Job Application-Proofreader

Post by Lux_Aeterna on Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:36 pm

Hello,
I'd like to introduce myself as Lux. Lux0601 on chatango. I was notified that this place is recruiting, via Tohob and BlackWingAccelerator AND JACKINTHEBOX (caps). Therefore, all credit to them. I'm a biology major at university, but this year has been quite lax for me. I used to edit pages from my friends , now published , book on her equestrian experiences. I figure proofreading will also help me to increase my literary skills both syntactically and grammatically as well, so why not. I don't have photoshop , therefore I can not edit Razz . Regardless, I hope, to be hired.
Also random information I suppose : I own a violin and piano, can play on both. I enjoy reading, I'm delving into philosophy now. Although I don't read much manga I watch anime, and I'm taking a liking to madoka, will probably watch serial experiment lain. I have a MAL. I love tea. I await my examination and tests via the head proofreader. Until then,

Cheers~
Nila.

Well, have some fun with this and see what you make of it.
Spoiler:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Public announcement.The schedule of the duel between the current

student committee and the new student committee will be decided by

the election administration as below.
-July 25th:general affair battle
August 1st:secretary battle
August 8th:treasurer battle
August 15th:vice-president battle
August 22th:president battle
(All start from 1:00 pm)

(white text:Finally the "election" 's starting day~!!)

-Normal students are forbidden from watching the battles in order to

protect the security.
[2]
-Sheesh,announcement- Although it is about whether the school be

destroyed or not
-Such thick heads those council members have
[3]
-So what now,Kurokami? It's time
-How are your reliable partners?
[4]
-Secretary Akune and Treasurer Kikaijima are attending former

president Hinokage and Aniki's training course
-That devilize training

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
02~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Don't ask me what you already knew
-Haha! My bad.But is it okay for you to ditch?
-Aren't you in the middle of the training for the president battle?
[2]
-...They asked me to cheer for their shares as well
-Well,I can't let Zekichi fight alone,too.
[3]
-I see I see.So
-Where is that Zenkichi-kun now?
[4]
-He decided to take another training because the devilize training

won't give any effect after a week
-But doesn't his absent now mean he is scared?He said he was scared

at the underground,didn't he?
[5]
-...If so then just let him be.Maguro-kun said that,too
-I still think that losing the general affair battle by default is the best

idea after all
[6]
-Well
-May be that's right,Mom.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
03~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-But too bad
(shirt:Unite as one! Victory for sure!! The student committee)
(white text:Arrived at the front line!! Those eyes hold no fear!!)
(small sfx:pant pant pant)
-I don't feel anything this time!!
(chapter 67's title:We are the student committee)
[2]
-Waahh!I told you not to use the student committee's room for

changing!!
-Nah
-First you should do something about that shirt
[3]
-Oh,I made that T-shirt for him the day before yesterday
-So that's your sense!!
[4]
-Oh that's right.Thanks Mom! This is really great.It makes my spirit

up to max!
-His mother's sense
-He likes it---!?
[5]
[6]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
04~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Hmph.Just barely for both T-shirt and time
-Zenkichi
[2]
-So how's it? You didn't take Aniki's training,let alone the devilize

training,but your secret training or something
-You won't say its result is also barely,do you?
[3]
-Whoa!
-I didn't expect such stupid question from you
[4]
-This one week I have taken a training from someone even greater

than Maguro-san
-What you should do now is not worrying but preparing for my

victory's celebration!!
[5]
-A trainer that even greater than Aniki...? This school has a person

like that?
-It doesn't look like a joke if you have that much confidence but...
[6]
-I see.Then it's fine
-Let's go to the acceptance.Let's teach those Minus
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
05~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-We're the student committee

(white text:Student committee's battle suit)
(bigger white text:RED model)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
06~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Student committee election hall
[2]
-Ah.You're late,Medaka-chan
-Shame on you.The rule said you must be in time,didn't it?
[3]
-...Kumagawa
-You.You're alone?
[4]
-Yeah right.I'm so unpopular,right?
-The other Minus-es are all doing sea bathing or something to enjoy

the holiday
(sfx:turning page)
[5]
-By the way,yay!
-Hitoyoshi-sensei.Found ya!!
[6]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
07~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-I was shocked that you ran away from me the other time.Aha
-The truth is I was so excited from being able to meet you that I

came here 5 hours ago
[2]
-By the way,I went to buy porns with Emukae-chan in the end.But I

