The Spearmaster and the Black Cat

After a tear in reality pulls Kagari Shuuya into a white room he discovers a futuristic interface for reincarnating in a different world. After looking through the different races and skills he unlocks a new race, Lucival, a type of vampire with none of its characteristic weaknesses. All set to start his life in a new world, Shuuya is confused to discover that he is enveloped in darkness. As it turns out something went wrong when he was transported and instead of appearing where he was supposed to, he appeared in an underground cave. Shuuya faces untold dangers, runs for his life, before finding his way out of the underground world. After escaping he meets his Shishou and begins to learn to fight with a spear. There is also a cute black cat named Rollo.

  1. Thank you please soon

  2. You can do it!

  3. Thanks for picking up the novel, but now I went to start reading it the chapters 1 to 4 aren’t available.

  4. The link to Birdy is a little bit off. It should be at => https://birdytranslations.com/spearmasterandblackcat/
    without the kenkou…..

  5. Gustavo Salazar Barrios

    thanks for the chapters. Keep it up!

    • Well, originally I’m no big fan of putting the LN illustrations into centre stage because it cost me two series (Yomigaeri no Maou and Black Summoner) in the past. However, I will set up galleries for the LN illustrations for all my series once I got a bit time. I already downloaded a proper plugin for that.
      As for the actual illustrations of currently released chapters, those won’t be posted until the LN is finished content-wise in the translation to not spoiler other readers.
      I have checked Birdy’s gallery and it mostly covers what is available of volume 1 on Japanese blogger sites, though most of Volume 1’s illustrations are missing. As I haven’t translated Volumes 1 – 4, I have no intention to buy these just to extract the illustrations (that doesn’t include Patreon events though). Thus, once the content of Volume 5 finishes being translated, I will put up the illustrations of volume 5 in a separate gallery. Hope you can live with such compromise. 🙂

    Hopefully this wont get dropped again. Its not the best novel but its still good. When Birdy dropped it outta nowhere it was suuuper disappointing. At least this has better tanslations this time around. 5-73 were rough. Not bad but still..

  7. Do you have any plan to re-translate early chapters, because the translation make my eyes hurt
    If not it’s OK just try to ask

    • At this point in time the full series has 450 chapters, the author currently updates at a rate of 2 chapters per week.
      I know that the quality of the previous chapters is bad, but if I were to go back re-translating all these chapters, I wouldn’t be able to release any new chapters for a while, which most of the readers wouldn’t like either, I suppose.
      So for now I will leave it untouched and maybe get back once I get in range of catching up with the author which will probably take a few years though. xD

  8. Thanks for picking this up. Glad i found this site since i thought nobody picking this up since the last translator drop this wn last year. The best translated wn for this site.

  9. Do your best translating this WN
    Hope you don’t stop mid way
