Talking about yuki, i was interested into why did the author made yuki read that perticular book, specifically the "hyperion" series.

It's so clever, because if you look into what that book is about.....time travellers, alien sentient-machines..... a God being in human form.....

all....interesting stuff....

>__>; I really need to get the novels... My love for Haruhi is the perfect way to force myself to learn more kanji, and maybe I could help translating.

I actually think it would be fun to translate, because right now I am translating something for my Japanese class homework and enjoying it. Aa, kanji kanji...

Every time you release a translated chapter of the novel, please don't forget to contact Manganews about it so they can list it or you can pm about it and I'll add it.

Okay, I'm going to start with the Prologue right now (my time for the next few weeks is going to be pretty strained though, what with class ending).

I'm going to edit pretty liberally, because I think that the wording being natural in English is pretty important. If I'm messing up the meaning at all, change it back.

I found "hyperion" too in the chapter 2 novel! Look at this line: "Nagato Yuki sat in her usual spot, reading a hardback book about the effects of Saturn's satellites falling down."

As you know Hyperion is one of Saturn's satellites and the book she had read before was titled Hyperion too (according to the anime). Is it a coincident? Now I wonder why Yuki likes everything about Hyperion.

Interesting, because I thought it had to do with the actual book series:

Hmm, I never knew of any Hyperion book, I just translated it as it is.

Seems like I can connect today again.

Thanks for the cookies guys. One thing to note: if you have too little posts, your positive cookie would show up as a +0 for me. I don't know whether you need at least 30 or 100 to be able to give people a positive/negative rep. So while your cookies are appreciated, instead of wasting them, you can send me a PM until your post count is high enough.

Another question:

Spoiler for Yet Another Hyperion Stuff:


"effects of Saturn's satellites falling down" sound similar to this book "The Fall of Hyperion (1990)". Could it be the novel refer to that book instead of physic book about saturn's satellites?

Which makes perfect sense (as stated in the other thread), since we see her reading "The Fall of Hyperion" in Ep2, and she gives Kyon a copy of "Hyperion" (IMO, that sure looks like the Japanese version of Hyperion) in EP3. In EP3 she's reading a different book, but I have no idea what that one is (but that's rather Off-topic for this thread).

(I'm quoting information from the Anime as, thus far, the Anime has been very spot on... at least, according to people who have actually read the novels ^^:;)

"The Organization". That's the name in both Japanese and Chinese volumes.

Kinny Riddle is doing the bulk of the translation. I am just here as a support (and part time translator until my exams end this month). Therefore if you have any question, go bother him ;^).
