Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Chapter 28: Associate Baron Baumeister

Heyas folks,

before I will post the chapter link there is a request pending from some of you to me I’d like to address.

In the last few days some people have asked me (be it via comments or mail) to edit the older chapters of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou!

Since I don’t feel like answering every time the same to each and every of you, I will use this opportunity to do it here.

No, I won’t edit or change the previous chapters (this includes chapter 1 – 25 + interludes 1 -5 ).

Why not? Because …

  • I do not want to change someone else’s work without their permission. I originally only reposted the chapters here, because it is easier for reading navigation and because the blogs of the respective translators basically are inactive. Treat it as service for the readers.
  • It takes time. I won’t put my name under something I haven’t at least roughly TLCed and properly edited. And that’s not a job of a few minutes. If I were to really do this, there would be no new chapters of Hachinan for a while as I won’t drag the issues of one series into the release schedule of other series’.
  • Finally, the chapters are readable. Some people are just too spoiled. Personally I have read translations that are far worse close to below border-line elementary school English (and that from a prominent translation group to top it off -.-). Since the chapters are understandable, all the grammar whiners should bark up to another tree in my humble opinion.

I do not ask you to accept these reasons with joy, I only ask you to understand and live with them.

Oh, and before anyone else asks. The links to new chapters not working before their release time is intended. These are only preparation for the release itself. The schedule is written on the right side of your screen. Be as kind to read it before asking. 😉

Well, that’s all from me on this topic. (Guess translating the Sunday web novel always drives me to write longer blog posts! xD)

And here is your chapter, have fun reading it !

 

Greetings,

Shasu-pyon

 

P.S: I removed the chat because it didn’t seem to work, or I was bugged, or the chat was bugged or both of us were or because no one wanted to use it anyway … well one of those reasons or all of them. ^^

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Chapter 27: Audience with His Majesty

Heyas folks,

today I have released the new Chapter of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! but before giving the link, I’d like to announce two important things:

First off, originally the “next chapter” would have been Interlude 6. Personally as a reader I don’t really care about interludes/intermissions as they most of the times give only side stories of unimportant characters or occurrences.  Of course, that doesn’t mean that I won’t translate them though. I will handle them as side projects and try to release them within 5 chapters after emergence. This applies to all series I am translating, too.

Second, the translator who has translated chapter 25 of Hachinan tte sore wa nai deshou! unfortunately forgot a bit of text at the end of the chapter. I have translated and added the missing part to the chapter. You should read it here.

Well that was all from me, enjoy Chapter 27 – Audience with His Majesty!

Kuro no Shoukan Samurai – Chapter 5 will be released on Monday, the 6th July at 8 PM GMT.

 

Greetings,

Shasu

 

P.S.: I changed the style a bit in order to move the menu bar below the banner and make it easier on the eyes as a whole.

I hope you like this one. If not, feel free to comment and I will revert it.

Hachinan tte, Sore wa Nai Deshou! Chapter 26

Heyas folks,

it was indeed an uphill battle. Some statistics to get an idea: 7500 words in 600 lines with 35k characters excluding blanks. Longest chapter I have done yet, but … It’s dead, Jim!

As for the title of the chapter… NO, I didn’t forget it! I just don’t think you want to be spoilered, so for those who reeeeeeaalllyy need to know the title, you can scroll down to the end of the chapter.

Well, all in all … quite the unusually exciting chapter for Hachinan and most likely the opening gong of a new arc, is my guess. ^^

Have fun reading chapter 26 here!

Hachi-nan: Short update

In case of those wondering what’s going on with Hachi-nan I thought I would provide a bit information:

First off, against my expectations it seems like the chapters of the web novel got the length of a regular light novel chapter (In this case 3 times the length of an Yomigaeri no Maou chapters or in other words about 50k characters). Thus I will move the scheduling for this series from Saturday to Sunday. Current status of translation is at 40%.

I will try to release Chapter 26 on Saturday at 8 PM GMT but as mentioned above, no promises there.

Now some may be surprised: “Chapter 26, huh? That was translated already!”

Well, the previous translators counted the 5 Interludes as regular chapters. Thus I will fix the numerical order to the default way of numbering for web novel translations as the author didn’t count the interludes as chapters neither.

Same as Nidoume no Jinsei wo Sekai de (check out the Table of Contents for reference) I will copy the previous chapters with the correct numbering to this blog. This might be non-standard method of handling things, but I think that it is acceptable considering the fact that most of the chapters are on an inactive blog anyway and it should increase readability for those who want to catch up with the series.

Lastly, the naming of locations and persons will change a bit with the upcoming chapter, so be sure to read the notes at the beginning of the chapter.

 

Greetings,

Shasu

Hachi-nan

Heyas folks,

to avoid confusion and multiple claims I am posting this as a blog message.

The translator who was working on Hachi-nan put the series on hold for an undefined time. See here in the comments.

Since this is a project I wanted to do before anyway, I am going to pick up the series which will complete my weekly line up.

In case some of you are worried that I am overloading myself:

  • Kuro no Shoukan Samurai: time required per chapter: 3-5 hours (half day)
  • Nidoume no Jinsei wo Sekai de: time required per chapter: 7-9 hours (1 day)
  • Yomigaeri no Maou: time required per chapter: 14-18 hours (2 days)

Thus leaving me with quite a bit of leeway not including increase of speed as proficiency goes up with time.

As for exact release day and changes in entire schedule I will keep you up to date as soon as I got a feeling how the translation of Hachi-nan goes.

I will start from Chapter 31 after I finished Yomigaeri no Maou Chapter 24 (40% currently).

Over and out,

Shasu
