Nothing much to report. The project is moving along. Thanks to Soyokaze for doing the scans.
I've made the decision to stop doing the sound effects in this series, for several reasons. First is, I'm lazy. Second is, they're mostly plane sounds and you know what planes sound like. (Not to mention it's quite easy to find out what these particular planes really sound like.) I do have mixed feelings about leaving them out. I don't want to sound too weeaboo about this, but part of what makes the Japanese language rather suited to manga is its usage of onomatopoeia and related things. So I prefer to transliterate sound effects rather than substituting English equivalents. But at the same time, transliterations can be strange and distracting to readers of English. In this chapter, the Blacknoses go "ohhhh", which I interpret as some sort of hum. And in a later chapter, the Cub goes "bonyoyoyo", which I think you'll agree is pretty weird. To sum up, leaving them out altogether is a way of sidestepping the issues.
Of course, in scanlation nobody handles sfx the same way. It ranges from the hands off treatment (i.e. "learn the kana"), to putting a translation in the border/corner, to full-blown redrawing. Every approach has a drawback, I feel. We don't live in a perfect world, after all.
