More! For Experts

That’s about it for all the Tsukihime chapters of Take-Moon that didn’t make it to Carnival Phantasm. You’re welcome.

I’m not really okay with the title, but I’ll try to mimic the translation for the Carnival Phantasm episode.  It’s a kind of follow up to 通な贈り物 -An Expert’s Gift. Still, let’s say it’s still tentative. If you’ve got a more natural sounding title for も~っと通, go ahead and comment. This will be uploaded later.

Take-Moon chapters

I was handling them as galleries, the zips are here. I’ll just redirect shit I don’t want here towards that blog, don’t expect much though. I think I’m just making up excuses to use it.

Also, I think I might’ve missed one chapter. Did Carnival Phantasm have an episode where Arc tried to cook Shinji wakame? If no, I’ll do it some other day.

Even a rat can bite a cat

Titles is 鼠が猫に噛みついた, comes from the idiom 窮鼠猫を噛む. Let’s see what the dictinonary says:

窮鼠猫を噛む きゅうそねこをかむ (exp,id) a cornered rat will bite a cat; despair turns cowards courageous
窮鼠 きゅうそ (n) cornered rat or mouse

Going literal with the title would make it sound too awkward, so I picked another one that flows a tad better, even if not 100% accurate. With this, all the Tsukihime chapters not featured in Carnival Phantasm are done.

Other chapters that I translated are Blade and Don’t think, Imasine.

Take-Moon: Don’t think, feel!

In this little chapter, our cheerful, perfect, pure and amazing heroine, Arcueid, finds herself in a predicament. Nobody wants to play with her! How will this Vampire Princess deal with the overwhelming boredom?! Read to find out how!

Then, the other day (weeks ago) while navigating through the vast seas of my HDD, I found this unfinished chapter of Take-Moon I started months ago. For some reason, I stopped this with only two or three pages —out of eight— left to “translate”. So basically,  after having found this again, I took the 15 minutes to make a new pseudo-translation.

This is literally a 10 minutes translation, so it is far from perfect. The required time of typesetting outweighs that of translating, how precarious of me.

As far as Volume two goes, this is one of the few Tsukihime chapters in need of a translation.

Translated Tsukihime chapters from Take-Moon Vol.2 are:

  • Catching A Goldfish (Sion and Shiki go to a festival, fun ensues)
  • Asagami Maniacs (Hanei and Souka get some screentime at last: The Chapter)
  • Blade -By yours truly. Needs a re-translation, though.- (Hisui finds a demonic sword which belonged to Makihisa-sama, yearns for the Tohno Blood)

currently missing three chapters more, from which only two,  were adapted in Carnival Phantasm (so there is little point in translating them).
