Hi! I tried translating one of NEWS' nonsensical MCs!

I translated this for a friend but I thought it would be wasteful if I just shared it with her...

However, I'd like to point out that this is a rough translation that is far from perfect and it has plenty of mistakes since I'm still learning... But if you don't mind that feel free to check it out!

You can read it here!

If you'd like a more clear and brief summary of this MC though, I suggest double_parka's post here.

If you'd like to tell me any mistakes & change them please message me so I can do so!
