Mononoke Mansion - Room 401 Akaname (English Translation)

Yunoha: Okitsu Kazuyuki
Manager: Yamagishi Haruo

Spicy’s Notes:

(1) All righty, listen up! Quick youkai lesson! An akaname is a “filth”, “aka”, “licking”, “name”, demon that supposedly likes to lick the grossness off of unclean bathrooms.
(2) This parodies that, but it’s not the floor Yunoha is licking in the bathroom.
(3) That being said, if you’re listening along for the first time I would recommend headphones. Big. Noise cancelling. Headphones. While it’s not explicit, it’s definitely in the solid R range.
(4) Usual disclaimers: translation is subject to typos, stuff I might have misheard,out of control SFX, and other random acts of formatting.

Are we ready!? Go go go!!

Mononoke Mansion - Room 206 Makura-gaeshi
Kochou (CV: Toyonaga Toshiyuki)

Release Date: 8/6/14
Available: animate and Stellaworth

The yokai in Room 206 is a makura-gaeshi (aka) a Pillow Flipping demon.

He appears to be a 14-15 year old boy. And, he’s a spoiled little boy who wants to sleep together with the heroine.

He gives her a present of a Yes/No pillow that, when flipped to Yes, will indicate that, “It’s a day that he can do anything he wants to her!”

Everytime she has it flipped to No, he’ll flip it over Yes without permission.

When sleeping together he glues himself to her and doesn’t let go.

His favorite thing is Matarashi dango.

Waiting for my ipod to charge so I can proofread my translation for vol. 1 so I thought I’d take a closer peak at who’s behind door number two and look at this little shit.

The fact that the ALA shared this link is so gloriously bitter and angry and I love it.

Is there a portmanteau for that? Angritter? Bangry? 

Amazon is searching for all kinds of ways to get little chunks of change out of readers, isn’t it?

The thing is, people are likely already paying that $120 through taxes to their public library and guess what one of the things we provide is?

An all you can read subscription for Kindle books.

Better yet, we have the stuff that doesn’t come on Kindle. And, guess what? If you want other stuff that we don’t have, we will do our damned best to get it for you.

I would like to ask for you help with something: I was showing my sister images of the Sakamakis and Mukamis, when I told her how tall Yuma is she said "He's like a crane!", I've been trying to think of how he'd react to that, but I can't come up with anything...


(*≧▽≦)ノシ)) LOLOL. A CRANE!? (A crane as in construction or the bird?) Hehh, are you asking me for help? (~˘▾˘)~ Okie *cracks knuckles*


Yuma: Oi! Just ‘cause I’m tall doesn’t mean I’m like some damn crane! There’s something wrong with your eyes. Seriously!!



And Simply Because I’m Awful:


tags: omg + being tall just means that he's super-sized alllll over + we take our doS vampires seriously +

If they find out, they’ll kill you. If you apologize, they’ll kill you. There’s only one way to survive. Take responsibility by going out with all six of them without the others finding out.

I got this stupidly cute Apollon microfiber cloth as an impulse buy and EEE I think I need like six more. It makes my scanner and gaming screens all pretty.

I really liked the first volume of Mononoke Mansion so I’m working on translating it but… How to describe some of these sound effects? That is the question.

tags: it's cracky + and wonderful + already preordered the next disk +



Oh no! The Kamigami no Asobi Anime Anthology got pushed back again!! The release date is now 8/25


That’s twice now. I really hope there’s going to be some shirtless Apollon in there as reward for our patience.

Since he’s already shirtless in god form, it better be some other outfit. And a few of the others as well need to be shirtless too.

I’m telling myself that at least I’ll get my copy in a hurry when it DOES get released. FromJapan has already been very good to me.
