Ch 128 "Summary" update

Um, yeah. I'm suspecting that there's a good chance I'll be doing the last 3 chapters in translation form. 'Tis the end and all. :P (If it continues beyond three chapters... Oh well).

As things stand... I really want to know what Shigure meant by that parting gift. Akki has a look of shock, and the camelias falling in the background... ;_; But the look on Shigure's face speaks more of saying good-bye to the old Akki than literally saying good-bye to Akki. It can also be good-bye to "Goddess" Akki. Akito's really looking feminine lately. Perhaps, she's reached a stage where she can't hide being female any longer? The other thing I noticed though, since Arisa and Saki met Akito at the hospital. Akki must be quite tall. Arisa was wearing heals and she's already really tall, but Akito seemed to be of similar height?

Akito's comment of putting an end to everything... it makes me wonder to what exactly and to what extent. Akito as head of the clan can certainly order such things as the Cat's home to be destroyed, but can she bring an end to the curse itself? But she definitely has something in mind.

One of the lines that most sticks to mind in this chapter isn't a particularly important one, but still says a lot. That was Akki telling Hiro that she didn't hate that part of him which kept trying to realise his dreams despite his not having much strength or wisdom yet. Akito spoke in the past tense, which to me, speaks of how much she's letting go. I suspect we'll see more of that aspect as well with the upcoming gathering of the 12shi + cat though.

And like everyone else who's seen it, I love Tohru's fleeing for her life. For her freedom? She's not going to have it in a sense once Kyo catches her... ^^; Of course, the one month wait could be a bit painful... >_<;;

Otherwise, Saiunkoku ep 9 is mostly done (not linked though), and is awaiting a few more tweakings. Should be done tomorrow night.

Ah...I was wondering, too. I speculated that Akito, as God of the Juunishi, could end things if she wanted, but it's obviously not that easy, huh?

Thanks for the summary! ^^

B.T.W like my new icon? ^^ Heh heh! This chapter sure has inspired a lot of icon-creation huh? ^^

FB Kiss! (avataresque)

It's true she won't have her freedom, but she'll have boykitty! Isn't that a good enough trade off for her? And she did start it.

I've already set a countdown timer to ch. 129. It's quite depressing - 24 days. Oh no! I had it set wrong - its 29 days.

Oh yeah, Saiunkoku. *flees*

*laughs* Although she's certainly giving him a run for his money. But at least he has managed to catch up quite a bit. ^^;;

Oh yeah, Saiunkoku. *flees*

Eep! BTW, have you managed to watch the series yet? ^^;

rat by skellorg on obsessiveicons

No, last night's plan was to watch it (I only have 2 eps, on the lookout for the 3rd), but I got caught on ICQ. *shrug* Oh! I'll put it on my laptop & watch it between classes today. *nod* (There's no wireless on the laptop, so there should be no distractions. ^_^)

she is too fond of books

*obeys*

Alas, when I went to watch yesterday, I didn't have the right program on the laptop and quicktime couldn't handle any of the .avis I had. *pout* I had to read! How 19th century! ^_~

akito - girl

I've been noticing Akito's height as well. Supposedly she's 5'3'' and Shigure is 6', but she looked really tall in this chapter, as she did in the last when Arisa hugged her while wearing heels (and isn't Arisa supposed to be on the taller females in the series?) *laughs* I've been trying to figure out Kureno's height by using Akito as a measuring stick, and since he's over a head taller than her... he must be quite tall.

Arisa's supposed to be quite tall. Didn't she have some desire to hit 170 or 180? I can't remember it exactly but remember there was a scene on it just after they came back from holidays. ^_^

Shikito -- first love (flamika)

I bet Shigure got her lingerie...

*laughs* That would be hilarious! I can just imagine Akito's expression when she opens it. ^^;;

Hi, I tried to use the feedback form, but it didn't work. I just wanted to thank you for Kagesai no Yume. It's obvious you're passionate about the titles you covered. I originally came here to learn more about Furuba, but now I'm a fan of your translations. I noticed you added Saiunkoku Monogatari to your list, so I've started reading that too. Thank you for introducing me to new stories, and thank you for having that great site. ~ Hamp

PS: Akito's character growth of late has been admirable. She was never a really likeable character before, but it seems as though her determination works both ways. I really liked that Kureno was eventually freed too, specially with Arisa around. Even Saki/guy who's much too old for her but strangely appropriate! (Poor Kyo. ^_^) Yuki/Machi, Kyo/Tohru and Akito/Shigure in the next chapter? That is exciting! :)

Greetings and welcome! ^_^ Sorry about the form, I have to change some things still on the site. ^^;;

Saiunkoku Monogatari's proving to be a great series. I hope you have fun with it. ^___^

After seeing the Saiunkoku novel translations on your site, I went to look the anime up. It looks good, and I think it helps flesh the story nicely! The characters are also interesting, and Ryuuki is a cool guy. It's like...getting a period drama buff fix + history lesson + proverb lesson + good romantic story all in one go. I don't usually like heroines in these kinds of things (Tohru is an exception), but Shuurei comes off as being smart and self-assured, very likeable.

I just wanted to say, this is great! ^__^

hehe! I absolutely loved Tohru's reaction! ^______^
love's scary! she's had good reason to run though I'm sure kyou will catch her and never let go *sniffles*

Saiunkoku!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i want the next episode already hehe ^o^

good!! mwuahahaha me too ^_^
it's such a disappointment that the testosterone fansubbed dominated blogs think the story is just too slow or "shoujoish" for their taste and the fansubbers (amongst the two of them they must be competing for record slowest fansub project x_x) bah good thing we have you nyaaaah!

btw are you still planning on doing summaries of the novels? has been checking daily for updates on chap 3 (left off where Shuurei went to sleep on floor and woke up next to Ryuuki in bed ^//^)

well 2 more days and ep 10 should be showing around in cyberspace ^o^

Yeah, I am, but it's taking time. I'm not sure where this week's gone. It seems to have disappeared for some reason. >_<;; As it is, Ch 3 has only been mildly tweaked so it's at least easier to see where in the novel you are. Unfortunately, there's still a loooong way to go for it. >_<; But ep 9 is now up (finally). ^^;;

Teehee! // Lizzie [by shmarollynn]

Hello :) I got here via another LJ (Ichi's? She has some raw chapters of Furuba up, which I've yet to take advantage of, lol), even though I knew about your Furuba translations beforehand. Anyway, just wanna say that loved your tanslations for Furuba, of course :) The wait between these last 3 chapters is excruciating. In fact, I'm sure this is Takaya-sensei's plot to make us squirm in our seats while waiting for the next chapter T_T

Um, I think I digressed a bit. What I really wanted to say was I'm adding you xD; It's Ok if you don't add me back, though, just wanted to tell you how I found you & friended you instead of just suddenly adding you without telling and then you'll go all "who are you and why are you here?" or something like that ^^; (Hmm, I seemed to like to digress and that should be all xD)
