The Spearmaster and the Black Cat – Chapter 74: Demonic Steel-City Holkerbaum

So yea, after discussing what to do after Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de had to make an unplanned exit from our line-up, we were discussing what to do next, and Marco mentioned this novel, which hasn’t been translated for more than 4 months now. Then I remembered it as well as it was down my line in brutality and darkness, at least the first chapters that I did read.

So, to get off my thoughts from sulking over Nidoume, I did what a translator can do best and delved into translating something. And this is the product of me working off some stress.

If you people like the translation of this series’ I will seriously consider continuing with it as it has an interesting writing style which I don’t have among my current projects yet.

Well, have a look and tell me what you think…

Translated by Shasu and edited by Marco.

Update: Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de licensed by J-Novel Club

Heyas folks,

today I was contacted by J-Novel Club that they licensed Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de.

Here a little extract:

You may have noticed on the news, but we have now licensed Nidome no Jinsei from Hobby Japan, and have begun releasing the series officially.

As is our usual procedure, I’m emailing you to request that you remove your translations of the portion of the web novel that correspond to volume 1 from your website, and when we begin to translate volume 2, please remove those chapters as well etc…

I took some time to consider the options and also discussed it with the team and we decided to stop the translation at this point in time.

Some may ask “Why?” as it clearly states above that the content that isn’t released by J-Novel doesn’t have to be removed. But as translator I don’t feel like starting to play a game of cat and mouse. And unless I up my release speed, which I naturally don’t intend to do as that would affect my other projects, J-Novel would catch up in about 2 years or less with my progress (going by their release speed of other series’). By that time most of the series would be an empty husk with most of the content being removed from this blog. So yea, no point in that as I’m usually going for the long run and not short term.

I have two chapters in stock of which one will be released in a while and the other one regularly in two weeks time.

I’m sorry towards all those who supported this series being translated on this blog up until now, but just like with Yomigaeri no Maou and Black Summoner, I see no point in trying to struggle against an official licensing and thus chose to make a clear cut at this place.

On the bright side, it also offers you the chance to legally support the author by buying the English books online.

According to their demand, volume 1 has been removed from this blog. The rest will follow in a few weeks time, so if you want to salvage anything, do it before you have to later search through the dozens of aggregator sites and e-pub blogs.

So what will happen next? A new series will come, naturally. I’m not into changing release speeds of currently running projects or hashing up old projects that are dormant due to me lacking motivation/reason to do them. I need my dose of alternating stories and styles after all.

One potential candidate will be posted later today, so look forward to that. 🙂

 

Many greetings,

Shasu

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Chapter 76: The secrets increase in a newly-married life – Part 1

Heyas folks,

here’s the first part of the next chapter. This time a “short” chapter with only 2 parts. The next one will be “a bit” longer again, so that we don’t get used to “WN-like” chapters!

On a side note, I considered editing the repetitive writing style of the author heavier last year. But recently it seems like the writing style of the author has improved or he got some coaching. He still repeats here and there but it doesn’t feel so annoying anymore (though his elementary-school type of writing still remains the same :p)

Let’s hope that stays a permanent change or even improves even more! 🙂

And with that, enjoy~

Summoned Slaughterer – Chapter 137: The Warrior Inside

What a day! Finishing to catch up with Fate Acrophilya, I wanted to start translating this chapter in the afternoon just to discover that my internet was down. Wondering what was going on, I saw that my router was dead. Even when I poked it a bit here and there, it still remained totally silent.

And thus I had to go buy a new router for around 220 bucks. I really love big expenses towards the end of the year after all… not. After setting the thing up, calling my internet provider, configuring everything and stuff, it was already late evening.

And what did I do after such a wonderful day? I sat down to translate a chapter of Summoned Slaughterer.

Enjoy it…
