New Series Announcement
As I mentioned before, I've been working on a translation for a series I'd like to pick up. It's with great pleasure that I can now announce that my translation for chapter 4 of Itoshi Koishi is done! I have about half of the chapter edited, so I hope that within the next few days I'll have something to upload.
I have read through volume 1 already, and I have volumes 2 and 3 purchased and ready to read. In total, there are 15 chapters plus a few bonus chapters here and there, so there's plenty of content left to look forward to :)
I'm hoping that since the text is less condensed than BokuWata was, the translating will go quite a bit faster for this series (more on BokuWata in a minute). That said, this series has a lot of redrawing that needs done, and because I'm pretty bad at that, I don't expect the actual release rate to change much at all. The workload basically got flip-flopped. Comfortably, I'd guess that it'll be one chapter every 1-2 weeks, assuming nothing major happens to change that one way or the other.
To pivot back to BokuWata briefly, I do still intend to release my own chapter 1, however there were two major things that pushed me to release this first:
- As I've said before, I was going to work on Kagitsuki Terrarium after BokuWata, however the old SL group restarted their release right before I was able to start on my own. Due to fear that I'd lose my chance to work on a series again because of the old group returning, I wanted to press ahead with Itoshi Koishi
- The first chapter of BokuWata is actually very dense. I had gotten used to the few lighter chapters near the end, so going back to the heavy translation workload was demotivating.
With that out of the way, I will hopefully have that finished up before too much longer. I have no idea what kind of timeframe it will take, but from my eyeballing, 3 out of the remaining 10 pages to translate will be quick and easy. With splitting my attention between both series and Itoshi Koishi's allure of actually feeling like I'm making progress, I might guess two weeks from now or more? Who knows, it's not critically important anyway.
I think I've rambled on for long enough, so that will be all for today.
