Ake no Tobari Ch. 300-301 & CnR-KM Ch. 43


Nanaten here. A lot of things happened while I was gone. So let's go over it one by one

My Brother got Married

First, congratulations, my big bro and his beautiful wife. The prep work for the wedding was a nightmare and a half. Two wedding receptions in a span of one week. I sang "My Heart Will Go On" at the groom's part of the reception. Question for you guys: what's your go-to song to sing at a wedding?


I did a Collab with Ruang Obrol

A few days before the wedding, I posted a collab video with Ruang Obrol. We both are fans of Shura no Mon series, so we've always wanted to do a collab where we talk about it. However, because we live in completely different part of Indonesia, we couldn't do it, until now thanks to the power of technology. In my part of the collab, we talk about Fudekage, the first manga series I've ever completed.


While on Ruang Obrol's channel, we talk about Shura no Toki volume 16 and 17.

I finished Ace Attourney: Spirit of Justice

So I could've posted this last week. The reason I forgot to do that is because I was playing Ace Attourney: Spirit of Justice. It was a fun game. The spirit vision (or whatever it was called) mechanic was so frustrating on later cases, that I had to consult to a guide. But regardless, I had a wonderful time. I'm still contemplating whether I should play the original triology or skip to the Great Ace Attourney. 

About these chapters

I can't believe we're already at chapter 300. This series has become a huge part of my life for the past 8 years. And I hope it is a huge part of your guys lives too. I planned a bunch of stuff to commemorate this milestone. Our Ake no Tobari merch is available on our Fourthwall shop. Please buy it and send me some pictures of them on discord server or twitter once they arrive.


Alright, here are the chapters. I'll see you guys next time, hopefully soon.

Ake no Tobari Ch. 298-299 & CnR-KM Ch. 42


Nanaten here absolutely forgetting that I have a scanlation blog to manage. My brother's wedding planning has been hectic. The wedding is in two weeks. I barely have time to rest. And oh, my cats full of fleas, which transfers on to my bed, resulted in me getting less sleep because they keep biting me in my sleep. My entire body is covered in bug bites and scars from scratching.

Ake no Tobari Merch is up

If you've not been watching my youtube channel or my patreon page, I am proudly to announce that I have an online store over at https://nanaten-shop.fourthwall.com/

We have some cool merch to celebrate the upcoming Ake no Tobari chapter 300. We got T-shirts, prints, mug, hoodies. And we're planning on producing even cooler stuff should everything goes well.

If you sign up on my patreon page, you can get a 10% discount code for your purchase.

I made a music video

Early this month, they released a Live Action TV Special of Great Teacher Onizuka called "GTO Revival". It's a continuation of the 1998 live action adaptation of Great Teacher Onizuka. This particular adaptation holds a special place in my heart. The 1998 live action was the first adaptation of the original manga, preceeding the anime. It was the first GTO media I watched as a kid back in the early 2000s. The story touched me in a core level, it legit inspired me to take a carreer path in teaching. So when hearing about the GTO Revival featuring the returning cast from that particular adaptation, you can tell how excited I was.

Back in 2018, I did a cover of the theme song of the live action series. It was well received. When the announcement of the TV special came around, the view count of that cover skyrocketted. That being said, I wasn't satisfied with the video because of the filter I put on it. So with the Revival series in mind, I thought of remaking the cover with a full blown music video.

 

Also I watched the TV Special. It was alright.

Ake no Tobari Ch. 296-297 & CnR-KM Ch. 41

Nanaten here. How is everyone doing? It's been a while. Anyway, here's the things that you've been missing:

Did another online appearance at Midtown Festival

I was invited once again to participate in a Karaoke event. This time I sang Sleep Walking Orchestra from Delicious in Dungeon. Speaking of, I remember one of the early review I made on this blog was Delicious in Dungeon volume 1. Unfortunately, it got taken down because of DMCA. Actually, a lot of my manga reviews in this blog got DMCA's a couple of years ago smh.

Doing one youtube short everyday

I wanted to gather a way to get more views and more subscriber on youtube. So I took one of Jason Thor's advice and make one youtube short every single day for the entire month. I noticed a significant jump in views and subscribers. The short is mostly a simple one, like twitch clips, or beat saber gameplay. Playing beat saber is such a good youtube shorts content generator in general. Hopefully I can gather enough to get youtube membership this year.

Preparing for my brother's wedding

For the past couple of months, my family has been planning for my brother's wedding. We took a roadtrip to visit the bride's family and get to know the in-laws. It was my first time meeting her, as when my brother started dating, I already moved out. One particular thing I remember from our first meeting is that she mentioned how she watched one of my youtube videos.

"Which one?" I asked.



I can't believe I rode 250 km on my scooter for this shit. Still, she seems like a pleasant fellow.

Ake no Tobari is close to 300 Chapters!!!

Yo, what a milestone! Three hundred chapteroos!! It's been eight years since I started working on this series. And we're getting closer and closer to the end. I already downloaded all of the remaining raws. Which is fortunate because Comico decided to paywall the majority of the chapters starting this month. When this series is done, I'm cutting all ties with that app/website.

To celebrate the 300 chapters I want to do something special. Starting with making commemorative T-shirts of Tobari and Reimei. I already commissioned an artist to come up with the design and I'm looking for a maker so you guys can order it internationally. I would also like to do a commemmorative stream where I invited a bunch of friends and we would do an online table read of the comic. Right now, I'm looking for participants. So look forward to that.

