Re: The Book - JBA 4th Another Day Translation: Updated 12/2

Okay, yeah.
So like I said, scene 3 is short, so I did that all in one go. That's done. I finished 5.5 pages and I'm on scene 4 of chapter 2 which is page 125. (I update the first post with a list of when and how much I do every time, in case anyone's wondering. So you can see my approximate pace there at more of a glance.)

That scene corresponds to this video, for those keeping track:
http://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm17771645

There are only two more videos out and then I'll be ahead of them (Woo!). The person usually adds one every 2-3 months and they usually equate to one scene. I do enjoy watching these as I go along.

K uh... As for where we are in the grand scheme of things, I'm about a third of the way through The Book now. 125 x 3 = 375. And the book had 380 pages in it. Scene 4 of Chapter 2 has 18 pages in it, one of which has no text, just a picture of Okuyasu, so basically 17 pages. So THAT is something I can't do all at once unless I just go crazy and translate The Book all day. Which I might do, I dunno. I'm always teetering at the brink of insanity anyhow.

Here's a quick rundown of the rest of chapter 2. For the 0.0001 of you out there keeping track of this (So, just for my own reference, really).
Scene 4: p125-142 (18 Pages)
Scene 5: p143-149 (7 Pages)
Scene 6: p150-167 (18 Pages)
Scene 7: p168-170 (3 pages)
Scene 8: p171-177 (7 pages)
So 53 pages left in this chapter.

Then page 178 is blank and Chapter 3 starts on page 179.
Chapter 3 has 8 scenes and ends on page 256. So that's 179-256, 78 pages.
Chapter 4 has 7 scenes and goes from page 257 to 360, 104 pages.
Chapter 5 has 2 scenes and goes from page 361 to 376, 16 pages.
Then there's a 4 page post script by Otsuichi talking about how he came to write The Book. This is the part that mentions he threw out 2000 pages and whatnot.

There ya go. That's the scope we're dealing with here. Obviously, a lotta scenes have waaay different lengths than others. I think scene 5 of chapter 4 is 40 pages. Whereas Scene 6, following it, is just over 1 page. I like to keep track of these things as sort of checkpoints. Feels like I'm completing something, even though it's not really complete and nobody's really reading this except maybe at the ends of chapters or when I finish the whole thing. But I'm definitely getting somewhere. Just gotta keep going one page, one sentence at a time...

Thanks guys.
Yeah, I figure I can't garner enough attention to get people to read it as I go along. But ah well. I'll trudge forward.

I finished 3 pages today. I'm on page 128.

I think most people are paying attention to the project but waiting til some or all of it is finished, so we're all rooting for you Kewl!

Kewl, you are awesome. You saved us with faster chapters of Steel Ball Run, saved taking Jojolion when that scan who took it first dropped and after all, you put this effort in the book. Thanks! I'm glad that Jojo has a fan like you! :deigo

Re: The Book - JBA 4th Another Day Translation: Updated 1/28

Ah, it's nice to go back to doing this once in a while after a day of working through frustrating things with people who probably don't want to talk to me or care much at all about what I'm trying to do or how much work I put into things to get them done. I can just go work on something like this where I can do as much as I want without any obligation to get tons of it done or to do it quickly, and I don't have to worry about other people having to do jobs on it before it can get done within a specific time frame. And I don't have to feel frustration when those same people don't do their jobs, don't respond to my messages, or just outright lie, like they so often do, apologetically.

I did 3 pages. I'm at page 131. I've got 12 pages left in this scene. 47 pages left in this chapter.
I'll probably translate Over Heaven some day soon when I have time. It's really not hard at all compared to this, so I could knock it out in a session or two when I was free to work on it all day.

I have a few things I need to do first, then I'm gonna work more on this. I probably won't have time until the end of February or sometime in March.

I've had a lot going on in my life, so I'm not as far along in projects as I'd want to be. I won't be able to get back to this for some time. Maybe a month or two.

Yeah. Right now I'm translating Toriko, Gintama, 3-Gatsu no Lion, Ring, and 81diver. Once those are a little further along or I finish one of them I'll work on this more. I'll try to do it this year.
