Nora Ch. 9

Nora Ch. 9 (Sulfur Current Part 2, Chapter 4)

That’s the end of the arc, but not the end of Nora scanlations.  I’ve still got a few chapters of Twinkle Nora and of course the Nora’s Ark two-parter to go.

Sorry for the long wait between releases, but this was more or less a learning experience for me.  I went through the entire scanlation process by myself: acquiring the product, debinding, scanning, cleaning, “translating,” and typesetting.  Really makes you appreciate just how much work goes into a quality scanlation, and my work isn’t even that good.  Anyway, as long as PSO2:NGS doesn’t get any meaningful updates anytime soon and I stay away from WvW in Guild Wars 2, I can make some progress.

FYI, last month marked the 40-year anniversary of the conclusion of the Sulfur Current arc’s publication.  Wish I could be just a bit more timely about it.

Me trying to actually get any work done on this project.

So… Been half a year, huh?  Amazing what HUNDREDS OF HOURS OF PSO2 will do to your productivity.

Nora Ch. 8 (Sulfur Current Part 2, Chapter 3)

This time around I’ve learned how to bring those file sizes down some.  I’ve also decided NOT to translate sound effects because that’s an art in and of itself and I didn’t want to bog myself down with the extra work.

There’s just one more chapter to go in this arc, then it’s the Nora’s Ark two-shot, then I guess the rest of Twinkle Nora.  Cheers!

Fam & Ihrie Ruin Explorers: OneVisions Volta Chapter

This is the special chapter of Ruin Explorers that was printed as part of Kunihiko Tanaka’s OneVisions Volta artbook. As far as I can tell, it’s the last Ruin Explorers chapter ever written, and there’s no sign in sight for any more.

Welp, there’s nothing left for me to do but to slowly work on translating the RPG.
