with me having ended the translation of Bookworm after it got licensed by J-Novel Club, I wanted to translate something new instead of it.
I chose Mismarca relatively quickly since it’s one of those novels I read first when I started reading Manga/LN back before I even started learning Japanese and translating novels myself. I liked the story very much and was devastated back then when any kind of translation had come to an end.
The novel itself is already a bit older (just as I’m lol) and has finished at 12 Volumes + 1 Extra. It’s a work of Hayashi Tomoaki and also part of a bigger universe (though rather disconnected from it for the most part). Yoraikun has translated Battlefield: Masurawo and is translating O-Ri-Ga-Mi, both part of the same universe. So don’t be shy and check it out here: https://yoraikun.wordpress.com/
As the chapters are fairly long, I will split them in parts as I do with all my series that have long chapters. Release day will be Thursday, on a weekly base. I know there are some translations of the first odd chapters out there, but I will start from scratch. I hope you will enjoy the journey as readers. 🙂
Also, please extend your thanks to ApoWo who has joined me on this new endeavor as editor! 😀
Now enough from me, enjoy part 1 of 3~
This second part mostly covers the content of chapter 95 of the WN, so you can probably skim through it. There are only few changes.
However I must say the pacing is much better with the Light Novel. It actually makes me enjoy translating the series again. Chapter 2 majorly diverts from the WN, so you should definitely read from there, if you skip around after I switched to the Light Novel version.
This chapter has been edited by Ant.
A short info: Volume 8 of Spearmaster comes out in Japan on 23rd April. 🙂

Well, all good things come to an end. Sadly this applies to this fan translation of Ascendance of a Bookworm as well. It was a short journey, but well, that’s how life goes.
Let me use this opportunity to advertise the follow-up project for Ascendance of a Bookworm that will start from next week on:
I will translate Tale of Mismarca Kingdom. It’s a fairly old series that has finished at 12 Volumes + 1 Extra Volume. You can already check the Table of Contents here. There exists a manga of it and the first 2 or 3 chapters of volume 1 have already been translated elsewhere a few years back, but I will start from the scratch.
Give it a chance and check it out!
The final chapter of Bookworm has been edited by ApoWo, Endless and Terrin!!
P.S.: And here one last goodie from me:
