Finally finished translating that game scene. Posted to fandom tumblr. I hope eventually it starts getting likes, and maybe even follows. However, with the cruft (for the translations I’m doing for a patch), the scenes are too long for tumblr, so I linked to the Googledocs repository. (the project has kind of stalled, btw, but I hope someday someone will finish it).
In other news, people are still liking my Shiki posts, surprisingly. I wonder why so many people like the fifth post, as I think the 8th post is the most interesting, as it explains WTF Shiki was all about. Shiki is not really an enigmatic book, you know, it has Ideas and Themes and is not shy about discussing them. I kind of prefer things that way, actually, because I am a fairly lazy reader and because I also think it works better because otherwise people won’t get it. However it doesn’t come off as didactic, probably because it is hard to endorse either Toshio or Seishin 100%.
Whoa, I didn’t realize that I have had over 1000 posts on this blog. Congratulations, blog. XD
I would post more to Tumblr in a less linkbloggy way but lack the energy these days. TBH though, these days my fandom does consist of stalking the Asus Transformer and hoping the price will go down, and then when I get it I’ll probably be very boring, reviewing apps and attempting to play games and read manga and remote desktop on it. I am reading a book now, very slowly, about funerary customs in medieval Japan, which really reminds me of Hi Izuru Tokoro no Tenshi, which I really must reread so I can blog about it. Er, not that the book, which is rather scholastic and dry, reminds me of it in plot, but the religious drawings of Buddhas and Wisdom Kings and what have you appearing alongside monks and what have you attending funerals (in other words, as apparitions, though that is probably not the right word).
