Here I am (First entry)
26 November 2013

I'll be hospitalized for a while.
Until the condition of my body improves, I may not be able to draw.
Until then, I thought about writing a diary here every day.

Translation from http://menhera.net/20131126/

Do you feel lonely, or do you enjoy loneliness? (Second Entry
27 November 2013

Fundamentally, perhaps you could say I like being alone.
It's just that sometimes I get excessively lonely.
But that doesn't necessarily mean I feel I want to be cared by someone.

It's in this state where I myself don't understand my own feelings that I usually pass the whole day at home.
What I'm saying is that solitude isn't inside the forest, but on the streets.
Even if humans are completely alone, they don't feel unexpected loneliness.

I want to go to someplace nobody else knows.

Translation from http://menhera.net/20131127/

Sleepless night. The truth is I don't want to sleep tonight. (Third entry).
28 November 2013

I feel like there's something I've left undone.
But I don't know what it is.
While I may say that I just can't sleep, the truth may be that I just don't want to sleep.

At that time, I casually went out for a midnight stroll.
The empty park at midnight is a bit cold at this time of the year.
I sat on a bench to think about what happened today.
For me, these kind of times are something I need.

Translation from http://menhera.net/20131128/


Feel free to fix any error, I'm not confident in some of those but I couldn't come with something better. Sorry.
I will try translating the rest, it helps me with japanese after all, but again, I can't guarantee the quality of the translations.

>I wonder why she's doing this.

The blog name is "Menhera", which is a slang for mentally ill people (Men = Mental, hera = health). Apparently there's more info on newer pages bug I still haven't read past what I translated, except for the last entry that talks about a bullying counselor and a doujin circle, but I just skimmed over it.

>>14116
It actually helps me with japanese since I'm forced to read thoroughly and make sense of the post first before attempting translation, so I will give it a try. Just a few entries per day, though.

By the way, I misread "入院していました" as "入院しています" on the first entry. It actually says "I was hospitalized for a while" instead of "I'll be hospitalized for a while".

"My head hurts" is my favorite phrase. (4th entry)
29 November 2013

Today my head hurts.
My head always hurts.
I can't let go of my headache medicine.

In this kind of days I don't want to do anything.
I want to hole myself inside my house and stay there forever.
I started to think about the meaning of life.

What are humans living for?

Translated from http://menhera.net/20131129/

Unhappiness doesn't come alone (5th entry)
30 November 2013

The night is silent, and the people outside is scarce too.
I limit my trips to the night only.
I hate meeting with people, I don't want to see anyone.
To be able to live without meeting anyone is the best.

Or rather, maybe the comfort of being completely dead.
I say that unhappiness doesn't come alone, but lately only things I hate keep happening.

I wonder how can one become a human with good luck.

Translated from http://menhera.net/20131130/

The town* where I live. (6th entry)
01 December 2013

The town where I live.
During the day and also during the night the lights never go off.
But, unexpectedly from me, maybe I like this town.

In the night, I think about taking a stroll.
It's lonely, somehow…
I think about it way too much and it makes me want to cry.

How miserable I am…

It can also mean "my street" instead of "my town", I went for the most common meaning.

After a long time, I'm about to leave. (7th entry)
02 December 2013

Going out isn't really something rare for me, but today I went out on a trip and took the metro.
As expected, I hate when there are lots of people, so I went out because it was already night.
But the rush hour train on the way back home was obviously packed, making me feel sick.

I don't really understand what I want to do.
Basically, even if I tried doing something, the motivation won't come.
In the past I also had hobbies, but I never thought about trying them seriously.

I feel I've been always living without doing anything.

Today I stayed inside my house all the day. (8th entry).
03 December 2013

Today I stayed inside my house all the day.
That's why I haven't written much.
I haven't gone to the convenience store either, staying inside without doing anything the whole time.

But, during today's night, I felt awfully fruitless.
Thus, wasting one day, maybe soon my life will end too.

If that's the case, what was my life for.

