Thanks for the translation. Isn't it "That is not dead, which can eternal lie" on page 31/i-118?

From the epilogue:

When angry, she's the type to cry when she can't throw things.

Umm ... quite the catch there ...

Funny for Tazune to say "high school is high school, but you're adults now," when he is clearly not over what happened to him back then.

So this maiden thing, is that the term that the older girls use to pick a clueless virgin girl in order to deflower her? I seem to get that feeling. What a bunch of asholes if that happens to be the case.

Sorta.

Unfortunaly it's seem that the wiki link have lost the part on military.

The military section was incorporated into the Monastic section ("chigo" definition in first paragraph, military section starts in the third paragraph)..

Frankly, I don't think he was even that good a writer, given how overwrought his prose invariably was.

It's funny how overwrought his writing can be while also somehow not being descriptive enough: "The horrible thing is so horrible that I cannot describe its horribleness in words!"

Huh. If the japanese phrase translates to "The scales have fallen (from my eyes)," why not use that? It seems closer to the original meaning and preserves the snake pun.

I've never actually seen that phrase used in English and wasn't really sure how well its meaning would come across. I was completely unaware it even existed in English.

It's very common in English--biblical, even.

Also manga is really gay.

I see there isn't a yuri tag, though.

Shouldn't there be a yuri tag thou?

Or perhaps a SCIENCE! tag.

@Admins: The chapters are out of order.

Edit: It's been fixed. Thanks!

I choose to mix up the localisation style based on the series and also the audience who might be reading it!

I appreciate the thought and effort that go into these translations. I'm reminded of what a professional translator said: "You translate ideas, not words." The writing for Rika in Go Out was especially great in the last few chapters.

All I can say is that I'm glad this wasn't about physics.

Speak for yourself! I was about to suggest a new tag.

These are various little single-panel comics by shimmer (from their pixiv) featuring their Angel x Demon couple. Chapters are in order of release date, and they've been grouped into a series because...same couple, same basic concepts, etc.

Cute stuff! Also does anyone know what's going on in chapter 4...? There's some soda, and...confused.

"Soda" is 8% alcohol by volume.

I don't know why this is all spoilered, but the demon needed the "liquid courage" to confess her true nature after the two had already been together for a while. Notice that the horns and tail are invisible at the beginning of the chapter.

I want them to fall in love and start going out while each still thinks the other is a boy, and then later they finally figure it out. Yaoi and yuri at the same time!

So ... Not not yaoi?

(If you really want to get into regional idioms, try responding, “Why bless your heart!”)

All the more fun since, in the parts of the South I've been to, "bless your heart" translates to "you're an idiot but I'm too much of a lady/gentleman to say that out loud."

Two new ships. Hinako and roomie and .... THE MOMS! All Sakurako's mom needs now is a piece of toast in her mouth before she crashes into Kasumi's mom, and ...

Glad to see that I'm not the only one already shipping the moms together. I can't resist that height gap...
And that last chapter was like really gay, nothing more to say about this

No kidding - last chapter is pretty yuri. YuruYuri level at least.

We need to get writing help from Mochi Au Lait: "Met My Daughter's Girlfriend's Hot Mom at a PTA Meeting"

Regarding this page:

The string 26891254 occurs at position 23,956,051 in the digits of pi.

http://www.angio.net/pi/

So ... Sakurako has memorized near 24 million digits of pi? And can recite them during the length of a movie? I think we need a Science Fiction tag since she's obviously a cyborg.

Edit: Vindication!

I found interesting to know a published translation already tried scottish as an analogy to an unconventional japanese accent.

I think that's a Newcastle accent, given the "worselves."
