It's time for Volume XII of Kino's Journey! Some of you may recall that I've already translated this particular volume, but that was something like eight years ago (which is probably more than half a lifetime ago for some of you readers) and I am not satisfied with my work from then. I'll be updating every week or every other week on Wednesdays with edited chapters, after which I'm moving on to Volume XIII.
Trivia: this update in particular is tucked away in the inside cover of the physical book, making it very easy for casual readers to miss completely. I sure did when I first bought my copy!
