Good to know that it is clear enough to the reader without previous knowledge of karuta. I wasn't sure if people really need to google to get the idea, and in that case, I was afraid of people getting confused.
@myskaros has let me know that I'm permitted to change the location of the images at the prepub stage... so I'll be doing that from now on.
@Warnis You are totally innocent! :-D Myskaros told me that the raw translation locates the images based on page splits, so it's not your fault at all. Not to worry, I'll be putting the images where they fit best going forward. =D
I think I'm gonna drop this series after the last part for now. Maybe I'll pick it up again next time it's on catchup...
Volume 5 - Part 10:
[Generic Issue] The city's name was written as Mebrenst in previous prepubs but it's written 2 times as Mebenrest in this part.
[8%] “T-that sort of stuff is considered basic?” ► It should be That (Capitalized) for consistency.
[8%] be a black sorcerer and do stuff like that ► It should be does.
[24%] excitement. Orphen shook his head, and said softly, ► Paragraph ends with a comma, merge the dialogue from the next one?
[30%] five years ago, he was Krylancelo and not Orphen-- ► Replace duplicate dash -- with a single longer dash.
[30%] He wasn’t an “orphan”. He had a family, even ► Move the period inside the double quotes.
[32%] you crazy. More importantly--” He said to himself, ► Replace duplicate dash -- with a single longer dash.
[33%] something he called “mindsetting”. And mindsetting ► Move the period inside the double quotes.
[38%] with a white bench. He marvelled at it silently. ► It should be marveled (US spelling).
[39%] If I wanted something like this, I could probably get it. Or something close to this. ► This is a dialogue (murmur), it should be wrapped in double quotes.
[49%] a genius sorcerer with a cunning a sharp as his wit. ► It should be as sharp.
[51%] If you ask anyone has had a look at this guy who ► It should be anyone who.
[64%] Krylancelo sighed in disappointment, and continued, ► Paragraph ends with a comma, merge the dialogue from the next one?
[87%] but failed to do so. He said with a straight face, ► Paragraph ends with a comma, merge the dialogue from the next one?
[92%] “Huh What are yo—... Ah,” he breathed when he saw ► Missing punctuation.
Volume 5 - Part 11:
[Generic Issue] Again, the name changes between Taferem and Tafurem and Tefurem.

[47%] “Of course I am,” She said, allowing more mana ► It should be she (lowercase).
[64%] And at that exact moment-- ► Replace duplicate dash -- with a single longer dash.
[68%] nodded with an “Ahhh”, and continued, “Claiomh ► Move the comma inside the double quotes.
[71%] “You lost it, huh. You lost.... A vital part ► It should be 3 periods.

[84%] kicked and rolling down down on the dirt of the road. ► Duplicate down.
[85%] lightly at his fingers while he did so. Then, ► Paragraph ends with a comma, merge the dialogue from the next one?
Oh brother. This volume could be verrrry interesting. This volume marks the two-thirds point in the series, ship I'm not surprised things are heating up, so to speak. I'm noting a definite parallel between this series and Amagi Brilliant Park in that
Now this ambassador is going to make for an interesting meeting. Can't wait to see what happens. An arranged political marriage for Petralka seems like such a given, but I'm not sure the author wants to go in that direction. Now an arranged marriage for Garius would make for some interesting storytelling.
And Shinichi could send up romantically hooked up with Petralka. Probably not as the Emperor, though. Didn't the author do another story going down that path?
Sorry I haven't been around folks - we're juggling chainsaws right now with Banner updates and the final touches on the Crest omnibus edition proofs, as well as other projects and responsibilities, so it'll be a couple days before I can really be active online again. Just wanted to let you guys know what was going on. Hope you're enjoying Banner so far! Part 2 should be up tomorrow.
Edit: I think I should address this one at least though - as @shrike_al points out, our translator has done a deep dive into the Baronh linguistics to get it as good as possible. This will mean some retroactive revisions that will also apply going forward. Most notably, Jinto is in fact more properly Jint; I suppose "Jinto" was a concession to Japanese phonology in the first place (there isn't really a hard-T sound that's proper in Japanese, so the next closest thing is the "to" sound), one that was improperly ported over into the English language discourse around this series. I can't comment on that much, as my training in linguistics, Japanese, and Baronh is fairly nominal, but if you have any specific questions I'm sure our translator can address those... though that'll likely wait until after we've beat the deadline for Omnibus final revisions.
