So, like I mentioned on Twitter, I’m currently in Tokyo-Japan for a study abroad as exchange student.
Good news is that I already purchased all 5 volumes of Kyuuketsuki Hajimeru. I still have to buy Solar Channel and Birdcage Manor – they totally slipped my mind (lol).
I’m still getting used to things around here so it’ll take some time before I resume translating. But as I will have the original books with me, I’ll work through them slowly. I’m the same as you all readers that I don’t know the story before I see the translation. I seriously need to work on my kanji reading skills. 😀
Also, I think I’ll have to look around where to buy a scanner…
In the mean time before I publish a new translation, I’ll update the project pages with chapter names and so on…
Right, I meant to ask, but do you guys like the Release Calendar for Light Novels published in English?
I’m happy to inform you guys that the “1st project pick-up poll” is now closed and I can introduce the winner!
The poll has received 550 votes over 25 days.
I’m glad that no novel was neglected as each novel got some votes, although 3 projects tied for last place with 2 votes each.
Third place got 47 votes, 2nd got 69, and the 1st place got 78 votes. Quite some leaps, especially between 3rd and 2nd. As an interest, the 2nd place project was at 1st place for about a week.
Now for the title that actually got the 1st place…
With getting a hold on the volume 3 raws I’ve acquired info from the author afterword that KH will end at 5 volumes. Fourth coming out at the end of spring and fifth coming out in summer. It seems that Mizuki Nomura has either been hospitalized or is about to be hospitalized.
…I’m only reading through the afterwords ahead of time because I want to know when the next volume will be out, so by no means is this info completely correct. Well, actually, I’m at the same point in the story as you – the readers, so I’m unable to spoil anything. Note that! 🙂
To add variety to the projects, I’d like to pick up a new novel. It’s up to you readers to vote for up to 3 projects you’d like to see. Please, include a vote for at least one 1-volume complete novel. 🙂
The project synopses are under the cut.
*EDIT: 7th February – Slight edit about released volumes and one project’s illustrator change.
**The officially announced, but not yet released, volumes are counted in the total volumes number.
