Really? I have the raw scans, so I would expect to see that some one had tried to translate them.

I think what people want are "fan translated" versions of the novel itself.. (similar to fansubs)

Although I believe sharing links would somehow be a form of breaking forum rules or something..


I'm really wondering how some people already have ideas on how the novel goes and how the characters are.. even before the anime had begun airing.

Some of us read the raw novel. That's why we understand how the novel goes and how the characters are. Speaking of fan translation, chinese translation is usually a lot faster than english one so I think you will have more luck searching for that if you understand chinese.

As far as I know, vol 1 & 2 are translated in Chinese already. Someone is working on vol 5. I have no idea why vol 3 and 4 are skipped.

Vol.6 is coming out on 24th Dec - Christmas Eve.

Amazon Japan will begin sale on 21st.

I just pre-ordered it... says it takes about 9~10 days to arrive.


I could try doing the translation for this forum, but it would be at very slow pace... and I might not be able to port all the jokes and puns that author puts in. (playing with meaning/pronounciation of words, idioms and proverbs is nightmare for translator...)

If that's Ok with you, I could try...

then why ask for the baka-tsuki. It's a lot easier. With a translator for a series. It would be add to the series in baka-tsuki. Plus it's easier for novel readers too.

I'm not ready to commit to translating a series yet so I have to refuse that offer. The difference between a formal translation and translation at a forum is that I don't have to translate every word from the novel, I can just translate the story into some kind of a detailed summary and insert the important conversation there.

Also, a few months ago when Yuzuru announced the sixth volume, Okiura put a new pixiv image featuring a potentially fanservice shot of Rinin with her shirt open

This was the heading text: セカンド幼馴染にワンチャン

I wonder if there was something like in terms of illustration in the sixth volume

Image in question:

Need another 2-4 weeks before my copy arrive. If by the time my copy arrive there's still no novel illustration uploaded somewhere, I'll try upload mine. Can't promise on the picture quality though.

Actually thats because vol5 is translated by a separate group they know the original group is working on 3 and 4 so they decided to go ahead and work on vol5.

From what i know it takes Ichika 2 volumes to complete his harem. And unlike typical male harem leads who is the subject of the hatred and jealousy of fellow male friends and acquaintances, since this is a female school its actually his harem thats getting all the glares and spite from all the other female classmates, only thing he has to worry about is that his own rather dangerous and psychotic harem.
And in combat Ichika is getting team combos with each individual girls it seems. In vol2 he basically pulls off Rampage Ghost(1st version) with Charlotte. and in vol 3 he gets another combo he does with Houki.

Actually 5's by himself, not a group. As soon as v2 is over, v2's translator's friend started v3 before that, and he's solo translating v3. V4 is translated by another friend of v2's translator, who became the proofreader of v4, once v4's done, they will go back and finish translate v3 (if it's still not done).

WE ALL KNOW THAT THE MOST IMPORTANT AND AWESOME PERSON (probably the strongest) IN THAT HAREM WILL DOMINATE THEM ALL. I doubt anyone would dare to even look at her the wrong way =P.

To be honest, I'm really surprised because this is looking like a true harem, instead of the pseudo guy-with-one-true-love-but-with-30-million-girls-liking-him type of harem

To quote my post on B-T:

After checking out the information, I might want to do a teaser if possible after I've seen the anime (not like I'm been seeing many anyway).
Also, most likely, I'll go for one volume, and I'll see the response to it, but there's no guarantee that I'll be doing this project, and if I am, I'll prefer to do it with a translation group this time (if anyone can recommend me one that has shown interest in it).

I just read the synopses for this show

You know.. one of the things I loved about Strike Witches is that ideology, nationalism and politics are ignored in that show

With IS, at least from the synopses that I have read implies that there's a considerably thick "boo hoo.. the world is bullying on Japan. We are the victims of this war" mentality

I this just played for gags or will this prevent me for enjoying this story?