Just finished this volume.
Damn that was good
Suddenly realising that yurika part time job was yet again tainted was fantastic
Now i dont mind mind extra stories because i enjoy the cast a lot but if you do volumes of side stories , please pick up the pace for the releases. The stories are already written, right ?
Then just put them in.Just dont make me wait too much for the rest of the main story
And another volume's done. But yeah, I'm really liking this series so far.
Volume 2 - Part 6:
[4%] With his outfit andarmor, the man inside seems ► It should be and armor (add space).
[8%] you will make the wise decision, Wiltian solider.” ► It should be soldier.
[10%] What the hell... is that power?Is he even human?! ► Add a space after the question mark.
[13%] you? And you want to bring that about again!?” ► This series uses ?! usually.
[18%] kicked as if he was a nothing but a ball, and ► Remove the first/duplicate a.
[37%] “ Uh... ugh...” ► The starting double quote alone is in italic format.
[44%] no way to prevent it from attack. But, the fact ► It should be being attacked.
[51%] “Augh!?” ► This series uses ?! usually.
[52%] mass of flames, the actual amount was miniscule. ► It should be minuscule.
[99%] let me say one again, thank you all very much! ► It should be once.
I noticed we've reached Part 5, but Act 2 has only just begun. I guess we'll be expecting another big battle this volume?
That scene with Felicia was really nice, but I can't help but hope she'll get her turn too.
Anyone guessing that Steinporr will die at the hands of the Flame clan?
@jon-mitchell if they can transfer to another world they must have something that can observe/detect its existence. probably with something that the world itself emit. which is different from directly entering it (as opposed to observe it). I think its like what happen in Hawking radiation, while nothing can escape the black-hole the "think" surrounding it can react and affect its inside without ever entering it, and you can observe this effect as some-kind of radiation.
and the "world-lock" I think its like what happen in Quantum superposition, once you observe it, it would forever in that state.
though yeah I would think its simpler by using human immune-system as an example. the world would gain immunity once there is foreign being enter it. which render the "way" to enter or exits the world become useless as the world already aware of its existence.
Veight is really working Lacy and Kite hard, which makes me appreciate again how lucky it was that Veight managed to recruit them. Not so much in the sense of "winning them over to his side", but more of "they happened to be in the right place and the right time and also not directly in Veight's path".
Like, I'm wondering how things would have turned out if Veight had managed to win over the "fake" Heroes too, instead of killing them.
And then I thought about it a bit more, and I also start appreciating that one of Veight's strengths is in utilizing what he has at hand in the present circumstances, rather than engaging in "what if" speculation. Yes, he could have had more options if he had "Ranhart" at his side, but he doesn't, so he uses what he does have very effectively.
(I wonder if we'll see Gomoviroa turn up in Rolmund eventually. Of everyone back in Meraldia, she's the one most likely to be able to stop by quickly.)
I don't actually think it's the Dark Prince, but only because I can't see Clena being docilely kidnapped by the Dark Prince without fighting back hard, and in every interaction we've seen, the Dark Prince is no match for Clena. Even if the Dark Prince used minions like the Giant, the moment Clena sees the Dark Prince, she's just going to pop him in the nose and then stomp off.
But I'm also not confident, because apart from that, the Dark Prince is absolutely the sort of person to try kidnapping people.
Personally I think it's probably going to be a case where what started as a straightforward plot that may or may not involve kidnapping is now a huge pile-up of schemes of varying levels of planning, because every character has their own obsessions, and they tend not to consider that other people don't share those obsessions.
@jon-mitchell said in Infinite Stratos Vol. 10 Discussion:
the harem keeps getting bigger, and Itchika isn't even getting to first base? c'mon man, kiss a girl (or three)
I assumed Ichika and Houki had kissed, but apparently, I was mistaken.
