Naze Boku no Sekai wo Dare mo Oboeteinainoka? - Volume 5 - Illustrations
I was going to typeset all of these, then I realized how washed up I was and stopped. I also realized that I could just number the text so you all could refer to the translation in text. Genius idea on my part to spare you from my horrid typesetting. Thanks Peace for cleaning even though I didn’t end up using those files. As always, please consider supporting the author by buying the raws from a website like https://bookwalker.jp/series/134738/list/. Also sorry for the delay on these, I was hoping the illustrations would be able to give you all (as well as me) a better view of where things are in the world and clarification on certain locations like Unclaimed Lands. I’ll have Prologue and tentative schedule out by tomorrow, but I don’t really have a set date for when I’m going to finish this series. That’s mainly because I’m trying to get as far ahead on (Naze Boku) manga translating as possible, and I’d have to push to get all of this volume done before school starts in late September. With that said, hopefully I can finish everything by no later than early October.
Text: “The Steel Graveyard”
Please note that when I say I can’t read something, it doesn’t mean I could read the Japanese and wasn’t able to translate it, but rather that I couldn’t even read the text because the picture was too low resolution. That’s also another reason why I decided not to typeset, because the typesetted text would be really cramped and hard to read.
1:「The more narrow-minded you are, the easier it is to stick together. Isn’t that right, humans?」

Interestingly enough, the “my” used in Epilogue 2’s title uses the pronoun “watashi” instead of “boku” for “Naze Watashi,” and you might have noticed that the title of this series is “Naze Boku.” This suggests to me that Kai is probably not being referred to here but most likely Rinne or some other female character. “Boku” is a male pronoun, so you’d expect Kai to be referred to in the title “Naze Boku,” whereas Rinne, the most important female character from the series up to this point, would use the slightly feminine “watashi” (pretty much guaranteed feminine in a casual context, which is probably the case here). I’m not spoiling though, as I haven’t read anything from this volume yet. Just pointing it out, since I feel like that nuance would get lost in translation. But whoever it refers to should be obvious by the time we get to that chapter.
