Let's clear up a few things about word choice.
1. Sayoko's あのの (anono). This is her "um ummm" stuttering thing. The mangaka calls it her "catchphrase" so its translation has to be fixed.
2. 生放送 (namahousou), from the title. It literally means "live broadcasting." Do we keep it as that, or make it "livestreaming"?
3. わこつー (wakotsu~) . This a community greeting for broadcasting/livestreaming. We can either leave it as is or we'll have to find a fixed phrase in English and always translate it to that

1. How are you saying we fix it? Leave it as is and TL note it?
2. I like the way live broadcasting sounds more as a title but that's just me.
3. Leave it. It's used WAY too much to replace it with some goofy english word. There's even a chapter where they have an entire scene explaining what it means when some of the characters didn't understand it. Plus it's a joke that the sensei likes to say it all the time in the wrong situations.

Either keep it as is with TL notes or "um ummm"/"ummm"
>Do we keep it as that, or make it "livestreaming"?
I suggest livestreaming, because that's (also) what they're doing and that's what the English reader will be more familiar with.
>わこつー
> We can either leave it as is or …
In chapter 5 page 63, first panel, Kokoro explains to Sayoko what 「わこつー」 means. I decided to go with "Good streaming~" with the meaning being "looking forward to a good stream" (Open for changes) or we could do as >>46082 says by leaving it as is and just explaining what "wakotsu~" means.

Summoning other translators: Right side, 4th koma. I couldn't make sense of kokoro's line so I asked a Japanese friend. They told me
1. 妬く=嫉妬する
2. だって=も (in this case)
Maybe I should've already know #2 but I didn't, I thought it was は or が
So I think in English it would be
>I can't help but be jealous, though.
Meaning she's jealous of suzune's ability to win people over with her natural cuteness, a quality which kokoro presumably lacks. Can anyone confirm or correct?

 No.46259

>>46256
I think its more along the lines of "I too am always jealous (presumably of Matsuri and Sayoko)".

 No.46260

kokoro is trying to make suzu feel better. she's saying that even she gets jealous all the time so it's not something to worry about.

だって is like referring to herself or her own actions saying "even I do this".

she's being a smart ass saying she agrees that kokoro is always getting jealous by saying that what kokoro said is persuading

 No.46266

>>46262
I'll probably understand it more if I had read through that chapter, but based on that page alone and the knowledge of other chapter, I'd say its either because;
1: She says it in a convincing way,
2: Because Kokoro is always feeling left out of the Matsuri x Sayoko circle. (Which she is not)

 No.46267

>>46261
I think that meaning of だって mostly applies when it opens a sentence, such as 「だったいやだ」. I'm not trying to be condescending, it's just my friend is from Japan so I'm believing them when they say that in this sentence,「ボクだって」=「ボクも」 but with a bratty spin to it
>>46263
>>46266
Okay, I see what you're saying. Would it be dishonest to change matsuri's line since "That's persuasive (coming from you" sounds retarded in english? I can't think of a variation of that phrase which both sounds like something someone would say and also gets the meaning across

Done with Vol. 1 translations, I think we should focus on proofreading a little more now. Though, those who don't have confidence in their Japanese/English can go on translating as usual.
Also, since there're 2 volumes, I think the Mega folder (and the spreadsheet) needs to be formatted a bit better. Possibly include two folders/sections for "Volume 1" and "Volume 2". Also also, while we're at it, we should probably change the Raws folder names from "Chapter" to "Volume".

It seems that the colored pages were not included in the chapter 1 translations, hence couldn't be proofread. Though, we hadn't decided on what to do with those pages by then, I guess. Good thing we found out about it here. Please upload the colored pages translation file to be proofread as well.

I really don't want anything we do associated with that cesspit. It'd be actively contributing to its near-monopoly of imageboards and the thread would of course be under the jurisdiction of the people I despise, giving them authority over us again for no gain. If anywhere we could post it on nen or bun or something, or maybe even smug or that animu place because they both have translation projects ongoing.

Anyway, starting chapter 3 redraw tomorrow. I'm thinking I might try to create an image bank of sorts for the gradient patterns. I notice they tend to be used a lot so maybe we could have image-sized tile versions of them and use them as a bottom layer and erase the parts to replace. Could be worth the initial investment if they get re-used a lot.

1, 3 4, 5(The ones around Nyoro, not the ones near the corner), 7, 8, 10, 13, and 20 are speech text, so they'd need redrawing. Not too sure about 8 though.

 No.47078

Just to be clear, it has been decided that SFX will not be translated? So, nothing but speech will be translated? Whether they be inside a text bubble or not.

File:redraw.png (1.21 MB,1124x1600)

sounds good, it wouldnt hurt to have things set in stone

i went and underlined everything in there that i would redraw. how ive been deciding on what to redraw is

Redraw:
-all spoken words
-written words that arent signs

Leave Alone
-onomatopoeia EXCEPT when its something spoken like あのあのあの, わわわ in number 13 or はーー in number 4. Stuff like that i redraw so it can be typeset in english, since its spoken and has a direct english equivalent
-billboards, signs, basically written words in the background

 No.47080

You guys are telling me to redraw words and not onomatopoeia SFX or whatever, but I don't understand Japanese…

oh i just noticed ううう by 8, i thought it was referencing メコ. hmm im not sure about that one, its spoken but i might leave it unless theres a good english equivalent. uuuu just doesnt seem the same in english

>all spoken words

So basically, if it is a form of communication (written, spoken, sign language, etc) by the character (s), it will be translated/redrawn?
>>47080
>Red lines mean redraw?
Yes.

 No.47083

>>47080
yeah, red lines mean redraw. it might be helpful to learn katakana, since most sfx are written in it. play this for a bit https://www.csus.edu/indiv/s/sheaa/projects/genki/katakana-timer.html and the hirigana one, theyre easy enough to learn. youll also be able to recognize the occasional word written in it like yoroshiku in 20

Looks great. Solid, I like the translation, the fonts, the redraws are good, and I'm surprised the screen on page 23 was translated.
Though there's an odd thing happening and I want to know if it's something on my end. On a lot of pages when I'm zoomed out, I see the outline of cleaned text. But when I'm zoomed in, I don't. Is this happening to anyone else?
Another small thing is on page 22's bottom right, where the memo reads memo in plain Japanese and then the same below it but English. How about removing the runes?
