3 days late? For what? Why, that sad announcement I mentioned in the previous post….several days ago XD.
As of last Sunday, I decided to postpone all fansub translating duties till further notice. I cite several reasons:
-A new project with my work came up, and I have to prioritize that.
-With less free time than I had before, I decided to use the remaining free time with watching anime(to clear my queue) and for other anime humoristic concoctions I may come up with.
-Some of you may not know, but I hate typing. Well, just a little bit…not exactly hate, but when you’ve done that for a considerable amount of times in your life, it get’s kind of stale, and my last translation job, To Heart 2 OVA, was nearly 400 lines and I kinda went ballistic lol. We can probably thank Mavis Beacon for that >_>
-And…..my ears are sensitive, kinda like a….rabbit lol. I aim to use my headphones the least amount of times as much as possible.
-(What kind of excuse was that previous one? Lame lol)
Ahem anyways, the main point is, stopping my translation duties does little to free up any free-time I have. I don’t game as I usually have done, I don’t draw as much as I did before, and well, very little time these days….
It hurts me to have a minor role in fansubbing, as I found it quite enjoyable working with fansubs. Now, I’m not saying I’m quitting fansubs, I’m just stopping translations for groups. Oddly enough, that makes it one less translator in the fansub world with the already low amount of translators these days.
Have any thoughts on my decision? Leave a comment and vote on the following poll, as I now introduce post based polls specifically for the post in mind.
