If you really have a problem with my translations, you can change it, delete it whatever, that is why the whole thing is a wiki. I just finished reading the remaining 4 books and...I need a break.
You seem to be getting a little defensive. I'm practically not home for 5 days a week, and only allowed to use my phone for Internet for like 20mins a night or no time at all. And my weekend is practically gone this week.
But that's not the point, I'm only checking with you about your source, because phrases missing or lines missing or completely different terms are simply not translation differences.

So the second chapter of the manga has appeared, ending with the "You're going to be my contract spirit/servant/slave" -- and the comments at the hosting sites have gone wild with ZnT comparisons..

Make her hair pink and she'd nearly be a Louise clone, though Claire is better developed in the chest area

Apart from the level of translation, even the source is important. So nothing wrong in the said above

There is a difference between being defensive and being annoyed. I am pretty sure I am not translating the whole thing into fan-fiction levels, and I openly admit I am very bad at names. And after reading the remaining 4 volume, I realize there are a lot of spot where I could have done a better job, especially now I realize some words actually carried a different meaning after re-reading. In the one hour per day I devote to translation, I really didn't have the time to fix things.

But, to make you feel better, I definitely will not do another translation on this project. And you have my permission to yank anything I may have done. I would already done so but I didn't want to annoy the editors who changed the work already.

Oh, here is the source. Go nuts

Back on topic, it seems that Rinslet (I think its her that has the wolf spirit) hardly gets any character development from what I've read on BT and the spoilers, is that true?
Well, some, she get into quite a few fights with Claire on pet feeding. It is mentioned in one of the chapter her wish is to free a relative (elder sister?) who is literally on ice.

And other course, a lot on the loli sister which believe Renselt is currently seeing Kamito. (Funny enough, Ellis's family assume the same thing and threatened military retaliation if Ellis's feeling is hurt.....)

Oh, one of the Volume 8 chapter is devoted to Claire and Rinselt's first meeting (at age of 9), where they found out the Estien family "forbidden books" turned out to be porn ~

Same here. I also feel that Scarlet's depiction in the manga is rather skewed.

Hmm, the manga version is serialized monthly, right? So why the hell it is very short on pages? (Even 1st chapter was very short on pages as well)

Well 2 chap to cover the 1 chap of the vol is the usual norm bit I agree it could've ended in one longer chap

I dont think so, most of the translators that did the translation are all now inactive. There might be someone translating.

Rather than keep whining and complaining over the absence of translators/translations, it's better to learn japanese/chinese, folks. I'm not being offensive here, i just feel pissed by some people that keep expecting the translators to do something while they themselves don't do anything beside reading and whining. Translators have their own lives, and BT is not a fansub. Probably Teh ping has gotten bored to remind it all the time.