Translated from http://menhera.net/20131203/

After a long time I drew something. (9th entry)
04 December 2013

I drew my first drawing since I left the hospital.
Being unable to draw as I wanted, I couldn't stop the tears.
I can't draw the things I could draw until now.

I can't also draw everyday as I used to.
Every time I try drawing I feel sorrowful and like crying.

I will draw again the next day I start feeling well.

Dying is a short-moment pain, Living is a life-long pain. (10th entry)
05 December 2013

The title of my very first drawing.
Living is fundamentally harsh.

If you are alive, good things happen.
There are people who say such things, but my life until now has had an overwhelming number of bitter moments.
If these painful things keep occurring in my life, I wonder if just dying wouldn't be the most relieving choice.

One day while thinking like that, I started drawing.
If I turn my emotions into drawings and sentences, I feel sightly more at ease.

I want to die… (11th entry)
06 December 2013

I wonder by what means I can die peacefully…
I looked at methods to die on the internet.
But, when I came to, I was looking at a page against suicide.

In the end, I wonder what my feelings really are.
I wonder if my feelings to die amount to the same quantity as my thoughts about living.

I myself don't know.

I'm feeling bad since yesterday. (12th entry)
07 December 2013

Things like suddenly feeling nausea or having a headache are some problems I have pretty often.
But I always heal up fast, although this time it's taking a bit longer.

It isn't just mental, my body is weak too.
Since long ago I'd just collapse from anemia.
I think that my unhappiness has been decided since the time I was born.

I had a really scary dream. (13th entry)
08 December 2013

This morning, I dreamed a really scary dream.
I was being chased by somebody I didn't know, and it seemed like I was killed.
I was running away pretty frantically.

It was so scary that I couldn't stop my tears for a moment.
Maybe I'm thinking I want to live inside my subconscious.

My throat hurts. I caught a cold. (14th entry)
09 December 2013

The truth is that I want to be helped by someone else.
I think about it every day.
But, although I think about it, I can't really come to say it.

Even when inside my mind there's a voice yelling so hard it becomes hoarse.
I can't rely on someone.

All the people I relied on in the past got separated from me.
In any case, even if I had expectations on other people it would come to nothing.
That's what I always feel.

Having someone to really depend on is a blessing.

Do you think you're unhappy? (18th entry)

I always felt I was an unhappy person.
And so, I started thinking about pushing my unhappiness into someone else.
Anyone was okay… to take this misfortune from me.

Before long, I started to think I'm not the only one feeling unhappy.
If I thought that way, I felt that piece by piece my emotions were put at ease.

I was pretty broken.
This is already an old story.

If you're hated by the person you really like… (24th entry)
03 February 2014

Lately, I've received a lot of messages consulting me for love problems.
If there was someone I liked, there would be no choice but to convey my feelings honestly.

Before someone takes the chance away, I want to make it mine.
If it's already late and someone made it theirs, I want to snatch it away for my own.
If I had a person I really liked, I'd accustom myself.

After three years, no matter how tragic the unrequited love was, I'd think of it as good learning experience.
I could think that because that disappointed love happened, I exist today as myself.

If I was hated by the person I liked, and felt like dying, that would be splendid.
That much would be proof that I like that person.

I miss those old days…

Reminded me of a certain someone who talked about killing herself over her brother's death here.

Well, thoughts on our little star aren't the best but i guess as long as she keeps drawing, she'll be fine. Just being alive does the trick for the mind. As we can see, her last post was just this month, so well done keeping sorrow locked in time. Hope our other time leaper here from uboa finds her way back from heaven and decides to post again.

Not really, to be honest. I just know basic grammar and lots of words/verbs here and there thanks to anime/games, but there's still a lot I'm missing. That's why I'm translating this and adding unknown words, kanji and slang to my dictionary for studying and thus improving my vocabulary, and god, it's doing wonders.

>Kinda glad i've posted about this person here, her art had caught my attention and then i've started reading her sad tweets and wondered.

