Happy New Year!

Happy 2016!  There are still 6 hours here, but for many of my viewers, that 5 has already turned into a 6.

I also owe everyone an apology, and I think a short explanation.  Honestly, I don’t really like giving explanations or excuses or reasons for my tardiness – personal information aside, the end result is the same.  I still haven’t done it yet, and for that I am really really sorry.

Especially to all you contest winners.  Jeezus christ how long have I delayed that.  I am definitely going to have to check your addresses with all of you.  I’m betting about half of you have moved.

As some of you know, I’d projected that the LD translation, that the contest, and that various other translations would be finished early this year.  None of that is finished.  My only reason is that when I had made those predictions two years ago, I had no idea that I would be in school again and trying to earn another degree.  I figured, hey it’s school I can still keep up right? just a page a day right?

Basically the school came and kicked me in the face and told me that I was a stupid fool for thinking I could do anything properly, including school itself.

So, now two years later, I am at my last semester.  I can only say I really hope to finish everything in 2016, especially given the influx of visual novels courtesy of JAST and Sekai Project, and also given the recent interview with tennenouji that says they hope to release bad egg+ as the next year anniversary celebration (in June).  I guess the highlight of this post is that I swear I haven’t given up on the translation – it will take a while to get back into the mojo, yes, but I will definitely go back to it.  I’ve received a few concerned comments in the past few months, and I feel really bad about this whole mess.  I can’t apologize enough for being so tardy and stringing everyone along with the last few chapters in Bernardo’s route, and I hope you’re all still interested in reading what there is left when I finish.

So, on a lighter note, merry belated Christmas, happy Hanukkah, happy holidays, and happy new year’s!

Happy Easter & April Fool’s

No updates, but just wanted to wish everyone a happy Easter and April Fool’s day.

Just so you know, I’m plugging my ears and lala-ing “This is the Song that Never Ends” all day tomorrow.

*sets up impenetrable fort beneath rock*  >(

Life update x 2

With one week over, done with only one all-nighter (whoo!), I’m preparing for the next week now … with its 5 finals…  AHAHAHAhaha… 8DDDD

The fact that I’m writing this post in and of itself can be seen as a sign of impending deliriousness.  *bawls*

I so can’t wait to go back to translating T_T  I miss you, Giaaaan~  Giulioo~~  (And the others, but I”m not working on your parts, so there.)

All my X-mas presents are ordered and arriving.  I found this really nice set of UtaPrince figurines, but I think it’s going to scrape a hole in my wallet…  I think I might still get them nonetheless…

I’m really looking forward to seeing Hobbit.  Will probably see next week.  For those of you who’ve seen it, what did you think of the pacing?  I heard worries about it being too drawn out (it IS one book pulled into three movies…)  I can’t wait to see the dragon 8D

…One more week…  I’m probably the only person who views translations as a reprieve…

Oh, DanganRonpa anime coming out.  That was one of the PSP games (along with UtaPrince) I really wanted to work on…

Games:

  • Crimson Shroud (3DS)
  • Nier (PS3)

Playtests:

Edit:

I have received a few comments that people cannot reach the Ivan Best Ending with this translation/guide.  However, when I tried it myself, it worked.  I will make a walkthrough on this site soon, but for the time being, I was hoping people could answer the poll and perhaps leave a comment on the issue.

Thanks m(._.)m

Life update

Since this is a blog, I may as well start using it kinda like one, right?

Applications are going horribly slow, but at least now there are only three left.  I can’t wait for them to be over.  I’m frankly a bit terrified of the one school with a video entry, though.  Should I pretty myself up? ><

This week both needs to slow down and speed up…  Can’t wait for it to be over, but there’s so much to have done in the meantime.  I think this is the busiest semester I’ve had, including my college years.  That’s frankly a bit amazing.

I was very surprised by the LD poll results.  I honestly hadn’t expected so many people to just read the translations without playing the game.  Thank you, everyone.  m(._.)m

Things should smooth out by the time school’s ended (obviously).  Then I’ll have a stretch of free time and during which I shall curl up with LD and pound out something resembling a maid of honor speech for my sister’s happy ceremony in early Jan.  Apparently I’m going ziplining.  I’ve never gone.  I wonder if they’ll let me bring a camera up with me?

