How will you be thankful for the Softness™ this year?
First for giving thanks for softness
Finally made it in time for a LiveTL! BRING IT, AEREUS.
we're dead in the water boys
Chill Niggers it's a Dell, everything is good.
>actually with his parents
Aereus nobody would have blamed you if you had just pushed the translations till the weekend. I can't even imagine trying to run a TL thread after Thanksgiving dinner.

Boku Girl #87 - My Morals
Actually, I built it for them, so the no java thing is my fault. I guess they just go into standby instead of shutting down all the time. It's a pretty decent PC for $300 though: Core i3 + SSD + no frills mobo = Cold boots to login screen in literally 2-3 seconds.
You're a good lad, every time I visit my parents I have at least an hour of tech support/fixing shit.
On a side note anyone have a Note5 or 4, how is manga reading on the big ass screen. I have an upgrade coming up soon.
** As a girl, what can you do? ** //alt: When in Rome... // it can't be helped
(( Chatter chatter ))
Have you put on some weight?
It's literally only for web, email, and storing pictures. A 120gb SSD is plenty. (of which I created a dropbox account for them and the pictures folder is linked so they don't derp and beg me for recovery later)
The SSD was maybe $20 more than the HDD would have been, but WAY more responsive so I won't have to replace their system in forever now. And even if they mucked it up, the slowdown would be minimal compared to a HDD.
Fufu you're so nervous...
C'mooon || When's the last time you had a bath?
You should be enjoying it!
Easy for you to say... || My body could revert at any moment! *whisper whisper*
Of all the times for the shower to be broken...
How'd your chat with Mr. Gorilla go?
Oh, I know what I'm thankful for this thanksgiving.
Your live translations, thank you Aereus.
With being a girl now || Did anything steamy and exciting happeeen?
Oh please! || I mean sure, I DID change suddenly
But that doesn't prove anything.
I honestly have no idea why it's happening~
(( ramble ramble ramble ramble ))
What's this? What's this? Lovey-dovey talk?
*buzz buzz buzz*
Suzushiro-kun snuck over to the boys dorm?
You've got a boyfriend...!?
No! I went to grab something I forgot. || I mean— I hid there!
( I was definitely flustered back there )
( And yet my body didn't revert back. )
( Maybe what Loki-chan said was true? )
Well if Mizuki is going to move in there mid-series, they have to do something to introduce them. Especially since part of the focus was going to be the uneasiness of dealing with dorm life there. Yet you don't want the series totally losing focus on the main 3.
Just be glad we barely see Yamada and Ide anymore.
>Those iddiie biddie tiddies just chilling in the water
thread sure is moving slowly, did our fellow soft posters die?
I'm alive, but I've posted in the thread plenty already. My guess is just that people haven't noticed the thread or didn't expect it today. I only saw the announcement on the site earlier today myself.
>Just be glad we barely see Yamada and Ide anymore.
I dunno about that guy, but I'm very glad the author used Yamada to further things along and then almost entirely dropped him.
( When I'm around Fujiwara-san I'd become a boy. )
*I'm a man!*
( But if I'm flustered around Takeru... )
No! No way! No way! No way!
*bam bam bam bam bam*
If that's true... that would be terrible.
Our pictures look nice!
Goodness~ My radiance shines through even in photos!
*gofu fu fu fu fu*
Guffaw! They're so awful it's like I'm looking at a real tree!
Look over here || Mizuki-kun also looks great in these shots!
// not sure whose saying that 'ahhn!?' line. tamako?
Why're you wearing the boys uniform!?
-Why?- || I just happened to be in the mood today.
I missed it! Although it hasn't been that long.
I've been away from this from around when the roommate that wore women's underwear appeared, (the manga just slipped my mind and I forgot it's name), but it seems there been some progress.
Anybody mind filling me in?
Are you still hung up about what happened?
I. AM. N-O-T!!
(( SHOUT ))
Oh? Something happened with Ichimonji-kun?
No! It was n-n-n-n-nothing!
(( scuff scuff scuff ))
YOU! WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS!?
>Are you still hung up about what happened?
>asking that so nonchalantly
I don't think I like the translation of that line because it does seem rather dismissive, where as what Takeru is asking is more apprehensive and considerate. Aereus's translation doesn't even do anything with the やっぱ... that's added there at the end
Oh- || Its the morals officer...
I've told you before...
(( rumble ))
Girls wear the girls uniform, boys wear the boys uniform. Those are the rules!
She's more worked up than usual.
There better be a VERY good reason for this!
(( RUMBLE ))
We will not tolerate you doing whatever you feel like!
No harm no foul.
Why not let him wear what he wants?
>Are you still hung up on what happened
We've managed to regress so far that Takeru is now effectively cockblocking himself.
