I felt all the blood drain from my face when this happen this is great news indeed, Also I'll be shilling this heavily and I except you'll all do the same. If this does well enough this company could end up picking up the GXP stuff as well maybe.

I've been waiting for this since 2005, when I first learned that the novels were under consideration for licensing. As it turned out, it was felt the market for light novels wasn't there yet to justify the cost of translating/publishing the novels.

As an aside, if we want more Tenchi novels translated (especially something long like the GXP novels), sales of the Shin Tenchi Muyo! novels will need to be really, really good.

It is great news. The story of Azusa, Seto, Funaho, Misaki, Yosho, Airi, Washu, Nadja are wonderful, so I hope you enjoy it.
Seto's behavior in this series is very cool.

That moment we're FINALLY being recognized again...

Real talk though (Aside from the "go buy these" comments that literally everyone else here AND their kitchen sinks have already made, which means I won't have to make that comment), the fact that Kadokawa was willing to license the True Tenchi novels in the first place, something that I thought would NEVER be licensed, means that they might still care about the western fanbase after all.  Hopefully, this gives a good kick in the pants to anyone in any relevant position of power who even shows remote interest in securing a western license for OVA 4.  :)

...you know what, I'm gonna say it anyway.  We need to buy these.

P.S.- it's good to have a real keyboard again. ;)

Oh yeah, that's right... and I was just talking about this recently.  Gonna edit the post shortly.  But yes, this is EXACTLY why AIC needs to just sell everything Tenchi to Kadokawa and get it over with.  Kadokawa has shown that they are willing to license their stuff here (A bunch of their stuff outside of Tenchi such as Kemono Friends and Kantai Collection got licensed, and heck, at least Kancolle even got an English dub).  Further proof that AIC is mishandling things right now (STILL no OVA 4 license and the fact that they legit fed the Pretty Sammy sequel kickstarter to the big bad wolf known as the Megazone 23 kickstarter), plain and simple.

P.S. - Awesome stuff man.  Yes, touchscreen keyboards can be a royal pain in the rear end.

I will definitely buy all 3 novels when they come out. If only my friends and family were anime fans...

i am pretty concerned though about this... I really hope they don't try to work around the potentially" problematic" non PC parts of the tenchi novels and ruin it. I mean u got a story about a 20 something dude marrying a teen girl and wishing her off to neglect her as his space bride... u got a novel that starts with awkward morning boners from stepmom. ryoko doing drugs masturbating and having sex...  oh and a novel about wasuu going to space college and discovering she likes pussy expcialy old lady pussy... and and then finding out she likes dick to but not really since she does the single most lesbian thing ever and moves on to a farm with her twonlesbian lovers and her husband... also the subject of being able to switch dingdongs and hoohas at will  cause future trchnology...comes up. there's so much I could see them fucking up just for the sake of sparing the decency of an American audiance from harm.

I am surprised to learn that the True Tenchi Novels are being license by Seven Seas.  Now I am curious about the GXP novels.  To me, the GXP novels are a way to help the Tenchi Muyo- Ryo-Ohki Canon.

believe me when i say this for us tenchi otaku it wont but for less intense fans it will. they will never read through my translations even now they expecialy wont if there is an official one. i mean why would they need to unless they enjoy my commentary?

if they censor washu then good luck to literally any of tenchi or gxp ever making any sense ever to them...
shit everyone though that clay was just kicked out cause they showed like porn or something at his award ceremony before i looked it over.

he got kicked out eventually for basically doing the naked man move on a girl he was supposed to be showing around campus and trying to get him to have sex with her on tape.... and the octopus nickname is because they have a creature on the academy like a nautilas that exclusivly reproduces through deception and force... and the guy went and crafted his whole image over that nickname.

and well theres all sorts of other stuff like that in the books that i worry they might dodge around.... hell that scene where she basicly agrees to learn to muff dive in exchange for getting the old lady's observatory is so super subtle that even if they weren't intending to its easy to mistranslate and if you do it comes off as very awkward and clunky. actualy the entire washu novel was hard... its filled with slang and subtext....

plus you have things like washu's planet is kanamitsu and u have kanemitsu the buttler aand in japanise those words are very different but in english its confusing.

and you got things like kusobaba... which is more of a kajishimaism then a word... and you got kajishima randomly breaking the naritive of the firstbook to explain his world....

