 am #

    I love it Oliver.
    I only wish there was more or that I hadn't read through it so quickly.

    I do hope you share some more.

    I greatly appreciate the batch link, a life saver befor party for a long trip

    surtout que la lecture du premier chapitre sur mangafox m'a donné l'envie de lire la suite et que je n'aurais jamais eu le temps de tout rapatrier avant mon départ ^^
    encore merci même si je sens que je vais devoir lurker comme un porc à mon retour… XD

    If you liked Yokohama, then you might want to consider reading Aria, too.

    Fans in Japan considered both Yokohama and Aria as the Twin Goddesses of Soothing. So such name would give you an idea what Aria is like

    This was pretty cool! I'm only two volumes in. This seems like a manga i should hate, its so slow, but its fun and worth reading =)

  20. Ricardo August 8, 2010 at 6:53 am #

    Since it's your recommendation, I am definitely going to read it. I also enjoy this type of mangas that how you said "Yokohama Kaidashi Kikou is a one of a kind manga that I revere, that made me, a bit, a better person, I think."

  21. Jim September 4, 2010 at 5:37 pm #

    Thanks a lot!

  22. ala February 18, 2011 at 5:14 am #

    I finally finished reading this half a year after i D/L'd it. Regret taking so long to doing so. Oliver, You are king.

    • Oliver AKA The Admin February 18, 2011 at 6:01 am #

      It's never too late to enjoy a manga you might remember all your life, glad you enjoyed it :)

  23. NotSoAnon July 22, 2013 at 4:06 am #

    I know it’s an old post, but I read the first chapter of this manga YEARS ago. And finally just found it again, and was looking to see if I could actually buy it. Sadly not, it’s only partially available, and only in Japanese. And out of print. And then I found your archive file. THANK YOU SO FREAKING MUCH. I LOVE this thing, and the other few pieces done by the author. I’ve got to find a reasonable way to buy all of his stuff in print!
