Shoushimin Series

Postby manlyflower » Thu Jul 30, 2015 5:08 am

Hi everyone. I'd like to introduce you guys to a new project I'm considering working on in the future.

I'm still translating Hyouka 5 at the moment, but I wanted to put this thread up early to gauge everyone's interest in it ahead of time. If the reception is good, then I'll most likely start on this one right after.

The Shoushimin Series
or "The Petit Bourgeois Series"

Note: This is actually the manga cover, but it's so cute.

It's written by a certain Honobu Yonezawa, known mostly around here as the author of Hyouka. There are currently four volumes but the author has expressed interest in adding a final "Winter" volume in the future. Similar to Hyouka, it's essentially a low-stakes, high school mystery series following a boy and girl as they desperately try to live modest, quiet lives hidden in the background. Unfortunately for them, mystery and excitement always seem to find them regardless.

I briefly translated the prologue of the first novel, so you can check out the page here:
