Another update of no updates

So, just as things should have started to slow down at work with the winter season upon us, what should happen but we lose our front desk gal…again…FOR THE THIRD TIME THIS YEAR

( ´༎ຶㅂ༎ຶ`)

I swear this position is cursed OTL at least this time she quit instead of being fired?

(≖͞_≖̥ ;;)

So, once again, 2 people doing the work of 3 people, and right before the holiday season, and having to train for several weeks….again

(☉ε ⊙ノ)ノ woohoo (not)

So the hiatus continues, cause work sucks. I mean, I love my job, but the situation bites. At the very least we have a good round of initial applicants this time!

ლ(´﹏`ლ) Please let this next one stick…

 

Just a small update

For those watching the translation progress chart, you’ve probably noticed it hasn’t been updating the past couple weeks. That is because I have done nothing to progress it .
\(-ㅂ-;;)/

Work has been ridiculously busy, and just when I thought I’d get some time to relax and translate as I worked over the usually slow weekend, I was suddenly bombarded with work that i had to do all by my lonesome (since only one person is on staff on weekends). Add to that that this week I work 8 days in a row with no days off (since I’m covering for my manager who is on vacation for a week…which also means we’re down to 2 staff for the week from 3) translations will continue to be slow if I continue to be bombarded with work (omg actually working at work, who would have thought! The horror!!). Sunday can’t come soon enough.
へ(´д`へ)

I hope you all will continue to be patient with me.

Hitomishiri Onna 9-11

Here for your reading pleasure is Chapter 9-11 of Hitomishiri Onna! Getting close to wrapping up the childhood arc (3 more chapters!), then will get into the as-of-yet unfinished Boyhood arc. I hope the author starts posting more regularly 8^8

And since Hitomishiri Onna only has a total of 23 chapters so far I’ve been thinking of what I wanted to take on after I’m caught up, and have decided to go for a sexy lady story from shosetsu’s Moonlight sub-site (18+ aimed towards females). Y’all can thank Estelion from Onii-chan Yamete for that when I eventually get to it! The story I have my eye on is complete (yay!), so it’ll be nice working towards a definite conclusion.

Other than that, the only big news about Soli is that as of this past Thursday, she officially has a boyfriend whom she likes very much :3 This will probably have almost 0 effect on translations, since, again, most TLing is done at work. Wish me luck that it works out!! *u*

Triple release! Yuusha Party, Hitomishiri Onna, Muimui-tan

Triple release for y’all before I fly down south for a couple days!

First up, we have Yuusha Party, Volume 1 Chapter 15. it’s a bit of a shorter chapter, but a nice wrap up of the Guardian Deity arc. The next chapter looks to be twice as long.

Next, I have officially taken on Hitomishiri Onna as a project, and to celebrate, here’s chapter 8! (beware the BroCon!) For those that are disappointed that I didn’t take on one of the other projects, fear not! I have been speaking with a couple other translators that approached me about taking over the teasers, and it appears as though The Lazy Sage and Happy Life will get loving new homes soon! (once they have chapters up, I’ll be sure to link them).

And lastly, I have picked up a much beloved (and sadly mildly abandoned) series, Muimui-tan as a Teaser. I spoke with Indra over at Kurotsuki Novel about taking on the project, and since the current TL for Muimui-tan is MIA, he gave me his blessing. You can catch the previous and current chapters of Muimui-tan over at MoonBunnyCafe (a not-quite-aggregate novel hosting site run by the one and only adorable Alyschu ♥). If you enjoy KumoDesu ga, Nani Ka? you’ll probably also enjoy the laid back, cute Caterpillar Monster that is Muimui-tan.


 

(Also as I’m basically running out the door for my trip, if people would like to update the usual novel sites in my stead, it would be much appreciated ♥)

 

For OreDungeon fans

I know many were sad at the abrupt discontinuation of OreDungeon (see previous news post for details), but for those wanting more, I have stumbled upon a couple English-written stories that were (obviously) inspired by it.

*Note, I have not read these in their entirety, just skimmed a bit, so I cannot assure quality. However, if you want a web serial that is about a guy BEING the ACTUAL dungeon, these certainly fit that criteria!

Mystery of the Dungeon (24 chapters as of this post)

Dungeon Without a Name (5 chapters as of this post)

If you guys have seen any others wherein the guy becomes a dungeon, or some similarly odd/absurd/hilarious premise, let me know and I’ll link it here ♥


Reader suggested:

Lair (39 short chapters as of this post)
I was Reincarnated as a Magic Academy (9 chapters as of this post)

Jashin Average (21 Chapter as of this post, + side stories)
Hisshou Dungeon Unei Houhou (5 chapters as of this post)
Maou no Hajimekata *18+ NSFW (5 Chapters as of this post)
Master of Dungeon (11 chapters as of this post)
Lazy Dungeon Master (4 chapters as of this post)

June (er July) Surprise Teasers! And General status of series

LONG UPDATE IS LONG

Well, it took a little longer than I thought to translate, but here’s 52 pages of translated goodness! (to skip to the releases and synopsis’ look for the #1!). Enjoy all these wonderful Female-oriented and (hopefully) Male-enjoyable stories! Although amount of chapters vary, they are all around the same length of 12-14 google doc pages. We have two LNs featuring girls reincarnated into fantasy worlds (cause why not!), and two WNs which are Female > reincarnated/changed-into > Male. Nearly all genderswap stories out there are Male -> Female (not just in Japan, but across all media), but I am particularly fond of the F -> M category. I will thus endeavor to get others interested!

