This marks the end of Volume 3 of Akashic Records and the first half of this arc.
Due to the long time between releases, I’m concerned that people might forget the developments that occurred in the previous release. Thus, starting with volume 4, I’ll be holding off on releasing as soon as possible and instead wait till I’m close enough to the end to release in a semi-regular fashion.
For those who are downloading the illustrations from the site for PDFs and other purposes, I recommend going directly to the address of the image and removing the width parameter (?w=1530) that is used to scale the resolution of the image to the size of the page as to not use more data then necessary. This will allow you to get a full size image.
As always, thanks for reading!
Last chapter is editing and the interlude isn’t too long, hopefully the volume will be finished sometime during June.
Due to ‘popular’ demand, I hereby present the manga adaptation of Akatsuki Natsume’s latest novel, Combatants will be Dispatched!
I’ve gotten a few questions as to why I’ve picked up this series even though someone at BeastLair’s forums has picked this up a while back.
Firstly, the mistakes on their translations aside, the translator there did state their own inexperience and welcomed others to pick it up, and secondly, this series is incredibly hard to translate compared to any other series I’ve read, which serves to help me learn a bit better.
Personally, translating this is quite a struggle overall. The language is a little… archaic? Well, ‘oddly phrased’ overall. I really do enjoy the challenge but time per word is about 3 times slower than Akashic and possibly around 10 times slower compared to Konosuba.
That’s enough ranting anyway. Enjoy the chapter.
P.S. I’ve noted this several times, but that I translate Fate/Prototype whenever I’m a chapter ahead of Akashic Records’ editing. So releases are going pretty pretty slow, generally speaking.
