Another month, another Sakura Trick chapter by yours truly! And hey, we’re 3 chapters left until we’re done with volume 6. Judging by our pace, we may finish volume 6 by the end of the year… And that also means, assuming we continue providing 1 chapter per month, we may finish volume 8 in 2019! Haha! Ha… ha…
Oh hey, we’re (sorta) back at translating Aikatsu! doujins! We haven’t translated anything since June, huh? And yeah… we’re still looking for translators for the lengthier and complicated doujins. For now, you’ll just have to deal with the drought until we sorted this out. Anyway…

It wouldn’t be long for everyone on this spinning round planet to adapt UHD, so this got me thinking: “We scan our own doujins, and we have full control over the final output, so why not provide higher resolution doujins?”
It’s understandable for a timid and new anime fan to be completely unaware of what bittorrent is and what fansubs are… in 2007. In the year 2017, things like those should be common knowledge by now. I guess people still think YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and MAL are the only things to be found on the internet, and thinks streaming sites like KissAnime or GoGoAnime translates their anime. Which is kind of sad because fansubbers contributed to anime going mainstream and popular in the West. And before I end up ranting about fansubbing dying, I’m going to teach you some basics on how to improve your anime experience.
Sorry for the delay again. The CD takes time to arrive at our patron’s doorstep, and we’re talking about a few days to even weeks. Or it depends if you’re a Prime member, or something. Anyway, I’m still pondering why (((rippers))) who gets ad revenue for hosting (stolen) music rips but still can’t afford to buy their own CDs. I guess 25 bucks is too expensive for them. But what do I know? And if they wanna earn more ad money, they should consider becoming our supporter, so we can continue providing content apart from music rips, yeah?
This is just a minor update post because silly things happened and I want everyone to know what’s going on.
Lazy Lily Fansubs will never abandon Sakura Trick! I mean, you guys were nice enough to send us copies of the manga and placed your confidence in our capability to provide translations, so it’d be a damn shame and disrespectful if we jumped ship. And Sakura Trick is almost ending, goddammit! We’re going to finish this. No matter the cost… Literally speaking. Now then… Yay for a new ST chapter!

The “no-TL drought” has plagued this group for years now and I just hope we’ll get one after this summer heat is over. But I won’t ignore the fact Aikatsu! is very niche compared to her popular sisters like Idolmaster, PreCure and Normi—Love Live, and it also attributed to this drought we’re experiencing. Sucks Aikatsu! isn’t popular outside Japan.
And this begs the question: How do I get someone to join this small group and stay with us for at least a year? I’ve tried any option I could think of and they didn’t work. Am I going to end up hiring translators to do the stuff I want? If that’s the case, I think I’m willing to negotiate a deal to any translator interested.
Though, I’d rather prefer a translator who translates for fun, instead of translating for money. And besides, the donations Lazy Lily gets will go the books, CDs, and sometimes fees for other things. Additionally, I’m working as a part time writer to get some extra dosh, so maybe I can afford compensating some… Though I’m saving some of it for my Japan trip next February and personally enter an Aikatsu!-only Event to buy some rare book some rare books.

And here is volume 3!
The third entry of Star Light Jazz Trio’s rather great Jazzkatsu! series containing Jazz… Jazz-ified(?) tracks of Kagayaki no Étude, Summer Magic, Hello New World, LOVE GAME and Blooming Blooming. Having owned and shared the other two volumes, these tracks are very relaxing and I often play Jazzkatsu! before going to sleep. Yes, these tunes are soothing/relaxing by bedside, to me at least. And now with volume 3, each night is something to look forward to apart from the act of going to sleep. Am I making sense here?
