(Reitaisai 10) [Gekidan Bunshichi] Grand Guignol (Touhou Project)
I actually done it.

It's almost 150 pages long, but in truth I only had to edit around a hundred. It's still a lot, considering it's a one-man job, but this took all in all about eleven hours in total.
Mononobe Arc, the first chapter, doesn't make a lot of sense if you don't understand the history of the Mononobe clan in ancient Japan, but do enjoy the wonderful artwork done by cis! A lot of googling had to be done to find out what the phrases and chants mean.
I think the translation which turned out the best was the second chapter. I really feel that I've gotten quite a good grip on which words to use and in the end it flows really well.
I particularly enjoyed Orin to Mokou, as the usage of words in there was quite interesting, and it was quite fun. I kind of fell off a bit in the end...
The opening was the hardest part to translate, and for good reason- the words used were so far out not even a regular Japanese person can understand...
Anyway, with this I have an empty request list, so pile it up!
