first off an important announcement, so take a short moment to read it.
Lately I have seen many comments from readers being unhappy with the author dragging on the Empire arc like this. To be honest, I have been fed-up with this arc for a while now, too. As such I decided to make chapter 98 the last chapter of the web novel I will release and at the same time I will start working on volume 10 of the Light Novel.
Volume 10 starts at chapter 95 of the WN and covers the entire content up to chapter 111 (well it cuts out most of the unecessary stuff while at it).
Naturally, taking up the LN will increase the probability of me being asked to take down the whole series by a publisher, be it Japanese or English (if one gets the licence for it). But I guess that’s a risk I will take. There are plenty of other good novels out there if it does happen.
Please notice that I don’t plan to go back and translate the previous LN volumes at the current point in time as that would take too much time. I haven’t checked the previous volumes, but going by the illustrations they have followed the story line of the WN more or less, with some additional content here and better phrasing there.
As I’m going to go ahead with the LN, I’d like to ask for one or two editor(s) to help me out with it. If you are an English native and interested in helping on a longterm, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
