     NOTE: "SUBBING" includes the translating, timing, and typesetting process. Which starts first varies on whether I'm working individually or with a group.

If you want to give support, or simply make me translate the article faster *coughs* (just add a comment saying which article it is so I can prioritize, lol), you can do so by giving me a web clap. XD All you need to do is click on the button below:

Re: silver diamond
Ah yes, there will probably be a Silver Diamond Side Story Volume to be released after volume 27. :)

As for your question, well, it depends on the level of difficulty and length of the article. Mangas are easier to translate than news articles/text books for example, since the former uses conversational Japanese whereas the latter uses more formal expressions. In Silver Diamond's case, it takes a while to translate and review because of the sheer length each chapter (40+ pages per chapter x_x). The manga's easy enough to translate, though sometimes thinking in 2 languages causes your grammar to get a little skewed. I'm actually taking my time translating all the S.D. chapters mentioned above though (meaning I only work on it when I feel like it XD), since it's not like any of the prior volumes will be translated/scanlated soon, unless some kind soul other than silvery_storm works on them. *hopes*

Hello! Thanks for your work in translation. As far I know the 27 volume will be out in these days, or so Amazon says. ^^

Re: silver diamond
Yeahhh It's arrived just yesterday!!!!!. There is an interesting side story about Narushige young years and another about all our guys in Rakan world(?)( I think those are extra story and they are totally new for me). I've not checked yet but it seems that also the main story last chapter is little different from hichiraki "last chapter" but I m not sure^^. Good news we can have a 28th volume^^
