Tamalog... or not  
Official notice to say I'm quitting translating Kisulog entries by Tama and Miyacchi.

It's not because I have lost interest in them; I'm in another country, and I'm looking for a job, and I really don't have time. And when I do my best and find time, no one reads it anyway. Or at least that's what appears from the comment count.

Here's serious advice: if you're reading a translation PLEASE TAKE FIVE SECONDS TO THANK THE TRANSLATOR. They can read it, they don't need to translate it, yet they spend their time and skill (translating is a PROFESSIONAL SKILL, it's not easy) so that other people can read that text. If you read it and then discuss about it with your friends on facebook or twitter, the translator isn't going to magically feel that you've appreciated it. I'm obviously not saying this for myself anymore since I won't translate (I might update Miyata's and Tama's Myojo interviews when the book comes out, but not right away and definitely not Senga's), but please do TRY TO LEAVE A COMMENT TO TRANSLATORS, or subbers, whoever they are. Please appreciate that they're using their time and skill to do something they don't need, just to be useful to the fandom - just a tiny bit of gratitude seems to me the least thing you can do.

Although I haven't been able to read any recent translations lately, I've enjoyed some of your older works! Thank you for every translation you've done.
Good luck in your job search! :D Ganbattene!

so your best!!!!~with your work, in everything!!
thank you for your hard work, for all translations that you have done!~

and, maybe, I'm sorry for myself that I haven't left reaction usually, from time to time only -_- I read all Tama-chan's kisulogs with your translation, and didn't do the really simple thing -_- but...I just want to say from you and all translators/subbers...that you all do really great job, spend your own time for so much people...Even if I don't say it, I really respect all of you~
