Like I mentioned…

kyuuketsuki hajimeru 05

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?

New project – poll winner announcement!

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…


The winner is…… Continue reading

Important news about Kyuuketsuki Hajimeru

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! 🙂

Ah, just one thing. The play of the 4th volume will be Cupid and Psyche.

How about picking up a new project? :)

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.

Kyuuketsuki Hajimeru Vol.1 – Chapter 2

coverA release of chapter 2!

Read chapter 2 on Pressbooks here: CHAPTER 2

I’m a little late than I thought.

The next chapter, chapter 3 is the longest one in the book, so expect it to come out more slowly.

Right now, I’m in the exam period, and also…
…there’s about 50% possibility that I’ll go to Japan as exchange student! – And that’s why I’ll be busy doing documents. Yup.

Well, that’s about it.

But really, I didn’t think Utaya would be such a hidden lecher. 🙂

next release

Dear readers, 🙂
please expect the next release of Kyuuketsuki Hajimeru after Christmas. I’m totally swamped with schoolwork for the next two weeks (up until the 19th when the semester ends).

I should be able to do more translating during the holidays until the summer semester starts somewhere in the middle of February.

In the meanwhile, please enjoy the revealed clear cover of volume 3.

* The drama play of the volume is Torikaebaya. You can read more about it in the Wikipedia article.


About Kyuuketsuki…

I’m currently busy with RL so my translating is slow right now, but I found a way to translate even using my cell phone so I try to translate it bit by bit.

And good news!
I have found KH volume 2 raws, so once I finish volume 1 I can continue to volume 2.

Also, volume 3 will be released on December 26th. 🙂

Some people asked about Birdcage Manor, so I present my plan.

  1. From now on I will release everything per chapter. (Not like previously released Birdcage per parts.)
  2. I plan to release BM chapter 2 when I’ll be somewhere in the middle of KH v.1 translation (after ch4 or 5 of KH).
  3. There are some novels I’m a little interested in, so I’ll try to do a preview translation of them.


BM – Birdcage Manor
KH – Kyuuketsuki Hajimeru
