That is the exact image I referred to. Not sure what thread it's in, though. I don't think it was ever scanned and translated else it would have ended up here.
It's a good thing Shizune is deaf, she is the only one who can stand (not) hearing "Wahaha~!" over and over.

Thanks a lot for the information, there, hir, it's much appreciated. Someone else will have to make the request, though, as I'm afraid that I can't speak Japanese.
There was a young clerk who took exception to Curzon's memorandum. He thought it was balls. But he was afraid to say so directly, so he scratched faintly in the margin, 'Round Objects'. Lord Curzon replied in a note: "Who is Mr. Round, and why does he object?"

Some information is in this thread, here's Aura on it:
Aura wrote:Found what it is: Himeno of Tamahime made a few pages of KS 4koma as a "copy book" omake release for their book in Comitia88, which was about a week after Act 1 was released. So yeah, the Japanese prove their speed once again, making doujins of KS less than a week after it was released. Too bad it's probably not possible to find more about it, as there was a *very* limited amount of copies of the omake paper, and they were printed with a printer at a paper store in the last minute, instead of an actual printing company.
There's one artwork in the shimmie here, which is actually some of Himeno's other characters in KS uniforms (compare this). And here is an actual drawing of Hanako by the same artist (I think), plus this looks a lot like Shizune but probably isn't.

Found this new image of the KS doujin:

...from this blog.

While searching, I also found this interesting mention of KS:
Knowing his frequent focus on the disabled fictitious singer, Lala, I offered him a link to Katawa Shoujo, which I had begun to watch since it got its official page. They had just released the first part of the game and I figured, "Maybe I can get him on common ground or something?"

He gave me the EPs and a reply in fairly well-spoken English:

"Hello! Thanks for your message.
I distributed two Watashinokoko EPs at Comitia88, the festival of comic and creation, a week ago.
If you want, I'll send you mp3 files of that via Yousendit.

By the way, I've already heard about Katawa-shojo, it's famous among the Otaku people in Japan, too.
I haven't played it, but the girls appears very lovely:)

Yoss"

Holy crap, the grade-school-level Japanese I picked up from watching anime actually came in handy for once. :shock: I'd give these a shot, but I know, like, five kanji.

どうもありがとう! 自分で翻訳だろう、でもウェブサイトの助けなしで、私は漢字の多くを知らない。しょうがないな〜

If anyone has a Danbooru account, you could post it there and request a translation. They tend to be pretty quick on the draw.

So, anyone willing to try translating? Someone from the Japanese translation team?

Barely managed to understand all the Japanese words here with a year of AGTH/ATLAS and Chinese education O_O.