You have probably noticed, but she reminds me a lot of Irisu. I agree with her followers that reading her posts is soothing in some way, even when somehow sad. Personally, it also reminds me when I first started playing Yume Nikki too… the depressive/sad situations that some humans face for multiple circumstances, and how it affects people to the point of cases such as becoming a hikikomori. Maybe it's just me being morbid, but I think that even sadness has some beauty. And even when the person going through it will probably shout at "you are a fucker", I can't help but feel that way.

>>14158
>RT usually means "retweet"; I think the context of that entry was that she was making something along the lines of a giveaway.
Oh, so that's what it meant. Fuck, I had a hell of a time trying to deal with that part because I didn't understand what was exactly the topic of the whole thing.

It'd be fine if I always was a mentally ill person, right?

The thing about being kind to others (44th entry)
28 May 2014

One can't leave no room inside their mind to be kind to other people.
If you didn't, you'd hit on others coldly and hurt them.
And later, once you came to your senses, you'd ask yourself why did you say such cruel things, and the guilty feelings will make your tears come.

Those who can be kind to others, who leave room for that in their minds, they have a strong heart.
You, at the present time, can you be kind to others?

The first work entrusted to me since I became a full-fledged member of society (47th entry)
25 June 2014

Although I think the number of people I know is quite numerous, I became a member of society after graduating from high school just last month.
I work as an illustrator.

As my first work, I was made to draw an illustration of Twitter's Yamada Yōko for the "York International Center for International Education". NT: York is written as Yōko, it's a pun.


Picture (file related) shows Yōko-chan asking herself:
>If I spoke other languages, I wonder if the way I see the world would change too.

The subject is also something I thought about.
If possible, I'd like you to watch more of Yōko.
https://twitter.com/yoko_ymd LINK IS DEAD

If there's people with thoughts about studying abroad, or personal experience, please attach the hashtag #yamada yōko to your tweets, since I'd like to draw them. Not sure of this part, 私が絵にして行きたいと思います is literally "I drawing doing want to go think" [Or, SVO order, "I think drawing doing want to go"], and it's the first time I see something like that. If there's anyone with better experience who can make something with more sense, I'm all open to suggestions.

From now on, I'm planning on drawing illustrations for sites and pamphlets.
From now on I'd also want you to root for me.

Important Notice. (49th entry)
02 September 2014

One year and two months have passed since I've continued to draw Menhera Shoujo.
Compared to the time I started, I'm happy that a lot of people has been able to see my illustrations.
At the same time, I observe how negative opinions do increase too, so I got worried if it would be good to continue drawing these kind of illustrations.

But still, since I received a lot of messages through LINE; because there were lots of people who enjoyed my drawings, I continued to draw until today.

For the people who liked to see my illustrations until today, I have a notice.
The other day I called a person from a publisher company, and turns out a tankōbon will be published on november.

From now on I'd be happy if you could see more of my illustrations.

Humans are sometimes largely dominated by emotions. (50th entry)

Entering by one's will to an area where the government issued an evacuation order, getting kidnapped, bothering Japan, and being killed as a result. You might die if you go. Going to someplace like that, such an act cannot be called anything but being suicidal.

And after that there were people saying things like "Because it's imprudent, it'd be better if you stopped publishing stuff like this" and "What's a human life for you?". But you know, after that I published "death by being run over", and receiving the same responses must funny*. Almost every day, people die in accidents, you know.

I'm deeply drawn in by this, wondering what's going to happen next. I have been having back problems that effect my ability to do any kind of art for a month and it keeps getting worse. I'm working on getting it treated and diagnosed but it takes time.

I wonder if she will recover fully, and if it will give me hope that I will. I'm glad she continued to draw. Even up to where you have currently translated it still seems difficult to draw for her, but she still does it. I hope I can do the same thing.

I may skip some of those and jump directly into the next diary-like entry, if there's still any (I hope).

I drew Mori Minami, The Girl who loves cars
01 July 2015

She's the third character I'm made to create in my work.
It may be said "Oh, so it looks like you made a new character", but if I don't work I can't live, so please forgive me.

