First a bit of business: We need an advanced-level Japanese-to-English translator to QC translations. We have a backlog of scripts that need checking, including “Bread & Butter” chapter 5. We need a translator who’s comfortable with no furigana. The commitment is up to two scripts a week. There are no expectations for the volunteer to translate unless they want to. If you are interested, please send me some email using the link at the top right corner of this blog.
Here’s chapter 8 of “Sabaku no Harem”. I have lots of thoughts about this chapter which I will ramble about on Lovely Manga this weekend. Sufficed to say I like what’s going on here. I don’t need my stories of women to be feminist victories. There’s also beauty in watching a person break another person. I love examining the manipulation and watching the power balance in relationships. Mishe and Kallum are an interesting pair.
Next up will be a long anticipated oneshot called “One-Day Idols”. After that, I don’t know. We’re all caught up on our priority series, so there’s a 2-week break with no new chapters to work on. I think I’ll try to release some oneshots that were translated a while ago.
