Like the wind!!

We're translating like CRAZY!!! Actually not really, but we're going really fast! We not only finished touching up Elemental Gelade 5 before lunch, but we had time to watch the last two episodes of Night Head Genesis.

And then we started translating Ai Yori Aoshi 17, which was pretty awesome at first, but quickly became a moral dilemma. We should have seen it coming, it being Ai Yori Aoshi and the last volume. We knew there would be an intimate scene, but we didn't realize it would be that intimate. It was tastefully done, we think (having not seen a whole lot of really intimate scenes, though come to think of it, it wasn't a whole lot worse than the one scene with Lex and Lana in Smallville, but that might just be because we don't have a problem seeing breasts), but we're kind of wishing Fumizuki-sensei had cut away at some point.

Anyway. On the bright side, the translation is going really fast, and we should be able to turn it in tomorrow! Or Friday, if we get lazy. But we got three more work orders yesterday, and our boss assured us that she's not trying to overwork us, just that they're really far behind schedule. So we're hoping to turn things in fast to help pick up the pace. Our deadlines actually seem fairly spread out despite the crunch, so hopefully this will help a lot. But next we'll be working on the Del Rey series.

Today I'm thankful for being able to translate like the wind!, manga serieses that don't cause moral dilemmas, manga ratings, printer paper (which we need more of...), and plushies.
