Ake no Tobari Chapter 219-220

Nanaten here inhaling fumes from my brother's laser cutting machine. That can't be good, can it? It did give me a couple of merch ideas. I'll be selling some laser cut products at a local convention later this week.

My buddy, Sagashi dropped his latest album Re;Curring Tho:Ughts last week. It is available on Apple Music to buy and stream. You can check out one of the tracks here:

I've been using my Wii to get some exercise every morning. My go to exercise game is Zumba Fitness Core. It provide a good amount of cardio. Just 20 minutes every morning and I'd be sweating my butts off. I did have problem at first because I didn't have the Zumba fitness waist strap. So I just wrap my wiimote with velcro around my waist. It surprisingly works in a pinch.

One of the reasons why I decided to delay this chapter because I was super busy for Halloween, but not in the way that you think. I had to skip Halloween this year because I was doing an online log for a covid test at an event. It's really interesting to be on the other side of a swab test for a change.

I also had an almost fully productive week. I recorded a bunch of covers, some will be released as soon as January. I also spent a full day translating a bunch of Ake no Tobari chapters. And I did spend a couple of hours trying to learn the new Vroid Studio. Pixiv released the official version of Vroid Studio with brand new features and tweaks. Some of the new features are more friendly towards beginners, such as the presets, textures, layers, etc. But the program feels a little slower compared to the beta version. I was a little overwhelmed with the new features. So currently I'm trying to relearn how to make vroid model again.

About this chapter: I think I've mentioned that the second half of the Tengenro arc is my least favorite part, mostly because of the conflict with the Tengenro guardians. In retrospect, I do get where the animosity against demons came from. And we've seen a part of it with Kuize at the beginning of the series. But my god does it get a bit frustrating sometimes. While we're at the topic of Ake no Tobari, Comico made an announcement that they would be overhauling their website and app. That means easier access on the chapter and higher quality raws. The bad news is the higher quality chapter only available on chapters past the overhaul. Also I wouldn't know if I could still rip the raws from the website anymore after that. Fingers crossed.

So here are the chapters. Next week will be a Kaiouki update.
