Chapter Title: “If You Want Donuts, Prepare for Despair”
Japanese: 疾走する青春の絶望ジャンクフード (lit. the dashing/sprinting youth’s despair junkfood)
This title is a reference to the light novel series entitled 疾走する思春期のパラベラム (lit. parabellum of the dashing puberty–or something to that effect). We didn’t feel like that would mean a whole lot to much of anyone, so took it a few steps away from the original. The “parabellum” in the LN’s title comes from the Latin saying “Si vis pacem, para bellum,” which means “If you want peace, prepare for war.” Now, we figured that was something people would recognize, so we based our translation off that.
