Romantic Rail GetawayWeiding Shijian Bu – Tears of Themis

An interesting short event that deals with real world issues. First part is Lu Jinghe and Xia Yan, with Zuo Ran and Mo Yi coming at the end of April.

Tears of Themis – A Love Poem to Skadi Event

Posted on Updated on

Weiding Shijian Bu – Tears of Themis

Starting to realize that Mihoyo really loves tragic love stories, which is what this event was about too. There was some unique gameplay involving exploring an abandoned mansion, but none of the text was repeatable there and they summarize the whole story at the end so only the main story is translated. It’s still understandable IMO, but just keep in mind that there was some actual legwork involved LOL.

The rest of the event is just some cute, fluffy run-ins with the guys and enjoying a holiday with them on this island. Happy belated Valentines and Lunar New Year!

This is another Chinese mobile game that I’m casually playing and the theme song was so catchy and sweet that I felt compelled to translate it.

Tears of Themis – Symphony of the Night Event

I legit teared up at the ending of this event and was not expecting them to go that hard on the themes. The monologue got me like no tomorrow. Anyway, plugging this here to share.

TL Commissions Open

Posted on

Hello hello! As promised, I’ve opened commissions again now that we’re into November (although I wanted to finish something else up first and so I’m actually a day late into November, oops).

At any rate, feel free to comment on this post or the official commission page! Please make sure you’re using a valid email address when commenting, so I can contact you. Don’t worry, no one else will be able to see your email except for me. I don’t have a limit in mind, but it’s my custom to only have 5 pending requests at any given time.

Tears of Themis – Lost Gold Event

Posted on Updated on

Weiding Shijian Bu – Tears of Themis

There was a month long event and, because nothing was said about whether or not the stories would be preserved, I was in a translation marathon hell for the entirety of October LOL. My friend and I managed to finish before the end of the month though, so don’t mind me as I plug the translated event story. This was an enjoyable case and we get to see the men interact more with each other (they also do this in Chapter 5, but we’re not there yet).

Tears of Themis – Chapter 3

Posted on

Weiding Shijian Bu – Tears of Themis

Hello, another update about how the entirety of Chapter 3 has been translated. Check it out if you’re interested in this Chinese mobile otome game! The cases honestly just get more and more interesting after Chapter 2 and this is another one of my favorites. Zuo Ran grabs the spotlight here.

Tears of Themis – Chapter 2

Posted on Updated on

Weiding Shijian Bu – Tears of Themis

Hello everyone, just updating that the site I’m collaborating on has completed translations for Chapter 2. Check it out if you’re interested in a Chinese mobile otome game! Like I mentioned in the last post for this game, Chapter 2 introduces Lu Jinghe, the CEO heir, and my psychiatrist bias, Mo Yi. Chapter 2 is my favorite case out of all of them so far, because it deals with some heavy themes.

Tears of Themis – Chapter 1

Weiding Shijian Bu – Tears of Themis

Hello everyone, just updating that the site I’m collaborating on has completed translations for Chapter 1. Check it out if you’re interested in a Chinese mobile game! The cases only get more interesting after this and, in Chapter 2, we’re going to get introduced to my favorite characters, hehe, Mo Yi the psychiatrist and Lu Jinghe the CEO.

Celebrating 9th Anniversary!

EDIT: The random number generator spat out 322, so waterinegirl with 314 is our lucky winner! Thank you to everyone who participated or just commented <3!

Hello hello! Can you believe we’ve gone around the sun together again? First, I just wanted to thank all the old and new visitors to my blog for their support and interest. I’m happy if anyone manages to find enjoyment here at my blog, especially given this year we’re going through. Secondly, and most importantly, I hope you and your families are all managing to stay safe!

I seriously don’t know what to say in these posts, so I dug up my old anniversary post to see what was going on and… well, it looks like I finished another LN translation (Miss Appraiser) and then slotted in another one that I haven’t started (Deep Clouds). I, uh, did not manage to finish my WIP but I’m much more confident in my writing? LOL. Between then and now, I also became literate in Chinese and then immediately got sucked into Chinese otome mobage hell, which explains why I didn’t make any progress on any JP otome games (cough Piofiore cough).

But this blog is still here and plodding along to provide you guys with otome content from various places. I’m running out of things to say, so I’m just going to end this by thanking you all for your support again and I hope this blog remains a place for people to get away from their current troubles and indulge in fictional romantic stories.

PS. I’ll be hosting a giveaway this time too, although it’ll just be a drama CD translation.

PRIZES

  1. ONE drama CD translation.

  • Giveaway will start at 00:00 PDT 18 August 2020 and end at 23:59 PDT 25 August 2020.

  • I’ll be picking the winner with a random number generator!
  • I’ll edit in the winner and close comments for this post when the contest is over.

TL Commissions Opening Feb 7

Posted on Updated on

Hello everyone! I had a nice lovely break, made some good progress on other projects, and have cleared up my schedule enough to feel like I can take on another batch of commissions. So, this post is being sent out as a notification to all those subscribed that I’ll be opening 5 slots for commission on February 7, 2020 (PST). I’ll consider doing more after that, but I’m limiting it to this amount at first because I feel awful for making people wait too long.

Please don’t comment to this post with your commission request. I’ll only look into the ones I receive on February 7 (PST) so that everyone gets a chance to see that I’m opening commissions, and has time to consider and respond on February 7 (PST). Thank you for your understanding!

For information about my rates, I have a page that’s listed on my top bar. But here’s another link too just in case.

Celebrating 8th Anniversary!

Posted on Updated on

EDIT: The winning numbers are 387 and 134. leohikarusora was closest to the first one with 379 and waterinegirl with 143. Thank you to everyone who participated and I loved seeing all the stories people have been reading. Funnily enough, or maybe not since we’re all here on an otome blog, I’ve actually seen quite a few of those titles!

Ha ha! This time I’ve scheduled this post ahead of time so I don’t forget it like I did last year (and had to do an embarrassing backdate). I never know what to say in these things, but here’s a HUGE thank you to everyone who has supported my blog up until now and a WARM WELCOME to all the newcomers that joined this year! I’ve always done what I do on this blog for myself, but it’s nice to connect with other people who share the same interests!

Looking back over the year, and comparing this post to my last anniversary post, it looks like I finally finished my Light Beyond translation (and then immediately started up another LN translation LOL). I’ve also opened up commissions and the interest in people for that exceeded my expectations a thousand times, so thank you all so much (๑→‿←๑).

Regarding the future of this blog, I still plan on continuing with it and heading wherever my interests take me (as long as it’s otome-related)! I’m trying hard to make my way back to otome games and am in the middle of endless Pio Fiore, which… just got localized. AKSYS STOP TARGETING ME LIKE THIS. Honest to gods, every single game I want to play they nab for localization. And you’d think I’d be like “Okay, I won’t blog about it then…” but I blog about these games for my own memory and practice!!

The main reason for my slow playing speed is because I’ve got other personal projects going on. It’s my goal to finish writing my WIP novel by the end of next year, so I’ve been stretching my time between that, this blog, and my full-time job. I also finished my part in a game project that I was working on with some friends, so woohoo!

Anyway, thanks again to everyone who has left a comment on this blog, dropped by for a view, or are just a long-standing lurker. I hope next year brings more games onto this blog LOL. Incidentally, I’ll be hosting a giveaway this year since I’m much more prepared.

(Okay, I think I’ve got the music bug out of my hands. This one and the summer one are two of my absolute favorite songs :’) so I just wanted to share them and practice song lyric translations. My other favorite song is a Touhou one that I’m not even going to attempt because I already saw a godly translation for it.)
