> カナの苦手なものとかってありますか?

Does Kana have issues with food?


There is some opinion over whether having a sweet or salty tooth in the memories of egg-cooking.!
I had a sweet tooth of it at that time.
Maybe..Kana is not good with salty food...kashira.

Please tell me how to cook the Suiseiseki's scones.

Is this like an "ask the Rozen Maidens" thing?

Ok, so I just caught up with the manga in English till tales 42, and I need a rundown of the current translation situation to see what I can help with.
Too many fragmented chapter posts, doesn't help that bots are bumping threads out of date order.

1) Which tales are currently in translation, typesetting etc
2) Which tale is the latest raw out so far?
3) Which tales do we need help with translating right now?

So I saw people linking to Chinese scanslations which have them all translated till 60 and think I can help translate them from Mandarin to English.
I grew up learning/speaking Mandarin and English equally but my spoken Mandarin is better than my written/reading because I fucking hate reading Chinese characters. It should still work out as long as I have my dictionary with me. >.>

I can't guarantee that the translation will be perfect, but I want to help keep the English community updated with the manga, so answers will be greatly appreciated, thanks!

I think that would be great.
There are also an extra chapter that it isn't translated to chinese , so if you want you can help us with that too!

That'll be awemsome! Apart from that, I really do need someone who's able to help edit the translations to make it flow better in English too. It's like, a battle between translating it as accurately as possible, and having it read well in English. You can email mike and we'll work from there.

Tale 45 draft is up for anyone who's good in Japanese to proofread!

There's a particular speech bubble on pg 12 I'm having trouble translating and need some assistance with. TL notes are included. Desu_Cake, Janai Roll, I want to marry Kiraki, anyone? :x
Edit: Managed to contact a friend who's Japanese is better than mine and she clarified it for me. Draft is updated accordingly.

So currently we have a translator, editor/localizer, scans cleaner and typesetter on board, but no proofreader to help make sure my translations are accurate and for me to consult...

If anyone's interested in helping, please either post your email here or PM it to my account at mangafox so I can add you to the dropbox folder, thanks! (Or if you manage to catch me online on #desuchan)

I think I’ll come forward as a proofreader. This is my mail: [email protected] I don’t presume to be an expert on Japanese but I have some experience in translation (Rozen Maiden too). Actually I’d like to avoid making any serious commitments, but I think proofreading is something I can handle at least for the nearest several weeks. Also I’ll be glad to try to answer any questions you have during the translation.
It would be more reliable if someone else volunteered too, though.

Also I’d like to post my comments on your translation right away.

>Although if you were already aware of that and intentionally used his given name Kazuha (一葉), then I don't have any objections. This may not be very important to the plot but I tend to be anal about details like this and feel obliged to comment, sorry.

Ah you're right. It was a derp moment where I got confused as to which was his given name and which was his family name.

>It seems the Chinese version calls Jun something really bad, but in the original text there is only 荷物 (lit. baggage) that can be translated as "burden". "Troublesome scum" might be too much here.

The Chinese version used something along the lines of 'trash' and 'troublesome person', I wasn't sure if the Japanese version implied the 'troublesome' part so I left it in just in case.

Thanks for the update, Lampesfeuer!

I think it's worth summing it up that:

  • Anime will be produced by studio DEEN (which is infamous for some reason, but I don't exactly understand what's the problem).
  • For what is revealed, the cast is the same (including teh Rie, yay!).
  • Kirakishou will be voiced bu Chiba Chiemi (http://myanimelist.net/people/795/Chiemi_Chiba)
  • Two seiyu are listed for Jun, which can mean that we will see Jun from unwound world and the anime might follow the plot of the tales at some point.
  • Opening song will be done by Ali Project
  • OST will be composed by Mitsumune Shinkichi, who is responsible for the marvelous OST of the original series.

The fact that they invited the same seiyu cast, Ali Project and the composer from the previous series may suggest that the aproach to the production is going to be rather conservative, unlike the upcoming reboot of GITS, for example. Hopefully they are going to take the best from the manga and from the previous anime and stick to that.

The character design greatly improved too. I know it's just small details like laces but I think it's kind of cool.

Significantly closer to the original manga in design as well. Nomad did well, no question about it, but they did take some liberties in the designs.

Gin looks a bit sharper in the first anime compared to the manga, for instance.

I just thought, it might still be rational for you to join Kudan's group and enlist the help of cleaners and typesetters there, even if you translate side stuff. I can't speak for all of them though, so I don't know if anyone will have any objections. That way you could concentrate on translation, unless you enjoy all the image editing activity as much as translation, of course.

Yeah, the problem's on my end, my internet sucks. Thank you, by the way.

I use Wild Words for the regular text, Wild Words Italic for thoughts, Tekton Pro Bold for Kirakishou, Persia BT for that spider-doll, and Orator Std for the mouse.

well, the short answer is "From Japan"

who knows when desucake will translate another ch, I am guessing some time early next year, and by the time the translated ch's get up to #60 most of us will be dead from old age

ordering it from Japan and learning Japanese so you can read it might just be your quickest way of getting to read the story

Shit/fake(?) spoilers from what google and the pictures told me

Suigintou faces Kirakishou in Megu's body.
Suiseiseki fights Shinku who said she'd put an end to the game.
Both Jun understand that Suiseiseki is manipulated and how to help her (she is controlled by a thread and moves thanks to the clock, the chessboard and the clock are connected)
Mitsu wonders what she can do then thinks of a way to wake up Kana, she tries to take back her cellphone from Toriumi's pocket but too bad it was a trap, he was protected by madulin and stuff. But too bad, she didn't really want the phone but the key to rewind kana. And she uses it.
Jun reaches the bottom, the clock, and says he'll stop it.
