The translation “Seijō no Ran (青条の蘭)”-#10.

   As I wrote before, my real life style very changed since the beginning of this year. Now I have gotten used to this, but it makes my translation progress more slowly though I continue. Please be patient.

   I’ve posted the chapter 6, “Seijō no Ran (青条の蘭)” after a long long interval.

Yamada Akihiro’s Twelve Kingdoms Calendar 2015.

Go ha-ha.
Go ha-ha.
   Hey guys! There are less than two months left this year. It’s getting colder in my town.
   By the way, Shinchōsha released Yamada Akihiro’s Twelve Kingdoms Calendar 2015, which is available at stores in Japan only but you can buy it from despite your address. I don’t care that you buy it or not (^o^). So, jump to the page from the right image. It’s not very expensive, ¥1,950. I think it is a kind of book, so its shipping rates is less than ¥1,000 or so.
   The calendar is made of seven sheets.

  • Mar & Apr : From “Kasho no Yume (華胥の幽夢)”

The translation of “Hyōhaku (漂舶)”, Third Edition.

   I released the translation of “Hyōhaku (漂舶)”, Third Edition. This time, Delonix helped me so much again. We worked together from December 1 to January 27 about the third edition.

   From January 27 to today, I added a lot of explanations to the notes and removed all kanji characters from the Third Edition of Hyōhaku translation. I am very glad if the explanations on the notes will help you.

   I really appreciate Delonix’s help. We completed our mission. If the result makes you happy, which will make us happy. (^^)

   In addition, Delonix has a site on Flickr, and you can see beautiful flowers on it.
