Today I received the following two books in the post:

Two books, "written" by characters the depicted on the covers, in the Trick Universe

Two books, “written” by characters the depicted on the covers, in the Trick Universe

After tearing the packaging to pieces (my process of retrieving items from overseas packaging), I proceeded to quickly flick through them both.

After a quick flick, I’ve decided to translate the both of these books. I’m starting with the book on the right (なぜベストを尽くさないのか [Why Don’t You Do Your Best?]) first as it’s filled with silly things like: “How to be the best at writing while eating on the toilet”

Who could turn down the offer to translate that?

I’ll post the translations on here, when I’ve done them. I know that this project is going to take some time, though. So I’ll post sections as I complete them, along with the full document at the end.

Peace out,

J
