It's been nearly two years —— AntiMagic Academy's chapter: Lapis is a cute

I've been promising this to AMA's fans for a while - that I'll slowly start dropping these from time to time... but ended up taking a year and nine months before dropping a chapter.

Please don't beat me. I have hands full catching up to OSO right now.

Onto the chapter details... well, not much to detail other than that I decided to do Lapis ministory from AMA:AM2 because it's LAPIS AND SHE'S CUTE, and because it was fairly short + cute illustration (I love Lapis' illustrations).

If anything I would like to find time and do AMA:AM1 extra chapter which speaks of Kusanagi Takeru's and Suginami Ikaruga meeting in the academy which is quite loreful and high in importance to the story, but it's more than twice as big as the chapter I just finished, so maybe next time.


I Wish I Had More Talents at Dialects

This pretty much sums up the current chapter. I wish I had a talent for various dialects and I could make Shichifuku sound more like a sailor as he's stylized in Japanese, oh well, can't have everything.

Meanwhile, I'm back to work but trying to slowly progress at the same time, dunno what will happen of it.

Right, the link to the chapter here.

PS: I settled down on "Emperor Isopod" the most mundane translation for the next chapter's boss. 皇帝愚足虫 loses the wonky kanji meanings, but 愚足虫 is read グソクムシ which is literally bathynomus - an isopod. Well, can't eat cake and have a cake.


Release: Sei's Unlimited Icicle Works

Found some time and translated some stuff. That'd be pretty much it.

Of things that happened lately? Nothing really, I just bought today three first volumes of Ryuuou no Oshigoto novel 'cause they're half off on bookwalker. A great novel, highly recommend it - anime doesn't do it justice.

Right, back to release talk and OSO, here you go with the chapter 3 of volume 11.

I might translate some more soon unless I suddenly turn busy, don't count on it but consider a release could possibly happen within a week.


PS: Illustrations this chapter are amazing.
PS2: Been a while since I said this, but please do purchase the books if you've read the translations. Support the author and the publisher by paying for the entertainment you enjoy.


A Teaser

A teaser project -- probably not what people were expecting.

This is still somewhat in the experimental/prototyping stage. Good or bad, I welcome readers to leave a comment.

It's sort of genderbender, but also not quite. I don't want to be caught in that maze of tropes and ingrained expectations again.

The long-awaited update and release

Well, I hope you're not expecting too much because I don't have much, but I have the promised chapter I said I was working on.

Like usual I'm busy and I can't find motivation to push myself to dish out extra hours for translation... but that doesn't mean I'm going to give it up. There've been lots of people asking whether I drop the series or stop translating and such.

Nope. I'm not dropping anything or stopping translations.

I might not release as often as I used to because, well, I'm no longer a student who has too much time on his hands. Still, I have long decided to continue translating until I finish all the series I picked up, which I continue to mention from time to time. Mainly OSO it is, though I want to do Antimagic short stories on the next occasion, at least one for now.

Speaking of Antimagic, like certain no name had posted in comment (thanks for the tip!), there is a new light novel coming from the author of Antimagic, Yanagimi-sensei, called "Iwakutsuki Mazoku Kyoushi to Tenshi Kouhousei" translating into "A Demon Teacher With Circumstances, and an Angel Candidate". I have yet to buy and read it, and probably will do so soon so I might do a review first volume next time. Also, yes, it's the novel that you see the cover of above on the right.

All right, now for the meat: the link to the chapter you were waiting for. Unfortunately no illustration for the chapter :(.

PS: It's a huge shame I'm so behind in translations, because vol15 is going to have Yun in swimsuit (and also other cast in swimsuits), apparently. I might as well drop the illustrations of it disregarding no-spoiler policy that I had, just for people to worship it when it comes.

...Still, we never know when my soul burns on fire for translating again. Let's hope it does and I catch up to my stuff.
