Kirie and the little girl

Oh my gosh, you guys, we actually made decent progress on our Noragami edit today! We would have made it through a whole chapter if we hadn't also had UQ Holder to work on today! Probably! It's just a little extra hard because I'm going through a "self-conscious about dialogue writing" phase right now. That's the problem with translating something that has been translated by someone else in one way or another (subtitled anime, scanslation, etc.). Since we know there is something to compare it to, we want to make sure ours is at least as good. And because we're snooty like that, we want ours to be better (especially when it comes to scans, those dirty rotten...). So I think that's one of many reasons Noragami has been stressing me out. But it is really fun, too, so it's really not that bad.

Anyway, speaking of UQ Holder!, Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for a super fun chapter of UQ Holder! to translate, evidence that it was not our Kamigami no Asobi playlist somehow slowing our editing progress (although we have been listening to that and only that for four days, so maybe we'll listen to something else tomorrow (maybe)), getting to order Theatrhythm Curtain Call (maybe not the best financial decision, but our birthday's coming up!), making it through almost a whole chapter of Noragami editing today, and more story updates in Kingdom Hearts [chi].
