Akiho or bust, the neighbors don't seem suited for Nakano.

Valid! Honestly, I like pretty much all of the characters and want a happy ending for everyone.

Also, I choose to believe that this is the same apartment as "Even if I Regret it". A whole apartment run by sapphics for sapphics

I had a comment here but it's kinda spoilery so maybe I'll leave it lol

Hi all, tl here. Sorry i fell off this for a year, covid did a number on my pipeline and motivation. I've just grabbed the second volume and will restart putting out stuff in a bit. Thanks for your patience.

The art's not particularly good, but the script and pacing is a+

Damn that was good

I don't know if the scanlator reads this thread, but... You accidentally included the TL notes in the downloadable version.

Oops, thanks. This is what you get when you just ctrl all copy.

The game mechanic "explanations" seem a bit wonky. Puts on glasses, and voice gets nasally I've never seen a game let someone use a parry to cancel an attack, during a combo/hit confirm.

Like, I don't know about comboing off a parry, but can't you cancel into a parry mid-move, in some games or do you have to be in idle/neutral? I only really know parrying from like Bayonetta or Metal Gear Revengeance which obvs aren't fighting games (I can never pull them off in an actual fighting game)...

Hi all,

Schuyguy has gotten busy and I'm looking to restart translations, but I need a Translation Checker to help me finalise before I release chapters. If anyone here can look over the raws and my initial translations let me know. I'm usually around on discord; Jintor#7532

/edit belay that, AsanagiSeina is kindly assisting. Cheers!

Thanks for this one translators, I intended to do this as a mid volume break but ya beat me to it lol.

Guess I should finish up the first volume this week

No. Both people should give and receive, and that should have nothing to do with whose dominating or subbing.

Not everyone needs the same thing in the bedroom to be satisfied, what works for some or most people doesn't work for everyone. Whatever you and your partner works out that you're both satisfied with is inherently the "right" way to do it no matter if literally everyone else on the planet would be unhappy in your place.

This.

On another note, speaking of Weird Noises, I'm currently in the process of translating Gotenyondo no Koibito, the prequel to that series. It's gonna take me a while, though, so I ask for everyone's patience. It's also gonna be a fucking nightmare to typeset, so it's gonna be a ways off before I can release it.

Speaking of which, what happen to the translation of Weird Noises ?

'ronavirus meant a change in circumstances. I intend to get back to it at some point - at least finish out the first volume

joined Mar 14, 2013

you might have already noticed but with various world events at the moment chapters will be pretty delayed from here on out. apologies in advance but i do aim to keep putting them out, especially since it's a completable project. stay tuned

"There Are Weird Voices Coming From the Room Next Door!" looks perfectly fine and is grammatically correct.

For robots maybe

To be less glib I think it's overly formal for the situation

I've just realised that there's a grammar mistake in the title. It shoul be: "There ARE Weird Voices Coming from the Room Next Door!"

"There's" when used for plural countable nouns is fine for informal speech. I wouldn't put it on an essay, but I wouldn't write about sexy noises coming from the room next door on an essay either, so whatchagonnado.

Does anyone know what the untranslated text in Chapter 7's last couple of pages is saying?

My guess from context is it's some kind of stereotypically delinquent/regional/osaka-ben? slang, but my Google-fu isn't good enough to confirm it, so I just left it

joined Mar 14, 2013

Tbh i think the specific joke in the last chapter is less about 'being a predator is fine if you're a lesbian', it's more that Akiho is very close to the truth but because of her underlying (heteronormative) assumptions she flies way off base.

The series as a whole... idk, you'll have to make up your own minds.

Still the whole point of the overreacting gag, is that the listener completely misinterprets what they have been told, hearing, something innocent and imaging something lewd. Akiho came to the right conclusion, just wrong gender. I think the fact the author thought that would be funny, reflects the author's underling feelings about lesbian sex. It implies Fuuka being sexually stalked by horrible sex crazed men, BAD! Fuuka being sexually stalked by horrible sex crazed women Okay. Otherwise what the hell is funny about it.

I think what will happen when Akiho sees that Fuuka's neighbors are both girls, is that she'll at first go "Oh damn, I was completely mistaken. They're both women, so obviously they're genuinely nice..." before sooner or later seeing one or both of the neighbors in action and go "OMFG THEY'RE LESBIANS?! SO I WAS RIGHT ALL ALONG!?"

Laughs in foreknowledge

joined Mar 14, 2013

The author seems to be impling that Akiho is totally overreacting to Fuuka's situation, because of some humorous misunderstanding, but other than getting the neighbors' genders mixed up, she is dead on. It might be my overactive inner social justice warrior talking but it seems to imply that It's no big deal, that Fuuka is being sexually harassed because it's women doing it.

Edit: Actually, now that I think about it, the whole premise of this manga is a woman being sexually harassed by anothe woman is comedy gold.

the whole premise of romcoms often toes the line between 'this is a bunch of humourous situations also romance' and 'sexual harrasment is hilarious' imho

I finally get it the girl has the same "problem" as the girl in this manga
https://dynasty-scans.com/series/social_anxiety_vs_yuri
I wonder if they are related somehow

oh shit! Someone's actually scanlating this? Hell yeah. I have a physical of the latest vol but I never found the originals. Bless you!

Those clothes were simply horrible. And this is coming from someone whose wardrobe mostly consists of loose casual clothing. Sakurako should never be allowed to choose clothes for other people.

Oh, this is so great! Also, this just gives more evidence towards my hypothesis that Sakurako is the gayest name ever (what between Futaribeya, Tadokoro-san and this).

Don't forget Yuru Yuri.

i mean, sakurako did think the clothes were cute, but nakano chose her own clothes
