Public service announcement.

Volume 1 has been edited, and so the pdf/epubs are ready to be released… As soon as I can get my hands on the pdf/epubs makers. Volume 1 PDF is now out. Also keep checking for errors, it’s entirely possible the editors may have missed a few things here and there. (If there are still mistakes then all editors on staff will be put into a cardboard box and forced to read slice of life till their eyes bleed.)

I recommend getting the pdf, since all pdfs will have cleaned and translated illustrations the site may or may not have, subject to me remembering to put them in. (I did for volume 1).


Like this.


We’re currently experiencing technical difficulties.

Short reason why there have been a stunning lack of updates: I’ve been busy and will be for the foreseeable future.


Long reason why there have been a stunning lack of updates: Between being called back for military duties and shifting houses, there hasn’t been a lot of free time for me to sit down and type stuff out. And when I do sit down I’m more likely to play civ5. Also, the new place I’m at will not have internet till the 11th August, so all I have is my (admittedly fast) 4G cellular data.

Also, for those who prefer reading their LNs in book formats, I’ve been working with editors and typesetters on epubs and pdfs for volumes 1 and 2, so expect an announcement on those soon.



Cast details

Like I mentioned earlier, there is a killer cast of seiyuu onboard the upcoming anime. The official site has been updated with more cast details, so here they are.


Raishin – Shimono Hiro


Yaya – Harada Hitomi


Charlotte – Takamoto Megumi, Sigmund – Jouji Nakata


Frey – Asumi Kana


Loki – Okamoto Nobuhiko


Kimberly – Itou Shizuka


Shouko – Yukana


Irori – Kayano Ai


Komurasaki – Ogura Yui


Holy mother of pearl those are some serious seiyuu. ALSO, KANA HANAZAWA AND TAKAHIRO SAKURAI ARE IN THIS. Cancel ALL your fall plans, watch this show.

Do not adjust your sets

Normal service should resume shortly.

Machine Dolls are unbreakable…


but translators aren’t, so I’ll be taking a break. I’ll be gone for 2 weeks (12th till the 25th). In that time there will (most likely) be no updates, so take the time to re-read stuff that’s already here.

2nd PV for UMD anime

I see no sign of henriette. This probably means the anime’s source material will stop at volume 2.

Cast members for UMD announced!

Raishin – Shimono Hiro

Yaya – Harada Hitomi

Charlotte – Takamoto Megumi

Sigmund – Nakata Jouji

Frey – Asumi Kana

Loki – Okamoto Nobuhiko


PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET NAKATA DO HIS SOL BADGUY VOICE FOR SIGMUND. Also, Raishin and Yaya are voiced by Akihisa and Himeji from baka testo. This should be interesting, to say the least. The anime is set for a fall release, so it won’t air during this (summer) block.


Chapter 2 of volume 1 has been updated to 3/7 as of now. If you check back in a couple of days it might mysteriously complete itself.
