What's this? A chapter before midnight? Clearly the world is ending.

Important note: Since the next chapter (chapter 7) is pretty long, I am going to be splitting it into two parts. One will go up next week, and the other the week after that (hopefully, anyway). Sorry for the delay!

On with chapter 6!

Chapter Six: Team )

A couple of notes here:

First, when Rin is thinking about the "snap" of his kick - I wasn't exactly sure how to translate this, but luckily my quality control guy/swim-picker figured out what Rin was talking about. Unfortunately, it's been a few years since he's swum seriously, so he couldn't remember if there was another, more specific term I should use. So to any swimmers out there (I know there's a few of you!), if you know a better way to phrase that, please tell me so I can change it! :)

Secondly, a wild Kou appears! But since the furigana for her name didn't indicate that she called herself Kou, I am assuming that she hasn't yet decided to change her name, and so I went with Gou for this chapter. (Just in case anyone was wondering.)

And of course, please point out any mistakes/typos/just plain weird stuff, as usual.

Hey, everyone! I would have had this up sooner, but then sleeping....happened, and it got delayed a little. ^^; But hey, at least I made it before the new episode! (I think?)

I hope you all enjoy it.

Chapter Five: Stroke )

As always, please point out any mistakes/typos/just plain weird stuff :)

A quick note, because I've gotten a couple of questions about it: I include a link at the bottom of every post with a link to the site where I downloaded the raws of the novel. If you scroll aaaalll the way down, it's the very last thing in each post! Please let me know if the link/download breaks, and I will upload it elsewhere myself.

With that out of the way, have another chapter to hold you over for the last couple of hours before we finally find out what happened to Rei and Makoto. (Don't worry, this chapter is happier than the last one.)

Chapter Four: Relay )

I hope you enjoyed the chapter! Please let me know if I've missed any typos or other weirdness :)

I hope all of you survived the lack of an episode last week. We're nearly there! Hang on, Free! fandom!

And in the meantime, have another chapter.

Chapter Three: Free )

As always, concrit is welcome, but I refuse to be held responsible for any emotions you may or may not experience as a result of this chapter. That blame should be placed squarely on Ohji Kouji.

Since there's no episode this week, I wanted to make sure that I got this finished before Wednesday, so that you all could still get your Free! fix. I know it's not as good as an episode, but I hope it helps tide you over until next week!

Chapter Two: Water )

As always, any and all errors or awkwardness are entirely my fault, and concrit is welcome! And thank you to everyone who commented/liked/reblogged/tagged/etc'd chapter one :) You're all awesome!

Here it is, as promised! I know there's a couple of people doing summaries, but this is just a straight-up translation. I figured, since I have a lot of time on my hands right now (and I want to get better at Japanese), why not go all the way?

Without further ado, High Speed! by Ohji Kouji.

Chapter One: Swim )

Chapter two is about twice as long this one, and I translate sort of slowly, so I was thinking of splitting it up into parts so that I could get it posted a bit faster. If anyone has an opinion either way on that, let me know!

Please also tell me if there's anything that sounds awkward or that is incorrect in my translation, because I admit I'm not exactly fluent in Japanese, and I'm always trying to improve! Concrit is welcome. :)

Finally getting some translations up! I'm currently working on translating High Speed!, the light novel upon which the anime Free! Iwatobi Swim Club is based.

I've had these translated for a couple of days, but I didn't want to post them until I had something more substantial to go along with them. Fortunately, chapter one is all translated, and it should be going up in an hour or two, once I've had a chance to run it by my quality-control guy :)

Until then, I hope you enjoy these. (Warning: post has several large-ish images. Slower computers beware!)
