  1. Arifureta Shokugyo de Sakei Saikyo. (From commonplace to world's strongest) Actually started reading the manga a few months ago, and then started reading the web novels when the manga caught up. Only found out recently that an anime is currently airing. Another interesting series for me. What is it with these Isekai series? These seems to be the constant thing that gets my interest recently.

    Page 48 [It not only enveloped the body, but engulfed everything. It gradually enters the mouth to the nose, and most probably through the pores... Even inside the head, like pushing through the back of the skull. Although it doesn't hurt, it just feels disgusting. It feels like all my insides are being distorted.] [It's like changing from a larvae into a butterfly. The body being broken down and melted, and then taking on a new form.] [Please stop. I'm not a worm you know.] Shou frowned. [Oh, sorry. It's just that no matter how you look at the outside, there are just no traces of what happened.] Tetsuro thought looking at the change in Shou. The brown colored object that thrust into Shou widened as it melted, overturning all of his body. On the forehead is where the half round metal orb stuck. At first it looked like a mud man, but when the orb on the forehead stood out, the figure began to form into something more distinct. The proliferating cells seems to be hardening. The extra swelled area that dripped immediately disolves in the air and disappears. Immediately after, a strange humanoid figure stood there. The whole body is covered with something like a white shell, which gray tissue is being removed. Page 49 The shoulders, elbows and knees seems to have a thick armor. What was disntinguished from the face was that there is an antenna extending from the forehead. From below there a red light was released, as the brightness increases, it slowly turns into white. On both sides of the head where the ears was, the area where the mouth used to be, as well as the center of the belly, there was a shining metal orb similar to that on the forehead. It looks something like an enhancement suit, but having closer resemblance to a living thing. Is Shou still inside of this? or could it be.... While at a loss, Tetsuro thought, "it" is moving. The halo on the forehead came alive. A strong light was leaking from the space in between the metal orb and it's base. At the same time the orb started to emit a high oscillating sound. Immediately nothing can be heard and there remained a sense of discomfort in the tympanic membrane. The frequency may have risen to ultrasound. As if the sound injured [it], it slipped from the shore and fell to the swamp. [It was immediately after that those guys appeared.] Heavy footsteps from the woods can be heard- Heading towards Tetsuro who was looking at the swamp, a man with their face hidden with goggles and helmet appeared. And also a monster.

    Page 46 In this room you can hear the members of the theater club practicing their vocalization, which these two paid no attention to. [Don't worry] Tetsuro smiled. [Even if they heard it, nobody would think that it was a reality. Though it would be different if they had spies.] [No. It's just that it's embarrassing.] [Hey...] [I mean it's too far removed from reality.] Though it did not came out of his voice, Shou was saying [you're reading too much into SF] [In the first place, even if it was a living weapon, what is possible right now are biological virus. Do you think they are able to make monsters like that?] [Do you think it's impossible?] Tetsurou thought. [But there is no other explanation. Those guys and that creature called Gregole, they are most likely from the military who joined some sort of organization. Things about training and battle members, of even things like combat use Biotechnology, it's most likely a large organization.] They way Tetsuro speaks is like he is really serious. [Why would an organization like that appear here?] Page 47 [Having those kind of equipment, they might be able to find us.] -At that day, Shou and Tetsurou took a shortcut through the lake to go home. In those mountains, they thought they heard a big explosion, but is was something that descended. It was around 30 centimeters. After the dust settled, there was a round shaped object with 3 triangle. Shou who picked it up thought at first that it's something that looks like a part of a rotary engine, the metal part is only the outer casing, and it is clearly protecting something inside. There was a protrusion on the center of the opposite side. It was a half round big metal orb, sitting in a round pedestal. The shell is not separate, but directly connected to the inside. In order to get a better look at the object he took a little peek inside. You could see an enamel line covering a coil, and it looks like some sort of living object. Like some sort of dark grayish muscle, getting a clearer look there are horizontal ring segments. But there doesn't seem to be any signs of life. And then time seemed like it sopped for an instant. What is this, at that thought Shou touched the metal orb with his hands. There was a clicking sound, and the object started making a noise. There are steam like particles coming out of the object. In the next instant, the organism came alive. From the calm state is was in before , now it's suddenly full of life and started to crawl. The casing suddenly split open, and the thing turned into an amoeba like organism, reaching out to Shou violently.

