Releeeeease, *yawn*.

So, yeah. Got a little bit of time so I got onto translating some OSO. While it's just one chapter, it's quite a big one, a fairly big chunk of the volume.

I'll continue dropping a chapter here and there from time to time when I find some. Thankfully it appears I'll have some more time in coming months.

I'm also thinking of translating one of Antimagic's Another Mission chapter since it sure has been a while since I touched Antimagic (well, the main story ended so there's no hurry, of course), so I could probably rush through it on pure nostalgia power. If there's a chapter you particularly want, you could recommend one (or make some kind of poll on which to translate). The chapter order doesn't really matter since Another Mission volumes are a gathering of short stories.

OH, I completely forgot. Jumped out of my head when I started writing this post.

For this time's release, I had Caudyr go through the entire chapter and help me out editing it. Together we did some more drastic editing changes than I usually do together with Bareus, so any input on the quality improvement is welcome.

Flowers Chapter 3

Aorii here~

Another belated chapter update, this one for Flowers in Boreal Twilight. I keep feeling like something is lacking in Chapter 3. Though just like the character that I write, I can't seem to pinpoint what exactly it is. Grasping the metaphysical is hard :<  (Edit: after some more discussions and thought, I decided I didn't really like this chapter and is planning a major edit.)

The next one will also be Flowers as well, as I'm already into Chapter 4 and trying to hit the ground running on its story.

Chapter epigraphs are also being introduced (and retconned to older chapters). It has worked well in another writing project of mine to supplement world-building, cultural understanding, and characterization. As Flowers shines a spotlight on the Samarans and their Dharmic world views, I hope this'll come in handy.

...And for those who like learning in general: a Chapter references post.

Holidays is coming up! Hopefully this season I'll play less games and write more.

Happy Winter~

Daybreak Volume 4

Pascal, dress uniform ver.

Finally! (...and Krytyk is back so I'm no longer stealing his thunder!)

Beta readers have been busy and I've been distracted so this took a while.

Volume 4 Chapter 1

In the spirit of my works as usual, I hope you learn something from this chapter. The Spice and Wolf readers can tell me how this compares to the depth of economics in that series. Those of you who read Flowers will also see why I wanted to finish that exposition first before starting this one.

In other news, uploaded two character profile sketches of Pascal to the fan art, plus Hachi-Hana has given Tofu it's silkiness~ see the Daybreak and fan art pages for more ^^

It's ALIVE

I promised a chapter, I deliver a chapter. Although I'm still not over with the workload, I burned through some brain cells to dish this out in free moments.

Let's pray for better times.

Well, not much to write now... or probably just nothing comes to mind... oh, by the way - the second volume of Antimagic's authors' new novel is out. I thought it ended with the first volume, but it actually continues (continued?). Still haven't had time to read it despite owning the book, but I hope to see more of Yanagimi-sensei.

Anyways, finishing up the talk since I need to go back to work asap. Chapter link here?

Krytyk's Status Update

Hello World

It's been a while since there was a post from me, so I decided to take opportunity now - especially that a new OSO volume released today.

I'm still busy with work now, but better times are coming - judging by the work schedule I have. So don't despair, I'll probably drop an OSO release within a week or two. I should have more time in October, so I plan to move on with the story.

In any case, I'll try to get at least one chapter out within the near future, to start with.

PS: OH, I completely forgot! Today, OSO's author has released a first volume of his new novel, in English the title goes "Monster Factory - Demoted Knight Opens up a Monster Ranch" (ーモンスター・ファクトリー ‐左遷騎士が始める魔物牧場物語‐) and appears to be a slice of life story about a knight doing farming/cooking stuffs in a fantasy world. Honestly, I don't have time to even read it, but it might interest you.

PS2: Updated OSO main page with chapter titles, this is all I have time for, for the time being.