This character's father is a automobile mechanic, has an interest in cars, and drives a beetle.
For those taking their license, or those who want to hear important notices regarding cars; if possible, I'd be happy if you followed the account:

Regarding the afterword of my book, what I really wanted to say.
16 July 2015

There's something that, although I wanted to write it, I didn't.

=
Inside this work, "Doing a self-harm act", "looking for a paceful way of dying", etc. [TN: they're illustrations] normally carry a negative notation. But, in my case, I don't think of them as unconditionally bad. Doing things like self-harm, wanting to know a paceful way of dying, help me calm my emotions down. Supposing there was a kid in the neighbourhood who did self-harm, please, don't stop them for naught. For that kid, it may be a needed deed in order to live. I think it goes without saying but neither things like self-harm nor suicide are postive.
==

In the actual book, the past paragraph's got the word "self-mutilation" eliminated. But this is what I wanted to say. (The people at the publisher company told me not to write it).

I'd certainly be happy if you got an edition in your hands.
You can buy it through Amazon.

Latelly I've been playing games quite a bit
14 December 2015

Lately, I played a lot of "Dragon's Dogma Online".
Because there's so little people to play together with, it's a bit lonely.
If there's people who'd want to give it a try, let's play together please.
My character's name is "Azami Momose".

I also made a clan nammed "Dorothy's (DRs)".
I'm recruiting members to play with.

Those who want to come, or those who have an interest in the clan, contact me through my real account.

Things I can do
29 January 2016

I usually draw MHShoujo, but lately I've been thinking that there's nothing else I can do for the sake of the people who always look at my drawings.

This post is gonna get a bit tough.

I write things on twitter, but my recent illustrations were influenced with the SNS "Sakura Circle" for high school students. The circle is a simple place for communication between students and it has a place for consultation on topic such as bullying and others, but I thought it'd be good if it also had a place to ease mental anguish too. Although I'm powerless, I try giving some advice.

Particularly, in cases regarding bullying. it has a mechanism to report anonymously too.

It'd be pretentious of me to try addressing the problem of bullying, but I think it'd be good if in the world even a little bit of the existing bullying disappeared. There's people who say things like "They're bullied for a reason". But, for example, even if there was a reason, it doesn't justify bullying. No matter what's the reason, it's as unforgivable as murdering someone.

Of course, just with this system the bullying problem won't be solved, but talking about your problems is a good start line, or at least that's what I believe.

For those who can sympathize with this, please I ask of you to spread the word. Thank you very much.

Don't worry, I'm a moonwiz loser with not much things to do in my life and there's still the ask to translate (99 questions). I will skip the unneeded stuff this time though. That's because a lot of people wrote her asking for advice, so I'll just concentrate what she tells about herself. I may also translate her illustrations if there's still any on her twitter and when I feel like moonfucking some more.

Well in this case you should consider working with other losers translating stuff for a living, because i've tried but failed to be a loser like you.

I actually thought of this before, I should check how to handle bitgoy.

>because i've tried but failed to be a loser like you.

My case is pretty ironical, when I was a kid I wanted to be a complete loser, now I am just a social loser. I wish I could be a full time loser but money is needed in this life so I have a part-time job and I'm studying engineering to develop robo qts.

>There's a limit to humility, you know, you've done something worth of compliment but then you call yourself a loser afterwards, So please don't do that.

Self-mocking is one of my only ways to have fun lately. I'm quite content with my lifestyle but I do admit I'm a loser. At least I have lolis and a waifu there to be with me. Shit could be worse.

I mock myself a lot too but too much humility is a bad thing in our society, unfortunately. Saying you're good to yourself doesn't hurt in a while, because you know it's true, give yourself a chance.

It says something like "There are non-friend acquaintances, (It's a) proud reminiscing talk, but I wonder if they will talk".

Aside from that, sakura taisen and college are eating my time too.

Also I made a few questions in /a/'s DJP to have some better quality in the hardest ones, so in retrospective it's not so bad that they were deleted, since I'm improving them. They'll probably be posted tomorrow.
Have this webm for now.

Okay, I think it's time for me to make an explanatory post and sort stuff out.

