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
