Manga list and stuff

Back to life as usual, I guess. Oreo is seriously refusing to like New Cat. Can't say that I blame him, though. For the first time today I noticed that he seems to have extra black spots on his face. Turns out they're the spots where her claws got him. (In proper lighting, they do look red instead of black, so we're pretty sure they're not infected.)

Our copy of UP came in the mail today. We decided we really want Mom to see it, so when we called and asked her when she wanted to, she said she didn't know if she wanted to see it at all, because multiple sources had informed her that it's a sad movie. And I was going to have a brief, spoilery discussion of what makes the movie sad (or not, depending on your perspective), but then we realized certain people might read it and tell her. Or she might read it. Anyway, we don't think it's a sad movie, but we offered to bring a happy movie to watch afterwards, to cheer everyone up after the ultra-depressingness that apparently is UP, and she seemed to like the compromise. Either that or she was distracted by the new (to her) piece of information that all Disney Blu-ray discs come with a DVD. But that's something to look forward to.

I thought I'd share a bit of the kinds of things we worry about when translating manga. We're working on Negima!? neo, and this demon tells this guy to die. But "die" by itself doesn't seem to pack enough punch (based on how the Japanese was conjugated and stuff), so we ended up wondering if a demon would tell someone they hated to rot in hell, or if they would not want that person there, because, as a demon, wouldn't hell be their home? Maybe that's only a certain type of demon. I don't know. For now, we're sticking with just plain "die."

Um... right, speaking of manga, lyschan asked for an updated list of what we've translated. Let's see...

I tried to bold the new stuff, but since I couldn't find the last list we did, I don't know what was actually new or not. (I bolded anything where I added a volume, too.) We copied the list from the list we send in e-mails, so it was pretty up-to-date already.

Anyway. Today I'm thankful for making lots of progress on Negima!? neo, having candy from the bishop's office, getting UP in the mail, getting to try out our new alarm clock tomorrow morning (we didn't want to try it on Sunday, because we had to actually get up and if it didn't work, well... and we didn't try it today because we didn't want to clear a space for it on the dresser yesterday), and new Castle on tonight! Yay!