I'm not familiar with the company that's doing this but have they been known on record to rewrite/redact certain parts of a book over fuck scenes like this?

Looking through some of the other titles they carry. They are okay with Mature content. Some of which is explicitly tagged as mature.

Nice. Hopefully it sells good, so they license the GXP novels and talk Kajishima into licensing some of his doujinshi. Which could be a real possibility, given that Seven Seas previously released doujinshi for Dance of the Vampire Bund. Which by the way, if they have no problem releasing DotVB uncensored, I don't see why anyone would think they'd butcher Kajishima's novels.

I still can't believe that Seven Seas still remembers we're around, let alone willing to take the risk. If they're willing to license Tenchi material at all by this point, there is a very good chance that the GXP novels are next. Not to mention that, they seem to be very popular among Japanese fans.

Now all I have to worry about is whether my local bookstore(s) will carry copies.

i just wanna read n compair how accurately i got what was going on cause honestly the true tenchi novels really stumped me in.parts like the whole azusa vs the shanks part... and the kanemitsu hirata fight and the shit with yosho being taken to that amaki dudes place by kanemitsus dad...  washu is the only book that im pretty sure i got like 95% accurate but as i mentioned many time sits filled with hard to translate double speak due to naja and washus relationship

What was some of the other stuff you did for the novels, ANB? I think I remember you said you got them to keep the honorifics, and I saw the surnames were first on the back cover.

I'm real excited!

Yes, honorifics are all there, including brother/sister ones. And surnames are first. I'm very thankful the editorial staff at Seven Seas agreed to this. You'll see "House Masaki" rather than "Masaki House" because I think that's how fandom mostly has done things, going off the Dune pattern for royal Houses. And it was my preference as well. I kept names spelled the way we would expect.

BTW, in addition to all of the illustrations being there (and the color ones are in color), there's an interview at the back of the book, which I don't think I was ever aware of before. Actually, it is more of a conversation between Kajishima-sensei and Kuroda-sensei. So that was quite interesting to me.

yeah i did too why i cut it out of my adaption. but its somehow declunked here i remember it being way more jarring in japanese...

Post by: AstroNerdBoy on June 26, 2018, 10:27:05 PM
When it came to names, I was kinda at the mercy of the translator. A name I was aware of, like Airi, was easy to fix. But names I wasn't aware of, I just went with what the translator provided.

But that does raise an interesting question (and hopefully one that doesn't get me into trouble)--if the translator did a name with an apostrophe to help make sure the name is pronounced correctly, would that be OK with you all? For example, SANZENIN Nagi in Hayate the Combat Buter had the official family name spelling Sanzen'in.
Title: Re: True Tenchi novels licensed by Seven Seas!
Post by: Fap_fapperson on June 26, 2018, 10:35:44 PM
i dunno why anyone character in true tenchi would need an apostraphe though? like who?
and you really should read my version if your giving character name cues and such cause the old versions were filled with giant holes and i filled them in  but kept the dialoge vauge . im going to be hiding the links to jurai soon though

i like how they did shuzan cause thats how its pronounced but its spelled shyuuzan in japanise which is just confusing its a hard name to pronounce honestly


overall im glad with how this came out. it could have been a huge trainwreck not because they didnt do their job right but because this book is soooooo clunky in the original language... they kept the parts that make it that way but phrased it better. 

but this is just the first novel and it really isnt the most extreme or hard to translate book... although they are really doing quite alot of soft localization in this novel... like calling it a juraian lute instead of a biwa... its negligable there are alot of things in later novels that just will give any translater a struggle if they plan to soft localize it that way.

