Isekai Seikishi Monogatari Vol. 2 Ch. 7 & T-Sensei Vol. 2 Ch. 7-8

Nanaten here. Happy Eid-Il Fitr for fellow muslims out there. It's good to be back at my hometown catching up with old friends and to see how they have been. I do get a little bit jealous to see how successful/happy they are with their lives.

So here's an old series I decided to (re)revive: War on Geminar. I read the english scanlation of Ai Tenchi Muyo by Tenchi Forums and I was reminded about this series. I was afraid that those guys might take over the series, so I pulled a 20th Century Fox move and continued this translation project.

It didn't took me a while to get reacquainted with the terms used in this project (thanks, wikipedia). I didn't have to spend 13 hours of binge watching the anime, no matter how much I wanted to now that I think about it. I had fun with typesetting this chapter, choosing which font to use. I hope I will be able to finish the volume/series properly this time. I mean five chapters to go. How hard can that be?

I also had fun translating these T-Sensei chapters. Once again, props to Eva from Mavi Manga for the amazing typesetting. I noticed a couple of mistakes in my translation because the way I wrote my script before I send it to them. There are many speech bubbles with uneven center alignment because I separate most lines with space key. I also forget to use backspace from time to time so there are many mistakes I didn't erase. Couple those with constant typos, and you have recipe for middle-low tier translation quality.

I've tried to fix some of those mistakes post-editing. But then I realized that I didn't have some of the fonts used in those chapters. It's fun to try find substitutes for those fonts but some of them lost their impact in the process. On unrelated note, the funniest part of the chapters for me are the part where the boys shout "Pew Pew Pew" and T-Sensei looked at them proudly.

So here're this week's chapters. I might have to get back to the city earlier next week.

Ake no Tobari Ch. 122

Nanaten here. I am currently watching Ouran Highschool Host club anime. After more than a decade, the series still holds up. If you haven't watched it, I recommend you to do so.

I'll be going back to my hometown for a couple of weeks, but don't worry. I already have some chapters prepared, so I'm good at that end. A series will make a return after a-couple-of-year hiatus. Look forward to that next week.

I said last week that I'd be recording a couple of tracks. Unfortunately, I burned myself out translating chapters before my departure on Monday.

About this chapter: Back in chapter 72, I mistranslated Magatoki's line about how he searched for Tobari. Back then I wrote "I've been going around growing plants and chaos looking for you." when the actual line is actually "I've searched every corner of Yachikusa and Konton looking for you". GT translated Yachikusa and Konton literally by Kanji. I never thought they were actually referring to the places until I translated this chapter. I should really fix that. Maybe when I return.

Next week, Ake no Tobari will be taking a break. But I'll release three chapters from different series.

Ake no Tobari Ch. 121

Nanaten here. Currently I'm reading Gate's LN over at skythewood translation's blog. Then I realized that I still have two transcript final assignments and I have to take my sister to the airport today.

No new video this week. Not that anyone anyone anticipate it, I assume. I've been recording my lines for Grand Opere Chorus Battle and Love Scenario Chorus Battle. And next week, I'll be recording a bunch of songs, so look out for that.

About this chapter: when Mayu (from Mavi Manga, great job as always) sent me the typeset version of this chapter, she mentioned that there were some blank text I forgot to fill when I sent the script and there's a part that is still in Turkish. While I did fill the missing parts later, I didn't fix the Turkish text because I find it to be hilarious. Okay? It''s because it is hilarious I decided to keep it. It is ABSOLUTELY NOT because I forgot to change it. Got it?

Translation note: I looked up the term "Kagome" on Wikitionary. Reimei refers the cage ball encapsuling Tobari's core as one. The word actually refers to the lattice pattern of the ball. This lattice pattern has always present in barrier arts Reimei used. This will be an important point in this mini-arc.

So here's Reimei and Tobari's arrival at Shinonome. Next week: Reimei's Master returns.

Ake no Tobari Ch. 120 & T Sensei Vol. 1 Ch. 6

Nanaten here. I just finished watching Utawarerumono the False Mask anime, so I decided to rewatch the first anime series. With the announcement of what I assume was Utawarerumono series mousou game, I hope they announce anime adaptation of Mask of Truth soon.

And this week on Nanaten's Stagnant Youtube Channel:

Flash Hunter (from P.Photography) filmed his cosplay footages back in February. It was during an event I couldn't attend because I was at my cousin's and uncle's wedding receptions. A few weeks later he handed me those footages. I was only able to finish the video because I found a logo reveal animation on premium beat. Originally, the video was meant to end abruptly with everything cuts to black. While I'm glad I found that animation, I wonder how everyone's reaction would be if I did otherwise?

This week, I keep getting emails about internet sites and their privacy policies. And since google is also updating their privacy policy, I ought to inform everyone this. Though, I am not exactly sure how this affects anything I've done until now, it's still nice to get notified.

