Going on Hiatus

That ranges from anywhere between 1 week to 1 month, depending on how fast I can get my report done. I guess you guys can look forward to Hyouketsu Kyoukai vol 2 and me trying (and probably failing) to translate Sayonara Piano Sonata when I get back.

Till then.

EDIT: Forget 1 month, realized I have to clear everything by 18th. May I be damned.

[Onii-Ai v3] Chapter 11: 14th April, AM6:00

So I got my TW translated Onii-ai vol 1. They are giving out posters of either Akiko, Anna or Nikaido as a promotion, but you have to be physically there at the event areas to claim it. God damn it hurts. Why can't they just bundle the shit up together? I was looking forward to seeing Anna in my room.

The whole volume's done. Thanks to Alice and Merc as usual. Enjoy.

And here's chapter 10. Hopefully, I can get the last chapter out by this weekend.

Looking forward to be entertained by the comments. Enjoy.

Review: Onimonogatari (鬼物語)

Spoilers ahead. Turn back if you don't wanna be spoiled.

[Onii-Ai v3] Chapter 8: 13th April, PM7:15

This chapter took some time, because I went into slight hardcore-gaming mode during the weekends.

[Onii-Ai v3] Chapter 7: 13th April, PM0:15

I usually drop suffixes like -chan or -san, because I deem them unnecessary, unless the situation calls for it (example, when Akiko starts calling Akito his name in vol 1). Suffix like -sama and -senpai are usually added in cause it denotes respect.

In the case of Akito, he usually calls Nasuhara by 'Nasuhara-san', Ginbe directly by name, and same with Akiko. As for Nikaido, it's Kaichou-san, or Nikaido-senpai and its variants.

Mentioning it here cause this chapter involves them coming up with ways to address each other, so yeah. Just a reminder.

[Eden v1] Epilogue: And so the young man aims for the tower

Annnnnd, I am done with Vol 1, one week earlier than initially scheduled.

Thanks to Alice and Merc for following through the proofreading. Also, Crazy Cake! for the raws. 

I personally enjoyed this series a lot, but I am not quite sure how the rest will feel about it. Generally, you can pretty much grasp the writing style of the author in this volume. Character/plot development, and fights in the last part. That's the basic flow of Tasogareiro (except for the last 3 volumes or something) and the first 3 vols of Hyouketsu Kyoukai, so expect something similar to this in vol 2.

Also, I'll resume on Onii-ai and try to finish it asap. Then I'll have to do my internship report, before starting on Hyouketsu Kyoukai vol 2, and a test run on Sayonara Piano Sonata.

Feel free to post your opinions about the series here, as well as any comments and constructive criticisms in regards to my translations.

[Eden v1] Resolution Chapter: Shouten


[Eden v1] Final Chapter: The touching fingertips (completed)

[Eden v1] Final Chapter: The touching fingertips (part 2)

Here's part 2. The whole volume should be done by Friday latest, but there will be the proofreading part to go. If all things goes well, Vol 1 should be completed by this weekend.

[Onii-Ai v3] Chapter 6: 13th April, AM10:30

Onii-ai vol 4 will be released in Japan on 25th October. I was quite apprehensive about how bad the cover will be, since it is Nikaido's cover, but surprisingly, the cover is much better than anticipated.

To think I was still deciding on whether to start Sayonara Piano Sonata as buffer between Hyouketsu Kyoukai's chapters...... Looks like I can postpone making that decision for now (maybe, depending on how fast the translations for Onii-ai comes out).

Anyway, here's chapter 6. Akito needs to grow a pair.

So here's chapter 5. I will be finishing off with chapter 6. After that, I'll be clearing volume 1 of Hyouketsu Kyoukai.

[Onii-Ai v3] Chapter 4: 13th April, AM8:30

Well, for those who don't already know, Onii-ai's getting a manga port. Angry Fox Scans are doing the scanlation for that, and they are way better than me in terms of the translations. Be sure to check it out at here. Quite interested to see how the manga will go about doing a rather conversation-based story.

Oh well. Here's the 4th chapter of Onii-ai. Enjoy.
