K, I got a little more done today. I did p168-171. That covers Chapter 2-7 and the first page of 2-8, which is the last subchapter of chapter 2. Some interesting and plot-major stuff going on in these few pages.

There's 6 pages left in chapter 2-8. I'll hopefully be able to finish that soon and we can at long last move on to chapter 3. For the record, I finished chapter 1 in November of 2012. So... I've been on chapter 2 for quite a while now. The whole book has 209 pages left.

Ok, so yesterday I did some and today I did some, so there we are done with Chapter 2. I made it into a nice .PDF with all the illustrations laid inline.
http://kappashiro.com/hiwamatanoboru/Th ... er%202.pdf

Chapter 2 was 86 pages long and it took a 4 years, but I didn't actually work on it for most of that.

At some point I'll probably go back and edit it a bit. We have a couple people who've volunteered to help edit as well.

Here;s chapter 1 again if you're looking for it. It has everything from the beginning even though technically there's also a prologue.
http://kappashiro.com/hiwamatanoboru/Th ... er%201.pdf

I'm on page 180 now. Chapter 3 subchapter 1. The book is 380 pages, so there's 200 pages left in The Book. 10 more and I'll be at the half way point.

I did a little of this yesterday afternoon, but I finished chapter 3-2 today. So now I've translated up to page 200, which is a nice milestone, too. I've got 180 pages to go.

Ok, got a bunch more done. Some of this was 2 days ago and yesterday. This part I just did has this very... odd section in it.

I finished chapter 3-3. Now I'm on the beginning of page 213. There's 168 pages left in ZA BUKKU.

Wow, I was thinking of editing out that section because I thought it was added by you! The author just went and added some personal narration in there? Weird..

I haven't been actually posting in the thread every time because it seems kinda pointless unless there's anything specific to say. I've been able to keep up translating pretty regularly, almost every day, for a while. So it's definitely going well. It's still frustrating thinking about just how much is left and how long that's gonna take, though.

Anyhow, I finished chapter 3-5. Which was one of the longer ones and had some big revelations in it. I'm on page 228 now. 256 is the last page of chapter 3, so I'm getting close to that mark.

Chapter 3's a bit shorter than the others.
Ch 1 is 91 pages (Though that includes the opening color pages and table of contents and stuff),
Chapter 2 is around 84,
chapter 3 is 78,
chapter 4 is 103,
and chapter 5 is just 15.
Then the postscript is I think 3.

So anyhow, I'm getting there. 152 pages left.

Ok, so I got some more done and finished chapter 3-6. That section took a while, it's filled with descriptions and it's fairly slow moving until the end.

The next subchapter, 3-7 is another really long one at 18 pages long. Followed by a super-short subchapter at a 1.5 pages long, and that finishes out chapter 3.

Then after that we got chapter 4 with 2 reaaaallllly long fights. Which goes all the way to page 347. Then after that is sort of the falling action as it heads to the resolutions.

I haven't had much time to work on this over the past 2 weeks because of obligations all weekend both weekends and other work during the week to just do like a page or two of this at a time.

I've got 143 pages left.

Thanks so much for this and I admire you sticking through with this. Is this the longest piece of work that you've translated?

I translated all of Toriko which was 8 and a half years going every single week. So that's longer I guess. But what you define as one "unit". A book or a series or anime or manga are kinda different. I've only done the two novels.

Ok, finally made it to the next milestone. I finished all of chapter 3. I'll go make a PDF tomorrow I guess if I have time. All of these PDFs are gonna be edited before releasing one long one of the whole thing anyhow, but I might as well make one because I made one for the other chapters.

Image

For the record, chapter 3 took from 12/30/16 to a little after midnight on the early morning of 2/14/17.
Compare that to chapter 2 which took from 11/22/12 to 12/29/16. 4 years VS 2.5 months. Pretty big difference there (Not that I was actually working on it all those 4 years).

I'm on page 258 now. Just 122 pages left in The Book.

Glad to see you've found more time to work on this. Guess you're officially on the last third.

Got around to read the first chapter.

Well I am a French snob who'd read Proust, although I have yet to read that one.
"A la recherche du temps perdu" is a novel in several tomes and memory is indeed one of its theme. A memetic scene had the narrator smell a madeleine (local sponge cake) and basically remember a long forgotten memory of his childhood.

I still haven't read any of In Search of Lost Time. That's one I keep meaning to get around to. I have Swan's Way but haven't read it.

Anyhow, I just got up to chapter 4 scene 3. Which is one of the longest scenes in the book. It's one long fight in its entirety. It goes from page 267 to page 304.

Then there's another short chapter, followed by the OTHER super-long chapter,
Chapter 4 [5] (p309-p347)
which is another long fight. But after that, we're basically done, with just 33 pages left. So this part's gonna take a while, but we're in the home stretch. Wish me luck.

Interesting that a one fight spans that long. Best of luck.

I took somewhat of a break to play Breath of the Wild along with getting some other stuff done. I'll have Innocent Rouge V5 to scan and translate soon now as well as soon as I can buy it.
But now I'm on page 283. I'm about 3/4ths of the way through the book now. 285 would be the 3/4th mark, so I should get there next session.
I've got 98 pages left in the book.

I made it to page 300!

I had to take a break for a while to work on the new volume of Innocent Rouge. Though that's done except for final checking at the end which I'll do once it's fully typeset sometime this week or next. And that takes like an hour or two.

I'm finally done with the Okuyasu fight, which took me like... I dunno looks like about 2 months. I've still gotta finish the post-battle last 4 pages of chapter 4-3 though.
I'm getting there. I'm gonna try to focus on this in the coming few weeks and get the rest done fairly quickly if I can. Then I'll go back and edit the whole thing which'll probably take another two weeks or so, but then it'll finally be done and I can move on to something else and you can all read The Book.

There are 80 pages left to translate.

You've done good getting this far, Kewl. Seems 2017 will be the year of finished translation projects.

Ok. I've been hard at work on this. Haven't posted anything, just updating the first post. I finished chapter 4-5. So I'm on page 348 now. There's just 33 pages left. I'm getting there. 4-6 is basically just one page long so I should be able to finish that tomorrow if all goes well.

Then 4-7 is 11 pages, 5-1 is 4 pages, and 5-2 is 13 pages, and the post-script is 3 pages.
Also like 2 of those pages are blank. One's just the chapter 5 opening page with the Chrstian mass stuff on it.

Once I finish translating I'm gonna go back and edit it, hopefully some of the people that volunteered to help will come through. I can probably improve the beginning a bit and find little issues and typos or inconsistencies if I edit it so I wanna make sure to do that. Though I'm not gonna go crazy on it given how long it is, and I'd really like to be done with this soon so I can focus on some other long-term projects soon.

But I THINK I can get all that done in the month of June. Wish me luck.
