c071: waiting for translation
https://mega.co.nz/#!3EARTKYa!3deFcSI8hAKYB8gv5VySyb1wXVW8dxmpUnTqFMVYl18

v14 came out a few days ago, but since I don't have any spare money to buy it you'll have to wait till I get it scanned at some point in the future, unless someone's willing to pay ¥748 to get it now rather than fuck knows when.

Thanks always for everything.

Proofreader checking in. I have an exam Friday so I don't know if I'll have time to work on the script before then. Hopefully it won't take too long once I get to it, but other people are welcome to proofread in the meantime.

Something's written on a panel above Teruru.

It's ヘイグ on the screens, right? So it would be [Hig], I presume.

Interesting. I wonder if it's his own correction or his editor made him do it.

The letters in Page002 aren't Japanese. They look like random symbols.

Page015:ヘイグ is [Hig].
>>
>>12166931
I would think it's closer to "'we' should have shaken hands", considering the lack of pronoun and how Nihei likes to tease us with Human-Gauna communication.

I've gotten around to doing some work on the script. One of the things I encountered was the phrase "power accumulation" which appears twice in the context of a gravitational beam emitter. It sounds weird so I've changed it like this
>The power accumulation will reach the critical point shortly!
>Energy reserves will reach the critical level shortly!
Can anyone think of a better fit than "energy reserve" or is that good enough?
>>
>>12173680
energy charge?

So I'm guessing Sidonia will end in a year or two considering Kunato came back, romance subplot was resolved(which worst girl won) and the final battle is underway.

Disgusting. If the Captain did do that, it would be like fucking your brother's son. She's not like that. Stop defiling good girls.

Here's the current status of the revision
http://pastebin.com/pnYuVcz3

Some issues:
>Open the Higgs channel step by step according to the progression of the work! (Line 62)
Could you rephrase this a bit better? I'm not quite sure what he means.

>Connection finished to the eighth district! (Line 71)
Is the connection secured, like it was put it place? The adjacent panel shows two guardians fitting pipes together. I was thinking of something like "Connection to the eighth section is secure!".

>Warp succeeded!! It’s not a warp! (Line 121)
Looks like a literal translation but "It's not a warp" sounds strange. Is that person correcting incorrect terminology or something?

I do wonder where that's going. Nihei seems to be in full-on ruse cruise mode.

You guys are reading too much into background chatter. This is reminding me of that Black Lagoon fag who thought every panel in the manga held a deeper meaning.

>Open the Higgs channel step by step according to the progression of the work! (Line 62)
Open the channel by degrees each time any step is done.

>Connection finished to the eighth district! (Line 71)
They are connecting all the sections/districts of Higgs channel in order. Now they finished connecting up until the eighth section.

>Warp succeeded!! It’s not a warp! (Line 121).
It's a literal translation. I think Nihei doesn't want to introduce a "warp" technology to Sidonia. Instead he depicts it as an extreme acceleration, which is so fast that it looks like a warp. This line may be a reminder to the reader, telling that there's no warp in Sidonia's world.

When can we expect a full ch71 release?

Personal question. How do you feel about Sidonia's story thus far?
>>
>>12184300
Ch71 will be out soon. But typesetting takes some time because it needs Photoshop job.

I'm satisfied with the story so far. Now the harem sub plot ended and soon we'll see the final showdown. But I don't forgive Norio yet. He should confess what he did to Nagate and clear his name.
>>
>>12183135
>>12183087
>>12183967
>Being this naive / oblivious
Nagate fucked the captain. Pretty obvious.
>>
>>12180464
>>12184419
Dunno how you guys can consider the romance subplot "resolved" at this point.
>>
It's really shit that Nagate gave in to the captain. Like, really shit.

His heart was set on Tsumugi, and he immediately lets his dick control him.
...I think I'm upset for Tsumugi's sake. Weird.

Translator-kun, let me tell you that I appreciate all the effort you pour into this. Thank you.

Though I'm glad the romance subplot is over, it was also one of my favorite aspects of the story.
>>
>>12185475
if his captain orders him to get his dick wet then he will do it.
>>
I'm busy at the moment, but I'll most likely get it done today.
>>12183653
Some things here and there.
Page 009:
>But it's not as if we have any other options...
Not sure dropping "no chance against this enemy" is a good idea, line look too simplified.
Page 011:
>Hold on tight everyone!!
I think original was better, this way it kinda looks like as if they're already all in position and holding to the engine.
Page 014:
>We're out of Higgs particles!
Again, too simplified. It's official talk on the bridge, so it would be better to keep all that jibber-jabber.
Page 018:
>At any rate, we escaped.
I think Seii was talking about those two, not everyone.
>Hurry up and get back to work!
Maybe it's better to keep it as "restoring work" so people would know what exactly they're doing.
Hope you'll have the time to finalize the script today.
>>
Thanks, everyone.
Also, the title should be "The First Assault Fleet's Decision". Not "Choice". It's my mistake.

The second revision always takes me a lot longer than it should considering I don't change much.
>>
>>12189601
Well, people may think that proofreading is easiest part of scanlation, but it's really not. I'll try to finish it soon.

Also, good news, my scanner guy will get us v14 tank, though I'll start working on it only after I finish Outlaw Star v2.
