(Black: The raw is slightly contradictory. The author wrote
早い = hayai which means of “fast” or “early” in English. It’s somewhere in between but not exactly on either of the two. The context of the first and second sentence states that “there’s no need to go to the other side if we’re just going to test the activation of the door. Also, it’s too early to gather information about that world yet”. This is the part where “hayai” is. But the last sentence states that “I was in a hurry the last time I was there, so I wasn’t able to know more about that world”, which is contrary to the previous two sentences. The word “hayai” is what makes this part contradictory because the meaning of the sentence can change depending on how it has been used. Based on my conjecture, this final version of the translation for this part is what the author is trying to convey.)
