Decision made: Onii-ai will be dropped

Various reasons.

1.) The top reason is because vol 1 to 3 done by me is really really horrible. I am no perfectionist, but it irks me to see them like that should I want to continue with vol 4. I'll redo all of them if I have the time. But I don't (because I have real life commitments).
2.) Anime has covered quite a bit of material from the later volumes here and there.
3.) I want to clear SPS first, because I may not continue with this blog once I get a job and start my work.

So there. I don't really want to hog this title (though I never had the intention to do so in the first place, and has even asked people to take it over or redo it from scratch), so I am announcing my decision officially.

  1. Well that decision wasn't a surprise ... but i think that you should just transfer admin of the site to an editor/translator you trust, so this site can still provide wonderful translate if it ever happens to translate other project in the future

  2. Let us post your work on Baka-Tsuki so others can continue it.

    Without your permission, we can only link here and not edit. There's no reason to let all that work go to waste.

  3. Well thats unfortunate, but thanks for the translations of 1v-3v. Hopefully this blog and translations continue, but if not, it was fun while it lasted.

  4. I disagree with your translations being "really really horrible", though I do agree that they were not prefect.
    I respect your decision and all but is there anyone who has translated OniAi past volume 3? I'd appreciate it if you could let me know :)
    Thanks for everything you've done! :D

  5. ugh... more like the anime was "really really horrible", sorry was just really disappointed. waiting for the translated novel was fun, but then... ugh... anime... i can't believe you tried passing off your work as that bad. lol

    if life dont get us death will, i've actually quit my job and started getting ready for school again so i guess im busy like you in the opposite sense.

    btw whats the status for eden raws? will we ever see random translation pieces like oreimo and the monogatari piece aagain? still seems like we'll see a brief glimpse of whatever catchese your fancy, i actually like those little insights to new titles while waiting for updates

  6. It's a shame because this series is really so much better then your other translations with the exception of perhaps SPS, i mean seriously you should pick better quality series since your time is so limited. Please somebody put this up on BT so somebody else can continue it.

  7. If my Chinese was a bit (a lot) better and I wasn't to poor to go get the novels myself, I would continue it for you. But my Chinese sucks and I'm broke, so that's really just a faraway dream.

    1. I'm the same anon from there. My Chinese has improved to the point where i could probably translate this series accurately, given enough time... I'm still broke though. just saying

  8. I really liked the translation and the story. I have tried the anime multiple times. The light novel is just so much better.

    The only thing I found lacking in the translation is that I really like honorifics (personal preference) because of how much information they convey.

    There are many times where I wish I'd taken Japanese or Chinese so that I could help with these projects. I have tried multiple software translators, and they never work.

    Again, thank you so much for your translation.
