10 more days without progress. Skyman, would it be possible to wrap it up before the end of the month? This content update is stalling the updates that follow it...

Really? How so?

Probably not, no. I have a lot to do this week. By the way, many of the names really oughtn't be transliterated, since I have no way of knowing which of the possible Japanese pronunciations is the desired. I would much prefer if we could simply keep the Kanji for those names that are obviously Japanese, rather than me guessing. Is that ok?

I'm getting the impression that Missagh wants this done first before moving on to the next thing, is all.

We could keep them there between brackets, but as most people can't read Japanese, a transliteration is desirable.

Hardly seems worth it, but who am I to argue? ^^

Good compromise. I'll revisit the first two pages and update the ones that I feel should have Kanji-topping before moving on to the next page. (Also, please be advised that I'm not happy with some of the translations of page two yet -- I'll have to run them by a friend for a second opinion.)

Thanks skymandr! I just finished putting all that into the gallery.

Now I only need the credits for the winning fan art.
Abysmal Darkess - Misaki

You mean "Darkness", right?
Strawberri

Shouldn't that be "Strawberry"?

Ah, damn... I did make a note of that... I'll see what I can do about it, either tonight or on Thursday...

Yes, I mean Darkness...

Strawberri

Well... That's a matter of opinion... It is misspelled in the Japanese, and I thought that should carry over to English. =)
