Hey all, just a small post since I know some of you tend to exclusively keep up with us through this here site. We’re looking for a bit of feedback, so if you’d like to fill out this short survey, it’d be greatly appreciated! Hope you’re enjoying Angel Beats!
The day is finally here. After months and months of hard work, we at Alka Translations are proud to bring you our completed English translation of Angel Beats! 1st Beat. A lot of fun, love, and definitely some frustration has gone into this project for us. And it’s a momentous occasion for all involved!

Hello everyone! A very happy May to you, though I suppose it’s still April right now, isn’t it? So why, then, am I posting the May Status Report early? Well, I’m probably gonna be a bit busy during the final days of April, so typing this up closer to May just isn’t practical. Why not May 1st?… READ MORE
The words you’ve all been longing to hear since 2015 are at last in front of your eyes. With the wrapping up of the Matsushita route, our translation of Angel Beats is 100% completed.

You read that right! On April 1st, we posted a cheeky image of a Kud Wafter-ized Alka Translations logo to our Twitter account. Little did you wafools know, this was no prank.
Kud Wafter is going to be our 4th project!

Hello hello! It has been some time. We’ve had quite the month of February, haven’t we? As the title suggests, it’s time for another Monthly Status Report, so let’s get right to it, shall we?
So, for the final time for at least a few months, let’s talk Summer Pockets. As most, if not all of you know, Summer Pockets got its official release on Steam in February.… READ MORE
Right now, as I type this, the credits of Summer Pockets roll by. It’s 3:30 in the morning. And it feels to me like a chapter has officially ended, and is ready to turn the page to the next one. It all started with Clannad, one of Key’s earlier works. To keep it brief, I had dismissed most anime and its related culture for a good portion of my life.… READ MORE
Hello everyone! Happy early Valentine’s Day and Happy February! It definitely doesn’t feel like it’s been nearly a month since the last update post. What’s changed in a month, you ask? What’s new? Well, I’m here to tell you!
