Monday is our busy day

Sooooo Mondays tend to be pretty busy for us, but we had to go and make it worse for ourselves by choosing not to go grocery shopping on Saturday. The reason we did that is that we were planning to do laundry on Saturday, but the laundry room was super busy all Saturday (or at least enough of Saturday for us to say forget it), and then we ended up needing to do laundry today. On top of that, we had a chapter of Cramer to translate today, which was a lot of fun and actually didn't have any soccer for once, but still took a ridiculous amount of time to translate. Your Lie in April was not this time-consuming! What happened!? I'm going to blame the beetles. And for anyone reading Farewell, My Dear Cramer, that will only make slightly more sense once the chapter goes live. I still worry that there's something we missed in regard to that, but we just don't have the time to worry about it.

In the meantime, our schedule would be pretty light except for the fact that we seem to have not one but two books that are due sooner than humanly possible because neither of them exists yet. Apparently the new thing is for us to travel into the future and gain access to chapters that haven't even been drawn yet. I mean, we're good, but we're not that good. On the other hand, we're always up for a challenge. ...And yet, we just don't have the know-how to travel through time. It's not exactly our field of expertise.

Anyway, the compromise for that is for us to translate the chapters that are available, which means slipping some extra chapters in when we have the time, and since our schedule is currently pretty light, it's not too daunting a concept.

Today I'm thankful for finally getting our laundry in (we still have to get it from the dryer, though), the frosting on the very frosted cake being vanilla and not cream cheese (that would have been tragic, because boy howdy is there a lot of frosting on that cake), finishing this month's chapter of Cramer and still having time to work on one of our time-travel chapters, the concept of time-travel chapters, and opening the blinds this evening to discover a cat attached to our window screen (he hung out for a little while and then was like, "Okay, not a fan of being looked at. Bye!" and dropped back down to the ground, sadly before we could take a picture).

I haven't been reading Cramer but the possibility of beetles is exciting to me :) (is it out in print yet? I'll probably read it that way.)

Time-travel chapters!! Wowww, you're amazing~! One of them is for the best series in the world, right???? Lucky......

Don't get too excited yet. The reason it was so confusing is that there were no actual images of beetles. I'm still not 100% correct that "beetle" is the correct translation, but the other option doesn't really make any more sense, either. Anyway, I know volume one is out in print in Japan, but for some reason I think there's still a delay in the English print releases...which makes about as much sense as the beetle thing, but I think in all cases it's just that we don't have all the numbers (which is why it doesn't add up).

We haven't actually figured out the time travel thing, unfortunately, but we do have partial volumes in the meantime. And yes, one of them is the best series in the world. XD

Ahh, got it! I don't think simulpub chapters on Crunchyroll go through the whole Kodansha Comics editorial process until they're being compiled for the full volume (I was asked to do some corrections for Sweetness and Lightning a few months ago to get v1 ready for print), so the delay may be because of that step of the process, along with checking for changes between the serialization and tankobon, and the whole 1-2 month process of getting books printed and distributed around the country to retailers.

Yay!!! :D

That makes sense with Crunchyroll, but this one goes straight to Amazon/Comixology. It still maybe makes sense that they get edited all over again for the print release, but I just don't know the process.
