How’s life going on your side everyone? Glasses-Kun is back.
Previously, I used to greet everyone by referring to them as guys. Simply because I was under the impression that every visitor was a male. *Cough* Hajimete No gal *Cough* Eechi and unrealistic oppais *Cough* *Cough*
It wouldn’t have been an exaggeration to call this site a den of eech-, I mean romance fans. Yep, we are all pure-hearted romance fans. *Glasses nervously sweats while shaking*
But recently, I came to realize that I do have female readers, so I thought it would be appropriate to stop using ‘guys’ now. Sorry my comrades, it seems our secret brotherhood ends today. However, what surprised me more was the fact that many of them thanked me on MAL for having translated Hajimete No Gal…
Eh…that’s cool. Girls can also like eec-, I mean, romance.
And yeah, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for chapter 2 of Glasses-Kun’s monologues.
If you’ve read my previous post at the end of chapter 1, you would know that I was taking a break because…I honestly completed everything I hoped to do with this blog and got everything I wanted to get out of the translation experience. And if I were to be honest, the previous statement still remains true. I was taking my time off to find new goals…but this contemplation of mine didn’t lead to anything new.
So I returned to my original goal:
Translate as much as possible and spread happiness as much as possible.
And like that, back to square one.
I lost many readers during this break, but I suppose this was inevitable. To those who are still visiting this blog called Dreamer, thank you very much.
Before I get to the translation project update, there’s something I want to say first. What I do is fan translation. Whether it makes people happy or not, it is nevertheless, piracy(#self-awareness). I simply translate for the people who are, unfortunately, unable to access the officially translated books. For the ones that are not officially translated, although some might ask to differ, I would like to think that what I’m doing is marketing. So if the officially translated versions ever come out in your region, please ask yourself whether the series made you happy. And whether you want to thank/help the author who provided you that experience. If yes, please do consider buying the official copies. That would help the author a lot.
Now then, let’s get back to the translation projects update~
Minamoto-Kun Monogatari: I previously stated that I left it to Mangazuki, but it seems the update rate is pretty slow. So I will most likely pick it up again and TL it. However, due to the 2-months rule, I will have to wait until August 12th, until I can ‘snipe’ the series, or so do translators in this community like to say. If you feel happy about this, please do leave a comment. As doing so would increase the chance of me actually translating it. Apparently, many people enjoy this series, since just two chapters got me 1600 views on this obscure blog. Yay.
BSM: I have other future projects in mind, so I will translate the raws that are already as much as possible before moving onto the future projects. Just like with Minamoto, If you feel happy about this, please do leave a comment. As doing so would increase the chance of me actually translating it. The future arc seems pretty promising, so I am willing to give it a shot, if there are some people who really want to read it.
Real Account: Waiting for a redrawer. I can translate ahead, but that’s up to you guys. Whether you want them or not. *Edit: Find the next chapter here
Future Translation Projects: I sent out a poll survey on my twitter to ask my followers which of the 4 projects they are interested in. I will probably pick up the most voted one or top two, so please do give it a visit here.
*Tomodachi Game: If this one wins, I will have to wait until August 28th in order to snipe the series.
So yeah, that’s about all for now. If I get to snipe Tomodachi Game, I guess I will be translating the big three psychological+messed up mangas: Prison Lab, Real Account, and Tomodachi Game. And that would be pretty cool. With that said, I’ve gotta go now. My mattress is seductively signaling me to return. G night~
P.S. Since this will be going on long-run, I guess I should spend some time to figure out a way to upload my translated pages all together. If you know a way, please leave the instructions in the comment section below or message me. That would be greatly appreciated. I usually work on jpg files on photoshop and save it as photoshop pdf.
#Don’t forget to follow me on Twitter so that you guys can know when I upload the translated version and also know more about what’s going on. I’m usually more active on twitter.
#If you guys enjoy the translation, please leave a comment/support below or on MyAnimeList(Tell me what series you are following if possible). Any support would be greatly appreciated.
