Anonymous asked: Hello! Sorry to bother you, but I'd like to know (if you cans answer this, of course) if you were comissioned to translate all of the "The Pint-Sized Detective" doujin's pages, or only those 15 pages? Thanks!

Hello, anon!

To answer your question, yes, it was for the entire doujin. Which is what normally happens, since most would rather get the whole thing translated I guess than just random parts. So, yes, what I posted was just a sample. The doujin around 35 pages and something-ish long, I think?

Oh my god.  My childhood.  It’s……….yes.

XD I can’t not re-blog this oh my god

Huh, I don’t remember this for some  reason! Maybe there’s some old stuff I just never watched? Fun to see though, hard to believe the VAs did it. XD

XSEED Blog - The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky


[What went down with Trails in the Sky?]

-Hurdles in Programming-

When we first announced The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky for Windows PC last year, we expected a project as quick as our PC Ys titles. While Ys I&II Chronicles+ had a few frustrating challenges, we launched quickly, and Ys: The Oath In Felghana and Ys Origin were “cake,” according to our programmer. We expected to have this project out into the world as early as December 2013 with little to no worry.

That…obviously didn’t happen. Now with a confirmed July 29th, 2014 launch on Steam and GOG (with the hope of announcing other distribution outlets shortly), this day didn’t come without some massive overhauls on the programming end. Without further ado, straight from our programming wiz Sara herself, here are just some of the things she’s done to make this game not only playable, but the most definitive version of Trails in the Sky to come out yet:

This guy is getting into Welcome to Nightvale and it’s best to stay the fuck away. He’s a bad guy. What kind of bad guy?

The kind that has been lying since for-fucking-ever and has a pattern he follows in every fandom he can get in. The kind that blames all of the abusive, terrible things he’s done on mental illnesses though his diagnoses never remain the same. The kind that has done really terrible things to people (one survivor of his abuse/cult shit describes his shamming of her body and jesus, massive trigger warning for awful body shamming). 

Andy is also transphobic: he states he was assigned female at birth, but identifies as a cis straight man since he’s totally not trans, as us trans men are somehow not as man of a man as he is.

Not that it matters to him that he doesn’t ID as anything related to the LGBT community, because he’ll be happy to appropriate our pain and suffering for his cause shamelessly.

There’s much more crap you can find out. This guy is thirty now and is still targeting younger people (you may have seen him posting his number in places telling you to call him if you feel unhappy, which is probably one of the more dangerous things you can do.

You can read more about him here:

"And I’m prouder of that than if I’d simply been ‘good’ from the beginning": Why I Think Andy Blake is (still) Dangerous

ATF links This one is super useful as it has a whole bunch of links to the warning blogs.

Primer on Andy Blake

The warning that went out to the Teen Wolf fandom that he also tried to weasle in on.

You can also find more info on him in the andythanfiction and thanfiction tags on tumblr. Don’t try “Andy Bake” or “Andrew Blake”, however, as that’s the name of a famous porn director. Fun fact, he picked that name to make it harder to trace him, so that’s not sketch at all.

So stay safe. He’s a bad guy with a terrible record. Don’t let his shitty art copy pasting/painting over fool you.

This guy is serious bad news. Reading his background triggers the fuck out of me. Be as wary of him as you would be of Strex.

Hahahaha oh my god Andy Thanfiction is getting into Night Vale? 

For those who aren’t familiar with him, the deeper you get into this dude’s background, the weirder it gets. He’s manipulative and abusive, hugely creepy, and somehow doesn’t get that the internet makes it very easy to make sure his shady-ass past follows him everywhere.

He tries to parley BNF-dom off of having written a long-ass Harry Potter fic, Dumbledore’s Army and the Year of Darkness. (It sucks.) So you might recognize that.

Like, he tried this “hello internet it me!” shit with the SPN fandom a while ago, apparently clueless that a good chunk of the internet knows him as “Oh my god it’s that guy from Tentmoot”.

Yes. That guy.

There’s some good writeups on that drama floating around fandom_wank, and someone whose name I can’t recall has written about her horrifying experiences with this creep. (The tl;dr to them is that Andy Thanfiction is probably the most emotionally abusive human I have heard of, and his behavior does not stop at the body-shaming mentioned in the OP. Oh God does it ever not.)

Don’t be friends with this dude. He has not changed in the last ten years. He is an enormous creep. Stay far the fuck away. He has tried (half-assedly) to conceal his shady, shady past, but I’m pleased to see that other people who remember his other antics refuse to let that happen.

Oh, and he’s not thirty. He’s more like thirty-six now.

And still creepin on vulnerable teenagers.

Let me show you some links about this motherfucker…

Archived fandomwank wiki article

2004 Fandom Wank article (please note, this was written before Andy’s trans status was known / before he came out / fucked if I know, so all the pronouns are wrong, but it’s a good writeup).

Tag for this person on Fandom Wank. (Tagged under prior nick of “Victoria Bitter”, but yeah, it’s him.)

Dude is fucked up.

I think he’s born 1983, so he’s thirty turning thirty one.

I left out most of the details (but included links to find this information) to avoid him claiming that this is another fandom witch hunt.

I have the feeling that he decided to take a stab at sneaking into WTNV at this moment because of the recent problems with an undeserved call out. I wanted to point to the massive amount of info rather than write more and risk getting any detail wrong (that is, undocumented) and having that be used as a deflection later on.

Whoops, I’m a dip >< I was referring to his 2008 bio where he claimed to be 30 then. 

I figured that it might be useful to some to provide links to his history pre-Tumblr — I don’t know if he has claimed “omg witch hunt” before over things like that?

Anyway, when I see callouts of him on here they often skip the weird, fascinating history of his behavior in the LOTR and HP fandoms, so I thought I’d slip a couple links to writeups from that time in. The more you know and all that.

Thanks for the killer write-up :D It covers his recent history very well, and I don’t think there’s such a thing as too much information when you’re pointing out a fandom creep.

Not a dip. The details change so much it’s hard to keep track.

I absolutely agree on the more info thing. I believe his current schtick is to claim he’s changed and that people should forget about his past.

It would be smart to sneak in now and go “see, you’re treating me like how you treated that one actually super innocent member of fandom that ran them off” (not including their name; it would be easy to figure it out as it has been a recent and large issue in the fandom, but since they deleted their ao3 and tumblr, I don’t want to strengthen the link between their psued and the fandom wank).

He’ll claim to be a martyr no matter what, but I’d rather let people who know him and his claims better be the ones to do the vast majority of the speaking as I don’t want to make their work harder by accidentally introducing something that he can use as woobie fodder. Hence me mostly just linking to things like AFT, which is a huge info dump. And also reblogging you since you included more info.

Gametech’s new series of “WaSaBi” 3DS cases. These all feature transparent cases to allow your 3DS’s color to show beneath the traditional Japanese designs. As always with WaSaBi, they’re really pretty. The option to let my blue 3DS show through might make these my favorite yet.

Although, of course, it would look weird on top of my Slime-faced 3DS.

When Marnie Was There



Because I seem to be getting quite a bit of negativity due to my earlier post regarding Anna and Marnie not being lesbians, as if it’s my own personal opinion that they are not, I just wanted to clear it up once and for all.

I’m also getting a lot of inbox from people asking me to enlighten them.
