Bound by Shooting Stars (Ryuusei no Kizuna) Novel chapters 1 and 2


If you want to be spoiled to what happens to the story, you can check out SARS Fansubs for the JDrama adaptation of the novel. Though it is already apparent in the first two chapters that the JDrama adapation and the novel are told differently. Well, the JDrama adaptation is where I got the interest in working with the original novel translations honestly.

A lot of special thanks to Ryusei no Kizuna LiveJournal community ( especially yanie02 & team ) for the original translations of the earlier chapters.

PDF / ePub

PS: Now that reminds me, I was the one that did the shooting starred karaoke-sfx for SARS Fansubs XD;; Though I kinda regret now that I chose such font for the English translations of the karaoke-sfx =_=;;

Tadaima~ We're back~ Status updates~

Yo! It's been awhile. So welcome to our new site. We'll probably use this for a long while given it's free anyway haha
So what's new besides always having low staff and the new site? Some were mentioned in the HanTsuki movie release post, but here is a more or less complete list:
  • Change of name to just SkewedS Translations as we are going to translate novels and other printed media now
  • We're now streaming our releases at Youku (fansubs), Batoto (manga) & Google Drive (novels).
  • Softsubbed fansubs, scripts available to the public
  • Testing of these kinds of encodes for fansubs: x265 for FHD, 10bit x264 for HD, 8bit x264 for SD
  • Change from literal to liberal translations (at least for me, Ais)
  • Stopping with reinventing the wheel
  • Experimenting with crowdsourcing

We're always looking for staff. Kindly consult the recruitment page for details that lists priority projects.

And here are statuses of some of the titles we are working on we can announce after the cut:
