Among the pile of untranslated stuff, a few things stands out, one of them is "Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-ohki 101 Secrets". For those who don't know, it's basically a novel in a fake interview form, who explains a shit load of stuff about OVA1 and 2, from Kajishima's point of view.
While neither an official translation nor a complete fan-scanlation exist, a old fan-translated-transcription does exist and is flagged as a "Summary".
My point is : We can trust this translation.
But you're gonna say "Meh, that's just a mere sum-up skipping too much things to be relevant in any discussion of any kind, just like the Shin Tenchi novels ".
I answer No, I think it is different. My first argument would be that it is a story-less novel, therefore there's little room for self-interpretation. Secondly, from the 2 scans (quite a sample I know) I translated myself (here and there ) , the output is quite the same. Thridly I doubt that anyone would throw him/herself into a full translation from scratch, knowing that this "summary" exist.
My little project for this thread would be to create a home for anyone interested in the novel, who wants more infos on a specific question, or has doubt on the existing translation. I (or anyone) could provide the scan about the specific question, and deliver more infos if more infos are available.
Note : I don't know about you guys, but my scans are in awesome quality (Around 2500*4150 pixels, seriously it's amazing). It makes it really fast to rip, and easy to translate.
In my very personal opinion, I think (with noproof of course) that there are no mistake in the "summary", and that anyone can reference it as a legit source. But that's only me that's why I make this thread.
The actual summary : https://archive.is/4iKRB
I didn't read it entirely yet, so I guess I may not be the only one.
If anyone wants the scans, well pm me and I shall send a direct download link.
The scans are also on g.e-hentai, in lower quality (Still pretty good). Just search : "Kajishima 101"
This thread could also turn into a general "101 Secrets Thread".
Who is interest in it ?
Who thinks that the existing summary-translation is bullshit and should be wiped out from the face of the earth ?