First of all, after considering the total number of illustrations I have to translate (and I haven't checked if there are new ones, in which case they'll probably be in the next post), I decided to change the method of uploading images. There are currently 513 pictures on my folder; that means that even if I could upload up to 10 images each time, they'd amount to a dump conformed by about 52 posts. And I don't think filling the front page with several empty posts is a good idea either.
So, long story short, I decided to upload them as albums in a third party site, currently being imgur the best choice (although I'm completely open to change it for something less filled with fucking memes).
Also, I wondered if I should translate her older illustrations first and then move to the newer ones or if I should do it backwards. In the end I decided to translate from newer to older, like you would see them on twitter, because that's how I saved them. So yeah, First 50 are here http://imgur.com/a/tMmG9

Also, after reading a bit more I understood what did she try to say here in the last pic >>14347
The context is that, when someone dies, even those who did not know the dead well (or at all) talk wonders as if they were truly sad of their depart and how good was that person. In other words, full, blatant hypocrisy. What she's wondering about those "non-friend acquaintances" is if those faggots will talk about her and share "proudly" their memories while lamenting, even when none has ever lent her a hand or could even be called her "friend".

I couldn't manage to understand exactly what she's trying to say in the first one. The cleanest thing I could come to was
>Now, for the people who understand what's to not love oneself, it isn't painful enough to continue loving. Even if I know one can't go back to the past, it's not possible anyhow.

However, if I follow the grammatical rules of japanese, it should be something like
>Now, it isn't painful enough to continue loving the people who understand what's to not love oneself.

But that doesn't make much sense for me when you consider the second part of the illustration…
Honestly, it's the first time I've been so puzzled trying to understand something, and my translation sounds like shit. I can already hear the "You can't learn japanese" jokes.

I'm not confident on my translation in the first file.
「他人に言われ」… I don't know what's going on with the noun + に + passive renyoukei thing; I've seen many times but I never found any explanation on any site ever. I should ask on /a/ one of these days.
Either way, the objective of the action "言われ" (Passive stem of "To say") here is "他人" (Others, other people). But… passive means that it's an action not performed by anybody… and the other alternative is being polite, but, then why it's used here?
It doesn't seem to fit in any of the examples I've seen with に + passive verbs for polite speech.

Something is telling me that in this case, 他人 isn't the objective but the origin, however since I can't find anything to back up this I played it safe.
So, yeah…

Yes, As I translate the images I put them on separate folders (50 images each). My first translations are pretty wonky though, since I was practicing japanese to english translation and I wanted them to be as close as possible to the original (In case someone else wanted to learn jap through them or something), but somewhere midway I realized it sounded pretty unnatural, so I decided to be more laid back regarding writing the literal meaning instead of something coherent. I kind of feel like translating them again but I know very well how pointless that'd be at this point.
I will upload the folders later.

As for the diary entries, well, no, this thread is the only archive. I have some things on .txt files but they're not complete.

A few quick notes:
Many illustrations included twitter users. I believe those aren't her experiences, but from those listed on each post.

First file: I really can't translate it as anything else. "nothing but -> important people -> don't call friends". I'm suspecting it's actually something else along the lines of "I believe the label 'friend' is absolute stupid", but I can't really tell for sure.

Damn, absolutely*
A terrible headache + being without sleep is really killing my ability to write coherent sentences. If anybody notices typos or weird phrases just tell me, I will suffer with that tomorrow when I come again.

Also, first file again: I used "that person" as a generic noun here, but the original says 子 (child). The thing is, sometimes 子 is used to refer to young people, and not just children, hence my choice. I also had a hard time dealing with 空気を吸わないで. 空気 essencially means "air" or "atmosphere", 吸す is "to breath in" (ないで = indirect prohibition/soft negated imperative, thus "Don't breath [the same air]"). I really don't find any sense to the last sentence, so I'm sure my translation is wrong somwhere, but I can't currently see what's the real implication here.

