Surprise! I'm back o/ Don't expect many translations from me, but I will do what I can. Academics still comes first ^^; I will probably be focusing more of my online time on modding rather than translating.

This has not been proofread because it's long and I'm lazy :|

But with this, EXAMURAI IS DONE! \o/ My first completed series which I did all the way from the pre-serialization one-shot who cares if it only lasted 8 chapters!

Exhausted after another week of early-morning-till-late-night school, but the "end" is in sight! :D Though in reality, that "end" is but the REAL beginning... D:

Also, is it my imagination or was this chapter much wordier than usual? o.O Or have I been away from translating for too long? Especially wordy series like Bakuman...?

Anyway, without further ado.

This will be my final Bakuman translation :( Check out the news here if you haven't already. Somehow it's fitting that for my final translation of this series, the series itself is talking about "final chapter" :p Though, Eiji also says in this chapter, "see you again desu", so who knows, hahaha.

Anyway, thanks for all the support so far <3 You guys have been awesome! :glomp :squish :hug

This Week and The End (8 comments)
(I kinda wrote this a long time ago... And sorry for the melodrama, heh, I tend to be melodramatic at like 3am, which was the time I wrote this. Also, the title is reminiscent of Bakuman, no? xD)

I write this piece of news with a heavy heart as this is really not something that I want to do. Unfortunately, all good things have to come to an end. Every ending, however, is also a beginning.

I start with the beginning. I am entering a new phase of my life called "university" come this July. Seniors tell me that my course, in particular, will be hell - crazy long hours with hardly a break in between, and less holidays than the rest of the university. And that brings me to the end: this... Read More " "

Whooo epic multitasking. This took a long time due to said multitasking. Online meetings, editing documents, moderating the forums, translating spoilers and TOCs, helping people on IRC, feeling insecure about the future, as well as translating Bakuman. All in a day's few hours' work, yes.

Gone from 11-18 May~ (2 comments)
So once again I'm going overseas~

I'll be going to Hong Kong between 11-18 May. This means that I will be unable to translate Bakuman 131. MRI is getting a back-up, though, so don't worry too much about that ^^ I have yet to even do Bakuman 123 which was the previous chapter I missed due to extenuating reasons, so I leave it to your imagination whether or not I'll ever do 131 :p There's also a bangaihen to be done, I'll do that when I get back. Promise.

As for Mago 152, I am going to try my best to get it done tomorrow before I leave, but I cannot guarantee anything so it may have to come after I get back, along with 153.