found a book with a girl looks just like you.Next time I'll bring it here

so that you can see it for yourself!
[3]
-...Okay
-Well,next time.
[4]
-Wait a sec,Kumagawa.Turn your face this way.
-Does being alone here mean you will participate in the general affair

battle by any chance?
[5]
-It's not "by any chance" because I planned to do it,Medaka-chan
-I dreamed of becoming a general affair a long time ago
[6]
-So today I'll be in your care,Zenkichi-chan
-Let's have a serious and fair battle!
[7]
-As expected,they don't have a proper formation...
-In the end,not giving away the first battle turned out to be the worst

choice.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
08~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
[2]
-Someone like you...How could you turn out to be like this?
-Kumagawa!!
[3]
-? Why are you angry,Medaka-chan?
-Because you can't fight me anymore? Or because Zenkichi-chan is on

a pinch right now?
[4]
-Those are included but...I'm asking you about everything!

Everything about you is irritating!!
-I can't understand even a single bit of what you're thinking!!
[5]
-Massacring class 13!? Killing all elites!? Why do you want to do those

things!?
-The world peace can't be archived by doing those things,right!?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
09~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Whether elite or abnormal,they're all humans,just like us!?
-They feel happy,they feel sad!You can't hurt them like that!
-Why can't you understand just that simple thing!?
[2]
-For that Kurokami to be upset like this...
-No,may be her calmness got exploded after knowing that he's

aiming for Hitoyoshi...?
[3]
-If you can't,then don't force yourself to understand
-Medaka-chan
[4]
-What...
[5]
-But why did I become like this,right? Hmph
-Now think about it,it's such strange that I haven't thought about it
[6]
[7]
-Yeah right.For example
-Someone said "One's life is plus-minus-zero"
[8]
-Saying even an elite feels sad and happy or saying an happy human

also passed that amount of hardship
-They are all that meaning.So I presume that he wants to say

everybody is equal.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
10~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-But the one who said "One's life is plus-minus-zero"
-must be a plus
[2]
-Because he was happy,he could say a phrase like a philosopher like

that
-At least we minus couldn't think that because there were good

things,all bad things can all become nothing

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
11~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-It's nothing.I just want all happy and plus people
-to have a taste of our feeling
[2]
-...That must also be a lie,right?
-You just want to cling to that lie
[3]
-...Right
-It must be so
[4]
-Anyway,I won't fight you,Medaka-chan.Because I hate you
-The other minus will take the president battle
[5]
-So Medaka-chan just have to stand there and watch me pinning

Zenkichi-chan to the floor
-Closely and carefully
[6]
-...Kumagawa!
-Because of that you
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
12~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-It's time now so let me begin
-First,I'm deeply appreciate you for coming all the way here in spite

of your business
[2]
-Please allow me to introduce myself.I'll be in charge of the student

committee this time.I'm the Election management division's vice-

chairman,2nd year Class 13,Choujabaru Tokemichi
-I'm glad to work with both sides even for just this one summer
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
13~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-....It has been a long time,2nd year Choujabaru
-Since April's election,isn't it?
[2]
-My my,Kurokami-sama
-I'm terribly honored that you still remember someone like me
[3]
-As you see,the election management division,unlike the student

committee or the discipline committee,only works in shadow.So we

truly want you to forget about us once the election is over...
[4]
-Moreover,I didn't think that I can be in charge of your election for a

2nd time like this
-I swear upon the pride of a member of the election management

division that I'll give you fair judgements.But I'm afraid that because

of this tension,I may have some incompetences so please let me

know.
[5]
-Of course Kumagawa-sama,too.If you have any discontent
-I'll be glad if you let me hear about your thinking
[6]
-Hmph.You say discontent
-Being said so suddenly is just too..
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
14~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
[2]
-What's the meaning of this idea,Kumagawa-sama?
[3]
-No I just want to test your qualification of being the one in

charge.And you passed it well
-Nice to work with you,Choujabaru-kun
[4]
-...Finally,you guys
-For nobody but Choujabaru-kun to be the referee
[5]
-The truth is I was worry about the chairman interfering with the

judge
-But if it's Choujabaru-kun,there's no need for that
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
15~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Just like his name,strict person like that is rare now
-No pressure can affect his judgement
-It'll be perfectly fair!Impossibly impartial!That's how he'll manage

this election for us.
[2]
-Now thinking about it,Choujabaru-kun is Unzen-kun's only male