Kane’aki. I mentioned it to my boss at Seven Seas and for now, I've decided to leave it like this because of the pronunciation.

That is a name I knew well, but the translator correctly spelled it, so I didn't need to fix his name.

Haha! Well, that was part of our job. The translator did outstanding work as far as I'm concerned. And then anything that was still confusing, I tried to clarify as best as I could.

Post by: Fap_fapperson on June 27, 2018, 02:16:23 AM
oh right kanemitsu's father / kasen's butler...  hmm... I can see how that would work. hey whatever keeps people from mispronouncing... huge pet peeve of mine when it's done super super badly. Ive here airi refer to as Errri once and i was just like O_o...

Please be aware in Washu... there is a lot of strange dialog... because it's closeted lesbian innuendo and double speak... at first i wasn't sure when i was reading it but the later you get into the novel and the later novels all confirm it, like her conversation with the observatory lady, and basically anything naja says,


scenes I can recall off the top of my head like this:


Quote
"By the way Ms.genius..." said naja
"Please, I'm a genius just because of a two seconds difference? Please do not call me that ... I have a..." washu said but was cut off
"I know, It's Washu-chan, isn't it?" (4)
"uhm, referring to me that way so suddenly is a bit... ...."
"Hey, Washu-chan, do you have a boyfriend?"
"Oh ... no, uhm, that is to say..."
"So you don't? Hey, Washu-chan ... Hey, uhm aren't you?"* asked naja
( * this seems to be both, don't you have a boyfriend and hey aren't you. Aren't you. yes this is exactly what you think it is. it's a sly double question asking if she munches box.)

(6)
 washu wasn't expecting this line of questioning and was taken aback
"……there isn't " is all washu could force out with a sigh.
"Oh so then you don't" (7)
"... ... why do you say that like it's a good thing." washu asked
"huh? Because... I also don't have one, were the same? Washu-chan"

(this line i personally translated manually 同じ者同士じゃない is a confusing phrase... intentionally so. broken down it's: same (thing/person)/ friend/ companion
同性 is dousei or homosexual is very close to 同士じ doushi the same ...
同じ pronounced onashi which is companion is close to onabe which is lesbian.)


And so it was quickly decided that she would be called washu-chan.
"I'm sure we'll be good friends, I think we will get along just fine ♡


Quote
"This is amazing, is this your home, Naja?"
"............" naja gazed at washu as if she was day dreaming about something and was somewhere else entirely (subtext)
 "... ... ... uhm what is it? naja-san?"
"oh uhm , yes, yes, that was a nice joke you just told. I can't believe you said it with a straight face." she said with a sly smile while tapping washu's shoulder
"It would be kind of strange if as a guide i suddenly just took a new student who wasn't from around here to my house, wouldn't it? " ( SUBTEXT)



if you aren't aware of this going in it is easy to skip over in translation, but it render's Makoto's lesbian confession to washu odd and out of place and makes the whole "and mikumo had three parent's " thing seem very very very out of place...

also to clarify, i don't know if it shows up in the books but in the last doujin that came out with all the DMM pictures Naja was confirmed as being a hermaphrodite when she met washu, and then after meeting her she soon became a full woman.

Quote
the woman was shocked. she went to the telescope and focused it on washu's house and asked washu if that's the house she was talking about. she couldn't believe washu wanted this place for that place. it was worth much less. she couldn't afford it. but washu assured her that she wanted a 1 for 1 exchange not to buy it. The woman still wouldn't sell it to her. the woman asked her why she wanted to buy the ranch that her master had given her. It reminded washu of home and of her room in roof of the orphanage with the observatory.

