Kantai Collection E-5

I am so happy I completed this god damn event map that I’m actually going to post here about it because I feel like I really need to type this down so I can look back on it in the next event and realize why the Hell I’m still trying to clear even when RNG is wrecking my ships like nobody’s business.

After 8 straight failed sorties, a great deal of which were somehow done by the CL oni critting my Haruna to red immediately (I tried going straight to the boss regardless once and she lived with 71 HP) or that CV hime pre-boss node (100% Abyssal accuracy OP), I managed to get to the boss with no chuuha/taiha ships and entered the night battle with no chuuha/taiha on my escort fleet. Needless to say, my main fleet had two taiha because RNG OP.

Night battle started off okay. Ro-chan wanted to cut-in, so I was like “YES!” until she only did 40 damage (which was still a “yes” but not as loud). BB water demon decided she wanted to hate on me here so she decided to taiha Sendai who was next in line. Yuudachi came up and did a double attack for like a total of 9. Then my E-5 goddess, Yukikaze, came with her insane luck and pulled a cut-in, dealing the final 190 damage to the boss and winning me E-5. I wasn’t sure if she would manage to do it or Kitakami + Ooi who were right behind her would do it (or fail to do it), so I cheered and started messaging/shouting at everyone about the win.

If any of you are also playing Kantai Collection and struggling with this god damned boss, I can only wish you luck. I stopped praying to RNG-sama and started praying to the KanColle developers near the end. Hopefully that’s what blessed Yukikaze, even if I’m not spiritually in tune enough to believe that.

As an aside, if I had failed that sortie, I have absolutely no fuel or ammo left now so I would’ve failed to clear ♡.

EDIT: E-6 farming being amazing for me personally. I got a lot of random rares during the event (Ooyodo, Tokitsukaze, etc.) and now I’m getting everything I wanted to date (Kaga, Shoukaku, etc.). If my luck on E-5 was traded for this, I’m strangely okay with that.

Hyouketsu Kyoukai no Eden Volume 7, Chapter 2 – Those Who Set Off. Those Who Wish. Those Who Continue to Pray

It suddenly became a lot easier to motivate myself to translate because I started playing Kantai Collection…

ブイン基地七海、出ます!

You might see me streaming it on http://www.twitch.tv/madobenana.

EDIT: Finally got U-511 after sparkling my entire combined fleet to 100 morale and burning offerings to RNG-sama in the corner of my room. Now if I could just somehow pump enough firepower out of my CLs/DDs to sink this E-4 boss, I would be very happy.

Hyouketsu Kyoukai no Eden Volume 7 – Blank Baptism

A note going into this volume, Blank in the volume title is written the same as Igun’I. In the afterword, it was written as 空白の洗礼 which is literally “blank’s baptism”. I translated it as Igun’I back there seeing as there’s nothing known as “blank” other than him who can possibly use baptism. Might be worth keeping in mind though.

Nobody seemed to be complaining about the color stuff, so this will also be using the new blue-purple stuff to add extra visual indication for differentiating between quotation types and speaker properties (mechanical or otherwise).

Hyouketsu Kyoukai no Eden Volume 6 Afterword

With this, we move into the next volume. This also officially marks having passed the halfway point as Hyouketsu Kyoukai no Eden ended at 11 volumes.

I’m not sure how I’m going to make it obvious that some text has ridiculously scratchy font facing yet. Not sure if I’ll even do anything about it…maybe just a bold and italics from now on.