Well this is off the cuff. I don't like to dwell on it for TOO long or that's when you get 20mins between pages. Although I still make considerations for "what would theoretically fit in the bubble"
I agree its maybe a bit more harsh than intended, but he's still essentially intimating that mizuki is still thinking about what happened and bothered by it.
I was going to mention that my TL about that at the end of last chapter was wrong. The kanji was really small and resolution not so great, so I misinterpreted what was said.
Also she isn't a new character per se, but her being pulled from a tertiary to a secondary character status is new. We've seen her at least 2-3x before related to Mizuki first wearing the girls uniform.
ALMOST MISSED IT
wasn't expecting it to be on Wednesday, but whatever.
Yeh, nbd. But just pointing out to the other anon that he wasn't trying to be a dismissive dick.
That he's bring it up at all is showing he's concerned, and his dialog is a bit apprehensive/cautious, but he's still being forward bringing it up at all b/c Takeru is a G.
That's right. And Mizuki-kun looks cute in anything.
(( cheer cheer ))
That's not the issue here!
Are we clear? || I'll go fill your homeroom teacher in on whats happening.
While I'm doing that, I expect you to go get changed into the girls uniform.
(( scuff scuff ))
Aww~ It's too bad Imai-sempai has to be this way.
She's pretty, but has a stick up her ass all the time.
THIS RIGHT HERE!
Look at how jolly this fucker is. This is the face of someone who now knows soft inside and out.
They're already becoming strong friends, though right now Fujiwara might be growing feelings for Mizuki.
I do wonder how everything will end. Fujiwara has turned out to be a really nice character, so I don't want her to be miserable in the end.
She's so pretty, and yet nobody's seen her smile even once.
Untold numbers of guys have been shot down by her.
I hear she shreds them verbally when she does it! //reword
Her unofficial nickname is Lady Iceblood! // lit: coldhearted girl
*tp tp tp*
As promised. // lit: here is 'that' thing

(( TAP TAP TAP ))
Can you imagine tumblr finding out about this series?
>boy that turns into a girl unwillingly and forced into sexual situations finds out that she's secretly in love with her old friend possibly.
>friend constantly sexual assaults and rapes her and it's played off as a comedic gag.
Britfag, had work the following day so I couldn't stay up like a madman with you all.
-- Festival Photos --
-- CUT -- *CLICK*
-- PASTE -- *CLICK*
(( PHOTOSHOPPED!! ))
I must say, it turned out wonderfully.
// at least I think that is the connotation that its 'shopped. can't find a definition for 'kurikora' atm
Aww yeah, reverse trap?
And off to work. At least once it's done I have softness to read.
That would mean she has to end up with Mizuki, if she ends up with Takeru then Mizuki would lose both, and that won't happen ever.
Fuji turning into a guy for me would pretty much cut her out of the running. That would imply Mizuki would choose between Takeru and guy Fuji, so her chances would end there and then.
I'm still hopeful for the Fuji route I like the development throughout the manga between her and Muziki so far.
Oops, you're right. Missing panels are:
Isn't that rather mean to say about a girl?
Yes, she's strict...
But I see that as being diligent.
We look like we're actually going out.
It's... It's wonderful!
(( BOOM ))
she didn't have that much time to make this.
How did she even get this much material in the time since Mizuki was outed.
I feel like loki's magic attracts weirdos, at least that's the explanation I'm going to roll with.
She has a quality shrine candles and the works.
You're my Goddess!
From the moment I saw you at school // lit: the moment i saw you upon entering (high) school
My heart skipped a beat.
( That silky smooth hair )
( That perfect skin and rosy cheeks )
( Those Soft™ lips )
( She was the epitome of beauty... )
(( A GUY!? )) *GLOOM*
( That truth was far too... )
We need someone to make an actual plush.
Oh shit really? Guts is finally off the boat? And I thought people knew for a while now that the MC of the 2nd series was Kaneki? Or was there some twist?
PUREST FORM OF LOVE REACHING CRITICAL MASS
>(( A GUY!? )) *GLOOM*
>( That truth was far too... )
>her face when she finds out his sex is the opposite of whoever he likes so he can't be in lesbians with her
yuri and or pervert girls always that hairstyle
>Guts is finally off the boat?
Yeah, it even got a sticky.
>Or was there some twist?
The twist was that he's been hiding his real personality for the entire first part, and is now going to act as his real self.
Yeah other than Fujiwura, and Takeru, he was the only other one I can respect.
I have already thrown this character in with the Mizuki lust comedic characters along with her father, and shit.
Its not gay if you balls don't touch. My dad told me so.
guess these two will have a new friend in a couple chapters
Hmph! Men are filth.
What do other girls possibly see in them?
They're neither cute nor pretty... || It hurts just thinking about it!
Yet here Mizuki-sama is now as a girl. //reword
The one who bestowed this grace upon me could be none other than an angel sent from heaven!
How dare he...
Why is that man always with her!?
