Kisame: It's quite strange for it to rain this much during this time of the year around here.

page 4
Kisame: Itachi, you ought to be careful out there in the rain....
Kisame: I'm not certain what a cold and ruthless man like yourself is thinking right now...
Kisame: But from my vantage point, it seems like you're crying.
Kisame: It's a shame about what happened to your brother.
Kisame: Now you're the only Uchiha left on this green earth...

Notes: Sorry for the incredibly late translation on this. This past weekend in Japan was Marine Day and as such I had a fantastic three day holiday that was filled with laughs, games, drinking and other kinds of debauchery. I only got around to looking at this issue just this evening, so even though it's late, I figured I'd still translate it just to keep consistent. Hope people still read it though...

On a side note, for those who are wondering about Major, I have the half of the first entire volume nearly translated, which is why it's been more than a month since I've posted a translation for it. I've considered jumping to the current issues but I'm afraid of losing consistency and not... Read More " "

Translator Notes: The Karura is a mythical bird-man creature of Hindu lore who was later adopted into the Buddhist pantheon as a protector deity. The gold-colored "Karura" had a human body but the wings and face/beak of an eagle. In early Hindu literature, Karuda appears as the mount (avatar) of Lord Vishnu, and is thus semi-divine. In Tibetan tradition, Karura (Khyung) is a mythical bird, similar to an eagle, but of gigantic proportions, able to block the sunlight with its size. Remember those statues that had the three-eye Tomoe Sharingan behind them during the Deidara vs. Itachi fight? That's similar to Karura, I guess. I'm guessing Karura will be a summon type of some sort.

Note: Not too much time to do a lot of translating this week. Went to Den Den Town for some shopping as well as a visit to the dentist, so my time has been next to nil today. This week is the bare minimum, I guess.

Vol 2

Doctor: We were able to recognize that something's wrong with your left arm.
Doctor: It's possible that the only thing we can do is perform surgery...

Honda: Surgery!?
Honda: If we go through the surgery will it fix me up?
Doctor: Yes, however, up until now you're only throwing at 80% of your power. Naturally, if you go

through with surgery, only after you rehabilitate will you be able to throw at full power.
Honda: Okay, so if I go through with the surgery right now, how long will I have to rehabilitate for?
Doctor: You'll have to go through two years of rehab...
Honda: N...N-No way...
Honda: There's no way I can wait until I'm 30 to make it to the big leagues...

Japan is good for drinking. Woo. :D Yes, I went drinking before I came home and sat down to translate this. 300 just opened in Japan (yes, very late) and I had a blast. It was really good! Any way, enjoy the translation.

I don't know if many people are interested in this series, but I just started reading it because some scanlators asked me if I was interested in translating for them. I'm not really interested in translating for one specific group, but I've been finding Major to be quite an interesting read. I like baseball, so reading it is actually helping me build up my Japanese baseball vocabulary. :D

At any rate, I'll be tackling this series for as long as I can. I know that there are TONS of volumes but the series seems interesting enough for me to sit down and translate all of it, time permitting. Any way, here's the first chapter. I'll be translating this regularly, so I hope you guys enjoy it.

OMG I'm an idiot, this is Naruto 355, my bad. Please delete the other thread

I'm eating kalbi rice balls while writing this up. No Japanese this time since I want to finish this quicker.

Notes on this chapter: Since I'm not exactly the best translator (my own admission) there will probably be a few things that I can't really "get", whether it be deeper meanings or other inferences. One classic example being Juugo in this issue, where he goes "君らに聞くか?" which I interpreted as "You guys hear it..." but might mean "I'll ask you guys..." Since my Japanese is still not at a comfortable level, I don't really know whether this means to hear... Read More " "

Heyo. Wasn't able to translate last week's chapter because I was in Tokyo for the Square-Enix event. If you'd like pictures, check out this link :) Any way! To further complicate things, I actually had to buy a new laptop two weeks ago because my old one crashed and I couldn't save anything. Luckily I backed up all of my passwords and stuff onto a flashdrive. Any way, I digree, here's #354.

Holy crap I'm tired. It's 4:20am and I just finished this. I started at 3am (I was playing some FFXII on DS) and my brain is fried. My apologies if there are any spelling errors or translation errors. I'll try to correct them as soon as I wake up tomorrow. for now, enjoy! Anyone can use this in their scans, but please give proper credit.

352:The Motive...!!

The beast inside the cage. Inside, a soft sigh. The endless battle to control his urges.

Juugo refuses the offer...!

Note: I don't have the first page of the RAW, so it's not translated, sorry. As always, the Japanese is present for scanlators to match up the text and all that jazz. Feel free to use this, but be sure to credit me, thanks!

A man to man talk!

A delicateness that sees everything clearly and calmly.
A boldness that lives with passion.
A person that Sasuke recognizes as the strongest kunoichi!

Tricked by Karin, Suigetsu wanders aimlessly.

Long time lurker, first time post! I've been posting my translations on mixi for a while but I figured that I should bring them here, if any one wants to use them. Feel free to use them, too. I do translations as practice (I need to keep in shape, so to speak) so I don't mind if anyone uses it, so long as credit is given. I also included the Japanese, as I don't really like typing in who's speaking what. Scanlation people can probably recognize the Japanese and figure out who's speaking, I guess. :) Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated!
