Chapter 4 finally!
Enormous thanks to the wonderful Altnya who helped provide high quality raws. No blurry pages anymore!
Sorry for the long wait. I promise to catch up before the end of the year (around 6 chapters)
As I mentioned previously, Nukoduke! moved to マンガPark: https://manga-park.com/title/52. マンガPark uses a different numbering system so the new chapters start numbering from chapter 200. Therefore, chapter 200 would originally be chapter 109. There are no missing online chapters in between.
Sorry for the super long wait. The chapter was translated a long time ago but I kept delaying the editing.
I’ve realised that I will probably never finish this series or even get past the 10th chapter if I edit the chapters the way I do. My editing mostly consists of me looking up words in English to try to find the most fitting word, sticking whole phrases into google to see if I’m using the words correctly, staring at sentences for a long time to try to work out a way to make the meaning closer to the original, or sound less dumb or awkward, or deciding which sentence sounds better. This takes me ages which is probably why I keep procrastinating. I edit and translate like that because I’ve never been good at creative writing at school and my sentences tend to sound really stiff. (I actually talk that way and my sister always tells me I sound like a robot in my emails.)
So… I’ve decided that I won’t edit thoroughly anymore. I’m not going to care if the sentences sound dumb or awkward anymore as long as the translation is correct and the sentences are grammatically correct. That’s actually how I edited the second half of chapter 7. Hopefully it’s not too bad.
TL;DR – Chapters from now on will be rougher around the edges but readable.
With that decided, fingers-crossed that releases will be quicker.
Nukoduke! chapter 108 will be coming tomorrow. I will try to get the rest out asap as well.
Edit: Sorry. Nukoduke 108 will be out on Sunday for sure. Just need to redraw one more panel.
Nukoduke has moved to マンガPark (Manga-Park – https://manga-park.com/title/52).
To read, you’ll have to buy coins or you can install the smartphone app which will let you read a number of chapters for free a day.
They’ve uploaded the chapters originally serialised in the Hana to Yume magazine so the numbering is different now (It’s following the book numbering). Chapters 105-107 will correspond to chapters 196-198. From chapter 200 onwards (since chapter 108/199 released on HanaLala Online) I will start using the new numbering and slowly re-number the past chapters. We will also be slowly working on those additional chapters.
Chapter 6 finally. It’s so hard to get back into the translating mood once you stop. This marks the end of the other world trip arc. The maidservant arc is up next.
A Nukoduke! chapter will be coming soon. The Sokuhi Shigan manga chapters will be coming after (two chapters behind now).
