JNC had taken down their access to the novel last week on Sunday and now Amazon has followed suit as well, meaning the English LN versions can’t be officially purchased anymore. As such I have re-enabled the older chapters on this blog. They can be accessed via the Table of Contents as before. 🙂
after the champion Germany, the vice-champion Argentinia and the european champion Portugal got kicked out off the World Soccer Championship tournament, let’s enjoy a new chapter of Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de!
Let me also welcome TsundereRic as new editor for the series. He has edited this chapter as well as the previous Chapter 84.
P.S.: As we are approaching July 1st rapidly, could those reading books over at JNC tell me if JNC pulls down the series completely tomorrow or such, so that I can put up the older chapters again. Thanks~
I’m still looking for an editor or two for this series. Ideally, I’m planning to have a team of 2-3 editors help out with this series to lower the burden per person and to increase the accuracy. Requirements: Native English, dedication for a long-term project and availability on a regular basis. You can contact me via mail at email@example.com or chat me up on Discord. 🙂
it seems like J Novel Club officially announced today that they are suspending further releases of Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de. Well, I guess that’s a reasonable step for a company that depends on its reputation in the online community. I feel a bit sorry for them as they managed to acquire the license for a novel that might have become a big hit just to end up in front of a pile of shards.
Personally I never cared about the authors of the books I read or translate which is probably also why I never read an autobiography in my entire life. If a story is good, I read it. And I think Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de is a good story. As far as I have seen it doesn’t propagate any problematic racial or ethical statements and as such I will translate it for those who want to enjoy a good story just like me. Of course, if I see that no one wants to read it, I will simply drop it again. So it’s up to you whether this story gets translated or not. ^^
For those who have a problem reading a story because of what its author did in the past, simply don’t read it and don’t bother coming here to discuss it cause your comments will be deleted and/or you will get banned. There are plenty other forums and such where you can vent your frustration for all I care.
I have re-enabled the chapters starting with volume 4 of the novel. If you want to read the chapters before that, you can purchase them over at J Novel Club.
The schedule will be irregular like Hakai no Miko (in other words, you get a chapter when I got time outside the regular releases) for now until Summoned Slaughterer ends.
P.S.: I’m looking for a dedicated editor for this series now that it’s back again. Requirements are: native English as well as will and dedication to invest into a long-term project (still more than 300 chapters left after all). Mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on our Discord server, if interested.
And here I was browsing the twitter feed of Ido Masa, the author of Summoned Slaughterer, and suddenly stumbled upon those news. Well both authors publish under the same label, HJ novels, so I guess it’s only natural that the author of SS would forward an official announcement of HJ Novels.
Probably some of you already know, but Nidoume no Jinsei wo Isekai de gets an Anime starting in October this year, see here.
At least it now makes sense why J-Novel Club has picked up that series, which had already around 15 volumes at the time they announced their licensing, and is pushing the release rate of the novel volumes (currently they are half through volume 3 after less than a half year since starting).
I suppose it helps to have connections to the industry. 😉