So, this is where we part… farewell, my friend. Indeed, things were fun.
I've really got no appropriate words to say, but I shall wish you for the best in your deeds. Although your posts will be really missed, sometimes, that which we don't we wish for is actually for the best.
If, by any chance, in the future you're still in the path of life, and you don't know where to head your feet to, the doors of this place will always be open. I vowed never to go from here, so if death doesn't claim my name before I planned it, you will probably find me here again.

It was just a short period of time, yet it seemed so long.
Hear these empty words of mine, and drag them along.
Today we say goodbye, each facing opposite directions.
Please don't be shy, we're friends with shared affections.

Do not look back; hold your forehead high.
In those moments when you're taken aback, close your eyes and don't cry.
For I shall be there like a light, unbound by the distance,
Holding your shoulders tight.

Life has already been written. We're just playing a script.
But at the end of the play, all the characters come together again,
Behind the curtain, or under the stage.

We shall meet again.

さらばだ。

I'll hold all these words close to my heart…


After 4 years away from imageboards i returned last year to some boards and now i'm vanishing again, much like last time.
Not sure how should i feel… you see, imageboards are like a drug. We take our medication and get cured, then we take more and more… we overdose. This isn't good for people like me.

Like last time, i'll spend my days alone in my room, taking care of my mother and playing games and eroges. I want time to do it's thing and if something else comes up, i'll manage until suicide. I want it to be quick, there are some subways here nearby, haven't decided yet… better not think too much until the time comes.
I want distance from imageboards, all of them, if i get the urge to talk with somebody again, i'll just force myself to play a game a bit longer… and longer. Maybe call Mai to comfort me again… i don't know.
Don't get me wrong, i'd be glad to make a thread a couple years from now on and perhaps, having you replying to it or having you as friend.
But… i really don't want to travel this road anymore, people like you fill others with hope. I don't want hope, no longer. I wonder where things fell apart in my life, i used to be a good guy, popular with the girls even, average-looking, fit, glasses and all. Probably it would take a well-paying job to get my shit together. But i don't want any of this anymore, it's all so futile for me now… i want to vanish in insanity and end it all.

Maybe it happened just like that for some of you too. First we fall, then the chain of bad events begin and the more we try to free ourselves, the more we get stuck and powerless to escape. Like getting into a giant spider's web, yes, that's life. Or maybe destiny? Fate? Nah.

Coming to think of it, these last days i've finished Hotline Miami 2 and Monobeno, goes to show a bit of my personality, i guess. Violent and tender?
Anyway, i undertand you like Sakura Taisen and i know these series are very popular in Japan, but reasonably unknown here in the west. You've inspired me to play my backlog, i'm going to devour my eroges here. Monobeno was great by the way.
Still need to play Monobeno -happy end- and the Append disks, i'll be doing this as soon as i finish posting this.

I'm still praying for you guys, anonymous posters. Ever will.
The Internet is becoming like real-life isn't it, when we take out the spamming bots, very few people remain. Something to think about.
Hopefully we'll all meet again, far away.
We cannot predict life, maybe someday life changes colors for every one of us.
Thank you for my stay.

OP abandoned the internet. He was a cool guy.

Translations are going to be sightly delayed this time (again). I'm studying for a test next thursday. It's not really a hard one so I think I will have them ready this monday/tuesday, if not before.

Take your time, and I hope everything goes well with your test.

And so, all her images were finally translated.
So, after a quick counting, I've ravaged about ~610 images. A quite interesting experience, I must say. Translating means to understand something in one language and then take the same meaning to another one. For this purpose, you need not only to know the original language well enough, but also to be capable of weaving the words on your target language in such a way that it is flexible enough to be understandable but also so it to keeps the original ideas on it.
This made me realize how little I know about english, even though I've been using it for many, many years.
I wonder if I shouldn't first try to improve my vocabulary, grammar… maybe poetry could help. But I've been using this set of words for so long I doubt it will be able to make any real change. I'm not really good when I have to write. I'm too sloppy, and I barely read what I write, so I usually post lots of errors here and there. Partially because I'm lazy, but it's also because I spend a lot of time thinking what I want to write, how should I phrase it… by the time I push the post button, I've already forgotten I needed to proofread.
At the very least, I am content with how my ability to understand japanese has improved since I started this (and how my skills as a translator improved too They have, right?). I certainly know now why translators sometimes have to twist something so much when they translate. Literal meanings are just… too unnatural.
I still have a lot of things to improve, of course. But at least I now understand what makes a translation good or… the terrible stuff I did 3 months ago.

