... No, this post at the top here is not about a video game crossover between Haruhi and Toaru Majutsu no Index (despite how freaking awesome that would be), it's a literal index of previous posts made here.

So, with the lack of any feedback on my last post, I decided to just go ahead and start doing this on YouTube instead. Of course, that means going right back to the start of the game again. But I think in the long run that this is the better format to work with.

Back when I first started translating this game, my equipment setup to capture the screen and audio and such was rather cumbersome and it was much easier to do screenshots than videos. But a lot has changed since then and I've gotten to the point where making a video isn't much more (or even less?) effort than my previous format. And it's a much more immersive format too. I'm able to include more things naturally that I couldn't before (like Asahina-san's hint mail), so you'll get a little more out of it too.

While a lot of material is simply going to be rehashed for a while, I'll go ahead and share this gem from Phase 1 that I didn't cover in my previous playthrough.

It's... maybe a little late in the game to go putting up the opening video now, but better late than never? I've also got subtitles with my own translated lyrics for Bouken Desho Desho?

I'm considering moving the play through over to a video format instead of the text/screenshots/audio combo I've got going on. Anyone got any thoughts on this? Feel free to drop them in the comments.

So, I picked up Yo-Kai Watch on the weekend and I'm loving it. I'd say even significantly more so than recent Pokémon games. ... Although I forgot that Yowamushi Pedal: The Movie was on at the cinema this weekend only and forgot to go see it... Obviously I was inspirited by a Wazzat. Probably.

I was planning to post this last night originally, but something went wrong with the audio recording (it sounded terrible) and the PSP battery was close to dead, so rather than reattempting to record, I put it on its charger instead. Now it is charged up again, I've recorded the audio and am ready to post this update!

Reaching the end of our 48 hour period means going back to the start again, which means waking up, going to school and listening to Asakura sulk about how our exhibit sucks again.

... And now the audio is refusing to upload. I'm just going to go ahead and post this thing and add the audio in later. Audio has been added.

So, once again we've gotten to the end of the second day. And also the end of my currently stockpiled material. Need to figure out what paths I need to take to progress further and get back to translating more stuff...

... So, I claimed that the Pokémon novel was to be a "side project", but I couldn't put it down and somehow chapter 1 is available already! (Have you ever wondered what it was like for Delia Ketchum raising Ash as a single mother? Or the history of Pallet Town and the Oak family? Now you can find out!) I've started a little bit of work on chapter 2 already. I'll try not to neglect Haruhi too much...?

So, I've started a new side project! A translation of a pair of Japanese Pokémon novels. It has its own blog set up over here: [community profile] pokemonthenovel

To provide a preview of what to expect when you're there, I'm going to share the prologue of the first novel here as well.

So, my copy of the Yuki-chan OVA arrived! It was about 60% Endless Eight remake, 20% chapter 39 of the manga and 20% Mikuru's 'melons'. About half the manga chapter was cut off, and the ending of the episode makes me question the prospects of ever getting season 2, as Kyon arranges to copy Nagato's homework, but copying Asakura's homework is a plot point setting up Kyon's participation as a member of the North High Festival Committee...

Anyway, I have a huuuuuge update for you today, so enjoy!

Work is still insanely busier than usual. Hopefully we'll be able to get enough new staff to alleviate the burden soon...? Anyway, that's irrelevant to this. Enjoy new Suzumiya Haruhi no Tsuisou!

Oh, also, the Yuki-chan OVA is apparently out. I haven't watched it as of yet, but I have the special edition of volume 9 of the manga which includes the OVA on its way to me in the mail, so once I have it and watch it, I'll provide my thoughts like I did back during the broadcast.

Apologies for the longer than usual gap between updates! Things have been crazy at work lately and it kind of slipped my mind to update here.

Have you ever felt like the universe itself was conspiring against you? Because I'm pretty sure it was conspiring against me making this update.

