LMS Volume 31 chapter 5 & 6

Hello everybody,

Double chapter release today!!

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

I decided to do this because the last ATL chapter was extremely long and these two LMS are very short. I also know felt like it would be better to leave it on chapter 6 rather than chapter 5.

On that note, I decided to give some insight on my translating since I am talking about chapter length. While translating, I use a program to split the chapter into sentences/segments. Thus I calculate chapter length by number of segments rather than number of words/characters.

Average number of segments per chapter:

ATL: 500~700

LMS: 300~500

ATL volume 12 chapter 8: 938

LMS volume 31 chapter 5: 298

LMS volume 31 chapter 6: 252

So why do I take a day to translate both stories despite the different length? The writing for LMS is more difficult for me to translate and the author uses a lot of korean sayings. Meanwhile the writing in ATL is simpler for me, maybe because I am used to it after translating so many volumes from this author. Thus both stories take me approximately one day to finish.

    thanks a lot ! for the release and the explanation about the translation process !

    but i have a hard time with the onomatopoeia you wrote. maybe it’s because i’m french, but I read many manga translated into american english. I do not manage to determine when a character laughs or shows himself cynical with your translation, for example.

    But otherwise I appreciate your syntax, I have a lot of pleasure to read you.
    Moreover if I understood well the author use a popular and not a classic writing style, it is maybe what makes the strength of the work and his characters.

    And as you can read it, my English is not either completed, thus thank you again for the supplied work !
