It looks incredibly silly and does nothing to inform the audience but is ultimately not a big deal.

True, I suppose the majority who is picking up the mangas are people already familiar with the character, so it's not gonna cause any real confusion.

I'm also considering the fact that people not familiar with the series picking up Forbidden Scrollery have much more to be concerned about than name discrepancies from a series they don't know.

Ditto.
The large amount of cameos, for example.

So, aside from the Hiedano thing, how is it?

Arranged it so that I got mine as a Christmas present and finished it during today's lunch break. It was a pleasant read.

Kosuzu is so very precious. I can see why people like her despite never appearing in games and having no spellcards. It also cracks me up that Mamizou's disguise is so easy to see through for the actual reader and you're just supposed to suspend your disbelief.
Byakuren starring in the closing one-off story but not actually being Byakuren but still reacting as Byakuren to the Tanuki's death in the end might have been the best part of it all

Actually, a Paperback listing for Vol. 4 along with an e-book listing for Vol. 5 appeared. With the current release schedule, we can expect Vol. 7 to come out in late May next year.

Megabump, but the final volume has been released. The first official Touhou translation is completed.

So, anyone got all volumes? Anything interesting as far as translation goes? (Besides "Akyu Hiedano", that is.)

Finished the series today, had a very good time. You could say vol. 1 to 5 are mostly filler episodes to get you acquainted with the characters and setting so that the stakes are higher at the end. For the last 2 manga, Forbidden Scrollery picks up the pace and goes somewhere.
I didn't find any names or phrases of which the translation offended me. There was always a register at the end explaining a few mythologies or proverbs that were used. I assume that wasn't in the original japanese?

I've got all of the volumes buried throughout my stack of unread books. I've read the first three in hard copy and I don't have any particular comment about the translation, but I'm not very knowledgeable about that kind of thing.
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.