He was attracted to her too. Maybe the manga should say that Loki is making everyone fall in love with Mizuki or something, because the way her vagina is attracting everything in its vicinity certainly seems like a supernatural phenomenon.
We;ll probably end up with the revelation that she hates men because of a traumatic event in her past and then Mizuki's dick will cure her of her hatred of men and set her literally straight.
>Practically almost every character is lusting for Mizuki is getting pretty ridiculous.
Is it ridiculous? Look around in this thread. I'd say it's pretty realistic/true to life.
Mai-chaan~ Dinner's ready!
As I feared || I must protect...
FROM THAT VERMIN!
(( BOOM ))
Today's your favorite, sauteed mushrooms~
These mushrooms're great!
** RUN FOR IT, TAKERU! **
Next time: Sayonara to Takeru's Mushroom!?
Boku Girl #87 END
>Next time: Sayonara to Takeru's Mushroom!?
It's her cutting her hair to go incognito
>Next time: Sayonara to Takeru's Mushroom!?
Thank you for interrupting every now and again in every thread with inferences that you could translate it better if only it were you instead, we really appreciate it. As a token of our appreciation, could I suggest an idea?
If you start your own live TL's, you ~can~ be the one in charge. And you'll be the center of attention in those threads, without coming across as kindofa petty jerk. Wouldn't that be great? And I'm sure all of us will flock to you in droves, right guys?
Or better yet, you could spend this time providing scripts for the group that's now well over 20 chapters behind. That truly would be nifty, no sarcasm intended.
Pretty interesting euphemism for semen.
I guess this answers all the people who were saying that it's impossible for Mizuki to deny her feelings after what happened last time. The power of the Status Quo is impossible to overcome.
>Next time: Sayonara to Takeru's Mushroom!?
Like you can cut something that big with scissors.
>Next time: Sayonara to Takeru's Mushroom!?
>favorite food is mushroom
What a fucking hypocrite.
HE IS A MAN LONG BURDENED WHO FINALLY BROKE FREE.
It's definitely still enjoyable, but I wish they would stop introducing more characters to take screen-time away from Takeru and Mizuki.
Though that's probably the intent at this point.
Providing them with scripts was never the problem. I basically walked away because of the lack of will for them to agree to an improved process to speed up releases, yet still contribute at their own pace. And yet they would randomly rush things out without QC after stalling on the previous step for weeks.
I will be the first to admit I am not perfect. I have a lot of review and study I've been meaning to do for about a year now. Even so, I feel my scripts have improved considerably in the last year or two.
>Thank you for interrupting every now and again in every thread with inferences that you could translate it better if only it were you instead
Providing constructive criticism isn't normally a problem with most people; especially when it clears up misconceptions or there are things that legitimately could use a tweak. Most translators would tell you this. There's no reason to be buttmad. I'm also not remotely the only person who offers little suggestions here and there either.
There's also no need to white knight for Aereus, he's a big boy.
> Or better yet, you could spend this time providing scripts for the group that's now well over 20 chapters behind. That truly would be nifty, no sarcasm intended.
Pretty sure their holdup hasn't been from a lack of translations, but from the delay of quality raws and the hard work entailed from cleaning, redrawing, and typesetting. Seems like they're slowly waiting for the tanks to come out since the raw providers were so god awful for so long.
>all this petting
>still being nonchalant and casual
"Hey, you missed a panel"? That would be constructive. "I think maybe this word sounds more like [alternate phrasing] because [reasons]"? Likewise.
With all due respect, "I don't think I like the translation of that line because it does seem rather dismissive, where as what Takeru is asking is more apprehensive and considerate. Aereus's translation doesn't even do anything with the やっぱ... that's added there at the end" doesn't come across as constructive criticism addressed to Aereus. It comes across an unproductive criticism addressed like a sales pitch to the audience, and it's far from the first that comes across that way.
The provider I'm using atm is decent for magscans. I'm of the belief it doesn't have to be perfect since you should buy the tanks anyways.
Not sure if the zoom level is correct here, don't have PS on my parents PC so I just screenshotted the Dropbox preview. An early test of a thorough cleaning of the raws we use. About 10mins per page.
Hah. New sketch from the author on his twitter:
They look better than most scans from weekly mags.
With all due respect, if this is indicative of your typical MO, how do you even survive 4chan, and the internet at large, seeing perceived insults that aren't there, and unnecessarily white knighting all the time?
That's because your standard MangaStream and MangaPanda ilk shit it through an automated Topaz process that has to err on the side of nuclear winter to clean it.
I can almost see Mizuki´s terrified face if she found him like that.
By having a painfully-honest self-image that makes the real flaws (and FSM knows there are a lot of them) much more prominent than the trumped-up ones flung by people who can't admit their true intentions even to themselves, even when they're obvious to others who observe them over time.
How about you, how's "Anyone who says things I don't want to hear is my enemy and shouldn't be listened to" working out for you?
