    I'd have to go back and look at this in context, but I think it was intended to be "that had."

    • [75%] the way my old friend had shot me down, ► It should be childhood friend.

    Just to be argumentative, a childhood friend would also be an old friend... but I take your meaning, and "childhood" might work better. We'll take it under advisement :)

    But hey... Did we make it all the way to part 3 with no mistakes to speak of? :P

    So far it was always said that his childhood friend turned him down so it just felt somehow wrong to read old friend this time around.

    Seems so. None that I noticed at least. 😋

    Good catch. The source text has "BOUs," as you suspected. This one's on me--I probably had "nekkids" on ctrl-v (I sometimes do this with less common or more complicated words that come up repeatedly in a particular scene) and just got on autopilot.

    Thanks. This isn't a side of the site I know much about. @myskaros, is this something that's easy to fix?

    Yeah, Sasha pointed that out as well. I was just following the exact flow of the Japanese text and wasn't thinking about how weird it would look hanging at the beginning of this part. I think it's likely to be moved for the final ebook.

    Volume 17 - Part 5:

    • [Generic] Some of Theresa's dialogues in Myusel's POV use "broken" terms. While Myusel's dialogues/thoughts are like that, other dialogues are usually correct (I think?). Or, if all dialogues should have "broken" terms because it's Myusel hearing them, then there should probably be more "broken" technical terms in Theresa's other dialogues, too?
    • [21%] letting his manliness out................ Holy crap! ► It should be 15 periods (currently 16). 😋
    • [48%] with our reeyactor that the high-per space tunnel ► Theresa's dialogue. It should be reactor / hyperspace? (See generic issue.)
    • [52%] would be to analyze the reeyactor logs and push the ► Theresa's dialogue. It should be reactor? (See generic issue.)
