Alternative take on the chapter.

Now, I'm even more shookt like this chapter got me snatched.
I love this story, thanks for translating!

Mr. Bones wild ride keeps rolling. Nothing is as it seems, all theories are null, we're charting new territory now folks.

Well... shit.

Just finished proofing the english translation for Chapter 54 and HOLY SHIT

Chapter will probably be out tomorrow when belkrax wakes up?

Very text and info heavy chapter, gave me a headache >~<

I won't spoil anything this time for the impatient because this is something you really have to see for yourself this time.

Ahhhh, fine, if you're too impatient here's a small spoiler:

I read somewhere that he masks the pattern with powder cause he thought it was embarassing.

I'm so shookt. 

Say, is this weekly? Monthly? Are we caught up? Because I can't wait for the next chapter at all.

It runs in Afternoon, which is a monthly serial. Therefore it's either monthly or on a less frequent schedule (probably the former.) Also, i think it was mentioned that we are now caught up with the raws.

Say, is this weekly? Monthly? Are we caught up? Because I can't wait for the next chapter at all.

But we come to the problem of how eating moon dust (which in hindsight is now pretty horrifying) and moon water have driven the admirabilis insane.

So far, from what we've seen, the only times they've regained sanity were when they were brought back to the planet.

> inb4 rutile goes "You all remember the shell of that snail that ate Phos? Well... those other coloured bits..."

This is true; it's a longshot. However, we don't know what specific stimulus caused them to regain sanity (some indicators are that it was the sea water,) and we don't know what reasoning abilities they might still retain in their maddened state (Phos only gained the ability to speak to them after the snail was sane again, but the snail seemed to recall its actions and motivations while maddened.) The snail also seemed keen on liberating its kin so that remains a hanging thread as well. Making this work seems like it would require craftier planning than Phos has been demonstrated capable of, but that's what everyone else is for. ^_^;

Hmm... with regard to the dire situation on the moon:

Would you still be willing to typeset if you decided to stop translating?  I wanted to offer helping with translations to begin with or handle translations entirely, but typesetting/cleaning is too time consuming with my current schedule;;

 

Either way, thank you for bringing back so much interest to this series!

 

Im an awful typesetter if you havent noticed though. Also while i really like the idea since your translations might be better, the point was me not releasing chapters so that everyone would buy the english volumes. But its true that there is no point till they catch up so i guess ill keep translating for a good while.

 

That said, everyone, BUY THEM! Houseki is not really popular here in the west so i think anything could help.

 

Also thaaaank you for the appreciation, it pays the effort. And now that i have Fumako it might be getting better, now i only need to learn how to use a good program.

Well Phos's transformations have been based off of the Seven Treasures of Buddhism so far, but the last two vary from source to source, so it is possible.

Spoiler

Woops, I mixed up the names, thanks. I didn't know about the Seven Treasures of Buddhism one, neat!

For anyone interested, google says they are:

Vol 1 its already available in english for pre-order. Try to support the author. Once it comes out for real i might not continue translating, dunno.

 

Please don't stop! I definitely want to buy a volume, but as Youkos said, the volumes will take a long time to catch up

Please do keep translating! It'll be a while before the actual english volumes are caught up and the only reason I'm considering buying the actual release is because your chapters made me interested again. ><

Whoa i never noticed that thing about the Seven Treasures, pretty interesting.

 

 

I have a theory.

 

Spoiler

 

Yeah that one theory seems more and more probable with every chapter, as for the Phos thing, we wont be able to call him Phos if he looses his torso.

 

Wait or we will because his inclusions already moved to the rest of his body.

 

Still, so strange.