Same rules apply to these stories as other teasers, feel free to take them over at any point! In fact, I beg you please do! (I don’t have time to TL them all!!!) If you’re interested in the LNs and need access to the raw, toss me a comment or email! Due to OreDungeon news (listed below) I may take on one of the 4 as another project, depending on feedback (so if you want to read more, definitely let me know so that I know people are interested! atm #1 The Lazy Sage and #4 Hitomishiri Onna are my personal favorites)

And now for a general update on all series!

OreDungeon news: Officially dropped. Not because I want to…the author’s account was deleted (something about a rule violation??) ;n; much sadface

Yuusha Party news: Translations will resume immediately now that my teasers are done. Look forward to it!

Jashin Tensei news: Maybe????????

+Alpha no Tachiichi manga: tbh I haven’t touched it much in the last few months, BUT it is still on my agenda!

Goblin no Oukoku news: I still haven’t really touched it all that much…someone should really take it over… *dangles it from a fishing pole*


In the realm of Soli’s work, there’s been another upheavel as our front desk gal has been let go. If this story sounds familiar it’s because our office just went through this a few months ago |D;; Only this time, I am taking on most of the workload of the front desk. So, I’m going to be super busy with work, during one of the busiest times of the year, and have to train someone new to do the job…again. Wish me luck 8A8

I, am Playing the Role of the Older Brother in Hearthrob Love Revolution

Author: Tachimori Asato
*Completed in country of origin

Synopsis:
I’m very ordinary girl who had no interest in Otome games, and was suddenly sucked into the world of a cliche Otome game, Heartthrob Love Revolution. That’s all well and good, I’m not exactly thrilled, but it’s fine. However, why am I the heroine’s older brother? I’m a girl! My character is named Makoto, and as him I hang out with the Heroine to help her get together with the princely character and make it to the end credits. All righty, I just need to support the Heroine while she does her best. If I do, I think I’ll be able to go back to my original world…but wait, why am I so popular? Hey, prince guy, don’t you blush at me!

Thus, Yoshiko, now named Altis, lives her life in this other world, her shyness causing a whole mess of misunderstandings, unable to rectify them…

Chapter 1-7


For those that made it down this far, I have come to find a strange happening on reddit threads when people mention my translations…they tend to reference me as a ‘he’ more often then not, so it made me wonder, do people really think I’m a guy? D8 Hopefully these teasers (and this official statement) will let those wondering know, if there was ever any question I am indeed of the female variety 8D

Moving (mostly) complete

So moving went smoothly, I got 11 people to help, and my roommate got 1. Got everything to the new place, cleaned out the old place, and spent time with my mom when she came up to visit for my birthday for a few days (although my actual birthday is tomorrow). There are still boxes to unpack, but it’s at least livable, the kitchen is usable, and I have a bed to sleep on (and thanks to my good buddy Bee, we decimated half the moving boxes just by unpacking all my books XD).

I’m now back in the translating groove. Just finishing up the June Teasers, so they should be posted by the end of the month! Then back to more Yuusha Party =D

…So long as this Riichi mahjong game doesn’t eat my soul! Damn you Saki for this addiction D:

Yuusha Party 13-14 | Moving iminent

Yuusha Party chapter 13 and 14 are live! Go read them!

We finally get to see Youki being totally OP, and his cheat is revealed! Chapter 13 is mildly rage inducing, but Youki comes back with a vengence in chapter 14 |D

And both chapters have illustrations!

Also, am I the only one here that imagined Mirror’s voice as Android 17 from DBZ Abridged? It just seems to fit so well.


Also I will be moving here in a few weeks (signing a new lease tomorrow). It may interrupt translations somewhat, but as always, you’ll be able to see my progress on the chart. If nothing has changed on the chart in a few days, I’m probably balls deep in packing and moving.

Also you may have noticed the “June Surprise” teasers mentioned on the progress chart. my birthday is in late June, so as a present to me, I am TLing some teasers 8D I hope you’ll all enjoy them when they’re revealed!

Yuusha Party 11-12

I lied…No Goblin no Oukoku chapter this time (sorry!). But I do have two fresh new chapters of Yuusha Party! Plus, 12 has a new illustration =D

Yay.

Thank you so much to everyone who joined my harem team! Look at this beautiful piece of literature!

OreDungeon re-write | Progress chart

So I woke up this morning to an update from Komanchi, author of OreDungeon. I was excited…until I saw today’s date under all chapters but the first chapter…there also now seemed to be less chapters. Upon further investigation, Komanchi stated that they decided to rewrite their novel starting at chapter 2 (with revisions to chapter 1).

ლ(ಥ益ಥლ y u do dis to me????

This is probably one of the few downfalls of translating a novel so early in its development. So please be patient as I look through the revisions to chapter 1 and translate the new versions of the chapters /D;;;;

I’m just glad I was so caught up in TLing Yuusha Party that I hadn’t touched chapter 7 of OreDungeon yet….


Also if you’d like to see where I am in translating stuff, take a look at the side bar and click the link to the HaruPARTY Translation Progress Chart

I had no idea I had so many F5 fans, as I’ve seen plenty of anons looking at it without me actually posting an announcement for it (until now). Thank you devout F5ers, you made my day.
