Ikikoi Translation Done!

It’s finally done. Ikikoi and I had a tumultuous relationship like an onii-chan and his imouto. It tested my love for SCA-JI and everything moe. And I will have to admit it overcame me. Rest in peace, Kastel, rest in peace.

Next VN project: some loli nukige shit. I hope spring comes soon so I can do other shit besides staying at home ;_;

Kastel has kindly offered to post this on his blog. Without further ado, read below, noting that the sentences in blue are my own editorial comments.

Code Geass Man: Kastel of the Rebellion – Episode 26: But What About the Clannad Man?

Five minutes after I published my previous post, I tweeted how I wasn’t able to differentiate the Clannad Man drama and Code Geass because I was following the former and watching the latter at the same time. Both are entertaining trainwrecks that make no sense.

A few seconds later, Key15th updated. The lastest post: Clannad Man wrote a supposedly full disclosure of the Kickstarter post.

I laughed.

I clicked on the link and the post starts with:

I write to you today utterly dejected.