I’m currently on a Tales binge.  Just finished Abyss (for the second time, and now I want to start all over again.  Sigh) and I’m raring for the next.  That plus my fairly recent access to eBay has resulted in me going on a PS3 game shopping binge.  Sigh.

I was amused to find all of Sorceror Stabber Orphen Mubouhen on eBay, though.  At a ridiculously expensive price (compared to someplace like, say, Bookoff), but still.  The package deal exists!  Wow.

5 things and 3 apps to do this week.  Let the countdown begin!  *rolls up sleeves*  One thing at a time, right?

PS: I hate how my creative urges come the heaviest precisely when I don’t have time for them…

Games:

  • Tales of Eternia (PSP)
  • Winds of Nostalgia (DS)
  • G01 – CS (3DS)

Playtests:

Aero Porter (3DS)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy early Thanksgiving everyone!  Thanks for being patient with me =)

I couldn’t help making a new post to dedicate to my current Digimon feelz, so here’s a trailer for the new Digimon Adventure game that’s coming out Jan. 17.

School applications are evil.  I’m going to try to finish them all this week.  I can do it!

One new LD chapter for you folks.  You can find the lot on the side.

Updates: 

Also, just out of curiosity, here’s a poll for you.

Slowly but Surely

Slowly, the pages will be updated between now and … whenever.  There’s a few pages.  The rate they’ll be uploaded up’ll depend on my free time…

Don’t be discouraged by the amount that’s same with Ivan’s route, lol.  Only the first 3 chapters and half of the 4th is the same 😄  Then there will be more Giulio.

So, I have determined that school applications really shouldn’t take as long as they do.  I mean, just looking at the list of requirements, they shouldn’t take long, but they always do…

No update in lyrics, although there is one song that someone’s requested that’s been sitting on my to-do list for over a month…  Whoops.  New UtaPrince songs are out, though, or will be this month.  (Also, I apologize to non-UtaPrince fans, but I really couldn’t help the pretty bling on the right XD)

Now, for probably the biggest order of business.  I’m not sure if anyone who’s read the warning once actually reads it ever again, but I’ve updated it, and I’ll say it here, too.

Please do not use my translation without permission or for patching the game.  And please do not use my translation to sub Youtube videos.

Honestly, asking will get you more assistance from me, so it’s mostly in your interest to ask.  As for the latter bit…  That’s basically patching without the game or the patch.  Good job, nice try, but no.

Until next time!

Edit (Nov. 15, 2012): One of my more prolific commenters, Li, was wondering if anyone would like to help her work on her LD fanfic, sort of as an idea-bouncer and a beta.  Anyone interested?  If so, please comment in this post. =)

Update:

Games:

  • Tales of the Abyss (3DS)
  • Digimon World Re:Digitize (PSP)
  • Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded (DS) <- I don’t know why.  I just don’t.
  • (This doesn’t usually happen, but Unfinished Swan (PS3) gives me motion sickness…)
  • (Tokyo Jungle (PS3) … so fun ._.  So many stories I could tell on it…)

Playtests:

Delay

So, I vowed to not keep you guys hanging for another month or so for an update without some sort of post, so I’m making a post.

Due to real life stuff (applications, sister’s wedding, homework, graduation project, and standardized test studying), LD will probably take more than a month to update.

I’m really, really, really sorry for the delay!

*hides*

In the meantime, about the only new thing I can point you to are my fics under the Writing page.  They’re all unfinished, but comments / reviews / critiques are welcome.


Edit (Oct. 20, 2012): Lots of things have happened – missing packages, Youtube trouble*, tests, deadlines, and standardized tests.

However, I think I can finally set a date to when the hiatus will end.  If I don’t get an update out by Nov. 18, you all have permission to kick me and maul me.  Or just make really, really angry comments.  That works, too.

Again, thank you all for your patience.

(* This will get its own post later.)

 

Edit (Oct. 21, 2012): …I’m sorry.  I couldn’t resist the bling… >_>