    Page 44 [But you know Fukamachi-kun already has a girl he likes. It's the club president's sister, Segawa Mizuki] [Ah, is that so.] [By the way, this will be troubling.] Natsuki whispered to her to keep it a secret. [Mizuki, you see, she joined Student Council President Makishima-san, and is completely obliviously of it.] [Makishima you mean, that fine young man?] [Ah, you've seen him? Yup, that old man. He has a strong impact doesn't he. I don't know what's so good about him though. Anyway, when Mizuki comes, don't go letting that out. Fukamachi-kun is really weak to pressure, and can't seem to clearly say what he wants. So Noriko might have a chance.] [Yeah- but that's not it.] [I know. But let's cooperate okay. Although I am Mizuki's friend, it's CASE BY CASE. I have to say a little, otherwise it won't be interesting.] She just kept saying what she wants. However, she seems to have a foothold of things. [Biological weapons?] Shou let out a loud voice and I looked around. Page 45 <image of Natsuki introducing Noriko to Tetsuro and Shou>

    Page 42 Those people who come to Tokyo struggle, no matter how much I hear them speak, I have to keep reassembling the words in my head. With that, with just one gap, you get pushed in to that person's pace. Although there are those who have an unreserved attitude in my home town... The SF Club room is located at the end of the school building in a narrow room with a size of 6 mats. [Chief. I've brought the transfer student.] With Natsuki's voice, the big guy in glasses turned around. He has a physique, more or less, but doesn't seem to be doing any sports. [He is the club president Segawa Tetsuro. Then, this is-] [I'm Fukamachi Shou. ...ah, I'm not a member though.] The male student that Tetsuo was talking to lowered his head. He looks like a second year student. To say it positively he is cute, but to say it negatively, he looks like an undependable young man. But Noriko seem to notice something on Tetsuro. (This person is-) The name of the "Suspicious Suspect" that uncle was talking about, it was Segawa Tetsuro. [What's the matter?] Tetsuro put on a suspicious face. [No, it's nothing] Page 43 [What a dirty room, you're probably surprised right? Geez, it gets messy no matter what you do. The theme for this semester is to clean up the club room.] [Well, if we make a plan carefully-] Tetsuro is running away [Shou. Let me talk to you for a while.] [Hey! Stop running away. And here we have a new person, why don't you explain] [I'll leave that to you] [Really! You're not even doing anything.] Natsuki, sending the other two out, voices out unsatisfactorily. [Fukamachi-kun is not a member right. They seem to get along well.] [Yup. They've been an acquaintance for a long time.] Natsuki gave an meaningful look. [Do you have an interest in him?] [Eh? No it's not that.] [There's no point hiding it. When we saw Fukamachi-kun a while ago, didn't he had a spaced out look. It's a bit cute.] She was looking at Tetsuro, Noriko wanted to say, but she reconsidered. It might be better as there might be a misunderstanding. Also, if you keep touch with people around you, you might hear something.