First off, I was recording the audio for this update (when recording the audio, I put the game on autoscroll but I like to focus on what's going on so I can skip any unvoiced inner monologue to prevent dead air) and my mother barged into the room with a half peeled banana telling me I should eat more fruit, as I did my best to wave her off and tell her I was in the middle of something that required proper attention, she fumbled the banana and dropped it on my keyboard. I was fine to leave the banana there until the recording was complete, however my mum picked it up and handed it to me providing further distraction. (As such, you'll hear some silence matching up with Kyon's inner monologues in between some lines towards the end of this update's audio as I'm not wasting another 8 minutes redoing it.)

Then Imgur had issues, meaning it was damn near impossible for me to upload the images properly. And the exact moment I actually got onto Imgur, the batteries in my mouse died. I searched the house for batteries and found a heap of AA batteries and only one AAA battery. My mouse requires 2 AAAs. As such, I had to leave the house and walk up the local mall so I could buy a packet of new batteries and come back home. My initial attempts to upload the audio and the images both fail and Imgur continues to be a pain in the ass. This has taken a lot more effort than anything that I've had pre-translated for over a month really should...

Back from my vacation, had a good time. Went to see Attack on Titan 2: End of the World after getting back home. It took some radical departures from the source material, but was overall fun.

And here is an update. There's two audio tracks because the scene is basically the same as the first one at the start with the phone conversation with Tsuruya-san tacked on the end. I'll be going on vacation for a week soon, so my next update may be slightly delayed. (Also the reason this is a little earlier in the week than normal.)

I wonder if my readership has gone down since the Yuki-chan anime ended? I guessing it went up by at least a little while it was on the air... If you're reading, feel free to drop a comment at any time! I don't always reply to every comment left, but I do always read them and knowing people are reading helps to keep me motivated!

Anyway, this update only really contains new material in the form of Kyon's inner monologue.

Reaching the end of our 48 hour period means going back to the start again, which means waking up, going to school, listening to Asakura sulk about how our exhibit sucks, talking to Mikuru and going to the festival committee again.

I seem to be having some technical difficulties with recording the audio off my PSP right now, so I'll just say that this is the same as the second time around upto the decision and same as the first time round after the decision. As such I've linked both recordings below. (I had audio issues the first time I did this scene too, what's up with that?) Maybe I'll change it later. Maybe.

Update: Aaaand, I changed it. Got the PSP audio recording working again.

Nico Nico nii! Anata no heart ni love Nico! I have just gotten back from the Love Live movie! It was lots of fun, super adorable and possibly involved time travel. I was expecting the characters to spend more time in the US, similar to how the K-On! movie spent the whole time in the UK, overall a fun film and I need an animated gif of the shot where the third years all put on sunglasses at the same time in my life.

I would just like to say that the revisited version of this scene has one of my favourite lines of inner monologue to ever come out of Kyon's head.

And continuing my trend of being too lazy to re-upload old pictures, you'll find a mix of Tinypic and Imgur if you look at the URLs for the images in this post. In other news, I went and saw Matilda: The Musical last night and it was absolutely brilliant. Matilda has long since been a favourite of mine though, I love most of Roald Dahl's books and I totally had a crush on Mara Wilson when I was a kid. (... She's still pretty attractive even now actually.)

Other than that, I've been playing the fan translation of Ace Attorney Investigations 2. I played a bit of it a while back, but never finished it, so I'm planning to make it through the whole game this time. It's a downright brilliant localisation. ... I wonder if anyone is willing to do the same thing with any of the Haruhi games? (I know there was a Yakusoku translation project a while back, whatever happened to the folks doing that?) Any rom hackers up to such a task are free to contact me! While I love to provide people the means of experiencing Tsuisou (And to a lesser extent, Chokuretsu?) through reading this blog, I feel it's a much deeper experience when you're able to get behind the controls of the game yourself.

In the last "revisited" scene, I went out of my way to reupload the images to Imgur instead of Tinypic. ... This time, I've just got the Tinypic images because changing the URLs takes extra time and I'm lazy. Actual all new content will continue to have images on Imgur instead though. I don't have a whole lot else to say about this update. Still got a huge backlog of pre-translated stuff I'm sitting on. (Audio and screencaps are pending for a chunk of that stuff though, because those are the least fun parts of this project.) It's pretty late right now as I'm writing this, so I'm going to go to sleep now.
