Hi there! I was just curious since I wanted to start reading high speed! (which thank you for translating!) and I was wondering is there anyway to read it with the manga? Or is it like a story and there is no art too it? Sorry if this is an annoying question I tried googling but nothing answered me :) thank you very much!
High Speed! is a light novel, so it’s all text, but there are a few full-page illustrations to go with the chapters. For my translations, I add in the pictures where they ‘are’ in the text of the chapter.
If you’d like to read it in Japanese, there are scans of volume 1 here. I haven’t found any scans for volume 2. If you have money to spare, I highly recommend buying the volumes!
okay a little update on hs!2 translation status, last time I said it’d take two weeks at the very least, and well, two weeks have passed now
chapter 12 is 40 pages long and I still have 12 pages left to translate, but I’ve been limiting myself to about 1 page/day on purpose because of university stuff *coughcough*thatstupidthesis*coughcough*
my fall break is coming up in the middle of next week and I’ll be totally pausing translating in that week and a half, the deadline for the thesis is nov. 17th but I really want to have it finished before break ends so I can slap it into shape in the remaining 2 weeks with my counseling teacher
also, editing the chapters is the bigger pain and I’m already certain I won’t have enough mental power for that until I’m done with the thesis
so basically, a miracle needs to happen for chapter 12 to be done anytime soon. but I might end up translating chapter 13 (which is only 10 pages long) sooner than I get around to editing chapter 12, in which case I might be publishing them with only 1-2 days’ difference and then I’ll be finally done (plus the afterword but that’s less than a day’s work)
tl;dr: no new chapter until sometime after nov. 17th
