Earth’s After School Rest – Volume 2, Chapter 8

In this chapter, we take a break from exploring and contemplating phantoms. Instead, we see what Masashi does every night the girls go to take their bath. It’s a fun little chapter before Chapter 9 in which we return to the mysteries of the world in which they are stranded.

The release this week, though not quite delayed, was not as fast as I wanted. Real life stuff always hits the fan on Friday, so unfortunately, I was unable to finish type setting as early as I wanted. I’ll finish up the translation for Chapter 9 and then typeset most of it by the end of the weekend.

Earth’s After School Rest – Volume 2, Chapter 7

In this chapter, we venture into Yaeko’s past and gain some key insights into what has shaped her as a person. We also meet a character who is instrumental in her life.

After some technical issues and a lot of difficulty determining how to make this chapter read smoother in English, it’s finally finished. It was a fun chapter to translate in general. It helped me see some of the major difficulties with translating. In Japanese, this chapter flows nicely, but because of the differences of sentence construction between English and Japanese, it was tough making it flow as well in English.

Also, there are a lot of translations notes this week partly because of the difficulty of making it flow, but also because there was a lot in the way of culture that seemed worthwhile addressing.

Earth’s After School Rest – Volume 1, Chapter 6

Here it is: the final chapter in the first volume! This chapter provides some intrigue for those of you interested in more than just the relationships between each character. As they say, “the plot thickens!” Although, it’s more like it’s thickening with more enigmas. Look forward to next volume’s first chapter by the beginning of the weekend!

Also, I’m thinking about translating one of two manga as a side project. Both were begun by groups, but never completed. Since neither group has worked on either series in quite a long time, I’m thinking about breathing life into these series once again. Both are much darker and more graphic than Earth’s After School Rest. Since these manga would be side projects, I would not allow it to interfere with my current release schedule of once every 3 – 5 days.

Anyway, enjoy your manga!

Earth’s After School Rest – Volume 1, Chapter 5

It’s a first! I finished before some unbelievably late hour.

We have a little bit of action of some kind in this chapter, but I won’t ruin the surprise. This chapter wasn’t terribly challenging to translate or confusing. There weren’t as many Japanese language ambiguities as usual, so there’s not much to say about it. As a result, I felt like there was a lack of translation notes. No worries, I’m certain I’ll make up for it in the next chapter or two.

Speaking of which, I’ve already translated Chapter 6, so all I have to do is clean it and typeset it. If tomorrow doesn’t throw me any curve balls, I should be finished before the end of the weekend.

Edit: For some reason, Mangahere hasn’t yet approved my upload of Chapter 5. I’ll update it when they make it available. Also, for those who see this post, Chapter 6 is about 50% complete with typesetting.

Earth’s After School Rest – Volume 1, Chapter 4

In this chapter, we see a younger Masashi at least two years before the disappearance of humankind. Though it does not particularly advance the plot, it provides insight into Masashi’s character and daily life before humankind’s disappearance.

I’d like to give a shout-out to Zakudono this week from Seiai Scans for the precious and useful advice. Since I am still a novice scanalator, he advised me on the process of leveling manga, which is basically what gives the manga its rich contrast between black and white instead of the grays that were seen in the first three translations I performed. I’m slowly getting the hang of this thing! As always, all advice is welcome.

Also, I’m having trouble accessing Rapid gator from where I am right now. I’ll see if it’s up tomorrow.

After arriving home, Rapidgator appears to be alive and well. The latest chapter has been uploaded to RG and reader links have been added.
