But what about the translation itself? If it's particulary bad, is this to the point where it ruins the story's immersion?
For example, if I could either read the Sound Novel or the Manga,
would the Manga actually be the better alternative in this case?
I read all the Mangagamer versions and to answer your question, no it isn't that bad, minus some spelling errors. The translation itself was alright, I understood the story well.

The VN is more complete than the manga. The only downside to using Mangagamer's version is they changed the soundtracks from the original.
