DSICEZWVAAAw_kS

Sorry I haven’t updated the site in a while. Anyways seasons 1 and 2 of the anime are going to be rebroadcast on NicoNico on the 13th and 14th of January. There is also going to be a seiyuu event on the 13th where they are going to talk about the Departures OVA (Mio,Maria,and Kurumi’s seiyuu’s will be in attendance).

In site related news, I updated the sample translations with the first part of the volume 9 prologue for people who might be interested in that. Crowdfund contributors You should be getting an update for part 4 of the volume 11 prologue in a few hours.

Testament of Sister New Devil Departures PV

 

The first PV for the upcoming OVA is out. The animation looks great. It looks like they actually have a budget this time when the animation is compared with season 1 and Burst. The anime original direction that this seems to be going in is a bit disappointing. I’m glad Basara we’re getting a “swagged out” version of Basara complete with his winter coat from volumes 8-10. I’m curious as to how they are going to handle Chisato as well as the Nonaka’s being summoned back to the Village. Hopefully we get a second PV that will gives us an idea on what to expect with the service scenes during comiket.

 

Story Synopsis:

After the struggle for supremacy involving the entire demon world settled down, Basara and the girls have regained their peaceful everyday life. One day that starts with Mio’s “Full of Wrong Bathroom Soap” play, they go to an indoor pool on Maria’s recommendation. However, Mio activates her curse of aphrodisiac by Basara’s accidental action! For Mio who is writhing painfully, Basara decides to take action in the pool…!? Meanwhile, Yuki and Kurumi receive an order from the hero village that is making a threatening move. Basara and the girls’ exciting vacation begins in a short holiday!

Based on the synopsis I’m under the impression that we’re going to be getting anime original content mixed in with a liberal adaption of content and themes from novels 8,9, and potentially 10.

 

In other news Nomi should be finished with part 2 of the volume 11 prologue possibly tonight or tomorrow. Translations for part 3 should start by Sunday.

Translation time table changes

Traditionally Nomi has tried to push out large translation updates every week. She is now going to be switching to smaller daily updates. Translating smaller amounts of text daily not only gives crowdfund contributors daily updates, but it also ensures that the quality of the translation remains consistent throughout.

In other news,

The translation of the volume 11 prologue is progressing, and I’m still waiting for On to catch up with reading the series through volume 7 before he begins working on finishing up the first two chapters of volume 8.

General News and Updates

This past weekend I added a second translator ( On Takahashi) to help Nomi with translations. He’s primarily going to be focused on finishing the translations for the first two chapters of volume 8. Since he enjoys reading the series, I’m currently waiting for him to catch up on reading volumes 5 through 7 before he begins translations for the first two chapters of volume 8. He should hopefully be caught up by the end of this week.

In terms of experience, he has done translations for Mitsubishi, Japan Rail, and various video game companies. He’s also translated several shoujo manga, and has done translations for Macross Frontier as well as Re Zero.

Nomi will be starting the translations for the volume 11 prologue this week.

In terms of updates.

I added the second part of volume 8 chapter 2 and I also added the fourth part of volume 9 chapter 4. I also posted the volume 11 summary. Keep in mind it isn’t completely finished yet and is missing several details.
