Imperial wars and my stratagems – Chapter 1: Waking up and that place

Evenin’ everyone,

it’s spring and Shasu-kun is once again re-thinking his entire line-up. So I browsed through Syosetsu and was disillusioned seeing how little worthwhile novels there are.

Well, originally I wanted to go for Paladin of the End, but just as I was re-translating chapters 1~4 someone picked it up. My luck, I guess. Wasted efforts, but oh well, whatever.

So next I ran into this little one. Though calling the novel little is kind of an understatement. The author started in June 2016 and already got almost 200 chapters written down. Well, you will see yourself, but these are short. Kind of like Black Summoner. Takes me about 1-2 hours to translate a chapter, so, it’s a nice series’ to do in-between when a change is needed. The tags (added them to the ToC), it has, are nice as well. It’s heavily referencing to Chinese history though, so I have put it up as teaser for now, to see whether I can handle the translation without issues. I checked NU and it doesn’t look like anyone is on it, but if I’m wrong about it, please do tell me.

I will add another teaser in a few days. Though that one has really long chapters. Almost as long as Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! though I think it’s much better.

Well, we shall see. I translated up to chapter 3 of this series’ already but I have no time to edit chapter 2 and 3 today cause it’s getting late.

Anyways, |>> Enjoy <<|

Summoned Slaughterer – Chapter 87: Walking Disaster

New country, new victims…

 

Translated by Shasu

Terminology Change:

With all the different beastmen tribes etc. I feel like there is a need to streamline the terminology a bit.

The race with no specific gender or tribe: beastmen
The race with no specific gender but a defined tribe: <tribe> beastmen, e.g. tiger beastmen
The race with defined gender but no specific tribes / group of mixed tribes: beast<gender>, e.g. beastwomen, beastmales, beastgirls, beastboys, etc.
The race with defined race and tribe: <tribe><gender>, e.g. tigerman, bearwoman, rabbitgirl, wolfboy

As for the regular animals, they will be simply called by their type, e.g. wolf, bear etc.

This should make it a bit less typing intense and a bit clearer.

Kakei Senki wo Kakageyo! – Chapter 18: Spare time to read the newspaper is something enjoyable

Heyas folks,

finally got to finish this chapter of Kakei Senki wo Kakageyo! This chapter marks the end of the first arc (called First Act by the author). Well these acts are equal with the Light Novel’s released, so you can also rate it as end of volume 1 of the Light Novel. The next story would be an interlude. But, well, you know my relationship with interludes… so yea, let’s skip that.

What’s interesting is the way the author finishes this arc. Chapter 1 (which is the real start of the series’ as chapter 0 is more like a prologue) starts with Lauri’s view and the title is about newspapers as well. And the last chapter of the arc is  Lauri’s view as well with such title. Well, nothing major, but I like such small details. ^^

Same as with Summoned Slaughterer I have no illustrations of volumes 2 and 3. I have no problem buying them as digital copy on some Japanese site but only if you provide the funds (you can use the donation button at top of the left sidebar as no one ever uses it anyway). 😉

Well, enough of my babbling… |>> Enjoy the read <<|

News: Light Novel Volume 6 of Summoned Slaughterer

Heyas folks,

today a bit slightly interesting news. On 24th January the author announced the release date of Summoned Slaughterer Vol 6 of the Light Novel and unveiled the cover art.

It will be released in Japan on February 22nd and the authors summary was like “while volume 5 has a somewhat warm feeling, volume 6 will show Hifumi right in the middle of a pool of blood.”

Without reading ahead I suspect this volume to start around chapter 100 of the web novel. Well enjoy the cover art. This time it is really decent and the major reason I posted this news update in the first place.

 

Greetings,

Shasu

Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! – Chapter 55: Beginning the development of the Baumeister Earldom

Heyas folks,

another week, another part of a chapter of Hachinan tte, sore wa nai deshou! This chapter will be split in 2 parts. If I had more time today, I could have finished it in one go, but you know how RL works…

Oh well, one little change: Instead of calling it Earl Baumeister territory, it will be Baumeister Earldom, likewise I will call a Baron territory as Barony. Why? Because always typing “territory” annoys me, I guess.

Depending on my schedule next week, I might finish this chapter during the week, but at latest it will be on Sunday as usual.
