Wheeeew. Ahahahahahahaha. AHAHAHAHAHA. Ahaha… Ha…
It’s uh… been a while? I guess I should apologize for like… dying? Well, to be fair that’s kinda exactly what I have been doing. Dying. College was getting really hardcore in the last month and when I had free-time I usually wanted to spend it in a vegetative state as I watched YouTube videos.
However, I have a total of 4 final exams tomorrow, and after that, I’m 100% free from any more obligations for the next month/months (one semester left woo).
Yes, I still plan on translating Volume 11.
No, don’t plan on dropping Youkoso.
My “ETA” for V10 being done is like 1 month or some shit. Idk why you guys would even ask me for an ETA anymore at this point given my poor track-record with consistency and being able to properly evaluate my own workload/time approximations. I get really motivated sometimes and just crank out a ton in 2-3 days, and then other times it feels like a chore to even do a single page. I want this hobby to not make me pissed off or stressed, so I simply won’t let it and do things as I want to do them.
Instant Death was picked up by another group, go to them if you want to read more of that. I had fully intended to continue to translate Instant Death, but as I was about 60% through the next chapter I was linked to another group having picked it up. Apparently, the email they sent me got directed to the spam folder so I didn’t know anything about this so I ended up wasting a week or so of my time. After talking with them they don’t appear to be willing to drop it, so they will be handling it from now on. (Whether that’s for better or worse is up to you. It’s a matter of quality vs. quantity in my opinion. I’d like to translate it more, but it’s not something I’m thinking about much at this point.) (If I get enough comments asking me to continue, I’ll consider it, so please comment below.) Due to this, my focus will be on Youkoso entirely for the time being until I find another series (if I find another series) (no plans yet) (probably won’t be picking something else up).
I apologize for making y’all wait. I’ve said this before, but I will literally never just drop the series and drop off the face of the earth without saying anything well ahead of time. I respond to all comments on the posts here and I’m in Discord. If you want updates or reasons for my speed being slow, please ask. My response time is usually 0-4 days for comments here and about 10-15 minutes on Discord.
Just an FYI:
I’ll say this now just in case I haven’t before, but I will absolutely drop the series immediately once Seven Seas catches up to me or once I hear even the slightest bit of a DMCA or rumors of a DMCA coming my way. Once they translate one of my volumes, I will be taking down the respective volume in full.
Anyways, here is the intro to V10 Epilogue. Enjoy and look for more “soon“. (I’ll try to have a sizable amount done for Christmas as a gift or something.)
