Can’t really break the daily streak, can I?
Now this chapter was slightly annoying. I blame it on the author’s lack of decent writing skills.
Technically, you don’t need to mention the subject every time in Japanese as you can guess it from the context and verb forms, but the author jumps between the subjects way too often without marking it with an actual word.
I consider myself fluent enough in Japanese to understand it, still, when it comes to translating, I’m not so comfortable with it anymore. I’m no native speaker, but it ticks me off to repeatedly use “he”, escpecially when the subject changes every time.
I did my best to write a clear translation by adding the names in places I felt necessary and ask for your understanding if it sounds too weird.
Story-wise, I still can’t say that I dislike the MC, though he IS treading on a fine line to become an asshole. There also seems to be some new power-up, so I’m looking forward to the next chapter.
On other news, I finished chapter 04 of Shinmai Maou vol 2. Now only the epilogue is left before I drop it with the completion of the 2nd volume. Not sure when I will get to it, but hopefully before the year ends.
tl;dr: NEXT CHAPTER WHEN!?
