Two new chapters of Yuusha Party today! (I’m also excited because I finally have my physical copy of the LN, yay. Now to wait for the digital release to add pictures to our releases)

Thank you to all our new team members, I now have a harem team of nine guys + myself! You guys get to see the fun things like when I translated a line by swag!Celia-san as “Calm yo tits boi. Cecilia is fuckin’ restin’ in her room dawg.”

Today, in addition to 15-16, we have an extra version of 16. While TLing 16, there were some moments between our MC Youki and his buddy Raven that were quite the fujoshi fodder (let the BL times begin!!). My buddy Creed said “Nah dude, they’re just total bros, no homo.” and thus, we created this bro-ified version, just to show how masculine and bro these guys are. So you can just read the normal chapter, and if it interests you, read the other version.

As always, read it on Google Docs.

As posted earlier, the 12 Days of Christmas project is still on going (see the previous post for details).

HaruPARTY’s version of Chapters 1-3 are now available! Read it on Google Docs

Sorry for how long these took to get out. Rei from Re:Translations tapped me on the shoulder (read: gripped like a vice) when I showed interest in Shinka no Mi. So I busted out the first chapter (which is 6x as long as any Yuusha Party chapter, oh Yuusha Party how I missed thee 8A8). For those interested, it’s a transported LN…but the first heroine is a gorilla?! (btw I’m 2 chapters deep and that gorilla hasn’t shown up yet, I’m so mad, give me the f*ing Gorilla D8< )

I’m hoping to get Yuusha Party 13-15 released before I head back to California for the entire week of American Thanksgiving (and though I will try my best, I can make no promises).

Also, Yuusha Party is now officially a joint with Re:Translations…as I’m stealing their staff to help on the proofing/editing =u=b (you can also find me on their IRC
#re-translations@irc.irchighway.net if you ever wanna chat!)

I hope you all enjoy our version of chapters 1-3! Thank you all for your continued support (and sorry again for the wait!)
Also I will be getting the LN when the digital version is released, so expect pictures 8D

EDIT: Just found out my flight is a day earlier than I expected, not only does this mean I had to scramble for a ride and swap around my work schedule, it also means I don’t have a day off I was expecting. tl;dr, there is no way I can get 13-15 done before I leave, so y’all will need to wait until after the 30th (sorry!) I’ll see if I can at least get 13 & 14 out.

Yuusha Party 10-12

Happy Halloween! (I’m PST, it’s still Halloween here!)

Just in time for the Former Underlings arc, Chapters 10-12! Read it on Google Docs
(we’re also looking into setting up another reading platform for people who have issues viewing on Google Docs, if you have any suggestions, let me know! Google Docs will still be our primary viewing platform however)

The first volume of the Light Novel version has been released for Yuusha Party. If you enjoy the story, please support the author and buy the book, it comes with pretty pictures! =D
And speaking of pictures, if you haven’t seen the character concepts by illustration artist La-Na, check out this post on animesuki forums.

Also, while translating these chapters, the issue of the Harpy underling’s name came up. I used my favorite interpretation, but I’m still unsure of which translation I should use (fantasy names in Japanese are hard to decode). Based on the Katakana Ha-pi-ne-su, it could be any of the following (taking into account that since Japanese don’t have a ‘fee’ and ‘th’ sound they are often substituted with ‘pi’ and ‘su’ respectively:
Happyness
Hapines
Hapyneth (based on names like Gwyneth and Lyneth)
Haphineus (based on King Phineus, a major icon in Harpy mythos, a bit of a stretch but fitting)
Haphyneth (combo of the last two)

If you’d prefer a different interpretation of her name from the above list, please let me know in a comment below! (or even if you like the name I chose already) I am still willing to go back and change her name at this point based on public opinion (if there is any).

Next release will focus on releasing our own version of chapters 1-3 that way we can provide you with a complete set, then we will return to forward progression. Hope everyone had a happy Halloween!

Chapters 7-9 have now been released on Google Docs.

I tried meeting the mother of the girl I like.
I tried getting set up.
I tried being incompetent.

We also have two new proof readers on board, MuscleSpark and Flyingjam. Thanks for your help guys!

We will continue to release in this format of multiple chapters at once, basically giving you a whole arc at once, since the chapters are so short. You’ll also find on the Google Docs a progress sheet which shows our progress for each  chapter, as well as a release plan for which chapters will be released together.

Thank you everyone for all your thanks and well-wishes, they are the fuel that keeps me translating at a rate of 1 chapter per day!

Chapter 6, I tried making a friend,  is done and ready to read on Google Docs.

I’d like to welcome Hobo (aka wtfjkp/madscientist2010) as a proofreader. He had machine translated chapter 6 previously, and I was very happy that he agreed to help me out on future Yuusha Party releases!

Right now Chapter 7 has finished the first pass of translation and is being proofed/edited while I work on the first pass of Chapter 8. We have a good pace going to release quickly for a while.

If anyone else would like to join the team as a proofer/editor, drop me a line at theluminaria [at] gmail [dot] com. Please make sure you have a Google account as we work exclusively in Google Docs (having skype would be a plus for me *u* )

Enjoy!

In addition to our sole manga project, I, Solistia, have also decided to translate web novels.
While not fluent in Japanese, I can use the listening knowledge I’ve gained over 15 years of subjecting myself to Japanese media, along with Google translate to help me see the romaji and Jisho.org to help me double check Kanji, to bring you a decent web novel translation.

The first project I have undertaken is guhuhu’s discontinued translation of Yuusha Party no Kawaii Ko ga ita no de, Kokuhaku Shite Mita, starting with Chapter 4 & 5 where they left off.

You can Read on Google Docs. (there is  also a link to guhuhu’s 3 chapters)

The chapters are relatively short, and these one only took a day each to translate and edit, so hopefully more will come soon! Look forward to it!

(Also Clayman is best character <3)
