Miraculous manga day!

New Miraculous manga today! Woohoo! ...I'm not sure I have much to say about this month's chapter, though. After going a bit off the rails last month, it seemed to be following the original pretty closely this time, with maybe a little more drama for one of Evillustrator's appearances. The art was super cute, as usual.

...And that's pretty much it for today. Except that we worked on Kingdom Hearts manga! Tadah! This one has an interesting process, because, since it's not an original series, sometimes (okay, a lot of the times) our translations end up differently from the game version, and we end up writing notes when that happens to explain why we want to go with our translation instead. This ends up making the translation take significantly longer than it normally would--each chapter has about the same amount of pages as an Edens Zero, but way less dialogue. So you'd expect it to go much more quickly, but sometimes when our notes get especially fiddly, a chapter can take an entire workday. I feel like it's good exercise, though.

This time was okay, though! So we also had time to do a final readthrough on the Fire Force volume we finished yesterday. It was a pretty good day.

Today I'm thankful for getting to read more Miraculous manga, super cute drawings of our favorite Miraculous characters, this month's Kingdom Hearts being relatively low-stress, having a new flavor of ice cream to try, and getting to feel productive today.
