【遅】あけましておめでとうございます

Welp, I’m back in my apartment. Oh winter break, where did you go?
I can’t believe another semester of school starts soon! D:
That’s not cool!
I just got done with you! Let me relax a little longer!
School! You sadist! ;__________;

To assuage my misery, I did another Comic Sylph blog translation ~ These are fun to do :D (I have no idea if I’m translating them right but it’s practice ~ so whatever xD). This post was originally published on Jan 8, 2011.

Title: A Happy [Belated] New Years!

年末進行かーらーの! 入稿&校了祭り絶賛開催中。
あけおめことよろ、シルフ編集部です。

The new year is in full swing! We’re currently working on drafts and performing last rounds of proofreading.
Happy New Years, from all of us at the Sylph editorial department

あいかわらず

As usually…

全員

Everyone here…

まだ仕事してます。

IS STILL WORKING.

(現在、午前5時)

(Presently, the time is 5 AM)

あまりの眠さに、先程みんなで
変若水(※シルフ編集部的に栄養ドリンクの意味)を
1本ずつ飲みました。
しかし年末から飲みすぎているせいか、
体が慣れてしまってあまり効いてきません。おおっと…。

Some time ago, to aid in our battle against sleep, we all drank some weird waka-mizu** (※we were thinking it’d be like a “Red-Bull” for the Sylph Editorial Department).  However, we must have ingested too much since then because nothing has happened (our bodies probably habituated to the effects). Well, crap…

そんなわけで、眠気覚ましに作業中の編集部を歩き回り、
いろいろ撮影してきました。

Due to that fail, in order to keep myself awake, I went around the editorial department and snapped some pictures of the work we’re currently doing.

シルフ3月号表紙の一部です!
雪広うたこ先生の新連載『少年王女』のメインキャラを
チラ見せしまーす。かわいい!

Here’s a peek at the front cover for the March Edition of Comic Sylph!
We’re provided with a snippit of the main character from Yukihiro Utako-sensei’s new serialization: Shounen Oujo (Loosely translated: “Boy Princess”).  Adorable!

『空から! マイ☆NANNY』の入稿の様子です。
帽子のお兄さんよりも、
半ズボンと脚に目が行きましたすみません。

Here’s” Sora Kara! My☆Nanny” ‘s current state.
The kid’s short-shorts and legs caught my eye – sorry about cutting off the dude with the hat.

[lol you sound like a pedo dude xD]

『BROTHERS CONFLICT』の入稿の様子です。
キャラ名のアイコン指定と、ルビ指定が
地味に大変そうです…。

Here’s “Brothers Conflict”‘s current state.
Having to work on the character icon and rubi*** placements looks both easy and hard…

『花檻草子』の入稿の様子です。
新連載1話目の見開き押し倒し絵、衝撃的でしたね…!
今回もドキドキシーンはあるんでしょうか?

This is “Hana Ori Soushi“‘s current state.
Here are some pages from this new serialization’s first chapter – looks shocking!
I betcha there will be more good heart pounding scenes to come.

…まだまだ入稿&校了祭りが続きますが、
気合入れてがんばっていきます!
シルフ3月号は1月22日発売
ですよ~。
来週からはブログ更新祭りの予定! お楽しみに★

…well, we’re still working on those drafts and proofreading…BUT WE’LL GET IT DONE!
Comic Sylph‘s March Edition will go on sale January 22~!
Starting next week, we’ve got plans to update this blog! Look forward to it★

Notes:

**若水 (waka-mizu) is also known as “Young Water.” This can be collected during the year of the tiger in the hours between four and six.  This water is believed to bring health and well-being to the people who drink it (it rejuvenates or makes one feel young, thus the name “Young Water.”)
Information was found from this website.

***ルビ (rubi) is a term used to describe the furigana we see next to kanji (depending on the manga/printed material) – this is to help those who may not have a solid grasp on their kanji yet (like me!) along with other reasons.

  1. Hi there! I’m actually an avid reader of Sylph magazine, and me and my friends have started a scanlation team just for it! Though we’re just beginners, we’ve finally released the first chapter of Shinigami Doggy by Yamamoto Kana, so I thought you might like to know Sylph has lots of our love <3 :D Hopefully we'll be releasing other series in the future!

    • :D How wonderful to find another Comic Sylph reader! I’m glad others exist ^^
      Thank you for letting me know of Shinigami Doggy! I’ll add that to my list of Comic Sylph titles that have scanalations :3 (I myself will get to reading it once I buy the 1st volume in the future ^^ – I like to read RAWs along with the scanalations for practice!) I hope you all have success!
      (and I’m especially interested in your future projects :D)

      Thank you for your comment!
