Umarekawatte mo mata, Watashi to Kekkon shite kuremasu ka Vol. 1 Ch. 4

Nanaten here. First I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to the victims of the Kyoto Animation Studio Fire. It was such a tragedy for it to happen in such a way. I have so many fond anime series produced by them and for the staff that worked on those series to be injured, and almost half of them died, is devastating. My heart goes to all those affected.

I remember the first time I danced to Hare Hare Yukai. I was in Eleventh grade and we had a self study session. We all got bored, so I grabbed a laptop, blasted the song and started dancing in front of the class. Though  my classmates didn't know either the song or the anime series, they all cheered as I messed up the sequence.

I wish for everyone to show and provide support to them during this disaster. Sentai Filmworks has created a crowdfunding campaign to help the victims. Please, do not hesitate to donate for the cause. If you can't, you can also send your message using hashtag #PrayforKyoAni or #prayforKyotoAnimation on social media. Really, anything supportive helps.

Anyway, I'm turning 25 tomorrow. I wish I could be excited about it, but the Kyoto Animation fire really sucks any resemblance of joy this week. I'm also busy working on my thesis (which explains the inconsistent release). And my aunt has a tumor in his abdomen area and is about to go through surgery. But silver lining: my mom's in town so I don't have to worry about my meals at the moment.

About this chapter: This chapter broke me. Don't let the cover fool you. I was bawling in tears after I finished typesetting this chapter. I've read this chapter a year ago and I almost cried back then. Then translating this series gave me the opportunity to revisit it and... well... you already know what happened.

That is the actual reason why I decided to postpone this chapter to this week. A few weeks ago, right after I finished typesetting this chapter (and was lying on the floor, crying), Mayu sent me the latest T&T chapters. As you already know, I really enjoyed chapter 29 of T-Sensei. When it was time to pick which series should I release that week, between choosing a chapter that gave me pure joy and a chapter that gave me a case of waterworks, I think the choice is obvious. Nevertheless, I did enjoy this chapter quite a bit. It's just I needed a time to heal after working on this chapter.

This has been a pretty depressing post. I apologize. Next week will be T&T release.
