Back from hiatus... for a short time  

Hi all,

So, it's not November. No, my life has become a lot crazier than I thought it would.
I did accept a job in November to fulfill my dream of working in Tokyo, and I graduated university in December.
Since then I've been busy with a whirlwind of preparations and pre-training for my job.
I am really sorry that I didn't provide any updates since my promised return date of November. I really have been inconsistent and irresponsible.
Even worse, I know that I will be too busy to translate once I start my career in April, so I will be translating my final issues (91 and 92, as well as previous issues that were needed to fill in gaps) and <-- Looks like someone has taken care of this. Thank you!) leaving the LJ world. :( (I will leave up my journal so that you can always read the issues I've translated.)

I just wanna thank everybody for reading and commenting on my translations. I know how much it means to you to read Yamapi's words and I sincerely hope that it has impacted you in a positive way. I also hope that there will always be a replacement to continue these translations because they really are insightful and fun to read.

Thank you everyone and good luck in all your endeavors :)

Welcome back, but sorry to hear you'll be around for just a short while. We've missed you. While you were gone, someone was able to complete the translations except for the most recent issues (vol 95 and 96). Vol 94 is translated but is still in the editing stage.

Good luck to you in the future and thank you again for all your contributions to the fandom!!

vol 95:

No, thank you! And that's good to hear! I guess I will leave it up to the new translator! :)

Thank you for finding me and sending me the scans each month. I really had a lot of fun doing this!

I hoped we would be able to read another translation from you before your RL takes you away from us for good. It was always a joy to see your entry pop up in my email!!

Thanks for all your past translations! It certainly helped me understand and liked Pi more every time I read his articles.
