Alright, I’m back!
I’ve been super busy lately so I sort of neglected this stuff, so I figured since I’m now subbing Robotics;Notes with WhyNot, I’d resume work on Steins;Gate stuff too.
The current list of projects I will be working on is as follows:
Steins;Gate – Braunian Motion of Love and Hate Volume 2 (Manga)
Steins;Gate – Theory-filled Heart of the Sweet Honey ♥ (Manga- Kurisu Romance)
Steins;Gate – Temporal Romance of the Future Honey (Manga- Suzuha Romance)
Steins;Gate – Stardust Duplet (Manga- Mayuri Romance)
Steins;Gate – Epigraph of the Closed Curve (Novel/Drama CD)
Steins;Gate – Pandora of Eternal Return (Novel?/Drama CD)
When I’ll be releasing these, and in what order, I can’t say. But I’ll be prioritizing Epigraph of the Closed Curve and Perpetual Recurrence of Pandora, have a preview translation of an extract from the former:

The man standing with a face full of regret is Barrel Titor, no it’s Daru-the-Super-Hacker, Hashida Itaru
(If I could redo my life, I would want to do it)
No, just building a Time machine, going back and shouting his old self into rehabilitation would be enough for him.
(At least, I’d stop myself from doing stupid things. Hasty things. I’d pay more attention.)
(Childhood me, don’t eat that chocolate, don’t touch those Potato Chips and other stuff.)
(Juvenile me, don’t eat 2 or 3 lots Cup-Ramen for each meal, however tasty they are.)
(Adolescent me, Eating is limited to thrice a day! Not Beef Bowls or Pizza or Hamburgers five, six or seven times a day!)
“Shit! Hold out, my weakened heart. Just a bit more, just a bit… Please…”
He’s a lot slimmer than he was 20 years before, but due to the folly of his youth, a great toll was taken on his ageing body.
Just going up the stairs like this makes his heart nearly burst, and his throat goes “hyu-hyu-” as it demands fresh oxygen.
Regardless, he had to run to the top of this ruined building. The elevator is broken.
“Ugh, this pathetic body of mine…!”
Daru finally arrives at a platform and stops to catch his breath before striking a cool line.
From the pitch-black darkness before him his beloved daughter arrives. He flails his hands wildly in the air.
“Dad, stop trying to show off, get going already.”
“Stop being such a manchild already, you’re at a respectable age.”
What a Daughter she is!
Even though this is likely their last farewell, she still lectures him.
He stops tightly holding the hands of his beloved girl, Suzuha.
Going ahead and clasping his hands behind his back, Daru starts cursing those words.
Come to think of it, when did he start acting this way?
It was probably the influence of his old friend, the one that spouted the childish phrases all the time.
Even though he always said things like “Damn it Okarin, that’s embarrassing”, he was awestruck when he realized that the words suited him too.
“I’ll be 50 years old soon, yet I’m now a manchild like him?”
While laughing at himself for this, he remembered that’s why he loved his old friend after all.
He decided to himself that this was all to honor the memory of his dear old friend.
His dead friend.
I thank you for your patience and apologize for the long wait, but I’m back now.
