So with Viz translating Astra starting next week, I might not need to be so detailed with my summaries anymore.

I'm actually considering subscribing to Viz for it.

I might look into subscribing to VIZ, as well. At least I hope it's even possible and not blocked like CR.

Apparently Viz needs to be active in your country to view it or something. Fortunately the case with NZ.

What about with a VPN?

 

In any case, it'll be nice if people can distribute them around the net.

So I just read Chapter 1.

I think the translation is alright. It still reads like a Shinohara work, and because the writing style is fairly simple, I don't need to worry too much about the poetic stuff being screwed up.

 

That said, I think that line from the flashback should've been done like this:

"When you're in despair, be strong."

 

Perhaps it's the Dangan Ronpa taste, but I prefer "despair" over "hopeless" for 絶望 (zetsubou)

 

Not sure if I like Viz's logo for the series.

But in any case, looking forward to next week.

Chapter 2 now translated and free, for those who can access

http://www.viz.com/s...r-2/4493?read=1

 

The translation continues to be up to standard. No excessive swearing, rest assured.

I had the same excitement as I did when I read the original chapter, learning of the planet-hopping premise of the series and all.

 

A reference to the Anywhere Door (of Doraemon fame) were lost in translation though

I don't understand why, but Chapter 3 of Astra is already available:

https://www.viz.com/...r-3/4494?read=1

 

Apart from the Luca Javelin being renamed to the Luca Lance for some pointless (and counterproductive in future) reason, I don't have a problem with the translation as far as I recall.

 

Ah, the trials and tribulations of being a Bossun-like character. No one respects you as a leader.

 

For those wondering, no, despite taking Himeko's old position of being the Tsukkomi, Quitterie will not overtake Aries' role as the heroine. Heck, it'll be 1000 years before she can be as awesome as our highly esteemed Hime-neesama

As it turns out, Viz's Astra is currently on a bi-weekly schedule, Tuesday and Thursday.
So here's Chapter 4
 
AKA the chapter when we get a bit more acquainted with our characters. And when the mystery element starts layering on.
 
If I have to critcise, it is that there's one typo in the translation, and rather than "can't know", it's better to use "can't figure out".
ie "stuff you can't figure out are stuff you can't figure out" That would've made more sense.
 
Otherwise, translation is OK.
 
---
 
Also, nobody else here can read Viz's free chapters? Really?
I'm lonely here! Will I have to take desperate measures or something just that you all can see them as well?

While I can talk about Viz English Chapter 5 being out, I feel maybe I should address the lonely problem first.

In light of that, let's try this treat from me: full screenshots of English Chapter 1, all pages:

 

 

Remember to zoom in, feedback will be welcome


 

They're not the best quality, but it's better than nothing

For some reason, chapter 8 was released today instead of Tuesday.

I haven't read gamria's summaries, so I don't know what will happen soon. We'll see how off my predictions are. But it's been an enjoyable read so far.  ;)

@Diasou Great to see you again
 
Chapter 8... well, a gamble had to be taken with Funicia's B5 line. The original Japanese here was pretty ambiguous as well, not to mention there are suspicions among readers if she misheard anything.
But even there, Kanata assumed the worst case scenario as well.
 
 
Once the crew lands on Planet Shummoor in Ch 12, I'll give my speculation on the saboteur and the stranding as a whole.
