The reason for the creation of this blog

The main reason for creating this blog was, so that the readers can kick my ass more easily for not translating fast enough. It’s also easier to communicate than on the wiki format, so it’s easier for me to get hopefully constructive feedback. It’s easier to follow this as well.

Who is this guy?

The reason for the delays with the Mondaiji translations. Namely Firebird.
I also recently started a collaboration work with kookiedreamer on the No Fatigue web novel.

Pro/Con?

Pro: I do my best to be easily understandable without straying too far from the original text.

Con: What else than the abysmally slow translation rate!

Goals

I aim to have more translations done. Period. The main problem I have I think is the lack of speed stemming from the lack of experience.

  1. Hey Firebird, thanks for the Translation for mondaiji I really enjoy them. I would love to donate to you as I think you are doing a wonderful job.

    • I’m very happy that you’ve found my translations enjoyable! It feels really good when readers find it a well done translation.
      On the topic of donation, I’ve added a section about it above, but as I mention it there you shouldn’t feel obligated to do so. If you wish to do so anyway, then I would be of course very grateful!

      • Donation complete 🙂 , just a question on the series do you plan to translate the sequel ”Last embryo” once Mondaiji finishes ? and I looked up on myanimelist and it appears that Asuka and Yo do not appear in ”Last embryo” is this true ?

        • Thank you very much!
          I will probably continue with it when the rest of the 12 vols of mondaiji are done.
          As far as I know Asuka and Yo didn’t appear yet in the first 2 volumes, but I didn’t read them yet so I could be mistaken.

  2. finally found your blog!
    why the fuck took me so long ?
    since the first time i heard the name “firebird” on the Mondaiji translations, i have been serching for you.
    Now, first thank you for all the quality translations.
    second, No Fatigue is interesting.
    and last, may sound annoying but a have to ask, any progress on Vol. 11 Chapter 1, or is Magref the one doing it ?

    • Vol.11 Chapter 1 is in theory will be done by a Baka-Tsuki user Eclipse9, but it’s been a while since he registered for it. If there is no sign of it completing in the near future or it doesn’t measure up to my standards, then I will translate/retranslate it myself.
      Magref is currently slowed by university stuff, so I can’t say if or when or with what he will continue with in the future, but according to his latest stance, he won’t stop translating yet.

  3. Hey, Firebird how are you~
    Just dropping by to ask if you are still planing to translate V11. I’m just wondering if you dropped it or it’s just stalled.

    Like

    • Sorry for not replying sooner. It’s not dropped, I plan on translating it as soon as I can.

      • No worries. I see, that’s great~ Just wanted to make sure.
        (I know how hard it is to translate Mondaiji when Author goes full chuuni XD)
        Oh, and one more thing.I don’t know if you heard but I might translate V12, but I’ll be doing it just for fun and practicing JP(no registering on BT or anything). So whenever you finish V11 and if you decide to move to V12, (and I happen to have V12 translated at that time) pay no mind to my translations and continue with it as you like. (saying it just in case, lol.)
        Anyways, good luck with translating :]

  5. Hi, yomero from Lazy Neet Translations. Thanks for picking up the title where I left off. Sorry for the lack of communication from my side, but for the last year my life has been a mess. I’ve noticed it’s been over a month since your last release coupled with me considering resuming translating Hello Work, I don’t know if we can work out something.

    Like

    • Sorry for not replying sooner. I was also a bit swamped by work things so I’m late with the releases, but I will soon release at least the rest of Vol.2. As for talking out the rest, it might be better in e-mail format or maybe over at translators’ discord channel here. I will be online there so you can leave a message even if I’m not currently at the computer and I will answer when I see it.