friend,isn't he?
-Oh.May be they're getting along because they all prefer rules to

human
[3]
-But in other ways
-There'll be no recovery for us if we lose here
[4]
-No matter whether class 13 is massacred or the school is

destroyed.If class minus 13 wins
-2nd year Choujabaru will definitely choose them to be the student

committee without any hesitation...
[5]
[6]
-It's fine,Medaka-chan
-So we just have to win,right?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
16~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-It'll be easier for me if Kumagawa is my opponent.Much more easier

to deal with than Shiranui or Emukae
-So Medaka-chan,you can just be impossibly cocky and solidly calm

as usual
[2]
-Zenkichi...
[3]
-Hey,Kumagawa..I don't care about what you're spilling all over here
-I don't know and do not want to know why you're doing these or

why you became like this
[4]
-You,too.Don't think that people will understand you,cheeky
-You can just lose and being kicked out of this school without being

known as the way you are
[5]
-But because of that
-I want to say something to you
[6]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
17~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-One's life is plus
[2]
[3]
-Then let's start the first battle of the student committee election,the

general affair's battle
-By the way,please keep in mind that this election is based on

Kurobako cram school 's rules
[4]
-It's just using the Edo period's regulation as it was it's really

impossible.So I'll arrange the rules with my self-desicion
-Kurokami-sama,Kumagawa-sama,do you have any objection?
[5]
-No objection
[6]
-No objection
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
18~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Excellent
-Further,in case there be injury or death,all will be deal as

accident.Do you have any objection?
[2]
-No objection
[3]
-No objection
[4]
-Excellent.Then first,Kumagawa-sama,who is the challenger,please

choose the form of the battle.
[5]
-The election management division has prepared 13 forms of battle

for the election this time.Of course those are all based on Kurobako's

rules.
-Kumagawa-sama,please choose one of these 13 cards as you like

(1st round:Human; 2nd round: Rat,Ox,Tiger ; 3rd round:

Rabbit,Dragon,Snake; 4th round:Horse,Sheep,Monkey; 5th

round:Cock,Dog,Boar)
[6]
-Deciding by lot...I understand that the challenger have the right to

choose
-But what'll come out by letting those Minus draw lots...?
[7]
[8]
-Then I choose "Mi" (the Snake)
-Let's go with the snake which deceived mankind
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
19~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-You chose the card "Mi",right?I understood.As expected from

Kumagawa-sama
-Choosing this card from the very beginning is nobody but only you
[2]
(kanji:Snake)
[3]
(kanji:Snake's lair)
[4]
-The general affair's battle form will be "Viper's den"
(text:It won't end peacefully..this battle,venom!!
-This is the most cruel form of battle we have prepared this time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note:so once again,there is a new character,Choujabaru Tokemichi
(I'm starting to doubt Nishio Ishin's naming sense Razz).
This guy uses honorific form of words all the time so it was such a nightmare for me.>"<

Not sure if my message was sent, but usually I have the afternoons free , with minimal coursework, so I can work on them then, also, weekends. Razz

Unless your sick or had a good reason this taking of days to finish a simple script and then not even posting a reason makes your scores drop to zero. Sorry to say but if i don't get an answer by tomorrow morning you fail, and unless you show major improvement in your work ethic I don't see you ever making it onto our team.

Well all the other applicants were timely and even if unable to complete in in a day at least told me so. If it takes them 4 days to proof the script thats quite a bit slower than what me and the others can do so why bother?

Well it's been six days since the script was posted. And we understand if there's a reason for it, however when something gets posted in the proofreader section we'd want to have the proofread version before six days are over. Thats nearly a week, if it was a weekly series it'd delay that series for an entire week.

(All will begin promptly at 1:00 p.m.)

(white text: Finally! The election is starting today!!)

-Normal students are forbidden from watching the battles for security reasons.
[2]
-Sheesh! That announcement! Although it is about whether the school be
destroyed or not…
-Those council members are still so thick-headed!

[3]
-So what now, Kurokami? It's time.
-How reliable are your partners?