    Page 40 And then it is a little later after the first day of transfer. During cleaning duty, the desk have started to close. Noriko was somewhat overwhelmed. In Tokyo, or rather in the school where a criminal is present, this is so much like the TV series [High School Rakugaki] or some sorts, with a bunch of guys smoking that you won't think that they are high schoolers -half of myself actually believed it to be like that. Even then, this is not Tokyo, no matter what kind of place the transfer was made, you would think that this is still the same place. From the moment she was born, Noriko has never left the place that she was born. Just based on physical appearance, there are a lot of male classmates of Noriko that looks a lot younger than her. Although it is not rare to be transferred in your third year, nobody asked for the reason. In any case, even if it feels cold, you'll get used to it eventually. It's just, at first, when being greeted in the Principals Office, the Student Council President- Makishima as he was called, he looks mature and probably older by 2 to 3 years, that's what I feel anyway. I wonder if he is special... Page 41 [Hey] There was a voice coming out of the female student [Ah... Yes, uhm....] Speaking of which, she hasn't introduced herself yet. [Taga Natsuki. Nice to meet you. Anyway, have you decided on which club to join?] [No...] [Are you interested in SF?] [SF? I don't know much about that stuff.] [But you read books right?] During my self introduction, I did remember mentioning an interest in reading books. I also said that Noriko also means [nothing special]. I don't need to join any club activity. I have to strongly refuse- if not for my goal, I don't really care much. While thinking on how to say this.... [We are from the SF club, right now, we don't have enough members. If it is alright with you, won't you come a take a look?] With that , Natsuki quickly stood up. In the end, I wasn't able to come up with a good way to refuse, there's nothing I can do I guess. (Wouldn't it be better to clearly say it at a time like this)

    Perhaps you meant poor Four? I never really found the story of Puru and Puru 2 to be tragic. Probably because at how lighthearted they wanted to portray Gundam ZZ. I know it's supposed to be spelled Ple, but that just sounds awful. I like it spelled Puru better, probably Plu, but not Ple. It's like saying someone's name as bleh.

    It's actually pinned in the main guyver forum. Though the way it was captured was a bit crude as it was Jess taking a picture of each individual page in jpg format. So you might need a bit of a work to be able to read it in your commute. Is this no longer available in the local bookstore?

    I'm thinking if I should translate this by page by page, or should I translate the whole chapter before posting. On one hand, if I post this by page, the time in-between post would be a lot shorter, but it will be a pain to follow the story especially when the good stuff are happening. On the other hand, if I post this by chapter, the story will be easier to follow but it would take me a long time to finish one whole chapter. In any case, I just finished 2 pages and still considering if I should post it now or just finish the whole chapter before I post. It normally doesn't take me long to translate, but I have priorities that limits my time. This particular 2 page for example, just took me a few minutes, probably 15 minutes if you include the editing. But I'm not sure when I'll have the chance to find time to translate again.

    That's actually a good choice if you want to know more about the UC universe in general. Skip to Z Gundam only if you are interested in the rivalry between Amuro and Char. 0083 actually leads directly to Z Gundam. Animation-wise, 0083 is top notch as even my brother who is not interested in Anime whatsoever really liked 0083.

    Speaking of Z Gundam, one of the reasons why I liked it so much is also because of the second opening theme. Mizo no Hoshi e Ai wo Komete was also composed by Neil Sedaka. Celebrating Gundam's 40th anniversary, the original singer of the song will release an album covering various songs from the Gundam Franchise. Here is one of the re-arranged version: Despite her age, Moriguchi Hiroko is still lovely as ever.

    As far as I understand it, Newtypes are the "new type" of humans who have evolved due to their migration of space. This is what Zeon Zum Deikun has been advocating, which the Zabi family twisted. But newtypes are not the Deux Ex Machina of the franchise (to some degree), as even the strongest Newtype ends up tragically. They are mentioned most of the time because of how they are very good pilots, but the only time that they manifest physically is during critical events. One example is by Amuro from Char's Counterattack. You'll have to watch that to see what I mean. Z Gundam explores the newtypes in more detail as they introduced the enhanced humans, people who are made into newtypes artificially, though with some psychological side effect.

    Rising of a Shield Hero

    The thing is, he is supposed to be stuck in a fantasy world based on a game. Motoyasu, Ren and Itsuki have already played a game similar to this prior to their transportation to this world, which is why they have the advantage. But despite their knowledge, nothing beats the raw hard work that Naofumi put through to improve himself.
