|I'm still alive, I swear! And so is GS2!

久しぶり and all that jazz. As you've probably gathered from the fact that I haven't updated this blog in several months, graduate school has been kicking my ass. Hard. I've got 4 tests, a nasty history paper (the first I've written in 7 years... /cry), a Chinese presentation, and translation/annotation work for an early-19th century Japanese text, all next week. So basically, next week is going to kill me several times over. On the bright side, I 'll be attending a Kodo taiko concert on Wednesday evening, which will be AMAZING (my 4th time seeing them :3 ).
Anyway, enough of me whining about my life. On to what concerns you guys: The Takarazuka Gyakuten Saiban 2 translation. Short answer: YES, the project is still alive and well! I'm actually about 50% done, and I plan to use Spring Break to finish up the whole thing. When is Spring Break, you ask? Well, for me at least, it starts next Saturday and runs for a week, which should be enough time for me to translate and edit everything. So basically, I should have the subs posted online in two weeks time or less. Hurray!
I realize I originally planned to get this out like...a year ago >_> I'm sorry for making everyone wait so long. In fact, I'm surprised no one stepped up and produced a translation themselves o_O Am I really the only person interested in this kind of project? Or at least the only one masochistic enough to actually attempt to translate a Takarazuka play by himself? Hmm....
Oh, that reminds me: After hosting my Takarazuka Gyakuten Saiban clips for over a year, Youtube *finally* decided to take them down for copyright infringement =/ Bummer. I have half a mind to rehost them somewhere else, but I can't be bothered right now. I'll probably do it when I upload the Gyakuten Saiban 2 subs. When I do, I'll post the links here.
Oh, and that reminds me of something else as well: It has come to my attention that the link to the subs for Gyakuten Saiban 1 is dead. Yeah, I should probably fix that. I think I'll also postpone that till I finish work on the subs. Better to do everything at once, you know.
Okay, time to get back to this #%#$%# paper.
