So, I’ll be going on a road trip in a couple of weeks, and I’ll be preoccupied for the better part of a month. Figured I should prioritize doing as much Ruin Explorers translation as possible. Right now I’m about halfway through 5.3, which I MIGHT be able to release just one week from now. 5.4 is short, and I might be able to get to 5.5, but I don’t see me accomplishing much more than that in the time I’m giving myself.
Anyway, I loved working on this chapter, but it had a lot of dialogue I wasn’t sure about. Strangely enough, working through 5.3 cleared up quite a bit regarding 5.2, and I even learned more about how the Japanese language works through all the research I had to do. So it’s been a great learning experience all around. 5.2 wouldn’t have been nearly as polished if I hadn’t gotten as far as I did on 5.3. I may have to go back and take a second look at my translations on earlier chapters once I finish all of Chapter 5.
So… yeah, this chapter sure took a long time. It was considerably more difficult to deal with than Chapter 3.
Oh god, this chapter… I knew it would take me two weeks. I didn’t think I would need a third.
I’m steadily getting better at this. Really happy to have this chapter out there.
