Status update

(tl;dr: Hiatus until January. I'm not dropping this series!)

I'm not dead! Not yet, anyway.

Sorry about the looooooooong delay. It's busy season at work. I have basically no memory of the past 30 days except work work work work OW my fingers

So my job involves a lot of typing. Like a lot. You can see where this is going. Not even my ergonomic keyboard can help at this point.

As much as I love translating Kino's Journey, I can't justify working on it at the risk of actually having to stop working for real dollars. I'm going to finish off this work season, take Christmas and New Year's to give my poor fingers a rest, and then get back to Kino afterwards.

(And no, I can't do speech-to-text because I hate it and my OTHER job involves a lot of talking. :( Gotta save that voice.)

Kino's Journey XI: Chapter 3

Sorry that took so long. I've been very busy in real life and had no time for translating.

Anyway, this is one of my favorite chapters in the series: Ajin (...)'s Country, which holds the dubious honor of being the story with the title that took the most time and effort on my part. Enjoy.

(Also, a special shoutout to NullApostle for catching all the errors and typos in my translations! I'll get around to correcting them when I have a bit more time...)

Kino's Journey X: Chapter 7

Sorry for the long wait. This is the longest chapter in the series (even editing it took forever!) and I had a Very Important Thing to do in real life last week.

Kino's Journey X: Chapter 2


(On an interesting note, I think this chapter might be one of the few times Kino is explicitly referred to as a 'teenaged girl' by the narration!)

Kino's Journey X: Frontispiece

Just an FYI: weekly updates for this volume will be very short due to circumstances irl. But hey, better than yet another long hiatus, right?

Kino's Journey IX: Chapter 6

Sorry for the wait, and thank you for your patience. I was actually pulling a Kino for three weeks in Japan, going from Kyushu to Hokkaido and back by train. Unfortunately I didn't find any merch related to the series I translated, but all in all it was an amazing experience. (I may share a mini-travelogue on the blog at some point when my workload eases up?)

Without further ado, here is the next chapter! Enjoy.

Hiatus Notice

Happy New Year! And my sincerest apologies for yet another hiatus. I'll be off traveling for a few weeks and coming back with a new update on January 30. (I tried to at least squeeze in one more chapter, but that didn't really work out. Sorry!)
