As You Like It? revisited

Stalling chores again today, we watched another new series on Crunchyroll! Cuticle Detective Inaba! It's crazy! I figured it would be more of a gag type thing when I noticed that there were two titles for the first episode (Polar Bear Cafe and Squid Girl both have two stories per episode), and I was not disappointed. It was much faster paced than Polar Bear Cafe, which was a bonus, and it had our favorite Miyu Irino as one of the main characters. That and all the zaniness have us liking it a lot. Hopefully there will be less blood in future episodes, though...

Anyway, I don't know if everybody's had time to read As You Like It? yet, Collapse )

You know something really sad? We actually started translating the Akiyoshi Family Series shorts. We'd translated at least one, maybe two about Rei. So we were thinking about that when we were thinking about what to translate last week, and we were like, "We do already have one or two of those stories translated... Maybe even three..." And then we thought about it a little longer and realized that we never transferred the file to our new computer. We didn't bother transferring any of our manga translations, because all the important ones were stored in our email. But since that one was incomplete, we never emailed it to anyone. It's not on our flash drive, either. We could probably still get it, since we do still have our old tower, but it would be a bit of an ordeal. But perhaps not as much of an ordeal as retranslating the whole thing... Hmm... On the other hand, retranslating doesn't require actual physical labor, while getting the old tower in here to hook up to the monitor requires heavy lifting. Hmmm... So then it becomes a question of how much time we want it to take. Or how much we even care at all.

Today I'm thankful for getting to watch all of The 10th Kingdom, getting to watch Cuticle Detective Inaba, getting our chores done, finding out there was such a thing as Mrs. Columbo, and having pretzel-dipped Drumsticks to have for dessert tonight.