[4]
-Secretary Akune and Treasurer Kikaijima are attending former President Hinokage and Aniki's training course.
-That hellish training course…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
02~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[1]
-Don't ask me what you already know.
-Haha! My bad! But… is it okay for you to ditch?
-Aren't you in the middle of training for the President Battle?
[2]
-...They asked me to cheer for their shares as well.
-Well, I can't let Zekichi fight alone, too.
[3]
-I see, I see. So…
-Where is Zenkichi-kun now?
[4]
-He decided to take another training course because that devilish training
won't be effective after a week.
-Does his absence mean he’s scared? He said he was scared
at the Underground, didn’t he?
[5]
-...If so, then just let him be. Maguro-kun said that, as well.
-I still think that losing the General Affair Battle by default is the best
idea.
[6]
-Well…
-That may be right, Mom...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
03~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-But too bad
(shirt: Unite as one! Victory for sure!! The student committee)
(white text: Arrive at the front line!! Those whose eyes hold no fear!!)
(small sfx: pant pant pant)
-I don't feel anything this time!!

(Chapter 67's title: We are the Student Committee)
[2]
-Waahh!I told you not to use the student committee's room for
changing!!
-Nah
-First you should do something about that shirt.
[3]
-Oh, I made that T-shirt for him the day before yesterday
-That makes sense!!
[4]
-Oh that's right. Thanks Mom! This is really great. It makes me feel better!
-His mother's shirt?!
-He likes it!?
[5]
[6]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
04~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Hmph. Just barely, mainly because both the T-shirt and the time put into it.
-Zenkichi
[2]
-So how is it , you didn't take Aniki's training, but managed your own secret training ?
-Your not saying its result is also insignificant, why?
[3]
-Whoa!
-I didn't expect such stupid question from you
[4]
-This one week I have taken a training from someone even greater
than Maguro-san.

-What you should do now is not worry, but prepare for my
victory celebration!
[5]
-A trainer that’s even greater than Aniki...? There is a person in this school
like that?

-It doesn't look like a joke if you have that much confidence but...
[6]
-I see. Then it's fine
-Let's go to the acceptance. Let's teach those Minuses! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
05~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-We're the student committee

(white text:Student committee's battle suit)
(bigger white text:RED model)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
06~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Student committee election hall
[2]
-Ah. You're late, Medaka-chan
-Shame on you. The rule said you must be in time, didn't it?
[3]
-...Kumagawa
- You're alone?
[4]
-Yeah. I'm so unpopular, right?
-The other Minuses are all sea bathing or something to enjoy

