So I managed to set out on the road to the completion of my original goal, which was to simply do more translations to gain experience.
This was greatly facilitated by the joint project of No Fatigue with kookiedreamer, so I thank her for allowing me to work with her on this one.
By translating No Fatigue I realized that translating mondaiji is hella difficult compared to a more ‘light’ light novel, so it wasn’t just my gross incompetence that lead to me not translating it fast enough. Since I managed to get a little more experience with translating now, I should be able to return to mondaiji too in the near future. I’m looking forward to it.
