    Because you were clearly extending that logic to ask why I don't use Soujuurou Shizuki if I'm already willing to romanize the names to begin with, and the answer is I think it sounds messy. (And also "what a dumb argument", but that would be rude and shows a lack of sensitivity towards humor.)

    For the record, I don't really mind, I just wanted to know.

    Hey, leaving name kanji intact worked for Arai's HandS translation!

    (no it didn't)

    edit: I meant JtheE, it evidently didn't work for HandS

    No, I wasn't. I was trying to help you by giving you one less thing to stress over by just leaving in the actual characters the Japanese use to spell their names! But noooo, you just have to do things the hard way. Fine, ignore my olive branch. See the pandora's box you open when people remind you of how much you've changed and screwed up. Just wait until someone quotes your translation choices for an argument.

    Let's not quibble over names. There are other (difficult) ways to stress the relations among the characters without using honorifics.

    The way I see it, if you can't tell how the characters feel about each other by how they interact, they might not be very good characters.

    Especially when they all have, like, fifty different poses and expressions.

    I don't understand what happened in the last page and what was TomPen asking when he said something about Aoko's name.

    Ah, that's the reason I didn't read it yet actually.
    *trying to convert the text to kindle format*
    *kanji ruby messes the text up*
    *gives up*


    Well I actually try to convert it again every year or so in hopes some Calibre update fixed it.
    I wonder if someone took the trouble to typeset it something?

    Also I'm in favor of Japanese suffixes and names order. I cringe when I hear one thing and read another. Luckily Mahouyo isn't voiced so I can live with it.

    There are translations that don't preserve the way the characters adress each other (namely honorifics and using someone's family name). I asked if that was the case.

    It used to be different but I had a flash of inspiration during editing. I am very proud of that line.

    Also Canned Food Festival was a riff off the Cannes Film Festival. I swear I don't know why the students at Misaki High love puns so much.

    I cannot believe this has actually happened. McJon, I know this has been said many times already, but thank you so so much! Even if it's only the first 5 chapters, this is a dream come true.

    I won't be reunited with my physical copy of Mahoyo until xmas, so until then I'll enjoy a couple of months of hype!

    Mcjon was kind enough to include a patch that fixed the 64-bit problem, so it wasn't that hard for me.

    Though AppLocale not working on Windows 10 sucks balls.
