N: "Please stop teasing me already!"
T: "I would if you sign this"
N: "Okay, shit, whatever!"

He then signed a piece of paper with his super buffed hand because this past year in college he has been doing one million push up everyday.

"You got guts, kid."

TSP, you guys are gods at localization/keeping a natural flow to your sentences without making them clunky. How do you guys do it? If you don't mind, I would like to hear some tips since I'm currently translating Obaa-chan to Game. T_T

 

I did a quick translation for the Mano chapter on 4chan but it was super shite compared to yours. Granted it was speed translation but kudos to you guys for being so good.

 

Practice. Cheesy, but true. After that, if you're really serious, you can look up books on how to improve your creative writing skills, or how to write dialog for movies. That kind of writing is what you need. Lastly, you have to practice thinking outside of the box. You KNOW that the character said this, but what do they really mean? WHY are they saying it? How is the author using this line to convey some sort of message, to contribute to the panel, the scene, the chapter? 

 

And of course, you have to never be satisfied with the way you currently are. We basically can't even look at our releases maybe a few days after because we always spot flaws in them and it makes us want to kill ourselves. 

 

Good luck, Ranger.

It's clear that the whole manga is about growth from what a male kid  this age cares, the social status within the group, looking cool, smart and composed and trying coffee as a sign of maturity, to the young boy that consideres a victory to boldly hold hans with the girl he likes and talk openly  about kisses with her.

Nishikata can end it when he realizes the true win it's not to tease her back and make her blush with a prank, but to have the courage to be honest with his feeling (know what they are) and do what he really wants. 

That is, hold hands, spend quality time together, kiss her, invite her to festivals, valentine-white day that is not obligation, you know the rest.

Obviously in adulthood there is no need to ''shake the foundations'' of your partner because it's  already settled. What you do are surprises, showing affection and of course things like ''the looser has to bang vigorously the other'' are allowed under mutual accordance.

 

I considered this post necessary  although it's painfully evident a certain someone is making a ruckus to spam his scanlations services.

I explained it 'cause it's worth to discuss.

Thanks! I'd rather be called a "sneaky bastard" than a "god damn liar" any day of the week. But that's neither here nor there. What I am doing, just like you, is expressing my opinions, and it is my opinion that Nishikata is going to have a miserable life. If people are childish enough to get pissed off just by reading my opinions, well, that's their problem, not mine. If they don't like what I say, they are not obligated to read what I write.

 

Sure, Nishikata's going to be married to the cutest girl in town (tricked into it, of course) and, sure, he'll have a cute daughter (though how she was conceived will forever be a mystery as he'll never get to actually have sex with Takagi-san because all she wants to do is tease him), but the relentless teasing will never stop and he will forever feel like a loser because, let's face it, he will never win against Takagi-san. And who wants to feel like a loser for their whole life? Nishikata certainly doesn't like losing to Takagi-san now, and that's not likely to change, is it?

You've... never had a good friend whom you could tease and get teased by? Geez, I've already seen in some of your comments that your nickname is a lie, but c'mon.

You do realize first and foremost they are friends right? They walk to school together, they are together in school, and they also hang out together outside of school. The teasing aspect is just part of their relationship and Nishikata gladly enters into those games with Takagi. The reason he loses is because he wants to look cool in front of her but is actually shy and she takes advantage of it. Takagi knows she can make him flustered by implying love/attraction/confession, and he it always works because he likes her. It's a girl that knows the boy likes her (even he isn't all that self aware yet) and she just enjoys playing with him because there really isn't any need to be more serious than the friendship they have now.

 

Basically the only reason any of this happens is because they like each other.

I love canon crossovers.

Thank you for the glorious updates!

Since this is just getting more and more painful to watch with every new chapter, with Takagi-san relentlessly crushing any and all hope of happiness that should lie in store for Nishikata, what I'd like to see happen is something similar to what occured between Kusuda-kun and Kei-chan in Hatsukoi Limited. (don't read the spoiler if you don't want to know)

I was hoping that some other chick would take a liking to Nishikata and give Takagi-san some competition for his affections, but that's probably never going to happen.

Takagi neither nags nor criticizes Nishikata or his hobbies.  There is almost no malice, and with every tease the agency to participate remains with Nishikata; he is never really forced into joining.  She doesn't walk up to him and make fun of his clothes for instance, but will instead ask him a simple question which he will then respond to, and the banter will go from there.  For the myriad of contests, he is always allowed the chance to walk away, but never does because he probably enjoys the attention, and she's more than happy to give it to him.

 

Kids are bad at social norms anyway because they're still learning how to be a person out in the world, so expecting them to either act mature at the age of 10/11 or assuming that they won't change as they grow up is foolishness.

in other words you are saying something you know is going to piss people off so you can drum up som controversy and get people to click on your link... you sneaky bastard

Mano-chan the classmate is a oneshot, not part of this manga.

 

If it was a oneshot, it would have been announced, and it wasn't. There have been times when Takagi and a Yamamoto oneshot were published together, and when that happened, they were clearly marked and separated, but these weren't. At the end of monthly double chapters, the last chapter in the set always includes the "To be continued" text. Since it appeared at the END of the Mano chapter, and not the Ice chapter, we concluded it was sort of a mini-spin-off chapter, but still meant to be a part of Takagi.

I see what you did there *smirk*

Well, they don't allow hentai on Batoto.

 

Just say it's a korean webtoon...and it's okay!

reading this chapter after that recently translated doujin gave me... all kind of feelings.

Unless it's from lezhin >_>

Man! For a second there I thought they were going to hold hands! Good thing they didn't. Holding hands should only be done after marriage!

How does she crush any hope of happiness? Her teasing oftentimes includes invitations to events like the festival or buying a swimsuit with her. She's the one who actually advances their relationship and Nishikata seems quite happy by the end of the day.

Her teasing stems from her impish personality and not from some kind of insecurity or ill will. In the future-chapter we see her teasing her own daughter, so we can assume she can't help herself but tease the people she loves, which in my opinion is quite cute. Nishikata makes it pretty easy anyway with his ego and naivite.

In the end she is the Teasing Master but she isn't vicious or anything like that.

Plot twist the choco was from another girl and takagi was trying to play it off as her own to eliminate competition for her boy/toy/boytoy
