Cute and funny manga, I like it and want to see more.
The translation is pretty good, it flows well and the fact she speaks in a somewhat more "archaic" way brings in a bit of a personality that sometimes gets cut off on translations.

The only thing that strikes me as a bit weird is that when she says things like "you cursed" and "curse you", she's actually trying to offend the knight, so I think "you damn" and "damn you" would be more appropriate, but then again I'm not an English native speaker, so YMMV.

In the JP she says "貴様/Kisama" so you're probably right that "damn you" would sound better than "you cursed (human)"
For the "curse you" one, she says おのれ/onore, so I'll leave that one as is

Here's a fine-tuned version, using a new font as well as including sfx text, text for dialogue outside of the boxes, and text on page 3 to see how it'd look, among other small changes.

I'm a big fan of the kerning on the new font. :flan-yea:

I'll start translating chapter 2 if we successfully upload chapter 1 to MangaDex
It seems that Aragae! Dark Elf-Chan does not exist in MangaDex's database and they currently do not allow users to add new series to the site, so I'm not sure what's going to happen.

I dont mind posting them here, its just that I'm worried about our work ending up being a waste of time because another group starts translating it thinking that no one else is doing it.
should we upload it to some random manga site?

:shrug: I'm just gonna move the translated parts into their own thread I think. Easier to read and better chance to appear on a google search.

Make a new category under Patrons of the Arts and call it cute and funny translations and put this and any further projects there. But still make separate threads for completed translations. We can just pin those threads.

I guess I'll start translating chapter 2 and just hope for the best.
that is for the best. I guess i also have a reason to keep making the mangadex-lite to host it on till we can post em on mangadex
