before I will post the chapter link there is a request pending from some of you to me I’d like to address.
In the last few days some people have asked me (be it via comments or mail) to edit the older chapters of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou!
Since I don’t feel like answering every time the same to each and every of you, I will use this opportunity to do it here.
No, I won’t edit or change the previous chapters (this includes chapter 1 – 25 + interludes 1 -5 ).
Why not? Because …
- I do not want to change someone else’s work without their permission. I originally only reposted the chapters here, because it is easier for reading navigation and because the blogs of the respective translators basically are inactive. Treat it as service for the readers.
- It takes time. I won’t put my name under something I haven’t at least roughly TLCed and properly edited. And that’s not a job of a few minutes. If I were to really do this, there would be no new chapters of Hachinan for a while as I won’t drag the issues of one series into the release schedule of other series’.
- Finally, the chapters are readable. Some people are just too spoiled. Personally I have read translations that are far worse close to below border-line elementary school English (and that from a prominent translation group to top it off -.-). Since the chapters are understandable, all the grammar whiners should bark up to another tree in my humble opinion.
I do not ask you to accept these reasons with joy, I only ask you to understand and live with them.
Oh, and before anyone else asks. The links to new chapters not working before their release time is intended. These are only preparation for the release itself. The schedule is written on the right side of your screen. Be as kind to read it before asking. 😉
Well, that’s all from me on this topic. (Guess translating the Sunday web novel always drives me to write longer blog posts! xD)
P.S: I removed the chat because it didn’t seem to work, or I was bugged, or the chat was bugged or both of us were or because no one wanted to use it anyway … well one of those reasons or all of them. ^^
