Yeah I don't think Chapter 1 is that terrible in terms of errors. There are also a few errors in terms of number agreement where I should have pluralized something but didn't, or some parts where I forgot to use the past tense in narration.

If I'm not also a bit OCD as well I'd be really surprised.

the only major typo I saw was when Sera was introduced. I think it was after the line where Haruna asked who Sera was. Also OCPD is a personality disorder. People with this disorder tend to be perfectionists. Which I think I just showed in this post.

Don't forget that things that are awkwardly worded but technically grammatically correct are fair game too! Sometimes I translate long sentences and they end up sounding really funky in English.

hahaha thats translation even if you understand the sentence in your head, putting it into "understandable" words is a different problem

I wouldn't know how to fix those. After all there are jokes and phrases in Japanese that can't be translated effectively into another language.

I mean more like just things that sound awkward. If I wrote

"I was at the store, and because I was hungry, I bought an apple,"

it would probably sound better if I wrote

"At the store, I bought an apple because I was hungry."

Stuff like this happens often in my translations because the ordering of words in sentences in Japanese is often directly opposite ordering of words in sentences in English, and sometimes I don't notice where I'm translating stuff awkwardly like that. Which is where my editors come in.

understandable. But as I've said before everything that has been translated and edited so far is very good.

P.S. for your translator's notes for 3-1 number 1 I guess you could say that the name stems from McDonald's. It would be same as when in anime they have something like boogle instead of google.

Lol I know it was a reference to McDonalds. They just screwed with the name more than I'm used to.

they always will to avoid copy rite(hope I spelled it right) laws. It is always easier to tweak an already existing name than to think up a new one. It saves time but does nothing for creativity. lol

Sera is a tsundere . There are hints she does like in vol 7
Quote:
For sera, her ending phrase. She (most likely a tsundere response), says, "Even I am feeling uncomfortable. There is no way....(pause)...that I am feeling jealous."
Go to page 54 that tells you some things about vol 10.

hi, guys after see the 2 seasons of the anime version , i have a question, on anime is strongle hinted who ayumo trully love Eu, the others girls are much more like "i'm a too much good guy who dont like to break girls heart", is the same on LN?, i know this is a harem comedy ecchi and because of this he never gona really end with only 1 girl or even confess feelings to some1(and even Eu looks like dont have any problens about ayumu get surrounded by others girls). but like i told on anime he aways showed what girl he really cares or owns him heart, on the Light Novel or manga is the same? or he just totally pervert and like to be surrounded by girls or "too much a good guy who can't break any girl heart".

Eu is the main heroine, and Ayumu's relationship with Eu is an important one. However, it has been hinted that Haruna starts to take more place, and we might have a true triangle with Ayumu-Eu-Haruna.

(And also, Eu gets jealous in the LN. Especially when Saras appeared.)

what was the first time Eu got jealous after Saras appeared? Also does she always get jealous when Haruna or Sera is around him(i.e. just sitting next to him)?

edit: Btw you said they messed up the part with Eu's jealousy in the episode they met Nene, right? What did Eu do to display her jealousy in the novel during that scene?

hmmm in anime he relationship with haruna looks much more big brother and little sister than romantic, mine prefered girls is tomonori because she(aways and the most) is 1 of the fews girls who dont threat him bad(tomonori, hiramatsu and Eu), all others girls exceptionally haruna aways are bulling him(on the lasts episodes Saras starting to change from her tsun tsun to dere dere on him and start to be good with him too).