Onto the chapters

As per usual, let me know if you find any error or mistake in the chapter. Okay, I'll be working on Ake no Tobari chapter 300.

CnR-KM Vol. 6 Ch. 40

 Nanaten here with the first post of 2024.



Okay, bye....


Joke aside. I have been extremely busy, that it took me a whole two weeks just to finish this chapter. So let's start from the top:

Our VCB 2023 entry is up


I participated in Vintange Chorus Battle as a ringer for this team, Six of Hearts. Our entry for the first round is Queen of Hearts. Recording this was kinda tough. There was a lot of code switching between Japanese and English involved; some awkward phrasings; and we couldn't decide on the instrumental to use. Truth to be told, I wasn't very satisfied with the final product. But at least it wasn't the worst entry in the CB.


Nanaten Awards 2023 is coming

Oh shoot, I forgot to announce it here, didn't I? So, yeah. Just like last year, we're doing another award show type of thing that also coincides with my third vtuber anniversary. The voting period is ending today. So I was a little bit late to announce it. Whoops.

Anyway, if there is still time, please go ahead and pick your favorite stream moments here.

About this chapter:

Before you proceed with this chapter, please make sure you've read the spin-off Illbeck no Seireijutsushi as next two volumes details the event of that manga from the perspective of the dragon mages. This is the volume that I am most excited about. I love crossover chapter, especially when it's tied to the character arc. Usually, manga crossovers are considered non-canon; characters meet, interact, and never get referenced again; mostly due to  the opposing nature of the respective series. But not this one. In this volume, we get the explanation on why the dragon mages appeared the way they did in the spin-off series. There are some hilarious expalanation, and they all tied to the overall lore of the series.

Also, the entire spin off was published between volume 5 and 6. So if we're going by publishing date, that's the reading order.

So anyway, here is the chapter. As usual let me know if you find any mistake or error in the chapter. Next week will be an Ake no Tobari update.

Oneshot: I am not Me

 Nanaten here wishing everyone a happy holiday. I am currently spending it with my brother at the city. I've been so busy this past week, that I think I deserve myself a little R&R at the city and just hanging out with my friends so here are the stuff I did.

Did a Graduation Ceremony Livestream

I was a part of the graduation commitee for my campus and I volunteered to manage the livestream. This is my first streaming a live event, and my first time directing a livestream. I feel like all my experience of doing events and livestreaming on twitch has led me to this moment. And the result is... pretty okay, I guess. There were some hiccups and equipment failures, along with miscommunication with the camera crew. But overall, it's a pretty decent stream. Will probably doing more campus events.

Butchered Snow Halation at a live Karaoke event

I went to a live Karaoke session at a Cosplay event. Usually when I do this sort of thing, I would participate as my vtuber avatar as I couldn't be there in-person. But this time, since I am at the city, might as well go. Originally, I planned on singing Ch4nge by Giga, but I got peer pressured into singing Snow Halation. But, since I don't care about Love Live franchise, I thought might as well do a little bit of trolling. So I tried to sing Snow Halation but it's actually Baka Mitai

 

Except I butchered the Baka Mitai portion as well. I completely missed the vocal cue therefore messed up sections of the song. By the end of it, I just moaning "Baka mitai" over and over again. But it's still a fun experience. Will do it again next holiday season.

Played Beyblade for the first time in 20 years

Hung out with my old TCG buddies. The tcg community has a new hangout place which fortunately, is pretty close to my brother's. So I visited the place and just catch up with them. It's fascinating how much the TCG has evolved after the pandemic. For starters, I didn't know that there's a localized version of Cardfight Vanguard. I might consider coming back to Vanguard once the Bermuda Triangle support gets localized. Fun fact: Did you know that Citrus Project first started as a Cardfight Vanguard team? It was comprised of players with decks built solely on the kawaii factor. That team has long been disbanded, but their legacy lives on.

Another thing that's really popular at that place is beyblade apparently. I used to play it when I was a kid with the original anime. Back then, we played bootleg beyblade using a wok as an arena. Today, with Beyblade Burts, the local beyblade community is on the rise. I looked at some of the parts and I was baffled that they're available in booster pack. Like somehow, Takara Tomy managed to turn beyblade into a gacha game. So I decided to play for a round. And I must say, I get the hype. Pulling the string to let it rip has never felt so satisfying. I might actually start getting into it.

Saw The Boy and The Heron

Right before the writing of this post, I went and saw the new Ghibli movie, The Boy and The Heron, with my brother. My impression: it was alright. Some say it's his best work, but I wouldn't put it in top 5. I get the theme and metaphores Hayao Miyazaki was trying here, but to me some of the scenes feel like treading old threads to some of his more notable works. There's nothing groundbreaking, imo. Still, I had an enjoyable time watching it. I laughed at some of the scenes. It was a good time. Definitely gonna check out the English dub as well. I mean, Robert Pattison as the Heron? Sign me up.

About this manga

So we're doing something different. This is a one-shot manga by Yuto Oseri, Boku ga Boku Janai (I am not Me). It was published back in June at Shonen Jump+. I was browsing through rawkuma when I stumbled upon this one-shot. And I liked it so much. I mean, if I didn't I wouldn't have translated it like this.

Translating this one-shot took me a couple of weeks, cleaning and typesetting included. I thought I could finish it in one day, but I overestimated myself. Still, I'm happy the final product turned up the way it would.

So here is the one-shot. As usual, let me know if you find any error or mistake in there. Happy holidays.
