    Last week "Steel-Winged Pegasus" notified us on discord about a new translation of Cots 1 available at Amazon and at Barnes and Noble.

    As she has bought it recently the translation didn't turn out quite as expected such as Lafiel being Lafier....

    Hopefully it's going to be just minor differences.

    As long as everything is consistent and they get all novels done. I would be very happy.
    Tokyopop as not consistent at all. Anyhow, I think they are making a better job overall. But I admit I'm not too happy about a lot of those liberties or choices. Like the Kryuno now called "compuwatch". By all means it's not a watch wrist-comp would be much better.

    I know their other translations are generally good except for typos and grammar blunders. They were easy to spot but there were times I had to wonder whether it could have other meanings/reasons.

    "Compuwatch" sounds like something Apple would come out with...so now we know the truth...the Abh are really behind Apple! Laughing

    All joking aside though, I expect since the anime has been out fans would be wanting better.
