Okay, here's the translation.

A question about notes. On page 55, they mention some specific fashions/looks that I wasn't able to translate. I could put a note, but I don't know if it's worth it, since I'd basically just say "image search these terms to find out what they mean". Any thoughts?

>> No.24960  


I have thoughts.

Any time you leave a term untranslated, I think that it's worth putting in a note explaining why you didn't translate them. In this case, I think appropriate notes could range from something as simple what you suggest, "these are Japanese fashion terms with no good English equivalent, look them up if you feel like it" to something an egghead lecture on Japanese fashion, "this term corresponds to this sort of dress, and became popular in this particular context, so it has this sort of connotation." Given that we're releasing this digitally, it would even be possible to include reference images in the end card or whatever without having to worry about printing costs or legibility on cheap paper at low resolution, if you think readers would be interested in that, and you care enough to dig some up.

But bottom line, I think that it's good practice to explain any strange terms left untranslated. If nothing else, it lets people know that you did it on purpose.

Okay, good points. I don't know if I'd have put in a note if it was just "goth loli" and "hakama", since I feel like those terms are fairly common in English. But "ochimusha" could probably use some explanation, so I might as well mention those two as well. I'd suggest some pictures, but these lines really have nothing to do with the story, and I can't find any good illustrations of ochimusha.

Here's a new version with the note and a few other changes to that page and the "mizuko" note. I'm still not really certain if she's comparing her outfit to Mizuko Jizo statues, it seems like it might be a stretch. But I couldn't find anything else that made sense for that line. And it's just a minor reference anyways.

There's a few bis of text missing, and a few lines I'd like to change.

is this sentence correct? "see a some color"?

>> No.25023  


No, that should be "see some color." Thanks for pointing that out.

A few more typoes people have noticed:
Page 11
"Yuna had a fever and slep all day."
"Yuna had a fever and slept all day."

Page 13
"...Right know,"
"... Right now,"

Updated, nice catches

Oh, oops. I got the page number wrong for that "right now" thing, but you fixed the right one anyways. Thanks! I've updated the download.