the holiday.
(sfx:turning page)
[5]
-Yay!
-Hitoyoshi-sensei. Found ya!!
[6]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
07~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-I was shocked that you ran away from me the other time. Aha!
-The truth is… I was so excited at the thought of being able to meet you that I
came here 5 hours ago.
[2]
-I went to buy porn with Emukae-chan in the end. I
found a book with a girl that looks just like you. Next time I'll bring it here
so that you can see it for yourself!
[3]
-...Okay
-Well, next time.
[4]
-Wait a sec, Kumagawa. Turn your face this way.
-Does the fact that you’re here mean that you will participate in the General Affair
Battle by any chance?
[5]
-It's not "by any chance" because I planned to do it, Medaka-chan.
-I dreamt of becoming a General Affair a long time ago.
[6]
-Today I'll be in your care, Zenkichi-chan.
-Let's have a serious and fair battle!
[7]
-As expected, they don't have proper formation...
-In the end, not losing the first battle turned out to be the worst
choice.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
08~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
[2]
-Someone like you...How could you turn out to be like this?
-Kumagawa!!
[3]
-Why are you angry, Medaka-chan?
-Because you can't fight me anymore? Or because Zenkichi-chan is in
a pinch right now?
[4]
-Those are included but...I'm asking you about everything!
Everything about you is irritating!!
-I can't understand even a single bit of what you're thinking!
[5]
-Massacring class 13!? Killing all elites!? Why do you want to do those
things!?
-World peace can't be obtained by doing those things, right!?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
09~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Whether elite or abnormal, they're all humans, just like us!?
-They feel happy, they feel sad! You can't hurt them like that!
-Why can't you understand that simple thing!?
[2]
-For Kurokami to be upset like this...
-No…, maybe her calmness exploded after knowing that he's
aiming for Hitoyoshi?
[3]
-If you can't, then don't force yourself to understand.
-Medaka-chan…
[4]
-What...
[5]
-But why did I become like this? Hmph
-Now think about it, it's such strange that I haven't thought about it.
[6]
[7]
-Yeah…For example
-Someone once said "One's life consists of pluses-minuses-zeroes"
[8]
-In other words, even an elite feels sad and happy or even a happy human
passes through the same amount of hardships as in happiness.
-They are all that. So I presume that he means to say
everybody is equal.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
10~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-But the one who said "One's life consists of pluses-minuses-zeroes"
-must be a plus.
[2]
-Because he was happy, he could say a phrase like a philosopher, such as that one.
-We minuses couldn't think that good things and bad things can all become nothing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
11~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-It's nothing. I just want everyone to be happy and positive people.
-To have a taste of that feeling.
[2]
-...That must be a lie, right?
-You just want to cling to that lie.
[3]
-...Right,
-It must be so…
[4]
-Anyway, I won't fight you, Medaka-chan. Because I hate you.
-The other loser will take the President’s Battle.
[5]
-So Medaka-chan just has to stand there and watch me pin
Zenkichi-chan to the floor.
-Closely and carefully.
[6]
-...Kumagawa!
-Because of that… you--
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
12~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-It's time now, so let me begin.
-Before though, I want to say I deeply appreciate you for coming all the way here, in spite of your business.
[2]
-Please allow me to introduce myself. I'll be in charge of the Student
Committee this time. I'm the Election Management Division's Vice-
Chairman, 2nd year, Class 13, Choujabaru, Tokemichi.
-I'm glad to work with both sides, even if, for just this one summer.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
13~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-....It has been a long time,m2nd year Choujabaru.
-Since April's election, right?
[2]
-My, my, Kurokami-sama.
-I'm terribly honored that you still remember someone like me.
[3]
-As you see, the Election Management Division, unlike the Student
Committee or the Discipline Committee, only works in the shadows. So we
want you to forget about us once the election is over.
[4]
-Moreover, I didn't think that I would be in charge of your election for a
2nd time like this.
-I swear upon my pride as a member of the Election Management
Division that I'll give you fair judgments .But I'm afraid that because
of this tension, there may have some incompetency, so please let me
know.
[5]
-Of course Kumagawa-sama,too. If you have any discontent
-I'll be glad if you let me hear about it.
[6]
-Hmph. Discontent, you say…?
-Being said so suddenly is just too…--
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
14~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
[2]
-What are you trying to say, Kumagawa-sama?
[3]
- Nothing, I just want to test your qualification of being the one in
charge. And you passed it well.
-Nice to work with you, Choujabaru-kun
[4]
-...Finally, you guys!
-Nobody but Choujabaru-kun should be the referee.
[5]
-The truth is… I was worrying about the Chairman interfering as the
judge.
-But if it's Choujabaru-kun, there's no need to worry.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
15~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Just like his name,  a strict person like that is rare.
-No pressure can affect his judgment.
-It'll be perfectly fair! Impossibly impartial! That's how he'll manage
this election for us.
[2]
-Now that I think about it, Choujabaru-kun is Unzen-kun's only male
friend, isn't he?
-Oh…Maybe they get along because they all prefer to rule over
humans.
[3]
-But in other ways
-There'll be no recovery for us if we lose here.
[4]
-It doesn’t matter whether class 13 is massacred or the school is destroyed. If class Minus 13 wins, Choujabaru will definitely choose them to be the student
committee without any hesitation...
[5]
[6]
-It's fine, Medaka-chan
-So we just have to win, right?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
16~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-It'll be easier for me if Kumagawa is my opponent.Much more easier

to deal with than Shiranui or Emukae.
-So Medaka-chan,you can just be impossibly cocky and solidly calm

as usual.
[2]
-Zenkichi...
[3]
-Hey, Kumagawa..I don't care about what you're saying here
-I don't know and do not want to know why you're doing these or
why you became like this.
[4]
-You, too. Don't think that people will understand you.
-You can just lose and being kicked out of this school without being
known.
[5]
-But because of that….
-I want to say something to you.
[6]
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
17~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Your life is positive.
[2]
[3]
-Then let's start the first battle of the student committee election, the

General Affair's Battle!
-By the way, please keep in mind that this election is based on

Kurobako cram school 's rules
[4]
-It's just using the Edo period's regulation as it was it's really
impossible. So I'll arrange the rules with my self-decision.
-Kurokami-sama, Kumagawa-sama, do you have any objection?
[5]
-No objection.
[6]
-No objection.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
18~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-Excellent.
-Further, In case there be injury or death, all will be deal as

accident. Do you have any objection?
[2]
-No objection.
[3]
-No objection.
[4]
-Excellent. Then, Kumagawa-sama, who is the challenger, please
choose the form of the battle.
[5]
-The Election Management Division has prepared 13 forms of battle

for the election this time. Of course those are all based on Kurobako's

rules.
-Kumagawa-sama, please choose one of these 13 cards as you like:

