Kuusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan[Manga]

Manga Translation progress:
Chapter 1:
temporarily stopped translating to study for exams probably will do parts of it when I'm not studying then finish up all the other chapters after I'm finished with exams (last one is December 12th)
(btw there will not be too much cleaning or redrawing because that is beyond my ability)
Translation - 8/33 pages (most of the early ones have a lot of text)
Typesetting - 0/33

Hello this is one of my first major posts but I want to start this topic because of personal interest and to ask for a bit of help. I found this series while looking for anime to watch, however it has yet to air. Usually, in that case, I try to find the manga and light novel but, of course, those have yet to translated so I decided to try and translate the manga.

I do have decent japanese skills and can slowly work my way through it learning things as I go, but ocasionally I run into problems which is where I need help. Now that I've explained the circumstances I should properly introuce the series.

Note this is taken from the JCafe post linked here

Kusen Madoushi Kouhosei no Kyoukan/ The Instructor of Aerial Combat Wizard Candidates/ (空戦魔導士候補生の教官)
Author : Yu Moroboshi (諸星 悠)
Artist : Arisu Shidou (獅童ありす)






Quote:
The story is set in the world where the human race is forced to live in aerial floating cities by the threat of evil creatures called Makouchu. Thus wizards — aerial combat mages who fight the insects with magical powers — came into being.

Kanata Age (Eiji) is a young man who lives on the floating wizard academy city of "Misutogan." He was once celebrated as the "Black Master Swordsman," the elite ace of the S128 special team. However, he is now despised as the "traitor of the special team." One day, he is assigned as the instructor of E601, a team that has suffered 10 consecutive defeats. E601 has three girls — Misora Whitale, Lecty Eisenach, and Rico Flamel.

Things I need help with

Here is my list of terminology so far. It would be nice if it could be checked over and if some sugestions were made especially for the ones that I could not fully translate, if I could properly translate it at all.

魔甲蟲(まこうちゅう) - Magical Armoured Insects/Insect

浮遊都市(ふゆうとし) - Floating Cities/City (another option is Wandering Cities)

ウィザード - Wizards (pretty confident on this one =) )

空戦魔導士(くうせんまどうしょう) - Aerial Combat Wizards (it refers to them as wizards so mage, as in the Jcafe summary, does not seem quite right.

ミストガン - Mistogan/Mystogan/Mistogun/Mystogun

空戦魔導士科(yomigana - ガーヂアン) - Aerial Combat Wizards’ Division(yomigana- Gaurdian)

万融錬金科(yomigana -アルケミスト) - stuck on this one although I know that 錬金 is renkin as in 錬金術(renkinjutsu- Alchemy), 科 means division/course/family, 万(man) means 10,000 or 万(yorozu) means myriad or countless, and 融 means to melt, mix, or disolve. However no matter how I piece it together it makes no sense.

機械科学科(yomigana - マキナ) - The Mechanical Engineering Division (Yomigana - Machina[latin (orig Greek makhanį - "machine, tool") - nominative case - singular - feminine - machine])

空戦魔導士科長(yomigana - ガーヂアンリーダー) - The Leader of the Aerial Combat Wizard Division(Yomigana - Guardian’s Leader)

S128特務小隊(yomigana - ロイやるガード)隊長// クロエ・セヴィニー//異名:⟪寂滅姫⟫(yomigana - ニルヴァーナ - Leader of the Special Platoon S128(Royal Guards)// Chloe Sevigny(not 100% sure about the last name)// Alias: ⟪Nirvana Princess⟫(yomigana - Nirvana)

フロン・フラメル - Flon Flamel

This sentence is also giving me a bit of trouble mostly the "魔甲蟲との戦闘" and the "ウイザードの三割."
魔甲蟲との戦闘を主としウイザードの三割が所属する空戦魔導士科(yomigana - ガーヂアン)

Any help is apreiciated =).

I'm translating the manga.I have no idea when I will finish. I would translate the novel but my japanese is not quite good enough for that so it would take a really long time. So I'm starting off on the easier medium, and eventually plan on translating light novels.

I don't know If I would translate this one's light novel but I'll decide that when my skills are good enough and after I determine how much I like the manga after translating it for a while.

BTW added a progress thing so people can see how much I've done so far.

That would be nice. Although I do have exams coming up so I may have to pause then.
Yeah I know brilliant idea to start translating something just before exams start =P.

That does not sound too hard to finish translating, even if it goes longer it won't be that big of a deal. If the first chapter goes well I will try to catch up to and keep up with the raws.

From what I've translated so far I'm not sure about the MC being similar but the situation itself is very similar. There are differences of course and I'm guessing the way the technology and magic function will be different.

Aerial Combat Wizards Division where third part(30%) of wizards belong and consider (little fix)battles against magical armored insects as the main goal. (I believe 主とし would be the same as 主とする "to consider/treast as" and here it fits, I guess)

Abot this one - 万融錬金科, I'm not sure myself but try with this 万有 (all creation/all things). Both are read in the same way, it's just that authors sometimes tend to do play of words.

Btw, I like this manga, is there a ln for this? GL with your translating lad

万融錬金科is a make up word that contains character of tempering and melting and based on the character for Katakana which is Alchemist, we would get : specialization for dissolving and refining various metals. As the the word 万 is also used when indicate a large number, so various is one possible translation, we could also translated as thousands of over various.
