    Wow! You are a magnificent translator. All hail yoraikun. You really need to let us reward you somehow. I feel we gain so much enjoyment yet you aren’t compensated besides knowing we enjoy your work. Thanks again. With love, from Japan.

    Reading from Japan! Keep up the great work! Any new novel you will translate after this? I want some action novel!


  4. You know the biggest problem of this novel?

    Not enough female presence.

    Both the fujoshi and the icy cold female detective could have worked with some descriptive mentions of their physical aspects. Getting something to tickle the readers’ imagination.

    It’s bloody dry read.

    Yorai San,

    I see it is you mention you live in spaceship over Michigan. Is you college student or do you not have job and this all you do in your life? I want to work together on translate but as you see my English not all good. Maybe I help you with Japanese and you help with English? Looking forward to what you say! <3

    The cases look easy (at least when compared to Detective Conan), but I have no idea how to solve any of them lol. Especially when it comes to cornering the culprits.

    Any adventure novel upcoming?


  11. Random says:

    You tend to be pretty critical of the changes you made to make the story make sense in English, but I thought that they were pretty clever. Every case makes sense and in some cases you had to be pretty creative. This is probably the best translation of a mystery novel I have ever seen.


So, what's on your mind?
