I hereby announce the start of Fire Girl Volume 1-2's translation! As always, the actual translation will be hosted over on NanoDesu Translations, with updates and links posted here. Also, posting in this thread is done on the premise that you already know the events of Vol 1-1, so if you want to avoid reading spoilers, go back and read Vol 1-1 before continuing here. (Here's the link (http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread.php/6266-Fire-Girl-Translation-Volume-1-1) to the previous volume's thread)

This volume picks up right after the end of Vol 1-1 and dives straight into the thick of things, focusing on the mystery of the unknown humanoid figure that Homura witnessed on Nutella back in the previous volume. There will be a lot of surprises in store in the coming chapters, so buckle in and enjoy yourself as you plunge into the world of this unique sci-fi/fantasy/high school adventure by Hoshizora Meteo.

Chapter 15 is finished. This one is basically one condensed summary of all the setting information of the Fire Girl world that was ignored until now. (For some reason, the author seems to prefer keeping story action and worldbuilding explanations very much separate from each other in his writing. Does it work well? I'll let you all be the judge of that.) Also, there IS a good reason for the name Nutella, apparently. (Still have to question the author's naming sense, though.)

Chapter 16 is complete, with the plot finally picking up and diving straight into the action, with a nice little surprise revelation at the end (which I certainly didn't see coming, and it forced me to change parts of Chapter 2 in Vol 1-1 as a result). The story is going to get more focused from here on, so look forward to the next chapter soon.

Thanks for the translation.

One thing I noticed was in the sentence:

Well, in other words, we won’t loss anything even if we get our hopes up a bit.
I believe the "loss" should have been "lose."

Thanks for pointing out the mistake, relt, it's been fixed now.


What did you change?

Basically, the gender of the missing baby that was mentioned at the end of the chapter. In the text, no gender was given, so I just automatically put it as a boy, but I hadn't read Vol 1-2 at the time and thus didn't know the hidden significance there. So I changed all the text there so that the baby is indicated as female instead of male now.

Sorry for a bit of delay on this chapter, it's been a hectic month. This chapter mostly deals with the aftermath of the last one, but I personally think the scene at the end was one of the more touching scenes so far in these novels. Anyway, be prepared for a monster of a chapter for the next update, since the next one is the longest chapter in Vol 1-2.

I'm enjoying this LN more than I actually thought I would when I started reading it. Keep it up ED.

At last, Chapter 18 is complete, and boy what a chapter it was, both in terms of its length and the events within it. This chapter really went overdrive on the number of historic references and unique pieces of grammar that I had to make TL notes on, so I hope that the results of all my efforts and research were at least informative to you all. Luckily, the next chapter is extremely short compared to this one, so you won't have a long wait this time.

So does this take place in the Nasuverse, or is it completely separate?

This is a completely separate world from the Nasuverse, so there's no need to read any other Type Moon works before this one.

Thanks to the shortness of Chapter 19, I have a fast update for once! Not much happens in this chapter, but rather it sets things up for the coming climax of the volume. Stay tuned for more soon!

Chapter 20 is done. You guys would not BELIEVE what a pain it is to consciously translate text into Old English. Hopefully I didn't make too much of a mockery of it.

Man, you translate so fast. The only ones who can translate even faster than you so far is Js06 (but then again, he's like a machine).

Haha, if only it were that simple. I'm just the kind of person who has to do things routinely on a day-by-day basis or I procrastinate like hell on it. Whevener I don't translate for more than a week, it's like climbing a cliff to get myself into it again. If it looks like I'm going fast now, it's only because I've finally gotten into the right groove again. Also, the fact that I have pretty fast editors helps speed up my updates.

Small update this time, since Chapter 21 is more like a brief intermission than anything else. The real action will be starting with Chapter 22, which should be out soon as well if all goes well.

Quick update this time for Chapter 22! The final battle (though the end image might make you think different) has finally begun, but unfortunately, it ends on a cliffhanger for now. Don't worry, the resolution comes next chapter, and that should be out soon too if all goes well. Please enjoy.

At last, here's Chapter 23 with the climax battle of the volume. It probably seems a bit short after all that buildup, but I think it kinda fits with the story that Fire Girl is trying to paint. In any case, there's not much left to this volume, so expect more soon.

Here's the penultimate chapter of Volume 1-2! While what happened in this chapter wasn't unexpected by any means, I still have to applaud the author for the way he set up in a way that really makes it touch your heart. There's only the epilogue and afterword left now, so look forward to the end of the Volume 1 arc very soon.

Aaaaaand it's done. After a long time, the Volume 1 arc of Fire Girl is complete. I'm sure people will snicker at the cliche trope the author used for the epilogue, but I found it fitting, personally. Anyway, I'm focusing on edits to prepare for the pdf version, so Volume 2-1 won't begin for a little while yet. (Though, the bad news is that the Volume 2 books is as far as I can go currently, since I've yet to find any scans of the Volume 3 books. Hopefully, this will be solved before it becomes a real issue. Volume 2-1 and 2-2 are quite long, so there's still plenty of time.) Anyway, until then, I hope you all enjoy reading Fire Girl Volume 1 from beginning to end.