"oh, is that right."
"Yes!"
"Uhufu, the new philosopher has a strange hobby after all" (SUBTEXT)
"I think that I am normal, but ... ... what about you ...?"( text)
"let's just say my range of interests is wide ... Ho ho ......"(text) the woman smiled at washu. her face and laugh reminded her of her mother back on kanemitsu
"No, that's okay, it's important for an old woman to have interests."
"That's not to say so ... No... yeah."
"oh...? Even so, the machine parts of this place are in very rough condition." she says while looking at the mechanical part
 Saying while watching the mechanical part visible from the window.
"Since my husband died, there's been no technician who could do maintenance."
"Could you let me do it?"
"But ..."
"Please think of it as both a survey... and form of studying."
 The old woman who was holding back at the beginning decided to agree to washu's terms then from then on everyday washu came to the observatory an did internal maintenance.


Quote
"Why are you leaving?" washu asked naja after the wedding, naja was packing up some luggage.
"What are you talking about, I don't want to get in the way of you two newlyweds."
"Do you know how many people live here?" there were hundreds of dozens of maids and butlers living together on the ranch with them, but that had nothing to do with naja leaving
"what do you mean."
 Washu, who was watching Naja, realized that she was suffering from being deprived the pleasures of planning a wedding ceremony.

(this is again also appears to be double speak that implies more that she is mad because she wasn't able to have a wedding for her and washu)

her words about not wanting to disturb the newlyweds were half hearted.
washu hugged naja from behind and while kissing her bangs she muttered

"... ... damn. Naja, all this just because you want to show off.......? stay with me ♡"
"Well then, I guess I will just have to disturb you!"
"Yeah ♡" and at washu's request naja lived together with her and mikumo on washu's ranch.
unfortunately because of the instability of their situation they weren't able to visit neither seiniwa nor kanamitsu. (its not even subtext anymore)
And nine months later, washu gave birth.
it was a boy.
she named him "Mikumo".

obviously my dialog isn't a perfect 1 for one translation always but i was very very careful when i did this book, often dissecting sentences like that manually to be sure. so during those scenes just keep in mind there is layers to what is being talked about and it needs to be conveyed. OR ELSE MANY PARTS OF TENCHI MAKES NO SENSE and a huge part of seto's motivation to unite the galaxy is just lost...


--------------

on an unrelated note, although it takes a while to get used to it i am very glad you made them keep the surname name order, because in yosho , and this is just a minor detail,

Airi introduces herself as airi magma, and yosho introduces himself as masaki yosho, and he thinks her name is magma...until she corrects him
 its an intentional culture shock moment and it only makes sense  the way you had them do it, but you should make clear to them, not every character in the tenchi series says their surname first, it depends on the culture they are from and the text will show you most of the time. but it's intentional and changing it does loose some of the context,


that's all i can think of off the top of my head... gxp had way more struggles to translate tbh

As an aside, if you guys bought the first novel from any online site, toss a review there. I'm not saying throw a 5*, "Oh, it was the greatest of the great" review. You should be honest in your * rating and in mentioning your likes and dislikes. I don't know if it will help much, but it at least shows that there is "movement" for said title on those websites (Amazon, RightStuf, etc.), if that makes sense.

Technically, "Jurai" and "Yosho" are what Kajishima-sensei refers to as the "Jurai arc." He says as much in the afterward of "Yosho." Basically, the two novels will give you an understanding of the political situation on Jurai and hopefully an understanding of why Jurai was so concerned about Tenchi and his harem in OVA 3.

Finally went and picked up a copy today. I've also been seeing some Japanese Tenchi fans on twitter have been buying it.

Yeah, I joked that I think as many Japanese fans are buying it as are American fans. I won't deny that I'm a bit disappointed this hasn't gotten as much buzz in America. I guess that's to be expected from an old series AND the fact that (1) this isn't some SJW manga/novel title that can be promoted like mad to win brownie points and (2) it doesn't have a title like, "I'm going to seduce Oniichan, then I'm going to drain his balls of every last sperm cell, and I'll kill anyone who dares get between me and Oniichan, even if they come from another world." 🙄

Went and picked up a copy of Yosho at my local bookstore. And it was on sale too.   spends