About this week's Ake no Tobari: this is a flashback chapter about everyone's (least, I assume,) favorite character, Meyui. In this chapter, we get to see how the demon trio came to rule Shinonome. Once again, shout-out to Eva from Mavi Manga for the amazing editing and typesetting.

So here're Ake no Tobari and T-Sensei. See you next week.

Tekken Chinmi Legends Vol 15 Ch 68 & T-Sensei Vol 1 Ch 5

Nanaten here. And happy Ramadan for you Muslims out there! Time to enjoy delicacies such as fruit punch, fruit punch, and fruit punch for the next thirty days!

Time for video of the week! This is the second cosplay video as I told last week:

This was shot the day after last week's video. There were three separate cosplay events happened that weekend and I only had time to attend two. The other one is actually held on the same building as the first event, but every cosplayer already went home by the time I got there. For this video, I tried to have fun messing with time remapping. However, I noticed that there is a lot of shaking in my camera and my phone kept changing the ISO automatically. Maybe I should get a rig for stabilizing my footages.

I am currently having a mild cold, so I couldn't do much this week because of medication, but I will try to get as many chapters as I can so I will have free time to do something else this month. Until then enjoy these beautiful chapters. I'll see you next week when Ake no Tobari returns.

Tekken Chinmi Legends Vol. 15 Ch. 67

Nanaten here. My sister and I spent the past few days just chilling in front of a laptop binging 13 Reasons Why before second season airs next week. At the time of writing this, I convinced her to watch Stranger Things, but she got scared before the opening credits, so she watched Riverdale instead. It's fun to watch her guessing who killed Jason Blossom.

Last week, I talked about how I wish Mushoku Tensei get its anime adaptation. And I still do. Mushoku Tensei is one of the first reincarnation light novels I've ever read. I used to wait everyday to see if there's a new chapter translated. I remembered how I got excited when I read the adventure volumes, laughed when I read the daily life chapters, and cried when I read the last chapter. It is one of the series where you care so much for the characters because you watch them growing from infancy right to the final moment of their lives and yet you know life goes on in that world. There is still so many more stories to tell and lots of unanswered questions. I am looking forward to the sequel to the WN version and perhaps for the LN version to be localized.

This week, I worked on three cosplay videos and two covers I have on my backlog. Here's the first cosplay video I shot back in April:

I haven't done cosplay videos for months at that point. At the time of shooting, I realized I have lost my touch. That Cindy footage was shot by my friend because I couldn't find the right angle. I also lost some footages because I was shaking too much. I am also learning about color grading recently, so there are parts that are overexposed. I am saying this because the other two videos have almost the same quality.

Another video I uploaded is a quick cover of Baloney Speaker by Nekobolo:

Somehow, this (and some other songs) got stuck in my head, so I had to record a cover of it. Not counting that History Maker video, this is actually the first English cover I've ever done. (Note to self: always tune before mix)

About this chapter: Ake no Tobari chapter 120 is a long chapter and almost all of them needs a proper cleaning. Since the folks at Mavi Manga still haven't gotten back to me yet, I decided to translate Tekken Chinmi Legends. I was supposed to work on this few weeks ago. I rented the volume that time and I still haven't returned it yet, racking late fees each passing day. So while I am waiting for the typeset chapters of Ake no Tobari (and T-Sensei), I will be working on TCL.

So here's the continuation of Tekken Chinmi Legends. Now I'm gonna go and watch my sister reacts to Riverdale.

T-Sensei Vol. 1 Ch. 3-4 & Ake no Tobari Ch. 119

Happy (belated) Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you!

Recently, I've been re-reading Mushoku Tensei (and to some extend, its sequel spin-off, Jobless Oblige). As one of the first reincarnation genre light novels and probably the one that sets the cliches of that genre, it's still baffling me that this series hasn't gotten its anime adaptation yet. Though, as a fan, I know how hard it is to adapt the story into at least 12 episode format considering the pacing and the content of the first 6 volumes. First two volumes did a good job to explain the world the characters lived in. But the next 4 volumes (a.k.a. the golden age) is so good, it would be a crime not to adapt the whole story. What do you think? Should Mushoku Tensei get an anime adaptation? Let me know in the comments.

Random irl stuff: people in my house were so busy the past two weeks, we forgot to clean the house, so it was overrun with ants and mosquitos. Fortunately, no one got the dengue fever, but we did lost a good amount of sleep at night.

About these chapters: I can't remember when was the last time I post three chapters in a week (two weeks ago actually, but one of the chapter was a reupload, so it barely counts.) It is to make up some monthly chapters I missed out the past couple of months. I really hope we can keep up with this pacing, me and the amazing folks at Mavi Manga who did the cleaning and type settings on these chapters as usual.

So here are T-Sensei and Ake no Tobari chapters. Next Ake no Tobari chapter is taking a bit longer to clean, so there will be a delay. But I promise to do do an update a series next week.
