and here's volume 1

2

In One Piece party there are two omakes in the backs of the volumes with Kid and Killer. I wish there was more xD But they’re great. The portrayal of their characters is a little interesting, though.

In the first one:
Killer: *slurp slurp slurp slurp*
Kid: “STOP IT!!!”

And the second:
Killer: “Water seven” *pyuuuuu…….* “And then… ‘KNOCK UP STREAM’”
Kid: “STOP IT!!”

Mob Psycho 100 volumes 1-4 author note translations (Thanks @5miths for letting me use the cover scans here!)

Volume 1
“Because of the support from the readers, this became a manga volume. Thank you!
Espers probably have adolescent problems too, so the stress builds up, and that was the birth of this manga.
From here on, what kind of person will Mob start to become…? I would be happy if you watch!!”

Volume 2
“Thank you for purchasing this volume.
So that means, as the words in this comment are reaching you, volume two will have been safely released, right?
I want that future to come quickly. Afterwards, I will brace myself again.”

Volume 3
“Even though I usually don’t meet people, because of the readers impressions, I’ll remember this conversation-like feeling. (?)
Thanks to your support I was able to easily finish volume 3. I appreciate it!”

Volume 4
“The nickname “Mob” means background character*
I chose it because it gave an impression of a minor role.
Even though he’s the main character, he’s Mob.
Despite being Mob, he’s the main character.
Life would probably be the same for both.” (?)

(I’ll do volumes 5-8 next. Translation notes for the parts I wasn’t sure about under the read more.)

Crusher Analyses Sonic Lyrics Volume 1: Unknown From M.E.

Here I come, rougher than the rest of them,
The best of them, tougher than leather.

But fur is softer than leather.

You can call me Knuckles, unlike Sonic I don’t chuckle,

You’ve lost my trust.

I’d rather flex my muscles.

Your muscles aren’t any more pronounced than Cream’s.

I’m hard as nails, it ain’t hard to tell,
I break'em down whether they’re solid or frail.

How come you can’t dig through metal in Adventure 2 then?

Unlike the rest I’m independent since my first breath,

First test, feel the right, then the worst’s left.

He’s not good at planning out interior designs.

Born on an island in the heavens,
The blood of my ancestors flows inside me.

That’s horrifying.

My duty is to save the flower,
From evil deterioration.

Water it then, geez.

I will be the one to set your heart free, true,

Sorry man, I’m already taken.

Cleanse yourself of them evil spirits that’s in you.

It’s already too late for him. :’(

Streaking lights, loud sounds, and instinct,
Are the elements that keep me going.

Translation: “Carnival Night exists because of my desire to escape my miserable existence guarding a radioactive Sherbet Lemon.”

I am fighting my own mission,
Nothing’s gonna stand in my way.

Won’t be frightened, I’ll stand up to all the pain and turmoil,
Just believe in myself, won’t rely on others.

Get this power to wipe out the havoc and anarchy,
This is my planet, gonna fight for my destiny.

I have no such things as weak spots,

Don’t approve of him, but gotta trust him.

This is the sort of mindset that leads you into working for aliens who sound as though they smoke ten packs a day.

Not that anyone in the Sonic universe would be experienced with that sort of thing.

This alliance has a purpose,

This partnership is only temporary.

“It’s not like I like you or anything, Sonic-baka!”

Freedom will be waiting when serenity is restored,
This is my planet, I shall not surrender.

Hope you stuck to your promise by the time of Sonic Forces.

The new porcupine on the block with the buff chest,

You’ve already existed for over four years prior to this game.

In the wilderness with the ruggedness.

If you’re supposed to be rugged, Tails is basically chiseled.

Knock knock, it’s Knuckles, the bloat thrower,

How do you know my address?

Also, what in the name of fuck is a bloat thrower?

Independent flower, Magical Emerald holder,

Knuckles confirmed for flower otherkin. (Otherknuckles?)

I’ll give you the coldest shoulder.

Said the writers of Sonic X.

My spikes go through boulders, that’s why I stay a loner.

“I killed that boulder, Sonic… I slaughtered that boulder… I could not bear to go outside ever again, I was so ashamed…”

I was born by myself, I don’t need a posse,

Yeah, Ken.

I get it on by myself, adversaries get shelved.

Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card Arc Chapter 11 Translation

I went to the bookstore at lunch today and was happy to find that Nakayoshi is out a day early. Here is the full version of the chapter 11 translation.  Going through it a second/third time, I noticed some errors I made in the preview versions and have corrected them (just nuances and typos; nothing plot significant). Sorry about the changes!

