Tokimeki Tonight, Volume 4 Chapter 5

The next chapter of Tokimeki is finally done! You can pick it up here.

This chapter was a fun one to translate, and the editing was MUCH easier than the previous chapter. No crazy redrawing required this time.

Struck by Black Rain, Chapter 2 is done!

I've just finished chapter 2 of "Struck by Black Rain" and you can pick it up here.

This was a pretty interesting (but very depressing) chapter. There's a lot more talk here than in chapter 1. The letter at the end was really difficult to edit in, so my apologies if it didn't turn out perfect. I tried the best I could. :)

Also, the father character uses the expression 目くそが鼻くそを笑う ("the pot calling the kettle black") a couple of times to describe people who are prejudiced against atomic bomb victims, and I must admit I don't quite understand why he uses this phrase. My guess (and it is just that) is that he uses it to mean that those who are prejudiced could have been hit by the atomic bomb as well (and perhaps are hiding it).

And for the fans of Tokimeki Tonight, I haven't forgotten about you. I'll have a new chapter of Tokimeki ready in a few weeks.

Tokimeki Tonight, Volume 4, Chapter 4 is finally done!

After a lot of hard work, the next chapter of Tokimeki Tonight is finished! You can get it here!

The "find-the-prince" arc is progressing nicely, and I can't wait to find out what happens next. Also, this kept running through my head as I edited page 100 for what seemed like hours:

Struck by Black Rain, Chapter 1 is done!

The first chapter of Keiji Nakazawa's Struck by Black Rain is finished! You can download it here.

Just a warning: this series is very dark and serious, as it deals with the aftermath of the atomic bomb. There's also a fair amount of swearing and violence (corpses, skeletons, etc.) so beware. This series is nothing like Tokimeki Tonight, which I will have more of soon.

In the meantime, the earthquake in Japan has ravaged many cities, destroyed at least one nuclear power plant, and may have contaminated Tokyo's water supply. So if you have some extra cash, please consider donating to one of the charities on this page

Tokimeki Tonight, Volume 4, Chapter 3 is done!

Is finally finished!

After a long, unpleasant struggle, this chapter is complete and ready to read. You can pick it up here.

Please note that the second newspaper on pg. 69 isn't translated because I couldn't ready the headline on it. Everything else (besides sound effects) is translated, though. I don't like to leave text untranslated if at all possible.

I should be done with the first chapter of "Black Rain" soon, and then more Tokimeki Tonight. :D

Update: Tokimeki Tonight, Volume 4, Chapter 3

Just a quick update. I've been through a lot in the last couple months: Holidays, a Caribbean cruise, the flu, and working on two huge video game projects (one of which has been released.)

On a side note, here is a picture of me in the Cayman Islands.

This chapter of Tokimeki is proving quite difficult; it's very text-heavy and there are a couple of weird puns that don't work in English.

I also discovered a small translation error from the previous chapter and fixed it. The updated version of chapter 2 is here. Apparently Mori and Shira visit the King, instead of vice versa. :/

Anyway, I'm hard at work on chapter 3, and it will be out later this month. Until then, cheers, and stay warm! :)
