Wherein I gush and stuff over haikyuu
This is totally random, but… even though I translate Haikyuu!! and love the series to pieces, reading the final scanlation makes me love it all over again. Also, this week’s chapter (22) is SO FREAKING ADORABLE and awesome and I’m really biased because I love this series so damn much. I actually even wrote a fanletter to Furudate-sensei (in Japanese!) back when the series was...
Anonymous asked: How tough is the rest of jump (say, Medaka or Hunter). And don't call hunter easy just because it has no chapters.
ochimizu: ibuki-ryunosuke replied to your post: i can’t figure out who the seiyuu is for child okita ((It was me. Pfffft, no- I was frustrated too. I can’t figure it out :( )) I keep associating it with Kaoru’s seiyuu, Hasumi Itou and I’m like They wouldn’t do that They wouldn’t That would be Too grossly hilarious and ironic But it’s like, all I can hear?

Hunter x Hunter: Phantom Rouge Film to Open in... →
Holy crap, a movie with an original story that (seems to) focus on the Phantom Troupe and Kurapica? This is totally the month of awesome announcements, isn’t it.
It IS a really funny series, though...
Since some people might have thought I was kidding when I said PSI Kusuo Saiki’s level of text is “kill me now”, here’s one of the (raw) pages from chapter 1. Sure, there are some pages that only have about half as much text as this one (and some that have even more, sob), and the chapters are usually only about 13 pages (the first two are longer, unfortunately),...
Wordiness levels of the manga I translate:
Kill me now PSI Saiki Kusuo This would be so much easier if it had furigana Oh! Edo Sexpop Angel Onayami Soudanjo This isn’t so ba… oh god, that’s a wall of text, isn’t it Haikyuu!! Haru Polish Shiinake no Hitobito Could be worse, so I’m not complaining Assassination Classroom Nurarihyon no Mago
Reblogging because it always needs to be said.
lynxian: Y’know, people who go “aren’t there any scanlations for xxx out yet?” kinda make me want to reach through the computer screen and do some hardcore throttling. I know that not everyone can (or chooses to) involve themselves in the whole scanlation process. I understand that. It’s a huge pain in the ass most of the- er- sometimes. But just because...
Learning stuff from translating manga: ガラじゃない...
This edition of LFTM comes from a chapter of Haikyuu!!, and can also be written 柄じゃない. I actually found an English site that makes mention of the phrase, but a) my context didn’t fit what they were saying and b) the Q&A on a Japanese site about the meaning made much more sense. So! Without further ado… Question: What does ガラじゃない (gara jyanai) mean? Answer: It means “not...
Guess that Jojo quote 2
blakeshunger: Who said: “Hey while we go, can we sing Queen’s Bicycle Race? We can both sing the part that goes I’ don’t like Star Wars” (thank god for copyright laws of Japan) It was Daiya from Jojolion, I think!
wherein I quote more Haikyuu!! stuff
Nishinoya: I came to Karasuno because… I liked the girls’ uniform. A LOT! Of course, the girls themselves went beyond my expectations! And! Besides that! The boys wear gakuran!! Black ones!! Black gakuran are cool, ain’t they! We had blazers in junior high~ I seriously wanted a gakuran so bad~! Not brown or gray or any of those, but black! Tanaka: I know, right! Nishinoya: Yeah!...
