I always thought he met Pucci before any part III events. So... Dio and Pucci became very best friends like that in less than 50 days?

Friendship isn't about whom you've known the longest. It's about who came and never left your side.

Kewl, I love you for having posted this perfect translation of that amazing book that is OVER HEAVEN! I've always wanted to know what was written in it, from his publishing date!!!
Thank you very much!!! It must be a long and difficult work...you are great to do it for us!!
But..one only thought...OVER HEAVEN has got 80 chapter or about, so...the end is really far, unfortunately...
DO YOU THINK YOU WILL TRANSLATE THE WHOLE BOOK??? (please say yes, I wanna know everything Dio has written in it, the little and useless (MUDAA!!!) things too). :dio

I know I'm a fool, but: I, Dio, wanna know!!!!!

Yeah, I'm gonna do the whole book. The thing is, right now in my life I'm pretty much constantly spending all my free time translating or working on some project every day. So I really rarely have time to work on this. So just occasionally when I get something done early and have a spare half hour or so, I'll do a chapter of this. I really can't make this a priority right now, because there's a lot of other stuff I want to do, and often require that it get done at a pretty fast rate. I'm trying really hard to finish some other projects, and once they're done I'll have more free time. Then I'll try to dedicate larger blocks of time to doing this. It takes me something like half an hour to do a chapter. Though a good bunch of these chapters are like, one page. So they're not all equal I'm like a third of the way through the book right now.

Anyhow, you reminded me about this, so I went and translated chapter 17. This one is about Dio reacting to Kakyouin being saved by Joutarou. Not all that much it's like a page and a half.

I did chapter 18. In this one Dio epically summarizes like one chapter of part 1. And not much else.

They're all at least a little fun to read. It's just hard to talk about it and make it sound exciting at all.

I translated chapters 19 and 20. Some interesting discussion in these ones.
At the end of chapter 20, Dio discusses one more friend of his.
A friend with a name that kinda sounds like something you'd name a dog.

It seems it is always holy women that interfere in my life.
Holy women hinder me.

The irony is because his counterpart in another universe is killed by a Holy Woman too.

I did chapter 21. In this chapter Dio starts talking about the Joestars in their journey a bit more. The story now kinda goes between talking about the events of Part 1 while discussing the events of Part 3. I mean it already did that a bit with Kakyouin but now it's more of like "The Joestars are coming for me" sort of a thing. It's neat, read it.

It's in the first post along with the page count ant all, but there are 81. I'm at about page 100 now, page 100 is in the next chapter. I think I said there are 308 pages, so I should be about a third of the way through with the next chapter.

Mostly I've just been going back to this when I'm bored and feel like doing something different. Because it only takes like 20 minutes to do a chapter. I could do the whole thing in not too long if I had the time to. But I don't right now and probably won't for a while. So I'm just gonna keep doing it like this. I want to finish this before trying to start any more of the books, though.

Whatever pace you can handle is fine! I'm just really grateful you're doing this :yeah I did want to wait til you had a significant part of the book done before starting, and I think it's reaching that point now.

Re: Over Heaven Translation: Updated 12/5/13 (Chapter 22)

Postby Kewl0210 » Thu Dec 05, 2013 12:43 am

Ok, I've finally got time to work on this again. I'd worked on it a bit a while ago buy chapter 22 was kinda long. I'm on page 101 now.
This chapter talks about Dio killing people and stuff.

I'm gonna try to actually do this at a decent pace and actually finish soon, if I can. It's a long book though and I've got tons of projects I work on, etc.

Re: Over Heaven Translation: Updated 12/13/13 (Chapter 23)

Postby Kewl0210 » Fri Dec 13, 2013 11:18 pm

I finished chapter 23. Chatpers 22 and 23 are basically one long "Dio's perspective of Part 1" story. Going from when he decided to poison George Joestar to when Jonathan discovered his plan. It kind of analyzes things from an objective view, I thought. Basically he says "If I had just done this, or this, or this, or this I probably would've succeeded." But he also says "But could you blame me for not doing that?" a lot of the time as well. So it's kind of interesting in that way. It's sort of half an admittance of error and half a retroactive justification. Though technically he sort of considers becoming a vampire to be a good thing, so maybe he's glad his plans to take over the Joestar fortune failed. He kind of talks about that a bit later on. A sort of "I won in the end, so the past failures didn't matter." mindset.

22 and 23 are I think the longest chapters so far, which is largely why it took so long to get them done. It's hard to motivate yourself to doing that much at once. And I like to only post when I'm at stopping points. Anyhow we're at uh... Page 107 now. I'm gonna try to get some more done.