I've been also pondering whether I should keep posting her newer images here or not. My original goal was to simply translate her old works, and she posts about one or two images every 2 days. I wouldn't mind to keep translating her things if anyone is interested, but activity would certainly slow down a lot.
In the meantime, I will be busy playing lol's new games and (if time allows it) translating them. Which reminds me, I've yet to touch them. I've also have other plans for translations I know you guys will be interested in, but those will have to wait.

So… yeah. That's it. I suppose an ending song would be appropriate. I've had this one in my head for many days already, so I suppose it's natural this japanese adaptation of Tchaikovsky's Waltz of the Flowers may be appropriate - Ah, if only the video wasn't made by a 12 years old.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add: She made some illustrations with quotes from many people. With some, I was able to track the original (or translated) english phrase. With others, I didn't have much luck, so I practically translated them raw from japanese (With all the implications doing a two-way translation carries). They may be different, or even completely wrong. If somebody notices any error, please feel free to tell me right away.

If it is okay with you, I still would like to see translations for her newest works.
In any case, thank you for everything you have done so far.

I'm not dead yet… I think. I hope somebody still monitors this thread.
Sorry for the waiting.
Lately I've been wondering about a lot of things, and pondering about my life. I've been feeling less motivated. More passive. I've been slow.
Sorry.

I really hope you choose to keep translating stuff whenever you're up for it. You're doing a great thing, anon.

Thanks. Yeah, I will keep going, it's just that I'm waiting for her to post around ~20 drawings instead of bumping this thread everyday for each drawing, so things are going to progress slowly, but I will keep it up.

On the brighter side, I finalized all my tests from the first year's period, so I can go back to spend my time freely inside my house and translate other things I have delayed. I halted lol's games for a while, one was somewhere around %50 complete, the other had all the text drained. Hopefully I can finally speed that up.
And after that… who knows. Symphonic Rain has been on my list for a while, maybe it's about time I try it. Okazaki-san's voice was always so calming, and her lyrics are so simple yet deep. Sometimes I wake up and realize I'm still on my computer as the playlist rolls her songs. Sometimes I wish she was still alive. But something tells me that then I wouldn't like her stuff that much for the same reason.
不思議な感情だなぁ、懐かしさと言うの気持ちだ。

After all these years, I've improved my japanese to the point that I managed to translate a few games and nowadays I actively help with the translation of manga. This thread gives me very mixed feelings. One one hand, these old translations are very embarrassing due to the massive amounts of errors, but one the other, it's really warming to see how far I've come after all these years. Although I wished to continue with these translations back then, I was going through so much in life that I could hardly find any motivation, and eventually I forgot all about it.

Until now. For some reason, I stumbled upon this thread again.

Lelouch, I don't know where you are. I don't even know if you're still alive, after all these years. I don't even know if you will ever read this words, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart for these memories. I will cherish them for as long as I can. You said that you were tired of hope. Back then, I was puzzled about what you meant. But I think I understand now. I knew that we would never met again, but I also hoped, very deep inside, that I was wrong. Which is why, even though futile, I will finally scatter these petals in the wind. Let them raise high in the wind. Let the dusk change their shades. Only then the rose will bloom again, as they disappear in the horizon. Life is but the sweetest vinegar. It's not until you accept it as it is that you can savor its taste and enjoy it.


幸想い
風に散らさず
忘れても
土にある種
いずれ咲くかな

Even if I forget these happy memories
Without being able to scatter them in the wind
I wonder if the seeds buried in the ground
Will ever bloom?


Until the day we meet again, good friend.

I remember you.
How nice to see you again.
Are you doing well?
Anyway thank you for the translations.
I am not the one you search though, just saying.