Also, I bought some extra goods yesterday at Sakura Fest and will be updating my CCS goods sale post soon.  If you’re interested in an item, please PM me. Right now things are quite busy for me at work, but I will try to respond as quickly as I can. :)

anonymous asked:

Why do you think they decided to introduce souske and then relate him to rin with such a strong bound? I mean before everyone was"mmmm makoharu or rinharu?" But now the couples are formed...I mean it's pretty clear that if they will go with some gay stuff people will know who is going with who lol

Hi! Sousuke isn’t a new character, he’s been introduced since the High Speed! novels that are basis to the tv series. Since then he’s established and known to be Rin’s best friend. If you want to learn more about Sousuke I’d suggest to watch Free! Starting Days the movie and read the High Speed! light novels. I linked both volumes here and they’re translated to English: 

High Speed! 1- https://sunnyskies.dreamwidth.org/960.html

High Speed! 2 - https://nanowave.wordpress.com/2014/12/26/high-speed-2-chapter-1-jump/

In terms of Sousuke being Rin’s best friend, well since High Speed! he went to the same elementary school with Rin and became friends with him because he also took swimming seriously and both were similar in personality and had a thing for competitions. Before, Rin, Sousuke, and Kisumi were in a team called Sano and well through swimming they formed a close friendship. In middle school when Rin left Sano and swam with Iwatobi in elementary, Rin had compared himself with Haru. After the elementary medley relay with Iwatobi, Haru hurt Rin trough a match they raced. Since this losing match, Rin was hurt because he had always had the dream since he was little to become an Olympic swimmer because of his father who passed away, who had that dream. Haru didn’t take swimming seriously since then, he only knew he loved the water and swimming. It hurt Rin because Haru didn’t care to win, but won, and Rin cared to win, he lost, but thought that he couldn’t reach his dream because of people like Haru who don’t care to use talent to become the best and that was what Rin wanted to have to reach his dream. Since then he’s always wanted to swim faster than Haru. 

In a way Sousuke was always there to motivate Rin and simply be his friend. Not to mention both made a promise to see each other in the Olympics. Turns out Rin leaves to Australia where he spends his middle school years, but still writes letters to Sousuke. Meanwhile Sousuke holds a grudge against Haru after making Rin cry and is like a rival to Haru during High Speed! 2. Now; going into the tv series, Rin is back to Japan for high school. Sousuke makes a come back in Free! Eternal Summer and joins Samezuka, Rin’s team in high school. I think it makes sense for both to meet and revisit their friendship, as well as drive Rin to new members/team and leave his past conflict with Iwatobi (in middle school) to move forward. 

I think Sousuke is more of a support for Rin, but also share a childhood friendship which makes there relationship pretty stable. Don’t forget Sousuke and Rin’s scene where Rin cries. I think this states about Sousuke’s care for Rin and Rin appreciation and well since Sousuke hurt his shoulder and can’t reach that dream with Rin. Rin still waits for him to stand by his side. Saying he wants to keep seeing Sousuke and keep supporting each other. With this I can say that Sourin has a strong base and prospect in the future as to why KyoAni includes him as Rin’s other half. All of this i’m pulling from High Speed! and the tv series. 

I hope this gave the Makoharu vs Rinharu discourse from season 1 the perspective of Sourin that had to be shared, before bringing back Sousuke to the tv series. Rin and Sousuke have a strong childhood base just like Haru and Makoto. I would strongly recommend reading the High Speed! novels to have a better grasp at understanding characters/ relationships, story, and clear the discourse of Makoharu vs Rinharu and shed light to Sourin (which is pretty consistent just like Makoharu has been throughout the story). I can go on to talk about Makoharu and Rinharu, explain both sides, and clear up with the facts using the sources, but I won’t get into that unless someone wants to hear my thoughts. I’ll only say that Makoharu stands to be true and equipped with a lot of sources to support it and the character’s feelings towards each other. 

Thank you for your question! ^^ I loved writing about it! Please don’t hesitate to share your opinion. Who’s ready for the new Free! Timeless Medley this year?!

  • Ren in Volumes 1 - 3: Yeah hi, just over here in the background, doing my thing, looking fabulous and sometimes being a dork no biggie, hey have you seen my childhood friend NORA who's way more expressive than I am?
  • Ren in Volume 4: I HAVE A COOL NEW OUTFIT AND SUDDENLY A BACKSTORY AND MORE PERSONALITY THAN EVER ALSO SUBTEXT WITH JAUNE WHERE DID THAT COME FROM ALSO NORA DOESN'T STEAL MY WIND ANYMORE WHATS GOOD PEOPLE GET READY FOR SOME REN ACTION

I’m re-reading the Bleach Digital official colour Manga volumes I have and as I got into chapter 4, I remembered what a Japanese blogger wrote in their 686 review about Chad’s Boxing career being foreshadowed. And since, you know, Chad is now ~ahem~ “out of character”, “Money hungry” and “selfish/ fame obsessed”, what a good time to talk about Chad right?!

So anyway this what the reviewer wrote and I’ll translate:
