lol I love how the bugs are mosaic'd out. I can only assume it's because the bugs are nude.

It's a typical Japanese thing, as cockroaches seem to viewed as the most unclean thing ever. I think the only cockroach manga/anime I can think of where they're uncensored is Gokicha (moe cockroach) and Terraformers (gachi cockroach).

Now I'm just kinda imagining how censored the first Men in Black movie would be over there.

Y'all must have HATED the father in Flying Witch.

Actually no, since his only purpose is for comic relief and he almost always gets translated be some bystanders.

Btw: Are there new chapters coming to dynasty? Scans are already at chap 40+...

Honestly, I get the reasoning behind the accent, but I think maybe part of what makes it so distracting (at least for me) is that accents in text just don't work to begin with. I think it's a pretty natural thing when you're reading to just read in your own natural way of speaking. Except in cases where I'm reading something for which I've seen an audio/visual adaptation or tie in (and therefore have a feel for the character's voice and accent) When I read, in my head, everybody just has a neutral american accent. And as soon as I hit a "ye" or an "aboot", all of a sudden it's a neutral american accent that is forcing in random words from a scots accent.

That doesn't read as an accent, that reads as a bad impersonation of an accent, and that's what makes it hard to swallow. It's like somehow the experience of a bad dub has been translated into text form.

I do think the page at the front of this update was worth including, though. It was less distracting having a more thorough explanation of the reasoning at the beginning.

Pretending this is about a black-haired Scottish woman and her roommate makes this a lot more enjoyable for me.

Feels like Kae-chan is developing husband qualities...Or maybe that's just my headcanon.

@onyxpanda
A direct answer would be a spoiler, so I'll just say that this series is tagged Yuri because it's one of the central themes. x)

I definitely side with DYWYPI on this one - trying to shoehorn in English accents in place of Japanese dialects has always been a distractingly bad thing to me. As s/he rightly points out, an accent brings with it a lot more implications than just "different way of speaking than standard." It conjures a whole host of cultural connotations and prejudices (in the neutral dictionary sense of that word). There is never a direct analogue between what a particular speech affectation in Japanese connotes and any English accent. I definitely think it does more harm than good to a character no matter how integral it is to the characterization.

In this particular case I would much rather see her just speak notably more casually/coarsely in standard English during her "dialect times." That alone is enough to communicate effectively enough the dichotomy between her "put-together, type-A overachiever" work personality and her incongruously rough "real" (for lack of a better word) self.

FWIW I won't be reading this translation for the above reasons, but props at least to the translator for giving it this much thought. I just really disagree with the result.

Well said.

I think they didn't censored it in Arachnid either.

it is somewhat hard to read for ppl whose first language is not English... And I thought I'm somewhat used to broken English in general.
Still this is too funny. I can imagine if I got the chance to do what I want in the past, then get a job and a roomate it would probably turn out to be somewhat like this xD

Even with it as my first language I'm having a hard time reading some of this and I'm having to just guess at some of the words as I read this, makes it a tad hard to read overall. xD

Cool a new chapter, I liked what I read last time I think. Oh wait it's the weird accent translation one.

Ooh it looks like the translator finally decided to drop the stereotypical Irish accent. Good call, good call

"Me blood's boiling"

I really can't. Everytime I see a dinnae I just fall out of the manga's immersion and start reading that girl's voice as a stereotypical Irish man.

Come on, I was against those accents like 2 years ago, but when I got better at english I even started to like them. We can't have 12 pages of comments and 10 of them are complainings about the accent when that was already explained. Whitout a hard accent her personality will be missing.

Actually talking about this last chapter, I founded today that Momono Moto is from Kyuushu too, so now I can't stop imagine her with that accent xDDDDD

So here's to hoping they kiss by the end of volume one!

Has Nanami asked Kae-chan whether she's interested in women or not? Figuring that out would greatly simplify and clarify her life.
