Hey, guys. As you probably already know, I translate light novels in my free time (but not because I l-like you or anything! Baka!) This post exists to let you know that I recently finished translating Oregairu volume 3! You can read it here.
Since the anime adapted the entirety of volume 3 in one episode, there’s a lot of content in this volume that will be fresh to anime-only fans. I think it’s worth a read even if you don’t normally read light novels.
I’ve already said what I feel about translating Oregairu in another post, so I’ll just let the contents of this volume speak for itself. Although this volume took me longer to complete than volume 2, I think it’s a more polished translation overall. I hope you find it a pleasure to read.
I’m also translating the bonus Drama CD that came with this volume. When that’s finished, I’ll upload the subbed version onto Youtube and Mediafire. The links will be posted to this blog.
Now may also be a good time to mention that I recently wrote an Oregairu fanfiction, The writing is maturer than the light novels, but I think older fans may find it interesting, especially for the themes it tackles. The topic of “literary fanfiction” is something I would like to discuss in more depth in a later post.
So yeah, prepare yourselves for more Oregairu-related posts in future!
Most of that good stuff will come after Christmas, though, since I am participating in the 12 Days of Anime Christmas. Simply put, there will be a blog post every day in the twelve days leading up to Christmas. I heartily recommend any anime blogger to participate!
As for what I will be blogging about, I decided to stray off the beaten track and try something a bit different. I will be covering the Christmas episode from a different anime each day. I haven’t finalised the list of shows I will be covering, so feel free to let me know about your absolute favourites. (OVAs and movies are good too.) Who knows? I might end up writing about it.
That’s about it for the blog/writing updates for now. Hope you have a good holidays!
