What is this madness? Already more Qualia? You bet! This came about in a twist of fate where my buddy decided to translate not one, but two chapters in the same day! 03 is still awaiting for editing and what not, so it might take a bit, but who knows. Maybe tomorrow, maybe the weekend. Anyway, this came about to being after we saw how everyone over the Internet really enjoyed the first chapter. This includes our yuri lover bros at 4chan who were doubting our ability to deliver (lol). It’s surprising, and somewhat funny, to be honest, that Qualia 1 managed to pull almost the same number of people to our website than our most popular “day”, when MIX 11 and 12 came out one after the other. Unknown Tsunashima manga with lesbians rivaling one of the most famous mangaka of all time? You bet!
Anyhow, one particular user messaged us on Batoto saying Murasakiiro would be more akin to ‘Violet’ than ‘Purple’, and he does have a point there. However, we went with ‘Qualia the Purple’ because that’s how the authors ended up calling it. It’s certainly engrish-y, but hey, just like Attack on Titan, I’d say it has… its own charm, lol. But anyway, it was an interesting point, because Violet could definitely be seen as a ‘rarer’ shade of purple, which probably would fit well with how mesmerizing and uncommon Yukari’s eyes are.
Also, still about the title, “Qualia the Purple” is quite ENGRISHY as I said above. Qualia, for those of you who don’t know it, is basically a term used in philosophy that refers to inidividual instances of subjective, conscious experience. Or so Wiki says. Basically, think about it as a term that refers to how each thing seems to each individual. If we were to make an actual translation of the title, it’d be “Purple Qualia”, or, more accurately, “Violet Qualia”. I’m unsure if people think this warrants a v2 of the first two chapters myself, but hey, comment away? haha.
And enough talk! Head over to the sidebar, pick your preferred method of reading and enjoy more Qualia. Until next time, cheers!
