The Story of One Continent - Chapter 7

In two weeks I will be taking ten exams in the span of five days. My goal is to pass them all. Don't expect any updates for the next three weeks.

The Story of One Continent - Chapter 3

Sorry the updates are taking so long. This is my last term in graduate school and I have a lot of things on my plate. I'm still planning to finish this series before the end of the year, so please bear with me.

The Story of One Continent - Prologue

I know I said I was going to work on a couple of Kino's Journey chapters before starting this, but I had a busy summer and never got around to it. Sorry about that. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to Kino once this is finished.

The Story of One Continent is the 2-volume sequel to Allison, Lillia and Treize, and Meg and Seron. It wraps up some remaining plot points but mostly serves as one final send-off for the characters we know and love.

Once translation on the two books is complete, I'll post one big pdf/epub collection for the entire series starting from Allison, all revised and edited for accuracy and clarity.

Obviously, this series contains spoilers for Allison, Lillia and Treize, and Meg and Seron. Please read the rest of the series first before diving in.

Meg and Seron VII: The Fiancée out of the Blue - Chapter 10+Finale

It's been a while since I've translated anything this quickly. Here's the final update for Meg and Seron. I hope you enjoyed the series.

So what's next? The final send-off for the entire 'verse, The Story of One Continent ~Allison and Wil and Lillia and Treize and Meg and Seron and Everyone Else~! This is a two-book series that takes place after the end of Meg and Seron and Lillia and Treize, and requires knowledge of all the other series in the 'verse.

Translation for The Story of One Continent will begin in mid-to-late August. Once I finish that series, I will post one massive pdf/epub collection of the entire 19-volume 'verse. It'll be newly edited and revised, and hopefully it will be released very soon after I finish translating the series.

Until then, I'll probably unwind and translate a few chapters from Kino's Journey or something. Thanks for reading.

(Warning: this update spoils the ending of Lillia and Treize.)

Meg and Seron VII: The Fiancée out of the Blue - Prologue

One day early, here's the first (very short) update for the final volume of Meg and Seron.

I'll be starting the sequel series in late August if I finish early, or as soon as I finish this book if it takes me longer.

Meg and Seron VI: Student Life at the 4th Capital Secondary School - Chapter 1

I'm back to working on Meg and Seron. This volume is a bit of a departure from the others, being a collection of four short stories rather than one whole arc. This chapter and the next are very short, but the third and fourth chapters are quite long and may take some time for me to translate.

After this volume will (finally!) be the seventh and final book in the Meg and Seron series, which will be followed by the two-volume series finale for the entire 'verse. I'm hoping to get it all done by the end of the year, or at least the beginning of the next.

Anyway, enjoy the update.

Etsusa Bridge Series Compilation

Has it been a year already? Yes. One whole year of almost no progress before I finally managed to get this thing done.

So here's the Etsusa Bridge series compilation, which includes all five currently released books from the series. Bow Wow!, Mew Mew!, Garuguru! 1, Garuguru! 2, and 5656!. This version includes some heavy revisions to the text, corrections of egregious errors, Ryohgo Narita's afterwords, and my translation comments for the Garuguru! and 5656! chapter titles.

Get the entire series in pdf and epub formats here.

Sorry for the wait, and enjoy.

Meg and Seron V: Larry Hepburn's Trap - Chapter 7

Here's the final update for the volume. Up next will be volume 6, which I'm setting aside until June to focus on real life and Etsusa Bridge.

Meg and Seron IV: The Serial Murders at Ercho Village - Chapter 8

Good news, everyone!

No, I'm still on semi-hiatus. (2015 was a busy year but 2016 is the year when my graduate thesis is the least of my worries, so don't get your hopes up for a speedy update schedule anytime soon.)

The good news is that the final two volumes in the Allison series, Story of a Single Continent/Hitotsu no Tairiku no Monogatari (someday I'll figure out a consistent translation for the title) is being released in Korean, which means:
1. I am definitely going to finish translating the entire series, and
2. Story of a Single Continent will be translated much faster than if I were to work from the Japanese version.

This also means I'm going to hold off on pdfs/epubs for Meg and Seron until I've finished Story of a Single Continent, so I can release one definitive collection for the entire 19-volume series. Then I'll finally be done with the series for good. :)

Anyway, this chapter is the second-to-last update for the volume. Enjoy.

Meg and Seron IV: The Serial Murders at Ercho Village - Chapter 7

Terribly sorry this took so long. Real life has consumed me again and updates will be slow for the foreseeable future.

Enjoy the chapter.
