I’m a NEET but when I went to Hello Work I got taken to another world – Volume 1 Chapter 5

While translating this chapter, since it has a drill instructor and although the lines were in Japanese they sounded familiar, then it clicked.  Yes, many of the lines are almost word for word quotes from Gny. Sgt. Hartman from Full Metal Jacket but in Japanese. To preserve the theme I matched and used the quotes from the movie, with some rewording to accommodate the other world stuff though. Now read all the drill instructor’s lines in Ronald Lee Ermey’s voice, do you maggots understand?! >:)

I’m a NEET but when I went to Hello Work I got taken to another world – Prologue

Hello, this is my first own & proper translation of a LN from zero.
I’ve done some TL work for some mangas and WNs here and there too.
Don’t expect any quick daily machine translated shit from me.
Also since this is a personal project it might not be as polished as other translations with proofreaders and editors working on it. But at least it won’t be some Chinglish or barely readable machine translated gibberish trying to pass as a translation.

I’ll be translating from the LN source instead of the WN, although the early few chapters I’ve looked at are almost identical.
The Prologue in the WN and LN are practically the same, except for the character data sheet is an illustrated page in the LN whereas the WN is in text format with some extra data which I’ll try to retain. Also there are minor changes to a few lines here and there, but nothing critical.