(1st Round: Human; 2nd Round: Rat, Ox, Tiger ; 3rd Round:

Rabbit, Dragon, Snake; 4th Round: Horse, Sheep, Monkey; 5th

Round: Cock, Dog, Boar)
[6]
-DI understand that the challenger have the right to
choose.
-But what'll come out by letting those Minus draw lots...?
[7]
[8]
-Then I choose "Mi" (the Snake).
-Let's go with the snake which deceived mankind.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
19~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
[1]
-You chose the card "Mi",right? I understood. As expected from
Kumagawa-sama.

-You have been the only one to choose this card.
[2]
(kanji:Snake)
[3]
(kanji:Snake's lair)
[4]
-The general affair's battle form will be "Viper's den"
(text: It won't end peacefully...this battle, Venom!
-This is the cruelest form of battle we have prepared this time.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Note: So once again, there is a new character, Choujabaru Tokemichi .
(I'm starting to doubt Nishio Ishin's naming sense).
This guy uses honorific form of words all the time so it was such a nightmare for me.

That's nice; I'll aim to beat it then. I never gave an excuse in regards to anything in this thread, mainly because you never gave me a deadline, and I wouldn't have missed the deadline; I've only stated facts. One fact being you've always just told me "there's no rush, but please try to get it done" or something to that effect(page one for reference). That is a fact. I've worked on it everyday that I had time granted my exam is tomorrow and I've had other assignments on top of the exam studying. That is also fact. Moku and Lion asked me to submit it today, I didn't know there was an alleged due date on said exam, but I did per their request. That is also fact. I copy pasted this like that because I don't know how to do spoilers. Fact. However amongst all these facts is the belief that, you should give an allotted time, instead of saying such a general statement, if you wanted it done in a few hours, obligation would've set in and I would've had it for you in said amount of time. I feel to put the blame on me is absurd, since in the truest regard, I had an assignment (the exam) , worked on it, and was not given a specified date of completion. I feel you'd agree with me on that, it's more practical and logical, perhaps we both made mistakes, for that I'm sorry. But when someone asked I submitted. Surely you didn't expect me to know of the routine here or how your pace is 1+ hours, or I would've matched it. So too long didn't read summary: --> No one's fault, worked on it, submitted when asked to submit specifically, since you didn't specify a date to submit when you spoke to me earlier. Which would've saved you all the hassle.

All of you act so surprised, but you forget this is my first time doing such a thing. I do wish ,Vegas, that you were more specific in giving me a time, whereas it seems many of you have been here for a while. I've learned I'll re-manage my time to be able to get them in, before a day. I don't really want to give excuses, because I don't know, it makes me seem like I'm working for a way out. I simply just needed specification instead of a general statement of what time is okay, and then a specific expectation like +1 hour from you all, if you understand that. Because it was merely a test, I didn't think you gave me an actual script. It's all fine though, I've read through all the comments and understand your grievances, I won't be upset at anyone regardless of what the judgement is.

Regardless, of everything, I do apologize. I shouldn't have taken so long I suppose, regardless of outside obligations, even, and I'm sorry. I do hope I can at least get a fair judging.

I do not blame you for the amount of time taken but for the lack of notice or warning. A simple statement that you had to study or life interfered in an essentially volunteer and extraneous task. I apologize for the lack of an identifiable command structure and while my teammates and I are doing our best to fix these issues.
I'm sorry if it seems unfair if I said to take your time and not rush but in the business of scanlating that means a day or so. Us proofreaders get a product that's close to finished and we are almost always the last step before the words are put onto the pages so its important that we keep to standards like the rest of the group even if our job is just reading words on a page. DO NOT take my time as a guide instead simply aim for less than 3 hours total at first and try to get that time shrunk as you learn the ropes.

Now that my little explanation slash apology is written I shall grade your work.

Your work was good with few typos and only 1 sentence needing flow adjustment. One name was kept misspelled but as you've probably never read Medaka box that is not a thing to count against you. i give you a pass and i recommend that you team up with one of our other new proofers at least until you figure out how your schedule will work out and keep tests or stress from affecting your work.

p.s you raised a good point in how I left you hanging and as soon as possible i will have a new topic up where any questions can be asked of me and guaranteed answered in 5 or fewer hours after posting.
