A Few Changes

You may or may not have noticed that I changed my wordpress theme.

It has ahem been brought to my attention that some readers find my chapter post confusing. Specifically speaking, it is unclear which series does each chapter belong to. Well, the information is actually there already, in the post category, but I can see how it can be hard to find, so I changed the theme to one that shows the category a bit more prominently. There are surprisingly very few of those in the wordpress themes catalog, which actually irks me a little bit.

Secondly, I’m moving Oukoku and Yandere to main! *pops party poppers*. It’s little more than a formality at this point since I’m already updating those as frequent if not more frequently than my other ostensibly main projects. So what does this mean? I’m not too sure actually, but I guess you can be more sure that I’ll continue to TL them for as long as I’m in this whole TL thing (or until I say otherwise). That and I’ll be putting percentage progress on the sidebar like I did Saekano.

What about Takarakuji? Well, I’ve been messaged by another group who already got hold of a copy of the LN, who says they want to TL it. I might be handing the series over entirely or maybe do a WN version/LN version thing like many others are doing, I don’t know yet. Let’s wait and see.

  1. Hmmm, I prefered the previous layout, but I do enjoy knowing what I’m about to read…
    I’ll just assume that I’ll never be happy…

    (Thanks for your work! 🙂 )

  2. My problem with knowing what chapters belong to what series is when they show up in my WordPress feed. It’s just Chapter 7 this and Chapter 6 that. It would help if you put the series name in the chapter title, or used a category that shows up.

    1. the categories do show up in my rss reader, I’ve no idea how it looks in wp feed reader.

  3. Keep up the good work.. Love the new themes but somehow I was removed from following your wordpress… I wonder if it’s because the changes in themes?

  4. Greatings, I’m ChocoManga
    I’m looking for Japanese Translators for translating Guin Saga. The Novel series is 132 volumes and 22 Side Stories.
    Of the raws, I have 1 to 89 + 96 + 129-130 and 15 Gaiden. As well as Books 1-5 English Licensed.
    Many hands make light work, so please don’t be intimidated by it’s length. I plan to gather enough of a group to make it easier, otherwise, take things one at a time.
    You can consider this a joint project if you’d like, and I’d add your banner to my site.
    This is a one of a kind Novel Series (longest in the world), hasn’t been translated to English beyond book 5, it deserves to be shared.
    Book 1 Licensed:!FY5EzagI!xW6bulGTtMkOyxxcKhyE-SsQi7nUGSsm7Z4b3GrfRyc
    Book 1 Raw:!VdxlHDaQ!8ZdSUmuSfA7uXvWDlggevWJQMFMAQYZ2B_D0M_GKa9o
    Translations will start at Book 6:!ERAkzS4D!mZgYZqilKTeFL2n7bjFb1FfC2PrxjGNmXzti8EB9ur4
    Please E-mail me, or join me on the chat if you’re interested. Feel free to check out the site as well.
    I look forward to your reply (Approval or Denial)

  5. Oh godz, I’m fearing that this site is going to die too like the others cuz of sudden disappearance of translator san,

    Don’t worry you’ll be missed.

  6. Hello, I would like to make a suggestion but I don’t know where I can post it, can someone tell me or send me a link ?

  7. Sorry to ask, but you wouldn’t happen to still have the raws of Chikyuu Tenseisha no Koroshikata saved somewhere would you?
    I think I’ll be done with web novels for a while after having read it.
    It was really amazing, and the translation was also frigkin amazing.
    If translations are nothing more than the translator creating a new piece of work using the base, and the ideas of the original work, that I think that your interpretations of web novel was amazing, and carries its own will to convey the ideas the original author wanted to present, rather than making the Japanese turn into English without care of conveying the ideas of the author. In terms of conveying ideas, I love your english the most out of all the translators I’ve read who translate web novels (You wouldn’t happen to have a hidden royal road fiction, or space story would you, I’d love to read it >.<).
    That being said Chikyuu Tenseisha no Koroshikata was probably the most meta, most engaging, and most entertaining (lol R-15 sex humor) translated web novel I’ve ever read (alot in due to your awesome translations [I think I’d like to say the same about Mushouku Tensei, but the translations just died and failed to convey alot, I think I’ll reread it in Japanese at some point]) It was so interesting with such a Meta plot or killing all the reincarnators, and he proceeds to do so by deconstructing the entire genre and comment on how a lot gods (authors now webnovels) fail to understand that they are dealing with humans and not puppets, by giving characters surrounding the MC of what would have been a shitty XIan Xia-eqse hot blooded shounen MC, back their urgency(or was agency the right word?) in life to become their own independent existences, rather than just as Ruby dreamt of being, nothing more than a doll an accessory of a human being attached to others. Decrying normalization of this trend, he used this plot to call out bullshit and lead his own personal crusade against how dehumanizing alot Isekai shit is.(Poor Emila from re;zero she just lol, stated that she was a human being, then just threw it all away because only Subaru can save her.)
    IDK want I wanted to say either way this story (your story) has really affected me. And Im really sad that it ended, I really wanted to see the end of this narrative about the destroying this entire genre in a world were story and reality mix.
    it times like these I can;t help but feel like I need to read this again so I don’t become stuck on this forever;
    seriously it’s something worth reading and rereading and rereading, if ya do read it can ya tell what you think of that guy’s writing I really love him.
    P.S: do ya have any recommendations for something as meta and coherent as Chikyuu Tenseisha no Koroshikata in the web novel scene? if not something else that meta would be cool too (No need to rec if on a winter’s night a traveler lol)
    Any thanks again for your translation of that series while it lasted I can’t thank you enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
