Nothing much to say here except here’s the chapter, Haruka a cute. Next chapter will probably be either Lute or HSN, not sure which, and the one after that should be the other, most likely followed by another of this.
Also, as you’ve undoubtedly noticed, I’ve changed the site’s theme, let me know what you think, whether here, on discord, or via carrier pigeon.
Well, thanks to my friend doing wonderful redraws for me, I’ve got the character introductions from the end of the novel done. Some potential light spoilers, but the descriptions are of them at the start of the novel, plus a little bit of their past here.
(Make sure to click the images to get the full size.)
Well, I randomly wanted to start something new, so I decided to start this: Upon the Wind and Melody of the Lute or in romaji: Kaze to Lute no Shirabe ni Nosete. It’s a longer series from Takehaya, the other being Rokujouma. The illustrations are from Akabane.
The prologue is here: Prelude: The Bard’s Lute
I’ve also started on World Break again, if I fail to get it up within about two weeks, feel free to harass me on discord.
And thus, the reason for the lack of any more World Break in the past month becomes clear. It was suggested that I TL this, and seeing as I enjoyed the anime when I watched it to see if the series actually was my cup of tea, I decided to.
Couple of things before the chapter, This release is both unedited and has no illustrations. When the volume is completed, it’ll be released with illustrations and edits on the HataMaou community discord, these will mostly serve as a preview for those who can’t wait.
And on a related note of shameless self-promotion, as some people have already spotted, I made a discord server of my own, as everyone and their dog seems to be doing so now, so if you want to get in touch, or just generally chat about the stuff I TL or anything else really, feel free to join.
The chapter is here, and there’s a couple of notes I want to make here:
- The line about fallen blossoms has a double meaning, it can mean both exam failure and cherry blossom falling.
- Kamaboko is a way that fish is prepared and is normally served on a wooden plate.
So, altogether too late, I decided I’d do something for April Fool’s. I had too much work to actually do it within the day, so I ended up starting at about ten PM, meaning I didn’t finish in time, so RIP actually releasing it like that. Instead, here’s the only thing I was going to link before replacing it with the actual prologue later. And here’s the actual prologue.
I remember Woods Runner mentioning this way back and thought it sounded fairly interesting, so I decided to do this for a couple of reasons: It was relatively short, so I’d stand a chance at finishing in time, and a teaser of this would be nice. Not sure I’ll go past this prologue and probably won’t, take it as a teaser only, as much as I kinda like Mizusawa’s style, I’m not sure I really do it justice trying to TL it.
In other news: Yes I’m still working on World Break, I’ll hopefully release chapter 1 next weekend, we’ve just entered the two weeks of ALL THE DEADLINES at uni, along with various exams so I’ve been focussing on those.
(And also yes, I will eventually go back to GaWoRaRe.)
Well, this got here before I got a decent amount through chapter 1, so here’s a Sanae Store Bonus while I get back into the swing of translating after the break for Rokujouma and exams.
And here’s Elfaria’s, same crack with the names.
