Sashihara Rino’s Gyakutenryoku translated to English

Sashihara Rino Gyakutenryoku English translation ebook

Hey guys, it’s me Kenneth Uy (@missingno15) and if you have been listening to our podcasts recently, you’ll know that I have been working on a super special secret great delicious project and wanted you guys to look forward to it. The wait ends here!

Today I present to you something that has been 2 months in the making. 2 months of me using much as my spare time as possible to translate Sashihara Rino’s Gyakutenryoku, and then port that into .epub, .pdf, and .mobi format for everyone else to read.

Translating Gyakutenryoku to English

It was quite the journey and to be honest, I’m glad that it’s over. Most of my free time was spent thinking about these translations and constantly pushing myself to push for the deadline that I had set for myself. The deadline I set for myself was actually 3 weeks ago. It’s a strange feeling. I had spent so much time on this for the past 2 months and being able to translate an entire book from Japanese to English is, in itself, an amazing feat. Yet I don’t feet like I did anything amazing.

Nevertheless, within that time, I learned a lot about Sasshi, how I should approach future projects of this scale, how to properly collaborate with others, how to make an ePub book from a template, and how far I can stretch my own personal boundaries.

Once you are finished reading the book, make sure to tweet at @345__chan with the hashtag #Gyakutenryoku with your thoughts on the book in your native language!

Without further ado, please enjoy Sasshi’s Gyakutenryoku.

  1. Wow, crazy effort! And so much appreciated. As a Sasshi fan reading her book is a dream come true, especially seeing so many other members and idols seemingly picking it up as a reference “idol biz 101” book. Seeing as this is translated and the best show ever Sashihara no Ran is being subbed I’m a very lucky fan to have other people do such a great job.

    Now to read this.

    • Thank you for taking interest! Yes, I completely agree with you 100%, I love translations! I know that’s weird coming from the person who did the translation, but I can totally understand the work that others put in to make this kind of stuff more accessible to other people.

  2. This is amazing. Thanks a lot!

  3. I can’t thank you enough. Translation is hard work, you did an amazing job. Well done!

  4. Dude you are amazing. International Sasshi fans owe you a huge debt of gratitude. I want to buy a shirt from your store. Do you still have any more of the “NO IDOL” Sasshi shirts? Many thanks my man!

    • Thank you and you’re welcome! Unfortunately, the NO IDOL shirt was a shirt that was sold from one of our affiliates, NIhongogo and it seems that their store is gone. Try contacting them to see if Nihongogo still has that shirt.

      However, what you can do instead is buy our NSK t-shirts – after all it is a silhouette of Sasshi doing wotagei (;

      Don’t forget to tell your fellow comrades all about this!

  6. Thank you SO much! It’s like a dream came true! Really appreciate your great work. As a fellow translator I understand how hard it must have been. Your dedication gave me inspiration to continue my work too. Once again, thanks A LOT!

    • You’re welcome and thank you! Yeah, it felt like a mental workout and I’m pretty exhausted by it but I’m just as excited as you are to see it go live. I’m also glad that I was able to inspire you, 48Group fans can never have enough translators and please continue the good work!

      Be sure to let your fellow comrades know!
