La Peregrinación Sagrada

Yes, it’s happening. The great holy pilgrimage through which one is changed forevermore. I’m going to Japan!!

A few updates about what’s going on at the moment:
– I’m swamped with assignment deadlines as the end of semester is nigh
– Exams for me start in around 2 weeks
– I jet off to Japan 2 days after my exams are over

As such, I have no intention of starting the translation of High School DxD Volume 23, even if I do get source material. I won’t be starting further translation of Shinmai Maou no Keiyakusha either, I don’t have enough time to make decent progress of Chapter 4. I’ve already started a bit of Seikoku no Ryuu Kishi Volume 7 Chapter 2, and since it isn’t too long, it will probably be done before I head off.

I’ll be spending just over three weeks in Japan, broken down as approximately one week in Hokkaido, one week in Tokyo, and the other week in Osaka and Kyoto (Kansai region), as well as Hiroshima. Unfortunately, it seems like a bit of a low season for conventions and festivals, though the Gion Matsuri does seem to go on for all of July. I’ve got most of my trip planned out generally, but haven’t gotten down to a full day-by-day itinerary yet, so if you’ve got any suggestions for me, let me know in the comments below. Shoutout to Samat and /u/Venom_is_an_ace for giving me some great ideas! 

About zxzxzx

I’m a uni student who likes computers, anime, games, tennis and photography among other things. I often read LNs, manga or watch anime in my spare time if I’m not translating something. I’m also an IT technician, so I deal with a lot of corporate IT issues and general troubleshooting of PCs, networks, software, etc. I often also have delusions of grandeur as I dream of marvelous ways to assassinate every member of the Chinese and North Korean governments, and all other tyrants against freedom.

    Well Have a Safe and Fun Trip I’ll be Sad waiting for your Return to Translations in between School and Free Time but Enjoy it while you can and Don’t forget to Eat Lots of Melon Pan for me while you are there. I Make it myself @ home from a source of 3 Different Recipes I found for it online but don’t think it even comes close to the Taste of a Fresh Baked One. Normally it’s made with Lemon/Orange Zest to give it the flavor but I add a touch of Honeydew Melon Extract hint’s the Name. Bye.

    Ps when do you plan of coming back. not an specific date just a Ballpark month.

      Thanks, but not really. I don’t want to skip anything, but Shinmai can sometimes be really tedious because of how wordy it gets which is why I dislike doing it consecutively.

    Awesome have fun in japan! Just for the record are you abandoning the translation oh shinmai maou to keiyakusha (testament) or is it just a pause?

    Good luck on your trip, hope you have a lot of fun.

     

    We will patiently wait for translations to resume when you come back. 🙂 I guess one good thing will be that the chinese DxD source will hopefully be far enough ahead that when you start after you come back that you won’t run out of source material.

    You have a digital camera? If not get one or borrow 1 from a family member or friend and not a cheap one. You gotta take pictures of Mount Fuji, the imperial palace, any of the famous castles and shrines. It would be cool if you posted those on this site, but they don’t have to include you in them, of course you could always do something funny where their are a whole bunch of people in the picture and you are also in it somewhere then check to see if anybody can find you, but if you don’t want us to know what you look like or anything you could be looking away from the camera or have your back to the camera or something. These are just some ideas. Good luck with the exams, mine were finished in the 2nd week of may. Enjoy the trip, have fun, god wish I could go to Japan.
