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.
Exams are over. yuNS’ holiday has begun, and so has Yunyun’s it seems.
Edit: Forgot illustration. Brain on holiday too.

Looking for someone with a Premier Fan Badge for AX2018 to help a friend secure a VIP ticket (with the 48 hours pre-purchase privilege) to the Anime Expo 2018 event “LOVELIVE! SUNSHINE!! Aqours World Love Live! in LA ~Beyond the Pacific”!
If you’re willing:
– I will reimburse the full price for the event ticket ($150) + shipping fees for any procedures
– I will also throw in a Konosuba artbook from the series’ artist Mishima Kurone as well as a few Japanese volumes of the Light Novel if you would like. All shipping will be paid for on my end.
Email me at re.yun.NS@gmail.com or leave a comment with contact details if you can help!
TL;DR: For Releases
– Konosuba has been sort-of dropped. I’ll translate the short stories eventually.
– Akashic will aim to release on a monthly cycle (the 1st of each month specifically).
– Fate/Prototype is being translated during Akashic editing cycles. Do not expect frequent releases.

You may or may not have heard of the Rance series, but it won’t be wrong to say that it is a cult classic in Japan. It celebrates its 10th and final entry today after a long 29 year history. While the series is something that won’t generally be discussed on the site, I figured that it would be reasonable to very briefly talk about it given its history with Konosuba and – loosely – Fate.

A while back, Akashic Records’ chapters were 2 chapters ahead of editing (now 0), and with Konosuba gone, I decided to start a new side project, Fate/Prototype: Fragments of Blue and Silver.
The chapters for this series are on the shorter side, but the language used and the translation complexity are much higher (in my opinion) compared to Konosuba and Akashic. As some of you might know, this entire site and my translation as a hobby is just a way for myself to improve my Japanese, so I believe this will serve as better practice for myself.
Note that this series may be confusing for those who are unfamiliar with the Fate Universe. I’ll try to add a FAQ for the series later when I have time.
Also note that this series will only be worked on when the translation of Akashic is ahead of editing, so don’t expect too many releases for this (lol).
Finally, special thanks to Frozen-senpai for helping with the cleanup of the cover!
