TRANSLATION: Macross Delta Vol. 1, Chapter 2


Well, this, the translation of Chapter Two of Ukyou Kodachi’s Macross Delta novel, The Girl of Al Shahal, look a little longer than I thought… for me, writing (and ESPECIALLY translating) is a lot like going to the gym… if I overdo it one day, it takes a few days to recover. And boy, did I ever overdo it in trying to get this done by the time the final episode aired.

So yeah, I didn’t make my self-imposed deadline, but it’s done now, and might help you to recover a bit from Post-Delta-Depression.

I literally finished the chapter about half an hour ago, so I haven’t proofread it or anything. I’m sure there are tons of typos that I’ll find as I go over it more over the next few days. They should corrected by the time I finish Chapter Three, whenever that may be (I’m guessing sometime in November).

Anyway, enjoy!

  1. Thank you for your hard work! I was really looking forward to this. These translations help soothe the void that the Anime ending has left me. I’m going to miss waking up to a new episode every Sunday. 😭


  2. Thank you very much!! I’ve been searching for the translations of the novel manga! I’ll be patiently waiting for the other chapters 🙂
    Btw, do you know where I can read the manga? I wanted to buy it but in my country its cost is pretty high :I


    1. You’re asking the wrong guy. I’m ALWAYS going to tell you (or anyone) to actually BUY the merchandise.

      I don’t think you can truthfully call yourself a fan otherwise.


  3. Thanks for the translations so far, started to listen love halation the war and ikenai borderline as I was reading this. It reminded me of the same excitement and happiness I felt when I watched the preview/first episode.


  4. Just recently found out about these translations! Thanks a lot for these. I’ll be the first to admit that Delta was a bit of a let down in the entire grand scheme of Macross universe… but I found myself really pulled into it anyway, probably because of the different cultures it introduced us to in the span of the entire series. So a novel that gives a peek into its world(s) is a treat to read. 🙂

    Curiously, have you heard that they’re putting out a new Macross animé next year? Already??
