My noggin is no longer joggin’

Contrary to popular belief, I, SHiN, is not, well, popular amongst the fan translation community. Now why is that? There are many reasons like I don’t hang out in IRC anymore, I don’t browse /a/ anymore, I don’t post in forums anymore, and since I don’t do fansubs anymore, my peers doesn’t know I exist. The fix is actually easy: Interact with the community again. Unfortunately I barely have free time to check a ton of places at once, and sometimes my brain fries because of information overload. Without community activity (with a dab of notoriety), it’s hard to reach out for help. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve made a lot of friends in the past 10 years and helped me a lot with my projects. Sadly, everything’s not forever and my friends either moved on to do something with their time or they retired.

My question is, how do I find more people to help me out with Sakura Trick and Aikatsu! yuri doujinshi translations? And what do you think of the idea we pay a translator a fee for translating our stuff?

What I’m doing currently is to put help wanted ads in every releases we produce to catch the interests of a passing translator. The problem of this is we currently don’t have a translator to make new translations and slip in our help wanted ads. Basically no translation to share = less likely for people to know we’re out there looking for help.

Pay for translations? I’m okay with that, but… Call me a Negative Nelly, but it’s hard to find someone who is willing to work for a fee and at the same time has genuine interests in translating anime. A few years ago I hired a translator to TLC an anime episode and he asked 30 bucks for the fee. He certainly did his job, but the translations were lifeless and I ended up redoing the episode with a more lively script.

I really don’t know what to do at the moment, so I’m asking you guys for some advice, or point me in the right direction.

Sakura Trick Volume 6 – Chapter 05 is OUT!!!

The Great Wall of Mikan is crumbling. Slowly but surely.

So before we get to the actual release post, I would like to announce that this is the last chapter you’ll read for a while. Our translator Lust Demon has officially left the group, and without his help, Sakura Trick manga is on hold until we find a replacement translator. And seeing how unlucky I am in getting donations and manpower, expect this is going to be a long wait. For the Aikatsu! side of things, we’ll continue to provide a doujin/chapter per month with me, SHiN, doing the initial translations and AkazaAkane from Bakkin Translations will TLC.

To the actual release post!




[News] Back to your regularly scheduled programming

You know, I’m really not good at planning because things always, well, not end up going as planned. Or I’m just way too unlucky?

We, uh, planned to finish Sakura Trick volume 6, but the TL for the series has unofficially left the group. We have volume 6, chapter 5 almost ready, but without the TL’s approval and addressing a couple of issues, it will take a while for us to share it and any future translations. Basically we’re back to our usual pace and it sucks. We were supposed to move forward, dammit! ;_;

So what’s next? We’re going to find another TL if ever our current TL Lust Demon actually flown the coop, and that’s going to be difficult.

Currently we’re in doujin hoarding mode, but, yeah, as always, I’m too poor to buy these books and any donation is greatly appreciated.

Sakura Trick Volume 6 – Chapter 04 is OUT!!!

Pajama party but with blankets… Blanket party?

Let’s start March with some Sakura Trick! Quite honestly, we like this pace to keep discussions moving, but honestly, the only topics people want to talk about is when will Kaede confess her feelings to our resident tomboy Yuzu. It’s true. :V




Sakura Trick Volume 6 – Chapter 03 is OUT!!!

“Might” is the keyword here.

It’s another Sakura Trick chapter for you, dear readers! See? Lazy Lily Fansubs isn’t really an Aikatsu! fangirl website! W-We love Sakura Trick, too!




Sakura Trick Volume 6 – Chapter 02 is OUT!!!

It’s not Aikatsu! that’s getting the Valentine treatment!

Oh and before you get all hyped that we’re faster than usual, well, hold yer horses!

One of us are getting exhausted, so we’re gonna dial back a few notches and take a breather and not stress ourselves out. However, that’s just part of the problem. You see, we’re going to fansub the Aikatsu Stars! movie and the OG Aikatsu! special episode (potentially) next month. What that means is we’re going to divert our already scarce resources to fansubbing and it will temporarily affect our scanlation side of things. It’ll suck for everyone who are eager to read the next Sakura Trick chapters, but please understand that we’re only a handful of people… and Aoi is in the special episode. Things will be back to normal after we’re done with the anime fansubbing. This is assuming everything goes well according as planned.

Now then!




Sakura Trick Volume 6 – Chapter 01 is OUT!!!

Oh hey! You know what are the benefits of owning your own scans? Freedom and quality control, baby!

…some people won’t notice the quality though because they read their Sakura Trick from third party manga readers using downscaled and ugly-looking scans. It hurts my heart (and Aoi’s) to see our hard work getting maimed by these readers. And they don’t even link the scanlator’s website.

Oh well.




Sakura Trick – Special Comic 03 – Kaede and Yuzu is OUT!!!

Another chapter translation? BAM!

Aside from the volumes we skipped because the anime covered it, we’re (I think) finally translated everything that was released before volume 6. And this also means I no longer have an excuse to be lazy and finally scan volume 6!




Sakura Trick – Special Comic 02 – Kotone and Shizuku is OUT!!!

And here’s chapter 2!

Nothing much to say here other than we’re almost done translating all specials prior to volume 6.




Sakura Trick – Special Comic 01 – Haruka and Yuu is OUT!!!

Uh, we got a few translated chapters lying around, so, uh, why not?

…though I consider suggesting everyone to jump back to the wormhole and return to the universe you came from because the consequences will be dire.

I foresee two possibilities. One, you’ll come face to face with yourself from this universe and they would put them into shock and they’d simply pass out. Or two, the encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that’s a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy.

Yeah, this is heavy and we can’t risk that.

*ahem*
