  1. Yup, I'm better. I got over the sickness in just a few days. After that I just got caught up in the holidays and haven't been able to get my translation work ethic back. :P

  2. Hahahaha, no problem. I had 3 or 4 projects until a month ago, but I've been really really slow lately so I'm cutting back to get down to just 1 project for a while until I can handle more again. :D

  3. No reason in particular. I'm just curious and making conversation. ;)

  4. From a professor at my school: Tout ce que tu peux determiner à propos de la date de fin d'une thèse de doctorat c'est le mois ou l'année mais pas les deux en même temps.

    1. Tronny


      (All that can be determined about the completion date of a PhD thesis is the month or the year, but not both at the same time.)

      Haha, that's awesome. XD

  5. Happy birthday Alstro-chan~~


    What are you working on now that DC is over? :3

  6. For Steady Study: It has no deadlines and thus is placed at number 4 in my to-do list (see signature). That means it could take 2 or 3 weeks. As you can see, I have plenty to do between the MTL board, other reTL/rePR stuff, and my own projects, so if you have a willing TL who wants to do these then I certainly won't mourn the loss of that work.

  7. (message got cut off)


    hasn't had time to sit down and write a response. Either way, be patient and you'll get your answers.

  8. For Pika: As a rule, if you post on the MTL board then a TL will get to it. There's no danger of it going unnoticed... I get e-mail notifications of new MTLs, so I usually see them within a couple minutes. If you don't hear back right away then either your TL request takes time because it's large or difficult or your translator is busy in real life and hasn't had time to sit do...

  9. Yup. Just don't give her ch1 (I've started it) and let me know which chapters she's doing so I don't do them too.

  10. Wish granted. EF's PR staff become the last humans on earth who can speak English, and they are forced into captivity to breed. New wish: I wish for time zones to be eliminated and for the whole world to experience day and night at the same times.
  11. Wish granted. It rains marshmallows, making everyone happy and totally not stressed, but they just keep raining down without stopping and we all suffocate while competing in an epic game of Chubby Bunny. :3 New wish: I wish for a house-cleaning fairy. Or robot. Let's make it a fairy robot.
  12. I'll just leave this here. http://whitepeoplemourningromney.tumblr.com/ By the way, as a Canadian who sees Americans say 'I'mma move to Canada!' every time the US has an election, I have to say... I can sort of understand it when Republicans win and Democrats say it, but I am totally baffled when I hear it after a Democrat win. You can't stand to see America taking steps towards universal healthcare, legal same sex marriage, and decreased military aggressiveness, and therefore you will move to a country which has had all of these things for a while now? (Also, we totally don't want your crazies - please kindly keep them. XD)
  13. Getting ready to go watch my team play. (aka hooker makeup for a cause) The eyeshadow's a bright green in real life, but my camera and/or the lighting tinted things kind of orange and it muted the effect. Sorry for the epic blurriness as well, but I'm too lazy to retake it.
  14. Well huh. I see what you're saying, and that is weird, but I took a look at the raws and it's actually written that way (ie, the TL is perfectly correct). The bubble on the right (that's supposedly coming from him) is even talking in a feminine manner (it uses watashi, but the devil uses boku throughout the rest of the story), so I conclude that it's actually a mistake made by the mangaka and/or their assistants. They made the 'tails' on the speech bubbles point in the wrong direction.

    Awesome, sounds good. By the way, it seems like a lot of the staff like this author, and I remember seeing a few of her works in this list http://evilflowers.com/ipboard/index.php?/topic/1608-tessas-list-of-hq-raws/. Just something to keep in mind for the far far future when we're ready to pick up some new projects. ;D

  16. Tronny

    Aww, thanks so much! I'm really glad to hear that! :D




    I just notice Neko's last post below... I'm ahead of schedule on my projects for once, so I could TL the extra if the Edo Karuta TLs are busy. :3

  17. Translating: Situations where the Japanese uses a nice variety of sfx (sound effects), but English doesn't have as many words for the same thing and it looks really stupid writing the same word a bunch of times. Sfx which are perfectly good in Japanese, but look stupid in English. Lisps, accents, baby talk, and character catchphrases... understanding is easy, but replicating in English is hard.
  18. I'm only speaking for Japanese language manga, because that's the only kind I have experience with. The books have smaller dimensions than English ones, and they're published on paper that's lighter and thinner. Overall, Japanese manga volumes are designed to be cheap and compact, not big and sturdy like they are here. This is just a difference in culture... in Japan, manga is something people trade around, sell to (and buy from) used bookstores, and sometimes just bundle up and put on the curb to be recycled. People also appreciate the compactness, because otherwise there's just no space to keep a lot of books. Prices there are typically 400 or 500yen new, 100yen used. On the other hand, manga volumes published in North America are big, sturdy, shiny, colourful, and expensive, and are meant to be like trophies on your shelf. Summary: Japanese 'raw' volumes are indeed smaller than the books sold in North America, and are also produced more cheaply. However, they're also priced way more cheaply to match (if bought in Japan).

    I haven't seen it, but I loved loved loved Black Lagoon. <3

    Yay for colour nerds! Favourite colours: #DE2121 has been my favourite since high school. Something in the #004C68 range is nice too. (ie, these two: )
  21. Hey pikori! Don't grab the SKS ch03 cleans yet!!! There's an ordering issue that's being sorted out.

  22. You have to host your files somewhere else, as far as I know. I like imgur because you can upload images without making an account. After you've uploaded the pictures, you can post links to them here or you can use the "Insert image" button to embed the images right in your post.
  23. Awesome, thanks for checking it out for me!!

    I looked at the Edo Karuta raws and the first story is adorable. I didn't expect to like it, to be honest, but it's really sweet. However, I currently have 3 projects plus a one shot I offered to do for Ayne. Soooooo if this is still unclaimed by the time I finish Oyayubi Hime (TLing the third last chapter now), I'll take it on. Feel free to get another JTL, though, if someone else...
