Well first off, I apologise for my slow progress. And I’m aware of Baka Tsuki taking down all of its AW-related content, and along with it stuff that I didn’t find time to download too.. In any case, some questions have been coming up again and again, and I’d like to address them all at once.
Q: Where can we find Chapters 1-6 of Volume 6?
A: Not anywhere that I know of. It is my honest mistake to not have saved their raw text, but I believed that they were not important. :P Besides introducing Shinomiya Utai and a little bit of fanservice, not much actually happens when it comes to plot. The only significant thing that occurred is the Kings’ meeting, and information about that can be covered in summaries.
Q: Will you translate Chapters 1-6?
A: Not likely. I mean, I have limited time to translate, and I’d much rather spend it on either retranslating Chapter 6 (which was poorly translated) or completing Chapter 7 (which is filled with Ash-lingo). I believe summaries can help plug the gaps in knowledge, but if you really want them translated, you’re in for a wait.
Q: Where are the illustrations for Volume 5?
A: Welp. I don’t have them in soft copy anywhere in my laptop. I’m sourcing with some regul/a/rs to see if they have it stashed away somewhere, but for now you have my apologies.
Q: Can you provide us with PDF versions of your translations?
A: I can, but I don’t see the point currently.
Look at it this way: there’s no complete volumes on my blog currently that is completed, edited, and illustrations added. For this reason, I’m not willing to compile V5 into a PDF form at the moment because I need to find the illustrations and insert them.
I think that’s all the questions I have atm, but you’re welcome to post more below. I’ll answer them asap.
Oh, and there’s now a Fan fiction page. I won’t post any more updates as of now, since I’m concentrating on translation, not updating the fanfic. So that’s just the introduction and chapter 1 up. Read at your own leisure.
Translation is still my priority, don’t worry.
