  1. I do like the story. It does remind me of F. They seem to have a lot in common, but I do already see a lot of differences as well. As always your translations are wonderful to read. I honestly think of all the translated stories I have read you are one of the best. Thank you for all the work you do for those of us to old to learn a new language.


    • Aww, thank you, as always.

      I don’t think people ever really get too old to learn a new language (but yes, it does get harder), but I’m always happy to be able to share a story I personally enjoyed. (cough(and hopefully get more people to support the author so they’ll maybe write more)cough)
