Tuna Empire – Island Vol.2

Here’s the second volume courtesy of Stass. For those looking for answers to the mindfuck stuff in volume 1, I’m afraid you’ll be sorely disappointed. Note: also contains some belly inflation(with a water hose).

Now that this one’s done, I can get to work on smaller stuff, so you can likely expect a more steady stream of stuff. Also, I’ll be going through Brandish vol.4 this month.

  2. M says:

    Well that just confused the hell out of me…

  3. Aras says:

    …what just happend

  4. Grant says:

    Outside of the watersports the sex was good to see but I wish they would give us some normality to compare his situation to.

    What’s the huge box of text on the last page about? More random pseudo-philosophy? Information on the next volume?

  5. Seems like in the library they were spouting out Augustine, but I could be wrong. Has been a while since I read his thoughts on time, past, present and future and how they blended together.

  6. PNC says:

    so it all a dream, INCEPTION

  7. Brief says:

    I had no idea Brandish 4 was even out yet. There goes even more money I can’t afford to spend. =_=

  8. Ehud says:

    Many thanx Sayo and Stass.

  9. supercow says:

    I am so confused I had to go back and read volume 1 and then went back to read this again. Still don’t get it anyone mind clearing this up for me?

  10. D says:

    Fuck man, I read and re-read both volumes to try and make since of this and i’m pretty sure the only guy who could tell you what is going on is the author himself.

  11. rdaw says:


    You got it wrong. It’s all about CONCEPTION.

  12. F says:

    Wut is this… I don’t even… Well the maid has a huge something to do with it I guess… buuut, they never really explain that. I think this is some uuber talanted artists mental breakdown?

    Hotfile seems to be having problems:
    “Your download has expired”
    “Server error”

    I eventually found that, rather then starting over, I just hit the “Go back one page” button, and clicked the “Download file” button again.
    Eventually it would download.
    Starting over would require a 30 minute wait.

    I’m a Hotfile member, and NoScripts is set to allow ALL of that page.

  14. Suiton says:

    I have no idea what was going on. The maid serves some evil creature?The maid has a fantasy world she plays with? They are all dead except for the guy and his love interest?
    Is this story based or related to any Japanese folktale of some sort?
    Tuna empire has great art but his story’s are a bit much to intake in a H-manga.

  15. Tsurupettan Loev says:

    “his story’s are a bit much to intake in a H-manga.”
    Don’t think about it too much, you’ve probably thought about it more than the author at this point lol

  16. Anon² says:

    Oh wait I got an idea. None of it is real and it just so happens to be some guys imagination running wild. Best part: that’s actually true…

    I’m pretty sure that this series is something like the movie “50 First Dates” combined with “Total Recall”.

    And that the same guy that trained all the girls before, and the same one that wrote the diary and the same one that appeared with all of the girls in the end

    If you check again the chapter about the diary, you can see that the same guy that got Hitomi pregnant looks the same that Rokurou

    I suppose that before the beginning of the series he got in an accident and forgot about the times that he passed training all the girls, then every time that he get his memories back he is reseted and forget them again but he only forget about his Long-term memories, and about the latest thing that he was doing

  19. Mizuki says:

    This manga was… really not that weird. It didn’t really go anywhere new and most of its “mindfuckery” was pulled directly from other sources that pulled it off better, and I’m of the honest opinion that the artist himself didn’t understand just where the hell he was going with it. It felt kind of like he saw interesting ideas in other manga/anime and decided to throw them all together.

    Personally though, I think the main character’s either dead or comatose and that the Detective Chick and/or Rei Ayanami Clone Maid is his daughter.

    The pseudo-philosophy he mentions isn’t easily adaptable as a visual story, and H-Manga certainly isn’t the place to try.

  20. Daremo says:

    Normally I would have passed on this, but nothing attracts my attention like the sweet siren song of bafflement in the morning. Do I need the first volume?

  21. D says:

    The first volume kinda explains it a bit more so I would say get the first volume

  22. Anonymous says:

    Is this series over or will there be more volumes?

  23. Anonymous says:

    I’ve read other h-manga by Tuna Empire, and they were mostly humorous. So I think he made the plot as complicated as he could just for shits and giggles, and that really, there isn’t actually anything to understand.

    There’s so many reveals that what-we-saw-was-actually-an alternate reality / dreamworld / illusion that my guess is he wanted to see if the readers could make something out of this completely illogical clusterfuck, taking a jab at stories like Evangelion.

  24. CarTboys says:

    I just notice on page 182-182, that Rokurou is on Hitomi’s lap in the truck, I’m assuming the maid decided to help them two escape from the mansion and his crazy family. And the theater was just showing his lostpast memories.
