  1. I say this is awesome! First time I saw the teaser of this, I got really frustrated that it didn’t become an active project then finally! Here you are translating it!

    — Thanks for taking it on! ^^. I’ll be awaiting for the updates~!

  2. Thanks for the translations! Are you doing the ln version btw?

  3. Are you /u/NefarianTL on reddit?

  4. thank you so much for translating this so far, and i can only hope for you to continue to do so, this is so amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. ohhhhh thank you for your hard work!! please continue….*DOGEZA*

  6. Before everything else, thank you! May i just ask if the one working on these projects is a team or a one man army?

    • Right now I am working by myself, but I’m always on the look out for people who can help translate ~ maybe I will make a recruitment page soon ~

      • That would be great. I like a lot of the stuff you are working on and would like to see translations progress at least a little faster. But I’m no slave driver so I’ll happily take what I can get for now.

        But with more people that will make more rapid releases easier.

        In any case thanks for all the hard work so far. 🙂

  7. Thank for ur great work…

  8. By raising his levels, his charms decreases. So how did his charms skyrocketed over 65k?

    • He caught protagonist syndrome when he leveled up. Symptoms include plot armor, abnormally high encounter rate with beautiful and omen, and excreting a potent pheromone that makes one irresistible to the opposite sex. The kind of illness all men dream of contracting.

    • Bad Coding? Essentially his original Charm Stat was at least 0 at the start, and by doing monotonous work (a.k.a. grinding) He accumulated enough XP to level-up at the cost of 1 Charm Point, but since the coding on his level-up ability does not cover the negatives so the -1 Stat automatically turned to max. Why 65535? That’s the max number coding, could recently employ.

    • it is a buffer overflow. it occurs sometimes in computing, you have a container that can only hold numbers from 0-10 so when you try to put 11 it either becomes 10 or it becomes 0. what happened is that the stat was at 0 so when he leveled it became -1. because -1 cannot be stored it wrapped around to the other end of the spectrum.

  9. I Just found it recently, and it good i like so..

  10. Just how many chapters are in volume 1?

  11. I was wondering, what kind of LN is this? 18+, PG-13 or without any of that stuff. I did not find any info on the googlez

  12. Please more chapter please…. by the way this novel became very popular in the Facebook group oda nobuna translation group so please put more priority on this one 😉

  13. It says sponsor – x/$60 raised. So is there no regular release schedule for the novel? If not, how much is each chapter cost?

  14. How often do you update this so I can add it to my schedule of the other 20 novels I’m reading. Thanks!!

  15. Umm. I have a question. When will be ch 41 edited?

  16. Thanks for doing this Novel! XD

  17. Hey Nef, where can I find additional pictures for this novel?

    • Hello, there, if you want all the pics instantly, you can always purchase the novel from Amazon.jp to support the author 😀

  18. Hey guys, some of you have been trying to post e-pubs, like I said, I don’t allow it, if you want to make it for yourself sure, but if you try to post it here i will delete that comment. thanks~

  19. sounds like The Gamer

  20. Is there some sort of a time table on when the chapter related picture links work again? Well I know the links work but there is nothing at the other side so I was just wondering.
    If you are open to suggestions you could do an image dump Google Doc. and put the link for it in the TOC page.
