“There are english translations, however the translations aren’t all that hot.”

“(be warned, the translation can get pretty bad sometimes)”

Com’on guys (the unsatisfied readers), tell us where we’re messing up? :(
The good thing about this blog is the text is mutable. :D

(Even if it’s not the chapters done by me, let’s see if we can reach a better consensus by now?)

  1. The first 3 volumes were a mess. 4-9 were only marginally better till you took over.

    • Really? I thought it had a solid beginning (the comic itself was wild back then). They had to settle on a lot of conventions for the terminologies, which we later carry on. Or maybe my memory is failing me. I have more “bi-lingualism” to help (some Chinese will laugh at me for making up words, haha), but the literary aspects suffers because I don’t read much fiction/translation (i.e. Ro3K in English).
