Release #16 2020
Another release, another day in coronavirus isolation. I been spending my isolation by reading a lot of manga, catching up on my translations, stress baking, and then stressing myself out by spending too much time on twitter, because trust me, despite sometimes the sheer stupidity I saw on the Jp twitter, it’s the main and most trustworthy way to get info on this damn pandemic here, because this government sucks.
Anyway, I don’t want to get it political here. What a foreigner like me doing, criticising “not my” government, sacre bleu!
Anyway, three days ago, I saw a RT on my feed talking about this manga. Alright, it’s Oshimi Shuzo. You know, the guy behind ‘Aku no Hana,’ ‘Chi no Wadachi,’ ‘Happiness’, etc
I’m quite a fan of his art style, but his writing, not so much. I don’t know… I know a lot of people loooove him, but it always get me thinking how convoluted it is at some point…I don’t know… maybe I’m not cultured enough to appreciate it, but his art is definitely lovely. So, I read this out of curiosity, and in temporary insanity, I translated and edited it within two days. By the time I finished translating it, I regained my sanity and realised I don’t need to do this.
ISTG, IT’S CAUSE IT’S GENDER BENDER/CROSSDRESSING. I’M THIRSTY TO DO SOME MEATY ONES. BUT MAYBE SOMETHING THAT’S NOT CONVOLUTED OR LOOOOOOOOOONG.
But, you know, I’m not the fastest. I mean, I am fast if I do something, but because I do so many titles, things look slow. But if you look at my record, you can see I’m constantly churning out stuff. So, in reality, I don’t need to pick this up, or anything up, really. And I know the moment that I’m slow with this, someone going to come and swoop in. And I’ll be annoyed when that happen. Not because it got “stolen”, but I just have weird OCD about doing stuff. Seeing the styling of the manga changed halfway through turns me off the manga.
Also, you might need to wait long ass time for me to release some chapters on something you are reading, but I always do it with care. WE always do it with care.
Also, looking at Oshimi’s track record, this thing is probably going to be like 70-80+ chapters. Yeah… I’m glad my sanity returned…
To cut the long story short, I’ll just do this chapter. If by next month, there still nobody else do the second chapter, then maybe, MAYBE, if it’s easy like this chapter, I MIGHT do it. But if someone is doing it, fine by me either.
I’m not picking this up. I think. Enjoy the chapter.
Another blast from the past, but the tone and mood of the music matches the chapter so well in my opinion.
In the upcoming days, I will have more releases, Chiasa is currently doing the typeset for the rest of the Oh! Men! chapters and also one title that been dying to make its appearance. (I’ve done the TL since last October… it’s been a while to wait for everything to put together), there will be more ‘8gatsu no soda sui’, more ‘yasashii hikari’ and ‘Kaze ga tsuyoku fuiteiru.’ Oh, and also another title that will be replacing ‘Renai flag zero joshi no meisou’ (this also mean the next time I release ‘Renai Flag’, it will probably be all the remaining chapters. /cry
Please look forward to all of them. To read ‘Okaeri Alice’, please click HERE.
