Before you ask, I was kind of bed-stricken since I got hit by a fever, cold, and other weird sicknesses consecutively in the past few weeks. Not even fully recovered yet, either.
That said, taking a break from LN translations after a whole year of working without stops can be a terrible drug. I was also working on another wordpress blog on a host outside of the land of freedom to move my junk, but I haven’t made much progress there.
I said I’d continue with the translations, but I don’t plan on releasing them as fast as I used to, sorry to say. I did see translations for chapter 8 and 9, and if that person ever wants to take over the blog, I’m more than happy to pass on the torch; I’ve gotten pretty lazy, to say the least. in the meantime, I’ll translate very, very slowly. I do have an editor now though, so woohoo!
I also had the goal of scanning and cleaning every colored illustration, but I’m probably done with that. I’ll just upload the digital RAWs from honto when I feel like it. A shame since I wasted quite a bit of money buying multiple copies to scan them all. Oh well.
Also, I don’t plan on answering any questions/discussing Oregairu with anyone anymore, I more or less effectively removed myself from the fanbase altogether, occasionally opening a thread for 10 seconds max before closing them just to check up on things. I don’t think I’ll be making a post for every update either, so you’re stuck with refreshing the page indefinitely. I find myself being more mentally liberated after having done this though, feels kinda bueno, man.
Anyway, that’s that. I’d also like to sell off my extra copies of Oregairu for the manga/light novel so I’ll make a post about that eventually.
I’ve entertained the idea of doing another light novel when this series ends. It’s, of course, going to be something not harem-related. But that’s in the future and I’ll take my time picking something.
